MONDAY, MARCH 3, 1947. THE OLLEY SEE UM OF SPORT Williamsport High School will be going aftei its second and possibly its third Class D statewide cham- piouship this week, but this time it will, be in basketball. It annexed the soccer crown and its chances of taking at least one of the cage girls will furnish the opposition for the Williamsport girls in their contest while Walkersville will oppose the WlUamsport boys in the opening round of the elimination series to decide a western shore champion. It would be quite a feather in the cap of the Williamsport High School athletic department if it could come through and make a clean sweep of both the boys and girls titles. ~ * * * It is understood that at least two teams have received bids to play in the Td-State Basketball Tourney to be held in Martinsburg on March 17. As far as this column knows the Uncle John's Cabineers and the Prospect Diners were invited to enter the tourney which will run three days with $100 cash prize going to the winner of the tourney and a ?50 prize going to the runners up. A total of 34 teams have beeu invited to enter the tourney but as yet no official list o! teams selected has been announced by the officials handling the tourney. « * » An offer from the American Legion Post at Charles Town to the Hagerstown Owls to use its playing field fo- their spring training has been received but the Owls management was forced to turn the invite down as the housing and play- ins facilities would not be available until April 1?. With the Saddle Pals holding a game lead m the City Basketball League over the Cabineers and with the season having but three more playing nights remaining in the second half the contests tonight and those carded for the 17th should decide the outcome. The Cabineers, winners of the first half, are down to meet the Saddle Pals on the last night of the second half, and if each team wins its next two games they win go into the final with a chance that the Cabineers can deadlock the race with a victory. Crowds have been enjoying the City League games this year and for the next three playing nights the Y. M. C- A. gym should be crowded to capacity. * * » Haven't seen any of those old fashioned horse drawn slefghs during this recent weather, but the birds are still on the job, so drop •out some feed for them today. . . .

Terry Moore, Whitey Kurowski and Marty Marion Report in Good Shape St. Petersburg, Fla., March 2 (/P) Storm signals are flying for the rest of the National League with the world champion St. Louis Cardinals coming back sounder and stronger after u series of off- season operations. Although the Red Birds escaped serious injuries during their stretch drive to' the National League pennant and world series victory, such key men as Terry Moore, Whitey Kurowski anil Marty Marion were playing out the string on little more than their nerves. Moore, captain oE the Cardinals, winced each time he threw his full weight on a swollen left knee. Vet he played every day in the last two weeks. Has An Operation Manager Eddie Dyer used Moore as a part-time player most of the season after he twisted his knee running out an .nfield roller in the exhibition season. Continual treatment failed to help, but Terry volunteered for duty when the going got hot in mid-September. Shortly after the series, Moore underwent an operation. Parts of the cartilage and several bone chips were removed. * "I did a little running on it the other day up in Columbus, Ga.," Moore related, "It didn't bother me, but I didn'u bear down very hard! So far it feels great. HI know for sure in two or three weeks." Kurowski's case was different. He played in. 142 games, or almost every day after h e ended a long holdout siege. However, his fielding was below par, his throwir"? was off and his batting lacked some of the old drive and power. Marion Is Better The veteran third baseman always thought pains in his elbow were the result of a childhood accident that left him with a partly crippled right arm. A visit to the doctor convinced htm he was wrong. Several bone chips were removed from the ailing elbow. "It feels almost like a new arm," Whitey enthused, "Last year it used to pain me every time I'd miss a hard swing or grip the bat too hard." Marion has been seriously handicapped by an aching hack"for the past season an a half. This year he passed tip several profitable business offers in St. Louis to re- turn to his family's cotton and cattle farm in Amitryville, S.C. After working around the farm for three months, Marty says his back feels the best it has for two years. "You can't tell about it," ne warned, "Feels. nne one day and then out she goes. Seems as though it always happens when I'm tired, late in the season, right when it hurts most. I'm keeping my fingers crossed." Soccer Champs Givenfrophy Clearspring Eleven Awarded S e m 1 e r-McFaddin Trophy at Victory Banquet The Clearspring Athletic Association soccer team was officially crowned champions of the Washington County League at, a victory banquet held at Sagles Restaurant in Hancock with over 60 members being present to enjoy a turkey dinner with all the trimmings.
