county, while conducting his busi
ness of cattle and Bheep raising.

Parents are strange people. They
do everything in their power to
make their children happy and to
give them everything they want.
Yet, they seem to expect nothing
How many of us try to give some
thing to our parents in return for
all they have given us? One won
ders how many can honestly say
they have partially repaid their
Repayment can be done In many
ways, but one of the most effective
ways is by deeds. "Little deeds of
kindness, little deeds of love, go to
make an Eden, like to that above."
Children can do these little deeds of
love and kindness either knowing
ly or unknowingly. Nevertheless,
they touch the hearts of the par
ents. Down deep inside of them,
our parents feel gratitude and con
tentment. Gratitude that their
children have the consideration to
try to do something to repay them.
Contentment that they have given
life to a child who can do these
deeds, not only for themselves, but
for other people, too. These are the
things which contribute greatly to
making our parents' Eden.
Money and expensive gifts help
repay them, but not as effectively
as deeds. Little remembrances,
such as cards on Mother's and Fa
ther's Day, touch the heart more
than an expensive present. The gift
makes the father or mother think
that the presentation is more of a
formality than a remembrance.
Our parents get too many formal
ities when they associate with the
outside world. While at home, they

like to live a simple life and be re
garded by their children as simple
people. Formalities do not fit Into
the average American home.
Thus it may be seen that repay
ing our parents for all they have
given us is a simple task if we set
about it In the right way. These
little deeds are simple and mean bo
much to our parents.
When a person looks over the
desks in our school, he is made to
wonder what has become of the
persons who so unwisely left their
autographs awkwardly carved on
After stopping to consider the
person whose name and initials we
find, we discover that they for the
most part belonged to persons who
were not attractive in any way.
They were little noticed by anyone
because they lacked ability and tal
ent; so they sought notoriety by
writing and carving their names on
furniture. You may find the own
ers of the autographs today, you
will see that many of them are still
unnoticed and unsuccessful.
For a time this carving was
stopped, but now we notice that
students are again marking the
desks. A few names and diagrams
referring to love have been ob
served. If we want people to see
our names, let's put thm on the bul
letin board; if we are in love let's
just tell the one we love and no one
Above all don't show your igno
rance by carving on desks; keep
the property of our school in first

students who have earned a grade

Attend Debate Tournament
Inexperienced but determined,
Heppner high school's debate squad,
consisting of the affirmative team,
Ralph Currin and Frances Rugg;
and the negative team, Billy Thorn
son and Francis Nickerson, jour
neyed to Pendleton last Saturday
and came within an ace of being
high school district debate cham
pions. Five teams took part in the
tournament Hermiston, Heppner,
Pendleton,' Mac-Hi, and Umatilla.
In the first round of debates,
Heppner's affirmative team drew
Mac-Hi and the negative team drew
Umatilla. Heppner and Mac-Hi
were victorious by a score of 2 to
1. In the second round both of
Heppner's teams drew Hermiston's
teams. However, the local teams
were not experienced enough to win
from Hermiston s speakers. Both
Heppner teams lost this round with
the score being: affirmative, Her
miston 3, Heppner 0; negative, Her
miston 2, Heppner 1. This won the
debate for Hermiston. The Hepp
ner squad was coached by Mr. Pe-
In order to learn some new pieces
for the basketball tournament, the
"pep" band practiced Monday eve
ning. On Main street Thursday after
noon the band led a parade which
was made up of Elks' initiation
candidates. After the parade, the
band gave a short concert in front
of the First National bank.
The high school students were
guests at the grade school program
held in honor of George Washing
ton's birthday Thursday afternoon.
The program consisted of group
singing, songs by the different
grades, a playlet, and a dance.
Sixty poems have been turned in
to the poetry corner of the English
VI class. The poems are written by
the students and are read and crit
icized in class. Most of them have
been of the descriptive type.

By a score of 13-10 the Irish bas
ketball team of Heppner was de
