Head Instruction Work
A safety drive will be staged In
Heppner on Saturday In connection
with the police department Girls
from the movie colony of Holly
wood, dressed in police uniform,
will work with the police.
Evelyn Hunt, "Miss Personality"
of Hollywood, will have charge of
the safety campaign, Instructing
motorists on safety driving. Miss
Hunt is the holder of 34 personality
cups and other trophies. She is
also the winner of the Cecil B. De
Mille Personality Cup, carrying the
"Miss Personality of Hollywood" ti
tle. Local movie fans will remem
ber her as playing with Dolores Del
Rio in "Ramona;" with Jackie Coo
gan In "Buttons;" with Mary Pick-
ford in "My Best Girl;" and with
Ramon Navarro in "His Night"
In speaking of the safety cam
paigns, Miss Hunt said, "No, I am
not in the movies now. I am In the
'Talkies.' I talk every week to those
that are helping in the safety first
drives, and lots of times talk with
drivers that are careless about their
driving and give them a copy of the
state headlight and signal laws.
This helps to prevent the large num
ber of accidents that occur from
failing to make proper signals when
turning or stopping. In one town
where I worked with the captain
of the motor police, we stopped 585
cars after they came around the
corner. Of that number 275 failed
to make a proper signal and 73
had their windows up and could not
signal at all.
"I find most everyone ready to
cooperate In our safety-first work.
Every one should help the police
departments when you stop to con
sider how few traffic officers you
have and how many automobile
drivers. You know It Is not only
the motorist but also the pedestrian
that causes accidents, by not obey
ing the traffic laws. When on the
highways they would, If they walk
on the left side, then the number
of highway accidents would be de
Statistics show that one-fourth of
the casualties of the United States
are cauBed from automobile acci
dents. They also point to the fact
that 74 per cent of the automobile
accidents happen at intersections
and dangerous highway curves
from wrong signals.

Miss Reita Neel of Heppner will
be queen of the 1929 Heppner Ro
deo, according to announcement
made today by C. W. McNamer,
president of the rodeo association.
Mr. McNamer considers the man
agement very fortunate In receiv
ing the official acceptance of Miss
Neel, signifying that this year's
show will be headed by one of Mor
row county's most popular young
ladies and a capable horsewoman.
Miss Neel is a Morrow county
product, being the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. R. A. Thompson. Born on
a Morrow county farm, she has
spent much of her life In the great
out-of-doors and is thoroughly fa
miliar with the life typified by
Heppner's annual fall rodeo. She
is at home in the saddle, and has
all the requirements to fill the
queenly throne with charm and per
sonality. September 26-27-28, the
days of her reign, should attract
one of the largest crowds ever com
ing to the rodeo, Mr. McNamer be
lieves. The exhibition given by the local
rodeo buckers at Ukiah the Fourth
is evidence enough to all who at
tended that all are In prime condi
tion to put on their part of the
show, Mr. McNamer declares. Tea
pot Dome, Colored Boy and Black
Diamond, who bucked in the finals
were all plenty tough for their
riders, and but one cowboy was able
to retain his seat and that only with
the assistance of the saddle horn.
The entire srting Is intact twenty-
odd in number, to challenge the rid
ing ability of all comers.
