end of the first half- Coming back
after the intermission the Bobcats
played whirlwind ball for the first
few minutes and won a lead that was
never headed throughout the game.
McCarren won three points by making
free throws. The Bobcats showed a
tendency to take long chances and
did not work the ball down the floor
as well as they should, the Miners
being easily superior to them in this
respect. The local team seemed to
tire after their spurt at the beginning
of the second half and appeared to be
out of condition.
lu the second game Hollister broke
into the scoring column with the first
basket, to be followed by Whitney and
later by Garvin. Butte scored one on
a free throw and then Kirchner, Land
wehr and Giulio each caged a field
basket, making the score 7 to 6 at
the end of the first half. At the
beginning of the second half Kirchner
came in strong with two field baskets

that brought the Miner lead up to
five points. McCarren put in a fw®
throw and a few minutes later both
he and Garvin each shot a basket,
tying the score. Landwehr connected
for two more points and then Hollis

length of the floor to tie the score
again. Soon afterwards McCarren
dropped the ball in from almost the

of the game and followed a minute

Bozeman! How beautiful art thou!
On the bights;—well toward theja
Zenith, where with colors
Ever changing, the circling
Mountains look down* upon
And ever smile, smile, smile
Not frown;—Happy BOZEMAN!
BOZE-MAN! A jewel fair, sits
On the heights;—up toward the
Zenith where towers the
Eternal hills, and varicolored
Mountains look down upon
And whose canyons pour forth
Nature's own panacea for man,
beast and earth.
Smiling she sits upon her
pedestal, overlooking the fertile
GALLATIN VALLEY, where horse,
And kind thrive, and man
Looks upon the fair land, and
Laughs in quiet contentment,
Always feeling grateful to
The All Father for setting his lines
In so peasant a spot, up! up! so
Near the sky, where Purity dwells
