Sunday, Sunday, Wildcats Win From Facility Oldsters Prove Competitive Threat In Hoop Series Ukiah faculty mpmbers and the Wildcat "A" and "B" teams, the long and the short and the tall, went at their basketball competition with wild abandon and enthusiastic fans cheering as the badly winded teachers dropped the main event to the "A's" 32 to 24 and won 37 to 21 from the."B's" Wednesday night. Exhibiting a real scoring thrust and a floor game that creaked in the passing and rebound department, the pedagogues pulled themselves together often enough to pot a number of set shots with surprising accuracy, winning from the "B's" 37 to 21. Murphy, the B team mentor during the regular season, rolled up 9 points against his charges to -win the scoring honors, closely followed by Simpson and Dietterle with 7 and 6 markers respectively. Busch led the "B's" with 8 points. Burning up the maple for the 'teaches' in a fast floor ganie was W. Tulley, popular high school social science mentor, who is probably nursing a variety of floor burns as a result of the Wednesday engagement. Chief source of entertainment tor the fans were the extremes in physical build displayed by the hoop talent. Coach Bill Piedmont moved his 200-odd pounds of physique sedately through several quarters of each contest. Representing the diminutive department on the court was lightning-fast Piffero, who drew a big share of the free throws for the Wildcat "A's", being fouled continually by several of the less agile faculty oldsters. The teachers' triumph in the preliminary was short-lived, as the Wildcat "A's" proceeded to trim them down after they weakened visibly while the main event was only a few minutes old. Simpson, Oaks and Murphy shared the scoring laurels for the faculty in the final event, with Lolonis leading the "A's" with 8 counters.
