GROUP NAMES GIVEN Several Committees to Handle Sub jects for Discussion Named by President Harvey MUIer. With local committees busy look ing after entertainment features and state officers arranging a pro gram said to be fully up to past high standards, the ninth annual meeting of the Eastern Oregon Wheat league to be held here De cember 4 and 5 is expected to draw a record crowd of Columbia basin and Blue Mountain wheat growers. By the time the meeting is held the 1937 agricultural conservation program will be fairly well outlined and the league officers have been promised that one of the leading officials of the department of agri culture at Washington will come to Oregon for the sessions, says E. H. Miller of Lexington, president of the organization. Two years ago George E. Farrell, head of the wheat section in the old AAA and now director of the west ern region, was the Washington representative. He chose the wheat league meeting as the place for making several important an nouncements in connection with the adjustment program. A year ago at Pendleton, C. C. Conser, an other high official, was present. Oregon growers are looking for ward to coming announcements of the 1937 program with considerable interest because of the desire in this and other northwestern states to have the plan simplified for the coming year somewhat as has been done with the range improvement program. Other important topics for this year's meeting on which commit tees are already at work Include noxious weed control, livestock feeding, river transportation, co operative marketing, crop insur ance, production problems, and leg islative recommendations. Relative importance of the Blue Mountain counties in wheat pro duction in recent years has In creased interest in the league work in that region and a larger attend ance is in prospect, say the county chairmen. Other officers of the league this year are Charles Nish, Mikkalo, vice president; Charles Smith, Oregon State college, secretary-treasurer; and the following county chairmen: Lloyd Smith, Gilliam; H. V. Smouse, Morrow; Harry Proudfoot, Sherman; James Hill, Umatilla; E. H. DeLong, Union; Hugh Wilson, Wallowa; L. J. Kelly, Wasco; John Putnam, Wheeler; N. E.

BIG NORTH TRACT IN GRAZING PLAN Organization Started for District Under Taylor Act; Committee on Articles Named. A unanimous vote to form a graz ing district in the north end of Mor row county was the result of a meeting held at the county agent's office Friday, Nov. 6. This meeting was called by the Department of the Interior and was attended by a majority of the range users of the territory affected. The proposed district extends on the west for about six miles into Gilliam county. The south boun dary is roughly the Immigrant road. On the east the district follows the county line north, extending for an irregular distance into Umatilla county. The private land in Irri gon, Boardman and Umatilla is, of course, not included in the district Mr. Gait and Mr. Stafford from the Division of Grazing came from Burns to conduct the meeting. Pro fessor P. M. Brandt, head of the division of animal industries at Or egon State college, also was pres ent Jack Hynd, John Krebs, Charles Bartholomew, Roy Neill and Wil liam Kilkenny were elected a com mittee of five, with Joseph Belan ger, county agent, to act as secre tary, for the purpose of drawing up articles of association and by-laws for the graz'ng association which it is contemplated will conduct the af fairs of the district when officially organized. According to the provisions of the Taylor Grazing act, under which this district will be formed, ninety days must elapse between the date when last Friday's meeting was called and the date of the election at which the final decision as to the formation of the district will be made. At this election all those men who would qualify as licensees within the district are eligible to vote. Any question as to eligibility will be decided by a committee of three men selected at the time of the election. The proposed district includes roughly 90,000 acres of government land, 65,000 acres of private land and about 43,000 acres each of Northern Pacific and county lands. "The need for some organized form of range protection in this area has been felt for some time and the range users who have been running sheep and cattle on these lands have been active for nearly two years in an effort to have this block of range brought under the Taylor Grazing act," said Mr. Belan ger in reporting the meeting.

McMurdo sounded the keynote in a rally which led the Heppner Lions club to a renewed determination to continue its place of service to the community. The club paused long enough Monday in itg regular routine to take stock of Itself, air criticisms from without and within, and to decide whether it was worthwhile to continue as a Lions club. It was Dr. McMurdo who said, "The object of Lionism is commu nity service, not personal benefit There is no place in a Lions club for the fellow who does not expect to give something toward the good of the community." Again he said, "It's a poor physician who would let a patient die a natural death without trying to do something about it." There was discussion as to wheth er the Lions should dissolve in favor of a purely local commercial club which might be more readily sup ported by the community generally. In answer, history of such organi zations in the past was cited, which showed that the Lions club had continued longer and accomplished more than any service organization ever attempted. The fact that part of the dues money went outside the community was not deemed objec tionable in view of the fact that the money apparently purchased the life-blood which kept the organiza tion going. Part cause of the discussion arose from the fact that the club appar ently lacked the support of the ma jority of the business houses of the community, and it was suggested that a survey of the general senti ment among business men be made to determine what their objections to the Lions club are, and whether they would give their support to a different type of organization. Success of commercial clubs else where was cited, but in each in stance the club maintained full- time paid secretaries, an admitted requisite if a commercial club is to succeed. The question naturally resolved was, could Heppner af ford such a secretary? The general concensus of opinion of Lions was that some organiza tion representing a cross section of the business life of the community is essential to the community's wel fare, and that so far no better plan of organization has been shown than the Lions club. The Lions decided to stick to their guns at least until a better organization is evolved to take over their work. Dr. L. D. Tibbies presided in the absence of Ray P. Kinne, president, and each member contributed views on the leading question. A short tribute to National Education week was given by Alden Blankenship, school superintendent, who said the larger problem confronting the high schools today is that of preparing 3tudeYits for life and not entirely for college entrance. Figures show that only 15 percent of the high school graduates go on to college, he said. NEIGHBORS ELECT.

HERMIST0N DRAWS ARMISTICE CROWD Locals Win at Football, 7-6 In Sea son's Last Game; Auto Acci dents Involve Local CCC's. Heppner was nearly depopulated yesterday as many of its citizens moved enmasse upon Hermiston to see its football warriors overcome Hermiston high, 7-6, and otherwise participate in the Armistice day celebration. Heppner's close foot ball victory, marking the last game of the season for Coach Tetz's pro teges, was hard-earned and provid ed lively entertainment for the large number of rabid spectators. A town game in which Hermiston, led by John Weisman, emerged victorous over a heavier Wasco team, was played to make a doub'e header football event. A dinner for American Legion and auxiliary members, followed by a dance spon sored by Rebekahs, provided enter tainment in the evening. TraD- shooting for turkeys attracted many as a morning event. The day's activities were marred by two automobile accidents which landed four victms in the hospital. xnree victims were local CCC boys in a government truck which over turned on a corner when it slid into a soft shoulder. There was no par- ucuiar Diame placed on the boys for the accident. Injured were Fran 3is Scully, Robert Hiller and Joseph Keefe, Scully only slightly while the other two received more seriou3 in juries including broken legs. Hiller and Keefe were pinned under the machine, and Scully, who had ex tricated himself had to seek assist ance before the two lads could be freed. The other accident grew out of the first one when Curtis Simonds, who came by the scene shortly after the CCC boys were taken from beneath the truck, and picked up one of the boys to take him to the hospital in Hermiston, skidded into a parked automobile, resulting in serious in juries to himself and almost com plete demolition to both cars. Si monds was just returning to town from hunting. 9 9 9 CAMP REPORT GIVEN. Following is the report of the truck accident as reported by the local CCC camp: 'An accident occurred a mile this side of Hermiston on the Lexington Hermiston highway where a local CCC truck hauling gravel hit a soft shoulder in the road, thus causing the cab of the truck to tip and roll info a tree, injuring three enrollees of the local CCC camp. Josenh Keefe, who was driving the truck, received two fractured legs and a bruised and lacerated head. Robert Hiller received a fractured leg and cuts and bruises about the. body.
