Lincoln has had a rare treat, a nov
elty, In the manner of a girls' basket
ball tournament. This Is tno first time
in the history of basketball in Nebraska
that teams from various high schools
havo met tho University of Nebraska
aggregation. That much interest was
manifest in tho tournament was evi
denced by the largo crowd assembled
at Memorial Hall last Friday evening.
Omaha, Wahoo and Lincoln high
schools had contributed teams for the
contest, and their various admirers
filled tho hall with yells of all kinds
and descriptions largo and small,
high and low, long and short, and oth
erwise. Wahoo's small delegation was very
prominent with their short, snappy
yelps, while Omaha was equally notlce
ablo with the old familiar "Omaha
high school," which we are accustomed
to hear on tho campus about football
season. Lincoln, of course, had her
many friends from about town who
wero very enthusiastic with expecta
tions of winning everything in sight,
but tho "U-u-unl-ver-ver-sity" was
heard above all other yells, demonstrat
ing tho fact that Nebraska was well
represented. Of tho entlro crowd,
numbering perhaps GOO, fully one-half
were supporting tho two teams from

The battlo opened with Wahoo and
tho first team of Nebraska In tho field.
Hero one was especially struck with
the advantage Nebraska had in size.
The Wahoo girls wero short and stout,
with plenty of vim and endurance; Ne
braska was tall, fast and equally de
termined. But size with an abundance
of skill won. In less than four min
utes' play Nebraska had a goal and an
other ono in two minutes more. All
this tlmo tho ball was in Nebraska ter
ritory. Then came a succession of
fouls wherein Wahoo showed her skill
In throwing goals from fouls. Hero
she made threo points In as many min
utes. Nebraska's small forward was
struck In tho oyo and called for time.
Her colleagues came to tho rescuo in
true girl fashion and after a fow mo
ments tho game was resumed. Ne
braska played better now and threw
two goals in quick succession. About
this time Minnie Guile and Captain
Miller began their star playing, throw
ing three goals beforo Wahoo could
find the ball. The latter team was be
ing outplayed on all sides, but not be
cause they lacked vigor and vim. Lit
tlo Theresa St. Martin, who Is only
half as tall as Blanche Emmons, was
playing fast and furious and secured
tho ball every time it hit the floor, out
Nebraska seldom let the ball get out of
their hands. Just beforo the end of
tho first half Wahoo throw a goal.
Score, Nebraska 18, Wahoo 5.
The second half was a repetition of
tho first. Nebraska played fast, and
ivathryn St. Martin for Wahoo was
Improving. Several fouls wero made,
In which Nebraska had tho advantage.
The final score: Nebraska first team
27, Wahoo 10.
Tho next name was between Lincoln

evenly matched and an exciting con
test followed. Tho ball started In Lin
coln's territory but tho llttlo high
school girls wero unablo to play fair
and made four fouls without intermis
sion. Nebraska gained on two of these.
Nebraska also fouled twlco, with no
gain for Lincoln. Then tho high
school girls threw a goal and the crowd
Lincoln was playing good ball. Pearl
Archibald and llttlo Captain King wero
everywhere at once, and tho guards
kept tho ball well out of Nebraska's
territory. After a short rest, Lincoln
throw two goals and Nebraska one.
This ended the first half.
In the second half Edith Shaw played
good ball, and Mabel Guile wrs improv
ing. Lincoln got ono goal and tho rest
of tho game consisted of fast playing

Omaha high school and tho university
first team. Tho teams wero evenly
matched Omaha's tall guard being In
vincible. In tho first half both teams
fouled considerably, but Omaha threw
one goal. Both teams played very fast,
the ball being In Nebraska's territory
most of tho time. In tho second half
Nebraska had things her own way and

advantage they played under on ac
count of tho height of their opponents,
caused their defeat.
