Mustangs Emerge
Conference Champs
Before one of the largest crowds
of football fans assembled on the
local field this season, the Heppner
high school Mustangs threshed out
a 25 to 0 victory from the Arlington
Honkers Monday afternoon. Reso

fore him, received a long pass from

by Moore, swift-footed reserve 6
more points for the Mustangs. The

In the third period of play, Petty

the ball on Arlington's 3-yard line.

his text in delivering a highly ina

Battleships Become
Obsolete the Same
As Automobiles
That Uncle Sam's large battle
ships become obsolete almost as
fast as automobiles is the asser
tion of W. G. Luper," brother of
the late James N. Luper of this
city, who as machine maker and
draftsman at the Mare Island navy
yard for 41 years is in a position
to know. Mr. Luper, now retired
and residing at Vallejo, Cal., vis
ited here this week with his niece,
Mrs. Leta Babb, leaving Tuesday
morning to visit other relatives in
Washington. He expected to spend
three weeks at Grand Coulee,
viewing engineering marvels of
the big dam.
Substantiating his statement
about the battleships, Mr. Luper
said he assisted in construction of
the Montana, one of the large
super battleships Uncle Sam had
projected and which was aban
doned in 1925 following interna
tional peace treaties. About $3,
000,000 worth of armor plate and
a number of behemoth 16-inch
guns that were to have gone into
this greyhound now lie at Mare
Island as a sore thumb, entirely
worthless because of later im
provements. The armor plate and
guns were shipped to Mare Is
land from the east, and were un
loaded there by the largest un
loading crane west of the big east
ern steel works, Mr. Luper said.
Mr. Luper is especially inter
ested in Californias large red
wood trees. And just to prove
a long-standing interest he exhi
bits a picture of himself and wife
in the first atomobile ever to visit
the Giant forest in 1904, a Stanley
steamer resembling many of the
first horseless carriages. He has
just written a log of this trip for
publication in the Redwood Na
tional Park journal.
Condon Nosed Out
By Score of 7 to 0
In a hard fought football battle
climaxed by a forty-yard run to the
2-yard line by Morgan in the clos
ing minutes of the game, the Hepp
ner Mustangs defeated the Condon
Blue Devils by the score of 7 to 0 on
the Condon field Saturday after
Heppner received the opening
kick-off on their own twenty and by
six successive first downs advanced
the ball to the Condon ten-yard
stripe, where their offense bogged
down, and the ball, inches short of
a first down, went to Condon. They
immediately kicked out of danger
and then held Heppner on downs,
Condon soon recovered the ball on a
blocked kick on Heppner 30 and
marched down to the 10-yard line
where a desperate goal line defense
gave Heppner the ball. Neither team
threatened again that half.
In the third quarter Condon again
threatened by recovering a fumble
on the Heppner 10-yard line, but
failed to have quite enough punch to
For the rest of the game Heppner
kept threatening but was unable to
score until Morgan raced forty yards
on one of the two reverses tried
Two plays later Morgan crossed the
goal standing up on the other reverse
Heppner pulled. The extra point was
made on a pass from Morgan to Bar
The final whistle blew 3 minutes
later with Condon frantically trying
to make its passes click.
