troit Central meets Kalamazoo Cen-
tral in W"aterman gymnasium. The

the best quintets in high school cir-
cles1throughout the state.
Teams Have Met Twice
The two teams have met twice this
season, the first game played at Kala-
mazoo, being taken by the Celery city
lads by a 23-21 count, while the sec-
ond, played at Detroit, was won by the
Blue and, White, the secre being
While neither team has a direct
claim on the state championship, it is
conceded among- basketball fans that
these two aggregations are the best,
and had there been a tournament, the
fight would probably have centered

The Kazoo boys play a massed five- I
man defense game, the same type of
battle put up by M. A. C., while Cen-
tral plays a loose defensive game, sim-
ilar to the tactics used by Ohio State
against the Wolverines.
While both quintets are composed of
five individual stars Centrals chances
will probably depend on the work of
Walmoth at right forward and E. and
B. Smokiewicz at guards. For Kala-
mazoo, VerMeulen at right forward is
fast, and an excellent shot, while
Boerman at center is a rangy man on
the floor and good on long shots.
Stevenson of Michigan will referee
A preliminary game will be played,
beginning at 7:15 between the Fresh-
men and Company A of the First regi-
ment, inter-company champions.
