bers of the club at the Monday noon

sary to determine just what tax
eating functions of government are
necessary and what are unneces
sary," Mr. Notson said, "before cut
ting any of them out And this in
volves the question of how much of
the governmental luxuries we now
enjoy we would be willing to do
The speaker gave a clear and con
cise explanation of the origin of
taxes and the tariff and commented
on the vast increase in the past
eighty years in the per capita cost
of government He stated that
many of the old accepted ideas of
taxation have gone into the discard
and that 'the tax situation is worthy
the serious consideration of every-
"It was at one time thought,
and all books on political economy
taught, that the ultimate consumer
paid the taxes as represented by
the tariff on imported articles.
However." Mr. Notson said, "It Is
clearly demonstrable that it is not
the ultimate consumer wno pays,
but the producer of basic commod
ities or raw materials." He gave
a clear definition of the three kinds
of tariffs, protective, for revenue
only, and competitive, but did not
enter into the political signincance

received bv the club members.

PENDLETON, 2 TO 0
First Shut-out of Season Recorded;
Woodward Allows But Two
Hits, Gemmell Four.
Bobby Woodward and company
sold out the Pendleton Buckaroos,
lock, stock and barrell, at Rodeo
field Sunday afternoon, ringing up
the first shut-out for the locals this
season. When the last ticker had
tocked the tally sheet read 2-0.
It was a grand day for Bobby,
with a record of 17 assists, IS ol
which were strikeouts. He allowed
but a meager two hits, while behind
him his teamates played errorless
ball which allowed only five Pen
dleton men to reach first base and
only one to get as far as second.
There were from one to three assists
on every put out made by the locals
except one, a fly ball taken by Cum
mlngs in center field.
Ronnie Gemmell, pitcher for the
Helix champions In the Blue Moun
tain league, also had a large day on
the mound for Pendleton. He struck
out fourteen batsmen and allowed
but four hits. Four bobbles by his
teammates were partly responsible
for Heppner scoring.
Homer Hayes scored the first run
for Heppner in the third inning. He
walked as first man up, held first
as Cummings filed out to third and
Thomson struck out took second as
Gentry walked, and scored on Rob
ertson's hit. Bucknum fanned to
end the rally. Bucknum made the
second score in the sixth inning.
With one away, he hit safely and
went second on a wild throw in
from centerfleld, where he was con
fined as Woodward fanned and
Crawford walked, then scored on
Fereuson's hit. Crawford was
nabbed at home attempting to score
on the play for the third out.
Beautiful support for Woodward
was largely responsible for only
three batsmen facing him in any
inning except the fourth. In the
fifth, a doubtful decision kept Hepp
ner from a double play, Ferguson
to Gentry to Thomson, which would
have closed the inning. Left forced
Masters at second and was given a
safety to first In an attempted
steal shortly after, a beautiful peg
by Robertson cut him off for the
third out, and only three batsmen
were recorded. Again in the sev
enth, with the first two men put
out, Ehler singled, but as he stepped
away from the bag at first Robert
son kept Wm from l(8 return by
a quick peg to Thomson, and In the
little game of three-handed dare
base that ensued he was finally run
down by Ferguson for the put out
Next Sunday the Heppner gang
journeys to Pendleton to play off
the rubber as a result of last bun
day's game, Pendleton having taken
the first game from Heppner at
Ukiah on the Fourth, 7-6. Another
hotly contested game is anticipated.
