CAE HAS SMASH UP
From Thursday's Dally.
The residents of the vicinity of
Lincoln avenue and Granite street
were rather startled last night when
a loud crash was heard and they hur
ried from their homes to find a Ford
touring car badly demolished at the
intersection near the Atlantic house.
It seems that the car. which was
owned by parties residing at Friend,
Nebraska, had been driven up the
hill and when partially up the hill
side there had been some trouble that
necessitated the occupants of the car
eetting out to make a few hurried

The high school basketball season
will soon be ready to launch itself
and permit the lovers of this form
of sport to enjoy a number of very
interesting games during the winter
The workout of the candidates for
the team has shown some splendid
results and a number of very fast
players have been developed in' the
school in the short time that they
Jiave been working out. The last
year's team was largely seniors. Sat

er and other of the fast players re
tiring at the close of the school year,
and therefore it became necessary
to develop a new line up and the re
sult has been that a team of excep
tional fastness has been whipped in
to shape for the season.
The team this season vill not be as
heavy as thatvof last year but the
players arc fast on the floar and
should prove a hard proposition for
nny of their opponents to defeat.
Howard and Harry Dwyer. Stewart

material that the ; athletic depart

nothing of value secured.
The large safe that Etood in the

been attacked by the night-time visi

necessary to have an expert come
