Monday, February 14, was the time
of the third interclass debate. The
debating teams were the losers
of the past two debates, the fresh
men and junior classes. The question
at stake was: Resolved, the cabinet
form of government should be adopt
to by Oregon. The freshmen upheld
the affirmative and the juniors the
negative. The freshman team was the
same as for the first debate, Evelyn
Swindig, Katherine Bisbee and Flet
cher Walker, with alternates, Mary
Beamer and John Parker. The junior
team was slightly changed, Gerald
Slocum, Bobby Turner and Marvin
Gammell, with alternates, Mae Doher
ty and Claud Conder. Monday was
surely blue for the juniors. To begin
with, Bobby Turner was ill, but hero
ically came to defend his cause. Then
Miss Miller, the junior class advisor,
became unexpectedly ill at the noon
hour, and had to return home. Just
before the debate was staged, Bobby
was sent home, and alternate Claud
Conder took his place. Amid all this
gloom, the juniors bravely kept heart
and the debate continued in a well
presented manner. However, the
freshmen carried off the honors, win
ning third place, and the juniors tak
ing fourth. The judges for this de
bate were vawter Crawford, C. L.
Sweek and Gerald Smith.
On Tuesday, the fifteenth, the se
niors met the sophomores, with the
high school championship and P. T.
A. cup at stake. The seniors carried
the honors by a unanimous decision
of the judges. This class has won
the high school championship three
times; if they have a hard time find
ing hats to fit, you may know the rea
The senior team was the same as
for last week, Marjorie Clark, Mary
Kitchie and Orrin Bisbee, with alter
nates, Louise Thomson and EaTle
Ayers. The sophomores were slight
ly changed, Jack Casteel taking Ter-
rel Benge's place( Margaret Notson
and Dorothy Herren, with alternates
Terrel Benge and Clarence Hayes,
The subject for this debate was the
same as the freshmen and juniors
debated on Monday. Many times we
overlook the alternates in the dis
tinction of a debate being won, but
their aid in preparing the debates
should not be disregarded.
Not a small amount of excitement
was caused -by this debate. The Be
niors wanted to uphold their reputa
tion, while the aophomores visioned
the glory that would be theirs should
they defeat such noteworthy opdoii-
ents. The judges for this debate
were Mrs. Helen M. Walker, Joe Nys
and Kev. B. Stanley Moore. Th
chairman for both debates was the
principal, Harold Johnson, and time
keepers were chosen from the faculty.
Heppner Girls Outwitted by lone.
The Heppner girls journeyed to
lone Wednesday night to try their
luck against the lone girls in basket
ball. The game started at 7:30 with
Eristow of lone refereeing. The game
was snappy and by the end of the half
the score was 10-8 in favor of Hepp
ner. Due to several fouls on Hepp
ner's part, the score stood at the end
of the game 10-11 in favor of lone.

The latest dispatch from -.he "con
servatory of music" of Heppner High
states that the operetta "The the Gar
den of the Shah" is progressing in its
stages of development quite as well
as can be expected. Miss Wright has
chosen the piano accompanist, who
has arrived in Heppner to begin her
work with the operetta. The noted
pianist that has been Becured is Mme.
Marjorie Clarke, recently of the An
nabel Denn studio of Heppner, or
Paris (?). The cast feels quite proud
to boast such an accomplished musi
cian, and feel they will be able to do
justice to the operetta.
Don't fail to see Sam, whose witty
actions will drive the wrinkles from
any knitted brow.
English VI and VIII Newspapers.
The senior and junior English
classes under Miss Fishel have been
constructing their own newspapers.
Each department in a regular daily
newspaper was assigned to a certain
number of Btudents who wrote up the
stories in news style. Among the de
partments were: General news, so
ciety events, editorials, want ads, ad
vertisements, motion picture news,
and advice to the lovelorn. Many of
these were very amusing as the Btu
dents of the high school were typified
as movie stars, divorcees, and great
men and women, receiving full page
items about themselves.
Typing Contest to be Held.
The second Eastern Oregon Typing
contest will be held at Pendleton on
March 6. The participants allowed
to appear in this contest are classed
in two divisions the Amateur and
Novice. The Amateur division con
sists of those students who had no
typing previous to August 1, 1925,
While the Novice division is open to
those who had no typing before Aug
ust 1, 1926. Each school is permitted
to enter two students in each division.
Miss Pearson, local high school typ
ing instructor, has chosen Orrin Bis
bee to enter the Amateur division and
Marjorie Clark and Mary Ritchie to
enter the Novice, from her classes.
Many schools of Eastern Oregon
are participating in the contest which
has created quite an interest and
much enthusiasm among high school
typing students. Such contests are of
great value, for they raise the stand
ards of accuracy and speed in the
arious typing classes, and give the
riudents valuable experience.
This contest will cover a period of
fifteen minutes' continuous typhi;?.
The students are to take their own
machines, which arc not to have any
uncommon mechanical devices, such
as loud bells, etc., attached. An award
will be given Ine ttudent having the
least number of errors with not less
than forty words a m.nute. The con
test is open to th general pubhe.
Friday aiternoon a short period
was given over to the commemoration
of the birth of Abraham Lincoln. The
entire assembly, led by the Glee Clubs
sang several patriotic songs, accom
panied by Miss Wright at the piano.
An important part of the program
was the reading of an essay on Lin
coln by Reta Crawford. Reta's es
say, which was the prize winner in a
contest between the junior and senior
English classes, presented a most
pleasing resume of the career of
F'resident Lincoln. Reta is to be
awarded a beautiful bronze medal by
the Elgin Watch Co. It is the policy
of the company to present a medal to
the winner of this contest in every
high school in the United States,
thereby encouraging research into
the life of this most loved president.
Wednesday afternoon a vote will
be taken as to -which was the greater
man, Washington or Lincoln. This is
an extremely interesting subject, fos
tering much consideration on the part
of the students. The result of the
vote will be published next week.
