Assistant State School
Superintendency Goes
v to Local Man.
James M. Burgess today made
public announcement of his resig
nation as superintendent of the
Heppner schools to accept the po
sition of assistant state school su
perintendent, his resignation to be
effective as soon as the board of di
rectors makes a choice of his suc
cessor from a number of prospects
now under consideration.
The assistant state superinten
dent's office was recently left vacant
by the resignation of W. M. Smith,
Incumbent for the last fifteen years.
The appointment of Mr. Burgess
came to him from a clear sky when
he was called to Salem two weeks
ago at State Superintendent How
ard's request, along with a number
of other high school heads of the
state, supposedly to discuss high
school problems and assist in rais
ing high school standards. Mr.
Burgess left for Salem Tuesday eve
ning on business in connection with
his new duties, expecting to return
to Heppner this evening.
Since coming to Heppner five
years ago, Mr. Burgess has gained
at least state-wide attention through
educational circles by being prom
inently active in the Oregon State
Teachers' association. Last year
he conducted a state-wide survey
of arithmetic in the grade schools,
having for its purpose the recom
mendation of a new course of study,
which brought him favorable recog
nition. His superintendency of the local
schools has been marked by distinc
tive accomplishment. He has not
only maintained the high standards
left by his predecessor, E. H. Hed-
rick, now superintendent of the
Medford schools, but has succeeded
in raising these until the Heppner
school system ranks with the best
in th state. Mr. Burgess was large
ly responsible for the building of
the auditorium - gymnasium by
means of which compliance witn
state requirements in physical edu-
cation was made possible
Last summer Mr. Burgess carried
on work at Stanford university
looking to the acquiring of the de
gree of doctor of education. He ob
tained his master's degree from that
Institution just before coming to
Heppner. He Is also a graduate of
the University of Oregon.
Aside from his school duties Mr.
Burgess has found time to take an
active part .In community enter
prises. He was elected president of
the Heppner Lions club at Its in
ception a few weeks ago, and his
efforts may e given a large part
of the credit for the rapid growth
and accomplishments of this organ
ization. He also has been promin
ently connected with the activities
of Heppner Post, American Legion,
during his residence here.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Burgess ex
press real regret on having to leave
Heppner, which Mr. Burgess de
clares to be one of the very best
communities in which his lot has
ever been cast They have made a
host of friends who will be sorry,
also, that they must leave, but who
will extend congratulations on the
mark of achievement implied by
Mr. Burgess' appointment to the
new position.
"My intention is not to leave
Heppner until the position of super
intendent is filled entirely satisfac
torily to the board of directors," Mr.
Burgess declared, "and it shall be
my endeavor to assist in doing this."
Mrs. F. L. Whitemarsh
Dies Following Illness
Death came to Mrs. Myrtle Esther
Whitemarsh, wife of F. L. White-
marsh, at Heppner hospital at 11:30
Saturday night. For the past three
years Mrs. Whitemarsh had suffer
ed with diabetes and this disease
was the cause of death, she having
taken seriously 111 but a few days
before going to the hospital,
Mrs. Whitemarsh was aged 31
years, and was the daughter of
Henry. O. Branstetter of Echo. She
was a graduate pharmacist from u.
A. C. with the class of 1917. With
her husband she came to Heppner
last May when Mr, Whitemarsh en
tered the employ of Dennis McNa-
mee. Besides her husband and fa
ther, Bhe is survived by one brother,
Brvan Branstetter of Pendleton,
The funeral was held at Pendleton
on Tuesday from Bomboy's Funeral
home and burial was in the family

Proposed Blue Mountain
Half Completed, Figures Indicate
With the Hetfpner-Spray road, or
what may be known as the Blue
Mountain Cut-Off, nearly half com
pleted, local interests are expectant
that the project will receive support
at the joint-meeting of the state
highway commission and Bureau of
Public Roads In Portland, Decem
ber 13. This project, while not on
the state map and so far has not
received financial assistance from
the state, is an important link in
the state highway system, it has
been brought out in discussions be
fore the Heppner Lions club which
is endeavoring to help bring about
the early completion of the road.
The Heppner-Spray road connects
the Oregon-Washington highway at
Heppner with the John Day high
way at Spray, forming a portion of
a direct route from the Ochoco
highway at Mitchell to the Oregon
Trail and Columbia River highways
at Pendleton, thus making a cut-off
route from roads to the north and
east, to central Oregon and Califor
nia roads leading to points south
clear into Mexico.
That the outside world might be
given a clearer conception of what
is included in the project, R. L.
Bengo, county judge, at the Lions
meeting Monday proposed changing
its name to the Blue Mountain Cut-
Off and extending Its scope to in
clude the unfinished gap between
Mitchell on the Ochoco highway
and Service creek on the John Day.
This suggestion met with favor.
Monday the club discussed the or
ganization of delegations to meet
with the highway commission and
Bureau of Public Roads at their
December meeting, to help advertise
the project through parts of the ter
ritory which will be benefitted by its
completion. Those in attendance at
the luncheon meeting were favored
with two solos by Mies Aagodt Fri
gaard, teacher in the local schools,
Mrs. W. R. Poulson piano accom
panist Miss Frigaard was heartily

pleted and the numerous booths and
side shows are under construction.
The doors open at 7 o'clock sharp.
All tickets for the carnival will be
sold at the booth at the main en
trance. The main show begins at

Paul M. Gemmell, chairman of the
Heppner-Spray m Road committee,
opened the discussion with the pre
sentation of construction figures
taken from a map received this
week from the state highway engi
neer by Geo. Bleakman, county
commissioner and one of the fath
ers of the road. These figures show
that a total of $364,787.97 has been
spent on the Heppner-Spray pro
ject to date, and an estimate given
to complete of $397,325.00. Of the
money spent so far Morrow county
has put up $240,203.77 and the Bu
reau of Public Roads, tlZ4,54.20.
To match county funds within the
county the bureau has expended
only $41,584.20. Not a cent of state
money has been expended on the
"Morrow county has expended
more money on this road than has
been expended by any one county In
the state on a forest road in propor
tion to the amount of forest road
money received, with the exception
of Multnomah county," Is an asser
tion made at the meeting, based on
available data. Multnomah county
comes first with its construction of
the Mount Hood Loop highway thru
the forest
The road is important to all cen
tral Oregon points, as well as points
touched immediately by It, and will
also affect points to the south on
the Pacific, Redwood and Roosevelt
highways, declared one member of
the club. It will provide an addi
tional artery of travel leading to
these districts, and will thus stim

As the road now stands It is grad

Heppner to Rhea creek. The next
four miles to Hardman is unim
proved with the exception of what
is known as Hardman hill, which
was graded to standard grade and
partly surfaced by the county. The
next six miles down Rock creek is
unimproved except for a short
stretch of grade put in by the coun
ty. Then comes 11.5 miles of fine
macadamized road through the for

went to Portland the first of the

Just now interest is centering in
the organization of cooperative
marketing associations to take ad
vantage of the money available
from the farm board, and Mr. Smith
hopes that a definite line of action
will come from the meeting in Port
land. A larger delegation from this
county had been arranged for but
due to unavoidable circumstances
the number was cut down.

recently went to Portland, have de

Local Turkey Market
Not Bad, County Agent
Those who received 32 cents a
pound for No. 1 toms, and 30 cents
for hens at the recent Oregon-Idaho
pool at Hermiston, got a fair price,
believes C. W. Smith, county agent
in comparing prices quoted in a
reprint of turkey-grams sent out by
L. R. Breithaupt, extension econo
mist of Oregon State college. On
the 19th the New York market was
reported as inactive with western
young toms quoted at 36 to 37 cents,
northwestern toms a cent higher,
and Texas 2 cents lower. Due to
necessary refrigeration, transporta
tion on dressed turkeys comes high,
and Mr. Smith believes the differen
tial might reach 8 cents a pound.
The turkey-grams from which the
reprint was taken are sent daily by
the extension service to the Associa
ted Press and the Roseburg News
Review. A factor which worked in
favor of the grower this year, Mr.
Smith says, was that at the Hermis
ton pool birds were not graded
down as much as last year, and
practically all plump young toms of
good color went at No. 1.

posed Blue Mountain Cut-Oft , about

Dr. Johnston Expects
to Leave Soon for East
Dr. A. H. Johnston makes an
nouncement this week that he is
planning to leave Heppner, and Is
now negotiating with Dr. A. B.
Gray of San Diego, Cal., to take
over his property and practice here.
He expects that the arrangements
will all be completed thiB week and
in about two weeks he and Mrs.
Johnston will depart for the east
where Dr. Johnston is planning to
spend at least six months In post
graduate work. He will go first to
Mayo's at Rochester, Minn., spend
ing three months there in surgery,
and later to Chicago for work In
Rush medical college.
Dr. Johnston has been at Heppner
for the past six years, during which
time he has built up a fine practice,
and he and Mrs. Johnston have
been prominent in social and frater
nal circles. He feels that a pnys
ician should attend these medical
institutions for a period of at least
six months or a year every ten
years in order to keep up with the
progress of the profession, and it Is
for this reason he is leaving Hepp
ner at this time, much as he and
Mrs. Johnston regret to part with
the good people of this community
and the numerous friendships form
ed while here
W. T. Gerard and family spent a
short time in the city Friday from
the farm north of Lexington. While
seeding has been completed out that
way by most of the farmers, the
grain has not made progress be
cause of the lack of moisture ana
they are suffering from the prevail
ing dry and cold weather conditions.
Mr, Gerard is somewhat fearful of
the outcome, it being problematical
what the effect will be of the pres
ent near zero temperature.
Dr. H. T. Allison of Portland, and
his brother, A. C. AlliBon of Yakima,

Portland by last night's train.
Leo Gorger was in town from the
ranch of Gorger Bros, on Monday.
He Btates that they have finished
with about half of their seeding, ex
pecting to do the balance in the
spring. Conditions are not right
and the sown grain is making slow
Droeress. Just now there is too
much cold weather.
John Parker returned home Tues
day evening from Eugene where he

A. A. Durand of Walla
Waila Has Low Bid;
Work Immediate.
A. A. Durand of Walla Walla was
awarded the contract for drilling a
well at the forks of Willow creek
for the city of Heppner, at the ad
vertised meeting of the city council
Monday evening Mr. Durand, who
has a large number of well drilling
outfits, reports that one of these is
available which he will move onto
the ground immeditaely.
Mr. Durand s bid was considered
by the council to be the best of a
number offered. His contract calls
for a price of $10 per foot for the
first 300 feet, with $1 a foot addi
tional on each hundred feet there
after, or $11 a foot between 300 and
400 feet $12 between 400 and 500,
and so on to whatever depth may
be required.
The council had previously re
ceived high recommendations of
Mr. Durand's work from Baker, La
Grande, Dayton, Wash., and other
towns for which he has done work.
He is a driller of long experience
and successful In the majority of
his undertakings, according to these
recommendations, and members 01
the council feel they have made a
good contract
The well will be drilled on land
obtained recently from Frank Wil
kinson, Just at the forks of Willow
creek. This site had previously
been picked by Mr. Durand and oth
er drillers who were consulted when
the cuoncil was deliberating on the
best plan to obtain more and bet
ter water last fall.
It is expected drilling operations
will be started not later than the
first of the coming month. The
council is hopeful that a sufficient
flow will be obtained without hav
ing to go too deep, and believes it
certain that water when obtained
will be of good quality.
