Red Cloud 7, FrankllnS.
Friday's game, the fifth one played
this week, resulted in a victory for the
home team over the Franklin nine by
a score of 7 to :t. Our boys have play
ed ball all the week and yet they play
good ball right along, and posses in
dominible staying powers that could
hardly be expected of a team that has
had so little practice. This proves
that they are a team of exceptional
caliber They have been victorious in
nearly every game they have played
this season, winning f.ioin the Haskell
Indians and breaking even with the
Topoka (Slants both fast teams. Wo
the title of champions of the Republi
can Valley justly belongs to them.
