" A/.usa was Coviria's antagonist in all of the games. The first and second basketbal.' teams played alternate halves and furnished good exhibitions. The local boys were somewhat outclassed, however, and the | final scores wero, first team uarne, 44 to i5, second team game, '12 to 10, in favor of Azuna. i It was football that the crowd wanted, however, and when the eleven Aziiba huskies came on the Held, closely followed by the much lighter high school team, the ciowd ven'ed their enthusiasm by prolonged cheering, and only wondered by how liirj^e a .score the local team uould ha snowed under. But when Heed ran ;'ij \ards for a touchdown and kicked a difficult gnal, thun nutting Covina ahead, the fans look notice.
