CHAMPS GAIN VERDICT
BY 2 TO 21 SCORE
CoachNewanafc Five Shows
. EanyvfctOf Another
(By Fred llayea)
Basketball fans who hare brn
gravely ccaccmed orer the possiailitj
that the rebuilt high school door team
of this season -could ha only an apol
ogy for and a shell of thr vender fire
that carried the banner o tlie orange
and black, to unprecedented heights
last season can dismiss their doubts
and fears oa the subject.
It will be safe to say that the com
posite opinion of the several hundred
fans nho attended the opening cage
fiasco of the season Saturday night
and gave Coach, Newman's latest bas
ketball accessions the ocular analy-j
ArrayMl against Ml Vernon high In
her first local appearance was, about
the most impoiing opponent that
could be secured, the members of
which most local fans have some
recollections of seeing some place be
fore. They are best Known as the
scholastic champs of Ohio. Illinois.
Nebraska. Sooth Dakota, etc Before
the game, many were of the belief
that this year's hopes would suffer
tembly in comparison when, pitted
against the scintillating court crew
that-made las? Season so epochal In a
vicinity not entirely unknown to focal
followers or to tho good basketball
citizens of such inunicipalitfea as
Rockford, Sutton, Yankton and Dela
ware. Well, tho champs w6n, but tier did
not dismember their adveftgry as
some predicted, but narrowly escaped
being subjugated themselves. The
score was 23 to 21.
Close and Hard Fauflht
If the high school basketeers were
embarrassed in the presence of the
venerable champs, there was no oat-
ward manifestation. Perhaps the nov
elty of the thing had worn off some
what, because of the fact they had
mingled with the champs in 30 or so
skirmishes last year dories practice
sessions. These subs and scrubs of
last year, 'who had helped to boild up
a championship team but who had
received many knocks but few cheers
in return, had now graduated to regu
lars and again were engaging their
friendly enemy. And by the way. how
could the scrub team of a year a'o
stack up against the best quintet in
the universe 50 or 60 times (the
Kentucky Blue Devils excepted, per
haps) without absorbing some of the
qualities that made that team? That
is food for thought as the thinker, not
the sport writer, would say.
For intensity and excitement, it is
doubtful whether the contest Satur
day night will be equalled this sea
son, to say nothing of being surpassed.
It uas the evenest kind of a race over
the whole route, and only a seer coald
have determined the ultimate winner.
Usual! vi onljra point or two separated
the two fives. On five different occa
sions the high school forged to the

The sight of the old nsa of last sea

bring back pleasant memories of the
past. All but -Ced Smith, were on

back to his hose ia Boston after
