"FOUETEEN EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD. TUESDAY, MARCH 4, 1952 Phone 4600 for a WANT AD Taker Keyser Plays At Martinsburg Tonight Harry Skiles Surprised At Calibre Oj Ball On 'S/io The warning which appeared in this column last week about the strength of high school basketball on the Eastern Shore has been confirmed by Harry Skiles. Harry, who captained the Mount Pleasant (Pa.) High team In his seni.or year back in 1932 and two years ago helped prepare Cumberland's Wolford Post team for the national Am- vet tourney, has been residing in Salisbury for the past few months. "Last Tuesday night I saw the game between Ocean City and ; Wicomico High of Salisbury and sure got a surprise," Harry • writes. "These teams are good. The ; calibre of ball they play amazed me, as I'm well aware of how the schools from Allegany County used to run over Shore teams in the state playoffs. "Wicomico lost by only one point to Hagerstown in the championship game last season and the team is supposed to be even better this year. •"Ocean City has the same starting five which lost in a close game to Barton in the Class C finals last year at College Park. Don't sell either of these teams short; they both use the fast break." Skiles, who manages the laundry at the new Deer Hear State Hospital in Salisbury, points out that the Wicomico team has three boys who go over the six- foot mark. He doesn't name him, but Harry says the leading scorer of the team reaches four inches over six feet. He tallied »22 points as Wicomico turned back Ocean City, 50 to 37 to atone for one of its two defeats. Ocean City's record for the season is 14-2, while Salisbury's is 15-2. Skiles adds that Ocean City has already beaten the other Class C schools, but the county championship is still unsettled. Most of the District 5 playoffs, he says, will be held on the Salisbury State Teachers court, "and I'll be there to. see them." Fairgo May Lose Fred Cblwill To Pimlico There is a strong possibility that Fairgo General Manager Harry E. Flook will have to look for a new racing secretary in 1952, as the local track seems in danger of losing Fred Colwill to Pimlico. ; Gen. Milton A. Reckord, presr ident of the Maryland Jockey Club, feels something must be done to strengthen his organ• Ization of officials at Pimlico ', and thinks Colwill's his man." • ''I have been looking around . for someone who would fit into . the picture," General Reckord ; said, "and I think Colwill could . be a big help to us in a position similar to general manager. However, I have had only one • conversation with him on the : subject and so far nothing is ' definite. ! "We need someone at Pimlico • who knows the horsemen and understands them. Someone who can help us secure the better-grade thoroughbreds for our stakes and overnight features. "We need someone to travel to Florida and to western racing fronts in the interest of Pimlico. If I make a deal with Colwill, he will be sent to Florida and other states to interest stable owners and trainers in the Pimlico spring meeting." Colwill has served as racing secretary at Fairgo for the past two meets. Three years ago, he held the title of "director of racing," a position since abolished. Residue From The Sports Keg — The terrific game turned in by the Spas' George Geatz Sunday afternoon against Dick Schnittker and the Fort Meade Generals caused one wag to comment at half time: "Who's the All-American out there, Geatz or Schnittker?" - Frostburg's Beall High ? Coach Eddie Finzel, upon hear- 1 ing yesterday that Bob Pence is resigning his football tutor- Ing post at Allegany to' take the ] Job as city recreation director, • paid quite a nice compliment to Bob. "I sure hate to see him leave the coaching field, but the city of Cumberland is getting a wonderful break in re' creation," Eddie declared A gag is making the rounds concerning the Sugar Bowl football opponents last January 1—Maryland and Tennessee... General Bob Neyland, the Tennessee coach, is well known for his liking to book two or three breathers on his schedule each season. The General's "friends" are now making a collection to buy him a hearing aid "Neyland needs it." they explain, tongue in cheek. "When he accepted the Sugar Bowl bid, he thought, Ehe committee told him Tennessee's opponent would be Marysville, not Maryland!" Bill Hahn and Van Roby have been named to officiate West Virginia's Class B Region 4 tournament Friday and Saturday nights at Keyser's Potomac State gym. Froslburg Gives $100 To Church Loop Dinner PROSTBtTRG — The Frostburg mayor and council last night voted a donation of $100 toward a dinner which will be held the latter part of the month In honor of teams in the Frostburg Church Basketball League. The money will come out of the movie tax fund. Officials of the league who appeared and requested a donation! for the affair were Robert Jones, I Larry Shaner and Cliff Fearer. Tornado Five Needs Win To Stay In Race Improved Beall Team Favored Over LaSalle In Tilt At Frostburg Keyser High School's Potomac Valley Conference basketball champs will have a chance to stay in the running for the Class A sectional title of West Virginia tonight when they invade Martinsburg. The Bulldogs of Coach John Cobourn jolted the hopes of the Golden Tornado last week when they bit off a 60-57 decision at Keyser. These two games are part, of Keyser's regular schedule, but if the Tornado atones for last week's setback tonight, a third game will be necessary to decide the sectional kingpins. Such a game would be played Thursday at. Keyser. The Keyser Kids, tutored by John Shelton, will carry a 15-5 record into tonight's engagement, but a defeat would bring an end to their season.. Beall High's improving Mountaineers will be favored to square their series with LaSalle tonight .when the two teams clash at Frostburg. The Explorers won the first of the home-and-home set at SSi Peter and Paul's gym back in December. LaSalle has a better record, winning 15 and losing nine to 12 and eight for the Mountaineers, but Eddie Pinzel's Prostburgers are the most improved club in the area since he found a new underclass combination in mid-season. Parsons High School's Panthers will lower the curtain on their regular schedule when they play host to Belington High School today. The Panthers, who are awaiting a Class "A" contest with Elkins, are batting .500 to date with ten wins and as many losses. Great Hill Prince Ordered To Stud ARCADIA, Calif. —' (I?) — Hill Prince was retired with earnings of $422,140 to his credit, The handicap champion of 1951 has been ordered out of racing and into stud duty at the Clairborne Farm at Paris, Ky. His owner, Christopher T. Chenery, made the decision yesterday after veterinarians discovered Hill Prince had developed a filling in his right foreleg. Some critics are arguing that Hill Prince wasn't In condition for the $100,000 Santa Anita Handicap, in which he finished a badly beaten fifth, but his trainer, Casey Hayes, insists the horse simply didn't like the footing and was sound. Hill Prince was the best two-year- old of 1949; the three-year-old champ and "Horse ^of the Year" In 1950. and 1951's handicap champ. College Basketball Kentucky Gets Top Billing In Final AP Poll MEMENTO FROM.
