SENIORS AND SOPHOMORES WIN.
One of the greatest events of the
school year was the presenting of two
debates between the junior-senior and
sophomore-freshman debating teams.
The senior team, composed of Orrin
Bisbee, Marjorie Clark and Mary Rit
chie, with Louise Thomson and Earle
Ayers as alternates, entered the lists
against the junior team, supported by
Marvin Gammell, Bobby Turner and
Claud Conder with Mae Doherty and
Gerald Slocum, alternates. The sub
ject was: Resolved, The United States
cabinet is operating unsuccessfully.
The seniors supported the negative
and the juniors the affirmative. Tha
judges were Mrs. Jeff Beamer, Earl
Gordon and Milton W. Bower. Two
time-keepers were chosen from the
faculty. The chairman was the prin
cipal of the high school, Harold John
sen. The first speaker for the affirmative,
Marvin Gammell, opened the debate
with a very well formed speech. He
gave his discussion in a decisive man
ner, and time was called before he
was through. The first speaker for
the negative was Orrin Bisbee, who
maintained his ability as a debater
of high standing. As second speak
er for the affirmative, Claud Conder.
who had one of the best arguments,
set forth a number of reasons for the
successful cabinet in the U. S.. M
jorie Clark, second speaker for the
negative, impressed the audience with
her stage-presence and excellent man
ner of delivery. Her plea is consid
ered about the best for the negative.
Bobby Turner was the third speaker
for the affirmative and upheld the
cause so well that he seemed the hero
of the juniors. Yet his speech was
readily torn to pieces by Mary Rit
chie third speaker for the negative
side of the discussion. By the time
Mary was through, Bob's speech lay
stranded. Orrin closed the negative
with a well planned rebuttal. His
witty sayings carried out his point of
view decidedly well. Closing the de
bate Marvin gave the rebuttal for the
affirmative. This 'was a very strong
rebuttal, but time was called on Mar
vin when he was just getting warmed
up. The judges' decision was two for
the negative and one affirmative. The
debate was very close, almost result
ing in a draw. The seniors realize
they were nearly equalled by the ju
niors, who have been proving their
abilities all year. This debate was
held last Thursday, February 3.
The freshmen and sophomores met
on Friday. The freshman team was
composed of Fletcher Walker, Evelyn
Swindig and Katherine Bisbee, with
Mary Beamer and John Parker as al
ternates. The sophomores had some
trouble in deciding on debaters, as
those who were first appointed could
not serve. Dorothy Herren substi
tuted for Paul Jones, and Terrel
Benge for Harlan Devin, the third
member being Margaret Notson. The
alternates were Clarence Hayes and
Jack Casteel. The subject for this
debate was: Resolved, The Philip
pines should be given their freedom
within five years. The sophomores
upheld the affirmative and the fresh
men the negative. The judges were
Mrs. E. R. Huston, Gerald Smith and
I. V. Parker.
The first speaker for the affirmative
was Dorothy Herren, who showed her
self quite capable to present the sub
ject in a thorough fashion, proving
her points amid good stage presence.
First speaker for the negative was
Fletcher Walker. The freshmen have
a likely fellow in Fletcher, and ought
to feel justly proud of his ability.
Terrel Benge, second speaker for the
i-.ffirmative, rapidly overcame his per
plexity and scored a few points. Sec
ond negative speaker was Katherine
Bisbee, whose aptness readily con
vinced one that she was on her job
every minute. Katherine is living up
to the name Orrin has made as a de
bater. Margaret Notson, as third
speaker for affirmative, gave a very
fine argument, showing the freshmen
they were under rapid fire, Evelyn
Swindig was the negative third speak
er, and presented her speech in a
convincing manner. Katherine Bis
bee gave the rebuttal and closing for
the negative. Dorothy Herren closed
the debate in the affirmative rebuttal
and gave a very decisive delivery. The
decision of the judges was two for
the affirmative and one for the nega
tiv. The decision for both these de
bates was very close, and they all
showed hard work on the part of the
students and advisers. A hearty co
operation was felt throughout the
preparation. The debates were well
received, and proved quite profitable,
not only to the debators, but also n
the students listening.
More Debates to be Held.
On Monday, February 14, the losers
of the past two debates, the juniors
and freshmen, will- meet in debate on
the following question: Resolved:
The cabinet system of state govern
ment should be adopted in Oregon
The juniors uphold the negative and
the freshmen the affirmative. Then,
Tuesday, the fifteenth, the winners,
sophomores and seniors, meet, debat
ing the same question.- The sopho
mores have the negative and the sen
iors the affirmative.
These debates determine the state
championship and the P. T. A. cup.
The winners are debating for the first
and second places, and the losers for
third and fourth. The district ques
tion for debate is the same as for
these two debates.
FOOTBALL LETTERS AWARDED.
On Wednesday, February 2nd, the
football boys were rewarded for their
hard knocks and fine playing on the
football field last fall. Coach John
son presented fifteen letters and one
monogram to the boys, in the pres
ence of the student body. A mono
gram is given any boy winning a let
ter for three consecutive years. The
boy to receive this honorable award
was Eugene Doherty. We rest as
sured that Eugene won this with hard
work and many a bruise, for he told
us something about that in a talk
before the assembly. Those to receive
letter are: Bob Turner, Terrel Benge,
Delvin Adkins, Howard Evans, Dick
Wightman, Stephen Thompson, Ones
Parker, Marvin Gammell, Merle Beck-
et, Red Bramer, Paul Jones, Harold
Erwin, Harold Gentry, Bill Bucknum,
and Gerald Slocum,
Bill Bucknum, captain of the team,
gave a short talk in which he ex
pressed his appreciation of the back
ing by the team and studnt body at
large. .-Coach Johnson then gave in
some detail the meaning and pn":l
ege of wearing these letters. Ho
said that everyone should remember,
when seeing the letters, the work, the
trials and hardships these have un
dergone, to gain the recognition, hon
or and privilege of wearing them. He
also brought out the point, that each
member of Heppner high should feel
that they have a part in these letters
and therefore should be just as proud
that these boys are wearing them for
the student body helped make the
tejm have the fighting spirit.
Student Council Meeting.
A meeting of the Student Council
was called by the student body presi
dent, Merie Becket. The purpose of
the meeting was to discuss the He
hisch. It was decided that a Hehisch
would be put out this year. Louise
Thomson was appointed editor-in-
Jasper Crawford, advertising man
ager of the Gazette Times, was pres
ent at the Heppnerian staff meeting
held Monday afternoon in the library.
He gave pointers on how news notes
should be written and showed some of
the weak points of news writing to be
avoided at all times. The members
of the staff were greatly benefited by
his talk and the Heppnerian will
profit by it.

Pandemics of influenza usually have
their origin in the East, beginning in
Asia and travelling westward until
they have encompassed the world. In
fluenza has been epidemic in Europe
for the past three weeks. The epi
demic is reported as severe and that
pneumonia is a frequent complication.
The spread of influenza depends upon
two principal conditions the pres
ence of the infective agent and sus
ceptible individuals. The rate of
transmission depends on the proxim
ity of communities and the intimacy
of contact between individuals. In
fluenza is, undoubtedly, spread
through the secretions and discharges
from the nose and mouth of persons
suffering from influenza, or from
those of a carrier, which gain en
trance to the respiratory tract of oth
er individuals. Droplet infection may
easily occur if susceptible individuals
are in close enough proximity to re
ceive the particles given off in sneez
ing, coughing, talking, laughing, or
through any other means whereby
they are forcibly expelled from the
mouth and nose.
Influenza attacks its victims in suc
cession. It is brought by some mem
ber of the family into the home, and
is conveyed to other members of the
familv directly or through those
whom he has infected.
Objects which have been recently
contaminated with discharges from
the nose and mouth are important
agents in conveying the virus. As in
common colds and other respiratory
infections an innumerable number of
articles may be soiled with influenzal
discharges. The hands are a fre
quent means of conveyance, both by
the direct and indirect route. It
