if when it is knwn tht the hgher-t
basket was sold for $16.00 There
were not baskets enough to go a
round so a lunch at 10 cents a

was realized. Is was announced

the Agency's best players, too,
was unable to be present. The
Agency team will play Wilmot
at Peever Tuesday evening, Feb.,

we can confidently assert that
they will prove as brilliant losers
as they were triumphant win
