Santa Claus, well known bene faetor, Thllantroplst and altruist, visited many o New York's basketball man agers and presented thetn with very Useful little gifts In tho form of victories. When Manager Jim Furcy t tho Ocltlcs woko up on Christmas tnomtnjr, ho found In his code two conquests over quintets on tho other Bide of tho Hudson River. Mr. Cody unci his partner, Jlr. Wilde, found that their Brooklyn Dodgers bad also gained a double victory. Jllke Hmollck was nwarded a win over tlio Starling Grcya. Several others wero given similar presents. But then thero Is another side to tho felory. Santa Is one of these wlso old follows who knows whether a (uy has been good or bad. For soma reason or other, when Frank McCormack, of the MacDowcll Lyceum Five, looked In his sock on the Yuletlde. he found nothing but a lioie. On further In vestigation, however, ho spied a note, the contents ot which It would never do to disclose, except that because of It (tho contents) .Santa had riven Frank hlH first defeat of the scison at the hands of the Brooklyn Basket ball team. Willie Sanders found a similar note in his sock. The Brook lyn Whirlwinds, Uoboken Five. Qluo nnd Whites of Passaic and several cithers were likewise disappointed. In spite of warnlngrs Riven by our rluef pessimists, the crowds nt oas kefball games during the last three days, exceeded.

Whirlwinds gained a victory over the reorganized Nonpareils at Sacnger bund Hall, Brooklyn. The final score, 3fi to 30, should bo regarded with tho consideration that tho Nonpareils havo not been playing together for some time. With more teamwork thoro is little doubt that tho losing combination will soon bo up In th front ranks of basketball aggrega tions. Two quintets bowed to the Brook yn Dodgers over the holidays. St. Vincent's Five suffered a defeat at their hands by a score of 45 to 13, and Perth Amboy quintet was sub dued by a score of 31 to 20. Thrt first contest required less work than tho second. St. Vincent's team started a fast offense at the begin ning of the gamo and by their work they acquired a sligat lead over the home aggregation. The Dodger!, however, surpassed their opponents in pagswork and she ting from tho floor. Tho second contest was not so easy as tho first. Perth Amboy went Uito the battle to w-in and the stuff they showed vould Indicate that with a little moro practice tho Dodgers would havo a job to defeat them. Prospect Hall was filled to capacity for the evening game. Some time ago Manager Warsch ct tho Spartan Big Five objected to the sportsmanship of tho Bronx Hao. His contention is that iho Hacs have no right to claim tho Hebrew cham pionship without giving his aggre gation an opportunity to offer op position. The argument is fa'r enough, to say the least, and If there Is a controversy, as thero seems to be, it is no more than fair for the Hacs to book the Spartan Five. For tho good of the gamo the manager of the Hacs can do no less than ac cept thus challenge. Mr. Warsch may be reached at No. 491 East 172a Street. Bronx. COURT CHATTER.
