Lions Hear About
Greatness of Texas
Texas is not only the largest state
in the union, but in the opinion of
its citizens it is the biggest in vir
tually everything that goes to make
up a commonwealth. This was brot
to the attention of Heppner Lions
at Monday's luncheon when Rev.
Wm. L. Blakeslee of Austin, Texas,
read a humorous letter credited to
a Texan who had gone elsewhere
to live but who was so imbued with
the greatness of his native state that
to him all other states paled into
insignificance by comparison. In
short, if Texas were taken out of
the Union there would be little
left of the good old U. S. A.
The letter , was read by way of
introducing a little levity to the
meeting and the visitor later spoke
seriously of the work of the Paulist
mission which he is conducting in
Heppner this week. He was accom-1
panied by Father McCormick, pas
tor of St. Patrick's parish, who ex
pressed appreciation for the pleas
ant reception he has had here.
Alden Blankenship made a report
on the recent band contest in La
Grande. He said that wliile Hepp
ner received superior rating this
year instead of the excellent rating
which has been the rule with the
local band the past several years,
the school and band are not down
on their luck but are determined to
work harder to recapture the form
er status at the next contest
Lieut. Marius P. Hanford, com
mander of Camp Heppner, outlined
plans for a lawn party, which, as he
explained, may prove to be a fare
well party, inasmuch as the camp's
status is in doubt. Weather per
mitting, the affair will be held out
doors and preparations will be made
for feeding all who come 50 or 1500,
the commander said. Last year's
party was held in the mess hall and
the guest list was limited to 200 per
sons because that was all that could
be accommodated. Ample advertis
ing will be given this year's party
which will be staged the latter part
of May or early in June.
The president was asked to name
a committee to act with committees
from the chamer of commerce and
other civic groups in helping to
serve lunch at the annual school
music festival on May 3.
Next Lions meeting will be Mon
day, May 6.

John Deere Hay Loaders
You know that pitching hay onto a wagon is
one of the hottest, dustiest, toughest jobs on the
farm. Why not spare yourself this punishment
and, at the same time improve the quality of
your hay by gathering it gently from the wind
row with a John Deere Raker Bar-Cylinder Loader.
This strong, all-steel, big-capacity loader with
flexible, self-adjusting floating cylinder and raker
bar elevation gathers the hay clean, even in rough
fields, and delivers it without loss of valuable
foliage parts. Three-point mounting adds years
to the life of the loader, and makes for quick,
easy coupling. Come in and let us show you why
the loader you buy should be a John Deere.
