The Year Closes
The school year of 1935 and 1936
has been very successful for both
teachers and students. There have
been several disappointments, but
we always came through smiling.
The cooperation of the teachers
and students has made everyone
happy during the year and surely
there are many who are wishing
that this Is the first week of school
Instead of the last week.
Heppner had a very successful
year in the athletic world. They
won nearly all of the games they
participated in. They were unde
feated by any other school in foot
ball and baseball although the bas
ketball season was not so success
ful due to a continued run of Ill
ness and tough luck. The baseba'l
season will be completed this Fri
day when they play Fossil for the
championship of Gilliam, Morrow
and Wheeler counties.
Al of the students are very busy,
especially the seniors. The seniors
are trying to finish their work and
are getting ready for the graduation
Let us all hope that next year is
as successful as this year in every
Tonight, May 21, is the night for

Last Saturday a track meet was
held on the local field with the
COC camp and our high school. The
CCC camp won first place in the
shot put, and the Heppner boys

66 1-3 to 16.
Friday, May 22, the high school
baseball team will go to Fossil to
nlav for a three-county champion
ship, Wheeler, Grant and Morrow
counties. This will m me lougnesi
team the boys have run up against,

One night this week the Frosh
boya will play the grade school boys
a game of baseoau.

This poem is a fitting selection
for the last week of school:
Our school is nearly over,
And are we truly glad
To free ourselves of lessons;
Of fear of being "bad"?
Summer is before us.
Will we profit from her days,
Of happiness and sunshine,
Or of cloudiness and haze?
Shall our lives be better moulded;
Our hearts more sorrow know?
Shall we grow more sympathetic
As onward, now, we go?
Let us try to make this summer
A joyous one for all,
To be refreshed and happy
When 'tis time for school next
By Betty Marie Adkins,
The students of the English VI
Journalism class of Heppner high
school wish to take this opportun
ity to thank the Heppner Gazette
Times for publishing our school pa
per, The Hehisch. The editing of
the Hehisch has afforded us a won
derful opportunity to put into prac
tical use that which we had learned
about journalism. It has also given
ua a little pride when we were able
to see our work in print which was
made possible only by the publish
ing of the Hehisch.
As we all know, there has been a
great deal of work done to decrease
the number of car accidents and the
number of deaths caused by this.
The schools play a rather import
ant part In this work. The high
school and grade school of Heppner
have been doing a great deal tow
ard this aim.
The sixth grade has been giving
safety plays and making a safety
code and rules for children. The
fifth grade has been working hard
at making original safety rhymes.
In the seventh and eighth grades
It was required that each student
write an essay, entitled, "A Definite
Program for My Community to
Prevent Highway Accidents and
Promote Highway Safety." Two of
these essays were chosen and sent
to enter the state contest. An as
sembly was held on Friday, May 15,
for the purpose of demonstrating
the safety rules.
The grade school is not alone in
tha work. An assembly was held
on Monday, May 18, for the pur
pose of the Safety Driving project
A ten minute test was given to the
students. After this several talks
were given. A longer test was then

It's easy to be thrifty when
you have an electric range!
O Inexpensive meals don't mean plain,
unappetizing meals to owners of electric
ranges. Far from it! Low-cost meats pre
pared in the cooker pot or in the moist
heat, no-draft oven of an electric range
reveal thrilling and unsuspected flavors.
And such tenderness, too!
With an electric range, it's so easy to
cook vegetables the waterless way. Be
cause all the natural minerals, vitamins
and flavors are retained, even ordinary
vegetables become so delicious that they
provoke praise from vegetable-shy

This is the year to buy an Electric Refrigerator.
The 1936 models are the best yet in value,
beauty of design and efficiency. The small

low PP&L rates, electric refrigeration never
