Baseball Team Ends Season.
Heppner met Lexington Friday on
the home field for the last game of
the season. The team had suffered
three bad defeats this season; one at
the hands of Lexington, but did that
daunt our team? I should say not.
They went into the game as if they
had won all previous ones and this
one might decide the championship.
Two runs were scored in the first inn
ing by Heppner and one in the third.
The score there remained until the
fifth when Lexington scored one. In
the eighth Lexington started a rally
that netted two runs and evened the
score. For a while it looked as if
more than the regular nine innings
might be necessary in order to finish
the game, but the visitors scored
twice in the ninth, giving them a lead
of two. Even then Heppner refused
to be discouraged, and amid the
cheers of the goodly crowd in attend
once, ran in another score, but were
unable to add on the necessary runs
to win, so Lexington now has a 6-4
victory to her credit when she meets
lone in the championship game on the
Heppner field Friday, the sixth.
The baseball squad, made up large
ly of inexperienced players, is justly
proud of this season's record. From
a band of green players who scarcely
knew how to swing a bat, they have
developed into a formidable aggrega
tion. Next season offers a most prom
ising outlook as none of the squad
who played last Friday are graduat
ing this year, and some of them have
three more seasons ahead. A number
who have not played this season' will
be hot contenders for positions next
Those playing Friday were: Mar
vin Gammell, pitcher; Howard Evans,
catcher; Gerald Slocum, first; Onez
Parker, second; Nolan Turner, third;
Bob Turner, shot; "Rod" Thomson,
left field; Clarence Hayes, center;
Jim Monahan, right field.
Lexington battery was: Charles
Wilcox, pitcher, and "Pat" Nolan,
The Biology Class Picnic.
By Margaret Notson.
On the morning of the last day of
April the Biology class presented
themselves at the abode of the hi
sen )01 teacners, preparatory to en
joying a day in the mountains. The
hour of gathering was aet at seven,
but, as usual, it was later than that
when the class was aboard Benge's
truck, off for their aforesaid destin
ation. We may say they were prop
erly chaperoned, for Misses Wright
and Fishel accompanied them as well
as their teacher, Miss Pearson. They
made their camp two or three miles
above the Old Mill on Willow creek
for the best part of the picnic, the
eats. After partaking of delightful
refreshments, they wandered on up
into the mountains, stopping at the
coal mines to study the surroundings
and would have gone farther had they
r.ot run into snow. About three
o'clock in the afternoon the town was
disturbed by the return of these hi
Mr. Johnson has informed the stu
dents that the Bible exams have ar
lived from the State Department of
Education, and will remain in the
Eealed envelope until Friday morning,
May 6, when they will be opened and

this examination. The Old Testa
ment examination will be given in the
morning and the New Testament in

This week brought to light a new
form of awards received by high
school students. Miss Pearson pre
sented several awards to her typing
students, preceded by a short talk, in
which she set forth the idea of there
being awards and letters given to the
athletes, but that they were not the
only ones deserving this honorable
mention. Her typing class took the
April speed tests that are sent out by
the different typewriter companies.
If the students make high enough
rate of words a minute, they receive
awards from the various companies.
The Underwood Typewriter com
pany awarded to Orrin Bisbee, a good
looking gold pin, with the inscription
Expert Typist engraved on it. Or
rin s record on the Underwood was
62 net words a minute. Besides his
gold pin. Orrin received his typing
certificate. This is Orrin's second
year of typing.
The Remington company sent typ
ing certihcates to Marvin tiammell
and Margaret Smith, first year typists,
for making above 30 words a minute
on the Remington machine.
The L. C. Smith company issued
four certificates and one bronze med-
1. The certificates were won by
Ethel Hughes, Joy Erwin, Kenneth
Oviatt and Margaret Bowker. Mar
garet also won the bronze medal for
typing over 40 words a minute. These
tests were written on the L. C. Smith
All these awards and degrees of
honor were conferred upon the re
spective students before the assem
bly Friday afternoon by Miss Pear
son. Due to it being an "off day" when
the tests were given, in which the
r,bove students won the awards, Mary
Ritchie, Marjorie Clark, Rosella
Doherty, John Conder and others did
not make their usual good showing,
but they are endeavoring to be eligi
ble to certificates and medals before
school is out.
Within the last two weeks, the
typing class has shown a marked im
provement. Orrin Bisbee, second year
student, made 77 words a minute.
Marjorie Clark, first year, made 66
words, and John Conder, also first
year, made 63 net words a minute,
Junior Class News.
What makes the junior class act
so mysteriously lately? They have
been having frequent class meetings,
and if one keeps his ears open, he
can hear a hushed whisper to the ef
fect "Gee, I hope it doesn't rain
Wednesday." Or maybe something
like this, after an assignment in Eng
lish, has been made, "That's all right
for me, it won't bother me any next
It makes one so inquisitive that it
is all one can do to keep from asking,
outright, what will happen Wednes
day. Why has the president of the
class been passing around a certain
paper and having all the juniors sign
it? It Is almost an abomination to
have these juniors act this way. We
are about to wonder if they are in
their right minds.
But then, we remember when we
were juniors and the queer things we
pulled off, so let the juniors have
their fun in their way, for next year
the fun age will be past and a "real"
problem will face them, we can assure
Mr. Burgess reports that a portion
of the high school annual, The He
hisch, will be off the press and ready
for distribution this week end. The
sales manager is planning a booth at
the Hi Jinks Saturday evening, and
the annuals will be on sale there.
A seeming quietness prevailed in
the high school last week end. Upon
inquiry after the cause of such soli
tude it was found that Mr. Burgess
had departed for the Valley, in quest
of teachers, which are needed in the
school for the coming year. Mr. Bur
gess visited Eugene, Monmouth, Cor
vallis and Salem, and contemplates, in
he near future, a trip to Whitman
College at Walla Walla. Monday
morning found the school as full of
"buzzing" as ever.
Mr. Jenkins, the architect for the
new school building to be erected this
summer and completed by school time
in the fall, was in Heppner Monday
and met with the school board. Mr.
Burgess gives us the information that
the work is progressing nicely and
that the specifications will be out
for bid in a few days.
Mr. Burgess and Mr. Johnson have
just completed a change in the record
ystem of the pupils of Heppner high.
This new system consists of a loose-
leaf record book instead of tho old
card system. This change has only
been made for the present attendance
in the high school, those of past years
remaining in the card file. This rec
crd system will be much more com
plete than heretofore, and the data
will be much more easily obtained.
Heppnerian Ice Cream Sale.
The Heppnerians successfully in
troduced a new money-making scheme
last Friday when they sold ice cream
cones to the grade and high school
students. The demand was so great
that another frezer had to be ordered.
The committee selling ice cream
was composed of Audrey Beynier, Mae
Doherty and Kenneth Uviatt. A
freezer was taken out to the Rodeo
grounds and the sum of seven dol
lars and seventy-five cents was receiv-
by the committee. The entire pro
ceeds, including I. 0. U.s amounted to
nearly eighteen dollars. Although
half of this went to pay expenses, the
students feel that, their efforts were
Freshman Return Party.
Last Friday the Freshmen gave
their. return party which was well at
tended with students dressed in out
landish costumes. Such strenuous
games as "flying dutchman" were
played until some of the more deli
cate guests were f need to retire from
active participation. Gerald Slocum
won the prize of two lucious weenie)
in an attractive box. Mr. Slocum wore
the charming ladies' outfit that he
wore in the Junior Dress-Up Day.
A costume deserving mention was Joe
Swindig's girlish ensemble. Refresh
ments of punch and wafers were serv
ed and after a few more games the
party was over.
Roderick Thomson had the misfor
tune to receive a broken finger while
playing baseball last Monday. How
ever he played the game for his
