Beach (79). for teams. 18 Hammond, Another Good Man Gone! UP Ace Hands Cubs the Curse; Picks Madison in Lousy Verse By KURT FKKUDEJfTJIAI, UP Sports Writer Indianapolis. Feb. 14-- (UP)-- They j are highly-regarded among 1 five elite of Indiana's high, school C a l i t basketball powers and a perennial for their first state title and after last year's close shave hope to\go all the way this year. Gone are the brilliant Dec Monroe and his forward partner, Ed Orrill, but Eddy has four seasoned state tourney title contender. They never quite made it but are in there trying for the pot o* gold every vea.r. We give you the:,, Madison Cubs, the United Press ^ title choice to haul down the flagl'c;,,, in the 40th annual Hoosier wood cxti-avaganzii. Tho Cubs count as one of most basketball-conscious outfits in the state and come from the Ohio river district 'usually studded w i t h gifted teams. COACH RAV EDDY, the soft- veterans back, led by six-foot-four Spence Schnaitter, one of the best pivotmen in the state. SCHNA1XTER BXCEIS under boards and has a f i n e jump, too. Ted Server and junior i Weber are Eddy's forwards, Ed Cheat ham and Don Mc- 'Caulcy are the backcourt players, the Schnaitter, Server and Cheatham provuic the Cubs with a scoring punch second to none. This line-up can go the route. Eddy does very little substituting, carrying only nine men on the var- spoken Purdue alumnus, comes up| s jt y : One handicap is their lack a powerhouse every spring, ] o f height. But as Jasper proved and this year's edition is no less b n t l p o t e n t than those of last year and a g season. a the 1918. Last year's club almost made It. By-passed by most "experts," they cut down one tourney foe after another, fighting t h e i r way to the grand finale at the Butler field- house. But a never-say-die bunch of Jasper Wildcats ended that t i t l e dream, G2 to 61, despite Dee Monroe's record 36 points. The year before the Cubs were our title choice, too, but again they lost out. That time n i p p e d last year and other champions have in the past, "height isn't everything." To date, the Cubs have won 15 games and lost two. They were upended at Mitchell, 40 to 31, and lost a one-point verdict ai: Vin- cenneu, 52 to 51. They can pocket another Southeastern conference championship by beating Lawrence- hurg Friday. The tourney trail takes Madison from theii- Shclbyville the In- own sectional to regional a.nd the dianapolis .semi-finals. They aren't tall--but they're it was Anderson wh'ch Eddy's boys in the .sprr.i-fina.ls, 30 ' n i f t y . to 38. i On to the "state" tbcy strive -- in And back in 1941 they b a t l l e U l ' O O : t h e i r way t o the f only to lose to Washington's Hatch- V A L E N T I N E are still trying VALENTINES AT CLAIR'S,
