careless and inaccurate with their
shots. The local players presented
a tar superior deiense and better
drilled attack. " Even when four

Creighton lineup, the Omahans out
played the Chief Eagle's tribe of

count. Kearney put his team in the
lead and from then on the locals
topped the Indians in scoring ability.
Captain Kearney of Creighton was
the individual star and ;p6int col
lector of the game. The local jumper

throws out of four chances at the
rings. Wise and Berry netted a
trio of baskets apiece. Condon
For Haskell, Andersojj and Car

goal Carney registered two goals
