Last Friday night a good sized
crowd witnessed the first basketball
game of the season, when the Hepp
ner High school team met the fast
Hardman team on the local floor. The
Heppner boys won 10-6.
Proof that the teams were evenly
matched can be shown by the scores
during the game. At the end of the
first quarter the score stood 2 to 2,
the half ended S to 2 in favor of
Heppner. During the third quarter
the score remained very close, ending
4 to 4. It was in the last quarter
that the game became most thrilling.
Heppner started an offense that
brought the ball in for close shots.
It was then that Heppner garnered
three field baskets in short order.
Hariman in a final dashing spurt
tried to overcome the lead, but suc
ceeded in securing but one goal.
Although Hardman had but very
little practice preceding the game,
they made Heppner tighten up in the
last quarter and play real basketball.
In their final rush in tho last few
minutes of play four field goals were
made ending the game with the score
10 to 6 in favor of Heppner.

way to show one's school spirit.

Sheriff McDuffee visited the Ameri
can History class last Thursday and
talked on the subject of prohibition,
its effects, why enforced, etc. The

The reason for Mr. McDuffee's visit
was because of a statement made to
him by one of the men in town, lie
gave ideas on how the prohibition law
should be enforced, and the effects
that drinking have on the young men
as well as the older ones. Several
students asked questions which were
answered by him.
