Tom- Peoria Woodruff's coach, my Correll, whose team was de- feated by Pulaski at the Paris tourney, in a Chicago Daily News story, rates Bill Dittus as the out- standing player in the tourney.

And when you consider that this was un- doubtedly the game that carried more potential explosions than any played in recent years, it is all the more remarkable. Only one incident looked like a mar on the fine attitude of the fans. That was at the close of the game when an orange struck the back of one of the referees. It was not thrown by an irate spectator but some youngster was swing- tng a lunch box he had brought his supper in, and an orange flew out of it and hit the ref in the back. At the time the ref was quite angry. We are glad it happened that way for it was the only discordant note we heard of. Pulaski's whlpplng Lincoln and showing in the Paris tourney has pushed them up from honor- able mention to 10th in the state standings. Lincoln dropped to the game tied up. Veech went dovrn the floor ahead of the field to score, but Jones' rebound even- ed. Armstrong sank a free one and Hahn scored on a pass from ardent Lincoln fan and as Pulas- l Armstrong.

In view of the fact that Pulaski plays Springfield high here next Tues- day night, it is perhaps just as well. Harry Hahn, 6-3 sophomore, did a swell job in helping carry the load, sinking some nice bas- kets and doing some nice floor 15-26 47 i work. When stating a player is 6-3, or 6-5, like Robinson of Feitshans is, they should use a different type of measurement -- t hey should include the arms as well. That would have made him 12-10, or less. Lincoln's Railsplitters bare one of the best prospective state fin- als basketball teams in their his- tory, with plenty of height, speed and experience to carry them through. If the Railsplitters don't make the grade this year and do not windup at the state in an en- viable spot, then we are inclined to agree with President H. T. that their coach, Paul Johnson, should have "his head examined." GRADE SCHOOL BASKETBALL SCHEDULE Thurs., Jan. II--I.O.O.F., there. Sat., Jan. 13--Atlanta, there. Men., San.
