Lexington is Royal Host
to Increased Numbers
at Annual Reunion.
There is no question whatever as
to the growing Interest In, and pop
ularity of, the annual reunion of
pioneers sponsored by the people, of
the Lexington community. This
was the third year the old timers
and former residents of Morrow
county were asked to accept the
hospitality of the good people of the
little city, and they came in num
bers far greater than was antici
pated. Former residents were there
from points far distant in Oregon,
Washington and elsewhere in the
Northwest, and It was indeed a gen
uine reunion of those who had for
merly been neighbors and pioneers
in this part of eastern Oregon.
Many were there this year who had
not attended heretofore, and it may
have been that some faces were
missing from among those who
were present In former years, for
the ranks of the pioneers are be
coming thinner as time goes on.
But it was very evident to the Gaz
ette Times reporter that the very
large number present were enjoying
the occasion to the limit There
had been no great effort made in
the way of formal entertainment,
though a short program was given
following dinner In the afternoon,
and at night a play was given, fol
lowed by a real old-time dance. The
splendid feature ot it all was the
informality, placing everyone on the
plane of congeniality. Much time,
therefore, was spent In visiting and
recalling old times, all of which was
a genuine joy to the old and young
At noon the banquet tables were
spread in the new I. O. O. F. build
ing. And my! such an abundance
of good things had been brought in
that the tables were fairly overload
ed. The center table had been re
served for those of the pioneers who
had passed the age of 70, and when
all of these had been seated, It was
found that quite a number of plates
yet remained, so ribbons were pin
ned on others not quite so old and
the table filled. In the center of this
table was the magnificent three lay
er cake, the handiwork of Mrs. Fred
Kuns, which was the object of
unanimous praise because of its ex
cellence and being of sufficient size
that each individual about the table
where 80 were seated had a gener
ous helping. Mrs. Kuns was the
maker of this "Pioneer" cake at
last year's reunion. As Indicating
the large attendance, the ladles re
ported feeding 800 at the noon ban
quet Then there must have been
gathered up the traditional 12 bas
kets full, as In the evening supper
was served to 700. This exceeded
last year's attendance by about 200
at each meal.
The afternoon program consisted
of community singing, a talk by
Aunt Sarah Booher, telling of some
Interesting pioneer Incidents, some
singing by the grade pupils of Lex
ington school, featuring Hallowe'en,
"The Old Family Album" In which
Miss Ruth Dlnges presented mem
bers of the family In various poses
and showing styles of dress and
photography of a period somewhere
around the early nineties and per
haps beyond, the characters all
well sustained by local talent This
feature of the program was thor
oughly enjoyed. C. A. Minor gave
the chief address of the afternoon
which was presented in his usual
reminiscent and humorous style.
Mrs. Carl Miller was in charge of
the afternoon program, and was
also instrumental in making the
play of the evening the success it
The cast for "Aarpn Slick of Pun
kin Creek" was sustained by the
following: Mrs. Rosa Berry, a wid

name, Ruth Dlnges; Aaron Slick,
not so green as he looked, Joe
Thornburg; Clarence Green, a de

character In this play was well pre

from the large crowd present to
It had been planned to hold the
old-fashioned dance In the Oddfel

was too large and this was taken
to the high school gymnasium where
the floor space Is more ample, and
where some of the old-time enthu
siasm was made manifest in the
quadrilles and round dances.
The day was perfect, the crowd
jolly and good-natured and orderly,
and the entertainment excellent,
and to bring it all to a grand climax,
Mother Nature joined In with her
blessing of an abundant rain as the
crowds were returning to their

Some Progress Made on
Judge R. L. Benge and Commis
sioners Bleakman and Davidson, ac
companied by Roadmaster McCaleb
attended the meeting of the state
highway commission in Portland on
Wednesday and had an opportunity
to present to that body their claims
for aid on the completion of the
Heppner-Spray road. While they
did not get the relief prayed for
at this meeting, they received en
couragement, as the short report
carried in the Oregonian s write-up
of the commission's work for the
day will indicate. We give It here
"Request for more work on the
Heppner-Spray road was asked, but
as this is not a state route, the del
egation from Morrow county was
advised that the matter will be tak
en up with the forest service and
United States bureau of public
roads at the annual conference in
December. Morrow county has
money to contribute."
Our county court has been en
couraged lately by the attitude of
the forest service and bureau of
public roads, and this action of the
state highway points strongly to co
operation on their part when the
matter has been thoroughly worked
out which it should be at the De
cember meeting. Let us encourage
the court to keep hammering away,
for by so doing the desired result
will be accomplished.
The state highway commission at
this meeting also made distribution
of the market road funds. Out of
total of $548,552.82 in this fund,

LOCAL NEWS ITEMS
W. L. Norvell, located with the

Wednesday. His company, who are
billboard advertisers, have recently
Issued a pamphlet entitled "The
Preservation of Scenic Highways,"
In which they state their policy and
attitude regarding billboard adver
tising along the roads and high
ways. This company operates very
extensively in Oregon, Washington
and California, and they are facing
tne agitation that is growing rapid
ly for the doing away with such ad
vertising that has grown to such an
extent that much of the beauty of
the scenery along these avenues of
travel is covered up. Mr. Norvell
is Interested just now In placing his
company's literature on the subject

Work Still Experimenta
But Will Bear Watching
County Agent Says.
Perennial, noxious weed control
which Is giving everyone in Oregon
considerable trouble, was selected
as one of the main extension activ
ities by Charles W. Smith, county
agricultural agent in Morrow coun
ty this year. Sodium and calcium
chlorates, highly advertised chem
icals for the killing of perennial
weeds such as morning glory, Rus
sian knapp weed, Canadian thistle
and quack grass, have been tried
out on 17 farms during the season
on 40 different patches varying in
size from a few square rods up to
four acres. Last year Mr. Smith
tried the two chemicals on morning
glory In various sections of the
county and the morning glory on
tnree of the' patches was killed
that Is the old plants were killed
and the plants which came from
the seed were easily eradicated this
spring. However, in one case due
to some unknown reason, good re
sults were not obtained.
Notes have been kept during the
season on the morning glory.
check being made on the number of
years the plant had been growing
(because it is believed that the long
er the plants have been established
the harder they are to kill), date
ground had been plowed last, date
of last cultivation, the stage of
bloom the plants were in when
sprayed, time of day spray was ap
plied, etc., on all demonstrations. It
is hoped that next year after seeing
tne results obtained from this
year's application, more definite in
formation will be available as to
the time and rate of applications of
Some of the experiment stations
are recommending as little as two
pounds of the chemical per square
rod, while others believe that it will
take as much as three pounds.
Some maintain that when the plant
nas the largest amount of foliage
on it, or Just as it comes into full
bloom is the correct time to spray,
while others state they have had
very good results by treating in Oc-
toDer just as the plants have started
to die down. These questions and
many others can be answered next
year after the result of this year's
applications have been studied. In
practically every case where the
plants were treated in June, July
or August the plants came up after
spraying but died down later. Ac
cording to the manufacturers of the
sprays, this happens In almost ev
ery case when the spraying is done
In the early stages of growth and
the largest percentage of kill takes
place in the winter.
Although several hundred pounds
of the chemicals has been bought
by farmers this year and applied by
Mr. Smith In all sections of the
county, no definite results have been
promised by anyone as the work is
still in the experimental stage. A
survey of the county shows that
morning glory is to be found on 20
per cent of the farms and as culti
vation seems to cause it to spread
by dragging the root stalks from
one section of the field to another,
the control of these weeds is a prob
lem which needs immediate atten
tion. Morning glory is probably the
worst of the four weeds mentioned
and Is growing on some of the most
valuable alfalfa land along the
creeks and in the wheat fields.
The following farmers who have
cooperated In this work during the
past season and their addresses are
given by Mr. Smith so that the re
sults of the spraying may be watch
ed another year by their neighbors:
Wright Bros., Heppner; D. O. Jus
tus, Heppner; Ed Rietmann, lone;
Roy Nelll, Echo; John Brosnan,
Lena; Oscar Kelthley, Eight Mile;
W. H. Cleveland, Heppner; Harvey
McAlister, Lexington; Thompson &
Brown, lone; O. C. Wageman, Hepp
ner; Mlssildine Brothers, Heppner;
R. A. Thompson, Heppner and J. J.
"Snap judgment should not be
passed as to whether or not these
sprays are a success. Late next
spring after the chemicals have had
ample time to work upon the plant
roots will be the earliest that one
can tell for sure one way or the
other," says Mr. Smith.
Confusion in Weather '
Starts Molt in Flocks
Continued unseasonable dry wea
ther this fall has been blamed as
well as blessed In Oregon, by far
mers particularly. Now It is charg
ed with causing an extra molt In
many poultry flocks, according to
information gathered by A. G. Lunn,
nead of the poultry department at
the Oregon Experiment station.
"Many poultrymen report their
pullets getting up to about 60 per
cent production and then dropping
back, showing a neck molt or even
another complete molt." explained
Professor Lunn. "Bad management
may be at fault sometimes, but we
are convinced that the hot, dry
fall Is largely responsible."
Professor Lunn suggests Inducing
exercise with bright, clean litter,
then changing the ordinary dry
mash to a moist feed by mixing
with either skim or buttermilk.
This fairly moist mash is fed at the
rate of 2 pounds of dry mixture to
each 100 birds, continued for 10
days or two weeks.
Leach Memorial Hall
Soon to be Dedicated
Through the generosity of Mrs.
E. D. McMillan, the store building
at Lexington occupied for so many
years by the general merchandise
business of Leach Bros., and the
principal owner of which was her
former husband, Wm. E. Leach, has
been donated to Lexington lodge of
Oddfellows, of which he was also
prominent member. The mercantile
business was closed up some time
ago, and soon thereafter the work
of making over the building was
undertaken and it has been moving
along to the point of completion as
rapidly as possible. When the work
is done, the Lexington lodge will
have a splendid home, containing
ample space for the lodge room
ante rooms and robing rooms, kit
chen and dining hall, besides a club
room and large annex to be used as
a place for parties and public gath
Just as soon as the work of re
modeling the building is completed.
the building will be accepted by the
lodge with proper dedication ser
vices. The plans for this service are
now being worked out and we un
derstand that the name adopted is
Leach Memorial Halt, to be dedicat
ed to the memory of William E.
("Billy") Leach. The date of this
service will be announced through
these columns soon.

By ELVA PERRY
You say that our young folks are
bound for the devil;
In fact they are jazzing to hell;
Well, maybe so, Mister, but say, on
I don't like that phrase very well.
The poor little kiddies, why razz
them so roughly;
Why tell htem they're wicked and
dumb? . -
For aren't they our children the
pride of the nation
The hope of the race that's to
Perhaps they are wilful and some
of them waywradj
But surely the Father above
Is waiting to deal out not stern
But mercy and infinite love.
If I thought our young folks were
bound for the devil
And riding straight on to a fall,
I'd say we had better just stack up
our fire arms
And call it a day for us all.
