This game was anxiously looked forward to by all residents of both schools, and the fans were not disappointed. The game was a thrilling one all the way to the last minute of play.

High point man for Hinckley, was Raymond Robinson with 21. Merlin Theobald was next with 12. For Delta, Donald Floyd was first with 13, and David Moody was second with 9. Rabbits Have Bad Week Of Basketball The Rabbits had tough luck this week in their ball games, when they lost two home games. One to Beaver by one point, and one to Hinckley, by two points. Wednesday, February 25, they lost to Beaver, in a hard fought game right up to the final buzzer. This game put the Rabbits in a tied position with Hinckley, for 3rd place. Saturday night, February 28, Delta lost again to the Hinckley Mustangs, leaving them in another an-other tied position, with Millard.

It will depend on the Hinckley-Parowan Hinckley-Parowan game if Delta has a chance or not. It Hinckley loses Delta will have to play them a-gain a-gain for third place, providing Delta wins their game with Mil- ford.

Primary Water On Upper Sevier May Be Stored Judge Lewis Jones of First Ju dicial District recently made the final ruling subject to an appeal to Supreme Court that the upper water users of the Sevier River, (Garfield and Piute counties) may store their primary and winter irrigation ir-rigation water Judge Jones' made it clear that he was not intending to deprive any lower user of water, but contended con-tended that excess use on the upper up-per areas was contributing to water wa-ter logging of large areas with excess ex-cess use by water-loving plants and large evaporation losses. So long as the upper river users keep the stream flow at Kingston the same as it has been on comparable compar-able previous years, storage and use on new lands may be practiced. practic-ed.

Home, this is an important ruling affecting all irrigation irri-gation (farmers, "because it implied the former concept that a person with a prior right may waste the water while other persons could use it profitably. Under the new-ruling, new-ruling, wasted water will be put to use and accrue to the benefit of the ones who save it.
