PAGE SIX THE DAILY MESSENGER, CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. WKl'NgSDAY, JANUARY 1, J948_ Varsity-JV Cagers Prepare For Games/ Waterloo, Friday The Academy varsity cagers, preparing for their second and a crucial contest on the Finger Lakes league schedule, at Waterloo, Friday evening are today at .the midway point of a less than ·i-«ojr.ipn«r "rocrrrini of pxtra hard- paced practice sessions. However, calculating to avoid a dangerously vigorous and intense reconditioning effort, the varsity players gathered at the Academy annex gym for two occasions of workouts during the week preceding the resumption of school. The principal efforts of the varsity coach, Frank Frantel, are being directed toward developing still better aggressive actions, faster breaking away, and greater basket accuracy. He said today that the entire team, fully aware of the importance of running off another victory, Friday, is participating with the utmost seriousness and determination. Adverse factors appearing at the start of the second school term, Monday, was the illness of Bob Fox, plagued u-ith a bad attack of grippe throughout the entire vacation, and a bad cold which ·forced the limitation of Dick Rodney's workouts 10 no more than the lightes,. activity. Physician's orders had compelled Fox to keep off the hardwood until Monday. The varsity's show of court ·'iri'jsse and strength in its last same, when it defeated Penn Yan, ·41-23, has greatly encouraged the hope that the team can finish the league schedule qualified for participation in the sectionals, according to Frantel. He said the quint is well on its way to acquiring the coolness and easy confidence that is necessary for even the best of teams to win. The J-Vs, coached by Edwin Draper, are also reported to be rapidly resuming the pre-vacation condition they had acheived in winning four out of five contests so far this season.

JP)-- Ben Hogan left town yesterday, having accomplished the following feats in the game of golf: Won the §10,000 Los Angeles open for the third time. Established a new record for the tournament at the Riviera Country Club w i t h a 72-hole score of 275." Turned back the initial threat of 1948 of South African Bobby Locke and the rest of the foreign invaders. Featured an array of professionals and amateurs who attracted a record turnout of more than 40.000 during the four days of the 22nd annual Los Angeles fixture. He raked the par -71 Riviera course with four successive sub par rounds --68-70-70-67-- and staved off a challenge by former National open king Lloyd Mar.- grum in a round played in fog so thick the ball disappeared 50 yards after it was struck. Mangrum had a 279. Hogan collected $2,000 for first place, Mangrum $1,400 for second, and Ellsworth Vines, the one time king of the amateur and pro tennis worlds, finished third for §1,000. Tied one shot back were Sam Snead, who scrambled into the running with a 67. and Ed Furgol of Pontiac, Mich., who had a 73. Lagging behind was the pre- tournament co-favorite with Hogan, Bobby Locke, who finished with an embarrassing 76 for 287 and a $4.00 consolation prize. Tied " with Locke, one stroke back of Johnny Palmer of Badin, N. C-, and Dutch Harrison of Little Rock, were Johnny Bulla and Toney Penna. Low amateur honors fell to Frank Stranahan of Toledo, O., whose 70 put ,him in at 289, two strokes in front of Douglas Ford of Elmsford, N. Y., and three to the good over Bud Ward of Spokane, Wash.

DiMaggio Salary May Be Set; But No Figures Are Given Responding to what has been described as a very impressive indication of public sentiment, the local American Legion s pro eager* have decided upon another try at home games by scheduling a meet with the crack Newark Centers quint on the Academy annex court, next week, Thursday. Jan. 15. The crack local team, which includes such former collegiate stars as Frank Frantel, Jim Beals and Dick Baroody, has been idle since its fourth game of th_ season, early last December. Having booked such nationally outstanding clubs as last season's Detroit Gems of the National cage circuit, and the world's championship Renaissance .team of New York, as weli as the only slightly less prominent Kobler-Miller cag- ers of Buffalo, the local club decided to call it "quits" because of the lack of attendence ard resultant failure of revenue to meet costs. On only one of the four contests dH the receipts about equal the expenditures. A proposal t h a t the 'local post of the American Legion undciiakc a campaign to sell a sufficient number of ten-ticket books to f i n a n - cially guarantee the same number of contests for the balance of the season was considered inadvisable i at a meeting of the team, and Manager Bill Deveraux and Director T. Harland (Doc) Evans,' Mon- i day evening. The reason advanced j was 'the lateness of the season. : However, it was at -this session that the decision to play at least | two or .three additional local contests was made. It was also decided that plans for further contests would await the response to the initial contests. Should it be encouraging, and sufficient to enable the team to at least break even, the cagers expect to continue playing games here each week .until the end of the season. With one exception, the familiar names of Glenn Lord, Al Kaufman. Bob Craugh, Cliff Mason, Beals, Baroody, and Frantel will appear in the lineups. Johnny Baynes is said -to be unavailable, at least temporarily, because of other commitments. has been providing an almost sen- thy opponent in the Newark club, which, unbeaten so far this season, . sational showing throughout this area. The names of team members- Washburn, Wage, Huebler, Kishler, Palermo, Stiles, Minutillo, and i Heise, player-manager- have become familiar to many local cage fans, having appeared many times in the accounts of .the team's fast and neatly played victories. Several of the Centers' wins have been over teams which were previously favored by almost overwhelming of odds. The margin .by which they hold the first place position in the Tri- County cage league is already very nearly enough to be final for the season. The second teams of both clubs will .stage the preliminary event, which will start at 7:15 p.m. Admission rates have been set at seventy-five cents for adults, and forty cents for students and youngsters. Angelina Cagers At Top Place for First T Series The Angeline team took top place in the double round series of games just completed by the four- team junior A class basketball league of the local YMCA. The four teams will commence a second double round .series, Friday, with games scheduled between the Cannon and Wager teams, and the Angeline and Gosper teams. The final standings for the first series was: Angeline team, won five, lost one; Gosper team, won four, lost two; Wager team, won three, lost three; the Cannon team, lost six. The Angeline team's single 'le- fpat occurred in the f i n a l game of the series, when it was defeated by the Wager team, -16-33. The oiher contest of the final so! ond- ed by the Gosper team defeating Cannon, 38-11.
