Lads Quite Easily
The Townsends had their dander up
last night and the formidable reputation
of Intercollegiate champions of Nebraska
had no terrots for them. Result:
Nebraska Weslevan was very neatly
trounced, 25 to 14.
The victory was largely due to th
basket heaving procllvlttee manifested hy
Messrs. Hughes and Burkenrnari. Hughes
flipped five baskets and Burkenmad four,
one of Hughes' shots wan of the sensa
tional calibre. He pitched the sphere
from past tho center of the floor and
from one side. It ealled cleanly through
the basket not even touching the rim
and completely paralysed the Wesleyan
men. It was considerable shot.
Warren Ritchie was the original demon
at guard and even took a rhance on
Johnson, who Is about as large and
pugnacious as Jrss Wlllard. Due to
Ritchie's guarding Johnson made nary a
basket. The line up:
