satile guard really proved his worth in the state tournament when he replaced the tired Abbott in the last game and came through with five needed points. Some of the highlights of the best basketball season Lebanon has ever enioyed were: Lebanon's first home win of the season 34 to 22 over the touring Ashland Griz- zlies-the 41 to 36 Warrior victory over the state champion Eguene Axemen in which Cox went score crazy to make 24 points-the winning of the first league game against Sweet Home 43 to 38-the thrilling overtime victory over Corvallis 53 to 49 and Alley making the free throw that sent the game into the overtime-a 46 to 31 Win lover Albany when Hamilton and Cox scored 22 and 15 points respectively torun wild over the Bull- dogs-the O.

Frosh their first defeat by a high school team 43 to 39-the 37 to 25 win over Sweet Home that put Lebanon in the state tournament- Lebanon downing the Astoria Fishermen 33 to 29 in the first game of the state tournament with Cox scoring 16 points-the close 36 to 34 loss to Washington in the second game of the tourney, but Hamilton starred with 19 points-Lebanon out-galloping the sup- posedly race horse Baker Bulldogs 52 to 42-the 35 to 31 victory over Rainier which gave Lebanon 4th place in the state casaba classic.

students in good old L. H. S. The many town fans who had so devotedly followed the squad all season and who had helped to fill the Lebanon gym to overflowing at each home game were both pleased and proud to follow the Warriors to the Salem playoffs. The Warriors were led this year by big, good natured Lynn Hamilton, captain and high scorer on the team. Lynn scored the staggering total of 460 points in 30 games for better than o I5 point per game average, and brought further honor to Lebanon by being selected unanimously on the all-state team at Salem besides scoring 64 points in the tourney to lead the field in this department. Lynn is one of the best hoop artists ever to graduate from Lebanon High and this 4-year Ietterman will be sorely missed next year but we are all hoping to hear more from him in college basketball circles. Another boy who turned in a remarkable bit of basketball this year was Ron Cox, center and second high scorer on the team with 338 points. This southpaw artist was unanimously selected on the District 7 all-star team as was Hamilton, and Ron iust missed placing an the all-state squad by a few votes. Besides being a high point getter, Ron was one of the best backboard men on the squad and his defensive play was always tops. Standing only 5' ll", Ron often had to play against opponents towering inches above him, but he very capably showed them that he could handle even the tallest of them. Orbra Abbott, letterman transfer from Sweet Home, turned out to be one of the smoothest ball handlers and passers seen on this floor in a long time. "Mole" always came through with his share of points but his deceptive passing and setting up of bas- kets for others led the way to many Warrior victories. He fitted into the Lebanon team like he had been playing here for years and this likable athlete certainly proved a gain to Lebanon and a loss to the Huskies when he showed up in the halls of Lebanon High. Gay Baldwin started out slowly at the beginning of the season, but at mid-season he broke into the starting lineup and this hard driving backboard man proved beyond a doubt that he was of first string caliber. When it came to taking rebounds off the backboard he was without an equal and on defense he covered his man like a blanket. "Baldy" really came through with the goods this year and too much credit cannot be given this husky Warrior guard. Paul Alley, the fifth member of the starting lineup, was the only junior in this group but after a few early season games, he began playing like a veteran and proved to be a valuable asset to the team. Not a high scorer, Paul set up plays for the other boys as well as keeping opponents from scoring on fast breaks. This dependable forward could always be counted on to play his heart out in every game, and as captain-elect for next year we are expecting great things from him. The reserves, who deserve iust as much credit as the regulars, came in for their their share of action and their ability to come through when needed, gave Lebanon that extra strength so needed to .win some clase games. Kenny Houghton and Dick Hewett, reserve forwards, performed in great style. Houghton alternated at forward for Alley and during the early part of the season he played regular when Alley was on the sick list. At center, Bob Ackeret was a very capable reserve because of his height and aggressive backboard work. Bob could really make the baskets when having a hot night and his presence in the lineup did not weaken the team strength at all. Elmer Fields played as much as any reserve, and this small, but rubber-legged guard was in- valuable to the team. He played regular as much as Baldwin and proved to be a clutch player of some outstanding ability. Jerry Toole, who joined the squad late in the season gave the group some much needed reserve strength and the small but ver- 62

-. ...gv ,, 534446466 Although the I946 baseball team dpes not have the out- standing record of the district champions of last year,,this year's team has made a creditable showing in games played so far this season and at the time of this writing have broken even in games won and lost, having won 4 and lost 4. The squadwas hard hit by graduation last year and a number of new and inexperienced faces appear in the lineup this spring. ln spite of this inexperience, the squad is improving in every game and from here on out they should add to the winning side of the ledger. A thumbnail sketch of the squad shows Joe Elkins, captain and 2-year letterman, as the only experienced pitcher on the roster. Joe is heralded by many as one of the best twirlers in the Willam- ette Valley and his heavy hitting labels him as an invaluable ball player. Lynn Hamil- ton, letterman first baseman, has been playing good ball all season and his good work with the bat has been especially noticeable. Dick Hewett, a reserve letterman infielder from last year, has been holding down second base this year and doing a good iob. Although he is small in stature, he wields a strong bat and often hits for extra bases. Willis Moody, letterman third baseman, has been playing a bang-up game at the hot corner and his strong throwing arm has robbed many an opponent of a base hit. "Mole" Abbott, letterman transfer from Sweet Home, has been playing shortstop and this tall, angular lad can cover a lot of ground JOE ELKINS Captain 64
