PAGE EIGHT Mustangs Upset Dope to Tie in Traditional Game Hermiston Scores First in Armistice Day Feature In spite of rain which fell right up to time of the traditional Heppner Hermiston high school football game last Thursday, a large crowd as sembled here to enjoy the game and participate in other events of Ar mistice day. The scheduled ex- serviec men's parade was called off on account of the rain, but the game's start saw the large grand stand at Rodeo field filled almost to capacity, and cessation of the rain during the game added to its enjoy ability. A large section of Hermis ton high rooters, and other visiting team backers helped swell the crowd. Dinner for ex-service men and ladies, sponsored by the local American Legion post, was well at tended at the Elkhorn restaurant, and a dance at the Elks hall, also sponsored by the legion, successfully climaxed the day. Here is the He' hisch reporter's version of the big game: Playing their tenth annual Ar mistice day football game, the light er but higher spirited Heppner team provided one of the biggest upsets of the season with a powerful last quarter drive that resulted in a tie game against Hermiston, 6 to 6. Rated by local dopesters as a pre game favorite, the Hermiston squad played a defensive game for the most part. The backs of the Bull dogs were often shadowed by their own goal posts as Van Martens good kicking consistently sent the ball out of "coffin corner." Led by La Verne Van Marter, captain and 190-pound red-headed halfback, the Mustangs, whose two previous games spelled omens of a coming slump, played with inspired enthusiasm, climaxing their last gridiron contest of the year with a 42 yard drive that sent sky-high all hopes of a supposedly in-the-bag Hermiston victory. Seeking revenge for a similar in cident by local alumni and students at Hermiston last year, members of the Bulldog team and a small group of ardent supporters tore down both sets of goal posts on the playing field. Hermiston scored first with a sin gle touchdown in the dying minutes of the second quarter. Starting from their own 20-yard line, they rapidly advanced to Heppner's 47 yard marker, where Stuart Rankin, captain and left half of the visiting team, slipped over center for two yards, and on the next play made 9 yards and a first down. A pass net ted 21 yards and another first down. Buell, Bulldog fullback, . was stop ped at the line of scrimmage on the following line plunge. Rankin again carried the leather oval for a 4 yard gain, but an offside penalty against Hermiston moved the ball back 5 yards to the 16-yard stripe. Another pass totaled 12 yards. Rankin on a line smash, moved the ball 3 yards for a first down on Heppner's one yard line. It took just one play to push over a touchdown, with Ran kin, workhorse of the Hermiston eleven, again hitting the center of the line for the Bulldog's single tally. A fake kick and pass on the at tempted conversion fell incomplete in the end zone. Score: Hermiston 6, Heppner 0. Realizing that a dearth of time was rapidly tiding away the minutes in which a score, although improb able was still a possibility, the Mus tang's "thundering herd" took ad vantage of the fact that the Hermis ton line was beginning to weaken under the pressure of Heppner's plunging ball carriers. Taking a Bulldog punt on Hermiston's 42-yd. line, an attempted pass to Van Mar ter dropped out of the receivers hands, but a line plunge by Van Marter netted 9 yards. Gilman, Mustang fullback, on an off-tackle play made 3 yards and a first down. A penalty against Hermiston for slugging moved the ball 10 yards to the20-yard line.

Another penalty inflicted on Hermiston for 5 yards placed the ball on , Hermiston's 12 'yard marker. A sweeping run around left end by Van Marter, which had been so effective most of the afternoon, gave Heppner the score that meant at least a tie, and possibly a victory, but the try for point from placement went wide of the goal posts. Score: Heppner 6, Hermiston 6. Returning Heppner's kick-off 13 yards to its own 38-yard line, Her miston vainly trying to pass their way to a second touchdown, opened up with an aerial barrage. One pass was complete for 17 yards, but three more gained but 4 yards, and they were forced to punt. The game ended with the ball in possession of Heppner. Six seniors, five of them linemen, played their last game for Heppner high school. Composed of veterans, these half dozen boys formed the nucleus of this year's rather up and down team. They are Emmett Ken ny, end; Vernon Knowles, guard; Jackson Gilliam, tackle; Johnny Hays, end; Bill Browning, guard, and La Verne Van Marter, rgiht half back.

Delegations of wheat growers from Idaho and Washington are planning to attend the annual meeting of the Eastern Oregon Wheat league at La Grande, Decem ber 3 and 4, announces C. A. Nish, league president. While no similar organizations exist in these states, growers there feel that the problems of wheat growers in the three north west states are identical, and they are interested in the operations of the Oregon league. One of the principal subjects listed for discussions at this annual meet ing is the best use of land and its effect upon production costs, Presi dent Nish announces. Although this problem has been considered at many former league conventions, because of the provisions of the 1938 agricultural conservation program and the results of a recent study of the factors entering into the cost of wheat production in the Columbia basin, conducted cooperatively by Oregon State college and the U. S. department of agriculture, there is renewed interest in the subject, he says. The weed and seed laws will come in for further consideration this year, with discussions of the opera tion of the new state laws and what can be accomplished under them. Representatives of the agricultural committee of the Portland chamber of commerce will be present to dis cuss phases of relationships between agriculture and industry, and the labor situation and its effect upon movement of Pacific northwest wheats into interstate and foreign commerce. The possibilities of re duced costs of transportation and power for farms in the mid-Columbia area as a result of the Bonne ville dam, is another feature of the program. George E. Farrell, director of the western division of the AAA, will be present to talk about a proposed ag ricultural adjustment program for the Pacific northwest. County and executive committees of the league will convene in La Grande December 2 to correlate their data and formulate reports for pres entation to the convention.
