West Bend Protests Basket Ball Game. In one of lost week's issues of the Des Moines Register, the sporting page carried the following article regarding the West Bend-Algona basket ball game in which the West Bend five left the floor in the middle of the third quarter: "Bernard F. Bliss, superintendent of the West Bend schools, de- nis that West. Bend forfeited its basket Uall game played at Algona Friday night, December 12, to Algona. Bliss points out that West Bend was never behind during the contest and that its players were taken from the floor in the third period when it was discovered that the referee, whom he claims was Incompetent, had not been licensed or approved by the Iowa High School Atihlutic association, and was therefore not eligible to work the game. Bliss also contends that Algona not only violated the state association rules by using this official but also the terms of the contract through Its failure to notify him three days in advance, of the officials' name. Bliss further states that he is willing to place the matter of the forfeiture bofore the state association for a de- cison, but says he will not do so him- solf unless the Algona officials so de- site." It seems that Mr. Bliss would make a mountain out of a mole hill as Algona did not claim the forfeit. The game probably was too fast for the referee but, even so, West Bend had the better of the argument insofar as fouls were concerned. They were continually fouling, such as guarding from behind and holding, which is absolutely against the rules. After they had left the floor the West Benders remarked that they had been getting by with that kind of playing all along and which would indicate that they knew It was against the rules. As far as the referee was concerned, Coach Bonham has stated tlmt Ills name was sent over to West Bend before the game and it was West Bend's duty to protest before the game. If the referee had called all the fouls that were committed by the visitors they would not have had a team on the floor after the first quarter. It would seem that the best way to settle the matter would be to let the game go by the boards and settle the difference when the two teams play again.
