Press Box Notes By FRED McKEE, SPORTS EDITOR Kochs Meet Horseshoes In Home Opener Sunday PROCLAMATION WHEREAS, the Koch base-' ball team, representing 1 the city of Dunkirk, New York, in serai-pro baseball league play in Western New York, and WHEREAS, the Koch baseball team is the W49 champion of the .Western division of the Buffalo Evening News Suburban 'Baseball league, now therefore bs it RESOLVED, thai-Sunday, May 21, 1950 be proclaimed "Baseball Day" in. the city of Dunkirk honoring the Koch baseball team, and be it further RESOLVED, that 'all residents of the city of Dunkirk · are urged to attend the opening game on Sunday, May 21, 1950 between the Silver Creek Horseshoes and the Dunkirk baseball club. WALTER F. MURRAY Mayor. Baseball returns to Dunkirk for another season Sunday afternoon and if the weatherman is kind, it'll be a gcod opportunity i'or the hardball enthusiasts to get out and holler. 1 The Koch baseball team, successors to a string of successful Dunkirk teams, will open defense of their Western league title against, a Silver Creek club 'which exhibited plenty of batting power in its opener last weekend. A great many of us have been hopeful that eventually there might be a professional ball club operating in Dunkirk. So far, no one has been willing to take the leap and risk the 335,000 or 540,000 which would be necessary to get one going. But there are known to be a number of possible "angels" still watching the community. They might easily be swung in favor of going ahead if the fans here do a real job of backing the best available at present. Right, now, no one is convinced that thi.s is a really good ba-scball town. Strong community following of Eddie Adam's crew might, help change some minds. Aside from that, there's plenty of reason to back the Kochs for themselves. They play good baseball; interesting baseball. Opening day and the games to follow on Sunday afternoons and Wednesday nights- will be well worth attending. Not only the baseball club but several of the city's lop-flight softball nines will exhibit their wares before the home folks' for the first time Sunday. (AH of this we're saying, of course, with a deep salaam in the direction of the weatherman.) Two more Koch nines, I he Brewers and the all girl Army's, are scheduled for practise games on the YMC diamond up Benton street, way, while the Genesee-Pabst aggregation will take on a so-far unboaien Buffalo team. (If all the bear represented by the aforementioned-clubs should'be dropped on Dunkirk we'd be as bad off as Winnipeg.; NEW WILLYS STATION WITH HIGHER-COMPRESSION HURRICANE ENGINE The county's high school track teams are getting the-preliminaries over now and must be just about ready for the three bic meets ccming- up during the next three Saturdays. First in line is the Southwestern conference meet next Saturday for the six 1 member teams. That one involves Fredonia Silver Creek, Gowanda. Wc'stficld, Falconer. Southwestern and Salamanca. Dunkirk gets into the act the following Saturday at the county iv.cot in Lakowood and will be back in action the following week in the Section VI meet.

' Connor's HR Boosts Royal Lead To Four 'The Koch baseball team will make its home debut Sunday in a game which may well have considerable bearing on the ouu come of Western division play. They'll stack their hitting power against the slam - bang slugging of the Silver Creek Horseshoes, who gave them their toughest fight for the pennant last season. Both are undefeated this season. · Sponsor John Koch will throw out the first ball on the Warsaw street diamond Sunday a.t 3 p.m with City Attorney Thomas No- wickl behind the plate. These two teams arc expected to fight it out for the Western division title as Silver Creek finished in second place last season. Both clubs depended on their hitters to carry them to the top of the league. Manager Eddie Adams Is fearful that lack of practice this past week has somewhat hampered the batting eyes of his sluggers and looks for a very tight ball game. Lack of good baseball weather-was harmful to both clubs. Adams will call on Smokey Jim Panowicz to silence the heavy guns of the Horseshoes with Joe Niedbalski calling the signals. Gene Mohart will toe the rubber for the Creekers with big "Beef" Grlewisc'n behind the plate. ' All Koch ball players are requested to be present at the diamond at 1:30 p.m. to gel some extra batting.licks. Other Western league home openers- match the Fredonia Concords at Brant. Gowanda State Hospital at Cherry Creek and Forestville at Dayton. Except for the Dunkirk game at 3 p.m. all g:.mes are scheduled, at 2 p.m DOPEY'BECOMES SEPFEL It will be a slightly different, version of Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs tliat Germans see for the first time in Cologne.
