Surprise Speaker Makes Hit
Students of Heppner high en
joyed one of the greatest treats in
the history of the school when Dr.
Alfred Cookman, the world famous
scientist, who gave up teaching in
order to become an adventurer and
naturalist, entertained the assem
bly on Wednesday, March 11. Dr.
Cookman 'spoke on several phases
of wild life, but depicted most viv
idly the habits and habitats of va
rious species of wild birds.
Fascinated, all present were
transported from pole to pole, from
desert to desert, across the dark
jungles of Borneo Island, and into
the wilds of tropical America and
Hollywood on the winged words of
Dr. Cookman. Sprinkling his travel
talks generously with much witty
and well directed humor, Dr. Cook
man kept the audience roaring with
Of special interest were the stuff
ed specimens of rare birds and the
flag of the International Adven
turer of the World. Admiral Rich
ard E. Byrd carried this same flag
over both north and south poles.
Before him the world famous ex
plorers and adventurers Zane Grey,
Sir Kingsford Smith, and Dr. Tor
rance had borne the flag to the far
corners of the globe. Dr. Cook
man was the last to carry the flag,
and Heppner was the last town in
which it was displayed. From here
ik was scui ias Hie oiuiiiiaKJiiiaii .in
stitute in Washington, D. C, where
it now resides.
Dr. Cookman was accorded a tre
mendous ovation of enthusiastic ap
plause at the end of his discourse.
The junior class held a meeting
Friday after school. The main
topic of discussion was the play
which is to be presented before the
student body In the near future.
They also brought up the subject of
where to go on Flunk Day. This
topic aroused such a heated argu
ment that the meeting was soon

Heppner Team Third
The Heppner high debate team
under the direction of Mr. Evans,
made a very creditable showing at
the debate tournament held in Pen
dleton last Saturday. The scores
were figured on a point basis with
each judge's vote counting as one
point. In this way, it was possible
for the two sides of one team to
make six points in each debate,
there being three judges hearing
each side. The affirmative side of
the Heppner team, Ernest Clark
and Irene Beamer, won a three to
nothing decision over Condon's
negative. Heppner's negative, Scott
McMurdo and William McCaleb, re
ceived one vote for their debate
against Condon's affirmative. This
gave Heppner four points and put
them in a tie for first place with
the Hermiston team. In the sec
ond debate, Heppner was not so
fortunate and dropped to third
place. The final standings were,
Hermiston first, Pendleton second,
Heppner third, Condon fourth, and
The subject for debate was, "Re
solved: That the several states
should enact legislation providing
for a system of complete medical
service available to all citizens at

Baseball practice was officially
started Monday at the Rodeo field.
The coach was greeted by a large
group of baseball artists. The group
was headed by six men of last year's
team. These men are Howard Bry
ant, catcher; Leonard Gilman, pit
cher; Don Turner, second base; Bill
McRoberts, third base; Riley Mun
kers, shortstop, and Charles Cox,
left field. There are three vacan
cies. The men lost were LaVerne
Van Marter, first base; Louis Gil
liam, enter field, and Don Drake,
right field. The former was lost
because of an attack of spinal men
ingitis during the first semester;
the latter were lost through grad
uation. Heppner high school has reason
to believe that they will have a bet
ter team than last year's team,
which was undefeated in six starts.
With proper support the team will
soar to greater heights this year.
It is hoped that many townspeople
will attend the games to watch a
good team play good baseball.

BEFORE yon take any prepari
tion you don't know all abou
for the relief of headaches: or the
pains I rheumatism, neuritis or

thinks about It in comparison
with Genuine Bayer Aspirin.
We say this because, before Che

so-called "pain" remedies were ad

bad for the stomach; oc often, for
the heart And the discovery of
Bayer Aspirin largely changed
Countless thousands of people
who have taken Bayer Aspirin year

proved that the medical findings
about its safety were correct.
Remember this: Genuine Bayer
Aspirin is rated among the fastest

of headaches and all common pains

to take regularly.
You can get real Bayer Aspirin at
