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.

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
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

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
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
