"Hello, Bill. Did you enjoy the
minstrel last night?"
If the answer was not In the af
firmative, that particular Bill to
whom the question was addressed
must have been in a nonenjoyable
raood, for the performance was full
of good, wholesome entertainment
from beginning to end. Participants
in It were members of Lodge No. 298,
B. P. O. E Davenport, as well as a
few of the friends ot the order. The
only Islanders who took part in the
lerformance was O. B. Hampton and
he is performing with the black face
bunch In Davenport and Moline as
well. It was a keen disappointment
to the audienre that "Dad" Wendell
and Louie Harms did not appear as
end men on this side of the creek.
for the former would have been a
lively entertainer with a fund of good
Jokes. And who is there who will
deny that Louie would have been the

College Girls' Basketball Teams
in Hotly Contested Game
at Local Gym.
13 TO 10 IS THE RESULT
Augustana Players Start Out With a
Rush and Gain a Lead Which
Is Held Throughout.
William and Vashtl co-eds of Aledo
met defeat at the hands of Augustana's
quintet of girls last night by a score
of 15 to 10 in the local gymnasium.
The battle was hotly contested, and
It was only the fact that the Lutherans
played a more scrappy game that gave
them victory. The local girls have now
participated in three contests this sea
son end won all of them. A return
game will be played with William and
Vashtl next week at Aledo.
Augustana started out with a rush
and had things its own way for a few
minutes. Miss Agnes Abrahamson, the
brilliant Lutheran center, starred, send
ing the ball through the hoop twice
and breaking up the team play of her
opponents in an effective manner. The
latter part of the half the Aledo co-eds
threatened the local five, but Augus
tana's guards came to the rescue and
kept Vashtl from scoring. The half
ended Augustana 12, Vashtl 6.
SLOWER IX SECOND HALF.
Because of the fact that both fives
played such a hard game the first per
iod, playing was perceptibly slower in
the second half. Although the Augus
tana girls had many chances to shoot
goals, they only secured one field
basket, as did also Vashtl. The Misses
White and Pittenger for the Aledo girls
gave a good exhibition of passing this
half, and they also played strong de
fensively. The lineup:
Augustana Agnes Abrahamson, cen
ter; Misses Fraser and Ebba Abra
hamson, forwards, and Misses Dahl

After the girls' game, a fast tilt be
tween the seni 3 and commercials was
the former team winning by a
score of 24 to 15. Playing was fast
and rough on both sides. The commer- j
cials outplayed the theologians the
first half. Berger, center for the busi
ness men, played a strong game this
half, pushing the ball into the basket
five times. The half ended with the
commercials leading. 15 to 8. Led by
Captain Ryden. the theologians, infus
ed with new blood, made a wonderful
spurt the second period and completely
swept their opponents off their feet.
The commercials did not score a point.
The defensive work of P. Vic Swen
son, who was switched from forward
to center this half, featured. Lyndon
was the best point-getter, registering
six field goals. When the smoke had
cleared, it was found that the theologs
had made 16 points this half and the
commercials none. The lineup:

Your old friends. Uncle Tom and
Little Eva, will be here tonight at the
Illinois. The Stetson company is send
ing the production here, and it prom
ises to be up to the standard main
tained for years by that concern.
Next Sunday evening the Illinois
will offer one of the most importaut
of its bookings for the entire season,
the attraction being Charles Klein's
notable drama of absorbing heart in
terest. "The Gamblers." which comes
j to this city following a record run of
2'i0 performances at Maxine Elliott's
theatre. New York. This play is cred
ited with having made a more lasting
Impression and created a greater sen
sation than any theatrical attraction I
! since "The Third Degree" and "The
Lion and the Mouse," from the pen
of the same author, both of which
plays are memorable as the most wide
ly witnessed offerings of this genera
tion. The Authors' Producing com
pany, of which Jchn Cort Is president,
has selected a uniformly balanced act
ing organization to interpret "The
Gamblers." "Among the well .known '
members of the cast whose names add 1
interest to the engagement are:
Charles Matkay, Lillian Kemble, who
are supported by Cecil Kitigstone, Ar
thur L. Rankin, Franklyn George, Gid

ager Dolly. It is headed by the Five
Musical Lassies and that act is a cork
ing good one. The members of the
troupe play several selections, using
violins and different sorts of horns.
The harmony produced in their ren
dition of ragtime music and their abil
ity to play their classical numbers
make it one of the strongest acts seen
here this year. Added to all of the
charms produced by the act Itself,
there are some scenic effects that are
real good. Davis & Walker were
delayed while enroute to Rock Island
but arrived in time for last night's
performance. Their act Is "A Dancing
Lesson." "The" Aviator Girl" furnishes
a spectacular novelty, flying out over
the audience, the while singing that
little ditty entitled "Come Take a Trip
In My Flying Machine." Jane Elton
and Miss Edmonds put on short sing
ing and talking acts. Miss Edmonds
furnishes an extra number for the bill.
Ellet brothers open the program with'
a horizontal bar act and most of their
stunts are thrillers. There are two
new films of motion pictures.

made this company famous.
