Kern Air Base Squad Needs Grid Supplies OUTSTANDING FOOTBALL MEN ORGANIZING TEAM FOR SEASON SCHEDULE Thirty pigskin veterans out al Kern County Army Air Subbase have .started knocking each other around for possession of the ball in preparation for ,what they hope to be a schertule^'of interest to the entire county. The base, a satellite field of the Fourth Air Force, which has produced so many outstanding airmen in no satellite in the personnel ot its noted football players. It boasts such players as First Sergeant KmiJ Antoon, who played two years of varsity football at University of Missouri; Corporal Jake Miller, who did excellent work at Michigan State, and Technical Sergeant Larry Fried, who played for Brooklyn College and several eastern professional teams. The budding team is the brain child of Lieutenant Andrew V. McDonald and Rodney D. Briggs of Manhattan College and the University of Chicago, respectively, and who are expected to play stellar roles in the squad are Private George Atkinson, Private Beny Cohen, Staff Sergeant Herbert Bouchillon, Corporal Gerald MeCord, Sergeant Ar- Told Lewis and Corporal Ralph Carter. At the present times the line averages 190 pounds and the backfield 1S5 pounds. The commanding 1 officer of the field is Major Jay Montgomery who also played foot- hall with the Kantn, f'lara Broncos and who is interested in the pro- Dosed team. The greatest difficulty now faced by the pigskin lovers i.s the shortage of equipment which must be provided before the boys can bloom 'orth to give the base and the county a first grade ball club. This need has come to the attention of football fans, and since there s much equipment in Bakersfield which is not being used, it should not be a large problem to provide ihese grid artists with necessary !ield accessories. It has been suggested that those who have any equipment, which they would be willing to contribute .o the new club, contact Major Montgomery- at the base who will refer the matter to the proper persons. HEEL-AND-TOE — Hank Borowy kicks ball up with his heels, over his head atid into his glove—sometimes. A trick the Fordham right- hander la more interested in, how* ever, is pitching Yankees to another pennant • PISTOL CLUB TO MEET SEPT. 20 FIRST SHOOT ANNOUNCED *FOR OCTOBER 22 AT PARK Ernest Roux, recently elected sec- retary-trensurer of the Kern County Pistol Club at a reorganization meeting, announced today that the next meeting of the target club will be held September 20 at the office of Sheriff John Loustalot, starting at 8 p. m.
