We Will Do It!
The annual Armistice Day football
game between Hermiston and Hepp
ner will be the crowning point of
Heppner high school's football sea
son. Though both schools have al
ways observed the codes of sports
manship, not mentioning the rather
unjustifiable action taken by Hepp
ner students last year, it should be
the hope of every student to main
tain these standards and try to make
Hermiston feel welcome as any good
host should do. This will be the only
way in which to compensate for the
unforgettable goalpost incident. It is
only once every year that we are
host to Hermiston, so let's not let
high-pitched rivalry overrun our
emotions to the extent of booing or
any other unsportsmanlike attitude.
Social Hour Wednesday
The social hour held last Wednes
day evening was well attended and
enjoyed by everyone. It was evident
that everybody enjoyed the music
for dancing, available through the
new sound system.
Eighth Grade News
The eighth grade has been busy
preparing reports on Oregon history
in accordance with their history les
sons. Some of the reports have al
ready been given, and the others are
expected to be in by Wednesday.
The reports so far have been very

Having been beaten at fooball, they

Health Class Experiment
An interesting experiment is be
ing performed by Mr. Knox con
cerning the junior and senior boys'
health class. The text book method
did not prove satisfactory to Mr.
. Knox, and he had the, boys write
questions concerning health. These
questions are discussed during the
health period. Only one class dis
cussion has been had of this type of
discussion, and it has proven very
interesting. Many questions which
have been bothering the boys have
been turned in to be discussed later.
F.F.A. Carnival Last Saturday
The F. F. A. held its carnival Sat
urday night and was very much
pleased with the results. This was
the first carnival to be held by the
organization, and though it was a
success, the next one will be bigger
and better. The high school would
like to see more of the grown-ups
of Heppner at these activities.
The F. F. A. wishes to thank the
stores and the towns-people- most
heartily for their donations to the

This year's traditional Armistice
Day football game between the war
ring gridiron representatives of
Heppner and Hermiston brings to
gether two teams whose fervent ri
valry reaches a higher degree with
each game played. The revenge
seeking Bulldogs, hailing from the
enterprising little city of Hermiston
that supports co-ops of all sizes,
shapes, and forms, have not emerged
victorious in these "peace-celebra
tion" games since 1934. That year,
with the game played in the back
vard of the Bulldog kennel, Hepp
ner's highly - touted power-house
team fell before the onslaught of a
snappy Hermiston outfit that con
sistently played heads-up football.
The following year, a green and in
experienced but unpredictable bunch
of Heppner boys played host to a
much heavier team from our neigh
boring Umatilla city, whom fans
picked as a decided favorite to cart
home the laurels of sweet victory.
But the grand game of football would
not be itself without claiming its
amazing yearly total of upsets, and
it remained for the Heppner Mus
tangs to 13 to 0 win over the visit
ing Hermiston gridders. The scene
of battle for the 1936 tilt switched to
the project town, and before a large
crowd, brimming with enthusiasm,
the Mustangs, then known as the
Fighting Irish, edged out a 7 to 6
victory. These games, played on a
yearly home-and-home basis, have
in past yeafs provided gridiron en
tertainment of the highest degree,
and Thursday's fray gives indications
of surpassing all previous meetings.
Hermiston possesses an enviable
late season record. Although losing
to Pasco, Mac-Hi, Kennewick, tying
Waitsburg and the Walla Walla B
squad, the Bulldogs held the strong
Pendleton Buckaroos to a single
touchdown, gaining victories over
Joseph and Arlington, the latter win
being the game on which compara
tive performances are being made
between Heppner and Hermiston,
The Mustangs progressed through
their current football season wtih
three straight victories, two over
Condon and one from Touchet, Wn.;
however, in the following game, the
locals ran up against Arlington, a
team that provided considerably
more opposition than they could harr
die, falling before the Honkers 5 raz
zle dazzle aerial circus 18 to 0. In
its most recent contest, which was
played last Friday at Fossil, the fa
vored Heppner outfit was held to a
to 6 tie by a much-improved
Wheeler county team.
Heppner's losing to Arlington, the
team which Hermiston defeated in a
hard-fought game, places the Bull
dogs as a favorite in the eyes of fans
who are betting their spare change
on the outcome of this forthcoming
fray between the bitterest of rivals.
The results of the Fossil game will
not bolster Heppner's claim to a pos
sible victory, but after such a hec
tic week in which a defeat and a
tie were the outcome, the Mus
tangs, playing on their own field,
which is always a distinct advantage,
are preparing to stampede for the
score that means the third straight
victory over Thursday's visitors. '
Curfew chatter . . . Hermiston has
the reputation of being able to dish
it out . . . from newspaper reports
of its game with Joseph, in which
Frank O'Neill's proteges were 19 to
0 victors, the Joseph coach with
drew his team from the field in the
third quarter . . . the reason given
for the forfeit was the hard-driving,
fast-stepping Bulldogs were too big
and tough. The humor editor of last
week's Hehisch was evidently lack
ing in his foundation on football re
sults ... it seems he was asking
why somebody didn't invent a team
that could beat Arlington . . . the
truth of it is thus far this season,
four squads have done so. The re
turn of Jackson Gilliam, Mustang
tackle, to the line up for the Her
miston meet, will bring Heppner's
varsity to full strength . . he has
not played in the last two games, as
business demanded his presence
elsewhere on the dates of the most
recent duo of meetings. Six certain
boys on the roster of the Hermiston
team constitute a total of three
names ... there being two Shipp
boys, a Moore duet, and the same
number of Rankins. According to
the Hermiston high school paper, La
Verne Van Marter has added consid
erable poundage to his frame since
last year's game ... that publica-1

To the Editor;
It has come to the attention of this
office that local people have occa
sionally purchased from members
of the C. C. C. camp, blankets, ar
ticles of clothing, cigarettes, and va
rious other articles.
This was undoubtedly done with
out thought being given to the source
from which the boys obtained these
articles, and the position in which
the purchaser was placing himself.
Therefore. I am taking this meth
od to warn all local citizens that all
equipment issued to the C. C. C. boys
is the property of the Federal Gov
ernment. Also, no issue of cigarettes
or other items is made to the boys.
Any article offered for sale by any
C. C. C. boy should be thoroughly
investigated as to his right to posses
sion, before a purchase is made. This,
of course, applies only to personal
property. As to military equipment,
including blankets and clothing, the
only assumption possible is that this
is Federal property, and anyone
purchasing or receiving such prop
erty is subject to prosecution in eith
er the local or Federal courts, at the
discretion of the camp authorities.
