W. P. DURRETT '
Coaching with the Worldly experience of a
seasoned Veteran, Coach Durrett developed the
material in hand into a fighting, hard-playing
machine to be reckoned with by the best. Coach
Durrett's squad had some hard breaks but did
well in spite of them.
Coach Durrett has done a great deal to put
basketball on a par with the other school
sports, and his enthusiasm is enlisting many fans.
For the Hrst time the basketball boys this year
had a banquet, and the entire Working squad

CHARLES SPRAGUE, Capiuiu
Charles, the last of the Spragues, played only
the first half with the Leopards, His fine de-
fensive work was missed keenly at graduation,
for the big captain's presence had lifted the
Leopards out of many gloomy atmospheres. His
work at center position was excellent.
HERBERT BARR12'I'T, Forward
A fast, shifty forward, lierbcrt played with
the same precision as the other members of the
team. His ability at hitting the basket was
closely watched by the opposing teams. Letter-
ing one year, he graduates in June, and his loss
will be felt, along with the others, keenly.
Li3oN Pkltiz, Guard
Playing only one year with the Leopards, Leon
proved his fine defensive ability in all games. His
offensive work helped the Leopards greatly by
his ability to hit the basket from mid-court.
An excellent guard, Price's presence will be
missed by the Leopards next year.
Jack WiLt.is, Guard
Lacking in height, Jack made an excellent
showing at guard position. Height proved no
handicap when it came to guarding his opponents.
His speed and stamina will aid the Leopards
greatly next year.
FERMAN FOWLER, Forward
Shooting with deadly accuracy, Forman was a
forward that kept all guards in the city on
their toes. His oHensive work, while not bril-
liant, was steady, and he piled up a great many
points. Ferman has another year, and with a
little work, could be all-city material for Coach
CLIFFORIJ LIARTFR, Forufiml
Clifford was the shortest of the members of
the basketball squad. His fast, shifty movements
kept opponents worried, and his work .it forward
helped the Leopards considerably. Cllillord will
develop into a better forward by next year-then
COLYAR Pim,l.iPs, Guam!
Playing both forward and guard positions,
Colyar proved to be an excellent player for his
amount of experience. He scored with almost
perfect accuracy against all opponents and his
presence next year will enlarge the Leopards'
vision for a championship,
DELBERT WI1.l.lS, Crufrr
After playing a guard position, Delbert was
shifted to center to 611 Sprague's shoes at mid-
term. His height was least of any center in the
city, but he out-jumped many of them to forge
ahead with the Leopards' score. Lettering two
years, Delbert has done his bit for the Blue and
