SIXTEEN EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 1952 Phone 4600 for a WANT AD Taker Allegany, Unbeaten In WMI, Host To Beall Tonight Those classy Fort Meade basket- 'ball Generals who come to town March 2 to battle Cumberland's ™Spas will bring jwith them a nifty record. '• Master Sgt. Virgil "Red" Burns, of the local Army recruiting office, reports that the Generals compiled 21 vic- against defeats Febru- tories seven ! through , Dick Schnlttker ary 5. ' Since then, the Generals have added four more triumphs, including a 88-63 conquest of Norfolk Naval Air Station last night at Fort Meade. The other three wins were over Fort Eustis, Fort Lee and Fort Myer. Heading the array of Fort Meade stars to be seen here is Dick Schnittkcr, the AU-Ameri• can from Ohio State. Dick is the Generals' coach and second In team scoring. He collected 28 '. points In last night's victory. Until February 5, the Generals 'were led by Henry Parker who had =•485 points in 28 games. Schnittker *had 395 in 24 contests. Parker hails jfrom Baltimore and formerly play;ed at Lincoln University. Another familiar figure in the Meade lineup is Clyde "Hard « Times" Green, the former West '" Virginia University ball-hand— ling flash who played last season with the Wheeling Blues in the All-American League. 1<&W < Other members 1 of the Meade , roster are George Anderman, La' fayette College; Bob Stump, De- Cue Willis, North Carolina ' College (Durham.) ; Kay Smith, ; Hampton (Va.) High; Bob Laflerty. jAltoona (Pa.) High; Arthur Stab- |nau, Wilson High (Sunbury, Pa.) *and Assistant Coach Bill Echard, | Noll High (Hammond, Ind.). iFairgo Has Gripe ,' Larry MacPhail, racing's latest • "mouthpiece," who in our opinion "is more .voluble than valUr • able to the sport, put on ' a great exhibition of "cry-baby" • acting last week. when the Maryland j Racing Commission handed him ' several early December . dates for 1 his Bowie track. But, overlooked in t the shuffle was the hand Cumberland and Hagerstown were dealt in '. the same shuffle. Cumberland was July 15 to July 2fi and Hagcrs- lom-n July 29 through August .9. with every day at these two half-mile ovals conflicting with Charles Town. Harry E. Flook, Fairgo general manager, and Dr. Robert C. Snavely, who holds a similar post at Hag- erstcwn, have more reason to cry than MacPhail. Both meets can go on as scheduled, but Charles' Town will get most of the horses, as the nearby West Virginia track offers a longer meet — July 5 through August 9. Mutuel play is also bound to be affected at all three tracks. Willinm Boniface, racing writer for the Sunpapers in Baltimore, comes through wtlh a suggestion that could solve the problem for Hagerstown, He . proposes to move up the ten-day meeting at Bel Air to follow the Pimllco meeting, which closes on May 17, Bel Air could operate from May 21 through May 31— taking in two Saturdays md Memorial Day. Under the present arrangement, Bel Air will race from (Continued on Page 17) Camper Five Battling For Seventh Win Fort Hill To Invade Bruce, Lonaconing Entertains Barton Fourteen area high school basketball contests will dot tonight's heavy schedule with WMI League and Potomac Valley Conference tilts occupying the spotlight. A full program is slated in the Western Maryland circuit with undefeated league-leading Allegany tackling Beall on the Campobello Hill takes on Bruce at Westernport and Lonaconing Central is host to Barton. The Campers, with a 6-0 league slate, holds a 53-41 victory over the Mountaineers who have won their last two WMI contests' after being on the losing end in their first four tilts. The Bruce Bulldogs, still losing contests the hard way, by one to six- point margins, gave the Sentinels a tussle before bowing, 37-31, at Fort Hill. Barton At Coney At Lonaconing, the Tigers will be after their fourth league victory, but will have to be on their toes to take the Barton scrappers into camp. In the series opener, Central came through with a, 48-42 decision. Barton, although winless in six games, is improving with every contest. "Sonny" Kyle, of the surprising Barton Braves who extended Allegany last Friday evening before losing out in the final seconds, 48-47, has taken the individual scoring leadership away from the Campers' Junior Eversole by four points, 92 to 88. Kyle had a 24-point performance against Allegany while Eversole was held to his season's low, hitting for only six markers. Both players are also running one-two in average- per-game with Sonny having a scant edge—15.3 to 14.7. Other shufflings were also registered during the opening games of the second-half of circuit play last week. Beall's Billy Davis rang up 14 markers against Bruce to move from sixth to third place ahead of Fort Hill's George McGregor and Dave Poling by a point and Dave Steele of Allegany by four, points. McGregor and Poling each have hooped 73 tallies in six games with Steele chalking up 70 counters in a like number of contests. Keyscr Idle In the Potomac Valley Conference, the important battle between Keyser and Piedmont, originally set for tonight, has been • set- back to tomorrow evening, but Coach Jesse Riggleman's Petersburg Vikings will attempt to move closer to the Golden Tornado by facing a tough Moorefield squad on the Petersburg floor. Petersburg is two games behind Keyser in losses, but a triumph over the Yellowjackets would pull them even in the victory column at nine games each. Moorefield gave Petersburg a rough battle in the opener before bowing, 56-48. The other two conference games find Mathias (3-5) invading Capon Bridge (0-8) and Elk Garden (6-5) playing host to Fort Ashby (3-5). .In the individual PVC scoring race. Moorefield's Charles Kern has an 18-point bulge over Teammate Merle Barr, by swishing in 220 markers to Barr's 202 tallies in 14 contests. ' Keyscr's dead-eye, center, trails the Neil Leary, point-pouring Yellowjacket stars in third place, but shows the best average per game with his 181 tallies giving him a 20.1 mark in "nine games. Ridgeley's Ron Abe is runnerup to Leary in game average with a 17.4.

The Easterners combined speedier ball handling and better play- making with letter-perfect rebound- ng against the ruggedly-built giants from the West who were ed by 6-10 George Mikan of Minneapolis. This was the East team's second 17-point victory in this hoop 'dream game" (last year the margin was 111-94). Six of the East's ten- Paul Arilin, the 6-5 Philadelphia Warriors standout, won the outstanding player award.

That was in the 1932 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, when Oregon's Ralph Hill had Finland's Laur! Lehtinen well beaten, but was almost tackled trying to pass. The crowd was so upset about the fouls, and the pusilanimous judges who stood for them, because the Finns were already vexed, that they scarcely remembered what a grand race It was. They also witnessed a remarkable 10,000, when Poland's Kusocin- ski ran way from the Finns. "But most folks in this country believe these races must be deadly duli," lament.s Templeton. who coached Stanford for so many years. Zalopek Shakes Them "They should get one look at the astonishing Emil Zatopek. In London in 1948, the Czech Army officer was getting the pass-and-slow-up treatment from the Swedes and Finns until, with nine Japs to go, he suddenly got tired of it, and decided to shake them. "He just plain sprinted 400 meters, leaving them a good 70 yards in arrears. "When everyone suspected that was the end of the laborious-looking Emil, he just uncorked a beautiful two-mile as a finish, and to give them something more to remember him by, winning by more than 300 yards. "Zatopek looks heavy and muscle- bound. He has a weird style, breaking; his right-arm rhythm about every three strides, reaching clown as though to stretch his knee, and turning his entire body to the right every time he does it." Wilt Is Part Of Act Templeton supposes that Fred Wilt would have to be B vory ornery, stubborn customer to step out of the mile racket now. "Wilt has become part of an act that draws the crowd," points out the long-time Stanford tutor. "The promoters would make him feel like the worst kind of a heel if he stopped stooging for Don Gchr- mann." Templeton, now a San Francisco radio producer who voices his track thoughts in a column for Sports Editor Walt Carnage of the Fa!o Alto Times, contends it, is poor ron- dif.ioning for both. p.*prriaily in nn Olympic Games year, xvhrn a 10.000- j meter man pace?, a trrrifir finj.-hrr ' with his eye. on the 1.500 niptrr.'. | Though i( miclu bo lough for \vilf, to pull out of his mile tandem with Grhrmann. in the order named. Templeton insists the G-man ought,! to do it right now, for his own pood and that of the United. States Olympic team.

The Dukes toppled St. Bona-*- •—•—;—venture from the ranks of the undefeated last night, 69-63. It was a crushing setback for the Sonnies. The loss was St. Bonaventure's first in 17 games and Duquesne's seventeenth straight victory of the season. Before the game the Dukes ranked fifth and the Bonnies fourth In the Associated Press poll. This week's new rankings puts Duquesne third and the Bonnies a notch behind. The votes of sports editors and radio newscasters were tabulated before the game. Dudey Moore, coach of the Dukes, tossed adjectives around with reck- les abondon after tlie game even in the direction of the Bonnies— and he had every reason. Said Dudey: "It was a. rugged, tough battle. St. Bonaventure gave us our toughest fight of the year. They had a real good team, particularly on defense. I think the defensive play was outstanding. After all we scouted each other a good many times." Moore didn't single out any individual but he couldn't help but throw admiring glances at his two top scorers, 6-7 Center Jim Tucker and 6-6 Forward Dick Ricketts. Between them the Dukes collected 36 points. Ricketts, a freshman hit for 19 points and Tucker, a sophomore and the team's leading scorer, bagged 17 markers. Tucker's now got 292 for the season, Rickett 219. Tasting defeat for the first time was bitter pill for Eddie Melvin to swallow. His season's top scorer, Bob Sassone, fouled out midway In the fourth quarter and the Bonnies couldn't catch up. Duquesne played a deliberate control game, hitting 25 of 53 field attempts for a 47 per cent average. Big Vein Scpres Sixth Win In Row Undefeated Big Vein Hill experienced a close shave in the Lonaconing Recreation Basketball League, but managed to emerge with its fourth Victory of the season, a 36-34 conquest of Church Hill. Jimmy Lupis and Jim Wilson scored 12 and ten points, respectively, for the leaders, while Crable had a dozen for the losers. Buck Hill won over Scotch Hill 45 to 32. Bob Mundeno of Scotch Hill set a scoring record by meshing 24 points. Shaw and Brown paced Buck Hill with 14 and 13 tallies. Robertson racked up 14 points as Screen's topped Castle, 32 to 15 Donald was high scorer for the losers with eight. The Bonnies connected for only 24 of B7 attempts for 27 per cent. The Dukes also outscored the Brown Indians at the foul line. Moore's quintet chipped in 19 out of 30 charity throws while the Bonnies connected for 15 out of 27 Officials called 50 fouls, 33 of them in Duquesne the first had 24 two quarters, black marks against them and the Bonnies 26. TWENTY YEARS AOO—The New York Yankees appointed GcorRe WclSR as director of their farm .-system. Kentucky Voted First In Hoop Poll For Fourth Week In Roiv NEW YORK—(/P)—Kentucky, already crowned Southeastern Conference champions and assured of an NCAA playoff berth, enters the final phase of the college basketball season still ranked as the No. 1 team in the nation. The Wildcats head the field in* efforts kept the West within hailing distance in the first half but the East was in front at intermission 49-44. The East, which built an 11-point advantage after three quarters, 8271, had its worst moments in the first four minutes of the finale. The West pulled up to a one-point deficit at 86-85, before Arizin and the playmaking Bob Cousy spearheaded a stretch drive. The West managed to hit on only 37 of 103 shots from the floor while the East sank 39 of 77—better than 50 per cent. the Associated Press poll for the fourth straight week and the only stumbling block remaining in their path appears to be De Paul. Kentucky drew 42 first-place votes and 867 points from the 103 sports writers and sportscasteis who participated in the poll. Kansas State remained in second place. Kansas State collected 14 first-place votes and 737 points. The Kentucky Wildcats bowled over Mississippi and Georgia Tech during the week and last night, after the polls closed, defeated Mississippi State, 110-66, to run their winning streak to 15 games and their season's record to 20-2. Winners of the NCAA title in ihree of the past four years, Ken- ;ucky has three games remaining in the regular season. The big one is against De Paul in the Chicago Stadium February 23. Early in the season Kentucky swamped De Paul, 98-60. The same teams that graced the x>p ten a week ago remained In the select gioup although some positions were switched. Duquesne, only major unbeaten team in the land, moved from fifth Marciano, Savold Ready For Battle PHILADELPHIA — (ff) Marciano and Lee Savold Rocky rested at their headquarters here today, with no heavy workouts planned before their ten-round bout at Convention Hall tomorrow night.

They are tackle Hal Vogler, Captain of the 1949 team, and Don Mason, hard- hitting guard on the same '49 team. how much the promoters are paying the big stars," he says. "Long ago the really top ones thought nothing of collecting S1000 an appearance, and, as Charley Paddock always said, 'Never take a check.' When Glenn Cunningham was the kingpin, they published American income tax figures in Sweden, and I'll never forget Ray Malott, the Stanford quarter-mller, when he returned from a Summer tour, and reported reading in Stockholm that Glenn had paid taxes on $32.000!"
