Charley Bennett was fined $15, Joe Hayes
$10 and George Maynard $5 yesterday after-
noon in police court as a result of their row of
the night before in the Pastime pool hall. Their
stories conflicted. Bennett and Maynard,
however, indulged in some language which
ended in a fight. When Hayes attempted to
help out Bennett, another man is said to have
smashed him in the nose with a billiard ball.

Dennis Quaempts, Athena, was this year’s
champion in the Elks sponsored grade school
free throw voting contest held at Central
School in Milton-Freewater. He made 35
of 50 shots attempted, with Tom Crimins of
Central second with 34x50. The Pendleton
Elks will sponsor Danny Hoff of Pilot Rock
in the finals. Hoff, the son of Mr. and Mrs.
Walt Hoff, hit 43 of 50 from the charity stripe.
The finals will be staged at Corvallis Saturday
with the concluding tosses between halves of

25 Years Ago
From the East Oregonian
Jan. 26, 1993
Richard Skyhawk starts every performance
by taking his shirt off, shaking out his long
thick hair and draping himself with feathers
and beads. “But I leave my Levis and tennis
shoes on,” said Skyhawk, 40, a Umatilla
Indian whose family lives on the Umatilla
Indian Reservation east of Pendleton. “I want
them to see the Native people are caught in
two worlds.” Those worlds — the modern
and the traditional — form the core of his
trans-Atlantic performances in places as far
away as Siberia and Mongolia. A self-styled
dramatist and storyteller of Native American
culture, Skyhawk has traveled extensively
since he first toured Europe as a basketball
player in 1977.
