"Iook her over boys: She's a peach!
Nothing less than $".50 for this one!"
Auctioneers Don Case and Puck Lee
started off last Saturday's .pie social
with a bang: ihe first pie went for 13.50
and as each lady stepped up on the
platform between the light and the cur
tain, the bidding for the right to eat
the pie w ith the maker of the shadow
en the curtain would begin. The pies
wont well at nrst but along toward the
last they did not go so well, owing to
the fact that the would-be purchasers
were short on "dough'' or already had
one or two pies, and girls, to attend to.
After Cashier Mahoney had pulled In
the last nickel and "Bud" Wilkinson
had delivered the last pie, a contest to
determine who ws the most beautiful
girl present, who was the starchiest girl
the homiiest man and the man with the
rirtiest face. Florence Cason received
ihe largest number of votes as the most
beautiful girl rresent and was present
ed with a fine box of candy. Coramae
Crawford was proclaimed the starchiest
girl and received a box of powder; Carl
Cason voted himself the homiiest man
and received a necktie for his pains,
and the final price of a bar of soap went
to Low ell McMillan as the dirtiest faced
man. The pie social then broke up and
all those concerned proceeded on their
The Juniors and Seniors aren't the
only ones who know something of jour
nalism and are doing newspaper work.
The fourth grade has been having a
splendid newspaper which is published
in class every two weeks. This is their
English work and the articles written
are saved from day to day. It Is the
wish of Mrs. Cason, their teacher, that
all the students be represented in this
work. In each number there is an edi
torial by the editor, society notes, news
from the high school and even a con
tinued story. The editor is elected by
the pupils of the room every two weeks.
The editor of the first number was Rod
erick Thomson, and of th-i second Ka
We high school students wish them
the very best success and hope they
will continue their good work.

"My! Don't the Juniors think they're 2
smart?" : ,
"What's the grand Idea?"
These were some of the comments
heard when the Juniors emerged from I
the safe shelter of their homes on Fri-'S
day, November 4.
However, they were not crazy but
were only trying to celebrate Junior,
Loud Sox Day!
An Armistice Day program was given
in the high school auditorium, Thurs
day, November ID, at one o'clock. The
high school chorus sang several of the':
songs that were popular during the;;

by one of the high Bchool students, i :
Attorney S. E. Notson gave a very in-1 :
teresting and instructive address on
"The Heals and Results of the World .!
War." and the flag salute was given by :
the high school students. j:
The Freshman pennant arrived last I
Thursday, and the Sophomores spent
the best part of their time between j
Thursday and Monday trying to And it.
However, It was well taken care of, and
presented very formally to the Fresh-: j

Faces sobered and smiles disappeared
last Friday morning when Mr. Heard
announced that the football game be
tween Heppner and Condon, to be play
ed here last Saturday, had been called
ofl on Condon's thin excuse that "men
have to work on Saturday, and conse
quently can t play." Our estimation of
Condon s team since then is not very
high, as we had already gone to the ex
pense of advertising and had also plan
ned a rally for Friday night The
Freshmen had the wood ready in the
Seld in hopes that a game might be
scheduled with rendleton, and a rally
still be held. Twenty-three people, rep
resenting the whole school, called up
the office between five and six o'clock
only to learn: "No game, no rally!" We
wonder if it is safe :o advertise games
any more, only to be turned down in

If parents wish their children to form
good reading habits they must first
form such habits themselves. And there
is no better way to do this than to bring
into the household a periodical that will
be of interest to every member of it;
that will supply the best reading for
old and young. Among the periodicals
of this description The Youth's Com
panion is unique. Not only does it aim
to entertain and inform boys and girls
in their teens as its name suggests, but
there is not a page in it that parents
can pass over with indifference.
The 52 Issues of 192S will be crowded
with serial stories, short stories, edi
torials, poetry, facts and fun. Sub
