Try-Outs Reveal Likely
Looking Tophands Who
Will Go Up in Show
Some little inkling of what may
be expected to happen this after
noon, and the afternoons of tomor
row and Saturday, was given at the
try-outs last Sunday when a large
gang of fans saw some top-notch
bucking exhibitions. All of which
led to the conclusion to watch that
boy Rutherford when he goes up In
the show.
Glen Rutherford, whose home
town is Boardman In the north end
of the county, drew one of the
toughest mustangs of the lot in the
last tryout And he rode him to a
finish "a championship ride in any
show," so many said.
Five boys went up all told on Ave
different horses, ad all were good
rides, excepting that Lloyd Depew
of Ukiah miscalculated the prowess
of Al Smith and was left lying in
the dust.
It so happens that occasionally Al
just runs and kicks up his heels a
bit, forgetting to do his stuff. That's
why he was tried out Sunday. Well,
this time, he lit out lickety-split and
when he got up a good head of
steam, he proceeded to blow off. He
just natur'ly migrated way to one
side all at once and Lloyd continued
in the same direction in which Al
started, though Lloyd's momentum
forward ceased and he sat down.
A pretty fine ride was made by
Bob McDow of Dayton, Wash., who
drew a cute little bay horse with
obstreperous mannerisms. In the
snubbing process, Eb Hughes, snub
ber, just barely escaped a boxing at
the hands of this mustangs front
feet. Finally the horse was all
cinched up and Bob was up way
up, as the critter when released
went off the ground about six feet
with all four feet and a hump in his
back like a dromedary. .But Bob
Buck Tiffin, who placed second in
the northwest bucking at Pendleton
last year, and Jack Hartman, one
of the winners at the last Ukiah
show, were the other riders who
did their stuff. All of these riders
will be In the lists for the show.
P. & S. Bank Declares
3rd Dividend, 15 Pet.
J. L. Gault, receiver of the Far
mers and Stockgrowers National
bank, has received telegraphic ad
vice from the Comptroller of the
Currency at Wahington that his
recent recommendation for a third
dividend of 15 percent to the cred
itors of that bank has been" ap
proved. Checks covering this div
idend will be prepared promptly,
forwarded to the Comptroller for
his- signature and should be ready
for distribution about September 20.
With the former dividend of 40
percent released last September to
gether with the 15 percent disbursed
in February of this year, the pres
ent dividend of 15 percent makes a
total return to the depositors of
this bank of 70 percent which re
sult has been accomplished entirely
from the collection of the bank's as
sets, no part thereof having been
supplied for dividend purposes thru

H. E. Cool Family Has
Enviable Record in
4-H Club Work.
Lee, Charles Noteon, Vemor Sac
kett Club Visitors; Rodeo Presi
dent Presents Queen.
Probably the most outstanding
record for a single family in 4-H
club work in the county ia that of
the H. E. Cool family of lone. Four
young Cools, Mabel, Opal, Alvin and
Maude, have won more than 50 rib
bons in their several years of sheep
and calf club work, 12 of the rib
bons being firsts and one a cham
pionship ribbon.
Miss Mabel Cool, eldest of the
children, displayed the ribbons and
told of the work required to obtain
them, before the Lions club Monday
noon luncheon. Present also were
Opal and Maude, but Alvin was un
able to be present due to illness.
Mabel and Opal have been in club
work seven years, and Alvin and
Maude for five. Mabel, who one
year was beaten out by only two
points for the right to show at the
national 4-H club fair at Chicago,
will exhibit at the state fair this
week end.
Another Lions club guest was
Miss Dimple Crabtree, whom Lions
president C. J. D. Bauman cited as
another champion, having won the
election to be queen of the Rodeo
starting today. Queen Dimple is a
close neighbor of the Cools, the
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. H.
Crabtree. To her introduction by
Rodeo president Henry Aiken the
Lions responded with hearty ap
plause. It was a day of visitors at the
club meeting, with visitors provid
ing all of the program. Vernor
Sackett of Salem, who was present
with his brothers-in-law, Lee and
Charles Notson, sang two solos
which were well received. These
men were introduced by S. E. Not
son, father of the Notson boys and
Mrs. Sackett who are visiting in
Heppner Lee and Charles after an
absence of several years.
Lee, a member of the Lions club
in his home town, Logan, Iowa,
where he is photographer and ser
vice station operator, made a short
talk in lighter vein. Introduced by
his father as the small son of the
family some 30-odd years before,
Lee's talk was emphasized by the
impressive size of his 300-odd pound
physique. Charles, a Methodist
minister, who has been in the east
for several years is in Heppner with
his wife to spend about a month
before sailing for Indo-China to
take up work in the mission field.
The "star" performer of the pro
gram introduced by President Bau
man was Dwight Misner who told
entertainingly of a recent trip to
Yellowstone national park with Mrs.
Misner and Mr. and Mrs. Fred Man
kin, all of lone. Mr. Misner went
into detail as to how the transpor
tation and finances of the trip were
arranged, gave many interesting
highlights of the trip and consider
able description of the points of in
terest visited.
"Before starting on such a trip
one should have a big wheat crop,"
he said. "Or failing in this, It is
well to be on the good side of the
missus." He credited Mrs. Misner
with holding the purse-stringy and
Mr. and Mrs. Mankin with furnish
ing the transportation, telling It all
in a humorous manner. He was
somewhat disappointed in the num
ber of animals seen In the park,
having looked forward to the ani
mals as a special attraction. The
party saw but one herd of elk, a
herd of buffalo not much more in
teresting than a herd of cattle, said
the speaker and a number of
black, brown and grizzly bears. The
young of the grizzly, largest of bears
in the United States, weigh but
eight to fifteen ounces at birth, was
a bcllcve-lt-or-not cited.
A sight described as one of less
enjoyable nature, was the loading
Into an ambulance of several people
who had been badly Injured when
their car plunged over the bank of
the Yellowstone river. The accident
happened just below a beautiful
falls, and Mr. Misner surmised that
all the occupants of the car were
looking back at the falls, allowing
the car to go uncontrolled over the

All Children Present After 21 Years
to Celebrate 3!h Wedding
For the first time in 21 years all
the children of Mr. and Mrs. S. E.
Notson were at home Tuesday. The
occasion was the 39th anniversary
of the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Not
son which occurred near Dunlap,
Iowa, August 28, 1895. It was a jolly
housewarming for Morrow county's
district attorney and his wife at
their home on Gale street, featured
mainly by a large family gathering
and renewal of acquaintanceships.
Coming farthest were Charles, the
youngest son, with his wife, who
made a cross-continent trip from
Washington, D. C. They are stop
ping at home for a month before
sailing to west China to take up
work in the mission field on the bor

high school work at Heppner,
Charles was graduated from As
