None of the leaders was disturbed
in the Huntington handicap tourna
ment yesterday. The Ostronics had
a great chance to go into the lead;
they had 1,697 pins for their first two
games, but fell down badly in their
last game, only getting 852.
The Central Furniture company
team rolled into third place with
2,866. As this team only has a han
dicap of 63 pins, they bowled the
highest total so, far in the tourna
ment. Sunday the alleys will be occupied
by all out-of-town teams. Scores:

exceedingly hard fought.

with a rush, cattinar one field basket
and a free throw from the foul line.'
McNutt, left forward for the Bluffs,
soon found himself and easily over
threw South High's lead on the
Bluffs boys. He was the star bf the
contest, caging eight field baskets
for the fluffs throughout the game.
The score at the end of the first half
was 15 to 10 in favor of the Bluffs.
At the opening of the second half
Captain Saunders of the local five set
his usual pact that he has kept in
every game of the season so far,
caging a number of pretty baskets for
his team. Datesnian's and Morri
son's close guarding held the score
low for South Omaha. '

score in spite of the
guarding. The lineup:
