A basket ball team composed of boys
from Dallas College and public school
played a team from the Training De
partment Saturday night. In, team
work and goal throwing honors were
about even, neither team showing much
ability- In weight the Dallas team had
things all their own way, being much
heavier and older than the T. D. boys.
The game was won by Dallas, 12 to 6.
Some wonder if the Normal basket
ball team is too small fry for Dallas and
Willamette, or have they concluded that
the Normal lads are s hard bunch to
beat. Be the cause what it may, Mon

only team that has kept the All-Stars
from throwing a field goal during a
game, and the showing they have made
this season is'such that any team that
expects to claim championship honors
should meet them and prove their claim.

and that year by year the number of
people coming grows larger. A review
of the real estate dealer in this locality
bows that all tbe farms offered for sale
have been bought by men from the
east and an interview with these men
elicits tbe fact that they are all well
pleased with the country and that they
would not consider proportion to sell
