In the light of discouraging finan
cial conditions the last year, teach
ers and pupils of the school have
carried on, bringing the year to a
successful conclusion, marked by its
having retained its place on the
list of high schools accredited by
the Northwest Association of Ac
credited High Schools, certificate of
Which was recently received. Mem
bership In the association means
that Heppner high school gradu
ates are entitled to matriculate in
any of the state institutions of high
er education in the northwest with
out further examination.
Despite the depressed conditions
which have precluded the board
signing any contracts with teachers
so far for next year, a number of
the teachers are planning to attend
summer school. The board of edu
cation is not In a position at this
time to announce plans for next
year, but are of the opinion that
maintaining of present standards
will depend largely upon how well
people respond with their tax payments.
Stockholders 100 Pet.
A 100 percent assessment of
stockholders of both the First Na
tional and Farmers & Stockgrow
ers National banks of Heppner,
now in the process of liquidation,
was anounced by J. F. Gault, re
ceiver, this week. The assessment,
amounting to $100,000 for First Na
tional and $50,000 for Farmers &
Stockgrowers stockholders, was
made by the comptroller of the cur
rency from the receiver's statement
which showed that the full assess
ment was necessary to meet part of
the deficiency in assets required to
pay depositors' claims.
The receivership being operated
Jointly for the two banks in the of
fices of the First National bank has
resulted In economies for each in
stitution, says Mr. Gault. The neces
sary overhead expense which would
have been required to handle the
liquidation of the Farmers bank
separately has been cut 75 per cent
by the combination, while bringing
a return to depositors of the First
National bank in the amount of rent
paid. The salaries under the re
ceivership are considerably less
than the total salaries paid to the
force of one of the banks during
operation. The receiver is pushing
the settlement of accounts as rapid
ly as possible in accordance with
instructions from the comptroller
and the laws governing the process

Continuing the Socratic leaeue
discussion with the question, "Look

though all were doubtful If the
principles of democracy had been
entirely carried out.
To elucidate the question, defin
itions oi various forms of govern
ment were given: democracy, gov
ernment Dy tne majority of the peo
pie; republic, government bv reD-
resentatives of the majority of the
people; oligarchy, government by a
small group of the people; plutoc

The discussions are held without
previous preparation, intended to
bring spontaneous response from
those questioned as to their indi
vidual ideas of government.
While no direct answer was o-lv-
en to the question, those responding
save some interesting ideas. One
member cited Muscle Shoals as an
example of political manipulation
wnerein tne government turned
down a lucrative offer to sell or
lease the project, and since has
none little toward its development.
Another member believed the prin
ciples of democracy should prevail,
if they do not, and that in the main
they are the controlling factor In
our government Still another
member declared that those in con
trol in the early days of our gov
ernment meant it when they put

money, but that today the people
have strayed far afield. The motto
should now be, he said, "We Trust

Last Examinations Slated
For Licenses at Low Rate
Morrow county motorists will
have their last opportunity next
Wednesday to take the drivers' ex
amination before June 9 when the
rate will be increased from 60 cents
to a dollar. Martin Redding, ex
aminer of operators and chauffeurs,
will be in Heppner at the court
house between the hours of 1 and

31, to give the examination, accord
ing to word from the office of Hal
E. Hoss, secretary of state, who
urges all desiring to take the exam
ination to get in touch with Mr.
Redding during these hours.
Many Morrow county motorists
have availed themselves of the op
portunity to obtain licenses at the
low rate on recent visits of the ex
aminer. All who have not had li
censes renewed are required to ob
tain new licenses before September
1, and by taking the examination
before June 9 fifty cents may be

FISH ON WAY.
Charles H. Latourell received tel
ephone notification this morning
that a tank truck load of fish for

is on its way today from the Oak
Springs state hatchery. Local

other season have caused to lie
dormant more seeds which balmier
