100 BABIES TO SHOW
Big Home-Talent Sponsored by
Lions to Appear Two Mights
Rehearsals for the Lions club big
community production, "Aunt Lu
cia," to be presented next Tuesday
and Wednesday nights at the Hepp
ner school auditorium, are well un
der way. The cast has been work
ing faithfully every night and ev
erything points toward a big show.
And now Aunt Lucia's famous
Flapper Chorus has been chosen.
Without question this will be the
big sensation of the show. This
group consists of 25 of Heppner's
most prominent business men play
ing the parts of college girls. Each
is noted for his beauty of form,
face and figure and will be dressed
in a particular type of costume, and
the various types of modern flapper
such as Clara Bow, Teacher's Pet,
Cleopatra, the Vamp of Heppner,
etc., will be represented. They are
going to strut and dance their way
across the stage, and no one can
afford to miss them. You have, no
doubt, seen choruses and shows,
but you have never seen anything
like the college flapper chorus of
Glee Club to Sing.
And besides the above named cho
rus we have the big College Glee
Club which is just as much of an
attraction. Fifteen or 16 of the
most representative singers among
the business men are going back to
college days and sing a number of
old time songs to open the famous
show, "Aunt Lucia." This is some
thing different from other glee
clubs and well deserves mention.
At the first rehearsal last evening
the men got off to a flying start,
so we can look forward to some real
singing. Some of the songs to be
sung are "Collegiate," "Bula, Bula,"
"Carry Me Back to Old Virginia,"
"Hail, Hail, the Gang's An Here,"
"Show Me the Way to Go Home,"
For color and beauty we have the
girls choruses. Twenty-five local
girls, the pick of the community,
are singing and dancing In the big
show. They are attractively cos
tumed and their steps are catchy
and their songs tuneful. They have
been working all week and the re
sult In a mighty fine chorus.
Baby Show Popular.
The Baby Pageant is one of the
unique features of the show. One
hundred youngsters In the local
community have been chosen to
take part in this big pageant. This
curtain raiser is led by Mrs. P. M.
Gemmell as dramatic reader and
the youngsters are bound to be one
of the attractions of the show. Nev
er before has such an array of chil
dren been used in any kind of a
production. Throughout the coun
try where the baby show has been
staged it has been one of the main
features. So you'll want to see
"Aunt Lucia" for the baby pageant
alone, If for no other reason.
You can see that "Aunt Lucia"
is a well-rounded production and
promises a treat for everyone re
gardless of what his taste may be.
Tickets are on sale now and can be
exchanged, at no extra charge, for
a reserve seat at Gordon's Drug

SAY CONDITIONS GOOD.
Gleaned from the "Come and Go"
column of the Oregonian this morn
ing is the following item relative to
two former Heppnerites, and con
ditions in Grant county: "Used to
be that a sheepman announced his
business with a megaphone," said
Glenn Boyer of Fox valley, Grant
county, "but now when he says he
is in sheep he sorta drops his voice
and holds his hand over his mouth
so he won't be heard. Yes, that's
the way the sheep business Is now.
A fellow doesn't boast so much
about It as he did a few years ago
when a band of sheep meant real
money." "There's been some rain
In the mountains," adds Guy Boyer
of Monument brother of Glenn.
"The boys are feeling so good since
we had a rain and the grass began
growing that I think they'll even go
to the polls and vote. Before the
rain they were too disgusted to
think of voting, but they are perk
ing up now and wearing their hats
on the backs of their heads, or
rather on the side, chipper like
you know how it goes when there is
a good rain and grass and things
begin to look better to the stock'
man. Well, that's the way It Is In

New Report Cards
Adopted by School
The new report cards adopted by
the Morrow county unit of the Ore
gon State Teachers association at
the institute recently held here have
been delivered to the county school
superintendent. The Heppner grade
school is using the new cards and
they were issued yesterday for the
first time this year. v "
With the issuance of the cards
W. R. Poulson, city superintendent
announces the grading symbols us
ed locally. In marking physical ed
ucation grades but two symbols are
used, F and P, denoting failure or
passing respectively. The markings
are based entirely upon the child's
attitude toward gymnasium work,
as the work is given for the benefit
of each child and there are no de
grees of perfection in doing the
work. Other subjects are graded
with numerals, 1, 2, 3 and 4 as pass
ing grades, 1 being the highest and
4 the lowest passing grade. Mr.
Poulson says the cards are self
explanatory, though parents wish

about them may receive it at his

NOTED MEN INVITED
Lions Club Offers Help and All City
Expected to Cooperate; Action
Taken by Directors.
The annual conference of the
Eastern Oregon Wheat league will
be held in Heppner, December 11,
12 and 13. This decision was made
at a meeting of the league executive
committee in Hermiston last Fri
day, reports C. W. Smith, county
agent who attended the meeting In
company with George N. Peck of
Lexington, Morrow county commit
teeman. "This is the only organization of
wheat men in Oregon, and the 11
counties bordering and tributary to
the Columbia river always send del
egates to this conference," said Mr.
Smith, who declared It will require
cooperation of every business man
and citizen to take care of the
crowd and to "put It over."
The Lions club has already offered
cooperation in helping to arrange
entertainment, rooms and meals
for the visitors. The club was part
ly instrumental in bringing the con
ference, by extending its invitation
at the time the conference was held
in Pendleton last year. Two years
ago Arlington successfully enter
tained the gathering.
The conference this year is ex
pected to be of extraordinary in
terest and importance, Mr. Smith
says, because of the many problems
facing the wheat producers, and it
is expected the largest attendance
of wheat men ever attending the
league conference will be had here.
Speakers of national reputation are
being contacted, and it is expected
at least part of these will be se
cured. Among the many questions to be
discussed are "Conditions in Russia
which might affect the future price
of wheat," "Bulk vs. sack handline
of grain," "Feeding wheat to live
stock to reduce the surplus," "Smut,
it's habits and cotrol." There will
be a report of the North Pacific
Grain Growers corporation to in
clude the amount of grain handled,
methods of marketing, and the fu
ture prospects for successful sell
ing cooperatively. Transportation
and freight rates will come before
the delegates for lengthy discus
sion, and to assist in this phase of
the program members of the Colum
bia Valley association and the chief
engineer in charge of investigation
al work for development of the Col
umbia river will be invited.
Numerous committees including
many members from Morrow coun
ty are being put to work gathering
information and data to be pre
sented to the conference. Local
members of these committees were
notified this week by Mr. Smith,

FINISHES T. B. TESTING.
H. H. Green, assistant state vet
erinarian from Salem, completed
testing of dairy cows in the county
the first of the week. All cows sup
plying milk for retail trade were
tested and found free from Infec
tion. The percentage of infection
throughout the county has been
found so small in the last three
testings that the county is entitled
to accredited standing. That this
has not been given is due to the
fact that range cattle have not been
tested, requirements for accredited
certification being that all cattle
must be tested. The rounding up
of range cattle for this purpose is
near an impossibility, says C. W.
Smith, county agent, who arranged
for the testing of dairy cows and
accompanied Mr. Green in the
