It is to be hoped that wrong impressions will
not bo gained and spread relative to this improve
ment. Up to the present the council is not prepar
ed to give out definite information. As soon as
plans arc completed for construction and financ
ing, proper information will be released. There
will be difficulties to iron out and it is reasonable
to expect that there will be misunderstandings.

ASSOC AT ON
District Votes To
Retain High School
By Mrs. Cecil Jones
A meeting of the voters of the
Lexington school district was
held Friday night in the auditor
ium of the school house with the
main issue being whether they
wished to continue the high
school or transport the students
to another school. It was voted
to continue the local school with
a majority of 66 to 17. Mr. Cuts
forth gave a talk on a union high
school between Heppner and
Lexington. A standing unofficial
vote was taken to satisfy Mr,
Cutsforth's committee, as to whe
ther it was worth their time and
effort to continue the work. The
vote carried to their satisfaction
and they will continue investiga
tion on the project. Several things
are to be done to the local school
buildings to bring them up to
standard, but all can be accom
plished during vacation.

interesting part of his talk be

out that heifers bred to calve at

The plan for a complete test

should be most helpful to th

dividual difficulties of the stu
