The assncia- tion has no wav of oarrvins a lonff- term indebtedness, it was pointed t rVnort of Tn I. Gilliam, secre- tary-treasurer, showed that $364.18 in expenditures this year went into . the new barns and corral. Bills paid year before amounted to $96.41, mak- ing a total of $460.59 for which guar antors were not strictly responsible but which were accepted as legiti mate and necessary to future con duct of the show. 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- rectors whose names headed the guarantee list and who, besides, shouldered a heavy part of the bur- den in putting on the show. Fresident Henry Aiken, personal- ly, carried the hang-over deficit from. 1938, and it was brought out that Lee Beckner and Frank Turner naa ooui spent time ana money getting in poles for the corral fence without recompense. The outstanding indebtedness was shown to be a loan of $350 at the bank, for which the president and Continued on Page Eight BPW Sponsors Show To Aid Milk Fund The Business and Professional Women's club held their second meeting at the home of Leta Hum phreys Monday evening.

Mrs. McMurdo and their niece, Marjorie Sims, accompanied him as far as Pendleton, visiting over the week end at Pendleton and Milton. , Heppner, 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 for the first touchdown with a 50 vard n through teck?e- Hayes Puj the bal1 ver from the two yard line - , , , In the second half the game was a little more wlde featured by long Passes frm, arm of En terprise s star halfback.

MuStOnQS tO iMeet " uonaon lomorrow 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. Nutrition Expert In County Next Week Miss Lucy Case, nutrition spe cialist from Oregon State college, will conduct a series of food de monstration meetings in the county next week. Her first scheduled appearance at Eight Mile will be at the grange hall instead of the home of Mrs. Carrie Becket as announced last week, between 10 a.m. and 3:30 p.m On Thursday at the same hours she will be at the Congregational church in Ione.

Oregon, Thursday, October Pomona Elects Officers at Lexington Meet Program Features. Wheat Assn.

The next Pomona meeting will be held in Boardman with Green field grange as host. 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. 12, 1939 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. AAA Deadlines Cited by Committee Farmers of Morrow county who are cooperating with the agricul tural conservation program were reminded this week of four applica tion deadlines termed "very import ant" by their county AAA commit tee.

December 31 is the last date for requesting price adjustment pay ments for complying with the 1939 wheat acreage adjustment program March 31, 1940, will be the final date for county offices to accept ap plications for payment under the 1939 farm and range programs.

Subscription $2.00 a Year iremen Urge 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 city. 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, Wash.
