HEPPNER, OREGON, T HURSDAY, Oct. 11, 1934 ONITE TO COMBAT STRIKEEFFECTS Malheur and Grant Take Lead in Organizing Producers LOSSES HELD HEAVY Activities of Radicals Cause De lay in Shipments; Would Present Solid Front- Ontario Eastern Oregon produc ers and shippers this week took steps to combat the wave of rad icalism which they assert is seek ing to gain a foothold in the Oregon country. Sponsored by leading growers and shipping men of Malheur county, the Oregon Producers and Shippers association has been organized in this area, and a call is being sent out to growers, shippers and civic leaders throughout the state, urging them to effect similar organizations in every county of Oregon. The association will be non-partisan and non-political. The Malheur group is sending W. IL Perkins, for many years a news paper man in various parts of the stute, to assist other communities in organization work and to carry on a campaign of publicity in be half of the new association. H. C. Boyer, one of the leading shippers of Ontario, has been elect ed chairman of the Malheur county group. Members of the board of directors include O. G. Luehrs, E. C. Van Petten, E. M. Graig, all of Ontario; Dick Tensen and C. C. Hunt of Nyssa; Deane Goodman of Juntura. Other sections of the county also will be represented on the board. Herman Oliver of John Day, pres ident of the Oregon Horse and Cat tle Owners association, and one of the leading stockmen of eastern Oregon, is chairman of the Grant county group. "The disastrous effects of the longshoremen's strike in Portland this past summer has convinced us that the producers and shippers of the up-state counties of Oregon must band together as a means of self-preservation," said Mr. Boyer, as spokesman for the new associa tion. "That strikes, fomented by a very small group of radicals, cost the people of this state at least $50, 000,000, and the producers and ship pers of Eastern Oregon were among the heaviest losers. "Miles removed from the scene of the conflicts between labor and employers, we have no direct inter est in the source of their quarrels. But when these disputes result In conditions which endanger our wel fare and the welfare of all of Ore gon, we believe that every effort should be made to prevent their re currence. "During the 83 days of the Port land strike this past summer, our wool remained in our warehouses, with added costs of storage and in surance and much of it has not yet been sold. In countless instances orders for our grain in the world markets were cancelled, while other growers were forced to pay more than two cents per bushel to have their wheat trans-shipped to Puget Sound where it was loaded for transport trade. "In many instances our eastern Oregon growers and shippers suf fered huge financial losses, and because we were unorganized we were powerless to present a solid front in demanding proper protec tion. ADD SHIPERS AND PODUCERS Frank Swaggart of eLna has been named temporary chairman to head the organization in Morrow county.

AND MRS. GRAY GO TO CALIFORNIA Five Years' Successful Practice Ended Here; Have Well Wishes of Many Friends. Dr. and Mrs. A. B. Gray complet a five years' residence in Heppner Monday, when they departed for Doris, Cal., to make their home in the future. The Grays leave Hepp ner accompanied by the well wishes of a host of friends, made during their residence here in which time Dr. Gray established a large prac tice in his field of medicine. At Doris, Dr. Gray will assume the position of physician for four lumber companies, besides taking care of such private practice as he may be called upon to serve. The position comes as a recognition of the fine reputation he has gained in his chosen profession. ' Coming to Heppner five years ago from Denver, Col., Dr. and Mrs. Gray were total strangers to this community. Their gracious and charming personalities soon gained them a warm place In the heart3 of the community, and success in his profession soon rewarded the doc tor with an ever-growing practice. From small beginnings, the doc tor and his good wife, an ever con stant help-mate, (cquired an out worn residence property and re modeled and renovated it, making one of the nicest residence proper ties in the city. Their fine flower garden, a monument to their am bition and Industry, is one of the show places of Heppner. Though their time was little given to civic or social affairs, they con tributed much to the community. Dr. Gray is rated among the 7 best chess players of the United States. In pursuit of this hobby, he fostered a wide interest and love of the game among many people of the city, be ing the promoter of the Heppner Chess an Checker club which had a popular career. Chess was not the only avocation to claim the moments of leisure which the doctor enjoyed from his profession. He had no mean poetic ability, and his "Gray's Lines in Verse" which appeared in book form in the recent presidential campaign had widespread distribu tion. In addition he devoted some time to composing cross-word puz zles- Mr. and Mrs. Chas.

S. E. Notson, father of the Not son boys, received a letter from Charles this morning, in which was told of a visit to the Grand Coulee dam site and a fishing trip to a lake beyond the Grand Coulee. The fishing trip netted 17 nice trout, and the journey, taking them through the heart of the dam project, gave a wonderful view of this stupen dous government undertaking. Re turning after night, the lights about the dam made a very impressive sight which will be more impress ive as additional lights appear in the course of construction, Charles wrote. Personal Experiences Nome Fire Told Heppner Folks Mr. and Mrs. E. F. Bloom have received an interesting letter from Nome, Alaska, in which is told some personal experiences of Mr. Bloom's brother and family in the large conflagration there recently. Mrs. William Bloom, formerly Miss Alice Dyer who taught in the Bur ton Valley school in this county four years ago, is the communi cant. "Bill" is the husband and brother, and "Bart" their year-old baby boy. The letter, dated at Nome Sept. 19, follows: "We have written one description but I thought perhaps you might be interested in our personal ad ditions. "I had been washing clothes, Bart was sleeping, when the fire siren blew. It has long been the custom for everyone here to rush for the fire because this horrible thing has long been feared. When I found it was the Golden Gate hotel I be gan to make preparations to move out. Altho the building was clear at the other end of town from us, we had mentioned the fact when we were staying there that if it ever caught fire no matter where we were living we would begin to pack up. I fixed enough food for Bart for a day and a half, packed his little spare bag and wakened him to dress him in his warmest clothes. "By this time Bill was home to warn me to start getting our things together. Altho the the hadn't spread yet he could see that unless the wind died down the whole town was doomed. "I sat down for a minute to gath er my wits together and to try to remember the things mother had ASKS COURT RECOVER ON CLERK'S DEFICIT Pomona Grange Says Audit Shows Money Not Paid to County.

Mr. Corley was brought to the hospital several days ago in an unconscious condition, having been found lying across the saddle of his horse, with a broken leg, on the Neill Doherty ranch in the sand country north of lone. It was believed he had suf fered a stroke of apoplexy which caused him to fall from his horse. He never regained consciousness. Mr. Corley worked for John Hanna on Hinton creek for several years and was quite well known here. He is an uncle of Walter Corley of lone. Funeral arrangements in charge of Phelps Funeral home will be held on tomorrow afternoon at 2:00 o'clock at Masonic ceme tery with short graveside services conducted by J. R. Benton. Mr. Corley was a native of Illin ois and came to Oregon when about 20 years of age and resided in this state since. He has made his home in this community for the past 30 years. He is survived by a brother, Dock Corley of Pendleton, and one sister, residing in California. Born to Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Bur kenbino, Saturday, an 8 pound son, Albert Faye. cautioned me to do in case of fire. Bill, of course, had to go back to help at the hotel and altho I thot I was calm as could be I realize now that I was scared stiff. First I dumped all Bart's clothes and blan kets on the bed and tied them up in the top blanket; then our clothes, shoes, silverware, personal effects even to pictures and kitchen uten sils. I even took Bart's bed to pieces and packed up the groceries. When Bill finally came back, build ings in our block were burning, so we carried the things (including me wasning from the line) to the beach where we covered them with wet blankets. Then I took Bart in his little cart and started for the hospital, which at that time seemed the safest place. Bill stayed to fin ish at the house and to help others. As soon as the fire got near our shack he could see that our things were not going to be safe so he car ried them way on down the beach where he finally had to soak all the blankets to cover them and then shovel sand over that to protect them. He would carry as much as could about fifty yards and then run back for more, and every time the things he left behind would be burning when he got back. He also helped two women with their be longings and worked there all af ternoon with the flames right on his coat tails all the time. There was a time for about two hours that they were surely between the devil and the disip blue ea as they were right on the water's edge complete ly cut off by a wall of flames. "We saved practically everything. (Contnued on Pas Four) RECENT WEDDING EVENT OF INTEREST Marvin R. Wightman and Miss Claudlne Humphreys United in Portland Ceremony.

A horde of heavy Buckaroos over whelmed the light, fast Fighting Irish of Heppner high school in a spectacular game on Rodeo field Saturday afternoon. The final score was 30-0, but it was not until after Coach Mark Temple's lemon-yellow and green clad big boys had badly battered the stubborn Irish defense that they were able to score freely. Heppner took the opening kick off and went to mid-field on three successive first-downs, before they were forced to kick after a 15-yard holding penalty had been assessed against them by Referee Lind strom of lone. Pendleton then opened up its attack, featured by drives by Lassen and Graybeal, which netted their first touchdown. They battled hard to score again in the second quarter and at the half the score stood 12-0. In the third quarter, soon after receiving the ball, the Bucks pro duced an effective end run on which Graybeal ran unmolested for 40 yards and a touchdown. Another time Graybeal receive a Heppner punt in midfleld and raced through a broken field to a touchdown, do ing some spectacular dodging on the way. The last touchdown late in the final quarter was made from close to Heppner's goal line, only after a determined Irish stand had made several plays ineffective. Early in the game, Riley Mun kers, Irish quarterback, was taken from the game with injuries, being replaced by Don Allstott, who made several good gains. Bulwark of the Heppner offense and defense was Floyd Jones, fullback, though Gilman's blocking and the all-round effective work of Bill Schwarz at halfback positions were notewor thy. Raymond Drake, who played through the game up til the last few seconds, was plenty effective at center in spite of torn body mus cles for which he was heavily ban daged. Heppner made its only real scor ing threat late in the last quarter when a long pass from Jones just passed through the hands of La Verne Van Marter, end, in the cor ner of the field up against the Pen dleton goal line. It was a nice try, and came mighty close to being good. Pendleton failed to convert the try for extra point on all of their touchdowns. The game was marked by the call ing of many penalties on both teams. One of the largest crowds to witness a game here in years was present. Coach Winter's boys have their next game here tomorrow with Athena. Land Bank Farm Sales Break All-Time Record Pacific northwest farm land Is in eager demand this fall! The Fed eral Land bank of Spokane broke an all-time record during the past month by selling acquired farms to the value of $308,606 or an average of $10,000 a day it is reported by Ward K. Newcomb, vice president. This exceeds by $19,148 the largest previous month's volume ever at tained by the land division of the bank. Due to the favored position which northwest agriculture occupies this year, the land bank has received an unprecedented flood of Inquiries, many from farmers in drouth-hit sections of the middlewest who are seeking more dependable locations. Some of these applicants already have pulled stakes' and are call ing in person at the bank's head' quarters with their belongings load ed on trucks, all set to move hope, fully onto a new place In the north west As a cooperative, borrower-owned institution, the Land bank is an un willing possessor of the properties it has been forced to take over by foreclosure. It is therefore con ducting a series of special sale of ferings at many local points in re sponse to this growing call for northwest acreage. "We want to return our acquired farms to individual management just as promptly as suitable buyers can be found, Mr. Newcomb ex. plains. "Improvement in farm earn ing power and active demand for land at rising values makes the present time opportune both for the bank to accomplish this purpose and for buyers to make good in vestments." Land bank-owned farms are of fered at fair prices and on favor able terms to applicants who show reasonable prospects of making good. Dr. Rice, Cottage Grove, to Open Offices Here Dr. Raymond Rice of Cottage Grove was in Heppner Sunday with Mrs. Rice to look over the local field, and has decided to open of fices here in the First National bank building.

NEW MARKETS NEED SAYS JDEL DUNNE Republican Candidate for Governor Speaks Be fore Local Group. WOULD SLAP BONDS State Must Fay aa It Goes to Get on Sound Basis; Federal Money Comes at loan. Senator Joe E. Dunne, broad-as-he-is-long republican candidate for governor, rested over night In Heppner Saturday in his arduous campaign after speaking before a local audience in the Elks hall. A "happy warrior" in every sense as he told of the good reports received in his behalf on every hand, Sen ator Dunne spent the day in Mor row county meeting folka at lone, Lexington and Rhea creek where he addressed an afternoon meeting of the grange. He departed early Sunday morning for Portland where he expected to close his cam paign. Highlights of Senator Dunne's address here were the "pay as you go," and a renovized state depart ment of agriculture planks of his platform. The jovial senator show ed a real understanding of the sit uation confronting the agricultural industry of eastern Oregon, and stressed the need of new markets and higher prices to put this in dustry on a paying basis again. Senator Dunne was introduced by his legislative colleague, Repre sentative J. O. Turner. The meet ing was opened by S. E. Notson, chairman of the county republican central committee, and turned over to C. J. D. Bauman, south Heppner precinct committeeman. Introduced were R. E. Bean of Milton, repub lican candidate for state senator, and George N. Peck, candidate for county commissioner. Mr. Bean cited his tenure as county commis sioner in Umatilla county, In which more than a million dollars of the county's indebtedness was paid off to put it in a sound financial con dition, as his recommendation for the senatorship, and as an endorse ment of Senator Dunne's platform. The hard-working republican gubernatorial candidate who drives his own automobile and makes an unbelievable number of speeches a day, showed plenty of vim. and little sign of weariness in his ap pearance here. The people of Oregon must awaken to the fact that Oregon problems must be solved by Ore gon, the senator declared. No one was ever known to borrow himself out of debt, and while federal funds coming to the state, all In the form of loans, may have accomplished a good purpose, the state cannot go borrowing indefinitely. The time has come when the state should cease borrowing and get on a "pay as you go" basis. We shouldn t kid ourselves," he said. "We will pay the bill for Bon neville dam, and all the other pub lic works which are being builded with federal funds. ... If elected I will veto every measure which comes to me calling for the Issu ance of new bonds." Senator Dunne reiterated his pri mary campaign pledge that any sales tax measure passed by the leg islature would be passed only over his veto. The people of Oregon have expressed themselves on this matter and it is settled so far as he is concerned, he said. The state department of agri culture is nothing but a depart ment of inspectors," he declared In advocating a reorganization of that department to make it as Intended, a department of helpfulness to ag riculture. Efforts of the depart ment should be used toward the extension of markets for Oregon products; In helping the farmer raise more and better crops; and in the proper grading of farm prod ucts to facilitate their marketabil ity, he believed. He called attention to the fact that the office of governor is pure ly an administrative office. The governor cannot pass laws, or en croach upon the duties of the courts. A governor can, however, see that the affairs of the state are administered in a business-like and progressive manner, safeguarding the rights of all the people. He de clared with Abraham Lincoln that it is time to return to a "govern-! ment of the people, by the people, ana ior me people. He gave a short biographical sketch showing that from an or phaned lad of nine years, he had battled his own way as one of the common people, and pointed to his public record to show that his every act had been in their behalf.
