Henry Smouse was in the city the
end of the week from the lone sec
tion. Mr. Smouse believed that a
good heavy snow was about the best
thing that could hit his section at
this time. Rain would be all right
if the weather should continue open,
but chances are that it would freeze
rght up, solidifying the top of the
ground so that later snow would
run off without going into the
ground. Whereas, should snow
come now while the soil is loose,
the moisture would all go into the
ground as the snow thawed.

Teachers Institute
The teachers of Morrow county
met Friday, November 6, for their
annual institute in the high school
auditorium in Heppner. The morn
ing addresses were "interpreting the
school to the Community," by Mrs.
Willam Kletzer, president of Ore
gon Congress of Parents and Teach
ers, and "Professional Organizations
for Teachers," by James M. Bur
gess, former superintendent of
Heppner hgh school, now in that
capacity in the Milton-Freewater
schools. Immediately after the ad
dresses the group divided into sev
eral sections under the direction of
Miss Grace Forette, Mr. Burgess,
and Dr. O. R. Chambers of Oregon
State college.
Following the morning sessions,
luncheon was served at Hotel Hepp
ner. The high school girls trio
sang two numbers.
In the afternoon Austin Landreth,
Pendelton schools, spoke on the
subject, "Curriculum Revision in
the Field of Reading." Dr. Cham
bers gave an address entitled "Fish
ing for Truth."
As in the morning the assembly
broke into several sections, one of
these being a demonstration lesson
illustrating the panel method of
teaching. Members of the panel
were taken from the Heppner high
school American History class. The
musical contributions in the after
noon consisted of a piano solo by
Mrs. Alden Blankenship and a vo
cal solo by Mrs. Ture Peterson.
The morning program was opened
with two violin solos by Stan Atkin,
Irrigon schools, accompanied by
Norbert Peavy, and a vocal solo
by Miss Helen Ralph of the lone
In the evening, dinner was served
at the Episcopal Parish house.
Again Mr. Atkins played two violin
solos, accompanied by Norbert
Peavy. In addition, a trio com
posed of grade school girls sang.
The institute was closed with a
dance at the Eiks' temple spon
sored by the American Legion and
Social Hour
Many of the high school students
fail to attend the social hour. In
doing this they fail to do their part
in having a good time themselves
and making It more enjoyable for
the others. The social hour, given
to the student body for their enter
tainment, was introduced three
years ago by the students and ap
proved by the faculty. For some
time it was very successful, but as

has been shown lately there seems
to be a lack of interest Students
do not seem to care to participate
in the games or they do not take
an active part in the dancing. Those
who think that there will always be
social hours, and consequently keep
putting off coming, are badly dis
ilusioned. There is danger that the
social hour will be discontinued un
less the students take an Immediate

Grade School News
The first grade has completed its
farm sand table.
Billy Jones has been quite ill for
the past two weeks. He is now In
a hospital in Portland.
Joan Graves of the second grade
has moved to Lexington where she
is now attending school.
The second grade is beginning on
a unit for Thanksgiving.
A very Interesting program was
given by the sixth grade last Thurs
day with the fifth grade as the
audience. The program consisted
of poems, a tap dance, and songs.
Many of the students here in
Heppner high school are dependent
on other students for introducing
whatever student activity there may
be. They do not display any pep"
and they are continually complain
ing about the inactiveness of the
student body. They never try to
stimulate any activity themselves.
They sit about with long, drawn
faces and find fault with everything
in general. These students are just
the ones who are to blame for the
lack of interest in student activity.
There i3 an abundance of school
"pep," but it is being displayed in
the wrong way as evidenced by
shooting of rubber bands and the
throwing of erasers by some who
do not value courtesy and citizen
ship. If this energy was spent in
keeping the floors clean, the refer
ence books in order, and the halls
less noisy, we would help immense
ly in making our school one to be
proud of. This practice Is far from
new, as many other schools have
made this a successful program.
Let's not let our school fall behind!
School spirit is not wholly con-
fined to the support of the athletic
teams, although it does play a ma
jor part School spirit should be
present In every student body func
tion. More interest should be taken
in the student body meetings. In
stead of waiting for the other fellow
to do it, each members of the stu
dent body should contribute his
share in making every student body
meeting a success as far as accom
plishment is concerned.
Aside from the Girls' League, the
clubs of Heppner high school have
been practically non-existent as far
as activity prevails. This is par
ticularly true of the Benzine Ring
and the "H" club. If we are a mem
ber of a club, we should take an
active part in its affairs and make
our clubs mean something.
School spirit is something that no
school can do without and yet get
very far. Let's each of us do our
part and make our school alive with
enthusiasm, as it should be!
Armistice Day
Eighteen years ago, November 11,
a peace treaty was signed which
ended the World War. From that
time, November 11 has been called
Armistice Day.
Many do not realize the real
meaning of this day. To many peo
ple it is just a holiday or a day of
vacation. We are guilty of ingrat
itude if we do not pause every once
in a while to express our apprecia
tion of the sacrifice of the ones who
fought the nation's battles in the
World War. For this reason, Arm
istice Day should be celebrated each
year as a national holiday.

Peterson, selected four girls, one

Class and dub News
The classes of Heppner high have
been rather dormant for the past
week as no meetings have been
The Girls' League will discuss,
in their next meetnig, the possibil
ity of club dues and the coming car
nival. The Home Economics club is
planning a banquet and dance for
the football boys Friday, November
13. The dance will be held at the
Parish house after the banquet. The
students and post-graduates of lone,
Lexington and Heppner will be In
vited to attend the dance. An ad
mission of 25c will be charged.
The "H" club had a meeting Mon
day noon to discuss means of rais
ing money for their treasury. Some
of the suggestions offered were to
give a smoker near the first of Jan
uary, to sponser a show at the Star
theater, and to give a dance near
Christmas time.
The Benzine Ring will hold a
business meeting Thursday night
for the purpose of discussing the
future work of the Ring, and plans
will be made for the annual Ben
zine Ring banquet.
Cost of Tuesday's election to the
taxpayers of Oregon was estimated
at approximately $80,000 by Dave
O'Hara, elections clerk in the state
department. Of this amount ap-
proximately $23,000 Is to be paid
by the state for printing and mail
ing the voters' pamphlets, poll books
and other election supplies, and
$57,000 by the several counties for
printing the ballots, wages to elec
tion officials and rental of polling
places. O'Hara points out that ap
proximately 12,190 judges and clerks
were employed in the 1625 pre
cincts throughout the state, includ
ing those employed on the count
ing boards In the larger city pre
cincts. Six dead and eight Injured was
the tell of grade crossing accidents
in Oregon during October accord
ing to records compiled by the pub
lic utilities commission. The Oc
tober death list sets a new high rec
ord for grade crossing casualties in
this state, topping the May, 1938,
record by one fatality.
