After knocking off a not-too-strong Chicago Tuley team 74 to 37, our
Tigers ran up against their rival from Kalamazoo, the Maroon Giants, and
were beaten 65 to 44 as a full court press took us apart at the seams.
Holland then tried to make it two in a row, but failed as Chet Walker led the
way .to an 83 to 57 exhibition in which he scored 40 points setting a new
school record for individual points. Continuing on their winning ways, the
Tigers trounced over the Big Reds from Muskegon 83 to 47 with individual
honors, this time going to Sam Watson whose 27 points proved to be the
highest total in his career.
Smarting from their first loss, Grand Haven came back for revenge and
almost got it as Chet Walker came down with the mumps and was unable to
play. Nevertheless, the score ended up in our favor, 60 to 58, as Don Marler,
with only two seconds left to play, sank a long one to put us ahead. ,lim
Culverhouse did a good job of substituting for Walker and started in the
next two games in his absence. Losing to South Bend Washington in a thrilling
overtime 69 to 67 and heating Niles 58 to 42 brought us up against our
toughest opposition of the season with Burton, McCarty, and company from
Muskegon Heights scoring 67 to 44.

t Q hicago.
With the return of seven lettermen and the addition of six newcomers to
varsity rating, Coach Farnum and our Tigers came up with another successful
year by winning twelve of their sixteen games. Nine of these were played
in the new, spacious, and "splinte1'less" Colfax Coliseum, as the last game of
the season with Muskegeon Heights, brought a capacity crowd and an all-
time attend-ance record of 3,200.
With J. Barchett, J. Culverhouse, D. Dunbar, D. Marler, C. Peapples, C.
Walker, and S. Watson being the seven returning lettermen and A. Belski,
1. Biggert, R. Lange, B. Rodgers, B. Whitman, and M. Yarborough, as the
"rookies," our Tigers made their debut by defeating the Morton Governors
by a score of 70 to 58 with 6 ft. 5 in. Chet Walker taking scoring honors with
28 points, and Sam Watsoncoming up second with 21 points.
The second game proved easier as Benton Harbor "wrote the record book"
by slaughtering Grand Haven by a score of 78 to 37--both totals being the
respective high and low for the season.

After downing Holland 61 to 33 our Tigers found themselves in "Kazoo-
Townf' and under the brilliant floor-leadership of George Peapples broke
the '4Ciant Pressn and went on to win 57 to 48 as individual scores were low
and a well-rounded team effort made up the difference.
Beating Muskegon 66 to 45, South Bend St. Joseph fa highly regarded
Indiana teamj 70 to 55, and Niles 74 to 43, we again found ourselves face
to face with the 'gterrors of the north,,' Muskegon Heights. Unfortunately,
history repeated itself and Benton Harbor found itself 011 the short end of a
63 to 49 score after leading at half-time by one point.
As no news of the tournaments could be received before the Creybric went
to press, the biggest news this year seemed to be Chet Walker who broke the
individual record with 40 points, broke the average points per game record
with a 22.2 average, and unofficially set the accuracy record of about .473-
47.3 fk of shots taken were made.
Graduating seniors are J. Barchett, J. Culverhouse, D. lVIarler, B. Rodgers,
and S. Watson.
