TYCH VALLEY HIGH SCHOOI
, The entire High school went to
Shaniko last Friday afternoon for
the return football game with the
Shaniko-Antelope boys. The game
was hotely contested from the etart
The Tygh boys, however, were out
played and the final tcore was 6-0
in favor of the Shaniko-Antelope
boys. On Tuesday afternoon the
Tygh Valley High school went to
Dufur for a practice game with the
strong and fast Dufur High school
team. In this game the Tygh boys
showed a marked improvement and
lost their chance to score only by a
mistake in signals. They did make
yardage consistantly and at one
time had the ball within eight yards
of their opponents' goal. The Tygh
boys ran a poor interference and
were decidely weak on defensive
playing. They somehow have not
learned to use their heads. They
are game fighters and decidedly
good sports. The final score was 7
to 0 in favor of Dufur. The game
was referred by Mr. George of the
Dufur schools. Mr. George is one
of those rare men who can referee a
game in which his own team is
terested and yet never give nor take
from either team. We of Tygh Val
ley have for him a very high regard.
The Tygh boys play three more
games of football, all of which will
be on their own grounds and the last
of which will be with Maupin on No
vember the eighteenth. They then
go in for basketball.
As stated previously in these
. notes, Tygh will run three basketball
teams: a High school boys' team, a
Junior boys' team, and a team com
posed of High school girls. We are
now scheduling the games. We of I ball ever held in this extremity of
Tygh consider , properly conducted Wasco county. The game was an
athletics very helpful to boys and jeven contest after the first touch
girls and a good preparation for the i down of the locals. Our boys threat
battle of life. It encourages young icned to cross the goal of their op
people to observe the laws of health, ponents a second time and the Tygh
because without health they can not aggregation made a pretty, march
compete successfully as members of ( down our twenty-five yard line in
the different teams. The writer has ,the last quarter.. Both teams show-
known boys to voluntarily discard
cirtain bad habits because those ha
bits' interfered with their success as
athletes. Athletic contests develop
those habits that are most necessary
to success in the battle of life, such
as courage, self-reliance, . stick-to-it-iveness,
quick and accurate thinking,
good sportsmanship, and most im
portant of all, honesty. Athletic
coaches who permit boys to be crook
ed, to say nothing of, encouraging
trickery, should be discharged, and
honest men secured in their places.
Unfair tactics of any kind shoald
never be permitted.
New equipment for the science
department has just lately arrived
at the High school. The young peo
ple stem to enjoy this subject most
of all. They delight to perform ex
periments. Next Tuesday, Nevember the
eighth is homecoming evening for the
Tygh Valley Rebekahs. Visitors are
more than welcome. Friendship
rules at Tygh. We want our rela
tions with our neighbors to be most
cordial and friendly and we are
ready to do our full part to make
such a condition real.
We are informed that C. D. Buck
ley of Sherman county has purchased
in-;the Rondeau farm and will soon be
an inhabitant of Tygh. That he will
be a most valuable addition to the
business life of the community we
are very certain. Tygh is slowly
coming into its own. , ,

ippeared at the table, they made a
?osy-cheeked and happy-eyed group.
Th eats were great, the main attrac

Song lover then gathered around
