Many a housewife preparej a hnsty lunch and hurried o(T to the Armory with her husband to see the "big -show". At 7.30 o'clock .the bleachers and ttn rows of seats were (illcd by a happy, sport-loving crowd. Fully one-third of the audience were niembers of the gentler sex.

On the next toss up Fisk got the ball and nfler taking it down, took a try, but his i-hot went wild, and then for at least ten shots, Company I) could not get one in, and it was not one man's hard luck, but ali of them, as evcry m in had at least one try for it. The ball then was 'taken by New port, and travelled back and forth lo euch ba ket, both teams showing good passing although the locals' work was by far the best of the two Mossa got hold of the ball a couple of times at this stage of the game, and in slcad ot' passi ng to one of the two Newport men that stood under Com pany J ) s basket unguurtlcri, he tn-.l and mis! ed loth times.

Thesc baskets were mudo, one euch by Mossa and Akin and the other two by Bigelow. Mossa' basket was onc of thosc long oncs that he had been trying to get ali evening. Morrison got the. first one for the locals, and was quickly followed by Emery for two, . and Ashton for another, bis going to the backboard twice before dropping through. Bigelow scored the next one on a pass from Akin but was quickly fol lowed by Emery who shot a nicè one handed basket, and he by Morrison, who got one after making a couple of attempts Then Mossa got another and was quickly followed by Bigelow, after which Mossa carne back for an other. From then on Ashton showed lots of gameness on the floor, and he stoppcd many passes that looked like sure starters for baskets, besides stopping any and i'll of the visitor. Emery was the heavy scorer in this period for the locals, while Bigelow starmi for the visitors, both of the mon getting four npiece. , The visiting referee regarding whose decisions there was some crit ieism was conducted to the door by a sell'-appointcd committee.

The game kept up at the sanie pace that it had started, the ball beili,; on the go ali the timo, ani! Ashton getting hold of it, under Nc.v port's brsket, dropped it in. Then both teams had many tries .tt tho bask ;t, and were unfortunatc in their shooting, niissing apiiarently easy shois right under the basket. On the next scramble, Fisk got a crack in the fa-e, and tinie bari to be calici! while he got straighte ned out. When play was resumed, Ni wport iot hold of the ball, and after tries by ali the nien of the team, Bigelow i-ucceeded in dropping it in. The game was getting faster and muglici, and Ashton and lais roughed it up for a while, Ashton holding his own, to the dclight of the crowd. Fisk getting, the ball showed good floor work nt this stage of the game, but Iost the ball half way down the hall,, and again Massa who got hold of it, tried too long a sho wb.'n he had the chance to pass to one of his men under the basket. Company then'go hold of the ball, and after Morrison and Emery had both taken a. free try. the fornici- onc got an other tally for the Company. Follow ing the toss up at center the ball was lost in the crowd and' Bigelow who had to jump with Lanpher at the side of the hall, knocked the ball into the crowd three times in succession. This was near the Newport basket and after Mossa had taken a shot, getting the ball - from the toss-up. Ashton took the ball down, and miss- ed the basket by a dose margin, but Fisk got the ball from the board, and quickly dropped it in. The passing shown bere by the lo cals was of the best, the whole team getting their hands olito the ball for a gooil pass and catch. The ball traveled both ways of the hall at high speed for a few niinules at this stage, both teams getting trics at the basket many of the shots missing by just a hair.. Fisk again showed that he is one of the fastest individuals that has played in this town, by the case that 'he took the ball down, although he missed the try. Newport got the ball down to their basket, and after tries by I lavisi and Mossa, Akin succeeded in getting the ball in. Bigelow had hard luck after getting the ball, following a try by Ashton for Company I). Again Mos sa passed up a good chance for a bas ket for the Newport team when he iliade a long try, when he had a man waiting under bis basket. Morrison iliade two pretty tries l'ioni difiìcujt positions, and missed both, but Fisk quickly caged it when he got it under the basket. The ball was again in the air for some time, first one team then the other having it under their basket, and was finally dropped in by Morrison from the cen ter of the hall, it being one of the piettiest of tho game. Fisk, whose work was of the srnsational kind oa the floor through this period, showed that lie was not ali gone, when he took the ball down through the whole visiting team, but missed the basket as the whistle blew for the end of the period. St Johnsbury had scored eight baskets to Newport's three. Re- ! feree Boisvert referred this period ! which was of twenty minutes, and his work was sutisfactory to both teams bis decisions being given quickly. i The second period was delaycd for j a long time, as seats had to be placet! I around the hall for the Newport root- its that. had comi with the team. This took up mach of the playing space, j although the second prriod was even , faster' than the first one, the visitors 1 starting in with the idea of winning j the game. The visiting referee eull ed six fouls on the locals in the last period. His decisions were eheered by lhe Newport rooters while the St. j Johnsbury crowd felt he was rubbing it into the loca! team unjustly. j The Ncwports got the ball on the start and made. the game vcry lively, ki'pin? the bai! under their own bas- Lincoln has a cooperative crean', ery that is a reni success.

CHESLEY pù 1 Special Train Brings Xewport Crowd to Game The City of Ncwpoit was well rep rescnted at tho championship baski't ball game between Company L and Company II at the Armory last night and the 100 or more rooters from Vermont's newest city were vcry vo ciferous in their cheering for the home-town militi boys. The special train hearing the New port aggregation left that city t G.43 ! but due to delay enroute did not ar rivo in the St. Johnsbury station un ti! nine o'clock. The longest delay was at Lyndonville when the train was held up for a half hour or more awaiting orders. The trip down was vcry pleasant, the crowd enjoying themselves by singing and raising a racket gener ally. Some of the boys occupied their time playing pitch in the smok ing car Evcrybody was in a jolly mood and kept things humming ull the time. The train made three stops tnroute, at Orleans, Barton and Lyndonville, , g,, pavmcnt and balance picktng up rooters at each station. 1 , . , , The Orleans and Barton cowd WCre!same aS l'Cnt. Also SCVCral for the mo.it part loyal supporters of j VÌlUlge pi'OpertieS and tlll'CC Company L while the Lyndonville J f-'jjig jQ gJJ clown seemeu io iavor company i. There was lots of Newport money on the train but because of the faet "there were few nien.aboard who were I not out for the home team, little of this money was "coverei!." By the time the "gang" from the shores of Memphreniagog Lake had ! arrivcd the Armory, the first pe- i riod of the game was over. This causcd considerablo disappointment j to the visitors who had looked for-. ward to seeing the whole contest. The Newport crowd made a great . imprcssion as they stormed the door ; of tho Armory and clamorcd for seats or standing places. Evcry inch of spaco had been taken up by the St. Johnsbury sport fans long before the Newport traili arrivcd and it was nec- ; essary for the ushers to scurry around i and gather in extra chairs and place ; them in front of the stands. This j operation required several minutes while the crowd al ready seated wait-1 ed inipatiently for the second period j to start. I The rooters from the North cheer-! ed lustily as their favorite trotted i out onto the floor ami tooK up men positions. The knowledge that the home folks were in the audience serv- od to put new life in the Company L boys and started the linai pcriou withsnap and dash. A notable featurc of the game was the fine playing of Sani Davis nt forward and "Don" .Akin at conte.". This is the first time during the sea iii that Davis has play ed and he cei- tainly acquitted himself admirably. i His speed was ìemarkable and he wa i j always on the job. Akin played liis j usuai fine gami". "Billy" Mossa wasj the rea! star of the game on the j Newport side. The only mistake Mòssa inaile was that he did not pass the hall as freely as he should have j but scemed to be anxious to make i long shots. Mossa, it is true, possesscs a M'iy good shooting eye but long shots are a diffìcult thing and should not be at tempted too often. Mossa is sniall in stature but has the strength and gameness of a giant and in ali of the sciambles he was always on top. He kept his head and played a good natured game throughoul. Bigelow sccured fivc baskets and would have dono better had he not ben so closc ly guarded bjf Ashton. Jiminy Jone-.i "was tliere" ali the time. John Brouietto was congratulata! by the Newport fans for the fine way in which he handled the econdie riod. Ho was more strict than predecessor in the first half. He cali ci! six fouls on the St. Johnsbury team, Ashton being tho victim niost f renuenlly Fidlowing the game the Newport cfowd stayed for the dance.
