FOURTEEN EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1952 Phone 4600 for a WANT AD Taker That Potomac Valley Conference basketball pennant that has been flying ever Moorefield High School will on its way to Keyser. It was generally agreed by followers of the PVC that Petersburg wfli the team to beat for the conference title—and Keyser turned the trick twice. Second-Half Opens In WMI Cage League Tonight Aico,Ft.nai Quints Have Home Games Campers Play Barton, And Sentinels Central; LaSalle At Ridgeley WMI LEAGUE STANDING OF THE CLUBS W. t. Allegany ,, t Port Hill 4 Central , 3 Bruce 3 T. 1 Barton 0 Pet, 1.000 .800 .800 .300 .000 At least, it appeared a certainty on Tuesday when John Shelton's Golden Tornado quintet turned back Petersburg in a thriller at Keyser. Basketball action resumes on the area high school and college front tonight with a slate of 17 contests. Five "Greater Cumberland" teams will be busy, with Allegany meeting} . Barton at Campobello and Port Hill i The Tornado tcssers, although un- playing host to Central in Western} defeated in league competition, can still lose the title, but it's very unlikely at this stage. Shelton's shoot- Maryland Interscholastlc League games. LaSalle engages Ridgeley on tiie latters' court and Carver enterers have won nine games and have j talns Ramer Memorial High School four yet to play—Piedmont, Ridgeley, Moorefield and Fort Ashby. The biggest hurdle seems to be the neighboring Piedmont Lions. Keyser nipped the Lions In the first meeting by a 60-58 count, and the return go is scheduled for the Piedmont floor next Tuesday night. That one should jam the Piedmont rym, and if Keyser finishes on ttrp, It will be all over but the shouting. The Lions of William "Huck" Miers are still in the running, boasting a 6-2 conference record, but Keyser has been the league's most consistent team all season, winning the close ones. Petersburg, beaten twice by Keyser, has an 8-2 record, a big reason the Vikings win be keeping their fingers crossed in anticipation of the Tornado running into trouble. Like Keyser, Petersburg has four more games on its PVC f 1 a t e, meeting Moorefield, Franklin, Wardensvllle and Rpmncy. Piedmont has three more after Keyser—Fort Ashby and Romney twice. Keyser could lose one of its remaining, four starts and still nail down the pennant. This may happen, but it's doubtful if the Tornado Is calmed twice, as the Shelton shooters boast wins over all four of the remaining foes. Those Race Horse Names! Those proud parents who haggle for days about the naming of their child should give heed to the christening of race horses. About 8,200 must be tagged by February 1 each year and the titling Is governed by iron-cUd rules of the Jockey Club. Names are limited to 14 letters, including spaces, thus preventing such "handles" M Crytochonchoiphy- . Mtlgmatlc cluttering up programs, as it did In England. Contrasted was a horse which bore the name of Q, no more, no less. No name of a famous horse may be used, nor may any name used within the employed. past 15 years be Horses usually are named according to a formula that conveys something of the animal's breeding. Man o' War's Ret carried martial names — Crusader, Mars, Edith Cavell, American Flag, War Admiral, etc. Shutout's progeny are given names relating to baseball, such as One Hltt«r and Goose Egg. Emerson Woodward submitted S3 names for one thoroughbred. When they were all rejected, Woodward named the colt, Val- dlna, after his Texan ranch. Thereafter, until The Jockey Club frowned gently on the practice, he named all his colts and fillies Valdlna—calling them Valdlna this and Valdlna that, right down to Valdina Orphan. Another Texas breeder submitted 60 names for a son of Sortie. When j they were all declared out, he tagged the colt simply Sortie's Son. An owner, disgusted after many tries, 'aaid. "You name him." That became his name—TJ Natne Him. of Martinsburg, W. Va., on the SS. Peter and Paul hardwood. All contests will begin at 8 o'clock, Second Half Starts Most of the interest will DC centered OT> the opening of the second- half round in the WMI League. The high-flying Campers of Bill Bowers, fresh from" a victory over Ridgeiey Wednesday thri extended their season's winning string to nine straight, will be striving to ring up their sixth consecutive league triumph and maintain a clean slafc* as head of the circuit at the expense of the wlnless Braves. Defeated Sentinels The Campers took sole possession of the top spot by trimming the Sentinels, 51-43, in the last game of first-half play. The Blue and White cagsrs are now a full game in front of the Hilltoppers. Allegany has been averaging a terrific 61 points in its five circuit clashes and toppled Barton in its opening game, 73-57. Fort Hill, in trying to defend the title it won last year, will be opposing the third-place Central five that forced the Sentinels to come from behind in the last quarter before pulling out a 41-33 verdict at Lonaconing. In the other circuit action, Coach "Augie" Eichhorn's Bruce High Bulldogs, who have been in successive "squeaker" games, will play the Beall Mountaineers on the Frostburger's home floor. Bruce has a 2-3 record in league competition. Losses were at the hands of Port Hill, 37-31, Allegany, 58-41, and Central, 43-37. Triumphs were scored over Barton, 44-42, and Beall, 43-40, in an overtime. Bcall's lone league victory was chalked up at the expense of Barton. They shellacked the Braves, 87-61, for the circuit's high-scoring mark of the season. In the across the city engagement, LaSalle will pit its cagers against Ridgeley. It will be the second game in three days for Coach Ralph Grace Baptist Seen Threat To Episcopal Five YMCA SUNDAY SCHOOL LEAGUE Pollng's squads.

Fire Commissioner Michael J. Corrigan (right), who made presentation, designated Leonard for the award as the fellow who put out so many baseball fires last season. The presentation was made at the annual reunion and dinner of the Old Timers Baseball Association of Chicago. , Olympic Committee To Study Plight Of Iron Curtain Stars OSLO— (IP) —Avery Brundage revealed today he will bring before the international Olympic committee the plight of hundreds of refugee, athletes from Iron Curtain countries. "We certainly can't help them to compete in the Winter Games here and I doubt if we can*- ing their only game of the week. Their record now stands at 11 wins in 17 starts. They will be seeking to sweep the series with the Rldgcley- ites, having taken the first contest, 59-42, on, the SS Peter and Paul floor. Carver's red-hot aggregation, which has bagged its last three decisions in games with Lincoln of Frederick, North Street of Hagerstown and Meyersdale, will be striving to go over the .500 mark. The Frederick Street crew has a 5-5 record. Three games are listed in the Potomac Valley Conference chase, but the loop'* pacesetter, Keyser, will be playing * non-conference opponent when they travel to Spencer, W. Va. Petersburg, running second in the PVC. a game-and-a-half behind the Keyser club, will also engage an outside team, tangling with Thomas High at Petersburg. Conference tussles will show: Moorefield at Romney High, Elk do anything for them even in the Summer Games at Helsinki but the situation is a tragic one," said Brundage, a Chicago hotel man who is vice president of the IOC. The Winter Games open here February 14. The Olympic Executive Committee will meet in Oslo Monday and the full committee on the following two days. Oslo Ready Except for a few final touches, Oslo is ready for the big winter sports carnival—first ever to be held in a national capital and assured of both the biggest entry list and the largest crowds of any Winter Games. The sunny weather caused no fears because snow is a foot or more thick in the nearby hills, where many of the events will be held. "Many fine athletes of Olympic caliber are banned from the games because they are refugees," said Brundage. "Under our rules if an athlete once competed for a certain country he never can compete for another even if he fled his homeland." Drobny Refugee Obviously no country will appoint |a refugee to its Olympic team so ' athlete is shut out world competition. The Olympic Committee of Eastern European refugees has applied as an organization for recognition of such athletes. Among the better know athletes Hungarian speed skater; and Itnpre Rajczy and Imre Erdelyi, Hungarian Olympic fencing champions. "if any athlete never competed in the' games and if he takes out new citizenship papers he can compete," said Brundage, "but many might object doing that." With 1,187 competitors entered from 30 countries, already 500 have arrived here and more are coming daily by train and plane. There'll be huge crowds for all events — possibly even a fantastic 150,000 for the climactic ski jump on the final Sunday at Holmenkol- len Hill.

PITTSBURGH — (/P) — Kiner, the Pittsburgh Pirate left- fielder whose booming home run bat makes the turnstiles click at Forbes Field, wants more money. Kiner talked to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette last night from his swanky new home in Palm Springs, Calif., and declared: "I am going to ask for more money, and I don't expect to have any trouble getting it. I talked with John Galbreath (Pirate president) at the World Series. We were pretty well agreed on what I'll received in 1952." Kiner, who reportedly has drawn down $65,000 a year on a two-year pact which expired after last season, wouldn't indicate just how; i STANDING OF THE CLUBS W. L.

The Episcopal cagers last week ran roughshod over First Methodist to extend their two-year winning skein to 39. Grace Baptist, .with a record of 11 wins in 17 games, topped LaVale last Saturday, 40-25. St. Luke's Lutheran, in the second-slot deadlock with Grace Methodist, both having won 16 games -out of 17, will be opposed by fourth-place Centre Street Methodist. Grace will play Cresaptown Methodist which is tied with Grace. Baptist for sixth place. Calvary Methodist, dumped last Saturday by Centre Street, will put its third-place mark of 14 wins and three losses against First Methodist. Calvary and Episcopal will meet in next week's headline game. None of the leaders in the Frostburg Church League should have too much trouble coming through with victories. Frostburg Methodist, now heading the circuit with nine wins and a single loss, plays Zion Evangelical, while both runnersup also meet second-division teams. The top game of the day will be the St. Michael's Catholic battle with Eckhart Baptist. A victory for the Baptist will put them in a tie .with St. Michael's for a playoff fourth spot.

Spas Renew Old Cage Rivalry With Wheeling Here Sunday Area basketball fans will get their first look this season at the Cumberland Spas' arch-rival in the now defunct All- American Basketball League this Sunday when Mike Valan's Wheeling Blues tangle with the locals on the SS. Peter and Paul court at 8 p. m. In a series which dates back to the 1946-47 season, the two teams have met 36 times with the West Virginia five showing an edge in the won column having taken 22 contests. So far this season, the only -common opponent the squads have met is the Clarksburg Tiremen. The Spas swept their series with them winning 69-57 and 75-60. Wheeling was extended last Sunday by. the same club before taking a 73-71 verdict. Passers, Bouncers Win In Rec League The Passers, with Elsie McKee showing the way with 18 tallies, scored over the Shooters- in the Women's Recreation Basketball League last night at the Fort Hill girls gym. The score was 29-19. Marj Dressman scored ten markers for the Shooters., In the other league contest, I Returninfr with the Blues will be Bouncers won over the Dribblers 20-12, as Ruth Rohman registered ten points. Sue Coulehan and Maxine Smith accounted for all the losers' points. The lineups: such standouts as Andy Tonkovich, Eddie" Sterling, Paul Herman and Eddie Beach. The Spas had their four-game winning 'streak stopped last Sunday by a ball-hawking, speedy Washing- con Capitols aggregation, 73-61. Previously that had topped the Clarksburg crew, Johnson's Coal of Morgantown, W. Va., and the Chicago Masked Marvels. In the preliminary contest, the pacesetting Emmanuel Episcopal cagers' of the Central YMCA Sunday School Basketball League will meet St. Michael's Catholic cagers of the Frostburg Church Loop at 7:45 p. m.. Episcopal is currently riding on a 39-game winning skein over a two- year period in circuit play. St! Michael's captured both halves of the Knights of Columbus Youtjh Basketball League. It has also been announced by Jim Fahey that the Spas have lined up the outstanding Fort Meade Generals for a contest March 2. The Generals boast such stars as .Dick Schnittker, former Ohio State All I American, and Clyde Green, ex- West Virginia University eager. Fahey also announced that a return game with the Washington Colored Capitols will be played February 17. A game is tentatively booked with the New York Colored Clowns for February 24.

Majors Schedule 429 Night Games NEW YORK—(/P)—Year by year the major leagues- are moving closer to converting baseball to strictly an after-dark, Sunday and holiday sport. Kelease of the official playing schedules of the American and National leagues show that a record number of night games will be played in the-majors this season, With the St. Louis Cardinals leading the way, the majors wil. play 438 of their 1,132 games under the arc-lights, just under 39 per cent. Allowing 26 per cent for the 12 Sunday and three holiday dates that leaves only 35 per cent for the weekday games. The National League has scheduled 220 arc-light contests to 216 for the American. The National's previous high was 20S last year while the American staged 204 evening New Athletic Grade Policy Gets Results NEW YORK.—(/P)—The new National Collegiate A. A. principle which requires athletes to "make satisfactory progress toward a degree" seems to be showing results although it has been in effect less than a month. During the past week, as results of mid-year examinations h a v a been coming in, at least 25 varsity athletes at major colleges and universities throughout the United States, have been dropped from school or declared ineligible for athletics because of scholastic deficiencies. The list probably is incomplete as these are only the ones whose names were mentioned in wire stories. Such procedure is normal at this time when examination grades are posted and the new semester.,begins. But the attendant publicity isn't normal. In past years the colleges were inclined to adopt a hush-hush attitude when an athlete failed in ms studies. . ' Only about a year ago it took several' days for sports writers to confirm that Vic Janowiez, Ohio State's All-America football star, had flunked out. They had to locate Vio and persuade him to pay a campus parking fine so he could get his grades. This year, possibly because of the NCAA academic principle or because the college presidents have demanded.that athletes should also be students, the institutions are rushing into print with the news when a star football or basketball player becomes ineligible. And they're giving out the newt in wholesale lots, too. Brown, for instance, came out last week with the word that Edward Sexton, center and captain-elect of the football team, and four hockey players had run afoul of academic deficiencies. Notre Dame dropped three varsity basketball players, Entee Shine, Don Strasser and John Stephens, from the squad just a few hours before an important game with Kentucky. At William and Mary, Willie Clark, six-foot-six basketball center, and three football players were dropped from school for failure to make proper academic progress. Ons of the football players, Bruce Capps, was ineligible to play last fall but Curtis Knight and Pat Reeves played. On the other side, the only item of importance that has come to light recently was that Jack Molinas, Columbia basketball star who was declared ineligible last year, has made up his deficiency and rejoined the team.
