Published by the Students of

On February 15, the Heppner high
. school band sponsored a dance to
help raise money for new uniforms
The net profit on this dance was
$79.50. As can readily be seen, this
is not a sufficient amount to buy
uniforms. As time goes on, how
ever, and our funds increase, you
can be assured of seeing the band
marching up the street all togged
out in new military uniforms, a
flashy school band you will be proud
In behalf of Mr. Buhman, our di
rector, and the band, may this op
portunity be taken to thank each
and every one of you for the sup
port that you are giving the band
in this campaign. We are especially
grateful to the Elks lodge, who, as
usual, is supporting the band one
hundred percent. Thank you.
Lowell Ashbaugh, Band Presi.
