Heppner to Play Grass Valley
This coming Saturday night at the
gymnasium the Heppner and Grass
Valley high school basketball teams
will oppose each other for the first
time in several years, in what prom
ises to be the most exciting game so
far this season at Heppner.
Having taught at Grass Valley for
several years, Mr. Tetz, coach of
Heppner's team, knows most of the
boys on their team and says that
four of the five have played bas
ketball together since they were in
the fourth grade. This in an indi
cation of the strength of their team,
and as many of you will remember
Grass Valley represented their dis
trict at the district tournament here
last year, and will undoubtedly be
the strongest team Heppner has
played so far" this season.
The Heppner team is also com
posed of veterans and has won four
out of the five games it has played.
Both the Heppner and Grass Valley
teams play the same type of game,
a fast-breaking offense and man-toman
defense, and consequently the
game will be fast and full of thrills,
with anything liable to happen. If
Heppner can win this game, it will
be an indication that our team is
really going places. Mr. Tetz is par
ticularly anxious to win this game
from a personal standpoint, and the
team members intend to do their
Everybody be sure to come! It is
guaranteed that you will see a game
well worth seeing and one you'll not
Heppner Swamps Lexington
In a fast rough game on the local
court last week, the Fighting Irish
took the measure of the Lexington
squad and ran over them by a 21
Heppner took an early lead and
held it throughout the remainder of
the game, the score at half time be
ing 23 to 5.
Munkers of Heppner paced both
squads with 11 points, while his
teammates, Turner and Gilman,
garnered 10 each. High scorer for
the Jackrabbits was Palmer, with 3
Basketball season is upon us again,
Our chances for a winning team are
bright, but a lot depends upon us,
the students. A good team is not
made from practice alone. It is made
from the support it gets. ATTEND
ING THE GAMES will not help
much if we go just to be going
somewhere. We have to go to the
games with the idea in mind of
backing our team whether it is win
ning or losing. Cheering them on
continually is really showing our
loyalty to the team. Catcalls for the
opposing team only show our poor
sportsmanship. Let us throughout
the basketball season show our team
that we are loyal to them whether
they win or lose.
Through the misty, swirling snow,
two figures, muffled and wrapped
to the "high" brows, struggled tow
ard an ultimate goal. Ho! One
falters and nearly falls. His com
rade takes his arm, and on again
they go, only to stumble and both
go down in a drifted pile of snow.
Can it be exhaustion from this su
preme effort? Nay, these "kids"
think they can play along on the
way to school and then use the deep
snow as an excuse to get out of
staying in an hour for being late. We
are rather dubious.
Now that vacation is over, stu
dents can settle down to prepare for
semester tests. Everyone will take
all of his semester exams this year.
This is somewhat of a blow to the
pride of those students who have
been proud of ! the fact they have
never taken a semester test because
of exemptions. However, we realize
that tests are being required of all
beginners in the important fields of
life's work and we should get our
preparation for and experience in
taking this type of examination in
Another valuable outcome of , these
examinations is the help in summing
up what we have gained from each
course during the year.
Some think of exams with dread
and trembling because of the fear
of failure. There should be no
grounds for this feeling if their daily
preparation has been satisfactory. If
their work merited exemption un
der the old plan they should cer
tainly be well prepared to pass these
Pep Club Holds Meeting
The Pep club held a meeting on
January 5th to draw the names of
three people to be taken in as mem
bers of their club. The three names
drawn Were Harriet Hager, Robert
Scrivner and Riley Munkers.
Very nice looking is she, this ju
nior girl who has a pretty head of
blond hair, blue eyes, and long
lashes. She likes all types of ac
tivities and may be seen at dances,
the theater, on the hill coasting,
bicycling, or hiking.
During the recent vacation she
could usually be found at the home
of a girl friend whose brother from
college was spending the holidays at
home. No matter where she is she
likes to joke and get into a little mis
chief. She always likes to have a
good time and is seldom sad. She
likes all types of people especially
red-heads. She is a very outstand
ing girl and naturally has many
Christmas Social Hour
As a last get-together before the
holidays, the high school student
body gave an inforrrial dance in the
school gymnasium Wednesday, De
cember 23. All members of the stu
dent body and the alumni of Hepp
ner were invited. About forty-five
The gym was decorated with
red and green streamers. There was
a small tree in each of the four cor
ners of the gym and a large tree in
the center. The floor was lighted
by spotlights at each end and two
floor lamps at the entrance.
The music was furnished by Mar-
jorie Parker and Miss Leathers at
at piano and Buddy Blakely -at the
drums. Refreshments were served
at eleven o'clock, after which time
everyone wished everyone else a
.merry Christmas and a happy new
year and departed.
Miss Katherine Mitchell, our com
mercial teacher, reports that she
had a very nice time during Christ
mas vacation. She flew by airplane
from Pendleton to Nyssa, her home
town, where she had an enjoyable
visit with her folks. The last three
days of vacation she spent in Pen
dleton. Mr. and Mrs. N. E. Peavy spent
the holidays in Corvallis at the home
of Mr. Peavy's parents. Mr. Peavy
reports they had a very enjoyable
time visiting with his family and
Miss Dorothy Peterson, our home
economics teacher, enjoyed a splen
did vacation in Los Angeles, visiting
her mother and sister.
Mr. Grimes visited his parents at
Harrisburg during the vacation. He
also attended the O. S. T. A. meeting
held at Portland and visited the
Smith-Hughes department at Scap
poose. Though he returned to Hepp
ner early, he had a very pleasant
Mr. and Mrs. Blankenship mo
tored to Centralia, Wash., to spend
Christmas eve with Mr. Blanken
ship's parents. On Christmas day
they went to Everett, Wash., and
visited Mrs. Blankenship's folks for
several days. They also spent sev
eral days visiting friends in Seattle.
After the O. S. T. A. meeting in Port
land they returned to Heppner,,
bringing with them Mr. Blanken
ship's sister who will spend some
time visiting here.
'Mr. and Mrs. Tetz spent a portion
of their vacation with Mrs. Tetz's
parents at Grass Valley. Later Mr.
Tetz attended the O. S. T. A. meet
ing in Portland. He reports the un
usual privilege of being present at
a free banquet there. They returned 1
to Heppner to celebrate the coming

To every grange lecturer and far
mers' union program committee in
the state has been mailed a copy of
one of these prepared programs,
which are designed to form the ba
sis of an evening's forum or discus

supplied by the extension service
are prepared in attractive mimeo
graphed form and contain basic facts
on the subject and many sugges

gram has been sent out to each or
ganization, any or all of the pro
gram outlines may be obtained free
of cost not only by granges and far
mers' unions but by any other group
or organization which desires to
make use of them, says Mr. Beck.
Five program outlines have been
prepared so far and others are in
the making. "Oregon in a Can" deals
with the rapidly expanding food

the highlights of Oregon's commer

"This Little Pig Went to Oregon"
deals with swine production and
marketing and shows that Oregon is
still importing pork products equal
to a grand total of 250,000 hogs an

Shoe" presents in an attractive man
ner the names and classifications of
the leading soil types found in Ore
gon and shows how these may be
used to local advantage. The first
of a marketing series deals with ex
ports and imports and presents facts
on both sides of the tariff question.
