Just as simple as that. Tuesday night they came Into town with no wins In five South* western Illinois Conference starts, „„,.„ ,They were, striving for their first gMter league win—same as their oppo- miillr nents.

And they showed why they're rated as one of the upset- tln'est of all teams. Oh yes, the score! Much to Alton's sorrow, 54-33. East Side couldn't have picked a better night to 'escape the darkness of the conference cellar. The blue and gold clad invaders caught the Birds in their usual coma. It has lasted now for the last 11 games and the Hllltoppers haven't been able to snap out of It since coming to life briefly against Benld In the second game of Vhe season. Alton's ace scorer, Bob Kuhn, wasn't able to make the game last night. A few details like a "strep throat" and the doctor's orders to stay put in bed at the hospital kept him from playing. Had he been able to play, it's doubtful If the alertless Birds could have done anything with the hepped-ap Flyers. . Hep Characters Seems as though the Flyers have been hepped up a lot of late. They got all aroused In their own Christmas holiday tournament and knocked off Pekin, which was previously undefeated. Then they came within four points of brushing off Kankakee in the championship game, That's old news, but It's a gentle reminder just to prove how these men of Pick Dehner can be un predictable. Wood River's power ful Oilers had the stuffings scared out of them by the Flyers. They were so bewildered by the Flyer spirit that they were caught napping and found themselves behind at the half. So, what kind of a chance did Alton have against East St. Louis last night on the Redbird floor, which has suddenly turned against them? Last year it was next to impossible for visiting teams to win on the Hilltoppers' hardwood. This year— oh woe, oh woe! Coach George Ingles of Alton can't seem to find the right combination. He's tried five different ones in the last five games. Last night, Tommy Holmes, Karl Hoagland, Bob Collins, Jim Halleck, and Don Harrison were on the floor when the referee tooted his black noise-maker for the first time. The five combined to score a to tal of one field goal and three free throws in the first quarter. Hoagland scored four of those points, while the rest of the team busied themselves worrying about what the other team did, and not paying too much attention to their shoot ing. Here Am I Begging for ... Five minutes had elapsed before Hoagland hit that precious first quarter field goal. It was a long one hander from the side and so surprised the Birds that they didn't come close the remainder of the period. Gibson Kurtz, who gets a big bang out of cutting up capers during time outs and rest periods caused the Birds the most serious trouble. The bullet headed young ster broke the game wide open in the third frame. For the game Kurtz dumped In nine field goals and two free shots for 20 points. Had he been at full strength, the score might have been bigger. Last year, Gib was out with rheumatic fever and never did get into any games. This year he showed Dehner so much talent in pre-season practice that he was a It was easy Totals ...M1014 Totals Score by Quarters: ast 81. Louis Alton Officials: Mauth. Drlficra.
