Lef s Talk It Up
Perhaps you have wondered why
the lights have been on in the gym
until all hours of the night in the
past few weeks or what those no
tices on the blackboards and bul
letin boards have meant? Well, at
last the truth is out: the time for the
annual operetta has come.
Friday, the sixteenth of December,
some of the more enterprising stu
dents of Heppner high school are
presenting the comic operetta, "Ask
the Professor." These students have
gone to a lot of work, and from all
appearances their work is bearing
very fruitful results.
Now, here's where the rest of us
come in. Let's make the operetta a
financial success as well as an ar
tistic one. Many have been put on
before very small crowds. We can't
expect the townspeople to patronize
our performances unless we let them
know there is going to be one.
Next time you buy a milk shake
or a pair of socks, ask the person
who waits on you if he or she plans
on attending the operetta and give
some idea of what excellent enter
tainment it will be. If all the stu
dents do this from now until the
sixteenth, the gym will be packed.
So students, back your own per
' formances and let's make "Ask the
Professor" the biggest hit that ever
hit Heppner. We, the students of
H. H. S., are the ones who benefit if
the operetta is a success, so, for
gosh sakes, talk it up.

Four nominees for this honor were

her expected career upon gradua
tion. Mrs. Lucy Rodgers also gave the
girls a very interesting talk on

GAS HOUSE GOSSIP
By JOE AIKEN
Loaded with all the Thanksgiving
goodies, the local ball hawkers re
turned to regular practice upon the
Unofficial practices were held Fri
day and Saturday, supervised by
Coach McKenzie. The fundamentals
have been practiced, and a system
is being worked upon. The lads back
from last year find it almost like
taking up where we left off last
year; but for the new lads, it is a
bit confusing, although they are
coming along fast.
The F. F. A. chapter is to sponsor
another smoker this year. It will be
between Condon and the local chap
ter, held at Condon. The lads have
been practicing throwing the leath
er for better than two weeks. The
leading boys who intend to enter
are John Lane, Dean Gilman, Don
Bennett, Floyd Williams and How
ard Patton. Howard is suffering
from a broken hand received from
boxing at the beginning of school.
Last year the chapter entered in
four smokers and lost one. They had
two with Condon and two with
Boardman. They were - beaten by
Boardman in the last engagement.
A basketball schedule has been
made, consisting mainly of the
schools which have appeared here
in the past year.
Schedule: Dec. 5, fone here; 9,
Fossil here; 17, Hermiston there.
Ja. 7,' Arlington there, 9, Lexington
here; 14, Fossil there; 20, Hermiston
here; 28, Condon there. Feb. 3, Ar
lington here; 7, lxington there; 10,

key man. He accounted for twelve
Mr. Peavy, local English teacher,
spent the holiday in the gym shoot
Dick Bogoger spent the holidays
in Portland with his parents.
The goal posts still remain upon
the local gridiron. They should be
put away for the winter, as these
posts cost money, and if they are

for the student body.

ams, Betty Happold, Bob Scrivner,
Mr. Peavy, John and Calvin Craw
ford were among those attending
the Oregon-Oregon State game in

Hither and Thither
At least Thomas and Kemp have
one consolation they have Dorothy
to themselves during band period.
Annie has changed her mind
again. How about it, Clayton?
Can't you just picture some of
our high school boys moving wood
from in front of the restaurant
door? Beware of night cops, boys.
The redheads are at it again. At
least, Kathryn Thompson and Doug
las Drake are hitting it off pretty
It's humored that Emery has a
very special date with Bethal for
the Firemen's ball.
Grandpa Stone seems to have a
very special weakness for redheads
now. Don Evans must have lost his
Betty Robinson took Harry C
Donnell to the dance Wednesday
night, (or vice versa).
The axiom, "old flames never die,"
proved to be founded on facts, judg
ing by the way some sophomore
boys came down with extreme fever
and rapid pulse when the Thanks
giving vacation rolled around. (Col
lege temporarily adjourned.)

Miss Smith: "Oh, are you a sur
geon?" Mr. B.: "No, I'm the father of a

at a girl, it's because the conceited
thing knows his full face is hand
somer than his profile.
Social Hour Enlivened
The Grand March and three new
musical hits were inaugurated into
the fifth social hour of the year.
A livelier group of students than
usual added to its success.
Donations to the "little tin box"

to have four new records for the
next social hour. Students attend
ing named and voted on the rec
ords they wished to be bought.
