gymnasium, which was scheduled fo'
Tuesday night, will be played on Fri
Iday night. The University of Souti
-Carolina has a strong team, as evi
denced by the game played at Co
lu,mbia some time ago, in which New

points. Newberry's team has beei
practicing hard and is now in goot
form for this coming contest.
It is hoped that a large crowd a
spectators will be out Friday nigh
to. greet the university boys. Tha
gymnasium will be warm and com
fortabl'e, and this added to the "heat
ed" contest will be enough to warn
and cheer the coldest Newberrians
The game will be called a little ear
lier than usual so as to allow th
Ivisitors to catch the "cannon 'ball
back to Columbia. The exact time wil
;be announced later. Th-e usuial ad

for the State inter-collegiate basket
