Ashland w6rj the state high school basketball championship
last iiight in the final of the state tournament, with a decisive
score of 45 to 22 against Pendleton, the runners-tip.
It wag rather" an upset in this prophetic "dope," for while
Ashland .nad eome with a formidable reputation, the Pendleton
Duckaroos brought beef and blood and brawn and skill that had
made them the general favorites for the-1 pennant. They bad
played a slashing game in the semi-finals, crushing the Eugene
team that bad been supposed to be fairly a match for the Ash
landers, by a score of 35 to 21.
. In the finals, the Ashland team
opened, up with a speed and ac
curacy" that simply dazzled and
bewildered the Uulldoggers. They
danced' ever the floor light as
fairies, swift as thadows. sure as
fate. No such ball has been rteen

" The Pendleton team has some

the tournament. But for sheer
speed the Ashlanccra surpassed
them; for shooting, the Ashland

Ashland Itooter Come
The Ashland team bad a .riotous
team of 60 or more "rooters,"
many of them girls, who put on
the clevterest yelling that has
been shown in Salem this year.
Their yell leader Is a whole tour
nament in himself. The final
verdict was profably one of se
cret if not expressed satisfaction.
The Ashland team is certainly a
bona fide high school team, and
wefl wlthtin the interscfiolastic
age of 21 years. A general doubt
was expressed whether certain.

Cowboy players will ever see the
age of 21 until their next rein-1

In the semi-finals Saturday af

Buckaroos were the faster, heav

the game tbey were superior.
Their guarding was of the air
tight kind. Seldom did a Eugene
man get past for a good shot.
The speed shown by the Pendle
ton team made them look like the
logical champions of the tourna
ment. They played the kind of
ball one would expect from pow
erful men of their build, though
rteither W. Kramer nor Holmgren,

Ashland 28; Astoria 27
What a little different drawing
might have meant for the tourna
ment, was curiously shown in thi
case of Astoria. This gallant
team, after playing the heaviest
schedule ot the tournament, lost
in the semi-finals to Ashland, by
the narrowest score of 28 to 27;
nd they gave the Ashlanders
the scare of their lives in hold
ing the scora so close. Indeed
there was at first a question
whether the Astorians hadn't won
a clean victory, for while the ref
eree had whistled for a held ball.
and officially stopped the play
Diamond, th9 Ostoria center, did
not recognize the signal in the
babel of sound that filled the hall
and threw a basket just as the
gun signaled for the end of the;
game." As the ball had been of
ficially dead before the throw was
started, of course it could not
count, so the score of 28 to 27
in favor of Ashland, stood instead
of 29 to 28 for Astoria.
, Had Ashland me. Pendleton for
the semi-finals, and cleaned them
as they did in the finals; and had
Astoria drawn Eugene for the
semi-finals, there might easily
have been a championship in As

it starts with a "battle royal,"
with four Salem high athletes in
the ring. This is staged with
four husk'es, the two Frazier
brothers. John Caughill, and
Don Ringle. All these boys have
been boxing pretty steadily this
winter, and the man who sur
vives after putting the other three
out of the ring is going to look
like a world's champion. The cur
tain goes up promptly at 7:30.
Four wrestling matches are be
ing put on with Chemawa.
Rryson of Chemawa and Post
of Salem will meet at 160 pounds.
Bryson is unknown here in town,
but he s claimed to be a whirl
wind out at his home, and Post
is one of the most consistent
winners in the Salem squad.
H. Jackson of Chemawa will
meet Blankenship at 140 pounds.
This is another good promise, as
Blankenship ranks well with his
mates here in Salem, and they
believe Jackson is a coming
champion at Chemawa.
Hansen of Chemaw and "Bill"
Wright will go at 136 pounds, and
M. Jackson of the Indians will
take on Noske of Salem at 135.
The Indians have been working
steadily for ' the past several
weeks. At the time of their last
meeting they did not show much
dinary strength, and if they have
taken on some skill to boot, they
ought to make even the clever
est of the local lads go to their
top speed to hold them even.
Ellis White, captain or the
Salem team. was to have met
Williams of Chemawa, but an In
jury received in training has
forced this match off the card.
Two inter school boxing match
es are to be offered. The first is
between "Jew" Beskert, rated as
a whirlwind from the Indian
camp, and Lorenzo Perry of Sa
lem, at 120 pounds. Perry won
over his Indian opponent In their
last match, but In the substitu
tion of Beckert the Chemawa
boys believe they have a sure
winner over the clever Perry.
This will be for four rounds. Min
thorn of Chemawa is to meet
Henningsen of alem at 130
pounds. .Minthorp has been work
ing out with Krim. the flashy In
dian lightweight, and is rated as
a fast, clever boxer. Henningsen
too. has been working with a fast
professional boxer, and is ex
pected to show in the speed class.
Two other bouts are to be
staged between Salem hi eh box
ers. One is between Ellis Welty
and Don Warden, at 126 pounds.
The other is between Rex Adolph.
and Burris at 175 pounds. These
will be for three rounds.

There are many guesses for the

in its bringing v representatives
from every district, and in the
quality that they show." r
Out of almost everv team could
be chosen on? or two especial

would probably be a choice ol
