BASE BALL SEASON SHOWING PROMISE
BASKCT BALLSEASON BR006HT
TO A CLOSE OH THE HILL
Teem Make Satisfactory Record and Promises Much
For the Future.
The basketball senson of our Hill
Billies has been brought to u close
owing to the fact that we did not
have a gym of our own and to the
fact that baseball season Is upon us
Coach Higginhotham has decided to
disband his qulntit.
From the scores or I he games play-
ed this senson It would seem thnt
we did not enjoy a very successful
season hut ufter nil things arc sum-
marised we cnu look ujhui the past
season with some pride.
The boys dkl not gtt started to
work until nfter the holidays u We
could not procure a place for them to
practice in and it was January lie-
fore the use of the Memorial Hall
whs obtained and regular practice
started. Also the team was made up
entirely of new men with one excep
tion that one being Clifford Carruth
who plated with the Unnts In 1917
the lust Jeiir that the school was rep-
resented .on the court.
Taking till late start and the ma- so a body could really enjoy it.
HILL BILLY CAdERS LOSE
JWQ BATTLES TO WILD CATS
Games Played at Abilene February 4 and 5.
Sleeping through the fir a 28 min-
utes of play the Abilene Christian
College Wildcuts milled hi the Inst
19 minutes overcame u four-point
lead scored a total of II points and
won the second and final game of the
series from the Daniel linker Millies
here Thursday afternoon February 5
2fl to 10.
Not during the entire season have
followers of the purple and white re-
celt ed the thrill that was theirs Thurs-
day. Willi the nillles leading 0 to 5
at the close of the first period A. C.
C. funs felt thut the W licit. s could
score enough In the last half to win.
Hut the sluggishness of the Wildcats'
play In the first part made them none
to' certain unci not until the locals
went Into a 6-polnt lead In the last
sis minutes did they feel any too cer-
tain. Danlle linker clearly outfought their
opponents In three-fourths of the
gnmr. The Wildcnts were hnvlug poor
luck with many shots but so were the
Hill Billies. Until teams were guard-
ing closely but the Hill lllllles lield a
slight edge In goal tossing. Hut when
field goals hy Drown and Powell and
a free goal by Powell gave the Chris-
tians a one-point margin the Daniel
Raker team crumpled never to re-
cover. Had Daniel Baker exhibited the
form in foul goal shooting that was
theirs the rst game with Simmons the
Christians might hnve received a se-1
vert setback In the T. I. A. A. chnm-
plomhlp aspirations. The Hill Bil-
lies exhibited poor form In completing
their the last game with Simmons the
und this factor greatly aided the
Wildcats to win. The visitors com-
pleted but three out of 12 free at-
tempts while the Wildcats were mak-
ing successes of six out of ten at-
tempts. The line-ups: A. C. C.i Powell and
Cantrell forwards! Hill center: Ad

ken Alford and Truramell forwards:
Patenon center: K. Stringer and

tcriiil Into consideration wc can look
upon the past senson us a success as
every game played was with the ex-
ception o fthe two that we won lost
by close scores Hint showed the lack
of tenin work. In basketball like any
other tenm sport more than one sen-
son Is needed to hulld up n winning
club and with the experience Rained
by the hoys this year and with the
line thnt our conches got on the ma
terial nt hand we can focus our gate
on a winning club In the future.

wuy ho would save all the moonlight
thnt Is wasted during the cold months
and turn it loose In the warm weather
being upset here Wednesday night
February 4 when Daniel linker caught
A. C. C. off her guard nnd held the
strong Wildcat fixe down to a 21 to
17 score. The Christian teunt was
hndly off form both in their passing
gnme nnd hi goal shooting and al-
though maintaining the lend through-
out the lust three-fourths of the gnme
it was by such a scant margin as to
throw n bad senre Into Wildcat funs.
Time after time Powell unit Cnntrcll
who hnve played stellar roles in prev-
ious gnuies of the present season miss-
ed easy shots from under tile goal
thnt should hnve rolled up n heavy
score for the Christian College quin-
Daniel linker scored first on free
tosses by Patterson and Tnimmcll
followed by Hill's foul gnat nnd a
basket from the floor by Cnntrcll.
For tile next ten minutes the two
tenuis ulternnlcd ut scoring neither
doing any grent amount till a two-
Kiint counter by Powell gave the
Wllcats a slight advantage which was
never overcome by the llrownwood
five. The half ended with the score
11 to 9 In favor of A. C. C. Counters
were still more scarce in the final
The greatest lead ever attained by
the Morrismen was seven points with
a score of 20 to 111 near the close of
the game though this was out to a
four-point margin before the gun fire
ended the nightmare. Fouls were fre-
fluent throughout the contest but in
effectiveness In finding the basket cost
cither side the chance to profit to a
great extent by this medium.
Both tennis showed up well on the
defense. Brown nnd Adams proved
hard for the opposing forwards to
break through while the Daniel Ba
ker guards Stringer arid Mclnnis
were equally as good. Alford was
the best offensive player of tle night
though nothing extra-ordinary was
displayed by anyone In this depart
ment. High point-honors were di
vided evenly between Hill otf A. C.
C. and Alford of Daniel Baker each
of whom scored seven points.'

'1 to 21.
It was a nip-rind-tuck affair thru-
out the lire period the piny of Al-
frd Daniel linker forward being the
fintlire. Alford Is one of the-best
forwards Hint 1ms been seen here this
season and was responsible for eight
of his team's fifteen points made in
the first half.
In the seeoiul half the Daniel linker
quintet showed a sudden slump In the
form that was so notlrc.'ihle in their
play of Friday night. West nnd
Pceplcs hit their gonl-shnotlng stride
mid were able lo chalk up enough
ixihiK tn win In I lie last rlffhl minutes
of play. Alfonl was unable to find
receiver for his pnssei in the last lew
uilnutes and almost all of these were
recovered by the McMurry team.
A 1 ford was high-point man with
nine points to his credit. He fell off
completely in the second half how-
ever falling to make n single goal.
Peeples and Puuc of McMurry came
second willi eight points each. Payne
for the first time this season f nihil
to make a point in last night's game.
His lightning-like .speed was one of
the contributing factors to the Indi-

During the world war Miss How-
ley was nn official entertainer for the
American I'Apcdltlonary Forces In
France. At the close of the war she
remained in Kttropo and gave per-
formances over F.nglitnd France and
Germany. Nowhere hns her perform-
nuec failed to be a decided success. I
The most notable characteristic of
her work perhaps is her jiowcr to
grip and hold nu audience regardless
of age sex of sie. She Is iossessed
of a vivid nnd winning personality
and hns the rnre und charming qual-
ity of being able to make .herself one
of the audience.
Miss Hew ley's program will prob-
ably consist of two one act plays and
n number of selections.
It is hoped thnt the students will
get behind with the Department of
Oratory und Expression which is re-

BOTH GAMES HARD FOUGHT
Our fighting Hill Billies gave u
good account for themselves in the
two games with Simmons at Abilene
an February 3 and 3 but were unable
to hrina back victories.
In both games the Hill BlUloa
Jumped Into the load-early In
the game but wearied and 'lost the
lead not to regain it. This was prob-
ably due to the fact thnt the Hill Bil-
lies had only been out for about three
weeks and were not yet in training. '
The second game was a hectic af-
fair. The first half ended with u
score af 23 to 0 in favor of the Cow-
boys after the Hill BHIIes had lead
during the early part of the game.
In the last half the OoaU continued
their loose playing for a while until
the lead the Cowboys held was about
fifteen points. Then wtyh n rush the
Goat scored twelve points In the laa
