Ninth Rodeo Greeted by
Throngs, With Climax
On Last Day.
Are Seale Does Fast Hoping in 29
Seconds; McPherson Wins
Derby; Fine Horses Shown.
Heppner's population was quad
rupled on Saturday as the ninth an
nual Rodeo gathered momentum
through performances of the two
previous days and that day reached
a climax In interest and attendance
well up to, if not surpassing, the
last day of any previous year, de
spite the cold wind and dust clouds
which enshrouded events at track
and arena. Crowds which greeted
the Thursday and Friday perform
ances were well up to those of for
' mer years, and the smoothness with
which the show was carried out
each day denoted better organiza
tion throughout than ever before.
One Walter Bonifer of Gibbon,
Umatilla county, was the outstand
ing bronco buster, from the list of
20 who took part in the bucking
contest, riding Julius Meier to first
place honor and the $100 purse.
Bonifer's final ride was acclaimed
by the stands on every hand, as the
tan colored bronco reared, plunged,
twisted, and went through every
devilish motion calculated to make
a land lubber of -would-be top
hands, but all of which failed to
dampen Cowboy Bonifer's tenac
ious ardor and he rode through to
glory. Bonifer was introduced to
Heppner Rodeo crowds the first
time this year, though he is known
as a rider of merit. He rode in the
world championship bucking con
test at the recent Pendleton Round
Up, and also attempted an exhibi
tion ride there on Midnight Though
he was thrown by the ebony-hued
outlaw of wide reknown, other
cowboys agree that this is no dis
honor. Bonifer rode Ed Bailey
here the first day, and Roan Gur
dane in the semi-finals.
Depew Versatile Cowboy
Second and third place honors in
the bucking were divided between
Kenneth Depew and Bert Evans,
while Ed Larson took fourth. If a
prize had been given for the best all
round cowboy, Depew would un
doubtedly have been the recipient
The Blender youth from Uklah took
part in more events than any other
single entrant. He took first place
in the calf roping Friday. He rode
the Gilliland string of horses to vic
tory in both the pony express and
relay races, and also rode the Ro
man race. He made two pretty
rides on Phil Metschan, drawing
the wild mustang Friday and again
in the semi-finals. His final ride
was made on Black Bottom, one of
the toughest of the lot
Evans rode Madam Queen on Fri
day. In the semi-finals, he got a
bad start on Ma Kennedy was piled,
and given a re-ride on Whistling
Rufus. He drew Teapot Dome in
the finals. Larsen qualified Thurs
day on Sinbad, rode Ben Bolt in the
semi-finals, and placed in the money
on Baby Doll.
Six riders qualified for the finals,
the other two with their mounts be
ing Paul Luffman on Ma Kennedy
and Jack McMann on Colored Boy.
Luffman's first horse laid down on
him, and he was given a reride on
Fast time in the calf roping was
made Thursday by Art Seale, vet
eran range hand of Condon, with 29
seconds. Kenneth Depew made sec
. ond fastest time for the three days
on Friday, 32 seconds. Joe Kenny
followed him closely with 32 2-5,
made Thursday. Eleven ropers
participated in this event Thursday
and Friday, and nine on Saturday.
The calves evidently became wilder
near the end of the show, as slower
time was made Saturday. Tony Vey
took flrBt the last day with 43 2-5
Frank Swaggart Injured
Two feature races, the chariot
and Roman races, augmented the
racing feature of the show, which
Included saddle horse, boys' pony,
cowboy, relay, pony express and
special races. The chariot race
was run Friday and Saturday with
Add Moore and Clarence Moore
driving the two four-horse teams.
The Roman race was run Saturday
onlv with Kenneth Depew and
Johnny Eubanks riding a dead heat.
Several strings of fast horses fur
nished entries for the various races.
Among these were the Gilliland
horses from Uklah, the W. M. Mc
Pherson string, Frank and Gerald
Swaggart horses, and a string prom'
Inent at the Round-Up brought over
from Pendleton by David Penny
and Harry Dick, two Umatilla In
dians. The racing climax came on Sat
urday with the running of the Mor
row County derby, a three-quarter
mile race with three entries, In
which McPherson took first, Ollll-
land second and Gerald Swaggart
The most severe casualty of the
entire rodeo came In the cowboy
race Friday, when Frank Swag'
Kurt's horse fell with him on round'
lng the turn for the home stretch

FOR RODEO HELP
Club Extended Invitation
By Gilliam County
PLAY NEXT MONTH
Commercial Club Meeting Will be
Called Soon to Take Out Card
In State Chamber.
Officers of the Heppner Rodeo as
sociation ' extended thanks to the
Lions club for its active part in
helping put across the show last
week end, at the club meeting Mon
day. The message was conveyed
through C. L. Sweek, Lions presi
dent who also said that indications
from an incomplete check-up were
that the show was a success finan
cially though total receipts would
probably show a little less than last
In connection with the work of
fixing up the Lions float, the club
voted thanks to Mrs. Earl W. Gor
don, Mrs. W. R. Poulson and Mrs.
Russell Pratt, who offered much
assistance. Mrs. Gordon had charge
of the decorating.
An invitation from the Gilliam
County Fair association to attend
their fair and rodeo this week end
was read by President Sweek. The
invitation asked that the Heppner
Lions attend in a body and bring
the float exhibited in the parades
at Heppner, the float being compli
mented by John P. Hess, secretary
of the association, who signed the
invitation. Discussion revealed that
it would be impossible to send a
large delegation from the Lions
club, though several signified their
intention of attending either Fri
day or Saturday. The matter of
gaining the club recognition at Con
don was left in the hands of B. G.
Sigsbee and Frank Turner, two
members who signified such inten
tion. The idea of taking the float
was abandoned, as it was disman
tled Saturday evening.
S. E. Notson president of the
Heppner Commercial club, told
briefly of some of the work of the
Oregon State Chamber of Com-'
merce, including the "On to Ore
gon" movement which has for its
purpose Industrial development of
the state, and the land settlement
work. A recent communication
from W. G. Ide, secretary, suggest
ed that an entire meeting of the
Lions club be given over to go into
the matter in detail. The Lions
club sponsored reorganization of
the Heppner Cmmercial club part
ly that a membership in the state
organization could be taken out
This work has not yet been complet
ed, Mr. Notson stated, and he an
nounced that a meeting of the com
mercial club would be called in con
nection with the Lions luncheon
within a few weeks for this pur
pose. The date will be arranged to
work in conveniently with the Lions
Sign for Play
The committee in charge of pre
senting a Lions play announced

be formed primarily from members
of the Lions club. However, as 150
people are included in the evening's
entertainment, othfr folks in the
community will be called on for as

Home Raised Rations
For Sheep Discussed
Twenty sheepmen attended the
meeting addressed by H. A. Lind
gren, Oregon State college exten
sion specialist at American Legion
hall Thursday evening. The meet
ing was scheduled by C. W. Smith,
county agent, for the purpose of
having Mr. Lindgren acquaint
sheepmen with rations made up
from home-grown feeds, and to lay
plans for securing horses to use as
bait in poisoning coyotes.
Elmer Williams, representative
of the U. S. Biological survey was
present and said it would require
31 horses to plant the territory
planned to be covered, between El
sie s meadow and Ukiah. Of these
23 were pledged at the meeting.
Mr. Lindgren said that an excel
lent balanced ration for sheep can
be made from wheat with the ad
dition of a small amount of cotton
seed cake. The mixture can be fed
with wheat chaff, he said. An ex
periment carried on at the Union
experiment station for the past
three years, using black faced
ewes, shows that good quality al
falfa hay has proved as satisfac
tory and more economical . than
some of the higher priced rations
Charlie Swindig, manager of
Heppner Farmers Elevator com
pany, stated that his company is
planning the Installation of machin
ery for making cubes from wheat,
molasses and cottonseed cake,
which can be fed upon the range.
Much interest was taken In this
phase of the problem, Mr. Smith
said. It is expected no corn will be
imported this year, wheat to be us
ed extensively in its place.

While Oregon's present guberna
torial campaign has awakened
more than usual interest and cam
paign leaders generally expect a
good turn out at the polls, more
reason for active interest is seen in
the thirteen proposed measures
which may have considerably more
effect on the progress and prosper
ity of the state than the election of
a governor. At any rate, the choos

the selection of a governor and
passing on the measures, puts up to
Mr. Voter a job which he is not
expected to shirk, and party leaders
are urging that all persons with
the franchise right look up their
registration to see that they are
entitled to vote November 4.
Must Register Soon.
Registration books close 30 days
before election, leaving but a short
time for this matter to be attended
to. The law now is that everyone
to be entitled to vote must be duly
registered, and no one not so reg
istered may be sworn in on election
day. If a voter has moved to a
different precinct than the one
where he last voted, his registra
tion will be corrected by the clerk
if notice is given. Anyone who has
not voted at a regular election with
in two years from the present elec
tion must register in order to vote.
Those who have voted at a regular
election within the last two years
need not register unless they have
moved to -a different precinct from
the one voted in last In the case
of women who have married since
last voting, the new name should
be shown on the registration boohs.
Boys and girls of voting age attend
ing college away from home are en
titled to vote absentee ballots,
which may be obtained on applica
tion to the clerk of their home
