OF INTEREST TO BASKETBALL
At a recent convention, in Chicago,
of the National Association of Basket-
ball coaches, the center jump was
voted for retention after a two hour
debate on the subject.
Some of you will remember that the
center jump was omitted excepting
at the start of the game, the second
half and the start of overtime periods
in the Southern Division of the West
Coast conference games this past season.
All other important rules were

On April 5 the Houston ballhawks
took the field against the Louisville
nine, and for seven innings it looked
like the Houston team of old out there
on the field with the score standing
8- all in the seventh, but the lack of
moundsmen again told.
O'Brien took the mound at the outset,
only to be chased in the third
when his deliveries took to the wide
open spaces. Johnson then went in,
going good for three inning when the
Louisville stickers began to work out
on his tricky delivery, Tiny Rimmer
then took the mound to finish the
game but he had trouble finding the
plate with his fast one, and in easing
up, hoping to do better, the Louisville
had things their own way. .
The boys played a good brand of
ball in the field but with the deluge
of hits it was impossible for them
to pull the game out of the fire, although
they did hit well.

DIVISION ISSUE. Ens. Williams is

from the FIGHTING FIRST.
Last Saturday eve'n, in an exciting
match with the Premier Ladies team,
the Houston bowlers were the hapless
victims of convincing proof that the
weaker sex are rapidly gaining their
share of prominence in the world of
sport. When the s m 0 k e had
cleared away it was found that the
Houston had lost by 220 pins, the
total team scores being 2492 to 2272.
Gillian and Kirkpatrick had their
speed ball in action but had trouble
finding the strike pocket while DeBri
and Shaw, after a slow start, got going
in the last two games. Nelson was
badly off form, due partly to a prolonged
absence from the alleys, but
he was also handicapped by a bulge
on his left hip, so after the first string
Johnson relieved him, but had the
same trouble as Gil and Kirk. The
sudden slump of the entire team may
be attributed to the feminine opposition.
was over, but fate plus some bad playing
streaks decided otherwise, and so
the Pensacola is' now able to boast of
at least one win this season. The
game was well played ' till the eighth
when our boys suddenly began to
boot ' em around, thereby losing their
last chance to do something. The Pensacola
pitcher, Cohn, used a slow ball
to great advantage, holding the Houston
down to 5 hits and three of them
were scratch hits. ' oJohnson started
for us but after the first inning the

tossed them, so after a bad 2nd and
