Hardman Students
To Vie at La Grande
Bright and early on Saturday a
car load of high school pupils will
leave for La Grande to take part in
the annual speech arts festival.
There are two entrants in the poet
ry reading, Opal Hastings with "The
Famine," and Irl Clary with "The
Seminole's Defiance," both of whom
will be on the forenoon program.
The one-act play, "Not Quite Such
a Goose." is scheduled for 1:30. Those
in the cast are Vern McDaniel, Opal
Hastings, Mildred Clary, Irl Clary
and Donald Robinson. There will
be a banquet and an evening per
formance as well as a meeting of
directors, so it will be a full day.
The Let's Talk meeting held last
Wednesday was the last for this
year. We will not meet again until
next fall and hope that we have a
good attendance to start the new
school year. Irl Clary will be pres
ident and Opal Hastings secretary
for the new session
The high school directors held.
their regular session and transact
ed routine business.
The Community Sing met at 7:30
Wednesday evening at the usual
time for singing. There were two
readings, "Zachery and the Setting
Hen and Going Fishing" by Mrs.
McCutcheon. There was a special
meeting called to discuss the time
for stopping this year. It was de
cided that we have another meeting
or( two before closing the weekly
sessions until tall,
The spring weather we've been
having lately seems to have put the
citizens of Hardman in a good, mood
Half of them turned out for the
spring festival at Heppner Friday.
Since most of us like camping on
our motor trips, we met at the home
of Mrs. Roy Robinson and then left
in their truck. It was an enjoyable
ride to Heppner with 25 present and
plenty of sunshine and fresh air.
On arriving in Heppner everyone
proceeded to do their shopping and
plain killing of time until noon when
they met at the high school for lunch
and to watch the Maypole dances.
After the singing that evening ev
eryone came home? It was a some
what breezier ride than the one
earlier 'in the day but everyone en
joyed it and seemed to be glad they
had gone
Glen Cox of Enterprise and Harve
Moore of Lonerock spent Sunday
at the home of Owen Leathers. They
are wating to shear at Clark Stev
ens' ranch with the Kinnard Mc
Daniel crew.
Mrs. G. I. Clary led Christian En
deavor Sunday night. The topic for
discussion was "Honesty."
The Sunday school decided to
dismiss until school opens in Sep
tember, since most of the pupils
will not be here during the summer
Miss Alta Stevens went to the 0.
C. Stevens ranch Sunday where she
will cook for the shearing crew.
Predictions regarding weather.
based upon Easter conditions, are
all wrong because we are having
some very cold and dismal days at
present and we shall plan no Sun
day picnics for several weeks. Al
though the most of the days have
been cold we have had several
warm days, but they don't come
very often.
Mrs. Charlie Fraters was visiting
her mother, Mrs. W. F. Gallagher,
last week.
Since the Rev. R. V. Hinkle found
it necessary to change his plans, the
baccalaureate exercises will be held
at the church on Friday, May 6 at
7:30 instead of on Sunday as was
previously announced.

with them. Thursday night they
stayed at Miss Morton's home in
Portland and bright and early Fri
day morning they went on to Oregon
City where they attended the Chris
tian Endeavor convention. Miss
Morton, who is state prayer meeting
superintendent, led three confer
ences. The theme of the convention
was "Christ, the Master Builder,"

only two weeks away the political

Martin has the democratic nomina
tion "in the bag" although qualify
ing this prognostication by the ex
planation that he will not receive
a majority of the democratic votes.
In a two-way race between Martin
and Hess, these observers declare,
the La Grande man would have
better than a 50-50 chance for the
nomination but with Oleen in the
field to divide the anti Martin sup
port the governor is comparatively
safe. Heavy gains in democratic
registrations, especially in industrial
centers, are believed to reflect a
round-up of anti-Martin voters in
the drive of organized labor to de
feat the governor. Democratic gains
have been especially heavy in
Clackamas, Clatsop, Coos, Deschutes,
Klamath, Lanfe, Lincoln, Marion,
Multnomah, Umatilla, and Wash
ington counties.
So far the Republican guberna
torial aspirants have failed to evoke
any considerable enthusiasm among
the rank and file of their party.
With a field of eight candidates to
choose from the names of Sam
Brown, the Gervais farmer, and
Charles A. Sprague, Salem publish
er, stand out from the group as the
favorites for the nomination and it
is doubtful if the average republican
voter could name more than two of
the remaining six candidates with
out consulting a sample ballot. Clar
ence Wagoner of Portland is expect
ed to poll a heavy vote among the
Townsend followers in Multnomah
county but is not regarded as a ser
ious contender for the nomination.
Neither is Charles L. Paine of Eu
gene believed to command enough
support to win the race in spite of
the surprising strength he develop
ed in the campaign for republican
national committeeman two years
Taking a page from the experi
ence of Nebraska the State Grange
is sponsoring a proposed constitu
tional amendment for .a unicameral
legislature for Oregon. Under the
Grange proposal the legislature
would consist of 60 members elect
ed for two-year terms. Regular leg
islative sessions would be limited to
50 days and special sessions to 20
days with the members drawing $8
a day for their services. The Grange
program would also authorize spec
ial sessions upon a call signed by
two -thirds of the membership as
well as upon call by the governor.
Oregon will concentrate its appeal
to the tourist trade in a display at
the San Francisco Worlds fair. Def
inite decision to withdraw from the
New York exposition was announced
following a meeting of the Oregon
World's fair commission here this
week. In a formal statement the
commission explained that with
drawal from the New York fair was
due to the "cold and indifferent at
titude" of the New York fair offi
cials to the Oregon exhibit.
Resumption of the federal pump
priming program has revived hope
for PWA aid in financing construc
tion of a new tuberculosis hospital to
be located in Multnomah county.
The Board of Control has announced
its intention to press Oregon's claim
for a $90,000 grant to. supplement
a state appropriation of $110,000 for
the new institution.
While, naturally, there is no con
siderable enthusiasm among state
employees over President Roose
velt's proposal to tax their salaries
in his effort to balance the federal
budget there will be no organized
opposition to the program so far as
Oregon is concerned. High state of
ficials, those whose pay checks will
be hardest hit by the federal tax, are
practically unanimous in endorse
ment of the proposal. Governor Mar
tin, State Treasurer Holman, Secre
tary of State Snell, members of the
supreme court and heads of various
state departments who have been
interviewed on the subject admit
the justice of the proposal that state
employees should bear their share
of the cost of government. While
there are a total of 9825 men and
women on the state payroll drawing
an aggregate of 11,045,000 a year a
large majority of these will be ex
empt from the federal tax. Statistics
compiled by the budget department
show that the average annual wage
for men on the state payroll is only
$1620. Most of these men are married
and entitled to an exemption of
$2500. While women in the employ
of the state earn an average of $1152
a year many earn less than the $1000
a year which is allowed to single
persons before the income tax ap
plies. Oregon farmers are urged by the
State Department of Agriculture to
insist that the seed which they buy
for spring planting is properly la
beled in accordance with the provi
sions of the new Oregon seed law.
The new law is designed to protect
farmers from purchasing seed con
taining noxious weeds, according to
Frank McKennon of the department.
The population at the state prison
continues to show a steady growth,
Warden Lewis reported to the Board
of Control this week. The prison
population shows an increase of
more than 65 since the first of the
year and is now approaching the
previous peak of 1103.
Eight convicted labor vandals now
occupy cells in the Oregon peniten
tiary. Al N. Banks, Salem teamster
union leader, is the latest addition
to the prison "goon" colony. A num
ber of minor offenders caught in
