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
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
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. An end run by Van

Marter and a lateral to Gilman lost
a yard. Van Marter again carried
the ball for 4 yards. 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

To Wheat League
Condon. 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
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
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.
A 4-H club meeting was held at
Mrs. C. N. Biddle's Friday evening at
7:30, W. F. Edmondson was elected
as club leader for the forthcoming
year. The following officers were
elected: Donald Campbell, president;
Irvin Rauch, vice-president; Leland
Edmondson, secretary; Jean Majes

news reporter. The next meeting is
