HEPPNER GAZETTE TIMES. HEPPNER, OREGON, THURSDAY, MAY 22, 1930.
MRS. A. T. HEREIM, Correspondent.
The class of 1930 having com
pleted its four years, held com
mencement exercises May 14 at the
auditorium Mrs.. Martha M. Titus
played the processional, Rev VV. O.
Miller gave the invocation, Miss
Nellie Dillon gave the salutatory.
A piano solo by Miss Henry follow
ed. Miss Linda Hango having the
highest average over the four years
was valedictorian, and also received
the scholarship given by several of
the smaller colleges of the state, the
equivalent of $50 in tuition at the
college she selects. A pleasing vocal
solo by Mrs. Marschat was enjoyed.
The commencement address was
given by Dr. Daniel V. Poling of
Oregon State college. It was of an
utterly different type than that of
last year, and was especially good
with his quick wit and deep
thoughts making a fine impression
with his audience. Alvie Mefford
the third member of the graduating
class made the presentation of the
class gift, a bust of George Wash
ington. Charles Wicklander, a
member of the board of education
presented the diplomas to the three
graduates, Nellie Dillon, Linda Han
go and Alvie Mefford. A vocal duet
by Ray Barlow and Buster Rands
completed the program.
George Blayden returned home
Wednesday after an extended stay
at New Plymouth, Idaho. He was
also at Vale and Burns since leaving
here some time ago.
Mrs. W. D. Lynch and daughter
Francis of Portland stopped over
night at the J. R. Johnson home on
Wednesday and on Sunday continu
ed on their way to Pullman, Wash,
Tuesday was the first wedding
anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Chas.
Wicklander and the event was cel
ebrated by a fine dinner at the
Wicklander home with the Meads,
Rands and Dillaboughs present
Messrs. and Mesdames Mead, Rands
and Dillaboughs attended the wed
ding of the Wicklanders at Arling
ton a year ago.
Mrs. A. A. Agee came home Wed
nesday from La Grande where she
has been caring for Mrs. Walter
Knauff and baby daughter. Mrs.
Agee was an overnight guest on
Tuesday at the Chas. Nizer home
Both the Nizers and the Knauffs
were former Boardman residents,
moving to La Grande a year ago,
J. L. Jenkins and Ed Kunze were
visitors at the Nizer home also,
They are shearing in that vicinity
Mrs. Brice, another former Board
man resident, stayed with Mrs,
Knauff for several days after Mrs,
Agee's departure. Mrs. Brice, who
now makes her home in Ridgefield,
Wash., was in La Grande visiting
her daughter, Lillian, who attends
normal school there.
Mrs. A. W. Porter spent a few
days in Portland, going down on
Jess Lower, who was so badly
hurt two weeks ago, is making
miraculous recovery after lying un
conscious for a period of ten days
and is expected home this week.
Macombers spent the week end
at Pilot Rock with relatives. Mary
Chaffee accompanied them on the
Mrs. Leslie Packard had her ton
sils removed on Thursday at Her-
miston by Dr. Christopherson. She
got along very nicely.
Bert Rose has purchased a new
sport model roadster.
Mrs. H. V. Tyler was pleased to
have her brother, Harry Hays of
Hood River, here for a short visit
Robert Nethercott and family left
Sunday for Pendleton and will later
go to Bend and Klamath Falls. Mr.
Nethercott has been barbering here
the past winter.
The teachers left for their various
homes on Thursday. The Marschats
went to Berkeley to attend summer
school. Miss Henry went to La
Grande to visit for a time and will
later go to Athena to visit her
mother. Miss Spike went to her
home in Echo. She may teach this
fall again or attend school, her
plans being still indefinite. Miss
Brown and Mrs. Titus are still here,
as is Mr. King. Mrs. Titus will at
tend school at La Grande and Miss
Brown at Ellensburg during the
Paul. Stanley and Harold Hatch
were Boardman visitors on Sunday
and were guests -at the Hango
home. Paul is still negotaiting with
the city council for the lease of the
local light plant and a contract has
been drawn up, but no decision has
yet been made. Some members of
the council are in favor of the step
but others feel that if the Umatilla
Rapids dam should ever be con
structed that Boardman consumers
would be tied up with a contract
for power at present prices while
other communities would be able to
purchase cheap power. A 20-year
contract is under advisement and
many changes are possible in 20
ears. Boardman will never become
city but would no doubt exper
ience some benefits of the boom
which always follows a large piece
of construction work.
Mr. and Mrs. C. G. Blayden, Guy
Barlow and Mrs. J. F. Barlow mo
tored to Heppner Saturday to take
the ballots to the county seat, and
on other business.
Boardman is gaining quite a rep
utation this season with her snappy
ball team, having yet to meet her
Waterloo. On Sunday the team
played Echo at the neighboring
town, with disastrous results to the
Echo team, the score being 15 to 1.
When Boardman was making a ser
ious attempt to play ball several
years ago and was having a difficult
time to raise funds for an imported
battery she did not fare so well nor
have so good a time as tnis year
with a pick-up team of players rang
ing in age from eighth graders to
staid project farmers of mature
years. This idea of a small town
paying from $15 to $25 each Sunday
for outside players is like driving a
Lincoln car on a Ford income. Next
Sunday's game promises to be in
teresting. It will be held at Lexington.
Mrs. John Pruter is pleased to
have her sister, Mrs. J. Uher of
Jollet, 111., with her for a stay of
several months. Mr. Pruter has
been having trouble with rheuma
tism for a time. The Pruters have
worked up a fine little business sell
ins fruit and garden truck with
their truck, driving to Condon, Kin-
zua, Bend and other places. They
always raise a large quantity of
melons, having nine acres in this
year. Because of the continued cold
weather they, along with other far
mers, have had difficulty with cut
worms and have jbeen forced to do
The primary election was a very
quiet affair here with a great many
voters failing to take advantage of
their franchise. Joseph and Norblad
were the gubernatorial tavorites
with the former receiving 18 votes
and the latter 16. Bailey, who prov
ed so popular elsewhere had only
three supporters here and Corbett
only 22. Other candidates received
a few scattering votes. For county
judge Campbell walked away with
25 votes and Bleakman 10. The
vote for assessor was tied with each
getting 21 ballots.
