Council Vote $10 to Earthquake
Relief Fund; Annual Clean-up
Day Coming Soon.
The city's light bill will be 26 per
cent less, and a sizeable refund that
will take care of its payment for
several months to come was obtain
ed, as the result of a subsidiary
agreement Monday evening between
the city council and Pacific Power
and Light company. The saving
was made through Installation of
the new lighting system on Main
street recently..
Counoilmen, all of whom with
the mayor were present, smilingly
took the action, feeling that the
street lighting arrangement had
been bettered at a worthwhile sav
ing. All the council-men were In a hu
mor to make the vote unanimous
for a contribution of $10 to the
county's $40 Los Angeles earthquake
relief quota asked by the Red Cross.
The belief was expressed that Hepp
ner had been delinquent in recipro
cating the good response from Los
Angeles at the time of the Heppner
Arangements were talked for
staging the city's annual clean-up
day, and were left In the hands of
the mayor. While this event has
usually been held in April, It was
thought not out of line to hold it
later this year due to the lateness
of the season. The city will coop
erate as in the past by hauling
away free of charge rubbish in con
tainers placed at street curbs. May
or Anderson said he would make
proclamation of the event in the
near future.
A discussion was had of the meat
peddler situation, and further bun
lness consisted of payment of cur
rent expense bills.

Discussion of Socratic League Fro.
posal Honoring President's Day
Brings Favorable Response.
Heppner Lions Interested them
selves Monday nl obtaining further
help in completing the Heppnor
Spray road. J. O. Turner, district
state representative, read a com
munication from Walter M. Pierce,
U. S. representative in congress, in
which Mr. Pierce said he was fol
lowing a new lead that he hopad
would be fruitful of results in get
ting additional government money
for the road.
Appointed was a committee to
meet with the county court yester
day and to write Governor Meier
concerning the chances of getting
part of the county's share of the
$50,000,000 unemployment" relief
fund expended on this road. Named
on the committee were G. A. Bleak-
man, W. W. Smead, Al Rankin, S,
E. Notson and J. O. Turner.
S. E. Notson made a further plea
to hurry funds along to meet the
county's $40 Red Cross earthquake
rener quota. Strengthening the
plea was an assertion from Charles
Thomson that Los Angeles was the
first to send relief to Heppner at
tne time or the Heppner flood, and
that poor reciprocity had so far
been shown.
Well received in the singing of
cowooy songs were Robert Botts
and Donald Heliker, the lone
Wranglers, who obliged with sever
al numbers, Botts playing banjo
Earl W. Gordon led the main pro
gram discussion of the day anent a
six-year presidential term, tusiine
material disseminated by the So
cratic League of America for use
In the celebration of President's
Day, honored In conjunction with
May Day and Child Health Day.
Majority sentiment of the olub
was shown to be In sympathy with
the league's proposal that the pres
iential term be lengthened to six
years with the restriction that the
office could be held by one person
for a single term only. "
It was brought out that the pres
ent system puts a president under
too great obligation to his party,
the demands of which claim a large
proportion of the time spent in of
fice, and that he is busier serving
the interests of his party than in
serving the Interests of the nation.
Restriction to the serving of a
single term and lengthening of the
term, it was believed, would tend
to put party interests into the back
ground and give the president suf
ficient time to put into practice
such policies as he might have for
the welfare of the nation. It was
pointed out that any man to reach
the presidency must necessarily be
the highest type of citizen, and that
the present plan of tenure does not
give him a fair opportunity to do
the things which he might be able
to do for the best interests of all.

Harold Buhman and Andrew Bald
win Victims of Crash When
Car Skids Into Pole.
Harold W. Buhman and Andrew
Baldwin received painful, though
not serious injuries, when the Buh
man coupe crashed into a telephone
pole on Elder street near the school-
house about midnight Monday
night. George Mabee, in the seat
with itham, escaped with a slight
cut on his lip, while the car was
badly damaged and the pole was
severed from its base. Faulty car
lights and the slippery street, due
to the heavy rain of that day, were
believed to have been the cause.
The three men walked from the
wreck to the doctor's office where
their injuries were treated. Buh
man received a bad laceration of
the scalp and bled profusely, be
sides body bruises. Baldwin, whose
head was thrown through the wind
shield by the Impact, was cut deep
ly in his lower lip, and lost his two
upper front teeth when his mouth
was thrown against a jagged piece
of glass which remained In the low
er part of the windshield after his
head struck it. There is a chance
that he may lose some of his other
teeth, also, as a result.
Buhman, grade school principal,
remained in the hospital Tuesday
and returned to his room at Mrs.
Mattie Huston's on Tuesday eve
ning. Baldwin watfleileved of driv
ing his delivery wagon for a day
by Frank Egan, and Mabee assum
ed his teaching duties at the school
Tuesday as usual.
The men had been at the Bald
win home on K street playing ping
pong, and had got into the car to
drive down town. They were not
sure wnetner it was the car liirhfs
or street lights which went out just
as they reached the intersection
turning on to Elder street toward
the schoolhouse. but the whole town
was in darkness shortly after. The
poor visibility confused Bnhmnn
who was driving, and at the same
time matters were complicated by
the slippery condition of the trt
which caused the car to skid into
uie poie lust in front of Oia resi
dence occupied by the Wm. McRob
erts family.
While painful, the iniuriea
ed will not prove serious, the doc
tor oeueves, and the young man
making good recovery. They are
congratulating themselves that it
wasn't more serious, while receiv

From Happenings Here and Yon
Rain Brings Hope
A Patriotic Service
Presidential Powers
and other things of more or less
moment as seen by
The long-hoped for rains have
arrived In Morrow county, and a
new tease on life has been taken,
not only by the large amount of
spring-sown grain necessitated by
the general freeze-out last winter,
but by the people as well.
Rain is not the only cause of a
better feeling generally. Reports
that eastern Oregon wool is being
bought at as high as 17 cents a
pound in some instances double
the amount received a year ago
has a heartening effect, with shear
ing just getting under way in this
county. Accompanied by a streng
thening of the lamb market, there
is more reason for hopefulness.
Grain prices, too, remain firm at
the highest level in two years. Con
trading has been reported in neigh
bor counties at 50 cents a bushel,
With rains sufficient to boost the
good start of spring grain, i
heart of wheat farmers has started
to throb once more.
It started to rain last week. In
Heppner the rain descended for 24
hours last Friday and Saturday a
steady, soaking shower. It was not
general over the north end. But
there have been intermittent show
ers since, covering the county quite
well; and no matter how bright and
sunshiny the morning In Heppner,
the common remark now is, "We're
going to get some more today.
it's too bad that "what Is one
person's gain is another person's
loss" must hold true in this in
stance. Some sheepmen of the But
ter creek country lost freshly shorn
sheep because of the rain. Their
loss is regretted by friends and
neighbors of this vicinity.
we are privileged to live in a
great age. Who does not believe
max, wnen Dy a mere twist or a
knob or two he can have his pres
ident and other high officials of the
nation sit own with him and tell
him their ideas of government.
Whether or not one agrees with
their ideas, anyone who was priv
ileged to hear Henry W. Wallace,
secretary of agriculture, and Cor
dell Hull, secretary of state, in ra
dio addresses this week, could not
help but be impressed by the broad
view they have of their tasks, and
their depth of understanding of the
problems confronting the nation.
They are not supermen. And,
mayhap, neither are they more ca
pable than their predecessors. But
the fact that radio is bringing the
men in high office ever closer to the
people, so that the people may the
better know them and the things
they hope to accomplish, surely
marks a new era in national un
derstanding and enlightenment
The Washington Star, the broad
casting companies, and others re
sponsible for such programs, are
giving true patriotic service.
Not equaled in our national his
tory, are the powers which have
been delegated to President Roose
velt. This morning comes the news
that the "inflation" bill which would
give the president power to Inflate
currency by $6,000,000,000 if he
deems it necessary; to decrease the
value of the gold dollar as much as
50 percent, and to take unparalellcd
steps for farm relief; had passed
the house of representatives.
Unless the president has had a
complete change of heart in the
last few weeks, he will use spar
ingly such powers as are given
him for inflation. At no time has
he favored reckless inflation. That
assures larger confidence of the

Mrs. Harold Conn had charge of
the preparation of the ballet fea
tures, and these were especially
striking. She was assisted In the
direction of these dances by her
sister, Mrs. Adelyn O'Shea. Each
number called forth appreciative
applause from the audience.
The cast was a large one and
necessarily called for a lot of work
on the part of those participating.
The preparation had been a matter
of serious attention in the music
department for several weeks, and
the performance was a fitting se
qual to the time and labor of both
director and actors. Leading parts
were well sustained by Billie Coch

The upper Butter creek section
was the first to start shearing oper

after many sheep had just been
shorn, caught them unprotected,
causing them to pile up and smoth

pitching for lone up to the eighth,
when he was relieved by Bill Whit
son, did not get into much trouble
of his own making. Some of the
youngsters behind him Just didnt
have the confidence on easy chances
and several times threw the ball
away. When they get over their
nervousness, lone will . make it
tough on any of the other teams in
the league. Whitson proved a little
wild and three batsmen whom he
walked crossed home plate.
Rod Thomson, batting clean-up
for the locals, took good care of
the place by lining out two three
baggers over the left field fence and
driving in four runs. Heppner runs
were scored one In the second, two
in the third, one In the fourth,
three in the seventh and three In
the ninth.
Next Sunday Condon comes to
Rodeo field to engage the locals.
