Rev. Edwards from Walla Walla
was visitor in Hardman last Sat
urday and Sunday. Church services
were held Saturday evening with a
large attendance. Sunday morning,
plans were made for a Sunday school.
Mrs. Floyd Adams was elected pres
ident, Mrs. McCarty, vice president,
Laura Williams, secretary and treas
urer and Beth Bleakman, organist.
Teachers were also elected for the
respective classes. Singing services
were held that evening. There was
a fair attendance.
We hope that the Sunday school
will prove a success this year. Sev
eral attempts have been made to es
tablish a Sunday school in Hardman,
but each has been a failure, because
of small attendance and lack of in
terest shown by the people.
A community is seriously lacking
without some form of church service.
Since Sunday school is now organized
every one should do his part to sup
port the work. Appreciation of Mr.
Edwards' efforts will be shown by
the regular attendance at Sunday
school and singing, services, in the
future. The progress and well being
of society is based on the home, the
school and the church.
The most effective way in which
we can show our interest is in at
tending. If attendance is difficult or
impossible our interest can be shown
by encouraging others to go. Finan
cial contibutions are also necessary
for this work. No institution can
exist or progress without the sup
port and interest of its surrounding

always a great handicap, and espe
cially is it so with an inexperienced
team. Our boys will have difficulty
finding the basket as our rims are
six inches lower than regulation, on
account of the low ceiling.
The following boy-s will mak3 the
trip: Laurence Williams, Harlan
Adams, Neal Knighten, Verl larrens,
Kenneth Batty, Forrest Adam, r.r,d
The basketball game with Board
man, scheduled for Feb. 12, has been
called off, because of sickness tnere.
A dance will be given by the Hard
man grade school, Saturday, February
6. The popular Anderson orchestra
from lone has been hired. After the
dance a delicious supper will be
As there are no other dances to be
given in any nearby towns, a large
crowd is expected.
With the time right, the music ex
cellent and the supper delicious, this
dance should prove to be the most
successful of any given in Hardman
this year. "On with the dance."
Mr. and Mrs. Blaine Chapel have
gone on an extended trip to Portland.
