As in days long gone cy. No's. 39
and 40 will be discontinued between
Seneca and Broken Bow, effective the
15th. This will throw one more Alli
ance division crew out of work as one
crew can handle this run from Broken
"Bow to Ravenna and return although
there is some talk of running a Lincoln
division crew and one Alliance division
crew through from Lincoln to Broken
How and return. In either case the
turn will be a preferred run and many
no doubt will place bids for the posi
tion. "Bill" Cunnigham still swears that
every one who ever dispatched trains
out of Alliance has a grudge against
him. Only two stock pickups were
Tun out of Seneca last week and he
drew them both. However, he says he
never was bashful and his favorite
pastime is, as always, getting on the
dispatchers' phone and telling them
about it, not generally in beautiful
language but its always "forceful."
On account of the discontinuance of
Wo's. 39 and 40 between Uroken uow

There will be a number of good
games at the high school gym during
the next week for Hyannis will play
here on Saturday the 11th and Bridge
port here on Tuesday the 14th. Bayard
with one of the fastest teams in west
ern Nebraska will play on Friday the
ith. While the Alliance boys took
the measure of the beet pickers once
before they gave them a stiff game and
will probably do it again. Hyannis
has been defeated but once this being
by Alliance during the holidays when
the locals were on their annual trip,
Bridgeport has done little this year
and Coach Prince will probably give
some of his reserves a chance to show
what they can do. With three games
scheduled which promise to be as fast
as these the people of Alliance should
surely turn out to see them, there
will also be irood preliminaries to each
of the games, the first being the his
toric scrap between the bmerson and
Central Krade srirl3 and the second be
tween the A. H. S. girls' second team
and the Antioch crirls. The prelimin
ary for the Bayard game has not as
yet been definitely decided.
Let's get together on some name to
call our honored rivals. Scottsbluff
has often been affectionately referred
to as the Beet Pickers, but why not
confine this name to Bayard and call
the Scottsbluff aggregation the Irriga
tors, which name was applied to the
late Scottabluff baseball club. The
Sidney team might be referred to as
the Highwaymen as their little village
is located on the Lincoln highway, but
out of courtesy we will refrain from
that Our local team will undoubtedly
be bubbed the Zebras due to their
present taste in socks. The main thing
however is to agree on something. The
Scottsbluff team has been styled Bear-
The controversy over a free throw at
the Sidney irame Friday brintrs back
to the minds of some of the older
basketball fans the Sidney-Alliance
game of 1912, which was played at
Sidney. At the end of the game the
Alliance coach maintained that the
game was a tie and that an extra
five-minute period should be played.
The Sidney coach, on the other hand.
was just as certain that bidney had
won by one point The altercation
grew hotter and hotter, until the play
ers and the crowd joined in. Finnlly
a number of the spectators decided
that the best way to settle the argu
ment was to clean up the Alliance
team, and they proceeded to do it with
disastrous results to the said Alliance
team. After the smoke had cleared
away, Martin Nolan, one of the Al
liance forwards, was found to be a
sorry-looking wreck and medical at
tention was required to return him to
his former health and beauty. Need
less to say, the game was never fin
ished and the mystery of whether the
score was a tie or whether it was one
point in favor of Sidney was never
as to when and where the conference
games between Chappell and Alliance
would be played. The board decided
that Chappell should play at Alliance
March 4 and Alliance should play at
Chappell February 9; that each Wm
should pay iU own expenses; and it
was further decided that Shellenbrrg
oi me university or Nebraska should
referee both games. The expenses of
Shcllenberg, the referee, who liva at
Potter, will be paid bv each of thft
teams, the board decided.
