THE BERGEN EVENING RECORD, MONDAY, MARCH 21, 1943 CLIFFSIDE, WEEHA WKEN CHAMPS MA Y MEET FOR RED CROSS PAGE FOURTEEN Calabrese-Schwob Duel A Big Lure At Random In Sportdom Bergen Quintets Have A Monopoly On Group 3 Title By AL DEL GRECO CLIFFSIDE A. C. DOWNS ST. STANS IN RETURN GAME CLIFFSIDE HIGH SCHOOL won its second New Jersey Group 3 championship on Saturday night at the Seton Hall gymnasium, hotting off Merchantville to the the tune 42 to 28 and it seems to me the Central and Southern sections should do something about the strangle-hoyd North Jersey has on this crown. Lodi won in 1940, then came Cliffside with a title club in 1941, Rutherford broke through last year as it beat Merchantville by one point and now comes Cliffside again. It is the opinion of this indifferent basketball expert that both the Weehawken, Group 2 champs, and Cliffside, would have defeated Asbury Park, Group 4 title holder, thl year. Asbury turned out a shoot-'em-up club which nosed out Trenton by a 38 to 37 score In an overtime contest. Trenton looked the smoother of the two but they pay off on points, eh kid? For the first time in years, your correspondent conducted a Calabrese For All State campaign and carried the fight home to the assembled scribes. Most of them, who eyed Jerry for the first time, were greatly impressed. You don't mind going all out for a player of Calabrese's skill You know he's a standout in every respect and an able team man. Gus Falzer, the Dean of All-State pickers, said he's picking Dick Lajeskie on his All-State team, which will be announced next week. Gus figgers the Passaic player was the best scholastic player he saw all year. He was superb in sectional games against Garfield and Emerson and was beaten by Trenton in the semi-finals. Lajeskie was a nifty shortstop at Passaic High last year. He acquired his baseball and basketball talent by heritage for his dad was a fine first baseman for the Doherty Silk Sox quite a few years ago. . Seton Hall was a great spot for the finals but there's one thing which drove all of the spectators nuts. Smoke. The fans were permitted to smoke in the balcony and it wasn't long before you could cut the smoke with a knife. The theater seats were too much for some of the fans they sat down and dozed right off. v - Coach Lee Savage and his Cliffside basketball champs took a severe mauling immediately after the game as enthused young ladies rushed on the floor and freely gave samples of lipstick. Lt. Frank Milner, former Cliffside coach, was tickled with th club's win. "Winning clubs have helped Cliffside," he said. "I'd venture to say the following is the most enthusiastic and best behaved in the county now. It's a far cry from the time when every little incident was the start of a riot." It's dollars to doughnuts that Les Purvere of Weehawken and Savage of Cliffside wouldn't play each other in the proposed Red Cross game if they had anything to say about the matter. Their objective was the State championship. Anything else Is an anti-climax. They can console themselves with the thought that the money goes to a worthy cause. The Calabrese-Schwob duel will turn out the fans. The Weehawken ball hawk brought his season's total up to 474 as he tallied 23 against Highland Park. In the semi-final tussle, against Springfield, Eddie set a new Individual state tourney record as he scored 41 points, seven more than the opponents. Asbury Park won the championship of Group 4 with only one regular of last year's team in the lineup. He was Pete Vetrano, who captained the basketball, baseball and football teams. More than the season's championship was at stake. Through the years, Trenton and Asbury had won six state titles each under the direction of the same coaches, Red Smith and Chippy Coleman. The Blue Bishops crashed through for their seventh title in the rubber meeting. , THEY'LL DO IT EVERY TIME By Jimmy Hatlo Cox Confers With Barrow Players Yanks Sold Phils Will Be Inducted In The Army Soon; Jeff Heath Only Absent Injun Hershey, Pa., Mar. 22 (TP) Owner Bill Cox of the Philadelphia Phils was in New York today to confer with President Ed Barrow of the Yankees regarding the recent sale of First Baseman Nick Etten for Ed Levy, Al Gettell and $10,000 in cash. Neither of the players acquired by the Phils have reported and are on the verge of induction into the armed services. The Phils have carried their case to Commissioner K. M. Landis but Cox said he hoped to straighten out the situation without action on Landis' part. Evansville, Ind. Manager Steve i Indian.

C. was out after revenge last night and it made sure it got it. Playing a return game with St. Stans of Garfield, a club that had defeated the A. C. only a week ago, the Cliffside boys came from behind to win 46 to 34 at the A. C. court! in Cliffside. j Dick Lajeskl, Passaic High School star, was slated for duty in the St. Stans lineup but he received a telegram from the New York Giants asking him to report for a tryout at Lakewood so he was unable to appear. The A. C. had four of the Cliffside Park High School quintet. which annexed the Group 3 State title on Saturday night, in its lineup SCHOOL STARS PRESENT Jerry Calabrese, Wade Duym Clgt Clgolini, and Fred Zimmer all helped in the defeat of the Garfield Club, which had Al Slavinsky and Mike Mlsklv, Garfield High stars, on the floor. St. Stans went out in front in the opening period when it outscored the home club 10 to 9 and main tained that one point edge in the second stanza as both teams played on even terms with 8 points each. Cliffside started to move in the third quarter and went into the lead by outpointing the Garfield boys 14 to 12. In the final period the A. C, really hit its stride and outscored the visitors 15 to 4 to take the ball game. BRIEFS Ben Maselan of Cliffside led the scoring parade with a total of 17 points while his teammate, John Gozdenovich, cut the cords for 9. The Garfield scoring was well diS' tributed as Slavinsky, Miskiv, Megee, and Purut, all put 8 points through the hoop. Even though they lost the Gar field boys have one consolation. They were the first opponents to prevent Calabrese from scoring at least 9 points this years. Jerry could only put together a total of 6 points. The Cliffside Park A. C. record now stands at 27 victories against only four defeats. The Cliffside-St. Stans encounter i-was the feature of the night and was preceeded by two preliminary games. In the first contest, the Cliffside Park High School Jayvees defeated the St. Michael's Jayvees of West New York, 38 to 37. In the other game the Cliffside Park A. C. Girls downed the Cliffside Brunettes 25 to 15. Next Sunday the A. C. will play the Memorial High School All-Stars from West New York. The scores: Cliffside a. c. 4) O. F. P. U.

The physical fitness program he will go through at the Chapel Hill, N. C, preflight school may develop that minute . fraction of co-ordination which, he admits, is required to reach his seventh heaven. There was talk at the Chicago relays Saturday night after the 27- year-old former school teacher had bettered his world's records with a solo of 15 feet 8 k inches that calisthenics at Chapel Hill might have loosened something such as his flexor profundus digitorum a wrist muscle, no less to a degree that made the big jump possible.

Warmerdam, who always has ad hered to a strict training routine which is reflected in his record of clearing 15 feet or more 33 times believes, however, that the fitness program may really develop some special muscle or tendon and result in the millenium of timing necessary for 16 feet. After his record jump Saturday, the cross bar was hoisted to 16 feet j inch, and the Californian, at tempting that height for the first time, missed on three trys maybe Just because of that ol flexor pro fundus etc. Warmerdam stole a good show and received a thunderous ovation from 14,000 spectators.

COMET JAYVEES LN VICTORY 58 TO 38 The Hackensack High School Junior Varsity gained sweet revenge for an earlier loss as it trimmed the Blaum Association of Guttenberg 58 to 38 in a return game played at the Hackensack High Schoool Gym on Saturday. The Hackensack Jayvees prac tically settled the outcome in the first period as they piled up a 21 to 6 margin. In the second quarter, the Blaum five came back to outscore the Comets 10 to 6 but the third stanza again saw the Hackensack boys go on a spree as they put 17 points through the hoop while holding the visitors to only 3 points, and went into the final period boasting a 25 point advantage.

Tonight's twin bill is the final half of the first round in the national Invitational tourney The Texas outfit will oppose St. John's of Brooklyn, labeled by the National Collegiate Athletic Bureau as the ninth best point-making quintet in the country. The Red-men won 18 of their. 20 games by dumping an average of 56.9 tallies through the hoop in every game. The second contest puts Western Kentucky State, rated second be-h'nd Rhode Island State with an average of 61.1, against Fordham, which is 15th on the list with 54.7. Rhode Island topped the nation in points with 80.7 in each fray. Western Kentucky also is rated third best on defense, allowing its 24 opponents only a mean of 32. It follows Detroit and Penn State in defense, the former club setting the pace with 30.9. Wednesday and Thursday nights the Eastern playoffs of National Collegiate, starring Dartmouth.

' Bob Johnson, slugging outfielder for Connie Mack's Philadelphia A's in recent years, is the latest to be issued his card in the new organization. Johnson, with Indian eloquence, had announced various times dur ing the winter that he wanted to be traded and Mack finally took the hint and sent him to Washington last night in exchange for shortstop Jimmy Pofahl and infielder-outfielder Bobby Estalella. He is one of at least seven major leaguers since last fall who have announced a preference for a dif ferent job or baseball uniform and have been traded by owners seeking to conserve their meager supply of manpower. Pofahl also is one of the group Only last month he was sent to Minneapolis of the American Association for pitcher Owen Scheetz. When he said he preferred his de fense job to playing in the minors, the Senators retained him and paid cash for the hurler. Now he is with the Athletics. The trend got its start late last fall when infielder Eric McNair was released to Washington by Detroit. McNair immediately said he was "washed up" and "through with baseball". Later he explained that he didn't want to join the Senators and would play anywhere else. He joined the Athletics, JOOST, DERRINGER OBLIGED Eddie Joost, second baseman, and pitcher Paul Derringer of the Cincinnati Reds, expressed their hopes of transfers during the off-season and were sent to Boston Braves and Chicago Cubs, respectively. In then-cases, however, family' tragedies were blamed for the desires, each having lost a child in Cincinnati last summer. Babe Dahlgren, much traveled first baseman, made his ultimatum to the Brooklyn Dodgers stick and he finally was shipped to the Philadelphia Phils for Lloyd Waner and Albie Glossop. Dahlgren's feelings stemmed from his release to Mont real in August last year when it appeared the Dodgers would clinch tne National League Pennant and! he would miss a series cut. Billy Meyers, former Cincinnati and Chicago shortstop, really is the founder of the present society. Sent to Los Angeles last year, he refused to report and spent the year railroading. Saturday his contract was sold to the Boston Braves and a sister in his West Fairview, Pa., home said last night he was undecided about his return to the game. Wally Moses, Chicago White Sox outfielder, may be the eighth member. He has expressed general satis faction with the Sox 1943 pact but reiuses to sign in hopes of beine traded to the Mackmen from whom the White Sox obtained him last year.

LOSING OUTFIT PAYS DIVIDENDS Both Of These Star Players Led Teams To State Titles Saturday At Seton Hall; Cliffside Scores 42-26 To Beat Merchantville For Group 3 Title Cliffside High School's basketball team, which snaeeed its second Group 3 New Jersey State basketball title on Saturday night at the Seton Hall gymnasium in South Orange by beating Merchantville 42 to 26, may play Weehawken, Group 2 New jersey cnamps, in a ea uross Denefit game this month. The game has the approval of John Krudener, president of the Cliffside Board of Education and also chairman of that borough's current Red Cross drive, and Henre Rone, president of the Weehawken school board. Krudener and Rohe will get to-t gether tomorrow night to iron out details of the contest, which is certain to lure a capacity crowd. Coach Les Purvere of the Weehawken team okayed the game when he was approached. Cliffside's coach, Lee Savage, will do all the gambling for Cliffside is in a higher bracket than Weehawken. BOTH ARE OUTSTANDING The game, if staged, will bring together Jerry Calabrese and Eddie Schwob, star performers of the teams. Their respective merits have been the subject of controversy for many weeks. Both these boys led their teams to State titles on Saturday at the Seton Hall gymnasium in South Orange. Weehawken, paced by Schwob and Johnny Carnvari ran wild with a 65-39 victory over High land Park in the Group 2 final in the afternoon to hang up the fourth State championship since Les Purvere took over the reigns in the late "20's. Some four hours later, Calabrese paced Cliffside to a 42-26 win. In the Group 4 final which followed, Asbury Park's powerful quintet won the State's most coveted title by beating Trenton 38 to 37 in an over time contest. Cliffside had an off night as it ran rough shod over the Merchant' ville team. But there's little question that it must go down in the books as the greatest victory of the season for the Firemen. Jerry Calabrese led the way for the Cliffside crew, as he has been doing all year. . He turned in a sparkling performance as he shot up six field goals and three fouls for a total of lS points. He also had five assists. The other boys, Cigolini, Duym, Fox, and Zimmer all covered them selves with glory in this important' tussle. Cliffside had a hard fight of it for three periods, but never was in danger of blowing the ball game, for it outscored Merchantville and built up a lead gradually. Merchant' ville threw a man-for-man defense against Cliffside. but it wasn't enough to shackle the Bergenites. Center Duym of the winners met tough opposition in Paul Engle but Paul eventually went out of the game on personals, for he fouled Duym too many times. The Bergen boys ran up a B-e lead in the first quarter, made it 18-13 at the half, and just about sewed up the game in the third quarter with a 30 to 21 lead. The last quarter was a runaway.

In the second encounter they came from behind to squeeze out a 83 to 80 victory over the Oradell Men s Club at the Oradell court.

It scored a semifinal win over Weequahic 38-36 and the championship tussle was closer than this and that. Ed Schwob netted 23 points as he helped his Weehawken mates to a 42-26 win over Highland Park. The fast Hudson County quintet ran up 2ie points in its three tourney cames. The New Jersey Writers will se lect their All-State team Thursday. Rangers Made $1,100 More Than Last Season New York, Mar. 22 (P) For the first time since they've been in the National Hockey League, the New York Rangers finished a dead last his season. . . . They were so weak they busted the "goals against" record by a country mile and nearly set a record for a losing streak. . . , But when the returns were in the club made $1,100 more than last year not including $10,000 or so re. ceipts from their Red Cross game. . . . At that rate, the Athletics ought to pay off the mortgage this summer. . . . Cleveland is going for indoor track in a big way. The K. of C. is importing all 300 pounds of Jack Lavelle as starter for Sat- urday's meet. . . . Maybe this northern spring training ain't so hot, but as. soon as the umps start calling 'em the fans will say they've seen the first robbin'. LIGHT EXERCISE Story making the rounds of the Iowa Pre-Flight School (we don't guarantee it's true, but it illustrates something) Is that a cadet was galloping around the track one day when he stumbled and cracked his head against the rail. ... As he lay there, waiting for the first aid squad to pick him up, another cadet ran past him shouting, "Well, don't just lie there. Do some pushups or something." MONDAY MATINEE Tommy Byrne, the southpaw from Newark who has inherited Lefty Gomez's No. 11 uniform on the Yankees, resembles El Goofo in one way he'd rather hit than pitch. . . . The difference is that Tommy really can hit. He batted .593 in his last year at Wake Forest College. . . . Leo Dlegel has raised more than $600 for the Red Cross at the El Rio Golf Club in Tuczon, Ariz., this winter by plastering two-bit fines on golfers who hit into traps and by rigging up golf bets in which all the dough involved went to the Red Cross. . . . Earl Blue, president of the Reda' Sally League farm t Columbia, S. C, has been taken into the Cincinnati front office to make up for the loss of Frank Lane and Fred Flelg to the armed lorces. When the Jersey Giants pitch camp a block away ivom their big brothers in Lakewood, N. J., nexi week, their hotel will be named Hartnett Hall.
