This assurance is a result of the field inspection for certified seed wheat in several fields last week, states N. C. An derson, county agent.

A bin sample is necessary to further check the eligibility of the wheat before certification can be completed With heavy Infestations of rye and off-type variety volunteer wheat In many of the fields this year there should be a great de mand for this certified seed.

He used a chart to aid in pre senting the various agencies serv ed by the chest and to show how much of the amounts raised in the several counties remain at home to support local civic and welfare work. "Where your community chest contributions go" was the subject of Mr. Johnson's talk. The June 30 issue of "Chest News," official organ of the organization, is in effect the same subject matter and contains the following infor mation: Total contributions reported to date in the 36 Oregon counties during 1947 chest campaigns, $1, 863,688.85. Amount reported as raised for Oregon chest agencies, $113,206.72. Balance remaining in various counties, $1,450,482.13. Practically all of the $1,450, 482.13 left in the various coun ties from the 1947 campaigns is being used to aid character- building and welfare agencies right in the local communities. Among these agencies are the Boy Scouts, Camp Fire Girls, Ca tholic Charities, Girl Scouts, Sal vation Army, Volunteers of Am erica, Y.M.C.A., Y.W.L.A., ana many others of a strictly local nature.

Agent Says Morrow county has been quite fortunate to date In reference to grass fires. With the exception of a few small fires In the range land in north Morrow county, where one farmer was quite ser iously burned, there have been no fires reported. However, as harvest begins, with grass and grain reaching maturity and con centrated activity In these fields there are bound to be some fires. With the growth of grass and grain as it is there fires could be very serious in loss to crops, buil ding, livestock, and human lives, states N. C. Anderson, Morrow county agricultural agent. Each year fire losses occur when someone attempts to do some burning of a small nrea around farms or waste lots. These fires are dangerous and in many cases result In loss of crops or property. At the same time there are laws that apply to such burn ing. It might be well to call to the attention of farmers and rural residents some of these laws; The Permit Law: Persons who wish to burn forest land, grass, grain stubble or stumps must se cure written permission from a encies rendering services to peo ple from all the counties of Ore gon: Albertina Kerr Homes, The Boys' and Grls' Aid Society, Ca tholic Children Bureau, Child ren's Farm Home, Oregon Mental Hygiene Society, Oregon Prison Association, Salvation Army's White Shield Home, Volunteers of America's Mother's and Child ren's Home, and Y.M.C.A. Armed Services Program. Some of the things accomplish ed by the Oregon Chest agencies in 1947 and made possible by your dollars: 3,086 children from all counties of Oregon received the necessities of life; 464,571 days of care provided these chil dren by the seven child-caring agencies. Approximately 2,500 other cases received some help directly in the counties at home. Provided food, clothing, homes, opportunity to attend churches and schools to the needy and dependent children of Oregon. Started many children on the road to becoming useful, worth while citizens. Brought help and comfort to many peolpe in trou ble. Aided in preventing mental ilness and helped many who are mentally ill through a broad ed ucational program featuring bet ter care. Made possible a home like place for relaxation for many of the young men who are serv ing in the armed forces. "The needy children, all those facing trouble, those mentally ill, the young service men all these people are our neighbors and friends. Surely everyone wants to lend a helping hand," Johnson 'concluded Purchase Agreement Program Offered to County's Farmers The Purchase Agreement pro gram is now being offered to Morrow county farmers. One pro ducer may obtain both the reg ular CCC loan and the purchase agreement, provided they are completed by December 31, 1948. Under the purchase agreement program CCC will purchase eli gible wheat represented by a warehouse receipt or eligible wheat delivered to CCC at the Morrow county loan rate of $2.02 per bushel of No. 1 wheat. It should be clearly understood that the signing of a purchase agreement does not bind the pro ducer in any -way but merely gives him the opportunity of sell ing his wheat to CCC for $2.02, if he so desires. A producer has his wheat under his own posses sion at all times and may sell through regular trade channels at any time. Further information concerning this program may be obtained at the AAA office In Heppner. Attention is called to a new Federal Crop Insurance program that is being offered this year in Morrow county which will guar antee a certain number of bush els to sell at this guaranteed price. Your guaranteed bushels will depend upon which of the eight areas in Morrow county in which your farm is located. o Mr. and Mrs. Vawter Parker and children of Hood River and Lorene Mitchell, who is working during the summer at The Dal les, were week-end guests at the Frank S.

Heppner Softball Champs Take One From Pendleton Rodeo Field Crowd Sees One of Best Games of Season By Jim Barratt Six hit hurlings by Southpaw Herb Schunk and a timely sixth frame single by Outfielder Bill Blake enabled the Heppner Amer ican Legion nine to outscore the highly-favored Pendleton Eagles 15 to 12 here Sunday in an ab breviated Softball tilt. The Round-Up City lads had previous ly bested Heppner in their first meeting at Pendleton by a 24 to 16 score. The Legionnaires, top local Softball aggregation, broke up a two-all knot in the third inning jumping on Eagle chucker Thur- man for six runs. Pendleton took advantage of a pair of Heppner bungles in the fourth to chase in three runs, adding three more in the fifth to again throw the game Into a deadlock. Heppner went into its half of the sixth frame one run behind when, with two men on bases and two out, Blake batted out a sharp single over second which scored infielders Van Horn and Barger. The Legionnaires tallied five more runs in the sixth while holding Pendleton to three scores in the seventh and final inning. Spectators agreed the diamond tussle was one of the best games of the season, with each team committing a minimum of errors and giving more tight and ag gressive performances than us ual. It is expected a third game will be scheduled in the future as each team has one win over the other to its credit.
