The first game of the city champi
onship series between the Bandon
high school and All Star basket ball
teams at Dreamland pavillion Sat
urday night, resuked in a victory for
tho high school. The All Stars play
ed a fast game and kept the ball in
constant motion. Likewise the higl
schools. It was cold nnd tho science
of playing was at times secondary to
tho science of keeping the blood in cir
culation and warming up,
The high school boys led all through
tho game although the score was tied
at the end of the first half it did not
remain tied long and the concluding
score was 23. to 10. The high school
boys team work and practice told and
they usually managed to keep tho ball
in the vicinity of their basket.

school line up because of the grip but
