NOT AS HEAVY
AS 1921 RECORD
Postoffice Mailing Falls Somewhat
Short. Christmas Cards More
Jr 1922 Christmas mailing at the
Willmar Postoffice did not come up
,- to the high record established last
year. The total weight o£ the mailing
done was somewhat below 1921. The
receipts at the windows are also less
than last year.
In the Christmas greeting cards
•,' however an increase was quite notice
able. Doubtless the parcels in num
ber equalled last years but their size
and weight was smaller. Folks did
not perhaps buy as expensive articles
or large sized goods. Smaller articles
of wear seem to have been the favor

A1WATER LOST TO
Atwater Leads Willmar Team at
End of First Quarter But Fails
to Keep up the Pace Set
Atwater lost to the high school
team at the local gym on Saturday
evening in a closely contested battle.
The game was perhaps the most in
teresting one for the spectators to
watch that has been played at the
local gym this season. Westgard and
Larson each had a chance to score
-for their team on fouls in the early
part of the game but they failed to
take advantage of the chance offer
ed them. Westgaard however soon
put in a basket and one free throw
which gave the home team a three
point lead. Atwater soon started
the ball rolling for their side and slip
ped in a basket and a foul. They
soon slipped in another field goal and
led Willmar 5 to 3 Tho Willmar

Atwater has a strong team this
year and as this was the first district
gatne, the locals had to fight hard in
order to keep their slate clear. Good
floor work and clever shooting by
Larson and Beise made them stand
out among the players, while the
stellar guard work of Johnson and
Ziehl kept the home team from run
ning up a large score. For Willmar
Westgard was the high point man,
•scoring seven field goals and four
free throws for a total of 18 of the
home team's 26 points. Westgard
made four of ten free throws.
