Despite a ll the work an d extr a t rouble that is occas ioned by t he Tourna ment, t he hig h calibre of the basketball pla yed and t he sportsma nship of t h e contesting tea ms combine to make t h e event more enjoyable ever y year . T he officials of t he College a nd t he Tourna ment have combined to do t heir best to see t o t h e com for t of the visiting t ea ms and fans . T he s tudent bod y, also, is a nxious tha t you enjoy yo ur stay. If t here is anything about the campus t ha t you do not unders ta nd, a nything t hat a student might be a ble to do for you, ask him-he will be gla d to do his best for you. It is the heartiest wish of the College t ha t your s tay her e, although it must be brief, be as pleasant and enjoyable as it is in our power to make it. Good Luck!

Lay Aside Five Bucks ! Th e College Clu b is a student or ganization, dedicat ed to t he s l udent welfare.

After hanging up a record of ten straight wins, of which eight had been on the home lIoor, the Saints aga in took to the road, this time to meet DeKalb and DePaul. For the month past, the Chicago papers had been filled with the predictions of the chagrined Demons that the Irish were due for a mighty fall when they invaded the Grafty City. St. Viator concentrated, therefore, more upon the DePaul encounter than upon the DeKalb affair. and thereby almost lost a ball game. The Teachers who were encountel'ed first, showed unexpected strength, and the game was forced into an overtime. With the sCOre tied at 28 all as the two squads entered the extra period, DeKalb dropped in a long one to take the lead. 30-28.

The Irish, worn out by the contest of the ..evening before and unable to stand on the unaccustomed slippery surface of the Normal dance lIoor, fought the Red Birds every inch of the way only to lose a 24-15 decision and drop from the Little Nineteen lead. Second Wesleyan Game. With slight hopes of a title before them, the much-chastened Irish visited Bloomington for their second game with Illinois Wesleyan. The ·Irish student body turned out en masse for the affair, and the Titan gym was fill ed about equally with supporters of the two teams. St. Viator came to life for a brief hour of play and again looked like the outfit that had struck terror into the m idst of opposing fives in the early part of the season. The Viator defense proved superior to the Titan ' offense and the Irish emerged victorious by a 30-32 count. End Season at Home. The Irish ended their sea son with a return game with Elmhurst in the Viator gym. The Pirates were no match for the Saints. and the mighty Green Wave completely submerged their craft to the tune of 34-10. Elmhurst scored but two goals from the field in th e entire game, both of which were made in the first half. The victory was the fourteenth of the season for the I ris h and left them with a final Conference rating of twelve victories and three losses. Since I have been threatened by the entire group of misYQgni sts, I can't very well write anything about them this issue. However, I can truthfully say that their percentage is still .00o..

VIATORIAN GETS EXCLUSIVE STORY Bill Gibbons, Captain of Senior League Winners Tells His Secrets to Reporter I mmediately following the Christmas recess, Viator's annua l short pants parade began its 1931 renewal under the persona.] tute lage of Francis Carroll, '31. Vince Mooney's "Huskers" and Joe Hoog's ((Hungry Five" joined in mutual battle to lift the lid and start the ball to rolling. This game ended in a 3-3 tie at the end of the regulation time. In the overtime, the starved team garnered a free toss that decided the gnme. This game characterized the brand of basketball played in the league throughout the year. It was closely contested, rivalry was keen, rough and tumble play, together with flashes of good baskethall. All the games. with a few exceptions, were close. The teams were evenly matc!led and those bringing up in the rear were a constant worry to the leaders at all tim es. Interest R uns Hig h. Two contests were played daily, one at noon and one at rug路ht. Each game found a representative number of spectators in the stands. Each team bad its following among the students. Interest, as a w4ole, was high on the part of the student body a nd the games furnished entertair.ment throughout the dull winter. Upsets Were Frequent. Many of the favorites to win were upset by dark horses a.nd their championship hopes were blasted. Superlor teams went down before the :nspired drive and determination of t heir lesser opponents. This only added to the interest in play and as the season progressed the games began to take on more color. The final spurt toward the champion5hip found stragglers rising up and dowring team:s 路'that held hopes for v1rtory. Bob Delaney and, his crew of HFreshman Nightmares" awoke from their slumber in time to hand the leaders a score that they have not, as yet, fully recovered from. Dark Hor se Triumph ant. If we owned a hat we would take it off to Bill Gibbons and his "Delineators." This team was given lit.tle or no consideration by scribes in December when the race began. They were merely one of the fourteen entries that left the pole at the start. At the finish they were riding the crest of victory. Ca ptain Speaks fo r Team. Mr. Gibbons stated to representatives of t he press that an absent t eammate was a potential factor in the team's success. Mr. Gibbons says, "One of the most potential factors in the team's s uccess was entirely due to the memory of my friend and fon-card, Mr. Poos, who departed from our ranks at the semester. It seemed that when the boys were in the dumps and the going was tough, the mere mention of his name spurred us on to victory. I might add that we had no individual stars. I emphasized team work and I saw t hat the rigorous training I had mapped out for the boys was carried out to a "t." I even smoked in the confines of my study and never in the p1'es~nce of a member of my tea.m. I went to the extreme of cutting numerous eight o'clock classes so that the boys would not see me out at that early hour and think that I was just returning from town. All that my tea,m is or hopes to be they owe to their fond friend and captain. namely

What a season this turned out to be! Last year, Bradley lost three and still took the title. This year, three losses entifles St. Viator to fourth place, following Normal, North Central and Monmouth. North Central won eleven and lost one and still lost the title because State Normal had won twelve and lost one. I Monmouth's lone defeat was suffered ,at the hands of Illinois Wesleyan. l And North Central lost to Millikin \on the Decatur floor- a factor which I,we believe should 1argely discou=lt the game. The Naperville crew, I however, neglected to kill enough giants to enable them to any great consideration against Nonnal's claim. ,St. Viator attempted to kill too many giants. And we'll bet that even the great Jack of Beanstalk fame had his off evenings. State Normal went ahead to follow up their Little Nineteen t itle by winning the Normal school tournament held at Carbondale. This was certainly some season for the Normal Pedagogues.
