The g which clinched the title Ludington, also wound up [the season for the two teams. The Big Seven race was also auan end, all teams having comeVto the end of the schedule. Tra\- erse City defeated Petoske 34-0, in the only other i conference tilt. The Orioles out-played the Chippeiwas throughout the entire contest, taking the edge in all departments. Not once did the home team seriously threaten to upset the Orioles, the reserves even holding the northern neighbors in check and scoring a touchdown against them. Manistee's powerful ace, Capt. Bob Peterson, the player on .whom the Chippewas pinned their hopes, had the wind taken out of his sails early in the game and from that spoint on was merely another player trying unsuccessfully to stop the Oriole rampage. The Ludington squad clicked Friday evening Ibetter than at any time so far this year. All plays worked smoothly, practically every one being good for some gain. Manistee plays, on 'the other hand, were smothered time and again by the Ludington line which was striving to prove wall. itself really an all-star Smick's First Season Manistee's defeat marked the end of Danny Smick's first grid season at Chippewa town.

But don't forget that's a money crew they're going up against. The Ludington team is composed' of bowlers who have proven their ability when the chips are down.

On the next play, however, Parker completed the run, skirting left end for 21 yards and the score, the play being made behind perfect blocking try the Oriole linemen. A try for extra point failed placed hi& charges higher in the estimation of Big Seven foes than they have been in several overwhelmed Orioles, the Chippewas showed spirit until the final whistle and tried vainly, in t)ie closing minutes to convert at least one score. Gone, however, in the Manistee years. Although toy the powerful attack, were the evident enrlier in fancy plays the season and straight football was featured toy the Chippewas. The Orioles made most of their yardage on line plunges and end plays. As usual, they steered clear of a barrage of passes. Punting was not as good in Friday's game as it has ibeen in other games, due chiefly to the high wind which streaked across the field through the entire game. There were practically as many Ludington fans at the game as Manistee fans. All persons attending, the game shivered as the night grew into the coldest football weather of the current season. It was an ideal football night for all except the spectators, however,' toeing dry and chilly. Few fumbles were noticed.

All play was deep in Manistee territory, a number of plays putting the ball down on the Chippewa 25 yard marker. Snow then hit right tackle for two yards. Parker, taking the play, fumbled the ball but recovered it and went around left end for eight yards and a first down on Manistee's 13. Ezdebski hit the line for six yards and Snow penetrated the line for a touchdown, running the count to 32-0 where it remained only until a pass from Parker to D. Horowski converted the extra point, the count then toeing 330. A complete reserve team was then substituted and no further decisive action took place in the quarter. Ludington resumed its attack in the opening of the final canto. The Oriole reserves worked the ball down to the to Manistee, the ball—ibemg downed on the Manistee 30- yard line. On the first play of the game, a Chippewa fumbled the toall and Dave Horowski pinned it to the earth. Bowden then took the ball through the line for two yards after which Parker streaked around left end for 17 yards and a first down. Bowden knifed through the line for five yards and Parker completed a pass to Snqw for nine yards. Stanley •Horowski then slipped into pay territory on a plunge through tackle to make the first touchdown of the game. Bowden plunged and converted the extra point, making the score 7-0. .

A pass from Peterson to Olson then gave the Orioles their final touchdown. Gebott walloped the line for the extra point. With the score 40-0, Manistee tried vainly to get a score as the final canto waned. Pass after pass was incomplete. The Oriole first squad was put in the game with but a minute to play, assuming the role of ending the season which they had so successfully negotiated.

By LEE KRUSKA One of the outstanding treats of the season is anticipated Sunday afternoon when the strong Stroh's bowling team of Detroit invades Smith's alleys for a set- to with a' local all-star group. The strong brewery outfit is scheduled to bowl in Traverse City tonight and will arrive in Ludington Sunday morning. The match, scheduled to start promptly at 1 p. m. is expected to draw the largest crowd of the season. There is no admission charge. Five Ludington keglers, who need no introduction to local alley addicts have been selected to uphold Ludington's colors. They are Herb Johnson and Ted Newhoff, veteran Tamper keglers; Russell Schoenherr, Willoughby's ball a la speed thrower; George Hillman, one of the rising young aces and Ray Taylor, whose coolness under pressure is acknow- the hapless Cardinals, who have' won only a single game this season and aren't likely to snatch another one at the expense of Steve Owen's sturdy club, still stinging from a defeat by Detroit. The Redskins injuries struck hardest among their blocking backs but, offsetting this blow to their running attack, Baugh suddenly has shown a . recovery of his great passing form. All this would seem to indicate that Washington will depend considerably on its aerial armada. Brooklyn's strongest weapon also has been its forward passing and Parker is tied for the individual passing leadership of I Combined average of the Ludington team is 179.0. Here's how the individuals stack up: Hillman, (two leagues) 185.7; Schoenherr, 181.7; Johnson, 181.2; Taylor, 173.6; Newhoff, 170.5. Last year, three of the present team rolled against Stroh's— Schoenherr, Johnson and Taylor. The visiting Stroh's team hold so many records it would bers. Handy Things had a swell chance to crimp their style Thursday night out was not equal to the task, dropping three straight, in the face of a consistent onslaught. Incidentally there are only three ladies' league rollers who have not bowled under 400 as yet. They are Edith Schwartz and Mrs. M. Meyers of Russell's and Alice Moline of the Tamper. Seems to be a lot of bowling interest in Scottville this year. That City Food team in the ladies' loop, although not doing so well at present, has a lot of fun at the alleys. And primarily, that's the real purpose of bowling. It is regrettable that Scottville is not represented in the Industrial league as was at first intended. Tom O'Hearn of the Scottville bank is one of the most ardent keglers in the nearby city. Efforts are being made, so we're told, to book some of the strongest bowling teams in the Northern Michigan cities are talking of a proposed bowling league one which would do its rolling on Sundays. Traverse, Manistee, Cadillac, Petoskey and even Mt. Pleasant have said they're interested. It's a pretty tough proposition getting an inter-city bowling league to function properly, about that.
