Margaret Gillis, Nurse
with State Assocation,
Explains to Lions.
Skin-Testing Campaign to Assist in
Controlling; "White Plague";
Good Results Had.
Tuberculosis, the once dreaded
"white Plague," is preventable and
long strides have been made toward
its complete eradication In Oregon,
Miss Margaret Gillis, nurse with
the Oregon State Tuberculosis as
sociation, told the Heppner Lions
club at its Monday luncheon. Con
stant vigilance and unceasing work
have been the means of lowering
Oregon's death rate from tubercu
losis to the lowest rate in any of
the states, Miss Gillis said.
Misg Gillis was in the county to
make a check-up of the skin-testing
campaign made for the Board
man and Irrigon communities last
February, and explained the nature
of this test which it hoped to carry
out at Heppner for the rest of the
county shortly after school opens
In the fall. By this test the pres
ence of tuberculosis in the individ
ual is determined and steps pre
scribed where necessary.
The skin test by which tuberculo
sis Is revealed is somple and safe,
Miss Gillis said. It consists of In
jecting a clear serum between the
layers of the skin in the front fore
arm just below the elbow. If posi
tive reaction to the test is shown,
a red spot appears where the serum
is injected. Such reaction does not
mean the presence of active tuber
culosis, but does call for a further
Positive reactors are asked to
have x-ray pictures taken of the
chest. These pictures reveal to a
qualified doctor whether the reactor
has an arrested case, and whether
a further examination is necessary.
Dr. Bellinger, head of the state tu
berculosis hospitals and one of the
outstanding authorities on tuber
culosis, reads the x-ray pictures and
himself does much of the follow up
work. It was to prepare for a visit
of Dr. Bellinger to the Irrigon and
Boardman sections that Miss Gillis
was here the first of the week.
If the x-ray pictures reveal cases
where personal examination is
deemed necessary, a capable chest
specialist, such as Miss Gillis, is
sent Into the field to obtain histories
of such cases to assist the examin
ing physician In determining future
treatment. If the nature of the
case is such as to demand It, appli
cation is made for care at one of
the state tuberculosis hospitals.
The state tuberculosis association
has taken the lead in conducting
the skin-test clinics, through which
a number of active cases of tuber
culosis have been uncovered and
proper treatment given. The asso
ciation provides the services of the
nurse, and local physicians gener
ally cooperate In giving the test and
In taking the x-ray pictures, with
no cost to the children examined
except for the pictures. The service
is made possible thru the annual
Bale of Christmas Seals. Miss Gil
lis said that fine cooperation was
had at Irrigon and Boardman, and
the Lions gave assurance that good
cooperation would be given if the
tests are made here.
The matter of obtaining recogni
tion for the Heppner-Spray road In
the expendtlurs of federal road
funds recently received by the state
was also discussed by the club, and
It was expected to use the club's
influence in seeing that the cause
was represented before the meeting
of the. Btate highway commission
next Saturday.
Miss Adele Nickerson, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. F. B. Nickerson,
was married on Sunday afternoon
at All Saints' Episcopal church to
Mr. Wm. C. Hayes of Etowah, Ala
bama. Rev. M. G. Tennyson, Epis
copal minister, performed the cere
mony In the presence of immediate
members of the bride's family. Mrs.
Hayes, a graduate of Heppner high
school with the class of 1932, re
cently completed a beauty course in
Portland and opened Adele's Beau
ty Shoppe here about a month ago.
She Is a popular member of Hepp
ner's younger set. Mr. Hayes is a
young engineer who came to Hepp
ner recently as a member of the
federal coast and geodetic survey
ing crew who have been at work in
this vicinity. As soon as Mr. Hayes'
work Is completed here, the young

Field Day at Cool Farm Sunday
Well Attended; Cox and Smith
Speak on Program.
"All of the free ice cream you can
eat" has been heard by many a boy
and girl, however, it is our guess
that last Sunday was one of the,
very few times that this has been
a reality when W. C. Cox, manager
of the Morrow County Creamery
lived up to his promise and supplied
free Ice cream to all who attend
ed the Willows grange annual pic
nic at the H. E. Cbol farm near
How to get better prices for but
ter and increase the consumption
were the topics discussed by Mr.
Cox and by C. W. Smith, county
agent. It was brought out that the
butter made in Oregon would be
worth three-quarters of a million
dollars more per year at present
quotations if it were all sold on the
basis of official wholesale quotations
for 92 score butter, than if it were
all sold on the basis of 89 score
quotations. When higher prices are
received by the creamery It natur
ally can distribute more back to the
producers. The producer of the
butter fat and the butter maker
must work hand in hand in mak
ing good butter. The producer's
part is to furnish good cream to the
creamery and the butter maker
must apply his knowledge and skill
In making the highest quality but
ter possible from the cream. The
buttermaker cannot be expected to
make high quality butter that will
bring top price unless he has good
materials to work with. Cleanliness
of the cows and the milker and the
various utensils as well as prompt
cooling of the milk are fundamen
tal if good butter is to be made.
Dairy utensils used should be
scrubbed with hot water containing
soda washing powders and not soap
which is ordinarily used by the
Cardinal points to be observed in
producing cream from which high
quality butter can be made are;
Strong-flavored feeds should not
be fed to cows shortly before milk
ing; keep healthy cows; keep cows
clean; wipe udders with a clean,
damp cloth before milking; screen
the barn and milk house; the milk
er's hands should be washed and
dried by a clean towei before milk
ing; use clean, sterile utensils;
wash and sterilize the separator
twice dally; cool the cream prompt
ly by setting can In flowing water!
cover the cream cans with a clean
tea towel to keep out foreign obi
jects; keep the cream at a temper
ature below 50 F. if possible; use
well-tinned, sanitary utensils; keep
the cream in a pure atmosphere;
keep the utensils in a clean, well
ventilated place; the cream should
contain 32 to 35 percent fat; and
deliver the cream to the creamery
before it turns sour.
Members of the 4-H clubs of the
lone district contributed several
numbers to the program and horse
shoe pitching was the main sport
of the day. A good crowd of grang
ers and their friends was present
111 Luck Trails Family
of Local Farm Operator
A streak of ill luck seems to be
trailing the family of A. W. Gam
mell of this city. On Sunday, while
hauling hay in from the field, Mr.
Gammell was run over by the load
ed wagon and his left leg broken.
The Injury was between the ankle
and knee, both bones being broken
twice. His injuries were promptly
cared for by a physician and he is
getting along as well as could be
In the latter part of March the
infant daughter of Edna Piatt,,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gammell,
who resides in California, died. On
the 13th day of June her husband
was killed in a truck accident and
Edna is now bereft of both child

Mr. and Mrs. Gammell on Tuesday

pital In Walla Walla and was to be
operated on that day for appendi
citis. Truly troubles are not com
ing singly to this family.

Jack Terry, Former Rodeo
Star, Meets Near Death
Jack Terry, who followed black
smithing here for several years and
who won the bucking championship
for two years at the Heppner Ro
deo, was terribly Injured on Dec
oration Day when the boom of a
derrick he was moving at his home
near Stockton, Cal., hit a high ten
sion electric line, sending 7000 volts
through his body, according to
word received by friends here. He
is at Room 105, St. Joseph's hospi
tal, Stockton, receiving the best of
care, but will not be able to walk
for at least four months.
Doctors call Jack the "Miracle
Man" for being still alive after tak
ing the high voltage which burned
his feet and hands to the bone. He
underwent an operation on the 19th
for the removal of the dead flesh
from the feet, which left little of
the feet but bone. The doctor was
afraid for a time he would lose the
right foot, but was encouraged as
the poison drained from Jack's sys
tem. Skin grafting on the feet was
to be started Saturday. It is likely
Jack's buckaroo days will be over,
even though recovery is complete.
Meantime his Heppner friends will
be pulling for him strong.

Tentative Allocation of Federal
Funds Gives Local Road Funds
to Finish Grade and Surface.
Tentative allocation of federal
secondary highway funds by the
Oregon State Highway commission
calls for $35,000 for completion of
the Heppner-Spray road, according
to information received In Heppner
this morning. The amount of $35,
000 is based upon estimates by the
engineers of the commission, and it
Is expected would be sufficient to
complete the grade and surfacing
of the road.
Final decision on the allocation of
funds will be made by the commis
sion at its meeting in Portland next
Monday, and it is expected there
will be a delegation from Heppner
present to urge the completion of
the road. In line with the recent
ly announced policy of the com
mission to use the allotment of fed
eral money to complete roads now
nearly finished before starting new
projects, it is believed the Heppner
Spray road will receive favorable
consideration of the road body. In
case the tentative allocation is made
officially it is expected the contracts
for grading and surfacing will be
awarded immediately and work will
be started within a few weeks.
Tales of Old Times
pioneer editor of the "Gaaet" writlnf
from National Military Borne,
Uncle Charlie Wallace had a hap
py, hospitable home up on Balm
Fork, and he and his good wife,
Aunt Abigail, always welcomed us
when we dropped in to stay all
night, on our way to hunt bear up
in the Blue Mountains. One night
as we sat around in the big front
room, and the conversation rather
slowed up, Judge Dutton asked Un
cle Charlie how many cows he had
'W-e-ell, let's see," said Charlie.
"I sold ten cows to Professor Ken
nedy, ten to Will Morrow, three to
Butcher Bill, and one to John Red-
ington, five to Tom Quaid, two to
Bill Leezer, and let's see, some to
somebody else, and well, I can't
remember. But the books will
And Aunt Abigail, the good wife,
chimed in with:
"Why, Charles, you know that
you never kept a book in your life!"
So, we let it go at that, and Jim
Fuller changed the subject
"Don't shoot the squaws, boys,"
said Captain English, as the battle
raged among the lodges (Jf the hos
tile Nez Perces at the Big Hole bat
tle. Just then a big squaw raised
the flap of a lodge and took a pot
shot at the Captain. She shot high,
so that the bullet went through the
hat instead of lower down.
Professor Kennedy, phrenologist,
came to our town and gave free
lectures but charged $5 for an xam
ination and a chart of your head
bumps. He figured out that my
bumps showed special talent for en
gineering and sizing up distances
for instance, I could walk right over
to a window sill and put my finger
on the exact center. I insisted on
trying it, and he said There! you
struck it exactly! But I also insist
ed on testing it with a tape meas
ure, and found I was seven inches)
off. But the rest of the bumps were
bumptious, and I must have con
sulted that chart as much as three
or four times. And where is it now?
Yes, where?

Would Learn Story of
Doughboy and Dollar Bill
What kind of a story could this
dollar bill tell, had it the power of
speech ?
J. D. Cash, J. C. Penney Co. man
ager and an active member in the
local post American Legion, has
the bill, taken in the regular chan
nel of trade at his store this week.
It is one of the large, old-time is
sue bills which circulated before
Uncle Sam started to conserve pa
per by issuing the later, more petite
size. Written with ink on its back
is the inscription, "Samaur, France
R. E. LaGreve, 309 Residence, Al
bany, Ga. Sept 6, 1918."
No doubt R. E. LaGreve was an
American doughboy in Saumur
France on Sept. 6, 1918, a little
more than two months before the
armistice was signed. As to the
circumstances under which the bill
was inscribed, one may only guess
until the story is learned, as MrJ
Cash hopes it will be when he puts
the American Legion Monthly on
its trail.

20,000 Republicans From Over State
Expected to Attend Affair at
Jantzen Beach, Portland.
Portland, June 27. (Special) If
the advance sale of tickets is any
criterion, at least 20,000 Republi
cans from all parts of Oregon will
be in attendance at the Republican
clubs' state-wide picnic at Jantzen
Beach park in Portland, Sunday,
July 8.
According to officials of the out
ing, reservations for tickets have
been received from all sections of
the state and a large throng of par
ty members, residing outside of
Portland, is expected to be among
those present
The picnic is the first move of a
concerted campaign by Republican
leaders to revive interest and create
harmony and unity within the party
ranks. Britt Nedry, president of
the Oregon Republican clubs, left
Portland today for a tour of the
western sector of the state to stim
ulate interest in the forthcoming
affair and to assist in organizing
Republican club chapters in the va
rious towns. He planned to visit all
communities in the Willamette val
ley, southern Oregon, and coastal
districts before returning to Port
land. The picnic program committee
has scheduled a long list of events
for the entertainment of the visit
ors. The honored guests for the
occasion will be Oregon's delega
tion in congress and leading party
nominees. All will be introduced
and will deliver brief talks.
"If success is to be obtained in
the general election, the party must
be marshalled into an undivided
army," Mr. Nedry stated at a recent
meeting of Republican leaders. "We
hope to accomplish this by means
of forming chapters throughout the
state and are holding the picnic for
the purpose of launching our or
ganizing drive. Every Republican
who is able should attend this out
ing, and observe at first hand the
men who aspire to bear the party
standards in the coming election."
Ralph Hamilton, former speaker
of the Oregon House, is general
chairman of the executive commit
tee in charge of the picnic and Sam
Wilderman and John H. Hall are
serving as vice-chairmen. State
Senator F. M. Franciscovich of As
toria will be master of ceremonies.
James Hart Dies Suddenly
At Los Angeles Yesterday
The news was received by the
relatives . at Heppner early this
morning announcing the sudden
death at Los Angeles, about 4:00
o'clock p. m. Wednesday, of James
Hart, brother of Mrs. Melissa Mar
latt and Mrs. Ellen Schwarz. His
death was doubtless caused by a
heart attack, as for some years past
Mr. Hart has been afflicted with
heart trouble.
Definite arrangements for the fu
neral had not been made as we go
to press, but the relatives here ex
pect that the body will be brought

five years he has followed the hotel
business, having worked for Phil
Metschan of the Imperial hotel In

Longview, Wash., where he held a
similar position with the Monticello
hotel, and during the past several
years he has been with the Roose
velt hotel at Hollywood, which is
under the management of the same
man for whom Mr. Hart worked at
Longview. At the time of the open

been measured, according to reports
coming from the office of the Mor
row County Wheat Production Con
trol association. Nine field crews
are measuring the land and the
acreages are being computed in the
production control office. Farmers
are asked to come to the office and
fill out the certificates of compli
ance. It would be well for each
grower to wait five or six days af
ter the farm supervisor visits his
ranch before calling to fill the com
pliance certificates, in order to be
sure that his acreage figures have
been completed.
Most of the acreages are running
under the farmers' estimates. From
the acreages that have been figured,
it looks as though there has been
more than a fifteen percent reduc
tion throughout the entire county.
Most of the estimates as given in
by the farmers are fairly accurate
and show that they had a very good
idea as to the number of acres their
fields contained.
Contrary to newspaper reports
Morrow county is not going to use
the aerial method of measuring the
wheat lands, due to the fact that so
many of the farmers started their
harvesting operations before auth
orization was given by the office of
the Wheat Section in Washington
that the aerial survey would be per
mitted. Owners' proof of compliance have
been sent to landowners who live
outside of the county and it is hoped
that these will be returned in time
so that clearance sheets can be sent
to Washington, D. C, by July 25.

ent is now on the job assisting the
association officials in the mid-Columbia
territory in interpreting the
rulings as laid down by the Wash
ington office.
