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.

P. H. S. Base Ball Team
T THE end of the basket ball season the outlook for a good baseball
team was rather discouraging, as some of last years' team were gone
and Brown had been injured in the basket ball game at Lima. Now
since the new team has shown us what they can do everyone is very
Captain Schaffer got the boys together and began to practise the first
week after spring vacation. Six of last years team came out and a number
of others, all trying for positions on the team. The new boys who were
successful in getting positions are very capable players. They have all been
very faithful in practising, and, since practise makes perfect, we feel confident
that " Long John" will have a winning team.
The first three games scheduled had to be cancelled because the weather
man sent us some weather which was not exactly adapted to base ball.
The first game of the season was played May 5 with Wapakoneta, on
the home grounds. The score of 17 to 2 in our favor tells the story of the
game better than the Writer can tell it.
On May 13, Stivers journeyed up from Dayton and crossed bats with
our team. By some very nice work the boys defeated them by a score of
9 to 4. The team should be congratulated on winning the game, as Stivers
has a very strong team this year. If the boys play ball in every game as
they have in these two, we are sure that at the end of the season we can
say that it has been a successful one.
