on the plea of the basket-ball girls,
which seemed a perfectly just, one,
the managers have agreed to divert. 25
per cent, of the proceeds to the girls'
basket ball fund. The rest will go to
the track fund. From the activity
shown, by all interested, there is no
doubt Hint this sum will be a good one.
