Now that another six weeks has
past, a majority of the students emit
a sigh of relief and prepare to "rest"
for a while. With the six weeks'
tests over, they are preparing to let
their work "slide" until the last of
the coming six weeks, and then hap
pens the same thing all over again
of trying to catch up on their back
work at the last minute. This is
typical of a great many students,
not only here, but everywhere, and
development of this habit is a very
bad thing. It is unfair to both the
students and the teacher.
The first five weeks they keep
putting off doing their work, think
ing there is plenty of time in which,
to do it. As a result, at the end of
these five weeks, they have accu
mulated so much work that they
have to work furiously to get it in
on time or else not get it in at all;
such is often the case. The last week
is one of mad haste and "cramming,"
and this type of thing is most un
desirable and should not be neces
sary had the students started doing
their work the first week instead of
waitnig until the last.
As this is the beginning of a new
six weeks, let us turn over a new
leaf, and get over this habit, if we
have it, of "waiting until the las1
minute." We have plenty of time in
which to do these things, if we would
just dig in and do them. Think of
all the time that we waste while we
should be applying ourselves. Let's
all resolve at the beginning to do
things on time from now on, be
cause, not only will our work, im
prove, but our grades as well.
We'll all agre that some improve
ment in our grades would be far
from distasteful after seeing our re
port cards this last time, and this
can be accomplished if we will get
off to a running start. The age-old
adage, "Never put off till tomorrow
what you can do today," adequately
fits in here. Let's recognize its wis
On Wednesday afternoon, Novem
ber 25, school was dismissed at 3:00
o'clock and thus began our four-day
.thanksgiving vacation. The next
day, of course, was the one during
which we celebrated the landing of
our forefathers in America and their
success here by taking a day off to
be thankful for the things we have
and the things we have accom
plished during the year.
As you all know, the Thanksgiving
Day tradition was started by the
Pilgrims who landed on Plymouth
Rock, and has been followed thru
out the centuries since. It is one
holiday to which our whole nation
pays respect. It is a symbol of the
establishment of a country and the
trials gone through while making it
a success therefore, the Pilgrims are
fully entitled to this holiday held in
Ileppner Meets Echo on Local Court
Heppner's Fighting Irish basketball
team will play their opening game
of the season here tomorrow with
the Echo squad. Echo has been
practicing for two months, and to
morrow's tilt should open the sea
son with a bang.
Although this is their first game,
the locals show signs of developing
into a pomising team. Heppner's out
fit will be a rangy one and will have
plenty of speed to play a fast-breaking
The schedule this year brings
Heppner up against some very for
midable opposition. Two class A

Hi and The Dalles. Nineteen games

What will be the new name for
the Heppner team? Due to the few
Irishmen on the squad, the name
Fighting Irish is not as appropriate
as it once was. There have been
eleven names submitted so far, and
it is hoped that more will come in.
It has been suggested that a namei
be chosen that will be easy to use
as a mascot. The name Fighting
Irish has won a good deal of fame
for the team, and it is with some re
gret that we turn to something else.
