Al Cervi and his Nats figure they must win nil their remaining /our home games in order to pro-'| tect their leadership in the Eastern Division to the finish but, ns in other years, Philadelphia is standing In the way. Two of those games are with the Warriors, who are battling lor « playoff spot. The Philadelphians come back here again next Sunday afternoon when Silly Gabor will be paid special tribute. The Nats and Warriors are dead even in the season series at five- all and Al Corvl and his worthies know they have got to come through with nrt all-out e f f o r t to prevent the dangerous Phi lade l- phums from setting a War Memorial precedent.

Here are frequently: t. Win the Cleveland Indians rebound from t h e i r disastrous world series whitewash by the Giants and continue their 1954 dominance of the American League? 2. Are the Giants just a one- shot championship club that was lucky enough to keep Its team intact while their chief rivals were riddled by injuries? 3.

Great reputations meant nothing to the Bullet as the episode on the left-vividly shows. That's the widely-acclaimed Bob Cousy of Boston trying to escape annihilation as Billy leaps toward a field-goal for the Syracuse Nationals. The center picture shows Gabor, his face etched with determination, driving around Boston's Bobby Donham, while teammate Adolph Schayes looks on with seeming awe. On the right is the Bullet sinking a basket on his famed stop shot against the giant Sweetwater Clifton of the New York Knicks. Billy used to wear out a half dozen pairs of shoes a season on this type of play in which he drove down the court, hell-bent-for-leather and confounded his defender by coming to a sudden stop and curling the ball into the hoop. Uusually his opponent w e n t ' f l y i n g into the seats but Clifton anticipated this maneuver and still couldn't stop it. That bandage covers a badly bruised elbow, one of the many injuries Billy suffered because of his aggressiveness throughout his six dramatic years of uro basketball following an equally thrilling career at Syracuse University. Billy played only four games this season before hepatitis finally ended a glorious career. These are the moments basketball fans, both of the college and pro variety, will remember when they pay tribute to The Bullet at the Syracuse-Philadelphia game in the War Memorial March 6.

And they started a campaign to acquire a part of this section, and bring it back to life. For many months they negotiated with government agencies, writing, pleading, and convincing these agencies that they were sincere in their beliefs that the old canal should live again. And live it will, for armed with the legal approvals, and a sound determination to win, hundreds of sportsmen are giving their time and effort to make this dream come true, This is the Erie Canal project now being · completed by the sportsmen of Onondaga County. We expect to reZlood our section early this spring. Our Conservation Department is planning to put in small-mouth bass, large mouth bass, pike perch, blue gills, 1 and bullheads for the young! angler. Although we may be turned down, we are trying to get permission to allow a no-size, and a no-bag limit. Although some of our sportsmen may be much against this idea, we feel that it will keep the fish population at a proper level, so that they can acquire good size and not become stunted as so often occurs from over-population. As this project is in its infancy, we may have to make changes due to unforseen conditions that arise.
