SLEEP CRASH CAUSE Wail of Bridge Two Miles West of The Dalles Hit on Return From Portland With Freight F. Jay Hiatt, local truck operator and farmer, a native son of Morrow county, was instantly killed about 2 o'clock Tuesday morning when his truck crashed into the wall of a concrete bridge two miles west of The Dalles. He was returning from Portland with a load of freight, having gone to the city Sunday night with a load of live stock. With him was Ted McDaid who escaped with minor injuries when he was thrown from the cab. Funeral services have been an nounced for 2:30 o'clock this after noon at the Christian church in charge of Heppner post 87, Ameri can Legion, of which Mr. Hiatt was a member, with Joel R. Benton of ficiating. Interment will follow in Masonic cemetery. The accident is believed to have been caused by Haitt's dozing at the wheel. As they approached the bridge, McDaid noticed that the truck was headed for the side wall and ipoke to Hiatt who apparently came to himself enough to pull the truck over In the right direction, but it didn't quite clear. The end of the bumper on the right side was shorn off, a big gash was cut In the right front tire and the wheel and fender were bent beneath the truck, then as the proejctlon of the bed caught on the concrete wall the full weight of the load was shifted forward against the driver's side, crushing Hiatt against the wheel. The top of the cab was bent over against the hood, while all the glass was shattered except that in the door on McDaid's side. This door was sprung open and McDaid was thrown out on his hands and knees. The rate of speed of the truck was given at 35 miles an hour. On coming to himself McDaid at first thought the truck to be on fire as he noticed what appeared to be smoke coming from under the hood. He Immediately got the fire extinguisher, but found the smoke to be steam caused by water drip ping on the hot manifold. He then attempted to arouse Hiatt who was tightly pinned inside, lifeless. Mc Daid then went to a neighboring farm house and called a wrecker and the sheriff from The Dalles. Immediately on receipt of news at Heppner, John Hiatt, brother, and a number of friends drove to the scene of the accident. John Anglln, local MacMarr store mana ger, who had freight on the truck, also drove down. The body was brought to Heppner Tuesday eve ning by the Case Mortuary ambu lance. Slight damage was done to the freight, with damage to both truck and load fully covered by insurance.

Locals Take Arlington For Fifth Straight Win Led by the beautiful broken field running of Floyd Jones and the piv oting and twisting of Cleo Hiatt and Louis Gilliam in line plunges, Hepp ner high school's "Fighting Irish" eleven won their fifth consecutive victory of the season when they de feated the speedy Arlington grld ders 44-7 on the local field Friday. Heppner played a fast game with Matt Kenny and Harold Ayers, captain, doing good work in the line. Running more than thirty yards on each run, Floyd Jones, left halfback, netted four of the seven touchdowns besides a try for point Arlington scored in the fourth quarter on a completed pass. Us ing a double-wing-back formation enabled Arlington to fake trick plays which kept the Irish on spec ial guard whenever the visitors got the ball. The game was refereed by Harold W. Buhman. The starting line-up of both teams follows: Heppner Arlington D Drake RE Deos Reld RT I Woods Kenny RG Mead Ayers C Wetheral Burkenbine LG Drake Dick C. Phelan Gilliam Jones Morgan .- LT C.

In company with Bud Ayers she had just called at the home of Henry Robertson on the hill on South Main street. She was sitting in the car and Ayers was preparing to. crank it when she was asked to throw the gears into neutral, but by mistake they were placed in reverse, so that when Ayers turned the crank the car was started backward down the hill. Ayers made a jump to get in and stop it, but before he could do anything it rolled over down the grade, landing upside down on the highway below. Ayers escaped in jury, while Mrs. Clark was taken to a local hospital for treatment. It is believed her injuries will not prove serious.

For the con venience of Heppner folks a num ber of seats have been placed on sale at Gordon's TREE FRUIT CODE NOW IN OPERATION Federal Purchase' of Surpluses for Relief Starts; Oregon Men On Wheat Board. Putting the northwest fruit agree ment into effect, connecting up na tional relief measures with pur chase of surplus farm products, and setting up machinery to expedite payment of wheat benefits are but a few of the most recent outstand ing accomplishments under the ag ricultural adjustment act, accord ing to the current weekly review by the Oregon State college extension service. Though the marketing code for the northwest tree fruit industries was delayed much longer than ex pected, it has now been placed into full effect so that all shipping and marketing of apples and pears in interstate commerce from the Pa cific northwest will be under its provisions. The agreement authorizes the control of the maximum volume of fruit to be moved to market, regu lation of varieties, grades and sizes to be marketed at any given time, and the setting of minimum prices below which no fruit will be shipped to markets. Oregon fruit districts have been active in support of the agreement from the start of the ne gotiations last summer. Pork, butter, beef, fruit and prob ably other foods of which there are market surpluses at this time are to be purchased through a special relief unit of the A. A. A. organized to buy up such products and trans fer them to 3.500,000 families on re lief rolls. This is to be done thru cooperation with the federal Emer gency Relief administration. This action does not remove the fundamental necessity for produc tion control, particularly for those commodities which in the past have been sold in large volume abroad, warns Secretary of Agriculture Wallace and other leaders. The plan of direct purchases will help to remove present surpluses by di verting food to this formerly great ly restricted domestic market, but many problems of overproduction still remain to be attacked at the source through control measures. Two Oregon men are included on a review board of 12 selected from all wheat sections of the United States and now known as the County Acceptance unit of the wheat administration. These will review the contracts from each county as they reach Washington, make minor corrections where pos sible without returning the con tracts, and give final approval by counties so that checks may be made out. It is thought they will be able to pass upon contracts from about 70 counties a day. The two Oregon men included are A. R. Shumway, Milton, presi dent of the Pacific Northwest Co operative Grain Growers, and Paul C. Newman, Portland, a graduate of Oregon State college now in the federal crop statistician's olllce.
