From Basketball Court At Mary Talbot Home _ —oOo Raleigh A smooth well built basket ball court has been made on a vacant lot adjacent to the Mary Talbot Home playground for the use of City children in that ground director and assistant coach Community by Mr John Baker, play of Athletics in the local high school. The Carolina Tribune, Arhat we’ve seen there w 11 be plen t y of action and how, if you’re there watch Durham, rinehurst, Wrilson,- Smithliled, and Raleigh along with the others. } V/e pick the Wash ngton High -agers of Raleigh to be the class of the tour Hey, on their past record of 12 wins three losses and 10 straight victories and the abil ity to bear down when the occas ion demands, along with smooti passing, good shooting, strong ’ de fense and a definite aggregation, we feel that these lads might go a long way but you can never tell anyth ng cDa happen so don’t mis* it. THOUGHTS We wonder if the absolute intolerance for player in subordination on the part of Coaches Williams and Baker at Washington High accounts in any part for theil’ athletic success this yera. year. We remember how they took the uniform from Johnny Jones, foot ball captain and Joe Watkins, ace quarterback from Kittrell because, these Coaches preferred to run the team themselves. After losing these two stars before the season open ed they started with nothing and evolved one of the best grid out fits in this section. Then in basketball Haggle Smith and Bo Crump, two of the nicest cage stars in North Carolina, have been benched or- yanked when when they demonstrated the least b t of that element that means the ruin’ng a team. Other of our less successful teams haven’t seemed to have had the advantage so that kid of rigorous' training. The court is fairly smooth and will be much better when it has been used some. The backboards are very substantial and are pla c " de on iron poles, set in cement bases. The baskets are attached i'irmly and Coach Baker plans to develop a regular basketball team at the playground to play the mi nor h’gh teams. All youngsters in that section that the playground accomodates will be taught the game and will rceeive exercise a nd recreation. oaints Record i weirm Straight uom erence Loss oOo ■- - ixpieigh ine St. oasKeioaii squua returnea last wceK from a' tour ot va.. will*, unee uexeats in as many games .un-ung tne.r string ot consecutive -onierence losses to IZ as against uo conference wins.
