SftLEM TO PLAY
Game at Armory Tonight is
"Jinx" Game for Local j
Salem high school plays its an-
riual "Jinx" game here at the'ar-;
mory tonight ' ' when the locals'
meet the McMiniivllle team. Me-.
Minnville has resolutely kept out
of the slate championship clas3,
and , Salem bag as regularly brok
en, in; but McMinnville has been
scalping the locals almost ; as
regularly as the clock strikes.
Last year they did it twice, by a
one-score margin in each game;
this year they did it again, in the
first game the Salem boys had
played for the season.
; They are not expected to do it
again tonight. If the locals do
not pile up enough of a margin
to avenge ail these other microscopically-lost
games there's noth
ing in signs. -- The locals have
what roust "oo fairly class as an
extraordinary high school team if
the visitors can keep within xlht
.of them' they are good ; indeed.
The way the local boys have been
cleaning up everything excepting
this McMlnnville jinx, is an im
pressive lesson to all comers of
how basketball ought; to be
played. . "A
. The return game, with! Corval
lis high was originally ' scheduled
for Friday night, but by agree
ment it has been postponed until
next week, when fhey can play in
the OAC gym with Its full-size
floor. The , locals believe, from
what they, saw in the. game with
Corvallis here in Salem last week,
that on the bigger floor they can
make an even bigger score against
the Corvallis shooters than on the
smaller floor. The Corvallis style
of guarding and charging seems
built to order for a limited floor
space; on the really big floor the
locals expect to show some long
range speed that ought to look"
good to anybody.
Bill HunL Salem Boxer,
on Portland Program
Bill Hunt of Saleni. who 'was
to start in a four-round bout with
Bill Bletch at the Portland 4VV
Ing arena Tuesday night, didn't
appear un the program, for there
wasnt any program at all. Tfiey
called it all off because of- the
heavy snow practically destroying"
the street car service. The en
gagement holds good, however,
and Hunt is to go on when the
weather clears up, possibly Sat
urday night. Hunt got Off to a
bad start in Portland recently
when he niet a big "ringer" fight
er from Akron, Ohio; but ha is
game to show them that it was
a fluke, and that he has the stuff
in his big mitt. The Portland
boxing commission liked him well
enough to offer him a second and
better match. ;
