Thursday night seemed to be the
jinx for the basketball-teers and au
tomobiles. There was quite a delay
getting the girls down to Lexington
because of frozen radiators and bum
The Lexington girls have a good
team and though Heppner played a
hard game ill-fate was against her.
The game started out with Hazel Mc
Paid and Joy Erwin, forwards, Freda
Akers and Mary Ritchie, guards, and
Mae Groshens and Anna McDid, cen
ters. At the end of the half the score
was 17-5 in favor of Lexington. j
Before the last half was ended Mae
Groshens took Freda Akers' place at
guard, Freda being put out because
of too many personal fouls. Joy Er
win then took Mae's place in the cen
ter and the game proceeded as before
ending with a score of 18-2S in Lex
ington's favor.
Lexington's lineup: Mabel Wright
and Doris Wilcox, forwards, Eulah
McMillan and Erma Duvall, centers,
Gwen Evans and Elsie Tucker, guards.
Mae Groshens had the misfortune
of burning her hands last Monday
while working in the chemistry lab
oratory. She was filling a small bot
tle with hydrochloric acid when the
bottle overflowed and acid was spilled
on her hands. She had them ban
daged by a doctor and although it
will probably be some time before
they are entirely healed, they are im
proving greatly.
The appropriations for the new
gymnasium have caused Orrin Bisbee
and Marvin Wightman many sleepless
nights, as they are now being tried
for embezzling some money intended
for the new gym. The accused are
defended by Marjorie Clark while
Merle Becket upholds the state. Wit
nesses for the defendant are Louise
Thomson, Edna Vaughn, Tom Wells,
and Earl Ayers. The state witnesses
are Mae Groshens, Joy Erwin, Grace
Buschke and Bill Bucknum. Two
witnesses from the history class were
called to testify for the defendants.
They were Marvin Gammell and Letha
Hmtt. The evidence has been com
pleted and the jury will give their
verdict today.
Coasting Party.
Tuesday evening a number of up
per classmen staged another sleighing
party at the home of Joy and Harold
Erwin. They met at Margaret Smith's
whence they embarked in cars pro
ided by the boys. The coasting was
good although the moon failed to ap
pear. To remedy the slight darkness
a gasoline lantern was stationed mid
way on the decline. This proved to
be a guiding beacon, although several
barely missed colliding.
When the merry crowd tired of
coasting and had tried their luck at
skiing, they returned to the house
where a warm fire awaited them.
Some tried their luck a tskating but
found the creek was not frozen hard
enough for this. After an hour or
two pleasantly spent at bridge, five
hundred, touring and rummy, de
licious refreshments, consisting of
cookies, sandwiches and chocolate,
were served. After lunch they danced
until "Home Sweet Home" was played
at twelve o'clock when they prepared
for the trip home.
Those present were Miss Miller,
Miss Fishel, Miss Wilson, Edna
Vaughn, Mae Doherty, Margaret
Smith, Florence Bergstrom, Patricia
Mahoney, Eva Hiatt, Mae Groshens,
Mary Ritchie, Gerald Slocum, Joe
Urosnan, Robert Turner, Ellis Thom
son, Onez Parker, John Turner, Gene
Doherty and Demn Adkins.
Honor Roll.
To have one's name on the Honor
Roll is an honor for which every stu
dent strives. The class books are an
excellent record of one's accomplish
ments in school. The Honor Roll for
the past semester is as follows:
First Honor Roll: Orrin Bisbee,
5 A's; Marjorie Clark, 4 A's, Mary
Keamer, 4 A's.
Second Honor Roll: Katherine Bis
bee, 3 A's and 1 B; John Conder, 2
A's and 2 B's; Fletcher Walker, 2 A's
and 2 B's; Evelyn Swendig, 2 A's and
2 B's; Rosella Doherty, 1 A and 3
B's; Elizabeth Elder, 1 A and 3 B's.
Joe Swindig, Gordon Bucknum, Har
old Gentry, Jeanette Turner, Wini
fred Thomson, Louise Langdon, Marie
Kirk, Teresa Breslin, Opal Stapleton
and Doris Hiatt are staggering under
the importance of being real high
school students. They are the new
sub-freshman class, the first being
organized last year. They are also
the only class promoted in the middle
of the year in the county. They are
to have no class organization but this
dark cloud has its silver lining in the
fact that they will have no dues to
pay. They look as if they were in a
new atmosphere but in a short time
they will become full fledged stu
The Lexington quintet defeated the
Heppner boys in a fast game of bas-
ketball last Friday night on their
home floor. The frosty air only
seemed to make the game faster. Both
teams played a defensive game as
shown by the low score of 7 to 6. Be
ing no individual stars in either team
the game was more interesting to the
fans. There was a good turnout of
Heppner backers and local fans de
spite he cold night. The score at the
quarter stood 3 to 0 in favor of Lex
ington at the end of the first quarter;
3 to 0 at the end of the half. But in
the second half two baskets and one
free throw were scored by Heppner
in their rally to win the game, while
Lexington worked in a basket, mak
nig the score 5 to 5 at the end of the
third period. In the fourth period
Heppner made one point to Lexing
ton's two.
Roger Morse addressed the student
body last Friday afternoon concern

Some time ago Superintendent Bur
gess was apponited chairman o the
Umatilla debate" district comprising
the schools of Morrow and Umatilla
counties. These schools will debate
on the proposition, "Resolved, that
Oregon should adopt a cabinet form
of Government." On February 10.
Pendleton will hold a debate with Mc
Laughlin Union High. Heppner, lone
and Hermiston will stage a triangular
debate about the same time.
Several elections took place this
week in the societies and classes.
Those elected fur the new semester
in the Arion Literary society were
president, Bob Turner; vice-president,
John Conder; secretary, Velma Fell;
treasurer, Terrel Benge; sergeant-at-arms,
Merle Becket. In the respective
order those elected for the Heppner
ian Literary society were Aiarvin
Gammell, Joy Erwin, Reta Crawford,
Margaret Smith, and Claud Conder.
The officers for sophomores are pres
ident, Clarence Hayes; vice-president,
Norma Short; secretary-treasurer,
Margaret Notson; sergeant-at-arms,
Harlan Devin. Junior elections took
place last week, and have already
been announced. The seniors and
freshmen have not elected officers yet
but will do so soon.
The Arion Literary society held a
hot-dog sale in the lower hall of the
school building Wednesday noon, and
all those who have been thirsting, or
starving, perhaps, for hot-dogs, were
rewarded by the sale. Those in the
society proved their ability at such
8n art, while the society profited
as a whole in the helping out of fi-.
all such veterans may, in some man
ner, be properly informed, I urge all
citizens, particularly employers, the
;n ess, labor organizations, women s
associations, professional groups, and
civic and patriotic bodies, to secure
full information and use such means
of informing the veterans as may be
most etTective.
In witness whereof I have hereunto
set my hand and caused the seal of
the United States to be affixed.

ings of Pendleton Produce & Packing
Company, a corporation, bankrupt, di
rected to those stockholders of the
company who have not paid up their
stock subscriptions, to appear at Pen

mately $44,123.83 as set out in the
order, that have been allowed to date,
besides other sums aggregating
thousands of dollars, claims for which
have not been proved. The order
places a value of $10,000 upon the

Proclamation for Week
of Jan, 31st-Feb. 7th.
By the President of the United States
of America
During the World War the United
States Government insured, at an ex
ceedingly low premium rate, nearly
6,000,000 members of the armed forces
of the country against death or total
permanent disability. The insurance
thus granted was for the greater pro
tection of the insured and their de
pendents than was offered in the com
pensation, independently of insurance
and unconnected therewith, which
was provided for death or disability
resulting from personal injury, or
disease contracted in the military ser
Statutory provision was made for
the continuance of this war risk io
surance after the termination of the
war, and its conversion within a lim
ited time into such form or forms of
insurance, usually issued by life in
surance companies, as the insured
might request. Many veterans do not
seem to have had knowledge of this
continuing privilege, and for one rea
son or another have permitted their
war risk insurance to lapse. Under
the terms provided for the reestab
lishment of lapsed insurance, normal
health conditions will permit rein
statement upon the payment of two
monthly premiums; and for those
whose service disabilities render
them otherwise not insurable, and
who are not permanently and totally
disabled, provision is made for rein
statement upon the payment of pre
miums and interest for the period of
lapse. Even these payments may be
temporarily waived for those whose
resources do not permit immediate
The law provides that the reinstate
ment of war risk insurance which has
lapsed shall be made after July 2,
1927. After that date, such war risk
term insurance can not be reinsated.
On or prior to that date, therefore,
such insurance must be reinstated and
converted, at the election of the ap
plicant, into one or more of the seven
standard forms of life insurance pro
vided by the Government. If such
insurance is now in force, the insured
must convert it into one of the forms
above mentioned on or before the
above date.
The potential protective value of
the insurance thus provided is appar
ent, as affecting the future economic
ar.d domestic welfare of veterans and
heir dependents. Provision is made
for extended insurance, paid up val
ues, loan values, cash-surrender val
ues, and dividend participation. No
premium is charged during total per
manent disability. Thousands of our
national defenders are passing on
each year. All veterans of the World
War should be generally and fully in
formed of their right to procure the
safe and certain protection for them
selves and their dependents of the in
surance afforded by the Government.
Detailed information with reference
to such insurance may be obtamed
from the central office of the United
States Veterans' Bureau, Washington,
D. C, or from its regional offices lo
cated throughout the country.
Wherefore, I, Calvin Coolidge,
President of the United States, do
hereby designate the period January
31 to February 7, 1927, as the time
during which special effort should be
made to inform all veterans of the
World War of the right they have to
reinstate lapsed war risk insurance,
and to convert it into United States
Government life insurance; and, that
