For School Census
An appeal for general cooperation
of all citizens of the county in tak
ing the annual school census was
made by Mrs. Lucy E. Rodgers,
county school superintendent, before
the Monday Lions luncheon. Mrs.
Rodgers called attention to the fact
that clerks of the various districts
would be taking the census shortly
and that it is to the advantage of
each district to have the census com
plete. All children between the ages
of 4 and 20 are eligible for registra
tion and the county and state school
money is apportioned among the dis
tricts according to the number of
Mrs. Rodgers also asked that peo
ple cooperate in listing children
handicapped by sight deficiency. The
state blind department has asked the
district clerks to assist in making a
complete record of blind cases in
the state, and those suffering from
defective sight to the extent of not
being able to distinguish the fin
gers of one hand when held at arms
length are to be listed as sightless.
A report of the annual school
masters convention which he attend
ed last week end at Salem was
given by Alden Blankenship, local
school superintendent. Of especial
public interest he believed were the
reports on curriculum changes and
experiments being made over the
state. Henry Tetz of Adams, former
principal here, was among those re
porting and the discussions he as
sisted in leading held the close at
tention of everyone, Blankenship
said. The trend noted in this work
is away from the old system of
awarding high school credits upon
a set number of subjects, and rather
arranging the curriculum into
broader fields to give a wider fun
damental scope of all fields of know
ledge. Mr. Blankenship saw the Oregon
Frosh- O. S. C. Rook football game
in Portland Saturday night, and re
ported that La Verne Van Marter,
former Heppner high star, went into
the game for the frosh in the sec
ond quarter and remained through
out the play, turning in a nice performance.
