Wo wanted to see Fairview win the tournament, but why hold a grudge against the serios or Clendennin because the little tribo from the southern end of the states upset the dope? Remember Wheel ing fans were not particularly anx ious for Fairview to win the game with the Ohio County favorites. Following is the box score of the state championship game: Buckhannon, 26.

It's all over until noxt season when another story will be written. Perhaps some year Fairview will bo tho hero of the yarn. Every year when it comes toward tl^e end of the long tournament grind, we want to cuss tho series Tor being so all-inclusive and tail ing so long to stage, but when we think of the enjoyment given Ittin-j dreds of young high school boys' by tho.trip to tho big series we feel! ashainod of our selfish thoughts.! To many of the lads who take parv Jti the tourney, the annual trip to I Buckhannon is high spot in their lives eagorlv awaited from year to! year. If the tournament aids anil fosters high, school basketball lr' the state, and undoubtedly it doe?, we don't give a rip if it lasts a I week next year. We'll stick to; rprcss box until it is all over if wo have to buy a cushion. It was a happy idea to divide the tournament into classes. The | scheme worked out just fine, and 1 furnished interesting basketball practically all the time. Some of I the Class B games were not sketch |es iind produced as much excite ment as many of the Class A ovonts.; All the glory is not confined to lone class under the new system. Jane l ew won the Class B pnrty, and when the special to Clarksburg pulled'into Jane Lew Saturday night, tho entire town was at the station to meet the team. A hig bonflro was in full blast near the station aB the boys stepped off the | train, while the sweet music of cow. bells mingled with wild shouts of glee formed a noisy welcome to the lads of tho little town. A banquet was served in their honor at thu town's leading rostaurant. Tho small town often has more real school splirt than the larger cen ters of population. Through the horrible Clendennin nightmare, Abe Wilson, the Fhir view center, tforo his famous "Mil Hon Dollar Smile." Saturday night Abe remarked: "They can beat us but tlTey can't make us stop smil ing." Ataboy, Abe. n After looking over Bill Strickllng, one of the officials at tho game, Wilson told us to tell Claro Abbott to order him a pair of white pants and a whistle, as he contemplated going in\ tho business of .bolng a basketball official. Strickllng is Just a few Inches taller than Abo, who is no small man. ^ ???? Thorc was a splendid spirit ex hibited by the players in the games. In tho battles which were close ano where one favorite had to fall, there was no bitterness. The con tests were spirited with some trip-, ping and holding and the like, but no player allowed his temper to get beyond control. It is-a safe bet* that Bill Wat kins can work all the tournaments at Buckhannon from here on. Referee Watkins is certainly a ca pable official andholds the respect of players and spectators. If we wbro picking an All-State team we would have A. Arnmons and Rohrbough on guards; Ash worth and Bell on forwards and Wyant on center. Rohrbough anC Ashworth are members -of the Buckhannon team, Amnions fron. Foirviow, Bell from Parkersbr.rg and Wyant from Bluefleld. There Is littlo to chooso between Wyant and Stanley of Buckhannon for ceu ter, but wo think the Bluefleld man has a shade, with jVbo Wilson nox: In line. . The first annual banquet of the Wesleyan Varsity Club, composed of men who have won the "W' was held iu the gymnasium at Buck hannon on Friday night with old grads from all over the state pres ent. Visiting coaches and news paper men wore entertained at the! ?>arty. It will bo one of the annual tournament features In the future,] and it Is planned to make it a grea,. r.ome coming event for formei stu-l dents, eepecially former nthle'oe at) Wesleyan. Buckhannon High School hed one of the finost cheering sections! that ever graced a tournament this year and won the cup hands down. They deserved It, but we fee', that if a prize is to be given for the best cheering Buckhannon Tigh School should not be permitted to compete as they cun muster too many membors in their squad ok account of the tournament being Maged at Buckhannon. No othor school can afford to bring enough looters to compete on anything like an equal basis. The matter might l:e settled another way by setting aside p certain time for the cheer ing contost and limiting tho lum ber of Buckhannon representatives to a number on a par with the aver age delegation of competing schools. TOURNAMENT OPENS BOSTON*, March 20.?The wo man's national indoor tennis cham pionship began in the covered courts of Logwood Cricket Club today.

Tho next ball delivered Is a wild pitch that gets away from the catcher and rolls to the grand stand. It Is tho fourth ball on tho batsman. The runner from third crosses the plate and the batsman goes to second while tho catcher Is chasing tho ball to tho grandstand. The batsman failed to touch first baso on his way to second. .The hall is thrown to that baso by tbo catcher, making the third out, re tiring the side. Does tho run score? The run scores. Tho four balls on tho Jjatsman entitles him to first. In falling to (touch that baso pn his way to second he mado him self liable to be put out. How ever, It is Impossible to make this play a third out In which the bats man falls to reach first, because he Is entitled to that baso on four balls. The act of tho batsman In falling to touch first base has no bearing on the rmu : HIE SOX BEAT WES 11 TO 5 Dreyfuss Declares He Has Reached Limit With Schmidt -' PITTSBURGH, March 20.?Tarn ing the Ubl<j3 with a vengeance, | the Boston Americana pounded the Pittsburgh Nationals to a 11 to 5 defeat Sunday in a cold weather game advices received here from the Pirate camp at Hot-Spring*, Ark., stated. It was the Coldest i weather the Pirates had experienc ed since their arrival and fans bundled in winter clothing.to wit nessed the contest. Field Umpire Von Sickel woro ear. muffs. I Wilbur Cooper was no match in the Sunday affair and gave way to Fred Blake In tho fourth. Traynor, jwho shifted from second to short i in the same inning, was credited with a homo run, evening up with O'Rourke of Boston. Grimm chalk ed up three hits for the Pitts burghers, one a two-bagger, i Advicea from tho Pirate camp quote Barney Dreyfuss, owner of the Pittsburgh Club, bb saying that | if it costs the club a lot of games or possibly tho pennant this sea son, he will make no more over tures to Walter Schmidt, catcher, who has.refused to sign a contract bocause of salary differences. If I Schmidt accepts the club's terms and report^, "he will bo suspended whon the time comes." Mr. Drey fuss gald. "I am gettiqg tired of his holdout methods and have gone las far as I can in the matter of salary,*' added tho.Pirate owner. Good Shortstops Are Quite Scarce BY BILLY eVANS. To refer to a ball club as a one man team is hardly fair to the othor players. However, the addition of one star player very often makes a ball club. The presenco of such a player in the linoup immediately changes a mediocre aggregation into a pen nant Tvjnning team. The coming of Tris Speaker to 'the Cleveland Club udded the nec j cssauy punch to the Indians. The [toam ultimately won the pennant | and world series with Speaker op its manager. When Eddie Collins was secured by Commiskey from tho Athletics, the White Sox became a strong pennant contender.- The Sox. af ter tho coming of Collins, won a pennant and a world series in 1917 and a pennant in 1919. "Rabbit" Maravllle last season made a pennant contender out of tho Pittsburgh team. Much credit of course must be given Manager Gibson, but it was Maranville's ppresence in the infield that gave the club its balance. Last year tho Washington Club despite tho experimenting that was done at shortstop was a hard club to beaL Shortstop is a vital position on tho infield. If Washington with an uncer tainty at short was able to stick in the running throughout the season, tho fans of that city have a right to expect much greater things this year with Roger Peckinpaugh playing the position. Shortstop is a problem that sev eral major league managers face. Tho addition of Pockinpaugh has solved it at Washington, but what about Detroit, Cincinnati, Boston and tho Athletics? Tho developing of a player able to fill the position of shortstop just about spells the difference be tween success and failure to Man ager Pat Moran at Cincinnati and Ty Cobb at Detroit. j v It now looks as If Moran would pin his hopes on Caveney, the sen sation of the Pacific Coast Leaguo, I while Cobb has Rlgney, the star of 1 the Texas League, as his one best bet. It Is asking a great deal of a youngster to fill the'bill at short stop on a major Ioague club right off tho reel. However, it looks as if that was the task that both Ca veney and Rigney face. Connie Mack has had a score of! shortstops in the last eight years. Ho probably has a half dozen pos sibilities at tli4 present time. The passing of Dugan may mtike it necessary to send Galloway, who played short most of last year, to third. If so a recruit will hold down short for the Athletics. The Boston Red Sox figure on Joe Dugan to fill Scott's place. Joe doesn't like to play shorL Third is his natural position. That will probably be apparent to Manager Duffy beforo the season is over.
