Four Morrow county students at
Eastern Oregon College of Educa

weather of the week end to spend a
night with home folks. They were

and Rhea creek, respectively. Scriv
ner learned that his parents had
gone to Condon to attend the basket
ball tournament, so ' he followed
them to that place.

Saturday was George Hayden. Mr.
Hayden returned recently from an
extended trip, during which time
the campaign for funds for the in
fantile paralysis foundation was
conducted and as chairman of the
Hardman district he was unable to
conduct the work in that vicinity.
For that reason Hardman had noth
ing to report. Mr. Hayden was ill
much of the time he was away.
Visitors in Heppner from Condon
Saturday evening were Mr. and
Mrs. Carl Anderson, Misses Ruth
and Rose Myers, W. F. Marshall
and R. L. Weir. They came to at

Youth Says Wheat
Fine for Livestock
Declaring wheat to be the equal of
corn in topping off livestock, Lura
Stephens, winner of the local FFA
forensic contest, told Heppner Lions
club Monday that farmers and stock
men of the northwest can well make
use of surplus wheat stocks by feed
ing the grain- to cattle and hogs..
Strange as it may seem, present
price considered, there is a short
age of hogs in the northwest trade
territory. It is estimated this short
age is the equivalent of 2,260,000
head when figured in pork products.
It was also explained that the north
west trade territory includes the 11
western states, so that the shortage
is not confined to a retsricted dis
trict. Heavy shipments of both live
animals and pork products are im
ported from the middle west where
corn is the principal ration while
surplus stocks of wheat in the
northwest could be used as feed for
thousands, of hogs.
The speaker contended that a sub
stantial increase in the bushel price
of wheat may be obtained by feed
ing the grain to livestock, and his
statement was verified by some of
his listeners who have had exper
ience in the business.
Monday's meeting was held at the
CCC camp where the Lions dined
with the camp personnel. It was
demonstrated that the camp has
good cooks and that the boys fare
nicely. Next meeting will 1 be at
Hotel Heppner dining room.
Lioness Marjorie Parker, club ac
companist, showed versatility when,
in lieu of a piano at the camp, she
led the singing with the piano accordion.
Donations to Finns
Coming in Slowly
Although the campaign for funds
for relief work, in Finland started
in December, contributions to date
have been few, withal generous, ac
cording to Dr. R. C. Lawrence,
chairman of the campaign for Mor
row county. To date a total of $97
has been received at the First Na
tional bank, the gift of eight persons.
There has been no concerted ef
fort to get in funds for this purpose
and the chairman feels that more
attention must be given from now
on. There is no doubt about the
need for aid in Finland, Dr. Law
rence points out, for the hard pressed
little republic is putting up a fight
almost unparalelled in history and
its people, those at home or back of
the lines of battle, are in sore need
of food and clothing as well as med
