LEROY PURDY BASKETBALL (Grace Riley) The whistle blows, the Meeker aud Steamboat Basket Ball teams assem ble ou the field and take their respec tive places. A gain we hear the shrill whistle, we see Josephine and the Steamboat center both Jump to hit the ball. The game has started. The ball Is here, there and everywhere, our girls are equally as hard to keep track of. Now our forwards have the hall and as one of them throws for the basket, a deep wave of silence sweeps over the crowd, only to break out in a deafening volley of cheera. from our side if she makes It and from the other side if she mimes. Then before we realize It. the hall Is again In play. Soon the whistle shrieks its cry to stop. Oue of the girls has fouled, which means a free throw for the opposite side. The game keeps on in this manner, with one minute stops between quarters and ulsmt eight minute rent between halves. Towards the end of the game the time keeper calls ‘Two Minutes'. Only two minutes more to play-. The girTs piny fast and furious. "One Minute". Before we realize it, the whistle calls Out, "That's All". Next the shouts and cheers' hum of cars starting, people asking "What Is the score?”, the cheers of Meeker team for Mtenmlsmt. and Vice versa and the general hum drum that, always follows a game. Again the question “What was the score?" "Twenty six to eleven in fav or of Steumboat. hut those Meeker girls certainly played a good game and put up u hard fight, they displayed ex cellent team work, and after some more hard strenuous practise, they are going to be a team that is hard to bent," and the kind person who an swered our question moves on with the crowd. After the usual preliminaries of get ting transportation for the players, for the game to lie held in Craig, the Assembly of Mocker High was delight fully entertained Octolier the fifth by two members of the faculty.
