SCHEDULE A LONG ONE Saxe Holds Record for (timls In One Gnnrr Frankel Has Great est Total. The New Riven High srhool should be proud of having had such h gond representative team, as the High school basketball team. The quintet, the members of which had very llitlo practice together, made a brilliant' showing. After starting the season poorly imth linancliihy and In playing, the team took a brace mid cme out ahead In both dnii.ii lini'iiis. Their sche dule was a very King and hard one, having the hardest lllh S' hool basket ball teams In the suie on It. The brace which the local boys took towards t tie latter part of the basket ball season was certainly remarkable. Many ol the other lllgu school quin tets were sadly surprised and disap pointed when they found that I hey bad beun beaten by what they supposed to be a cinch. This was dim to tho good work tt nil the members on the team, who worked earnestly and diligently. Baxe and Frankul, the two crack for wards of thu local hlJi quintet, played great basketball. Their vnrk aroused iniiolt commendation, buth from outside teams and spectators. Their shooting was accurate and eftectlve. In one of the games played they both together scored 40 points out of 44 points made, and In another game, which was against tho strong U'ai.erbury live thev secured :!() points out of the 24 male. Uy repeating this good work In nianv games they established a wondecfu'l record, llesides being crack shots they also did tine passing and played a good blocking game. fiaxc, on the other band played a god passing game throughout the sea son. He was unable to'iTTiy during the early part of the season, but made up for this during the time he did plav. While he played with the team the'y only lost three games, which was partly dueto his fine work. The record for the highest number of goal, shot In one game u held bv feaxe, who had a total of 12. He secured the next nignest number also, which wng 8. Frankel always proved a close second In netting goals. Frankel ulso shot many fouls. Captain Jiiistln, who played center, also did great work. He had many stn: players against him, and made a good showing against thnm. He got tho lump on many of bis opponents there by helping his side Immensely. n made many goals during the season. They were very needy ones, too. ' Alderman, Starkweather, 'onnollv. t.crau and Koletsky completed the squad. Koletsky played only In threo games during the early part of the sea son, and little chance was given to see what he could do. Starkweather stnrted to play In the middle of the season at guard. Although lie was un able to secure a goal thrniiRliout the season, his blocking was slniplv great. He played against many slur forwards, and by his diligent blocking prevented many of them from even securing one basket. Alderman, who not onlv played a good shooting game, played also a star blocking game. It was very seldom that his man got many goals. In fact he always got a head, of his man and would make many pretty shots, lie was used many times as forward, ami mado a very creditable showing. Mu played against the roughest men on the opposing teams, and never pl ayed any thing but straight basketball. Frmser was another star guard. He was nnableto play In many games also, as received nn Injury In one of the early games. However, when he did play it always could be noticed, for bis phenomenal shots always told. 'on riolly. another guard, also plnved a very fast game. No matter how big his op ponent was, Connolly was always nn deck and played his game, fierau, who was a substl'tinle forward, was given little chnnce In many games. Many of these players eould easily make an all-state Interseholnstlc quin tet If there wns to be one chosen. The standing of the different players follows: Games Goals.

Practice for the candidates for the Valo football elevens of next fall be gan at Ya'le field yesterday afternoon and 35 new men showed up for work. The practice consisted In punting and pnsslng and starts and lasted nly about an hour. The work was under tho direction of Captain Burch and Head Coach Blglow, who was captain of last fall's championship eleven. The number of men who are on ths baseball nine who also play football was the cause of not more men com ing out for practice yesterday. As sistant Conch Tad Jones, who will de velop a quarterback to take his place on the team, la captain of the baseball team and will be unable to give the football men any ' attention , this spring. Wheaton, Murphy, Phllbln and Coy, who have the positions. In the backfield on the eleven, all play on the nine. . Hohbs, who played. during the last fall on the second eleven, because o his disqualification for varsity work on account of having played prev iously on Dartmouth, was out with Burch and Blglow yesterday and help ed with tho new men. He will, In all probability, be ono of the regular tackles on tho eleven next fall. A punting contest will take place the hitter part of next week and will last two or three days. The entries In the contest who mako the best dis tances, will receive cups as prizes. FALSEY IS CAPTAIN. Chosen by IlHrra lo Lend N. H. II. 8, Xlnc Against Vole Freshmen. Falscy, one of the outfielders of the New H.tven high school nine, was ap pointed captain yesterday by Harra, who has been debarred from playing by tho faculty. Fulsey Is a good player and showed excellent form throughout last season. Ho will lead the boys In Saturday's gamo against tho Yale freshman. Harra, although unable to play In games, has been out dally and has assisted In the practice. The candidates put In much practice at tho Westvllle ground yesterday, be ing given Holding and batting practice. Coach Hackctt took charge of the boys and kept them on the Jump. He did some batting and coached them on sys tematic work. Mr. Bencher will also be out to coach the boys, and has stated that he Intends to secure one of the col lege pitchers tu come out to-day. Mcsslnger, who captained last sea son's championship eleven at tho local high, showed up for the first time yes terday for practice, and was tried out at second base. While a freshman at tho school, ho wns captain of hto class baseball team, which won the class championship. Tommcrs, last year's high school baseball captain, and Beck crt, who also played on lust year's nine, were members of this team. Mcsslnger is a heavy liltter and a good fielder and ought to make gooa. uuring yes terday's practice ho wns unable, to do much good lidding, as he Injured his wrist badly during tho early part of the practice. His work with the stick, however, was good. There are two small men uof for the team, Sullivan, and Lapldos, Sullivan Ih ,1 good player, but will have lo work hard to mako good as many other good men urn also put for the same position I.apldcs, who Is out for catcher, Is tho only man besides Blakeslee out for that position. Inpldes, who Is barely five feet tall, has been doing great work. His good fielding and work 'at the bat Is very noticeable, If ho continues his good work he will prove to be a worthy understudy to Blakeslee, tho star en Iclief. Two teams were chosen yesterday, Tab wns kept on the players, nnd those who showed up the best will probably bo given: 11 chance In the game Saturday. Mr. Harra umpired the ifitino, As present Indications show, It looks ns if Ha Dicker will start the work on the slab for the high school In their game Saturday, (Irodske, no doubt, will also bo given a chance to show his ability, Tho high school boys will prohibly be up ngalnst Toniiners In this gnme.
