Travelling to Miami I for their Hrst big game on the road, the Bearcats were baffled by the brilliant shooting and floorwork of Taylor, Big Red acc. Bolton, Flax and Early were there with the necessary punch, however, and Varsity annexed one point victory, 35136, in one of the most exciting overtime matches ever witnessed in these parts. The end of the contest found most of the audience too weak to flounder out of the Oxford gymnasium. The game against Wesleyan was a continuation of the Miami game. Cincinnati succeeded in copping the game 2'5f'Z2, but there was a noted increase of apoplexy among the inhabitants of the Queen City. Bolton, of Cincinnati, and Halliday of Wesleyfan, were high point men. Then came Wittenberg and the survivers of this game were led, happy and hysterical, to various sanitariums by kindly disposed friends. The final score was 4846. Cincinnati had won four Buckeye games by a total point margin of seven markers. Captain Bolton was a tower of defense and stood head and shoulders over his mates in the scoring with fourteen points, The game made the Bearcats favorites to cop the championship. There was considerable worry over the two games with Denison, because of the long standing jinx that outfit has held over Cincinnati. but all fears were dispelled when the Chambers' quintet easily captured both of the games. Bill Popp, sophomore flash and the old reliable, Dan Early, were the leading lights in the twin victory. Dick Franz, general utility proved his wares in the second of these encounters. The victorious, record breaking march of the Bearcats hit Springfield like a tornado. This time the count was 39-30.

xii BOLTON, Center The Buckeye Cup. EARLY, Forward Captain Captainfelect Basketball ff? NCE again it can be set down how a Varsity team went out and did divers things which eventually led to no less a climax than the championship of the Buckeye Association. Dagwfidf The call for basketball was answered by a hoard of ambitious oval tossers. The team started the season minus the services of the great Ethan Allen, peer of athletes, but withal it was a doughty brigade of warriors who lined up for Cincinnati in the first game against Cedarville. The game was a walkaway for Cincinnati, every man on the U. C. seeing service during the game. The second game against the local Y afforded the Bearcats their first real test of the season. The iinal outcome of the game was 3863, with our boys on the right side of the scoring ledger. During the Christmas holidays Varsity engaged in three tilts which put them in exactly the right fettle for the start of the B. A. A. campaign. The orange and black of Princeton was seen flying considerably below half mast, as the Bearcats walked all over the easterners. The game drew a large crowd but was not much of a struggle. L. B. Harrison showed up a great deal better, forcing the locals to play an extra frame before the latter were able to emerge with a victory by the narrow mar' gin of three points. The last of the three games against Indiana provided the nrst setfback of the year for our boys, Bolton was stopped dead by the Hoosier defense, the big ten aggregation winning 56-40, Branch McCracken who played in the tri-state tournament here last year starred for the Hoosiers. The first Buckeye game was a thriller from start to finish. A little overcontident at the start, the Bearcats were finally lucky enough to come through with a one point victory. Ellis Flax dis' played a deadly eye for the old hoop, and this kept Cincinnati in the game, as the rest of the team were rather weak on the offensive, 41--' 'hav FR.-XNZ, F. Bolton drops a bunny.

FARRELL. WRIGHT, Manager MdndgCT'El6CC ning of the second half was forced out of the contest because of a fistic encounter with the Wittenf berg captain, Bauer. Nearly all opposing centers are inclined to overguard and ride big "Red." It was Ohio U., the team that had thrown such a scare into the Bearcat camp in the opening game, who stopped the march of the Red and Black. The Cincy satellites, appeared off form, none of them showing up well on the offensive except Dick Dial, who played the best game of any of the Chambersmen. The score was 4663. The defeat failed to discourage our boys who came back to hand Wesleyan the second defeat of the season and clinch the Buckeye title, 3166 Red Bolton headed a stonewall defense that proved entirely too much for the hostiles. With the title safely stowed away, and minus the services of "dead eyed" Flax, whose accuracy at long shots had become the terror of the Big Six, the Bearcats let down a little. They entered the last tilt against Miami a little bit stale. Franz, playing in Flax's place put up a brilliant game, but his failure to freeze the ball in the last few minutes of play enabled Leahy of Miami to sink a long one for the deciding margin. It was another one point victory, Z-9f3S, but it counted for little so no one was very worried. The final game of the season was played with St. Xavier, as the feature of the dedication of the splendid new field house at Corcoran Field. Evidently stale, and handicapped by the large floor, the Bearcats succumbed in the last few minutes of play, the Musketeers emerging with a win, 29f25. The guarding of McGrath of Xavier was a feature. Bolton and McGrath shared the point honors. The season was a great success. It marked Bolton's last year on the Bearcat quintet, but def veloped some flashy new stars in Franz, Flax and Popp. Bolton was a unanimous choice of the experts for All-Buckeye center, several other Varsity players vieing for honors.
