O’Neill High School continued
this week to prove that they arc
one of the best class B quintets,
in the state. They beat Oakdale j
Friday and last Tuesday they |
trounced the great Ord five 41 to,
24. Ord, this week, was rated
eighth best in the state according
to the World Herald and the great;
victory which O'Neill won ought
to raise them to at least tenth
place in class B. Right now 1
want to congratulate the Eagles
and 1 think they are the greatest
basketball team in the history of
O’Neill High.
Last week w'hen 1 predicted the
District class C Tournament 1
said that Spencer would beat!
Spalding Academy. I will leave it
that way now but if I could pick ^
it again 1 would pick Spalding1
Academy to win. Spalding Acad-!

last week they won the Catholic1
School Tournament down at
Grand Island; they beat St. Pat

to 19 and they surely ought ty
rate a good chance in the tourna
ment, although I will stick to my
selection and say Spencer will
beat them. 1 am writing this
Wednesday afternoon, before the
Tournament starts, so of course I
do not know how it will turn out.
For a minute I will get away
from the basketball news and take
a second to write about thp fight
Tuesday. Nobody excepted Bob
Pastor to defeat Lem Franklin but
he did and by doing so he has
earned a crack at Louis. Bob has
fought Louis twice, the first time
Ooing the limit and the second
time being knocked out in thcf
eleventh round of the fifteen
round battle, and because Bob did
everything but murder 1 at least
figure that Bob Pastor has earn
ed himself another shot at the

world with Joe Louis.
Now getting back to basketball
last week I said I would pick the
class B state Tournament being
held at O’Neill March 4, 5, and 6.
Here are my selections: First game
Wednesday 6:00 P. M. Ainsworth
to slaughter Atkinson; Creighton
to boat Bassett; Neligh to beat
Plainveiw and O’Neill to beat Val-1
In the second round Thursday
I pick a tough game between
Ainsworth and Creighton and I
pick Ainsworth to beat Creigh
ton, and O'Neill to beat Neligh i
(probably a slaughter). Friday!
night I predict O'Neill to be i
crowned District champs and they j
certainly deserve to win the Dis
trict Tournament, if anybody does.
Last week I predicted four
games: I picked Saint Mary s to
defeat Plainveiw but they lost
this game in an overtime 27 to 25.
I predicted Sacred Heart (Norfolk)
to defeated Saint Mary’s and they
did. I predicted O’Neill to beat
Oakdale and they did an I pre
dict O’Neill to beat Butte but
Butte could not play so thfey
played the great Ord team and
slaughtered them 41 to 24. So
I can’t count the Ord game but
I Ihit .666 percent for the week.
See you next week.

Says Former Cornhusking Champion:
Otto Sorensen, 1939 state
cornhusking champion, now
farming near Blair, says: “I
have noticed an improve
ment in beer retailing condi
tions since the beer industry
began in 1938 to check up
on its own retail places in co
operation with the authori
ties. Farmers around here
who know abont this work
are very much in favor of it.”
Thu Committee appreciates the help farmers have given by patroniz
ing only reputable dealers and by reporting law violations to the State
Liquor Control Commi -ion or to the Committee. Won’t you co-oper
ate in this same way, too?
