- " to Win.
South Omaha High school opened - tho
basket ball season by winning tho last
game with the Alumni toam by a score
of S3 to 33. In spite of the fact that the
Alumni team was composed of the
greatest basket ball warriors In tho
athletlo history of tho high school, and
that, the locals were composed almost en
tirely of lust years secuud team players.
South Omaha showed some of Its former
motnl by holding tho Mcnofoo-Flttlo com-
btno down throughout tho entlro game,
and In tho last half winning by a margin
of two points.
The Alumni started out with a rush
and had scored three points before South
Omaha appeared to know that the game
was In prepress. Ilowovcr, tho locals
soon woke up and slowly but surely
piled up the score and the first half
ended with the Alumni four points ahead,
the -.orlng standing, IS to 2t
Tha socond half opened with tho
Alumni somewhat winded and South
Omaha playing a steady game. Shirley
Menefeo made a desperate attempt to
win the game In the second half, but was
able to throw only one basket undor the
vigilant guarding of Bryan Nixon, the
left guard of South Omaha. Tho Alumni
team mado but eight' points In the second
half while South"Omaha scored fourteen
points. The game ended with South
Omaha In the lead with two points, the
final score being, SS to SI
The victory was wholly unexpected by
the crowd present and It Is predicted by
many that South Omaha will stand a
good chance for the stato, championship
this year. Foley (Louis), left forward
for South Omaha, scored the most points,
making eighteen of tho thirty-five points
for South Omaha. Frank Foley scored
twelve of the thirty-three points for the
Alumni. The lineups are as follows
