Nomination of officers for the en
suing year will be the order of busi
ness of the Heppner Lions club at
its weekly luncheon Monday, May
20, this date being set by action of
the club at its meeting Monday.
By-laws call for ten day's notice
preceding elections.
Lions' road signs are now in place
at the city limits on the east and
west approaches of the Oregon
Washington highway, it was an
nounced by Earl D. Hallock and
Earl W. Gordon, committee having
this work in charge. The commit
tee was given a vote of thanks for
its work. The signs, made by George
Stephens of Arlington, are replicas
of Lions' standard road signs, ex
tending the club's welcome to vis
itors. They are quite attractive.
A communication from the Bend
Lions was read, extending an invita
tion to the local club to present a
skit at the state Lions convention,
meeting in Bend June 6.
Entertainment of the winning
team by the losers in the crow
magpie contest was a subject for
discussion, but the losing side was
not yet prepared to make known
the date and exact nature of the
event. C. W. Smith, captain of
the winners, expressed fear that the
losers were stalling and might nev
er come up to their agreement. The
opposing captain, C. L. Sweek, made
answer, showing that the social
schedule would probably prevent
the entertainment taking place until
next fall.
S. E. Notson, lion tamer, was the
victim of a frame-up on the part of
officers and members, who conspir
ed to place him in the chair in order
to chastise him for allowing the
meeting of the week previous to run
over time. The chastisement was
taken in good part and Mr. Notson
utilized his advantageous place as
chairman in failing to recognize mo
tions unfavorable to him.
Action of the city council In au
thorizing the Lions club committee
to proceed with the street sign and
house numbering project was re
ported by Jasper Crawford, chair
man, who said the committee ex
pected to complete its work as soon
as possible. Appointment of Joseph
J. Nys, E. R. Huston and W. W.
Smead on the city administration
committee was announced.
Much appreciated by the mem
bers in attendance were two selec
tions by the high school boys' quar
tet, under the direction of Miss
Kate Francis Ede. The quartet
John Franzen, Fletcher Walker,
Homer Hayes and Duane Brown
was accompanied by James T. Lum-
ley, with the steel guitar.
Paul Marble, Russell Pratt and
Walter Moore were appointed on a
committee to work with Al Rankin
tq see what can be done toward ob
taining more comfortable and more
commodious quarters for the club's
meetings during the summer.

Chairman Legge of the Federal
Farm board proposes the following
question and explanation; "If grow
ers get more money by raising four
bushels of wheat where they are
now raising five why should they
destroy the market by raising the
extra bushel? A 20 per cent reduc
tlon would make the tariff effective
but the 10 per cent we are now sug
gestlng would In our judgment put
the trade on a fairly healthy basis.
If farmers are going ahead trying
to produce an additional surplus on
the basis that some way will be
found to take care of it on a fair
price level another year, they are
going to be mistaken.

Community Cooperation
Asked That Groups
May be Formed.
Readings and Musical Numbers
Have Place on Program of
Parent-Teacher Group.
The fine type of work being done
by 4-H clubs throughout the nation
was carefully explained by Charles
W. Smith, county agent, who urged
that this community coopoerate, by
aiding in the formation of clubs in
Heppner this was the keynote
sounded in a talk before the Parent
Teachers association at the Episco
pal parish house Tuesday evening.
Mrs. Lucy Rodgers, county school
superintendent, has a part in the
work and it is probable that Miss
Edith Stallard, county nurse, will
aid with the work next year. The
meaning of 4-H is head, heart,
hands and health, and these are al
ways kept uppermost in the minds
of members who through following
out the club projects reach a higher
standard of citizenship.
Many Children Enrolled.
In the United States, more than
700,000 boys and girls belong to the
clubs. Oregon has 11,000 members
last year, while Morrow county had
189 enrolled. This year the mem
bership in the county has been in
creased to 240 in 29 clubs.
To start a club five or more must
sign up for the same project. Auth
orized clubs cover a wide range of
instruction. Some of the clubs are
for calf raising, sheep raising, gar
dening, sewing, cooking and there
are many others, which are as bene
ficial to the boys and girls taking
part. After a boy or girl has done
the prescribed work an exhibit In a
fair is made of it which competes
against other projects of the same
kind. The project is not considered
complete until it has been on exhi
bition. Nine clubs are functioning
at Irrigon and eight at Boardman.
Irrigon has the only 4-H band in the
United States, and It is believed that
publicity to be given the band will
make the name of Morrow county
better known throughout the na
tion. No clubs are located in Hepp
ner, but it is the hope of Mr. Smith
that at least several may be organ
ized. In 1929 Morrow county clubs
finished 89.9 per cent of projects
started, and by so doing took fifth
place in the state. In times past,
he stated that many projects were
uncompleted, but that now things
are different, with a major portion
of the projects brought to comple
tion. Boys and girls who do not
complete their projects are not al
lowed to go on In other projects.
The work is open to boys and girls
from 9 to 18 years of age, and those
frm 18 to 21 may enter the senior
Scholarships Offered.
Two scholarships are offered by
Heppner banks, and four by Mor
row county for the best projects.
These entitle the winners to attend
the 4-H summer school at Oregon
State college, Corvallis, with expen
ses paid. The Union Pacific system
also offers a prize, and awards are
given for exhibits In the state fair.
Oregon has won successively for
three times, the Moses trophy, given

Effectiveness of Treating With
Chlorates on County Farms
Shown by Experiments.
Morning glory, Russian knap
weed and Canadian thistle can be
killed with the proper application of
chlorates, according to Chas. W.
Smith, Morrow county agricultural
Although the spraying of weeds
was still in the experimental stage
both calcium and soda chlorates
were applied to 40 patches of peren
nial weeds during 1929. In the past
two weeks a check has been made
on the percentage of weeds killed
by spraying and it has been found
that in every case where three
pounds of the chlorates were ap
plied to the square rod, after the
plants had bloomed, that 90 per
cent or more of the weeds were
Time of application seems to be
a determined factor in getting a
good kill. At the John Kenny farm
where the weeds were sprayed af
ter the seed pods had formed, a
100 per cent kill was made, while
at the John Brosnan ranch, where
the weeds were sprayed when the
plants were in full bloom, only 90
per cent were killed. At D. O.
Justus's where the morning glorys
were in all stages of growth, that is
some were just coming through the
ground and others were in full
bloom, the results were not as sat
isfactory. Results obtained from treating
Canadian thistle were almost iden
tical with those obtained from
treating morning glory. Canadian
thistles in full bloom and some be
ginning to dry up were sprayed at
the Jimmy Hayes ranch on Rhea
creek and a 100 per cent kill was
obtained. At the R. A. Thompson
farm where some of the thistles
were just through the ground and
others were in full bloom a kill of
approximately 90 per cent was ob
tained which proves late application
of sprays are the most effective.
Other farmers having patches of
morning glory which were sprayed
in 1929 and where the weeds were
in various stages of maturity, are
Wright Bros., Heppner; Ed Riet
mann, lone; Oscar Keithley, Eight
Mile; W. H. Cleveland, Heppner;
Cleve Van Schoiack, Heppner; Dav
id Rietmann, lone; Harvey McAl
ister, Lexington; O. C. Wageman,
Heppner; Missildine Bros., Hepp
ner; Roy Neill on Big Sutter creek;
George Peck, Lexington. From all
observations made up to this time
it would seem that the best kills
were obtained by applying sprays
as late in the season as is possible
before frost.
The county sprayer is being re
conditioned and is mounted on a
four-wheel trailer for the conven
ience of those farmers having weeds
they desire to spray. Any parties
having these weeds on their farms
may get information by calling at
the county agent's office regarding
the cost of spraying. A field trip
is being planned for early In June
when all Interested will be given
an opportunity to view last year's
spraying results.
Elks Trek to Condon
Fdr Initiatory Rites
That thev were royally entertain
ed and had a glorious time was the
word brought back by members of
Heppner Elks lodge No. 358 who
journeyed to Condon Saturday to in
itiate a class of candidates. Eleven
from Condon, Fossil, lone and
Heppner became members of the
lodge following initiation in the af
ternoon. More than 100 members
were In attendance.
A fine dinner was served at the
banquet In the evening, which drew
an assembly of more than 150, Elks
and their ladies. William "Bill"
Wilkins of Condon, who had an ac
tive part in the day's program, serv
ed In the role of toastmaster. Offi
cers of the lodge responded with
talks upon request of the toastmas
ter. A large crowd attended the dance
which brought the day's program to
a close. Although no action was
taken at the time, it was the con
census of opinion that, next year,
the class of Condon and Fossil can
didates would come here for a sim
ilar program.
Pipe for Connecting
Well to Main Arrives
That the Heppner city council In
tends to speed the connection of the
new artesian well with the present
main is indicated by the fact that
pipe for the connection arrived in
Heppner this morning. Fourteen
sections of 10-Inch pipe, each 30
feet long, arrived with connecting
unions, and was dispatched imme
diately to the site of the well. The
load of pipe was brought to Hepp
ner by truck,
The city council will meet at 8
o'clock Monday evening to make
further plans for the Installation
and operation of the city water sys

Board of Condon Clouts Home Run
Through Right Field Fence
Scoring Two Teammates.
Condon's older heads played
smarter baseball, and therein lies
the tale of the defeat of Heppner's
youngsters 15-7 at Rodeo Held Sun
day. It wasn't that the home boys
didn't try, or that they didn't give
a good account of themselves. They
did; but they lacked the confidence
and instinctive playing ability that
comes with years of practice, such
as many of the older heads on the
Condon team possess.
There was no real blow-up inning.
Condon's runs came four in the sec
ond Inning, three in the third, five
in the fifth, two in the seventh and
one in the ninth; Heppner's, three
in the second, one in the fifth and
three in the ninth.
