PRAYER DAY POSTPONED The World Day of Prayer moot Ing scheduled for Friday, Feb. 13, has been postponed until further notice by the Union Missionary society, sponsor of the event, 18 Cars Stalled On South Highway Following Dance Drivers of 18 cars stranded in snowdrifts on Heppner flat Sat urday night or maybe it was Sunday morning must have realized what a predicament Humpty-Dumpty was in. In place of all the king's horses and all the king's men, there were pre sent the sheriff, state police and the road equipment of the state highway department, but these forces could not combat the for ces of nature when it came to re leasing the cars from the drifted snow. The cars were returning from the DeMolay dance at the Rhea Creek grange hall when the first car became stalled in the "S" curve south of the Frank E. Par ker residence. Frantic efforts to free the car from the' rapidly drifting snow were to no avail and ere long the other cam headed Heppner way arrived and they in turn were hemmed in by the snow. The highway crew had cleared the road to the grange hall and beyond early Saturday evening and assured the party-bound folk that the road would be kept clear, but at that time of the evening it could not be forecast what the weather would be a few hours later. By the time the party broke up a strong Chinook wind had arrived and the snow, especially on the flat, was on the move, but definitely It had drifted beyond the capacity of the road plows and finally, in desperation, word was gotten to Marcel Jones, who took his tractor to the scene and one by one pulled the cars thru the barricading snow. It requir ed a rotary to clear the road after the cars got out of the way. Fortunately for the trapped people the wind was not as cold as it had been a few hours ear lier but sitting up there on the hill and not knowing when they might be released was not a plea sant experience. Cards, Umatillans To Settle Little League Leadership lone Put Irrigon Boardman Away fn Past Week's Play Championship in the Little Wheat league will be settled Fri day evening at lone when Uma tilla, runner-up in the race, will ittempt to wrest the honors from the Cardinals, hard-playing quin tet, who are just about as good as anything in this territory. lone tightened the hold on first place the past week by dumping two of the Little League teams overboard.

Representatives from Gilliam and Morrow counties will meet with specialists from Ore gon State college and the bureau of entomology at 1:30 p.m. in the Vendome hotel. The seriousness of the cricket menace is fully recognized by residents of the two counties and the specialists alike and the plan is to meet early enough to for mulate a campaign of extermina tion of eggs and thus prevent further migration of the destroy ers. Anderson said he thought there was little likelihood that freez ing weather had affected the crickets. Experiments have prov ed that the eggs can be frozen and thawed repeatedly without hurting them. About the only time they may be made infertile by freezing is to catch' them at just about the hatching stage and the weather can t be depend ed on for that. Poison is the only effective method and it is expected a pro gram will be mapped out for distributing and feeding the po tent agent to the crickets.

Columbia Basin Wheatlands Lose Almost Half Fertility "Almost one-half of the origin-1 al fertility of Columbia basin wheatlands has been lost unfler the system of wheat summer fal low followed in the 60 or 70 years of cropping in this area," Merrill Oveson, superintendent of the Shei i an branch experiment sta tion ixt Moro, said at the Joint an nual meeting of the Lexington Blow Control district, the Hepp ner Soil Conservation district and the Lexington Oil Co-operative at an all-day session held at the Lexington grange hall Monday. Approximately 75 people attend ed. Such practices as grass and grass-legume rotations must be included in the wheat ranch op erations of the future if this lost soil fertility is to be replaced, Ov eson, featured speaker at the meeting, pointed out. "Because of the heavy rainfall and snow this year, the applica tion of nitrogen in the form of 50-100 pounds of ammonium sul-. phate per acre should be profit able on young wheat that emerg ed in December, on volunteer wheat in last year's stubble that may be heavy enough for a crop and on double cropped land that may be seeded again this spring," Oveson said.
