Today's prospectors are soldiers stationed in Altiku. Their gold i-iidh Is sponsored by the USO und i« filassocl as off-duty recreation. But that Uopsn't koep tho GI "sour- doiif;liM' 'from hoping to .strike it rich. Confronted by soldiers freshly arrived from the United States for podt-wnr duty a.nd demanding "the s.hort£st way to an undiscovered gold mine," the USO leased eifrht old mining claims near Fairbanks. There the otT-duty miners pan for ffold nnd dream of the day they become millionaires. USO hostesses, most of them native Alaskans, cTrivu the sol'dlcrs as far as possible over rouffh mountain roads in station wafrons. On the last part of the trip to the 1 claims, the GI's have to puck their ru «i!id shovels fhrough the gorjccs just as the old-timers did. Living: nearby is a veteran sourdough who supplies {'hie novico prospectors with, advice on panning techniques, between tall tales of the Klondike's history. The service men, however, will never pet rich at the rate they're lnfr. Tf ic best of them -have been unable to pan moro than $5 worth of Bold a day.

Big Chet Uscakie wicz gave an exhibition of indi vidual , basketball . superiority l»e fore almost 2,000 gans "that stil has -'people who saw the game 'tnlk ing. Six weeks ag-o Gbe.t was con .sidered just o. trifle, below any. of the other four' fij-Kt-Htringers in playing ability. 'His complete chance in sUtug is'due mainly to one factor-^aggressivencss. Chet began the • season lacking experience. Too little playing time was responsible for .jccoaiona! indications of- uncertain ability on hl« part In earlier Xfimes. However, Chet was- al vvr.ys trying-. In every game his propensity to jft-t in and Jlght for the ball waa uipfHmnt. He acquired polish as time wont on, and about five weeks, 3%o fang began to notice his sm-aothcr performance. Never much .011 sharpshooting, lie gave a bos- ke-t-making performance against Seymour at the local V gym on Jan. 11 that -tet-t spectators-greatly surprised and just as greatly pleased. Ohet was the only Greyhound whose performance agai Torrington was up u> par, giving indications of things to come. Saturday ni^ht Chet -was at his peak—a peak he had arrived at only because he never laid down and never ceased to try his hardest. People who saw KauRatuck beat Le-jv<;n'.vor|h arc still talking about how Cviet controlled the backboards. They ore stjli talking about how Ttch pulJed away from the Greyhounds whenever Chet was out of uhc ball jjam"> u.nd how LVit Grcynounds cujnw l>:iL'k w.hen diet WUH in. Hownvsr. the important factor in Chcl's performance wan not t2i$- .:ernable from watching t!in Lcav- ::nworU) game alone. The factor became apparently only when one jtcalled all tho other games in \vi ion be haJ played. Usoakiewicz was not a nacuiiil basketball play- If his performance had been result of certain endowmenu of nature which huxi come to him without -any effort on his part it would still have been remarkable. 3ut his performance v.-as the re- ult of continued all-out L-ffort. It as the result ol" never having let own. The skill which wai his •Saturday rvigln came as th-; result l\ie flghtiny: .spirit w.rtic.'? Jwd joen his all season long. He deserves all the more credit on that account.

The Wildcats are an improved team over what they were when Naug-atuck beat them, 60-33 uj December.; nevertheless the Grey hounda should tal:e this one by a comfortable margin. ' Principal importance 'of the name will be the opportunity it affordi for appraising Nau^aluck's chances against Ansonia when the teams meet Friday at Ansonia. The Copper City lads have a „. cent one-point victory over Tor- rlnRton Cornered on Anxonia'g home floor less than a week after Torrington beat Naugatuck, <g. 28.
