C-I-INDEPENDENT (AM) PRESS-TELEGRAM (PM) Lm MM*. CKH.. Tlwri., ft*. V. I«M Perfecto With Bad Wrist! By DAVE TAYLOR Never givr a winner an even break. The boys in the Southern Cities All-Star loop learned that one the hard way last Sunday when they tossed a heer frame at league-mate Boh Bates who was in no mood to fool around. For Boh it had hren one of those weeks. The veteran 199-averaper had heen BOWLING ALONG suffering from a sore wrist, and to top it off when he went out to Southwest Bowl on Saturday to shoot team event in the Southeast District 8^_ City Tournament the best fie could hack was an anemic 560. By the t i m e Sunday rolled around Ihe last thing he felt like was going to Norwalk for more of the same in the Southern Cities action, but he went and this time it was for business. About the seventh frame of his first game Bob opened up and let fire a string of strikes that stretched through to the second frame of his third game -- 19 consecutives in all. When he'd finished tending to business Bob had topped Kevin Cannon's 299 season high game with a 300 and had added 10 sticks to George Shore's previous high series mark with a 734. He fired games of 239-300 and 195 with six strikes in the first heat, a dozen in the second and one in the third. That strike in the third game is where the boys of the All-Stars met their Waterloo, since they figured that after shooting a 300 Bob wouldn't be able to hit another strike if he backed up his ball with a steamroller, so they called a beer frame. One little statistical point they overlooked, however. Bob was shooting that frame on lane 28, and after a first ball spare on that alley he struck on . it every time up for the rest of the night. So, for Bob it was beer, and this time he didn't have to cry in it. * * * * BILL HAMBLY DESERVED to shed a few tears, though. With all the noise Bates was making with his perfecto and 734 cluster, folks hardly noticed Hanbly down there whacking away at the kegs to the tune of 243702. Following Hambly, Matt Bowcutt kicked in 254689, Chuck Varner 259-659 and Al Miranda, Jr. tossed 244-650. The league averaged 195 per man and three teams rocketed over the 3,000 series mark as M M Machine chalked up 3058. George Realty 3048 and Compton Bowl 3043. We don't Ilk* to sav wi told YOU to, but we, oh-V/hew, did those Greater Los Angclei Junior All-Star girls clobber the women All-Stars in that little encounter they had at Andy Mauich's Pro Bowl last Sunday! The shallackins was so bad In fact that Oottie Probed had to extend herself and hit a fantastic 277-690 iust to maintain the appearance that the Women Ait-Stars were really In competition with the juniors. The kids compiled a 3094 total, com- niele with 1156 high team game to take the series by 140 pins over the adults. Contributing to the carnage Linda Ben- nisn bombed 233-654, Inez Wallace VI- -. Gay Campbell fired 243-639, Betty Ann Friedman 213-401. Pat SchrepH S3: learn flames of 991-1042-941 while the imt Gloria Bagley '13. The women hit luiiori fired 1156-933 and 955. So what's this business about experience over youth? * * * * Marilyn Shortle took over TOP billing h the Lono Beach Woman's Bowling Assn.
