Power Turns Back
Fast But 'Stangs
What appeared to be a possible
Arlington victory in the first
quarter was turned into a rout
for the invaders Friday afternoon
when the Heppner Mustangs got
their second wind and began to
show some of the fighting spirit
that has pulled thorn out of bad
holes before. The visitors showed
surprising strength and skill in
executing plays and had the lo
cal lads guessing for awhile, but
when they hit thei stride It was
a different story.
It didn't help the Mustang out
look to have the visitors receive
the initial klckoff and march
right down the field for a touch
down In less than two minutes.
Somewhat dismayed, but un
daunted, the Mustangs returned
the compliment a few minutes
later when It came their turn to
receive the klckoff. A little later
Arlington recovered a Heppner
fumble on Heppner's 25-yard line
and soon ran the ball over for the
second TD. Failure to convert left
the score 13-7 in the Honkers'
favor. Wth 30 seconds to go in
the quarter, Bergstrom ran 30
yards to pay dirt. Connor made,
the extra point on an end run.
Score, Heppner 14, Arlington 13.
Both teams exhibited determin
ation to win in the second half,
playing a scoreless third quarter,
but in the fourth canto it was
Heppner all the way. Ruhl smash
es off tackle made long gains for
Heppner. Kuhl and Green each
scored in this period, making one
conversion and failing on the
Heppner outpointed the visit
ors on other features of the game.
On first downs the count was 17
5 and on yardage 367-114.
The Mustangs are meeting
Grant Union high here this Fri
day afternoon. Two weeks ago
GU played a 12-12 tie with Echo,
the only team to defeat the Mus
tangs so far this season. That the
grandstand should be packed is
the expressed desire of the school
officials and students.

In Nocturnal Flight
A midnight prowler invaded
the Braden Tractor & Equipment
company store in Heppner Friday
night, breaking a window to
make the entrance. It might be
said that the word prowler is un
fair for the invasion seems to
have been more of an accident
A hen pheasant finding herself
within the boundary lines of the
city and perhaps somewhat con
fused by the bright lights along
the main stem was attracted by
the peace and quiet of the inter
ior of the Braden store and dis
regarding the glass front flew
right in. All was peace and quiet
within until the office force be
gan to arrive the next morning
and then the bird decided it was
time to get out which she did
by flying right out of the aper
ture she made on her entrance
the night before.

To Start Building
New Plant at Once
Equipment Used in
Construction of a modern clean
ing plant will start early next
week, according to W. C. Collins,
operator of the Heppner Cleaners
tne past two and one-hair years.
The building will be located next
to the Standard Stations plant
just north of the present cleaning
establishment on property pur
chased by William and Daisy
Collins irom A. A. scouten.
Plans call for a one-story struc
ture, 24 feet wide by 72 feet long,
to be built of Light Rock, one of
the newer interlocking types of
building material. Excavation
has been made to permit the lay
ing of wood flooring in the main
work room and office, while the
cleaning department will have
concrete flooring and will be fire
proofed as completely as possi
ble. Mr. and Mrs. Collins have pur
chased the equipment of the Hep
pner. Cleaners from Mrs. Adelle
Hannan, they having been oper
ating under a lease since taking
over early in 1947. New equip
ment will be added when the
new building is ready for occu
pancy sometime in the early
spring. They have leased the pre
sent building until April 1, 1950.
Coming here from Cottage
Grove where they were engaged
in the laundry and cleaning bus
iness for many years, the Collins
es have built up the local busin
ness to a point where further ex
pansion demanded more space
and they decided to put up their
own building. With more space,
added equipment and better
working arrangement they will
be prepared to give even better
service than in the past.
