Page Forty-four ’31 YEAR BOOK Personnel—Men’s Basketball Team—continued. B. O. MILLAR —Part of the heritage handed down to us by Normal teams of the past. He emerged from the chaos of battle a smooth, heady player, calm in the most critical situa¬ tions that arise. B. O. marvels at the facility with which his team-mates garner a blighting harvest of banishing personal fouls. C. HARRISON —Plays centre and defence. This strong silent youth also plays rugby for the Tigers. Acquired his basket¬ ball training at the East Calgary High School, anyway the part which Sgt. Sutherland hasn’t instilled into him. H. WALKER —Versatile athlete, one of the most colorful guards in the city. He plays a running guard game and usually man¬ ages to outscore his forward, this last somewhat at the ex¬ pense of the coach’s peace of mind. Played for the Raymond High School for two years in which they were provincial champions. H. VICKERY —Teams up well on defence with Walker. Plays a steady reliable game and can be depended upon when the going is rough. Came to us from the ranks of the Taber Juniors. Easily distinguishable on the floor by his long hair, long legs and long reach and jump. “Vic” is also an erst¬ while puck chaser if opportunity permits. F. SEARLE —Plays defence position to advantage of everyone but opposing forwards. He teams up well with Walker or Vickery as occasion demands. Played with the Magrath High School for two years before coming to Normal. SGT. SUTHERLAND (Coach) —Much credit is due to the Ser¬ geant for the success of the basketball teams, both boys’ and girls’. His constant, conscientious coaching has played an important part in welding the teams into the winning units they have become. A. E. HUTTON, (President) —The basketball club owes much to Mr. Hutton for the efficient manner in which he has handled the business of the club. He has given unstintingly of his valuable time to make this year a banner year for basketball in the school. NORMAL TEAM INTERMEDIATE CHAMPIONS Outplaying the Lethbridge Deuces on their own home floor, our boys won the final game of the series for the Provincial Inter¬ mediate Championship by a score of 39-27. This gave them a lead in the two-game series of 7S-S3. Our boys have played splendidly all year and much credit is due to them and to their coach, Sgt. Sutherland. The Year Book extends the heartiest congratulations to the Boys’ Basketball Team for their success. The “Get Acquainted” Picnic The social activities of the Normal School began this year with the annual “Get Acquainted” Picnic at St. George’s Island. Private street cars, loaded to the roof with carefree youths and maidens, hurried from the Normal School to the park. After lunch had been eaten the real events began. First came a contest to see which class could yell the loudest and longest. Contrary to expectations the girls did not win this event. It was won by the First Class men. Each class then put on a stunt. Here some of the ladies tried to cover their defeat in the yelling contest by carolling melodious choruses. IB was the the victor in this. Then came that never-to-be-forgotten beauty contest. The ladies were to dress the men in the raiment of the fair sex and were to exhibit them before the judges. This almost caused a panic. When the men were needed they had mysteriously dis¬ appeared. Yet they were not far away, for Mr. McCalla was all this time marvelling at the strange forms of animal life that could be seen crawling among the bushes. They were finally rounded up, dressed, and after being corralled into a small circle, were paraded before a committee of the staff for judgment. A series of tugs-of-war and baseball matches, in which all the classes participated, ended the picnic, and the tired but better- acquainted students returned home. Points were awarded for the winning classes in each of the events of the day. Class IA came first, with IB a close second.
