What promises to bo one of the
grentest basket ball seasons in the
history of S. T. C. started Monday.
The prospects are for a team that can
not be defeated. Coach Hatley is one
of the best basket ball coaches in the
Southwest and will whip his men
rapidly in shape for the season.
Coach Hatley developed a winning
team at Caney. Oklahoma for a high
school with less than forty students.
This team won the Southeastern dis
trict championship and represented
this district at the state meet, losing
to Tulsa the state champions. Last
year he took charge of the Lindale,
Texas high school basket ball team
and put out a team that never lost a
game, winning the state championship
from ElPaso, which team had not lost
a game in eight years. A man with
a record like that cannot fail to de
