Word wag received by Heppner
relatives the end of the week of the
appointment of Jared C. Aiken as
manager for southern California for
the Metroplitan Casualty company
with headquarters at Los Angeles.
Mr. Aiken has been manager of the
Oakland office of the company for

vancement indicates a high quality

misstatement made last week in
regard to Dr. McMurdo's visit to
Corvallis for the O. S. C. home

Thanksgiving Day! These words
bring to our minda the thoughts of
delicious food. Our first though is
turkey. Who could help but enjoy
a nicely cooked turkey with dress
ing, sauce, celery, sweet potatoes,
and all the other holiday foods? We
are all human enough to get hun
gry, especially at Thanksgiving
time. Yes, we are all human enough
to get hungry; but so do animals'.
We human beings are capable of a
feeling higher than hunger; we
know the real meaning of Thanks
giving Day if we would only re
member it. Instead of observing it
as a day of worship, most of us
think only of the good food we will
get to eat. Let us, on this 1934
Thanksgiving Day, remember to
give thanks as well as to eat. Ani
mals have not the intelligence to
thank God. We have more intelli
gence than animals and have a
mind and appreciation for higher
things. Let's act like it!

The second and third grades are
making picture books for Thanks
giving. The third grade has completed
their form unit with a miniature
form on the sand table. They have
also decorated their room for
Thanksgiving. They are writing
a dramatization, "The Brewster
Family Comes to America."
Some original poems were made
by the fourth grade and set to mu

On Friday, November 23, a good
crowd attended the three basket
ball games played at the school
gymnasium. The first of the series
was a preliminary game played be
tween two teams picked from the
high school squad. Jimmy Farley
was high point man in this game.
The second was played between
two teams picked from the girls
high school gym class.
In the main event of the evening
the high school varsity lost to the
town team by a score of 43 to 27.
Joe Green was the high point man
for the varsity team and Al Massey

The project of hot lunches seems
so far to be a big success. They are
for the benefit of the students that
live in the country. Many of the
students pay for the foods in kind,
that ia by giving vegetables, milk,
butter, etc. Miss Staley has charge
of the management. Miss Doherty
keeps the accounts. The enterprise
is almost self supporting. A pro
gram Is under way that will prob
ably be given as a benefit to the hot
lunches, just before Christmas.
The girls of Heppner high school
gave a tea in honor of their moth
ers Friday afternoon. The purpose
of the tea was to interest the moth
ers in a Girls' league. Irene Beamer
and Kathryn Parker explained the
meaning of the Girls' league. Olivia
Baldwin gave a reading, Jessie
French sang two songs accompan
ied by Miss Brownson. Mrs. E. L.
Morton expressed her opinion on
the subject of the league. Tea and
wafers were served throughout the
hour. During this time Marjorie
Parker played the piano.
The tea was very successful and
it is hoped that a Girls' league may
be organized in the near future.
