Prof. L. J. Maaske, principal of
Irrigon school. ws a visitor in Hepp
ner during institute. He is a recent
arrival from Nebraska, and beside.
being a school man is biro an ac
complished musician and band leader.
He expects to work up considerable
interest in band work at Irrigon and
contemplates a visit to Heppner later
when he hopes that arrangements
may be perfected whereby a similar

must be created out of new material.
