In Basketball Scoring

ablished their all-time basketball
scoring record last night, defeat
ing the Guatemala Olympics,

mark was 111 in 1938 against an

THE CREAT ATLAS displays the muscular arms and shoulders
with which ha will endeavor to conquer Georges Dusatte, the
Herculean French-Canadian, in the headliner of the weekly
wrestling program at tha Roseburg armory tonight. Both grap
plers are full-neslon hold specialists, and anything can happen.
Full-Nelson Battle On Tap
In Three-Star Mat Show
A full-nelson battle, Involving two of the most muscular grap
pling giants in the junior heavyweight class, will feature a three
star wrestling show at the Roseburg armory arena Saturday night.
Time of the opener will be 8:30 p. m., and a capacity crowd appears
The heavy-muscled principals are The Great Atlas, a former "Mr.
America" from Hollywood, and Georges Dusette', a French-Canadian
who has one of the greatest following of any matman In the j
nation. With bulging shoulder and arm muscles, the two grapplers
are almost certain to have to resort to some tactics other than full
nelsons, headlocks and the like. It should be a classic in which the
ability of the winner to adapt himself to a situation is the answer.
Two other burly matmen will vie In a three-fall skirmish, sending
Maurice LaChappele, France, against Leo Wallick, Boston. Pete
Bartu, a villainous New Mexico grappler, meets Dale Kiser, young
Portlander, in the curtain raiser.

About the only deception came

duced a touchdown. It came after
a 46-yard march to the Marsh
field 20-yard line. It was the old
statue of liberty play and half
back Chuck Brackett lugged the
ball 20 yards for a touchdown.
That tied the score at 6-6, and

for the extra point failed. But
Marshfield was offside and La
Grande got a second chance. This
