Why is it that some students do
not care to participate in any of the
school activities such as plays, clubs,
games, etc.? Is it because they are
afraid they cannot do the work suc
cessfully; or is it because they dis
like the work connected with these
activities; or is it because of tim
idity? Some students are athletically in
clined; some can talk before an
audience; some care for science;
no matter, there are enough school
activities so that all of the students
can participate in some one of them.
It seems that every student should
have enough school ambition or en
thusiasm to do this even if he knows
he will not be a huge success.
One can never make a name for
himself in life by sitting around and
saying, "I can't," "I'm afraid," or,
"I don't feel like it."
What is more persistent than a
Apparently, a certain fly's chief
object in life is to poise on my nose
during a speed test in typewriting.
When every finger is busy and ev
ery second is precious, there he
will sit and rub his front legs to
gether or turn about this way and
that to view the world. I may blow
myself blue in the face; no amount
of blowing will dislodge him. It is
only with a slap of the hand, and
a wanton waste of time, that he is
persuaded to leave. He persistent
ly returns again and again, but I
shake my head so rapidly that he is
unable to find his landing place.
Even then, he doesn't give up but
flies over to entertain Joe Green
a while. Being repulsed from that
quarter he then makes a landing
on Bill Schwarz's ear. And so it
goes, but he can never be daunted.
From day to day he returns to his
malpractices. When some pass
much more accurate than any of
mine ends has career, I am sure I

Student Council Meets
Heppner high school's student
council met last Tuesday at nine
o'clock in the reference room to de
cide on the pins for the debate club
and to arrange assembly programs
for the remainder of the semester.
The debate pins as provided for
in the constitution are gold, 3-4 inch
in height and 1-2 inch in width. The
student has to participate in one
inter-school debate before earning
pin. Each year that he partici
pates after earning the pin, he is
given a panel which is suspended
by chains from the H of the original
pin. Students receiving pins are
Ralph Currin, pin and panel; Fran
cis Rugg, pin; Billy Thomson, pin,
and Francis Nickerson, pin.
Squirrel hunting seems to have
become quite the fad in the last
two weeks. Every night after school
and on Saturdays and Sundays a
group of students, girls as well as
boys, may be seen wandering over
the hills in search of those little
creatures that stand on their pe
tite hind legs and at the same time
make such a splendid target for

The Benzine Ring of Heppner
high school was organized for the
study of chemistry, first; the fur
thering of Interest in science and
physics, second. There are many
scientific facts that are used by
everyday workmen. Yet the "why"
for doing these things is not known.
Many people know that, when you
do such and such, so and so will
happen; but they do not know why.
Better results may be obtained in
using these facts if they are un
derstood. Here are four questions and their
answers. Before looking at the an
swer, ask yourself truthfully, "Do
I know the answer?"
Question: Why does carbon
Answer: Carbon-monoxide enters
the lungs and from the lungs is
absorbed into the blood. In the
blood, the carbon-monoxide forms
a very stable compound with the
haemoglobin of the blood. This
haemoglobin is the substance of
the blood which carries oxygen.
So, when the haemoglobin becomes
united with the carbon-monoxide,
the oxygen cannot get into the blood
stream and death is the result
Question: Why will slakecl lime
soften some hard water?
Answer: Most hard water con
tains calcium-bicarbonate. When
slaked lime is added, the calcium
bicarbonate, which is soluble in wa
ter, is changed to calcium carbon
ate, boiler scale, which settles to
the bottom of the receptacle or con
tainer. During the reaction water
is formed and carbon-dioxide is

Question: Why are nitrogen
compounds useful as explt sives?
Answer: It is a chemii al char
acteristic of ntirogen that few of
its compounds are stable. An un
stable compound breaks down into
its original compounds upon the
slightest inclination, generating
much heat and many volumes of
gas. For this reason nitrogen
compounds form the chief explosives.

Why the Sudden
Change to Liquid
Doctors have always recognized the
value of the laxative whose dose can
be measured, and whose action can
be thus regulated to suit individual
The public, too, is fast returning
to the use of liquid laxatives. People
have learned that a properly pre
pared liquid laxative brings a perfect
movement without any discomfort
at the time, or after.
The dose of a liquid laxative can
be varied to suit the needs of the
individual. The action can thus be
regulated. It forms no habit; you
need not take a "double dose" a day
or two later. Nor will a mild liquid
laxative irritate the kidneys.
The wrong cathartic may often do
more harm than good.
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is a
prescription, and is perfectly safe.
Its laxative action is based on senna
a natural laxative. The bowels will
