The Cincinnati artists, who won the
Ohio Conference basketball championship last year with one of the best
teams in the North, have already set
sail for another championship season.
Last Saturday night they quelled the

their practice periods have been spent
intermittently in beating strong independent teams around Cincinnati.
Although the Wildcats have not re

have shown to good advantage in
practice sessions, but they will have
to improve appreciably by tomorrow
night, if they expect to cope on equal
terms with the Ohio aggregation. In
