N^wa^k Centers quint, 55-46, last night, on the Academy annex court. The Legionnaires played much better basketball than had been expected, as most members of the team had not played since about mid-December, with the exception of two or three practice sessions. Thev found little to inspire them in the small number of fans present, which was about the same as the low customer figure set earlier m the season. But the local cagers refuse to abandon their faith in the number and willingness of local cage enthusiasts, and plan more local contests m the weeks to come. They believe that before the season end's fans will be on hand in sufficient hundreds to enable the quint to at least break even on expenses. Although the first half ended \\'th the Legionnaires on the short end of a 23-25 score, the cagers proved their mastery of the situation \\hen, m the verv early thud quarter Mason triggered a sudden chaige with a goal, followed by thiee successive and rapid scoring tosses by Frantel. One each was then made by Craugh, Beals, Lord and one again by Frantel. The Centers were barely able to eeke out three points during the period, nhich ended with the locals leading 39-28. Although the visiting Centers managed to accumulate 18 points during the expected last period drne, they did not come within seven points of the Legionnaires. The pros had their second team on the court during a sizeable portion of the fra/ne, during which Beals, m a surprise demonstration of basket accuracy, sank the last five successive tosses of the game Frantel led the Legionnaires with 15 points, three of which v ere made in four free throw attempts. Beals followed with 14, and Lord with 11. Wage was high scorei for the v isitors with 12, followed by Palermo with nine.

The Academj quint has lost one and \\on one in the two league contests played previously The Academy's surprise loss to Waterloo, 40-35, last Fnday. considerably reduced its chances of qualifying for the sectionals. However, a victory over Geneva, tonight, would gieatly improve its position in the league race. Coach Frank Frantel has been putting the \arsity squad through intensive drills, and is continuing to emphasize basket accuracy, a major -weakness of the qumt this season. However, his cagers shovved considerable improvement in a Finger Lakes-Wayne leagues' conference match with Newark, on the annex court last Tuesday, when the locals downed the visitors, 31-25. The usual string is expected to start for the Academy tonight, featuring Dick Rodney, Nel Saeger, Bob Salsich, Bob Fox, and line-up last night was Don Marsh, recently discharged from Armj sen, ice.

Entirely aside from any disagreement with the disputed verdict, the editors apparently were shocked most of all by the sudden disintegration of the heavv weight champion. Although a large majority of the writers said they thought Louis would -iefeat Walcott decisively next time they meet, they agreed in handing the unenviable "flop of the year" title to the champ. Choice of Louis was not unanimous. In fact it probably would have been a lossup between the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals for "most disappointing performance" if the heavyweight fight had not resulted in such a commotion. fiun in48 hours- New pcvcr for your BUICK j Today's Power, Today's Performance, Today's Zip - for Buicks up to Ten Years Old!
