Subscription $200 a Year GRANT COUNTY FOLK GUESTS ATJANQUET Interchange of Good Will , Featured by Gift of $100 for Derby. ENJOY GOOD MUSIC Closer Relationship Possible Thru Better Roads, Stressed; Is Boost for Rodeo as Many Attend. An Incident of good fellowship marking closer relationship between the people of Morrow and Grant counties was the Rodeo "kick-off" banquet staged under auspices of the Rodeo association at I. O. O. F. hall Monday evening. Twenty three leading Grant county citizens, the majority of whom were from John Day, were present to receive the $100 bill contributed by Hepp ner merchants for the staging of a Heppner derby at the John Day race meet on Saturday, Sept. 22, and to express good will greetings. A most enjoyable program of en tertainment featured vocal solos by Mrs. J. L. Gault of Corvallis and Marvin Roy of Pilot Rock, and mu sical recitations by Miss Loraine Pope. Mrs. Gault sang two groups of three numbers each, the first be ing an Indian group and the other a group of classical numbers, in which she thoroughly gained the hearts of her audience. Mr. Roy first sang "When You and I Were Young, Maggie" in an appealing manner, following with a group of yodeling songs which called forth hearty response from his listeners. Miss Pope's readings combined the sub lime with thoughts of lighter vein, and her manner of presentation marked her as an accomplished ar tist of musical verse. Mrs. J. O. Turner accompanied Mrs. Gault and Miss Pope, and Mrs. Roy ac companied her husband. The mu sical program was a rare treat to the Heppner peole, and many from here as well as many from among the visitors expressed deep appre ciation of this enjoyable feature. J. O. Turner, toastmaster, steered the program In an accomplished manner with appropriate introduc tions and responses for the various speakers. Gay M. Anderson, mayor, welcomed the Grant county visitors and extended them the hospitality of the city. Response to Mayor Anderson's welcome was made by Herman Ol iver, president of Oregon Cattle and Horse Raisers' association, cattle man and banker of John Day and member of the Oregon State Board of Higher Education, who intro duced the members of the visiting delegation in an entertaining man ner. Those introduced included R. G. Johnson, Grant county agent; Rosa Maloney, chairman Grant fair board; J. N. Pocock, cashier Grant county bank; O. L.

How ard Black, Louie DeLine, Miss An na McGann and Mrs. Christine Green were also here from John Day. Presentation of the Heppner derby fund was made by Chas. B. Cox, postmaster, to Mr. Maloney, the fair chairman, who responded with fitting expression of appre ciation. Mr. Jones, the editor, paid fitting tribute to the land of his adoption and to the closer friend ship made possible through better road connections. S. E. Notson further stressed the advancement of this section and of the state through the good roads program which has been developed much faster than he, as one of the early advocates, ever dared hope. A real Lions roar was given by C. J. D. Bauman, president of the Heppner club, to which response was made by Mr. Farley, president of the John Day club. A little extra fun was injected Into their pep talks when they drug Mr. Carter "onto the carpet" for alleged shop-lifting. Henry Aiken, Rodeo president, wound up the speaking program by telling of the features of this year's show on August 30-31-September 1, which are expected to make it bet ter than ever. He also extended felicitations to the Grant county show and invited Grant county peo ple to the Rodeo. Miss Irma Lane and Miss Beth Wright, candidates for Rodeo queen were Introduced by Mr. Turner, Miss Dimple Crab tree and Miss Mary Cunha, the other candidates, were unable to accept the invitation to attend. In a letter received from Mr. Jones yesterday, he said: "The boys are all very enthusiastic about the wonderful reception, fine hospital ity and splendid program of enter tainment arranged. I am sure that you may expect a much better co operation in all matters of common interest between the two counties hereafter and believe such gather ings once in a while are eminently worth while." The dinner was prepared and served by Mrs. Ada Cason, and cov ers were laid for 110 people. The yd.'--A'0 ,t 74&wgfiY ZLcj J tKJt 4 b "WC ? I'm ' ! -.11 ) J M- .

Jack rabbits are crowding down into the alfalfa fields and cultivated districts with the drying up of their feed in the sage brush. Damage is not as great as can be expected with the continued dry weather. Poisoning of rabbits has been ef fectively carried on In several east ern Oregon sections. One of the most effective methods of poison ing, according to Ira N. Gabrielson, assistant biologist In charge of ro dent control operatives in Oregon, Is to use chopped green alfalfa dusted with strychnine. About 12 pounds of chopper alfalfa is dusted with one ounce of powdered alka loid strychnine and is scattered In small handfuls along a hillside in the main runways. Care must be taken to avoid poisoning stock. Small stakes placed near the piles assist in collecting the unused baits. Orders for strychnine for ths purpose and instructions as to the mixing and placing of baits may be had at the county agent's ofllce. WRITING GROUP TO MEET. The League of Western Writers, Inc., will hold their eighth Interna tional convention at the Multno mah hotel In Portland, August 14 18, Inclusive.

All who are interested in writing and good literature will be welcome. Rodeo association expresses Its thanks to all who helped to make the occasion a success. Miss Marjorie Clark Weds Gordon Ridings Of much interest to their many Heppner friends was the marriage in Portland, Wednesday, July 25, of Miss Marjorie Clark, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Malcolm D. Clark of this city, to Mr. Gordon Ridings of Eugene. The ceremony was quietly performed at high noon by Rev. F. E. Haight, well known Methodist minister, in the chapel of the Meth odist church with the bride's par ents, her brother-in-law and sister Mr. and Mrs. Frank Riggs of Eu gene, in attendance, Mrs. Riggs standing with the bride and Mr. Riggs with the bridegroom. The bride was charming in a bridal gown of white organdy with cor sage of gardenias. The beautiful ring ceremony was used. Immediately after the ceremony the young couple left for a wedding trip to the coast, expecting also to visit Oregon caves and Crater lake before going to Eugene where they will be at home for a month at the Wilder apartments.

The well being drilled by the county an the court house grounds has been put down to a depth of 150 feet and the water showed with in 46 feet of the top when a test was niade Friday. In the test 1250 gallons was dipped from the well in an hour, the last 30 minutes of which was worked with the water 30 feet deep, and though 600 gallons was dipped in this time the water was not lowered. Judge Campbell said drilling would be continued for a time as the formation In which the drill Is now working gives In dication that a still larger flow may be tapped. Fred Nichoson of lone is doing the drilling. Heppner's Interior Road Important Highway Link This map, made several years ago, shows the importance of the Heppner-Spray road as a con necting link in the state highway system. News was received this week of the allocation of $40,000 on the route, which will close the last gap, making it hard-surfaced throughout and accessible to year-round travel. This map was prepared at the direction of the late R. J. Carsner, former state senator, "who pioneere the efforts soon to be suc cessfully crowned by the road's completion. A few changes in surveys during the road's con struction makes some of the distances shown on the map inaccurate. GRANT ALL-STARS WIN SENECA GAME 13 -Tally Rout in First Inning Proves Too Much for Locals to Overcome; Score 1-49. Out in the center of the world's largest belt of ponderosa pine at Seneca, Heppner bumped up against a bunch of big sticks in the hand3 of the Grant county all-stars Sun- I day afternoon. Before the local boys were really aware that they were playing a ball game, the all stars had chalked up 12 markers in the first inning with successive home runs by "Butter" Shields and Willingham aiding and abetting the onslaught. The all-stars confronted Ray Massey 15 times before the dust was shaken from the last batsman s heels, and before Ray's mates could take time to wipe the sweat from their brows, and take note of the fact that it was really a ball game. Ray had a sore arm and wasn't up to snuff, but only five safe hits were registered against him at that. He made a little trouble for him self by hitting one batsman and walking another, but four errors by his teammates didn't help any.. Wick Parrish, late of Condon and Arlington, blew in about the middle of the first inning fiasco. He was rushed into a suit and came to Ray's relief in the second inning, and the final score of 14-9 indicates he did a good job. The all-stars touched him up for one run in the third on Shield's fielder's choice and Wil- lingham'a hit, and gne more in the seventh on hits by Hollenbeck and McKrola, but that was all. Heppner showed a bit of fight in the second, when the boys scored four runs on hits by Bill Massey, Bucknum, Clarence Hayes, Parrish and Crawford. Parrish hit his first of two three-baggers in this rally, Bill Massey s nemer's choice and Turner's hit brought in another In the third, and three were garnered in the fourth on Parrishs second three-bagger, and hits by Turner, Homer Hayes and Bill Massey. The final score was made in the ninth on successive two-baggers by Bill Massey and Bucknum. The locals touched up Shields for 14 hits in all, while the all-stars got but 11 safe blows off Ray Massey and Parrish. The line-ups were, Heppner, Jap Crawford If, Ray Massey p-2, Lowell Turner 1, Homer Hayes cf, Bill Massey c, Gordon Bucknum ss, Clarence Hayes cf, Raymond Ferguson 3, Bill McRob erts 2, Wick Parrish p; all-stars, McKrola cf, Farley 2, Shields p, Willingham 3, Burke If, Klnsey ss, Holmboe c, Pynes rf, Hollenbeck 1. Accompanying the team were Mrs. Lowell Turner, Dr. J. H. Mc Crady, Mr. and Mrs. Glen Hayes and Richard, Earle Bryant and John Conwell. The party stopped at Joaquin Miller resort for eve ning dinner, and report an enjoy able time. CORRECTION. The Gazette Times reported last week that F. M. Watkins and Ad ren Allen of Irrigon had eah been sentenced to 60 days in the Uma tilla county jail on plea of guilty to the alleged larceny of beer keg at Hermiston.

VOLLE MILL RAZED ; FIRE FOREST Work of Fighters Saves Homes, Lumber ; Wind Fans Flames. BURNS OVER MILE Wind Shift Helps In Control; Em ergency Crews Called; Bill Becket Receives Burns. Changing wind and hard work by a large crew of firefighters checked a bad forest fire, starting from the Voile mill shortly above the forks of Rhea creek about 3 o'clock Monday afternoon. Sparks from the mill chimney are believed to have started the fire which com pletely razed the mill and spread rapidly to the surrounding forest. Homes close to the mill were all saved through hard work on the part of the fighters. A high wind quickly took the flames into the crowns of the trees and It moved at a rapid rate for a time, causing the emergency fire crew to be called from Heppner. The wind was in the northwest when the fire started, and early re ports were that the flames were headed toward Ditch creek. Later in the evening the wind shifted from the south, and by backfiring the crew got it well in hand. Tues day morning the fire had dropped down into underbrush. A consid erable amount of logged off land in its path helped to check the fire's progress. When put in check it is estimated to have covered a stretch a mile long and half a mile wide, being confined to the Rhea creek basin. The mill shed and machinery of the Voile mill were a complete loss with no insurance. Several thous and feet of lumber piled near by was saved. Billy Becket and Bob Rosencrans had a close shave in the fire. They were bringing a truck load of wood through, when the truck slipped off the grade into a burning stump. The wood on the truck caught on fire, and the boys threw it off to save the truck. In doing so they burned their feet, but saved the truck, thoutrh three of the tires anj the battery were put out of commission. Frank Shivery, owner of the truck, reports insurance to cover the damage. The mill belonged to Reuben and John Voile, each of whose homes1 are close by. Oregon Trail Pageant Very Good Production That the Oregon Trail pageant presented in Eugene last week end was a grand spectacle of much ed ucational and entertainment value is the belief of Vawter and Spencer Crawford, Gazette Times proprie tors, who had the good fortune of attending the presentation on Sat urday. More than 2000 people took part in the epic showing of Oregon history from the time of the first covered wagon train up to the pres ent day. It was presented on a stage covering the football gridiron at Hayward field with a mountain setting some 60 feet in height. Nothing less than astounding was the rapidity with which scenes and performers appeared with never a hitch. Choruses, orchestrations, lighting effects and all were su perb. Report was heard that the pageant paid its way on Friday, the first day, and that Saturday's re ceipts would be in the clear, mak ing it possible that such a presen tation would be given yearly. The parade Saturday morning wn.q nlsn hitrhlv nrnispH. Tt was uade up of more tnan 120 entries, most of which depicted typically Oregon scenes. Saturday morning Spencer Craw ford attended the organization meeting of the Oregon Republican club as a member of the nominat ing committee. All the temporary ofliccrs were retained.

Barratt returned Saturday evening from Salt Lake City where he attended a drouth relief confer ence last week. Mr. Barratt was especially interested in the drouth work as it will be applied to the sheep industry. Morrow county so far has not been included as one of the drouth counties, though Mr. Barratt said application had been made to include it as conditions which prevail here are said to jus tify it. Full details of the drouth relief for the sheep industry have not been announced, but the relief is expected to be similar to that given the beef industry, with the government paying for stock found necessary to slaughter because of lack of feed.

LUST GAP III SPRAY ROAD TO BE CLDSEO $40,000 for Grading 2.46 Mile Stretch, Finishing Surfacing, Allotted. $8,000 SET FOR BRIDGE New Span Over Rhea Creek Also to be Built; All-Year Road is Important State Link. Allocation of funds for complet ing the last gap of the Heppner Spray road was made Monday night by the state highway commission at its meeting in Eugene. While re port in this morning's Oregonian showed the allocation of $40,000 for grading 2.46 miles between Hard man and Chapin creek, it is known that $40,000 was the engineer's es timate for surfacing and grading all the remaining unfinished stretch and that this amount will close the last gap in the highway. Also allotted by the commission was $8,000 for building a bridge across Rhea creek on the Heppner-Condon-Wasco highway. Money for this work came from an allo cation of federal aid funds of which Oregon received $3,097,814, the major portion of which was dis tributed at the Eugene meeting. The commisison's action on the Heppner-Spray road not only as sures the early completion of Hepp ner's road into the interior, but closes an important link in the state highway system. Though a secondary highway, this road con nects up the Oregon-Washington highway at Heppner with the John Day highway two miles south of Spray, providing the most direct route for a large amount of traffic from points to the northeast to cen tral Oregon or California. By this route it is 52 miles from Heppner to Spray. Thirteen miles west of Spray on the John Day highway, is the connection with the Service creek cut-off to the Ochoco highway at Mitchell, a distance of 24 miles. From this point it is 74 miles to Redmond and the junction with The Dalles-California high way. From Redmond to Bend is 22 miles, making a total distance from Heppner to Bend of 185 miles. It is 226 miles to Bend via the Sher man highway, the route most com monly used before, hence the dis tance to Bend is shortened by 63 miles. The distance to John Day by this route is 121 miles. When the last of the gravel is In place on the Heppner-Spray road, it will be an all-year road, the first all-year road into the interior from here. The $8,000 allotted by the com mission for a bridge on Rhea creek will replace the present narrow span at the Rugg place, and will serve both the Heppner - Condon and Heppner-Spray roads. Local people have received news of the allotments with much pleas ure. Short Court Session Held by Judge Sweek Judge Calvin L. Sweek and J. A.
