The high school team? have ended one of the moat successful seasons ' in the history of Inter-high basket-1 ball. Central Hiiti carried oft the bunting after one of the greatest struggles in scholastic athletics. The title was conceded the Mount Pleas ant lade before a contest was played, but, although tbey only lost .one game out of eight, tttcy only won in the other seven by the hardest kind of an uphill fight. In only two con tests did they have any great mar gin and that was in the contests against Technical and Tastern. Central had a seasoned team tn start with, and the boys on the team were much older and heavier in com-! parison. Central did a whole lot bet ter against other quints than those In the league, as they had little trou ble tr-juncinpc those ?????.? ut ? "Wee" Willie Thomas was the par ticular bright star of the serlos, as it was entirely through nie sp'emh'l work that Eastern was able io en volve a three-coronered tie with West ern and Business. Willie scored ?'<'? of his team's total number of l? 1 points during the series. They never came too big for this lud. The Central quint showed its ?-"u periority over all other quints by 'le feating the University of Virginia freshmen last week. 37 to 18. Thla was the worst defeat suffered by the freshman in many a mammon. Western, the little fellows from Georgetown, were not considered worth worrying about i.t t'ie start, but the other fellows toon found out to their sorrow that the boys irom across the creek were a tough nut to crack. They had on*1 of the best defensive quints in the league. Business and Technical were without the services of permanent coaches, and this apparently was the cause of their inability to land closer to the top. Business should have done a whole lot better than they did. but Tech, practically made up of new players, was with out the services of a coach during the entire season. The guards on the teams far out shone the forwards this season. The work of the teams on the defense was much better than that on the offense, with one exception the scores being uniformly close throughout the season. In the twenty garner played, four of them were decided by a single point, three by two points, three by three points, which gives an idea of the clo-ge guarding. The work of the guards far out shone that of the forwards. Fos ter, Potter and I-ong, of Ont ral; Wight and Sinclair, of Western; Newman, Eastern: Tow les, of Busi ness, and Ourevlct, of Technical, did better work on the defense than the forwards. Thomas, of Eastern; Anderson, Technical; Schneider and Sch?fer, of Business, and Herron and Eisen* ger, of Western, were checked re peatedly for one basket a game by the guards. Of the centers. Wilson, of Can tra!, stood out prominently. Pep per, of Western; Fegan, of Business; Hanii. of Eastern, and Browne, of Technical, were behind Wllaon in scoring and on defensive work, al though Pepper, of Western, made the best showing against the Cen tral crack. The attendance at all the con tests was a prominent factor. The galleries were crowded at nearly every contest. The past season will be long remembered In High School athletic circles. Schola.-ttic basket ball has been successful this season because of Us organization. When the teams were playing indepen dently few persons attended the contests, but under conditions where something tangible le at stake in each game great interest has been shown. Local colleges began to recognize that situation last spring, and they also have had more suc cess this year than usual, because of the organisation effected early last fall. Hooiiers Select Training Quarten. Indianapolis, Ind.. March 8.?The In dianapolis American Association team will train at Hattlesburg. Miss., it wa? announced today. They will start work on March 21. No man ager for the team has yet been chosen definitely. HILLTOP QUINT ARE CHAMPIONS Record of Georgetown Tossers Is Best in South Atlantic-Division. The Georgetown University basket ball team has just finished a most successful season. While the team did appear to be as strong an ag gregation as that of 1916-17, tt was equally as fast and a wonderful scoring machine. The team won a majority of its contests, annexing eight victories and losing six. Five of the ?ames were lost away from home, the one wtth Mount. St. Joseph's at Balti more going to an extra session In order to determine the winner. The Hllltoppers only lost one contest in Ryan gym, and that vu? to the Camp Meade Officers' team, headed by Capt. Kinney, of Yale University, who brought up an all star college quint from the canton ment. They only lost this game after a hard struggle and because of the fact that their opponents had had years of experience in the indoor game. They suffered their worst defeat of the season at the hands of the Middies,' down at .Annapolis, by 49-to-17. While Lehlgh University defeated them at South Bethlehem. Georgetown got the best of the bargain by walloping the Brown and White five in Ryan gym, earlier in the season. While Mt. St. Joseph's defeated them 34 to 31. in an extra period same at Baltimore, the Blue and Gray five got the better of the argument by beating them 44 to 10 at the Hilltop. In every contest where they played a return match Georgetown had a distinct advan tage. It Is doubtful if the Middies' could have won from them If a return game had been played on th? Hilltop. Although the team only played I eight of their fourteen games on their home court they were able to outscore their opponents by 157 points, getting 500 points to 343 by the opposing teams. Freddy Fees was the mainstay In Georgetown's offense, bcoring 11? field goals and eighty-six from the l.>foot circle, a total of *J?C points in twelve contest?, an average of 18-plus per game. Fees did not play In the contests at Lehlgh and I-afa vette. and only about 10 minutes of the contest against the U. S A. ?A. C S.. suffering a very severe wrench to his rit?ht ankle in the latter contefct. I "Bobby** O'l.one, the ?team engine. ! as he Is called, was not so far behind ? Vves in the mimix-r of t.'l.l koals. as he tallied 98 points and fourteen ir? ?in fouls, during 11 >? s< a-son. It has been authoritivtly staled that Bob has more endurance and is fa?ter than any lad in th** South Atlantic section. Jack and Jim McNulty, who covered the center position In-twe-fn them, scoi ed 44 and 26 points respectively. Dudack. at center and gutrd, m-ot* d :? points; Louchalk, at forward a ?id guard, scored 4?"? points: Pinnegan, guard. 22, and Kersey. Nu?;ent and Deri vaux, substitutes, 1", 4 and J points respectively. Coach John O'Reilly l.-t to be con gratulated in turning out the strongest quint in this section, with poestbl?? exception of the Navy. The Blu?? at|d ?Gray were so far above the local fives that there was little ?-ompurison be tween them. The two de-'lsiv?- u-UVats of George Washington, snd the one with G.'Maudet, shows how much su perior to ihe other quints George town was.

CARDINALS TO HAVE TEAM THIS SEASON Alexandria, Vlrv, March 8.?Although it looked doubtful at the beginning of the present year whetner tbe Caidi- j nal Athletic Club would have a base- < ball team because of the enlistments of many of the club's members in the . ! different branches of Uncle Sam's : | lighting forces, both at home and on I foreign soil, the fans will be pleased to learn that the Cardinals will put a team on the held again this year m . : an endeavor to entertain the thou sands of new men who will be em- t ployed by thc great shipbuilding cor- ? poration recently established here.

Battle to a Draw at the Y. M. C. A. Opening. _ 'As part o? the program of opening the new Y. M. C. A. building ?t Camp Meigs yesterday, Physical Director H. L. Lawton staged a ball gam? between Company B, ft Barracks Vi. and Com. pany A, of Barraci? 15. which ended In a tie after five strenuous Innings. Players and fans returned to the building where the Engineers* Band from Washington Barracks was dis pensing music for tbe edification of the visitors, greatly rejoiced on once more witnessing the national pastime. When time was called the score wa? 7-all. and hostilities ware called off for the day as the tie will be played off some time next week. Company A sent Bud Collins, a l?ic ?i-ft-hander. to the mound. He dis p^yed plenty of speed and kept his hits well scattered, and but for his wlldness would have come out of Ih? fray with a victory. Conrad, who did the hurling for Company B. pitched a good game and with better supp?t t by bis teammates, together with a little more hitting strength In? the pinches, would not have been forcea to work so hard to come <?ff with a tie score. Conrad was wild, but he sent ten back to the bench by fan ning the air and kept his hit.- well i-ca tiered. Both teams scored In the opcniiiK innings by free hitting, but iTonraa should have been scored upon but once. Instead three runs came across the plate, while Company ? could only work one run across. In the fourth inning Compsny ? went into th? lead when it scor?*d three run? on four hits and a base on bails, and in its last turn at the bat it scored two runs, but Company A came right back In its half of the fifth and put two runs across on four hits and a bas.? on balls, which tied the score, and after the third man was retired the game was called.
