HE Grade School came to the front this year and proved what they could do if
they were only given a chance.
Despite the fact that this is the first year Peshastin has had a regular grade school
team, the boys won at least one game from every team in the valley except Wenatchee
Junior High. If Peshastin could have entered the tournament no one would have been
surprised to see us take the cup. If you do not believe so, note the fact that the only
time Cashmere won from Peshastin was by a lead of one point gained in a three
minute overtime to break a 5e5 tie. Also, Peshastin won both games from the fast
Both Leavenworth and Dryden were so badly beaten that they were not able to
recover enough to play a second game. The Peshastin boys spent their time defeating
the other teams in the valley.
The second team consisted of Edward McGinnis, Herman Werner, Billy Pearson,
Everett Waggoner, Robert Lynn, and Abbott Beacham.
The games played were as follows:
Peshastin 12 Dryden Peshastin 11 Wenatchee Jr. Hi 14
Peshastin 11 Cashmere Peshastin 18 Monitor 16
Peshastin 17 Leavenworth Peshastin 10 Wenatchee jr. Hi 11

l-ligh School Basketball
Fred was a good shooter and a careful player. Right in the middle of the season
he was laid up in the hospital. But Fred believed, "you can't keep a good man down,"
and he reported back for practice before the close of the season. Fred still remembers
how he scored against Cashmere's first team on their own floorg but the others of the
team brag that they worked the ball down to him. Fred will be back next year.
CHARLES DEMPSEY CCHUCKD-Forward and Center
He played against the tallest man in the county. Chuckling Chuck was quick as
a wink and just as elusive. He could squeeze out of a tight corner that most fellows
couldn't get into.
JAMES GIBBONS QSNUBBERSD-Forward and Running Guard
Snubbers was so fast that his olpponents could never find him. When he took a
spill he turned three summersaults own the floor before he could stop. They couldn't
get held ball on Snubbers because he was too fast. He could stand at one end of the
floor, pass to the other end, run down the floor, and receive his own pass just in
time to make a basket. His specialty-demonstrated at Sunnyslopwwas attempting
a pass to a team mate, having the pass go Wild, and turn out to be a basket.
JAMES GRAY CJIMD-Center and Guard when Chuck played Center
jim could wrestle the ball right out of an opponents hands. And when he jumped,
believe me, no one said "take the lead out of your feet." A steady consistent, player,
good for long distance shots. Jim had the "never say die" spirit and the harder he
got licked the harder he played.
ALLISON TOWNE CALLEYD-Guard
Big, good natured Alley could stretch out like elastic and snare a pass most
anywhere. If he tri ped or was knocked down he bounced right up again with a
grin that was broader than ever. When Alley was in as guard it was just the same
as a fence which his opponents had a hard job to penetrate. Whenever you heard him
say, "Oh-oh," you would know he had steppe on the wrong foot. His accurate
passes were responsible for many of the scores our boys made.
ROBERT SPRINGER CBOBD-Guard
Bob was a hard player and so engrossed with playing that while he was in a
game he forgot everythin else. Although Bob is a freshman this year he showed
up very well and he would work out to be a regular after this. He has an easy way
o handling himself on the floor which should give him the possibility of being a
star player. Even if Bob did have a long face all during the game he was ready to
smile again as soon as it was over.
This was Elbert's Hrst attempt at basketball but he looked good. With no chance
to practice regularly he got into only a part of one or two games. This is Elbert's
first year in high school, and as good material for coming year he can't be beat.

.9 '41 ciation to Miss Parker for her help during basketball season.
