Although Heppner was defeated
in the finals of the basketball tour
nament last Saturday night, she
succeeded in placing one player,
Roy Gentry, on the tourney's all
star team. This team was made
up of the following players: for
wards: Teats, Condon, and Ervin,
Umatilla; center, Ransler, Board
man; guards, Allen, Condon, and
The members of the student body
are proud of Roy and we all con
For five years he has done his
best to bring glory and fame to
Heppner high school in sports and
sportsmanship. Four years, start
ing in the eighth grade, he played
quarterback on our football team.
During his four years of high school
he has been an outstanding player
on our basketball team.
His speed, endurance, and fight
have never failed us; while his
quick understanding and knowledge
of the game, together with his un
daunted leadership, were constant
ly an inspiration to his team mates.
He was an outstanding player in
the recent basketball tournament
and was duly honored by being
given a position on the all-star team.
We hope that Roy will face life
with the same undaunted courage
and fight with which he has faced
his opponents on the gridiron and
basketball court, and we all wish
the best of success to our friend,
schoolmate, and "fellow athlete, Roy
It is regretted that in our high
school we have a few samples of a
particularly bad type of cut-up.
Naturally, anybody of this type is
detrimental to the school, but there
is one type that is worse than any
other. This is the fellow who per
sistently pulls sneaky, small of
fenses with which he believes he
is getting1 away. This gradually
arouses the teacher's ire and finally
the student is dismissed from class.
Then comes the disgraceful part.
Instead of taking his just punish
ment, the student tells everyone in
earshot how he has been mistreated
and what he intends to do to the
teacher if he ever gets a chance.
In other words he Isn't man enough
to pay the price of his foolishness.
He is the type that tries to enjoy
himself at the expense of others
without paying for his fun. The boy
who does this sort of thing is a
sneak of the worst kind. He knows
he has punishment coming, but he
isn't courageous enough to take it
A boy of this type is usually little
liked, either by the teachers or by
his own schoolmates. All the world
hates a sneak and this is one of the
most cowardly things a person can
Congratulations for the boy who,
when he cuts-up, takes his dues
Petite Jessie French, junior nom

the tournament consolation title to
Stanfleld at the gymnasium last
Saturday night by a score of 17-16.
Heppner couldn't hit 'the basket
though they were able to bring the
ball down into shooting territory
with amazing regularity. The score
at half-time stood 11-10 in Stan
field's favor. During the second
period the score was tied 14 to 14
and 16 to 16. Stanfleld made a free
throw during the last few seconds
of the game, winning 17-16.
Betty Doherty has been chosen
by the Benzine Ring as the candi
date to fill the vacancy left by the
resignation of Phyllis Pollock.
The seniors ordered their an
nouncements this week.
Tuesday was senior dress-up day

Well Worn Advice '
Well, well, and well, here I am,
ladies and gentlemen and others.
Now to resume my unsurpassed
quantity of knowledge that may
help some friend or foe In the past.
Speaking of help, it is a good idea
to help yourself rather than some
one else, as the other person may
die and then he would be unable to
help you. Such things have happen
ed and therefore it is readily agreed
that the amount of time involved
had been wasted. Since the topic
of waste has been brought up, don't
you think that the waistline of to
day (or is it streamline) is stun
ning? I know a person who was
so stunned once that he died. But
he probably would have lived if the
brick that hit him had been delayed
a few seconds. You know, folks,
seconds are funny people. They
acclaim the knowledge of musi
cians, but in reality they just play
chords. The other day I purchased

Students in Learning
Eugene That simple little trick
in reading, such as turning the head
slightly to the left, or moving the
page a few Inches to the right, may
mean the difference for backward
students between gaining an eduT
cation or remaining "dumb" has
been discovered at the University
of Oregon by L. K. Shumaker, su
pervisor of the English bureau, and
Dr. H. R. Crossland, professor of
The two educators found that In
a group of 24 students segregated
because of study difficulties 18 of
them were "left-eyed," yet were
right-handed, rather than the nor
mal right-handed, right-eyed or
left-handed, left-eyed. In practic
ally every case tests disclosed pre
sence of a cerebral Interference
which made reading and perception
of the printed page difficult, due
to the fact that the left eye dom
inated in vision.
By having the student turn his
head slightly, or if he preferred,
moving the book a few inches to
the right, the right eye was forced
to take over its share of the work.
This resulted In an almost Instant
improvement In learning.
