Three hitters are shown on the rec

Tonngstown midget. All three can
plunk the pill In the minors and look
like fair prospects with the stick in

OLD TENPIN RECORD
Establishes New Mark for High Set in Colonial League But
One Day Left to Enter Intercity Tournament.
By KIRK C.
Bans! Another record smashed.
Who? Mister George Scharf. Where?
At Palace Alleys, when he was bowling
for the Continentals, of the Colonial
Ltague. Yes, Scharf broke the league
record for high set by totaling 702 pins
in the three games, which resulted In
scores of 236, at and 536. This mark is
sixteen pins better than the Colonial
League record established by Harwood,
of the Pilgrims, two seasons ago.
Scharf a performance In making a new
mark for the Colonial Leaguers to fol
low was a distinct surprise to those
who watched his sensational rolling
last night. Since the Inauguration of
the league Scharf has been the best
flat bowler In the city, and his
bouncing out of his regular stride into
the column of sattclitcs is taken as u
good omen by those who have stuck so
faithfully to the old tenpln game.
ScharTs present average reads as fol
lows: Games. 26; total pins. C.9S3; high
game, 253; high set. 702, which gives
him an average of about .170.
