The Cliffers came back with a rush in second half and run the score to I0-9 in their favor in short order and at this point Hopper was put out on four personals. Stickle held a one-point lead with only four minutes to go and Newman sank a free throw and knotted the count. The rest of the game was played scoreless and an extra period was necessary and after about a minute of play Newman made his fourth foul and was taken from the game. This left the Leopards minus three regulars as Baxter was confined to his bed with high fever. The loggers caged two field baskets and two free throws in this period while the Leopards were held scoreless although they had several good shots. Capt. Smith of Stickle was put out for protesting a decision called by Referee Schultz. The game was by far the roughest game of the season. Oak Cliff Vs. Waco Oak Cliff ran rough shod over their old athletic rival, Waco High, de- feating them 30 to Io. Hopper and Sasse were the high score men, each scoring ten points. Waco was badly outclassed in all departments of the game. A new combination of players was used as Baxter was out of the game. Oak Cliff vs. Burleson Playing the closest game of the year Oak Cliff won from the fast Burleson five 25 to 23. The score was tied when the last whistle blew and an extra period was added. Sasse made the winning score for Oak Cliff. Hopper was out on account of an accident and Baxter and Carver were on the sick list. Oak Cliff vs. Bryan This was the most poorly played game in the series but it did not lack in interest. Hopper, Oak Cliff's leader and high score man of the series was out on account of an accident. Bryan held the lead of 6 to 5 at the half and the score was never tied though the battling Leopards threatened several times. The score-Bryan 18, oak cmr 14. Oak Cliff vs. Forest By defeating Forest I7 to Il Oak Cliff tied with them for second place in the city race and gave Bryan the City Championship. The close guarding of the Leopards did not allow Forest boys many shots at the basket and these Were poorly played. Oak Cliff played a very strong defensive game but was handicapped by the loss of Hopper. Page One Hundred Tw nty me

The Seaman Oak Cliff vs. North Dallas Fighting from behind a long lead that the Bulldogs had taken in the first half, Oak Cliff came back with a mighty rush in the last half and Won the game 20 to 16. The Leopards did not get started in the first half and the score stood I3 to 7 in their favor. Mr. Allen gave a little talk to the boys, however, and when the second half started Oak Cliff started and did not stop until they had won the game. I - Oak Cliff vs. Forest Once more Oak Cliff came back with a last minute rush and defeated Forest 22-7. At the end of the half the score stood 7 to 6 in favor of Forest, but in the second half they were not allowed a field goal. All of the Oak Cliff scores were made from the field while Forest could not hit the basket. Hopper took the lead in the scoring in the city series by a lead of five points. Oak Cliff vs. Bryan Although we lost this game it was Well played and a bit of hard luck that We lost. Hopper and John Gibbs played a good game for Oak Cliff, both played a defensive game. Both teams were Weak on hitting the basket and many personal fouls were called. The score-Bryan 16, Oak Cliff 13. Oak Cliff vs. North Dallas Playing the snappiest game of the series Oak Cliff Was defeated 29 to 26. The game was close all the Way through but the Bulldogs managed to retain the lead. Hopper and Sasse starred for the Leopards, both playing a fine game. The passing and ffoor work was really better than that of North Dallas but it Was the Bulldogs last chance to stay in the race and they managed to Win. Stickle Beats Leopards in Overtime Game ln the final game of the season the blue and white met the strong Stiekle Lumber Corporation quintet in the S1-a-point series and went down by the score of 23-17. However, the score was tied at I7 all at the end of the regulation game. The score at the half was 9-4 in favor of the Lumberjacks but the Leopards missed many easy shots and should have had the lead. Page One Hundred Twenty-eight

High School Title Finds Home Iii Lair of Leopard Quint After playing their fastest and best game of the season in chalking up a victory over the Grand Saline High school basketeers Saturday afternoon at the Bryan High gymnasium, the Oak Cliff Leopards pushed their basket ball skill and ability a notch closer to the old grindstone of eHorts Saturday night and won the Southern A. A. U. high school cage tourney from the Corsicana quintet, 42 to 16. The Leopards failed to win the city series, but they alone survived the Dallas teams in the mire of competition that waged encounters this year in the A. A. U. meet. In trimming the Corsicana dribblers, the Cliffers had their hands full of fight and five loopers of A-1 ranking. Corsicana proved a tough quintet to handle and only the superior basket ball work of the fast Clin? machine paved the way to victory. Corsicana staked a wonderful fight of the entire thing. Apparently tired due to their strenuous bout of the afternoon with Highland Park High School, they fought gamely and went down like a regular tribe of goal shooters should take the final count. This makes the first time in two years that a new champion holds the crown. Forest High school of Dallas won the title in 1923 and IQZ4. The entire Oak Cliff club played excellent basket ball to Win the final clash for cham- pionship honors. Ira Hopper, Newman, Box Baxter and others certainly played their positions well. Horn was the individual star for the Corsicana aggregation. Hopper was the high scorer of the game with twenty-one points to his credit. In the afternoon game Ira failed to score a single Held goal-but he sure made up for lost time in the final bout. Newman scored eleven points and played a fine floor game. For Corsicana the goal shooting of H. Green featured. He whipped the net for a total of ive points out of the combined sixteen made by his club. The Corsicana scoring power was not impressive but their passing was good, and throughout the entire melee the white clad youngsters were a constant threat. Bryan High school won the consolation meet by defeating Colfax, 18 to li. Highland Park Won third place in the tourney on Il forfeit from Grand Saline. Oak Cliff- Fg Pts.

Oak Cliff 32, Grand Saline 29. Oak Cliff hit its best stride of the year to defeat Grand Saline in the second semi-final at Bryan High, 32-29, in a game played at fever heat to the last whistle. The Leopards led at the half, and when Grand Saline tied the score early in the third period, forced ahead again by a well directed basket ball attack, a neat passing game that fed a forward under the basket that Grand Saline failed to guard. Newman was the bright star of the game, not only caging six baskets, but playing a dazzling floor game, while a remarkable feature Was that the usually dependable Ira Hopper failed to score a field goal. Grand Saline, already handicapped by the ineligibility of two players, lost McKenzie on personal fouls in the second half. Oak Cliff- G. Fg. P. Pts.
