The game opens at 8:15 and will
be preceded by a preliminary be

Simonis of last years squad
available with Cody, F. Cossack ,A.
Cossack, J. Cossack, Remington, M
Johnson, Plorek and S. Johnson also

eventually the most effective is
used in the tournament which
decides who shall represent this
district at the state tournament.

Cafferty graduated last year and
only tene will teQ whether the nee
tes» will p os se s s the seme fighting
and fast passing qualities as the old

several fears and will doubtless give
a good account of themselves.
The game Saturday night will be
fast snd interesting.
