tho state havo gathorod in Lincoln
and yesterday afternoon tho initial
contests of tho stato championship
sorlou wore played. As in all pre
liminary games, good teams woro
pitted against poor ones, poor teams
against poor ones and good teams
against good teams, making some1 of
tho gamos closo and othors very one
sided. Some of tho aftornoon gamos
were close and In all respects games
worth soolng, yet the evening games
drew tho big crowds and tho seem

attempts to root for thoir rospoctlvo

South Omaha playing up. to her usual
form and winning easily, 4Q to 16.
The Central City-Nebraska City gamo
ws the sensational game of the af tor
noon the former finally winning by a
ntfrow margin. Both tarns played fast,
hard gamos and the gamo was any
body's up to tho final whistle. Wahoo
romped around the floor with Blair
to tho tune of 45 to 8, probably mak
ing tho record score of the serlos.
The closest and hardest fought game
was between Sidney and Elgin, tho
latter winning 23 to 21. Both of theso
teams are above tho average and
Elgin will be hoard of again in tho

bout in which Geneva bested, 20 to 16.
The evening games woro rather one
sided, Omaha easily defeating the
husky State Farm quintet 51 to 11.
