The Red and Black basketball quintet humbled the alumni hoop tossers in a 23 to 12 tangle on the Natatorium floor last night. The game on a whole, was loosely played, although at times both squads showed basketball class.

The advantage of training was obvious in the performance of the high school men, an advantage that the alumni basketeers could not overcome. Both Sherwood and Prescott, playing guards for the high school, played especially well, throughout the game, holding the fast alumni forwards for few scores. Baughman at center will undoubtedly develop into a fast man in the center ring, while Coleman and Young, forwards, showed clever handling of the ball.

Klum’s men deserve much credit for their first performance of the season and, although they did well last night, it is generally believed that they must improve in general team work and speed up their work considerably before the game with Etna Mills Friday night is they expect to carry off honors. This improvement is certain to come from a week’s practice under Coach Klum’s direction and Medford people have every reason to feel confident that M. H. S. will duplicate her football record in basketball ...

As a preliminary the high school girls and an alumni sextet played a close game which ended in a 15 to 14 victory for the high school. King’s girl team played a good dame and should develop into a championship squad for this section. Sylvia Hukill especially deserves mention for her work for the high school.

A good sized crowd witnessed the two contests and seemed well satisfied with the showing made by the high school teams in their initial appearance.

The next regular scheduled game will be with Etna Mills at the Natatorium next Friday night.


The first hunting and fishing license of the new year in Jackson County, a combination one, was taken out by Ben Peart of Central Point, as usual, and since then there have been a dozen such licenses issued. Mr. Peart has taken out the first hunting and fishing license for the past six or eight years.


A rumor on the street here last week to the effect that the oil well now being drilled near Klamath Falls had developed into a gusher failed of confirmation on inquiry. It developed that a strong flow of gas occasioned the report. — Yreka News.
