RUN UP BIG COUNT IN
LAST HALF FINAL 21-
Local High School Tea Shows
Decided Improvement and
Defeats Grand Forks I
Victory Comes as a Surprise
to Fans After Watching
Grand Forks Warm Up
One of the biggest surprises of the
Bemidji high school basketball season
came Friday night when Bemidji de
feated the Grand Forks high school
team on the local high school floor
by a count of 21 to 7. Although
the victory may not have been a sur
prise to fhe Bemidji players and those
who have been watching the team im
prove during te past two weeks, it
certainly was to a large number of
the fa$* who witnessed the game,
especially those who watched the
Grand Forks boys during te warming
up period when they seemed able to
cage the ball from almost any angle
Although Grand Forks apparently
hall the best of the floorwork, the
Flickertails proved unable to drop
them in after getting them down un
der the basket- bemidji also prov
ed strong? at breaking up their shots.'
For th-first seven or" eight min
utes it lo^Hed as though neither side
would run up much of a count. Be
midji made*a few changes in its line
up and McDonald caged the first
counter. 4or Bemidji on a long throw.
However, Grand Forks
started the scoring on a. free throw'
by Boe, A field goal by GrandJ
Forks and a free throw by Bemidji^
tied the sdore for a short period, un-'j
'til Bemidji caged another from the
fjoor and took the lead, to hold it/
during tfie remainder of the game,,
the first half ending with the scores
5 to 3 in favor of the locals.
Bemidji played a much better
game in the second period, running-
up 16 points against 4 for Grand.
Forks- Altogether, Bemidji used,
eight men, a squad of ten being out
for warming up. Grand Forks usedi
only six men, a number of substitu-l
tions being made with the extra^
The fact that the Bemidji floor is!
probably about twice as large as the,
one at Grand Forks largely accounts,
for the Flickertailg getting lost at
times. However, the players them
selves admitted after the game that
they had been taking it too slow dur-'

BASKET BALL RULES SPORTS??
When two players are jumping in
center and elsewhere, has one of the
players the right to catch the ball
if he can out jump his opponent?
Such a play is illegal. The ball
must be tapped first. Then the jump
ers. or any other play may catch it
Some guards have the habit of
keeping their hands on the body of
their opponent. Is this permissible?
Guards have no such rights. It is
contact, and a personal foul should
be called by the referee for "holding"
Can a player after he starts a drib
ble alternate hands, or must he con
tinue the dribble with the hand
which he started?
A player dribbling the ball has a
perfect right to alternate hands if
he believes by so doing he can bet,,
tcr execute the play.

Stars Hard to Beat
Tne Bemidji Firemen's basketball
team added another victory Friday
night when it defeated the Cass Lake
city team at Cass Lake by a count
of 29 to 18 in a contest which prov
ed to be very interesting. Bemidji
secured a lead of 11 points in the
first half, the score being 19 to 8-
However, Cass Lake came back in
the second half and put up a fine
game, the half being 10 to 10.
Manager R. B. Lycan of the Fire
men reports a nice, clean game, al
though hard fought. He also states
that Cass Lake has the best team
the Firemen have met in this ter
ritory this season with the outstand
ing exception of Crookston.
Neither Plummer nor Adair took
part in the game for Bemidji, wit
nessing the contest from the side
lines. Both are being saved for the
strenuous games listed for next week
For Bemidji, Fred Phibbs, right
forward, led the scoring with s*x field
goals. Jeub, center, caged four, Mo
vold two, Barrett one and Frank
Phibbs one. Frank Phibbs also scor
ed one free throw out of three.

Cass Lake with four filed goals
Johndahl, left foi-ward, netted two
field goals and four out of six free

completed Cass Lake's scoring with
one field goal.
Next Wednesday and Thursday ev
ening the Bemidji Firemen are to

games promise to be the best to date.
LaCrosse has a team composed of
"All-State" and "All-Conference"
selections while playing in high
school or college. Judging from ihe
information received here by Mana
ger Lycan, the LaCrosse aggregation
will be hard to beat- LaCrosse jMys
Crookston Monday and Tuesday,
coming to Bemidji for a series of
two game sthe nights following.
Next Friday evening, Bemidji will
take on the Two Harbors All-Stars
on the local floor in what promises
