Mis Wright has been patiently lis
tening to the try-outs for the prin
cipals in the cast of the Operetta, en
titled, "In the Garden of the Shah,"
which is to be presented in March.
Judging from the many and varied
sounds coming from the conservatory
one might think she was entertaining
a group from the Orient, for this
operetta is of an Oriental nature. It
contains that distinct, mysterious
melody, coming only from the East.
Passing the several stages of per
plexity, apprehension, joviality, and
hesitancy. Miss Wright has prudently
chosen the following cast: Marvin
Gammell will represent the Shah, that
austere gentleman m whose garden
the scene is laid. Zohdah, the daugh
ter of the Shah, will be personified by
Edna Vaughn. Grace Buschke takes
the part of Lohlah, Zohdah's friend
and confident. Nowobeh, Zohdoh's
old nurse, will be represented by Mae
Groshens. Robert Turner has been
chosen for the part of Ted Harding,
and Onez Parker as Billy Cumings,
the American free-lance and mining
engineer respectively. No perform
ance is complete without the witty
actions of a churl, and this prson is
embodied in the colored gentleman
from Texas, U. S. A., who is Ted and
Billy's servant, and is characterized
by Ellis Thomson. Likewise, a vil
lain must lend his color to the scene
and Terrel Benge represents this
knave person, disguised as an Arab
This operetta met with astounding
success at Linnfield College, McMinn
ville, Oregon, last year, and we know
that, under the able driection of Miss
Wright, it will be well worth your
presence on the night of the perform
ance, sometime in March.
Heppner vs. lone February 5.
A double header will be staged at
lone next Saturday between Heppner
and lone high schools. This prom
ises to be a good game, as the score
of the previous gams .between these
teams was very close, the lone boys
winning by a score of 8 to 5, and the
Heppner -girls winning by a score of
6 to S.
Girl Played Friday.
Last Friday evening when Hardman
town team came to Heppner to play
basketball, the girls played a game
consisting of two pick-up teams from
Heppner high school. The teams were
very evenly matched consequently the
score was close, being 1 to 7. Mr.
Johnson, the referee, was quick on
the job and was considered very fair.
Hpppner Walked On.
lone grade school basketball team
and their high school light weight
team played Heppner grade school
and light weight teams on the local
floor last Thursday night. lone won
both games by scores of 11 to 6 tnd
10 to 0 respectively.
New Student Enters High School.
A new student, Margaret Balker,
has entered the junior class of Hepp
ner high. She has een attending
Jefferson high in Portland.
American History Proceedings.
Anyone happening along and look
ing in on the American History class
at 9:46 (a. m.) would see a busy
group of students. Under the direc
tion of their teacher, Miss Miller,
they have been delving into every
American History book they can lay
hands on, seeking material on the
question of slavery. They are to com
plete a lengthy paper, neatly written,
in the near future. This paper is to
be headed, "The Changing Policy of
Congress Towards Slavery, in the
Territories, 1820 to 1857." Miss Mil
ler hopes this will lay a firm founda
tion for the study of the Civil War,
which will be taken up soon after the
debates are closed.
Preparatory to the debates, the
history class prepared two minute
talks to be given at one of their reci
tation periods. These were varied in
content and proved quite an aid in
helping the pupils to overcome stage
Miss Miller is full of bright ideas,
but we wish she would leave th'em at
home, when she comes to American
History class. Her latest fancy is to
produce an American History pageant.
She has selected four from the class
to write the pageant, and the other
members are to act it before the as
sembly at some later date. This pag
eant is a rather novel idea, we must
confess. The pageant is to cover the
period of time that slavery existed in
the United States, closing with the
Civil War. Each person will repre
sent a certain happening of historical
renown, for instance one might rep
resent the Missouri Compromise, and
a girl might represent the book, "Un
cle Tom s Cabin."
Hardman town team and Heppner
high school basketball team played
another game Friday night, the score
being 4 to 2 in Heppner s favor. Hard
man has no basketball floor, so they
met on the local court. The game
was not as fast as their first one but
both teams showed improvement since
the former encounter.
Hardman obtained the lead in the
first quarter when Dale Bleakman
scored two points for them. Neither
team scored in the second or third
quarters, but in the. fourth period
Heppner scored four points by Doher-
ty's field goal and Erwin s two foul
goals. The first game between these
two teams was won by Heppner, 10-6,
Heppnerian Staff Changes.
The staff for the high school pa
per, The Heppnerian, underwent a
change. The doctor would probably
have inserted "serious" beiote the
word "change"! Probably this should
be the case here, at any rate we are
not positive as to the outcome of this
change. Mae Doherty becomes assist
ant editor, in Kenneth Oviatt's stead,
while Kenneth takes the position of
business manager. John Conder has
been chosen as the reporter to fill
Mae's place, thus enlarging the staff
by one member. It is sincerely hoped
the change will prove a success, and
the public will be better served by
the news from Heppner's center of
