IlRa A. T. HEREIM, Correspondent
Mrs. Walter L. Johnson of Idaho
gave a pleasing program Saturday
night before a very small audience,
the basketball game at Heppner
and the dance at Irrigon taking
away many who would otherwise
have attended. Mrs. Johnson's se
lections were interesting, humorous,
dramatic and sad. She was a house
guest of Mrs. E. T. Messenger dur
ing her stay in Boardman.
Rev. W. O. Miller and wife were
guests Sunday at the Faler home at
a lovely dinner.
Mrs. F. A. Fortier was here from
Union the past week, coming down
to be with her daughter Norma who
had her tonsils removed. Mr. For
tier drove down Saturday.
Doris, the small daughter of Mr
and Mrs. Fred may den who are
here for the winter, fell from a
chair Saturday and broke her arm
in two places.
The P. T. A. is sponsoring a dance
for February 14, which is St Val
entine's Day. Plans are also on foot
for a program of national or rath
er international type, with a repre
sentative number given by persons
of various nationalities on the pro
ject This gives promise of being
one of the most interesting pro
grams held here for some time. At
the last meeting of the P. T. A.
talk was given by Mrs. Rodgers,
county superintendent, on the sub
ject of the evening, "Courtesy." This
was much appreciated. At the pro
gram which preceded the business
meeting a little playlet was given
by the small folk of Miss Shellen
berger's room, some community
singing, a clever clog dance, were
also given. After several business
matters were taken up, chiefly the
organization voting to assist the
student body in completing the
showers and dressing rooms in the
basement of the gym, the crowd
went to the cafeteria where the
men's committee, consisting of R.
Rand, N. Macomber and A. T. Her
eim, served a most unusual and or
iginal lunch of doughnuts and cof
fee. The men were asked to bring
a dime and the ladies a critical at
titude, and they did. Really, while
the lunch adds a social touch it is
quite unnecessary, and does entail
a needless amount of work.
Mrs. Claude Myers picked some
beautiful tea roses this week from
the yard. They are white with pink
centers and were unaware that this
was January and not summer.
Mr. and Mrs. Howell and daugh
ter are here from White Salmon for
a visit at the Rands home.
Mrs. F. H. Denson spent a few
days in La Grande this week.
Mrs. A. A. Agee has gone to Pen
dleton for a few weeks to care for
Mrs. Trumen Messenger. The Mes
sengers have a 9 pound boy who ar
rived Tuesday, Jan. 27th.
Mrs. John Jenkins and Mrs. A.
Sundstand left Sunday for Portland
for a time, the former to undergo
a thorough physical examination
while there. Mrs. Jenkins has not
been well for several years.
Saturday, January 24, was the fif
ty-third wedding anniversary of Mr.
and Mrs. C. G. Blayden.
Preceding the entertainment Sat
urday night L. V. Root, who was
president of the fair board last year,
asked for nominations for a direct
or to succeed Mrs. Nick Faler whose
term expired. She was unanimous
ly reelected for another term. The
fair board consists of L. V. Root, In
gaard Skoubo and Mrs. Faler. We
have not heard whether Irrigon has
elected a new director or not
One of the most interesting items
of the week is the anonuncement of
the arrival of an 8-pound son Mon

John Brice is here for a time. He

Adolf Skoubo, who now claims the
honor of being the oldest original
settler in the East End, was much
surprised and greatly pleased to re
ceive a copy of one of the largest
daily papers from Denmark which
carried his picture, his biography
and a column featuring him as one
of the pioneers in Danish library re
form. When Mr. Skoubo first came
to this country in 1912 he was sur
prised at the size and number of li
braries here, but what struck him
more than anything else was the
fact that all libraries carried pro
fessional books and books on art
and science. As there were at that
time but few public libraries in
Denmark except in the largest cit
ies, he wrote an article to a paper
there about conditions here and pro
pounded the idea of starting small
agricultural libraries in the differ
ent farming communities so that
the small farmers, farm hands and
others who could not get time nor
afford to go to agricultural schools
could borrow books and get at least
the fundamentals in agricultural
science. Mr. Skoubo does not know
whether the article was printed at
the time, but IS years after the idea
is materializing, the paper dug up
the article, printed it and proclaim
ed Mr. Skoubo one of the pioneers
of the idea.

The new Ford has more than
twenty hall and roller hearings
EVIDENCE of the high quality built into the new Ford
is the extensive use of hall and roller bearings. There
are more than twenty in all an unusually large num
ber. Each bearing is adequate in size and carefully
selected for the work it has to do.
At some points in the Ford chassis you will find ball
bearings. At others, roller bearings are used regardless
of their higher cost. The deciding factor is the per
formance of the car.
The extensive use of ball and roller bearings in the
new Ford insures smoother operation, saves gasoline,
increases speed and power, gives quicker pick-up, de
creases noise, and gives greater reliability and longer life
to vital moving parts.
Other outstanding features that make the new Ford
a value far above the price are the Triplex shatter-proof
glass windshield, silent, fully enclosed four-wheel brakes,
four Houdaille doubleicting hydraulic shock absorb
ers, aluminum pistons, chrome silicon alloy valves,
three-quarter floating rear axle, Rustless Steel, the ex
tensive use of fine' steel forgings, and unusual accuracy

TOWN TEAM WINS.
Neil Shuirman was the backbone
of the Heppner offensive with 18
points, and a big factor in the local
town team defeating a combined
Umatilla and Hermiston team on
the Umatilla floor Thursday eve
ning. Final score 27-9. The game
was played under a handicap by
the north Umatilla lads as they
"took on" the Heppner team after
playing a hotly fought battle be
tween themselves. Heppner sup
posedly had a game scheduled at
Hermiston, but through a misun
derstanding Hermiston went to
Umatilla instead, and the Heppner
boys followed them up. Other mem
bers of the Heppner squad were Bob
Corrall. Ray Ferguson, Bus Neel,
