School spirit is the one intangible
thing in school life which influences
those interested in the school but
not directly connected with it, in
their opinions as to the progressive
ness of a school aa well as the com
munity in which it is located.
School spirit may be shown in
many ways, but we think the most im
portant of these is sportsmanship.
Everyone likes and respects a good
sport and we all try to be good sports
but we sometimes fall short of our
aim. Have you ever gone away from
home to play ball and having been vic
torious heard some one on the losing
side say, "Well, we are just as good
losers as we are winners"? Did it
not give you a different feeling tow
ard the team than it would if they
had become angry and talked about
getting a "dirty dal"? A ball player
was once heard to make that remark
and it entirely changed the attitude
of the hearer toward the team, the
school, and the town. Suppose we
reverse the circumstances and the
team visiting us is victorious. Would
it not give our school a better name
il we remember that some one must
lose and that the best man wins? No
team either winning or losing likes
to be "raized" and we will find that
we have many more friends if we Te
frain from this kind of a reception
to our visiting team. Remember it
takes a good sport to lose as well as
Pep and whole-hearted support are
other forms of school spirit which
help make a high school of which we
are proud. If there is a large num
ber of rooters who are full of enthu
siasm and who are not afraid to let
people know they are there, and if
there is a whole string of subs on the
bench, wouldn't a visitor be likely to
say to himself, "The team has back
ing enough. It surely ought to win";
and if you were on the team wouldn't
you feel like fighting much harder?
' This spirit can be shown not only
in athletics but in all other school
activities as well. The teachers and
the presidents of the various classes,
clubs and societies would find their
work much easier if everyone would
do his or her part. When asked to
do something they should go at it
with their whole heart and not do just
what is the easiest and interferes
the least with their comfort or pleas
ure. A good motto by which any
school might benefit is, "If everyone
in this school was just like me, what
would this school be like?" No on
cares very much for a knocker or a

P. T. A. Social.
Following the Parent Teachers'

held in the music room. Several mu
sical selections were given, among
these being a violin solo by Esther

Heppner will journey to Hermiaton
tomorrow to match their skill with
the Hermiston high school eleven.
Heppner is depending on their boys
to make a better showing this game
than at the previous games and wants
the whole school behind them.
The number of honor roll students
in Heonner grammar school was un
usually good, the first grade having
11; second grade 22; third grade 7;
4th grade, not represented; 6th grade
16; 8th grade 8; 7th grade 6, and the
8th grade 6.
lone and Heppner played their an
nual football game last Saturday,
both playing a close game with
neither side getting very close to the
goal line in the first half of the bat
tle. The only time that Heppner was
threatened was in the first quarter
when lone started to drop kick. G.
Ritchie, Ione's quarter back, dropped
one over from the thirty yard line,
making the score 3-0.
In the second quarter, lone attempt
ed two more drop kicks, but both
failed. Heppner backed them to their
own goal line and when trying to punt
out of danger, Doherty broke through,
blocked the punt and knocked it over
the goal line for a safety, scoring two
points for Heppner. the only two they
got in the game. The referee and the
umpire had a dispute over the safety,
the referee putting the ball into play

could not make first down, which
forced them to put the ball into lone

The last part of the quarter was
pretty tight, neither side getting close

The last quarter was more exciting
with each team more determined than
ever, but neither seemed able to make
much headway until lone broke loose

Heppner the ball on their 40 yard

To stop Ione's scoring punch, Hepp
ner sent in two subs, Hisler for Gen

these fresh men with Evans who sub

more pep into Heppner's tired team,
