that, city, resulting favorably to Falls
City, tin* score being 37 to 2." Syra
cuse has what is considered the fast
est basket ball team in the state, and
to defeat, them b,v such a. score is
deemed by all schools to be some
thing to lie proud of. This puts our
boys in a fair way i<> win the state
championship. Our boys say they
were a genteel manly tot of fellows
and they enjoyed the game immense
The hardest game they have play
ed was with the Lincoln, V. M. 0 A.
team, which has a reputation for be
ing one of tile very best in the state
of Nebraska. The boys were warned
that they would not get a goal, where
as they made six goals. They hope
to have better success if the V. M.
C. A. plays here. The Lincoln team
are all gromn men of the athletic
sort. Our boys did fine, and we are
proud of them. If good wishes will
help them any in the coming year,we
are sure the state championship will
fall to Falls City.

instead of hitting tiny of his visitors,
the shot went rather Into another dir

out they used revolvers and shot
back Into the bouse several times,
