SCHOOL NOTES last week's basket ball games Both the girls'and the boys'basketball teams journeyed to Prosser last Friday where, before an audience of three hun dred rooters, they both went down to defeat. Tho girls' game ended the first half with a score of 15 to 10 in favor of Prosser, the last half 20-19 still in Prosser's favor. The larger field and "out of bounds" and the fact that it Is the first game that the girls have played on a foreign floor, makes the above score very satisfactory. The best of feelings prevailed between both teams during the game and afterwards. A splendid reception was enjoyed by all at the Pros'ser high school, and the teams parted in the best of friendly spirits The next day at Mabton in a rough game the Kennewick boys lost. The girls won on the home floor from the Grandview girls in the same sort of game, Saturday evening. The Kennewick grade team won by a wide margin from the Freshman team last Saturday night. The Freshies are not disheartened, how ever, and say that when they have fin- ished the return game, Friday evening, the 28th, the grade kids will be a minus quantity. Here's hoping. The record books of the high school show one hundred nineteen and one half days absence last month. It seems impossible to crowd one hundred nine teen days into twenty, doesn't it? There were also forty instances of tardiness. The average daily attendance is from eighty-five to ninety percent. No\v that spring is almost here, the attendance should be regular as there will not be any more bad weather. DEATH OF L. SPEEGLE As we go to press the news comes of the death of L.
