5 DIVISIONS NAMED
Cooperative Marketing Holds Lime
light; Three-Day Program
Crowded With Interest
By C. W. SMITH,
Agricultural Agent, Morrow County.
Three nationally known speakers
will appear on the program at the
Eastern Oregon Wheat league con
ference to be held in Heppner, Dec.
11, 12 and 13. First in importance
of these is George S. Milnor, man
ager of Farmers National Grain cor
poration. This organization is the
first of the nation-wide cooperatives
set up with the advice of the Fed
eral $"arm board and is by far the
most important. It is handling more
wheat this year than any other or
' ganization in the world's history.
Mr. Milnor will tell of the mis
takes, successes and the probable
future development of cooperative
grain selling in America.
Russia Known by Wilson.
Next in importance is Dr. M. L.
Wilson, head of the department of
economics at Montana State col
lege. Dr. Wilson is probably the
best informed man in the world on
trends of wheat acreage in this and
foreign countries. He is the only
man outside of Russia who has an
intimate personal knowledge of ag
ricultural developments in that
country. On Thursday evening,
Dec. 11, Dr. Wilson will describe
farming conditions in Russia, giv
ing a talk illustrated by more than
100 lantern slides.
The third nationally known
speaker will be N. W. Thatcher,
manager Farmers Union Terminal
association of St. Paul, Minn., the
oldest truly sucessful farmer-owned
and operated grain selling organiza
tion in the United States. Mr.
Thatcher will talk on the lessons
learned from 20 years in marketing
. An unusual feature of the meet
ing will be the appearance of speak
ers from seven states. Mr. Milnor
is coming from Chicago. Dr. M. L.
Wilson of Montana is hurrying
from Washington, D. C, for the
meeting. Mr. Thatcher is from
Minnesota. F. J. Wilmer, president
North Pacific Grain growers,
comes from Spokane, Wash., L. M.
Jcffers from Sacramento, Cal., Mark
J. Mean from Lewiston, Idaho, and
a number of speakers from Oregon
make up the seven states represent
ed and give the Oregon meeting a
Committee Meetings Important
The officers of the wheat league
believe that no Inland Empire
wheat growers meeting has ever
had such an array of talent as will
be heard at the three-day meeting
in Heppner. But they point out,
as important as these sessions are,
and as Interesting as their talks
will be, the first two days of the
conference will prove even more
Important and Interesting.
There are five committees, of
which it is dilllcult to pick out the
most Important. However, there
is more talk of cooperative market
ing and the position of the Federal
Farm board. The presence of Mr.
Milnor, Mr. Thatcher and Mr. Wil
mer will further intensify this in
terest, so it is safe to assume the
cooperative marketing committee
will draw more than its share of
attention. This committee is head
ed by A. R. Shumway of Milton,
with George Gatlin, marketing spe
cialist of Oregon State college as
Perhaps the second committee in
Importance is the transportation
committee with Roy Ritner of Pen
dleton as chairman. This group
deals with freight rates on rail and
water and questions relating to
truck hauling. The low price of
wheat has strengthened the insist
ent demands of Columbia basin far
mers that the Columbia river be
utilized. Mark Means of Lowiston,
Idaho, will present a concrete plan
for barge transportation on the
Hyslnp to Tell Grades.
Another committee certain to
have interesting sessions is the
wheat handling committee with
Sam Thompson of Pendleton as
chairman and Prof. G. R. Hyslop of
Oregon State college as secretary,
ProfcsHor Hyslop recently spent a
year for the United States depart
ment of agriculture, Ironing out in-
equalities in the grain grades, and
proposed changes In these grades
will be presented.
The other two committees deal
with wheat production and legisla
tion. They are headed respectively
by Frank Emerson, The Dalles, and
Chas. Harth, The Dalles.
As in former years those attend
ing will meet with the committee
group where their chief interest lies
The committee will informally
thresh out the questions brought
before them and the last day of the
meeting will submit reports to the
entire conference, These reports
will be accepted or amended and
will govern the wheat league's pro
gram for the coming year.
FOG CAUSES CRASH
IN PLANE TAKE-OFF
New Stinson-Detroiter from Seattle,
Forced to Land Near Here,
Is Badly Damaged.
A Stinson-Detroiter four-passenger
monoplane, belonging to A. E.
Paulson of Seattle, crashed in an at
tempted take-off in a field in the
hilltops between Butter and Hinton
creeks ten miles east of Heppner
Thanksgiving morning. The plane
had been taxied and towed some
four miles, after making a forced
landing about a week previous on
land belonging to Mike Kenny near
Butter creek. Dense fog, which pre
vailed in the region, is given as the
reason for the delayed attempt to
raise the plane, and the crash at
the time the attempt was made.
The plane had just been purchas
ed by Mr. Paulson for barnstorm
ing. The landing was made on its
initial flight. The party, including
Mr. and Mrs. Paulson and L. H. Mc
Henry, pilot, had left Seattle on the
report of clear weather prevailing
as far east as Pendleton. Fog was
encountered soon after leaving Se
attle, however, and the first land
seen .was that where the landing
was made. No damage was done in
The party came to Heppner, and
thinking the plane could soon be
moved, they advertised that pass
enger flights would be made here
last Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday. Continuance of fog pre
vented them meeting this schedule,
and the attempted take-off was fin
ally made for fear the plane would
be snowed in.
Bruce Gibb, local student aviator
who witnessed the attempted take
off, said the plane had cleared the
ground some two feet when an ob
struction was encountered, causing
the plane to crash. Its speed was
estimated at 70 miles an hour, as
this is said to be the speed the
plane must attain in order to leave
the ground. Mr. Paulson and the
pilot, who were la the plane, were
uninjured. They estimated the dam
age at $700. This was covered by
The party left Heppner for Seattle
on Friday, and an Insurance ad
juster arrived Monday from Port
land in company with a wrecker,
dismantling the plane and taking
it to the city.
Heppner Boy Hits
Aged Man With Car
Onez Parker, who with other
members of his family were in
Walla Walla for the Thanksgiving
season with relatives, figured in a
serious auto mishap there on Fri
day evening. The facts are pre
sented in a special dispatch to the

morning revealed that he had a
Parker had stopped to let another
car go by and after he started again
he said the lights from another car
blinded him and he did not see Tur
ner in front of his machine. Police
attached no blame to Parker.
CAR BADLY DAMAGED.
A new Graham-Paige sedan be
longing to Mr. Graves of San Fran
cisco, representative of the Amer
ican Hose Manufacturing company
of Oakland, Cal., was badly wreck
ed about 8:30 o'clock Monday morn
ing when it skidded on a slippery
place in the highway seven miles
north of Heppner, and turned com
pletely over. Mr. Graves was ac
companied by Mr. Barnes, repre
senting the Eureka Hose company
of Seattle. Both men were shaken
up and bruised considerably, while
Mr. Barnes suffered a head injury
which kept him confined to bed for
a time. The men were on their
way to Heppner to present bids for
furnishing hose to the city council,
opening of which took place that
evening. The car was towed into
Heppner and the insurance com
pany having full coverage of the
car was notified.
All the grade school pupils of the
Heppner schools with the exception
of the second gave a public enter
tainment yentcrday afternoon in the
auditorium, in which they reviewed
music for the term. The entertain
ment was under the direction of
Miss Charlotte Woods, music super
visor, and was attended by fifty
mothers. The first and third grade
rhythm bands assisted in the en
tertainment. The second grade was
unable to participate because of so
many of the pupils being out of
school with mumps.

CAR TURNS TURTLE.
Al Rankin, popular Heppner hotel
manager, was the victim of an auto
mobile accident while returning
from Pendleton Saturday evening.
Though escaping with slight per
sonal injury, his car, a Chevrolet
coach, was badly damaged when it
skidded and turned completely over
on Muffet hill between Pilot Rock
and Vinson. An unexpected icy
spot in the road caused the car to
skid, and Mr. Rankin said the turn
ing over took place quite slowly, re
sembling a slow motion picture, and
he thought of getting out and at
tempting to hold it up. He was not
traveling fast. Both wheels on the
right side of the car collapsed, and
fenders and top were badly dented,
though no glass whatever was brok
en. Mr. Rankin, who was traveling
alone, picked up a ride to Pilot
Rock from where he telephoned
Heppner for a wrecker, and the car
was towed into here. Insurance will
take care of a large portion of the
damage, he said, though he bemoan
ed the breaking of a jar of pre
serves which he was bringing to
Mrs. C. C. Patterson. The pre
serves were not a total loss, either,
as two men passing by gladly took

al local arrangements, urges all
committees to keep him informed
of special developments as they
arise. He especially urges local peo
ple to take note of the principal
speakers, and to plan to attend
these sessions. Many of the speak
ers have national reputations, and
their messages will be of import
ance and interest to all. By attend
ing, local people will give them the
recognition to which their high po
sitions entitle them.

Supper and sermon at 11. Church
school at 9:45. Let us Bee that our
children are in Sunday school every
Sunday morning and on time. They
get little enough training in the
things of God and of the things of
the spirit in this age of pleasure
and material things. If you can't
or won't bring them yourselves,
don't rob them of Christ's invita
tion to little children. Young Peo
