The Rodeo spirit has truly been
In the air in Heppner for the last

In daily since Sunday have been
given opportunity for a warm up
out at the grounds each afternoon,
and rumors are circulating of some
great rides. Yakima Kid, who
placed third in the Northwest
bucking contest at the Pendleton
Round-Up, Is among the top-hands
who have been taking a fling, and
it's said he looks like a champion.
But there's many a slip, 'mong
cowhands and bucking broncs, and
he who looks like a champ one min
ute, may be digging gravel from
his molars the next And there were
more than twenty aspiring cham
pions In the lists at an early hou
yesterday, any one of whom might
get a break and make the Kid look
That will all be revealed by sun
Anyway, at 1:30 this afternoon
the big thing's off, to the music of
the 30-piece Heppner all-school
band, and under the supervision of
Queen Margaret (Becket) and her
attendants, the Misses Evelyn

Manager Sigsbee of the Star thea

helping entertain the throng also,
by providing a complete change of
program each day and starting
early and running late. Featured
ar eWestern thrillers, appropriate
to the occasion.
And then there's the big parade
Saturday, promised to be the larg
est and best thing of its kind ever
witnessed In the county.
Something everyone wants to
keep in mind, however, Is the fact
that there's no charge for the
grandstand this year and no re
served seats. First there will be
served first, and it may be neces
sary to get around early for a good
Boat though any seat In the big
covered grandstand affords a fine
view of the show.
The show Itself is rounding up In
much the best shape It ever has,
declared veteran Rodeo prexy, C.
W. McNamcr, who has had charge
of its destinies since the show's in
"There's certainly a great lot of
horses, headed by Madam Queen
who was crowned with glory at
Pendleton last week-end. And Pen
dleton has sent over a bunch of the
Round-Up's topnotchers, including
High Tower, Lookout, Sky High,
Up-Slde-Dwn, What-a-Man, Lazy
Ike and others. Then Black Dia-
mond, Colored Boy, Al Smith, Super
Six and a bunch of other local
horses are on the Job. Guess they're
a tough enough lot to give the boys
That's about the way "Mac" put
It, and he ought to know. There's
the fastest bunch of fast running
horses ever to be tied in the lot,
too, he said, assuring some great

strings. Kenneth Depew, familiar
to Rodeo crowds of the past, is here
with a string. Then there's the Ad
Moore string, two strings brought
In by Frank Swaggart, and one by
Yakima Pete, Indian trackmaster.
The boys are all going to have a
fair shake, too, Mac said. Judges
of arena events will be Sterling

men of veteran judging experience,

ROAD WORK GIVEN
Unemployment Relief Again to be
Offered in Highway Work, Said;
Spray Route Progressing,
Lions devoted much of the time
at their Monday luncheon to catch
ing up on the behavior of several
of the members, assessing fines on
members delinquent from the pic
nic the week previous, and in dis
cussing several matters of interest.
Foremost in the minds of all was
the progress of plans for the Rodeo,
and the report that everything was
being well taken care of was gladly
received, though no great amount
of enthusiasm was evinced when
the chairman of the float commit
tee asked for volunteers to report
at 7 o'clock Saturday morning to
finish getting the club float in read
iness for the big parade.
Dr. A. D. McMurdo, who returned
recently from a motor trip that
took himself and family into Old
Mexico, furnished the material for
some entertainment when he pre
sented S. E. Notson, district at
torney, with a souvenir that, he de
clared, had been made especially
for district attorneys. Refusing to
be a party to what he suspected
might be an unlawful proceeding,
Mr. Notson would not open the
package, and it was left in the
hands of S. P. Devin, city marshal,
to divulge the contents a bottle of
what was represented to be illicit
Mr. Notson, who in company with
W. T. Campbell, county Judge, and
Frank Gilliam, visited Monument
last week, reported returning over
the Heppner-Spray road, declaring
that the new grade being construct
ed is evidence that the government
is intending to' construct a real
highway over the route. A recent
interview with J. H. Scott, state
market engineer, revealed, he said,
that the Heppner-Spray road would
undoubtedly be put on the new
state secondary highway map, mak
ing It eligible for state funds ap
propriated for this system. -
C. W. Smith, a member of the
Morrow county unemployment
committee appointed by Governor
Meier, reported that the local com
mittee was preparing blanks for
the registration of persons who ex
pected to be out of employment
this winter. It is expected that work

FINE STRAWBERRIES SHOWN,
This office was presented with a
couple of boxes of strawberries on
Monday by Mrs. N. M. Johnson of
Dry Fork. The berries are the ever
bearing variety, the Mastodon, and
are of wonderful size and flavor.
Just 18 of the berries filled one box,
and this may be seen In the display
window, along with other Morrow
county products, at the store of Hl
att & Dix. Mrs. Johnson reports
that she has gathered in gallons of
the fruit since the bearing season
began July 1st, the average being
a gallon per day, and while the
vines are not producing so abun
dantly now, they will continue to
bear until frost comes In the fall.
There Is a very fine garden tract on
the Johnson place, and having plen
ty of water for Irrigation, excellent
vegetables and small fruits are
raised. Mrs. Johnson reports that
her garden is not the only crop
harvested, as she has killed some
eight or a dozen rattlers on the
place this Beason, and has encoun
tored the reptiles on numerous oc
caslons when picking berries and

Men who are farming the Ruby
place were staying on an adjacent
farm, and knew nothing of the Are

tents were a glowing heap. They
were aroused from a sound sleep by
Clarence Bauman, who took a load

More Stress to be Laid on
Livestock With New
CLUB SHOW LATER
Boys and Girls to Exhibit at Hepp
ner In October, With Wool
and Grain Show.
Next week end the focus of public
attention in Morrow county will be
centered on the North Morrow
County fair at Boardman, Friday
and Saturday, Sept 11 and 12.
Preparations for the event have
been well taken care of by the offi
cers and directors, and one of the
most successful fairs in North End
history is anticipated.
All Morrow county has been in
vited to enter exhibits and to visit
the show, with stress on the invita
tion to visit on Saturday when ex
hibits will have been judged and
the ribbons awarded. Those hav
ing exhibits to enter should mail
them to Leo Root, president of the
North Morrow County fair associa
tion, Boardman. Premium lists are
available at the office of the county
agent in Heppner.
More attention has been given
to livestock this year, with a new
and complete list of premiums for
registered Guernsey, Jersey and
Holstein cows, grade cows, and all
classes of pigs and sheep. This has
been done by the board to fill a
need of the community since it has
been demonstrated that permanent
agriculture on the project in the
future will be centered around the
dairy program. To provide for the
new class, premium money was re
duced for women's work. Added
also was a new art division, includ
ing prizes for best picture, best bas
ketry and best cabinet work.
The club work division was elim
inated this year as a 4-H club fair
has been announced for the entire
county to be held in Heppner in
October in connection with the
Morrow County Wool and Grain
show. The date has not been de
finitely set but it will probably be
held the next day following the
county teachers' institute. It was
decided to hold the club fair in
Heppner since the majority of club
members now reside in the south
end of the county and they would
be put to an inconvenience by be
ing forced to exhibit in the north
Wool-Grain Show Later.
The wool and grain show was
postponed to the later date, Instead
of, being held in connection with
the Rodeo, because It was felt it
would fit in more properly with the
club exhibition. Exhibits for the
wool and grain show have already
been sent in, and assurance is giv
en that one of the largest displays
ever will be made.
Entertainment features at the
North Morrow County fair next
week will Include the Irrigon 4-H
club band, sports with cash prizes
during the afternoon Friday begin
ning at 2 p. m., a moving picture
show Friday evening, and a big
dance Saturday evening.

1930 RODEO QUEEN
MARRIED AT I0NE
Everson House Burnd From Coal
Oil Stove; News of the Week
Given by Correspondent
JENNIE E. McMURRAY.
Miss Arleta Farrens and Homer
J. Lyons were married Thursday,
August 26, in Portland. The bride
is the eldest daughter of Mrs. Helen
Farrens and grew to womanhood
in this part of the state. She took
a part of her high school course in
the lone school, but completed her
work in Portland, graduating from
Washington high school in the class
of '29. Last year Mrs. Lyons was
queen of the Heppner Rodeo. Mr.
Lyons is the son of Mrs. Julia Ly
ons of Salem. He is a graduate of
the Salem high school and has had
two years at Oregon State college.
He is a member of Phi Delta Theta
fraternity and in both high school
and college was prominent in ath
letics. Mr. Lyons has employment
with the Standard Oil company at
Salem at which place the young
couple will make their home.
Ordie Farrens went to Portland
last week to attend the wedding of
his sister. We understand that he
expects to remain in the city.
The Frank Everson home on the
ranch three miles from lone was
burned to the ground Monday
morning. Mrs. Everson was alone
at the home when the fire started
from a kerosene stove. , She was
able to save articles valued at about
fifty dollars. This is the third time
the Eversons have lost their home
by fire in a little over two years, the
first fire being in February, 1929.
There was some insurance.
A party of neighbors and friends
gathered at the John Williams
ranch home Sunday to spend a
pleasant hour in conversation, and
to wish Mr. and Mrs. Williams well,
as they leave our county to make
their home in Portland. They ex
pect to leave here Thursday. Mr.
Williams has made his home on the
ranch for forty-eight years, and it
is needless to say that it is hard to
break the old ties. Delicious
home made ice cream and cake
were served to the guests who were
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Engelman, Mr.
and Mrs. Ed Moore, Mrs. Wrex

Former Morrow County Boy Was
Ail-American Tackle In 1916;
Won Coast Pennant
San Diego, Calif., Sept 1. With
only a few days remaining before
his San Diego Marines tackle the
strong Santa Barbara (Calif.) Ath
letic club eleven, in their initial
football tiff of the season, Head
Coach Johnny Beckett former Ore
gon university flash and uncle of
Rodeo's Queen Margaret is busily
engaged in whipping his hefty grid
men into shape for the fracas.
Captain Beckett was born in
Eight Mile, Morrow county, Oregon,
and is well known in Oregon foot
ball circles. He captained the
Washington high :hool football
team of Portland, when that team
played Oak Park high school of
Chicago for the national football
title back in 1911, after winning
the championship of the northwest
that same year.
After four yeare at Oregon uni
versity he was selected as an all-
American tackle in 1916. Under
Hugo Bezdek he developed into one
of the finest linemen in the coun
try. He captained .the Green and
Yellow in 1916, when they had one
of the strongest teams in their his
The Oregon flash enlisted in the
Marines in May, 1917, and in the
fall of that year he captained and
coached a team which was com
posed of enlisted men who were
then stationed at Mare Island,
Calif. This grid aggregation an
nexed the Pacific Coast champion
ship that year. As a coach and
player in the Marine corps he has
had phenomenal success. He was
assistant coach at the U. S. Naval
academy in 1926-27-28.
With the inauguration of the new
Marine corps football policy which
calls for three major grid elevens
instead of one, Coach Beckett will
have an excellent opportunity to
bring the West Coast Marines back
in the football limelight To make
this possible, all players who last
year graced the All-Marine eleven
have been sent to three bases in
the Marine corps, Parris Island ,S.
C, Quantico, Va., and this post
Prominent among these players
is Clyde M. Poppleman who was
one of the most valuable players
on the All-Marine squad last year.
He will be a valuable asset to the
local backfleld as his open field run
ning was a feature of the All-Marine's
season. And Charley "Gab
by" Glick, a team mate of Popple
man and one of the finest ends to
ever don a scarlet and gold uniform
is on hand. Sports writers in the
East last year selected "Gabby's"
type of playing as the best they
had seen wherever he played. He
is also one of the fastest runners in
the Marine corps and has won
many medals for his prowess at
Many other excellent athletes are
on hand to help Coach Beckett's
team turn in a successful season.
And if Dame Fortune can be
coaxed to smile just a little, the
former Oregon star will develop
another of those sensational grid
teams that have always given their
opponents a run for their money.
Roy Campbell, Injured
In Wreck, Thanks Fate
Roy Campbell is a believer in
Fate. His children, who had been
riding the load each day as he
hauled wheat into Lexington from
his Clarks canyon farm, preferred
to stay at home Friday. And on
this trip something went wrong
with the steering gear of the truck,
causing it to turn over a six-loot
embankment and spilling the load.
The whole load went over the cab,
but fortunately It did not break in
and Mr. Campbell escaped with
minor, though painful injuries.
Fourteen stitches were required to
close the wounds in his torn lips.
His right thumb was dislocated,
and he received a deep gash In one
leg. But he was thankful the chil
dren weren't on the load.
The accident occurred near the
Frank Munkers plHce in Clarks
canyon, and Mr. Campbell was
brought to Heppner by Mr. Mun
kers for treatment, alter tne in
jured man had walked the distance
of about a mile to the Munkers

more than $100, says Mr. Smith,
and it is assured that competition

Heppner will have floats in readi
ness, besides a number of business
houses. Elaborate work has been
done on many of these, assuring
the finest array of floats ever seen
in the city.
Rodeo stock and performers will
take part, too. But the committee
doesn't want others who have
horses to be discouraged on this
account They want everyone with '
a horse or anything else to show
