CAR RESTORED TO OWNERS
Mrs. Orville Smith and son Jim-
my made a hurried trip to Seattle
last week-end following a call that
Mrs. Smith's mother, Mrs. J. F.
Pfeiffer was very ill. Upon arrival
it was found that Mrs. Pfeiffer's
illness had been brief and not so
serious so Mrs. Smith and Jim re-
turned to Portland where they were
able to pick up the family car that
had been stolen earlier in the win
ter, and returned to Heppner Mon
day evening. The car apparently is
none the worse for its experience.
