Playoff Set for March 4 Pacific Lutheran's m i g ht y Gladiators will attempt to prove that their hst 80-63 win · over the National AAU champion Buchan Bakers was no fluke as the Lutes host the powerful Seattle squad tomorrow (Friday) night at the PLC field house. The recent scheduled tilt (the game VlaS arranged only y\~ithin the last three weeks) will be of much interest to PLC fans and other rabid basketball fans as the Bakers handed the Lutes their only loss ~f the year . . . this at the TAC tourney early in the season 87-75. Friday's game will be the deciding contest of the two team series. Win Conference Meanwhile PLC is resting after compiling the first unbeaten cage season against collegiate teams in the school's history. The Lutes rolled to 12 straight wins in the Evergreen Conference to re pl" at as loop winners, and added 11 other wins in nonleague play for a season mark of 22-0 against college opposition. Also in the thoughts of Coach Marv Harshman and his sque.d is the NAIA playoff which at this time (Feb. 25) was still undecided. PLC has won one berth in the crucial playoff and the other will be the host squad when decided. Gonzaga of Spokane will probably get the other nod. The winner will then go on to Kansas City for the small college national tourney. If the other squad is Gonzaga the meet will be held at Spokane March 4-6. The National event will be held March 11-16. Same Starters Against Buchans Harshman will probably start Nick Kelderman at ce1iter, Jim VanBeek and Chuck Curtis at forwards and Roger Iverson and Jack Sinderson at guards. Expected to see much action for the Bakers are , . Charles hoon, Dean Parsons, R. C. Owens and other former Collegiate stars. Last week the Lutes finished their regular season with a 69GO win over Central as Curtis and Iverson again paced the scoring. Curtis, the Lutes' lead.ing point getter, and Iverson each hit 18 counters. VimBeek Iiad 13 and Sinderson added 10.

chiefs; Frank Kaiser, captain; Ken Hoff and Bert Parrot, lieutenants. Pierce County Fire Protection District No. 9 covers an area of 36 square miles, from Tacoma city limits, along Pioneer way to Puyallup city limits, south as far as Military road and Vickery road. The present roster of volunteer firemen numbers 36, all experienced hard working men who give their time without pay to protect the lives and property of residents of the area. In addition to controlling fires these men are frequently called to assist in. a wide range of accidents and emergencies and in the past have saved a number of lives. The ad'.!;~ion or the new building, plus the acquisition of two fine modern trucks, is most gratifying to the firemen - it means that their work will be even more effective in the future than in the past. It boosts their morale to have these better tools for their volunteer job and they all join in nrging the public to drop in Snnday and visit with them long enough to learn, first first hand, how a volunteer fire station operates.
