Beautiful growing weather has pre
vailed for weeks in the south end of

Christmas Gift Idea
Offered by Mrs. Sager
With the approach of another
Christmas season, homemakers
once more take up the search for
attractive, useful and economical
gifts, preferably something that can
be made at home. Mrs. Azalea Sa
ger, extension specialist in cloth
ing and textiles at O. S. C, sug
gests an attractive scarf for each
member of the family as one partial
solution of the problem. A knitted
scarf and beret to match will please
the little tot the grade school or
high school girl, while the older
members of the family will often
welcome a gay silk scarf, Mrs. Sa
ger says. Scarfs, by the way, are
benig worn short, not more than a
yard long, and tied up closely about
Two strips of plain silk material
one-third yard wide and a yard
long can be combined to make two
good looking scarfs, Mrs. Sager
says. To make them, take two
strips of cloth of different but har
monious colors. Mark the center
of each strip; that is, 18 inches from
either side. Then mark the center
of this. Connect this point to a
point on the opposite side at the
center 18 inch mark and at the
outer edge. This makes a triangle
18 Inches at base and 15 Inches on
either side. Each strip will cut
three triangles and two small end
triangles measuring 12 x 9 x 15.
Intermingle the colors and sew the
triangles together again so that
a flat strip remains; the two small
end triangles and central triangle
og one color, the Intermediate tri
angles of the second color. Sew the
two sides together. Then press it
so that the side seam is In the cen
ter of the scarf instead of at one
side. Sew up one end. Turn the
scarf inside out and blind stitch the

What is school attitude? Is It the
conduct of the Individual student,
or is It the conduct of the whole
group In a student body?
Student attitude is neither of
these, but It is probably the strong
est single factor in deciding how
much a student will get out of
school. Attitude itself is the stu
dent's Idea of his work. If the stu
dent is interested in his work and
his acivltles, if he takes each as
signment of school work cheerfully,
and if he can go to school without
wishing he were some place else,
and without violating too many de
portmental regulations, then he has
a good attitude. From this it should
be evident that attitude is the stu
dent's viewpoint on school. In some
schools, as a result of careful work
by the teachers, nearly the whole
student body has a good attitude;
and in others, the students don't
have a good attitude.
This attitude cannot be built by
the teachers alone; the student
must reaMze the importance of good
attitude himself and then let the
faculty give him opportunities to do
things that will help keep up a good
attitude In him.
Attitude is usually aided by the
use of activities such as clubs and
teams and student organizations for
self-government When students
enter wholeheartedly into these va
rious activities, they become inter
ested In their work in school be
cause they are having a good time
while going to school. The principle
is much the same as feeding a small
child candy to make him do some
thing. The attitude in Heppner high
school has shown a great improve
ment In this last year as is evi
denced by the higher grade stand
ings and the very noticeable de
crease in the number of demerits
given out this year.
Therefore, if we enter actively in
to our school work and play without
"raising too much Cain," we will
find that everything will come much
easier and that our teachers will
think much more of our possibil
ities. Frosh Program

in business of 160 per cent was
made by 89 companies during the
first nine months of 1933, according
to Standard Statistics, Dr. Comish

that business has improved as much
as 25 per cent since last March, in

county farms recently by County
Agent W. F. Cyrus and A. L. King,
extension specialist in soils from
Oregon State college. The size of
the tile ranged from eight to four
inches, depending, Mr. Cyrus says,
on the area of land to be drained
and the amount of fall or grade. It
is particularly important, he says,
to lay the tile at the right depth to
