The Pilgrim Fathers had set aside Thanksgiving as a time for expressing gratitude for the first season's crops. But when it was all over and they got down to brass tacks, they had the impression that there was not so very much to be thankful for after all. The Indians were reds, and our fore fathers were anxious to keep labor troubles back until Samuel Gompers jhould be born; while the maize crops were amazing, the Swiss chard was a failure and they raised more karats than gold. The frost was on the pumpkin; the ague and nostalgia appeared in their midst; and they did not have half enough ancestors with them they really should have ancestors; why, there were not suf ficient ancestors on the May Tag for half the Camminettis and Floradoras, gllllllllillllllIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIllllllllll Ask Your Grocer for the 1 Oregon Bakery's I NEW SUPERIOR LOAF I "Butternut" or "Round-Up" I Our home-made pastries are de- livered in Heppner fresh daily --iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiini nir; This Car 4 tlBB4 Wht9 vMotef vjUdUlor , Rtir AxW vTranHnUaa y Ignition vBsltery vTlrW . vTop jm&m- 1 Building Quality into Used Cars Unusual facilities for re- ics are thoroughly corn conditioning automobiles petent and, working make possible the high with speml took, they value found in our de- accomplish a given task pendable used cars. in the minimum time. llV onw -vn imA In the first place, we can genuine parts for replace- tell exactly what needs to ment purposes, be done to a car without As a result, our recondi- long and expensive ex- tioned cars simply can- perimenting.Our median- not be matched for value.

So Thanksgiving went into the dis card for quite a while, but it was not long before they wanted to be thank ful for something. "What shall It be?" asked Goodness Knows Jones. Search as they might there was noth ing they could think of, until Sakes Alive Brown suggested that they might be thankful that Columbus didn't discover any more continents. S. M.,. A Battle of the Century. One of the most bloody as well as enthralling battles of the present century took place before the school building Saturday afternoon. The bloody affray was witnessed by an appreciative group of spectators, in cluding Miss Flossie Stender and Messiuers Stanley Minor and Orrin Bisbee. Ruth (Flashy) Furlong and Ellis (Toughy) Thomson were sched uled for a ten round bout. An ac count of the fight follows: Thomson led with two sharp rights, but was blocked by Furlong. Furlong retal- iated with a terrific right to the side of the head. Thomson was slightly groggy and they fell into a clinch. When they broke, Furlong fell to the canvas, but immediately recovered. She led with a left uppercut, and followed with a sharp right to the heart. This was intercepted by Toughy'i arm, but the result was disastrous, because the force of the blow shattered his wrist. The decis ion was unanimously given to Fur long, as Thomson was rendered hors de combat. It might be added, that a riotous time was had by all. Mr. Von Lubken (explaining a few Latin words) : "Now, watch the board closely, and I'll run through it again." NOTICE Lost, a fountain pen by a freshman half filled with green ink. Mr. Johnson (in the lunch room): "The doctor says that I must limit my diet to sea foods." Miss Murray: "You're in luck. The girls have just baked a sponge cake for lunch."

Residents near the high school have been greatly puzzled by the ap pearance of a huge pile of tires, boxes and "what nots" this week. These piles resemble the work of pre historic mound builders. The builders themselves were quite interesting. They were sooty com plexioned, clad in loose-fitting earthy garments, and of all shapes and sizes. Some folks thought they were de scendants of the Neanderthal race while others thought they were Pilt-downs. The World History class made an investigation only to find the mound builders were freshm"" collecting material for the annual bonfire which will be burned Thursday, November 10th. The frosh are deeply indebted to the Ferguson Chevrolet company for the use of a large truck, by which they were enabled to get the material upon the hill with the least exertion or effort. - A PROTEST. The members of the U. S. G. A. (United Society of Gab Artists) wish to know what is the matter wit1' '' freshman pennant what la causing the delay of its appearance? At the last regular meeting of the student body, this was missed to an immeasurable extent, and was com mented upon by many. We wish to register our complaint as members of the Heppner student body and sim ilar assemblies for we are not receiv ing the full extent of its display. The exact reason its delay la not being asked for, we know the freshmen to be a proverbably pro crastinating lot, but the patience of the countryside has been sorely tried in waiting for its appearance, and we wish to register our protest.
