Bates Pucksters Lose to Bowdoin

Thursday afternoon at the Arena. Bowdoin pushed Bates into the cellar Position in the State hockey series. The game, postponed because of Wednesday’s thaw, was played on poor ice, both teams being slowed up considerably. The first period showed the teams evenly matched, but in the second Parker of Bowdoin managed to slip a shot past Bob Violette, Garnet goalie, for the only score of the game. Parker and H. Thayer played a steady driving game for Bowdoin; while Cogan. Foster, and Captain White lead a flashing offensive on the Black and White goal which was stopped only by the effective work of the Bowdoin goalie, Howlnnd. Bob Violette played his usual excellent game as goaltender for Bates. The fight talk in the recent student assembly apparently stirred up the latent Bates spirits, for a large representative of men and women crowded into the Arena to respond heartily to the efforts of Max Wakely and” “Fat” Louder, cheerleaders. The Bates band offered several peppy numbers and topped oft* the performance with “The Bobcat”.
