Hermiston lakes
Fill-in Game 6 to
4 Here Sunday
Heppner Got Most
Hits But Couldn't
Cash In on Them
It wasn't a league game so
the boys don't feel too bad about
losing Sunday to Hermiston. As
a matter of fact, the score indi
cates a pretty good game 6 to
4 with Heppner taking the hon
ors on hits and Hermiston donig
the honors on runs.
Schoonover, Hermiston twirl
er, allowed nine hits with which
Heppner was able to muster up
four runs. On the other hand,
he struck out 17 Heppner bat
ters. Massey, pitching a good game
for Heppner, stopped the visit
ors with four hits, yet they went
on to win.
Broadfoot smashed out a
three-bagger which might have
been only a two-bag run had
not the ball hit a pole in the
corral fence and bounced back
onto the baseball field. Had it
gone through the fence he would
have been limited to two bases.
Interest was added to t he
game with the addition of a
sound wagon to announce the
results of each play. The jun
ior chamber of commerce pro
vided the wagon and LaVeme
Van Manor emceed.

He explained that "I Intend to
be the busiest retired gent you

Made at Graduation
Exercises Friday
Several members of the class
of 1947, Heppner high school,
were accorded honors at the
commencement exercises held in

the annual awards.
Betty Keeton was named val
edictorian for her outstanding

Heppner school but in the pre
vious high schools she has at

address spiced with hit 'or rn I
containing a lot of solid thot.
One cannot imagine bo billion
horses In terms of animals but
in terms of horse power it is
something in line with present-1
day trends. He pointed lo ie

Carloadings Show
Decrease During
Present Month
Wheat Gone From
Branch; Lumber
Holding Up Well
Carloadings out of Heppner
decreased during the month of
May, a summary by the freight
office at the Union Pacific de
pot shows. With wheat being
cleared from the elevators ear
ly in the month the volume has
dropped appreciably, according
to A. R. Shamblyn, freight clerk.
Wool is being shipped out at
present, according to Shamblyn,
but this commodity doesn't cit
the figure in carloadings on the
branch that it once did, what
with flockmasters retiring from
the business as they have been
since the early days of the war.
Seventeen cars of cattle have
gone from the local yards dur
ing the month. Of these, Fred
Hoskins shipped three cars to
Duncan for summer pasture;
Jess Foster shipped three cars
to Enterprise for the same pur
pose; Frank Wilkinson shipped
one car, Harry Dinges two and
Cornett Green two to the River
side Livestock Feeding Co., Port
land. Charles Walsh also ship
tied two cars from the Heppner
Lumber remains the heavy
cargo from the Heppner termin
al. Up to Tuesday of this week,
85 cars had been shipped. At
present the shipments are from
I he local mills, Heppner Lumber
company, Scritsmier's Re id
Lumber company, and Big Four
Lumber company. Transit ship
ments sent in here by a Wil
lamette valley mill for planing
at the Heppner Lumber com
pany and thence east have sus
pended temporarily.
Incoming shipments during
the month have consisted of oil
for highway surfacing; five car
loads of combine harvesters to
Heppner and Lexington, and
t lie Columbia Basin Electric
Co-op received a car and trailer
of poles, for construction of the
LEA lines if and when finances
are forthcoming for continuing
the work.
In conclusion, Shamblyn stat
ed that Joe Donaldson shipped
a carload of horses to Ogden,
Utah during the month.
Dr. A. B. Copen and Dr. Olive
Knight of Los Angeles and Mrs.
Marian Diehle of Rochester, N.

Fishermen who like to tell
tall tales about their casting
prowess seldom think of the
streams in this area as the lo
cale for "big ones," yet now
and then local fishermen go out
and hook trout that would do
credit to the Deschutes, the Ro
gue, McKenzie and others of Or
egon's noted streams. Unrlam-
orous stream names like Wil
low creek, Mallory, Wall and
Potamus have little appeal to
big shot fishermen but local
nimrods know the right places
and the right time to visit these
wild mountain streams to snare
the worthwhile specimens.
Last Thursday Mr. and Mrs.
Frank Gentry drove to-Potamus
creek for a day's fishing. When
they returned that evening they
had two rainbow trout that
would be the en.vy of many an
adherent to the Izaak Walton
principle of recreation. One of
the beauties measured 28 inch
es, the other 26. Not all the
trout cruising the riffles of Pot
amus are like that, but the
Gentrys surely had a field day,
piscatonally speaking.

Wickard Approves Allocation
Of $200,000 to Local RE A
For Transmission Facilities
Telegraph lines between Wa
shington, D. C, and Heppner
were busy Wednesday carrying
messages from department
heads and Oregon congressmen
to the Columbia Basin Electric
Co-operative relative to alloca
tion of funds to the local REA
for construction of transmission
lines to carry Bonneville "juice"
into the farm areas of Morrow
and Gilliam counties.
First message to arrive was
received from Claude R. Wick
ard, rural electrification admin
istrator, who informed Henry
Baker, president of the Colum
bia Basin Electric Co-operative
as follows: "Pleased to advise
allocation $200,000 approved."
A little later Senator Guy Cor
don wired the following: Have!

The loan contract will be for-'
warded to you for signature '

I pany relative to power trans
i mission from Hermiston to Jor-
1 dan. The house vote on the ec-
onomy program was unfavor
able to REA and it remains to
be seen what the senate will
accomplish ii restoring some of
the appropriations.
Wckard's approval of the loan
to the local cooperative is in
line with a request made by
Henry Baker and Albert Scou
ten on the occasion of a hurried
trip to Washington a few weeks
ago. Up to the present, Bonne
ville has been unable to offer
any assistance to the CBE and
it was suggested that if the
REA would advance necessary
funds to the CBE for construc
tion of transmission lines, Bon
neville would lease the lines at
a figure that would amortize
the loan.
If the money is forthcoming
construction of the transmission
line from Hermiston to Jordan
will be made possible. At pre
sent a tentative agreement has
been reached between the Paci
fic Power & Light company and
the Bonneville administration
whereby PP&L will "wheel"
Bonneville power over its line
from Pendeton to Hermiston to
be transferred to the Hermiston
Jordan line. This will be a 66,-000-volt
line and will serve both
the CBE and PP&L lines in Mor
row county.
The Columbia Basin Electric
Co-operative has most of the

Hearing on Milk
Licenses Held in
Heppner Tuesday
Hermiston Dairy
Operators Would
Enter Local Field
Should the Oregon milk board
see fit to grant licenses to dairy
operators seeking franchises
there would be three concerns
delivering milk in Morrow in
stead of one. Two applicants'
cases were heard here Tuesday
morning when Melvin J. Conk-
lin, examiner for the state milk
board, took statements pro and
con relative to the present ser
vice and examined the applica
tions of Olin L. Hodge and Rich
ard Barham of Hermiston who
seek to enter this field for
wholesale distribution of milk.
Conklin took up the applica
tion of Olin Hodge first, asking
questions as to the present vol
ume of milk handled by the ex
isting distributorship; distance
his truck would have to travel
to and from Hermiston and pro
bable cost per mile and what
the average cost per quart of
milk would be. Hodge's figures
in answer to the above resulted
in an estimated delivery cost of
six cents per quart. He later
stated that he is delivering milk
in Arlington now and if granted
a license to distribute milk In
Morrow county would make a
circuit trip, delivering to Hepp
ner, Lexington, lone and Ar
Hodge stated that his milk is
acquired from farmers whose
barns meet Grade A specifica
