Dullness of Christmas day was brok. en at tho Barre .bowling alley by the rivalry and bitter contention between Wills WllUand Workers and Bane's Best Bowlers. . Reports coming from the affair are more or less mixed. Some claim that because it was a clear day there was a big crowd. Others maintain that be cause there was a big crowd it was a clear day. The Wprkers won two of the three games. Through taking advantage of a shift in tho line of the Workera grabbed a victory. The honors of nlay go to Bowman, Lynn, Williams, Smoke and Jess Lamson.

CiSTMAS Bill : STIRS GAME DEVOTEES STATE CHAMPS imd HIGIT T EAM IN HUT WEST New Team Ghrei-Last Sea ih'i Stirs Hectic CHAMPS GAIN VERDICT BY 2 TO 21 SCORE CoachNewanafc Five Shows . EanyvfctOf Another FmoOniftfet (By Fred llayea) Basketball fans who hare brn gravely ccaccmed orer the possiailitj that the rebuilt high school door team of this season -could ha only an apol ogy for and a shell of thr vender fire that carried the banner o tlie orange and black, to unprecedented heights last season can dismiss their doubts and fears oa the subject. It will be safe to say that the com posite opinion of the several hundred fans nho attended the opening cage fiasco of the season Saturday night and gave Coach, Newman's latest bas ketball accessions the ocular analy-j ArrayMl against Ml Vernon high In her first local appearance was, about the most impoiing opponent that could be secured, the members of which most local fans have some recollections of seeing some place be fore. They are best Known as the scholastic champs of Ohio. Illinois. Nebraska. Sooth Dakota, etc Before the game, many were of the belief that this year's hopes would suffer tembly in comparison when, pitted against the scintillating court crew that-made las? Season so epochal In a vicinity not entirely unknown to focal followers or to tho good basketball citizens of such inunicipalitfea as Rockford, Sutton, Yankton and Dela ware. Well, tho champs w6n, but tier did not dismember their adveftgry as some predicted, but narrowly escaped being subjugated themselves. The score was 23 to 21. Close and Hard Fauflht If the high school basketeers were embarrassed in the presence of the venerable champs, there was no oat- ward manifestation. Perhaps the nov elty of the thing had worn off some what, because of the fact they had mingled with the champs in 30 or so skirmishes last year dories practice sessions. These subs and scrubs of last year, 'who had helped to boild up a championship team but who had received many knocks but few cheers in return, had now graduated to regu lars and again were engaging their friendly enemy. And by the way. how could the scrub team of a year a'o stack up against the best quintet in the universe 50 or 60 times (the Kentucky Blue Devils excepted, per haps) without absorbing some of the qualities that made that team? That is food for thought as the thinker, not the sport writer, would say. For intensity and excitement, it is doubtful whether the contest Satur day night will be equalled this sea son, to say nothing of being surpassed. It uas the evenest kind of a race over the whole route, and only a seer coald have determined the ultimate winner. Usual! vi onljra point or two separated the two fives.
