X -THE DAILY INDIPINDINT, MONESSEN , AugMt II, 1957 'Had High Hopes for Thiry' - Janosik "I'm naturally sorry to-see him go 'for I had -high hopes for the boy," that's Monesseu High cage coach Frank adds, "The boy has to make a home somewhere played freshman ball here last year but has registered at Charleroi for the coming school term . . . The story of Thiry being orphaned does not need repeating but as .as Frank adds, "The boy has to make home somewhere and it was a tough decision, he's a victim of circumstances." . . . You got that feeling talking to Frank " about the boy that he was looking forward to work- -ing with Thiry and watching the progress of the development that Janosik started last season . . . By the . way, Charleroi sources are just as excited over Thiry playing football as they are over his basketball potential. * * * Buck Henry, who fights for Dr. Harold Rosenbloom of Charleroi, but resides here had quite a rooting section at Jeannette Thursday night when Lou Kichmko. Bill 'Killer* Cain, Ed Nasal and Joe Judge, all of the Grand Hotel, which Buck now calls home, took in the bout. Witty Kichinko says, "Buck had four real rooters and one of them a JUDGE." . * . Wow! . . . Pittsburgh's Will Greaves disappointed in his bout at Jeannette. His newly discovered KO punch didn't "explode" and Greaves dropped the decision . . , The Brownsville Horton Softball team competed in the recent World Tournament of Softball at New Bedford, III., and although eliminated made a fine showing . . . New Kensington really has the long and short of it on its football team. Dan Coury goes 6-4 and weighs 212 pounds, while teammate Pat Foley is 5-2 and weighs a mere 110. # * * Boudreau's Name Linked with Bucs · Latest name to be linked with the Pittsburgh Pirate managerial post is Lou Boudreau, recently deposed pilot of the Kansas City Athletics. Considerable sentiment is building up down Pittsburgh way, however, to give Danny Murtaugh, the current interim manager, a full-time chance . . . Considering the improved play of the Bucs of late the latter suggestion has merit . . . Speaking of baseball, how about the terrific Mon Valley League series between New Eagle and Charleroi? 'Hounds to BattleWith Lion 11 "We're gradually rounding 1 shape and beginning to look like a ball club but I'll know mor about them after this morning' scrimmage session with Greensburg," Coach Armand Niccolai o the Monessen High Greyhounds re ported this morning. Despite the ram and probabb muddy field, Niccolai planned on sending his lads against Bobbj Williams' squad around 10 o'cloc] this morning. As to his starters Nick stated hft wouldn't be sure until they tool the field although he was certain about several positions, at least for a "try". "We'll have Paul Tobacco, m 'handyman' shifting to end to team with Dennis O'Toole, he said Tobacco, a senior, goes 160 O'Toole, also a senior goes 165 bu neither are exceptionally tall, Pau at 5-10, Dennis 6-0. Niccolaf also said he would al ternate Dan Barton, 160-pound sen ior holdover at quarterback with Carl Payne, 165-pound junior "Both have been throwing weli,* slated the 'Hound coach. Andy Carollo, 170-pound sophomore fullback candidate will ge the nod there in the absence o Carl Rattay who is still nursing an injury. Right halfback Joe Karbowsky has returned to drills after bet sidelined with an injury, so he'll undoubtedly sec considerable action, "Today will help tell the story of how much progress we've made in the first two weeks ol drills,' added the Greyhound mentor. That New Eagle team was really a surprise as they kept extending Charleroi despite losing Lou Sepe, their clutch player and having Gene Uhlman hobbled with an arm injury. Frank Furiga can certainly get the most out of a team. * * » Lost m the excitement of Jay Peake winning the national archery title was the accomplishment ot Monessen archer Lou Tatsch, who made a good showing in the meet in which Jay won · the title . . . Lou is no slouch with the Robin Hood armament . . , Despite bowing out of the ' PONY League World Series the Donor a PONY All-Star team deserves a hand for a job well done and the same goes for the managers of the down- river team . . . It was wonderful that the Valley team would play their winning game in the tournament the night Donora's favorite son, Stan Musial, was on hand at the series . . . In fact, that night Chuckle Cuilfrida hurled a one-hitter. Stan had a couple ol nephews on the Donora team. Jimmy Chacko Not in CHS Grid Plans Charleroi has lost another player who would undoubtedly have helped Coach Rab Currie this season. He is standout sophomore end of last season Jimmy Chacko, who reportedly was going to be shifted to halfback this year. He hasn't reported for drills as yet and Coach Currie says. "Since he hasn't reported, we have to presume he will not be out and are not considering him in our plans for this season." . . . Chacko reportedly is suffering a bone chip in his leg ... It has also been, rumored he favors a baseball career » . .

Fraley Proves Adage All Can't Be Athletes CIDDAD TRUJILLO (UP)--The .By OSCAR FRA1JEY news today, fellow spectators, is that we can't all be athletes. This point has been d r i v e n home, rather painfully, by a muscular monster named Jimmy Caesar, Jimmy is a blue - eyed Co- jnanche from Oklahoma who doesn't like to see people resting what laughingly are called their muscles. What it amounts to is that Jim* my has improved on the ancient wigwam hobby of burning people at the stake. · Caesar, to give you the complete fill-in, has more of · past than the lady who was known as Lou. He has been, more or less hi order, a stakes - winnning jockey, a ' Golden Gloves boxing champ, an Olympic diver (the l a t t e r two hiving no connection in this case), ~s · hockey player, speed skater, 'let show headlines, actor, stunt man, aqua show star, physical ed- d a diving instructor «cacfl, Currently brass as swimming and trampoline coach at the plush and polished El Embajador Hotel here In the Dominican Republic. As such, he is the only jarring note in an otherwise serene vacation mecca. "You must," he said, flexing more muscles than * burlesque chorus line, "try the trampoline." This, it might be explained, is a sort of canvas bedspring gadget: which works on the same princi~ pie as a midget being tossed in « blanket. It must be conceded that I *m buil 4 somewhat more like. Lou Costello than Victor Mature, but I'll try anything once if the "price is right This was lre«, and, unfortunately, 1 tried it more than once under the Indian torturer with the Roman name.

Browning, "Well, almost anybody can do it," he corrected himself, brushing pieces of concrete off mv knees and elbows. "The idea Is to stay on ihe trampoline. Now try it again, and I'll tell' you how I skated with Sonja Henie, or maybe how I won the Golden Gloves at Chicago in 1933." He didn't seem much interested in the fact that his paleface victim, after too much sun anct too much trampoline, was one - half burnt orange and one-half black and blue.
