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.

Lincoln, with a substitute team, ran away from Humboldt, making a record score of IjC to 8.

Lincoln's Error Fata . test. -This was Univorslty Place's first appoaranco on tho big floor and 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 coln erred. The Bcoro was 27 to 18. 8outh Omaha. Seems Doomed.

Omaha and either University Place or Beatrice would havo a groat battle to decide thilr game, no mat ter now tho drawings go.
