WRIGHT 54-YEAR RESIDENT Funeral Rites Here Today for Esteemed Pioneer Farmer-Stockman. WAS BORN IN OREGON Parent Among Earliest Settlers on Clackamas County; Came to Present Home at Age of 12. Funeral services are being held from the Christian church at 2 o' clock this afternoon for Anson E. Wright, pioneer stockmen of the Hardman section, who died at the farm home in Hay canyon early Tuesday morning. Arrangements are in charge of Phelps Funeral home. Joel R. Benton of Fort Ben ton, Mont, former Christian min ister here, will officiate. Interment will he in the I. O. O. F. cemetery at Hardman with Rhea Creek grange, of which the deceased was one of the organizers, in charge of the commitment service. Mr. Wright died suddenly follow ing a short illness. Anson Evans Wright was a native Oregonlan and one of the oldest residents of the Hardman section. He was born in Clackamas county, February 10, 1860, the son of Al bert and Julia (Berry) Wright who came to that county in 1853, being among the earliest settlers of the section. Mr. Wright was but twelve years of age when his parents moved to the territory now included In Mor row county. Here he received his education in the public schools, growing to manhood in his chosen occupation of wool grower. In 1881 he started in business for himself on a small scale, and through the years increased his holdings to among the largest in Morrow coun ty. He had retained the home place since the beginning. It is situated three miles north of Hardman in Hay canyon. The marriage of Mr. Wright and Miss Ida Jane Knighten, daughter of Isaac and Rebecca (McBee) Knighten, occurred at Eight Mile center on December 29, 1886. To gether they acquired one of the better farm homes of the county, and reared their family. Mrs. Wright preceded her husband in death. Surviving are three sons, Clyde, Raymond and Walter, of Heppner, and three daughters, Mrs. Maude Rugg, Heppner; Mrs. Myrtle Clubine, Portland, and Mrs. Nellie Kruger, Heppner. He Is also sur vived by seven grandchildren, and one sister, Mrs. Effle Gilliam of Heppner. Mr. Wright was always a pro gressive citizen, a loving father and kindly neighbor. He was ever gen erous in money and work for ev erything of community benefit He saw the transition of this section of the country through 54 years, while himself contributing largely toward the transition. No higher tribute can be paid him than was said by one who knew Mr. Wright throughout most of his residence here. He said, "Anson Wright never said anything bad about any one. If he couldn't say something good, he never said anything." In the passing of Mr. Wright, the county has lost one of the few re maining pioneers whose estimable work will be better told by the passing years will pay to their memory. City Trucks Continue Raid on Town Rubbish City trucks were continuisg haul ing operations today in the process of cleaning up the city which start ed Tuesday. In accordance with the council's edict, the city clean-up crews have taken almost every movable object of junk, and tin can piles and other rubbish piles have been removed from the local landscape. In one instance the wrath of Cind was brought down upon the city powers when the crew hauled off an om automobile. The owner had used the car for drlvlne a wnorl. saw. It looked like junk to the crew, however, and so took the course of all such. Good cooperation was given on the part of citizens, generally, and me results so iar are pleasing the eye. to BROTHERS FROM CANADA. M. D. Clark, pioneer Heppner merchant, is enjoying a visit from two brothers and a nephew who live In Canada.

FARMERS MAKE TRIP INTO NORTH 26 Morrow and Gilliam Men See New Forming Practices In Douglas County, Twenty-six men from Morrow county and four from Gilliam coun ty made the trip to Waterville on Monday and Tuesday of this week to see the practices being followed in that locality for the prevention of soil blowing. Waterville is the county seat of Douglas county. That county has an average rainfall running about two inches less than the average rainfall In Morrow county. Their soil conditions vary much as do those In Morrow county, the soil getting heavier in the north end of Douglas county whereas In Mor row county it gets heavier as one goes to the south. In the blow area their soil, in general, is light er than ours. Despite their lighter soil and lower rainfall, they have achieved a control of blows which is a revelation to anyone who has not seen trashy summerfallow on a large scale. From the standpoint of our Morrow county farmers the encouraging thing about the tillage methods being folowed in Douglas county Is that our equipment is very much the same as theirs. In their blow area they are using the disk plow exclusively. This type of plow, with the revolving rod weed er, are about the only two tools that they use in preparing and handling their summerfallow. In our county the rod weeder is stand ard equipment on almost all of our ranches in the blow area and prob ably more than half of our land in that area is handled by disk plows. In Douglas county, however, their drills are of the disk type with a considerable part of the land being handled with deep furrow disk drills. They find that this type of drill works excellently in the heavy trash which they are main taining on the surface of the land. The basic principle of their con trol of blows, however, is the fact that they spread their straw and leave all of the trash on top. Al most any drill equipment that could be arranged to work through this trash would be satisfactory. Certainly no finer hospitality could be accorded any group than was given our men by the Douglas county farmers. Arrangements for handling our tour were made by Harold Simonds, Douglas county agent Mr. Simosds and about 12 Douglas county farmers met our delegation at the court house in Waterville at 8 o'clock Tuesday morning. Our delegation was load ed Into Douglas county cars for the tour. In this way each car was driven by a local man who could explain things between stops as we went along. At noon the Douglas county wheat men and the business men were joint hosts to our dele gation at a luncheon in Waterville. After the luncheon a round-table discussion, lasting until 2:30, clar ified any points about which our group had questions. At 2:30 the meeting broke up and arrange ments were made, thru the cour tesy of the Waterville business men for a guide to conduct as many of our group as wished over the Grand Coulee dam. Those making the trip from Mor row county were R. B. Rice, Olney Saling, Alec Lindsay, William Do- herty, Cornelius Melville, John Dit ty, O. W. Cutsforth, Ernest L. Smith, Gus McMillan, Charles Mar quardt, Joe Belanger, Lon McCabe, Lon McCabe, Jr., Norman Nelson, Sam McMillan, Die Smith, Rob ert Smith, the two Timm brothers, Mrs. Peter Timm, Lee Beckner, J. O. Klncald, E. R. Heliker, Wally Hayes, Millard Rodman and Geo. N. Peck. The group from Gilliam county consisted of Russell McKennon, county agent, William Hill, Johs Weatherford and Mr. Chllds. Mrs. Frank Whetstone Was Prominent Rebekah Mrs. Lillle Whetstone, wife of Frank Whet3tone, son of the late N. S. Whetstone of this city, died at her home in Pendleton, Saturday. She had been a resident of Pendle ton since 1882 and was prominent in civic and fraternal circles, hav ing been president of the Rebekah assembly for Oregon in 1921. She is survived by her husband, a daughter, Mrs. Ora Hamilton of Pendleton a grand daughter, Mrs. William Breding of Walla Walla great grand daughter, Urdean Breding of Walla Walla; a brother, Edward Baker of Pendleton, and two half brothers, Carl and Hugh Baker of Kansas.

ACTIVITY LIVELY N WOOL MARKET Clips Moving Readily at 222 to 36 Cents; Out side Buyers Here. YEARLING EWES, $7.50 Demand Strong for Breeder Stock; 25,000 Lambs Contracted at 1 to 8 '4 Cents; Shearing On. With the shearing season now at its peak, Heppner has been the meeting place this week for wool growers and buyers, and active sell ing has been reported. Wool of un determined volume has moved at prices ranging from 22 to 26 cents, 2500 yearling ewes were sold at $7.50 to Washington interests, and 25,000 lambs moved at from 7 to 84 cents. Brady & Hartin and Pete Slevin are reported as selling wool at the top price, both having wool that was wanted by Oregon mills. The Brady & Hartin clip went to Port land Woolen mills. Among buyers active in the local market are Harold and Henry Cohn, C. W. McNamer, W. L. Blakely, lo cal men representing outside firms, also E. J. Burke of Portland and J. Good who has been assisting Mr. Blakely as Burke representative; M. J. Clancy of Boston, represent ing Rosenthal Bros.; E. A. Ludwig, representing the Pacific Cooperative Woolgrowers, and H. B. Enbach, formerly president of the Nation al Wool Marketing association, rep resenting Eisemann, Inc., of Bos ton. Indications are that most of the wool will be sold in this section with the completion of shearing, with a general tendency shown by growers to sell. A wool shortage is reported to still exist nationally, but the uncertainty of the government's continuing CCC work, one of the heaviest outlets for woolen prod ucts, is a depressing factor on the market. The lamb crop of this section was reported as extremely light this season, causing an extra strong de mand for good yearling breeding ewes. DEMOCRAT OFFICER HERE. Lela Ravenscroft of Pendleton, vice president of the Young Demo cratic club for the second Oregon district, was a visitor in Heppner Tuesday. GRANGE COUNCtt, TO MEET. Morrow County Pomona grange council will meet at Irrigon on Sat urday, May 16. A pot-luck dinner will be served at noon. CONTROL ORGANIZED FOR NEW CROP PROGRAM A meeting of all the community committees to discuss the agricul tural conservation program and to organize the county association was held yesterday in the county agent's office. E. R. Jackman, extension specialist in crops, was here from Corvallis to discuss the latest de velopments. Of interest to all men In the wheat section will be the definite as surance that in addition to the class I payment, which is the large pay ment, farmers who plant crested wheat grass to comply will be eligi ble for a maximum small payment of $1.00 per acre for all wheat grass seeded. Another ruling which has just been released deals with the trashy summer fallow. Under this regu lation where a man spreads all of his straw with a straw spreader without either pasturing or burn ing it, and handles his summer fal low in such a way that trash is left on top, he will be eligible for a class II payment amounting to 50c an acre for such summer fallow. It should be borne In mind that both the trashy summer fallow payment and tne payment Tor seeding crest ed wheat grass are part of the class II payment. It is still Impossible to say exactly what the class I, or large payment, will amount to per acre, xnis information is expect ed at any time. The three members of each of the community committees and the al ternate member of each committee were at the meeting yesterday when the entire plan was rviewed and new information explained. It Is inevitable that there should be a good deal of confusion as to Just wnat constitutes compliance for grant. It would be advisable for everyone who needs additional in formation to discuss his own set-up witn nis nearest community com' mltteeman or to drop in at the county agent's office the next time he is In town. The board of directors for the new program is made up of the chairmen of the nine community committees. These nine men yes terday elected the county commit tee, which corresponds to the old allotment committee, a secretary and treasurer, and discussed the methods to be followed In getting work sheets signed and In checking compliance. The county commit tee elected consists of E. H. Miller, Lexington, chairman; George N. Peck, Lexington, vice-chairman; FOSSIL WINS, 10-0 AGAINST LOCALS Condon Beats CCC's in Fast 3-2 Game; Ladies to be Admitted Free Next Sunday.

Next Sunday will be ladies day at Rodeo field, when all ladies will be admitted free to the Wheatland league game between Heppner and Camp Heppner CCC's, announces Gordon Bucknum, business mana ger. The teams are tied in per centage of wins, each having won two games and lost one. A hard battle is expected. Heppner took a 10-0 trouncing at Fossil last Sunday. The scorebook hasn't been located, but 'tis said two regulars were absent most of the game. Lowell Turner wasn't on deck to handle first base ,and Manager Fred Hoskins officiated at that position. Millard Rodman, second baseman, didn't show up un til the seventh Inning. Though the locals touched Kelsay for nine hits, they were unable to group them to count Fossil was given credit for five earned runa McRoberts at third was reported as turning in a nice performance for the lo cals. In one of the best games of the season Condon beat Camp Hepp ner 3 to 2 at Rodeo field. The game was featured by the heavy hitting of Dean, first sacker for the C's and by the wonderful defense of both teams. Dean poled out a tre mendous homer that cleared the fence with plenty to spare and also connected for two hard dou bles. On his last appearance at bat he lined a ball that would have gone for another homer if it had not been directly at the fielder. Ogilvy and Shepherd, the opposing pitchers, were in mid-season form and only Issued one pass apiece. Sullivan who pitched the ninth In ning for the C's struck out two of the three men to. face him. Health Project Ends For Lack of Workmen E. A. Nutter of Pendleton, dis trict supervisor for the WPA-health agencies priwy program, reported when in town Tuesday that the pro ject under way here would be closed down today. Lack of men to do the work was given as the reason. All applications already made would be filled by today, he said. Frank Saling, Lexington, third member of the committee; H. D. Rutledge, Irrigon, alternate; Joe Belanger, county agent, secretary, and Madge Thomson, treasurer. In view of the fact that those who comply for a grant under the new program by plowing under grain as a green manure crop will he aoing this In a short time, the board of directors authorized the county committe to use whatever methods they saw fit to urge a speedy sign-up of work sheets. It should be clearly understood that in the new program there is no contract and that the signing of a work sheet binds neither the farm er nor the government to any pro gram. Tne work sheet merely sets forth the situation on a man's place in 1935 which forms a basis for determining the practices whicn he has followed to comply for a grant These work sheets must, however, be filled out before the application for a grant can be made. It is therefore highly important that each farmer in the county fill out one of these work sheets as quickly as possible, regardless of whether he knows at the present time what he intends to do for com pliance or whether he intends to comply for a grant at all. It would materially speed up this sign-up if each man would drop into the county agent's office the next time he is in town and go over his work sheet In checking compliance where a man intends to disk or plow down a green manure crop, he should first have the crop which he Intends to disk down inspected by a com munity committeeman. Of course, after the green manure crop has been turned under it will be neces sary for a supervisor to measure the acreage turned down. New Highway Signs Direct Motorists Here Motorists passing through Hepp- aer will henceforth have little dif ficulty In finding the road they wish to take out of town. Prominent, standard highway intersection signs were placed last week at the cor ner of Main and May streets by state nignway crew. The new signs Indicate the Oregon-Washington highway and the Heppner-Spray road, with mtleaee markers showing distances to prin cipal points on eacn.

Phillips of Burns, Roy W. Ritner of Pen dleton, R. A. Tull of La Grande, and Phil Yates of Wasco.

He said he believed in adequate old age pensions, but con sidered the Townsend plan ImpoS' sible of accomplishment. While here he attended sessions of the Masonic convention. IT STRIKES AGAIN. Not long ago promise was made In these columns that the town clock in the courthouse tower would again be in operation. The prom ised event took place this week when George Hayden came In from the mountain home near Hardman and started the chronometer to clicking, and yes striking. The sound of the bell tolling off the hour has been welcome music to old-time residents who said the town was not the same while the clock was mute. ATTENDING SYNOD. Rev. Ralph V. Hinkle Is attend ing an Episcopal synod meeting at Yosemlte and will not be In Hepp ner for services Sunday. The next services will be held here Sunday, May 24. MORE PARKING IS LIONS' OBJECT Would Use Vacant Lots on Main Street to Relieve Congestion; Bloom Issues Warning. Increased parking space for Heppner's business district is the object of action started at Monday's Lions luncheon. C. J. D. Bauman, sheriff, suggested the idea of ob taining permission to clear off gome vacant lots where cars might park, all day, free, thus relieving the congestion that so often exists, es pecially on Saturday evenings. Act ing on the suggestion, the club nam ed as a committee Gus Nikander and John Anglin to seek permis sion to use the lots and investigate the amount of work needed to put them in shape. Edward F. Bloom, school superin tendent, addressed the club voicing a warning against high power bus iness college and correspondence school salesmen. Parents of grad uates should be especially watchful for the salesmen at this season, and guard against spending money with any school that does not have prop er qualifications. He offered to sidering spending money with a assist anyone who might be con school of which he might not be certain. Mr. Bloom said parents and graduates should be especially wary of any school which promises cer tain employment for its graduates. In most instances it Is impossible for the school to make good on its promise, and the promise is made solely as bait to get enrollments.
