Now for the Fair and Rodeo
It't l'.o.i' a tin.e n;.i:n. only t1 ;s year we have
omrthlnc more In think abo..t --the county fair.
It haS born a number of years since a fair was
held in Heppnei a:i.i it rrrr.v.r.s to be seen to
what i-xtrnt th.t part cf the week-end entertain
ment will auract people to Heppner. Interest
diiplayed to date indicates that the fair will
play no small part in creating interest in at
tendance at both the exhibit of products and the
wild west performance just over the corral fence.
As for the Rodeo, there is reason to believe that
fine show is in prospect. If preparations have
any influer. it should be the best show ever.
The d! rectors and others interested in the wel
fare of the Rodeo have been putting in some
hard licks to get the grounds in shape and it can
be said the arena, grandstand and all features
connected with the staging of the show have
never been in better condition.
As time goes on it Is hoped the fair and rodeo
will be under one management. Some duplica
tions of effort can be eliminated without detract
ing from either and eventually there will be one
good big show with backing of a larger number
Preparations for the fair are going on just as
fast as workmen can put them through. The ex
hibit hall is ready to receive the products of soil
and hand, and the livestock quarters were rapidly
nearing completion Wednesday evening. Inqui
ries about exhibit space have led fair officials to
believe that the space provided will be no more
than ample. This is a good trend and one that
will eventually make the Morrow county fair
nn event of annual importance.
To visitors to the fair and rodeo Heppner ex
tends the hand of welcome.
Stote Loses Good Citizen
In fie pr.ssir.g of Merle E. Chessman, publisher
of the Astorian Budget of Astoria, the state of
Oregon has lost a valuable citizen. His talent for
getting things done will be missed in his home
community where he took the leadership in nu-
merous civic enterprises; his accomplishment in
making Tongue Toint a major naval base, and
otherwise strengthening the defenses at the
mouth of the Columbia river, as well as service
on the state fish commission, the state highway
commission, and as state senator, all mark him
as a man of real service to his community and
to his state.
It is a notable fact that Mr. Chessman's career
as a newspaperman was spent with but two pa
persthe East Oregonian at Pendleton and the
Astorian Budget. He was an outstanding pub
lisher, a past president of the state editorial as
sociation, now the Oregon Newspaper Publishers
association, and at the time of his passing was a
member of the board of directors of the associa
tion. Band Spirit Renewed
For a number of years the Heppner school
boasted one of the best bands in the class B div
ision. With the coming of the war and a general
disruption of school activities, the band all but
disappeared. That nucleus which was sustained
throughout that trying period has been surround
ed by a new group of aspiring young musicians
and under the guidance of Billy Cochell we have
a school band once more that is going places. In
fact, the band has already been places within the
week and returned home with laurels seldom at
tained by a group with such short preparation.
Winning of the award in the Dress-Up parade
at Pendleton Saturday night was no mean
achievement for the Heppner band. Larger bands
from larger schools were in the parade also, but
none of them, in the opinion of the judges and a
large segment of the spectators, quite measured
up to the showing made by the Heppner band.
It is also reported that the same opinion prevail
ed at the Umatilla county fair last Friday-that
had there been awards made for bands the Hepp
ner band would have captured first place.
These are pleasant words and should encour
age our young musicians to strive for greater
awards. Nothing will be gained by resting on
laurels already won. That is just the starting
point ior greater things to come.
