Funeral Rites Here Today
for Esteemed Pioneer
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

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
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

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."

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,

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.

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

Among buyers active in the local
market are Harold and Henry Cohn,

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

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
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,

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
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

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

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

vacant lots where cars might park,

congestion that so often exists, es
pecially on Saturday evenings. Act
