Where the Teams Play Next Sunday
Heppner at Fossil, Condon at
Heppner CCC, Blalock at lone.
With the score tied nine-all at
the end of the ninth Inning, Hepp
ner's Wheatland leaguers pounced
on Jimmy Ogilvy, Condon chucker,
for seven hits and as many runs to
put the game on Ice in the tenth.
Both teams attempted to give away
the game several times. After tak
ing an early 5-run lead, Heppner
gave Condon a tally advantage In
the seventh, and It was anybody's
ball game until the last inning
Manager Fred Hoskins' gang
kept in the lead of the percentage
column by virtue of the win, while
CCC and Fossil were taking their
second games against lone and
Blalock, respectively, to share top
honors. Next Sunday Heppner will
journey to Fossil to see which can
hold the lead.
Lowell Turner took long-distance
hitting honors for the locals at
Condon, whamming out a circuit
clout with the bases unoccupied in
the third. It would have gone for
a home run in any ball park, going
high over the center fielder's head,
and by the time that gentleman had
got in calling distance of it, Turner
had crossed the plate.
Two snappy double plays helped
offset some of the looser moments.
In the fourth, Gordon Bucknum
took O'Rourke's hot line drive and
doubled Parrish off first base. The
Inning before, Sammy Baker on
short started a double on Akers'
grounder, throwing to Hess at sec
ond to catch Bucknum, Hesa re
laying to Burns at first to stop
Blankenship, who had allowed
but five hits, turned over the mound
to Ray Massey in the seventh, while
Ogilvy went the route for Condon.
He had little trouble of his own
making until the tenth when most
of the Heppner batsmen walked up
and clouted the first pitched ball
It was a bad day for third base
men on both sides, as errors at that
position accounted for most of the

FINE NUY EVENT
to Hear Combined Tal
ent of Schools.
JOINT BANDS HEARD
Musicale Climaxes Day's Activities
of County Schools Here; 500
Children Appear on Stage.
The gym floor covered with chil
dren and directors, and the audi
torium in front packed to capacity
with listeners, the crowd that gath
ered in the gym-auditorium Friday
evening for the county school music
festival was probably the largest
ever packed into a single building
in the county.
The big music event climaxed the
school May Day activities, which
included spelling and athletic con
tests. It went off smoothly, with
out a hitch, a feat which bespoke
much work on the part of the di
rectors, as in the final number
presenting the combined choruses
nearly 500 children were on the
stage at one time.
Grade school choruses were pre
sented In three divisions, lower,
intermediate and upper, with each
division singing a group of three
songs. High school choruses in
cluded girls', boys', and mixed
grpups, each of which sang three
songs. Mrs. E. F. Bloom directed
all the chorus numbers accompan
ied by Miss Juanita Leathers.
The highlight of the program
was probably the presentation of
the Irrigon and Heppner school
bands playing three numbers Joint
ly. Stan Atkin, Irrigon director,
directed two of the numbers, and
Harold Buhman, local director, led
the other. The initial number,
"Washington Post March," was
dedicated to Mrs. Lucy E. Rodgers,
superintendent, in recognition of
her effort in behalf of the event.
Special numbers included a folk
dance by the Boardman school, tap
dancing by the Lexington school,
rhythm band and fairy dance by
the Heppner school. Perfect order
was kept throughout, with the aud
ience showing appreciation of the
fine program after each number.
A large committee of teachers as
sisted in directing the children and
Stan Atkin Introduced the pro
gram, and he also awarded the
cups, ribbons and banners won in
the spelling and athletic contests.
CAMP FIRE GIRLS MEET.
Nakomls group, Camp Fire Girls,

and discussed new business. An

VACANT LOTS MUST SHINE;
EDICT MADE BY COUNCIL
All property holders must clean
up their vacant lots or the city
will have the work done and charge
it against the property. That is an
edict of the council made Monday
evening in connection with clean-up
day May 12. It was also announced
that two trucks will be on the job
that day to haul away free of
charge all rubbish placed at curbs
In proper containers.
If all the rubbish cannot be re
moved In the one day, the trucks
will be kept on the job until it is
removed, said Mayor Jeff Jones,
who renews his appeal for all or
ganizations and individuals to get
hehind the clean-up movement and
make the city shine.
Watermaster Orve Rasmus an
nounced the installation this week
of a siphon in the second well at
the forks of Willow creek, and wa
ter from the two wells was suffi
cient to again fill the reservoir. He
appealed for the development of
more water, however, for as soon
as Irrigation is resumed on a large
scale he was certain the present
supply would be Inadequate. The
matter is in the hands of the water
committee. It was discussed free
ly at the meeting, but no definite
action was taken.
That work of relaying the mile
and three-quarters of the main pipe
line down Willow creek, authorized
as a PWA project, will be held up
until after the middle of June, was
announced, due to Irrigating In the
alfalfa fields which must be crossed.
Discussion was had of changing
the approaches of the Willow creek
and Cox hill roads into town, and
But Not for Beauty
Emergency furrowing for blow
control. Two thousand acres were
treated In this way. This keeps
the soil at home, but for a long
time program, i farmers in this
area are going to Douglas county,
Wash., the first of next week to
see what is being done there.
TO MAKE JUNKET
Agricultural Agent Will Conduct
Large Group on Tour of Doug
las County, Wash.
On Monday and Tuesday, May 11
and 12, a caravan of Morrow and
Gilliam county farmers will tour
Douglas county. Wash., observing
blow control measures which have
been followed in that section. Ac
cording to word which has been
received from Waterville, that sec
toin was comparatively free from
blows this year due almost entirely
to the farming methods which men
In that section have used. Con
ditions in Morrow and Gilliam
counties this year have shown
clearly that the control of blows
is vital to continued farming on
the lighter lands. Much has been
done by individuals and by group
action, especially in the North Lex
ington Erosion Control district, but
admittedly, this work has been of
an emergency nature.
Last year the directing commit
tee of this district went to Water
ville to observe conditions and It
is due to this committee's opinion
of the value of that trip that the
tour this year has been arranged.
The tour proper will begin at 8
o'clock at the courthouse at Water
ville on Tuesday morning, May 12.
in order to be oh hand at this hour
those making the trip are planning
to stay in Wenatchee, Monday

Monday afternoon or evening. Af
ter tne tour on Tuesday all cars
can, of course, take any route they
wish. In most cases it will be pos
sible to arrive home some time Tu

one make this trip who possibly
can arrange to get away.
