Manager Ide Cites Work
of State Commercial
Body to Lions Club.
COUNTY'S PART $200
Benefits Accruing to Entire State
Reason for Taxpayer Aid;
United Effort Needed.
W. G. Ide, manager of the Ore
gon State Chamber of Commerce,
told of the aims and accomplish
ments of that organization at the
Lions club Monday luncheon. Hav
ing heretofore stressed land settle
ment work and having received
large returns on every dollar ex
pended, the state chamber this year
under a new plan of organization
has launched upon an enlarged pro
gram of state development with the
extension of Oregon markets and
stimulation of the tourist crop as
its main objectives.
Mr. Ide was introduced by Al
Rankin, Morrow county director of
the state chamber. Morrow coun
ty's allotment of the $50,000 budget
to carry out the program this year
has been set at $200.
Realizing that Oregon at present
has little advantage to offer the
farm settler over his present situ
ation elsewhere, Mr. Ide said the
directors conceived the Idea of mar
ket expansion and added tourist
trade as the best means of improv
ing the agricultural situation, and
keeping faith with the many set
tlers who have already been
brought Into the state. Only by in
creasing the value of that which
we already have can the tax bur
den of the state be effectively light
ened, he said. He termed the tour
ist crop Oregon's major crop, bring
ing more money into the state than
any single agricultural crop.
Tourist Crop Profitable,
Cultivating of the tourist crop is
advantageous not only from the
immediate revenue received, but
also from the resulting investments
made here by tourists who are sold
on the state's possibilities after
first-hand investigation. New tax
able wealth is thereby created from
which the entire state benefits.
The market expansion program
comprehends opening up new mar
kets and the strengthening of pres
ent markets for Oregon products.
Mr. Ide told of interviewing one
California concern which handles a
large percentage of the butter sold
in California. They were giving
Idaho butter precedence over Ore
gon butter and buying very little
Oregon butter. Asked why they
did not buy more Oregon butter,
they said they would be glad to do
so if they knew where they could
get an adequate and constant sup
ply of prime 92 score butter. It is
by meeting such situations that the
state chamber hopes to improve the
market for Oregon products.
For two years the state chamber
has maintained an office at Los An
geles, Calif., which in the past serv
ed to direct settlers into the state.
At present this office is bending its
efforts toward direction of tourist
travel Into Oregon. Last year 60
per cent of the out of state cars in
Oregon came from California. The
total number of California cars rep
resented but 6 per cent of the total
registered cars in California. The
state chamber considers this still a
virgin territory for missionary work
and the best place to expend avail
able funds as more can be accom
plished for the money by concen
trating efforts in one place. The
Los Angeles office is strategically
located as a very large percentage
of eastern cars coming west head
for California, due to that state's
extensive advertising covering the
past thirty or forty years, and a
large part of the eastern cars In
California pass through Los An
geles. Many of these people are be
ing directed into Oregon by the
state chamber's office.
Counties Asked to Help.
To carry on this work, Mr. Ide
believes all efforts should be cen
tered under one head and that the
state chamber Is the logical agency
to use. Believing -that the work,
which benefits all the taxpayers,
should be partly supported by them,
county courts are being asked to
provide a sum In their budgets for
the purpose. Mr. Ide was of the
opinion that all money so contrib
uted should go for advertising, and
none of it to be used for overhead
W. T. Campbell, county judge,
and George Peck, commissioner,
were guests of the club to hear Mr.
Russell E. Pratt, secretary of the
Heppner Rod and Gun club, an
nounced the club's dinner to be
held that evening, and M. L. Case,

talk In which he commended the
efforts of the Lions lr) their work of
a commercial nature.

Deer Season Closes With
Last Minute Stampede
"Heppner was nearly devoid of
male population Sunday when men
of the city took advantage of the
last opportunity to hunt before the
close of the deer hunting season
that evening. The day was cold and
blustery, with considerable snow
falling in the timber, making hunt
ing difficult, and few kills were re
ported for the day.
The last few days of the season,
however, it la reported the bucks
had started to run, and over the
week end more deer were brought
to the city than at any other time
during the season. Among fortun
ate hunters reported this week
were J. O. Turner, Paul Marble,
Leslie Rasmussen, Jim Cowins,
Mark Merrill party, Chas. Vaughn,
Leonard Gilliam, Chas. Cox, Earl
Gilliam and Billy Cox.
The largest buck .of the season
weighed in at the Peoples Hard
ware company, In its big buck con
test, was the 250-pouhder killed by
Monroe Turner and which was giv
en to the Elks for their dinner last
Thursday evening. Mr. Turner re

PAYS LAST HALF TAXES.
. C. D. Ashbaugh of The Dalles,
manager, in this district for the Pa
cific Telephone and Telegraph com
pany, was in Heppner today and
paid the last half of the 1930 taxes
of the utility in Morrow county.
This payment amounted to $2,269.43
on the personal and real property
of the company in this county. Mr.
Ashbaugh states that the total am
ount of taxes paid by the telephone
company In the state of Oregon for
1930 is $987,832.83, of which approx
imately $820,000 was for real prop
erty taxes, or In excess of 10 per
cent of the gross revenue; between
10 and 11 cents of each dollar re
ceived going for taxes.

To stimulate attendance at the

similar line of business who will be

After drubbing Arlington 39-0 on
the local field last Thursday after
noon, the Heppner high football
squad might be expected to face
the game with the heavy Pendleton
high team with an air of overcon
fldence. Such is not the case, how
ever, declares Neil Shuirman, coach.
The Arlington game was not won
without a heavy cost to the team.
Orrin Furlong, fullback, pulled a
muscle in the first quarter of the
game and his loss to the team will
be keenly felt Saturday. The boys
also know that they played a rag
ged game of football against Arling
ton and have been working hard to
overcome their faults, realizing that
it will be necessary for them to give
everything they have if they , are
to make an impressive showing
against the Pendletonians.
Shuirman expects the team will
be in good shape when the open
ing whistle blows at 1:30. All the
men with the exception of Furlong,
will be in their places, and unless
something unforseen happens, all
should be in the best of condition.
They are going out there to fight
and fight hard, to win if possible.
The spirit of the school will be
behind the boys, to be evidenced by
a big pep rally Friday night The
game Is expected to draw the larg
est crowd of townspeople present
at any game this season.
Pendleton has a heavy team, av
eraging much heavier per man than
the locals. The only basis for com
parison of the teams at present are
the games played by each with
Athena, Pendleton beat Athena
23-6, and Heppner won from Athena
20-0. This would indicate nearly
even strength, though it is impossi
ble to "dope" a game on compara
tive scores alone.
Shuirman gives his tentative
starting lineup for Saturday as fol

Not to be Tolerated
Saturday is Hallowe'en. The time
of jack o' lanterns, ticktacks and
roving ghosts Is one of the most
pleasant occasions of the year when
properly observed, believes W. G.
McCarty, mayor, but one which
may be regretted if Innocent fun
is allowed to be carried to the point
of endangering life or disturbing
In his annual Hallowe'en procla
mation, Mayor McCarty says:
"While It Is fitting that Hallow
e'en be observed according to the
high Ideals of the day, there has
grown to be a common practice
among indiscriminate youth to
sicze upon the occasion, as a time
for perpetrating depradations which
are a menace to the public peace
and safety. It is to be lamented
that such is the case. And to dis
courage this practice to the great
est possible extent on Hallowe'en,
I hereby Invest every property hold
er of the city with the power of po
lice, and urge that this power be
used to make arrest of any Indi
vidual or individuals found In the
act of disturbing property, or do
ing anything that would endanger
life or property. May I again call
attention to the fact that it Is ex
tremely dangerous in this day of
the automobile to place obstructions
of any kind in the streets. To do
so may result In taking of human
life. No sane, thinking Individual
would countenance the perpetra
tion of such an act"

CITY IS DISTRICTED
Twelve Divisions Made for Purpose
of Gathering Money, Food and
Clothing for Winter Need.
A thorough canvas of the city will
be made next Thursday by the As

food and clothing with which to
meet the emergency situation which
may exist in the city this winter,
it was decided at a meeting of the
central committee and representa

Either a stipulated amount or a
monthly donation of money will be
asked from individuals, it was said.
Any usable clothing will be accept
able, and any food products.
For the purpose of solicitation

Mrs. Beamer also asked that in
dividuals wishing to do charity
work, get in touch with the central

of efforts. In some cases already
reported, it was found by the com

caused much additional work that
would have been needless had they

Duck Season Open From
November 16 to Dec. 16
Considerable discussion as to the
time for shooting ducks has been
reported to the Gazette Times,
many people seeming to have failed
to learn of the restricted season
this year brought about by presi
dential proclamation. More than
a month ago President Hoover pro
claimed a 30-day season on ducks
throughout the United States be
cause of a reported shortage In the
number of birds. The Oregon sea
son was set from November 16 to
December 16. It opens at noon on
November 16 and closes at sundown
on December 16.
One of the factors causing the
misunderstanding concerning the
hunting for migratory birds is the
fact that these birds are protected
by International treaties.
The bag limit is the same as last
year, which is 15 ducks and four
geese a day, with a maximum pos
session of 30 ducks and eight geese.

Women In Nightdress
Chase Bear up Mountain
Love for the hunt exists not alone
in the breast of man. There are
some ladies in Morrow county who,
whether or not directly descended
from the Amazons, would do credit
to the name. At least some Ama-
zonic traits must be possessed by
women who, in nightdress and
stockingfooted, would chase a bear
up a steep mountainside before
Authenticity for a story leading
to such deductions is laid at the
door of Bert Mason, leading lone
merchant, who in company with
Mr. and Mrs. M. E. Cotter and Mr.
and Mrs. Walter Corley, also of
lone, hunted in the vicinity of the
old Groshen cabin last week. Mr.
Mason's story runs something like
Early one morning, after the men
had left camp and the ladie3 had
remained in bed, Mrs. Corley arose,
and jokingly shouted at Mrs. Cot
ter, "There's a bear in camp."
Whereupon Mrs. Cotter lifted the
flap of the tent and did spy a bear
beside a log nearby, nosing about
some gopher holes. Imagine Mrs.
Corley's consternation when Mrs.
Cotter told her to get the gun
quick, "There is a bear in camp."
By the time both ladies had made
up their minds to the fact that
there was a bear in camp and
emerged with the firearm, the bear
was shagging off up the mountain
side. Apparently, forgetting the na
ture of their raiment, and bent up
on killing the bear, the ladles fol
lowed In pursuit clear to the moun
tain top,. clad in nightdress and
stockingfooted, only to have the
bear escape them.

game and fish commission, alluding
to it only by asserting that It is the
purpose of the plan to build up the
wild life in all parts of the state on
the most equitable basis possible.

the needs of the different sections
of the state, he said.
The supervisor regretted the ap

many people of the active work of

game situation and the part played
by the wardens, there would be no
such resentment He pictured ev

A very unusual picture, borrowed
from a featured movie, showed a
mongoose stalk and kill a big cob
ra, dreaded snake of India. The
mongoose, slightly larger than a
big gray squirrel and resembling It
in appearance, was said to be the
quickest animal on earth. It kills
the giant cobra for pleasure, was

A reel of technicolor film taken
by Mr. Bracher in the Hawaiian is

fusion of deeply colored flowers
found there, various other types of
vegetation and physical phenomena
