Geo. Peck Cites Farmers'
Fight; Mr. Notson Tells
of Trip to Memphis.
"What would a saving of four
cents on the freight rate of a bush
el of wheat mean to the business
men of Heppner?" This question
was asked at the meeting of the
Lions club Tuesday, following an
explanation of Geo. N. Peck, of
Lexington, of what the Eastern Or
egon Wheat league and other farm
organizations the trying to do to
effect more equitable freight rates
on wheat from Columbia basin
points to the searboard. Taking the
average wheat output of the county
at a million and a half bushels, a
saving of four cents a bushel on the
freight rate would mean sixty thou
sand more dollars annually In the
pockets of Morrow county farmers
with that much additional buying
Rates will be lowered this amount
from Heppner branch line points if
one proposition made to the Inter
state Commerce commission by Ar
thur M. Geary, attorney for the
wheatgrowers, is put in effect, said
C. W. Smith, county agent The
Lions were impressed with Mr.
Peck's proposition to the extent of
giving it endorsement and auth
orizing a committee to assist Mr.
Peck in carrying on the fight local
ly. Mr. Peck was appointed Morrow
county chairman to raise funds here
to help carry on the rate fight, at a
meeting of the Eastern Oregon
Wheat league in Pendleton. He re
ports some success, having to date
collected In the small sum of $130.
It is believed Morrow county should
be able to do better than this In
proportion to what other districts
raising a like amount of wheat are
Mr. Geary, attorney for the
wheatgrowers, has been working un
remittingly on the rate fight for
more than a year, It was brought
out, and it is believed some results
will shortly be forthcoming. Mr.
Peck stated a report from him Is
expected in January.
The rate fight was taken up by
farmers on provision of the Hoch
Smith resolution In congress short
ly after President Hoover's Incep
tion to office, authorizing a more
equitable adjustment of freight
rates on farm commodities. So far
It was stated, the Columbia basin
has received no benefit from the
resolution, though figures were
quoted showing that rates here are
out of line with other sections of
the United States as much as 10
cents a hundred pounds.
Another feature of the Lions
meeting was a report by S E. Not
son, district attorney, of his enjoy
able trip to the national meeting of
state attorney genreals at Memphis,
Tenn., and the convention of the
American Bar association. Every
minute of his trip was most enjoy
able, Mr. Notson declared, with one
exception. There was a disconcert
ing undercurrent running through
the bar convention which gave him
the feeling that leading legal minds
of the country were of the opinion
that self-government In the United
States is falling. Especially was a
prevailing sentiment noted that the
jury system is not measuring up.
Mr. Notson commended the south
ern hospitality, but was not so over
joyed by being mistaken for a mil
lionaire in Memphis. "Tney seemed
to think all lawyers are rich," he
said, "judging from the prices
charged on every hand."
The Heppner-Spray road commit
tee. headed by P. M. Gemmell, re.
ported the outcome of the Canyon
City junket last Friday.

Sanction Given Ritter and
Spray Roads on Visit
of Business Junket.
Impressed by the ease with which
the round trip may now be made
to Canyon City, the business men's
junket to the Grant seat Friday
returned more enhtusiastic than
ever over the need for completion
of the Heppner-Spray road. Leav
ing Heppner at 6 a. m. part of the
delegation arrived back in the city
shortly after 6 p. m., having spent
half the time at Canyon, the Heppner-Spray
route being used both go
ing and coming The distance to
Canyon this way Is 125 miles.
The delegation was more than
pleased with the friendly manner
in which it was received by the
Grant county court, and with the
court's action in regard to both the
Heppner-Spray and Heppner-Ritter
roads. At the time the Heppner
men left the court had before it for
adoption a resolution expressing its
desire that the Heppner-Spray road
be completed at an early date. In
addition an offer was made to have
a delegation at the December meet
ing of the state highway commis
sion and bureau of public roads to
assist in pushing the project along.
The Heppner-Ritter road was also
endorsed by the court, and it was
offered to have the Grant county
engineer work in conjunction with
the Morrow county engineer and
George McDuffee in making a pre
liminary survey of a road at the
Grant county end to connect up
with the completed portion of this
road to the Morrow county line. Mr.
McDuffee was chosen to work with
the engineers as it is said he is bet
ter acquainted with the topography
of the country than any other one
person, he having been reared as a
boy in the country about Ritter.
The junket was organized through
the Heppner Lions club as a part
of its program in furthering the
Heppner-Spray road. Those who
assisted in presenting the delega
tion's proposition to the court in
cluded C, L. Sweek, S. E. Notson,
Geo. Bleakman, L. Van Marter, P.
M. Gemmell, E. D Hallock and R.
L. Benge.
. . As the Heppner-Spray road does
not touch Grant county, the dele
gation had expected nothing more
than moral support from the Grant
court The route, it was shown, is
valuable to Grant in that its com
pletion will open up another trunk
highway joining up with the John
Day highway, that will aid greatly
In opening up this country and pro
moting its development.
The Grant county court made
plain its position which makes it ex-
tremelv difficult to give mucn nnan-
cial aid to any road at present It
was said Grant county has the
most miles of uncompleted roads of
any county in the state with the
least population. There is at least
ten places to put each available dol
lar of road money, it was asserted.
Under the conditions stated, the
Heppner men feel that the court
did its utmost, and that they were
met more than half way.
John Beavert spent the past week
in Irrlgon settling up the estate of
his brother who passed away re
cently. Mr. and Mrs. Finley Greebeil and
son of Pendleton visited with Mr.
Greebeil's folks over the week end.

The dance given Saturday eve
ning by the Grange wss enjoyed by
all though not a very large crowd
was present A number of those
who usually attend remained home
to guard the turkeys that were
dressed for market
Around a thousand turkeys were
shipped from this vicinity, most of
them going In the Monday pool at
Hermiston. However, the bulk of
the birds will go in a later pool
about December 10.
The road work which has been
In full swing for the past three
weeks was halted Monday to allow
for the delivering of the turkeys
at Hermiston.

Hermiston Defeated 21-6
In Armistice Day Game
Winding up the football season
with a string of victories excepting
one tie game, in which they become
entitled to the Upper Columbia Ath
letic association football pennant
for the second time In four years,
Heppner High school treated their
opponents from Hermiston to an
overwhelming 21-6 defeat at Rodeo
field Armistice Day.
Coach Poulson's proteges worked
with a precision and effectiveness
of power plays not shown before
this season, and the Gentry boys,
Harold and Roy, Robertson and
Hayes in the backfleld made yard
age through the line almost at will,
with the assistance of the wide
holes opened by the linesmen. Hepp
ner would have scored, almost cer
tainly, in every quarter had it not
been for a fumble In the second
when but a yard or so from the
goal and four downs to take the
ball across, it popped out of the
runner's arms and was regained by
R. Bills of Hermiston, who, with
the aid of perfect interference, rac
ed the entire length of the field for
the lone Hermiston score As it
was Heppner scored touchdowns in
the remaining three quarters.
The game was clean and hard
fought throughout before the larg
est crowd assembled at the local
grid this season. The Hermiston
team which held Heppner to a 0-0
tie in the first game of the season,
on Armistice Day was outplayed in
every department of the game.
All the Heppner boys were on
their toes and with the exception of
Harold Gentry, quarterback, whose
good generalship and spectacular
broken field running were outstand
ing features, there is little special
credit to give. The defense work
of J. Smith, Hermiston fullback,
was very noteworthy.
Scoring touchdowns for Heppner
were H. Gentry, Hayes 2. Points

Hermiston Folk Guests of
Heppner in Day of Fun
and Reverence.
Speaking before one of the largest
audiences to attend an Armistice
Day program in Heppner for sever
al years, David G. Glass of The
Dalles made a strong plea for uni
versal peace. He based his remarks
largely upon passages from the Bi
ble. Mr. Glass was a substitute
speaker for Dr. D. V Poling of
O. S. A. C, who was injured in an
automobile accident the last of the
week and was unable to be here.
The committee was fortunate, In
deed, to be able to secure Mr. Glass.
His address was inspirational, elo
quent and convincing and was
greatly appreciated.
The program, held at Elks' tem
ple at 10:30 Monday morning, start
ed with the singing of America by
the audience followed by invocation
by Milton W. Bower, pastor of the
Christian church. Under the direc
tion of Miss Beth Bleakman, teach
er, the girls of the primary depart
ment of the local grade school gave
a beautiful flag drill. C. W. Smith,
commander of Heppner Post No. 87,
American Legion, who presided,
gave a short talk covering the main
features of the Armistice holiday.
Songs by the high school glee club
and the boys' and girls' octettes,
under the leadership of Miss Kate
Francis Ede, were greatly enjoyed
The selections were appropriate to
the occasion and extremely well
Miss Aagodt Frlgaard, member of
the school faculty, sang two solos,
receiving well merited applause.
The Hermiston - Heppner, high
school football game was the main
feature of the afternoon, with the
parade of players and automobiles
to the field preceding. Legion
naires of the Hermiston and Hepp
ner posts, bedecked in mother hub
bards and other articles of feminine
attire, lent spice to this occasion by
a burlesque football performance.
This took heavily with the specta
tors judging from the rounds of
laughter evoked.
In the evening, at Legion hall,
members of the legion and auxiliary
were entertained at a feed which
was rather unusual in that the
main items on the menu were war
time army stand-bys beans and
macaroni. However, so efficient
were the mess sergeants and help
ers that these plebian viands were
much enjoyed. During the progress
of the meal songs were sung, stor
ies told and a general good time
The picture "The Donovan Affair"
at the Star theater, was enjoyed by
a capacity audience. Following the
show the annual dance was held at
the Elks' temple. A large crowd
attended and enjoyed themselves to
the music of the Heppner Black
Cats. After the dance a great many
returned to Legion hall to finish up
the leavin's of the "feed."

Program Tuesday is First
of Series to be Given
Free by School.
An extensive concert will be pre
sented by the boys' and girls' glee
clubs of Heppner High school next
Tuesday evening, in the gymnasium-
auditorium, the first of a series of
free entertainments to which the
Heppner public will be treated thru
the adoption of a new policy an
nounced by Jas. M. Burgess, super
intendent For many years there has been a
drag on the pocketbooks of patrons
of the school through having to pay
for all school entertainments. This
is a condition not altogether fair,
believes Superintendent Burgess,
and he is glad to be able to an
nounce that the school finances are
now in such shape as to permit a
number of these entertainments to
be given without charge.
Extensive preparation lor the en
tertainment Tuesday evening has
been made under the direction of
Kate Francis Ede, music supervisor,
and assurance is given that just as
much effort has been expended to
make the best possible showing as
would have been the case for a paid
entertainment Mr. Burgess extends

occasion. The program and person
