A .** , MARgHALLTOWNlplNVADE TROJAN~COURT SPORT SIDELIGHTS . Tne Vagabonds played the open- der the tight guarding of Prince Zepho and Sol Butler, former George- ^» u °\ verslt y Athlete and United States Olympic champion for several years. The Giants were leading 23 to 4 when the quarter ended. Play Fast Game. ; Starting with the first whistle the Giants worked into a fast game that developed a lightning-like passing attack and a neat breaking offense evolving from the jack-rabbit tactics of Ramsey at forward. Ramsey s jumping pass to Hall or Rob- mson is an exhibition in itself Martinsen, former all-state selection of Minnesota and St. Olaf star was the only member of the Vagabond team that could get sola" against the Negro.five in the open" Coming in fresh for the second , period, the Canvas company cut i down the power of the Giants and v held them' 'with a score of 12 to 9 for the period. The total at the half left the Giants leading 35 to 13. The work of "Ced" Connelly, one of the best centers in this section of the country, was outstanding during thp. period. Trio Works Well. The Vagabonds again took the floor against the Giants for the third period and again Hall, Robin, son and Ramsey slipped in the two- point counters to bring the total score up to 57 to 20 in favor of the Gilkerson five. The second whack at the Giants enabled the Vagabonds to extract a more favorable ; score by a 22 to 7 count, but even then as Sol Butler said--"They're walkin' all over our toes. Can't they pick up their feet?" In the final quarter, the Gianta took another spurt for the bettcv and this time played the Tent Mak- · ers for a 16 to 10 count to give the traveling aggregation a total scar* of 73 to 30 for the game. By agreement of the captains before the game started, five fouls were to be allowed on a player. Sol Butler took five in this quarter in order to give Bobbie Anderson a little workout. The quarters were for 15 minutes each. Hall Is High Man. Hall of the Giants was high man for the evening physically and otherwise. This giant, which dwarfed "Ced" Connelly, totaled 12 field goals and seven gift shots during the game. Robinson received runnerup honors with nine field goals and two free throws. Prince Zepho and "Ced" Connelly tied scoring honors for third place with five field goals and one free shot apiece. A challenge to meet the Globe- Trotters on the Mason City court was given by the Giants after the game.

Dryden, who worked on Chicago San Francisco, and New York papers, up until about 15 years ago, became famous for the unique manner in which he reported baseball games. He always built his stories around an incident which struck him as humorous. He was nationally recognized as one who could pick a nickname fo- a baseball player and make it stick, and make the baseball players like him. He was the first to call Franit Chance, late manager of the famous Cub team of 1906, the "peerless leader." He was the first to call a baseball park a "ball yard." He hung the name "Big Moose" on Ed Walah, the famous White Sox pitcher, and once wrote of Walsh as "the only man in the worfd who could strut standing still." Barred From Park. Dryden regarded baseball as a huge joke, and always wrote humorously of the games. While em ployed in New York 25 or 30 yearns ago the late John T. Brush, the'- owner of the New York Giants, tool exception to the facetious way in which Dryden described a ba: g-ame, and had him barred from the ball park. That made no difference to Dryden. He climbed a tall tele graph pole outside the park an' proceeded to report the games day after day while perched atop one of the cross bars. Finally Brush relented and Dryden was later admitted to the park. Dryden was one of ; unique characters of the newsp.-i^.r world. Until a few years before illness forced him into retirement, he always wrote his copy in longhand. Then when he decided to use thi typewriter, he laboriously began to peck out his story with two fingers. When he finished his story he would throw it over to the sports editor saying, "here's another piece about those silly eggs." Worked by Clock. Dryden never married and died in the arms of his faithful sister who had cared for him for years. While a paralytic ho did everything by the tick of the clock. He ate at a certain time, went to bed at a certain time, took a drink of water flt a certain time, a chew of tobacco at a certain time. He died by the monotonous tick of the clock. He sat all day long ir. a big, easy chair, down in his cottage in Ocean Springs. The big clock was always In front of him MONROE DEFEATS MADISON 18-16 Teams Play Overtime Game in Junior High Cage League. Madison lost a hard game of basketball to Monroe at Monroe on Wednesday.
