The stork is showing a patriotic spirit in Pendleton. He delivered two pairs of twins here last night. One pair was born to Mr. and Mrs. J.A. Porter of this city and the other pair to Mr. and Mrs. Louis Blahm of Rieth. Of the Porter twins, one was a boy and the other a girl and by a peculiar coincidence, the father of the twins is himself a twin. He and his sister are the twin children of Mr. and Mrs. W.T. Porter. Both the Blahm babes are girls.

Powderpuff football at McEwen High School Saturday afternoon was not for the faint of heart. In one of the roughest gridiron battles on the local field this year the Lucky Lights defeated the red-jerseyed Pigskin Pussycats 12-6. Peggy Adams carried the ball for the two touches for the Lucky Lights and Sally Geissel scored the lone-run for the losers. Eric Pickard, Ron Hill and Bob Johns were cheerleaders.

Visitors are rare for 23-year-old Jun Ming from North China who, as a sheepherder in north Morrow County, leads a desolate, singular life with two dogs — Junior and Linda — and sometimes more than 2,000 sheep. Ming is one of seven imported shepherds from China and Peru tending the flocks of Jim West, an Ione rancher who runs upward of 5,000 sheep over land ranging from the alfalfa fields south of the Columbia River to the national forest lands in the Blue Mountains near Tollgate.
