A keen interest was taken by all the girls in a friendly game of basketball played on 6th July, between the Typists and Ticket girls. The day was everything one could wish for: plenty of sun and no wind.
The girls all played very well. Typists scored the first two goals, then Ticket girls, making the score 4–4. Two penalties against the Tickets made the score 6–4 first spell.
Refreshments which were provided by Mrs. Haslam, Miss Whitcombe and Mr. Hill, were greatly appreciated.
In the second spell Typists threw three goals, but the Ticket girls gained one penalty only, making the final score 12–7.
The game, which was refereed very ably by Miss Clark, was fast and quite exciting. Mrs. A. M. Haslam, Misses B. McQueen, M. Whitcombe and Mr. F. K. Porteous were among the onlookers.
