LIMBERING UP Six members of the United Major Bowling League, which rolls at Fifth Street Alleys, volunteered to dramatize the coming opening of the bowling season by posing as "patients" to have their good right arms limbered up. Cliff Young, in the role of trainer,w administers in order to Carl Krankel, Lee Rothgerber, Bill Gambert, Tommy Howe and Don Hasselbach. Bowling Leagues Tune Up As Start of Season Nears That rumbling sound you hear these early fall evenings isn't thunder in the distance. It's the advance guard of Louisville's 12,000 bowlers tuning up for the coming season. Most leagues have already organized and by the second week in September the firing will have just about reached its top volume. The 12,000 figure placed on Louisville's bowling fraternity is an estimate of league membership only, it includes both men's and women's leagues, but it doesn't include the uncounted numbers who enjoy non-league bowling in the Louisville alleys and those in Jeffersonviile and New Albany. INCREASE John L. Sullivan, secretary of the Louisville Bowling Association and vice president of the American Bowling Congress, looks for a continued increase in Ken-tuckiana bowlers. Last season topped all previous marks in tl. number of men and women enjoying the sport, with the women bowiers showing the greater increase. The expected influx of new members this season is likely to cause some congestion of alleys here and there. So the addition of 16 new ones at Thelmal is looked upon as a welcome addition to the miles of hardwood in the city. Sullivan an ardent advocate of the movement that is taking hold over the country to organize bowling leagues among high school students. The idea is now being studied here and may re-suit in the formation of a number of leagues which will add a new competitive sport to the high school schedules. Although a number of summer leagues have been swinging during the hot months, managers at all the major alleys have taken time out to resurface their alleys in accordance with A.B.C. specifications. Many halls have been dressed up with paint jobs and improvements added for the convenience of patrons. A newcomer to the league ranks 10 ' 13 Detroit Plays Cubs Today The Detroit Wolves and the Louisville Cubs. No. 1 team of the Negro Southern League, will play a double-header this afternoon at Parkway Field. The first game starts at 1:45. ! The Detroit nine, under the leadership of Hank Kigney, will present a star-studded lineup, including Billy Ball, sensational one-armed outfielder; Red House, homerun-hittmg third baseman, and Cecil Kaiser, stellar left- handed pitcher who formerly i s pastimed with the. Homestead js Grays of the National League. ! Kaiser and Long Time Jeffer- son will be on the mound for the Wolves Sunday, with Mackey and Meyers receiving. j Manager Felton Snow of the js fibs will denend on Leftv Dor- ! iflr onH PaH MrttiHT-H f Ar Vi i o L i mound work with Early Bird j i ' :t , Ellison and Bill Barney receiving, j J. V f e 1 r H iiuw no ine cull INlf nave me car: John L. Sullivan Expects banner season may be the Southern Indiana traveling league, which is in I process of being organized. Bowlers in New Albany, Jeffersonviile and several other nearby localities have been working up the idea and the new league is expected to be doing business by the time the season gets into full swing. BREAK According to Sullivan the bowlers will get a much better break this season, owing to the availability of items that have been in short supply due to post-war demands. New pins, made of more select wood, have been coming on the market and the alleys here have been taking advantage of the new supply to replace rundown equipment. At Central Alleys 15 leagues are already filled and two more are nearly formed. A good season is in prospect at Landohr with most of the leagues organized. Columbia reports all leagues filled with the exception of four opening's at 9 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays. All teams are in good shape at Banner with a full start scheduled for September 1. Broad-brook's alleys have been thoroughly reconditioned with league organization at a brisk clip. Park-moor will inaugurate a five-o'clock shift this season, running on .Tuesdays. Wednesdays and Thursdays. Madrid and Vernon have the organization of leagues in good shape, ready to open firing September 1. At Fifth Street, home of the United Major League, all the old leagues have organized and a new one, which plans to roll on Sunday afternoons and mav adopt the name of "Sunaft." is ready to start rolling September Harvesters 12 Bombers 11 Shively 9 Beechmont A.
