In a game characterized by much unnecessary roughness on the part of the Bates sophomore team, Edward Little High’s basketball team won last evening by a score of 30 to 18. From the start the college men, who greatly outweighed their opponents, showed a tendency to be rough and it was only natural that after a time that the fighting spirit in the younger men began to be manifested. One piece of work which was seen by practically everyone in the hall and which was dirty athletics in the extreme was when a large Bates man attempted to jump upon the head of a high school boy while he was on the floor.

Although Edward Little did not play her usual game, she had little difficulty in winning. The passing of both teams was about equal but the basket throwing of E.L.H.S. was far superior to that of the other team.

Increased space for living, therapy and recreation are among the features of a $320,000 renovation of the psychiatric unit at St. Mary’s General Hospital due to be completed at the end of this month.
