in order to take up'the work of any
of the high school or grade teachers
who may not be able to resume their

left the balls near the end rat, which
permitted Hoppe to collect 50 points

Hoppe was amazing. -He deftly overcame bad llhe gps on the cushions,
used -the masse for improving position, and altogether displayed remarkable judgment as to speed. He
