SI; OLNBT 18 The tiaal touch waa put on tM. foot ball aeaaon of 1919 Ust Mon¬ day afteraoon when Coach MItehall on behalf of the Athletic aasoCia- tlon of tbe H. S. presented nineteen playen with the lettera which thay had earned. The requirement which each player must anawer, to receive such distinction Is that he ahall have On^ERT VALBERT participated In at leaat forty per cent of the games played and ts ready and willing to play a Thanks¬ giving game It one Is scheduled. Fur¬ thermore, in order to play in any game he must carry successfully at least three subjects In his school work. The letter each player received was the H. S. monogram, in school colora ot orange and blue, orange lettera set'on a blue background,, which wtt In tha oval shape of a foot ball tj> ladieate the branch of ath¬ letics in which bf had participated. The ninetean mea who received tha lettan arere: Capt. Oould, Taylor LIndaay, Biaaey, Luak, Wella, Jor¬ dan, Valbert, Maxwell. Frost, Toung, Bnnn, Knight, Smith, Blotter^ Con¬ nell,^ Bennett, Keith and Chambliss. The reeord that theae men made under the earnest efforta of their new coach waa one to be envied by any school. To aee that Coach Mit¬ chell was aattstled it waa only nec¬ essary to see the satlafaction which he ahowed while presenting the let-' tera laat MoiLday attemoon.

Residents ot South Flora thought that King Satan and his crew had got loose last Friday night about 9:00 o'clock. Close Investigation, however, proved that It was some Flora root- era actiag as it they had discovered some "Old Taylor" at a dollar a quart. The raal eause of the distur¬ bance was that Olney's "unsnrpas- slble" live want down Into disgrace before the Flora team. Tickets were at a premium. The world seriea scalpan had nothing on Flora'a spaculatora. Aa high aa 15 FBs paid for the small pastboards and $2.50 and IS.OCwere eommon prices. Tou can Imagine 'how a aar- dtne feels If you wera preaent. .* In the firat haM Flora nearly gave the game away on technical foula, Tbey failed to hold their handa be¬ hind their back when they Jump¬ ed. It they had not aocurad five points on fouls tha aeora would have been >1 to 8, Dua to the outcome o'f the Bridgeport game, Olney look¬ ed tor an eaay victory. Many ot the rooten (or the Orange and Black be¬ lieved that they let Bridgeport beat them on purpose to mislead Olney. if they had ot done so they would have made a grand success. StniweU, Olney's crack player, tailed to show up to expectations on account ot beInK guarded so close by "Doe" 'Young. He securad two of Olney's baakets. Valbert, "Taylpr and Dnft slipped away trom the young giants trom Olney and dropped them Into the basket with a ragularlty that was pleasing. Lusk played an excellent guarding game, and made excellent passes. Dutt did not make very many tree throws. Wells, tha man who doea this Is out yet. His aubatitute Valbert, is fast devaloplng Into a real basket bail playerf'TffeTeafBS Olaey play¬ era a merry chase Friday. Flora's team work naver showed up better. The Individual work ao characteristic, of them before was forgotten In this game. The soora at tha end ot the flrat halt waa IS to It In Flora's tavor. It still wasn't anybody's game. In the tint minute of play ot the second halt Olney scored the only point secured In the halt! It waa a foul on Taylor. Sbe failed to "come baek" as she is noted for doing and got beat good. - Can toot bali men play clean bas¬ ket ball? They can. We have watched some of the experiments with this team before but after this one last Friday night we can all draw the conclusion. "This man Dale knowa some basket ball." The playera wera going like demons all the time and the coach's mind, was going taatar than that. To pick the best player that alght would be some Job. Every man play¬ ed hla best and Olney did tha-aame. Olnay boasted she would play her second team. She did, but oaly be¬ cauae her firat team men wera play- ad t^ a flnlah and as the If alt says, "thaae men neither helped nor hin¬ dered the game." Saturday night Centralia beat them again, SS to 19. Thia second'defeat crushed tham ut¬ terly. The SSrd Centralia playa - hera. They are a better con4itloned team than Olney and play bettar basket ball. If you want to aaa a good game, do not mias thia one. Oood "pep" trom community and aehool, helpa.
