A. basketball team last night Ihe delayed drive to Berlin will commence when they get into action in France. Hostilities ceased with the-V team in the lead, 32 points to 26. It was an Instance where, skill anil scioiiiie finally triumphed over brawn and muscle. However, that is not. to say that tub soldiers were not. They displayed Hashes ot artistic play which bore every evidence of poruand but in this respect the Y. M. C. A. representatives 'went them one better. The Battery boys have a reputation as exponents of' the line points ot basketball, but the hard work of sold- ier life has no doubt' stiffened their must-lea and tills handicapped them ill all probability, and was responsible for.the strenuous tactics employed in place of skill. .No Pink Tea Affair. It was the liveliest basketball tilt seen at the Y. M. C. A. at any time. It was a riot. It was a good reminder ot the way they used to play rugby in the States in the nineties, when the ambulance and hearse awaited the dead and the'dying in vicinity of ac tlon. These war times breed a lust tor battle and the players revelled in the spirit of the occasion, and to say the spectators gloried in tile conibat is putting on the i soft pedal. The gal- lery was thronged with .spectators of both sexes, soldiers in uniform com- prising about half the crowd. They their'comrades to the rooting and. otherwise offering encouragement to the soldier: boys In their fight for victory. The opening moments of the contest saw the Battery assume the lead. Thev carried the game with a velocity that took the 'Y' off Its feet, and in a lew minutes the score was 10 to 2 in the soldiers' favor. TlioV'Y" crept up on their stalwart opponents, and it became a nip and tuck scrap to the finish of the half, which ended IS to 16 in favor of the Battery. More Steamboaiing The first Half was a hummer, but for a wild-lire melee the second half had t'iie-first backed off the map. A Berlin bread riot had nothing on this" little affair. 'As guessed-the participants didn't come out of the fray seathless. A knockout here and ii knockout there was quite in order and'the boys smiled the while.. They seemed :to; say this, is fine. hay, this play. I'd r'atiier have this than a full month's pay'any day. It was not long after the opening of the second half that the "Y" evened up Ihe score and then they forged Uiead It an} bod j s game until neai the finish when the T nego tinted three baskets and put the game on ICL Leon bunsworth the Dick of the Y team was in the limelight in the final i spurt and was mainly re sponsible for the clean-cut victory of liis team.
