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 alike. 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 was. The cast for "Aarpn Slick of Pun kin Creek" was sustained by the following: Mrs. Rosa Berry, a wid ow, Helen Christenscn; Wilbur Mer Idew, a slicker, Edward Burchell; Sis Rlggs, just a tomboy, Edith Mil ler; Gladys Merldew, just like her name, Ruth Dlnges; Aaron Slick, not so green as he looked, Joe Thornburg; Clarence Green, a de tective In disguise, Elmer Palmer; The Girl In Red, a cabaret hostess, Neva Warner; hotel guests. Each character In this play was well pre sented and received hearty applause from the large crowd present to see it. It had been planned to hold the old-fashioned dance In the Oddfel lows building, also, but the crowd 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 (Continued on Page Eight) Glen Young and wife are up from the Willamette valley to get some of their personal property at the Alex Young farm on Eight Mile. Mr. Young has rented a farm about three miles out from Mollala, Ore gon, and contemplates going Into the chicken business there on a large scale . Mr. and Mrs. Young will return home In a few days. Some Progress Made on Heppner-Spray Road 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 with: "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, Morrow county receives this year $7,620.27. LOCAL NEWS ITEMS W. L. Norvell, located with the Foster and Klelser company at Walla Walla, was a visitor here on 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 before the people. On the Huston court Monday eve ning the championship croquet game was played between W. O. Dix and T. J. Humphreys, the latter be ing victorious. Tom is now "cock o' the walk," so to speak, and may be able to lay claim to being cham pion for the season, the nights be ing a little too chilly for the other players, so It is not likely that his claim to this honor will be contest ed before another season rolls around. We commiserate Mr. Dix and extend congratulations to the new belt owner. Guests at the home of Mr. and Mrs. O. T. Ferguson this week are Mr. and Mrs. Homer Hatfield, two sons and daughter, also their eldest son, Arlie Hatfield, wife and young son. They compose an automobile party coming from their home at Subletts, Kansas, for a visit with relatives on the Pacific slope. Mrs. Homer Hatfield is a sister of Mr. Ferguson. W. H. Tucker moved his family to town the first of the week from the mountains near the foot of Ar- buckle where they have resided dur ing the summer while he was get ting out wood. He states that there was nearly two Inches of snowfall In the timber belt, it having snowed some In the mountains while it was raining over the lower country. "THE FALL OF EVE," 100 per cent talkie, Star Theater, Sun.-Mon.- Tues. Lon Markham of Freewater and Percy Hughes of Umapine were former Morrow county residents in Heppner on Saturday, spending sev eral hours here on business. They report a woeful lack of rain in their part of the country this fall. Chas. Thomson left Tuesday morning for Portland to take in the Paclflo International Livestock show, going on to Eugene the end of the week for Dad's day at the state university. His son Ellis is a sophomore at U. of O. E. J. Evans, wheat raiser of the Lexington section, says the rain Sunday night hit just in time to protect the wheat from the quite heavy freeze the following night. He was transacting business In Heppner Tuesday. John Brosnan, who was in town Monday from his ranch above Lena, reports a very heavy downpour of rain over the Butter creek country on Saturday night. This will be of great benefit to range conditions. Barney Devlin has moved to Heppner from The Dalles where he has resided for some time. Born, at Heppner hospital Satur day, Oct. 27, to Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Gammell, a son. Mr. and Mrs. Cliff Merrill of Mon ument were Heppner visitors over Saturday. CARD OF THANKS. We want to thank our friends for their sympathy In the death of our beloved wife and mother. Also for the beautiful tloral offerings. Chas. W. Beneflel and family. Irrlgon, Oregon. 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 the chemicals. 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. Hayes, Heppner. "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 erings. 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.

When Jesus gave his disciples their final commission to preach He spoke of four complete things. Since we today are vitally interested in helping carry on to conclusion the campaign Jesus launched, it is fitting that we should pay attention to his marching orders. Especial ly is this true at this time when we are to have a special series of gospel sermons with a campaign of evan gelism. We will pay attention to this theme on Sunday evening. The Lord s Supper will be observ ed at the morning service and the theme will be, "Every Day Reli gion." Brother Jones will be here to be gin the meeting on Monday evening and we Invite everyone to attend from the first what we know will be feast of good things. MILTON W.

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 the level, 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 come? Perhaps they are wilful and some of them waywradj But surely the Father above Is waiting to deal out not stern condemnation, 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.
