Vidette-Messenger, The (Newspaper) - March 3, 1936, Valparaiso, Indiana THE VALPARAISO INDIANA TUESDAY MARCH 3 VALPO SEEKS TO UPHOLD TOURNAMENT EMERSON 1ST FOE TO TEST Valparaiso high school team's long established reputation for formidability in 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 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 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 score The Gary squad's speedy forwards Fordy Anderson and Lazar away from guards on block plays the game to pour in easy baskets 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 to lead a ing drive Disorganization of both teams due to hairline officiating 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 ing Should Emerson have its recently perfected fast break in well-oiled condition for the Vikings the ites will be favored to win Such an offensive may fall apart just as 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 from the other half of the lower bracket and the Hornets too hold a decision over the For that matter four of the five other in the meet have trimmed Valpo at least once this ON THE ALLEYS The Pint rolled the Pin Sockers

THE 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 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 suit In case you hold the same number of the suit as partner you should win tho last 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 The hand given today Is

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 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 nie Mack's stars and Clark Griffith puts a price tag on a player worth about 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
