Last Friday the anual initiation
was held at the school gymnasium,
members of the sophomore class be
ing the administrators. The fresh
men first gave the customary skits.
The sophomores then escorted them
down to the basement, where they
were blindfolded and ordered to put
on tennis shoes. Then they crawled
up the stairs on their knees, en
couraged by frequent spats. After
being forced to undergo various or
deals, they were given the oath of
allegiance by Paul McCarty, student
body president, following which the
seniors served refreshments.
Pep Club Holds Initiation
Did you hear a girl scream in the
Gilman apartments last Thursday
night? That was one of the five per
sons being initiated into the Pep
Club. These five members are Beth-
al Blake, Scott McMurdo, Buddy
Blakely. Paul Doolittle and Carolyn
Vaughn. All of them were baptised
in the spring at the rodeo grounds,
which was quite cool, and then they
were blindfolded. They were taken
to Miss Smith's home where they
finished the initiation with many
heart failing episodes, followed by
refreshments. They then returned
home as full pledged members of the
Pep club, to take part in increasing
the school spirit.

Due to the inability of Fossil to
conform to its schedule. Heppner's
first two games of the season are to
be played against Condon, with the
second game scheduled for tomorrow
afternoon on the tetter's home field.
After two weeks of practice with no
games in that length of time, the lo
cals will be at full strength for the
Gilliam county team. Condon's squad
was hit by injuries in the last fray
with Heppner, and barring such hap
penings in the coming tilt, they show
promise of making it a memorable
encounter. Good-luck omens seem
to favor Condon, as it is on the home
field, all injuries diminished to a mi
nority, and a defeat for which re
venge must be gained. The first
game of the season revealed a weak
defense on the part of the Mustangs,
and with this given an extra polish,
Heppner's forces will march into
battle fully equipped with" the ma
terials of gridiron warfare.
Lexington's christening of six
man football in Morrow county last
Friday demonstrated that it is the
ideal game for schools whose enroll
ment does not permit a standard
size squad. Although still in the de
veloping stage, it proved its worth
iness and displayed several possibil
ities of providing a capable substi
tute for the eleven-man game. Easily
the star of the game was Bob Camp
bell, Lexington power-boy. On the
morning of the game, an "uncalled
for" remark was made to one of the
Jackrabbit lineman concerning his
physical appearance ... it didn't
set exactly as planned, and when
game time rolled around, a slight
remembrance of this statement still
remained in his mind. As a result,
the line-play of this forward wall
member was not exactly topping
par. One noticeable feature of the
game was an intentional act of a
Lexington back-field man . . . car
rying the ball on an end-around, he
found himself practically running
into the arms of a tackier . . . in
stead of attempting to side-step his
opponent, he immediately increased
his speed and hurled himself into
the lone lad.
Goalpost shadows ... An out
standing line prospect for the Uni
versity of Oregon is Jim Stuart, 210
pound tackle from Hermiston ... in
high school while playing for the
Bulldogs, he also substituted as full
back . . . playing this position only
when Hermiston needed a last min
ute score to assure them of victory.
The Adams Warriors, under the
mentorship of Henry Tetz, ex
Heppner coach, defeated the Helix
Grizzlies 27 to 7, playing the game
minus the services of Bill Warren,
stellar halfback, who recently sus
tanied a broken collar-bone ... in
this game, a member of the Helix
team received a concussion, and was
unconscious for two days . . . the
Adams six-man football team was
recently viewed by newspaper read
ers of eastern Oregon, as their pic
ture was featured on the sport page
of one of last week's East Oregoriian
issues. An additional game has been
added to Heppner's "uncertain
schedule ... to be played here on
Qctober 15 with the gridiron repre
sentatives of Touchet, Wash.
Football fans who happened to
tune in on the Pacific University
University of Portland football game
last Saturday heard the name of Len
Gilman mentioned very frequently
. . . one time being the ball-carrier
who detained the progress of the
game because of the hard knock re
ceived by his tackier, removing some
wind from his opponent's sails . . .
in a resume of the game, the an
nouncer commended his passing
ability, citing his bullet-like passes.
Upper Classmen Victorious
The upper classmen proved them
selves the more aggressive in last
Friday's game, winning from the
lower classmen by a margin of 6-2.
Receiving the kickoff on their own
twenty-yard line the upper class
men ran the ball back about twenty
yards, but lost it on downs. Little
was done until the last half, when
the upper classmen tried to put the
ball out of dangerous territory. The
kick was blocked, but the ball was
recovered by an upper classman be
hind his goal line, the result being
a safety for the lower classmen.
As the upper classmen were mov
ing up the field, a pass was tossed
by Coxen to Kenny, who with ex
cellent blocking made a 50-yard run
for a touchdown. With but a minute
remaining in the game after the
score, the lower classmen attempted
in vain to push across the winning
