would stamp them as contenders. It
has been mighty hard for tho North
Cache High at Richmond and tho
South Cache at Hyrum to compete n
the division in every tranch of school
athletics duo to lack of facilities.
Both of these schools now have new
gymnasiums but they have not hal
up to this time and this has retarded
the progress of football, basketball
and practically every sport. Theae
schools, as well as the Preston HI 1
school which was formerly the Onel i.t
academy, are situated In agricultural
sections which also has a great deal
to do with athletics, particularly foot
ball, and even more so because of this
being a sugar beet growing district.
This naturally lias given the Login
High school a great advantage.
EASY GRID WINNERS.
The Grizzlies havo been easy win
ners of the Cache division In football
and have vied for the state title four
successive seasons. Lack of competi
tion has handicapped them against
tholr opponents in the title gamos
and tills was quite true this season
when the Salt Lake Kast High team
H won over them by only a 3-0 score
H aided by Dame Fortune. The Logan
H High lias never lost a football game
H In the division.
The most successful basketball se
H son the division has ever enjoyed was
the 1921 season when tho keen com-
petition helped Coach Dick Kapple
B develop the great Grizzly team that
fl annexed the Rocky Mountain confer-
H ence t.t'r defeating every tournament
1 contender from four states. This sea-
better than at any other time In the
history of the organization.
That the Ogden course Is considered
one of the best in the United States
Is evidenced from tho statements made
1V Kirkwood and Hagen. Both of
the world known figures termod the
OOUrse one of the best in the United
States, the fairways being exception
With the 1 923 season nearlng It 4s
expected that the membership at the
club will be swelled to the limit. In

by H M. Rowe, chairman of the

to Install gruss and trees, which will

From the manner In which golf Is
advancing In Ogdcn and other pa-is
of tho United States, within a few
years a membership In such an organ
ization will be worth many times Its
present value. As a matter of fact

was a merry scramble and the winner
was bound to be a great team. Logan
lost two hoop games this year by small
scores, but the losses helped to make
a real team later.
Last winter the Logan High had
even a better team than the champion
aggregation and according to all rules
of dope should hae repeated their
performance of the prelous season,
but a Jlttle vanity and too much suc

won every division game by 4 to 1
and 3 to 1 scores, came on to the
floor of the Deseret gymnasium for
the first tournament game they pro
duced the prettiest sight ever seen in
a tourney before. Every man wore a
clean new suit and every athlete was
groomed fit to go to his own wedding
with a brand new hair cut and shave.
The squad passed the ball with per
fect precision. Fans looked on In awe.
Ilav!ng gii n the fans Something
to observe in fnelr appearance both
as champions and as "fashion plates, '
the Grizzlies soon walked off the floor
and their tournament mission ended.
They lost the first game to a mucii
inferior team They really had a won
deful team but could not play bas

I greatest high school team Utah has
