Football season is upon us once
again. Our chances for a winning
team are bright, but a lot depends
on us. A good team is not made
from practice alone. It is made
from the support it gets. Attend
ing the games will not help much if
we just go to be going somewhere:
we have to go to the games with the
idea of backing our team, winning
or losing. Cheering them on wheth
er it was a touchdown or a poor
play is really showing our loyalty
to the team. Razzing our team or
the opposing team only shows our
poor sportsmanship, and is a dis
credit to our high school.
Let us, throughout the football
season, and later the basketball
season, show our team that we are
loyal to them whether they win or
whether they lose.
This year, let's fight for the team!

All those of Heppner school who
wish to enter band work this year
should see Mr. Buhman, band in
structor, some time this week. All
students from the fifth grade up
who are doing average work in
school, have an ambition to achieve,
and will work, are eligible.
Because of students graduating
and leaving Heppner, each year
there are vacancies in the senior
band to be filled. To fill these vacan
cies, a junior band is maintained.
If a senior band member does not
do capacity work, he will be re
placed by a member of the junior
band. It is hoped that provision
will soon be made for a city band
for Heppner so that those who grad
uate from school and those of the
city who are interested will have
an opportunity to carry on band
