"Dad" Noles Academy basketball team
von their thirty-sixth strulght victory on
Tuesday evening at six. The game was
staged against the team from Tuscola High
School From the first blast of the whistle
it was a Ilattle HoaI. Hoth teams showed
excellent team-work and the outcome of
the game was never decided until the last
whistle was blown. When the first period
was ended the Acadcmltes held tho big
end of the score 10 to 8. The lineup was
somewhat altered because of slight in-
juries which Watson and Cantrell suffered
in the game with Ovalo. Kibble and Ar-
ledge were at forward Ixmgucre in tho
center and Ileale and Williams at guards.
In the second period Watson was put in
at center and Cantrell went In for Ar-
lergo The Huby Wildcats ran up a six-
point lead immediately after the second
perled began and retained a lead through-
out the period the game ended with the
rore 19 to 15

The basketball team of Cl)de High
School came over Wednesday afternoon
and played a return game with A. C C.
Academy. Immediately after the game
began the Clyde bos acquired a lead
of 4 to 0. It looked for a time that the
time had come when Dad's bunch would
be defeated but they began to fight and
soon gained the lead. The game was the
fastest )ct staged by the Academy bo)s.
This game brought their total number of
victories to seven with no defeats. It is
hoped by the student bod) that a match
can be obtained between the Academy
and the team of Abilene High School.
The final score of Wednesdays game was
26 lo 17. r
It is evident that A. C. C is growing
a thriving crop of athletes. These bo)s
will some day constitute the College team
and if they set the pare for colleges us
they aro setting the pace for High Schools
many will bcthe victories' that will come
to A C C. in the future.

Tuesday night the Hardings put on their
L)ccmn number nt Iberls to a large and
appreciative audience. That this mini
ber is proving to be a succejs is being
demonstrated by tho calls that lhi bod)

as entertainers. This number was ihe
best that has )ct been stoged by the Hur
dings in spile of the handicap of falling
lo have a piano and consequently having
lo make up the program without lo the
aid of much music.
The Harding quartet received a heart)
applause at Ihe end of "Kentucky Ilaba"
-and the interest seemed to be assured lor
the 'evening. Their climax was reached
