the towns in the league last year, all
of whom were represented at the
1930 organization meeting at Ar
lington last night, Goldendale and
Hermiston-Umatilla have been invit
ed to join, having signified such de
sire. The split season idea was intro
duced by "Kewpie" Clow, Condon
representative, who believes that
this device, used to advantage in
the Pacific coast league, would help
tc stimulate Interest It would pre
vent a situation such as occurred
last year, when some of the teams
were thrown out of the running by
the time the season was half over,
and had little incentive to strength

weak teams could strengthen at
mid-season and have a chance for
The league directors voted to
start the season April 20. A sched

sent to the various towns as boon

the concensus of opinion that all

Heppner's baseball boys took their
first work-out Tuesday evening. A
promising bunch of youngsters, suf
fering from an over-supply of pent
up energy, were on hand, and rid
ded themselves of considerable of
this In a good warm-up. Ray Fer
guson, last year's manager, has tak

the high school squad are out for

A fighting, young, all-home team
should result, Ferguson believes.

ed at the Elks club rooms next
Monday night, all interested being
urged to attend.
MORROW TIMBER LASTING.
The lasting quality of Morrow
county timber is indicated by the
fact that many of the hand-split
shakes covering an old barn on the
Lawrence Redding ranch near
Blight Mile were in good condition
after being exposed to the weather
for more than 35 years. Mr. Red
ding tore the barn down this win
ter and built a tractor Bhed with
the shakes, which were turned over
on the new structure. The shakes
on the east slope of the old barn
roof were found in first class condi
tion and those on the south In the

Mrs. Elbert Cox assisting the hos
tess, Mrs. F. S. Parker. The follow

Plane Out of Gasoline
Makes Landing in City
Dudley Rankin former associate
with his famed brother "Tex," but
now operating the Rankin Broth
ers Aviation school with his bro
ther Dick in Portland, and R. C.
Montgomery, student pilot made a
forced landing near the local cem
etery when their supply of gasoline
ran short Monday evening.
Mr. Montgomery had been pilot
ing the plane, travelling that day
from Portland to Walla Walla,
Wash., thence to Lexington and
Heppner. The trip was made to
give the student landing practice.
They had intended landing here
and were also forced to, because of
the fuel shortage.
Because of the high landing speed
of the plane it was deemed inad
visable to land on the local airport
because of its slope and the danger
of the plane turning over after land
ing. After it was learned that the
Garnet Barratt alfalfa field was firm
enough for a safe landing the plane
was flown there and left for the
night. The fliers continued on to
Portland Tuesday morning. The
ship was a two-place Great Lakes
Trainer, and of the same model as
used by Tex Rankin in establishing
a world's record in making 19 per
fect outside loops.

ROAD WORK IS TOPIC
Heppner Service Club Will Invite
Man From Game Protective
Association to Speak.
C. L. Sweek, on hand for the first
time since the Lions club's historic
charter night, at its meeting Mon
day noon, thanked the members and
committees in particular for their
fine work and cooperation in mak
ing the occasion a success. Presi
dent Sweek endorsed the idea of
every Lion joining the commercial
club and making the body a live
organization. As a committee on
details of organization he appointed
S. E. Notson, Paul M. Gemmell and
W. W. Smead. This committee was
authorized by vote of the club at
its last meeting.
Game Report Made.
Report was made by the commit
tee appointed to see what could be
done toward obtaining more fish
and birds for Morrow county. Chi
nese pheasants numbering 88 were
released by Barney Tillotson, game
warden last week. Word from Mr.
Tillotson is also to the effect that
a truck-load of seed fish will be put
in Willow creek this week. In con
nection with this discussion, it was
cited that crows and magpies are a
great detriment to game birds, and
on suggestion that a drive for kill
ing these pests be made President
Sweek appointed B. R. Patterson,
D. A. Wilson and Charles H. Lat
ourell as a committee to organize
the details of such a drive.
Further discussion was had of
opening up the mouth of Willow
creek, and an attempt will be made
in the near future to raise funds for
this purpose. It is estimated the
work can be done for $250. The fish
and game committee was authoriz
ed to contact the state game and
fish commissions to obtain informa
tion regarding procedure.
To Invite Game Man.
A communication was read by
Russell Pratt, secretary of the
Heppner Rod and Gun club, in
which the Oregon State Game Pro
tective association offered to send a
representative to Heppner to ex
plain the work of the association.
On motion it was voted to ask that
such a representative be invited to
address the Lions club meeting next
Monday, and all members of the
Heppner Rod and Gun club who are
not Lions be invited to participate
in the meeting.
George Bleakman reported a re
cent visit of Mr. Scott, state market
road engineer, who stressed the im
portance of the Heppner-Spray road
and Gilliam county market road as
parts of the state system. More
forest road money is available to
Oregon as a result of recent action
by congress and Mr. Bleakman be
lieves it would be a good idea for
Morrow county to put in its bid this
year to keep from being overlooked.
The money appropriated for 1930
for the Heppner-Spray road is be
ing expended on grading between
Porter creek at the point which
the grading left off before, and ex
tending south as far as the money
will go. Mr. Scott said It is estima
ted that one mile of this construc
tion, some of the most difficult con
struction on the road, will cost $20,
000. Cup on Display.
Displayed at the meeting was the
cup won by Earl D. Hallock at a re
cent meeting of the Oregon State
Bankers association, for guessing
nearest to the correct weight on
livestock. The contest was a popu
lar feature at the bankers' meeting,
and the cup possessed by Mr. Hal
lock identifies him as an expert
Properly engraved the little loving
cup is a beautiful piece of work.
Paul Marble also recognized Mr.
Hallock's feat by presenting him
with a richly ornamented diploma
of large proportions, which he pur
ported to have been authorized to
present on behalf of the state bank
S. E. Notson reported attending
the Oregon State chamber of com
merce meeting In Portland last
