GAME OF THE SEASON
DOUGLAS. Nov. 5.?After playing
a whirlwind game during the first halt
of the game last night at the Naiator
ium, the Store team was unable to
stand'the pace set by the Mexican
machine and lost the game by a score
of 30 to 20. The contest was a gruel
ling one. The score was 16 to 13 in
favor of the Mexican at the end of the
first half, but from the beginning of
the second it was plainly seen that
the Store team was "all in." How
ever they must be given credit for
the fight they kept up until the end.
