With the whole team unable to

same number of points that the
whole Rock Island team did, the lo

their cherished hope of a chance to
contend for the state championship

thoroughly rattled. Wilcher made
the first two points of the game on
two free throws, but Monmouth soon
got loose and after brilliant exhibi

four baskets In succession. Before

the total to six, while White had

But one game separates the Athletics

The first half of the second game
was a pretty fight with Monmouth
(having a little the best of it, the half
ending 22 to 17. Schulz and Stuart
were the bad men for Monmouth,
getting six and five baskets respec
tively. Rankin and White of Mon
mouth made 16 fouls between them
and Walker, the Moline forward,
rolled most of the resulting free
throws in the basket. Bergston of
Moline played a star game at guard,
getting three feature baskets from
shots over half the length of the
field. In the second half Monmouth
broke away fast and Moline seemed
to lose heart, the final score being
44 to 29. The defeat would prob
ably have been greater but for the
consistent work of Walker in throw
ing the free throws, as he made 1 1
points for bis team in this manner.
