WOOL MART DATA
GIVEN TO GROWER
Cooperative Delegate Tells
Features Embodied in Plan
Of Federal Farm Board.
Methods of marketing of wool
through cooperatives sponsored by
the Federal Farm board, and the
advantages of marketing through
an organization such as the Pacific
Cooperative Wool growers, which
has been in successful operation as
a cooperative for 10 years, were
pointed out by Edgar L. Ludwick,
assistant manager of the latter or
ganization, which has its headquar
ters and warehouses in Portland, at
a meeting attended by more than
30 growers and men interested in
the wool industry, at the American
Legion hall in Heppner Wednesday
Mr. Ludwick stated that the na
tional wool marketing plan was
practically identical with that dev
eloped by his association through
ten years of operation in the Paci
fic northwest. He declared that the
costs to market through the Pacific
cooperative to large growers would
be no higher than the best possible
late that could be made through a
local organization. The costs are
handled on a graduated scale based
on the size of clip and service ren
dered. Should a majority of the
larger growers market through the
use of a large regional, the sheep
industry would be served to much
All wool of the same quality and
grade will be pooled, irrespective
of what local or regional that wool
may reach the national organiza-,
tion through. Pre-shearing advanc
es of a dollar per head are being
made. The growers are guaranteed
an advance of 90 per cent of the
value of the wool upon delivery.
Should the pooled price be less than
the advance given, the grower will
not suffer for there will be no kick
back. The loss will be covered by
a stabilization corporation.
The National Wool Marketing
corporation has signed 60 million
pounds of wool with prospects that
the total amount for the year will
reach 100 million. Leonard Funk
of the Heppner Trading company
has been appointed local represent
ative of the Pacific Cooperative
Wool growers, announcement being
made of the appointment at the
Motion Picture Shows
Effect Liquor Traffic
"The Transgressor," a motion pic
ture which shows the effect of li
quor traffic will be shown Saturday
evening at 7:30 o'clock at the Meth
odist church as part of a new tem
perance educational program being
conducted throughout the nation.
If will be shown under the auspices
of the Anti-Saloon league of Oregon.
This picture concerning prohibition
is declared by Rev. R. E. Close,
league superintendent, to be one of
the latest and most Interesting films
of its kind ever produced.
The film is the life story of two
men whose experiences are strange
ly interwoven with their chummy
boyhood days. The deadly effects
of the legalized liquor traffic are
clearly depicted. The saloon, pov
erty, riches, comedy, tragedy, pro
hibition, bootleggers, crooked offi
cials, traitors and true American
citizens all combine to hold the at
tention as one follows the life stoy
of these two men. Rev. Mr. Close
will deliver an address in connec
tion with the showing of the pic
ture. No admission will be charged
but an offering will be taken. An
Invitation is extended all to see the
picture. Children are welcomed
but must be accompanied by and
sit with their parents.

0. F. Tate Speaker; Public
Nurse Work Explained
By Miss Stallard.
NOTSON IS DELEGATE
Membership In State Chamber of
Commerce Sponsored by Lions
For Commercial Club.
An inspirational address by O. F.
Tate of Portland, secretary of the
Oregon Retail Merchants associa
tion, on "Community Building," fea
tured the Monday luncheon of the
Heppner Lions club. Miss Edith J.
Stallard, county nurse made a short
talk. The club voted to take out a
membership in the Oregon State
chamber of commerce in the name
of the Heppner Commercial club,
and to send S. E. Notson to Port
land Thursday to attend a meeting
of the state chamber.
Community Building Explained.
"Every community has its indiv
idual problems to face, and these
must be determined in order to put
across a successful campaign of
community building," declared Mr.
Tate in his address. One of the
main reasons for people going to
outside points is to fulfill an innate
craving present in everyone for re
creation. This problem can be par
tially solved by the providing of
more recreational facilities at home.
Highways can lead into, as well
as out of a town, and It depends on
the people of each particular com
munity whether automobiles will
stop or pass on through. Better and
more convenient service in the
stores, more attractive displays, and
advertising were stressed by Mr.
Tate as the most effective means of
building the community. Any cam
paign, he declared, to be effective
must be constructive and not de
structive. Everyone should strive to see that
larger picture in which everything
that, helps the community, help
the state, and everything that helps
the state, helps the country as a
whole, and vice versa.: Community
building is a common undertaking
in which everyone in the commun
ity must have a part, and for which
everyone must stand his share of
the expense. Mr. Tate met with
the "Trade at Home" committee of
the Lions club following the lunch
eon, to assist in working out a
Health Work Outlined.
Miss Stallard thanked the Lions
club for its part in establishing
public health nursing in the county,
at the same time asking continued
cooperation to the end that the ser
vice may be made of the utmost
worth, looking to its permanent es
tablishment She reviewed the four
fold duties of a public health nurse:
inspection of school children, home
instruction in the care of sick pa
tients, assistance in getting hospit
alization for tubercular cases, and
assistance in putting across "better
health" programs. She declared the
work in this county to have been
founded on a firm foundation, and
forsees its rapid progress. So far.
nearly all Miss Stallard's time has
been given over to inspection of
school children in order to establish
a complete record at the start.
Mr. Notson reported a meeting of
the state chamber of commerce to
be held in Portland today. In a dis
cussion as to Heppner's taking out
a membership in the state organi
zation, it was brought out that the
Lions club was not entitled to mem
bership, and the suggestion made
that a "paper" commercial club be
formed for the purpose. Mr. Tate
declared that such a paper organ
ization should not be considered as
there is need for a live commercial
club in Heppner, and that It would
be a worthy project for the Lions
club to sponsor the same.
Case Plans Building
Mortuary, Cost $8000
A modern mortuary, to be two
stories in height will be built at an
estimate cost of $8000 to $10,000 for
M. L. Case above the foundation on
his property opposite the Church of
Christ. The structure will be of
colonial type, with the exterior fin
ish in stucco.
The main floor of the mortuary
will be devoted to a chapel, music
family, slumber and preparation
rooms. The second tloor will be
used or living quarters. Use of the
full basement will he for a sample
room and heating plant.
Detailed plans of the proposed
structure have not yet been drawn
Mr. and Mrs. Case returned to
Heppner Friday night after visiting
mortuaries in Salem, Albany, Mon
mouth and other Willamette valley
cities, which they inspected to learn
the most desirable features to in
corporate in the construction of
their building. Installation of an

HEALTH SAID GOOD
School Also in Excellent State
Scholastically, Reports County
Mrs. Lucy Rodgers, county school
superintendent, and Miss Edith
Stallard, county nurse, visited the
Boardman school from Thursday
afternoon to Saturday morning in
connection with their official duties,
finding the children to be in the best
state of health of any school yet
visited in the county and the pupils
to be doing satisfactory scholastic
Miss Stallard believes that the
health conditions there have been a
result of the great interest shown
by the teachers, pupils and parents,
during the last several years. A
program of teaching health and
health habits has been given in the
school. A complete warm lunch is
served each noon at a cost of 10
cents to the pupil, by the domestic
science Instructor assisted by two
high school girls, who are paid for
their work. This venture has proved
successful from both a health and
financial standpoint. In the pri
mary grades, milk is served each af
ternoon to the pupils. Miss Stallard
approves highly this practice, but
recommended that it would be more
beneficial if served in the morning.
Teachers of the school have out-
ined and followed their own course
of study on character building. The
Parent Teachers association has al
so taken much interest in this
study, reading and discussing one
chapter from a book by an author-
ty on the subject, at each meeting.
A merit and demerit system of
recording the conduct or deport
ment standing of each pupil is be
lieved to be bringing better schol
astic attainments. A large chart
on the wall shows each pupil's
standing, merits and demerits be
ing added depending on the pupil's
conduct. That the system is having
a good effect is shown by the fact
that one of the poorest pupils last
year, taking need or tne oispiay oi
his standing before the entire shool,
has become more determined this
year and is now listed as one of the
