MARCH 16, 11 939 THE PADUCAH SUN-DEMOCRAT PAGE THIRTEEN 4 ih DOWN SPORTS AVENUE By Sam Livingston JUNIOR THOMPSON MAKING GOOD A RANK outsider when spring training opened, Paducah's 1936 star. Junior Thompson, now is given a great chance to stick with the Cincinnati Reds this season. The Cincinnati Enquirer scribe had this to say about Junior after he and Lloyd Moore had turned in a no-hitter against Brooklyn last Sunday: "Thompson, who was with Columbia, Redleg farm in the South Atlantic League last season, and who hails from Decatur, Hi, home town : of Chuck ' Dressen, coach of the Dodgers, was even more of a punle ta the highly-touted sluggers of the Dodgers than Moore. ! X "During his three rounds on the firing line, the husky, tobacco-rtiewine riehthander. rated one of the fastest pitchers on the Redleg roster, set four of the Dodgers down on strikes, and allowed only two balls to be hit out of the infield off his wide assortment of hooks and fast balls." Bill McKechnie. manager of the Reds, who usually is reticent to praise a rookie, said Thompson has a splendid chance to stick with the Reds. Following his splendid showing against Brooklyn, McKechine said: "He has the poise, plus the ability, of a real major league star already." And yesterday Thompson was one-third of a Red mound trio that gave the Yankees only five hits in a 12-inning, 2 to 1 duel won by the I Redlegs. FIRST REGIONAL PAYS OFF A report received from Coach Roy Stewart of Murray College, manager of the First Regional tournament there last week, shows .the affair was a financial success. Total receipts were 786.30. Each team was allowed 15 cents a mile traveling expenses, running the total traveling expenses for the tournament to $117.30. The officials were paid $36 each 170. It cost $40 to shorten the playing floor from 90 to 80 feet, $31.51 was expended for trophies, $1155 for a basketball and $4.11 for roll tickets. Murray College made no charge for lights, water, towels, rent, janitorial service, ticket-sellers and gate-keepers, leaving $511.43 to be divided among the eight participating schools $6353 each. Each school had to pay for itown meals and hotel rooms, but the rates were to low that even the schools which stayed, through the tournament came out ahead. ., , The largest crowd attended not the finals but the first round session Friday night. The paid attendance at the Friday night session was 816 and at Saturday's final 754. However, the gate receipts were $248.00 Friday and $293.75 Saturday, due to the fact that adults were charged 15 cents more for the championship game.

Curiosity Ruins Private Telephone 'Company' In Ohio JACKSON, O., March 16 U.R Prospective callers on a Cooper Hollow Road Telephone "company" phone are not likely to find the line busy. This telephone exchange, privately owned and operated, extends less than a mile and has three subscribers. iw..1m ftff TVsirle lemoc Davie fld John O. Lloyd, the sunscriDers, . . . ' i , 1 ! are not aoie to mase any uaus iu earby towns but their wives una e "company" very useful. There are no monthly bills. Each subscriber maintains his section of the line; making necessary repairs and furnishing batteries for his crank-type telephone. The line was first established in 1903 when 15 farmers along the road formed the association, cut telephone poles and contributed money for the purchase of wires and insulators. Each member bought his own telephone. Then it was possible to make connecting calls with surrounding villages. Two turns on the crank called the Winchester operator and one the Thurman switchboard. But in case of a fire or emergency a series of six short rings brought all subscribers to their phones. Too much eavesdropping ran down the batteries and brought the downfall of the company, it was said. Some subscribers also would "ride free" on other phone batteries when their own had run down. The line fell into disrepair. The connection lines and subscribers gradually dropped off until today only the three remain. A huge primitive stone workshop has been discovered in the Halea-kala crater of the great quiescent (volcano on the island of Maui.

"Oftentimes I order the men around, if I think they're not do ing the job right," Mrs. Bennett, who is Sheffield's first woman council member, said. "I've been on the council only a year, but I decided when I was elected to it that a few things needed fixin' and I'd see if I could do 'em myself." The councilwoman drives to the various road projects in the village's two-ton truck and frequently visits the county commissioner's office, the state highway headquarters and private companies to transact slag contracts and other street business. The small community's roads are said to be in better condition than at any time during the past 15 years. "When Dad was Belmont county road commissioner, I'd drive the team of horses while he would operate the scraper and other road equipment," Mrs. Bennett said.

Britain Uses Aircraft In Jerusalem Searches JERUSALEM. March 16 (U.R) New tactics adopted by the British military in Palestine to conduct searches in villages with the aid . of aircraft have proved successful. Two hours before a village is searched, six planes swoop over it and drop leaflet warning the inhabitants not to move on pain of being fired on. This prevents the villagers running away or being able to conceal arms. The villagers are then shepherded into a small section of the village by aircraft before the troops march in to begin their search.
