Farragut, winner of two games, also earned the right to enter the state tournament, Lenox won one game and Martensdale was defeated all around. Thursday Night In the games Thursday night Cumberland won from Farragut 23 to 17, while Lenox defeated Martensdale 23 to 16. Doped as a possible winner of the tournament Farragut played a flashing game but was not able to overcome the teamwork of the Cumberland squad. Lenox had little trouble in winning from Martensdale and at that time Martensdale looked very CRESTON, THIS WEEK The Creston district basketball tournament for boys will be played this week beginning Thursday night.

Lenox miss- eel. 15 free throws in this game, enough to have won the game every- night basket easily. Saturday Night Final games in the tournament were played Saturday night. Cumberland had to fight to win from Martensdale 15 to 7 while the Lenox Farragut game was anybody's battle until the. last minute or two. Mie-'flnal score—was Farragut 31, Lenox 26. Both games showed up the same thing. Martensdale was weak on basket shooting but was apparently as full of fight as on the first night. Cumberland appeared to be tired, or was sluggish. The girls showed little pep and • there isn't a doubt that Martensdale would have won the game if its for- was not a flashy looking team and at times during the first two sessions the crowd wondered, audibly,'how such a team ever got by the sectional tournament. Martensdale deserved more than it got out of the tournament here for the Martensdale girls put out thing they had each They were weak on shooting but by sheer fighting they managed to keep the ball down under their own basket a big share of the time. If the Martensdale forwards had been able to make even a third of the baskets attempted Martensdale would have won the tournament. This was shown in the last game especially when Martensdale outplayed Cumberland but could not make enough r\n4vi4-o 4-r\ wri** 4-i*.«. ~ ™ points to win Flnanically the game. the tournament was successful. About 140 adult season tickets were sold and Bingle*-aclmts5!lons brought the gate up to around $250. Fans were here from all towns represented but we told that Farragut sent the are the wards basket had had practice. a little more The ball was largest delegation. Some of the Farragut fans came Thursday and remained here until after the game Saturday night. ness in the postoffice for Friday, the 13th day of the third month of this year, he found that the third money order issued that day bore the number 131831. it was for $13 and the money order fee was 13 cents It was made payable to O'Dea Finance Co., which name contains 13 letters and is located at Des Moines, Iowa, which address contains 13 letters. Furthermore, the money order was bought by Albert J. O'Riley, which name contains 13 letters! At the R. J. Harden farm sale held four miles west of Lenox last Friday four head of farm horses brought prices that can be called nothing else but fancy. A 1450 Ib. black mare, 6 years old and in foal, sold for $180. Three geldings weighing from 1400 to 1450 and ranging in age from 4 to 7 years, sold for $159 $160 and $131. Average price on the four horses was $157.50. We broke a small piece of metal on our linotype Tuesday afternoon and for a while things looked pretty serious. The piece of metal was hardly as large as your littlejlnger ijail but it hac a very important duty to per form and without it we wer helpless.

A quartet from the seventh grade sang a number for the third graders, while true, thirteen boys from the fourth busi- grade sang for the fifth grade. This is not only a lucky thirteen, but show possibility of being the future glee club. This is the week of sub-district music contest. The following vocal groups will represent the school: girls glee club will sing Dreaming, by Shelby, and Pale Moon, by Logan. The boys glee club will sing Gypsy Life, by Scott, and When Song is Sweet, by Gertrude Sans- Souci. The girls sextette will sing I Passed By Your Window, and Annie Laurie, by Thurston. Thelma Hunt will sing the solo, A Brown Bird Singing, by Wood. Instrumental numbers will be violin solo, Fifth Air Varie, Dancla, played by Richard Kimball; piano solo, Caprice Espagnol, IVfoszkowsKi, played by Phyllis Copeland. The instrumental music takes place on Friday and all the vocal is on Saturday. It is going to take several cars to get these forty-eight students to Bedford. Anyone who would be willing to take a few of the contestants, it would be very much appreciated.

The Lenox - Farragut game was a real battle with the tall, long-armed Farragut guards as the deciding factor. Lenox girls showed their lack of age and experience in this game perhaps more than in of the other two. Lenox missed nine free throws in this game. Verle Davis of Corning officiated as referee in all three sessions and attracted the attention of the crowd by the excellent way in which he handled the games. Cumberland Veterans The Cumberland team is a team of veterans who showed that playing basketball was old stuff to them. Their floor work and passing was smooth but they were weak on baskets. They were outstanding in this tournament only because the other teams were even poorer LENOX LOST IN BEDFORD SECTIONAL The Lenox boys played a valiant game at Bedford last week but were defeated in their first start of the boys sectional tournament. Lenox met Clarinda in the first" game and held a lead in the game until almost the final minute but lost by a score of 22 to 24. At the end of the first quarter Lenox led 9 to 2; at the half Lenox was ahead 12 to 8 and at the third quarter Lenox was still leading 15 to 12, Franklin, Clarinda's high scoring negro forward, scored only two points inside the Lenox free throw line but dropped in several baskets from the center of the floor for a total of 17 points. Gordon, high point man for the News Advertiser has a ma chine the same model as our and they were not using it They very obligingly took off the piece we needed and loaned it to us until we could get new one. The little piece of metal costs about 20 cents but the closest Linotype Co. office is in Chicago and it would have made us at least one day late if we had ordered one and waited for it to come. We extend our thanks to the New; Advertiser and hope we may be able to return the favor some time.

Although not extra good at shooting baskets the two guards were able to smother any attempts made by their opponents. This was the flashiest team on the flood and was popular with the crowd. Lenox fans have a right to be proud of the work done by our girls. There is only one senior on the team and the rest are freshmen and sophomores. For some of them this is the first yeafr of competition. Another year should see wonderful improvement in this team as the girls get a little more age and and experience. Martensdale Fought The Martensdale team was composed of a bunch of fighters who kept Iqoking better as the tournament progressed. They djd net seem' to become <Jownr hearte^ after two defeats and cajne jjjacJt Saturday night to play their beat game. The team Lenox, made seven points. Those who saw the game said Lenox played its best game of the year. At the end of the game, with only 28 seconds left to play, and the score tied 22 to 22, Hayes missed a free throw. A Clarinda mart took the ball off the back board and tossed it to Franklin who was chased to the sideline by Ethington. Franklin made a wild throw at the basket and the ball did the impossible by dropping through the hoop. Clarinda won the tournament by defeating Clearfield in the final game 40 to 11. The Dixon Motor Co. has installed the first and only pneumatic car hoist in town and installation was completed last week. With this piece of equipment a car is hoisted into the air until it is possible for a man to stand erect under it when greasing it. The new hoist has been installed in the large front window where it can be seen from the street and it should prove a good advertisement for this department of the business.

Lenox", Clarinda, Mount Ayr, It is said the peacock likes to spread his fine feathers and strut about but that when he glances down at his ugly feet his feathers fall. Whether this is true or not we don't know but a young Lenox business man was placed in a somewhat similar position one day recently and was he mortified? He had decided to go to Des Moines to spend the day and went up take a car, will you please, notify Miss Maxwell by Thursday evening.
