Harlemites at Dysart
Dysart,Ia.--The New York Harlemites, colored clowning five, willbe seen in action at the Dysart high school gym on Friday night at 8 o'clock against the Dysart American Legion quintet. The harlemites' antics will be led by a former Globe Trotter star, Pedro Boyd, who has played pro basketball for the past 10 seasons and is rated one of the finest long shot artists in the game. Boyd will be teamed with Flash Frazier, Chicago clown who is playing his 12th season on the road. In the pivot spot will be Lanky Gooding, Toledo, O., Abe Laster, Columbus star playing first season on the road, and scrappy Spud LeRoy, Daayton, O. complete the team. As an added attraction with the Harlemites, Coach Bobby Grund will send seven foot, seven inch Rayford (Bombo) Johnson, playing his second season of basketball. Bombo, who has trouble controlling his large frame at times, usually plays a few minutes in every game.
