Hinsdale took first place in the state
basketball tourney at Bloomington Sat
urday evening, when they defeated
Washington by a score of 18 to 13.
The game was good, although marred
bv the rough work of both teams and
the seeming partiality of both officials
for Hinsdale. The team work and
basket throwing of the Hinsdale men
were equaled by no other team during
the meet. Hinsdale was able to work
their play signals nearly every time,
Kieth, the Hinsdale center, out-jumping
Moyer continually. The game was
the best seen on the floor. The crowd
roasted the officials time and again
for their poor work, and at times the
hooting was surely justified.
The first half was marked by the
'careful guarding done by both teams.
Only two baskets were thrown, and
those by Washington. The first half
ended C te 5 in favor of Washington
In the second half Hinsdale played
them off their feet, and the half ended
with the score. 18 to 13, and Hinsdale
the state champions.
There were two games played in the
afternoon, and both were exceedingly
interesting. The first was played by
Joliet and Mount Carroll and was won
by the latter after a fierce game. The
score was, Mount Carroll 33, Joliet 32
The first half Joliet outclassed Mount
Carroll, and the half ended 16 to 12 in
favor of Joliet. The second half the
game was won by Mount Carroll by
the purest lnck seen during the tour
ney. Kline, the Mount Carroll for
ward, stood three times in the center
of the field and without hardly glane
ing- at the! basket, gave the ball a turn
and it fell through. the ring without
touching the rim. It was through these
luck shots that the game was won.
Ixlnnrirr la Cireat Match.
The other game was between Bloom
.ington and Rock Island. The game
was won by Rock Island by the score
of 33 to 21. The first half the Bloom
ington team held the Rock Island boys
down to 14 points and made 10 them
selves. In the second half the Rock
Island boys were playing Bloomington
off the floor when Rock Island's series
of accidents began. About the middle
of the second half Walter Young, the
star Rock Island guard, had his nose
fractured by colliding with Dolan, a
Bloomington forward. It was neces
sary for him to retire from the game.
and it was thought that he would be
unable to play more. Streckfus was
shifted to guard and Riche was put in
at forward. Again Rock Island got a
start, when with five minutes to play
Liltt and Dolan were both put out of
the game for rough work. Time was
called and a meeting of the board of
directors was held to determine wheth
er the two men were eligible for the
evening games. Both were permitted
to return in l the evening matches.
However, Rock Island had brought but
one substitute, and they had no man
lo put in Liitt's place. An attempt was
made to place Weld in the game, but
he had not been -.entered on the list,
and so was ineligible. It was finally
decided lo play Bloomington for the
remaining time with four men against
five. From this point on the game
was a rough and tumble affair, the
Rock Islanders thinking nothing of
bowling over a Bloomington man when
one got in the way. However, in the
five minutes' play Bloomington made
but one basket and Rock Island made
one foul basket. This game put Bloom
ington out of the race.
Play Three Games In Day.
The first game in the evening was
played between Rock Island and Mount
The Rock Island boys were
fuiiy witn tjjg 8trong Mount Carroll
team, and the game ended 25 to 9 in
favor of Mount Carroll
The - next game was the Hinsdale-

place. .This game ended the tourney.
College Kalea Prevail, "4 '
All of the teams were dissatisfied
With the officiating done by 'Mitchell
and Robinson of the Chicago training
school. They were used to officiating
where, college rules were played and
forgot k themselves and permitted , the
same rules in some of the games in
this, tourney. The college games are
much rougher than the high school
rules permit, and most of the teams
were not used to this' style of "play.
All of the teams complained Unit at
times the officials seemed partial. The
same complaint being made by all of
the teams, something must have been
wrong. Otherwise, the games were
well managed and very successful.'
The lineups of the competing teams
were as follows:
Rock Island Brennen, center; Liitt
and Streckfus, forwards; Young and

Nights of the Kvent.
The executive committee of ihe
Y. M. C. A. circus held a meeting
Saturday evening and the program for
tlie annual circus was arranged, and a
number of other important matters
were taken up. A thing which pleased
the promoters of the circus immensely
was the acceptance by trie Davenpoit
Turners of an invitation to take part
in the affair. The Turners were rep
resented at the meeting by several of
their members and a team from the
society will be down on the program
several times. The Turners are among
the best in this part of the country in
gymnastic work and their act will be
an especially good feature of the
circus. i -i
' To Change rrorrnna.
The committee decided to have it
change of program for every one ot
the three evenings in which the circus
will exhibit, which will be May 8, 9 and
10. .The program for the first night

bars and pyramid work by the Turn
ers, GermaT band concert, acrobatics,
statuary work by the clowns, slack

Sensation at Chicago. Israel Zang
will's new play, T'he Melting Pot," is
to be seen at the Illinois March 25,
with Walker Whiteside in the leading
role This latest play from the pen of
the famous Jewish writer received its
premiere in Washington some time ago
and later was brought to Chicago,
where it has proved a veritable sensa
tion. As his field of work has taken
him several times to Russia, Mr. Zang-
will has put much of the tribulation,
the hope and the despair of the great
steppes of Russia into the play that
has given his opinion of America. The
play is distinctly one of atmosphere
that is as radical in "some ways as
"The Servant In the House." The
hero is a young Russion Hebrew who
comes to New York to work out his
future and make his living by teach
ing and playing the violin. The play
is in four acts and the scenes are laid
in and around New York. "The Melt
ing Pot", is symbolic of America itself,
the drama is national in its scope and
meaning, and throughout there is said
to be an idealization that makes an in
describable combination of interests.
"A Broken Idcl." Large audiences
have been delighted with Otis Harlan
and "A Broken Idol," which is at the
Illinois tonight. The music of the
farcicality is by Elbert Van Alstyne,
the book by Hal Stephens and the
lyrics by Harry Williams. It is well
staged by Gus Sohlke. Characters, ef
fect.' costumes etc.; etc.,' have been
culled from everywhere. The person
age "Doc Whatt," played by Otis Har
lan, has been given the "Kid" Burns
line of talk. The first part of the "Al
abama" number is costumed and danc
ed like the "Ooobah Man" in "The
Lady from Lane's." The girls "Happy
Days," with their yellow gowns and
hats trimmed with oranges, and the
fepanisti number sung by Miss Des
Roche and chorus more than suggests
two of the best features in "A Stub
born Cinderella," and the "China Doll"
song in more ways than one harks
back to that old "package - of tea
ditty of years ago.
