OVER YOUNGSTERS ON DIXIELAND TRIP
Defeat for the high school was the
result of last evenings game with
the Augustana Reserves, the Luther
tns winning by the score of 46 to
1. The game was played before a
email cromd at the college gym, and
though slow, was not as uneven a9
the score Indicates. The high school
toys were In better form than they
have been in for some time, and
though handlcaped by the absence of
Tremann, Neussill and Pratt from
the lineup, they made a very credit
able showing againEt their older and
heavier opponents. The early part
of the battle was even, but near the
close of the first period the Reserves
gradually drew away from the high
school and by the end of the session
they had a lead of 11 points, 22 to
11. The collegians threw basket
after basket in the second half and
kept a safe lead, though the high
bchool team worked hard to hold

Harry Anderson was responsible
for most of the scores registered by
the Reserves, throwing a total of 10
field baskets, while Erie Anderson,
lit forward, ran him a close second
with IS points to his credit. Rudllus,
Playing the other forward, tallied
five field goals, but was off on throw
ing foul throws as he failed to send
any through the hoop In seven
Fay Reeves, the high school for
ward, made most of the high school's
points on foul throws, but made
but one field basket, which was
lareely due to the excellent guarding
of Iluligren. lllnkley was right in
the game every minute and got two
field baskets to his credit, while Cap
tain Behnamann also tallied two.

The Bachelors climbed back into the
lead of the Semi-Pro league last night
by defeating the Cuba In two out of
three games of the series. It was the
first time In many moons that the Cubs
lost the bigger number of games In a
series. The boys were a little off color
last night and failed to land them in
the groove after the first game result,
defeat. For some reason or other, the
Stock Leaders and Plow City teams
failed to leave their scores where they
could be located this morning, and the
suspicion that some records low ones
were broken is abroad. The scores

round bouts at Kenosha between Pack

promoters held a long conference. As
a result the Kelly-McGoorty bout has
been postponed from March 18 to
March 20, while the McFarland Burns
encounter will be staged, as scheduled,
on March 15. The managers and pro
moters agreed that two bouts in four
days would be two great a drain on
the pocketbooks of local fans, so th
middleweights agreed to the later
date. Marty Forkius, acting manager

Those who will endeavor to put Rock

The first two men will pair for the dou

Oren will not compete in that event.

AT THE GRAND.
C. Haddon Chambers' play "Passers
By," as presented by Charles Frohman
at the Grand, Davesport, last night,
was one of the most satisfactory the
atrical productions offered in the tri-
cities this season. It is put on by an
all-star cast and the story it tells holds
the interest of the hearer from begin
ning to end. Richard Bennett, as
Peter Waverton, the bachelor mil
lionaire around whom the play re
volves, gives a wonderfully good inter
pretation of the difficult character.
Julian Royce plays the part of Pine,
Peter's valet, A. G. Andrews Is Nighty,
a London cabby philosopher, Ernest
Lawford is Samuel Burns, a "withered
bough'' and man of the gutter, Louise
Rutter takes the part of Margaret
Summers, the mother of little Peter,
son of Peter Waverton, of whose exist
ence he knows nothing until the child
is SO years of age; Ivy Hersog is I-ady
Hurley, forster sister of Peter; Kather
ine Florence Is Miss Beatrice Dainton,
Peter's fiancee, and Norris Millington i
is little 'Peter. There is not once
throughout the play the sign of medioc
rity on the part of any one player, and
in fact it would be hard to improve on
them in any one particular. There are
four acts and but one scene, Peter's
apartments in Piccadilly, and this is
beautifully staged. The play drew one
of the largest houses of the season.
CHICAGO OPERA HOUSE.
"The Trail of the Uncscme Pino,"
Eugene Walter's dramatization of John
Fox's widely read story of the same
name, opened at the Chicago opera
house Sunday night to a crowded
house and there is every indication
that it will have a long and prosperous
run. Direct from the New Amsterdam
theatre. New York, it is the laii-st as
well as one of the most magnificent
productions made by Klaw & Erlau- j -
ger, and since its premiere with Char-1 1,
lotte Walker a few months ago it has
met with tremendous success, playing
to crowded houses at New York, wh'.-re :
the production has held the stage for j
the last four weeks. Eugene Walter, I
j the dramatist of the book, has fol-1
lowed the scenes as they were laid :
in the original story by Mr. Fox with i
fidelity, though he has written a new
play rather than confined himself to a
dramatization in its strictest sense.
The character of June has been em-,
phasized and thcs who followed the j
wild mountain girl in the book, and ;
her kin folk, including her jealous
cousin Dave, the rough yet sincere !
and affectionate father, Judd Tclliver, t
the simple and humorous Cm-.'e Billy
Bean, the primitive old Hun with hsr
pipe of clay, the strong and manly
Hale and the gentle Bcikley, will revel
in the visualization of the stage char
acters and the pictures cf the moun
taineers' household which are all
strikingly impressive by the nobility
and breadth of their portrayal. Klaw !
Erlanger have srared neither pains, j
expense nor artistic ability to give "The
Trail of the Lonesome Pine"" a truly i
splendid production, in fact it is ad
mitted that it ia seldom that a nlav '
has been given as elaborate a scenic
setting as tftis play has; you see what
you imagined in the book; the high,
encircling purple mountains fading lu
the distance with the foremost peaks
touching the lofty sky; the valley
with tilt1 winding trail and lone pine
bowing in homage to the passing of
the royal wind and the mountain
brook's silver glt-am; also that In the
scenes of each of the four acts there
is range and variety, graceful, light
ness, delicacy of fancy, tenderness
and sweetness, the charm of happy in
vention and the splendor of glorious
creation. Charlotte Walker plays
June, the romantic girl who through
out her youth has revelled in the tun
tainted atmosphere of a primitive
mountain home. Klaw & Erlanger
have provided Miss Walker with a
strong and capable company of play
ers, including W. S. Hart, Austin
Webb, George Woodward, Richard
Sterling, Willard Robertson, Lillian
Dix, Violet Reed and others.
