much, and that he has begun to get
back on "Mr. Misner's feet" again.

Keep It Up
Keep what up? Keep up the
enthusiasm that has been apparent
at the games lately. We are glad
to see the students taking more of
an interest. It was proved at the
assembly held Friday afternoon
that we hadn't lost our yelling abil
ity. Maybe there weren't many stu
dents at the game Saturday night,
but those present are to be compli
mented. They cheered and made
all the noise they possibly could. We
are all proud of our team, and we
are proud that Heppner has the
honor of being host to several other
towns at the district tournament
Last year we were to have the dis
trict tournament here, but owing
to certain complications it was
given to another town. Now that
we have it here we will show the
surrounding country what Hepp
ner can do.
Rodman Speaks to Class
Millard Rodman, head of the soil
erosion work of the government
soil conservation project in Hepp
ner, gave a review to the General
Science class of the work being
done. In his talk, he brought out
the problems and ways of conserv
ing the fertile soil of this vicinity.
Experimental work is being car
ried out on four farms where rep
resentative problems of the com
munity are found. Some of these
problems are the washing of the
soil on the hills, trampling of new
grass because of lack of watering
places, collecting of the debris In
creek channels, and the decreasing
amount of bunch grass. To coun
teract these things, terracing of
the hills, developing of springs,
widening and clearing of creek
channels and the planting of crest
et wheat and trees are being done.
The " Illustrations of the problems
and rectification of them were
shown to the class. Concluding
his talk, he Invited the boys of the
class out to the camp to lunch and
to become acquainted with the pro
gram being carried out, and alao
to be shown around the CCC camp.
An assembly was held last Fri
day, January 24. Howard Cleve
land, student body president, re
minded the classes to elect officers
for this semester. Mr. Bloom
pleasantly surprised the student
body by announcing that Heppner
would be host to the district bas
ketball tournament in the spring.
A program was given by the "H"
club. This was given as a radio
program over station "WOW.11

Heppner Lose Exciting Game
The game with the Mac HI team
Saturday night was a very excit
ing one. In the first quarter Mac
Hi began to tramp down the floor
for baskets. Then in the second
quarter the fighting Irish began
clicking and ran the score up fif
teen points before the end of the
half. The half-time score was 15-
20. Heppner fans had high hopes
as their team came out for the
final half. They were not disap
pointed until mid-way In the third
period when Mac Hi rallied with
a barrage of long howitzers to run
the score from 19-21 to 19-38. Al
though the Heppnerites shot often
they failed to connect with the bas
ket the rest of the game. The score
at the end of the game was 19-44 in
Mac Hi's favor. The Irish are look
ing forward to some measure of
revenge at Milton when they con
test the Pioneers again during the
middle of February.

Seed Corn Selection Started
Hili3boro To develop a uniform
and high-yield strain of Minnesota
13" seed corn, Floyd Bierly of
Route 1, Beaverton, is conducting a
rigid program of seed selection, re
ports L. E. Francis, assistant coun
ty agent. He began last year by
selecting 40 ears from two tons of
seed corn, planting 30 hills from
each ear in 100 foot rows in a
special seed bed. After Inspection
for uniformity of stand, type and
yield, seven of the 40 rows were
selected. From these the corn was
husked, weighed and yields per acre
calculated, after which five rows
were selected from the seven. The
seed from the five ears from which
this seed came will be planted In a
separate plot to produce the seed
for the 1937 crop.

Pasture Most Important
Oregon Farm Crop, OSC
Surprising as it may seem to any
one who has never seen the figures,
approximately 69 per cent of the
farm land in Oregon is used for
pasture purposes, and the most im
portant farm crop In Oregon is
Research men in the farm man
agement department at Oregon
State college, who have recently is
sued a progress report on a survey
of the costs and carrying capacities
of farm pastures in Oregon, point
out that only in the Willamette
valley is less than half of the farm
area used for pasture, and in some
sections of the state mere than 80
per cent of the farm acreage is in
some grass or pasture crop.
This study of Oregon farm pas
ture land, the first year of which
has just been completed and is dis
cussed In the progress report, is be
ing conducted with four main pur
poses in view. These are to deter
mine the carrying capacities of va
rious types of tame and native pas
tures in the different agricultural
regions of Oregon; to find the costs
of establishing and maintaining
these pastures; to point out the
major factors which affect these
costs, and to find methods by which
such costs may be reduced.
Preliminary figures for the 1935
census show a total of 171,000
horses and mules, 929,000 cattle, and
2,210,000 sheep on Oregon farms on
January 1, 1935, the report points
out. Much of the feed supply of
this vast herd must come from
farm pasture land of the state.
The great economy in cost of
maintaining stock on pasture as
compared with feeding hay and
grain, both in direct cash outlay and
in gross cost, is one of the prin
cipal points brought out by the sur
vey in which .information has been
obtained so far on 15,964 acres o
pasture on 319 different farms.
About 50 per cent of the total cost
of producing hay and grain is di
rect cash outlay, while the cash cost
of pasture is only about 25 per cent,
it is pointed out.
The report is available in mimeo
graphed form to all Oregon resi
dents upon request While much
of the information contained in t
is necessarily of a preliminary na
ture, it would undoubtedly be of
value to those planning to estab
lish permanent pastures, those con
ducting the survey believe.

3 To turn out more
Any electric laundering appliance
washer, ironer or water heater will
do so much to lighten your work. Any
two of them or all three will make
your work still easier. But the ideal
arrangement is to have all three
placed in a carefully designed laundry.
Then you will enjoy maximum effi
ciency with a minimum of labor. You
will waste no steps, no motions. Your
equipment will do all the hard work
not you. And your laundering time will
be very substantially reduced.
So decide now to have an all-electric
laundry. You may have to acquire your
washer, ironer and automatic electric
water heater one appliance at a time.
But do work out a plan for your all
electric laundry and work toward the
completion of that plan as you buy
