A prize, which as yet has not been
chosen, is to be given to the boy or
girl who by the end of the semester
has the most inches of newspaper ma
terial to his credit. Every student in
high school is eligible. Each con
testant will write news items for the
Heppnerian and when it comes out in
print he will clip it from the news
paper and save it. At the end of the
semester the total inches will be
measured for each person and tile
prize awarded. This is being done
to cultivate a greater interest among
the students of high school in jour
nalism. BOYS' SPORTS.

HONOR ROLL. '
The high school honor roll is di
ded into two divisions, relative to
the grades received.
The first honor roll requirement is
to have all grades equal A. There are
none on the roll this six weeks, but
it is hoped that some will, have raised
to that honor by the second six weeks.
The second honor roll is divided
into four divisions, the first of which
requires three As and a B. Mary
Beamer and Fletcher Walker have
grades equal to this requirement. The
second division of the second honor
roll calls for 2 As and 2 Bs. Those
who have earned this honor are Kath
frine Bisbee, Gordon Bucknum, Eve
lyn Swindig and Mary White. The
third division is to have an A and
three Bs, and Margaret Notson met
this .requirement. Daisy Albee and
Nolan Turner are in the fourth di
vision of the second honor roll with
grades equalling 4 Bs.
Domestic Science Class News.
Weight charts are being kept by the
domestic science class, to see if the
students who are underweight will
gain and those overweight will lose
and thus bring their weights to nor
mal by the end of the term. Their
weight is recorded every week. The
system of age and height is used
to determine the normal weight.

English VII Class News.
The senior English class has been
delving into old English literature
since school began. Chaucer's Canter
bury Tales, coming first, being writ
ten in Old English, proved to be very
difficult and irksome to read.
A modern prologue of ten character
sketches was then assigned to each
member of the class by Mrs. Smith.
Two of these were due every day to
be read to the class and as a final
touch had to be bound in covers and
each character profusely illustrated
so that an A or B grade might be
available. The Perkins family and
other comic strip characters served
as illustrations for many who could
not feel inspired to sketch them.
Photographs from magazines and
newspapers were also among the portraits.
The pilgrims in the Tales went to
Canterbury for religious reasons and
the modern prologues told of pilgrims
going to various Meccas such as Hoi
lywood, Europe, China, and other
fountains of youth. Many of the
characters were sketches of members
of the class and townspeople, besides
a number of well-known sheep herd
though it is thought that the boys'
glee club will sing and other musical
events take place. The present esti
mation is that the opening date will
be near November 15.
Gymnastics and games will compose
the physical drill when the gym is
opened. Four or five days a week
definite drill will be assigned to the
pupils, who will be divided into the
following groups: primary, interme
diate, advanced and high school, boys

Orrin Bisbee is now busy figuring

to wear one of the pins of the Torch
Honor society. As soon as this work
is completed the pins will be ordered
and given to those entitled to wear

body are members of this society but
only those with a certain number of
points are allowed to wear a pin.
Miss Pearson, teacher in the local

on the Declaration of Independence.
These essays will try to prove or dis
prove the facts which make up the
momentous document. The class went
over the clauses Friday and found
many of them to be void.
Later, an essay is to be prepared
on "The Causes of the American
Revolution." The question has been
brought to the attention of the class
that our present histories may have
been overly exaggerated about the
oppression England gave her colonies.
The Oregon historical society, with
headquarters at Portland, has asked
all the schools of the state to partici
pate in a contest sponsored by that
society. The rules of the contest
specify that an essay should be writ
ten on "The Provisional Government
in Oregon." Mrs. Smith intends to
ers and cowboys.
