They are followedhy another series, the “Answer to theChallenge” in which representativesol organizations dealing with peacegive their solutions.During this quarter CcnstantineOumansky will present the Sovietrnion’s answer to the challenge ofpeace on February 12. Dr. Hu Shih,the Chinese ambassador to this coun¬try, who will receive an honoraryL.L.I). degree at the Winter convoca¬tion. will give the viewpoint of Chinaon February 19. Italy will be repre¬sented by Professor Bruno Rpselliwho will present the Fascist stand onworld peace. Harry Hawkins, Chiefof the Division of Reciprocal Trade.Agreements, will give the answer ofthe United States government to thechallenge of world peace; however, hewould not consent to speak until hewas promised that his lecture wouldnot be reported in the newspapers..As yet no Nazi speaker has beenarranged. Collin Ross was scheduledto speak some time this month, butthe Student Council of InternationalHouse voted that it would not be ex¬pedient to have a Nazi speaker at thistime because of the feeling againstthe Nazis among many members ofthe house.Before the end of the year, the an¬swer of religions to problems of worldpeace will be given by Catholic, Jew¬ish, and Protestant speakers.Included among the speakers lastquarter were Clifton Utley, Directorof the Committee on Foreign Rela¬tions who spoke on “Central Europeand World Peace,” Bertrand Russellwhose topic was “Munich and After,”and Edward C. Carter, Secretary gen¬eral of the Institute of Pacific Rela¬tions, who spoke on “Far East andW’orld Peace.”Heilperin Talks onNationalism, Autarchyspeaking on “International Nation¬alism and Autarchy,” Dr. MichaelHeilperin of the University of Higherl.earning International in Geneva,-Switzerland will conclude his seriesof two lectures today at 4:30 in theSocial Science Assembly Room. ‘Under the auspices of the depart¬ment of Economics and the divisionof the Social Sciences, Dr. Heilperin<liscussed “International MonetaryStabilization” at his first lecture yes-teiday. The lecture is open to the Hutchins LaudsLiberty at DinnerFor McDonaldPresident Robert M. Hutchins lastnight introduced James G. McDonald,former League of Nations High Com¬missioner for Refugees, at a dinnergiven at the Standard Club in Mc¬Donald’s honor. The partial text ofHutchins' address follows:“W'e meet tonight to rescue ourfellow-men, now submerged under theworst wave of brutality that moderntimes have seen. The wave gainsstrength and momentum. The worldthat is free of it shrinks every day.We who enjoy the blessings of libertysee now how little all other blessingsavail when this one is lost. Power,prestige, wealth, and even peace arenothing when the eminent dignity ofthe person is sacrificed to the state.W’e meet not merely to rescue ourfellow-men, but also to combat theNew Darkness, the dark doctrine ofracism and statism. Every man andwoman everywhere who values liber¬ty and enlightenment, every man andwoman who values the human spiritmust do whatever can be done tothwart the advance of this menacinggloom.“If our individual efforts seemslight and inadequate to cope with amovement that is assuming worldproportions, we can at least, as in¬dividuals, do our part to save the vic¬tims of it. Since we do not knowthem, since they live far away, it ishard for us actually to feel the im¬pact of their suffering....”Kerivin Speaks atIntdiouse forVoters LeagueSeveral public figures prominent inCook County and Illinois politicswill be among those speaking at In¬ternational House Monday in ameeting sponsored by the Hyde ParkLeague of Women Voters and thedepartment of Political Science of theUniversity.The theme of the one-day meetingis “The Effect of Political Partieson the Administration of Govern¬ment” and will be discussed byJerome Kerwin, a.s.sociate professorof political science; Peter Angsten,chairman of the Illinois IndustrialCommission; J. Leonard East, fifthward committeeman; and ElmerSchnackenberg, .state representativefrom the thirteenth district.Other speakers include Robert Tay¬lor, secretary of the Illinois ElectionCommission; and Noble Puffer, coun¬ty superintendent of schools. A lunch¬eon to be attended by Mayor Kellyhas also been arranged for 12:30.Professor Kerwin who is scheduledto begin the proceedings at 10 willdiscuss “The Organization and Ac¬tivities of Political Parties.” Themeeting is open to the general publicbut reservations for the luncheonwhich is eighty-five cents may bemade before tomorrow noon by call¬ing Hyde Park 4820.general public and admission is free.(filson Discusses Civil Liberties,Fascism, Labor Before Chapel Union“Students cannot escaj)e responsi-liility for helping to form publicf'pinion. If it is to be sound and sanethey must become more understand¬ing concerning the fundamental is¬sues which confront all of us.” TheseWords keynote the address to be de-livei-ed by Mary B. Gilson, assistantl>rnfe.ssor of Economics, before a gen¬eral meeting of the Chapel Unionf^unday evening at 8:15, in the IdaNoyes theatre.In her speech, which is entitled‘Students and Problems in 1939,”Miss Gilson will point to three fieldswhich students must study. She asksthat student^ know what they can<io to protect civil liberties and makedemocracy a living reality. Theyoiust also decide whether Fascism ist'‘uly the beautiful and inevitable newideology” which its advocates de¬clare it is, whether they have anyrespect for the dignity of man orconsider him only an automaton, whether they subscribe to the tor¬turing of human beings on the basisof race and religion, and whetherthey believe war to be character-de¬veloping, as do Hitler and Mussolini.The third field of study. Miss Gil¬son believes, is the state of labor re¬lations and social welfare in thiscountry. The labor situation, the so¬cial security program, the necessityfor decent housing and living condi¬tions, and the issues at stake inachieving these things should all bea part of the students’ program.“Work, and less play in the ac¬quiring of knowledge and judgmentshould be the serious aim of everystudent in 1939,” is the conclusionwhich she reaches.The Chapel Union meeting atwhich Miss Gilson will speak is opento all students. The time of the meet¬ing has been Set so that it wdll notinterfere with the evening Epiphanyservice. Committee SetsBid Prices ForWashington PromSocial C-Book HoldersCharged $3.50; Others$3.75.The price of bids for the Washing¬ton Prom, February 21, will be $3.50for holders of Social C-Books and$3.75 for others, the Prom Commit¬tee announced yesterday. Because ofthe high cost of bringing Jimmie■ Lunceford and his orchestra to cam¬pus this is a slight increase over lastyear’s price of $3.25.Lunceford’s band is well known andpopular in the East and South. Withthe closing of an engagement at theexclusive Kit Kat Klub in New Yorkhe began playing at New York’sfamed Band Box in November. Atthe Band Box as well as at the KitKat he has broadcast regularly overnation-wide hook ups and once madea trans-Atlantic broadcast. Lunce¬ford and his company are known fortheir ver.satility and technical pro¬ficiency in producing swing music.With four top-notch arrangers intheir midst, the Lunceford troup canproduce anything from the hottestjam-session to the sweetest melody.Jimmie himself perfers rythmicdanceable music to the hot noisy typedemanded by the “jitter-bug public.”Plans for the beautification ofBartlett Gym provide for decorationsof “simple, formal, modernistic de¬sign.” The committee believes thissimplicity will not only keep expensesdown, but will also be a refreshingI change from the elaborate decora-I tions of the past.The Committee expects JimmieLunceford’s name to draw the biggestcrowd of the Prom’s long history.However, spacious Bartlett Gym hasone of the few available floors largeenough to accommodate such an ag¬gregation, and with attractive decora¬tions will as always be an ideal placeto hold the traditional affair.^^Twelfth Nighters”Revel Tonight atIda Noyes HallStudents Will Dance,Swim, Bowl, Play BridgeFrom 8 to 12.“No strings attached,” says promo¬ter of the Twelfth Night Revel forwhich Ida Noyes wdll be thrown opentonight from 8 until 12.

Neither girls nor menwill need dates to enjoy the party,according to promises of Ida Noyesand Reynolds Club Councils to pro¬duce plenty of partners for everyone.Highlight of the evening’s majorceremony, at which Dean Gilkey willnot appear in tights, is the burningof the Christmas greens, with theMadrigal Singers leading in the lastcarols to be sung this season.

Book Better WrittenThan Last Year’s, SayJudges.Isadore Richlin, author of lastyear’s Blackfriars’ show, “Where inthe World,” has done it again! Lastnight the Board of Superiors an¬nounced that his entry in this year’scontest was selected from the ninesubmitted for the 1939 version oftheir annual production.With this announcement Richlin, agraduate student in the departmentof Chemistry, becomes the first stu¬dent to write two complete Black¬friars’ scripts. And the whole thinghas left Blackfriars, the judges, andincidentally Mr. Richlin a bit dazedby the experience.Last year’s comedy went back intodays medieval. This year’s renvainsmodern and opens first on a popularcampus spot, then jumps to Holly-\\ood, and finally ends up in sunnyMexico. The finale is a riotous bullfight a la Mexico, which should pro¬vide the directors plenty of opportun¬ity for a colorful ending.Judges of the manuscripts, PercyBoynton, Nels Fuqua, and HamiltonColeman, according to Blackfriars,were amazed at the improvement inhis writing since last year.Board Is SmugThe Board of Superiors, however,in commenting about the announce¬ment, treated the news a bit moresmugly. They said, “This goes toprove what the experience gained inour organization can do for a man.”But scholarly Richlin just smiledand said, “Put yourselves in my slip¬pers when I received this telegram onChristmas morning. ‘May we be thefirst to wish the author of the 1939Blackfriars show a Merry Christ¬mas.' ”Richlin has one problem left—hehas to think up a name for the show.Last year he submitted two booksto the judges, and had his familycome all the way from Omaha to seeone of the performances.The Friars show has been movedback into the last two weeks of Apriltc give hard-working officers of theorder a fighting chance to graduate.Three FraternitiesGive Miniature SingThe three leading fraternities inCap and Gown’s subscription contestwill present a miniature sing duringan intermission at the Reynolds ClubCouncil Basketball Dance on Jan¬uary 14, it was announced yesterday.In addition, the grand prize, ashiny new RCA Victor radio-phono¬graph combination will provide musicduring intermissions.The yearbook contest closes Janu¬ary 19. A second prize, an RCA Vic¬tor radio, will be awarded to the run¬ner-up. Last night the three leadingfraternities in the contest were PhiDelta Theta, Phi Kappa Psi, andDelta Upsilon, respectively.Students Strip, Clean ClosetsIn Settlement Drive for ClothesA deep suspicion that some stu¬dents had been liberal with their fra¬ternity brothers’ possessions wasvoiced as the Settlement Board sur¬veyed the loot collected in their pre-Christmas raid on the fraternities anddormitories. An unusually large num¬ber of freshly laundered shirts andseveral well conditioned suits madethe Board gasp at the effectivenessof their drive.Most of the fraternity houses werecaught at lunch time. With a littleurging virtually everyone noisilydashed up to their rooms and aftermuch running back and forth re¬turned with what clothing they couldspare for the Settlement.Contributions Usable, “Different from other years,” de¬clared Margaret Merrifield, presidentof the Settlement Board, “this year most everything contributed was us¬able.” Umbrellas, baseballs, gymshoes, and many unworn ties of vio¬lent description, were among thethings collected.Echoes of campus activities wei’efound in the large number of shoes,shirts, socks, and trousers caked withthe mud of the Botany Pond. Sixshoes appeared without mates, and aquantity of men’s socks turned upthat had apparently been worn fortheir intended life without seeing thewashtub.In spite of a deliberately noisy en¬trance, the girls ran into a number ofBurton Court residents w'hose attirewas designed for a purely masculinedormitory. Farther on, however, twoobliging students literally gave themthe shirts off their backs and onestripped off his sweater for the collec¬tion.Page Two THE DAILY MAROON, FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 1939^aroottFOUNDED IN 1»01MEMBER ASSOCIATED COLLEGIATEPRESSTb* Daily Maroon to tha offleial studantnawapai>ar of tha Untoaraity of Chicago,pahltoh^ mominga axeapt Saturday, Sun¬day and Monday during the Autumn,Winter and Spring quartara by Tha DailyMaroon Company, 68S1 Univeraity avenua.Talapbonaa: Hyde Park >221 and 9222.After < :S0 phone in atoriea to ourprintara, Iha Chief Printing Company,1920 Monterey avenue.

The division is stillbursting at the seams with thetrek which began with the open¬ing years of the depression andhas since continued unabated.There is a great deal to belearned, once the student issafely enrolled in the courses ofhis department. But first hemust hurdle the most thorough¬going waste of time which theUniversity has devised, the divi¬sional examination and the 201courses which attend it.The principle difficulty withthe 201 courses is that no onecan find any particular purposefor them. Ideally, they shouldprovide a background in thegeneral field of the socialsciences for the student who in¬tends to go on to specialize. Inpoint of fact, however, they onlysucceed in offering to the be¬wildered student five coursespresenting five totally differentconceptions of what an elemen¬tary course should try to do.The professors and the depart¬ments are not very well satis¬fied with the 201 courses whichthey give; the students aremerely bored.The conglomerate approach isapparent from any slight scru¬tiny of the course of study.History 201 couples thoroughinstruction in footnoting witha group of lectures and readingon historical methods that couldeasily be condensed into a thirdof the time taken. Sociology 201touches on sociological concepts,and gives a grounding in thelanguage of sociology that thegreat majority of the studentswould readily trade for a studyof community problems. Educa¬tion 201 liberally lards a presen¬tation of basic problems ofAmerican education with listsof dates and courses of study inthe school system of Australia.Anthropology 201 takes its bowas a slightly brushed up repeatperformance of the anthropol¬ogy materials cf the college sur¬vey courses. The others are asununderstandably varied in theirtreatment. No student on recordhas been able to derive fromthem the survey of the problemsof the social sciences they weredesigned to give.The reason is obvious. No at¬tempt has been made by the di¬vision to integrate the courses.They are not administered as aunit, and have no reason for be¬ing considered as a unit. Thedivisional examination is a repe¬tition of the quarterly quizzesall brought into one folder. Ifthe 201’s remain as they arethere is no reason for having acomprehensive.

Even ifthey were all presented with oneidea in mind, by a staff unifiedas are the staffs of the Collegesurveys, much of the materialthey offered would still be a re¬peat for those students who hadcome up through the College byway of the four general coursesand Social Sciences II. An inte¬grated course might easily be¬come a Social Sciences III, re¬hashing old material and sur¬veying too lightly the problemsbrought out by studies on thehigher level.By the time they reach theirjunior year, students need arest from surveys, and insteada detailed study of a few spe¬cific fields. They can learn moreabout the problems of the so¬cial sciences from such workthan they can from any moreelementary and vaguely generalintroductory courses.Even if the 201 courses in theSocial Sciences were not poorcourses totally lacking in inte¬gration and purpose, t h er ewould be adequate reason forthe substitution of a new sys¬tem.

Until last year DU was ratedas one of the strongest of the smallerhouses but having reaped a harvest of17 pledges in the 1938 winter crop, itnow stands among the top houses atthe University.No study rules are enforced but bya gentleman’s agreement there isquiet in the house after 7:30 in theevening. That this method works isproved by the fact that DU stands infourth place in the fraternity scholar¬ship ranking. Prouder of the fact thatthey are not muscle bound anywhere,the boys point to their third placestanding in intramurals last year totheir win in swimming this year, andto their anticipated sweep in tennis.The DU house is rented to the ac¬tive chapter by the alumni membersas is usual among campus fraterni¬ties. Last year the active memberswent through the house, redecoratingIt, refurnishing the upstairs rooms,and installing more showers. It isnow easily one of the best houses oncampus among those not specificallyconstructed as fraternity houses.Four radios, including one won in aPhillip Morris wrapper collecting contest, are owned by the house andfriction over choice of programs isavoided. Radio dances are also a fre¬quent part of the house’s social pro¬gram.Unique feature of the DU socialyear is their annual open party, theRose dance, held in the spring on thesecond night of Blackfriars. For theevent tons of roses are scatteredabout the house. A formal dance is anannual Winter quarter event, and willthis year be held in February.* * *There is no special social assessinent levied. Actives living in thehou.se pay $50 a month, which in¬cludes the social fee, room, board forfive days a week, and the chapterdues. Actives living at home pay $21a month for five meals a week, andchapter dues. Pledges pay $3 a month,plu.s charges for any meals they mayeat at the house. The initiation fee of$f>0 includes life membership in thenational organization, a life subscrip¬tion to the fraternity magazine, andthe DU pin.The fraternity reports that it has•‘il active members, 2 pledges, and 10graduates in school. Twelve men livein the hou.se. Surpassing all othercampus houses, the DU’s can call 26faculty members “brother.”* * *Of twelve sophomores in the house,six are numeral winners—in tennis,wrestling, gymnastics, fencing, andbasketball. All are out for their res¬pective teams. One is a member ofthe Chapel Union executive commit¬tee three are on Cap and Gown,three in Blackfriars, two in the Intra¬mural department.Pulse Board of Control has one DUjunior, another junior is AssociateHu.siness Manager on Cap and Gown,a third is on the student Social Com¬mittee,One of the twelve seniors is a let¬ter man in baseball, another is Hospi¬taller of Blackfriars. There is the sec¬retary of the IF committee, anotherf ap and Gown editor, the Big Tensaber champ and co-captain of ^ thefencing team, a University Marshal,the head of the Intramural depart¬ment.Delta Upsilon was organized in*8.14 at Williams College at Williams-town, Massachusetts. There are 61chapters of the national organization,and the local unit was formed in 1901.T here are now chapters in all of theUig Ten schools.ASU Elects BoardAt Next MeetingElection of officers and considera¬tion of some proposed revisions to theeft-revised constitution are the twomain events scheduled for a member¬ship meeting of the ASU Thursday,the Executive committee announcedyesterday.

Menke C♦Huffman G♦Andres G♦ LettermenCoach: Branch McCrackenMeets Chicago at Chicago, Febru¬ary 13.In equestrian circles there is avariety of animal known as the darkhorse. This sepia creature cantersaround considerably, at times wan¬dering from its paddock to otherfields, such as those of football, base¬ball, etc., and at the moment hasbedded dowm just southeast of herein Bloomington, Ind. His current silksare those of Indiana University andthe sport is basketball.An unknown quantity Indiana is,for the entries in its ’38-’39 ledgerhave all been made in the victory col¬umn. Yet Captain Ernie Andres,Marvin Huffman, and Bill Johnsonare the only performers of reliablecalibre who have faced varsity com¬petition before. The remainder, pos¬sessors of unusual potentialities, areall of sophomore classification. Thequality of past competition, which in¬cluded Michigan State, Western Re¬serve and Miami, tested to a certaindegree but not too thoroughly themettle of the Big Ten’s question markaggregation.Averaging over 50 points a game,their scoring ability indicates CoachBranch McCracken’s first year at theHoosier institution will be abovemediocrity. Andres, a 200 poundguard who last year scorched Illinois’meshes with his record setting 30points, is probably the finest individ¬ual performer in the conference withonly Pick Dehner of Illinois excepted.Andres’ senior running mate, Huff¬man, supplanted by stint of his cool,experienced performance HermanSchaefer, a sophomore McCrackenhad started in the first two games.These two provide as sturdy a de¬fense in the danger zone as will befound among the strongest teams ofthe circuit.Slender Bobby Dro, a soph, who, asthe cliche goes, is a promising pros¬pect, operating at the forward post hehas occupied since the season’s start.Johnson, at the opposite berth, oustedanother sophomore. Curly Armstrongto gain a hold on that spot for themoment at least.The center problem is no problem,being monopolized by. a brother act,Bill and Bob Menke, two second yearmen whose play to date has caused nocriticism. Like every other regular,both were all-state in prep school. Billopens the game, plays the feet frombeneath his opponent, and retires infavor of Brother Bob, who equals thestarter in ability. With sweating andbedraggled opponent, Robert per¬forms in the pivot and as feeder forthe sniping Andres. This plan wasused against Western Reserve, a min¬or but tough Ohio team that had runga string of twelve straight wins, thelast of which was over Dartmouth.Going into the second half the Hoos¬iers trailed by eight points and ap¬peared to stay behind, until the Boyswent into their stunt and shatteredthe Reserve defense.McCracken, up from Ball State col¬lege for his first crack at big timecoaching, is an old Indiana cage greatwho moved from amateur to pro balland battled the famed New York Cel¬tics of the now defunct AmericanBasketball League. Never an optimistcan be found among hardwoodcoaches, and McCracken is a pure con¬formist who feels his lads have donefairly well, but won’t continue in.their present vein when they frontV^quads like Minnesota and Purdue,^e thinks Ohio should be tabbedClosely, for the bucks are loaded withscoring punch and all-around tough-k ness.' Chicago, in summation, has a luke¬warm chance to win when the twomeet, if, and this if is more import¬ant to Massa Norgren than a ton ofDavey Banks, the home boys continueto acquire polish and court acumen atkthe rate they have since the Loyola Fencers FaceLean SeasonHold Practice Meet withNotre Dame on January28.As Maroon fencers prepare fortheir first practice meet with NotreDame at South Bend on January 28,the prospects for the season are theleanest in many years. Coach Her-manson’s squad, greatly weakened bylosses, has less veteran material thanany squad in the past three years.A nucleus of four veterans is supple¬mented by five candidates for teampositions.The basis of the team is formed bythe capable partnership of co-captainsCharley Corbett and Ed Gustafson.Gustafson, by far the most consistentperformer on the squad, is the de¬fending conference champion in sabre.He is one of the strongest fencersdeveloped by the University, since hereceived all of his training fromCoach Hermanson. Versatile CharlesCorbett, who fenced foil in his firstyear of competition, epee in his sec¬ond, may well round out his collegecareer in the third of the three weap¬ons. Whether he will fence epee orsabre is still undecided.The remaining members of lastyear’s team are Alex “Spike” Georgeand Loyal “Stringbean” Tingley.George, who fenced in third positionon the strong foil team last year, willmove up to the number one spot.Tingley, the only member of lastyear’s team who failed to gain thefinal round of the individual compe¬tition in the conference meet, andwho missed the final by a margin ofone point, is one of Hermanson’shopes in epee.The other contenders for team posi¬tions are drawn from “B” team andfreshman ranks. Two of the bestprospects are the freshmen who fin¬ished one-two in intramural competi¬tion last spring, Herbert Rubin andJames Corbett, left-handed brother ofthe co-captain. Rubin, an experiencedfencer from Lake View High School,will probably be second choice in foil.Jim Corbett, while inexperienced, isa dangerous contender in both epeeand sabre. Also in the running areStuart McClintock, foil, Paul Seiver,sabre, and an old-timer in foil, DickChapman. Chapman has been unableto compete in the past seasons be¬cause of a heavy program. He willbe a valuable addition to the squadand promises to be an all-seasonthreat.In addition to the meet at NotreDame, the team has four scheduledwith conference opponents. Theswordsmen travel to Urbana on Feb¬ruary 4 to meet Illinois. The follow¬ing week-end the Maroon team willplay host to a doubleheader, meetingPurdue on February 10 and OhioState on the following day. Their lastscheduled encounter before the con¬ference meet will be on February 25with the University of Wisconsin atMadison. The conference will be heldon March 11. In addition, as a resultof long time effort, there may be aNational Intercollegiate meet held onMarch 26 at Ohio State. The winnerof the conference titles will be eligibleto fence in this meet.Tennis TeamBegins PracticeGetting a good start on the springquarter season despite the absence oftheir first two men. Coach WallyHebert’s championship tennis teamhas begun practice on the Fieldhousecourts. Although Chester and Wil¬liam Murphy, ranked as class A play¬ers in singles and tenth nationallyin doubles are busy playing basket¬ball for Coach Norgren, the genialI-M “Czar” has plenty of work onhis hands in the remaining membersof the squad.Returning from last year’s grandslam team are Art Jorgenson, who isalso bolstering the cage squad withh i s presence, John Krietenstein,Charley Shostrom, brother of thepresent conference singles titleholder,and James Atkins, junior from Tulsawho filled in for John Shostrom lastyear while the latter was suffering ifrom a sprained ankle. ^ Free ThrowsOf all the University activities dur¬ing the holiday season, the one thatholds the most interest for localsport fans is the prep school basket¬ball tournament sponsored each yearby the Athletic Department. Thistournament, which was inauguratedas an interscholastic affair under A.A. Stagg’s Athletic directorship, isnow held for the high schools of Chi¬cago exclusively. Each year duringChristmas vacation thirty-two teamscompete.The meeting this year was won bythe Crane High School five, one ofthe steadiest aggregations that hasappeared in the tournament for quitesome time. Remarkably well-balanceoin scoring ability, the Crane quintetwas composed of a group which wasinvariably the underdog, and whichwas sadly lacking in height. Mar¬shall, the colored forward, was thebulwark of the team; his coolness un¬der fire and his remarkably able ball¬handling were big factors in histeam’s success. Paired with Marshallat forward was Goldberg, a tiny butaccurate forward. The remainder ofthe team was composed of Pill andAllison, centers, and Burroughs, LeBow and Maslanka at the guards.The other finalist in the tourneywas the Austin High team. A fast ca¬pable five, they were outsped in thelast ninety seconds of the final game.In a story book finish, with the scoretied at twenty-nine all, the Cranehoys made five baskets to Austin’scne in the last minute and a half ofthe game. The outstanding perform¬ers for Austin were Felt, the center,and Duckett, a forward, whose namew’as (correctly) misspelled Buckett inone of the local newspapers. Wrestlers PrepareFor Two MeetsIn Three DaysTeam Travels to Whea¬ton Tomorrow, DeKalbTeachers Monday.Other standout teams were Mar¬shall and Hyde Park fives, and thespeedy outfit from Wells. The indi¬vidual stars were led by Marshall ofCrane, who was high scorer. Otherleading lights were Kilian and Bog-danski, forward and center fromWells, Pratscher, forward from HydePark, and Lauchaskis, high scoringforward on the Marshall team.
