High School Notes
By Stafford Hatisell
The beginning of school brings
many things, new teachers, new sub
jects, and many other things but one
of the most pleasant is the new foot
ball season. Football is not one of
those subjects that is taught in -the
school but one of the "activities" that
the school akes part in.
Athena is this year preparing for a
bigger and better football year. With
a large squad of men and with a fair
amount of experience much is expect
ed. It is only fair" that the people of
Athena Bhould give considerable at
tention to this home. team. The
schedule brines one of the best
schools in Eastern Oregon to Athena
this Saturday. For, several years they
have been either tied or first in East
ern Oregon competition. This is un
doubtedly Athena's golden opportunity
to win fame and glory.
One of the main things that a team
must have to be successful is backing
of the borne people. In the larger
towns many of the business houses
close in order to attend the
game. It is attended practically by all
of them. Athena if is ever to attain
higher hjghts in school activities we
must follow the example of the bigger
schools. It is considerable encourage
ment for the football player to see the
prominent business men. on the side
line. It will not be too much effort to
come to the game and it will show
good community spirit so wouldn't it
be a good idea to close the doors and
prepare to come to the game, Satui

The different classes will engage in
a campaign to sell ticrets ior ine
Mac Hi-Athena game this Saturday.

elected two members to conduct the
campaign. Advance tickets will be sold
from door to door. A prize will be
given to the winners.
The Freshmen entertained the rest
of the student body at a weiner roast
Friday. September 12. Nearly all the
students and teachers managed to- get
to Thorn Hollow where it was held.
Games and "eats" formed the major
diversions of the evening.
The Sophmores have met several
times and have announced that the in
itiation will take place Friday night,
September 19. The Freshmen are all
anxiously awaiting the traditional exercises.
The Order of the "A," an honorary
organization open to winners, of an
AH for student activities, met and
elected officers. The officers elected
were Jack Moore, president; Stafford
Hansell, vice-president; and Myrtle
The Athena schedule opens Satur
day, September 20 with a game be
tween the Pioneers of McLoughlin
high school of Miltan-Freewater and
our own warriors. Intense rivalry has
always been the key word between
these two schools. Ior the first time
in five or six years, Athena feels able
to play them on a fairly even basis:
Athena will have a fairly heavy team
as heavy as Mac Hi's in all proba
bilities. Our own boys are flying in
to it with a determination and even
if they do not win they will give an
exhibition of football that will be
