Vidette-Messenger, The (Newspaper) - March 3, 1936, Valparaiso, Indiana THE VIDETTE-MESSENGER, VALPARAISO. INDIANA TUESDAY, MARCH 3, VALPO SEEKS TO UPHOLD TOURNAMENT EMERSON 1ST FOE TO TEST Valparaiso high school baskelbal team's long established reputation for formidability in tournamcn play will receive the acid test thi. week when Coach Ralph Powel sends the Vikings up against a stiff drawing in their first crack at Gary sectional honors. A first round game with Tolleiton Friday afternoon should not hurt tile Green and White's good name any. When Valpo conies back against Emerson at nine o'clock that samn night, however, its claim to touir.ey toughness will require a lot of de- fending. The Vikings and Norsemen met just once during the regular season Emerson won that engagement, a personal foul party, by a 27-18 score. The Gary squad's speedy forwards. Fordy Anderson and Bill Lazar, away from Valpo's guards on block plays throughoul the game to pour in easy baskets. DJspite this defensive weakness, Valpo managed to keep pace for three quarters. Then Anderson, who had been sitting out a period with three personals charged against him re-entered to lead a voctorious clos- ing drive. Disorganization of both teams, due to hairline officiating, prevent- ed that contest from being a true test of ability. Furthermore, there is no telling what the reaction of the rival quintets will be to the strain of tournament competition as applied Friday in the second meet- ing. Should Emerson have its recently perfected fast break in well-oiled condition for the Vikings, the Gary- ites will be favored to win. Such an offensive may fall apart just as rea- dily as it clicks when the pressure goes on, however, and there is every assurance that Valpo will be keyed to clamp down hard. Carrying the Vikings to the semi- final round, as fate may do, their troubles will not ease a trifle. Lew Wallace is the logical semi-finalist from the other half of the lower bracket, and the Hornets, too, hold a decision over the Powellmen. For that matter, four of the five other major-teams in the meet have trimmed Valpo at least once this ON THE ALLEYS The Pint Topplers rolled the Pin Sockers in the Continental Dia- mond Girls' league last night on the Publix Alleys.

Recent tournament history is leaded with incidents wherein under- rated Valpo teams have knocked off touted opponents, however, and the current club will lay all its hopes for success on just such an upset program. How well Valpo fans will support the Powellmen in their necessarily courageous stand will be revealed in part by the local season ticket j to greet two of the five stragglers down later to a dinner prepared for them in the home of Harvey Field, former Vidette linotype operator, now head of a newspaper at Nap- 132 145 panee. The Valpoites used a fast- I breaking attack on the victuals, 1 afterwards declaring that the hos- pitality of the Field home was ex- celled only by Its cookery. Highlight of the rough, hard- fought court battle was the shoot- jlng of Jim Hildreth, Valpo guard 'in the first half. Hildreth pumped in five baskets from midfloor dur- ing that period. The resultant ten points were a big factor in estab- lishing the Old Stylers' 22-19 first- half advantage. Nappanee, boasting the cream of the town's hardwood talent, came back with an unbeatable bucket barrage in the last half, however, SURVEY GIVES SCENES AT BIG LEAGUECAMPS PENSACOLA, Fla., Mar.

For 25 years, teams attempting to accomplish that feat have faltered I in the state tournament test. Last year, Jeffersonville, undefeated in i regular season competition, battled through sectional, regional and final tournament opposition until it was within one game of the coveted goat. After 31 consecutive victories Jeff lost the final game, and the state championship to Anderson, 23 to 17. Today, Tipton stands in exactly the same spot as Jeff did one year ago. and where other teams have stood in the past. Winners of 20 regular season contests, Johnny Ward's Blu Devils, choice of many to win she state title, take their place at the barrier, a marked team by every foe they will encounter during the one-month of tournament compe- tition. Assigned to the Sheridan section- al, Tipton must win four games to gain the center title and continue on. Noblesville is slated to provide the Blue Devils their first real test in the final sectional game. To win the state title, Tipton must win six more games two each in the re- gional, semi-final an dfinal tourna- ments. Can it do It? Coaches, players and followers of the 784 teams entered in the 25th annual Indiana high school atli- MASTERINC BRIDGE (54) THE "PLAIN-SU1T ECHO" used only at no trumps, to show four or more cards of partner's suit, thus aiding him to count the number o Ills suit held by declarer and dis- closing liow to play his own cards In case partner happens to be longer In the suit. All this Is very Important The fate of many a contract depends upon which side wins one trick more or less. Unless forced to play your highest card to win the first trick, you play the one Immediately below it, thus starting an echo when partner leai the first card of his suit. On the next lead of that suit you play 'the card lower than the one wlflch went on the first trick, and so on In case you hold more than four cards of the suit, until you hold only the original highest and lowest of part- ner's suit. In case you hold the same number of the suit as partner, you should win tho last trlch If It Is desirable to lead to weakness In dummy. If you wish partner to lead through dummy's strength take care to allow partner to win the last trick In his suit.

BY GEORGE KIRKSEY (United Press Staff Correspondent) NEW YORK, Mar. With yesterday the official date for the opening of the spring baseball training season, every major league player who isn't under contract can be considered a bona fide holdout. Up to now there's been a lot of poker playing between the magnates and the ballplayers. There are a lot of dissatisfied ath- letes this year. The magnates brought most of the trouble on themselves by talking in big money, and jacking up the price of ball players. When Tom Yawkey shells out about for four of CoAl- nie Mack's stars, and Clark Griffith puts a price tag on a player worth about one-fifth, or less, of that amount, the ball players, some of whom are no longer dumb, get the general Idea. Another thing that stirred up the Hornet's nest was the published list of what seme of the magnates made in 1934, according to the official figures from Washington. Branch Rickey's salary of nearly for 1934 is one of the chief reasons for Dizzy Dean's demand for more than twice what he made last .250 G 7 11 12 confer- of four teams each, March 21, before .222 Itnev reach the final tournament in 154 Butler University Fieldhouse March 28. here choice location. swing into action until Friday niter- Baseman Zcke Bonura and Second! noon, and the usual pep .session be held at the school Friday Ing.
