"... From the mountains
to the prairies, to the oceans -white
with foam ..."
It's God Bless America through
out the land, but for the next three
days in Heppner, it's all hail the .
rangeland which will have its inning
at the 19th annual Heppner Rodeo.
A city bedecked with flags and
banners, a citizenry garbed colorful
ly in raiment reflective of the Old
West are welcoming the already
ever-increasing number ofl cow
pokes, animals and visitors who will
join in the joymaking. Queen Mar
jorie and Princesses Doris, Phyllis,
Betty Lou and Patricia, whose of
ficial reign began with inaugural at
Saturday's queen's ball, form a
comely royalty to whom all will
bow in ready fealty.
Range hands from far and near will
start their work of joymaking on
full stomachs. Lee Beckner and Jim
Kistner have seen to that. From 6
to 9 in the morning their chow crew
will flip flapjacks in the frying pans
over camp fires in the Willow creek
grove just one mile above town.
Luscious steaks, all at the price of
50 cents, will be added, and the
guarantee of old western hospitality
is that no appetite shall go unsated.
But even before breakfast, a real
Rodeo appetite pervaded with ro
manticism is the opportunity af
forded in dancing to the enchanting
tunes of Vivien Lewis' all-girl dance
band at the pavilion this evening.
Townspeople and early Rodeo ar
rivals will be welcomed to a general
admission fandango tonight starting
at 9:30. Tomorrow and Saturday at
the same time tunes will be dis
pensed at the jitney rate.
Official Rodeo headquarters is in
the corner of the Heppner Hotel
building, where entries for events
will be signed, reserved tickets for
Saturday and Sunday sold, and in
formation on housing or other ques
tions will be given visitors.
The show of bucking horses and
Brahma steers, calf roping, races (of
which Sunday's Morrow County
derby will again be the climaxing

noon. Reserve tickets for Saturday
and Sunday are $1.25; general ad
mission each day for adults $1.00, for
children, free tomorrow, 50 cents

With track and arena in best shape
ever, the Warren-Depew bucking
horses rearin' to go, Baze, Swaggart,
Hughes, Belton, Byrnes and Turner
racing horses in fine fetter, and Pat
Fisk and Cody Dodson, former
champs, heading the cowboy brigade,
everything is set for a full program
of entertainment each afternoon.
Parade of the Old West beginning
at 10:30 Saturday morning will again
be one of the headline attractions,
where young and old will unite in a
colorful cavalcade to compete for
cash prizes, list of which is given in
another column. Mounted cowboy
delegations from John Day, Pendle
ton, The Dalles and Mollala are
among rangehands from afar who
are slated to appear in the event.

well as playing at the grounds. Many
floats, pets, 4-H club animals, comic
depictions aE will join to make
up the thrilling serpentine of sound
and color to wend its way into and
