NORTH PLATTE, NEBRASKA, OCTOBER 10, 1922.
FOOTBALL DOPE ON -1
HIGH SCHOOL BOS TO MEET
SOME BIG TEAMS BEFORE
SEASON IS ENDED
The defeat of last Friday has con
siderably lessened the chances of a
championship team In the local hlgn
-tsekool but it is still possible for the
locals to cotne out on top. If none
f the major teams should go through
the season without defeat the champ
ionship would havo to bo decided by
considering the records of tho major
teams and should North riatto win
all the rest of the games it is still
possible for it to retain tho state
Of the teams which North riatto
tUl has to play Central City lost
.Friday's game to Grand Island and
South Omaha lost to Fremont. Goth
enburg won from Broken Bow, Mc
Cook from Orleans, Columbus from
OBccola and Bayard from Morrill.
Farnum won from Cdzad. It looks
as though tho gamo with McCook
Tioxt Friday would bo one of tho big
games on tho local field and should
North Platte win it will mean much
to redeem the loss of tho game to
Lexington. Each weefcsees tho pro
cess of elimination going on and the
schools by comparison are dropping
out of the championship class. Tho
statement of Mr. Neville that a state
championship comes to the average
school but onco in a lifetime and
cannot reasonably bo expected two
years in succession is an assurance
that the ordinary luck of the most of
schools has been reached by North
Platte and that under ordinary, con- i
tiltions we cannot expect to win the ,
state title again for several years, j
This is not disheartening as tho state-1
stent rests on tho law of averages and i
