The game started with a rush, Cottonwood making the first basket which brought the Cot tonwood fans to their feet in a unison and the noise that came forth from these 250 throats could l>e heard all over the city. The Nezperce team for a few minutes in the early stages of the game had the lead but this was soon overcome by the Cot tonwood boys and at no time war. the outcome of the contest in doubt after the first quarter. The first half ended with Cot tonwood leading by a score of 22 to 12. In the second half the Nezjierce boys appeared lost and their team work was poor. It was during this half that the local boys executed team work, keeping the ball in the air almost j continuously by clever passing.

This is the first time within the history of the local high school that they have been able to defeat Nezperce at basketball. Big Feature. Another feature, and one that was enjoyed was the yelling of the high school body under the leadership of their yell leader, Burdette Belknap. Between half they took possession of the liasket I «ill floor and for about ten minutes entertained the crowd present with their high school yells which brought forth much applause. The high school I spirit as well as the spirit of the town in general is exceptionally keen this year. Grangeville Tonight. The Cottonwood l>oys will play Grangeville tonight at the coun ty seat and the outcome of the contest will be watched with great interest here. Cottonwood defeated Grangeville two weeks ago on their local floor. A large number of persons will accompa ; ny the high school hoys to Grangeville tonight. Royally Entertained.

Did you ever see F red Simon excited ? We did Friday even ing. Barney Scubert is to Ik? given credit for one basket. While standing almost in the middle of the hall. Frank holding the ball was undecided what to do with it when Barney yelled "shoot it." I To his surprise it turned out to 1 l>e a perfect basket. 1 Sure we all saw Edward Hen nessey going home via the short est route after the game. Ed lost a few malted milks on the first basket. To date all of his lifts have been paid. At one time it looked like Rus sel Kendall and John Johann were acting in the capacity of umpire and referee. A little ex citai that was all. When it comes to yelling and jumping we believe the first prize should be awarded to some of our school teachers. They I surely did their share. The talk of the town has lieen "What will be the outcome of the game with Grangeville?" We know we are going to win. With sore throats galore after the game Friday evening, never theless who ever saw a happier bunch. The Nezperce l>oys were good loosers and not one word of com plaint was heard from them af ter the game. Big women, little women, all alike did their share of the noise making during the game. "To which class do I belong" asked the editor's wife. To the little ones of course was our reply. The refereeing of John Wag ner was entirely satisfactory to all and the game proceeded with only one interruption. Mr. and Mrs. William Simon and Mr. «and Mrs. Frank Simon gave a family Christmas dinner party of 18 covers at the William ; Simon home, Tuesday evening.
