VICTORS ASK DINNER Committee in Charge of Placing House Numbers, Street Signs Plans Early Placement. 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.

LEGGE'S REMEDY STATED. 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. IRRIGATION NOTICE. Hours for Irrigation are 6 a. m. to 8 a. m. and 6 p. m. to 8 p. m. W. E. PRUYN, 7-8. City Water Dept. SMITH EXPLAINS 4-H CLOB WORK Community Cooperation Asked That Groups May be Formed. NEW COURSES ADDED 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 division. 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 (Continued on Page Eight) Pioneer Settler Dies While Playing Ball Funeral services for George W. Lmnbirth of Alpine, 56, were con ducted at 2 o'clock Wednesday af ternoon at the Echo Methodist church, with Rev. Ralph V. Hinkle. pastor of the Pendleton Episcopal church, officiating. Interment was In the Echo cemetery. Mr. Lambirth's death came al most instantaneously, following a heart attack, while participating in a baseball game Sunday. He came to Umatilla county in 1880 and con tinued his residence there until about five years ago. when with his family he moved to Alpine. Previous to his residence in Oregon, he lived at Reno, Nov., his birthplace. He is survived by his widow and three children, Celatha, Doris and Lester, all residing at the family home. Three brothers also survive. J. T. Lamblrth of Pendleton, and Frank and Lafe Lambirth of Home. "THREE WITNESSES." When three witnesses agree there seems to be strong reason for be lieving the testimony is reliable. The New Testament tells of three witnesses that agree. This will be the subject of the sermon on Sun day evening when the Heppner Church of Christ holds a service at the Rhea Creek Grange hall. The hour of service will be 8 o'clock and a large turnout is expected. Morning services will be at the usual time and place and the ser mon topic will be, "Pentecost and Evangelism." We nuulc our best record In ton- test points on last Sunday but must do even better before Halfway need be alarmed. Let's get at It! MILTON W. BOWER, Minister. SPRAY DESTROYS PERENNIAL WEEDS 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 agent 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 killed. 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 tem. This will comprise the main order of business for the evening. Mis. Lilly Boothby, neo Hayman, sister of Mrs. Dee Cnx Sr., died at Oakland, Calif., May 6. The remains were cremated in Oakland.

FRAY HERE SUNDAY Locals Strive Hard But Visitors' Experience Gives Them Lead. NO REAL BLOW-UPS 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. In Heppner's turn In the second Hake singled, Burns walked, Evans fanned, D. Bleakman made it first on an error which scored Hake and Burns, Hayes was out second to first, Thomson gained first on an error which scored D. Bleakman, Sprouls was out catcher to first In the fifth Thomson singled, Sprouls and Robertson flied out, B. Bleak man went first on an error which advanced Thomson who scored on Hake's single, Hake being thrown out at second in attempting to stretch his hit Then in the ninth Hayes went out unassisted to first baseman Board, Thomson made . first on an error as did Sprouls who followed, the two scoring on Rob ertson's hit; B. Bleakman walked, and Robertson scored when LaMear dropped the third strike on Hake and was forced to throw him out at first; Makinster was out third to first Condon's scoring nl the second In ning was by way of three hits and a walk and an error which allowed LaMear, Hollen, Smith and S. Bak er to cross the platter. In the third LaMear's double blow, an overthrow by Burns at first and hits by Smith and S. Baker, accounted for La Mear, Hollen and Smith scoring. First sacker Board made a hero of himself in the fifth when he bump ed the pellet through the right field fence for a home run, scoring Hol len and Smith who had hit ahead of him; two baggers by Clow and Don, followed by a fielding error accounted for these two gentlemen scoring also in this frame. In the seventh Clow's free passage to first, coupled with hits by Don and J. Baker let in two more. In the ninth Don scored after getting a safe blow, - Strikeouts were few and hitting plentiful, giving fans plenty of ac tion for their money.

Crop Reports Bring Wheat Prices Upward Grain prices continued to decline in futures during the past week and reached new low points for wheat and corn, but yesterday wheat took an upward turn stimulated by ad verse crop reports from southwest ern states. Following statistics are gleaned from recent government reports; The acreage sown to winter wheat in Oregon last fall was 896.000 acres, but since then 54.000 acres have been abandoned through various causes, leaving 842,000 acres, the yield of which Is estimated at 19 bushels per acre, or 15,998,000 bush els. This compares with 19,712,000 bushels harvested last year and with a 5-year average of 17,454,000 bushels. In the United States 43, 434,000 acres were sown last fall and 38.676,000 acres are left for harvest. The yield Is estimated 525,070,000 bushels, compared with 578,336,000 last year and a 5-year average of 547,785,000 bushels. LEGION TO MEET.
