The double-header basketball game
played with Lexington last Friday is
a sad story, but the tragic tale must
The girls came was peppy and fast
throughout, no hard feeling being
held by either team. Until nearly the !
close of the second quarter the score
alternated in favor of Lexington and
Heppner. Neither team kept the ball
long, the passes and throws of both
sides being intercepted by the op
posing team. Near the end of the
second quarter Lexington gained on
Heppner and kept the lead through
out the game. Doris Flynn took An
na French's place as center in the
last half and Agnes McDaid was put
in Blanche Gros hen's place as side
Velie Ward was Lexington's star
player, making most of their score.
Fay Ritchie and Nellie Flynn played j
a good game for Heppner. The game
ended with a score of 17-10 in Lex

do credit to a Harvard-Yale clash?)
The game was very one-sided, Hepp
ner being handicapped by the small
floor and crowded ball. Boyd, Hepp
ner's center, had to be taken out be
cause of a bad knee he received in
football, and Aiken was substituted
for him. Lexington added to her
score by leaps and bounds and still
Heppner's score remained the goose

Heppner's second team was put in.
A slight score was made by Heppner
in the last quarter and the game end

Lexington. Heppner played a hard
and sportsmanlike game even after
they knew they were beaten.
Discouraged or ashamed of our
team? No!! We have a team to be

of being the cleanest and most sports

Mr. President, I make no claim to
knowledge of international affairs.
My activities while a member of this
body have been confined to domestic
issues, particularly with reference
to agricultural undertakings; but l
have held to the belief that after the
termination of the world-wide war
our policy of isolation has been too
severe for the good of ourselves and
the welfare of the world. 1 know full
well that this belief will arouse the
opposition of the international states
men's bloc, found among the inteilec
tuals of the United States Senate. I
have no doubt that the great majority
of the farmers and laborers and busi
nessmen of the country will look with
favor upon any plan constructed to
bring about the economic rehabilita
tion of world affairs.
Mr. President, I shall never know
whether it was tha stubbornness of
our distinguished President, Wood
row Wilson, the perversity of the
able senior Senator from Massachu-
setts Mr. Lodge), or the eloquence
of the irreconcilable Senators that
provented the ratification of the Ver
sailles treaty, yet I shall always
think that much' of the unrest and
hatred existing among the nations
at this time would not have occurred
if that treaty containing the coven
ant of the League of Nations, with
the Lodge reservations, had been rat
ified. Having that view, I can not per
suade myself to oppose any confer
ence which I believe would work for
a better understanding among the
nations of the world, even though
uch a conference calls upon this
Government to play an important
role. The result of the Conference
on the Limitation of Armament, held
this city 13 months ago, aroused
the antagonism of many learned and
patriotic statesmen of this country.

The revival is starting off in fine
shape. Good crowds with good in
terest at every service. The visit of
the Heppner people and their inspir
ing song on Monday evening showed
a fine sipirt on their part. The good
ly representation of high school stu
dents that came on Tuesday with the
professor and wife was also greatly
appreciated. These services will con
tinue every night until further an

Sunday at the usual hour.
Everybody finds a welcome as long

products have moved to various na
tions in considerable abundance.
This statement I shall accept as a
verity. Owing to improved methods
of farming and labor-saving mac run
ery, farm production is greater than
formerly, and in consequence there
of a ereater quantity is available
for exportation and must be exported
to permit the residue to demand and
receive a fair and profitable price.
The surplus would be absorbed by
other countries if proper credits
national, corporate, or otherwise
could be arranged. I do not advocate

if the reparations which Germany
owes were reduced to a point where
he can pay, thereby restoring the

labors ot tms conference will prove
beneficial beyond the expectations of
its most ardent advocates; and I ex

of various war-shocked nations, would
