Students Rank High
at Speech Arts Fete
By HARDMAN HIGH SCHOOL
The high school students with
Mr. and Mrs. Tyndal Robison and
Mrs. Marie Clary, left early on Fri
day morning on their trip with the
Eastern Oregon Speech Arts festival
in La Grande as their main object
ive. Mrs. Robison went only as far
as Butter creek where she stopped
for a visit at the Chas. Bartholomew
home. The first stop was at the
big supply dam near Pendleton.
During the day visits were made
at the Eastern Oregon hospital, the
new sawmill and box factory, the
East Oregonlan, the courthouse, the
woolen mills and the Collins flour
mill. Then after a full day in Pen
dleton they went on to La Grande
where on Saturday in the forenoon
Vera McDaniel and Mildred Clary
participated in the poetry reading,
all attending the picnic supper in
the patio on the campus, and in the
evening Vera and Vern McDaniel,
Jeanne Leathers, Mildred and Irl
Clary put on their play, "Orville's
Big Date." Plays were put on all
during the afternoon and evening,
with those who had previously
shown their ability being given the
better places. The Hardmanites did
very well for themselves and were
pleased when they were given one
of the best places on the program.
The students had worked hard on
their play and poems, and although
the events are all non-competitive,
the criticism given by experts is
often urettv severe. Pendleton, Ba
ker and La Grande and such schools
are the ones who always take part,
and both by the applause of the
audience and the estimate of critics
Hardman did very well.
On Sundav the group spent the
forenoon visiting the new hall for
the eirls at the Eastern Oregon Col
of Education, and the perfect
and beautiful new St Joseph hos
pital, after which Mr. and Mrs. Har
ry Owen and little Dean were guests

Owen are now living at Union and

iel and Jeanne Leathers spent Sat-
urdav nieht at their home.
At 2 o'clock the bunch arrived
at. the Tutuilla Indian mission where
a special meeting of the Christian
Endeavor was held for the pur
pose of meeting the Hardman peo
tile, and during the afternoon vis
itnra frnm Pendleton. Salem, Mt.
Vernon and Chicago also arrived
The five high school students sang
a special number accompanied by
Mrs. Clarv. After the services in
the church the Indians served a
delicious meal in the long-house.
Group pictures were taken and ev
erybody enjoyed the hospitality of
the Indians. At the close all joined
hands and Vera led in a number
of songs, the last of which was
"God Be With You Til We Meet
Again," sung first in English and
then in Indian.

Although the weather reporter
was absent from Morrow county
over the week end, the weather con

it was nothing to brag about. A
great deal of unneeded rain fell on
Sunday. On Monday there was a
changeableness which predicted any
thing, and that anything turned to
the very worst, for on Tuesday
morning we were greeted by a snow
storm, low temperatures, and fin
ally by a disagreeable rain, accom
panied by wind.
