.'AGE SIX -- 'THE PORTSMOUTH, N. H. HERALD, Friday Ivenina, September'15, 1944 New Hampshire Teams Off Nashua Schedule For Third Season .-;Wjth against, New Hampshire teams as scarce as butter in a-; chain store, Nashua high an- ·nounced its "toughest" grid schedule in years, according to Prank Stawasz of the Nashua Telegraph. The schedule appears as though j the Gate City eleven were playing tor the Massachusetts state cham- ! pionship instead of wishing to be considered a football power in the Granite State. Mr. Stawasz writes as follows: _ "This is the Nashua High grid schedule for the fast approaching 1944 season and from beginning to end, it is the most impressive the Purple squad has ever yet been asked to face. Sept. 15, Friday. Maiden. Sept. 24, Sunday, v.'oburn. 1 Sept. 29, Friday, Leominster. ; Oct. 3. Sunday, at Lowell. 'Oct. 13, Friday, Pawtucket East. Oct. 22, Sunday, at Chelsea Oct. 29, Sunday, at Central. Nov. 5, Sunday. Revere. Nov. 11, Saturday. Haverhill. Nov. 19, Sunday. Open. . Nov. 23 Thanksgiving, Cambridge Latin. "In answer to be a request for better opposition, school officials are presenting a 1944 schedule that should quiet any scoffers. Starting with powerful Maiden this Friday eight, the Purple will enjoy a brief respite on the following weekend when it tackles woburn on the Sabbath afternoon: Then it'll be Leominster, Lowell, Pawtucket East, Chelsea. Central, Revere. and Haverhill. one right after the other. · "The Nov. 19 date, which at the present writing is an open date, will remain so unless the local officials can find a willing opponent. However, with ten games already on the schedule, a rest period before the Thanksgiving day clash would be just what the doctor ordered, or it will be at that time." Sport City By BOB KENNED?

Getchell Ports. 523-R Dover 986 Nashua high's Royal Purple and its publicity agent Frank Stawasz will swing into action tonight to begin, a long schedule of football games. It is a rugged schedule for any club to play and before the season is through Harvey may have to call upon junior high reserves to help him out. Of course, Frankie points out, there is no real shortage of manpower in Nashua, but the 1944 team is very light. The backfield will outweight mo of the opposing clubs but the line may be pushed back into the wingbacks. Nashua, probably will play by the new rules by the EICAA but Harvey admitted that none of the rules particularly will help his ball club because there just aren't any players .who can do the things that the new changes allow. Just how Nashua believes it can be considered a member of_ the New Hampshire football set is a puzzler. The only Granite State outfit on the schedule is Manchester Central and that is an annual game. In fact. New Hampshire sports writers are perfectly willing to h a n d Nashua over to the Massachusetts scribes and say "it's your problem now. you fix the ratings." Dover high's schedule, announced yesterday, has eight New Hampshire teams listed for games this year as well as one Maine club. The Green Wave opens a week f r o m Sunday with Manchester Central over in the Queen City. The next week it plays Cathedral high also in Manchester and then plays a delaying action until Oct. 12 when it plays the Clippers at Bellamy park in Dover! The Dover authorities delayed announcing the schedule until attempts to have. Portsmouth and Laconia change their' dates proved futile. The Green Wave tackles Laconia on Saturday, Oct. 14, in Laconia, two days after the Portsmouth game. One change, important to note, is the switch in home games with Dover,. The Clippers and the Green Wave were supposed to play in Portsmouth on Co- week the two teams agreed to switch so the schedules will lumbus day and in Dover Thanksgiving day. Earlier this remain the same as last year. .On Oct. 21 Dover will play Concord, Oct. 28 will see Spanieling at Dover and Nov. 11 Somersworth will invade Dover for its annual game with the Green Wave. On Nov. IS Dover will p.iay Portland high in Portland and the 23rd will meet Portsmouth at Portsmouth. That is a tough schedule for the Green Wave to play and it appears doubtful as to whether or not the open date for Nov. 4 will be filled. The 1944 slate is about the same as the schedule last year's Dover team went through in losing only one contest and that to Deering high of Portland. Deering is missing from the Dover schedule this year. In speaking of the possibilities of his squad the other day after a scrimmage session. Coach Ollie Adams, shaking his head sadly, said : "I'm mighty glad we aren't playing Manchester Central today." * * * * M t t * » Flyer Home, Brother Gets Purple Heart NOTES ON RECENT OPERATIONS: Stewie Dawson, who recently was graduated from an AAF training school, is visiting Portsmouth on a short f u r l o u g h . The former Portsmouth high and Seton Hall track star is in the pink of condition and looks as streamlined as the planes he flies in. However, he says that he is at regualr weight and feeis swell. Stewie has to report back to California next week so plans to leave home tomorrow or Sunday. A n d , speaking of the Dawson family, reminds us that "Dick. Stewart's brother, sent home the purple heart he received after being wounded in action in Italy. Dick, aged 19, went into the army a little more than a year ago and is a member scout company. He served on the Anzio beachhead with his company and later moved along with the outfit when the Nazis were smashed in Southern Italy. NPM and Hampton Renew Series Race , Tonight's srame has been cancelled due to wet grounds. While last night's wind blew as high as some of the pitchers in die Suns« league this season, Hampton and the Naval Priscn Marines are ready for ihs- sb:th game of the championship series Monday. The long rest giver, the learns may tempt Manager Clarence Kershaw to send his ace-in-the-hole, Ralph Tremblay, to the wars again. Tremblay already has won two games in the playcff and if the marine? hit him as hard as they have in previous encounters, I he will not have any " trouble at I all. ! Joe Giglio may take the hill for the marines in this last bid for the title or he may pull Gambrel to the hill once again as the young second baseman did a nice job on the mound last week. The Hampton club, holding a 3-2 advantage in. the series, might be ! counted as an easy favorite to win I the series. However, the marines ! of 1944 have shown more fight in | the clinches than any other team fielded by the prison in recent years. Anything car. happen in -this series and anything may happen Monday and the day of the finals. Should the marines win Monday, the date of the finals will be decided upon by the directors after the game.

It would really be a rough-ohuse I guess. That reminds me of the story I heard Bockne tell in Chicago once. Two teanis of small boys were playing football in a back lot in Chicago and a little Irish boy came along. He watched awhile and somebody asked him if he wanted to play. | "I don't know how." he replied. i "Oh. sure you do. Come on. Anybody can plav football," "he was told. Well he had been watching long enough to get bis own idea of"what they were doing so he jumped right in with both hands swinging. In a little while somebody made a high kick that went over the fence, while they were all standing around, the Irish la.d said, "Come on. Let's play sonic more." "We can't," they said. "Why not," taid he. "We haven't any ball," they all replied. "To heck with ths ball. Let's go j on with the game," said the Irish i lad. I I hope it doesn't reach the point i where they say, "Never mind the' rules. Let's go on with the gajne." Talking about football reminds me of several years ago one November day we were playing in Laconia. Mr. Malloy had scouted them, and we knew their best player was their captain and right end, but he had one weakness. He was so good and so anxious to win" that he was apt to leave his position and help out some of his teammates, so we had a special play fixed for him. It was a hard :;aine. and we were behind 6-3 and it was getting late in the fourth quarter. We had the ball in midfield and near the right hand sideline. It was third down and we had about seven yards to go. John Hamilton went back to kick from punt formation. He went through all the motions of kicking, even putting his right foot high in the air. After delaying a. couple of seconds. Angle Katsanos came around from right halfback position and took the ball from John's right hand. Laconia's right end had mov: ed over to rush through center , to help block the kick. Well, you see he wasn't where she should have been, and he knew that a couple of counts later when Angie circled right end running like a deer because Angie was almost as fast as one. He ran to the one yard line before he was downed, and John punched it over on the next play, and we won, 9-6. I haven't got any good reason for telling you this .yarn except that football teaches the lesson that things are not always what, they seem, and you can't ever be acting too smart, for if you do, some wise scout or Quarterback will make you sorry. Oh yes, another reason is I saw in the -casualty list the other day that Pvt. Angie Katsanos was wounded in France. Private 'Claims 'SiL-Up' Tillc New York fAPj--The "sit-up" situation is -getting a big play among the nation's servicemen. Latest claimant to the crown is Pvt. Edward O. Spratt. 28-year-old pre-aviation cndet at Keesler field Miss., who has 6.429 completions of this somewhat tiring but beneficial physical training" exercise. ihe 150-pound Spratt--ho eats no fat--lost eight pounds in averaging one "sit-up" every six seconds. j i We have received the following 1 letter from the International Gam? ! Fish association: September 14, 1944 The International Game Pish as- : sociation has recognized a 57 pound ' | striped bass caught July 26. by Jerry , Sylvester, surf fishing off Narra: ganseit, R. I., as replacing Kip Farringtcn's former six "thread striped bass record of 33 pounds, j Mr. Sylvester's fish was 53 inches i long and had a girth of 34'i inches. It took 45 minutes to land the catch. The angler was using a feathered squid head jig. The all-tackle world record for striped bass remains the 13 pound catch made by C. B. Church, off Vinevard Sound. Mass., in August, 1913. F. LaMONTE Secretary, IGFA. We still would like to see somebody give our surf fishing a gcod hard workout with the right kind of tackle. This hurricane may have driven some decent fish inshore. One of these days an adventurous soul will haul an eld "he-one" out of the breakers at Hampton Beach. Then the fun will begin. It would be difficult to state how j many years striped bass had been running in our rivers before any- j body caught one on rod and line. ' Now, see what has happened. CALL CASWELL BROS.
