Technical was the only local team to figure in (he win column last week, win ning Its sixth straight victory when it outplayed Lebanon. 24 to 12, here Satur day night. With the other three schools handicapped by injuries, illness and in eligibility rulings, it was up to the Tech ites to shoulder the burden of keeping the local high schools in the running, and the workmanlike manner in which the east siders disposed of Lebanon proved the responsibility was well placed. Shortridge has bid goodby to Vorhees at the bidding of the state ath ietie board, and the absenee of the lengthy center Jumper and back guard leaves a big hole In the S. H. S. team. Ripple is sorely In need of Garret, who, however. Is reported rapidly recovering. Manual is just getting her regulars back In tbe game after much sickness, and we still insist the south siders are far from being out of the running. Technical has won its last six games, Snortrtdge has lost its last five. Manual its last eight and Broad Ripple its last two. The re cent win of Broad Ripple In Its alumni game at the Marion club gym 1r given added Interest when it is known that the Ripple alumni team was the Joy and Gloom outfit, which won the Independent tourney last week. With the state high school basketball tournament just one month away, inter est Is picking up in the question of which or the local quintets will wear the colors of Indianapolis in the big event at Bloomington. Os course, there is a pos sibility that this city may not have an entry, as Rome of (he teams that played such good basketball In the recent, coun ty tourney may put the locals out of it. But local fans have about settled It In their own minds that one of the etty schools will win out in tbe Marlon coun ty sectional. Dopesters have been busy lately trying to make the dope favor their particular school team, and, as in a number of In stances local schools have played the same outside teams, the wins or defeats or comparative scores in such cases are eagerly tabulated. Some of these tabu lations follow: Shortridge and Technical. Nine teams have been played by both Shortridge and Tech. The scores of these games follow: S.H.S. Opp. Tech. Opp 22 28 Lizton 14 23 22 19 Shelbyville .... 8 23 23 22.... Grfeencastle ... 14 15 33 24...

Brownsburg ...,2fi 10 It will be seen from the above that each of the two local schools has beaten three of these nine teams. Shortridge has beaten three teams that have won over Tech—Shelbyvllle, Greencastle and Mooresville. Tech has beaten three of the teams which have won over Short ridire—Lebanon. Thorntown and Tipton. Both have victories over Brownsburg. In the remaining two games-—Lizton and Franklin—there is a fifty-fifty split. Liz ton beat Tech hy n larger score than It did Shortridge. and Franklin beat Shortridge by a larger count than it made on Tech. Shortrldee and Manual. The record of Shortridge and Manual ns compiled from the games In which both have met tbe same out-of-town teams follows: S.ILS. Opp. Alan. Opp. 23 22.... Brownsburg ....17 30 22 19 Shelbyville 18 26 23 27... Huntington 22 18 12 22 Rochester 21 26 8 12 Tipton 5 41 Shortkidge has defeated two of the teams which have beaten Manual. Man unl has defeated one team (hat hss de feated Shortridge. The other two teams —Rochester and Tipton have defeated both of tbe locals. Rochester defeated Shortridge by 10 points anil Manual by 5. Tipton defeated Shortridge by 4 points and Manual by 39 points. Technical and Manual. Tech. Opp. Man. Opp. 21 15... Broad Ripple ...29 13 -8 23....

Columbus and Brownsburg. which have beaten Man ual. Tech has won six of the eight eon tests, while Manual has won throe of tbenn. Shelbyville and Bloomington have defeated both teams. Manual and Broad Ripple. Manual has beaten Broad Ripple. 29 to 13. Manual has a win over Southport. 27 to 14. Broad Ripple lost to Southport, 12 to 4. Technical and Broad Ripple. Technical has beaten Broad Ripple. 21 to 15. Technical has a win over Ben Davis. 35 to 11. while Broad Ripple has defeated Ben Davis three times. Thus endeth the "direct" dope. When I you begin to monkey with the “indirect” I brand, you can prove anything. For in stance, by using the well-known "there fore" stuff, it can be shown that Short ridge has it "all over" every team that she has lost to. Shortridge has beaten Mooresville. which bent Lizton: Short ridge beat Fortville. which beat Hartford City: Shortridge bent Brownsburg. whieb beat Manual, and Manual beat Hunting ton; Shortridge beat Argos, whieb beat Rochester: Shortridge beat Shelbyville, which heat Tech, and Tech has defeated Lebanon. Thorntown and Tipton—but | the possibilities are too endless to follow. ‘B’ Club Reorganizes Several seasons back, one of the or j ganizations that flourished at Butler was - the Monogram club, composed of the , various students who had won their "B" in someone of the branches of sport at Butler. Owing to the fact that all the upper classmen were In the service dur : lng the war, the Monogram club ceased to exist.

Special Correspondent of The Times. LOS A NOBLES, Feb. 9.—The clock ticks faster for Jack Dempsey right now than it ever did before. All the things he does In a single day would make a dictionary. At 9 a. m. he ceases to be Jack Dempsey, the fighter, to become “Dare-Devil Jack" of the movies. The serial which he is making at the Hollywood studio calls for fifteen epi sodes—a • total of 30.000 feet of film. Dempsey and Jack Kearns, his manager, say tbey’li get $500,000 in real, not stage money, as their share-'Of the picture. That ought to make Charlie Chaplin turn green with envy. In ordinary life Jack is fairly good looking. But after be gets through ap plying the plastic putty and tbe powder puff—makin’ up—he’s “stage” handsome. “DOESN’T STICK WORTH NOTHIN’,” “Darn this putty, anyway. It doesn't stick worth nothin’ after doin’ roadwork with my face all sweaty.” mused the champion as he battled with his new im plements of movie stagedom. Remember that slightly turned-up nose Dempsey bad when he marie Willard s seconds toss In a gory towel last July’ A pug nose Is good enough for the champion and all that for every-day life, but for picture purposes a straight one like Wally Reid's is much more exciting*, according to the testimony of feminine cash customers at the movie shows. So that's what Dempsey has had to do plaster on a putty nose. Hlr big hands do It neatly. In spare time he practices new holds with the putty and paint. “It pays to look the best you can when BILLIARDS state three-cushion. Lewis Yogier, although idle last week! in the state three-cushion billiard tour- ! ney in progress at Harry Cooler's Ml- !

He has one! more contest to play, and that with Mar- 1 tin Thursday afternoon. Harry Cooler.

Cooler, Cur- j tls and Teague are tied for third, fourth and fifth places, while Sullivan is Just ! behind them. All four of the men Have a chance to enter into a tie for the lead, while Martin and 'Terrill are practically out of tbe running for a position. Four games will be played this week ami the final contests of tbe meet will be carded next week, there being five re maining scraps on the card after this week’s frays. This week's schedule: Wednesday Night Teague vs. Yogier. Thursday Afternoon —Rubens vs. Mar-; tin Thursday Night—Curtis vs. Martin. Friday Night Sullivan vs. Terrill. HENNING MATCHES PENDING. dene Henning, former state pocket j billiard champion, is practicing daily for hts proposed late season ma'-ch with Leese of Terre Haute, present Holder of tbe title.

The Lester match may be re scheduled later for the Claypool parlors, but at present it has been marked off of Henning's schedule.

One of the best indoor ranges in the country has been completed at the old arinorv for the use of the members of the club. Tbe shoot will have no espe rial features, but will be one of many the club will hold In the near future. Recently the club reorganized after being out of commission during the period of the war when most of Its members were in the service. Popular Dave Altizer Conies Back as Umpire Dave Altizer. one of the most populat players ever playing in the American a> sedation, has been appointed an umpire on the A. A. staff by President Hickey. Yeteran Dave has been out of tbe game for a couple of seasons, but he is still active and is expected to prove a com petent official despite the fact that he al ways was an umpire baiter. Altizer. as a member of the Minneapolis club, was a strong individual drawing card for years and many fans turned out especially to seo Dave perform. He always had some thing extra with which to.spice up the game-and be was a player who never quit. And lie could hit 1 Dave lost a son in the war and the vet eran was saddened greatly by the loss. Young Altizer entered the army right off the bat when this country entered tbe big conflict and he was killed in action in one of the early engagements of the American forces. CHARLES LOGAN workin’ In pictures,’’ he confided. “I ain't proud, but. I'm goln’ to do this stuff right and put it over.” PINK-COLORED POWDER,. HE USES. Also recall the heavy eyebrows that used to meet over the champ’s nose sort of friendly like. Well, they’re strangers now. That Is, they don't meet above his nose IJke they “uster.” “Looks better on celluloid,” said the champion as he disappeared In a cloud of pink-colored powder. “I’ve got the old confidence and there ain’t no director or camera man who can scare me,” he chirped. After the makeup the day’s work is easy. He doesn’t try to act but he does do what his director tells him—the same thing—in the movies. When I visited the studio and made the rounds with the fighter-actor he was making a dash from the scene of a fight to catch a train. He appropriated a racing boat and burned a trail along the boulevard to the railway station. He missed the train —one of those movie thrillers, you know. One has no idea of how a movie is made. It’s all made up of little snatches here and there. They chase him with the camera and he chases it. “Oughta .be here tomorrow,” said Jack. “After missin’ the train I put the old boat along beside her —clippin’ It sixty miles an hour. Oh, boy! Watch me. I can give these camera men a few thrills rollin’ on a flyer. Did it for pastime once, you know.” And there came into the champion’s eyes a twinkle as he remembered those other —hts hobo days- now far removed from his present life of luxury.
