Friday, Dec. 16, Operetta. Sunday, Dec. 18, Grande School Band Program. 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. Heppner Girl to be Given Trip East Each D. A. R. chapter in Oregon sponsors one girl from a high school in the state to be a candidate for a free trip to Washington, D. C. in April, 1939. The Willamette chapter in Port land has asked to sponsor a girl from ' Heppner. Four nominees for this honor were made: Sibyl Howell, Helen Egan, Bethal Blake, Frances McCarty. Later on, the Heppner student body will vote to decide which one of these four girls will represent Heppner high school. Last Friday the Girls' League held a meeting, which pertained mostly to the discussion of careers, as each girl had to answer roll call with her expected career upon gradua tion. Mrs. Lucy Rodgers also gave the girls a very interesting talk on careers. The girls discussed what their corning assembly would be, and ginally decided they should have a White Elephant auction. Boys, be sure to bring your nickels and dimes this Friday. Guess Who?

GAS HOUSE GOSSIP By JOE AIKEN Loaded with all the Thanksgiving goodies, the local ball hawkers re turned to regular practice upon the maple court. 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, Condon here; 14, lone there. Here and Yon ' The lads who have just earned their letters are slowly being init iated into the "H" club. This week they are to wear one side of their face shaved and the other side with what they are able to raise. The local police force has taken up a side line of basketball. Homer Hayes, constable, shot baskets in the gym during vacation. LaVern Van Marter has been scrimmaging with the local basket ball turn-outs for the past week. Len Gilman enjoyed a pleasant holiday vacation with his parents. Len suffered a split tendon in his back in the game between Pacific university and Willamette. Vernon Knowles, ex-Heppner star guard, was telling the lads all about college life last Thursday night at the dance. M. Tetz of Adams visited Heppner last Saturday and Sunday. Adams played their first game of the sea son last Friday. They lost to Irrigon. Mr. Tetz stated that Jones, the lad who made last year's all star for Ir rigon in the tournament, was the key man. He accounted for twelve points. Mr. Peavy, local English teacher, spent the holiday in the gym shoot ing baskets. 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 broken up it will be more expense for the student body. Vacation Happenings Frances McCarty, Clarabelle Ad ams, Betty Happold, Bob Scrivner, Mr. Peavy, John and Calvin Craw ford were among those attending the Oregon-Oregon State game in Portland, Saturday. College students spending Thanks giving vacation at home were Har riet Hager, Norton King, Nancy Cox, Paul McCarty, La Verne Van Mar ter, Maxine McCurdy and Len Gil man. Sibyl and Dorothy Howell and Margaret Doolittle were hostesses Friday night at a surprise party honoring La Verne Van Marter. Several high school students at tended the Elks Thanksgiving dance, Thursday night, and Rhea creek dance, Saturday. Dick Bogoger spent Thanksgiving vacation at the home of his parents in Portland. ' Bob Pinckney spent the holiday vacation in Spokane. 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 good. 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 grip 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.) ONE YEAR AGO Taps were blown upon Heppner high's football season at a banquet given last Saturday evening by the Home Ec club. Heppner high school's basketball season will officially open next Mon day against lone at the local gym nasium. The local boy will be wear ing new suits. Pep club gave assembly today. FIVE YEARS AGO A special assembly was called for the purpose of warning students against agents from unrecognized correspondence schools. Raymond Drake and Miriam Moy er were initiated into the Benzine ring. Mr. Lumley, mathematic instruc tor, is to leave to teach school at The Dalles high school. TEN YEARS AGO December 1 will be Boy Scout day. Juniors and seniors debated on the question, "Resolved, that phys ical education should be abolished from Oregon high schools." The Heppner grade school gave a fine program, which surprised the local townspeople. Boy Scouts plan on building a summer camp. Humor Dorothy: "What'll we do tonight?" Bob Applegate: "Let's think it over." Dorothy: "No, let's do something you can do, too." Lowell Ashbaugh: "If you don't mind, Til be skipping on my merry way, Norma." Norma Prock: "Say, what kind of monkey business are you up to, now?" Don Jones: "Well' Jack, how did you get by in your exams?" Jack Merrill: "Must have been that end run in the last quarter." Austin? "I once ran into a flock of geese while doing seventy miles an hour." Clifford Fay: "I'll bet you were scared." Austin: "No, but I was covered with gooseflesh." Mr. Knox: "What's the formula for water?" John Crawford: "H20." Mr; Knox: "Right! Now tell me the formula for sea water." J. C: "CH20." Mrs. Clark: "What are the two genders?" Bob Scrivner: "Masculine and feminine. The feminine are divided into frigid and torrid; the masiu line, into temperate and intemper ate." " Mr. Bennett: "I have to perform an operation on a nose." Miss Smith: "Oh, are you a sur geon?" Mr. B.: "No, I'm the father of a 'small boy who never has a hand kerchief. When a boy won't look sideways 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" at that time have made it possible 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. The social hours will not be al together successful until a larger and more regular attendance is estab lished. There has been a rumor of refreshments for the next time. Student Opinion on Swing Music Betty Happold It's alright if you can really swing to it. Art McAtee I could do better on my bazzoka. Joe Aiken Not for fleshy people. Thomas Gonty Okay. Andy Davidson It's O. K., if it's played right. Bill Blake Gets on my nerves. Frances McCarty Desecration of the finer arts. FFA Activities A regular meeting was held in the chapter room last Wednesday afternoon. There was some discus sion on a smoker and basketball team. The chapter purchased a new punching bag so that boxing boys may get more and better practice this year. Don't Look Now, But Laura Warfield got her dates mixed and went to the show alone Saturday. We think John Crawford is How elling around again. Lowell Ashbaugh is interested in the trucking business. How about it, Norma? Bill Blake worked on the rock pile three hours and hauled three loads of rock. Omer McCaleb is always in the library of late. Explain it, Ruth. Joe Aiken woke the student body up with the loudest pair of pants we have seen since Kemp Dick tore his. Hugh Crawford is becoming a night owl. Did you have anything to do with it, Cora? Mr. Peavy has a brand new suit. Harry O'Donnell's feminine ad mirers' hearts skipped a beat when they saw him in a suit Friday. Laxton McMurray was a business visitor in the city Tuesday from the Jordan Siding farm. Professional Directory GLENN Y.
