CHURCH REAL WONDER
By IIEZE CLARK.
Purdue university did what few col
lege teams in the country -can and
Boilermakers defeated the Em-Roe inde
pendent basketball champions of Indiana.
The score was Purdue 27, Em-Roes 24.
The game here last night was witnessed
by the largest crowd of the year and
many basketball fans failed to gain ad
mission to the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium
because there was no room left.
Followers of the great indoor sport
will wait many years before they will
see a better or faster game of basketball
than the Purdue-Em-Roe clash. It was a
cleanly played, hard-fought battle, in
which not only the players proved that
they were true sportsmen but the of
ficials demonstrated that they knew how
to handle the game in the best way
LIKE A CHAMP.
The showing of Purdue last night does
not in any way discredit the Em-Roe
team, but rather indicated that Coach
Lambert's team this year will have a
real chance at landing first >"iiors in the
Big Ten college eonl-> w<- race. Not
only was the passing and offensive play
of both teams unusually good, but the
wonderful defensive play will long be
A1 Feeney and Behrent never played
a better defensive game for the Eni-
Roes. White and t’offing proved Just as
strong for the college boys. To be sure,
it was not Just ttie defensive play of
the guards that counted, but rather the
defensive play of every man on both
teams, for they played a five-man de
fense. Purdue, however, varied that type
of play occasionally, using Tilson, the
rail pivot man, near the basket to try
and worry Feeney. Tilson kept Feeney
busy, but only caged one field goal. On
any other guard lie probably would have
scored a half dozen. It was M. M. Smith,
the Purdue forward, who came through
with a series of six field goals and
spelled defeat for the Indianapolis team.
At the close of the game a group of
newspaper men and basketball officials
and conches were dismissing the game
and someone asked who the star was.
li seemed that .-Very man picked n dif
ferent player. However, it finally ended
when Church was named ms the star
of the Purdue team and Feeney of the
Em Roes. Not that Church was a goal
getter. But that tittle speed merchant
was without a question the fastest man
at covering tin- floor spen in Indianapolis
in ten years. His defensive play, pass
ing and general work over the floor made
possible Purdue's field goals. Not only
that imt he handled the ball in a way
that is seldom seen in any basketball
game. He Is one of the basketball won
ders of the central west.

right place when most '.ceded, played

Tfie first half ended with the score an
8 to 8 tie. Then came the battle and It
would seem that the college athletes had
a slight shade In endurance, and physical
condition counted. First one team and
ilien mother got a slight one or two
point lead. Scnoeneman was the danger
ous goal-getter for the Em-Roes. for
Klein was not hitting the nets last night
as hp has In other games. It was after
the middle of the second period had been
passed that the Boilermakers got started,
and then they went wild. It was In those
minutes of play that Church, whose .floor
work had been the marvel of the game,
seemed to Increase in apeed, and he
worked to M. M. Smith. That athlete
shot goals at bad angles and with less
than a fraction of a second In which to
get rid o' the hall, for those green and
white-shlrted athletes were on him like
a flush, hut It was too late. Purdue got
what might, he almost termed a com
mandlng lead cf three baskets, and then
the Km Roes staged a rally. Schoeneman
and Klein found the basket, but It was
ton late, and Purdue had won by a mar
gin of three points In what will go down
in history as the best basketball game of
thp 1919 1920 season In Indianapolis.
One thing was demonstrated In last
night’s game and that Is that. Indian
apolis needs a gymnasium large enough
to accommodate the hundreds of basket
ball fans who went to see games in this
city and it Is to be hoped that In an
other year such a building will be
erected. Lineup and summary:

KOKOMO, Ind., Jan. I.—The Wabash
college basket men overcame an 18 to 12
lead in the closing minutes of play here
last night and defeated the Kokomo
Chamber of Commerce quintet, 84 to 23,
In the first game of their barnstorming
trip. The Kokomo team started the
game with a rush and looked like easy
winners, but In the middle of the Initial
period McNutt, center and star of the
outfit, was disqualified for four personal
fouls and their play was greatly weak
ened. The half ended with Kokomo
leading by a good margin. In the second
period Adams, Etter and Kashner found
the basket for Wabash and scored sev
eral field goals in rapid succession.
