Mails With Coin
By MARGARET BLAKE
One day last summer a transient
visitor in lone insisted on mailing a
silver dollar, to his sister in Indiana,
"just to see if she will ever get it."
Contrary-to the advice of the post
master, Mrs. Ruby Roberts, he pre
pared it for mailing by pasting a
piece of paper (just the size of the
dollar and addressed to his sister)
on one side and the necessary post
age on the other. A few days ago
Mrs. Roberts received a card from
the sender that his sister had re
ceived the dollar, so perhaps he is
now convinced of the honesty of
Uncle Sam's mail messengers.

Sink Toucher, 50-0
The Heppner high school football
machine started clicking last Friday
when an inspired Mustang rolled up
a score of fifty points to Touchet's
Gilman, Merrill and Moore were
outstanding with their long gains on
off-tackle plays and end runs; while
the bullbacks, Hayes and Pettyjohn,
showed their ability to gain through
the middle of the line when a few
yards meant a first down.
Both teams went scoreless the first
period, but Heppner started the sec
ond with a touchdown on a line
plunge by Pettyjohn. A little later
Drake scored on a long pass from
Morgan. Coxen kicked the point.
Later in the same period, Gilman

another tally. Just before the half-
time whistle, Pettyjohn ran a pass
interception back for the final
touchdown of the first half.
