GOOD baseball team has
all those qualities which
the world must have in
order to have perma-
nent peace. It has coordination,
consideration, a respect for fair
play, and what is most important,
a friendly spirit. Wherever they
go, our American soldiers are
taking not only freedom, but
baseball. They are: teaching
children and adults in every part
of the world to play. If this con-
tinues, the day may yet come
when there will be true World
Series Baseball games. Then we
should live not only in an Amer-
ica which likes to play, but in a
world which likes to play. Hatred
and cruelty do not Hourish in an
atmosphere of friendly competi-
tion. The spirit of good sports-
manship and the fun of playing
together can be strong forces in
the attainment of peace in One

The Physical Fitness.Program for Boys
The year 1944-1945 has seen the Physical Fitness Program in Southside
given a stronger impetus, especially in the freshman and sophomore classes. The
Frosh and Sophomores have been working on the various types of apparatus and
have been doing callisthenics in their gym classes.
The war has brought about the need for a tough, durable and capable body
in every person entering the armed forces. Mr. Riley has been shaping his
students into healthy, wholesome youngsters and has been disciplining them so
that they will not have to undergo such a severe change when they enter the
An intramural basketball schedule was organized with the object of keeping
competition centered among Seniors and Juniors, as one group, and Frosh and
Sophomores as the other. This schedule worked out successfully although it was
not completed until March. '
Another innovation took place in basketball this year. Mr. George started
a series of games between the classes of Southside and those of the Academy.
During March, wrestling and boxing held the upper hand in school competi-
tion and a very nice tournament was held. On the whole, the athletic situation
has improved at Southside and the under-graduates are looking forward to an
even better season next year.
In the first interschool schedule ever played between the Academy and South-
side, the S. H. S. teams ended in a tie with the Academy for game honors. The
Southside quintets did, however, roll up the greater number of points, 242-227.
Southside's Freshman team found the sailing smooth as they took both games
from the Academy five. The Sophomores and Juniors lost one game apiece and
won one game. The Senior team was defeated in both of their encounters with
the Academy team, which was made up of Regional and City League players.
The basketball competition between schools was very well received and both
schools are looking forward to renewed competition next year.
