GILBERT'S BUNCH BLACK AND GOLD WILL STACK UP AGAINST SWEETSER FIRST, WHILE MARION MEETS HARTFORD CITY. Interest now centers in the coming district tournament at Marion Friday and Saturday. In the first game, according to the drawing, the Fair-mount high school team will play the Sweetser team. That will be at 11 o'clock Friday morning. Sweetser will undoubtedly put up a battle but the locals should carry off the honors in this contest and be ready for a slash at either Marion or Hartford City at 9 o'clock Saturday morning. Some fans predict that Hartford City will be the opponents for this contest while most of the fans think that the Marion team will come through safely in the first contest and then stack up against the Black and Gold, j But the first game Saturday morning will be one of the big games of the coming tournament. Everyone will rrant that and many are predicting that right there is where Marion will get upset. At least Fairmount high school has a good fighting chance. Taking the dope: Fairmount high recently beat Muncte on the Muncie floor. Last Wednesday Mtmcie beat S.ummitville on the Summitville floor j 36 to 20. Last Friday Summitville administered a 29 to 21 drubbing to the egotistical Marion crew. That "done" would seem to rive the Fair- mount team quite an edge on the relied upon. Besides Marion in the coming contest will be playing on its own nve acre lot ana win inus nae a AvA(h advantage But that came trill K rtn-. ficrfct Fairmount will cop the'honors if Fairmount speed, team work and spirit can do it.
