Premontre Trips Sturgeon Bay in Overtime 54-50 Kroner's Three Free Throws Settle Issue By JIM ROBERTSON STURGEON BAY (PG) It took an overtime session to settle the game between the evenly matched teams of Sturgeon Bay and Green Bay Pre- montrt here Tuesday night. the Cadets using the free throw line to extend the issue and then winning the same way, 54-50. Gary Kroner stepped to the line with 45 seconds remaining and dropped in two free throws to tie the game at 50-50, then added three more in the overtime session to register the individual heroics for Ted Fritsch's visitors. The Cadets resume against their traditional rivals, the St Norbert Squires, at Premontre gym Thursday night After Kroner's free throw ing accuracy had tiea tne game up, the Clippers worked the ball for a deciding goal but Dick Feuerstein's attempt with five seconds left bounded off the rim to push the game into overtime.

After all but saying he had decided to put his National League team in little Wrigley Field, Dodger President Walter O'Malley appeared before the Memorial Coliseum Commis sion Tuesday with a new idea for getting his athletes into the 101,000-seat stadium. Came l'p Before It was actually O'Malley's first appearance before the commission, but the question of renting the Coliseum to the Dodgers had come up several times before, with uniformly inconclusive results.

(AP Photofax) Carl Hopes for Nod Over Central, Then Manty Defeat By LEE REMMEL "Wishing will make it so . . ." If such be the case, it will be a big weekend for East High's Carl Sunby, who has been whistling this ballad with un accustomed vigor all week in the. hope his two "wishes" will be granted by Dame Fortune. Carl, whose Red Devils have designs upon the Fox River Valley Conference champion- snips, summed them up in ords and East is riding at 3-1 heading into the back-to-back program which will send all Valley entries into action both Friday and Saturday nights. What are the chances he'll get his first wish? "I haven't had a chance to see tbem this season so it a little hard to tell," ,Sunby confided, "but if we rebound the way we can and play ball, we'll be all right.

Dale Vogel missed a shot and the Cadets again had possession Anbther deliberate foul on Kroner gave the Cadets their final point as time ran out The game was close all the way, the widest spread being Premontre's 30-24 edge late in the first half. The first quarter had ended with the Cadets holding a slim 12-11 lead and they added one point to the margin the second period for a 30-28 half time score. The Clip-i pers tied the score five times in the third quarter but still trailed 42-39 at the end. Puts Clippers Ahead Feuerstein found the range the fourth quarter and his three field goals put the Clip pers into the lead for the first time, only to see Ron (Bert) Bertagnoli match the output and give the Cadets a 48-47 lead with two minutes to play, Gary Starr scored and Feuer stein added a free throw for a 50-48 Bay lead before Kro ner applied his heroics. Both teams were off on their shooting and were guilty of loose ball handling. Each made 18 of 29 free throws with Premontre's slim edge coming on a 18-10 field goal margin, although superior rebounding on the part of the Cadets was the real story of the game, j PRKMONTRI STIR.

' It would call for a 300-foot right field foul line, a 250-foot left field foul line and a center field wall 440 feet from home plate 'at the farthest point. There would be a 40-foot screen over the short left field wall, to preclude cheap home runs, and a e-ioot lence in center field.

Elroy is the second Ram star to compose his swan song in the past two weeks. Veteran quarterback Norm Van Brock-lin was the first If there was a turning point in Elroy's career, it came be fore the 1951 season, when he suffered a depressed fracture of the cheekbone in an exhibi tion game. The injury damaged his coordination and a doctor advised him to quit football. Proof Was Eloquent Although at first he was. un- able even to catch a lob pass, Elroy decided to prove he wasn't finished. The proof was eloquent." In 1951, he was the NFL's leading pass receiver.
