In the second game of the girls’ state basketball tournament, Hartley lost a close contest with Guthrie Center, 29-27. Hartley’s usually strong offense was held in check by the Guthrie Center girls, pre-tournament defensive favorites. Amy Brehmer, high scorer of the 1944 state tournament, was held to 11 points.
With the close of Saturday night’s business the Swanson Grocery ceased operating in the Fick building. That location was taken over by Herm Fick, former Hartley grocery man. The Swansons planned to reopen their store as soon as possible in a new location.
