The Church league champion
ship has been decided In Frnlt
land's favor, and now we can turn
onr attention to the minor matter
of the state tournament. But seri
ously speaking, after getting our
first glimpse of the Church league
In action Friday night, we are
here to state that those teams
play basketball, nothing but.
Big crowds have been turn
ing oat, too; bat It's good
thimg Salem doesn't thoroughly
appreciate how good it Is, or the
whole town might turn out for
the games twice a week and be
so fed up om I-asketball by the
time tbe season was over, that
it wouldn't have the heart to
go to the state tournament.
We doubt, too, whet- er the peo
ple of Salem appreciate how much
actMty there Is at the 1. M. C. A.
most any night, with the gymna
sium constantly In use and a crowd
In the balcony watching the
. games; on Friday nights the lob
by la packed with people attend
ing tbe weekly program;, another
crowd of boys In tbe junior de
partment lobby, another down
stairs in tbe tank and the hand
ball courts upstairs la use to cap
acity; to say nothing of Tarious
classes and committee meetings
tucked in here and there.
Another sign of spring; the
appearance of the Sporting News
record book. We haven't had time
to look through it thoroughly;
but we note that Le Roy Mahaffey
of Portland was the chcmpion Iron
.arm pitcher of the world last sea
son, pHcbJpg 370 innings.
Apparently It pays to work
hard in baneball, for Mahaffey
goea p to the Athletics, and
j most of the other labor fields
I who pitched more than 300 in
, nlnga there were only 12 of
them also received proper rec
ognition. It's quite a handy little book
for a forgetful "sport expert."
Didn't find out whether It tells
which pitchers wear glasses.
Yesterday We Saw
A bootlegger talking to a cus
tomers on the stairs In a local of
fice building. This bootlegger Is
also a moonshiner. Most anybody
might be a bootlegger, but you
can always tell a moonshiner by
his habitual expression.

TITLE IS WON
South Salem 'Friends Beaten
In Church League in
The Fruitland basketball team
was crowned champion in tbe
Church league Friday night when
It won the final game of the titu
lar series from the South Salem
Friends quintet. 26 to 14.
Fruitland got the jump on the
Quakers, scoring ten points in
the first period and holding the
Friends scoreless. Sharpshooting
on the part of Girod and a break
down of the Friends' four man
defense were responsible.
In the second period tbe
Friends came back almost as
strong, Huth scoring seven points
before Fruitland found the hoop
again. The period ended with
Fruitland ahead 13 to 7. In the
second half, oddly enough, each
team scored exactly as many
points as it had in the first half.
Calvary Baptist nosed out a
victory, 21 to 18, over First
Methodist in a consolation series
game although the Methodists
played with only four men. Jason
Lee defeated the Presbyterians
28 to 22.
