NEWS IS READ THROUGH. , . , j 1 with the contest by a score of 29 to 15 The score would have been more uneven but for the fact tha$ the Academy made numerous sustitutiens and did not have the ability to connect with the draperies on their short Shot. The game was fairly well played, i burstg of speed being shown at cer- i tain stages hen some clever team work was displayed by the Quakers, who worked the ball under- the oas kcts for numerous short shots. The battle started with a rush, Fainv.ount connecting for a field goal followed by a free throw. Warren at once came back with a free throw followed by a field goal makirg the score even at 3 and. Both teams battled hard for the lead in the next two minutes when Rich of Fairmount, made a pretty shot putting r airmoum j . - ft "N A. ahead. From this time on Fairmount was never in danp?r scoring at will during the rest of the fray. The first half four.d the score 19 to 8 for Fair-mount. The second half was much like the first, the Academy starting the scor- ing with a field marker followed by a, oasKot oy v . iioimes, "amn? forward. Fwm this time on the "fighting five1" benibarded the basket at will, bu missir.g many short shots. Second string men T?re used during the latter part of the game by the Academy while Warren substituted to try to check the Academy's offense without mo:h success, the game end ing 29 to 15 in favor of Fairmour.t.

However, Hollings. worth got loose for tw0 field goals and Fame added several fouls, bringing the local score up to 19, and Summit- ville fans were clearly getting worried just before the final pistol put an end to the rally. ?

Hollmgs-worth broke loose for three from the field and Olfather dropped in one.

Wells, and possibly Miami would join in the construction of the building. As the larger part of the expense would be contributed by ttrant county this being the larger county, it is said the location for the hospital would be somewhere in this county. Thirty thousand dollars was voted by the people of Grant county, for the purpose of erecting a hospital, but the appropriation has tnever been made, because of a lack of finances. However, with the movement for a joint hospital, it is said the likelihood for j the new ir.sVitu'ion is verv favorable.! In this connection, wide interest is tonsifietl eampaicn.
