ddr-u-qdr Basketball 1~HE BASKETBALL TEAM was unusual for one reason, it didn ' t win a championsiiip. It had everything: five men on the team, a regulation basketball, a regulation coach, and even a regulation court to play on. But the boys on the team were so tender-hearted that they couldn ' t even shoot baskets. Nor fowls. It is rumored that Coach N4ickey lost his book on " How to Play Basketball " and used his Hygiene text instead. He is reported to have applied his famous " Rules of the Game " and told his players to get plenty of sleep. They followed his instructions and got plenty of sleep on the basketball court. Coach Mickey stated that he thought the trouble with his team was that they couldn ' t sink baskets. Clever man. One thing that can be said, however, is that the boys were in th.-re trying all the time. But what they were trying, nobody knows. You guess. Their motto seemed to be " Thou shalt not pass " . If one of em was fortunate enough to get the ball, he holds on to it so long, that even if he wants to get rid of it. he can ' t, because it adheres to his hands. I must say that these boys have got Stick-ToTtiveness. The boys can ' t wait until they get their hands on the ball, and when they do, they ' re so happy over the fact that they have got it, that they hate to give it up. Parcheesi pARCHEESI is rapidly overtaking Backgammon as a national sport. The word Parcheesi is derived 1 from two sources: par being taken from golf (African) and cheese from the grocery store. Jordan high school won the national championship last year but most of their players had been four- star lettermen in grammar school. The game is principally one of numbers, seven a nd eleven. Compton jaysee entered the junior high school league and defeated every school but Enterprise. But then Roth and Rosenblum wrote a musical comedy. " School Daze " and Enterprise was beaten on the stage. Lorraine Turner starred for the locals and dev^Joped a technique in rolling the dice known as the " Turner Twist " . She was mentioned as a probable candidate for the All- American team. However, she was restricted from this All- American honor because she was a foreigner by birth, having been born in Compton. Loaded dice were given to Coach Art Honig ii appreciation of his services as coach of the parcheesi players. He modestly blinked and stated that it wa > no work at all. " Aw, it just comes natural. I guess, " le blurtingly said. Two little dimples smiling peeked out of the corner of his chin. Tiddlywinks TIDDLE ' WINKS had its greatest year in Compton ' s history this year. Fullerton and Pasadena were so incensed over the beatings w gave them that they protested to the conference officials that we were subsidizing athletes. Howard Clark was the star of the team, having scored six chuckers and a field goal in six games. The night before the L. A. struggle, he was duped away from the campus and not allowed to return for the game. Only inexperienced " Winko " Carpenter was available for the game. Wes Godfrey opened the game with a beautiful wink at Lucille, but the um- pire ruled Compton offside. However, with cheer leader Darwin Dixon leading a frenzied Tartar rooting section and Aileen Oliver protecting the cup as if it were a nickel, Compton ' s goal was never in danger. Brownie Chambers made Compton ' s first touchdown, catching a pass from Glade the Grade and pushing it in with his nose. Birdie Hall thought it was a game of " Spin the Bottle " and ilso made a hit by turning out the lights. A large crowd witnessed the cham- pionship meet. Two Hinidred Fifteen
