With old Frizzell-puss languish
ing in the infirmary you are going
to get this stuff a la Hopkins.
Short short story: There was once
a bunch of the boys who were fond
of playing the game of basketball.
And all these boys went to the
same little school, where there
wasn’t so much money but the
atmosphere was nice and the food
good. And these boys practiced
and practiced, and never went out
nights and never went down to
that awful Side—in fact they were
nice boys. And these boys had a
nice coaching person, too. And this
coaching person understood the
boys, because when he was a
young man and full of the stuff
that young men are full of, he had
gone to the same school and had
played the game called basketball
and played it good, too.
And these boys played in a
kind of a league, or what they
eall a conference. And those
boys played one other school
that was considered tough. And
they rolled these boys up and
and sent them home one night,
and they got rolled up and sent
home the* next night themselves.
So they went down the road a
bit and played some boys that
were called arch-rivals. And the
boys that had lived right and
wrote IJiome to* their mothers
and studied their Shakespeare
threw the ball in the basket one
more time than the arch-rivals,
But the boys and girls that paid
to go to school didn't think so
much of this, yet. So these boys
went travelling one day, and pret
ty far, too. And they -waxed one
team one night, and they got pol
ished themselves, the next. But
then these boys got to thinking
that this wouldn’t do so they beat
it over to another place where
they had basketball boys and pro
ceeded to wax them. Not only the
first night, but the second night,
too. So then they came home. And
while they were gone one of these
other schools had been winning
some. games, and another one had
been losing some. So it got that
one school had won a lot of games
and another one lost a lot.
And so the boys and girls that
paid to go to school began to
wonder if they were going to
get to see that guy who throws
in all the baskets for a team
that plays in the southern part
of this coast. Because when that
boy gets through throwing in
baskets, he and the rest of the
boys arc going to conic up here,
and play one of the little schools
that also throws in more baskets
than the other schools.
And the reason that the boys
and girls began to wonder was
this: it so happened that this
school that won a lot of games was
going to play this school that lost
a lot of games. And this school
that lost the games was kind of
upset. So the boys and girls be
gan to think that this school that
lost the games was going to wax
this school that won all the games.
And then the boys’ and girls’
school was going to play them.
And these boys that won all the
games having now lost several
would be all nervous and they
Would then lose a couple of more.
And the boys and girls that
paid to go to school were very
joyous in thinking about this,
and about seeing this guy that
throws in all the baskets. And
this was all very good and nice,
but at this point it will be nec
essary to continue the story till
week after next Wednesday
night. But the boys and girls
that pay to go to school are
thinking anyhow, “Are we go
ing to see that guy that throws
in all those baskets?”

ATO Beats Theta Chi
20*10; Belts Trounce
Lose to Phi Psis 26-11
Yeomen 21-16; Comets
By RUSS ISELI
Jay Graybeal went to town for
Alpha Tau Omega, slipping in 9
points in the first half of their
game with Theta Chi to set his
team mates up with a half-time
lead of 14 to 4 which the Theta
Chis failed to overcome, and the
ATOs led 20 to 10 as the final
Dunn drew first blood for the
Taus, sinking a gift throw which
netted one point. Graybeal and
Dunn swelled the total with goals
from the floor and Graybeal added
another as the quarter ended with
ATO in the lead 7 to 0. Graybeal
and Stafford potted a goal apiece
before Phillips sank the first The
ta Chi score. Graybeal added a
free throw and a field goal and
Pink dropped in another Theta Chi
counter as the half ended 14 to 4.
Second Half Even
Scoring was even in the third
quarter with both teams doing
some tight checking, Wyman
scored for ATO and Phillips scored
for Theta Chi. Stafford opened the
last frame with a one-handed field
goal. Callahan and Doback fol
lowed with two in quick succession
for Theta Chi. McKenzie lifted a
long one that dropped through the
hoop as the game ended, giving the
Theta Chis 10 points to the ATOs
. Graybeal was easily the out
standing man on the floor for
either team. He was also high
point man for both with a total of
9 counters. Phillips was high for
Theta Chi with 4. The game was
played on almost even terms in the
second half but the early ATO lead
was too large to overcome.

Delts 21; Yeomen 1G
The Yeomen tumbled to their
second defeat last night at the
hands of an inspired Dclt team
who started playing over their
heads and kept right on until the
end of the game. Final score of
the game wa3 21-16.
Muser and Butler put the Celts
into an early lead, both sinking
free throws. Carlson potted a gift

give the Delts a 7 to 1 lead at the
end of the first quarter. The Yeo

7 in the second quarter, but Butler
put the Delts back in the lead with
a quick cripple as the half ended.
Delts Hit Basket
The Dolts rang up S points in
the third quarter and held the Yeo
men to a lone field goal. The Delts
were outscored, 6 to 4, in the last
quarter but their former lead was
large enough to enable them to
take the game 21 to 16.
King of the Yeomen led the scor
ing for both teams with 8 counters.
Webber, Delt, was close behind
with 7. Scruggs was easily the
outstanding man for the Delts.

In a wildly played game that
kept spectators in spasms of laugh

The first half was a comedy of
errors, 12 personals being called.

the only field goals for the SPEs
in the first half and Vic Reginato

The second half was an entirely
different story. After a foul con
version by Doug Ramsey, the Chi
Psis failed to make another point
during the game. Don Anderson
went on a- wild scoring spree for
the Sig Eps when he scored six
cripples for 12 counters. Sixteen
points were scored in the fourth
quarter by the SPEs who paraded
through the Chi Psis almost at
will. Six more fouls were called
during the second half to bring the
