Two field goals tossed through the south net in the last minute of the extra period decided the contest in 1 favor of Coach Potts' proteges. The game was 'a hard fought one, with Northeast on the short end most of the time, but hanging on. like bull dogs. The first half ended 17 to 17, IJ. and W. leading, in the second half the score was tied four times, the period ending with the teams deadlocked at 21 - 21. D. and W. took the lead attain in the extra stanza on a foul toss, but Sherman and Peiffer found the ring for two pointers when the end of the game was but seconds away and the1 northeastern school took the city title and cup.' Kim "and Madison tallied eight field goals to three for Tenth and Green and was able to outpoint the lattcr's e - oorl foul shootine - j winning 19 to 14. Clouscr was the leading scorer of the game, getting four twin pointers. The Armory was crowded for the cruHid - battle, Northeast High sending a strong and powerful lunged delegation of rooters that kept things lively throughout the evening. Two great splashes of vivid yellow indicated the presence of two bodies of northeast girls, one group in the west balcony ami the other almost beneath. Kvery point scored by the boys from Twelfth and Perry was the signal for a wila waving of yellow .scarfs, the whole looking like a colorful carnival. While the teams rested for the extra period the fans kept all citizens within four blocks' awake 'by their yelling. Spectators at one end of the hall could see the cheer leaders at the other end waving their hands and shouting madly through their megaphones, but there was no chance of hearing them. Lots of junior high students will know more about field goals, dribbling and foul shooting today than their lessons. Scoop Oraeff was the leader of the D and W. team, but his excellent work was offset by the teamwork of the winners. , - The scores: v Douglass & Weiser Field Foul Goals Goals Pts.

And, while dispatches emphasize the schedule fight, 'the combat over the draft surely was no Mah Jong game. Nothing much has been published concerning the lineup on the draft. The league heads would have everyone believe that little matter of the Ints relations with the majors was settled with little difficulty. That seems very unlikely.: Behind the closed doors that barred the way for inquisitive outsiders, a pitched battle mast have been fought, with a group of men who wanted the draft through in spite of the efforts stand alone. A few tales have leaked out. of six clubs against the resumption favoring it. But it is - said that one or two of the clubs went through internal strife before their votes were decided upon.

Although it is his first season and despite the fact that he is only IS years of age, Cunningham is well in the van among the individual scorers. What makes his achievement all the more remarkable is that he has played in fewer games than some of his rivals' and is playing in a new position. As the star player on the'Mt.

Playing in the national tournament at Chicago in 102L he wras hailed as an All - American in - terscholastic player. Following the close of the 1923 football season, in which he won his "O" as an end on Ohio State's eleven, Cunningham turned out for basketball and immediately made good at center.
