V Warriors By W. A. ODLM The Warriors hit a cold streak in the last couple of minutes against Howells, and lost a 41-37 game. In the last 30 seconds with llowells leading 39-37, the War-Tiors had five straight shots at the bucket within range, but nothing happened. Howells then hustled the ball to the other end of the court and sunk a controversial counter just as the buzzer buzzed. The official ruled it good and that was it. The Warriors played pretty good ball most of the way, and held 6 5" Wragge and Holiday Dinner Served Dec. 20 This one made it six in a row so far this season for Howells, and that is certainly getting launched on a Grade A season.

Dworak Bill Gainey turned in anoiner good game and was rebounding all over the place in addition to caging 11 points. Dave Kracl had 13 to lead, and also turned in some fine rebounding. However, the Howells kids were a bit too good on swishing them and out-scored Schuyer, 18-13, on field goals. For Howells, Wragge was guarding the bucket and several times stuffed short shots right back down the throats of the shorter Warriors. Molacek had 12 points and Hiltz, who quarter-backed the Bobcats, tossed in seven in addition to a flashy floor game. Besf wishes to our friends! May it be a very Happy New Year! Schuyler Boot Shop Howells Schuyler . Next game for Schuyler comes up Friday, Jan. 4, when David City will be here for two games. The Schuyler Reserves pulled away from the Howells second team In the last half and coasted to an easy 46-31 win. It was a horse race the first half, all tied up at 16 apiece. Then the young Warriors shaded the Howells kids, 16-11, in the third period to take a five point lead.

SUN Page 8 December 27, 1956 Thursday youngsters poured it on 13-3 in the final canto to win going away. Larry Armstrong led Schuyler' with his best output of the year . He racked up 14 and Larry Trofholz put down 11. For Howells, Tuma notched 13, and Hozeman hit for 10. This wound up the Reserve pre-holiday card, and the kids are hitting 1000. They have racked up North Bend, St. Bon, Concordia and Howells in order I for a salty start. 1 2 3 4 F Howells Res. . 4 13 11 3 31 Schuyler Res. .. 8 9 16 13 46 The high school squads and the junior high squads are gameless until after the first of the year. The high school squad was to begin workouts Wesdnesday of this week with a couple of hours after supper each night. They meet David City, Friday, Jan. 4, here, and then go to Columbus, Saturday, Jan. 5, to tackle Hulse-bus & Co., which in our book, will be quite a test. To date the Discoverers havent been a ball of fire, but still believe that they will be a tough outfit before the campaign gets much older. Although the Warriors have floundered a bit in their first four tussles, we feel quite sure they will smother David City. The Davids are winless to date and dont appear to have any great potential, having taken some terrific pastings in their early season tests. Junior high squads will work two days of vacation this coming Saturday and Monday at 2 p. m. Their first struggle after school opens will be with St. Bon grade and freshmen on Monday, the 7th, at 6:30 p. m. Both Graders and Freshmen have won three without a setback, and are anxious to keep the win string intact. Dope The Blue Eagles were hotter than pistols last week-end and won three in two days. Saturday night they annihilated a Bellwood team and then took out Columbus in the second part of a doubleheader. Sunday afternoon they took out Fremont in a barnburner. Behind 41-27 at the half, the Eagles warmed up and took an 80-76 decision. Fred Longacre tossed in 36 for the Eagles and Morehouse caged 21 for Fremont. Seeing action for the Schuyler crew were Long-acre, Jim Flynn, Hans Arps, Red Best, Keith Bailey, Leroy Foust, Mouse Flynn, George Vittera and Bill Balak . . . Fred Longacres Uehling high school squad is riding high, wide and handsome. Their latest conquest, and a sweet one, was over their bigger and bitterest rivals, Oakland, by four points. That makes five out of six for Uehling . . . What did you think of Dal Wards Colorado coach scathing remarks about Nebraskas Orange Bowl game against Duke? He claimed that Nebraskas club was strictly no good to start with. But it was the same ball club that but ran the Buffalos off their own ball park, 20-6 . . . The big Bowl Day is just around the comer, and there will be some dandies to see and hear. We like Colorado over Clemson in the Orange fracas, but we could be wrong here. Clemson has a tough running game and Colorados defense isnt the best, but we believe that John The Beast Bayuk cam single wing the Clemsons out of business. We also believe the Baylor-Tennessee game at the Sugar Bowl will be .the top struggle and that Baylor will bounce the Vols. At Pasadena we figure Iowa to cop, and by more than the one point advantage they had during the season. Maybe by two TDs if they havent spent too much time at the Moulin Rouge and the studios. At the Gator Bowl we like Pitt over Georgia Tech main' ly on size and strength and at the Cotton Bowl we like Syracuse and their All American back Jim Brown, over Texas Christian Schuyler has a newcomer on next years football schedule. South Sioux City, a perennially tough customer, will take the place of St. Pats of Fremont, on the Warrior card, and will be here for the second game . . . Kansas U is still on top of the National ratings due to Wilt The Stilts fabulous heicopter shot. One opposing coach has come up with the best defense for Chamberlain that we have heard. He suggests that two players should be assigned the job of holding Chamberlains arms ... To date we haven't noticed any change in basketball by the insertion of the 12 foot keyhole lane. The tall boys still get the rebounds, but the giving of the inside positions to defensive men has possibly cut down the scoring a bit as we see it. j Hladky Nitehawks KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS SCHEDULE Wednesday, Jan. 2, 7 p. m.
