He has so many good players of equal ability that selection of the first team is going to be a puzzler. Dan Warrln'gton, Charles "Peck" Hardin, James 'Bab" Roberts, Russell Mosley, 'Bill Godwin, Homer Besharse, Jack Jenkins and Hugh Harbert nre holdovers fi'om the 1937 crew and must be considered. Then there Is Cnri Hughes, who appears able to make any Minn's high school basketball team, lefthanded Tommy Watrinelon, Alvln Justice, P. T. Ifaney, Johnson Elixckwell, Harry Maxwell, Billy Meharg, Herb Childs, all up and coining youngsters, are in the thick of tho fight. They are developing So fast Hint It Is not at nil unlikely that some will crash the regular portals. At any rate all stand nn excellent chance to see plenty of action.' The fact that Tommy Warrlngton and Haney will not be eligible until after mid-term exams- relieves the situation some .but not much. Coach Dllcly has been working two units In practice sessions and has not fully decided which will get the starling call. Group No. 1, tentatively described ns the regulars, is composed of D. Warrington and Mosley, forwards, Godwin, center, Mosley anil Hughes, guards. Team No. 2 includes T. Warrington nnd Justice, forwards; Jenkins, center, Ilarbert and Besharso, with the others alternating.- Only nine games have been scheduled so far, but three more games are expected to be added later.

They could count upon his unswerving honesty. His name upon a map made it an authoritative document. A good name is no less important today. As you read the advertisements in this newspaper, you see the names of manufacturers and merchants who have builded their business success upon honest products. The very fact that they advertise speaks for their integrity. The store that stays in business has not only to get customers but to keep them year after year. Your good-will is worth too much to be endangered by inferior, unsatisfactory goods. Read the advertisements regularly. They will save you minutes and money. They serve as maps of good merchandise—signed with names which, like the name of Washington, have been tested by many and found completely trustworthy. V,
