Up to now, through days of opulent plenty, we have taken the
day of heavily laden festive boards for granted . . . the ritual of
browned, crackling turkey, bright, tart, shining cranberry sauce, and
rich, crusty, delicious pumpkin pie!
Not this year ... we are awakened from our lethargy ... we are
mindful of the proud, humble Thanksgiving in our hearts ... for the
food that is set before us, for the multitude of blessings still show

Lanky End Spoils
A lanky six foot six-inch end on
the Dayton football team spoiled
Heppner's chance for a state "B"
title last Friday afternoon on the
Linfield college field at McMinn
ville. At the end of the third
quarter the score stood 13-7 in fa
vor of the Mustangs and it looked
like the eastern Oregon boys were
on their way to the championship
when the Dayton lads began to
throw passes to the stratospheric
Todd. This) was in the final six
minutes of the game and the score
was tied 13 all.
Another pass into the end zone
netted the valley team another
touchdown and making the con
verson good, the scoring ended 20-13
in their favor.
Jim Barratt and Wade Bothwell
were the scoring aces for the Mus
tangs. Bothwell made the first
touchdown with a 50-yard run in
the second quarter, Bill Buckflum
converting. Barratt took a Dayton
kick on his own 15 -yard line in
the third quarter and with good
blocking raced up the side lines
for the second touchdown.

fourth quarter by the injury of
Drake and Parrish.
