IN SECOND PLACE
Rock Island Loses to Peoria in
Final of Basketball Tourna
ment at Oak Park.
PLAYED BRILLIANT GAMES
Boys Defeated Oak Park in Semi
Finals, and Evanston and LaSalle
In - the Preliminaries.
Rock Island high school lost the
basketball championship of the Illinois
High School Athletic association ' to
Peoria In a well played game for. the
final title in the tournament at Oak
Park Saturday evening. The score
was 4S to 29. Rock Island's showing
was a most agreeable surprise here,
for the team had as its opponents
some of the best high school basket-
ball fives in the state, defeating Oak
Park, Evanston and LaSalle. and
finally losing to Peoria. Even in the
final game the showing of the boys
from Rock Island was unexpectedly
good from the local point of view, as
in the two contests played earlier in
the season with the Peoria boys,-the
local team was defeated, by an over
whelming score, the Distillers on one
occasion piling up some 70 points. In
all the 'record made by the boys at
Oak Park is the source of great satis
faction to the students here.

was sprung when the Oak Park high
squad was put out of the running,
Rock Island being the medium of tnc
removal of, the last Chicago team to
remain in line for the first honor.
Rock Island showed a little better
team work than Oak Park and was
luckier in shooting for baskets."
The teams lined up as follows:

through the infusion of new blood

Strong Play, Strong Company.
"Kruetzer Sonata," seen at the Illinois
last night with Blanche Walsh In the
star role, is one of the most powerful
dramas that has been seen here this
season. Tho company Is well bal
anced and the many tragic passages
are brought out . with " tear-producing
realism. The climax comes just be
fore the final curtain when Miss
Walsh, as unhappy- Hattle Fiddler,
after bearing seemingly every trial
that flesh and soul can endure, shoots
down the sister who has wronged her
and her own faithless husband. To
enhance the realism of this enactment
Miss Walsh does not follow the stage
custom of firing the weapon in the air,
but aims direct at her targets and the
burning wads can be seen falling
from their clothing. The possibilities
of a real tragedy keep the audience
rooted to their seats till the curtain
is down for good.
At the Famijy, One of the events
in Rock Island's theatrical annals is
the inauguration today of a big musi
cal produceion at the Family theater.
The play is "The Passing Show."
There are scores of girls, pretty, frisky
end laughing Indian maids, charming
southern beauties and the real "Osh
kosh girls," who keep eyes and ears
busy with pretty gyrations and music.
George X. Wilson is the author of the
book and music. Miss Pauline Field

the leading part. Among the other
principals are Roland Fischer, Dave
Lewis and others. -
