Railroad Company
Says Hands Tied
In Local Situation
Five day telegraph service
seems to be the lot of towns on
the Heppner branch, what with
the depot agent and freight clerk
going on a 40-hour per week ba
sis and the Pacific Telephone &
Telegraph company announcing
discontinuance of telegraph serv.
Ice in the stales of Washington,
Oregon, California and Nevada.
Since Agent Floyd Tolleson is
the telegraph operator and will
be off duty Saturday and Sun
day, Heppner will be without that
service those two days. Hereto
fore, it has been possible to send
messages by the Pacific Tele
phone & Telegraph service but It
now appears that this avenue is
to be closed to the public
This matter was presented at
She luncheon meeting of the Hep
pner chamber of commerce Mon
day and it was brought out by
Judge Garnet Barratt that to send
a telegraph message on Saturday
or Sunday would necessitate a
telephone call to a main line sta
tion, which, with the telephone
call and additional delivery char
ges will add considerably to
communication expenses. The
Judge suggested that not only the
chamber of commerce should
raise an objection but that all in
terested citizens do likewise
J. I. Purdy, district traffic agent
located at Pendleton, in town the
first of the week, stated that there
is little the railroad company can
do about alleviating the situation.
The 40-hour week has already
placed a heavy employment bur
den on Hie rail lines, he said, and
there is little possibility of put
ting on a third man in the Hepp
ner Qffice just to handle the tele,
graph service on Saturday and
Sunday. However, the matter had
not been presented to him for
consideration and It will require
some study, he said.
Mrs. ("onley Lanham and the
royal court of the Morrow county
fair and rodeo were guests of the
chamber of commerce at Mon
day's luncheon. Mrs. Lanham in
troduced Queen Shirley who in
turn presented Princesses Betty,
Faye, Ingrid and Dorothy. The
girls told of some of the interest
ing social events they have at
tended during the current fair
and round up season.
Harold Erwin, manager of the
rodeo division of the fair, made
an appeal for community support
during the following two weeks.
He stressed the dress-up parade
Saturday evening of this week
and urged business houses and
individuals to participate with
entries. Nelson Anderson, county
agent and fair secretary, spoke
along the same line.
Mis. Mary Stevens took a few
minutes to tell about the forth
coming visit of the mobile x-ray
unit, and Henry Tetz compli
mented the queen and princesses
on their horsemanship and gen
eral good looks.
A count of those planning to
drive to Boardman Saturday mor
ning revealed that seven cars
from the group would be avail
able. There will be no meeting next
Monday Labor Day.

With the fair and rodeo less
than a week away, when it is
contemplated that many visitors
will be in town, why not a gen

A few weedy spots here and there
can make the whole town appear
seedy. It Is up to the property
owners to look after their own
weed cutting along the fences
and walks, for the city does not
go that far in its program of
street cleaning. We want to have
a good fair and rodeo; we want
big crowds to visit our town dur

that many people from this sec

length of the drouth of 1919 was
reported in the news item, but it
is doubtful If it was any longer

Fat Stock Auction
To Be on First
Night of Rodeo
Maximum Price
Set at 10 Cents
Over the Market
Plans have been completed for
the 4-H fat stock auction sale
which is to be an event of the
Morrow county fair and rodeo,
'N. C Anderson, county agent, and
secretary of the fair and rodeo,
said Monday afternoon. An eve
ning event, the sale will start at
7:30 p. m. Friday, September 9.
As an added attraction, and to
help gather a crowd before the
sale starts, a pig scramble for
4-H members will be held at 7 p.
m. The scramble will be for 4-H
members under 12 years of age,
ho are not old enough to parti
cipate in the calf scramble. Pigs
will be donated by persons inter
ested in club work. The animals

the members who catch them.
; The 4-H fat stock auction will
differ from last year's sale, In that
prices will be pegged at a maxi
mum of 10 cents over the fat stock
market price. This will apply to
all animals sold with the excep
tion of grand and reserve champ
ion animals, on which no maxi
mum will be placed. Club mem
bers have declared their inten
tions to consign 22 calves,, six
Cheep and one pig. Special at
tempts are being made to secure
ibuyers for all of the animals.
With the 10 cent maximum price
on the fat stock, farmers and oth
ers will be able to purchase ex
cellent grain fed quality meat to
fill their lockers.
Harold Erwin, will be superin
tendent in charge of the auction
yale again this year. Erwin was
responsible for arranging the first
4-H auction sale, in 1918, which
brought an average of 77 cents
per pound on 14 head of fat beef,
65 cents a pound on three fat
sheep, and 75 cents a pound on
one fat Dig. This was the highest
car-javerage price reported by any of
the counties in Oregon that held
auction sales last year.
The fair and rodeo board hopes
for the same enthusiasm this
year as was exhibited at the first
sale last year. Animals of equal
quality will be offered at much
lower prices this year.

Six Calves Donated
For 4-H Scramble
On September Ten
Last Year's Catch
To Be Shown As
A Special Class
Morrow county's second annual
calf scramble will be held Satur
day afternoon, September 10, as
a part of the rodeo events of the
day, County Agent Nelson Ander
son said Tuesday afternoon. So
far, six calves have been donated
to the fair and rodeo board for
use in the event. Only 4-H club
members from 12 to 17 years of
age, inclusive, are eligible to take
part in the scramble.
Calves which were caught in
last year's scramble are being
groomed and fitted for showing
in a special class at the coming
fair. Persons who gave calves for
the first annual scramble will
have an opportunity to see how
well the animals have done un
der 4-H feeding.
Anderson said he already has
received several applications from
4-H club members who wish to
try their hand at calf wrestling.
He explained that light calves,
weighing about 275 pounds, are
used to prevent injury to the con
testants. Donors' calves are not
used in the scramble, but, rather,
are claimed by club members ac
cording to the numbers marked
on calves which are caught in the
John Graves, superintendent of
the calf scramble, has been given
calves by the following persons
or businesses: Kirk and Robin
son Hereford ranch of Sand Hol
low; Hugh Smith; Steve Thomp
son; E M. Baker of lone; McCabe
Brothers of lone, and Mankin and
Bunch of Heppner.
Anderson said several more
calves will be needed for this
year's show. Several persons who
gave animals last year have of
fered to give another. The agent
said the fair and rodeo board had
rejected several such offers be
cause they did not believe any
one person should be asked to
give calves in two successive
years. He said, however, that
some such offers may be accept
ed if calves cannot be obtained
from other sources.
Calves were given last year by
Cliff Doherty, Lee Beckner, Or
ville Cutsforth, John Graves, Gar
net Barratt, Elks club, Sherman-
Ferguson ranch and TV ranch.

Changes Made In
Saddle Division
Of Fair and Rodeo
Persons interested in the sad
dle horse division of the Morrow
county fair and rodeo will be in
terested to learn that a change
has been made In the division to
encourage more participation.
Fred Mankin, superintendent and
Tom Dorrance, saddle horse judge
met Tuesday evening and have
made some important changes In
the classes.
Instead of all breeds competing
in the halter class, provisions
have been made for classes of
each of the prominent breeds of
horses in the county, Including
Arabian, Quarter-horse. Thorou-
ghbred, and a class to include
others. Thts change was made as
it is quite difficult to jui'ge these
horses competing against each
breed. A galted class has been
added, providing a lot of three-
gaited horses and one for five
gaited mounts. This was provided
since there has been much inter
est shown in the gaited class. The
: superintendent is very anxious to
'Jiulld up the saddle horse division
at the county fair anil Invites all
horse owners to exhibit.
Entries should be made soon
so stalls can be reserved. Judg
ing of the saddle horse class will
be held at the paddock at the
Wranglers barn on Friday morn
ing, September 9, beginning at
10 a. m. Winners of the Classen
will be paraded In front of th
grandstand during the Friday uf
,ternoon Rodeo performance.
