By JAMES E. LAWRENCE.
Lincoln, Feb. 28.-(Spec1al.)-It fell
to the lot of Coach Mulligan's, floor
five and the South Omaha High
school quintet to face two of the
hardest opponents in all of the 119
Nebraska high schools who will take
part in the seventh annual tourna
ment conducted under the auspices
of the University of Nebraska next
Athletic Manager Guy E. Reed and
his assistants last night completed
tias&mtduuu Ul WIG icauia aim uic
arrangement of the schedule for the
first round of the biggest high school
floor meet ever held in the United
States. Nebraska City, the record
discloses, is very likely to give the
Central High a stiff run for their
money, while University Place in gen
erally picked here to put South
Omaha High out of the running. The
University Place lads have an unu
sually formidable squad and have
been runners-up in the tournament
practically every year since it was
started seven years ago. Both the
Omaha and South Omaha teams have
usually had pretty easy sailing in the
initial rounds, but will be compelled
to play their strongest game next
As a rule, the teams are not so
strong as last year, the classification
committee announced. Only twenty
six teams were placed in the Class A
division, thirty-two in the Class B
and sixty-one in Class C.
The winners in each division will
receive the same prizes handsome
silver loving cups, with banners for
second place and gold basket balls
for the members of each champion
Under the present arrangement
the winner of the first game in the
division plays the winner of the sec
ond game in the second round of the
division and so on down through the
, schedule. Reed believes the semi
i finals can be reached Friday night in
most of the divisions, with a full
day's rest before the finals.
Under the drawing Arlington,
Schuyler, Norfolk, Osceola and Co
lumbus in Class A division got into
the second round with a bye, while

Puts Motion That Causes De
feat of Own Measure -in
FIXED PHONE TOLL CHARGE
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Feb. 28 (Special). Lieu
tenant Governor Howard emulated
the example of Nero, who fiddled
while Rome burned, except that he
stood up and smiled when he put the
motion which resulted in the death of
his pet bill, S. F. 160, on which he
made his campaign last fall, making a
maximum rate of 35 cents for tele
phone messages in Nebraska.
However, a "man may smile and
smile and be a villain still," and the
lieutenant governor may have some
thing up his sleeve which causes him
to appear joyful while his -house tum
bles about him.
After scaring the members Into
seven kinds of catnip fits by his reso
lution yesterday regarding the cutting
down of bills, Senator Robertson was
content to allow his resolution to go
over subject to call whenever he sees
fit to call it up, which means that he
will hold it as a club over the heads
of the senate and call it up whenever
the senators look as if they needed
punching up a little.
Opportunity at Last.
In the meantime time was flying
and Senator Albert, who had charge
of Governor Howard's telephone bill,
was getting anxious. Several times
he had risen to his feet about to bring
up the matter; but was crowded out
by other senators. The governor had
his eyes on the Platte county man all
the time and frequently admonished
him not to get too uneasy, "we're ap
proaching it; we're getting there," he
would say, and finally the long looked
for opportunity came.
"Now is your chance," said the pre
siding officer to the Platte county sen
ator. "I object to the presiding officer
coaching the senator from Platte,"
said Senator Tanner with a smale.
However, it was no use and the bill
was killed by a vote of 17 to 15.

Anselmo Farmer! Buy Elevator.

The newly incorporated Anselmo

Coiad, Neb., Feb. 28. (Special.)
Largely through the efforts of the
Commercial club of this place the
Omaha Alfalfa Milling company has
been induced to build a large alfalfa
mill at this place. The mill will cost
about $25,000, will grind about sixty
tons of hay a day and will employ
twenty men. Cozad claims to be
the largest alfalfa shipping point in
the world. About 800 cars are shipped
