Not a very good showing. But the team was much better on the floor than on paper. We played in hard luck at times and deserved to win some of the games we lost, but we didn't- nuf said. The first half of the schedule was a draw with three games won and three games lost-and Teddy Linn was pleased. Then we went to Iowa to start the toboggan party. Down we went until we happily rode over Northwestern for the second time. After this sweet victory we closed the season by bowing to Wisconsin in our own gymnasium. We lost to Illinois by three points in a hard fought game and we bowed to Minnesota 20 to 18. Purdue beat us twice, 14 to 12 and 16 to 13. In all these games the team gave a good account of themselves, so we do not feel bad about them. Our greatest boast is a clean-cut victory over Wisconsin on their home floor. This game put Wisconsin out of the race and is good evidence of what our fellows really had in them. Too, we beat Northwestern twice. There are several members of the team that deserve special mention. In Captain Townley, Chicago had a leader and a player of the highest type. Fran played well all season and led the team in scoring. His work in the Minnesota game at Minneapolis was the best that had been seen on the local floor. His loss will be greatly felt by the Chicago team as he was a strong, fast, and brilliant player with a world of spirit. Sam Rothermel played a stellar game at guard. What he was not able to break up, was not worth breaking up. He got his hands in the way of more sure baskets than any guard who has worn the Maroon for many years. Charlie Bent at forward was always a reliable man. He was a good floor man, a good shot and was as fast as a streak of lightning. If you do not believe this, just give Charlie a basketball and then try to catch him. Gorgas at center played a good, consistent game and was a great help in the passing game. He was a good scorer and an excellent defensive player. 'tDutch'i has two more years. We expect big things from him. Earl Bondy, or 145 pounds of speed and nerve, was a valuable asset to the team. He was a good shot and a good guard. Developing himself by hard work, he rose to varsity caliber and carried away one of the coveted "C"s. Our two juniors were Clark and Parker. The latter was elected captain for next year. These two men played a consistent game and we wish them luck next year. Then there are the men who plugged and worked to help the varsity, but who had little chance to play. They deserve more credit than our stars, and we hope that those who read this article will give it to them. They are: jim Evans, Harry McGaughey, Tom Gentles, and Ed. Orr.

MacDonald. Owing to the twenty men retained on the squad a stellar group was never in vogue. Owing to the equality of the men various combina- tions were constantly used in scrimmage work in developing the Varsity. It is predicted that five yearlings at least will be valuable assets to next year's Varsity. Men who have developed are: Forwards ......... ..G. Blocki L. Tatge Centers . . . . .E. Vollmer Gaurds .................. ....... J . Bryan C. Jackson Other recruits to be heard from are Barborka, Landgraf, Rohn and Rouse, who can shoot baskets. More and Hinkle are husky centers, and the guards are Buchanan Moorman, Miller and Zahringer.

All those with less than a fifty per cent average fell by the wayside. After completing the first round which included one hundred trials each, ten men remained. The semi-finals discarded four moreg leaving' three freshmen and three varsity men to compete for the prizes. The competitors were so evenly matched that the winner of the gold basketball fob and first place was decided when Freshman Barborka missed his 200th shot, and Bill Gorgas, sophomore, made good. Third position was also at stake when Freshman Blocki missed his final attempt and Coke Clark made good, winning the bronze ball. Summaries: 1st Semi- Prelim. round. final. Finals. Total.
