After that it was just "too bad" for the others. They were not to be denied the cherished crown before them, and putting every ounce of their remaining strength and fight into their last' game, they came out on top the victors and also the champions of all the high schools in the United States. Their goal had been reached and their task accomplished. It was a tired, but happy bunch of fellows who faced the tournament officials to receive their various and siwards for their achieveThe Ashland Tomcats, the same ments. team that won the state title here The Ashland team was also honorthree weeks ago, encountered some chosen mighty difficult obstacles on jts ed bv having one of their men He was team. march to the national title and not ion the whom many enough credit can be bestowed upon Captain Ellis Johnson, work the team. Entering- the tournament will remember for his brilliant along with the best from 12 other hexe during the recent state tournastates, the Tomcats were not regard- ment. Kentucky was also represented at ed by the experts as a team that would cause any feerious trouble and the national tournament by a team would probably not survive the sec- that fooled the whole basketball world ond round. Once in Chicago, the and established a name for them Tomcats took things into their own selves and the village that they rephands and after the first game they resented. Carr Creek, the team that showed the spectators and others how was on the tongue of every man, the game was played in the state of woman and child in Lexington and Kentucky. Keeping up the same driv- elsewhere a few weeks ago, as the ing and persistent pace that was a fame has spread, for the people in "Waterloo" to the teams they met, Chicago have taken up the chant and Ashland kept driving until their goal look with awe and wonder on a team "Things may come and things may go, but Car Creek and Ashland will go on forever." For the benefit of those who might not know, it perhaps will interest them to be informed that it was a Kentucky team which won the national basketball championship of the United States. It was none other than the Tamcats, from Ashland, on the Big Sandy river, who gained for themselves a record that will be mighty hard to beat in the years to come. tro-pri- t - jsiiig such an unorthodox manner and way while playing in Chicago. Going to the "Windy City" as a team that didn't have the slightest chance in all the world of even winning one game, they proved the sensation of the whole tournament and won three games besides. Winning from schools whose attendance outnumbered them niany times and whose cities were large enough to lose the hamlet in which they lived, the Creekmnn played these terms to a standstill, d"feat-in- g the best from three states. While in Chicago, the Carr Creek boys made such a hit with the people that they woie immediately swamped with invitations to various places of amusement and dinners. It was just impossible for them to accept them all. In fact if they had accepted every invitation it would have taken them two whole weeks for that alone. The excellent work of Shelby Stamper earned for him a team.

The Kentucky team leaves the L. and N. station at 8 o'clock tonight. In Atlanta tomorrow will be gathered the running men from Illinois, Iowa, Iowa State, Indiana, Notre Dame, Northwestern, and all the states in the land of Dixie to take part in the annual Georgia Tech relays. Iowa holds the national record in the mile relay. Iowa State won relay at the great Illithe nois meet three weeks ago, and the Illinois teams ran first in the medley relays. and Kentucky has seven scantily clad cinder warriors headed by rrti athletic hero named William Gess to toe the line with these swift nomads of the north, and those of the sotith who have not yet flashed across the horizon of track fame.

Mr. Jeffries committed a costly error in the sixth when Illinois made five runs, and this man Ericson, the blond Viking from Sweden, fanned the air with a funny bludgeon when hits in the pinches meant runs. Stumbling up from under Southern skies where four games had been blown in the gentle breezes, these Wildcats of Coach Majors' ruffled up their winter furs and looked as for midable as a squad of irritated por cupines on quill parade during the first three innings when they made four runs and held the Illinois batsmen to a prayer. It was the second inning and Raymond Rhoads was shivering at the bat. He walked. Jovial Johnny Cote took up his bludgeon and sacrificed while Rhoads ran to second and then came home on .Ericson's sharp singe through the pitcher's box. out. This ended the Kentucky scoring and Illinois made five runs in the sixth when they batted around. They tallied another run in the ninth when Sweeney singled and then circled the bases after the hit rolled through " Layman's legs.

Boswell, Petrel star, hit a homer in the second inning, scor ing three runs, and providing the game winning margin. Jeffries and Gilb were the heavy stickers for the Blue, getting two hits out of five times at bat. Lawson, Petrel pitcher, struck out nine Kentuckians, and aided materially in winning the game. Wert had a very bad day, walking seven men and hitting two others with the. pellet. Oglethorpe made seven errors, but the 'Cats could not avail themselves of many of these as scoring aides. The second' game ended a tie, 414, in the tenth inning. After a ninth inning rally had pulled them into an even break, the 'Cats were forced to leave after the tenth inning In order to catch a train for Tennessee. Oglethorpe was off to a good start, scoring three runs in the first inning. Kentucky got two runs in the ninth to tie the count.
