The High School basket ball
team of boys were in Oklahoma
City, Friday and Saturday, at-
tending the district tournament.
The four towns with the largest
population were matched with
the teams from the smaller
towns and Luther had to play
Norman High. This was a close
game and until within a few
minutes before the game ended
the score was 24 to 21 in favor
of Luther—and Bill Donald hurt
his ankle and Maurice Crum was
knocked out—the final score was
31 to 24 in favor of Norman.
Norman then played Edmond
and won by a score of 51 to 11.

basket-ball games for this seas-
on and they are now turning
their atention to base-ball.
