Basketball comes into Its own this

athletic clubs, schools and colleges

after a game or so of practice for the

spite the fact lha.t there is a general
complaint that the contests will lack
the patronage ei.Joyed in other years
the managers of the various teams are
sure that their lves will warrant a good
backing. All of the many teams in the
District are ready for the hardest sort
"While several of the smaller clubs
and schoolboy teums have gotten their
workouts George "Washington is the
first of the big teams to get under way.
"Schlltz" SchIos3er, the old Georgetown
caDtain and former Y. M. C. A. player
has had his George Washington team
in practice for some time. Two games
have been played and opinion seems to
prevail that the start taken two years
ago in the indoor sport has led up to
popularity and tho team will come into
Its own this year. Schlosser has gotten
together a likely looking bunch and ap
pears to be ready for a good season.

Rolling its first game on January 5, a new duckpin circuit, the.
Mt. Pleasant Bowling League, will open a schedule which will run
well into the month of April. Because of -the sportsmanlike principal
of its organization, the Mt. Pleasant League is expected to .have a
pleasant career from the very beginning; the circut being formed
for the purpose of accommodating bowlers who roll for the pleas
ure obtained from the game, but who are not sufficiently expert to
hold position on open teams composed of bowlers who must roll
high scores, in order to hold their positions.

figured put that he will get beaten good

theories, one of which Is that Ouimet
