Considerable loose play engen
dered by the raw weather was dish
ed out in Heppner's Wheatland
league opener with Blalock on Ro
deo grounds Sunday afternoon.
Bobbles proved most costly to the
locals who lost the game 8-6 after
deadlocking the visitors on earned
Contributing to the loss, however,
were sore pitching arms of Ray
Massey, starter, and Lowell Turner,
relief. The latter gave up the mound
in the last half of the seventh to
Rod Thomson who made his pitch
ing debut and did a fair job of
chucking at that.
Blalock was la the lead, 6-4, and
the bags were loaded with one away
when Thomson took the mound.
The first batsman to face him
knocked a roller into his glove. He
tossed the ball to cut off the run
ner at home and Catcher Al Massey
pegged the batter out at first, end
ing that threat with a neat double
Again in the eighth Blalock was
let down scoreless on another dou
ble play which helped Thomson out
of a hole. He had walked Kirby who
advanced on E. Miller's hit B. Mil
ler then flied out to Sprouls In right
field. Then Vertrees laid down a
grounder to Gilman at second. Gil
man pegged out Kirby at home and
again Al Massey cut the runner off
These nice fielding plays com
pensated considerably for looseness
at other times. Heppner's scores
came two in the first inning, one in
the fifth, one in the eighth and two
in the ninth. Blalock scored one in
the second, two in the fifth, two in
the sixth, one in the eighth and two
in the ninth.
It looked like Heppner might
stage a real rally in the ninth. Ev
ans first filed out to right field, then
consecutive two baggers by Thom
son and Turner, netted one run.
Turner in turn scored on A. Mas
Bey's grounder to Phifer at second
on which Catcher Massey was call
ed out on a close play at first Then
McRoberts and Hayes walked, but
a hot grounder by Bill Massey,
pinch-hitting for Gilman, was taken
at third by Mikkalo to force Mc
Roberts. Fossil, now the only undefeated
team who dumped Arlington,-last
year's champs, 5-2 Sunday, will be
Heppner's opponent next Sunday
when the locals journey to the
Wheeler county seat

District Attorney Makes Stirring
Address on Patriotic Educa
tion Before Lions Club.
An impassioned plea for preser
vation of the battleship Oregon fol
lowing a graphic word picture of the
part it played in winning the Spanish-American
war featured an ad
dress on patriotic education deliv
ered before the Monday Lions meet
ing by S. E. Notson, district attor
ney. Mr. Notson cited educational
trends, marked by special study at
University of Chicago and at Sarah
Lawrence college for girls in New
York, as indicating advancement in
teaching students to think. Think
ing students are the great need of
this day of voluminous propaganda
which is tending to tear down
American institutions, he said.
While not holding himself up as
an alarmist, Mr. Notson sad the ln
an alarmist, Mr. Notson said the in
propaganda in tearing down the
moral fabric of the nation is not to
be denied. Holding the United
States constitution as nearly a di
vinely inspired document be be
lieved its wisdom much to be pre
ferred to that of common street
corner haranguers. It is not enough
to teach students to read, but they
should be taught to read thought
fully, he declared, that they may
be enabled to grope their way thru
the maze of befuddling propaganda.
Leading up to his plea for the Or
egon, which he held to be a symbol
of American idealism as sacred as
the Washington monument or Fort
Sumpter, he described vividly events
causing the Spanish-American war,
the heroism and progress of its bat
tles, among which were the most
signal naval battles of history. That
war, he said, was an unselfish war
fought to bring relief to a distressed
neighboring people. The Old Ore
gon stands as a symbol of national
unselfishness which every school
boy and girl should learn to cherish.
He believed Governor Martin un
thoughtful in calling the old ship a
worthless hulk, and sanctioned the
move to make the battleship more
accessible. Every school boy and
girl of the state should be encour
aged to visit it and learn Its story,1,

William Vawter Crawford was
born at Flnley's Mill near Craw
fordsville, Linn county, this state,
March 9, 1868, being the first child
of Jasper V. and Elizabeth' N. (Dun
lap) Crawford. The place of birth
was named for his grandfather,
Philemon Vawter Crawford, whose
family and the Dunlap family were
among the early settlers along the
Calapooia river. It was here that
his mother was born. His father,
a native of Jefferson county, Indi
ana, came to Oregon with other
members of the family in 1851. They
settled temporarily at Scholl's Ferry
on the Tualatin river, moving to
Linn county near Halsey in 1853,
where the father became the first
postmaster of Crawfordsville which
he helped found.
Vawter was two years old when
his parents migrated to Waitsburg,
Wash. The arduous journey over
the trails of the time, made by horse
and wagon, required several days.
At Waitsburg and environs he grew
to young manhood, receiving his
education in the public school and
in the old Waitsburg academy.
While yet attending school he serv
ed his apprenticeship as printer in
the Waitsburg Times office, though
he found seasonal employment on
the farms, helped with cattle along
with his cousins Hollis and Otheo
Conover, and at times assisted his
father in the elder's painting and
carpentering business. While at
tending the academy he played on
the baseball team, and made pro
gress both as violinist and cornetist.
He early became a member of the
Waitsburg Christian church.
Shortly after going to Waitsburg,
an incident occurred which remain
ed indelibly on his memory. While
playing alpng a mill race close to
home, he fell Into the water. Others
had given him up for drowned after
more than an hour of resuscitation
efforts, but his mother would not
give in and her efforts finally re
While working In the Times office
he became acquainted with Otis
Patterson, then schoolmaster at
Waitsburg. Mr. Patterson evidenced
a warm friendship, and before leav
ing Waitsburg told Vawter that he
was coming to Heppner to take
over a newspaper and that as soon
as he got established he wanted
Vawter to come and work for him.
Vawter did not think seriously of
the matter until a short time after
wards when he received a letter
renewing the proffer, and he decid
ed to accept
He came to Heppner in March,
1889, then 21 years of age, and went
to work for Mr. Patterson on the
Gazette, for whom he worked inter
mittently for several years. Shortly
romance blossomed in his acquaint
anceship with Miss Cora Spencer,
daughter of John and Virginia
Spencer, whom he married Christ
mas day, 1890, at Eugene. She has
been his constant companion since.

Saturday evening, May 4. Plans
are being made for a cake auction
early marital career, bringing spas
modic employment, through which
he worked as store clerk and at
odd jobs while picking up a little
work at his trade. Toward the end
of this era he took a fling for a
time at the old Heppner Record
which he acquired from Thomas
Nelson, but the venture was not
successful and he gave it up for a
steady position again with the Ga
zette, the Record plant being moved
to lone for publication of the old
In 1898 Mr. Crawford was Induced
by friends to enter the race for
county clerk, in which race he was
successful, and he filled the posi
tion for eight years, holding office
at the time of construction of the
present courthouse in 1902. He gave
up the clerkship to accept the as
sistant cashiership of the old Bank
of Heppner, of which W. S. Whar
ton was then cashier. This posi
tion he filled until the bank was
consolidated with the First Nation
al bank in 1910.
Mr. Crawford then turned his at
tention to the newspaper field and
through support of friends he was
enabled to purchase the Heppner
Gazette from the then owner, Fred
Warnock. He ran the Gazette for
two years before completing a deal
with E. M. Shutt for the Times, and
consolidating the two papers in 1912.
He had been actively associated
with the business since except for
two years, 1915-16, when he took
over the position of cashier of the
Bank of lone. During that time the
paper was published by his sons,
Arthur and Spencer. In August,
1918, he took Speajsr into full part
nership in the business.
Shortly after coming to Heppner,
Mr. Crawford assisted in organiz
ing and for a time led a city band.
Throughout his residence here he
was active in the work of the Chris
tian church, of which his father
served as pastor for a number of
years, and for more than thirty
years he was superintendent of the
Sunday school and was an elder in
the ohurch from its beginning. He
was active both editorially and per
sonally In all movements which he
believed to be for progress of the
community. His public service in
cluded twenty-two years as clerk
of the school board for district No.
1, which position he declined to ac
cept two years ago because of fail
ing health. He was a member of
Heppner lodge A. F. & A. M., and
for many years held membership in
Royal Arch Masons and Knights of

Oregon State Editorial association,

Each of these enterprises had
made application for a part of the
