Six Weeks Tests Coming
The most helpful advice about
cramming is "don't." True, you can
neatly arrange all , the . facts you
think you will need and can give
the right answers to most test ques
tions if you cram hard enough just
before an examination. This plan is
all right if your chief aim in the
course is to "squeeze through"; but
if you want to gain knowledge, give
up the plan of cramming. Learning
is a day-by-day process, and infor
mation should be gained in such a
manner that you can draw upon 'it
when it is needed.
By taking the same tests three
weeks later, prove to yourself that
cramming is really, injurious. You
will be amazed to find that you do
not know what seemed to have been
at your finger tips in the first test;
you have quickly lost what you
gained in such a superficial way. If
you expect to link up what you learn
to a real situation, it is worth your
while to gain knowledge in an or
County Sheriff Armistice Speaker
The students of Heppner high
school had the privilege of hearing
C. J. D. Bauman give an interesting
speech last Thursday afternoon. Mr.
Bauman, who is sheriff of Morrow
county, represented the : Heppner
Post of the American Legion.
He started his talk by commend
ing the students on , their school.
This commendation was based on the
following three facts: that Heppner
has the state championship band,
that Heppner has won the Upper Co
lumbia Athletic r League football
championship, and that no serious
Hallowe'en pranks were "pulled"
The main" point of his speech was
that the United States has gone
twenty years without realizing the
fact that the last war didn't .make
the , world safe for demorcacy, and
that the United States, after the last
war scare, is realizing the necessity
of rearming and having a navy sec
ond to none.
The large amount of applause
given Mr. Bauman when he had
finished his , talk and the silence
during the talk showed how much
the students appreciated the speech.
After the speech, a pep assembly
was held for the Hermiston game.
GAS HOUSE GOSSIP
By JOE AIKEN
To the annals of Heppner High
history we add another page with
. this year's football season. Its head
lights read something like this: In
the first game of the season, Hepp
ner swamped Fossil, 32 to 0. Fos
sil never had the ball past Hepp
ner's thirty-yard line. In other words,
Heppner won by an easy margin.
Heppner took Joseph, 13 to 6. Hepp
ner played the hardest game thus
far in the season upon their home
field when they met Joseph, the lads
from Wallowa Lake. The game
proved to be what we call a spec
tators' game, as it was full of pass
ing, tricks, and fluke plays. Joseph
made their bid early in the first
quarter with a pass and thirty-yard
run for a touchdown. In the second
half, Heppner came back with dou
ble strength to score two touch
downs and one conversion, making a
total score of 13 to 6 in favor of the
locals. . .
Heppner met defeat at Arlington.
Arlington shattered hopes of what
appeared to be an undefeated sea
son, the Mustangs playing the worst
ball game of the year. Comparative
scores indicated that Heppner was
figured to have an advantage of
about 30 points, plus , their weight
and experience. The score was 6 to
0 in Arlington's favor. Heppner beat
Condon. The Mustang rlads, strong
for revenge, defeated Condon 25 to
0, in the easiest game of the sea
son. ; , :
Heppner defeated Touchet. The
locals played the best ball this year
when they met Touhcet on the local
field, defeating them 50 to 0. This
game was much harder than the
score indicated, as the Touchet lads
were the gamest that have ever
played upon this football field. Con
don held Heppner to 7 points. The
Mustangs played a greatly improved
team over the one they defeated
two weeks before. The Condon lads
really put up a fight, which started
with the first quarter and lasted
up until the gun boomed to end the
Heppner got their revenge upon
Arlington by a 25 to 0 score. Ar
lington used an eight-man line
against Heppner, hoping to stop the
line plays, but Heppner, which was
figured to use a pass every thirteen
plays, opened up with an effective
aerial attack that did much to win
the game. , : .
Heppner defeated Hermiston, 6 to
0. Hermiston blames a bad pass from
center as the cause of defeat, but
in my opinion, it was a matter of
power and experience against Her
miston's spirit, which really is to be
commented upon. Heppner's touch
down came in the last quarter with
a power play off tackle.
Heppner closed their season with
a total of 158 points as against 12
points for the opponents. There has
been some chatter around the halls
that we may play a post-season
game. Due to a sudden change in
weather, however, this is hardly pos
sible, but if it does happen; that is,
if a game is signed up, it probably
will be some , school in the Blue
Mountain league, or a Willamette
valley school, Lebanon, which has
gone undefeated for two seasons, up
until Armistice day, when Wood
burn defeated them, 12 to 6.
The team as a whole is said to
have no star, but I think that there
are a few individuals who deserve
recognition. These boys played
steady ball, not necessarily all the
quarters, but while they were in the
game, they played hard and gave it
all they had. These fellows are as
follows: John Crawford, center; Lee
Pettyjohn, fullback; Howard Pat
ton, guard, and Emery Coxen, cap
tain. All the other lads deserve com
mendation, as it took all of them to
make the record what it is.

Instead of going by the text, Mr.
Knox is discussing questions handed
in by the students. . . . The F. F. A.
held a carnival last Saturday night.
What Were Your Thoughts?
What were your thoughts on Ar
mistice Day? Did you think of the
dance you were going to attend, the
show, the football game, parties, etc.,
or did you think of the rejoicing of
people all over the world about
twenty years ago? - ,
Did you think of the lives that
had been lost so as to help save our
country, and to make it a better
place in which to live, how some
families were again together, and
how some of the loved ones were
gone. If you didn't, do you think you
would be classed as a good citizen?
When the next Armistice Day comes,
keep the above in mind.
