leaders of district 8, they had
but the Mustangs, district 7
champions, to overcome to gain
the right.
And they found the greener
Mustangs a plenty tough obsta
cle. While being forced to de
fend their own territory through
most of the game, the home boys
kept the visitors from crossing
their goal line but twice. Min
utes before the end of the first
half, a Union pass for 26 yards
placed the ball on Heppner's 1
yard line from where Halfback
Larry Wilson bucked it over. End
Alva Roberts' attempted kick for
extra point was no good and the
half ended, 6 0.
Again, just a few minutes be
fore the final gun, when Clar

at halfback had been taken from
the game with an injured leg,
and after a dazzling run of 16
yards by Wilson and a complet

the ball on the Heppner 5, Carl

carried it across. This time an
attempted pass for extra point
failed, and the score at game's
end stood 12-0. It had not been
an easy, but it was a well-earned
victory for Union.
Heppner had started the sea

While traveling towards Chi
cago last week, the editor was
visiting with several people In
the lounge car of the City of
Portland streamliner. Two wo
men were discussing the contrast
between the snow-covered region
through which the train was
thundering on its mad race to
the "Windy City," expressing a
preference for their own Willam
ette valley where the roses are
still in bloom and many other
flowers not recognizing the sea
son when they are not supposed
to be in bloom.
When the timid editor finally
got in a word he informed the
"valley" folk that eastern Ore
gon could also do a little brag
ging along that line. The men
tion of eastern Oregon brought
a quick response from one of
the women. "Which section of
eastern Oregon do you hail
from?" "From Heppner." "Hepp
ner! That's my old home town!"
Then followed the usual ques
tions what s your name, etc. It
turned out that the lady in
question was Mrs. Paul S. Rut
ledge, lately of McMinnville and
then en route to New York with
her son, Billy Kistler, where they
would embark for Germany to
Join Capt Rutledge at Mann
heim. Mrs. Rutledge is the
daughter of our own townsman,

Girl Scouts Mail
Christmas Gifts
To Foreign Lands
By Joan Bothwell and
Sally Conn, Reporters
On Monday, November 17, ev
ery Girl Scout of Troop No. 2 of
Heppner brought parcels of food
from their homes to the meet
ing to send to a troop of Girl
Guides in Banstead, Surrey,
England. Our troop has been
corresponding with girls of this
troop for over a year. The food
included canned vegetables, dri
ed fruits, cereals, puddings, nuts,
rice ,tea, fish, and candy. The
food was packed into ten car
tons by the leader and troop
committee who spent many
hours doing it The postoffice
had a lot of extra work and used
all of its glue, pasting on the
labels and forms, and the 112
pounds of food finally left Tues
day evening for England.
It took $16.40 to send our food
parcels to England. In fact, it
took the last cent in our treasury
to pay the postage. So we are
broke, but very happy that we
could send this "Treasure for
Pleasure" to our sister Girl
Guides, who are not so fortun
ate as we are.
By Sandra Lanham,
Troop One Reporter
The Girl Scouts of Troop One
have just completed the interna
tional project, 'Treasures for
Pleasure." This consisted of ga
thering and packing eight boxes
of food and toys to be sent
abroad for Christmas gifts. The
girls chose to send their boxes
to the Girl Guides In France and
to the Girl Scouts in the Philip
pine islands. Included in the
boxes were two dozen dolls.
Some the girls made from yarn,
and some were dolls which they
brought from home and repaired
and dressed.. They also wrote let
ters to their foreign friends
This project helped the girls
to put into practice Girl Scout
law number 4, "A Girl Scout is
friend to all and a sister to
every other Girl Scout." She has
a feeling of good will toward
people, regardless of nationality
creed or color. She makes an es
pecial point of being friendly to
all the members of her troop and
to Girl Scouts everywhere.
On Nov. 24 they held their
Treasures for Pleasure" party.
They wrapped the gifts in gay
Christmas papers and packed
them in mailing cartons. Hot
chocolate and cookies were serv
ed by Mrs. Claude Graham and
Mrs. Stephen Thompson. Mrs.
Richard Meador was a guest of
the troop.
