Pre- vious to this match Sherburn and East Kildonan fought to a score- less tie in a junior game that bristled with action and produced an excellent standard of play. In the senior fixture Sherburn built up a 13-0 lead in the first half. Nick Feston scored the open- ing try for the victors and Frank Lanyon followed right up with an- other that was converted by Feston. Before half time Bud Confrey scored again for Sherburn and Fes- ton produced the extra point with a beautiful kick. George Lanyon and Nick Feston 'shot the lead to 16-0 early in the second half and Garrison then ...scored its lone try, Boyes going over and George Nicholls, who starred throughout the afternoon, converting. Through an unfortunate accident in the first half Garrison lost the services of Benzie. He met in a head on collision with Reed.

Another is that Yorkton and Weyburn, clubs which have played in the Southern Saskat- chewan circuit many years, are to be dropped, and a Regina-Moose Jaw-Saskatoon league proposed.
