Home Economic Club Meets
On Thusday, October 6, the Home
Economics club held their first meet
ing of the year. It was held for the
purpose of reorganizing, electing of
ficers, and discussing the activities
to be carried out during the year.'
The officers elected were as fol
lows: President, Helen Egan; vice'
president, Dorothy Howell; secre'
tary-treasurer, Edna Stephens.
It was decided that a candy sale
be held at the Heppner-Condon
game on Oct. 15. An advertising
committee was appointed to give
publicity to the activities undertaken
by the club. This consisted of Lor
raine Both well and Isabel McFerrin.
Another suggestion was made that
a fancy work sale be held some time
before Christmas. All of the girls
are to bring some article which they
have made and wish to donate to the
club. All of the business at hand
taken care of, the meeting was ad
journed. Boardman Principal Lost
The most interesting faculty news
this week seems to be the hunting
trip' of Mr. Bennett, Mr. Sullivan
and Mr. Corwin.
They were hunting deer at Pota
mus and camping at Hunter's camp.
They went out hunting Saturday
morning and Mr. Corwin, prin
cipal of the Boardman high school,
became lost. Although they hunted
the rest of the day for him, when
night came they still had found no
trace of him. Mr. Bennett and Mr.
Sullivan searched in the woods with
a flashlight for him until late Sat
urday night, but were unable to
find him. Sunday morning Mr. Ben
nett got the CCC boys to search
along the rims for him where they
feared he had fallen and injured
He returned to camp about five
o'clock Sunday afternoon, after be
ing put on the right trail by Dr.

GAS HOUSE GOSSIP
By JOE AIKEN
Many people wonder what hap
pened to the local boys when they
journeyed to Arlington and lost to
the latter. Over-confidence and
sand field did as much to lose the
game as any other factor.
The Honkers ran the ball down to
the four-yard line, after gaining the
ball following a poor kick by Hepp'
ner, and completing a long pass, as
Gazette Times, Heppner,
the whistle blew to end the initial
quarter. The Honkers scored upon
the fourth down but failed to make
the conversion. That was the last
time that Arlington pushed the pig
skin past the Heppner forty-yard
line. After the score, the Honkers
went on the defensive, punting on
the second down and taking no
chances. The Mustangs marched
down to the river lads' ten and four,
respectively, but failed to score.
The boys, along with plenty of
townspeople support, demanded an
other game with the Arlington lads.
This game has been made possible,
and will be played Monday, Oct 31.
This date was named at Arlington's
convenience, with Heppner having
the option to take it or leave it. The
local lads have a game with Condon
Friday, Oct. 28, at Condon. The boys
will have two days' rest until they
meet the Honkers on the local field.
In regard to the grade school six
man team, they will definitely play
today at Heppner. A probable start
ing line-up for the Colts will be the
following: Quarterback, Barratt;
fullback, Kenny; the powerhouse
halfback, Batty; center, Cohn; left
end, Schunk; right end, O'Donnell.
This will be the first official six-
man game held at Heppner, and
promises to be a good, hard and fast
The "So and So" gym classes held
an unofficial six-man game. As a
result the boys have been nursing
sore and stiff muscles for the past
week. This was between the Green
way Panthers, managed by Floyd
Williams, and the Detroit Tigers,
managed by Omer McCaleb. The
victors were the Detroit Tigers, by
a score of 6 to 0. Johnston proved
to be the benefactor, by intercept
ing a pass and running it over for
the only touchdown of the game.
A suggestion has been made that
a more orderly conduct be prac
ticed at rallies, and that the par
ticipants must stop immediately af
ter the activity has been disbanded.
The original object of a rally is
to promote a more universal support
toward student activities, but it
seems to have failed in its method,
and the purpose defeated. The stu
dents realize their error and steps
will be taken to correct it but lack
of support still prevails.
Here and Yonder
Before the pigskin season is over,
Jack Merrill should look the part of
a wrestler. He has a new cauli
flower ear to start with.
LaVerne Van Marter, Jr., is a
promising candidate for the Uni
versity of Oregon Frosh team. He
stated that competition is keen, as
there are 28 men out for backfield
Bowman, who was supposed to
have appendicitis, recovered very
rapidly, and proved to be a great
factor in Arlington's victory last
Now that tennis season is over
and the weather isn't in the frame
of mind it was this summer, the sug
gestion has been made that some one
take it upon himself to take in the
other tennis net. The courts have
done much to provide activity and
enjoyment among the townspeople
Another Heppner athlete to break
into the spotlight again is Len Gil'
man, who was a big threat last Sat
urday. This is Len's second year at
Pacific university, and one of his
biggest. While Len is bagging the
pigskin for P. U., his younger broth
er is lugging it for Heppner now.

Potato Tags to Guide
Users of Oregon Spuds
Oregon potato growers are not
going to sit idly by and see potatoes
from other states' crowd the home
product off the Portland market, says
E. R. Jackman, extension crops
specialist at OSC.
The latest move to hold the favor
of Oregon consumers is a decision
of central Oregon growers to tag
Deschutes gems with a distinctive
advertising card. These cards will
be used only on highest quality po
tatoes, and will be made available
only to reputable growers, says
The growers believe the tag idea
will aid consumers by insuring them
a high quality product.
