KEEN KEENER 1938 BASEBALL In the " round robin ” played last fall the baseball team came out at the bottom of the list, with one win against five losses. Losing only one, Myers, by grad nation , prospects look a great deal brighter than last fall. Terborg pitched some mighty fine balls, and, if he returns to school, watch out, because Bahler ' at short, Evans at second, C. Moolenaar at first, Huhn at catch, and the other Moolenaars, Peterson, and Boezeman sprinkled around the outfield ivill cause plenty of trouble for the opposition. BASKETBALL 1937-1938 Suffering one of the greatest losses by graduation that DeMotte has ex- perienced in recent years, basketball was on the losing end when, from the teams of ’ 36 -’ 37 , nine boys of the first eleven received their diplomas. Every- thing looked dark when Coach Jarre ft issued the first call for the hardwood recruits. Nowhere was to be found a group of such small boys, and nowhere a more inexperienced group; nevertheless a team had to be molded from such raw products. Facing a difficult schedule against teams which had for the main part kept their first squads intact from the previous year, DeMotte set out upon her 1937-’3 8 basketball trip as a decided underdog. Everybody was going to beat DeMotte. Well, just about everybody did beat DeMotte. However, we did have a few high spots. To start everything off, Wheat field knocked all the starch out of the midgets from DeMotte in the first game of the season — they lost track of the Page twenty-one

KEEN KEENER i 1938 BASKETBALL (Continued) final score. It was just two weeks later that the Indians found themselves for a while, long enough to defeat Fair Oaks in as thrilling a ball game as one would want to see. Things turned just the reverse following that sweet victory. Sickness, plus several cases of the mumps entered in and took their toll. De- Motte was down for a long while; the only bright spot came just before Christ- mas when an inspired victory was earned over Tefft. By the way we wont even mention the Kankakee Valley tournament . The Indians continued to get scalped until one glorious week-end in Jan- uary, the fourteenth and fifteenth, the birthday of Coach farrett. The boys didn’t know it until after the games, but they had given the coach as fine a birthday present as he could wish for with two well-earned victories over hail Oaks and Kouts. Even the second team contributed its part with a hair-split- ting win over the Kouts’ seconds. Victory didn’t knock again until San Pierre was trimmed on the home floor the last week of the season; however, all the joy of that was snuffed out when, as a grand climax, Medaryville and Hebron " tromped ” the Indians on successive nights. Yes, DcMotte was the underdog in ’37-’3 8, but what will next year bring ? Three fine ball players will be lost by graduation when Myers, S huey, and Bel- stra receive their sheepskins. Tribute must be paid to these boys who stuck it out from start to finish with a group of inexperienced boys as teammates. Next year’s team will no doubt be built around Bahler, the Moolenaar boys, Struble, Tcrpstra, Suffcrn, Boezeman, Huhn, Evans, Z eck, and yes, several other good and experienced ball players. We’re warning everybody right now — Watch out for those Indians next year!!!
