BRAVES TO MEET MIDGETS FRIDAY Mandan High School Squad Perfecting New Defense for Friday Tilt* Mandan’s Braves will reopen their pre-tournament cage campaign Friday night when they tackle the fast-trav eling Dickinson Midgets. Mandan has not suffered a defeat this year against a high school squad, although they were beaten by the Mandan alumni quint in their only game during the holiday vacation. Since school reopened Jan. 6 Coach Leonard C. McMahan has cut his squad to 13 players.

Dickinson has an experi enced team that is expected to extend the Mandan Braves, if the latter arc to win. Captain Frank Boehm, Mandan ace, who was ineligible for the earlier games this season, will be back in the lineup in Friday’s game. In addition to him it is assumed that McMahan will start Bob Saunders or Dale Smith at the other forward berth',' Byron Spielman at center, and Sterling By crly and Lloyd Dietrich at guards. The same combination has, in nearly every case, started all of Mandan’s cage tussles this season.
