LA GRANDE EVENING OBSERVER,
LOGftL CD-ED QUIEitET
Cove co-ed players were given a de
cisive drubbing last evening In the
high school gymn when the La Grande
high school girls defeated their worthy
adersarles by a score of 15 to. 12.
The narrowness of the margin be
tween scores was due to a well con
nected burst of 'speed by the visiting
playiers at the very last of the game
and though it reduced the lead, did
not materially jeopardize the outcome
of the contest.
Miss Olive Massee started the scor
ing for La Grande and wHh tares goah

po'nts before her. colleague got her
eye working right and soon after the

rapid succession. With an occasional

play and lacked accuracy in shooting
baskets. While La Grande's team work
was ragged it accomplished more in
that the scores were registered the
real objective point. ;

forwards covered closely but. In the

' Invitations have been received by
'the La Grande high school to enter
teams In the Corvallis and Eugene
meets in May. With one presumably
coming from Walla Walla, three
tplendid trips will beln store for about
four of the local team and should
;act as an Incentive to draw out many
candidates for the squad. The merits
'of the team is a matter still too early
to discuss with any degree of cer
tainty but there is a positive attrac
j tlofl In the way of long trips. In ad
( dition there la the Ontario meet.
' Boththe Oregon meets will : at
tract people from all over the state
I and, as the number from each school
1b Hmltedthere wm be moire uit
J than at the Walla Walla meets, where
In years past,' any number could at
, tend by paying their own way. It is re
ported that Whitman will inaugurate
a similar ruling this year. i- : ) ;
As to the Oregon meets, the schools
are In competition and there Is going
to be the very best sort of treatment
accorded the athletes at both schools.
