42 to 23 was in favor or tne souin ai

Hatchetltes showed improvement over
other performances, ana nav nuiuin

It was the last game of the season
for the George "Washington players, and
u .mtnr nt the ffame. it was seen
that Catholic University either held the
Buff and Blue players too cneapiy or
nrr not in the beat of condition. Cer
tain it Is that George Washington clear
ly outplayed the Red and Black in tn
first half which enctea wun a score oi
12 to 11.
Neither team was able to get going
until well Into the first period. Catholic
University was sluggish, showed little
stamina or team work, ana lauea sig-noiu-
tn locate the basket in Its many
chances. For the Hatchetltes every
man played well, and to Murray ana
vnnnsn the bulk of the offense and de
fense was attributed.

choice words to say to his players be

much rejuvenated and improved five
took the floor in the second half of the
contest. . . ,.
While the score seesawed up to tne.
point, where George Washington stood
within, one point at 23 to 22. Catholic
University was setting better all tho
while, and let out a few kinks with the
result that the team gradually drew
