Beatrice, University Place, Omaha
and 8outh Omaha Will contest
in the Finals.
Yesterday afternoon saw the first
process of elimination in tho high
school basketball championship series.
South Omaha started the work by
putting Tocumseh out of tho running,
score 27 to 9. Tecumseh put up a
plucky fight, but was clearly out
classed. Townsond and Stewart
showed up well for Tocumseh, while
Collins and Menefee were the indi
vidual stars for South Omaha. Cen
tral City noxt won a hard contest
with Wahoo, taking tho game by a
scoro of 19 to 15. Hamilton of Wahoo
played a great game and with better
support would have shaded Central
City. Kerr and McDonald' of Central
City played tho beat' game for their
team. Beatrice, playing an easy
game and not exerting itself, defeated
Elgin 24 to 17. Sherry of Elgin is a
good man and scored most of the
points mado by his team. Rutherford,
Le Bas and Luse of Beatrice played
up to their usual form, Luse getting
all free throws on his chances.
A Groat Game. .
Omaha and Qenova played the great
game of tho afternoon, in which
Qonova nearly overcame the load
established, by Omaha in tho first
half by crawling up within two polntB.

vantage of having to play on a small
fjoor, but their goal shooting in the
last half was poor and came nearly

a great pair and put up tho gamo of
their lives, but Burkenroad of Omaha
played tho best gamo of tho day,
qcorlng twenty-six of the points "made
by tho Omaha team. Lincoln, with
a substitute team, ran away from
Humboldt, making a record score of
IjC to 8. Allen, Agor and Hugg for
Lincoln formed a wonderful scoring
machine, while Williamson of Hum
boldt was tho one worthy man In the
Humboldt lineup. University Place
was again handicappod by the small
floor, defeating Schuyler in a close
fame 13 to Allen and Ylfqyaln qf
University Place and McKenzlo and
Kadolook of Schuyler were the stara.
Tho evening contests gave tho largo
crowd twp goa jjames and ono easy

Its teamwork, togother with the ex
cellent playing of H. Vifquain and
Alien, won tho game. Lincoln showed
poor judgment in not starting tho
game with its beBt team and then in
changing to tako out one of tho best
players in order to substitute an in
ferior man. This 1b not said to bo
little University Place, for it is a
great team and no doubt would have
won tho gamo, but nevertheless Lin
