Several from the Seve nth Grade who have been absent on account of sickness, have resumed their work.

On Thanksgiving morning the Deming High School Basket Ball team, accompany ed by quite a crowd of good rooters, went to Sil ver City to meet the New Mexico Normal School Basket Ball team. Well, we came, we saw, they con quered. We have only two excuses to of fer, The inexperience of our team and the high latitude which told on our girls greatly towards the end of the game. The Silver girls are certainly to be praised for their fast team. We are are not at all dis couraged but rather encouraged and feel that with a month or two of good practice and hard work, we can show them what Deming really can do. After the fact thai the Silver City girls boasted that they would win by a score of about 20 to 0, we feel proud of the score 5 to 10. Notwithstanding the size of their girls and the fact that they were a more experienced team, we tied them twice in the first half. The first half was half over before we allowed them to score at all, then we followed them closely, the score at the end of the first half, being 4 to 6 in their favor. There isn't much to say about the second half, except, that they gained five points while we gained but one. The High School boys certainly did show the Tigers a surprise, when they played all aruund them, Thanksgiving at the ball park. The final score was 0 to 0; but that does not tell of the playing of the High School boys. The Deming Tigers outweighed the High School boys nearly twenty pounds to the man, but certainly did lack the practice and speed of the High School boys. The ball was in the Tigers' territory most all the game. The nearest the Tigers had the ball to the High Schools' goal was 10 yards, while the High School had the ball on the 2i yard line, and would have scored a touchdown if Cooper had not been penalized 15 yards for shoving, Long tried five attempts for a field goal; but on the account of the soft ness of the ball, his attempts were unsuccessful. Carter had only one chance for the Tigers and he missed that by 15 feet. Sam Watkins played the star game for the Tigers: while for the High School everyone put up an unusually good game. standing above everything was James Winters' wonderful tackle of Rodolf, who had secured the ball on the Tigers' 30 yard line and dashed down the field with Winters close on his heels, James got him on the High School five yard line, with one of the finest tackles made on the Deming field.
