Basketball Team. Captain Taylor.-"Nuts" had entire charge of the 1912 Basketball team. He coached it and managed it on the field. He devised the plays and put them into execution and he scored more points than any other man on the team. "Nuts" is most undoubtedly the greatest leader that ever captained a basketball team for Ruby Red and Silver Gray. Manager Wood.-"Shorty" Wood is truly a marvel. Guarding men who outweighed him 40 pounds, playing the floor with lightning speed, dashing up from guard and winning games by his spectacular field goals, Wood was the sensation of every game in which he played. Hoppe.-"Hop" played the basket and he played it sure. When Busse or Wood shot the ball up the field, Hoppe was always under the basket to drop it in. A sure shot and heady, Hoppe won many a game for A. H. S. Harford. -Lyle didn't come out until the day before the team was to leave for Centralia, and it had been found necessary to get a new center. Big and fast, Harford played a great defensive and offensive game. Few men could get the jumps on Lyle, and although he had no previous practice, he played a wonderful game at Centralia. Busse.-"Splish," the biggest man on the team, was the fellow that Taylor placed to guard the best opposing forward and never once was he shown up. No matter how the game was going Busse was guarding the basket and while Wood was playing running guard, Busse could guard his own man and another too. ' Cresswell, Captain elect-Although "Bob," because of his inex- perience, got to take part in but 12 games, he never missed practice, always travelled with the team and was always ready when needed. That he demonstrated his worth is shown by the fact that the team unanimously chose him Captain for 1913. "I have a very unhappy brain for thinking."-PHYLLIS Gksxms. 104

Pf J, X H A J The baseball season of 1912 was not as successful as the football and basket- ball seasons had been, but undoubtedly would have been far more successful than it was if any support whatever had been given to the team, which worked just as hard and deserved support just as much as the other teams. The material was above the average. Captain Wood alone assured a fighting and a well managed team. Wight- man is undoubtedly a clever receiver, while Howard is the best slab artist seen around here for several seasons. Walker and Degenhardt also showed that they possessed the stuff, although they lacked Howard's control. Shine, Hoefert, Hoppe and Taylor played a good fielding game. Captain Wood's work requires no com- ment, except that he is unsurpassed at short. Henry Beiser and Poole played well in the outfield. The hitting strength of the team was centered in Hoefert, Wood and Henry, whose stick work helped greatly. The first game at Belleville, April 6, was won by the score of 14 to 10 and seemed to promise a very successful season. But it was impossible for Manager Hyatt to get the team games away from here, without promising a return game. This was proven impossible by the Belleville game at Alton, May 4th, as the sup- port was absolutely "nil". Therefore the score of 17 to 12 against Alton was not entirely the fault of the team, which was undoubtedly off its usual form, but was chiefly the fault of the support. It was thought best by the management not to attempt any more games, so the team, which contained the material for a great baseball team, was disbanded with the record of one game won and one game lost.
