They won over Butler 63-20 on Thursday evening and defeated Mexico 43 35 on Friday evening. However, they met defeat at the hands of the Peru Tigers on Saturday afternoon, 54-30. The Indians put up a stiff bat- tle with the score being tied at the first quarter, but the long arms of Karowsky, Munsey, and Mathews proved too much for our boys. The Peru Tigers won the sectional with a 40-32 win over Bunker Hill, who had advanced to the finals on victories over Converse and Gilead. : r rw 1 7 'v- , ' , , . , . -1 C S I v7 4 L' I , F115 .'1' .I "' s , :Y I .,-,',rS 'NI -- .' , ' L..

Due to the number of inexperienced players in the organizatlon we only marched at two of the home games, however.
