By Georg Stadronaky, Jr. Morton High School! basketball team, play if g in their second Subnrban League contests of the season, swept over New Trier of Winnetka Friday evening in a thrilling double victory in which the Mustangs won 60-41 and the improved Pony quintet triumphed 43-33. These two victories give both local teams a perfect record, placing them both ort top in the league standings, v In the varsity contest Dick Bauman sparked the Mustangs and became high scorer for the evening with a total of 20 points on seven baskets and six free throws. Bob Shaw accumulated 15 points while Bill Hunt and Mike Zeddies of New Trier made 13 and 11 markers, respectively. Bay Roffi came next with a total of 10 points. 2 Although New Trier got off to an early 1-0 lead, the closest the Terriers ever came to the Mustangs after that was when the count was tied 4-4. Buckets by Karm Cusack and Bay Boffi gave ' Morton a lead which was1 never relinquished during the rest of the game. Bauman dropped in four fielders in the hectic first period which ended with the Mus- The Lowdown on Sports By George Stedronsky, Jr. I Sports Editor J - With only a short time remaining before the coming of their regular season, Mortons boxers under the guidance of Coach Joe Jahelka are now going through the rigors of a daily practice period in order to be prepared for the traditionally strong teams which they will encounter. Among the formidable teams which Morton is scheduled to face in the future are Culver, St. Johns, Morgan Park, St. Marys and Grant high schools. Each is strong and some of these teams gain national recognition each year for their outstanding material. Activities of the team ware begun about three weeks when the annual boxing show was preaenl-c J to the student body at Morton. Besides a comedy bout in which four blindfolded pugilists were allowed to fight among themselves, four feature bouts were held. In tha paperweight division, Nick Guglielmo out-pointed Bill Con-narty for the decision with both hoys weighing about 95 pounds. Two lightweights. Boh Shubinski and George Makris exhibited fine style with Shubinski winning. In the heavyweight division. Gordon Richards defeated Ed Malinovski While Jim Stathakas defeated Frank Smith by a decision. In the annual Catholic Youth Organization tournament held in Chicago, three Morton boxers participated and won high honors. These boys were Bob Shubinski, Jim Sarno, and Gordon Richards. Sarno, battling for the welterweight championship after eliminating several rivals, waa defeated in the finals by Abe Lee, a Chicago Chinese. In 29 starts Sarno has 20 victories to his credit. Rirhsrds won the championship In his weight class in tha novice division after boxing at Morton for less than two years. 135 pound Shubinski was also out-standing, eliminating his opponents with little trouble. Now in his senior year at Merton he is a seasoned veteran and has accumu-.fated an outstanding record with many wins to his credi.

Roffi made two buckets while Bauman, Shaw, and Ferd Nadherny each gained one charity throw for the Mustangs. Morton went on a scoring spree in the third quarter to add 16 morg points, with Bauman and Shaw each hitting for seven markers. At the end of three periods the Mustangs were leading 41-27. Not to be outdone, the New Trier quintet put on a drive of its own and secured 14 points in a valiant attempt to gain its first league win. Again Hunt came through, this time with six points. The remarkable circumstance in this period was the making of nine gratis tosses in nine attempts by the Terriers after missing eight tries previously. In this period Coach Jim Vopicka substi-t-ted freely and gave a number of boys an opportunity to display their talent. The game ended with the Mustangs holding a 50-43 edge. In the evening opener, a fighting frosh-soph quintet played its best game of the year to administer a 43-33 defeat to the New Trier underclassmen. Ciro Vuolo dominated the floor throughout the game and emerged from the ctest with a total of 16 points on eight buckets. Rudy Cernoch gained 13 points for the Morton cause while Don Hodgson of New Trier made 12 points to lead his team in that respect. Getting off to an early 4-0 lead, the local Ponies never were overtaken by the New Trier quintet. Holding a 21-14 lead at halftime and a 30-24 advantage at the end of three quarters, Morton was never in danger. Therefore Coach Paul Pavlinek used many of his reserves, some of them giving creditable performances and all gaining useful experience. FROSH-SOPH GAME VARSITY GAME Morton (50) fi. F. P.

ED The end of the duck hunting aeason usually brings a nostalgic memory of days spent along the rivers and bottom lands. As you look back to the waterfowl season, there are certain things that stand out like bright objects in a picture. For instance, you recall that morning down on the Sangamon when Fritz Prieg who was d'Mng the pushing for two other fellows dropped a Canada honker into the blocks the only goose that had been shot in that vicinity since the opening of the season. According to his companions, Fritz muttered that he ould shoot the first one who lifted his gun to take a crack at hi goose. Then there was the morning when we poled our way through smart grass, startling hundreds of wood ducks who took to the skies. Or there is a vivid memory of the black mallards who turned to the call and settled down into our decoys and didnt seem to be particularly annoyed when we rose in the blind to chase them out. Perhaps that time the three of us squeezed our triggers and were amazed to see three ducks dropping down into the reeds, was a red letter memory. However, no hunter reaches this time in the tail end of the waterfowl season without yearning to re-live some pleasant memory or , thrilling experience. The' writer recalls two or three long-range shots that should never have been attempted -j but they worked. Such shots, of course, should have been left to a magnum probably a ten gauge at that. Then there was the time fortune smiled and' we marked up a double. .. One thing that has brought into focus an idea that may' mean something to hunters is that Of marksmanship under difficult conditions.

To all outward appearances the gun seemed to be in perfect working order and it was not until 1 was in the blind and had banged away at my first duck (and missed) that I found that the magazine would not release shells. . This meant that, unless I wanted to do a minor overhaul job right there in the blind, my shooting that day ' would be limited to single shots. i On the face of it this situation looked bad. However, I didnt wish to waste time ao I decided to do the best I could shooting the gun as a single. This meant that I would have no second and third shot to follow up any misses. Knowing that this was the condition I instinctively decided to make every shot count. The result was that my marksmanship showed a vast improvement. 1 didnt waste shells on tricky shots; I waited until the birds were within range and the ones I hit went down for the count. Ill grant you that my companions shot more ducks during the course of the day, but they did it with a far greater number of shells in proportion to the ducks killed. Our ancestors went far afield for their game and their fowling pieces in those early days were muzzle loaders. Each discharge of those early firearms meant that the hunter Jiad a good five minutes of work ahead of him getting ready for the next shot. It wasnt the simple process 6f merely shucking the shells into the breech. That leads me to one conclusion that those early pioneers HAD to be good marksmen. For if those old-timers missed the first shot they didnt get a second. That meant the difference between having meat on the table or a plate of beans for the main course.

Affiliat'd with tbs Cbiisso Dmtal Boci'tr Manpower 1 our nations most important problem at the present time.' Industry is beginning to recognize that the man who operates its machines is its most valuable asset, and the problem of working hours lost because of absenteeism due to illness is becoming increasingly serioua in war industries. One of the most prevalent causes of absence from work Is dental disease, 1 Some observers place it second only to the common cold as an affliction of industrial workers. Dental defects affect the general health in several ways. First of all, proper mastication is essential for the good digestion and assimilation of food, which in turn are essential to good general health and efficiency. This is im: possible when the teeth and gums are sore and painful, or when many teeth are missing. Then, diseased . teeth, are a common source or focus Of Infection from which bacteria, and the poisons they produce, invade the body. Dental infection is a common cause of arthritis, neuritis, eye trouble, kidney disease, stomach ulcers, and headaches. Most disabling illnesses due to dental disease could have been avoided by early detection and treatment of defects. Whatever the condition of the natural teeth, dentists can repair them or make new ones which will enable the worker to chew his food properly. But an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and is much - less expensive. Regular checkups by q dentist will catch the trouble before it has a chance to become serious. Mr. Dohes is survived by his sister, Frances Dobes Zid, with whom he resided, and brothers, Joseph, Louis, John and Frank. He was the brother-in-law of Joseph Zid, Catherine, Libby and Frances Dobes, Mr, Dobes was also a member of Cardinal Council 1691, K. of C. and the LaSalle Assembly, Fourth Degree, Subscribe to The LIFE now I HEALTH CENTER SI5.G3 TONSILS Remov'd lor .......
