The introduction of doublehead- ers was well received around the 10-team circuit with good size crowds attending the opening specials at Jim Thorpe and Sum mit Hill. Defending champion St. Mike's absorbed a 46-19 shellacking at the hands of St. Joseph's, Summit Hill, in the first of two on the Ginter floor, while St. Stanislaus, Summit Hill, walloped St, Ann s of Lansford, 50-15, in the nightcap. SS. Cyril and Methodius, Coal dale, a perennial contender in the league, spilled St. Joseph's of Jim Thorpe, 52-30, after St. Mary's of Coaldale, clouted Immaculate Conception, Jim Thorpe, 40-22, in the opener on the Jim Thorpe Junior High floor. First year mentor Mike Wargo was pleased as rookie Mike Pascoe lived up to expectations to lead St. Joe's to victory with a 20-point performance. Lone hold over, Jimmy Frey, contributed 12 points to St. Joe s total, which was piled up entirely from . the floor. The winners hit on 23 field goals, but failed to connect on a dozen free throws. They held St. Mike's to one foul goal in the second period and led, 20-5, at halftime. St. Joe's finished with two big periods to wreck Joe Chaballa's debut as St. Mike's coach. Five-foot-10 Gene Peltz poured in 28 points to personally direct Coach - Jake Kozuch's St. Stanislaus five over St. Ann's. The sole mainstay from last year's fine club hit on 14 field goals to keep his mates ahead from start to finish. St. Mary's, Coaldale, made an auspicious start on strength of Dave Lewis' 29-point scoring spree. Immaculate Conception didn't have a chance as the charges of the Rev. Frederick Loeper piled up a big 28-11 first half advantage to assure their coach a winning debut. Veteran George Stoffey used an effective one-hander from the corners for 22 points In sparking SS. Cyril and Methodious to its impressive start against Jim Thorpe. St. Jerome's, Tamaqua, visits Lansford tonight to make its debut against SS. Peter and Paul's. ST.

Period corinxt St. Joseph's 9 t IS M tjyru Jk Methadins 10 14 7 1361 Two Interesting documents bear ing on East Mauch Chunk's water supply were found yesterday in the Carbon County Courthouse. One is a copy of the minutes of two meetings of the East Mauch Chunk Borough Council (now part of Jim Thorpe) held in July and August, 1886. At the sessions, motions were unanimously adopted calling for a referendum on the question of acquiring the town's water system. At the first meeting. Aug. 9, 1886. was set as the date for a special election to vote on the proposal. At the August meeting, the motion was amended calling for the question to be decided at the Nov. 2 election. It was noted the amendment was adopted to save the borough the expense of a special election. The motion was made by Coun cilman F. C. Wildermute. , Voting in favor were Councilmen B. F. Kuehner, Philip Rader. Confiy Boyle and John Ryan. K The second document was a printed notice, copies of which were posted in public places. It announced consent of electors was being sought to borrow $15,000 to "provide a supply of water for the inhabitants thereof. Stray Bullet Hits Car Windshield A stray bullet from a hunting rifle struck the windshield of a car south of Saylorsburg on Route 12, according to a complaint by a Snydersville motorist. Frank Fitzgerald, driver of the car, told state police at Stroudsburg that the bullet struck the windshield on the driver's side but did not penetrate the safety glass. Glass fragments, however, hit Fitzgerald and his wife Mona who was seated beside him. Police have referred the matter to Game Protector John Doe-bling. East Stroudsburg. The notice set the assessed valu ation of the borough in 1886 at $217,612. It noted an indebtedness of $15,000 would approximate seven per cent , of the valuation. Oldtimers questioned last night could not recall the results of the referendum. However, it was pointed out, the borough never acquired ownership of the water system. " The two documents were discovered yesterday by Carbon County Prothonotary - Joseph Modrick as he "house cleaned" a drawer beneath the main counter in his office. The water question in East Mauch Chunk, (Jim Thorpe) reached the boiling point on Dec. 4 when fire destroyed an apartment building, making two fam ilies homeless. Firemen were hampered in their efforts to fight the blaze by lack of sufficient water and pressure.
