Keeping alive their hopes of at
least sharing in the Western Buck
eye league cage title, Bluffton High
stayed in the thick of the hot loop
race last Saturday night by besting
St. Marys, 60 to 55, on the St. Marys
court.
A whirlwind start for the Lowry
men ultimately proved their margin
of victory in the contest, and gave
them a record of three wins against
one less in league games. So far
this season the Pirates have w*on
eight of 12 games.
Bluffton’s attack was red-hot in
the opening minutes of the game at
St. Marys, and the locals rolled up
an eight point lead at one time in
the initial quarter. From there the
Pirates went on to score the five
point victory.
Don Schmidt and John Bauman
each hit for two field goals at the
outset of the contest to give Bluffton
Bluffton High Cagers Remain In Title
Chase With 60-55 Win Over St Marys
the asonishing 8-0 lead. Schmidt
also led the evening’s scoring for
the winners with 18 points on nine
field goals. Bauman had 16 points
on eight fielders.
Guard Cook, of St. Marys, kept
his team in the running, however,
with one of the best offensive per
formances turned in against Bluffton
this season. Cook connected on 12
field goals and five fouls for 29
points.
The Bluffton win by five points
was the fourth Pirate tilt in the last
six decided by a margin of five
points or less, and continued the
team’s record of closely contested
games.
In the preliminary St. Marys re
serves won by a score of 39 to 38.

Band Benefit Cage
Game This Wednesday
One of Bluffton’s stellar mid-wint
er shows—the annual basketball
game between local business men
and the public school faculty—will
be played Wednesday of this week
in the high school gymnasium, with
all proceeds going to the grade and
high school bands.
Sponsored by the Band Mothers
association, the annual basketball
joust between the business men and
teachers is one of the highlights of
the winter cage program. Last year,
for example, an angel and a demon
rushed onto the court with sirens
blowing to fight over a “fatally in
jured” player.
Also featured in the evening’s
presentation will be a performance
by the Faberettes, a baton-twirling
group from Findlay wlh» performed
at a Cleveland Browns Iwjpe foot
ball game last fall, under th* direc
tion of Victor Faber.
A preliminary game will be played
by teams representing the fifth and
sixth grades. Music also will be'
presented by the grade and high
school bands, for whose benefit the
program is being staged.
Cory-Raw son Tops
Beaverdam Again
A field goal in the last eight sec
onds enabled McComb to come from
behind and defeat Cory-Rawson cag
ers, 55 to 54, last Friday night at
the Mt. Cory gymnasium, and beat
back the threat of the Eagles to ad
vance into a first-place tie for the
Hancock county league lead.
It was a heart-breaker for the
Cory-Rawson outfit who held the ad
vantage at halftime, 30 to 25, and at
the third-quarter, 47 to 39. The
winners overcame a four-point de
ficit in the last minute to come up
with the surprising victory. Mc
Dowell with 27 points was the lead
ing scorer of the game.
Last Saturday, however, Cory
Rawson trimmed Beaverdam for the
second time by a score of 54 to 52
at Mt. Cory. McDowell, tall Cory
Rawson center tallied 30 points to
lead his mates to victory. Recker
and Hull, each of whom got 15, were
high for Beaverdam.
Role of Cholesterol
Hardening of the arteries is be
lieved to be due to fat (cholesterol)
that deposits on the inner lining of
vessel walls, especially those which
supply the heart, and thus narrows
the blood’s passageway.
Thrift-Master Engine also delivers
more power with improved perform
ance.
