The fast Clinton high school banket
hall five Invaded Rock Inland last eve
ning and handed out defeat to the lo
cal high quintet, winning by the score
of 38 to 25. The game was hard and
desperately fought, but was marred by
roughness, especially on the part of the
visitors. Had the local players been
able to make foul throws with greater
regularity they might have won, for In
all the officials called a total of 25
fouls against the Iowa boys. The Clin
ton team started out with a rush, and
pot. an early lead, which they main
tained until the final whistle was
sounded, although tbe locals at times
pressed them hard, especially In the
second half, when they were within
cne point of tying up the score.

The count at the conclusion of the
first session stood 18 to 13. and In the
s"cond period, with a changed line-up,
the high team took a brace, and for a
time outplayed their opponents, but it
proved to be only a spur, and the

Carl Morris, the Oklahoma fighter who Is still regarded as a possible
"hope" in splta of his defeat at the hands of Jim Flynn. is anxious to
jet another chance at the man who is to mix it with Champion Jack
Johnson In July.
"I wasn't In condition when he beat me beore," declares Morris.
"X don't offer this as an excuse only as a statem?nt of fact. "I'll flht
him anywhere, anyplace, and distance, for from $1.25 up. and I'll c've my

Showing a complete reversal of form
from their last contest with Davenport,
the local Y. M. C. A. came back strong
last night and took the Socials over
for a cleaning by a score of 26 to 15.
Evidently their defeat at the hands of
the Iowans had a good effect upon
them, as the boys went into the game
and fought from start to finish.
The new men. Dean and Swanson,
were tried out on the association team
and made good with a vengeance.
Dean at center held his opponent to
one field goal, while he slipped over
three himself. Swanson played a close
guard, and prevented his man from
annexing a single basket, while he reg
istered a couple to boost his own aver

forward, tried out at guard last night,
and played a strong game. As usual.

of a certain hue.
The steamship Syria, with a lot of
Indian coolies on board, struck on a
rock about twelve hours from Suva,
the capital of Fiji.
Dr. MacGregor, then acting colonial
secretary, organized a relief expedi
tion, clambered over a broken mast
that was tbe only path to the emi
grants and again and again returned
with a man or woman on his back
and sometimes a child, held by its
clothes between his teeth.
A man of vast physical strength.
MacGregor wanted it all for his final
feat. Down beiow on the reef was a ;
woman who had fallen overboard, bad j
got at the spirits and was mad with i
drink. The captain of tbe ship and a
police officer who bad gone after her
were being swept out to sea. Mac
Gregor slid down a rope, caught the
knot of the woman's hair in his teeth
and with his hands seized the two men
and dragged them both into safety.
He went back to Snva in a borrowed
suit of pajamas, having left all his
clothes and a good deal of bis skin on
the coral reef.
Modest, like many heroes, Mac
Gregor left himself out of his own re
port, and It was from the governor
that the queen first heard the whole
