FOCIIT Telegraph Sports Editor In the first five minutes of play, a red-hot band of Edwardsville Tigers burned the nets at Alton High gym Friday night to rack up a fast 13-1 lead over the host Redbirds in a Southwestern Conference game that found the Tigers needing the margin before the evening was over as the Birds came back in the final period to pull to within four points of the Tigers before dropping the decision by a 60-56 count. Before the first quarter was over, the Birds had proved that they were not out of the game yet as they ended the first'period on the short end of a 20-14 count. The 20 point first quarter was the big one for the Tigers, but they counted for 10 markers in the second stanza to hold a 10 point halftime margin, '30-23. Both teams did more scoring after the rest period, but the Tigers pulled to a 12 point edge by hitting for 15 markers to take a 45-33 margin. Then in the last period, the Tigers ran the score up to 60-49, but then the Birds hit for seven straight points before the final two minutes elapsed to pull to within four points, holding the Tigers scoreless. The Tigers owed much of the credit for the victory to the free throw line, where the Edwardsville shooters counted 20 points in 25 tries. The Birds, on the other hand, had 27 shots from the charity stripe and counted on only 10 of them. But the fouls hurt the Tigers also as late in the game, three of their regulars, Mike Newell, Jack Butler, and Roy Warning, left the game after committing five personals. Two of the Birds, however, Joined them on the sidelines as Karl Hoagland and Rod Connor breached the rules too often. The potent Tiger offense had three men scoring more than 10 points, but the high scorer of the game was Alton's Bob Kuhn, wh» racked up 24 points, 14 of them in the hectic last quarter. Next to Kuhn in game scoring was Jack Enloe, the Tiger rebounder and pivotman deluxe. He hit for 15 markers, 12 of them in the hot first period. George Metcalf had 14 Tiger points and Jack Butler had 12. Tommy Holmes had 12 for the Redbirds, to rank next to Kuhn in Alton scoring. Two boys who show only slightly in the scoring column, however, played a big hand in the good showing the Birds made against the Tigers. They are Randolph Smith and Roscoe Franklin. The two were inserted in the first period when the Birds trailed dismally and saw considerable action. Although Smith made only two points and Franklin only one, the boys put speed into the Alton fast break and agressiveness into ..the guarding and rebounding departments. They also were the objects of several of the fouls that eventually deprived Coach Joe Lucco of three of his first string Tigers. The Edwardsville boys found the fast moving Franklin and Smith hard to guard without fouling. After moving up in the first period to a 20-14 score, the Birds continued to hang on in the second period although never ahead throughout the game and, In the second quarter, never able to get closer than five points. Once they came to a 21-16 score shortly after the quarter started. But the Tigers ra nthe count to 30-21 before Hoagland hit a set shot for Alton just before the half ended to narrow the margin to seven points, 30-23. At the start of the second half, the Tigers jumped to an 11 point lead, 34-23 before Holmes hit a set shot to bring It up to 34-25. But Greenwood hit two fast buckets for Edwardsville and the Birds trailed by 13 markers, 38-25. Kuhn counted a free throw but Newell matched It. Then Connor and Newell swapped field goals and Connor hit again from under the bucket. Butler hit a free throw for the Tigers and Edwardsville led, 42-30. Kuhn hit another free throw and Holmes counted a charity ton to run the count to 43-32 before Enloe hit a field goal and Butler • free throw for the Tigers. Connor's free throw ended scoring In the quarter and the Birds trailed, 45-33. In the final period, Greenwood and Metcalf hit for five points while Holmes hit a set shot for Alton and the Birds trailed, 50-35. Kuhn hit a free throw for Alton but Newell made two charity shots for the Tigers. Kuhn hit a side shot for the Birds but after Greenwood and Enloe had hit from the field, Edwardsville led, 55-38—17 points. That was the biggest Tiger lead of the night. Smith and Holmes hit. for Alton while Metcalf hit a free shot for the Tigers. Kuhn added two Alton points. Greenwood cancelled them, but Kuhn added two more buckets and Holmes hit a free shot to make the count 58-49. Greenwood and Metcalf hit free shots for the Tigers to boost the margin to 6049. Then came the final Alton spurt. Kuhn hit a free shot and Jim Halleck drove under the basket for two Alton points. Holmes missed two free shots, but before the final minutes had run out, Kuhn had hit twice from out and to the side, and the Birds trailed by four points, 60-56, as the final buzzer sounded. edwardsvllle Player Enloe Warning Greenwood Smoltz Butler Whited Metcalf Fleitenbaum Newell (KOI It ft pf Player 6 3 ZHalleck 0 SSmith 4 1 2Hoagland 0 0 1 Franklin 3 6 SConnor 0 0 1 Holmes 4 8 2Carsten« 0 1 OKuhn 2 3 5H1I1 Altaa (M) fg ft pf 103 1 0 1 219 Oil 319 923 112 10 4 3 001 Totals ...202023 Totals ...231024 Score by Quarters: 1234 Edwardsville 20 30 49 80 Alton 14 23 33 S6 Officials: Rauth.

Shells Shaded ByO'Failon's Quintet,42-39 The Roxana Shells continued in hard luck Friday night at Rox ana's gym when they were staded by O'Fallon's visiting quintet by a count of 42-39 in a game that was close from start to finish. The Shells were bested from the free throw line as each team hit for 32 points on field 'goals getting 16 two-pointers apiece, but the visitors hit for 10 free throws and the Shells counted for seven. The complexion of the game was evident in the first quarter with the lead changing hands often but the period ending In a tie, 13-13. Then in the second quarter, the O'Fallon five had its best scoring stanza and hit for 16 markers to take a five point edge, 29-24, only to have the Shells storm back after a few words from Coach Ed Atkinson at halftime and take a third quarter margin of 36-34. In the third period, Roxana hit for 12 points and held O'Fallon to five. But the Shell scoring spree had sprung and in the last eight minutes, Roxana was able to count for only three points, and O'Fallon tossed in eight to cop the contest. Walt Steffen, who seems to have O'Fallon's number (he was hot against the same team last year), led the Shell scoring with 17 markers, good for game honors. The fast Shell forward capitalized on fast breaks and drive-ins for eight field goals and a free throw. Second high for Roxana was Bill King, who potted eight points on four field goals. Hesse led the O'Fallon quintet in scoring, but the point making was evenly divided among four men. Hesse had. five field goals and two free throws for 12 points. Strauss was close behind with four buckets and three charity points for an 11 marker total. And Heit man and Lehman provided plenty of aid to the scoring effort vith nine markers each. Heitman had his on four field goals and a free toss while Lehman hit for three of each.

Tlh I Kb AT HARTFORD, ILLINOIS STARTING AT 12 NOON ay HARTFORD CIVIC LEAGUE Annual Onized Smoker Slated For Tuesday A highly Interesting evening Is In store for all local athletic fans, coaches and members of the various teams representing high schools and colleges in the nrea who attend the annual Onized Club's Men's Athletic "Smoker Tuesday, Jan. 10, at 8 p. m. The event will be held in the company's club rooms in East Broadway. All of the members of the St. Louis Bombers playing squad will make the trip here to provide the main attraction of the evening. These players hav^ made many friends in the area through their time spent in Alton during their pre-season training camps in the past three years. As a result they should provide an excellent drawing card, and the "Smoker" committee feels extremely fortunate that they were able to squeeze the local appearance into their crowded schedule. Grady Lewis, popular and well- known coach of the team has stated that all of his men are looking forward to .visiting Alton again. They all hope that their many friends will be on hand to greet them and renew acquaintances. Members of the team, besides Lewis, are "Easy Ed" Ma-, cauley, Johnny ' Logan, Belus Smawley, Red Rocha, Ace Maughan, Tex Parham, Don Putman, Mac Otten, Bill Roberts, D. C. Wilcutt and Johnny Orr. Along with the professional bas- keteers will be some interesting sports films including the "Highlights of the 1948-49 B. A. A. Season," Ihe second Tony Zale- Rocky Graziano fight, and some outstanding football and baseball films. It was the opinion of the Men's Athletic Council, when deciding on the program for this year, that a change be made from the baseball and football attractions which have been featured during the past three years. Basketball will certainly prove seasonal, and should provide some interesting inside "dope" for the local sports enthusiasts as well as coaches and players. -There will be no charge for admission.

Bulldogs Bite Worden Five, 52-31 Worden went to Highland Friday night looking for Its fourth victory of the present campaign but found its fifth reversal as the Trojans were burned under a 52-31 Bulldog wave. The sharp Shooting Highland squad had too much of nn edge from outcourt. The Bulldogs took a 15-7 lead at the finish of the initial quarter and went on from there to take a 28-11 lead at the halfway pause. Three periods had passed and Highland was still in the driver's seat, 39-24. Elson was the big gun for the Bulldogs. He had seven field goals and three free throws to his credit for 17 points. Bess collected five buckets and two foul shots for 12 more Highland points. Maedge led the Worden attack with three baskets and the sanvfe number of charity shots for nine points.

Jr. Church Loop Cage Schedule The Junior Church Basketball League will get Into action for the first time Saturday night, at Shurtleff College gym. Five games will be played. The schedule is as follows: Evangelical vs. Jameson Baptist 6 p. m.; Upper Alton Baptist vs. Alton Gospel Tabernacle 6:45; Brown St. Baptist vs. 12th St. Presbyterian 7:30;. Calvary Baptist So Close,Yet So Far; WMA Loses By Point, 40-39 in Th9 Ueutral So close and yet so far, as the moth chewed statement, goes. Western Military Academy came as close as you can possibly sot Friday night at the Western field house, but the Cadets found Car- llnvllle a point hotter at the end of the game, 40-39. For awhile It looked as though Western Military would pick up its second victory of the season. Then foi another while it looked as though Carlinvllle would so hack home with a win to its credit. Then when Ihe score got all knot ted at the end of the third frame, it was anybody's guess 1 . The Red Raiders took a first quarter lead by four points, 11-7. But the Cavaliers came back strong in the next period and overtook the Raiders to en to the locker rooms at the half three points ahead, 21-18. Both teams fough to a standstill as the third quarter ended with the score all confused at 29-20. The game was comparatively clean of fouls. Each learn heard the referees call 12 fouls apiece. The Cavaliers actually won the game on a field goal. Western Military had the edge In free throws, 7-6. But. Carlinvllle had the edge In field goals, 17-16. Thus, a one point, win. The loss was the third for the Raiders, who have won but one game. That was the squeaky win over Alton High back in the early days of December. Last night's game was the first for the Cadets since Dec. 13 when the Raiders lost to Gillespie, which at that time was undefeated. A new star was born last night though the Red Raiders lost. Gus Bjorklund tried his darndest to lift his mates over the Cavalier en- slaught. He poured in eight, field coals and three red strino throws for 19 points. But his output wasn't enough. Nor was Western's. Little Dick Zickpraff found lime to flip in three fielders during the game for six points. He usually gets at least one free throw a game, but as fate would have It he failed to rack tip one last night. \ Carllnvllle's attack was too well balanced for'the Cadets. Shanner had five buckets and three free throws for 13 points. Llay fol lowed with four backets and one foul shot for nine points. Finally Snodgrass rounded out the tot scorers as he dropped in trio o: goals and one charity toss for seven more Cavalier tallies. On- Friday, .Tan. 13 the Cadets will get In ABC Conference action when they are at home to John Burroughs. (That's right, Friday the 13th.).

White Mali tried desperately in the last period to overtake the Tigers, Greenfield had taken a third quarter 33-26 lead and then clung to its precious lead in the final stanza when White Hall made its bid.

That gives the Oilers wins over Kdwardsvllle, Alton, and Collinsville in Southwestern Conference piny. They still have single games- with these three earns remaining as well as home- and-home games with Granite City, Belleville, and East. St. Louis remaining. So the Oiler fans nre not as confident, as they might, he were Boh Mutz going to be eligible nil year. The his question among the local sports fans is just, how much Mutz' loss is going to affect the Wood River five. No one doubts that he'd be playing all year were he eligible— which means that. his loss is going to hurt, them some. But the consensus seems to be that even without Mutz, the Wood River crew can still do its share of basketball playing. Coach Chick Summers has been working Melvin Sheets, Lowell Pet lit, Don Capron. Bill Grable, Mutz, Norrls Dorsey, and Dick Fisher all year with pretty much regularity. Sheets, Petltt, Caproa and Grable have been consistent, starters all year with Mutz and Dorsey sharing the other starting spot. Fisher, however, has been called on several times In tough spots and has proved a handy man to have around. Day In and day out, Mutz Is probably the best shot, from out court that Summers has. Petitt seldoms strays from under tht basket, and Capron playi the corners a lot. Once In a while Grabtt can be lured Into shooting from out court, and la accurate when he succumbs to the temptation. But Sheets and Dorsey team with Mutz In handling most of the Oiler long stuff. Mutz also has a long edge over his teammates in varsity experience, battling the whole season with the Oilers last year. He's an aggressive guard, and keeps hi* head when the going gets tough, His lack of height, however, hurti the Wood River crew In the rebounding department. On the oth« er hand, the Oiler fast break con« sists largely of Mr. .Mutz. The Alton High Redbirds just about tumbled the Edwardsvlll* Tigers Friday night, and we think that the Birds played their best game to date, despite the loss. And with the Tigers likely competition for any team In the Southwestern Conference, league opponents shouldn't, figure on Alton High for any easy touch any time. In fact, the way the conference raca is shaping up, there isn't a sure win in the place. The Oilers rank as the team to beat with Edwardsville and Collinsville both on the rugged side. The Beltevllto Maroons and Granite City Happy Warriors are no sissies and tha East Side Flyers have proven their mettle In their own holiday meet. So maybe the winner of the con« ference championship will lose three games after all. Hardin Hangs One on Medora Hardin almost, let victory slip from its grasp Friday night on its own court, but. had enough steam at the end, to take care of an invading Medora brigade, 41-32. Hardin jumped to a 10-6 lead at the end of the first quarter and got into serious trouble in the second period as Medora climbed to within two points of the leaders 18-16. In the third'quarter, action was limited and Medora rallied desperately to sneak up within one point of the Hardin quint, 25-24. But in the final canto, Hardin quelled any threats as it pulled away from the rallying Medora five to notch its fifth win of the season against six setbacks. The victory was the fourth in a row for the Hardin team. High scoring honors for the game went to Bower of Medora. He had eight field goals for 16 points. Ducey led the well-balanced to 24-14 at the intermission. Dean Cochran, the boy who made such a name for himself back In the grid season, showed In* is just as adept with a basketball as he kept the Tigers in front all the way with eight field goals and nine free shots for 25 points. Another Tiger, Bob Waltrlp, popped in five goals and one charity toss for 11 more points. So between those two boys, they accounted for 36 of the 47 Greenfield points. White Hall had a big threat :.i Prlntz. He had six buckets and seven free shots for 19 points. Al Dawdy plunked in four baskets and a lone foul shot for nine White Hall points.
