New York  (,'PI  A lot of quotes about a little subject--but one of our pets---scholastic and col- i e'-" e baseball: From "Southern Coach and Ath- :,'e"--'more emphasis on baseball n high rchools would not only help -n!'.-e the player shortage, but ,.,,.dd make good cash customers ,,u of thousands of non-particl- e-mrs, who now know and care :.,:hin ˘' for the game. School ath- b:-ic officials are not crying at this fur oral Many of them remember :he days when baseball scouts would sing up their star players whi!e they were yet sophomores or juniors." From Birmingham, AI•.: "I think high school officials look on baseball as something that just has to be, so they spend as little out of the football till as possible. Uniforms aren't too flashy and the general equip- ment is no better. Season is short: games are scheduled through the week on obscure fiends: umpiring isn't too good; American Legion baseball goes good and, I think, has a lot to do xxith the de-emphasis of the high school brand." From Connecticut: "Nearly every school plays it. An effort several years ago to put on a state tourney a','racted a good entry but didn't arouse too much interest. Basket. ball packed 'era in nightly, where- as baseball didn't draw flies, main- iy because of the hours. No effort as been made to put on a baseball tvuraey since."

Nothing, except the time of year it is played. Principal Jo. W.

From minor league headquar- ters: "Anything th&t is practical, within reach financially and for the best of the game will find me in one hundred percent accord."

Lunch, re- freshments and entertainment were on the bill of fare for more than 100 guests. Seats of honor were set for the famous Snow Blowers team who, after 27 years of kegling, be- came a war casualty but have indi- cated a resumption of activities in the league next season. Suitable awards were presented winners in the two divisions for the season's play. A. B. Schmitz and Bell Clothing House tied for the top spot in the Tuesday night division followed closely by the Toppi Decorators in third place. Congress Club and Jer- ry's Good Luck Service tied for top honors in the Wednesday night division with Miller High Life and O'Brien's Tavern in a tangle for the third place notch. In a playoff at the close of the scheduled competi- tion the Schmitz Insurance keglers knocked off its rivals to become league champions. In the individual efforts Fritz Orth, with a 182 mark, and Jack Klopstein holding a 176 average, led their respective leagues for the season's play. Carl Ferch closely followed Orth with a mark of 180. A 627 series netted Ferch the three- game high total in the Tuesday league while Klopstein had a 637 total for best effort in the Wednes- day league. Eddie Sehmitz had the best solo effort in the Tuesday league, a 257. Pete Sadowski turned in a neat 258 count for high in the Wednesday league followed by Bob Ryan with 255. Tourney is Over In the tournament for local Eagle keglers, recently closed at the club, Earl Caddock and "Ozzie" Schrnitz emerged as doubles cham- pion on 1,222, followed by "Outch" Lemke and Harold Herrmann hay- ing a pin total of 1,184. Matt Burg- hardt and Jake Herrmann copped show money on 1,105. Low figure to enter the doubles prize list is 1,045. Bob Sehmidt took the singles crown with a husky total of 640 fol- lowed by Bob Jonson with 010 and a 595 effort by Charley Antaramian. The low figure in the singles came to 561. Lemke became leader with 1.855 bowling from scratch while John Foley led with a handi- cap of 1,709. The total entry for the tourney included 34 five-man teams, 66 duos in the doubles competition and 123 individuals in the singles. Goodfellowship prizes have been awarded to non-winners in the keg- ling competition and all prizes can be claimed by individual winners at the Eagles club.

The "700" tourney is re- puted to be the first of its kind ever staged in the country. Pitching Should Make Reds Strong Pennant Contender New York -- aJ.D -- If, as the experts insist, good pitching is going to be the measure of difference between Major League clubs in this third wartime season, the time has come to take the Cincinnati Reds seriously. Season after season, the expert has a starting staff consisting of Waiters, Elmer Riddle, Tom de La Cruz and Joe Beggs, and though there are other eligibld, he hasn't needed them up to now. Riddle, backed up by some lusty hitting for the first time this sea- son, won his second game yesterday, art artful 10 to 3 job against the St. Louis Cardinals, losing their first game. He allowed eight hits and eased up only in the late innings ! after the Red batters gave him a fat lead by knocking Morton Cooper, Cardinal ace out of the box in the first innin,g. Cooper, failing to finish for the second time, didn't retire a man and his brother Walker made hurling of the Reds goes to waste because the team has lacked hitting. :It may be that way again this year, but the way the Cincinnati hurlers are performing to date, they could Win games with the puniest kind of hitting• Btaff is Strong In winning four out of five games to date, the starting pitcher has finished his full game shift each time.

IWaukeoanHas Seas0ned Aces F0r EasyWin By EDDIE McKENNA Kenosha News Sports Editor An unseasoned squad studded with sophomores who show signs of developing into steady scorers as the schedule progresses carried Ke- nosha high school's track and field cause against Waukegan Tuesday afternoon at Lake Front stadium, but their best efforts were futile and they succumbed to a more ex- perienced, well-balanced rival, 66˝ to 46i. Cold weather was a handi- cap to all the thinlies while the track was soggy from recert rains and the pits damp and muddy. It was the 1944 bow for the Red Fliers, but for the northern Illinois invaders, the meet was the fourth of the season with the Lake County champions victorious on each oc- casion. Horlick Here Friday Kenosha makes its second ap- pearance on the stadium track this week encountering Racine Horlick at 4 o'clock Friday afternoon, free to the public. Coaches Jack Peel and L. E. Engle figure the expert. ence gained yesterday should bol- ster the chances for an improved performance against a Horllck line- up that is more on a par with the . ,t of lo events, Waukegan scam- pered off with eight and tied one. Last minute incligibilities for scho- lastic deficiencies incurred by some "key" Kenosha point possibilities also raised havoc with the Reds' hopes. In two events, the invaders won all three places -- the 440 yard run and broad jump -- accounting for 30 points, a main factor in Waukegan's win. Martin Setter, undefeated all last season in the half.mile, and hold- ing the second best time for all Wisconsin preps in that specialty, picked up where he left off by ,breezing to an easy triumph• He was so far ahead that he fairly walked in the last 50 yards after nearly laping the field. He then flashed back later to capture the mile run, barely shading Dick Fir- chow, his teammate, who ran splen- didly in his debut. Harold Pauschert, a seasoned campaigner like Setter, lived up to standards and churned an easy win in the 120 yard high hurdles. Show- ing fine form gliding over the bar- riers, and smooth, speedy strides in between, his class was apparent all the way. Bob Remstad tied for first in the high jump, and was third for Ke- nosha in the shot put. Waukegan produced Corbett, a sprinter, to match Setter's two wins. The invading star won both the 100 and 200.yard dashes with Bob Young, Kenosha, second in the century, and third in the 200 while Pauschert was second in the 200.

Today, with both practical and patriodc reasons for prolonging the life of every automobile, no sane car owner will risk using anything but high quality motor oil.
