Recently, the Eastern Oregon
Wheat League delegates descended
upon our town in great numbers,
held a splendid convention, dissem
inating much present needed infor
mation, and departed with the gen
erally expressed idea that Heppner
had treated them royally.
I am rather proud of the manner
in which the good people of Hepp
ner and surrounding territory treat
ed the members and delegates of the
league and I want to take this me
thod of expressing my appreciation
of the services which our people
rendered. I cannot begin to name
everybody so I will just mention
them by groups. First the general
committee on arrangments are to be
congratulated on the success of the
meeting. They did a good job and
very few, if any, were disappointed.
I thank those persons who donat
ed courtesy cars and the bully boys
who drove them. I didn't know wo
had so many ready and willing boys
in the whole country. The banquet
was a big success and we thank
those who donated dishes, cutlery,
tables, chairs, etc., the cooks and
those waitresses. We must say that
our girls are just as swell as our
boys. The management was excel
lent and everything went off just
like clockwork.
I was somewhat disapp.i' ited that
we could not fill all the rooms that
were so generously offered, and es
pecially those rooms that folks
wanted to rent. But we filled only
about 25 percent of the rooms offer
ed and none of the CCC camp. That
does not mean that our crowd was
small, for it was reported that more
than 700 attended the Saturday mor
ning session and heard Mr. Evans
speaK. uut me j 'unman cars on
the Union Pacific housed between
300 and 400. When the cars were
ordered it was thought they would
be needed.
I am especially grateful to all the
women and girls who assisted with
the housing and registration com
mittees, also to the churches who
came to the rescue on the food prob
lem. Our school, teachers and stu
dents alke gave valuable assistance
and our high school band did itself
proud as usual.
I never knew so much cooperation
could be had from so many people.
We have 1140 people in our town
and I believe if it were needed, we
could have the services of 1140 for
a special occasion. I never really
understood before what was meant
by the Bible verse, "Ask and ye
shall receive." Just ask the good
folks of Heppner to do something
for a common cause and you will
know what that means.
If all the people of all the cities
of our great nation would cooperate
and work like the folks of Heppner,
the Japs and Hitler can come on
over any time and we will lick the
stuffin's out of them in short order.
J. O. TURNER, Mayor.
What would you do, and think, if
this school would disband all its
athletics? You know, if this was
done, you would see more of "your"
younger set hanging around the
various dives, smoking, drinking,
and cutting up. But you couldn't
blame them because they wouldn't
have anything else to do. The school
sports can't continue unless they
nav. and they won't pay unless the
school has more support than it has
been getting in the past years.
It is very nice to go down town
after a game and have one of the
prominent business men come up
and ask you how the game came out,
Julian Rauch and Son
Make Extended Trip
People of the South just don't talk,
observed Julian Rauch on his return
this week from a four weeks' tour
of the mid-west and south in com
pany with his son Irvin. They first
went to Chicago for the National
Livestock exposition and a fortnight
stay at the home of Mr. Rauch's sis
ter, whom he had not seen for 28
years that was one of the main
reasons for the journey, made by
Their trip, however, took them
on south from Chicago into Ken
tucky where they approached within
200 yards of Uncle Sam's big gold
depository, and at Fort Knox visited
nephew and cousin, Henry Rauch
who had just come off the rifle
range with a score of 44 out of a
possible 50, "and he sure was glad"
to see the folks from home.
The cottton belt visited had a poor
one of the big business men who was
too busy to go to the game.
Without backing no one can do
anything. Why don't the town peo
ple come out and back their young
people as the young people do their
projects? Is it because they have
no confidence in them? That is what
the young people are beginning to

the price was good. Being a farmer
himself, he was anxious to compare
notes with farmers of that region,
but they just wouldn't answer his
At the exposition Oregon had a
wheat display that was topped only
by that entered by Kansas. Mr.
Rauch returned with a picture of
a famous team of shire horses shown
by a St. Louis brewery. The entire
show was crammed with interest as
were many points about Chicago, in
cluding the Brooklyn zoo, aquarium
and many more.
The immense forests of oil fields
in Texas, forests of cacti in Arizona,
and forests of redwoods in California
were all given acclaim.
They had intended visiting Mex
ico, said Mr. Rauch, but on reach
ing El Paso on Monday, the day after
the outbreak of hostilities in Hawaii,
they contented themselves with
looking across the border.
Mr. Rauch did run across a form
er westerner in the south, who, in
the presence of a number of natives,
extolled the fame of the big trees of
Oregon and Washington, the beauties
of the Columbia river, the bigness
of the salmon and other things hav
ing no counterpart in the southern
regions. In an aside later, one of the
native listeners asked Mr. Rauch if

Archie Padberg received a badly
mangled right hand recently when
the fingers were caught between
the piler chain and sprocket while
working at the Morrow County
Grain Growers warehouse at Lex
ington. A fellow workman inad
vertently pulled the lever of the
starting clutch while Mr. Padberg
had his hand on the chain, and the
clutch grabbed so quickly it caught
him unawares. The member has
been responding to treatment, with
no show of infection, but the injury
has kept Mr. Padberg off the job.
