Evening Stars Individual Tournament Holds the Bowling Spotlight This Week >
MATCH WITH CONNECTICUT
ALSO GIVEN A BIG PLAY
[Work Is Started on Schedule for Big Holiday
Event Opening Thursday at Convention Hall.
John Hall Leads King Pin Qualifiers.
BY R. D. THOMAS.
WASHINGTON bowlers will focus this week on the second an
nual individual tournament, sponsored by The Washington
Star, which opens Thursday night at Convention Hall.
Entries closed last night, but how many will take part
will not be known until tomorrow’s mail is explored. Applications
postmarked yesterday will be accepted. It is assured the field will be
the largest ever to compete in a singles tournament here.
Work on the schedule was started last night at the hall by Earle
D. Stocking, manager of the giant establishment; Arville Ebersole,
secretary of the Washington City Duckpin Association; Lonnie Krauss,
the Coliseum pilot; O. H. P. Scott, skilled tournament worker; Rena
Levy, anotner standby, and the writer.
It is expected the schedule, or a greater part of it, will be ready
for publication tomorrow or Tuesday. Preferred dates have been
given the entrants wherever possible. The bowlers are urged to
watch the newspapers closely, for this will be the only means of
notifying them of their dates. They are requested to appear promptly
when scheduled, thus facilitating the conduct of the tournament.
Those who do not appear will be scratched and their games fee
forfeited.
One of the last to enter was
Larry Fitzgerald, the new south
paw champion. Larry was a late
entrant also in the sweepstakes
that brought him his title.
Sharing the spotlight with the big
singles tournament will be the match
between the Grand Palace Valet team
of the National Capital League, rein
forced by Howard Campbell, and the
Connecticut All-Stars, featuring Jack
White, whom Campbell will meet in the
singles.
Leo Rinaldi, captain of the Valetmen.
has more stars in his squad than he can
use in the match. In the team event
he probably will use Max Rosenberg.
Paul Harrison. Jack Wolstenholme, Ollie
Pacini and Campbell. Rosenberg and
Harrison will shoot the doubles.
The Valttmen will go to Hartford
next Saturday, and the return engage
ment will be at the Coliseum the fol
lowing Saturday. Last night it had not
been decided definitely whether the
singles woulfi be rolled at the Coliseum
or the Lucky Strike, where Campbell
holds forth.
Nearly all leagues have suspended for
♦he holidays, but there will be plenty to
keep the bowlers interested. Special
events have been listed at most of the
alleys.
John Hall, veteran bowler of Mount
Pleasant, is leading the qualifying
scorers in the holiday elimination
tournament which gets under way at
the big King Pin establishment next
Thursday evening. Hall has recorded
some exceptional games, ranging from
155 to 123, averaging 140 for his 10
games.
Dick Woodward, sandlot base ball
arbiter, is the runnereup in the qualify
ing round to date, his 10-game total
being 1,363. A game of 159 registered
by Dave Cox is the best so far.
The qualifying period will close at
midnight of Christmas day, the roll-off
commencing the following night. The
standing of the highest 16 to date is
given below:

Harry Smith, youthful member of the
Hartford team of the King Pin Busi
ness Men's League, has found the five
back game being played at King Pin
No. 2 alleys much to his liking. He
is far ahead of the qualifying scorers,
the finals of which will commence on
Wednesday, January 8.
Rated as only a mediocre performer
at the regular duckpin game, Smith has
developed into an outstanding star at
the new type of game and appears to
be strictly the one to fear in the com
ing tournament. His best 10 games to
date show the amazing total of 2,132,
better than a 213 average, and a game
of 288 rolled by him is the highest
recorded in the city up to the present
tim®
ooe McGolrick. captain of -the Meyer
Davis team in the District League, is
another who has taken up the new
style of game with more than marked
success, turning in a score of 280 the
first evening he tried it. Joe Price!
and Louis Silverberg are well up among
the leaders in the qualifying round,
which closes on Tuesday, January 7.

Penn Scores With
Cut-Back Offense
BY SOL METZGER.
Coach Eddie McNlchol of Penn’s
Eastern intercollegiate champion
ship five must have been surprised
at the far end of last season when
he saw this variation of his cut
back attack In the interscholastic
tournament held in Philadelphia.
McNlchol Invented this scheme of
offense. Here is the variation he
witnessed. It was worked against
a set defense.
No. 4 broke down and across court
©° J i

l I
as shown Just a mite of time after . .
No. 1 ran down for the foul line and i
then cut back. The play is so timed 1
that as No. 4 flashes past In front J
of No. 1, No. 2 passes. It looks like
a pass to No. 4, but No. 1 takes It.
It’s apparently a block play so
the opponents of No. 1 and 4 trade
men. But 4’s object Is to draw
No. l’s opponent Into the corner of
the court In order that No. 1, on
receiving the ball, can pivot away
from and around No. 4’s opponent,
now guarding him. and dribble to
the basket for a short shot.

VIRGINIA ATHLETES
GETTING A RESPITE
UNIVERSITY. Va.. December 21.
Athletic activities at the University of
Virginia have been suspended during
the Christmas recess.
Capt. Harrison plans to call the bas
ket ball squad together a day or two
earlier to open the regular workouts for
the court season which will begin Jan
uay 8. when Duke comes for a game.
Two weeks of workouts will be in
order for the boxing team before the
opening meet against Virginia Poly, in
Blacksburg on January 18.
Johnny La Rowe, head coach of the
ringmen, has had a good sized squad in
action throughout the Fall.
The wrestlers start the same time
that the boxers get into action. The
first mat engagement is against Wash
ington and Lee.
Several dates are still to be added
to the swimming schedule. As it stands
now the natators will have their first
meet January 21 against Delaware, in
Wilmington.
No January events have been ar
ranged for the indoor track men. but it
is probable that part of the squad will
perform in Madison Square Garden be
fore the month has passed.
The annual indoor invitation games
here February 18 and the Southern
Conference meet in North Carolina arc
the most important engagements.
SQUASH RACKETS BEING
PLAYED BY WOMEN HERE
Interest in squash rackets, which for
years has been sponsored by the Racquet
Club here, is now being displayed by
women.
A feminine squad has been organized
at the new Ambassador Hotel and is
being coached by Otto Glockler, Rac
quet Club coach.
MANDLEY HOGS LAUREL
AS DUCKPIN SHOOTER
Rolls Record Average in League and
Wins Classic Stakes—Gulli Stands Out
Among Girls in Big Year.
YEAR No. 1929 fades Into happy
memory for Bradley Mandley.
bowler. The least colorful of
all the leading stars, as some
view him, but the greatest of
them all in point of effectiveness was
Mandley in this dying year.
To have established an all-time rec
ord for average in the District League
with 119 and a fraction would have
been bounteous glory for most stars,
but Mandley anti-climaxed this achieve
ment with a triumph in the Howard
Campbell sweepstakes, the game's blue
ribbon event.
He was voted almost unanimously the
No. 1 ranking of the Washington City
Duckpin Association, and the National
Duckpin Bowling Congress placed him
at the head of its list for the season
of 1928-29. So far this season Mand
ley has been a star, but has been well
short of the pace he maintained through
the last campaign.
Lorraine Gulli retained her crown as
duckpin queen, her outstanding per
formance being in the recently con
cluded Meyer Davis sweepstakes, in
which she totaled 1,029 for a nine-game
national record.
The leading team of the year was
Convention Hall, which won the Dis
trict League pennant for the fourth
straight time and then reorganized for
the current race.
In the first half of the 1929-30 sea
son Red Morgan of Convention Hall’s
new line-up is without a rival for su
premacy. He has held a pace of 123
in the District League and better than
120 in the National Capital, and likely
will carry on to a new record for the
District loop.
Perhaps the outstanding surprise of
the year was Clarence W. Taft's vic
tory in the first annual individual tour
nament sponsored by The Washington
Star, held at the Lucky Strike. Taft,
an unknown, beat a field that included
roughly 900, and among them were all
the city’s experts. His five-game score
was 854. Taft is about to defend his
honors. The second tournament, at
Convention Hall, will open next Thurs
day night.
Washington bowlers almost scored a
clean sweep in the National Duckpin
Bowling Dongress tournament held at
Richmond, taking first place in the
men’s doubles, singles and all events,
and the women’s teams, doubles, single
and all events. The Recreation Center
five of Baltimore won the only cham
pionship denied the Capital.
Roll-offs were necessary to decide two
of the titles, and only Washington bowl
ers were concerned. Howard Campbell
and Jack Whalen shot 430 to tie for
first place in the singles, and Campbell
won the roll-off. Marjorie Bradt
(Smith) and Margaret Miltner tied for
the all events title with 975, and Miss
Bradt won the roll-off.
The Washington bowlers also shared
heavily in the secondary money at
Richmond. The most consistent of the
leaders was Sam Benson of the George
town Recreation, who captured the all
events with a total of 1,141.
Many exceptional scores were rolled,
but no all-time record broken. The
best individual performance was Har
old Hodges’ 442 set. rolled early this
season in the B. Y. P. U. League.
A record field competed in the Wash
ington City Duckpin Association tour
nament at the Coliseum. There were
351 teams and a proportionate number
of doubles and singles, the prize money
totaling $3,600. Paul Harrison, now a
member of the Northeast Temple team,
was the individual star with an all
events total of 1.128.
Mandley’s victory in the Campbell
sweepstakes was decisive. He totaled
1,805 for the 15 games, against 1,777
for Clem Weidman in second place and
Howard Campbell’s 1,769 for third.
Weidman and Campbell came forward
with a rush in the last set to share the
fat purse. Both represented the King
Pin, and it was the second time each
had finished in the money.
The year saw the departure for an
other clime of two famous stars, Glenn
