Page Six Heppner Gazette Times, Heppner, Oregon Thursday, April 14, 1938 THE Hehisch Published by the Journalism Class of Heppner High School PINTO-POINTS Since local school athletic activ ities were practically at a stand still last week as a result of the va cation, a few ditties picked up while traveling here and there during the time off at the educational institu tion are forthcoming. Jack Morton, freshman enrollee at Newberg, who moved to that city from Heppner a short time ago, purchased himself an expensive pair of baseball shoes with the intention pf turning out for the Newberg school baseball nine, but three weeks have passed since he loosened up with the money for the cleated shoes and he has yet to report for prac tice . . . his periods will have to be changed before he can turn out, and he says he just hasn't had time to see about the alteration . . . Jack admits that it's doubtful if he' can keep in shape should he take up baseball ... his doubtfulness is based on the fact that the town of Newberg happens to be the home of a confectionery that slings to gether the best milk shake found anywhere ... a dose of syrup and milk, plus five scoops of ice cream, to start the drink on its way, and after thoroughly mixed, two more dippers are added ... by this time the glass is almost overflowingly filled . . . here is the odd part about .the concoction . . . the price is 10 cents. Bill Nelson, former grade school student, who now makes his home in The Dalles, is being groomed for a backfield position on the Indian gridiron eleven ... he has played in the line at the center spot for the last two years ... his ability to punt was the cause of Coach Beryl Hod gen's shifting him, but it seems doubtful, according to Dalles critics, whether his speed is sufficient to merit his holding down the quarter back place . . . spring practice is in full swing at The Dalles with Hod gen, who resigned as coach there but is finishing out the year, instructing the inland sea-port boys with the pet stuff that Mark Temple of Pen dleton will give them next fall when he takes over Hodgen's job . . . suc ceeding Temple at Pendleton is By ron Haines, a Bend product, who spotlighted himself with his spark ling play at University of Washing ton as all-coast halfback two years ago. Henry E. Tetz's Adams District 13 basketball champions picked some of the "bests and worsts" they ran up against in the season just passed ... an all-opponent first team in cluded H. Fox, Thurston; Wether ell, Arlington; Jones, Athena; Giesy, Amity, and Young, Condon . . . The second team, Arnold, Odell; Jenkins, Athena; Van Marter, Heppner; Stanley, Pilot Rock, and K. Fox, Thurston . . . game most wanted to win (in order named), Athena, Ar lington, Amity the preceding game order indicates that beating Athena and Arlington counted more to them than did winning from Amity at the state tournament best game played, Athena, Arlington . . . best man played against, Giesy, Amity Jones, Athena . . . Best referee, Piluso, Wienel and Heniges . . . best gym, Willamette at Salem, Pendleton Jr. High, and Heppner . . . poorest gym, Athena, Pilot Rock and Echo. "This is the doggondest club I've shot all year; if you miss one, you're lost," said Al Rhiel, professional trapshooter and gun and ammuni tion salesman for the Remington Arms company, who shot a 49 at the local shoot last Sunday after break ing 48 at the Pendleton shoot an hour or so previous to shooting here, making his total for the day 97 out of a possible 100 . . . Rhiel's mark for the day, however, was tied by one Heppner man and topped by two more . . . Phil Mahoney cracked a 97, Dr. McMurdo, the veteran sharp shooter, hit 98, and John Lane, the club's sharpshooter, broke 131 straight ... in reality his record was 125, but he took six shots with one of Rhiel's demonstration guns, which were added to the aforementioned total . . . added to this 131, the 42 that Lane broke the previous Sun day brings his total score to a con secutive 173 . . . if all of Heppner's sharpshooters, including Tom Clark, Charlie Latourell, L. Van Marter, Earl Warner, and others already mentioned, were hitting their stride, the Heppner club would be a tough one to beat. Heppner to Meet Condon This coming Friday at 3:15 the Heppner Mustangs will meet the veteran Condon Blue Devils at the Rodeo field in the first home game of the season. This should be a very close game with ' the hard-hitting, smooth-fielding Condon team ex changing blows with a powerful but rather erratic Hgpner nine. Arlington Takes Opener The Heppner Mustangs lost their opening baseball game by the close score of 10-7 against the Arlington Honkers at the river city Tuesday. Up to the fifth inning Heppner led the game and at that time the score was 6-1 in the Mustang's favor. But then the tide turned, and due to countless Heppner errors, Arlington pulled ahead 8-6 and in the follow ing inning netted their final two runs. Heppner got one in the first, five runs in the fourth inning, and the final run in the sixth inning, netted by Richard Hayes' home run. Drake pitched good ball during the first four innings, but due to fatigue and errors on the part of the field ers, Arlington was able to get their runs. Worden pitched in the sixth, striking out one batter and forcing the other to ground out to short stop. Wetherell for Arlington pitched good ball, with the exception of the fourth inning. H.H.S. In Past Years 1 Year Ago . . . Heppner returned home Tuesday with a 4 to 3 victory over the Arlington Honkers. It was the first game (technically speak ing) of the season, since we forfeited the Umatilla game because of the use of an ineligible player. 5 Years Ago . . . The afternoon of Good Friday will be a school holi day. The Monday following, there will be no school, because a teach ers' insttiute is being held at Lex ington. 10 Years Ago ... All ciics term papers were ordered to be handed in last Friday in rough form. Mr. Burgess preferred to present any corrections before they are typed and made into book form. H.H.S. Fifth Grade News The fifth grade is getting ready for the school Open House (April 22). The fifth grade had its regular meeting Monday. During our recent vacation. Mary Lou Ferguson motored to Eugene with the band students, and Betty Marie Coxen went to Echo. H.H.3. Seen Here and There at Eugene The boys in the Armstrong car slept four in a bed at a hotel in Portland. John Crawford wanted to stay in a sorority while at Eugene; at least he got to the front door. Arlene wanted to swim; but Van said she couldnt, because it was the men's tank. Cal Crawford was on time for the contest; there weren't any stopped clocks to watch. Kemp Dick found that he was $6.50 short after passing through the city limits of Cascade Locks at fifty miles per hour. H.H.S. Humor Our idea of a lazy man is one who sang "Moonbeam, Kiss Her For Me!" Jackson Gilliam: "I have an idea." Clayton Wright: "Beginner's luck." Howard Patton: "Why is the Na tional Biscuit Company financing an African expedition?" Margaret Browning: "They want to get some new designs for their animal crackers." Edna Hughes: "Can you imagine anything worse than a giraffe with a sore throat?" Delsie Mae: "Sure, a centipede with corns." "Have you got your notes written on your handkerchief?" "Yes" "And have you your textbook concealed in your hat?" "Yes" "And did you make arrangements to sit behind Fred where you could see his paper?" "Yes" "All right, let's go on to that civics final." Take a Scotch tip: Stay at home and let your mind wander. Mr. Bennett: "Floyd, can you tell me one of the uses of cow hide " Floyd W.: "E, yessir. It keeps the cows together." Mr. Knox: "If you substract four teen from a hundred and sixteen, what's the difference?" Guy Moore: "Yeah, I think it's a lot of foolishness, too." H.H.S. Gossip Fore-warned is fore-armed. Please don't ask Milton why he was wad ing in the mill race as it might prove embarrassing. They tell us Laura Warfield en joyed the trip to the Willamette Park. I bet you can't guess who she was with! Worry, worry, everybody wants to know why Irena was so excited Sunday. Of all the nicknames, Kemp Dick's is the best "Speed Demon Dick." We're wondering if Jack Merrill has caught up on his sleep yet. Evi dently Jack caught spring fever. CROP INSURANCE PLAN READY FOR OMAHA MEETING The wheat crop insurance program of the new AAA farm act will be officially launched at a national meeting to be held at Omaha April 19, which will be attended by state leaders in wheat growing states west of the Allegheny mountains. Secretary Wallace will address the gathering, and his speech will be carried that day over the National Farm and Home Hour, being heard on the west coast at 9:50 to 10:15 o'clock in the forenoon over the NBC Blue network. A general explanation of the crop insurance program will be made at the Omaha meeting. Those who will direct the program in the . various states will remain over for a second day, when a school of procedure will be held. A similar meeting for Oregon and Washington has been called for Pen dleton late in May, probably on May 17 and 18. Details of this meet ing will be announced later. Announcement is expected in the near future of hearings to be held on proposed establishment of mar keting agreements and orders for handling the 1938 potato crop. Agreements were maintained in cer tain late areas last year and were reported so successful that a recent conference of producers and officials in Washington recommended that they be extended to all major com mercial areas this year. Under the proposed plan, Malheur county, Ore., would be included in the Idaho and Utah potato regions. A new northwestern area would in clude all of Washington, the remain ing counties of Oregon, and Siskyiou and Modoc counties in northern California. Fair and reasonable wage rates to be paid sugar beet laborers, as one of the conditions of benefit payments to growers under the sugar act, have just been announced by the AAA. Oregon sugar beet sections have been grouped with those in Nebraska, Colorado, southern Wy oming, South Dakota, Utah and Ida ho in determining the rates to be paid. Linn to Have "Five Year Plan" Albany A "five year plan" for Linn county agriculture has been worked out as a result of the recent county economic outlook conference, reports County Agent F. C. Mullen. The program, to be backed by the extension service, calls for emphasis on seven definite major projects. These are dairy herd improvement, small seed improvement, strawberry production, pasture and hay im provement, sheep management and breeding, management of turkey breeding flocks, and weed control. The goal in club work will be im provement in all phases, with the 4-H program tied in with the county agent program wherever possible. Poisoning Said Best for Gophers Dallas For pocket gophers, which have begun their spring activity in clover and alfalfa fields, poisoning is usually considered more satisfac tory than trapping, says County Agent W. C. Leth. Poisoning takes less time, because if no new dam age is noticed it is unnecessary to go back to look at traps, and the over-head investment in traps can be saved. The poison recommended by the U. S. biological survey is powdered alkaloid strychnine, dust ed on fresh green clover leaves and set in the main runways. Alfalfa, potatoes, carrots or parsnips may be used if clover is not available. Evidence seems to show, however, that the gophers are easier to poison with the same food they have been feeding on regularly, Leth says.
