HIGHEST SCORERS Former Akron West Athlete May Outshine Chuck Chuckovits, Another Akronite; Unorthodox Overhead Type Of Shot Brings Points TOLEDO, Jan. 27.—(AP)—The University of Toledo ••'Rockets are living up to their name again this season largely because Bobby Gerber is living up to his. . The Rockets are one of the nation's highest-scoring college basketball crews—and Gerber is one of the nation's highest- scoring college players. Just where the Rockets would be without Gerber's average lematical. of 20.9 points per game is prob- The six-foot, four-inch former Akron West high school star is a worthy successor to Chuck Chuckovits, another Akron scholastic wizard who first put the university on the basketball map. Gerber took up as a sophomore where Chuckovits left off as a senior and the Rockets just kept right on roiling.

Putting greens and winding fair-, them and, although not as effective, ways probably will not be the things of beauty they have been. "It costs an average of $1,000 a hole to maintain a golf course," estimates Burns, manager of the J. Ed Good Municipal course in Akron and public relations expert for That's the opinion of Charles A. Uie Qrecnkeepers' association. "And Burns oi the National Grcenkeep- ers' association. that's for the playing layout alone, not the bar and fancy trimmings they will be made to serve. Knowledge and trained men will take the place of tools and materials," he said. Tire shortage, Burns says, may cut private club play. Public links will be affected less because they generally are more accessible to the residential districts and transportation facilities. "I wouldn't be Golf courses, he says, probably around many clubs.

The total valuation of golf course property, including land, clubhouse equipment and furnishings of the 5,209 courses, is $720,000,000. "That is too big an investment for us .to allow our courses to be too neglected," Burns said. And the golf industry employes 88,000 persons. As for the supply of golf . balls, C. P. Bobbins, a sporting goods house representative, says enough are on hand now to meet the normal demand until early summer. He is confident that some arrange- mercury and other the game is an essential civilian jment will be made to afford a sup- a ins. But he also is a fine floor man, of tea bringing the ball down from back court, and is a crackerjack on defense. As for' scoring, Gerber lias achieved most fame through an unorthodox, overhead type of shots from the corner but he is equally proficient at lip-ins, leaping two-handed pusn-shois from around the foul- line and even from outside the foul circle, rlespite the fact that his vision is not the best. Corner Hook Shot Is Specialty His specialty, though is the corner hcok shot and woe to the team unable to fathom his deceptive fake by which the ball is brought overhead with a sweeping, hooking mo- 1 tion. Gerber, back to the basket at the start, gets his range out of the! corner of his eye and conies around with the ball. As Gerber himself puts it: "You sort of get the 'feel' of whcra the basket is aft-er awhile. Then it's simple." Most of Gerbcr's shots from any range travel almost with no arc, even his overhead tosses. This not only makes his shots hard to block but gives him a LEADERS IN NO. 2 RACE ARE BEATEN Acme Dairy Holds Two Game Margin Over Whisler Plumbers "Native fertilizers will replace morale and health builder.

By FRITZ HOWELL COLUMBUS, Jan. 27.—(AP)—That 484-point basketball record set in the 1937-38 season by Toronto's Tom Kinkade was definitely on its way out today—with "Lefty" Nelson, sen- . ior forward of the Washington township team of Nauvoo (Scioto county) ready to climb upon the throne, Th'e southpaw adding machine of the southern Ohio class A team, which has won 19 of its 20 starts, has racked up 480 points in 20 contests, and has five tilts to go. He missed Kinkade's high-average mark by one-fifth of a point per game, Tom getting his 484 in 20 games, while Nelson has 480 for that many contests. Scored 23 Points Last Wetk In last week's scrap with South Webster, Neison needed 27-points to tie Kinkade's high-average record, bub he settled for 23 as his squad took a 54 to 27 win. In the last 55 games Washington township has been beaten twice, losing to Waterloo's Wonders a year ago, and dropping a one-pointer to once-beaten Portsmouth East this compaign. Nelson isn't the only high-counter in the scholastic realm. Sylvester Goedde of Vaughnsville, with a 32-point splurge against Gilboa last week, hoisted his 11-game total to 317 points—an uncanny average of almost 29 per game. - ' . Van Horn Shines f Johnny Van Horn, five-foot fivc- inch star of the Rosewood team which has dropped seven of its 15 games, scored 50 against Greene township for the season's high mark, boosting his average to 22.2. Fritz Nagy of Akron South, playing in the state's stiffest competition, came up with 17 and 26-point totals in two starts last week, giving him 218 for 12 games, .an average of 20.6, while Gregory of Vinton Rural ran up 318 points in 13 games for a 24.5 mark.

The class A champion, Martins Ferry, won its llth of the season and its 28th in a row by beating Wheeling;, W. Va., but stayed a couple of games behind Toledo Central and Akron North, which soared on to v their 13th victories. Union Furnace, king for a week in Class B, was knocked out of the top spot by Gibsonville, turning the lead over to Ridgeway of Hardin- Logan counties and Amesfoern of Athens county, winners of 14 straight. Along with Union Furnace, such powerhouses as Defiance, Lake township of Wood county, "Wyndham of Portage county, and Hicksville were defeated for the first time. On tiie other hand, Medina snapped a 21- game losing streak extending -over two seasons, beating Wellington, 2G-14, while Hartwell won its first Millcreek loop game in four years. Meeting between Bob Pastor, New York heavyweight, and Gus Lesnevich, the light heavyweight champion, in New York, Jan. 30, is important for both battlers. If Pastor gets by Lesnevich and then whips Lcm Franklin, Cleveland heavyweight, in a February bout in Cleveland, the former Golden Gloves star may get another shot at Louis' title. Lesnevich also is angling at a title shot. . Totals 866 G. & N.

By RUSSELL NEWLAND SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 27. *(AP) —Benny Hogan, the best golfer in the country for money, marbles or chalk the last two years, is well on his way to making it three times in a row. In the 1942 golfing gold rush, Benny the par-buster already fcas staked out two claims and made them pay. His latest feat was a mud-splattered victory in the San Francisco Open. He won $1,000 first money with a nine-under-par 279. For 72 holes Hogan battled a soggy, slippery course to lead the way from start to finish. Less than three weeks before he won in the Los Angeles Open, worth $3,500 plus an extra $1,000 from the play-off gate receipts with Jimmy Thomson. In between the wins, he picked up extra change in a two-way tie for second place in the Oakland tcurnament. His total winnings'! for the first three PGA-sanctioned tour- j neys is $4,775.
