' wh BRAZIL OUINIET 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. DAILEY DEMONS DEFEAT DELPHI 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- maining count. 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. SCARLETS DROP BINGIES, 39-34 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- der. 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- als apiece. Bob Riley took all scoring honors by gathering in 20 points, while Bob Van Camp and Paul Brady grabbed six and seven, respectively. SCARLETS DOWN OTTERBEIN FIVE Lafayette, Feb. 1. 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. L. Marsh led the Devils' attack by nabbing 18 points, while the rest of the scoring was well divided. Every member of the Scarlet roster scored sometime throughout this tilt. RED DEVILS WIN AS RIFLEMEN MISEIRE Lafayette, Feb. 8. After leading 23 to 18 at the half, the West Siders went on to down the Riley CSouth Bendj Riflemen, 41 to 27. The Riflemen took the lead at the beginning of the fray, 6 to 1, and led until the end of the initial quarter, when the Red Devils put the game on an even basis, 9-9. The Scarlets then went on to take the lead for the re- mainder of the game. Riley and L. Marsh together ac- counted for 23 of the West Siders' points, with Riley collecting 14 and "Nonnie" 9. Bob Van Camp, Brady and C. Marsh pushed them in from the forward positions, while Friend and Douglas held up the guards. 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 points. RED RAMBLERS ROUT DEVILS 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 eighteen starts. Attica, Feb. 24. 1 Xl P Plllill SEVEN

BASKETBALL LETTERMEN ii sti- 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 threat. LAVERNE MARSH "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. ROBERT RILEY "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. GENE COLLINS "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 marches. CARLTON MARSH "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. PAUL FRIEND "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- chine. WILLIAM COLE "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.

MINOR SPORTS BASEBALL REIGNS FIRST IN MINOR ATHLETICS Since 1932 the closing days of March have brought close to a score and a half of prospective batsmen and lielders out for dia- mond activities. Boasting an excellent record during the six years of baseball's existence at West Side, March 27 proved no exception to the rule, as nearly twenty-five base- ball players answered the call of Coach Dailey. Losing only one of last year's hrst ten, Dailey expects to con- tinue his winning ways with a line baseball season. This year's mound staff will probably con- sist of Collins, Riley, Brady, and Douglas with Bill VanCamp and Jerome Hill on the receiving end. A fine infield composed of Buttons, Marsh brothers, Brady, Riley, and Douglas, backed up by a likely looking outfield of McAfee, Friend, Shively. and Brady, will complete the Scarlet roster. I I 1 I INTRAMURAL ATHLETES The intramural athletics, for the athletic minded boys unable to compete with the varsity teams for various reasons, was under the direction of Carl Ham- mer. Basketball games were sched- uled between the several teams, organized under various senior captains. The captains of the teams were Lewis, Heine, Ham, VerHoeven, Puckett, T u r l e y, and Hamilton. No accurate rec- ord was kept of the games, be- 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- ated the golf team at West Side, the Red Devils have set the pace for the remaining teams in the Mid West Conference, dropping that title but twice. TUCKER TEACHES TENNIS Since 1928, Leslie Tucker has coached the Red Devil Tennis team without falling below a sec- ond place in the Mid West Con- ference meet. This year the team was re-or- ganized and Mr. Tucker is look- ing forward to a good season. Otto Steele, Grant Sutcliffe, re- turning from last year's team, and several seniors will compose this year's Scarlet racket com- bination. WEST SIDE GOES IN EOR TRACK Coach Dailey has several meets scheduled for the initial year of track's existence here in the Scarlet camp, among which are a three-way meet fCraw- fordsville, West Side, and jeffj, a six-way meet with six of the Mid-West Conference teams, and several meets with individ- ual schools such as Rensselaer, Brook, and jeff. m
