Ti,.ren. •**'**£• High School Girl* in a Splendid exhibition of Basketball E Th e Ocala High school girls’ basket ball team accompanied by a numer of chaperones and rooters hied them gplves to the home town of the Duval Tigerenes last Saturday with every intention of lining up a second defeat against the fighting Tigerenes, whom they had defeated the previous Satur day at Ocala. However, the best of intentions sometimes go wrong and although at the end of the first halt of the game it looked, with the score 13 to 8 that they were going to be* successful, in the second half the Tigerenes “got in the game with a vengeance” and got their revenge for the good walloping administered to them in Ocala so the games now stand one for Ocala and one for Duval. The final score was 24 to 15. The Duval girls play a much rough er game than do the Ocala girls, and for considerable “over guarding” and holding the Ocala players they had a great many fouls called on them (and justly) by the referee, Miss Louise Spencer, which the Tigerenes and the Duval fans seemed to resent severely but Miss Spencer’s decisions to one not unbiased were correct and quitd impartial. f i ■ The Times-Union gives the follow ing excellent write-up of Saturday’s game: Both Tigers and Tigerenes placed their teeth into the basketball last nigh' at the Duval county armory and defected Waycross and the Ocala “Will Cats” in two rip-roaring games of ball. The first engagement of the even ing was between the Tigerines and Wild Cats, and both names are very appropriate for the sextets. The Tige-ine3 finally emerged the winners by the rather close score of 24 to 15. The Tigerines % had a few fouls call ed on them and the writer is frank jn stating that the Tigerines play basketball more on the order of the man’s game and this, while not detri mental to their knowledge of the £ame, does hurt them to a certain ex tent in having fouls called on them. The entire first half of this heated battle was Qcala’s, all the way. The Wild Cats, h&eded by Miss Christine Close, the sextet’s star guard, waded through the first half by a score of 13 to 8. Everyone must admit that Ocala has a good team and if there rests a doubt about their fine, machine I’d like to the doubt is. The sensational- wont of Mary Stubbs for the Tigerenes brought home the bacon for old Duval—with out her presence in this game the Tigerenes would have been humbly defeated. There never was such a large crowd of fans present at a basketball game in this city as last night. Fully eight hundred rabid fans wailed and rooted for the Red and White teams, and for a while the hopes of victory for the Tigerenes looked mighty but dark clouds which hung high over head readily disappeared and a bright ray of sunshine came creeping in as the Tigerenes were making their game uphill struggle. The fans waited patiently and all of a sudden the speedy Tigerenes started to get into real action, and during the second half of play the Wild Cats were played completely off their feet. Something must have struck the building during the second half for the fans and Tigerenes were certainly raising some thing more than “Cain.” Ocala as a Sextet Ocala, as a sextet, is a most effec tive machine, and to their coach, who ever she may be. certainly deserves *ords of credit for the fine team 'which she has developed. Estelle Wilkes, at forward for Ocala is a real star, and the machine which •he plays on can thank themselves or this player’s presence in the line up. , Cystine Close, at forward for \ 2T ala ‘ featured f or the Wild Cats. Thir young lady threw four field goals and had five foul goals to her credit, jliss Close is particularity a star at nasket throwing and as for her guard w ork. better could not have been ex pected of her.

Ocala is very glad to welcome Mr. Swerianger and his lovely little family to our city. •• • • Delightful Dance at the Country Club / Always Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Camp are. delightful hosts, so on Friday night there was a ready response to their invitations for a dance. They entertained especially for their daugh ter, Miss Nettie Camp, and her two visitors, the Misses Gozdecke of New York, and Mrs. Wolfe, the attractive guest of Mrs. Jack Camp. The club house, both up stairs,* in the ball rooih, and in the tea room and smoking rooms and down stairs, were made most attractive by the ad dition of a few decorations. In the ball room, there ivere quantities of different colored balloons floating around every where. Mr. and Mrs. Camp greeted their guests most informally, Mrs. Camp was most attractive in a lovely black gown with bead trimmings. Miss Nettie Camp was as pretty as a picture, wearing and orange color ed dress. Miss Goedecke wore black over silver, and Miss Winifred Goedecke wore black over cloth of gold and Mrs. Wolf’s pretty dancing frock was of nile green. Receiving with the honor guests •were, Mr. Alfred Mac Kay, Mr. Joe Borden, Mr. Norton Davis and Dr. Carlisle Izlar. A grand march was led by Mr. Nor ton Davis, who danced with Mrs. Wolfe and many were the pretty figures that they introduced. Danc ing was then started and continued until a late hour. The pretty music was furnished by a three piece, •k-chestra and was full of “pep” and made the 'dancing very pretty and easy. AH during the evening the most cooling and delightful punch was served by Mrs. W. W. Harriss. • During the intermission the guests were invited down stairs into the din ing room, where refreshments were served. Of all the lovely dances given at the country club none have ever been *iore thoroughly enjoyed than was this one given on Friday in honor of such attractive visitors. Too Many Social Butterflies Senator Capper of Kansas in his weekly newspaper says that more than 175.000 children were brought before courts in this country during the old year, as offenders. What American youngsters need is the bringing up, their fathers and mothers had—regular duties at home, steady attendance at school. Sunday school once a week, very little spend ing money, time and opportunity for wholesome play but none for loafing, some real work to do every day, rea sonable wishes gratified if the family pprse permits, knowledge of the value of money and of the not infrequent 'necessity of self-denial. Many homes nowadays are not rearing children to be sturdy, self-de pendent men and women, but social butterflies. And the more they are indulged the more they want. Few of them are taught enough about real life to stand alone w'hen the time* comes that they must. • Mr. Ted Davis of Cincinnati, Ohio, is in Ocala spending a while as a guest of his sisters. Mrs. C.
