In National Audition
Mrs. Joe Huehes this week re
ceived word that her brother, G.
Willard Bassett, had won a contest
among 300 contestants at his home in
Santa Ana, Cal., to sing in a famous
national radio program to be broad
cast from New York City on July 22.
Bassett, hailed by a Santa Ana pa
per as "the man with the bell
chimes," has been heard in Heppner
several times. He was selected for
the audition by ballot from listeners
at the local broadcast.
On the way east he will appear
with the Elks double quartet at the
national Elks convention meeting in
Denver next month. With Mrs. Bas
sett he will leave Santa Ana July 1
for San Francisco, boarding the Elks
special train for Denver.
Known in his home town as Bill,
the local woman's brother received
this tribute from the local paper:
"Bill is the fellow who can make a
village choir sound like a metropol
itan chorus. He makes the Elks
double quartet appear to have about
40 angel tenors, which is saying
something for the however, that's
something else. Bill also can stand
up by himself and sing like nothing
you ever heard before."

week. Charles Barlow, county clerk,
went over to Vancouver and viewed
the plane of the Russian aviators
that had just completed its flight
