The game will Hjttjbjd at eight o'clock and admls^^ Bjnll"he tree. The public Is invited to see this contest which promises FAIRMOf Boggs Will j Write About ! Tournament L. O. Bo Kg*, sporting editor of The West Virginian, started for Buckhannon shortly after noon today and will be at all the games of the big state tournament. You will enjoy reading his accounts of the , big basketball doings. . He will be present at the Wesleyon-Cralghton j game tonight at Buckhannon and snappy comments on this battle ; will be found In tomorrow's West Virginian. Sport Chat I ' Wo are off in a bunch for the ^and of the Flanagans with high hopes of something or other we are not just sure what, and we won't be back until Sunday unless Pierre Hill does not like the grub in Buckhannon, if such were the case we would have to hasten back at once. It is a great lite If you don't weukcn was demonstrated by Fairvtew high ovuuui iu iuo luui uamciu ueiu lit tuia city. Hope the boys from Falrview will not weaken in the final rounds this time. Professor Colebank says he will be in Buckhannon Saturday night if Fairmont Is still in the running. Hope he has to make the trip. Eitra, Extra. Shumaker and a few others are going to pnt out a newspaper every day during the tournament. "Shu" does not give a hang how much work he sticks on himself ibis week. We are anxious to see Just how these champions of the west or near west line up against Wesleynu tonight. According to the hope "Shu" has been sending out the last week they must be some basketball team. But then you never can tell. According to all reports that referee in the Pitt-West Virginia game did not miss very many fouls. As they say iu baseball "call 'em when they're over." ^ We make one bet. Fairmont won't! iuue uer iiral game l". lue LUUrillAIIlunL. A guy over In Waynesburg after the Normal game wanted to bet $100 Waynesburg could boat Fairmont on a neutral floor and anotber $100 that he could whip "Doc" Garrott. Wo will take a $100 of that first proposition, but we want to see the guy before wo put $100 on our old friend "Doc." The main trouble with the West Virginian bowling team Is the fact that the three members of the team never shine at the same time. It one man rolls a good game, the otli.tr two molto a successful effort to offset this advantage by rolling such low scores they are hardly visible. ( If It could just be arranged to havo| the finals in the big state tournament played without having to go through all the agonies of eliminations It would not be such a long, hard grind tot those who witness all tbe games on the menu. The first thing the Fairmont high gang will exclaim wben they hit Buckliannon about 6:45 tonight will be "When do wo eat." Always hungry 13 a normal condition with Kahn's men. j Wonder how many prizes Pierre Hill (will bring home from Upshur county? He did not leave much for tbe visitors in the Fairmont tournament. Shroyer will assist Free Davis at the tournament Shroyer will handle n fow nf Hio'mfnnr cnmoc In nnln. In allow DavlB to rest up for the games which will tax his strength to the limit. Buckhannon Agog Over Basketball ?headline. What you mean, agog? Is It good to drink? _ L. Wonder how many fouls will be called In the West Vlrglnla-Clarksburg game. Hope not as many as In the Pitt contest. Although no Morgantown paper was ever known to offer an alibi for any game, yet they would not allow that referee In Pittsburgh to work another game in which the Varsity took part. According to the present arrangements,, there will be only throe games Saturday night. That, is just fine. Three will be about all one can stand by Saturday erenlng, which will mark the end of a three-day grind. Romlno, the high school star, would like to have his picture on the front page of The West Virginian some night We will put It there next Monday night it he makes the most field baskets in the tournament In order I to show that it is a dose bet, it is stated that Romlno has mbde about stx field baskets all season. Hope the Lumberport coach does not drag his men off the floor at Buckhannon, If Free Davis should happen to call one the way Coach Zlnn did not want It called. Bet a nickel Pop Flanagan's store will be closed during the days of the tournament. ITff ALL RIGHT. Falling to have exact change tor a C. O.

The advance guard of Fairmont rooters deported this morning on the nine o'clock lntcrurban car for Clarksburg and will land In Buckhannon early this afternoon. About 35 were In this party. The team will leave on the 2 o'clock car this afternoon and will arrive In Buckhannon at 6:45. The delegation of girls will likely depart at the same time as the team. Fairmont is not making any wild claims concerning her activities In the tournnment, but the team will fight to the finish and may spring a surprise on one or two floor aggregations before the oml of the Buckhannon affair. Pierre Hill will be the malnsluy of the local team and the play of the locals' will likely be staged around this big boy, who will be a candidate for the All-State team. Another member of the team who will be closely watche'l by the scribes at the contests is Carl Brown, the little forward. His work made u great impression on several the critics at the Fairmont tournament r.t/d if he shows up as well ,at Buckhannon it woudl not be a surprise to find him on the first or ssCAnd state team. He is a game little bird, and despite his size makes a bunch of the big fellows take his dust.

This will be a great night for scholastic placers all over the state. Members of the various teams will meet about two in Buckliannon and swap: yarns on the season's adventures. One of the big teams in the tournament will be Parkcrsburg, according to late reports. With the return of Bell to the Ohio river school it has taken a new lease on lite and the basketball team has been making a very good record of late. The thirty-thirty car out of Clarksburg for Weston this afternoon will l-e right well crowded with basketball fans and players. The Rtvosville, Fairmont and Fairvlew teams will all take this car for Weston .together with several fans who will be with each team.

After Rumler had affixed his Johi Hancock to a 1920 Bee contract, he de clared that now his only worry was ti bring his batting up to .400 this sea son. Last year his record shows 21' safe cracks out of 591 trips to thi plate. IT of them being home runs, 1 threebaggers and 42 doubles. He bea the famous Sam' Crawford, who play: for Los Angeles now, by two points. Rumler demanded an lncrense In sal nry and threatened to jump to the Yel lowstone Independent league the claims to hare 'Clilck' Gandll's, Chit ago White Sox firsjsacker, name to : contract.
