The story was written by Booth
Tarkington and Leon Janney takes
the leading role. The story in brief
Is that of a middle-aged father who
falls to be lenient with the pranks
of his young son until almost too
late to do so. The misunderstood
lad finally runs away from home
and then things begin to happen
somewhere in the region of dad's
heart, all of which mother aids in
ways which mothers know. But it
is the razzle-dazzle of boy life that
makes the play so real the freckle-
faced gang the circus the swim-
mln' hole the village bully the
tousled pup and all the rest.
The pageant to be given at the
Methodist church at 7:30 Thursday
evening is entitled, "In Old Judea."

is the pageant to be presented Wed
nesday evening at 7:30 at the Epis

Judge Sweek Gives Inspiring Mes
sage In Face of Depression;
Local Musicians Heard.
Words of commendation from
their former president, Calvin L.
Sweek, came to Heppner Lions
Monday to cheer them on their
way to further community better
ment work, following a discussion
of ways and means of lifting the
club from its difficulties arising
from the depression. There was
no thought of giving up the ship
expressed by the membership, but
the meeting was largely given over
to a discussion of facts facing the
club, which the members decided
to buckle up their belts to meet.
The meeting was held at I. O. O.
F. hall because of the fire of the
Tuesday previous which destroyed
the American Legion hall, former
meeting place.
Mr. Sweek, cricuit judge for the
sixth judicial district, was over
from Pendleton to preside over the
court which convened here Mon
day. He said he had kept in close
touch with the activities of the club
since moving to Pendleton, and was
pleased to note its many accom
plishments. He noted the attend
ance as being very favorable com
pared to that of other service clubs
over the district it had been his
privilege to attend. Enlightened
by his usual number of timely and
fitting stories, the short talk of the
former president warmed the
hearts of his old associates.
Much appreciated by those in at
tendance was the special enter
tainment feature, a local quartet
of stringed instrumentalists, James
T. Lumley, Leonard Gilliam, Frank
and Jesse Turner. Their offerings
were heartily encored. Guests in
cluded Jason Biddle of Rhea creek
and Ralph Jackson of Lexington.
Arrangements for the second
drive on wharf rats, in progress
this afternoon, were announced by

ed at the meeting give promise of
a lively and fruitful time at the
Pendleton convention, Barratt said.
The lamb campaign will hold a
prominent place on the program,
and more consideration will be giv
en local talent than heretofore
with many local sheepment slated
for talks on local problems.

The green-tinged surface of Mo
ther Earth' emerged from its icy
covering on the hills about Hepp
ner for the first time in nearly a
month this morning, as the cold
east wind, shifting to the south,
turned to a Chinook at an early
hour and rapidly melted the snow
and ice. Though prospects of the
often-desired white Christmas are
lessened by the resultant black ef
fect Nature this year could proba

able gift Hearts and bodies, chill
ed by the wintry blasts of the last
few weeks, have been warmed by
the chinook, adding to the season's
cheer. Stockmen, especially, who
have been forced to feed heavily,
will welcome such a Christmas gift.
But whatever Nature may have
to offer at Christmastime, prospects
are bright for a merry yuletide.
Morrow county people are prepar

the trees in place. The scout detail

bear evidence to Heppner's hospit

windows already show brightly dec

"The Home Town Mystery," to be
presented next Tuesday evening by
the school faculty at the gym-auditorium,
offers a double appeal.
With a well-selected cast taken
from the abundance of dramatic
talent contained in the faculty, it
not only assures an evening of ex
ceptional entertainment, but the
purpose for which it is being given,
that of aiding the unemployed,
should bring out one of the largest

price of 25 cents, the ticket sale in
charge of grade pupils has already

Because of the mysterious na
ture of the play, to divulge its plot
would be to rob the audience of a
great part of its enjoyment. It is
said that the antics of grandmother
would do justice to a young mas

pretive powers of a certain young
lady woud do honor to Sherlock
Holmes. Plenty of good wholesome
comedy enlivens the play through

E. R. Schaffer Breaks Knee Cap
and Suffers From Exposure
When Wagon Overturns.
Overturning of the hay wagon he
was driving on the Hynd brothers
Freezeout ranch Sunday, caused
the fracture of the left knee cap of
E. R. Schaffer and left him helpless
for half an hour exposed to the raw
cold until he was found, nearly fro
zen, Dy , , herder.
A phone call was sent to Paul His
ler, on an adjoining farm, and Mr.
Hisler brought the injured man to
town ror treatment, two hours hav
ing elapsed before he reached med
ical aid.
An x-ray picture revealed a hori
zontal fracture of the knee cap,
with a gap in the bone an inch
wide. The injury was very painful.
though after being treated and
dressed by the doctor, Mr. Schaffer
rested easier, and the pain had be
come less severe, hurting worse
whenever it was necessary to move
the injured leg. The injury Is of a
slow-healing type, his physician re
ported, and may require Mr. Schaf
fer to remain bedfast for several
weeks. He is at Heppner hospital.
Mr. Schaffer, son-in-law of Mr.
and Mrs. Jack Hynd of Cecil, is
foreman of the Hynd brothers
Freezeout ranch. He was putting
out hay for the sheep when the
wagon slipped on the steep moun
tainside and overturned. His first
thought was holding the horses,
and he had considerable difficulty
in doing this owing to his Injury,
which he found made it impossible
for him to move. He remained
thus, exposed to the cold, for half
an hour until the herder arrived
with the sheep to feed.
The knee cap was apparently
fractured from having struck a
rock. The horizontal fracture was
accounted for by the physician, by
the nature of the physcial struc
ture of the member. The pull of
the large muscle in the thigh of
the leg is quite tense when the leg
is bent and it is natural for a suf
ficient blow on the cap, when the
leg is thus bent to result in a cross
wise fracture.
In the operation performed the
knee cap was sewed back together
after the large accumulation of
matter had been removed. In the
healing process, It is necessary to
work the knee joint to keep it
from becoming stiff, and at the
same time prevent enough strain
being put on the cap to break
apart the stitches. This is the rea
son for the slow recovery.
