THE ALLIANCE HERALD, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 1922.
TIIREU J SPORTS The hifrh school basket ball team returned Saturday evening from their trip after defeating1 Chappell, the league leaders 28 to 17 and Oshkosh 34 to 16. In both frames Dailey led the orinjr making 12 points all from the floor in each frame. Chappell the team which was formerly undefeated has now lost one frame the same as Alli ance but still leads as they have played two more frames than the locals. The locals will have another frame with Chappell here on the last frame of the reason. The local's hardest remaining jrame, however, will be with Sidney at Sidney a week from Friday on the 24th. Oshkosh was not expected to put up a very tough fight and the score would indicate that they did not.

While the game was scheduled for the first team Coach Prince -did not put his first stringers in until three minutes before the final gun. Although they gained two points on the Hvannis basketeers they did not have sufficient time to get started and Hvannis was one point in the lead when the mixup was over. The sec ond team played a remarkably good game all thrugh until shortly before the final whistle when they went to pieces and allowed Hyannis several baskets and a lead which the first team was unable to overcome. Coach Prince did not wish to play his first men as this would undoubtedly have made a one sided game, Hyan nis having been defeated once before by a topheavy score. The summary: Alliance 8 ft C.

Coach Prince promises that if the game becomes one sided he will play his second team and even things up, while on the other hand if the second team becomes in danger of losing the game he will put in the first team which should also please the fans. Bridgeport should not put up a very stiff game although the locals are capable of anything at times and Coach Prince may have to put in the second team to save the game. On Friday the Beetpickers from Bay ard will play here and should make a fast game as no team this year has beat them without playing real bas ket ball. Alliance is now. in second place in the conference instead of third as be fore as a result of Sidney's defeat by Gering Saturday night. Sidney copped the bacon in a hard fought game the night before from Scottsbluff 15-lb. Chappell is still in the lead although defeated by Alliance because they have played more games than the locals i 1 I though each has lost one game, kid ney is third with Gering fourth. Scottsbluff will come next with Bayard Oshkosh and Bridgeport in order. The irame which will probably decide the championship are the Alliance-Sidney tame at Sidney, the Alliance-Chappell game at Alliance and the Sidney Chap pell game at Sidney. Back in 1913 Sidney worked a stunt on the Alliance team that has since remained a classic to all the followers of basket ball. The Sidneyites were to play at Alliance and according to the usual custom went into the gym in the afternoon to practice, alone of course as they would not have anyone to spy on them. Later in the afternoon an Alliance player went into the gym noticed a pecuiar shine to the floor. Upon close examination it was found that the floor was waxed and strive though they did the Alliance players veie unable to remove the wax from ing to be a shy damsel who was talk ing with a young man with a high forehead, relates the Scottsbluff Star Hendd. - "She's trying to crab the whole show," one of the irate girls ex claimed. "How do you make that out?" in quired a new-comer who had just Joined the circle, "Why, here we are selling kisses at a dollar apiece, and she's bootlegging them free in that hallway. A certain postoffice employe is somewhat shy on hirsute covering, which, freely translated, means that he hasn't as much hair on his head as some people have. The other after noon, shortly after the mail was dis tributed, a couple of Fairview patrons drew nigh the window, Ihe man with the shining pate was holding an earnest conversation with a young lady, who was giving him, not heart counsel, but advice on hair restora tives. The Fairview men heard but one ouestion: "Have you used So-and So's?" "Yes." he said, sadly, "but I didn't like it it's too sticky." Wonder if that wouldn't be a pi'etty good brand to drink? Nebraska City, under martial law, is becoming quite civilized. The night police there actually have undertaken to enforce the law against smoking in cafes and restaurants. If some people could be in two places at once, opines an astute colum nist, both places would be at the pic ture show. THE PASSING.SHOW. "Didja see the valentine he got for teacher?

Workman, 54, laborer, father of f itfeen children, wept when brought before Judge M. Newman in police court. He was charged with drunkeneness. "This is my first offense in six years," moaned Workman. Judge Newman wiped a tear from his eye, "Dismis sed," he shouted . "A man with a family of fifteen has a right to get drunk every six years." The poetical fever is making fright ful inroads among the profession in Nebraska. The Scottsbluff Star-Herald has two contribs, either of whom could give Leo or Gatenby cards, spades and little casino, and still beat the tar out of them at the rhyming game: I asked her if she rolled them, She said she'd never tried.

W'hit perhaps will prove to be the greatest day, in the life of nt Vsst three young people, if not in the life of the church took place last Sunday when three offered themselves to the ministry and missionary work, ha their life work. They were Winifred Tib bits, Harold Clark and John fiinort. The two young men declr '.hat they feel that the Ixrd has eallod them to that work, the young lady says that she is willing to go wherever the Lord chooses. She feels that the missionary field will be her part in life, and that she will seek the necessary training which she is through high school. The boys sav th same. It is a great th'ng for young people to choose their field j of labor, for at this time the) shortage of missionary and ministerial students is great. Several more young ladies, ar praying over this meeting. The! pastor has three more boys, and our sincere prayers are that ine i-oru win call all in the ministry or other form of christian work. He cornea from a line of priests, and now he would like to establish a line of Baptist preachers. To that end we ar bending our e ffort. Both crowd were large Sunday, ire evening especially so. Our need for room is felt, the evening service vns two-thirds men, and the singing wus unusunlly good from the congregation, with the help of the orchestra our services have improved greatly. The pastor has now fourteen boys taking boxing instructions on Saturday evening. It is his wish to have every boy in the Sunday school and church to take theae instructions. Sometime in the near future he will have an ex hibition in which a number of th by will box. The instruction is alon thm latest scientific lines. Already w have some promising material. No boy will be allowed to take lessonm who doe not attend Bible school and churcn. Self-control is the chief feat ure of the instruction . The bojr who loses his temper Is sent home.
