Good Sportsmanship
When the Maupin High school
football team competed with the
Madras High school team the game
ended rather one aided in favor of
Madras. When our boys went to
Madras they realized they would
have a hard fight but they consid
ered it would give them good prac
tice and they decided the best teen
would win. When the whistle blew
and the game ended, our boys cheer
ed for Madras with good will and
friendliness. Some of the Madras
boys said, "Maupin showed more
sportmanship than any team we have
played this year." We consider now
that such an attitude toward us was
well'worth our playing for.

When choosing linoleum for the
kitchen floor, bear in mind the three
kinds plain, printed, and inlaid.
Plain linoleum is likely to show
foot-prints and other marks easily.
Prited linoleum has to be varnished
often to preserve the design. In
lai dlinoleum has a design which goes
clear though to the backing. It is
consequently more expensive, but the
pattern does not wear off.
Our school can bo proud of the
boys, us any school can bo proud of
KportsmanKhip. Every student should
have this spirit, among his fellow
classmates, studies, and athletics,
He should be a good loser as well m
a good winner. Since It is Impos
sible to win all the time, why not
make the best of it? If you try hard
to win, and yet lose, you have done
your best; here is your opportunity
to show your good sportsmanship
a thing of which our school can
boast. Genevieve Scethoff.
Picnicini At Bear Creek
(English 1, Oct 26th, 1927)
Our school year was over and we
pupils wished to have a picnic before
we all went away to the summer's
work or play. The teacher and we
pupils decided to have it at Bear
Creek. Here a cold spring comes
from the mountain side and fills a
large hollowed log. The water from
the spring forms Bear Creek. ; This
is about nine miles from our school
house, in the -Cascade Mountains. A
ffew acres of open land surround the
spring and grass and flowers grow
thickly about.
. We had asked a neighbor man to
take us in his truck which he had
promised to do. We decided on th
twenty-fourth of May for our picnic.
On that morning, which was . very
bright and warm, we pupils gathered)
at the school house with our lunch
pails and ready for our ride. Soon
we heard the truck coming and we
all ran to the gate ready to go. As
soon as the truck drew to a stand
still be began to swarm over its sides.
Afir considerable shouting and hub
bub we all found scats and the truck
started off with Its load of children.
We surely enjoyed our ride. The
truck had no top to hinder us from
looking about Scarcely any noises
but that of our own were heard
among the trees. Chipmunks scur
ried out of our path and' watched
from a safe distance. Sometimes a
jay would scream in the branches
above us to let us know he didn't ap
prove of our noise and fuss. All
around us were majestic trees, some
fir, but mostly pine. We rode along
In this way for nine miless, and then
came out at the clearing at Bear
We immcdately climbed out and
began to ramble about A small file
was made among a fe-.v rocks to moke
it seem more like a- picnic. ' Grass
was growing everywhere and the'
small flat was covered with golden
cowslips. Among the trees we 'pick
ed yellow violets and trilliums. We
climbed over rocks and log3 and en
Joyed ourselves in general.
Time passed quickly and soon it
was time for lunch. We began to
eat with eagerness as the mountain
air had sharpened our appetites.
After dinner we played "run sheep
run" and "hide and go seek." There
were splendid places to hide in the
thick underbrush, behind trees, and
logs. Then we mapped out a dia
mond and played ball for some time.
We made a ball from string and pa
per wheh wefound around wherq
campers had loft it We also en
gaged ourselves in a pine cone fightj
which was great fun but stickery for
our hands. We played until tired
and as it neared time for the truck
to come for us again, we gathered
around the fire and rested.
Soon the truck came and we piled
on. During the ride home we talked
of our day's interesting adventures
and were all glad indeed we had de
cided to picnic at Bear Creek.
Drovo Up For Ball. !

Going Over The Moon
Cattle prices have been at a high
level in the Chicago market recently,
heavy weights bringing $16.90 per
jwt, and fat yearlings $16.45. West
ern range steers brought $13.50.
Hog and sheep prices were also good
and the wool market was strong.
- Wheat Damaged By Rain
In Union 'Wallowa, and Baker
counties considerable damage to
wheat has resulted from continued
rains after cutting, and a portion of
the crop remains unharvested. In
eastern Washington, even more ex
tendsive damage is reported from the
same cause.

The Maupin school board seems to
be out to make a record for econo
my, It Is compelled by law to have
the budget published in the newspa
per, but before doing so solicited the
publishers' price for such publica
tion. We agreed to make a conces
sion In favor of the board, and now
they come and tell us how we must
act the budget up, claiming that oth
er papers follow their style and
charge less for publication. There
Is a legal limit set by law for such
publication. Several papers coming
to our exchange table have published
the budgets of their school districts
and each one has followed the style
sent out by the state board of educa
tion. , If that ia economy, then we
have a right to demand that our
share of the school taxes be lessened
because of our accession to the desire
of the school board and made a re
duction in our charge for publishing
the budget. "Consistency, indeed
thou art a Jewel."
"Inside" Information
Tomato catsup and thick mayon
naise, mixed half and half, make a
delicious dressing for plain lettuce
and some other salads.
In choosing curtains for the living
room, select fabric that will stand
light and laundering. The colors
should tone in with the other furnish
ings in the room without making the
windows too conspicuous.
Use the juices from canned vege
tables. If the food is good, so k the
juice, and it contains valuable miner
als which the body needs. Servo the
Juice with the canned vegetables or
use it in soups, stews, or sauce:.
Loosely fitting long sleeves are
most becoming on fleshy arms. If
open at the wrists they are graceful
and comfortable. To make the nn
seem longer and more slender use
bound slashes, bands of material,
rows of buttons, etc. Sleeves gath
ered into a tight cuff with puff
effect should be avoided by the stout
Tuesday is better than Monday
for wa&h day.; A day is nee'ded in
most homes to straighten up., the
house after Sunday's relaxation, to
look over the clothes, mend tham
when necessary to prevent larger
tears, remove stains, and put the
white clothes to soak. Then an early
start can be made on the work on
Homo Pointers
If canned artichoke hearts remain
in the water they are canned in, they
turn black. The hearts are best
drained, after which cold water
poured over them.
Cups with broken handles make
excellent containers for food' that
goes into the refrigerator as they
take up much less room than a bowl
or a cup having a handle.
A silver knife used to slice banan
as apples or oranges will noj discolor
as readily as a steel knife.
To get the proper effect the floors
of a room are finished darker than
the walls and the walls darker than
the ceiling. In low rooms striped
paper is used to give an effect of
height . .
Simplicity in a small room makes
it appear larger. When the room is
too large to look cozy the wall apaces
may be broken by making panels
with moulding and painting over
both. Figure' 'i:gs will make thj
room appear still smaller.
