Tourney Hopes (Contiuued from Page 1) ever, a loss along the way, follow- ed by a win, could put them in the situation of playing Friday and Saturday to win a state berth. Both teams entering Saturday's championship game will have won their first two contests and a Ta- coma berth. The third entry to the state will be the winner of the losers bracket, also played on Sat- urday night. From the local standpoint, Men- roe rests pretty well. Arlington isn't expected to outgun the Lyn- den favorites. Should Monroe lose Monday, they would most likely face Arlington Wednesday night-- a team they dumped twice during the regular season. The Bearcats are expected to stay alive until Friday, at least. Ferndale and Mr. Baker ended in a tie for second spot of Whatcom--it is safe to as- same .they are of equal strength and the choice of one over the other would be mere guess. Take the lower bracket. In it lies Twin City, a team that dealt the 'Cats the coup-de-grace twice this season; Oak Harbor, usually a great tpurnament team; and the Mr. Baker-Ferudale winner. Oak Harbor and the Winner of Mr. Baker-Ferndale meet in the other bracket also. The Bearcats can look to Lady Luck for getting the loser .of the two, which pre- samably will be the less talented. However, looking at the team pairings, the loser of the Mr. Ba- ker-Ferudale clash might not be the loser afterall--they will go to the upper bracket. , For some three years now the Bearcats have lamented the draw that have shoved them into an 'opening game with the toughest of tough. In each instance their open- ing opponent traveled to Tacoma while the locals stayed home. This may be the year. The draw is in their favor. The team looked mighty fine in their last outing at Oak Harbor. They appear to be at full strength with the return of Bonga. But the bubble that makes basketball so popular can be burst 'AGE CHE Programs on work at the Homer Toberman Settlement House in San Pedro, Calif., were featured at cir- cle meetings of the Methodist Woman's Society of Christian Serv- ice last Wednesday.
