Outstanding Season Completed
The game last Saturday when the
CCC boys defeated the Fighting
Irish by a score of 7-6, brought to
an end an otherwise successful foot
Coach Blankenship and his Fight
ing Irish began the football season
by winning their first game. -The
order in which the games were
played this year was:
Sept. 27, lone at Heppner, 7-0 in
favor of Heppner.
Oct 2, Fossil at Fossil, 0-0.
Oct. 11, Hermiston at Heppner,
13-0, In favor of Heppner.
Oct. 19, Condon at Heppner, 13-0,
in favor of Heppner. "
Oct. 25, lone at lone, 6-20, in fa
vor of Heppner.
The games with Mac-Hi and Con
don, scheduled for Nov. 2 and Nov.
9, were called off because of diph
theria in Heppner.
The boys that made up this year's
outstanding football team' were:
Backfleld, Len Gilman, Riley Mun
kers, La Verne Van Marter and
William McRoberts; ends, Howard
Furlong and Jimmy Driscoll;
guards, Boyd Redding and James
Farley; centers, Ray Coblantz and
Larry Forgey; tackles, William Mc
Caleb and Howard Bryant
Coach Blankenship worked hard
in order to get his boys in shape for
the games. Every evening after
school, the football squad donned
suits and went out to the field for
practice, where they worked hard
in order to improve their respective
positions in the team. If the stu
dent body had given the support
that they should have to the coach,
who turned out a team to be proud
of, and to the boys that made up
that team, we might be able to say,
"We did our part" But, we did not
do our part Let us give more sup
port to the basketball team, and we
may sincerely hope to be as proud
of that team as we are of the Fight
ing Irish football team.

There Is No Substitute for 1
I r" people who buy cheap things would some
day stop and put their experience through a
cross-examination, they would undoubtedly
be startled by the extravagance they have un
consciously imposed upon themselves. They
would see that though they paid less to buy,
the saving was wiped out several times over
through poor results. Genuine savings come
only through quality; for quality is the thing
of which service was born.
Quality gives to an article the ability to
perform in the finest degree all of the good
things expected of it. Quality makes the user
happy every time he thinks of the day of his
purchase. It keeps him in a sunny spirit while
using it It is the unquestioned preference of
everyone who refuses to sell the value of his
satisfaction for a mere difference in price to
buy. Price simply gives possession. But qual
ity makes that possession a thing of marvel
