MURPHY'S Super Service Phone 613 Niagara St. The local 'American Legion pro m 0 "" tecJTT! to^^led ^hp N A ^'Rrk 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. They found little to inspire them in the small number of fans present, which was about the same as the low customer figure set earlier in 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 in the weeks to come. They believe (hat before the season ends fans will be on hand in sufficient hundreds to enable the quint to at least break even on expenses. Although the first half ended wrth the Legionnaires on the short end of a 23-25 score, the cagers proved their mastery of the situation when, in the very early third quarter Mason triggered a sudden charge with a goal, followed by three 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, which ended with the locals leading 39-28. Although the visiting Centers managed to accumulate 18 points during the expected last period drive, 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 frame, during which Beals, in 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 were made in four free throw attempts. Beals followed with 14, and Lord with 11.. Wage was high scorer for the visitors with 12, followed by Palermo with nine.

The Academy quint has lost one and won one in the two league contests played previously. The Academy's surprise loss to Waterloo, 40-35, last Friday, considerably reduced its chances of qualifying for the sectionals. However, a victory over Geneva, tonight, would greatly 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 quint this season. However, his cagers showed 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 Army service. He appeared during the fourth frame for the first time this season. Although he was among the shortest and lightest of the pro cagers. he displayed driving speed and cool movements. He dropped both of two foul shots during his brief participation in the affray. The pro quint will journey to Hornell next week Saturday, Jan. 24, for a match with the Mi-High' pros of that city, and the next Saturday, Jan. 31, to Elmira to meet the Moose pro team there. In the same period meantime the club hopes to be able to schedule at least one and preferrably j two contests to be played on the ' Academy annex court. | .Newark Legion Legion Frantel Beals Lord Mason Craugh Cravan Marsh Henderson Murphy Totals Newark Wage 6 0 12 Nuebler 3 1 7 , Stiles 0 0 0 | Palermo 4 1 9 Minutelo 2 2 6 McHugh 2 0 4 Keise 1 1 3 Gullo 1 1 3 Brown 1 0 2 Totals 20 6 46 Mike Kidder.

Those who had come to expect the Brown Bomber to make short work of all opposition were let down by his dull efforts against the 33-year-old challenger who twice knocked him down. Entirely aside from any disagreement with the disputed verdict, the editors apparently were shocked most of all by the sudden disintegration of the heavy weight champion. Although a large majority of the writers said they thought Louis would defeat 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 tossup between the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals for "most disappointing performance" if the heavyweight fight had not resulted in such a commotion. ··^---- New power for your BUICK!

Even if your Buick dates back as far as 1937, you can have a hoodful of factory-fresh Fireball power--a sleek new power plant that's the same as the engines going into the latest Buick cars. Everything about it is brand-new. A new carburetor and air cleaner help make every drop of fuel give up all its power. A new distributor, complete with vacuum and centrifugal advance, puts new snap in your getaway and new pep in all driving. A whole new wiring harness prevents electrical loss. And tucked in the flywheel housing is a new smoothie of a clutch that'll make driving more fun than ever, Yes, it's all new, with the latest Buick engine features you read about--like precision cylinder boring, Oil-Miser rings, Stratoflow cooling and so on. You can get a new engine like this because engine production is not held back by the shortage of sheet steel which limits complete-car production. So we're able to put one of these honeys into your car and make it young again--give it new power and performance that will get you set for thousands and thousands more carefree miles. t How much does it cost? Not nearly what you'd expect--often less than a comprehensive overhaul. And it's a mighty good investment because it makes your car worth so much more when it comes time to turn it in. Nice proposition, isn't it? Surely worth talking over. Won't you come in and let us give you all the details? K. A. RIGNEY 370 South Main St Canandaigua, N. Y.
