year which we hope to make the
most successful and happiest school
year we have yet had. It can be
done but its success requires the
backing of all of us. We are off to
a good start with everybody show

Let's keep up the good work in
making this year the best we have
ever had in Heppner High and in
years to come we can look back
and remember that we did our
share in making it the best year.

and girls running from one end of
our school building to the other?
To show their very high station In
our school classes, they have donned
