Score. Winners Challenge
The juniors won decisive vic
tory in basket ball, at the Rank hall

sophomores to the tune of 48 to fi.

Vera Gregory Pead.
Vera, the eight year old 'daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. L N Gregory died
at their homr in this city Sunday
night. Vera was a bright child and
great favorite among h.-r play,
males. She was unselfish and al
ways looked alter the wants of
others. Vera was born in Goquillo
and has lived most ot her short life
in Coos connty, but she has now
been taken away and we must bow
in submission to the creator, of the
universe. Just why these little
flowers should be brought into the
world and so quickly taken away is
hard to understand, but someday
we may know. The sincere sym
pathy of a large circle ol friends will
be extended to Mr. and Mrs
Gregory in their bereavement. The
funeral is being held today and in
terment will be in the Uandon
Casei in Supreme Court.

opportunity to' know that Uandon is
