FIRST GAMES FRIDAY With the withdrawal from the state 150-pound independent basketball tourna ment of the Crawfordsville and Wingatt high school teams, the meet at the local V. M. C. A. Friday and Saturday an official event for state amateur In dependent teams, and in many basket circles fans regard the withdrawal of the Montgomery county fives as a good ' thing for the meet. Both Crawfordsville and Wingate are “outlaw” high school casket teams this season, due to their suspension from the Indiana High School Athletic association and the fact that they were to compete among the Inde pendent amateurs was not received with favor by a number of followers of the game. Crawfordsville and Wingate both with drew rather late, but Wayne Emmelman, manager of the tourney, has replaced these fires with the South Side Turners of this city and the strong Anderson Y. M. C. A. quintet, both popular or ganizations. The reason given for the withdrawal of the Montgomery county squads was that the players of teams were out of condition ns a re sult of participation in the strenuous meet at Cincinnati last week, riiercfote. after looking over the list of the state amateur teams and their records, Kromel man picked the Anderson Y. If. C. A. quintet to take the place of Wingate In the tournament and the South .Mde Turners to fill in the vacancy left by the withdrawal of the Crawsfoi dville elan. MEW SQUADS HAVE RECORDS. The fans owe Emmelman a bit of praise for the Judgment he used in pl*rk ing teams to take the places of the MoDtgomerv county quintets on 'he schedule. Thev both bear remarkable records and will surely keep the stun dard of plav hleh. The entry of the Turners gives Indianapolis direct rep resentation in the big event. The Joy | and Glooms of Broad Rtnple. champions of the local district, will still represent Marion county. j The Turners are the chotcp of Emmel man and the fans to represent Indiana polis in the tourney for two reasons. First thev have defeated every amateur team tn this city and vicinity. Joy and Glooms excepted. Second, they were run ners-up in the local district play and lost their only game of the season in that event when the Joy and Glooms de feated them after going two overtime periods in the Anal scrap. The team is tn perfect condition for action in the state meet and ready to play through the strenuous schedule. The Anderson “Y” athletes are Idols of Madison county independent ranks. in the recent Madison county tourna ment they non the championship in a walk, defeating a number of >jnsy teams, and they Intend to repeat here. With a record of thirteen v ins and no defeats, it looks as though it Is going to take something big t bust up their plans The Anderson combination will make its debut in the tournament at 7:1! Friday night against the Joy and Glooms and the Turners will play their first game at 8:15 Friday evening, at which time they meet the fast Muncie Maroons. JOYS AND TURNERS MAY CI,ASIC AGAIN. The Anderson and Muncie teams are two of the best in the state, but the Joy and Glooms and Turners are eonti dent of victories over them. Should the Ripple men and the Turner quintet win their early-round games they will clash in the semi-finals. Memories of the game these two teams staged In the local dis trict play will live for several years among the fans who were on deck and there Is nothing to keep them from put ting up ns good an exhibition if they dash again. Dawson. Joy and Gloom captain, has stated that he is anxious to meet the Turners in the state event and prove to the fans that their previous vl< lory was not brought about by the ab sence of Johnny Rice from the Turner lineup.

Isn't It queer that no one ever gives the new champion credit for his win. Wo go back to the Sullivan-Corbett fight. Sullivan up to that time was unbeatable. He had toured the coun try and toppled all before him. He even boxed an exhibition with Corbett in San Francisco. When he was matched with '‘Pompadour Jim” he laughed, saying that the Californian was a dancing master and couldn’t bust a pane of glass with his wallop. Sulli van's hackers bet four and five against one that John L. would win. Don’t you think they saw his condition? Don't you think that men offering those odds knew something? Yet after Corbett knocked John L. out the world declared that poor old Sullivan wasn't in fit form to play a tough game of pool. Jack Johnson knocked out Jim Jef fries at Reno and was on the short end in the betting at two to one. Jeffries trnined n year for his fight. The writer was with Jeffries for six weeks at Ro wardennan, Cal., and watched him (billy. He was In great shape. Ills newspaper friends told their renders so. Jeffries declared himself that he was n*)ver be fore in such shape In his life. Two doctors who examined him the day before the fight said that he was the most nearly perfect man physically that they bad ever pot a hand on. Yet he was knocked out after fifteen gruell ing rounds. I'hen .left's friends howled like wolves. “Poor old Jeff an old lady could have afeti hiui. He was a wreck. He was only a shell.” Next we come to Jack Dempsey and Willard. The latter worked like a bea ver for months. He was in great shape. LEAGUE LEADERS LAST MGIIT.

Manual should lie the favorite In her clash with Thorntown Friday evening., in spite of the fact that the Thorntown basketeers beat Shortridge recently, 21 to 18. The Mnnualßes should be prepared to play their hardest, for the Thorntown floor is n big handicap to visiting ten ins.
