Fossil's Perfect
Record Broken in
Sunday's Contest
Heppner Outplays
Visitors to Win, 8
6, on Rodeo Field
Fossil's perfect season record to
date was broken when the visitors
met up with a determined Hepp
ner nine on the Rodeo field Sun
day afternoon. It might be more
fitting to state that the Heppner
squad was rejuvenated for the
players showed more pep than in
previous games and there was bet
ter coordination of plays.
Jack Miller was in great form
Sunday and pitched the entire nine
innings. This was tough on Fossil
for he limited the visitors to six
hits while Heppner garnered 12 off
Green. Jack fanned 10 against
Green's five, which also looks good
on the record book.
Ray Massey with two hits out of
four times to bat, Hoyt with two
out of three and Miller two out of
four showed Heppner in better
batting form than Fossil, with
Green getting one hit out of three
times up and Misner doing the
The game, was not without Its
exciting moments, especially when
Fossil players and manager irritat
ed Umpire Marshall after he rever
sed a decision made by the field
upmire. Marshall defended his ac
tion with his "dukes" and prepared
for a general melee, but the fracas
was stopped and the game resumed.
Rain in the last halt of the eighth
inning interrupted for a time but
did not prevent playing the ninth
Faster fielding by Jim Barratt
and Bob Pinckney, new recruits,
was effective in cutting down Fos
sil base stealing which had been a
strong factor in that team's winning
throughout the season. Several
runners were cut off by quick re
turns from the outfield and this
discouraged base stealing to a cer
tain extent.

County's Schools
Can Contribute to
Famine Relief
Morrow county schools can con
tribute to the famine reilef program
by using more home and commu
nity-canned foods in school lunch
programs next year, according to
Henry Baker, chairman of the
county AAA committee and emer
gency food program manager for
the county.
Since schools can obtain sugar
for that purpose, Baker urged
sponsoring groups and individuals
to increase cannning for school
lunches to ease demand on com
mercial stocks needed for famine
In addition, he pointed out, a
stepped-up school lunch canning
program will assure well-balanced
meals at hwer cost for children,
and will help prevent waste of sea-
sonally-abunda'it fruits and vege
tables. Schools apily to the state OP A
office for allotments of canning .su
gar for use by the school or' by
groups which are willing to pro
cess foods donated to or purchased
by the school. One pound of sugar
will be granted for every four
quarts of finished canned fruit or
juice, plus an amount for making
jams and jellies not to exceed 5
pounds for each 1,000 meals served
in 1945- As scon as the canning
is completed, the school reports to
the OPA on the amount actually
The chairman said that his office
would be glad to cooperate in pro-
vidine information on foods that
become abundant as the crops are
harvested duri..g the coming sea
son, so that pbns can be made for
increased canning of those that
might be in surplus supply.

Heppner Man Thinks Germans
Not Changed By Allied Policy
Unless the German people have
changed their attitude since he left
Europe, the policies of the occupa
tion forces are having little effect
upon the mind and conscience of
that country. That is the opinion
of Irl Clary, who saw a lot of
service and covered territory that
took him into 13 European coun
tries, or rather 11 countries and
two free states.
Clary says that while to all out
ward appearances the people are
submissive, there are too many
instances of sabotage and murder
to permit the belief that the Ger
mans have been conquered. It re
quires constant vigilance to break
up intrigues and plots, and to be
on police or sentry duty is to in
vite a knife in the back. There are
nazi agents and sympathizers still
working In the low countries and
these people are particularly
The young soldier, who was a
teletypist in the service, told the
chamber of commerce lunheon
group Monday that he believed he

lish understandably. Small as It is
and completely surrounded by
neighbor, Switzerland presents an
have not famliarized themselves
with the airport to learn what has
been done and what is planned in
the way of development
While the celebration has been
planned to entertain the people of
the county, it has another objec-
ive that of raising funds for air
port development Loss of the orig
inal hangar was a hard blow to the
sponsors and new buildings are
sorely needed to make the port a
going concern. For that reason, all
receipts from dance tickets and the
ir show will go to the port com
mission as a fund for improve
ments. Backers of the celebration are
hopeful that other communities of
the county will enter floats or oth
erwise join in making the parade
an attraction as well as a success.
There is an opportunity for the Ro
deo association, the granges, the
Heppner chamber of commerce, the
lodges and other organizations and
individuals to aid in makng the
people a little more air minded as
well as bringing to the attention of
visitors the resources and advan-
tagesof Morrow county.

Francis Niekerson reported on
the state grange convention in Ba
ker last week. It was his first visit
to a state grange meeting and he
was favorably impressed with what
he heard and saw . Organization
and conduct of the convention was
likened to a state legislature. The
grange reversed its former stand
on a sales tax and came out with a
recommendation for such a tax. It
also reversed its stand on compul
sory military training, an action
aided somewhat by the oratorical
powers of the Heppner man. "Nick"
stated that Orville Cutsforth was
one of the busiest delegates on the
convention floor and strongly ad
vocated the school aid bill.

Paint Crew Puts
Yellow Stripe on
County Highways
A feature of highway driving
safety which was all but a ban
doned on the Willow creek-Hepp-ner
stretch of the O-W highway
during the war is being put back
into place this week. The state
highway paint crew is renewing
the yellow stripe on the county's
I state-controlled roads using the
broken line system to conserve
paint supplies.
This is the first visit of the paint
crew to the Wllow creek road
since the war stopped such activ
ity except on the main arteries.
While some of the stripe remained
visible, most of it was worn off or
had been covered up with new top-
!pmg patching. The stretch be
tween Lexington and Heppner was
scarcely visible and this has been
j a little disturbing to night drivers,
especially when meeting other cars
j whose drvers prefer to take their
J half out of the center and won't
dim their lights.
Re-striping between Lexington
and Heppner would seem to indi
cate that resurfacing of the stretch
is not on the commission's program
of improvement in the county. This
unit has been kept in fair repair
despite the heavy hauling of the
past few years-
