Basketball Team Puts on Show An assembly was held last Friday in the gym. The boys chorus sang three numbers, "Dinah," "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers," and "When My Dream Boat Comes Home." A novel feature of the program was a demonstration by Mr. Tetz and the basketball boys explaining some of the things about a basket ball game which usually puzzle the audience. Mr. Shuirman, a former coach, was present and was introduced to the assembly. The program concluded with a basketball game with the freshman and sophomore girls playing the ju niors and seniors. The freshmen and sophomores won by a score of 19-9. Teachers Attend Meeting. The North Central Oregon School master' club met at Irrigon Monday night. Mr. Buhman, Mr. Tetz and Mr. Blankenship attended from Heppner. A delicious steak dinner was enjoyed. The business meeting followed the dinner. Following this, the Irrigon school gave a short pro gram, which was followed by a bas ketball game between Irrigon and Echo town teams. All club mem bers were guests of the Irrigon town team for the game. The grade school teachers meeting was postponed un til Tuesday, because of conflict in dates with the schoolmaster meet ing. H.H.S. Did You Know That: In the year 2100 A. D. it is esti mated that in the United States the death' rate will equal the birth rate? Beauty preparations in Paraguay are restricted by the Bureau of Pub lic Health? Cream could be made from milk and butter? Some steel mills operate the year around without using a single ton of iron ore? r piece of nickel tubing has been produced of which it would take five miles to weigh one pound? Tin was one of the earliest metals known? Water will dissolve more substance than either acid or bases? H.H.3. Eighth Grade News The eighth grade team won both games with Arlington Friday. The first team won 21-10 and the second team 27-6. This class held a debate Monday. The question was: Resolved, That students should be required to have a high school education. The affir mative won. Debaters on the affir mative side were Jack Vaughn, Hugh Crawford and Frances Wilkinson. Those on the negative were Donald Bennett, Kathryn Thompson and Frances Cox. The judges were Pa tricia Dooley, Harry Q'Donnell and Alex Thompson. H.H.S. History Class Holds Discussion The panel discussion held in the American history class last Friday brought out quite a few points on the topic, "Have we adequate de fense?" A new light was thrown on the subject by comparing it with the old basketball adage, "The best defense is a good offense." It was discussed pro and con. The class discussion involved the reconstruc tion period and aftermath of the Civil war. This era was also com pared with the ' periods following previous and late wars. H.H.S. Our Ag Instructor Mr. Grimes, the Smith-Hughes instructor in Heppner high school, was born in Harrisburg, Oregon, where he resided with his parents while attending grade and high schools. Being one of the outstanding 4-H club boys in the United States, Mr. Grimes received a scholarship to Oregon State college upon his grad uation from high school. He attend ed Oregon State for four years, dur ing which time he was active as a member of the college dairy and of livestock judging teams. This is Mr. Grimes' first year of teaching and, likewise, is the initial year for Smith-Hughes work in this school. Both Mr. Grimes and the Smith-Hughes department have made many friends. H.H.S. HUMOR Riley Munkers (Coming out of the restaurant on a basketball trip) ; "Say, fellows, one of the eggs I had for din ner had a lady's name and address on it, and under that was 'please write'." Mr. Tetz: "Are you going to write to her?" Riley: "No. When I opened the egg, I decided she was a pretty old lady by this time." We are wondering which of her three boy friends Betty Bergevin will choose? Ruth Green: "What do you mean by saying our boys resemble kerosene lamps?" Fred Hoskins: "They generally smoke, frequently go out at night, and are often turned down." Which will Harriet Hager choose a blonde, brunette, or red head? Florence Becket: "Oh, Paul, is It really a diamond." Paul McCarty: "By gosh, if it isn't, I'm out four bits." Arlene Morton's Willow Creek Irish man seems to be stepping out on her. Watch out! Mr. Buhman (during band practice) : "Why don't you pause? Don't you see it is marked 'rest'?" Joe Aiken: "That's all right. I'm not tired." Margaret Browning (over the tele phone) : "I didn't mean to make you wait so long, but I was disconnected."' Francis: "There's a woman peddler at the door, Gerald." Gerald R.: "Chase him off. I don't want to buy any women." Orchestra Leader's Nightmare When my dream boat comes home. I'll have plenty of money and you. Then I'll sine you a thousand love songs when we are alone. The night is young, and you re so beautiiui, pretty baby. Please keep me in your dreams, because I can't lose that longing for you when I'm under your spell. You are so easy to love, and I can't help falling under your spen. we u stop at tne cnapel in the moonlight for sentimental reasons; then it is good night my love till we meet again. H.H.S. Brain Buster Answer to the last puzzle: He was only a baby worm and couldn't court! For several months a man had noticed a very well dressed but heavily veiled woman in a commut ers' train- After some hesitation he struck up an acquaintance with her and found her interesting, intelli gent, and cultured. After a short space of time, although he had never seen her face, he fell deeply in love with her and asked her to marry him. She told him he must first visit her at home. This he did that very night. When he arrived, he found that she was colored. This fact did not deter him, and he re fused to be put off. She demurred because of his family, but he assured her that his family would thorough ly approve. Why was he so sure that every thing was all right? -H.H.S. Ten Years Ago This Week On the first honor roll this six- weeks were the following: Marjorie Beamer, Katherine Bisbee and Orrin Bisbee. An art exhibit of more than one hundred and fifty of the Old Mas ters was opened Wednesday after noon. The paintings were loaned to the school by the Colonial Art com pany of Denver. Ten cents admis sion was charged for the exhibit. The Heppner basketball team fin ished their schedule last Friday night when the Lexington team defeated them by a score of 24-7. A typing contest is to be held at Pendleton March 26. Pupils chosen from this school are Marjorie Clark, Mary Ritchie, Orrin Bisbee and John Conder. Mr. Sigsbee was at the schoolhouse Thursday and Friday, taking indi vidual pictures of the seniors and group pictures of other classes and of organizations of the various branches of high school. The six-weeks' exams were given Thursday and Friday, but the grades were withheld until the debate teams have finished their schedule. PINTO-POINTS With the gathering of six bas ketball teams, representing three counties, Heppner and Lexington play the first game of the first round in the tournament starting tomorrow evening. In the second game, Con don takes on Fossil, and in the third, lone tackles Boardman. Only two teams will be eliminated in the first night's tilts, as the strongest loser of Friday's contests still figure in the running. Probing through past rec ords, Heppner, Condon, and Board man are favorites to emerge victor ious from Friday's round of play. In the semi-finals, the Mustangs fig ure to eliminate the Gilliam county ambassadors, and the Yellow Jackets to do the same to Friday's strongest loser, probably Fossil, although Lex ington's chance to pull an upset is opportune. Providing all competition is brushed aside Heppner and Board man are probably finalists, giving an edge to the Inglemen- This all figures out nicely on paper, but basketball games aren't won on the pulp product. There's always a chance for an upset, and the law of averages . . . well . . . The referee selected to work the games is the arbiter who was so popular among the tournament fans here two years ago Eddie McMurdo of Walla Walla. Off the backboard Hank Luisetti, star Stanford forward, has scored 652 points in three years of college competition. Mother, may we go swimming? Yes, my darling daughter. - Strut around, show off your clothes, But don't go near the water. Unless something is done in the near future about providing for a plunge, the situation will be worse than is denoted in the last verse. Took in The Dalles-Bend game at The Dalles last Friday night. It's possible but not very probable that Bend will get to the state tourna ment, but if they should,- the re sults will no doubt be the same as in '36. They got there and that was all. The Lava Bears had to take on the team that reached the semi-finals, the team that shellacked Hepp ner, Mac-Hi. Athena is the favorite to cop the tournament at Arlington. The Honkers are expecting Board- man to visit them next week Let's surprise them! H.H.S. Heppner Loses to Mac-Hi Mac-Hi scored an overwhelming victory over the Heppner team last Saturday at Milton-Freewater, scor ing 51 points to the Mustangs' 20. The Pioneers were sinking baskets from every angle and were practic ally unstoppable. The Mac-Hi squad took a commanding lead in the first half that put the game on ice.

Guess Who A little senior boy is he, And just as active as he can be. He's president of the H-Club and F. F. A. And an excellent sportsman in every way. He's very fast on the basketball floor, And usually helps to make the score. He's a good little fighter in every game, And though we're losing, he fights just the same. He's a swell kid with a lot of spunk, The kind that never says, "I'm sunk." Call him what you may But most of us just call him "Munk." AN UNUSUAL YEAR. This is the first year in their many years of operation on Sand Hollow that they will not be able to lamb on grass on the hills at Rose Lawn ranch, said David Hynd, secretary of Hynd Brothers company, when in the city Tuesday. They are moving all their sheep to the Cecil ranch for lambing operations which Mr. Hynd said would start March 10. The snow was off the hills on Sand Hoi low, though large drifts still remain ed in the canyons. Little evidence of run-off was shown. Grass ap pears to be about a month late in starting, but Mr. Hynd believed the range would be the best in years when it comes. To show that the ground is really moist, he cited the experience of his brother Will and one of the hands the other day. They started out across the hills in a pick up with supplies to assist in taking the sheep across to the Cecil ranch. They started early in the morning, returning late that night after hav ing spent most of the day digging the rig out of the mud. "JACKIE" SWEEK HURT. W. E. Moore was a business visitor in the city last Thursday from Pen dleton. He reported an unfortunate accident recently to Jackie Sweek who was hit by a car when riding his bicycle across a bridge in Pen dleton. The former Heppner boy, son of Judge and Mrs. C. L. Sweek, received quite painful injuries. The car did not stop to give assistance, and he was forced to lie for some time before he was found and given help. Professional Directory A. D. McMurdo, M. D.
