Grant Union's back - breaking
barnstorming schedule of five games
in as many days proved to be most
enlightening and again utterly dis
heartening, mostly the latter. News
of results of their fifth game has not
reached this vicinity as yet, but the
four remaining tilts are ones quite
familiar to this city's hoop follow
ers. The Prospectors won one game
and that was indeed an upset as well
as the game they lost to Heppner.
Pendleton opened the interior
squad's series of games with a rous
ing 28 to 11 defeat to place a most
gloomy outlook on the situation for
Grant Union; for if the Buckaroos
were typical of the opposition in this
secion of the country, it looked as
though the barnstormers were due
for a prolonged four-day headache.
The following night in what was,
without a doubt the best game seen
here in many years and undoubtedly
the top contest of the trip, Heppner's
revamped quintet, playing an en
tirely unfamiliar brand of basketball
with the thought in mind that only
one more playing day remained if
the locals were to annex a Christ
mas win, shot the par value of
Grant Union's heretofore favored
stock down to near rock bottom
as the Morrow county lads edged
out the visitors 34 to 32 in an over'
time game after the score had been
tied 30-all when the game ended.
Wednesday's game at Hermiston
was evidently the worst basketball
exhibition seen in that territory in
some time, as the Bulldogs won 13
to 12 via the extra period route in
a game described by the Hermiston
paper as one in which "a team com
posed of inmates of an old ladies'
home could have doubled the score
on either team." The score at the
end of the first quarter was Grant
Union 1, Hermiston 0, the half ended
Grant Union 4, Hermiston 0, and
the game, 10-all, which required the
added playing time. Traveling down
river, the Prospectors' next stop was
Arlington, the town sponsoring the
hoopsters the barnstormers defeated
in the consolation round of last
spring's district tournament. The trio
of games in three previous consecu
tive nights is enough to merit any
team's folding up and calling it a
day. What should Grant Union do
but knock over the Honkers by a
17 to 16 score. These jumbled scores
place the local casaba situation in
somewhat of a mess, as Heppner,
reputedly the stepping-stone team
of the league, beat Grant Union, the
squad that in turn nosed out Arling
ton, potentially one of the greatest
sets of hoopmen in this area. That
puts Heppner at the head of the
class, but whether the Mustangs will
stay is another question.
Basketball is just about over for
the current season at Ukiah, so
writes Bill Irwin, a former Ukiah
transfer in the local school who re
turned last spring to the latter city
and is now manager and also guard
for the cagers from the mountain.
No basketball is played in this sec
tor after the Christmas holidays due
to adverse weather conditions and
impassable roads, with the exception
of Long Creek and Pilot Rock which
are quite close when it comes to
counting mileposts. Teams played
are the two already mentioned,
Weston, Monument, Echo, Stanfield
and Irrigon. No member of the Ukiah
school faculty is acquainted with
the finer points of basketball, result
ing in the boys being placed on their
own hook as far as that sport is con
cerned. The hill-top basketeers do
their own coaching of the squad, of
whom the first five are juniors, and
the sixth and seventh men sopho
more and freshman respectively. Of
the 13 boys in school, 9 turn out for
In the Hepnper game with Lex
ington which was played at the
Jackrabbit city, the cash intake at
the door set a new record for that
high school. That high in gate re
ceipts can be attributed, in part, to
the fact that a good portion of the
Heppner student body was in at
tendance. The nearness of Lexing
ton to Heppner and keeping in mind
that this game is always a rough one,
thus giving fans of both schools a
chance to boo and cat-call the play
ers of the opposing team, perhaps
accounts for the large number of
Heppnerites present that evening in
the partially renovated Lexington
gymnasium. Paying a dime a throw
if accompanied by your student
body ticket and a quarter of a dol
lar if alone in that respect, the
money paid in by Mustang rooters
increased the host school's profits
Curfew chatter . . . Willie Mc-
Roberts, leading scorer in the eight
team county league of which his
CCC team of Baker is a member, is
coach of that contingent, as the cap
tain who was originally their basket
ball tutor, rarely if ever shows up
when it comes time to practice. . . .
Heppner's mit team lost a classy
boxer when Jack Healy's physician
advised him to lay off ring encount
ers .. . his nose, which had previous
ly been broken, received several
smashing blows in a recent bout and
examination revealed that another
blow of the same nature would cause
him undue trouble for his remaining
years. The school at Ukiah is one
learning establishment that empha
sizes intramural athletics . . . com
pleted late this summer, the new
gymnasium must be used almost en
tirely for intramural sports . . . foot
ball cannot be played in the gym,
basketball can be practiced for only
approximately six weeks in the fall
and winter, indoor baseball cannot be
stressed very extensively in an en
closure, and but few track events
can be run off on a basketball court
. . . another oddity, after building
the spanking new gym, the school
district failed to hire a basketball
coach, leaving that problem to the
Food Cereal Pointers
Given by Specialist
Cereal grains and products made
from them are high in energy value
anl certain vitamins and minerals,
unless much of their food value is
"manufactured" out of them, says
Miss Lucy A. Case, extension spec
ialist in nutrition at Oregon State
The germ of cereals, highly valu
able for its vitamin content, is often
removed by the maufacturers be
cause it contains oil and is subject to
rancidity. Manufacturers of wheat
products are allowed to remove the
germ and still label their products
"whole wheat," Miss Case says. Be
cause real whole grain cereals from
which the germ has not been remov
ed do deteriorate rapidly, however,
it is best to buy these only in small
quantities, she says.
"In making many cereals, part or
all of the bran coat is removed, thus
lowering the mineral and roughage
content," says Miss Case. "Cereals
from which most of the coat and
gerem have been removed are called
'refined cereals.' Cereals from which
only a part or none of the coat and
germ have been removed are com
monly called 'whole grain' cereals.
As with other manufactured goods,
it is difficult to ascertain the real
facts concerning the food content of
any particular manufactured prod
uct." Such cereals as rolled oats, corn
meal and cracked wheat can be pur
chased in large quantities in cloth
sacks at a considerable saving, if
dry storage, free from dust, can be
provided for them. It is necessary,
however, for the buyer to be on
guard against off-flavors in foods
in cloth bags.
Ready-to-serve cereals save the
homemaker's time, but cereals cook
ed at home are cheaper, often costing
only one-tenth as much, Miss Case
says. If well-cooked for an adequate
time, cooked cereal is as wholesome
and usually as delicious as the ready
to serve kind and has the advantage
of being a warm food.
Mimeographed leaflets giving fur
ther details on buying cereals, as
well as sugars, may be obtained from
county extension offices or from the
college. The number is HE 1122.
