William Windsor, "sage of Wind
sor Castle," was a vistior in the city
Saturday from the lone section. In
his fifty years in the county he be
lieves the present fall season to be
the driest and coldest he has exper
ienced. He recently sold his farm
north of lone and is now located
on a small place just below town.
In spite of his having battled life
for 81 years, he was proud of the
fact that he was still able to
"scratch out his own livelihood." Mr.
Windsor obtained the title of sage
of Windsor Castle several years ago
when he made regular philosophical
contributions under that cognomen
to the lone newspaper.

successful, Harold said. He took a

Arthur Johnson, in the city Mon
day from the lone section, reported
that he had not yet teeded his
wheat. He said growing conditions
so far this fall were not very pros
pective, and he believed it might be
better to wait till spring. If things
open up right in January, he
thought he might get it in the
ground then. His January seeding
did quite well this year compared
with crops sown at other times.

Our football team this year was
one of which we should be proud.
Although it was on to a compar
atively slow start, it became better
as the season went along and cli
maxed with a victory over Hermis
ton on Armistice Day. As well as
for their victories, the players on
the Heppner team should be com
mended for their fine sportsman
ship, which is just as important as
To the townspeople, much credit
is also due for their fine support
throughout the season, -Jipecially at
the Hermiston game. The players
were particularly aware of this, and
they certainly appreciated this sup
port. One thing, however, could
have been averted, and that was
the goal post episode at the end of
the game. Even though they were
overjoyed at the outcome, it seems
as though the Heppner rooters
could have restrained their barbaric
Instincts enough to keep from de
stroying property. The goal posts
were put up there for a definite
purpose and were permanent struc
tures not to be demolished at the
end of every game.
The most tragic thing about the
affair, however, is the danger of re
sentment on the part of the Her
miston players and rooters. This
resentment may spring :ip and des
troy the fine sportsmanship, of
which we are proud, between the
two teams. There will be a ten
dency for them to do the same thing
to us some day as a means of get
ting even, and unless some im
provement is made on the sports
manship of the Heppner rooters, it
is liable to be in the near future.
Sportsmanship! It means a lot to
the players; let's make it mean a
lot to us.
The Heppner grade and high
schools observed Armistice Day last
Tuesday afternoon with a program
in the gymnasium. The program
opened with group singing of "The
Star Spangled Banner." Following
this were several music l numbers
by the different classes of the grade
school. The most outst-inding of
these were the songs by the eighth
grade boys. After one song, the
applause was so great that they
were obliged to sing another. Dora
Bailey gave the poem entitled '"In
The guest speaker of the after
noon was Mrs .Lucy E. Rodgers.
Her topic was "Armistice."
The program closed with the
grmip singing "America."
Basketball Season Under Way
Basketball practice started Mon
day night, under the supervision of
Coach Tet. The team's practice
will consist of learning fundament
als and developing team play.
The offensive play will be par
ticularly emphasized, although the
defensive will not be neglected.
The first fame will be piuyed with
Echo, which boasts a well coached
aggregation who are starting aoiive
game play earlier than the home
squad. About twenty aspirants are
seeking positions on the team.
Many new faces are to be seen this
year. Veteran members of the squad
are Gilman, Van Marter, Munkers,
Turner and Cox.

everybody has become lately? Have
you wondered what It is all about?
The reason for all of this is that
next week six weeks' exams will be
given. Some students think that if
they work real hard the last week
of the six weeks to make up for the
work they didn't do the first of the
six weeks, they will receive just as
good grades. Many of these stu
dents will be badly disappointed
when they get their cards and will

Plastered with blood and glory,
Heppner high's Morrow county
champions trotted victoriously off
Hermiston's battle-torn gridiron
Armistice day. Using their polished
aerial attack to a wonderful ad
vantage, together with a smooth
running attack, the Irish scored
early and held the lead throughout
Hermiston won the toss and
chose to receive. Heppner, taljing
the ball from the Bulldogs on a
fumble, marched quickly down the
field to their opponent's 6 yard line.

and after four unsuccessful at
tempts to score, Heppner lost the
ball on downs to Hermiston, who
quickly punted out of danger. The
quarter ended with the ball in mid-
After an exchange of punts, the
Irishmen s passes started clicking,
Gilman's pass to Van Marter was
good for 10, and then reversing the
order, Gilman snagged Van Mar
ter'a pass out of the hands of two
would-be lntercepters and galloped
15 yards to a touchdown. Van Mar
ter, on a line plunge, made the ex
tra point. Score :7-0.
The half ended shortly after
Heppner had again kicked off.
" Recovering a fumble shortly af
ter the opening of the second per
iod, the rvier team, in six plays,
pushed over their lone score. At
this point the whole Heppner line
rose up in defense of their one point
lead and stopped the attempted
conversion at the line of scrimmage.
Hermistons final threat was
squelched when Munkers speared a
long Bulldog pass out of the air and
ran 30 yards before being downed
on Hermiston's 43 yard line. Still
trying vainly to score, the Umatil
lians made three consecutive first
downs before the final gun.
Seven local seniors finished their
footbal careers for Heppner with
this game: Fred Hoskins, letter-
man transfer from lone a brilliant
left end, always fighting with never
a let-up. His best game of the year
was at Arlington.
Norton King, one year letterman
at left end speediest man on the
team, who capably filled his position
as a kingman.
Gerald Cason, right half with no
previous football experience, start
ed as a guard but ended the season
in the backfleld. His fine tackling
was a highlight of the Armistice
Riley Munkers, safety and quar
terback smalest but most de
pendable man on the team. His
ability to return punts was a de
ciding factor in Heppner's success
Len Gilman, left half captain
and signal-caller. Was an out
standing player all season. His
brilliant runs, accurate passes, and
long punts made him the back
bone of Heppner s attack.
Andy Shoun, tackle a senior
utility man who always turned in
a good game.
Bill McCaleb, tackle another
graduating senior. A good lineman
who paved the way for Heppner's
numerous power plays.
Last Friday the football boys,
Coach and Mrs. Tetz, and Mr. and
Mrs. Biankenship were entertained
at a banquet given by the home ec
onomics club. From the reports of
those attending, the banquet was a
huge success. Coach Tetz acted as
toastmaster, and, from the general
opinion, handled the dinner in quite
an interesting manner. The talks
were carried on in form of a foot
ball game. Each boy had to make
a speech, and if it was good enough,
the ball was advanced five yards.
When half of the boys had spoken,
time was called for the half. Dur
ing the "half," Mr. Biankenship
gave his opinion of the past foot
ball season and of the future bas
ketball season. In the second half
the remaining boys, by their spec
tacular plays, or should we say
speeches, advanced the ball over
the goal line to a touchdown. The-
banquet was concluded with the
singing of the Heppner Loyalty
After the banquet, a dance was
held wtih everyone having a most
enjoyable time. The majority of
the student body, especially the
football boys, hope this banquet may
be an annual school custom.
