Star Product Of
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Feb. 9.-George
C. Spradling, Western Conference
high scorer in basketball, captain of
the Purdue basketball team, and re-
garded as the Big Ten's premier for-
ward ,this season, is a true product
of Hoosierdom's greatest winter sport
activity. Born and bred in Frankfort,
the high school of which holds the
state basketball championship, Sprad-
ling was well known to Hoosier bas-
ketball fans before he came to Purdue
Spradling's high scoring ability be-
came pronounced early in his high
school career, when he was an out-
standing star at Frankfort, and he was
a great forward when he entered Pur-
due. Naturally, he was a brilliant
performer on the , freshman varsity
team his first year in the university
and came fully up to expectations in
his sophomore year, when he led the
Conference in scoring.
In his junior year he returned to
school late on account of illness, and
played in only seven games, but still I
managed to finish with the first seven
scorers, and also aided materially in
putting Lambert's team in first
division after a bad start.
Spradling is apparently crowning
all of his previous achievements this
year. He has been outstanding since
the start of the season, jumping to the
Iore in scoring at the very first,
Against Chicago he was given a sev-
ere test by the Maroon guards, but
nevertheless scored sixteen points,
and his brilliant performance was vit-
al in the victory which his team scor-
ed. He will be a marked man the
rest of the season and it will be in-
teresting to watch his progress.
The Frankfort youth is also a foot-
ball letter winner, and steps the half
milein track in 1:56, putting him in
the select all-around athlete class
of the university.
ILL-CMP US HANDBALL
Play in the all-campus handball
league has been slowed up considera-
bly due to the final examination
period, and matches must be played
today in both the singles and doubles
In the team pairings Ramsey-Jones,
7069, must meet Mazer-Segal, 3540, in
the second round of the lower bracket.
Brody, 3317, will play Eardley, 9245,
hn the singles.
Only two teams remain undefeated
[n the upper bracket of the doubles.
Olian-Reilly, 8417, will meet Buchan-
an-Simonsky, 7939, to decide which
team is to enter the final match. The
tournament willsprobably be decided
within the next few weeks.
Mrs. A. S. Hobart, of the office of
the dean of women, entertained a
group of heads of league houses yes-
terday afternoon at tea at 923 Olivia
street. This was the first of a series
of teas which Mrs. Hobart is giving
during the month of February for
heads of league houses, the purpose
of which is to discuss their common
interests in an informal way.
