basketball season. i (The! gamttn last
night iwith' Denton the '.ono tonight
with thclsamo team and J tho games
with E. T. 3: T. C tomorrow night
and tho I next aro tho '-final stones
composing tho Ihonunicntfor thf 1030
season. And all in all theihonunient
is not in tho least shabby although
not as' imposing" and grandiose as it
might be. -Butin our humble way
wo are .'satisfied with it and will
strive to make it just njittlo bit
moro elegant the next season. J
For tho first time in four years the
Cats took Daniel 'Baker's measure In
a basketball game on an Abilene
court last Friday night Teamwork
was rather loose on both sides but
that fact didno.tJ$ecp the gamo from
being tighht ChevesT-Hendrick and
Pippen again exercised thaf"fcsccellent
coordination of eye and hand
dropping them in the basket at vari
ous and assorted distances.
The second gamo on Saturday night
ended in dofeat for tho Cats. The
Cats were off and no mistake; plenty
of fouls and plenty of crip shots
missed wero irrefutable evidences of
the fact as was tho final score.
Things are looking lino and no
foolln' for some real tennis to bo
played by the addicts in the near
future. Somo concrete courts have
been arranged for these courts to bo
built just cast of the boys dormitory
and south of the Chcm lab; the
ground is level and hard providing a
good foundation for tho liquid stone
the location is ideal tho .direction
right and there's a good breakfast
in every houso in tho land not a man
woman or child sick anywhere and
everybody's happy. Hot tennis on the
half shell for two.
Although forced to use a snow plow
(rotary) some days to keep a path
cleared for tho tracksters to follow
Coach Weems is equal to uny emerg
ency and wo see them going around
just tho same. Now tho snow plow
is not used to throw the snow to one
AlHbHor there is very little of that
commodity lying looso just now but

that- the whole Sahara desert has
