A telephone message to the Bluffs

for a booze car" headed this way.
Captain Shafer and a corps of his
professional H)ooze chasers took a po
lice jitney and went down the Glen
wood road as far, as the Mosquito
creek bridge to meet the car. No
car appeared, and after a lonir. cruellv
cold wait, they came back and spetrH

Men Stampede Visitors From
North, Winning by Score
of 29 to 10. i
Central High's basket ball team
trounced the Sioux City five, 29 to 10,
Saturday at the Young Men's Chris
tian association gymnasium. The
Iowa lads put up a good tight, but the
local tossers outplayed them in every
way. Smooth team, work won for
Maxwell was the shining light of
the Purple five. Six field goals and
three free throws were scored by the
Central captain. A. Smith at forward
also drew applause.
Most of Central's team plays ended
with the ball in Smith's hands. Payn
ter had sufficiently recovered from
his recent illness to start at center,
but was taken out during the first
part of the second half. Konecky
and Benolken also were given a
chance at-the Iowa quintet.
Hollenbcck, Sioux City's best play
er, had no chance for spectacular
work because of insufficient backing.
Ditring the first half the ball was al
most entirely in the hands of. the
Maxwell led off with a field goal
aftty but 15 seconds of play. Scores
came slowly until Central's machine
purred smoothly and the count
climbed t.. 15 points at the end of the
first ( half. Ilollenbeck made Sioux
City's lone point during this period.
The second half came harder for
Omaha. I The Sioux were Central's
equals during the first part. Worth
soon told and the boys from the hill
broke away for their 29 to 10 victory.
In the preliminaries the Freshmen
beat the Juniors, 15 to 7, and the
Seniors beat the Sophomores, 16 to 2,
nabbing the inter-class championship
for 1918. F
