In spite of the fact that only a handful of men were left on the campus, Miss Hall could count on both " Bob " Miller, who was on the ' 42- ' 43 varsity, and " Herky " Latimer, who played with Bethesda-Chevy Chase last year, to build a team. With Bob Miller as cap- tain, Herky Latimer, Ralph Yow, Bruce Drake, Glenn Riddell, LeRoy Smith, Albert Botkin, Jim Chin, and George Latham appeared for practice in October. Coach Clarence Sheffer was our first instructor; however, he had to go to California, and Artie Boyd took over during the second semester and we really got a good team to- gether. During the first semester we had to rely on the Bomb Disposal School for some experienced men, but due to the fact that we had a hard time getting together for prac- tice, our play was rather ragged at times. Our first game, with the Ox Fiber Brush Company ended 24-21 and helped greatly, because it showed our faults. Immediately Coach Sheffer had the boys work on the fast break which stood us in good stead the rest of the season. In league competition this year we ended with three victories and five defeats, but that does not tell the whole story. We were beaten by two- and three-point margins in several of the games. The climax of the season was the Catholic University game. Although the under dogs, we tied the score eleven times before we lost 59-52. We got to the semi- finals in the playoffs, in the first game we played Gallaudet 31-36, in a hard-fought con- test. The following evening we met Mount Saint Mary ' s whom we had played in league competition during the year. We lost 39-27 but there were only five men on the squad who played the whole game. Mount Saint Mary ' s won the final playoffs the following night. In the second semester we were helped by some new men. They were Merrill Heddings, John Poston, Richard Poston and Bunny Cittrebaum. Thus ended the 1943-1944 basket- ball season. 151| GIRLS ' SPORTS " A " CLUB BECKY BURNS President IRENE JAWOROWSKI . . . .

Uite will have a skeleton in his closet for such is the 1944 " Aucola. " It comes to you after having survived many a crisis. Because of the war and limited funds its very existence was at first questioned. Once the dummy was cut down to a mere skeleton, the 1944 " Aucola " became a possibility and we were off to a late start. As a result of the conservation policy last year ' s class photographs were used to save copper plate and photographic material. Photographs were made out- side to save precious flash bulbs. To top the late start, limited funds and the conservation program, the editor decided to get married. It is only due to the able efforts of the co-editors, Ruth Capello and Marcia Crouter, and a wonderful staff that the " Aucola " survived and was sent to press. — Noelle Atwood Ludlum.
