B2 a d e f g THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY MORNING. MARCH 5, 1952 Belmont Only Repeater on A II -Public Five By HAL FREEMAN The Public Conference's first four and sixth leading scorers comprise the 1952 All-Public basketball team, selected for The Inquirer by the 16 conference coaches. Joe Belmont, Northeast's conference scoring champion with 206 points in nine circuit clahes; Over- brock's Hal Lear, runnerup with 161 points: Mastbaum's Jay Norman and Ben Franklin's Claude Gross, tied for third with 160 each, and sixth- ranked Ron Mitz. West Phila delphia, who had 152, are on the honor quintet. . The All-Public five, along with the All-Catholic and All-Interaca demic quintets and their coaches and parents will be honored Mon day at the seventh annual Inquirer Gold Basketball Award Dinner at the Warwick.. The conference's fifth highest pointmaker, Bartram Irvin Rober-son (159), was named to a second- team berth. BELMONT REPEATER Belmont, 5:11, is a repeater from the 1951 team. Norman, first player in Mastbaum history to gain All- Public football ranking (named to last fall's team as end) also is the first from his school to win All-Pub lic court honors. Norman, Mast haum's student body resident, is 6:02. Belmont not only is a brilliant scorer. He is much furtner advanced than the conference's other players as a playmaker, passer and dribbler. Rugged Norman combined outstanding backboard work with his point-making. Lear, 5:10, was the offensive sparkplug of a hot and cold Hill-topper five. GOOD ON BOARDS Gross, 6:04 junior, provided Franklin with backboard control as well as so many points. He is an outstanding team player. Mitz, 6:01, often bore West Philadelphia's offensive burdens alone. He excelled as both an outside and inside shooter. Most of the conference's coaches attached letters to their ballots declaring that since the schedule now has them playing only six other teams in the conference, they were looting only for players in their sections or against whom their teams had played. Hence, Belmont was named to 14 first-team ballots and riot mentioned at all on two coaches' selections. This pair of mentors said they could not name him since they had not seem him in action. All-Public Conference Teams Lovellette, Groat On UP 'All' Team NEW YORK. March 4 (UP). Six-foot-nine Clyde Lovellette, of Kansas, the leading scorer in the major college ranks, was the outstanding choice on the 1951-52 United Press All-America basketball team announced today. Dick Groat, of Duke; Chuck Darling, Iowa: Cliff Hagan, Kentucky, and Mark Workman, West Virginia, were the other players selected in Nation-wide pool of more than 200 sports writers and radio broadcasters. The mythical team thus was made up of two players from the South, one from the midwest, one from the midlands, and another from the border State of West Virginia.

Cify Championship standing scholastic players as La Salle's Charles (Buddy) Donnelly, now La Salle College's court captain; West Catholic's Ernie Beck, now a prolific pointmaker at Penn; La Salle's Tom Gola. a freshman sensation in every offensive and defensive department with La Salle College's team this season, and John Wallin, St. Thomas More's heady Lguard who's now a freshman at St. Joseph s College. Donnelly won the award in 1948, Beck in 1949, Gola in 1950 and Wallin last year. In Friday's title clash, which will follow the Lincoln-St. Thomas More consolation game that starts at 7:30 P. M., the college mentors will have a large list of standout players. West has two All-Catholic performers, 6:05 Walt Maxwell and 6:04 Joe Sturgis along with such outstanding players as'Captain Ed Williams, Marty Milligan, Charles Sing-ley, Jim Smith, Bill Lindsay and Jo.e Gardler. All have been turned into polished performers by coach Jimmy Usilton, Jr., in his first season at the Burrs' helm. Smith, a reserve, outshone the more heralded players in the dramatic 50-46 triumph over previously-unbeaten St. Thomas More. Any of this quintet coached by young Billy Nelson, ex-Temple star in his first year as a mentor, is liable to blossom into the city title clash's brightest star. JOHN W. METERS Meyers Named Souderton Coach John W. Meyers, football coach and faculty member at LaSalle High School the past three seasons, has resigned, effective at the close of the school year in June, to become grid mentor at Souderton (Pa.) High in the Bux-Mont Con f erence LaSalle's ath-1 e t i c office made the an noun cement yesterday. A graduate of State Col lege High and S u s q u e -hanna Uni versity, where he quarter-backed the football teams, Meyers coached five years at Cooper (Pa.) Township, four at Shamokin and four at Ambler before coming to LaSalle. In 1943-44, he was a Red Cross recreational director in the South Pacific. Meyers had unbeaten teams at Cooper (1938) and Shamokin (1941), but enjoyed phenomenal success at Ambler, another Bux-Mont school. From 1945 through 1947, his teams there were unbeaten in 34 conference games and won the crown each of the three years. His Ambler clubs won 38 of 40 contests and averaged 34 points per game. At Ambler, Meyers developed Earl Mundell, who set a National high school scoring record of 311 points. Mundell later played at Penn State. Sacred Heart Trips Wildwood Cath., 60-48 Sacred Heart defeated Wildwood Catholic, 60-48, in a return South Jersey Catholic League high school basketball game last night on the winners' court at Vineland. The victory, paced by Bill Martini's 24 points, gave first-place Wildwood a final 6-2 league record. Sacred Heart (5-2) can tie for the championship by beating Gloucester Catholic in its final game. No date has been set for the contest, post poned earlier in the year because of the illness of Gloucester players. CONSENSUS (Copyright, 1952. Tnanne Fubllcations. Inc.)

Most cars lead a double life, A good part of the time, they're running errands, taking children to school, tak- ing women to stores, taking men to work, taking family and friends to clubs and social functions. It doesn't call for a very great output of horsepower for duties like these. But there are times when you want a car that can do vastly more, and these are the times when you'll want what this year's Roadmaster has to offer. Beneath its proud hood, there's a Fireball 8 Engine a valve-in-head that can let loose 170 lively horsepower when needed. And alongside this engine there's also an Airpower carburetor which thriftily feeds fuel and air through two smaller-than-usual barrels for normal driving which means that you now use less gas at 40 than you'd formerly use at 30. But there are two barrels in reserve waiting for you to call them into action and they let loose a soaring rush of power that sinks your shoulders back into the seat cushion, swoops you past a truck out of a tight spot up a hill sets your speedometer needle to registering added miles more than twice as fast as your watch can tick off the seconds. This is an experience you certainly should know firsthand. You should also know how Buick's Power Steering provides a helping hand in slow-motion maneuvers lets you keep the "feeP' of the car in straightaway driving. And just for good measure this 1952 Roadmaster also has the biggest brakes of any postwar Buick the greatest trunk space since spare tires moved off the front fenders a warning light that glows when the parking brake is set and to top it all, the smartest interior fabrics that Buick has ever offered. When are you coming in to look this distinguished performer over? We urge you to make it soon. Equipment, aeeenories, trim and models art wubjtet to chanQ without node.
