Athena won a decisive victory over
Pilot Rock in football by a score of
12-0 Friday, September 21, on the

then got the ball, but they were un
able to near their goal as the Athena
line held firm. In the second quart
er things did not go so well, and the
team seemed to have forgotten much
of the" instruction it had received in
practice. However, Athena made
another touchdown before the half.
In the third and fourth quarters, Ath
ena was more on the defensive,
striving to keep Pilot Rock from
making a touchdown. They were
successful, and at the end of the game
the score stood 12-0.
Coach Miller said that the reason
for the slacking up of the teamwork
in the game was due to lack of ex
perience and the fact that the system
he is teaching is new to the boys,
and they did not have much con
fidence in it or themselves. "Pike"
thinks that with more experience and
harder practice Athena will have one
of the best teams in Eastern Oregon.
The next game to be played with
Walla Walla next Friday, here, will
be a much harder game, but "Pike"
thinks with this week's practice the
boys will be more experienced and
able to put up a much better show
ing. Much credit must be given "Tuffy"

team for their splendid cooperation

From every corner of the world
they came. That valiant band of

had tried everything in life but death,

sensational mystery-melodrama of the

the air you've been waiting for. The
thrilling story of a desperate band of

In spite of the fact that Friday
was a day of the Round-Up the foot
ball game was a financial success.
The ticket sellers, Thelma Schrimpf,
Frances Cannon, Pearl' Green, and
Virgie Moore took in twenty five dol
lars and forty five cents. After the
referee had been paid seven dollars
and a half, the student body made
seventeen dollars and ninety five
A student body meeting was held
Monday, September 25. The treas
urer's and secretary's reports were
read. The executive council's report
not to fix the tennis courts till spring
was approved by the student body.
The question was brought up whether
to help the freshmen give their
annual weiner roast or let them take
all the expenses themselves. The
motion was carried by the student
body. As there was no more busi
ness the meeting adjourned.
The freshmen were initiated Tues
day evening, September 18. A num
ber of new stunts were carried out as
well as the old customs of initiation.
Each member of the class gave some
kind of a skit on the stage in the
auditorium. . Then all went to the
party room where the freshmen were
made to eat numerous things, such as
garlic and limburger cheese. The
freshmen were given an oral exami
nation on the student body constitu
tion and, because they feared a pun
ishment threatened them, all passed
fairly well. The most interesting
antics were produced when they
jumped off the floor and flopped
their hands for a certain length of
time. Each boy, on his hands and
knees, with a girl riding on his back,
then had to push a bean with his
nose across the gym floor. The
freshmen are now thankful they are
full fledged members of the high
school, although they all seemed to
enjoy the initiation.
The high school and eighth grade
held an assembly Friday morning,
September 21, for the purpose of
creating pep and enthusiasm for the
football game. Speeches were given
by each member of the football squad
who could be persuaded to do so. A
number of yells were given in honor
of the boys and the coach.
The freshmen have decided to hold
their annual weiner roast for the
student body Wednesday, October 3,
at Thornhollow. ' -- '-
