The play, "Are You a Mason,"
is a farcical comedy in three acts

their frequent absence from the
joint household by falsely pretend

know each others duplicity and each

to the leadership of the lodge. The
older woman was so well pleased
with the supposed distinctions of
her husband that she made him
promise to put up the name of a
visiting friend for membership.
To tell the story of the play would
require columns,, its complications
are so numerous. The hilarious fun
begins in the first act and grows to
the last curtain.

TO DISPENSE CHEER
Club Joins Elks In Christmas Pro
ject; Heppner-Spray Road
Given Further Discussion.
Final arrangements for the East
rn Oregon Wheat conference,
starting in Heppner today, were dis
cussed at the Monday meeting of
Lions, who have charge of local de
tails. C. W. Smith, chairman of the
general committee, complimented
the members of the various com
mittees for their fine cooperation.
He especially urged local people to
attend sessions of the conference,
not only to learn, first hand, prob
lems of farmer-neighbors, but to
give a warm welcome to the noted
speakers slated to appear.
The wheat conference has been
uppermost in the minds of Lions
since they first took over the spon
sorship of local arrangements more
than a month ago. They feel the
city is especially honored in draw
ing the conference this year, with
what is acknowledged to be the fin
est array of speakers ever to favor
such a meeting in eastern Oregon.
Mr. Smith said not a single turn
down was received from speakers
Visitors Add Cheer
J. Alger Fee, circuit judge here
for the annual court session, a guest
at the meeting, lent emphasis to the
importance of the meeting and the
honor conferred upon the commun
ity in its coming here. Judge Fee
is scheduled to address the confer
ence on transportation problems
and the Umatilla Rapids project,
of which he is an ardent student.
He expressed the hope that wheat-
growers may devise a workable plan
for uplifting their industry, and
that legislators, lawyers and busi
ness men be ignored in putting it
Judge Fee was but one of the vis
itors who lent spice to the meeting,
and helped to crowd the American
Legion hall with one of the largest
attendances at any club meeting.
A. Beckwith of Pendleton, veter
an court reporter who has covered
circuit court sessions here for the
last 32 years, added a reminiscing
touch when he said he always look
ed forward to his visits to Heppner
vacation; though the nearest
thing to a Lions club he could re
member in the old days was the
place where the toys got together
and put their feet on the rail, which
along toward morning did resemble
a lions' den.
Yl'heatman Is Guest
Bert Johnson, lone wheatralser
introduced by President Sweek as a
lawyer who had attained a higher
station in life, acknowledged being
impressed with the ceremonies and
declared Lions' activities could well
be extended to bring about a closer
relationship between the farmers
and businessmen. . Homer I. Watts,
Athena attorney, responded to his
introduction by a timely witticism
on the overindulged sport of law
yers, that of after-dinner speaking.
George N. Peck, executive commit
teeman for Morrow county of the
Eastern Oregon Wheat league, ex
pressed the thanks of that organi
zation to the club for the coopera
tion given and extended an urgent
invitation for all the business men
of the city to attend the sessions of
Though the meeting was crowded
with impromtu entertainment, the
Lions took time to vote to stand
their share of the community
Christmas in cooperation with
Heppner lodge of Elks. A commit
tee appointed to assist tho Elks was
named as follows: C. B. Cox, Jap
Crawford, Carl Cason, J. O. Turner
and F. B. Nickerson.
More Work Said Need
Attention was also given the
club's major project, sponsorship of
the Heppner-Spray road, on recom
mendation of G. A. Bleakman, coun
ty commissioner, that inliuence
should be brought to bear on the
state highway commission at Its
meeting today to gain further rec
ognition for tho road. The matter
was left in the hands of the club's
Heppner-Spray road committee,
headed by P. M. Gcmmell, to work
out the most effective attack which
might be employed.
As a special entertainment fea
ture, Miss Charlotto Woods, school
supervisor of music, sang two ap
propriate solos with Mrs. William
R. Poulson, piano accompanist, that
were well received.
