Warn Growers, Shippers
Against Adulterated Peas
A notice recently received at Or-
gon State college to be transmitted
through the extension staff to pea
growers of the state warns that
"Weevilly peas are regarded as
adulterated under the Federal food
and drugs act and producers and
canners should institute measures
to eliminate infested peas from
At present no spray or dust is
known that can be recommended
for general use in combattig the
weevil on growing peas, according
to Dr. Don C. Mote, station entom
ologist Control of the pests is thus
limited to prevention of Infestation
and fumigation of the dried peas.
Perhaps one of the greatest
sources of infestation, Dr. Mote
says, is the infested peas that are
left in the fields after harvest until
the weevils emerge and seek winter
quarters in the nearby fence rows
and woods. The elimination of this
source would aid materially in re
ducing the weevil Infestation the
following year, he believes.
Infestation of peas takes place in
the field by the adult weevils laying
their eggs on the surface of the de
veloping pods. After about 10 days
the eggs hatch and the grubs bur
row through the pod and into the
immature peas, which activity re
quires from two to three days. A
small dark spit forms at the point
where the grub enters the pea. The
weevils remain In the peas until the
adult stage has been reached, which
may require two months or more,
the adult weevil may then emerge
Shortly after the pea ripens or may
remain there over winter.
All plant material left on pea
fields is best plowed under, deeply
and cleanly, Immediately after har
vest to check the development of
the grubs in the green pods, and If
necessary It is well to harrow the
field to close the crevices between
clods, Dr. Mote recommends. -Such
plowing is not effective after the
weevils have reached the adult
stage, since they are able to make
their way to the soil surface.
Prompt and thorough fumigation
of all mature peas will kill grubs
and mature weevils and prevent
their emergence the following
spring. Directions for this process
may be obtained from county agri
cultural agents or from the state
C. M. Bentley, examiner of op
erators and chauffeurs from the of
fice of P. J. Stadelman, secretary
of state, will be In Heppner at the
court house from 9 a, m. to 5 p. m.,

and bath, completely
from Grant Wheeler, Umatilla and
Gilliam counties, who extended In
vitations to attend the various oth
er shows to be held in their coun
ties in the near future, among them
the Prairie City Round-Up and Gil
liam County fair this week end, the
Pendleton Round-Up next week end
and the Grant County fair, Sept 20
22, with its Heppner day on the
Jock Terry Honored.
All this denoted the good will of
the crowd. But one of the most im
pressive features of the day was an
exhibition ride by "Kenny" Depew,
this year's bucking champion, hon
oring Jack Terry, the two-time
champion who may be unable to
ride any more.
Throughout the three-day per
formance the Heppner school band
came in for its share of applause,
as it played without stint under the
direction of Harold Buhman. Many
were the compliments heard for this
brightly-clad 30-piece organization,
with Mr. Austin, the announcer,
adding his compliments many times.
Also throughout the three days,
Queen Dimple and her royal court
had a popular reign. Besides her
attendants, the Misses Beth Wright,
Irma Lane and Mary Cunha, pres
ent as honor guests were Queen
Shirley of the Pendleton Round
Up and attendants, the Misses Mar
garet Brosnan and Ruth Porter,
and as honor attendant to Queen
Dimple, Miss Letha Carter of Long
The queenly court, Rodeo and
Round-Up officials were all pre
sented in Saturday's grand entry
in which they rode past the stands.
Also introduced to the stands was
Diamond, the best trained pick-up
pony in eastern Oregon, if not in
the world, and his rider, Clyde Bu
chanan of Prairie City, who with
Jerry Brosnan, picked up the Ro
deo bucking broncs. Other honored
guests were Earl W. Snell of Ar
lington, candidate for secretary of
state, R. E. Bean of Freewater and
Jack Allen of Pendleton, both can
didates for state senator, and Moth
er Mary Brown of Condon, an ear
ly Morrow county pioneer; also
Marjorie (Clark) Ridings, queen of
the first Heppner Rodeo.
Cody Dodson Game Cowboy.
There were 60 entrants in the lists,
all the way from Texas to Canada,
including some of the country's best
tophands. Cody Dodson, last year's
Rodeo bucking champion, showed
the stuff of which cowboys are
made when he entered the lists with
a broken hand which necessitated
wearing a splint He went up on
Baby Doll the first day, and scratch
ed the outlaw as long as he stayed,
but it wasn't very long.
And Cody wasn't alone in show
ing intestinal fortitude. Bill Bosley
received a couple of cracked ribs
when he was thrown from Roan
Gurdane in the bareback riding on
Thursday. In spite of that, he qual
ified in the bucking contest Friday
and got into the semi-finals on Rhea
Creek. Bosley who has followed
shows for many years is working
for B. F. Swaggart near Lexington.
Of the 17 riders who entered the
bucking contest, nine made the
semi-finals, Kenneth Depew, Guy
Cash, Lloyd Depew, Rock Rich
mond, Lyle Simmelink, Buster Tip
petts, Buck Tiffin, Bill Bosley and
Herb Owens, of whom five made
the finals. Herb Owens on Frank
lin D and Buster Tippetts on Baby
Doll were the other final riders be
sides the winners. Showing that
the riders were the class of the
countiy, none was thrown in the
finals though the horses were plen
Winners in the bareback riding
were eliminated each day, leaving
but three to ride Saturday. Glenn
Rutherford on Weinie, Buster Tip
pett on Lady and Duff McKitric on
Chubbie, who vied Saturday, were
all thrown and the prize money
was split three ways between them.
Swaggart Horses Place.
In most of the races Depew had
the edge, but Frank, Gerald, Hazel
and Lew Swaggart got a good share
of the swag. The Swaggart horses
won the pony express one day, the
relay one day and the Morrow
county derby besides placing in
other races. Runners up and win
ners in some of the races were May
& Philbrick of Fossil, and Harry
Dick, Ike Arthur and other Indians
Two feature races were the two-year-old
race Friday and the con
solation race Saturday. The two-year-old
race was won by Kenny
Depew, with W. E. Francis second,
and F. W. Turner third. In plac
ing third Turner's young mare from
the B. F. Swaggart stock, run

poor start It showed better in the
consolation race Saturday when it
won over horses entered by Gerald
and Frank Swaggart.
Adding considerable color to Sat
urday's show was the Indian war
bonnet race, run by a group of
Umatilla Indians in full war re
galia riding bareback. Ike Arthur,
Harry Dick and McKinley Williams
finished first, second and third re.
Local Boys Rope Good.
Not the least enjoyable of the
events by a long ways was the ama
teur calf roping contest, in which
many local boys got Into the mon

A Man's Real Success.
"A man's life consisteth NOT In
the ABUNDANCE of the things
which he possesseth." Luke 12-15.
Or, to put it in another way,
REAL SUCCESS DOES NOT NEC
ESSARILY CONSIST IN MERE
MATERIAL WEALTH OR POSSESSIONS.
Disappointed and destitute, a
great many Christian families are
considering themselves failures.
And that is because they have fallen
into the habit of this era of regard
ing material possessions as SUC
CESS. BUT BE EVERLASTINGLY
SURE OF ONE THING: Wherever
a home exists, in common love and
loyalty, and in real devotion to Je
sus Christ and Christian standards,
there is SUCCESS! To make a real
Christian home is a higher achieve
ment than to make a fortune. Civ
ilization at its very best is really
just this: a life wherein every man
may dwell under his own roof, en
joying the respect and affection of
his family and the confidence of his
