Doney Wins Bout
by Technical KO
Fight fans were brought to their
feet more than, once at the smoker
sponsored by Heppner Fire depart
ment at the county fair pavilion last
Saturday evening. From the open
ing engagement to the final gun
in the main event the boys were in
there throwing leather at each oth
er as feverishly as the nazis and
Tommies are throwing lead and
steel in Norway.
Louis Doney, Morrow county's pet
wildcat from the sagebrush land of
Wells Springs, fell short of his am
bition to score a clean knockout
over Charles Aldrich of Butter
creek. Doney pounded his man into
submission and was awarded a tech
nical knockout. The "Wildcat"- is
going to add rattlesnake meat to his
diet in preparation for his next
A close second to the main event
was the semi-final between Sammy
McCracken, 135, Hermiston and
Billie Stevenson, 140, New York
This bout was a draw. The New
York boy upheld the Squaw Creek
CCC camp tradition for fighting and
the fans are hoping this pair will
be matched again.
Ellis Granger and Gordon Heffel
each tipping the beam at 115 pounds,
fought to a draw. Bennie Crawford,
170, Monument, garnered a decision
over Bill Hardie, Condon; Donald
Swanson, 155, was awarded a de
cision over Ralph Tully, as was
Brown's Special from Monument
over Garvaille. The last bout was
in the 145 pound class.

Killed at Marcola

relatives this morning of the death
at Marcola yesterday of August
Schunk, Jr., son of August Schunk
and brother of Albert Schunk and
Mrs. Maida Britt of Heppner. De
tails of the death were lacking and
his relatives here think it must
have been due to an accident in
the timber, as he was a woodsman.
Mr. and Mrs. Albert Schunk, Au
gust Schunk and Mrs. Britt left
this afternoon for Marcola. Other
relatives surviving are Mr. Schunk's
wife and children, and two brothers
and a sister residing at Oregon City.

victory in the fall appear strong on
the horizon at this time. An Ore
gon boy, scion of a prominent pio

The 1940 tax roll shows a total
of 30,400 sheep and 676 cattle in
and adjacent to the grazing district,
all of which are dependent on it
for fall and spring pasture. If these
flocks and herds are forced to move
out or the operators are required to
reduce their livestock holdings thyu
loss of this grazing area, the county
will lose in physical valuation and
taxes, the judge pointed out. Ap
proximately $1000 will be lost in
grazing fees alone.
There are 100,599 sheep on the
tax roll this season and nearly one
third of them are in the grazing dis
trict area. It is doubtful if the op
erators could find suitable locations
elsewhere in the county, and too,
if they were cut down on their
flocks it is doubtful if they could
carry on successfully.
A general spirit of cooperation
was manifested at last night's meet
ing. Following a sumptuous dinner
served by the home economics club
of the grange, several grange mem
bers were called upon to give their
views and all expressed a desire for
closer cooperation between town
and rural neighborhoods. Repre
senting the grange were Orville
Cutsforith, R. B. Rice and S. J. De
vine. C. J. D. Bauman, chairman of the
civic improvement committee, re
ported on the findings of his group
and Chas. B. Cox, head of the ag
riculture committee, expressed a
desire to assist the farm movement
in every possible way.
Directors of the Heppner Rodeo
association asked an expression re
garding this year's show. The con
census of opinion was that a show
of some kind should be continued
and the belief prevailed that the
rodeo might be improved upon; also
that more stress should be placed
on the 4-H and FFA fair.
Musical numbers were piano du
ets by Mrs. J. O. Turner and Miss
Marjorie Parker and vocal solos by
