The opening contest will see the junior varsity teams of the two schools in action starting at 7:30 o'clock, with the varsity cagers meeting in the nightcap attraction. • Two Good Games Prom tf indiealions bolh of the games loom as naturals. It. wil mark the first time that the junior varsity quints have met on- the floor and the local aggregation will almost completely be composed of sophomores. This contest should bring out'some mighty fine work and quite a lot of interest is being manifested in this battle. The varsity; battle should be one well worth sitting in on. Hanover to date has played three games, winning two and losing one. They defeated .Frederick High and Me- Sherrystown while losing .to;. Waynesboro. In the three games they 'have averaged 30. points a game which leads one to believe tlies ihave.a real scoring machine. Have Won Two Hagerstown in their opening game defeated Frederick High by a .20 to 12 score and then came right .back to knock off Charles Town High by a 28 to 21 score. Coach Semler . and Assistant -Coach Widmyer have been working hard witVthe Maroon and Gray squad honing out the rough spots •that were brought to.'light in their two previous games , and tonight -the boys, should be on edge for : their Pennsylvania rivals. In all probability the Maroon and Gray five will take the floor with the same lineup that started against Charles Town, namely, Kendall and Scott at forwards; Loy at center, and Hoopengardner and Hartle at guards.

Equals Record It is not surprising ..that War Admiral rates as one of the most popular turf attractions since the : days.of Man O'War. firstly, the racing public, loves a winner. And, the colorful colt carrie the blood of a "super-horse." He equalled the American mile and a half record of 2:28 3-5 in the Belmont stakes despile injuring one of his priceless feet and leaving a. trail of blood around the liatk. Then be is considered on Ihe small side, but has a mighty heart. Lean George Conway, a mild- spoken veteran with a half-century of racing experience, assisted Louis ?eustel in Ihe Iraining of Man O'War and has.received Ihe praise o! the turf world for his masterly nursing of War Admiral through lis brilliant past season. Needs a Warmup "The Admiral Weighs between 1,025 and 1,060 pounds and is In air condition right this minute. He stands 15 hands, 2% inches high, s solid and healthy and has put on ome weight. I figure -he'll get down to about 1,000 pounds racing weight. He is galloping soundly and there are no traces of his Belmont stakes injury.

Freddie Steele can compare his experiences with Heavyweight Champion .Toe Louis. Of course Joe wasn't champion when Schmeling nudged him out ot there, but he was so close to it, that winning it merely meant the formality of meeting Braddock. The outcome probably will be a big outdoor fight in the Madison Square Garden bowl in summer, another "grudge fight" between Fred Apostoli, the knocker-out and Mister Steele, the champion and knockee. When these two meet again, the record for a gale for middleweights surely will be broken. The biggest gate ever attracted by the 160- pounders stands at $375,000—and it was set when Mickey Walker fought Harry Greb.

Back well established In the minds of the fans who saw that bruising battle the other night In the Garden. You'd think Ihe way the two fought that they-spenl their; hours oul of Ihe ring Ihinklng up ways lo poison Bui thai isn'l how each other. it is. The "grudge" between Sleele and Aposloli is an affair between their managers. The two fighters themselves are friendly outside the ring, though they punch each other plenty when the gong sounds. Big Gate in Prospect It seems that Larry White, manager of Apostoli, and Ihe lale Dave Miller, who made Sleele the champion, feuded many years ago. Miller vowed he never would give a fighter managed by White a shot at Freddie's tille. And while he lived he .didn't. After his death. Billy Papke in 12 rounds, but Iwo months laler he knocked oul the Illinois Thunderbolt in 11 rounds. For a long time the middlo- weighls were so inconsislenl lhat a half dozen men claimed the title —Jimmy, Clabby, Eddie McGoorty, Frank Jack Klaus, Dillon. Eddie Miller manager, and became finally Freddie's consented (after three years of haranguing, importuning, publicity and defis) to give Apostoli a fight, but stipulated it musl be over Iho weight. When Aposloli and Sleele meet again, us they no doubt will because the gate for such a fight would set Steele on Easy Street whether he won or not, Aposloli of course will be the favorite. But. middleweights are slrange people, and I wouldn't bet too much thai Aposloli could repeat his smashing knockout victory over Steele, even though the champion was Ihor- oughly beaten .before the referee stopped the fracas in the ninth •onml. Ketchel and Papke Middleweights have a way of be- ng inconsistent, and that went for Stanley Ketchel, one of the greal- esl Ihe class ever had, excepting, i season Ha>'i!l have a George Chip and Mike Gibbons. They were all good fighters. Neither Sleele rior Aposloli appears to be a great champion, but one or the other may fool you. No bets!
