Depatment of Agriculture
Official Expected to Out
line 1937 Set-Up.
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
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:

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
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.

Some little excitement was creat
ed Friday morning when the fire

started in the coal bin. The fire
was discovered by Harvey Bauman

promoting health progress; be it
resolved that we strongly urge rap
id extension of all appropriate
health promotion and health con
servation activities in our schools
and communities.
Whereas the financial security of
teachers is an item of utmost social
importance, and whereas the Ore
gon law at this time does not make
provision for retirement pay for
superannuated and disabled teach

teachers of Morrow county, urge
the officers of our Oregon State
Teachers association press before
the coming legislature with the ut
most vigor adequate legislation that
will provide a suitable and actuar
ially sound retirement plan for the
teachers of Oregon.
Whereas the only satisfactory
method of protecting members of

ious types of injustice is the pass
age and enforcement of tenure leg

dorse the tenure plan as propound
ed by the state and national asso

are sought for various purposes; be
it resolved that we heartily endorse

Cross - Section Organization Held
Essential; Community Service
Keynote Sounded by Speaker.
Dr. A. D. 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 of Woodcraft elected
officers for the ensuing year at
their regular meeting Monday eve
ning. Refreshments and a social

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
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.
