CCC CAGSRS WIN 59-23
The CCC Headquarters Company basketball team added anouher laurel to their
wreath by defeating Co. "L" of the Post
Tuesday night on the Fort floor. Despite
the fact that this was an exibition' game
the boys suffered from "buck fever" during the first half. But their whirlwind
ability in dropping the ball through the
basket from the start of the second half
until the final whistle attested to the
fact that they have the makings of'a
Substitutions on the team wore few as
Mike Walsh, Mickey Morrow, and Jack
Pettit were constants. However, "Bev"
Palmer and Harold Phillips made a good
showing.until"being relieved by "Woodie"
: Humphrey and Bill Martin during tho last
stages of the game. Dean Zaner and "Cub"

wares during the last few minutes of play
: and aided in adding a few more points to
tho already mounting score.

regular league game with plant" ©f excitement' and thrills thrown in for good
. measure. The team is deserving of a lot
of support, and attendenco at the games
will be greatly appreciated'by the players and the manager, Wilson Carney,

FIRST SNOW FAIL NITS .""
".'inter crept upon the unsuspecting
world last Friday to the tunc of swishing snowflakes and whistling wind.
'Beginning in the wcc small hours of
morning, the snow fell, o.tcadily, covering the black earth with a heavy blanket
of. white. A bustling wind whirled the
snow into large drifts, blocking roads
and sidewalks, until by nightfall it was
a difficult task for one to wend his way
hither and yen.
The snow certainly raised havoc v/ith
trolley service both here on the Post and
elsewhere. The "dummy" was off the track
a couple of times, and v/hon it did run,
the motorman had to got off every twenty
feet or so to hunt for the track.
The fellows from Kansas and points
South were rather of the frame of mind
that they'd "sooner be back home, but they
enjoyed the snow never-the-loss. A delightful time was had by a number of daring souls who braved the elements to take
a jaunt to the Post Theater,, but they
woro right glad of the truck ride they
got back to the barracks.
' Now .the follows can get out-their skiig
and tobaggans and make merry in the,beauty
of winter, Thoy can be sure of one thing;
and that is that good old Santa Claus will
be able to use his reindeer for sure this
winter. Don't forget to "write him your
