The speech given by Mr. Barratt
last Monday brings to mind the sig
nificance of the Norton Winnard
Cup. This cup was given to the
hleh school by the class of 1918 who
did this in memory of the sterling
qualities of their classmate, Norton

been given to the best all around
Junior; but in the last few years
the best senior has had his name
engraved upon the cup.
The qualifications for this cup
are: good grades, good personality,
narticiDation in some sport, al-
thoueht this isn't necessary, and a
good social standing among class
mates. A natural scnoiar win nave
no better chance for this honor
than has the person who must study
at home because we all admire most
a person who gets high grades be
cause he works for them.
The prestige of being a student
whose name is engraved upon the
cup is worth striving for; and not
only is the name of this cup known
in Heppner but In the whole state
Therefore, a Norton wmnara
Cup student has a better chance In
after life because he is marked for
his high merits; and this is another
thing for which every student

days. All that had been true of
him in HeDDner high school was
true in his higher education days
He never sought glory and some
times even dodged it. When he
graduated from Harvard he was
recommended for a position wnn
one of the largest hospitals in the
United States in New York, and he
had just entered upon what gave
promise of being a great career
when it was cut short by his un
In his talk Mr. Barratt said ne
honed all the students would re
member this cup and work for it
throughout their high school course
so that there would be a real con
test as to the one who would receive
it in his senior year. The candi
date selected must possess the qua!
ities of leadership, scholarship, and
personality as exemplified by the

be awarded each team that wins
one of these games and five points

three points for entrance. Third,
there are the all school sports con
