Inspired by the taste of victory in

back the soph quintet 19-18 in a fast

the sophs evened the court at the half
and managed to gain a one-point lead
at the close of the third quarter; the
score being 16-15. In the fourth period bo!h teams tightened up and
little shooting was done. The sophs
forged ahead when Matthews scored a
long shot and appeared to have the
game in the bag, but the slimes opened
up a passing attack that tied the
score 18-18 as the final whistle blew.
Brahnan and Matthews took it onto
themselves to give the upperclassmen
victory and hit the basket repeatedly
but could not score. While the frosh
battling with a do or die determination got the break that netted the
winning free throw.

"We hope the students will use and
enjoy the library much more than
heretofore, and will not hesitate to
call upon us to assist them in locating
material for which they are searching."
Thus Mrs. H. H. Shearer extends to the
students her invitation to use the

received in the Junior college libraryj
now total 450. They have all been
classified and are on the shelf ready
for students' use. The books deal with
a variety of subjects, but there are
especially good biographies and dramatic criticisms. There is also an interesting collection of novels.
Although the college has accession
to the high school library, there will
be little need of using their books,
as the college library is well supplied
with interesting books dealing with
practically every subject.

With the 1931-32 basketball season
getting started and the sophomore-
freshman basketball games over,
Coach French has turned his attention to the varsity basketball team.
Besides a number of high school lettermen, French has three veterans to
mold his first string team around.
Harry Matthews, Bob Brahnan, and
Bill Jeter make up this trio.
The freshman quintet copped two
out of three games with the highly
touted sophs and brought out a n
ber of star performers to grab
spotlight along with the regular from
last season. The initial game of thi
season saw the frosh grab a 23-20
victory in a heated overtime tilt. In
the second game the going was not so
smooth and the slimes managed to get
the breaks and turn back the upperclassmen 19-18. In the final game the
sophomores hit their stride and checked the onslaught of the freshmen by
winning 17-14. In Kellogg, speedy
running center, and Parks a classy
forward, the frosh boast a pair of
stars, while the sophs have a smooth

Courageous Defense Keeps *
Victors Score Down
To 17 Points
A fast passing attacked, formed
around Brahnan, Jeter, and Matthew*,
proved, too much for the freshman
quintet in the final game of the soph-
frosh series and gave the sophomores
a 17-14 win over the slimes.
The sophs literally passed the froih -
dizzy and took the lead in the early
part of the first period, never letting
up once they got the jump on the
slimes. As the soph quintet kept up *
j their fast offensive- the slimes fell
back into a desperate defensive and
only in this way succeeded in stopping the upperclassmen. In the third
quarter the slimes evened the count
j but failed to hold it and the sophi
pulled away to a three-point lead and
I managed to hold it to the end.
| Both teams showed an improvement
over the last encounter, which speeded
up the game considerably. The sophomores used only seven men throughout the entire game while the frosh
sent in substitutions repeatedly in
order to stop the onslaught.
souri Pacific team this summer. Brahnan boasts the high score of 591 for a
three games set, making an average of
197 points a game.
There should be no doubt that the
basketball battles staged by the soph-
fresh girls brought out the masculine
part of the school. Besides getting a
great kick out of the antics of the
players, the boys picked up a few
points on fighting spirit. These basketball games have been bitterly contested till the final whistle.
As long as the girl sophomore five
has Louise Morgan they need not
worry about where their goals are
coming from. Morgan has a dead eye
for the basket and sinks a long shot
as easy as a crip. In the first game
Morgan made 14 out of the total 17
points scored by the sophomores. Six
of these were scored in the first half
and eight in the last half.
Several parties in school have
boasted of getting the limit in ducks
this season. We know for a fact that
George Gayle and friend have been
making weekly trips up near Edna
and returning with plenty of ducks
and squirrels. Fred Aebi and his *
hunting party have journeyed to an
"exclusive place" and brought back
something besides wet feet. .-,

teams played last year were Hughes
