Basketball KEAGY CORNER WINS FIRST TITLE SERIES , i Great Comeback of Casey Club Lacks Just One Goal to Turn Tide of Battle; Score 16-15 Houth Siders Bun Away in First Tfi-o Periods; Then Contest Tightens Up. GOOD CROWD IS PRESENT The ftnt leg of the city baeketball title waa annexed by the Keagy Corner basketball team In tho opening of a series with the Casej Chib at the State Armory last night when Fkrto made the deckling point by registering a foul goal with less than 20 seconds of play remaining. The re- eult was 1R-15. The two local quintets battled before the best crowd of the season and traveled at a terrific pace--in fact, too fast to plaj- the beet game either of them ie eapufcle of showing. Over-anxiousnwe was apparent In every period, w ith each club missing numerous "dead" shots under the basket. On the other hand the spectators would be electrified by eome brilliant effort which would either register or come "eo cloeo." LaRue was again promiuent in the Keagy Corner scoring, coming ·through juet when the points would be needed. Several times his shote (sent the ball rolling around and around the hoop, only to have it fall j away, and in those few eeconde the j rooters sat breithless. Guynn'e presence was effective, especially in breaking up the Casey offensive He wne always there to take the ball after a Casey shot and start a Corner attack. Both teams were keyed up to an intense- pitch which communicated itself to the crowd and the Armory wae a bedlam of cheers. Too many substitutions seemed to ·vvoak^n first one and then tio other quintet, the new fac-o'entering the contest about the time either combination got to working right. Phillips broko the Ice for the Caspys and then Immediately missed a foul effort. McCle.iry aleo failed at the free line and Floto registered hie *" becond freo lino shot after blowing the first. Both King and Shilling passed up easy shots under the hoop ami then the littler fell short when he tried from the foul line. Guynn'e *hot hit tho inside rim on the basket and the ball wont high into the air. It came down straight, plunking through the net. Phillips score-1 again, taking the , ball from a pass out of bounds and Floto registered from the foul lino. LaRue boosted one backwards ovor his head as. hr passed under the basket and scored Tho quarter closed. In the second period the Keagy outfit literally ran away from the Caseya. The Irifeh quintet was outfought and outplayed in every department. It| was impossible to penetrate tho South j Side defense and long shots went wild. I At the close of the second quarter the score was 12-5, -with the Caseye trailing, an! everyone conced-el the challengers would romp homo to a win. Opening the eeoonrl half, however, the Ca«/eyi found themselves anl the tables were turned. The Keagys were completely stopped. The club couldn't even get the ball in from the free line and meantime the Irish organization was creeping close. The score of 12-5 woe steadily evened up Lafayette's Ace and Next Year's Captain Sergeant, 145-poand wrestling ace of Lafayette College.

The Corner club had not added a single counter. The fourth quarter opened with Bergln scoring from the free line. It waa the first point th« Keagys had annexed in the la't half. Phillips brought down the house when he tipped the ball through the net from a toss-up and tied the score. LaRue dashed up the center of the floor, took the Up from a toss-up ami turned it into a goal putting the Keagys in front, 11-13, Palovchalk immediately scored .tgain from a pas« out of bounds and the count wa« tied, 15-15. Strublo miseed an effort from the free line. Then Flolo dribbled up the middle of the floor and was stopped by a trio of Caeey defenders, who bore him to the lloor. Ho was given two free ehote. At the first attempt the ball bounced away l'iom the hoop and on the second it ts-cnt through. A short scrimmage attor the toss-up at center and the cont st was ended.

The year 192D saw approximately 300,000 boys participating 1 in the program and ha« s«t a high standard for subsequent yers. "Co5peratlng with th* American Legion in the program are the National and American leagues of. professional baseball. From these two leagues comes the flnan :ial support which makes possible tl e holding of the regional and sectional tournaments and the Junior world series. Splendid cooperation ha t been re- ceivsd. from minor bast ball lengtuw in the Legion baseball activities in their territories. Many organization* and indfivldnals outside of base/ball have also given their support to the movement and the Legion has In ' a way formed a rallying ground for the men who believe in bas-yball and In boys. "Tournaments to cecide ntafe championships will be h :ld in every state. Tho state champion teame will meet in 12 regional tour (laments, six in the Bast and six in the West, during August, and the regional winners in the East and West will clash iii two sectional tourneys to decide the eastern and weetern champ ons.

"All tournaments to decide state champions will be under ihe direction of the fitate organization of the Legion, while tho Legions National Americanlsjn Commission will have charge of tho regional and sectional tournaments and the junior world series. The cities in which the tournaments will be held will be selected on a basis of accessibility, playing grounds and accommodations for the visiting teame."
