P. H. S. Foot Ball Team
P. H. S. 140 10092, OPPONENTS 0
HIS is a record worth having, is it not? This is the first time in the
history of P. H. S. that a team has closed a season with such a record.
That "goose egg" for the opponents is what appeals to us, and
therefore we feel that our team is "the goose that laid the golden
egg"-golden for us, not for the other teams. But say, we worked for it.
All the teams except one were evenly matched in weight, but what was the
difference? It was for old P. H. S., and with each game the playing was
harder, that we might keep the record.
The season's record is due to three reasons: first, team work without
starsg second, faithful and hard practice and training,--there were many
night's practise in the rain, third, Coach Bailey.
The season was started at home with Lima. They had a good team
but could not solve our trick plays, with the result of P. H. S. 19, L. H. S.
Sidney was next at Sidney. The day was too hot for a good fast game,
but P. H. S. came off the winners 9 to 0.
Then one week later we entered the "lists" with Steele's warriors.
We certainly had some game. For fifty minutes we slipped and slid in the
rain and mud. P. H. S. scored only one touchdown.
VVc met Urbana the next week and here Mote proved himself to be
some sprinter by landing two touchdowns, while Brown came along with
ai third. This was a hard game for there was snow and this made the ball
hard to handle. P. H. S. 16. U. H. S. 0.
Then we got some more of Sidney. Brown tried all of the trick plays,
and nearly every play that we had. The only time P. H. S. had any trouble
making downs was when we were on the "diamonds" where it was muddy.
P. H. S. 50. S. H. S. 0.
Next to Lima. If there ever was a game that was hard to win, it was
at Lima. We broke thru for only two touchdowns but Bartholomai's drop
kick and the kicked goals brought the score up to 15, with Lima 0. The
Lima field was soft for a change, due to the weather.
The following Thursday was Thanksgiving Day. This was the last
game of the season and with one of the strongest teams. "Would Urbana
score?" was the questiong we had long before put away any doubts as to
who would win, but could we keep the record clean? The team said "No"
to the first question, and there was determination in their answer. The
fellows were in the best of shape and spirits even down to the last sub. Just
before dinner their spirits fell a little but they all said "No" to the turkey
and many other good things, until supper. A nice little shower came just
before the game, and frightened out a part of the crowd, but it takes more
than an ordinary rain to stop a foot-ball game.
We went to the field early, and ran through a few signals and then went
to the "Club House" for final instructions. Here we were given to under-
stand that Urbana should not score under any circumstances.
The whistle blew and we were off. VVe started the score in the first
quarter and scored in every quarter of the game until at the end. P. H.
S. Q6. U. H. S. 0. Open plays were used to good effect. A crowd of about
seven hundred people saw the game, which was a fitting close to the season.

P. H. S. Basket Ball Team
. H. S. had a fairly successful Basket Ball season. Although the team
lost four games, we ought not to complain, for the winning of a
game is a secondary matter: the drill and discipline gained is of
greater importance. That the team was a good one and deserved
to win is evident from a brief review of the work of the boys who composed it.
"Big" was the only representative which the class of '11 had in this
year's team. He filled the position of right guard in a very creditable man-
ner. Cleanliness is his motto, for he always played straight, clean basket
ball. His good guarding, as well as the unique way in which he got across
the floor and dropped the pill in the box, won for him the admiration of every
one. We regret very much that this was his last year of High School basket
"Brownie" was Captain and the only real veteran on the team. He
played the position of right forward to the satisfaction of all who witnessed
his playing. It seemed impossible for him to get in a position in which he
could not shoot a goal. As captain he showed himself to be a Very capable
leader and got the best team together that P. H. S. has had for some time.
He seemed to be the hub of the team, for when he was out of the game the
rest could not play half as well. His work on the basket ball floor for the
past two years has surely been praiseworthy, and we are glad that he has
one more year to play with P. H. S.
No one questions "Barty's" ability as a basket ball player. He was
always right there with the goods when it came to securing points, for he
got more field goals than any man on the team. He played hard all the time
and we are glad he will be with the team next winter.
"Little said and much done. " This will apply to "Amy" who never
grumbled nor did anything but play basket ball. He played the position
of left forward and he played it well. It is a hard matter to write about him
for you can never catch him still long enough to find out anything about him.
It seems about as easy for him to go up in the air after the ball as to run on
the floor. Not many High School teams have his equal as an all round
player, and P. H. S. is fortunate in having him for next year.
"Curly" never did anything not.able in school for he hasn't been here
long enough, but then we all know that he played a great game at left guard.
He also had the habit of occasionally shooting a field goal. At no time was
he the least bit bashful about getting into the game, for he was usually the
first one to get a cheer. Since this is only his first year, "dope" has it that
he will be one of the stars of the team for the next three years.
Not all the praise. for the past successful basket ball season is due to
the regular members of the team. The subs and second team men should
get a good share of it for they work about as hard as the regular men and
usually get no honor for it. If it were not for these fellows the practice would
be fruitless for the first team. Those who worked the hardest and yet did
not get a regular position on the team are Hinsch and Bateman.
