SOMERSET MAUGHAM'S oews POLI Donahue Coached Team Has Been Coming Along Fast After Poor Early Season Start The basketball game with Tor- rlngton High school tomorrow nlgtit at the Torrington armory looms ae- another tough obstacle in the path to a third Naugafuck Valley league basketball championship for the: N. H. S. Greyhounds. Torrlngton Is a team which start-•:d slowly earlier In the season, but has lately been coming along at a fast pace. Given'the advantage of playing on their home floor, they will bo a hard team to beat. The Leavenworth Toch Tigers'had to fight to stave off a late rally by Torrington-' to win toy five -points last Wednesday night at -the -Waterbury armory. This fact would in dicate that Torrington is now vastly Improved over the squad which lost by ten points on its own floor to Tech earlier In the season. Coach Ray Foley of the Greyhounds will probably start his regular lineup of BobStauffer and Vin Heoly at forwards, Big Chet Usca- Kiewicz at center, and Joe Healy and Bob Jones at guards. He will have Labriola, Aquavia, Tamsey, Mariano and Roland ready as first line replacements. Coach Connie Donahue of Torrington will probably call on forwards, Samele and Kruleski, center, Krlcho, and guards. Alexander and Mowalaniec to start, No tickets for the game are available locally; the allotment to the high school was barely enough to meet student requirements. Coach Donahue of Torlrngton Indicated earlier in the week that a public sole tit the Torrington armory was extremely unlikely.

The league has given over next Friday for the March of Dimes •jrogram that will be -h*ld in the YMCA Gymnafium. The following letter which was received earlier is the wc_ek IB worthy of note because it Is typical of the excellent spirit with which borough sportsdom has volunteered to do Its duty in- the March of Dimes, We think It deserves a public hearing to : 'help along a good cause. Further by prlritltig it in' his ctolunin and writing an answer the sports 'editor will save a: three cent stamp. The letter follows: Jan. 20, 1947. Mr. Tom 'Egan Sports Editor Naugatuck. News Dear Tom . I would' like to ask you to start ah all sports division of the March of Dimes for the benefit of the -Infantile Paralysis. Fund. We in'this town don't d'o anything In that line for'those poor children, and u substantial contribution from o sports event would be that much extra to add to the borough's March of Dimes quota. I know that Ch-airman Frank Green would 5-ay that this idea is a very good one and he would cooperate. Here is my-suggestion : : Wo could arrange a sports night at the YMCA for this affair. Thero are four good teams in the boroujri, the High School, Purple Knights, Zephyrs and U. S. Rubber. They eoula play some nig-Wt they are'n'ot otherwise scheduled. I know that the managers -and players of these teams would gladly give -.heir services free We could name a committee arid call a meeting some night next week. We could also c'ontact the owners 1 of the' Bowling alleys in town to lave one night for this great cause Toping that this goes over (vith ,1 bang for the March of Dimes. I remain. You IT in sport, Frank Shea. PURDUE HEADMAN T *•••**« furple Knights To Take Part In March Of Dimes Benefit rfi> learn Prospect Hands Salem First Grammar School Defeat Agree To- Meet U. S. Rubber, But Ask For Oppor- tuhity To Take Floor At Full Strength The Purple Knights have voted to acrept the invitations to.partici- pate In the March of Dimes benefit at the Y Friday evening Jan. 31. However, they .have asked for a change in order of games. Manager Waiter Ploski explained that because of work schedules two first .string members ol the Knighti would -not be able to play if the ;amc went on early. He therefore requested that the Knlght-U. S, Rubber , played last: A rather intense rivalry exisU Between the Rubber team and the Knights and it would be unfair for either team to, be forced to take tho floor at anything less than full strength. Consequently, Postmaster Frank T. Green, chairman of the rlrive for funds, readily agreed Vo the request for change. Both teams will go all out to win .his Rame; the Knights especially are out to keap as many wins BJ possible on their record which now tands at nine-out of II. The Rubber team, on the other ia.nd, is regarded by 'many as the jest team m the'borough and will : out to live up to this »pprai»a!.. Both Manager Eddie Nolde of the Morticians and Coach Ed Mcarthy of the Pout Office Big Five •eadily -agreed to-the time change. •We can beat the Post Office any nour of Ihe day or night," Noldc declared "Anv time is all right with jjs," McCarthy had this to say: " just a* Mom of well for the. Morticians, their ream arc well along in years and may not be u«td to staying, up a* late as the game wa« originally •chcdulml for. W« don't want, them to be under any handicap when we beat them." Thus, with- the change agree&bl* to <\U parties concerned, the committee In charge .rearranged the schedule to brine- the Mortien-Posit Office together in the first game and the Knights-Rubber together In the R»cVjnrt. Felix Zembrugki and hli orchestra will play lor dancing after thp games. Posters announcing the affair will be distributed to stores, restaurants and other business establishments throughout the borough in a day or two. Those posters are the work of Charlie DeCarlo, high school football leUcrman and 1946 captain. John Tyler waa the first vice president who became president. He was elevated-to the office of chief executive after the death of William Harrison. r 'NO«l „ net ToiMim mtw . .. • Burnt* MEREMTN I leHyFlEll | OF micE & men (ON CHMNir Jr. Kedsters Play Bridgeport Brass This Evening Coach Milt-Ripley's United States Rubber Kedstere journey to Brldge- >ort tonight where they will run ip against the strongest opposition hey have met this season in a Bridgeport Brass team which has ost only one game to date and is .he defending State and Eastern States industrial champions.

Mr. Frank Shea Borough. Dear Frank: Thank you for your letter; it contains an excellent, suggestion. I shall have to ask your pardon for not answering sooner, but when I received your letter I knew that something similar to what you sug-- Rested was already irr the works, and I wanted lo waitjuntil I had something definite to Report. Now I don't have to report. 'It's all been in the papers these past two days. Let's hope the basketball affair goes over with a bang- I suspect that you will be called on to help, because Chairman Frank T. Green is to name a committee of prominent local sports figures, and 1 think you will be asked to serve because of your long- association with borough sports. You or any other committee member can feel free to call on the sports editor of the NEWS-to help in any way he can. In view of the fine spirit of cooperation shown by everyone concerned, no one should shirk doing his-bit.

The score wan 23-21, Salem got off to a fast start and ran up 8 points before Prospect was able to score, giving indication at this point in the game that their unbeaten record was in no danger. However. Prospect came back strong and by the end of the first half had gone into the lead by a H-10 count.
