Court and Committee to
Work for Reallotment
of Secondary Funds.
Former Action of Court Explained
And Facts Given on Importance
Of Heppner-Spray Route.
" That a unanimity of opinion as
to the economic importance of the
Heppner-Spray road exists between
the Morrow county court and the
people' of the county represented
yesterday In a delegation that
waited upon the court in the inter
ests of that road was brought out
in the discussion, which resulted in
the selection of a committee of four
to work with the court in deter
mining the best method of proce
dure to get the Heppner-Spray road
completed at the earliest possible
date. The committee consists of
Vawtcr Crawford, L. Van Marter,
M. L. Case and W. W. Smead.
In their argument before the
court the delegation, composed of
representatives of, the majority of
Heppner business houses and rep
resentatives from lone and Lexing
ton, cited facts as to why the HeppP
ner-Spray road is the most import
ant uncompleted secondary road in
the county, and maintained that it
was not to the best Interests of this
road and of the county to have
Morrow county's secondary road
money for the next three years ap
plied on the Heppner-Condon road
as tentatively agreed upon by the
court with the state highway com
mission at Arlington last week.
Court Gives Stand.
All members of the court assert
ed that they were agreed upon the
importance of the Heppner-Spray
road. Their action at Arlington was
based upon the fact that In their
discussion of what they should do
when they met the commission at
Arlington, they could not arrive at
an agreement on the Heppner
Spray; road that It appeared to be
too big a job for them to handle
alone and they finally agreed to
have this year's money put on the
Condon road. When they made this
request of the highway commission
and the commission asked for a
three-year tie-up in order to assure
the completion of the project, Mr.
Bleakman would not accede, but
Mr. Campbell and Mr. Peck deemed
the commission to be within their
rights in making the request, and
they did agree. These facts were
brought out at the court meeting
and in an interview with Mr. Peck
last evening, and have been sub
stantiated by all members of the
Mr. Peck and Mr. Bleakman
agreed to abide by the decision of
the committee as to what was best
to ask .for on the Heppner-Spray
road, while Mr. Campbell said he
would abide by the former agree
ment unless assistance could be as
sured in completing the Heppner
Spray road south of Hardman.
Rock Creek Gap Hitch.
Members of the delegation con
tended that finishing of the road
from Heppner to Hardman, which
would require two years' expendi
ture of the county's secondary road
money, would hasten the comple
tion of the road. Besides the un
completed portion between Heppner
and Hardman, there remains a 6.7
mile stretch between Hardman and
Chapln creek, along Rock creek.
Some of the members of the dele
gation were In favor of signing up
an agreement to Include this
stretch also, if necessary. The cost
of this niece of construction would
be about $60,000, and In view of
Morrow county's already large ex
penditure on the road, and its tie-
ui with the forest road and other
state roads, members of the court
and the delegation were agreed that
the county was entitled to assist
ance on this gap. Members of the
delegation, however, expressed
themselves as having confidence
that the state and federal people
would do what was right If Morrow
county showed its good faith by
building to Hardman.
The court and citizens' committee
are preparing to present their re
quest to the state highway commis
sion at its meeting in Portland
June 9. To substantiate the court
In Its new request In the face of the
former agreement the committee
has prepared petitions for circula
tion among the people of the coun
ty by means of which they hope to
show that the weight of sentiment
In the county Is In favor of the
Heppner-Spray road.
Merit of Spray Road Cited.
As documentary evidence of one
of the reasons why completion of
the Heppner-Spray road is import
ant, the delegation showed the
court a letter from a reputable lum
bering concern In which It was stat
ed that this concern would put a
mill adjacent to the Heppner-Spray
road as soon as It Is completed. It
was shown that so far not one usr
faced highway has been built into
' the timber of the county, one of
the county's largest resources, and
that the Heppner-'Spray road would
. tap the best belt of this timber.
The cross-state tie-up of the road,
E. Notoon Reports Result of
Portland Conference; Chau
tauqua Discussed.
Seeking of federal forest road
funds for unemployment relief was
the object of a conference of a lo
cal delegation with W. H. Lynch,
chief of the bureau of public roads,
at Portland Saturday, according to
the report given the Lions club
Monday by S. E. Notson, spokes
man of the delegation which includ
ed O. A. Bleakman, Jasper Craw
ford and R. B. Ferguson. That no
promise of federal aid could be giv
en, he said, was learned from Mr.
Lynch, who stated the amount of
federal funds available would de
pend entirely on appropriations au
thorized by congress. If one appro
priation calling for some seven
million dollars additional forest
money passes, the west will get a
goodly share, he said, and Morrow
county would be guien consideration.
Mr. Notson said the trip was
made because of a recent wire re
ceived by W. T. Campbell, county
judge, from Senator Steiwer in
which the senator wished to know
whether Morrow county would be
able to cope with Its unemployment
situation from local sources.
Miss Coleman, Chautauqua rep
resentative and sister of Miss Lethe
Coleman, lecturer to appear at the
Chautauqua, gave the Lions an in
sight Into the program to appear
under the big tent, stressing their
appropriateness as a means of dis
pelling the gloom of depression.
Al Rankin was complimented on
his bull pup having won another
blue ribbon at the kennel show held
at Oregon City the end of the week.
It was announced that election of
officers would be held at the next
meeting, with the program left in
the hands of Dr. A. D, McMurdo
and Jasper Crawford.
The club voted to make its re
turn visitation to the Pendleton
Lions club next Thursday evening,
June 9, with ten members signify
ing their intention of attending.

Ralph Mason Burned
By Gas Tank Explosion
Details of the manner In which
Ralph Mason was fatally burned at
the farm home south of lone, lack
ing in the Gazette Times story last
week, were learneif from his father,
Frank Mason, this week.
Ralph and Oliver Kincaid were
at work in the blacksmith shop
making bolts with which to repair
some of the farm machinery. They
had started wofk early Friday
morning, Kincaid welding the
heads on the bolts and Ralph
threading them. About 9 o'clock,
as Kincaid was welding the head
on the last bolt and they were about
to finish their work, apparently a
spark from the furnace went into
the funnel of the gasoline can
about six feet distant from the
forge, and It exploded, blowing out
the top and spilling the gasoline in
the direction of young Mason. An
other explosion followed immediate
ly, filling the shop with flames.
Ralph made a dive througn a
hole where two boards were off the
wall Into the granary adjoining,
Kincaid seeing him go through but
did not then know that the boy was
afire. Kincaid himself attempted
to fight the fire for a moment, then
as the flames burst about his own
head he rushed out into the open
to extinguish them. It was then
that he heard Ralph moaning in
the granary, and he made for the
granary door, it being necessary to
force some machinery aside befor
he could open It. When he at last
got In he saw Ralph lying in the
corner enveloped in three feet of
He Immediately threw sacks
about Ralph and put out the fire,
being assisted by Mrs. Kincaid who
rushed from the house with a
bucket of water when she discov
ered the fire. Ralph, still conscious,
was asked if he was badly hurt, and
he answered, "I am done for." He
was rushed to Heppner to the hos
pital and first Investigation of the
burns, mostly on the boy's back,
revealed that they were so deep as
to leave but little hope of saving
his life. He died that evening.
The burns were so deep that the
nerves had apparently been dead
ened, as Ralph did not give signs
of being In severe pain, Mr. Mason
Mr. Mason was in lone at the
time, and when he was notified of
the disaster, he at first thought
Ralph had been working under the
car, as he knew it to have a leaky
gas tank, and he did not learn the
particulars until later. He said he
had warned the boys against leav
ing the gasoline tank in the shop,
Because of the opening of Chau
tauqua this evening, the Heppner
library will be open only between
the hours of 7:00 to 8:00 p, m,
J. A. Lehrer, sheepbuyer, Injured
in an automobile accident last week
Is reported to be making progress
at Heppner hospital.
Besides tapping the best merchantable timber
belt in Morrow county, providing a much-sought-for
outlet for livestock and other products of a large
section of Grant county, and providing the Hard
man section with a serviceable market road, finish
ing of the Heppner-Spray road means the opening
of a cross-state route for traffic to or from points
in Eastern Oregon, eastern Washington, Idaho or
eastward and California. A half million dollars
will have been expended on the route by the Bu
reau of Public Roads through the forest in Wheeler
and Morrow counties by the end of this year. Mor
row county has already invested $300,000 in the
road. All that remains to be constructed after the
Bureau of Public Roads completes its work this
year to complete a surfaced road all the way from
Heppner to the John Day highway at Spray is a
12-mile sector between Rhea creek (about 12 miles
amith nf Hennner) to Chanin creek (6.7 miles south
of Hardman). Morrow county spent $30,000 last year on a grade up McKinney creek on tne uncompieyeu
section between Heppner and Hardman to the foot of Hardman hill, a grade about two miles long which
Morrow county several years ago constructed and surfaced with talis rock.
This is the road on which the Morrow county court has been asked to have its state secondary road
money applied to finish the road between Heppner and Hardman, and for which petitions are being cir
culated among Morrow county people In order thai the matter of reapplication of Morrow county s sec
ndary road money may be taken up with the state hi ghway commission at its meeting in Portland July .

THE lifeless form of a yellow
breasted feathered friend lies on
the editor's desk. It's song will be
heard no more to cheer the morn
ing's wakening hours. Another
friend of the song bird brought the
little lifeless form to the editor's
desk. She said the tragedy told of
a thoughtless boy and his air rifle.
There Is a law against boys shoot
ing air rifles within the city limits,
and were the culprit known - he
might be punished. Eut that would
not teach the boy to love song birds
and to shoot them no more. That
boy should listen to the beautiful
note3 of the song bird in the morn
ing; learn the Identity of their mak
er; see hiin chirp merrily as he
skips from tree to bush, and learn
that in that feathered breast there
Is naught of offense to mankind,
naught but happiness. Then would
he, too, be a friend of the song bird
and want to let the song bird live.

Paucity of Hits, Double Plays,
Feature 8-1 Fray; Locals to
Play at Fossil Next
Heppner's ball tossers took the
short end of one of the snappiest
and fastest games played In the
Wheatland league this season at
Condon Sunday, losing by a 2-1
score. The pitching performance
of Ashenlelter for Condon and
Woodward for Heppner featured
the play, the former allowing but
two hits and striking out 12 bats
men, and the latter giving out only
four hits and striking out five. All
tallies were made on scratch plays,
with no earned runs.
On two ocasions snappy double
plays by Heppner helped to end
Condon rallies. In the fourth with
one away,- Ashenfelter singled and
took first, and A. Hollen, who fol
lowed, laid down a grounder to
Woodward who made a nice throw
to R. Gentry at second to catch
Ashenfelter, and Gentry In turn
pegged to Hayes at first to nab
Hollen. Again in the seventh Roy
Gentry took a hot line drive from
C. Hollen's bat and pegged to catch
A. Hollen off first base.
Condon scored one run the first
time up, when J. Baker singled and
advanced as Willimott.and Bennett
were thrown out at first on ground
ers taken by Roy and Harold Gen
try, and went home on a wild pitch
to Ashenfelter. Their next score
came in the seventh when Ashen
felter took first on Hayes' error,
and A. Hollen advanced him on a
grounder bobbled by Woodwardj.
Then followed the double play in
which R. Gentry took C. Hollen's
drive and threw A. Hollen out, hold
ing Ashenfelter on second. Ashen
felter then advanced on R. Baker's
single and scored on Hess's single,
J. Burns flying out to Turner in
midfleld for the third out.
Turner made Heppner's lone tally
in the eighth inning. He walked,
stole second, went third on H. Gen
try's single, and scored when Ash
enfelter mussed up Robertson's
grounder. Rohrer went out Willi
mott to A. Hollen; Crawford, Ash
enfelter to A. Hollen, and Carmich
ael fanned to end the rally.
The score sheet shows each team
had exactly the same number of
men at bat, and that inning by Inn
ing the same number of batsmen
were up for each team. The game
was played in an hour and a halt.
. Next Sunday Heppner plays at
Fossil and the following Sunday
will meet Blalock on the home lot.

Wheat Damage Reported
From Hail Storm Sunday
Damage to the growing wheat
crop In the Social Ridge section
the extent of which was not deter
mined, resulted from a hall storm
Sunday afternoon. The hall storm
extended along a strip of country
north and south of Willow creek
but the major damage Is reported
to have been on the land belonging
to W. T. Campbell on Social Ridge
and neighboring property.
The hall storm was accompanied
by a heavy rain generally over the
county, the good effects of which
are said to offset the damage done
by the hail.
