While the personal fouls were about even, Valpo having fourteen to the losers' thirteen, Manchester suffered most from the rather close officiating. Three Spartan players were sent from the game with over- loads of personals, Walters, Reber and Riiey leaving the fray in the second half. Pete Rucinski, local b f floor guard; was dismissed" earlier in i ee' the melee for the same reason. Good _aided the in- vaders materially, eleven of their sixteen allotted casts being made. Vaipo hit eight with the same num- .ber of chances, but outscored the Spartans, seven to five, from the field. Harold Schultz, who started his first game this year with the Uh- lans, was the outstanding perform- "er of the evening. His basket and three free throws in the first half kept the Brown and Gold outfit within hailing distance of the Man- chester aggregation, while his guarding of Chapman in the second period had the Gold and Black cap- laln in a bad way most of the time. Valpo scoring was fairly well divid- ed. Kowalski tying Schultz with five liumis, while Barnekoff and Bauer four markers and Olson and Merz a basket apiece. Manchester started strongly, and feemed headed for a repeat of their tamer easy victory. Chapman miss- ed a free toss on Rucinski's holding but Walters hit from the side a mo- went later.
