The word is derived f r o m a rootword which means "to fail". Anyone who has not reached the ideal or goal f o r which he has striven, is defeated. In the battle of life every one is a FAILURE. We have all been DeFEATED. In the lesser battles of our experiences it is possible to win out. But while many run, only one can possibly receive the prize. The others are defeated. DEFEAT is not an unusual thing It is so prevalent t h a t we hardly notice it. The student with an average of 68 has just as many unexpressed cngratulations poured upon him as the students who graduates with the 'summa cum laude* And yet, he is defeated. They speak of the success of failure. I t cannot be. F o r a d e f e a t is undeniably a d e f e a t If there were an element of success in it, then it would not be d e f e a t The expression is used to soothe the wounds which a defeat makes on the soul. A DEF E A T is a DEFEAT,—black, disgraceful, neyer to be recalled. Defeats are disheartening. The man who, a f t e r many attempts to overcome a deficiency of character, suffers one d e f e a t a f t e r another, walks lonesomely to t h e river's edge and tries t o have everything swallowed up in the greatest d e f e a t of his career,—the D E F E A T of COWARDICE Suicide can never change d e f e a t into victory.

ed the long arms of Mike and the ball would again be in our possession. Only once did Haggles t h e 200 pound center succeed in making a basket. That was the only basket Petoskey got in the second half. The Reserves kept u p their old fight. Eggink went in f o r Lubbers and p u t up a scrappy game against the young mountains of the north. Van Lente came in f o r two more f r e e throws and added another basket f o r good measure. Mike carried the horseshoe f o r t h e evening, ringing up f o r three baskets. Jonkman beat the whistle and put in another tally f o r good measure. From start to finish tl;e game was full of excitement a n d thrills. The 1.200 people t h a t packed the High school Gymnasium were fully convinced t h a t they had seen some basket ball game. Putting up a style of play t h a t completely baffled t h e Legion men our boys had no difficulty in working the ball down the floor. Playing like veterans they played a game that could compete with any played on our own floor this season. Petoskey Legion suffered its first defeat f o r t h e season. Now that this game has been won we have the honor of having defeated every important independent team in the northern part of the state. This certainly is a record t h a t all the Hopeites ought to feel proud of. If you appreciate at all t h e work t h a t the Reserves have done this winter don't l e hesitant about telling thoni about it. They deserve it. W e believe t h a t this is the first time t h a t any college reserve team in the state h a s T e e r i aETe to down all Independent teams. This is very likely the last game they will play this year. The summary of the game is as follows: Hope—19 Petoskey 8 Lubbers F Heemstra Eggink VanLente F Griggs Schuurmansfl C Ruggles Jonkman G Henry

Joldersma....w G De Pree Goals—Schuurmans 3, Van Lente 2, Jonkman 2, Heemstra, Griggs, Ruggles. Free throws—Van Lente 5 out of 6. \'

Notes on the Trip and Game > Playing against a team that outweighed them 20 pounds t o a man t h e Reserves came out of the game without having a single foul called against them. Petoskey certainly has a loyal bunch of basketball fans. Braving a regular blizzard 1200 people came out to see the game. Mike and Bill p u t up a stone wall ^ defense t h a t the Legion was unable t o penetrate. Time and again the ball reached no f u r t h e r than the middle of t h e floor. Van Lente came back into his all-state high school form and played a wonderful floor game. Did you ever notice how Kenney always comes u p smiling. Jonkman, Lubbers and Eggink made the essential elements to complete a p e ^ f e c t working combination. A f t e r having spent a whole day in a country where there is still three feetof snow we could not help but appreciate getting back to good old southern Michigan, It's r a t h e r tough to have to miss parties, but it's all done f o r the sake of the school, Esther. A dollar in the pocket is worth two at home, isn't it Mike? This trip completes a total of 2000 miles t h a t the Reserves have traveled this season. Almost worth while trying out f o r the Second team. The Petoskey victory makes 13 out of 14 games played this season. The only game lost was t o Beithany and that was evened u p when the Reserves defeated them to the t u n e of 15-5. EVERYBODY—NINE RAHS FOR THE BEST RESERVE TEAM IN T H E HISTORY OF T H E SCHOOL. ALL TOGETHER, NOW—YEA, RESERVES!!!
