A Chance For The Finals
Heppner in proud of the Mustang football squad
Ihli year of 1947 and our people will bo looking
forward to Friday s contest with great hopes that
the team will come out with the privilege of par
ticipating In the state final ' B" playoff. This will
be a distinctive honor for our high school and the
community. However, it is well understood that
Union li a really tough aggregation and one can
only hope for the best when the young gladiators
meet at Rodeo field.
Coach Leonard Pate has come up with good
athletic teams each year and we think he has
done a splendid job this year. Left with three
Jettermen as a nucleus he has built up one of the
best teams seen in action here for several years.
There are no big hunks of kids in the line or in
the backfield. They are all average size and
thoroughly capable of taking care of themselves
in any "B" company.
At the beginning of the season the coach was
Justifiably dubious about his team's chances for
district honors. Almost an entirely new squad
had to be developed and many of them had never
played on a competitive basis. It was a doubtful
outlook but not one without hope, for these
youngsters gave promise of learning to play the
game and while the team and fans might have
to eat a little humble pie this year, the coach
was confident that by another season Heppner
could be counted in the winning column. He told
ye scribe as much when, prior to the Prairie City
game the question was asked, "What are your
chances for tomorrow?" To console him, the
scribe ventured the suggestion that the brand
new bunch of boys willing to learn the game as
he wanted It played might bring greater success
to him than a group of older boys who ofttimes
gain the Impression that they are invaluable and
take matters into their own hands, more or less.
The coach replied that there might be something
to the idea. We have not seen him to ask what
he thinks of it now, but the fact remains that
the Mustangs are scheduled to play a semi-final
game and those kids are as full of fight as a
bunch of angry hornets, even after playing three
heavy games in the past two weeks.
There is no doubt but that a banner crowd will
be on hand to back up the Mustangs Friday afternoon.
Remember To Buy Seals
Twenty-five years ago, Oregon's death rate
from tuberculosis was 70 per 100,000 population;
today that rate has dropped to 24 per 100,000.
Through cooperation of the newspapers and var
ious other agencies during the annual Christmas
Seal sale, a campaign of education has been car
ried out which has resulted in making the public
tuberculosis conscious. This and the effective
work of the Oregon Tuberculosis and Health as
sociation and similar associations throughout the
land has caused a gradual decline in the death
rate due to this dreadful malady.
In a few days the campaign will open to raise
funds through the sale of Christmas seals. These
"Seal" dollars must continue to contribute to
ward the constant research for a specific cure
for tuberculosis. These dollars must continue to
promote health programs and activities to pro
tect the community against the disease. Christ
mas Seal dollars can enable every adult to have
an annual free chest x-ray that shows the pre
sence of tuberculosis before definite symptoms
appear. Early discovery means early recovery.
When you buy a block of Christmas Seals you
may contribute toward your own welfare more
directly than you think or realize. Keep this in
mind and don't begrudge a few dollars from
your budget, or, better still, from your pleasure
fund, when the Christmas Seal sale opens No

NEW INCOME TAX LAWS
The income tax division of the
state tax commission this week
anounced its interpretation of
the withholding tax laws enact
ed by the 1947 legislature, which
becomes effective January 1. The
division holds that before deduc
tions for federal withholding
taxes, social security or indus
trial accident contributions are
made of the 1 percent withheld
from salaries and wages of em
ployees must be applied to the
gross compensation of employ
ees. This will apply only to em
ployers with a monthly payroll
of more than $50. Employers
coming under the provisions of
the act are also required to reck
on as part of the employees com
pensation, the fair value of
meals, quarters and services fur
nished to the employee as a part
of his compensation, irrespect
ive of whether such perquisites
are supplied wholly or in part
for the convenience of the em
ployer." The employer must re
mit withholdings to the tax com
mission on or before the 30th day
of the month following the close
of the quarter."

What an outstanding univer
sity could be established by the
excellent instructors in Oregon
who will be retired this year by
the state. The only reason for
discontinuing the valuable ser
vices of these experienced educa
tors is that they have reached
the age of 65 years. State col
leges and universities have laid
down a blanket rule that teach
ers must quit when they reach
retirement age, whether they
wish to or not. Several state de
partments this week requested
permission of the retirement
board to retain some of their dex
terous workers who are up for
retirement December 31. The
state highway department, in
dustrial accident commission, en
gineer's office, unemployment
compensation, public utilities
commission and other depart
ments find it difficult just now
to replace skilled help. It always
cost the state money to make a
change of personnel in key po
sitions. In many departments
months of training is required
before efficiency is obtained.
When workers are retained be
yond the retirement age by or
der of the board an application
for continuance must be made
each year and may be repeated
