End Successful Season
The Heppner high school Mus
tangs climaxed a successful gridiron
season last Thursday when they
battled the biting Bulldogs of Her
miston to a sensational 6 to 6 tie.
Coach Knox started the season
with a squad composed of many in
experienced lads; however the boys
showed much promise in the first
game when they outfought the Blue
Devils from Condon and won 13-0
on the home field. In the return
game with the Condon eleven, the
galloping Mustang squad, piloted by
Van Marter, again tasted the fruits
of victory by way of a 19-6 trounc
ing. The squad continued to gain
momentum and overpowered the
Touchet boys from the Evergreen
state for the third straight win, 25-6.
Following this game the team
members experienced a severe men
tal letdown and fell before the baf
fling aerial stylists of Arlington to
the tune of 18-0. One week later the
team journeyed to Fossil and barely
managed to pull out a tie game. In
the final and biggest game the Hepp
ner boys made a grand comeback
and showed true football form by
completely outplaying the heavily
favored Bulldog squad of Hermis
ton. This contest brought the cur
tain down on a very succssful sea
son of three victories, one defeat,
and two ties.
"It Can Be Done"
Congratulations, Heppner High.
Such support and enthusiasm as evi
denced at last Thursday's game and
events leading up to it can be a de
ciding factor in the team's success.
With the odds greatly against them
the team proved to the satisfaction
of everyone that it can be done.
Though the score may have been a
tie, a victory might be chalked up
to the credit of the student body in
its observance ' of the ideals of
sportsmanship. It should always be
the object of the students to give the
opponents a square deal at all times,
never allowing the desire for vic
tory to. overcome good sportsman
ship. This was continually consid
ered during the course of the game.
Though there were one or two try
ing circumstances, the enemy was
always regarded as equal.
May we thank all those who have
helped to make this football season
a success for good old Heppner High,
and let's help make the coming bas
ketball season as successful.
Despite the stormy weather, one
of the most successful rallies of the
year was held last Wednesday eve
ning. Students met in front of the
postoffice and serpentined to the
bank comer; here group yelling was
held for about ten minutes. Follow
ing this, everyone went to the Star
theater where the coach and team
were introduced and where com
munity singing of college football
songs was held.

With the tenth annual Armistice
day football game between Heppner
and Hermiston, the 1937 football sea
son became a thing of the past. It is
now merely memories, perhaps soon
to be forgotten, and then again, re
vived and remembered as incidents
that recall this unforgettable season
of outstanding gridiron contests.
Last Thursday's battle with the Bull
dogs from Hermiston will probably
remain fresh in the minds of local
sportsters for many seasons to come.
Hermiston, the team with the im
pressive record against such stiff
competition as Pasco, Kennewick,
and Arlington, the squad that held
the Blue Mountain league co-leader,
Pendleton, to a single touchdown,
the eleven that defeated Arlington
who later trounced Heppner 18
points, the team rated as a definite
favorite to knock over Heppner the
team that played Heppner to a 6 to
Curfew chatter . . . During the
summer months before entering the
teaching field, William Bennett, vet
eran football time-keeper and local
Smith-Hughes instructor, was an
ice cream manufacturer; and when
winter time slackened that business
considerably, he worked in a fac
tory which produced an article used
daily by all of us, a product gener
ally considered essential to our good
health, commonly known as a mat
tress. Professor "Pigskin" Peavy, re
cently discovered wizard of predict
ing scores of future games and com
petitor of the Williamson system,
with the exception of one item, made
a direct hit on the results of the
Hermiston game ... he predicted a
tie game, but his generosity with the
touchdowns exceeded the true re
sults by seven points, figuring the
game to be a thirteen-all proposition.
Larry McKenzie, energetic grade
school physical education instructor,
is daily tutoring his enthusiastic
proteges on the fundamentals of
basketball . . . during the course of
the daily practices the workout given
and received by himself is much
tougher than that taken by his pu
pils. This writer and several stu
dents of the same school are won
dering as to the why and wherefore
of that little beard adorning the up
per lip of several members of the
Fossil team ... some radicals term
each a mustache, but as these spok-en-of
bristles were barely discern
ible in the board daylight, localites
are at a loss for a proper term to
attach to these slightly hair-covered
sections covering the top story of
the mouth . . . the Condon boys
have adopted an idea similar to that
of the Fossil group, but have de
veloped it on a larger scale, cover
ing their entire face, and calling it
a beard . . . however, they have a
definite reason . . . the cultivation of
said beards was started over a month
before their Armistice Day game
with Arlington, and, to quote the
Arlington Bulletin, "will never shave
them off until they step on Arling
ton's neck" . . . Condon, by the way,
lost that game, 20 to 6, and another
year will have elapsed before the
two teams again meet on the grid
iron ... a beard 365 days old will
become terribly monotonous and
bothersome, in more ways than one.
Next week . . . reviving remnants of
recent rovings over gridiron realms!
If a dog started after a rabbit when
he was 50 feet behind the animal,
and covered half the distance to the
rabbit every leap after the first leap,
how long would it be before he
caught the habbit? Answer to last
week's Cranium Breaker: The em
ployer read "sewed" and thus knew
the crop would be weeds.
