CRACK ARRAY OF ETNA PiNSTERS DOMINATE FIFTH ANNUAL WEST PEKN DUX SWEEPSTAKES Pittsburgh, Pa. The 5th Annual West Pcnn Dux Sweep stakes went on record with 522 lines of bowling and with a range of participation from as far off as Donora in one direc tion and Aliquippa in the other. The Strand Alleys on January 31st from 1:00 P. M. on until the finish were marked with a steady trek of C. F. U. keglers. A dozen or so last minute en trants had to be turned down because their participation would have prolonged the Sweepstakes to a point where the final re sults would have been also de layed. We regret this but such is the case when would-be en trants fail to heed reams of ad vance publicity. George Lisjak, Jr. of the Lib erties Lodge 234, took the men's A. floor.

The bowling committee and the executive board of "Zora" Lodge 351 are working together to make this one of the greate st tournaments in C. F. U. his tory. It isn't too early to get your teams together and to make preparations to come to our great city. We shall do ev erything to make your visit with us a very pleasant one. As has been stated before the bowling will take place at the Detroit Recreation, just walk ing distance from the Sheraton Cadillac Hotel.

So keep watching your Zajedničar for further three progress of our plans. Helen A. Stimac, Scribe Jokers Not Joking In Supreme Office League Pittsburgh, Pa. The Jok ers of the Home Office League who haven't played the role of a losing team since the second half opened, lead the circuit with a record of 11—4. In addition to the Trumps who have tagged them in the race, the Diamonds running out their skein of victories to five in the past two weeks, also find themselves two games behind the Jokers. High average teams as the Hearts and the Spades, the for mer the fast half titlists, find themselves in the lower division, I four games or better out of first For place. Rumor has it (čuje se) the that the Clubs have signed a "rookie" and that they will soon be fighting for a top division berth. Over the four weeks interim covered herein the four top male triples have been Joseph Bella, 459 Joe Plese, 455 John Bro nich 192—449 Eli Maletic, 437, and Dr. Arch with a single high ers to hurdle from fourth place to a game within the leaders, of 197. The ladies in our cir This was possible because a ful ly recovered Dr. Pepper Bev erages team downed the Match en Florists to make it a three second place cuit can well point to such high triples as Lenore Zvonkovich. 179 418 Martha Lukctich, 163 —367: Louise Grasha, 365, and Catherine Leppold 355. The Jokers with 529 and 1474 have amassed the most pins for one and three games, reason enough why they will be difficult to dislodge from the envious pusition they now hold. Frank Braidie, Scribe Welland League Teams Out To Unsaddle Kings Welland, Ont. Whereas the previous lane session of the Lodge 617 League produced a i271-- 727 score by Zvonko Goj merac and an even 600 triple by John Gojmerac, the January 27th meet could not even come better than with a pair of 545 triples by the same two indi viduals as the best among the bowlers. Katie Buban rackcd up the one game highs two weeks in v row. The three game high went single game of the Sweepstakes. Evelyn Trdina copped the wom en's singles title for 1954 with a 424 series. The Etna tide roll ed on when Evelyn Trdina and Ann Rukavina teamed up with a 738 for the women's doubles trophies. The women's high single game of 217 by Ann Rukavina teamed with Joe Tomichek in the mixed doubles abetted their cause of winning with a 972 score as a duet. Thus the Etna-ites comb ed the Sweepstakes larder quite well, getting five of the eight C. F. U. awarded trophies. A more complete list includ ing all cash prize winners ap pears in this issue of the Zajed ničar. At this time we wish to, publicly, thank all those who were instrumental in recruiting the entries. Also the score keepers, too numerous to men tion, by name who enabled us to walk off the alleys fifteen minutes after the Sweepstakes closed with the list of winners under our arm. Farrell Tourney Hosts Pen Reservation Memo Farrell, Pa. This city near the Penna-Ohio line is girding itself for the 11th Annual CFU Basketball Tournament to hold sway over the April 2-3-4, 1954, weekend.

John Pandža, Chairman Onyx Deuces Now Tops In Motor City Circuit Detroit, Mich. The Onyx Deuccs after having greased the skids for the Woodchoppers, 3—1 the week previous, the Sun Shiners completed the job of dumping the then leaders. The Onyx Deuces, meanwhile, at the January 31 session of the De troit Ladies League beat the Onyx Jets 3—1 to take over the top position. The Sparks have really moved fast the past two weeks as their five wins in the last six have moved them into a second place tie with the former leaders and within two games of the Onyx Deuces. Someone had to be the door mat to all this shuffling of teams and the unfortunate lot fell to the last place Unlucky Five who went pointless the past two meets. Mitzie Derifay has monopol ized the sessional triple honors on both occasions by rolling 457 and 458 on successive nights, leaving the one game category, one week to Dolores Urish, 176, and on January 31st to Vickie Noll and Helen Hecimovich, each coming thru with games of 169.

Eagles Retain Command In Lodge 650 Circuit Toronto, Ont. The Eagles continue to come up .with good team scores, mostly sessional highs, and thus retain their lead among the Lodge 650 keglers. At the January 30th session they were somewhat extended even though they did compound the second best team scores, 1133—3066, as the Maroons hammered out a new high in 1157. The Hawks dropped the first two games to the Hercegovians with whom they were tied for second place. A three way tie ex ists now between the Hawks, the Canadiens and the Indians, while a game removed are the Beavers and the Maroons, all knotted at 8—10 for that rung position. John Lozo has been firing that minera lite with some ac curacy to take the male three game laurels two weeks running with 764 and 705. For one game honors it has been Peter Pavlo vich, 288, and George Petarma nec, 298. Evelyn Monico and Rose Misetich showed up best among the girls with 226—558 and 236—604, respectively. The spotlight also got around to the following in a lesser light, Peter Pavlovich, 687 George Petarmanec, 674 Sam Lauc, 669 Tony Lozo, 665 Viola Mi setich, 563 Katie Pavlovich, 235—529, and Ann Filipovich, 519. Northern Cal Bowlers Battle For Leadership Oakland, Calif. The Janu ary 24th session of the C. F. U. Northern California Traveling League which numbers eight teams left a three way tie, the Lodge 929 bowlers contributing to the situation by taking two games from the Sv. Vincenca team. The third team in this melee, the Cork n' Bottle pinsters slid in on two closely fought games. They lost the opener by more than 150 pins to the Yerba Buenas but took the next two by five and eleven sticks. The Apple Knockers in spite of losing to the other Yerba Buena team, hammered out a new team triple of 2326 for the record. So did the victors with a one game total of 841. The best team one game high over the three weeks, though, was forged at this session by the Velebit Aces with a total of 854. Roy Clay made a few changes in the men's individual highs with his 216—584 card as did A1 Sankovich with a triple fig ure of 540 Kay Jagich and Stel la Jagich ran up three game marks of 476 and 456, each good for the best thus far this season. Mah-Val League Starts Second Half Of Chase Youngstown, Ohio The first half of the Mahoning Valley Bowling League came to a close on January 21st with the Tigers the titlists with a 29—16 record. It is ironical that the Tigers while they took the one game citation with 858, they had to step aside in the three game field to the Browns with 2423 and the White Sox, 2403. Back to the half's final team standing where the Yankees and the Red Sox are tied at 22—23 and in third place where the Browns and the Indians are knotted at 21—24. The last place White Sox have the one consolation that they are but one game removed from the last mentioned two. Walter Kunovich with 598 and Chester Hlasta, 245, Ann Chockcy, 484, and Fran Rogan with 194 pulled in the best in dividual scores up to the mid way point. Joe Budak, 597, John Yancar, 583, Charles Isakovich, 238, Eleanor Pucak, 481, Fran ces Rogan, 465, and Ann Chockey with 192 stood by with the complimentary scores. The first thirteen weeks pro duced some exciting competition and we hope that the second half primes us even more for the Tenpin Tournament in De troit. BiH Preveč, Sec'y.

The Conway Lodge 540 playing its first bas ketball game insofar as local C. F. U. annals go came through with a hard fought victory, 76 63, over the New Brighton Dukes. Both teams put on a last quar ter rally, the C. F. U. cagers holding their margin 27—21 in that chapter of play. Mike Karas led with eleven baskets from the floor and three out of six from the foul line. The team is com posed of last year's C. F. U. Junior champions. Under the management of Bill Pandak, coach, and Ed Sabolic, the lodge sports director, the team has its sights set on the C. F. U. Basketball Tournament where they hope to post a senior divi sion entry out of this squad. A week later, Sunday Janu ary 24th, the Lodge 540 cage men outscored the Patrols in every period to end a 12 point victor by the score 82—70. This game was the second big team game as we dub them locally and the victory puts the Lodge 540 basketeers in high spirits. After hitting a hot spree in the second period on January 31st in their match with the Gor necki Aces of Beaver Falls, the C. F. U. team held onto their 15 point half time lead. They kept pace with their opponents in the second half. The Gornecki Aces have won quite a few games before this loss. Leading the scoring in our behalf were Vlasic, 28 points, Don Mahli, 23, and M. Karas, with 20 markers. Richards and James of the Aces with 31 and 23 points bore watching on our part.
