Struck For City
Estimated Flow 700,000 Gallons a Day; Rejoicing
Citizens Rush to Scene; No Sign of Decrease
In Volume; Good Supply Probable.
Water, that necessity of necessities, which has de
termined the locations oflarge cities, and the fates of
nations, had all Heppner in almost frenzied activity
Tuesday afternoon and all day Wednesday, for arte
sian water wTas struck at a depth of 210 feet by the
drillers employed by A. A. Durand of Walla Walla,
Wash., who has the contract with the city of Heppner
for the drilling of a well to provide for the city's water
The first indication of the artesian flow was noted
at about noon Tuesday, when a small amount bubbled
out of the drill hole. The flow gradually increased.
Drilling operations were ceased at about 4 o'clock. By
5 o'clock the water was bubbling out of the hole at a
rapid rate, estimated by drillers at nearly 200 gallons
During Tuesday and Wednesday
the road to the forks of Willow
creek, approximately 12 miles south
east of Heppner, became a busy
street, for many residents of the
city became anxious to see the flow
of artesian water.
City Folk Rejoices
The well was the talk of the town
and even matters of business were
nearly at a standstill, with so much
interest in visiting the well and
talking it over.
City officials measured the flow of
the water Wednesday and found the
rate of flow varied some, but with a
tendency to increase as time went
on. A daily flow of 700,000 gallons
is considered a conservative esti
mate of the amount of water actu
W. E. Pruyn, city water master,
in a statement yesterday said, "Peo
ple of Heppner should not become
too elated over the strike, for the
city main from the intake is only
capable of handling a certain vol
ume of water, regardless of how
much the flow is at the well." He
asserted, however, that water from
the well would be put into the mains
at the earliest possible moment.
Samples of the water have. been
taken and sent to the state board
of health by Dr. A. D. McMurdo,
city health olllcer, for analysis for
purity and chemical content. Local
tests of the water show that it is
t ost is Nominal.
Continuance of the flow is expect
ed to be a boon to the city for the
dryness of the past few seasons
has indicated that the available wa
ter has been on the decline. With
much drouth, prior water rights of
residents along Willow creek would
be sullicicnt to complete shut off
the city's use of the creek water,
should they press their rights.
A. A. Durand was expected to ar
rive today to go Into consultation
with the city council relative to fur
ther plans for the city's water sup
ply. The water was struck at a
shallower depth than was expected,
bringing with it a smaller expendi
ture. Based on the contract price of
$10 a foot for the first 300 feet, the
well has cost $2100 to date.
A number of Heppner residents
have talked of staging a celebra
tion of the event at the well some
time next week, but it is not defin
itely known if any such celebration
will be held. It is possible that the
matter will be taken up by the
Lions club at its Monday meeting.

Masonic Orders Host
To State Grand Master
The visit of Milton L. Myers,
master of the grand lodge of Ore
gon, A. F. & A. M., to Heppner lodge
No. 69 was the occasion for a very
pleasant gathering .at Masonic tem
ple on Wednesday evening. Both
members of the Blue lodge and the
Order of Eastern Star, with wives
and husbands of the members of
the respective orders, were present,
and at the banquet served at 6:30
the capacity of the dining hall was
taxed as the guests were served at
both first and second tables. This
feature of the entertainment was
under the direction of the officers of
Ruth chapter No. 32, O. E. S., and
the menu was prepared by the lad
ies of the order. It was of such ex
cellence as to bring forth words of
praise from the visitors. Other fea
tures of entertainment were a vocal
number by Miss Kate Francis Ede,
and a duet by Mesdames Piercy and
Ferguson, with Mrs. W. R. Poulson
at the piano.
At the session of Heppner lodge
immediately following the banquet,
the grand master was officially re

ing sketches of a recent visit to
Washington, D. C, and other points
east and south.
Make Heppner Cleaner
Cooperation of the citizens of
Heppner and Jupe Pluvius makes
Heppner a cleaner city than it was
a week ago. Rubbish, cans, and
other accumulations of the winter,
sacked, barrelled and placed on
curbs, were hauled to the dump
free of charge by city-hired trucks
Monday, which was Heppner s an
nual clean-up day, by proclamation
of Mayor W. G. McCarty.
Jupe Pluvius kicked over his
sprinkling can late Monday after
noon with -a downpour that laid all
the dust in the city, thus doing his
part In Heppner's annual clean-up.
As a result of the rain, lawns, flow
er beds, gardens, and fields are
brighter than before.
EASTEK CANTATA PLEASES.
An audience that filled the Epis
copal church to capacity gathered
on Sunday evening to listen to the
singing of the Easter cantata,
"Bright Easter Morn," presented by
the combined choirs of the city un
der the direction of Miss Aagodt
Frigaard. The story of the passion
and the resurrection of the Saviour
Is beautifully depicted in both words
and music, and the singers brought
credit to themselves and their lead
er in the excellence of its rendition.
Mrs. C. L. Sweek presided ably at
the organ, and the production was
well received by the large audience
The date for the baccalaureate
services Is set by W. R. Poulson,
superintendent of Heppner schools

Council and Lions Club.
"When the crow and magpie ex
termination campaign starts next
Sunday, everyone in the county is
asked to cooperate whether or not
they join in with the Lions club
contest," was the assertion of B. R.
Patterson, chairman of the commit
tee in charge, at the Lions lunch
eon Monday. "The main idea is to
rid the county of these pests which
do more than anything else to hin
der the propagation of game birds."
The Lions club contest starts Sun
day to include the following week
and succeeding Sunday. In the con
test sides will be chosen next Sat
urday from those signing up, to vie
for a dinner at which the losers will
entertain the winners. Chas. W.
Smith and C. L. Sweek will be the
team captains. Anyone wishing to
sign may do so by leaving his name
at one of the following designated
places of business in Heppner: Peo
ples Hardware company, Gilliam &
Bisbee, Patterson & Son.
Killing Methods Optional.
There are no restrictions as to the
method of killing the pests, but to
gain credit for birds killed they
must be decapitated and the heads
turned in at one of the aforemen
tioned business houses. The Hepp
ner Rod and Gun club is cooperat
ing in the campaign of extermina
tion by offering for sale 10 cases of
shotgun shells which were bought
at a low price before the price raise
about the first of "the year. These
shells may be obtained at Latourell
Auto company for 85 cents a box
to be used only for the purpose of
killing predatory birds. In the con
test the heads of hawks will count
as well as those of crows and mag
pies. Delegates were elected to repre
sent the club at the state Lions con
vention at Bend, June 6 and 7, on
the basis of one delegate for each
ten members or major portion of
ten. Elected delegates are C. L.
Sweek, Paul Gemmell, D. A. Wilson,
E. D. Hallock, C. W. Smith. Alter
nates elected are W. W. Smead.
Jasper Crawford, Russell Pratt, F.
B. Nickerson and Paul Marble.
Signs, Numbers Coming.
Heppner's streets and houses will
soon be indexed, according to Paul
Marble, reporting for the city ad
ministration committee which is
working in conjunction with the
streets and public property commit
tee of the city council in determin
ing the extent to which and the
manner the work will be carried
out. With the Lions taking charge
of the work of placing the signs
and numbers, the cost to the city
should not exceed $75, according to
the committee's estimate.
Further discussion was had of the
possibility of obtaining more forest
road money this year for the Hepp-ner-Spray
road in view of an addi
tional appropriation of congress of
which Oregon will get a share. G. A.
Bleakman, county commissioner,
offered to write the office of the
Bureau of Public Roads at Portland
to find out the exact amount of
funds from which this road might
expect aid. At the present time a
crew of surveyors is on the ground
making some line changes and it is
expected bids for grading work, for
which $75,000 has so far been allot
ted this year, will be asked for in
a short time.

School Head Refutes
Statement of Writer
Exception to a statement made
by the Boardman correspondent in
last week's issue of the Gazette
Times is taken by Mrs. Lucy Rod
gers, county school superintendent,
who is continually striving to do the
utmost in the interest of all schools
of the county. The statement in
question is, "Boardman rarely sees
any of the county officials with the
exception of the always obliging
county agent, except around cam
paign time, but has found two splen
did workers In Dr. Gray and county
nurse, Miss Stallard. . ."
That Mrs. Rodgers has not slight
ed the Boardman school is indicated
by the fact that she has paid four
official visits there this year, where
but one is required by law. Inci
dentally, no school of the county
has received more official visits this
year. Considering that Boardman
is at a far corner of the county,
and that the appropriation she re
ceives for mileage is limited, Mrs.
Rodgers cannot see how the Board
man community can feel that it has

these they are being kept out of
school. Parents are warned not to
send their children to school If
there is any question about their
illnesses. If the illness should prove
to be either measles or whooping
cough, a number of children are
exposed and the disease spread.
It is reported that some parents
have deliberately taken their chil

they were suffering the effects of
one of the diseases. Occurrences of
this kind are a menace to whole
communities, and it is urged that

home during such times. Other

reported to have been roaming the
streets before quarantine was lifted
thus exposing other children.
