The Academy crew took Presentation to the tune of 25-12, and though the scores seems rather one-sided the game was much better in action than the score would Indicate. For the locals Mahoney found the basket 6 times whMe Uhlenhake for Presentation found it three times. Algona had 19 fouls chalked up aganst them while Presentation was charged with 15. This seem a lot of fouls in an ordinary game, but Bon Eggers, Fenton, referee, was somewhat the closest observer of all referees, in fact it seemed that if the sidelines clapped a hand he called foul on one of the players. However, he played no favorites, and outside of seeing "pushing" on the least provocat'on, his work WPS quite satisfactory.

The high score was no doubt largely due to the df.fference in size of nipny on the teams, Presentation boys being younger and certainly much shorter than were the boys on the local quint. However, the Presentation lads showed good fight and good material will come off that bunoh in the future. L. D. R. Girls, Depew, Elect Year's Officers Fenton: The L. D.
