In speaking of the B tourney Kensett could be termed the "hard luck" team. Having eliminated trie strongest teams in its bracket, Kensett has been defeated in the finals for two years straight. Last year Sheffield was the nemesis. Chuck Van Koten, stellar Drake athlete, played in the finals of the sectional tournament here several years ago, He-played on the Hansell team which, was runnerup in the B class. The high school cage team has a capable manager in Dick Currie. (To be sung to the tune of on the RoaO^to Mandalay): "On the road to Sioux City-ay! Where the Mohawks go to play, That is where we'd like to be right now, On the road to Sioux Cit-ay!"

He also ays the Webster City cagers have mproved approximately .50 per cent ince the first game at Mason City. The members of the high school cage team are evidently popular. "Bud" Suter, fonvard, was elected president of tne junior class and "Webb" Parrott, guard, was elected president of the senior class. Whether the Trojans conclude the schedule with more games won than Jost will be seen next ..week. The Trojans have failed to live up to pre-season expectations. A former Mohawk athlete who is making good in college is Johnnie Moen, who played regular an the Iowa State grid team in his sophomore year last season. We are not sure wnether that is a distinction after taking a glance at Iowa State's record. WIG AND MASK CLUB WILL BUY NEW STAGE SET Junior College Organization Authorizes Presentation of $58 to Board. The Junior dollege Wig and ilask club has authorized the presentation of $58 to the board of education thru Principal James Rae for the purchase of a new set for the high school stage. The money was earned by the'oc- ganization thru a benefit assembly held several weeks ago and was intended to defray the expenses of u participation in a contest at Iowa City next month. The club voted to send 12 members of the cast of "Ice Bound" to present an act of the play in the one act play contest in which Mason City has never been represented. It was discovered, however, that more than six. players could nut compete so the plans were aban doned.

With both returning to the team next year, Mohawk cage fans can look forward to another season. The Monawks should wade thru their sectional tournament opposition in March without any trouble. None of the other class A teams entered play the brand of basketball the locals are used to. Garner is regarded as the "dark horse" ot the tournament, for nothing is known of the team, except that it is rather strong. The dope bucket will take a mighty fall if the Monawks fail to come thru. Suter and Cordle ,are two of the fastest forwards in the state. Altho the pair are small, as high school HUGH DAVEY SON GENERAL CONTRACTORS AND BUILDERS Phone 874 15 2nd St. S. W. It is strange that the basketball thriller on the high school floor so far this season is not a local high school game. If asked, the Kensett- Mitchell game in the B tournament wins the distinction. The game was mainly a contest between two star6, Lenoch of Mitchell and Boyette oT Kensett, both All-Tournament men* Kensett squeezed out a two point victory.

IMAGINARY VISIT TO SHAKESPEARE HOME IS TAKEN Pictures and Talks Used to Present Ideas to Students. Imaginary ^visits to Stratford, England, were made last week by the tenth year English classes who are studying "Macbeth" with Miss Elizabeth Graves. The large bulletin board .covered with various pictures of the birth place, the winding Avon, the American fountain, both exterior and interior views of Holy Trinity church, different views of Anne Hathaway's cottage at Shottery and many others did its part to furnish the thotful, observing student with worthwhile material for oral composition. Besides gleanings from the bulletin board the students resorted to two volumes entitled "Shakespearc'.s Town and Times" and "Idyllic Avon" as well as various other sources for hints on the shrines of Stratford and vicinity. Teachers Glvo Talks. Confirmation of the merits of such study was biot home to the students in talks given by two teachers--travelers in the high school faculty, the Misses Kllen Smith and Judith Overby. These women emphasized to the student that one gets from travel in the British Isles and the continent in proportion to the stuciy one has made before taking the trip. Keenest of interest xvns manifested by Miss Graves' first period class Friday morning when Ralph Dunlop, one of the class, took his 33 classmates by bus with him ovei the .streets of Stratford, the two iniJea journey from Stratford to Shottery, and thru the rooms of Ann's cottage ,and the dramatist's birthplace. Ralph and his mother toured England the past summer. Deserlbo Entrance. Both h'e am/ miss Overby made a lasting impression in the detailed description of the long approach of the avenue of trees leading to the entrance to Holy Trinity church and to the tombs of William Shakespeare and his -wife. Of the collection of pictures on Miss Graves' bulletin board the one that has merited the closest scrutiny and commendation was the pen drawing of Shakespeare's boyhood home made by Ruth Nebergall, former student 20 years ago in th$ old red brick building on Stati street.
