High School Was Defeated by K. V.
Freshmen 4 to 1.
The Abilene high school baseball
team met Its first defeat In a fast
eame of ball Saturday at Lawrence,
the Kansas University Freshmen ag
gregation geting the big end of the
score which was 4 to 1. Abilene
made Its lone score In fourth Inning;
Sommers led to bat and gained first
by an infield hit; D. Eisenhower then
slapped the pill over third for a
single advancing Sommers to second,
Ed. Elsenhower followed and biffed a
hot one to third, who fumbled the
ball, scoring Sommers.
Throneh two costly errors by Adi-
lene's outfield the Freshman made
their wlnnini scores. Abilene played
an excellent game but could not wield
the big stick as timely as the Fresh
men. Merrifield's fielding on snort
was a feature and McDonell had the
rah-rah boys bewlldared the greater
part of the game with his twisters.

It followed an assault which Car
ter made on Dr Ready, who was
engaged with a patient at the time.
The patient was Private Osborne, a
soldier from Fort Riley. Osborne
witnessed the shooting as well as the
assault. Dr. Readr notified the of
ficers ot the shooting and gave him
self up.
Carter's condition .is dangerous
but not necessarily fatal.
Late this afternoon a charge ft
shootina- with Intent to kill was made
against Dr. Ready and he was admit
ted to bond in the sum ot $5,000.
The bond was readily given.
Dr. Ready has made no statement
concerning the matter, except to Mr.
Roark. and the only Information
about lt comes from Private Osborne
ot battery D, Sixth field artillery,
who was the only witness to the
Bhooting. Osborne made a state
ment to Mr. Roark in which the es
sential points are about as follows:
Osborne was in the chair in ur.
Ready's offices, having some dental
work dons'. Shortly after 3 o'clock
Carter came In and began to abuse
Ready for sending him a bill for
work done, claiming that the bill
was for more than he owed.
Dr. Ready replied that there
might be a mistake and asked tne
man to come in later, when he was
not so buBy. Carter Bald that he had
rpipinta and Dr. Ready rejoined that
if he would bring them in tomorrow
they would go over them.
According to Osborne, Carter then
struck Ready twice in the face, one
blow bringing blood and Degan
