Heppner Irish Prepare for Condon
The Heppner Irislj will entertain
the Condon hoopsters on the local
maple court Friday, January 3. The
powerful Condon squad is due foi
an unexpected surprise. The Hepp
ner squad is out for game, and the
Condon boys look like the most
most likely prey.
The Irish are weakened by the
loss of a valuable player in La
Verne Van Marter, who is ill. How
ever, they expect to make up for
this loss by more cooperation, bet
ter, passing, and better shooting in
the coming game.
Watch out! Heppner is due for
a bang-up game.

New Year's Day, the time for

Safeway Stores Boost
Oakland, Dec. 31. Newspaper
advertising and its increasing value
to the continued business and in
dustrial development of the nation
was emphasized here today in a
statement made public by L. A
Warren, president of Safeway
Citing his own company as a bar
ometer to indicate the attitude of
business towards advertising, War
ren declared that he considered the
growth of Safeway Stores, Inc., and
other chain systems but a reflection
of the power of newspapers to
build and retain public respect and
"As far as Safeway is concerned,
"our advertising has been predom
nantly newspaper advertising, and
I consider it an important factor
in the growth of this company.
"It is through advertising that
people come to know and to un
derstand the scope of any business
concern's public service, and the
commodities it offers for public con
sumption. In this new age of com
merce and distribution, consistent
advertisng helps materially to cre
ate respect and confidence for those
who use newspaper space.
"It seems only natural that those
concerns using newspaper adver
tising uninterrupted year after year
do retain the highest confidence of
the public they serve. Their cus
tomers have found out that they
can truthfully rely upon the ad
vertised product, service and econ
omy which so often feature the
display copy of the chain stores."
Warren referred to the succession
of farmer - consumer campaigns
waged by Safeway Stores, Inc., to
help farmers stimulate consumption
for agricultural products as anoth
er example of the power of adver
tising. "We have repeatedly endeavored
to help farmers dispose of surplus
or distressed crops by conducting
widespread advertising campaigns
on certain products at various sea
sons of the year," he said. "These
campaigns have been eminently
successrui, and tneir beneficial ef
fects to agriculture are both a trib
ute to newspaper advertising and
the advantages of chain-store dis
tribution. "The fact that chain stores are
believers in advertising has con
siderably accelerated the pace of
their progress it has enlarged their
opportunities to further serve the
consuming public and pass on to
them the economical benefits of the
chain-store distribution system."
lone High Alumni
Hold Class Reunions
The graduating classes of 1934
and 1935 of lone high school held
a reunion at the A. H. Nelson home
December 27. Hosts were Ellen
and Fred Nelson and Donald and
Harriet Heliker. Those found pres
ent In class '34 were Henry Buschke,
Earle Pettyjohn, Walter Bristow,
Theodore Thompsen, Fred Nelson,

Mrs. President, Unlikely
A woman who had obtained a job
as co-pilot on an air-mall line re
signed because she could not enter
the Pilot's Union and so was not
permitted to fly passengers In bad
weather. This caused Amelia Ear-
hart to suggest the raising of a
fund "to break down the barriers
against women in aviation."
Miss Earhart has done much her
self to break down such barriers,
but it will take a long time to de
stroy the prejudice inherited thru
many generations in which men
have managed transportation. No
woman drove chariots through the
streets of Rome or commanded gal
leons on the Mediterranean. No
Indian squaw captains a canoe; no
dark-eyed maiden earned a living
as a gondolier, and even in modern
taxicabs not more than one driver
in a thousand is a woman.
These are sad historical facts,
and I do not blamt the self-reliant
maidens of the present from being
rebellious toward them. But there
is an even sadder fact which is
this the real despots who keep wo
men out of the top positions are not
the men but the women themselves.
A leading feminist refused to have
a woman doctor when her children
were born. "I like women," she
said, "and I battle for them. But
when I am sick I don't want one
fussing around me." Another wo
man, successful in business, re
fused an interview to a woman
bond-salesman. "I work hard for
my money," she explained. "Do
you think I want to let a woman
An organization which proposes
to elect a woman President of the
United States asks me to write in
favor of their movement, but I an
swer that it will no do good. "The
men will not put up much of a
fight," I say, "But you never will
be successful. No woman will be
President, because the women will
vote against her."
For some millions of years wives
have turned to husbands in emer
gencies and cried: "What shall I
do?" Some day doubtless this habit
will pass away in just about as
many million years as it has taken
the habit to be formed.
Faith Greater Than Hope
"Billy Sunday is dead but he
had something worth more than
money or fame or the splendor of
kings. If you are a very sophisti
cated person you may have thought
him an emotional clown, but nc
one who knew him ever could doubt
that he believed what he preached.
He was as sure of the existence of
God and Heaven as he was of his
own presence on earth. Abraham,
Isaac and Jacob, Moses and St.
Peter were as real to him in their
angelic robes as were the people
who appeared physically before his
eyes. He was sure also of his own
salvation; he knew he would go to
Compared with the brain of Rob
ert G. Ingersoll, the brain of "Billy"
may have been an inferior instru
ment of thought, but what would
'Ingersoll have given for "Billy's"
unquestioning faith; Ingersoll
achieved fame as the great agnostic
because his intellectual honesty
would not permit him to affirm what
he could not prove. But yearning
almost pathetically, he hoped; and
once, at his brother's grave, he gave
this tragic utterance to that hope:
"Life is a narrow vale between
the cold and barren peaks of two
eternities. We strive in vain to
look beyond the heights. We cry
aloud, and the only answer is the
echo of our wailing cry. From the
voiceless lips of the unreplying
dead there comes no word, but in
the night of death hope sees a star,
and listening love can hear the rus
tle of a wing."
Ingersoll wanted to believe; "Bil
ly" Sunday believed. Which was
the more fortunate? If it were
possible to implant in every heart
the certainty that "Billy" possessed,
it would be the greatest blessing
that could be conferred upon man
kind. Copyright. 1935. K.F.S.
