THE UNIVERSITY DEFEATS
On Saturday evening, January 2f,
the University basket ball team
defeated tho city Y.M.C.A. team
in the most exciting game of the sea
son. Captain Koehler and li is able
supporters played with a vim and
energy characteristic of professionals.
The first half was decidedly in the
Y.MC.A.'s favor, resulting in trie
score of 17-7. With renewed deter
mination the defenders of the scarlet
and cream began to even up the score
in tho seconn half. Corfcelyou and
Ilagenslck dm commendable work
as forwards while Koehler and Ray
mond as guards spoiled many antici
pated goals for the visitors. Pills
hury at center, found a lively oppo
nent in Hancock but b foro the game
elided had shown him equally as
good opposition. Wilber Andreson, a
former player on tho team played Tor
ward for the Y.M.C.A. in a manner
which proved him to bo worthy of
the position, yet with Koehler as his
guard, the number of successful goals
were few. The final score was :12-."I0.
After tho game had boen ended, a
few of the Y.M.C.A. enthusiasts
attempted to claim tho game by as
serting that the official scorer CM.
Beard, had nob credited Andreson
with enough goals in the second hair.
Referee Coat?, who is physical trainer
for the Y.M.C. A.'s, was parsirided
to tako tho side of tho visitors and
declared tho game for tho Y.M.C.A.
The universal decision of the audi
ence was in favr of the University,
despito the feeble attempts of the
Y.M.C.A. to change the result.
The university team has always played
honest basket bail and desires to
meet players of its kind.
During intermission a game was
nlayed between the second University
team and tho second Y.M.C.A.
team, in which tho former again
triumphed by the score of 40-9.
Thomas at forward, Ferguson, cen
ter ai.d Elliot as guard did excellent
work on the University team.

THE JUNIOR TOM TOM.

Tom on Saturday night at the Alpha
Theta Chi house. Owing to some
unexplainable reason tho attendance
did not come up to what was expect
ed but those who went wero well re
paid. Owing to tho fact that last

those present wero resolved into a com
mitteo of the whole to discuss plans

the rest of the class who took so
little class interest as to refuse to at
tend anything which was for (too pur
pose or arousing enthusiasm In tho
class and university and to avail them
selves of the opportunity of becoming
acquainted with tho rest of tho class.
Toasts wero proposed to tho "Junior
Girls," the " University,!' tho
