DOWNS WEST SIDERS
Brazil, jan. 6.
Playing against the southem brand
of slow basketball and slower officials,
the Scarlet and Gray colors faded into
pink and white under the pressure of
a 24-22 setback at the hands of the
Brazil Blue Devils. After leading 19
to 15 at the beginning of the final
period the Scarlets fell behind with
three minutes remaining in the fray.
Paul Brady led the losers with
eleven points, while the remainder of
the scoring was evenly distributed.
The Red Devils' defense worked ef-
fectively in the first and third quarters,
holding the Brazil quintet to only one
field goal each period. but crumbled in
the second and fourth stanzas.
BROOK BEATEN BADLY
BY BATTLING DEVILS
Brook, jan. 10.
The Scarlet five got back on the
winning wagon with an easy victory
over Virgil Robbins' Brook quintet, 45
to 29. The Red Devils held a 27-14 ad-
vantage at the end of the half, after
being at a 9 to 7 disadvantage at the
end of the initial period.
Bob Riley injured his ankle in the
closing minutes of the first half, after
scoring 13 points on the Devils' side
of the ledger: and was out-scored in
the second half by L. Marsh with 14
points in the fight for scoring honors.
"Dufe" Friend and Carlton Marsh
added six points apiece, while Brady
and Bob Van Camp played effective
floor games for the Red Devils.
Delphi, jan. 13.
Scoring half the points, "Stoop"
Marsh led the West Siders to 28-26
victory over the Delphi Oracles after
leading 19 to 12 at halftime. Along
with Laverne's 14 points, Carlton
shoved in six to give the Marshes 20
out of the Devil's 28. Riley, Brady,
Collins and Friend furnished the re-
The Scarlets led throughout the en-
tire fray, holding a 11-2 advantage at
the end of the first period and a 22-15
count at the end of the third stanza.
With two minutes remaining in the
contest the Devils were leading 28 to
18, when Long, of the Delphi quintet,
pushed three "long" shots through and
added a couple of free throws to give
the game a thrilling finale.
Lafayette, jan. 25.
The Scarlets returned home after
three games away and downed the Wil-
liamsport Bingies 39 to 34, after lead-
ing 21 to 13 at the intermission. The
Bingies scored a free throw to start
the tilt, but immediately lost their lead
and never regained it.
Riley led the locals with 17 points,
while L. Marsh accounted for 12.
Brady added five, while Douglas, Col-
lins and Friend tossed in the remain-
RED DEVILS OUT-ROUGH
FLORA OUINTET, 48-22
Flora, jan. 27.
Not being satisfied with the number
of football trips they made, the Scar-
let and Gray basketeers made a "foot-
ball" trip to Flora and defeated the
home team 48 to 22, while having 24
personal fouls called on them. While
going down in defeat, the Flora five
managed to get 19 fouls chalked up
against them to make the roughest
game of the season. Riley and Van
Camp left the game on fouls, while
Carlton Marsh, Laverne Marsh, Col-
lins and Friend collected three apiece.
Two of the Flora quintet left the game
via the foul route, while the remainder
of the players got at least two person-
Bob Riley took all scoring honors
by gathering in 20 points, while Bob
Van Camp and Paul Brady grabbed
six and seven, respectively.

The West Side Red Devils found
little difficulty in running over the
Otterbein Red Devils, 25 to 12 and
34 to 16 advantages at the end of the
first and third quarters, respectively.

nabbing 18 points, while the rest of

Riley CSouth Bendj Riflemen, 41 to
27. The Riflemen took the lead at the
beginning of the fray, 6 to 1, and led

SCARLETS DROPPED BY
WINAMAC, 29 TO 24
Lafayette, Feb. 17.
The absence of the Marsh brothers
and Bob Riley, due to injury, proved
too much for the weakened West Side
quintet, when it was handed its fourth
setback of the season by Winamac,
29-24. The tilt was a see-saw battle
most of the way with the Winamac
five taking their final advantage late
in the third period. The largest ad-
vantage throughout the game was six
points, which the visiting quintet held
when they took their final lead.
Scoring honors for the losers went
to Brady and Collins, who collected
8 and 6, respectively, while no other
Red Devil scored more than two
Without the services of L. Marsh
and minus Bob Riley and Bob Van
Camp for half the tilt, the West Side
Red Devils wound up a very good bas-
ketball season with their second con-
secutive defeat at the hands of the
Attica Red Ramblers, 30 to 28. The
fray "see-sawed" in the first half with
the Red Devils going out in front
14-13 at halftime and then taking a
23 to 13 advantage midway in the
third period. With five minutes re-
maining in the fray, the Devils led
27 to 18, when a single handed nine
point drive by Beedle, Ramblers'
guard, put the game on an even basis.
The Attica five took their winning lead
in the final minute of play to give the
Red Devils their fifth defeat in
Attica, Feb. 24.

ROBERT VAN CAMP RICHARD DOUGLAS PAUL BRADY
"Sammy," playing his second year
on the W. L. varsity, was one of the
Devil's trickiest forwards. Although
his magician-like passing and drib-
bling gained most of the attention,
Bob was extremely accurate for the
floor and a very reliable defensive
"Stoop," new to W. L. this year,
formerly of New Albany, was the
Scarlet's most dangerous threat this
season. Laverne was the key man
to the team's spirit and "pepper."
Marsh's six foot, three inches were
very essential to the Devil attack.
It can be noticed that four of the
West Side defeats were suffered
when "Stoop" was out of action due
to ill health.
"Horsey," closing his third year
as Red Devil co-captain, was high
scorer in the Scarlet lineup. On the
hardwood, Riley is most dangerous
from the foul line. Teamed with
"Big Stoop," he gave the West Sid-
er's a very potent scoring duo. The
loss of Riley will present W. L. with
quite a vacancy in athletics.
l'AU H F1 DIRTY-SIX
"Doug," co-captain of the West
Sider's, was the only starter under
the six foot mark. He makes up for
his small stature in his demon-like
speed, dribbling, "pepper" and ac-
curacy on long shots. Dick was one
of the best of the defensive men on
the Devil team.
"Dutch," the unsung hero of the
Devil roster, proved himself a de-
mon on defense. He made one of
the most reliable players on the
squad, by hard work at practice ses-
ion. What Riley and L. Marsh
are to the offense-"Dutch" is to
defense. Quiet in voice, Gene pre-
serves all his spirits for the games,
where he really puts forth.
WILLIAM VAN CAMP
"Bill," redheaded cousin to Bob,
is one of the most accurate shooters
on the Devil brigade. Bill kept the
"pepper" up on the bench while the
regulars were in action. I-Ie proved
his worth as a very reliable relief
man early in the season.
Paul, ending his basketball career
this season, was one of the boys who
rendered the West Side team much
service during the season. His as-
sistance to the regulars proved quite
helpful, at times, to the Devils. The
Scarlet's found Paul's eye quite an
advantageous factor in their victory
"Ned," accompanying his big
brother, Laveme, out of the "Deep
South," has shown that he is one of
the best defensive netters in the
game. "Pawnee" will return next
year to "slay 'em" with his threats
for good old W. L.
"Dufe," playing his second year
as a reserve, is registered as one of
the best guards ever to land at West
Side. "Dufe" is sure to prove one of
the main cogs of the 1939-40 model
of the W. L. H. S. basketball ma-
"Bill," with his advantageous six
feet, is known as a defensive threat
for the West Siders. It is certain
that Bill will also be one of the
"Guns" of next year's team.

teams were Lewis, Heine, Ham,

cause they were played entirely
for the boys' enjoyment.
GOLF AT W. L.
March 26th brought eight
golfers, with clubs pointing to the
state tourney, out for the open-
ing rounds of the course. Since
1930, when J. P. Wayne origin-

the Red Devils have set the pace
for the remaining teams in the
Mid West Conference, dropping
that title but twice.
