description:

This image scanned from the 1931-1932 basketball manager's book.

This image appears on page 118 of the 1932 Arbutus yearbook, and page 101 of the 1933 Arbutus yearbook.

It's interesting to note that in this image Hoffar appears to have forgotten to bring his basketball shoes with him on picture day and is instead wearing dress shoes. However, the image was later doctored and if one takes a look at the same image in the 1932 yearbook you will note the fact that basketball shoes have been added. In fact, it appears that the left foot of Weir on page 116 was used for the left foot of Hoffar.
