Lawrence, Kai, Dec 17 With the

basketball well on its wa) toward the

fans are beginning to turn their alien

of cogitations over the field and cinder
situation is this, under the leadership of
Captain Eerett Bradley, OI)rapic star.

(.Parenthetical!), it might be remarked
that the middle of December is always
a good time for a track tory from Kan

be written after that.)

Poor Hamilton! He did get his name
