The contest will start tomorrow
with both teams on about the same
basis. Canton has the edge on the
Islanders in experience, having al
ready played four games but the
fact that the locals are fighting on
their own floor makes the matter
about even. Canton invades Rock
Island with a wonderful record,
hav'ng this season defeated Elm

tournament, twice and Peoria Man

central district. The down state

All of these men are top-notcher3

it's hardest to come out ahead.
Although Canton has a whirlwind
team the locals are confident of
starting the game with a better
one. Henke, star center, is without
a peer In the gentle art of fighting
for the ball under the basket and it
would be wise if the Canton coach
provided his center with a pair of
stilts if he wants him to out-jump
"Dude." Henke has played a whirl
wind game in every contest so far
this year and is one of the Island
ers' main stays when it comes to
getting points. His .11 around play

for a mighty team will depend upon
him a good deal:

Parks, an all-tournament man last

NETS LEGION A
In a sham battle staged by the
Rock Island American Legion's
basketball, team against a Canton
team of ex-soldiers, casualties were
few, but the slaughter was dread
ful. Withal, the scrimmage was a
good-natured one, and during the
last half took on the general ap
pearance of a basket-shooting drill,
with little opposition offered the
local shooters in their pastime.
The whole situation arose from
the fact that while once upon a
time the Canton men were fairly
good players, they have practiced
infrequently with poor facilities
this season, and have not met an
other team before. Add to this that
they were outclassed by weight,
and their condition is seen as it
was hopeless. .
At the end of the first half the
score was 37 to 9. One lucky field
goal was tossed in by Captain Hlp
pler, Geneseo's principal scorer,
the only counter marked up for
them in tht second half. During
the same period the Legion men
threw 26 baskets.
The lineups were as follows:
Rock Island Fosdick and At Ta
ber at forwards, Oak Smith at cen
ter, Morris and Heimbeck, guards;
substitutes, Durllng for Morris. Ed
Taber for Al Taber, Auld for Helm
beck (also changes in position).
