L. C. H. S. Lions "Champs"
The LCHS basketball team really
went over the top when they
brought both the. Conference Trophy
and the Championship Trophy to
Eureka. They won a smashing vic
tory in a hard fought game over
Libby, Saturday night in a sensa
tional comeback ending with a score
of Eureka 48, Libby 44. The Lions
astonished the Terriers with a daz
zling first period attack for 24
points in a spectacular scoring
spree, to gain a lead which they
held throughout the final game, j
The Lions had lost to Libby the
night before with a score of 38-46, ;
and was forced to play Poison Sat
urday morning before the final
game with Libby. Our boys played
with the energy and speed of a
fresh team and was more than Lib
by could stop.
The Columbia Falls basketball
gym was filled to capacity. Each
team was supported by their home
town and the Eureka section went'
wild when the Lion Champs cap
tured both trophies.
Captain Gwynn was awarded the
well earned prizes by the team,
and the broad smiles of the boys
and Coach Buckley were well worth
the trip just to see. The proud
coach will take his team to Ana
conda for the State meet in March.
The Lions not only won two tro
phies this year, to add
but are instrumental in the plac
ing of a New Electric Score Board
j
to our school
in the LCHS gym. The team has
f th ° two sollcitors - Tom E. Price
and John McKenzie in raising the
- mone y to buy the score board. The
score board has been ordered
( will be installed as soon as it can!
be obtained. A list of all donators
j and their donations will be pub
lished in the near future.

Progressive fanners have often l>een heard to call
their telephones "li: io stretchers." Wo guess they
say this because by telephoning they can get things
done in minutes that would otherwise take hours.
Erticicnt rural telephone service is vital to «very
farmer—and we arc working with all possible speed
to make I lie iitiesl service available for everyone.
