'llie costumes qnd antics of this quintet kept the whole house in an uproar during (Jie evening. When it comes lo play ing the part of bead waiter, and bossing a bunch of winches, we can recommend Bowery without reser vation as being the rig! it man in the right place. Just before tho gavel lapped lo announce Ihe end of this round ot pleasure. Pres. T. 11. Rixey said, 'Hank has a few words to say." Hank made a short, talk, setting forlh the things that the Rotary has accomplished under the able leadership of Pres. T. IL, bul spoilt I. II. s laurels by saying lhat the main inspiration which had caused him lo make such a success of his work was due lo the inspiration given him by his better half. Rank then proceeded lo tell Ihe Rolarians and their friends that Rolary elhics prevented Ihe Club from expressing its appreciation to its president thru the medium of a presen!, bul that Ihe present could, without vio lating Rotary ethics, be given to Mrs. T.

Then followed the ap ology and Ihe response by Mrs. T. II. Mr. T. 11. was so overwhelmed al the loss of her prize that her only reply was. "Rolarians, Rotaryaiins, and visitors, I intended lo make you ail acceplanco speech, showing my appreciation of the gift, but alas! my speech, like Ihe bowl, is broken. Taking it all in all, it was one ot Ihe. best social evenings the club has over hud and nil are looking forward lo next ladies' night. CLUB REPORTER.

CLAYTON LOSES FIRST ASSOCIATION GAME The first game of basketball be tween high school association learns was played last night between Cla loii High School, and the Springer High School. The Clayton team suf fered its first defeat, but the gamo was so close thai one score decided il. Al the close of Ihe second half, Ihe score was even, and it required an allotment, of extra time to decido Ihe game. The rinnl score was 27 to 20. There are no alibis lo offer for our defeat. Clayton was simply oulplnyed. The Springer (ram is well balanced ahd where (hey had il over the Clayton (cam was lhat they played more loam work and less individual. As far as slars tiro concerned, Clayton cannot, be heal, but Ihe work or individual players will not stand up against team work. If our boys will get down to team work and slick lo il, Ihoy aro going lo be the leaders in Iho association, The refereeing was done by an as sociation man, and from (ho reports of those who witnessed the game, was fair all the way through.
