Heppner Grade School Observes
Child Health Program With
From the tiniest tot of the first
grade to the biggest boy of the
eighth, Heppner grade school pupils
observed with the utmost interest.
Child Health day, Friday. Health
was the keynote in every subject
and project of the day. Even the
subject of arithmetic, not generally
considered as having any connec
tion with health, was given a part
in showing the benefits of good
It was planned to give framed
pictures to the three grades giving
the best programs and projects, but
carrying out of the work was so
uniformly excellent that it was de
cided to give each of the competing
rooms a picture.
The reading class of the first
grade had as its lesson for the day
topics on health. On the black
boards the "ABC's" of health could
be seen. The children had cut-out
pictures relating to health from
magazines, mounted them and had
written on the mounts the healthful
significance of the pictures. Even
the sand table was brought into
play to illustrate principles of
health, showing that "The Three
Bears" lived up to health rules.
Similar Work Displayed.
The class work of the second and
higher grades was along similar
lines. Parents, after hearing the
first grade program, progressed to
the second grade. The girls of the
grade entertained with a doll's
health song. The class, acting in
the roles of Mother Goose charac
ters, told of the many things lead
ing to good health.
The earlier part of the afternoon
was devoted to programs and health
projects, while later in the day the
children took part in the physical
side of health, playing games and
staging folk dances.
An obstacle relay race with the
third and fourth grades on oppos
ing teams, provided plenty of thrills
for parents and children on the
sidelines. Midway on the course
two barrels were placed and .a hor
izontal bar at the end. On the
going trip the boys hurdled the bar
rels, reaching the bar they made
a turn on it, going over and under.
The boys crawled through the bar-
rels while racing back to the place
of beginning, which when reached,
started the next boy on his way in
the race. The event was won by
the fourth grade.
Children of the first and second
grades entertained with folk and
square dances in the high school
auditorium under the direction of
Mrs. Adelyn O'Shea.
The girls from the fifth and
eighth grades vied against the sixth
and seventh grades in playground
baseball, with the victory going to
the fifth-eighth team by a score of
The boys of the upper grades also
staged a playground baseball game,
the fifth-eighth grade team wrest
ing a victory from the sixth-seventh
grade aggregation in a closely con
tested fray, 10-8.
The home economics department
of the high school displayed gar
ments made in sewing and the class
in domestic science was seen carry
ing out various projects. Punch
and cookies of the students' own
making were served the visitors.
Smith Team Victorious
In Crow-Magpie Battle
The army headed by Charles W.
Smith in the drive against crows,
magpies and other pest birds had
defeated C. L. Sweek's team 1420 to
918, when a count of heads and eggs
was made following the close of the
contest at 9 o'clock Sunday night
The contest had opened on the
morning of the previous Sunday,
thus being waged over a period of
eight days. The fray was a spirited
one. with the outcome in doubt un
til the final count It was entered
with a spirit of good fellowship, and
was much enjoyed despite the fact
that many were stiff and sore after
being out on the hunt, for the rea
son of having used little-used mus
cles in climbing to destroy nests
and eggs. Much of the soreness
was charged to bruises and scrat
ches received while climbing trees
and thorn bushes.
The Smith team will be entertain
ed at a dinner by the losing team
sometime in the near future. It is
expected to have a speaker from
the state game commission to give
a talk at that time.
"HIGHWAYS OF THE HEART."
The topic above will be discussed
at lone on Sunday evening when
the local Church of Christ goes a
journeying to that place. The hour
of service there will be 8 o'clock.
Remember the contest and be on
time for Sunday school. Stay for

another 10 points for there will be

SET BY TRACTOR
Oregon State College Operates
Machine Continuously for
30 Days to Get Data.
The longest continuous non-stop
tractor run in history has been end

connected with modern power farm

tention as it broke all previous
world's records. When the engine
was finally stopped it was run on
the campus at Corvallis where an
ox team and covered wagon brought

between the old and the new.
Senator Charles L. McNary called
President W. J. Kerr of the col

demonstration and the president in
turn passed the word to Governor

making close to 40 million revolu

run the tractor was torn down and
engineers began checking on every
part, especially the wear on the
