With half the windows knocked out and the big doors hanging askew there's nothing to stop the old nor'easter from parading right through the place. But this will all soon be changed. It is our misfortune that the weather man had to push on the storm-button at a time like this when things are all more or less topsy-turvy. * * * * A Champ is Born L<Last week the Pine River cagers trotteqt through the sub-district tourney like as if it was all in a days work and the village dopsters having been laying odds ever since. Anyway tlfe Mattson basketeers created something of a sensation Friday evening of laj^t we i\ when they outsmarted Hie Sebeka boys of last year's championship f? me, moving about the floor like we 1-oiled robots, never taking a false turn. * * * * The school was in a bedlam Friday afternoon as 'buses-lined up to take students to the district tournament at Staples, where the Tigers met C-I. Anyway, everyone was keyed to a fever pitch and by the looks of things nothing this side of the Atlantic could h'ave kept them from the tournament. * * * * It isn't every year that an honor of this kind is brought to a village of this size but when it does the lid is off and you hear nothing but basket- l^ anil tournaments at every turn. llTIen the school board was aroused to its loyalty and conducted their meeting enroute to the games Tuesday evening so as not to miss a single play, ■y * * * * * Thanks Students have George Mahood and Arvid Lundin to thank for their free trip to the tournament Tuesday evening. These two gentlemen spent a day soliciting funds from local businessmen to finance the trip and make it possible for all of them to attend. ^ * * * * It's a tough job writing a column , when all you can thing of is mopping t,w derbis in a fire swept print shop and polishing off corroded and rusty machinery. Hope we' can get it out of our mind soon and can turn around without seeing something that has heen relegated to the ashpile. * * * » "Confucius Say" No typee, no pressee, no printee. .OCALS U- Psne River Toasts Its Cage CliampiSons Local Items *,. *wia , Pine River was turned over to these oVemy. :,t, clean-limbed boys and their coach, H.
