A holiday is a day for having a
"good time." But how many of us
who hail a holiday so joyously ever
stop to think of the real significance
of the events which holidays com
memorate? Armistice day, November elev
enth, is a day set apart in memory
of a great event in our nation's his
tory. Peace was established the
nation was saved but at the cost
of thousands of lives of our coun
try's bravest men.
We should all come to realize
more what the signing of the arm
istice which ended the war means
to the world.
Heppner Defeats lone 26-7
Heppner, through a brilliant
passing attack, defeated lone 26-7
at the Rodeo grounds last Friday
In the first half. Engelman, lone
halfback, went around end to the
two yard line. lone punched the
ball across on the next two downs
and' Engelman converted for the
point. Heppner received and after
several line plays Gentry stepped
back and threw a nice pass to Mor
gan who crossed the goal line stand
ing up. Thomson went around the
left side of the line for the extra
point. Heppner's second score
came a few minutes later. Gentry
again passed, this time to Thomson
who crossed into the end zone after
a long run through a broken field.
Heppner lost the extra point on an
Two more passes, which resulted
in touchdowns, were completed in
the third quarter. The first was
to Morgan who placed the ball on
the one foot line and two plays
made the touchdown and extra
point. The second was to Thom

was in its own territory.
A strong wind was blowing which
greatly slowed the game.

Pep Rally Held
A pep rally was held in the as
sembly last Thursday afternoon at
one o'clock. The program began
with a number by the pep band.
The students were honored by hav
ing with them three business men
of Heppner, who are Heppner high
school graduates. Questions were
asked the alumni much to their
embarrassment, and also the em
barrassment of the present football
team. The first victim was P. W.
Mahoney, who graduated with the
class of '23, questioned by Bill
Q. Mr. Mahoney, how does the
high school spirit of today com
pare with the period when you were
A. I think the school spirit is just
about the same now as it was then.
Q. How do you think the Indi
vidual players and teams of today
rate with those of your era?
A. Our men averaged fifteen
pounds heavier to the man than
the team of today.
Q. What about the 40-0 trimming
that Condon gave you?
A. The roads were rough In those
days and a carload of our players
failed to arrive, but we never per
mitted a team like Pilot Rock to
.Q. Were the attendance and sup
port at games larger than the at
tendance at games .this year?
A. No, the town support is better
now than it was then.
Q. What do you think will be the
outcome of the game with lone to
morrow? A. If the boys fight hard, we
should be victorious.
Next on the spot was Leonard
Schwarz, questioned by Roy Gen
try. Q. Who was your biggest rival In
your last year of football?
Q. Is there anything in particular
that you remember about that
A, Only one thing, the large
score that they piled up against us.
Q. How does this year's team
compare with the team of that day?
A. They are better coached now
than they were then.
Q. How has football changed as
to roughness and plays?
A. Football is not as rough now
because of the barring of the flying
block and flying tackle; the plays
are much more scientific today.
Next, Mr. Barratt, who graduat
ed with the class of '18, was ques
tioned by Curtis Thomson.
Q. Mr. Barratt, do you like the
game better as It is played today
than as It was played in your high
Q. There are quite a number of
seniors on our team, and we won

considerable at the time of your
A. About 40 per cent of the team
Q. Were there a lot of husky fel
lows in your class that year?
Curtis: I didn't think so.
Curtis: Well, how was it that the
freshmen had you scared to come
on the playground?
A. I don't remember that,
Curtis: Well, I heard that when
the seniors tried to make the fresh
men address them as Sirs, and Mis
ters, the freshmen made threats of
cold showers and paint and thus
kept you away from the play
ground. A. You must have been talking
to Dad Driscoll!
Q. Mr. Barratt, do you think an
athlete in training should keep
Q. If so, how was it that you kept
an all night watch on the top of
the old schoolhouse roof with a
bucket of tar in your hand in order
to keep the freshmen from paint
ing the roof?
A. (blushingly) I hold Dad Dris
coll responsible for most of these
questions; but that was school spir
it in the good old days of '18.
The fifth- sixth, seventh and
eighth grades were guests of the
high school. The meeting was
closed by a number from the band.
The sophomore English class has
started a two weeks' contract on
short stories of the following auth
ors: Hawthorne, Poe, Doyle, Barrie,
Kipling, O. Henry, Mark Twain,
Bret Harte, and a few modern
authors. The number of stories
read by each student determines
his grade. Fifteen stories is the
minimum and thirty is the maxi
mum. Tap, tap, tap, the keys are click
ing as the soldiers are steadily
marching on the Armistice Day
posters which are being made by
the first year typing classes as their
assignment for this week. Last
week, Miss Coppock taught the
classes how to make soldiers and
generals, also stare, with the dif
ferent characters of the typewrit
er. In making these posters and
booklets the students are required
to use their own initiative.
Notebooks were made by the Do
mestic Science and Art classes at
the beginning of the year to keep
their required work in and to work
up the projects as they liked. The
Domestic Science notebooks are
covered with green and white
checked oilcloth so they could be
kept clean. The clothing books are
covered with cloth and blanket
stitched around the edges. The
front was decorated with original
designs. Esther Adams chose blue
material and pink decoration with
the initial "E." Louise Moyer had
pink for a background with a sun
bonnet baby of blue print worked
on the cover, and Hazel Beymer
had a blue background on which
she outlined in embroidery thread
a cat and dog design which she
then tinted. There were many
other attractive designs which have
not been mentioned.
The "A" section of the freshman
English class is writing a short
story. Each student is writing a
part of the story.
A Roman newspaper Is to be pub
lished in the next two weeks by
Miss Palmiter's World History class.

est Clark, and Kathryn Healy.
The newspaper will deal with
sports, news, etc.. Just as does a
modern newspaper. The names of

The Cougars and Yanks played
to a tie in a game of touch-football
during the gym period last Thurs
day. The game lasted for about
thirty minutes. The Cougars kept
the ball in the Yanks' territory most
of the time. They made their larg

made their gains by skirting the
ends. The referee for this game
was Gerald Cason.

Value of Various Milk
Forms for Poultry Told
Which is best for poultry dried
skim milk or creamery buttermilk?
In answering this question F. E.
Fox, associate professor in poultry
husbandry at Oregon State college,
says skim milk and buttermilk have
practically the same feeding value,
and whether It is in dry or liquid
form is largely a matter of choice
In comparing prices, however.
Fox says that buttermilk at 1 1-2
cents a gallon will give a cost for
"total solids" of about 2 cents per
pound, while dry skim milk at 4
cents a pound will mean a cost for
total solids of about 4 1-2 to 5 cents
a pound. He therefore believes
it is largely a matter of which can
be obtained the more cheaply at
any given place labor and conve
Junction City Seven acres of
wilt resistant sweet clover on the
Glen Strome farm here has just
yielded 4200 pounds of seed, the
crop being so heavy that harvesting
was difficult A neighbor, C. A.
Schooling, harvested 1250 pounds
from 1 1-4 acres. This strain of
sweet clover is the increase from a
single stalk developed at the exper
iment station, and is the only strain
yet found that can be grown suc
cessfully In western Oregon. It
provides green pasture through the
dry late summer period.

LIN THE HEPPNER
Three biographies recently ac
quired in the Heppner library are:
"Holy Prayers in a Horses' Ear"
by Kathleen Tamagawa; "Queen
Victoria," by Lytton Strachey, and
"Grandmother Brown's Hundred
Years," by Harriet Connor Brown.
"Holy Prayers in a Horse's Ear"
Is an autobiography written by a
girl whose father was a Japanese
and whose mother was an Ameri
can of Irish descent Her exper
iences in Japan where she was con
sidered an alien by the Japanese,
and in America where she now re
Bides and is considered an alien by
the Americans, is extmerely inter
esting. "Queen Victoria" is considered a
masterpiece by critics, and the
author, Lytton Strachey, was pro
claimed the most eminent biog
rapher of our time for his vivid
portrayal of one of the most famous
women in history.
"Grandmother Brown's Hundred
Years" is the life-story of an old
lady who had lived more than a
hundred years, as related by her
daughter-in-law, Harriet Connor
Brown. The panorama of her life,
her early days in Ohio, then later
on an Iowa farm is beautifully por
trayed. This book received the Atlantic
Monthly prize for the best biogra
phy of 1930.
Explosion of Gasoline
Brings Safety Hint
Most all motorists have exper
ienced the unpleasantness of being
"out of gas" and once having gone
through the hardships attached to
the adventure, are thereafter more
careful in observing the contents
of their gasoline tanks.
But that there is a great new
danger in measuring one's gasoline
is brought out by Secretary of
State Hal Hoss who has Just re
ceived a newspaper clipping relat
ing the death of a motorist and the
burning of his automobile although
the unfortunate driver did not light
a match dur'ng his examination of
the tank. This person used an iron
rod and In scraping it against the
side of the gasoline tank, a spark
was created and an explosion re
sulted. Moral: Do not use tools or metal
articles to measure gasoline.
