Condon Cagers Win
Continued from First Page
squad was evidently thought of as
not having a great honor attached
to it, and the boys of both teams,
seemingly aware of that fact, failed
to play as hard as they did in the
afternoon, although they put up a
good game. The outcome of the fray
was never in doubt, with Partlow
and Wilson, Boardmans stellar
players, leading the scoring attack
for their team. Skoubo and Wilson
both went out on fouls in this con
The semi-final games displayed
more exciting basketball than did
the finals, although the champion
ship Condon-Umatilla tangle did
provide more thrills than were ex
pected; for it was predicted Condon
would run away from the Vikings.
Saturday afternoon's first game
between Heppner and Umatilla took
all prizes for the best game of the
tournament. Heppner was not even
conceded an outside chance of win
ning a tournament game, but such
basketball melees seem to provide
that extra push so necessary to a
winning team, and this was the case
with Heppner. Although they won
from Irrigon, Heppner was suppos
edly a push-over for the smooth
working Umatilla outfit. Before the
game was over, everyone had
changed his or her mind. This game
won by Umatilla, 31-38, went into
an over-time period, the only one
of the tournament.
Although Montgobere, Umatilla's
all-star, put his team in the lead
with an early basket, Aiken quickly
retaliated with a field goal, and
shortly thereafter Coxen sank one
from just inside the double line.
Following that, Coxen netted two
more beautiful baskets, one on a
beautiful whirling one-handed shot
from the outer edge of the foul cir
cle, and one under the net to put
Heppner in the scoring lead by a
8 to 2 score. Bray made a lay-in
shot for Umatilla that brought his
squad's score up to 4, while Heppner
hung on to its 8 points.
The boys from the Umatilla river
area started clicking in the second
quarter and ran up 13 points while
holding the Mustangs to three tal
lies. This quarter was marked by in
numerable scrambles under the bas
ket. The half-time score was 17 to
11 for Umatilla.
Umatilla hung onto its lead in the
third quarter, with the height ad
vantage of the Vikings a deciding
factor in their favor. Brown and
Bray scored for Umatilla, while
Drake, Barratt and Coxen did the
same for Heppner. With the score
25 to 17, Umatilla on the long end
of the third quarter final, the prob
able encouraging thought of play
ing for the championship raised the
Heppner boys to scoring moods. The
Mustangs put on an offensive drive
in the last quarter of 10 points, while
Umatilla was barely able to push in
one basket, that by Gene Hiatt, the
lanky center with the high-scoring
record. Drake, bespectacled fresh
man center for Heppner, hooped a
corner shot and a free throw, with
Aiken also making a foul toss, but
Hiatt countered with a set-up. With
the scoreboard displaying large red
numbers of 27 on the Umatilla side
and 21 on the Heppner, Barratt
looped a beautiful one-hander over
his guard. Again Drake gained of
fensive notions and slapped one in
from under the basket. One minute
to go and Morgan, Heppner forward,
took the ball away from a Umatilla
ball-handler and on a solo dash,
made a lay-in shot that tied things
up at 27-all. Gene Hiatt had a chance
to give his team a victory with a
free throw, as did Brown, who was
fouled by Morgan almost simultan
eously as the final whistle blew, but
both muffed, thereby sending the
game into an over-time period.
The extra three minutes, however,
worked to the advantage of Uma
tilla, although it looked like Hepp
ner when O'Donnell made a free
throw that rosied things up for the
Mustangs. Hiatt and Bray each post
ed field goals that gave Umatilla a
31 to 28 win and the right to play
for the sub-district title.
The remaining semi-final tilt, a
scrapping game between the slightly
bewhiskered Condon team and the
showy Boardman club, started out
as though it was Condons in a walk,
with the latter in the lead at half
time, 17-7; however, Boardman
opened up with a basket barrage
that had Condon digging down to
keep ahead in the ball game. Condon
lost two men, Young and Simmonds,
on fouls in the last few minutes, but
Boardman was unable to make the

Meet cit Boardman
Schoolmasters, school aiadams,
wives and sweethearts are invited
to the mixed banquet held by the
school masters club at Boardman on
March 21 at 6:30.
The women teachers and wives of
school men have been wondering
just what happens on these monthly
ocasions when the school men meet
and seemingly have such a good
time, and so that curiosity will be
appeased. Men are cautioned to be
on their best behavior at this meet
ing which will be rather a change
from previous meetings. However,
the schoolmasters are looking for
ward to this meeting when the ped
agogues can get better acquainted
with their teaching neighbors.
An appropriate program will be
arranged and a banquet served by
Boardman P. T. A.
Coming as a surprise to their many
Morrow county friends was the mar
riage of Miss LaVelle Leathers and
Mr. Ladd Sherman at Vancouver,,

was performed by Rev. Mr. Kuns
man at his parsonage in the pres
ence of the bride's mother, Mrs.
Golda Leathers, and aunt, Mrs. C.
C. Carmichael. Both newlyweds are
teachers in the Lexington school.
Mr. and Mrs. Milton Spurlock
were week-end visitors from Ukiah
at the home of Mrs. Spurlock's
mother, Mrs. Ada Cason.
