And since iT's To be The lasT one, We wanT iT To be Tine. We seniors have The hardesT Times OT anyone in school. We work and slave And Try To behave: Our Time we musT noT Tool. ln agriculTure The boys learn how To reap and sow The seed. They musT waTch The crop, So iT won'T be a "flop," And hoe ouT every weed. And when iT comes To Civics Class WiTh all Those horrid TesTs, We heave a sigh And say, "Oh my, These Teachers are such pesTsl" And SaTeTy Class is noT so safe As iT's "cracked up" To be: We all musT beware For erasers in air Make a "Shiner" noT lovely To see. BuT Public Speaking Class, you see, Makes up Tor all These woes: lT's The liveliesT class, YeT The hardesT To pass, For we musT always be up on our Toes. When we come ouT wiTh The band To sTruT, Across The baskeTball Tloor, All eyes are Turned, WiTh envy They're burned, And we hear whispered commenTs galore! The Library is supposed To be The quieTesT place in school, YeT a mouse one day To The desk did sTray, Making Walker TorgeT ThaT rule. IT The Senior boys are looking Tor wives, To Home Ec. class They go: The girls are good cooks And noT bad Tor looks, BuT They're always aTTer The "dough." Well, This concludes The broadcasT, Once more iT comes To an end. We all haTe To leave, BUT iT's no use To grieve For we have made many a Triend. -J EANE WEARLY Miss Anderson lln sevenlh grade arll: "Today we shall draw a lree." lAller much ellorl Jack Smilh heaved a big sigh and wenl lo show his piclure.l Jack: "Miss Anderson, l guess lhal poel was righl when lhe said, 'Only God can make a lree'." :ze PF PF Two girls were discussing a cerlain high school Romeo, name-Russel Pugh.

SCORE WAS 32 TO 31 Double Foul Shooting in Closing Seconds Put Pacers in The Lead. Montpelier's tall, veteran Pacers eked out a hardfought 32-31 victory over Coach Joly Barr's up and coming Aire- dale outfit in a thrill packed opening game before a packed house in the new gym here Tuesday evening. Hitting consistently from all angles of the court, the Pacers had complete command of the situation up until the closing minutes when the fighting Aire- dales made a gallant rally to overcome what was once a ten-point lead and send a crowd of some 2,000 into a frenzy. Well earned as the Montpelier victory was, the Hartford City fans were sent away with no regrets for they saw the smaller Black and Gold forces go down fighting to the last ditch. Trailing once by a 27-17 count, in the last quarter the Airedales made a great rally to go to the front with a 31-30 lead with a minute and a half left to play only to see it wiped out in the closing seconds by a bit of steel nerved foul pitching by Evers, blond headed Montpelier forward. With the crowd howling to the high heavens at his back, the Montpelier veteran toed the foul line with victory or defeat in his hands and nonchalantly swished both tosses through the net to give his team the final 32-31 margin. So great was the frenzy in those closing minutes that the ofiicials had to call a halt to the game at one time be- cause their whistles could not be heard above the tumult. Pacers Suffer First Defeat At Albany Sat. Night A capacity crowd of 320 people Wit- nessed the first defeat of the year for the Pacers Saturday night by the Al- bany team on their fioor. The Pacers were handicapped to a certain extent, as they were playing for the first time this year on a small floor like Albany's. Montpelier Pacers were unusually un- lucky on their basket hitting and lacked the drive to penetrate the defense of the Albany team. Red Rollers Easy Victims Of Pacers Sat. MONTPELIER WON EASY OPENER AT BIG FOUR TOURNEY BY THE SCORE OF 33 TO 25 Montpelier was most fortunate in drawing the Roll Red Rollers for the opening tilt of the tourney held Satur- day afternoon. Although many of the fans felt that the opening game was somewhat one sided as Roll had failed to win any victories during the entire season while Montpelier had only suf- fered one defeat, that by Albany on November 19. Montpelier played to the largest crowd ever to witness the afternoon session of the Big Four Tourney in this city Saturday afternoon. The game started very slow but became more in- teresting as it progressed. Montpelier was the first to score when Markley hit a tip-in shot to put the Pacers in the lead. Roll then hit to tie the score and went into the lead on a shot by H. Johnson. Yates increased the lead for Roll when he hit one from the side of the Hoor followed rapidly by H. Johnson. Speece connected for Montpelier and Pugh hit a charity toss to bring the Pacers within one point of Roll. Pierce then hit a basket at the free throw line to give Roll a three point lead, but Markley hit two charity tosses to end the scoring for the quarter. Roll 8, Montpelier 7. Dunkirk Bows To Pacers In Defeat Friday MONTPELIER TEAM VICTORIOUS OVER DUNKIRK FOR FIRST TIME IN 13 GAMES The Montpelier Pacers defeated the Dunkirk Speedcats in the most thrilling game of the season Frdiay night at the local gym when they stood off a last quarter drive led by Hatch, speedy for- ward of Dunkirk. Montpelier opened the scoring when Roger Speece counted the first basket of the game. Hare scored the first basket for the Dunkirk team, then Bremmer hit a charity toss to put Dunkirk ahead for the only time that they were ever in the lead. Mark- ley then countered with two charity tosses to put Montpelier back in the lead and from then on led the entire game. Pacers Should Be Praised For Seasonis Record FANS SHOULD REFRAIN FROM CONDEMNING TEAM FOR LOSS AT TOURNEY. WON 16, LOST 7 Since the sectional tourney many comments have been heard around the various business places as well as on the streets, 3 few of which have praised the members of the basketball team, while others have been nothing but con- demnation for losing the sectional. How- ever, there is no team found anywhere that is not subject to criticism when it loses. It might be well for some of the fans, who have resorted to nothing but criti- cism, to take a few moments to review the record of the Pacers during the sea- son just closing. They have won a total of 16 games and have lost only seven. This is a fine record and the boys have 3, right to expect praise for it, as this is the best record that has been made for several years, if not the best. The next highest record was that of 15 games won in 1927. One of the outstanding and most gra- tifying results of this year is that the Pacers were able to defeat the Hartford City Airedales this year as well as last, making two consecutive years that the Pacers have defeated their most bitter rivals. This fact alone should be worth praise for the Pacers. We all agree that the outcome at the sectional might have been better and that we all would have appreciated a sectional victory, but such was not the case and the boys are entitled to much credit for the entire season. It is hard to tell what the team will be next year as six of the first 10 play- ers will graduate this year. A basketball team cannot be made in a year or two and the fans may be much more disap- pointed next year than they have been this year. The coach as well as the team should receive the support of all fans even though they suffered some defeats which are certain to occur. A part of the reason for the Pacers' downfall at the sectional was that they were playing without the services of Sholty who was on the sick list and Evers who saw little action due to a previous illness. This alone might be the reason for their defeat. The upset experienced at Hartford City by the Pacers was not the only one in the sectionals held over the state, as Huntingburg and Jefersonville were picked as sectional winners, but both were defeated. The fans should not con- demn the Pacers too severely as they no doubt did the best they could under the circumstances. WHNS-- SEVEN DEFEATS Pacers Defeated In Tournament By Ridgeville LEAD FOES IN FIRST THREE PERIODS WITH LAST BEING CLOSE. FINAL SCORE 29-27 The Montpelier Pacers lost to the Ridgeville Cossacks Friday night in a second round game by the score of 29-27. The Pacers opened the game with a basket by Markley but Ridgeville was quick to counter. The Pacers led at the end of the first quarter by the score of 10-5. The Pacers still seemed to be going on to victory when they increased their lead and continued the finest basketball that had been played in the tournament. They were ahead at the end of the first half, 17-13. At the beginning of the second half Ridgeville hit their stride and started wearing the Pacers lead down to where they were in shooting distance and at the end of the third quarter the Pacers held a margin of only two points, 23-21. At the beginning of the final period the Pacers lost Retz via the personal foul route and from then on it was any- body's game. Ridgeville tied the score and then went into the lead with only two minutes left to play. Markley then hit one for the Pacers and the score was tied, and with only 50 seconds left to play Dallas Cope tipped one in for his team and went into the lead, the Pacers tried hard to knot the score but failed in a desperate attempt. Pacers Claim Victory From Hartford Twp. PACERS EXPERIENCE UNEXPECT- ED BATTLE THURSDAY NIGHT BUT WIN BY SCORE OF 31-29 The Montpelier Pacers ran headlong into an unexpected battle Thursday night with the Hartford township Gorillas. The Pacers were supposed to have an easy victory, but found the Hartford township team to be better than statis- tics showed. The Hartford township Gorillas found their mark early in the game and led the Pacers 8 to 6 at the end of the first quarter, but the Pacers were able to tie the score at the end of the half, 21 to 21. Pacers Win Seventh Annual Big Four Tourney - Defeating Pennville In Championship Game Sat. Night MONTPELIER WVINS VICTORY FOR FIRST TIME SINCE 1934 IN TOUR- NAMENT HELD AT LOCAL GYMNASIUM BY SCORE OF 30-21. CHESTER DEFEATS ROLL IN CONSOLATION TILT The Montpelier Pacers proved victors' over the Pennville Bulldogs in the championship game of the Blind Tour- ney that was played at the local gym Saturday night. This was the Pacers' first victory since 1934 when they were successful in defeating the Warren team by the score of 21 to 19. In many ways the Montpelier Pacers were very fortunate in playing Penn- ville for the championship game due to the fact that the Bulldogs experienced a hard-fought game in the afternoon when they met Chester Center. Although this was the championship game, it was not the most outstanding game of the tourney because the Penn- ville-Chester game was much more closely contested, having had the score tied twice. The Pacers were never in danger of losing this game from the first quarter on to the finish. Liberty Lions Lose To Pacers In Final Game CLOSE SUCCESSFUL SEASON BY DEFEATING LIBERTY FOR FIFTEENTH VICTORY The Montpeier Pacers closed a Very successful season Friday night in de- feating the badly crippled Liberty Cen- ter Lions in a rough and tumble game by the score of 36-23. The Liberty Center team came to this city to play the Pacers without the use of two of their regulars, Fiedler and Johnston. The Liberty Lions grabbed an early lead and it looked for a minute as though there might be an upset. The Pacers battled the Lions up to the very last second of the quarter but were un- able to overcome the lead they had built. Lions 11, Pacers 9. The Pacers came out for the second quarter and regained their usual stride and went on a scoring spree and were ahead at the half, Pacers 20, Lions 13. The Pacers had accomplished very much by holding the Lions to a lone fielder and garnering 11 points for themselves. Pacers Suffer Defeat In Tilt At Warren Fri. ONE OF MOST EXCITING GAMES OF YEAR WITNESSED BY FANS, LOSE 36-35 IN OVERTIME The Montpelier Pacers were the vic- tims of the "process of elimination" method in an overtime battle at Warren Friday night with a score of 36 to 35. The Pacers were the first to find their stride and opened the scoring of the game. Warren started the game with only two regulars in the lineup. The two teams played on even terms the early part of the quarter, but Warren spurted ahead at the latter part of the quarter, 10-7. The Warren team continued their drive through the early part of the second quarter, the Pacers 'then turned on the steam and came within one point at the half, 16-15. Chester Center Lost To Pacers Friday Evening MONTPELIER SHAKES OFF JINX IN FRIDAY'S VICTORY WITH DE- CISIVE SCORE OF 44 TO 30 The Pacers, back in their usual stride Friday evening, defeated the Chester Indians 44-30 on the Montpelier floor. Both teams lost no timelin getting started as each scored seven points in the first minute of play. Each team showed considerable scoring power in the first quarter as the totals for both teams came to 28. The Pacers led at the quarter, 15-13. The Pacers were wearing their new socksg this is the first time the Pacers have worn socks this year. The socks set the Pacers off in fine style, and make them one of the best dressed teams in the state. 6tCQl":5 ,SAQJMA We They We They Nov. l-larllord Cily... .32 3l Jan Warren .....,.., .35 36 Nov.
