PA., OCT. 3, 1S7 ; Section Two Fa,'; e : Basketball Loses; SP Tie; CiN i il AI.j IS TWIN TOWN SPORTS By JIM HACKETT Many fans are easting furtive j0-6 pasting meted out to Jenkintown. The score itself does not evoke any comment but the extenuating peachabie source informs us that'the romp is excusable in the light of developments. ... For in the first quarter EARL MUNDELL, the Black Knight of fhe Bux-Mont Conference was batted ruefully to the ground, immobilized. . . '. A crescendo of cheers shook the Jenkintown Tooting section, they had "Got Mundell". . . Why were they after him, because he is great, no other reason. . . . And that provoked Johnny Meyers to Unleash the horses.' In fact Mundell tallied four times to continue his schoolboy lead not only in the Bux-Mont but throughout , the state. '. . . In the final half Meyers plugged the fleet footer into the contest when the Trojans had penetrated' Drake territory.' , Gockley has been rolling up Bcores at Springfield, at the same time fattening the scoring columns of his ace back Rob Robertson. . . . As long as Gockley persists in rolling the. count to "boxcar proportions, as kn)g as other teams insist on beating down a boy because he is great or horrors, because he is Negro Johnny Meyers will run up the markers for he has a right to do so. . t If one of our Sell-Perk boys were in the conference scoring race and another team was out to selfishly draw Some semblance of power from the season by running one of their boys to a scoring title, our coach should and would see that his boy received 11 the glories possible rightfully so. '; - . ' ; , Older football fans talk of the football teams to Sell-Perk, thus to the Greenjackets. . . . That was acceptable ten years ago, before sport took on the mechanical machinations prevalent today, before football players were manufactured like rubber tires; before the Golden Goose ran across the gridirons in the country from college through schools into the eandlots. , . . The "cycle" willnever come again unless the school' board, the athletic council of our body manufactures it Today the football players are hot only born, they are made. A boy may be born with the fleetness Of foot which admittedly is the greatest attribute otjL breakaway runner, but the blocks which shake him loose are not innate to a youngster,' they must be ingrained through practice. . . . Our "cycle" will come yhen we as a community demand it, until then, it will be as extinct as a dinasour. . ' v , . ' ' ' Our Greenjackets are in a dismal season,, in fact never in Jacket history has the football fortunes sunk to the depths of the 33-0 loss on Saturday night. . . . Certainly would be a great time to ride herd on the bfficials in the league, the officials of the Wave, the coach, the boys. . But the herd rider can play Lonesome Polecat well stick with every fne of the aforementioned groups to the end, regardless how bitter it may be. . . . Not to coin a phrase, when it rains it pours, but the Jackets have suffered' more injury and misfortune than the other five clubs of the league combined. The omnipresent and hovering catastrophe .which struck down Moose Barndt will never leave the ball club this year, but in spite of this, injuries have riddled the backfield . . . Tues day right the Big Six met in special session at Lansdale to offen player help to the Greenjackets. This meeting WAS NUTV called at tne insistence pt the Wave. Here is the consensus of opinion among the other clubs in the circuit. ; . i "Russ Shelly and the entire Jacket organi sation are sportsmen with nary an equal They will never cry 'Uncle and yelp for help.' Instead they will bravely take their lickings, never once cringing or crawling. Because of their sportsmanship we must help Jhem." ... All the gloom, the laok-lusljre performance goes to the boards, smothered in the knowledge that the respect of your own league' is with 700 when-times are-darkentr-...'. The men who know are iot Sniping, the boys 'who play the Greenjackets are sympathetic. There is 110. blame on. officials, on all. and sundry connected with the league. Instead there H a grim realisation of respect in every one's Sporting mind. . ; . It is truly s pleasure to be associated witn men the fcaliber of those who operate the I- . !r. The odorous aroma which is bf the metropolitan papers on KocKy uraziano, as wen as nnuni publications, link boxing men with the scum of the country, the after dark sinisters who go sround robbing widowed mothers with eight utiij - : ju. t..t. . jli'chirmrnitltt A':urh artrp.

' , '.Sellersville - Perkasde's surprising and improving eleven., meets the Jenkintown Brakes tomorrow night under the lamps at the Twin Town school. After dropping two straight . games to Springfield (67-0) and to Doylestown- (14-0), the Gutekunst eleven- has shown up remarkably well. . Upper Morelsnd was tied 12-12 then an in and out Hatboro club was knotted 6. This hits led the kids to believe in themselves and many are hoping for the entry into the win column against Jenkintown Friday. - ' Jim Hoseood has resoonded to the rest and his pitching arm is ready. With this lethal weapon at command, Hen Gutekunst is ready to shoot the aerial works and grab the first win. With Lansdale and Ambler, coming on in quick order, the Blue and Gray must win from Jenkintown to get the lift for the two powerful machines.. A win for the Blue and Gray will vault them into the ton of the second division, oddly enough. For the record 01 the Consolidate rs is lack-lustre but the other second division clubs in an unbalanced league are little better. - . . iRallying over a touchdown in the third period and coming within inches of winning the game, the surprising: Sellersville - Perkasie football machine continued its rise from the depth to tie Hatboro 6-8. When all hands are pointing ' toward the Thankseiving Day arame with Quakertowit, the game supplies the needed fire for an upset win over the Quakers. For it was one week earlier Hatboro smashed the Quakers into a 19-12 defeat on a devastating passing attack. In Saturday's game Hatboro took a 4-0 lead in the second period when Ernie Gero crashed over from the four yard line to cul 3 Lansdale ... 3 Quakertown 7 Souderton .; 14 3 0 42 Sell-Perk ..

Steve glommed the sphere and came directly across the field, picked up four blockers and when Jim Hosgood, the guy who started the play, removed the safety man with a spiffy block, Smith went all the way. The all-important point was missed and the score stood 6-6. : - . - 'But within three . minutes ' the Blue and. Gray was back on the Hatboro six, first and ten.

In the other frame Sunday afternoon Quakertown Hurricanes ran for three touchdowns to scalp the Perkiomen Indians 0-7 at East Green ville. The win vaults the Quakers into third position and serious contention for the crown. At Souderton neither team was able to score for three periods in a weird ball game. But the bizarre was yet to come and in the fourth period more shennani?ans were pulled than is imbibed by kids out for Hallowe'en fun. The only face made was by the wincing iNibbers. I Neal Budcmart, who was wilder than the stormy wind all afternoon, Anally threw the touchdown pass with 4 minutes and forty seconds remaining: in the ball srame. The VeU had advanced to the Nib three on two long passes from Buckman to Everett Frets. Then when three line plays netted them a two yard loss from' scrimmage, tha VeU paradoxically ' enough used the Hm thunder, the sleeper play. Ron Meininger was sighted by the 'Nib defenders but two late as buckman nit him with the one rood oass he threw all afternoon Bob Moser converted to make thA, final cotfnt 7-0. Doylestown's winning pushes the 1946 champs Into serious contention snd makes the race a topsy turvy affair. For only four points separates the fifth and, first plact Club, with the final first four assured of a playoff berth.

League Gives Wave Four New Men ' ; For Doylestown Game At a special meeting of the Big Six Football Conference In Lansdale on Tuesday jiight, ' tha league voted plsyer help for the Sell-Perk Greenjackets. According to league rules, a -sssa whs has not participated In two of the first five gsmes is not eligible for the Isst five a law designed to stymie "ringer" singing. ; ; Immediately tha Jackets went out and signed Bobby Gehman, Earl Fargo, , Paul Oreiser and Al Homer. All four are' hacks and will bolster , a sagging ball toting depart- ment. The Green Ware will ' meet Doylestown on Sunday at the Memorial Field, : Doyles town ana the tour new . will be in the lineup. Misdirected aerials and constant fumbles paved the way for a Lansdale Hawk 33-0 win over the Sell-ersville-Perkasie Greenjackets at Memorial Park, Lansdale on' Saturday evening. Bruised and battered through . injury,' the valiant Jackets battled furiously "to the w4re with the determination, given only to amateur erformers. This loss was the most severe; pasting ever aosoroea ty a ureenjacket team in more than twenty years of campaigning ana also established a record rout for the Bisr Six Con ference. Prior to Saturday's game, the Lansdale Hawk ; suffered the worst defeat of any club in the loop, a 27-0 walloping meted out by the Doylestown -VeU last year. . -In spite of the score the Green never gave up and consUnt fumbling never gave the opportunity to get moving offensively. For the nawKS scored tnree times in the first half, forcing coach Les Zettv to UBe linemen in the backfield throughout the second half ii an effort to save a depleted backfield sun.
