September 28, 1950 fBzwMtx Fair- Rodeo Funds Short of Meeting Operational Costs Heavier Expense, Lighter Receipts .. Given as Reason At a meeting of fair board and rodeo directors held Monday eve. ning in the county agent's of fice, the financial summary was presented by the secretary-treasured. With various small dis bursements perhaps overlooked it was found that the 1950 ex penses exceeded the deposits by 443.76. Main sources of income when checked showed that rodeo admissions were down from 1949, being the major reason for the deficiency. In dusbursements, the labor item which included tim ers, judgesr announcer, night watchman, as well as a large carpenter bill for chute and an nouncer stand remodeling, ex ceeded the 1949 figure by a large margin. In another part of this paper, the financial summary is printed for the people to which this an nual event belongs. They are be ing asked to do their share in backing this show which has been acclaimed by many as the show the present board of direct most popular in these parts...? In making' plans for the" 1951 ors is taking stock of the various breakdown of activities and their value to the 1950 show. Voting for a two night dance to take the place of the original three with more volunteer labor to be recru ited for pre-rodeo preparations was unanimous. Ways to pay off present indebtedness were dis cussed, with each member to work on this project. It was de cided to let the public know that the lair pavilion is a community building to be considered as such by all citizens. Registration Books Close October 7, County Clerk Warns Tardy registrants are warned that the books will close at 8 o'clock the evening of October 7. County Clerk C. W.

He urges all un registered voters to visit his of fice before October 7, but the office will be kept open as stat ed above to accommodate those who just can't get around to it before hand. o lone Shows Strength In Holding McEwen To Score of 12-All lone and McEwen grid squads foueht to a 12-12 tie Friday af ternoon on the lone turf. This marked the first home game for lone and gave sports fans a look at the new eight man formation beins used this year. Friday's tilt was marked by long pushes in advance of each touchdown. Goals were evenly di vided by the two teams each quarter. Touchdown plays were as 101- lows: McEwen set up the ma chinery for a long advance with its Dowerful single wing attack and scored on a pass from Garry VanOakler to Frank Bear early in the first quarter. This set the fast pace which characterized the rest of the game. Duane Baker, freshman lone back, took a handoff from quar terback Donald Eubanks to tie the score at 6-6 during the sec ond quarter. A McEwen pass to Forrest Ba ker was good for a 6 point lead that lasted into the last half of the fourth quarter. In the final fpw minntps of thp game.

LEXINGTON CHURCH Your Community Church 7.. Franklin Cantrell, Minister Mustangs Provide Poor Competition For Echo Eleven Visitors Score? . Almost at Will . In One-sided Bout Pre-game hopes that Hal Whit- beck's young Mustang squad would make a good showing against Echo perhaps even spring a surprise were sadly dashed when the well-oiled and properly geared "Bulldog" ma chine got to rolling. Flashes of good team play exhibited by the Mustangs were lost sight ot in the smashing ground-gaining plays run by the visitors, who scored just about whenever they got good and ready. Of course one or two fumbles by the Mustangs prevented them from gaining needed yardage and in one instance led directly to an Echo touchdown. Heppner had a good chance to score when one of Piper's long passes placed the ball on about the 2-foot line. Echo made a de termined stand and after four futile attempts to cross the line the Mustangs surrendered ithe ball. The powerful Echo backs had little trouble in finding the right spots for penetration of the Hep pner line and when one oi tnem got into the Heppner backfield he usually made telling gains, if not running directly io a touch down. The visitors' ball carriers are rugged and speedy while the Heppner boys seemed afraid to jump right in and tackle. It us ually "required about hall ot tne team to down the ball carrier. The Mustangs will have time to strengthen their plays before meeting Umatilla there October 13. They were scheduled to meet Condon there on the 6th, but Condon has cancelled out for the rest of the season. Fossil comes here October 20, then the team travels to John Day to meet Grant Union on October 27, to Moro on November 3 and the fi nal game will be played here No vember 11 with Hermiston fur nishing the competition. Lack ot interest on tne pan oi the prospective players caused officials at Condon to drop the 1950 schedules. It is reported that only 12 men turned out and that the coach used a lew gins in practice, none of whom turned out to be Lucille Sweeneys, and it was decided the schedule could not be carried out with so few players. o FAT STOCK AUCTION BIDS AT MORROW COUNTY FAIR TOP STATE FAIR PRICES Comparing prices of the third hogs, 31.8 cents; beef, 33.6 cents annual 4-H fat livestock auction sale, an event of the recent Mor row County Fair and Kodeo, with this year's State lair auction it is found that ooosiers oi mis saie in Morrow county can well be proud of themselves. In compar ing these two 4-H auction sales, N. C. Anderson, Morrow county agent, reports an average selling price of 44.6 cents per pound for beef, 36.6 for hogs, and 75.1 for sheep, at the Morrow county sale, with 34.7 cents a pound for sheep, 30.8 cents for hogs and 36.3 cents for beef at the state lair auction. Another interesting comparison is the summary of all 4-H auc- Der Dound. Morrow county pn ces were excelled by seven other sales only. Buyers of the 1950 4-H fat auc tion sale livestock that set such a good record were: Tom Michos, Portland; Motfow County Grain Growers; Elks club No. 358; Cot Swanson; R. B.
