While it hardly seems fair that one

year before amounted to $96.41, mak-

but which were accepted as legiti

The spirit of Monday evening's
meeting was, "Let's pay it, and start
with a clean slate next year." And
those taking the lead in the check-
writing were the president and di-

guarantee list and who, besides,
shouldered a heavy part of the bur-
den in putting on the show.

that Lee Beckner and Frank Turner

Mustangs Defeat
Enterprise' 12-0
The Heppner Mustangs seemed
to have had a shot of tonic or
something as they romped to
a 12-0 victory over the Enterprise
Savages. Practically everybody was
of the opinion that the Savages
would tame the Mustangs but the
Heppner boys proved different.
The game started out with
straight football dominating the
play. Heppner made consistent
gains through the efforts of Richard
Hayes who turned in an excellent
game at fullback. Heppner scored
once in each half. Jack Merrill,
Paying right half, set the stage

Heppner's Mustangs return to
their home range Friday for a foot
ball game with Condon. This marks
their first appearance on the local
field since the Fossil game a month
ago. Friday's game should reveal a
vastly improved team over the one
which was lucky to come out of the
Fossil fray with a 13-12 win.
The Condon team is reputed to
be strong this year, having beaten
both Arlington and John Day, after
dropping an early season game to
Fossil. Gate time Friday will find
the two teams evenly matched and
rarin' to go.

to a petition on neutrality and the

Vinton Howell Sans
Pants After Tussle
With Attacking Deer
Vinton Howell is wearing a new
pair of pants, given him by Sher
iff C. J. D. Bauman, while the
latter's pet buck deer has gone to
tables of the needy, all because
the pet tried to keep "Vint" from
getting into his home Monday eve
ning. Howell lives neighbor to the
sheriff. When he started through
the gate at home about 4 o'clock
Monday afternoon, he noticed and
recognized the sheriffs pet deer
a couple of feet from the gate. He
did not suspect what was going to
happen, however.
As he started past the deer,
hardly giving it second thought,
the animal rushed at him antlers
foremost. Vint grabbed the horns
to protect himself, and had a busy
time warding off the deer's fly
ing front hoofs which finally left
his pants in shreds, and some
scratches on his legs. He had to
bulldog the deer, and scramble
among the rocks with, it for an
interval, before he could get away
from it, and in the scramble also
lost some skin from his hands.
Otherwise, he emerged little the
worse for wear, just as Harry Ar
cher, Ralph Justus and Charlie
Johnson, who witnessed the fray,
were coming to the rescue.
Lest the deer's "mad" season re
suit in something even more seri
ous, Sheriff Bauman shot it Mon
day morning and turned the car
cass over to the relief agency.

Bird Hunters
Get Break as
New Season Set
Morow county bird hunters are
elatedly greeting what amounts to
a two-week extension of open sea
son for hunting upland birds, phea
sant, quail and partridge, as a re
sult of attorney general's ruling
that the game commission acted
outside its legal rights in opening
the season October 1.
Eleven days of hunting have al
ready been enjoyed of the first an
nounced open dates, October 1 to
15. Ruling, however, that a 1939
legislative act takes precedent over
the 1935 supplement under which
the commission acted, the attorney
general declared the legal open sea
son dates are October 15 to 31. The
commission has now so announced
the season and a brand new 15 days
of bird hunting may be enjoyed
beginning Sunday.
With the attorney general's ruling,
the taking of one female pheasant
in any seven days of the new sea
son also becomes permissable.

Hazard Check-Up,
Prevention Week
Isom Brings Mes
cage to Lions;
Federal Man Guest
Disastrous fires often may be pre
vented by precaution on the part of
property owners, and it is with this
thought that Heppner firemen are
encouraging everyone to check their
premises for hazards during Fire
Prevention week, October 1-19, said
Blaine E. Isom, Heppner volunteer
fireman, in addressing the Monday
Lions luncheon.
In checking premises, all accumu
lations of junk and debris should
be eliminated, oil and other inflam
mables should be removed from
proximity of stoves or other heating
vices, matches should be put
safely out of the reach of children,
electric wiring should be examined
for flaws, chimneys should be
checked r.nd rleanrd where excess-
accumulation of soot appears,
weeds and trash should be cleared
away from buildings. Such precau
tions on the part of all property
holders will not only save the fire
men a lot of grief, but may be the
means of preventing many costly
fires which may be induced by
cooler weather and the necessity for
keeping stoves going.
A large item all property owners
should conbider is the likelihood of
obtaining lower insurance rates thru
this widespread elimination of fire
hazards, said Isom. .
This item is being considered by
the city, too. Fifteen hundred dol
lars was included in the proposed
city budget for next year earmarked
for the purchase of a new fire truck
with pumper. Isom said this equip
ment will save its cost in lowered
insurance rates as well as give bet
ter protection to all property in the
Dr. L. D. Tibbies, councilman, en
larged upon Isom's remarks by com
plimenting the firemen for the fine
work they have accomplished and
the active interest they are taking in
their work. Sole compensation lies
in the $2.50 each fireman draws at
a fire where it is necessary to use
the large hose. This sum hardly com
pensates them for wear and tear on
clothing, Tibbies said. Nevertheless
the 12 active firemen hold practices
regularly and are on the job the
second an alarm is turned in.
W. S. Bennett, Smith-Hughes in
structor, told the club of the fine
showing Heppner FFA chapter made
at the Pacific International exposi
tion in Portland with judging the
end of the week. Guests for the day
included W. A. Dalzell, with depart
ment of internal revenue, and two
sons, Tom and John, all of Portland,
who were passing through town on
their way home from a successful
deer hunt in the Ukiah section. They
hunted with a party of eight, each of
whom bagged a nice buck. Mr. Dal
zell, Sr., recalled having last been
in Heppner as a representative of
Governor Pierce at the time loans
were being made to wheat farmers
following the freezeout of 1923. Hav
ing been prominently connected
with Oregon politics for many years,
he had many times crossed paths of
Heppner people. Tom Dalzell, who
was introduced by O. G. Crawford
as an old friend at Klamath Falls
where he lived before going to Port
land as an attorney, said henceforth
he would not brag on the Klamath
Falls section as Oregon's best deer
hunting grounds. The section he had
just visited undoubtedly has more
deer than any place in the world,
he said, basing his opinion on the
many deer seen during their hunt.
Mr. and Mrs. Orville Smith and
son Jimmy spent the week end with
relatives and friends at Naches,
