Fans Provided Plenty of
Thrills by Batting
Sprees of Nines.
TEN RUNS IN EIGHTH
Good Baseball Interspersed With
Poorer Brand Sufficient to
Indicate Bright Future,
The Wheatland league opener at
lone Sunday in -which the Egg City
lads won the nod over Heppner by
a 23-7 count is just another story
of one of those early season sky
rocket affairs. With the tally-sheet
showing 13-7 when Ione's part of
the eighth rolled round the north-
end boys didn't do anything but
take the heart entirely out of Hepp-
ner's gang by racing (and occa
sionally loping) across home plate
10 of the 14 batsmen to come up.
There was plenty of hitting and
probably more errors than the
scorekeepers could catch, wtih nei
ther side immune to the latter. But
there were thrills for the fans, too.
Who is there who doesn't like to
see two-baggers, three-baggers that
lack inches of being homers, pegs
from deep outfield to catch runners
at the plate, and double-plays? Good
samples of all these were displayed
Sunday, sandwiched in between
bungled-up grounders and muffed
fly-balls at times, that's true, but in
dishes of sufficient quantity to sat-
fy the fans that the boys aren't en
lone Takes Lead.
lone took the lead the first time
up when Rietmann's two-bagger
coupled with hits by R. Lundell and
G. Swanson scored the first two
named batsmen. Four more runs
were gleaned in the second inning
via singles by Rietmann, F. Lundell,
Ritchie, and Akers double sacker
combined with a dropped fly ball.
An error, hit by Engelman, follow
ed by Shipley's triple blow account
ed for two more in the third. R.
Lundell laced out a two-bagger in
the fourth to gain home on a passed
ball. Then in the seventh the
counters were augmented four more
times when N. Swanson got in the
road of a pitched ball, Engelman
walked, Shipley singled, Akers
made it first on an error and the
bases were cleared by Rietmann's
second two-base clout. The climax
was capped in the hectic eighth
when everything that possibly could
happened, including six hits, four
walks and several errors, to let 10
of the 14 lone men who came to
bat cross home platter.
Heppner Scores In Second.
Heppner's first marker came in
the second round when Hake's hit
scored Gentry who had taken the
marble for a two-base ride. Gentry
and Cason scored in the fourth, the
local catcher this time singling
while a fielding error let his team
mate on to be scored by Hake's high
sacrifice fly to the deep left pasture
Hits by Sprouls and Robertson ac
counted for the former's scoring in
the fifth. The other three tallies
came in the locals' part of the fate
ful eighth. Merrill was on base
on an error, Hake singled and the
two came home on Rod Thomson's
three-base clout, Thomson in turn
scoring on Sproul's hit.
That's how the scoring came
about But it wouldn't be right to
pass up a neat double play made
unassisted by "Crocky" Sprouls,
Heppner's guardian of the, keystone
sack, to retire the opponents in the
initial frame. Then "Bub Bleak
man comes in for special mention
by taking over the pitching job and
ending the eighth-canto fracas
Engelman of lone made a beautiful
peg from center field to catch a
Heppner runner at home plate,
while Hake and N. Swanson, left
fielders of their respective teams,
did some beautiful outer-garden

For Children's Parties
A large freezer full of plain home
made vanilla ice cream and good
plain sponge cake constitutes the
most generally acceptable refresh
ments that you could offer to the
little guests at your children's
Summer is a far better time than
winter to give a children's party if
you live in the country or suburbs,
because you can give it outdoors.
Few houses are large enough for a
dozen or so eager, exuberant chil
dren at a party.
It is far better to give children
too simple refreshments than too
elaborate. And better to have them
go home wishing that they had had
more than with appetite impaired
for a day or so.
For some reason or other lemon
ade is the usual summer beverage
and ice cream the usual summer re
freshment yet the two are not very
compatible. Of course, children be
come thirsty, so be ready with cold
water and glasses not ice water
nor your best tumblers.
In sending out invitations to a
children's party or giving telephon
ed invitations be explicit as to the
time for the party. Half past three
or half past five are good hours,
because that does not interfere with
nap time or with supper.
A really sensible idea is to have a
children's party including supper.
Then it may extend to six or half
past. To serve refreshments at five
is, of course, to rob a child of any
desire for his milk supper when he
goes home. If, therefore, you invite
the children for supper you can
serve milk and cereal or milk and
bread and butter to all the children
before they are given their ice
cream. It is really a wiser plan
than to serve something sweet and
then send them home with the edge
of their supper appetite quite gone.

Early Sale of Lambs
Gives Best Returns
All over Oregon lambs are reach
ing the proper size for marketing,
and the quicker they are hustled off
to the butcher after reaching a size
of 60 to 70 pounds the more money
they will make for the grower, says
H. A. Lindgren, extension animal
husbandman for the state college.
Mr. Lindgren has found in his
travels that many farmers are de
ceived by the size of their lambs and
fail to realize that they have reach
ed a marketable weight.
"It is not best to wait for a buyer
to come and take the whole flock
as some lambs are sure to go off
condition and be worth less money,
says Mr. Lindgren. "Neighbors can
cooperate in getting a truck load
or carload of these lambs into the
market as they fill out late in April
Good lambs at that season usually
bring a premium price.
