I. VAN CLEAVE LOUISBURG - There's a sign at the entrance of the Louisburg High gymnasium that reads: "Basketball is a game from which there emerges (sic) a victor and a near victor." Emerging victors in last night's opening round of the Class B district tournament at Louisburg were Gardner, Wellsville and Stanley. The Princeton Orioles were the nearest of near victors, losing to Garnder, 57-56, after making everyone in the house think they were going to win. Louisburg wasn't such a near victor though it scared Wellsville, which had a 21-point lead at halftime, before succumbing, 69-61. It would be difficult to agree with the sign where LaCygne was concerned, as the Indians, who couldn't beg or borrow a basket in the last quarter, were blasted by Stanley, 74-47. These developments set the stage for Thursday night's semifinals in which top-seeded Spring Hill meets Gardner at 7 and Wellsville plays Stanley at 8:30. Finals will be at 7 and 8:30 Friday night, with the top two teams getting regional berths. Coach Jim Pollom's Princeton Orioles were down 31-23 at halftime but looked like champs in a 25-point third quarter spree that put them ahead 48-44 to enter the final period. The Orioles were ahead 56-55 with 1:50 left, but Gardner's Earl Dolisi canned a fielder. Princeton's little Francis Wiederholt made another basket, but it didn't count because he either had stepped on the line under the basket or the man who had thrown the ball to urn traveled. Gardner had 13 points each from Dolisi and Bill Andrew. David Rukes hit 20 and John Sutton 18 for the Orioles.

Coach Al Williams leaves coaching for a grocery business career Sunday, unless the Eagles make a regional, and the Eagles had won only one game all season. But last night they showed the potential that put them within a point or two of half a dozen victories as they ran up a 42-21 score on Louisburg by halftime. Delon Jacoby sparked the Eagle scoring with a handsome 28-point performance, followed by Don Good with 13 and Dave Beasley with 12. Jacoby and Beasley were masterly on the boards and in shot defense, while Bill Coughlin and Gary Rader turned in good floor games and 10 and 6-point totals, respectively. The Louisburg hotshot, Lary Simmons led the Wildcats with 22 points, followed by Jerry McWilliams with 18. Louisburg gave the Wellsville fans a scare, pushing to within 5 points of the Eagles in the fourth. WELLS.-69 Coughlin .. Rader .. . Good .. .. Beasley . Jacoby .. . TOTAL • L'SBRG-61 Simmons ..

(Herald Photo) The Marooners of Stanley were one of the best-looking teams on the court last night as they rolled up the score on LaCygne with 44 points in the last half. Clifford Hunt was top scorer for Stanley with 21 points, but hefty Doug Jones, who looks as though he would be as much at home in Football guard slot, was a cool star as he added 19 points, cleaned up under the basket and fired sweet passes. LaCygne only trailed 30-26 at halftime but scored only 21 points, 8 of them in the fourth, to lag far back on the Scoreboard. Bill Allen led the Indians with 13 points, followed by Jerry Miller with 12 and Gene Mendenhall with 11.

PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP)— Casey Stengel explains the new strike zone in simple Stengelese: "If you ain't a high ball hitter it should help the pitcher, that is if you're a batter and weak on the high ball. If you're a pitcher who's wild it should help. "It don't mean its wider. It means its longer up and down, Far as the plate is concerned it's not any longer. It's just vertically, "If you're a low ball pitcher. it didn't change the low ball. Maybe it helps some pitchers who walk men. Maybe it makes them a strike better off." All this is by way of saying that baseball's greatest single master mind, the manager of the New York Mets, is confused over the effect of raising the top of tb* '# strike zone from below the »rm>, pits to above the shoulders, lowering it from above the caps to the kneecaps
