jimmy II, tin ALTON, ILL., SATURDAY, JANUARY 14,1950 Membtr of Tht ANoelattd PfNi. ft Far Co** W: Blast Alton Five at Granite City, 53-28 Bob Kuhn Out of Game; Karl Hoagland Redbirds' Only Effective Scorer Southwestern Standings Team. W. L. Wood River ........... 5 0 EdwardsVille 4 1 Collinsville 3 1 Belleville . 3 2 Granite City 2 4 Alton 0 4 East St. Louis 0 5 By JOHN EOCHT Telegraph Sport* Editor With Bob Kuhn missing the game because of illness, Karl Hoagland assumed the scoring load for the Alton High Redbirds at Granite City Friday, night and racked up 11 points. But he proved the only effective scorer for the Birds, and the Alton High five was tumbled by the Happy Warriors by a count of 53-28, after the boys of Coach Byron Bozarth had stepped out to a comfortable lead in the second quarter and made it a commanding margin in the third period. The loss was the fourth In the Southwestern Conference for the Redbirds, who still rest In sixth place, a notch above the East St. Louis Flyers, who iiave lost all five of their league games. The game started -out like a close contest, although Norman Martinez sank two fast buckets for the Warriors to give Granite City a fast 4-0 lead. But Tom Holmes hit a set shot for the Redbirds before Kahle sank a free throw for the Warriors. Then Hoagland drove in for an under- the-basket field goal and Alton trailed by a point, 5-4. Fox added a free throw for Granite City, but Jim Halleck matched it for the Birds. The Warriors opened up a 9-5 margin but Fred Carstens sank two free shots to pull Alton to within two points, 9-7, at the end of the first quarter. When the second quarter started, Fox hit a free shot for Granite City and Hoagland added one for Alton to make the score 10-8. At that point the Birds were very much in the ball game, but then Granite City hit for eight straight points to run the count to 18-8, before Alton could score again. Hoagland hit a long set shot to run the Bird total to 10, but by halftlme, the Warriors had a 28-15 lead. In the third quarter, the fast- breaking, ball-hawking Granite City five jpad turned on the heat to rack up another 13 points while holding Alton to five and take a commanding 41-20 lead. Then, in the fourth stanza, with substitutes appearing for the Warriors, the Granite City quintet, which ended the game with the second team hit for another 13 points while allowing the Redbirds eight. Both coaches used substitutes freely, Bozarth to keep down the score and give his second team experience and Ingles trying to find a scoring combination and to look over his substitutes. Hoagland was shooting more than usual and ended the game tied for scoring honors with Martinez and Fox, all three having 11 points. Hoagland had hits on four field goals and three free shots. His field gqals accounted for almost half of the Alton total of nine. Don Harrison, a sophomore making his varsity debut, hit for two baskets, Tommy Holmes hit for another pair, both set shots, and Hill added the final bucket. Hoagland was the only player in the game for Alton able to score both from the field and the free throw line. Carstens, Halleck and Bob Collins each added two points for the Redbirds on gift shots and Roscoe Franklin broke into the scoring columns with a tingle free throw. The Redbirds, already hampered by Kuhn's absence, were further handicapped by a good night for two of the Granite City boys—Fox and Kahle. Neither are heavy ecorera ordinarily, but Friday night, they combined for 18 points with Fox getting 11 and Kahle seven. Martinet, the old reliable of the Warrior tribe, added eleven, but his running mate, Joe Gonzales, was held to fix, on three field goals. Johnny Betta, the fifth Granite City starter, had 10 markers on (our field goala and a pair of free ahota. The Redbirds will try their luck tonight at ColllneviUe against the Kaholu who ejelned third place In the conference standings Friday with a win over Belleville.

The game, at East Junior, will start at 8:30 p. m, A Shurtleff win would also run the Pioneer win streak to four straight, longest of the current campaign, and bring the season's record for Shurtleff to eight wins and three losses. In their only conference start to date, the Pioneers found the Quincy Hawks tough, but not tough enough, and took- a 49-41 decision. In Eureka, the men of Coach Merle Pearce could find fodder for a second league win in the short conference season that finds each team playing only six games, a double-round robin in the six team circuit. The Eureka game will mark the second of three quick conference classes for the Pioneers. They stopped Quincy Wednesday, hit Eureka tonight, and then meet McKendree College, also at East Junior, Monday. Those three encounters will complete the home conference season for the Pioneers —who will have road games with all three league foes. So far this season, the Pioneers have had what it takes most of the time. They started slowly, stopping Harris Teachers College in the first, game of the year but then dropping encounters with Missouri School of Mines at Rolla and Illinois Normal, in a home game. But Pearce piloted his men to three wins, over Scott Field, Carthage College, and Okland City, Ind. College, before the Pioneers again slipped from the win trail. The defeat came from Illinois College in the Jacksonville tournament. But for consolation honors in the four team meet, the Pioneers again found Carthage with not enough to stop Shurtleff. That game started the current Shurtleff win skein and has been followed by victories over Concordia of St. Louis and Quincy, in the conference opener. Indications are that Pearce will call on his usual first five against Eureka. Holding down the center slot, according to the dope sheet, will be big John Logan, rangy Pioneer pivotman. Logan, a smooth operator around the free throw lane, is an expert at rebounding and can hit the hoop from the pivot or on rebounds. He also is well versed in the Shurtleff style of play, and sets up his mates for drive-in shots or set shots from farther out. Also in the altitude category come Rob Poe and Bob Jones. Both combine with Logan to make a tough tip-in trio and give the Pioneers control of both boards in many of the Shurtleff games. Jones and Poe are practically twins from the standpoint of cage technique. They like to drive but can hit from out on running or turn shots. And both are at home in the corners. The windup of the first five for Shurtleff is Dutch Miller and George Gaunder. Miller is the little man who does more of the Shurtleff scoring than most of his mates. An uncanny set shot from outside, Miller is also fast and has the agility to drive around a guard unwary enough to try to block one of his longs. And hits from under as well as leading a lot of fast breaks. Gaunder likes his shots from out, and makes plays for the Pioneer quintet as well as playing a glue-like guarding game.

Shipman had little trouble with Medora as the Pirates .lumped to a 15-8 lead in the first eight minutes of play and continued to a '26-V2 margin at halftime. The edge increased to 40-23 at the end of the third quarter before ending up n! 62-43. Davis and Taylor were the big guns in the Shipman shooting. Davis led all scorers in the game as he combined eight field goals and five free shots for a 21-point total. Taylor was not far behind as he hit for 15 points on six baskets and three free shots. For Medora, Bowker led scoring with seven buckets for 14 points. In the consolation game, Brighton took a 12-10 lead at the end of the first quarter and lengthened it to 20-15 at halftime. But St. John's came back with a 13-point third period to tie the score at 28-28 before each team scored nine points in the last period to send the game into overtime. But in the extra minutes, Brighton hit for six points and limited the Carrollton crew to one. Yost and Towse were high for Medora with Yost getting 16 points and Towse 15. Yost had five field goals and six free shots, while Towse had four baskets and seven free throws. M. Caselton had 17 points for game honors for St. John's as he hit for six field goals and five charity points before leaving the game on five personals. Carmody was next for St. John's with 11 markers. By HUGH FULLERTON, Jr. NEW YORK, Jan. 14.

OT 43 38 County Meet At Wood River Plan lied i or 7>0 A Madison County basketball tournament will be held at the new Wood River High fieldhouse In December, 1950, Ray Floyd, Wood River athletic director announced today. The tournament will, be a two division meet with eight teams in each section. Two champions will be crowned, one of the A section composed of the larger schools and one of the B section, which will contain the smaller schools. Sixteen basketball teams in the county have indicated that they will enter the tournament. Floyd indicated that the tournament is planned as an annual affair and will be sponsored by Wood River High in the Memorial Fieldhouse at Wood River, now under construction. The fieldhouse, with a seating capacity of approximately 5000, will be ready for use next season. The dates' for the tournament are Dec. 5-9, running for five night sessions. Floyd said that present plans call for three games on each of the first three nights of the meet and two games, both championship encounters, the final session. Four trophies will be awarded, for first and second place in division. Entries for the A division, composed of schools with enrollments of more than 200 students, include the host Oilers, Highland, Ed- wardsvllle, Roxana, Granite City, Alton, Western Military Academy, and Madison. Missing from the A division Is the tough quintet of Collinsville Kohoks, which avoids stitution." "Did you say free subsidy?" asked the other . . .

Heavyweight—Wood River forfeited to Western Military Academy. tournaments aside from the state elimination series, preferring to play a larger single game schedule, for financial reasons. The B division, with teams from schools whose enrollments are less than 200, will include for the 1950 tournament, Livingston, St. Jacob, Bethalto, Venice, Dunbnr of Madison, Worden, Lincoln of Venice, and Troy. The Wood River tournament should prove one of the toughest county meets in the state, particularly in the A division. It will feature, in the A class, four members of the tough Southwestern Conference (Alton, Wood Iliver, Edwardsville, and Granite City) as well as Highland of the MBC league ami Western Military Academy of the ABC loop. Madison and Roxana, at present are unattached. The decision to form the tournament into two divisions Is in accord with the track meet idea in Madison county, where separate meets are held for the large and small schools. This theory, in both track and basketball, gives the smaller schools a chance to compete on an equal basis with schools of their own size. In the Madison County basketball tournament, tha A division teams will ordinarily be considerably stronger than those in the B class — because of considerably larger enrollments, had no alternative but to forge ahead at the end of the third frame, 29-24. What had gone wrong for the Burroughs' boys in the first half Began to click now. They got theii passes into their center, McCarthy and he did some mighty fine passing off to teammates under the bucket. McCarthy wasn't too tall, but his uncanny ability to get up in the air had the Cadets thrashing at the air in vain. All Burroughs would do was to pass into Me Carthy, who leaped in to the at mosphere, snag the ball and pass off to his mates breaking for the basket. Western had to rely on Ion; shots last night. The Cadet couldn't get through the Bur roughs' defense too much, a' though the first half was bette than the second (a simple deduc tion.) Late in the game, when th Raiders were pursuing the gol and blue clad visitors, Dick Zick graff fouled out and that was jus about the end of Western. Gus Causes Fuu! Gus Bjorklund was high man fo Hie Western Raiders. He tallie four buckets and a free shot fo nine points. Hassel Stone came in for second honors with a trio o field goals for six points. Tom Holsen plunked in fivi points, while Zlckgraff got four markers during his tenure. A look at the John Burroughs lineup proves just how effective McCarthy's passing off was Duncker and Wagner each dropped in 10 points to share scoring hon ors for the invaders. But Peniston and Werner flipped eight more tal lies apiece. So busy was McCarthy with his> passing off work that he managed only three points all night. It was a below-par performance for him but his passing mastery was felt by the Cadets. The loss was the fourth of the season for the Red Raiders, who have won one game. It was also the first ABC Conference loss for the Altonians in their initial start in the league, J.

Illinois Valley Conference opponent, White Hall, but had a surprisingly easy time chalking up a 75-39 score. Only in the second period did the Panthers fail to do much damage. They led at the end of the first period, 20-11, and at the half they had only a 29-22 lead. But I he third quarter found the Pan ther.s ripping the White Hall de< fi'nso to pieces and going on to a 56-33 margin after three frames. Everybody got into the act for Jerseyville. Gerald Nairn was high SHOOTING MATCH Sat. and Sun., Jan. 14th and ISth itartlni at 12 Now — AT Hartford, Illinois Sponsored By Hartford Civic League In The Heutral ttlfh John Focht Joe Dugan, flashy halfback a. Vestern Military Academy two cars ago, is making his mark at ic University of Arkansas. As a enior, Dugnn played with an un- efented Red Rnlder eleven which •as undefeated largely because it ad Dugnn. The Cadets stopped klton, for instance, on Dugan's ouchdown, by a 6-0 score. The latest, dope is that Dugan, ow a sophomore at the Univer- ity of Arkansas, Is a favorite with he sports writers of the Razor- tack area. Last year, his sopho- nore, he was used as a spot runner or the Arkansas eleven and com- )iled a phenomenal average for ;aining ground, the few times he 'arried the ball. According to our information, Dugan gained 105 yards against he Texas Aggies in a game that ound the entire Razorback team gaining 293. That, isn't a bad percentage for a spot player. And we jnderstand that he compiled his 05 yards in just two jaunts. Against Baylor, a tough team In •my book, Dugan carried the ball \vicc and gained a total of 85 'ards. Once he went 62 yards and he second jaunt carried him 23 yards for a touchdown. It looks as If Dugan is liable to end up getting a niche in Arkansas ootball history similar to the one .hat he carved at Western Mili- ary Academy. As expected, the Oiler fans are making plans to put their new VIemorial fieldhouse to work. From what we understand of the building, it should be one of the best around here. A natural tlte fci tournaments, the Wood River High officials have already got together with the other Madison County schools for a county tournament, next December. And unless the Illinois High School Association big-wigs have holes In their heads, the Oilers will be getting a share of the regional and sectional tournaments around the area. Gyms are made to be used, and we're glad to see the Oilers are going to use theirs as much as possible. This county tournament plan to great. The decision to play two divisions, thus pitting the larger teams against foes their size and letting the smaller schools meet opponents of comparable size, Is the only fair way to conduct a county contest. Otherwise, the smaller schools will either he uninvited or soon eliminated. And neither prospect is pleasant (or the smaller towns. This way, everyone has a chance to Win. Wood River fans may be bemoaning the fact that the fieldhouse wasn't ready for the tournament this year with the present edition of the Oiler cagers participating, but the grapevine has it that Coach Chick Summers has some boys coming up that will do pretty well next season. A coach doesn't lose such boys as Dick Fisher, Bob Mutz, Don Capron, Darrell Reid, Lowell Petltt, Charlie King, Norris Dorsey, and Bill Grable without knowing they are gone. Principia Notches Ninth Win, 59-48 The Principia College Indians from nearby Elsah won their ninth game of the season against one loss Friday night at Springfield as they romped over Concordia Seminary, 59-48. Not since the first game of the campaign has any team come close to beating the Indians. That lone loss was to Standard Oil's independent cagers and was by one point. Prin was not in danger at any time during the game. The Indians led at the end of the first hal/ 31-18. Jack Burzell paced the Tribe in the scoring department by accounting for seven buckets, gooc enough for 14 points. Norm Rousselot was a step be< hind with five field goals and two free throws for 12 points. Paul Kilburn flipped in four buckets and a pair of aces for ten more Prin points. Game scoring honors went to Concordia's Killion, who pumped in half a dozen buckets and a trio of foul shots for 15 points. Schultz plunked in four more baskets and eight foul tosses for 14 points for the hosts.
