Several Heppner people who
had been forewarned tuned in on
one of the ABC stations Saturday
evening to hear Conrad Schultz,
young tenor of Los Angeles in his
initial performance on a studio
program. It was a pleasant ex
perience for all who heard him,
for it was no ordinary voice that
came to them over the airwaves.
It wais a voice that gives much
promise of being heard in big
time circles, possibly the opera.
Schultz, an ex-marine veteran
of World War II is a nephew
of Mrs. Lillian Clogston of Hepp

Johnson, was raised here and
named her son for her brother,
Conrad Johnson, remembered by
many of the older residents of the
community. The Schultz family
located on Tule lake across the
border south of Klamath Falls
where success attended their ef
forts and a few years ago they
moved to southern California
to make their home and where
their Bon, Conrad, following his
hitch with the marines, took up
music as his life's work.
