THE WEEK’S ACTIVITY IN
During the past week there have
been a number of basket ball games
played in the Polytechnic Gymnasium
A brief synopsis of the games played
is given below:
Poly vs. Southeastern Normal.
In the first game with S. E. Normal
of Oklahoma, Friday afternoon, Poly-
technic won bv a score of 24 to 6.
The Polytechnic men bad been ex-
pecting a bard game since the Okla-
homa team bad a record of not having
been defeated this season, and went
into the game a little dubious, but in
less than three minutes of playing it
was evident that the visiting team was
no match for the Panthers.
In the second game, Saturday even-
ing Polytechnic again won an easy vic-
tory to the tune of 4 to 5. Goals thrown
from field; Poly, St. Clair, 2; Gilliland.
2; Pates, 2; Young, 3; Tandy, 3;
Owens, 1; Barker, 3; Normal, Farris,
1; Goals on fouls: Poly—Young 4.
Barker 5; Normal—Farris 1, Pauli in 2.
Poly vs. Y. M. C. A.
In one of the best played and hard-
est fought games of the season the Y.
M. C. A. team defeated the Panthers
by the close score of 32 to 30, Monday
night. Up to three minutes within the
end of the game Poly was in the lead.
The line-up for Poly was: Center, St.
Claire; forwards, Tandy and Gilliland;
guards, Young and Bates. Y. M. C.
A.: Center, Lang Pecans; forwards,
Spencer and Birdsong; guards, Bush
and Be vans.
After this game the intermediate
Poly team succeeded in trimming the
“Y’f intermediate team by piling up a
score of 30 to IS. Poly’s intermediates
had considerably the best of the visit
Ir.g team. They lined up like this:
Poly, Owens, center; Parker, Payne
and Brigham, forwards; Brewster ami
Wilson, guards. “Y”, McKee, center;
Jordon and McCarren, forwards; Bos-
