Miss Maud Rohrbacker visited her sister, Mrs. Hirsch, at Cherokee, last week Thursday.

Mr. and Mrs. Henry Smith returned here Sunday from Chelsea, and are the guests of the latter’s mother, Mrs. Havre Summer.

Jesse Clark, who has been home a couple of weeks visiting his parents, left Monday morning for Prairie du Sac, where he will be employed.

The Band Boys will give one of the popular dances, Friday evening, Jan. 31st. It will be the last dance before Lent, so everyone should turn out.

The High School Basket Ball Team drove to Abbotsford, last Saturday night, and played the highs at that place. The score was 8 to 18 in favor of the Abbotsford Highs.

Last Friday evening the Tigers defeated the Sherry regulars in one of the fastest games ever seen on the home floor. At the outset word was given by the referee by both teams to overlook all general fouls. At the end of the first half the score stood 14 to 8 in favor of the locals, but in the last half the Tigers came on with team work that sent the score up 46 to 10, when time was called. One feature of the game was the harmony which prevailed among the players all thru the game. The Sherry boys are all gentlemen, and the home team and audience did their best to treat them as such. After the game the visitors were entertained at dancing.

On Feb. 19th the Tigers meet the Bushey Business College on the home floor, when they will undoubtedly get a good trimming, but the Tigers have four hard games to play off before that date, so will at least be in shape to give the Bushey team a hard game.
