Frank Braidic, Director Sports -Educational Dept. Omaha Basketeers Bop District's Top Quints Omaha, Neb. The Lodge 101 cagers have copped six more games while losing two. In CYO league competition the boys tripped Immaculate Conception, 40—30 downed Ho ly Cross. 48—27 and went on to humble the weak St. Mar garet-Mary team, 54—21. They stopped the Holy Family bas- upset St. The win over St. Wenceslaus netted us a tie for the lead with the losers as well as avenging our only defeat in the CYO league. Glancing at the scoring col umn, we find George Kocsis pac ing the ICC win with 15 while Stan Macaitas had 17 against Holy Cross. Mickey Bizal led the St. Margnret-Mary rout with 19 points while Kocsis and Stcrba collected ten apiece in the win over Holy Family. The big win over St. Wen ceslaus saw team performance with Macaitas leading the way with 16, Kocsis and Sterba with 12 each and Bizal with 11 tallies. In non-league games, the men found the opposition a bit rough as they lost two out of three games. In a pair of games with Ashland Park, we nipped them 46 44 and then in a return game saw a stall backfire in the dying seconds to give them a 43 42 win. The Blue Trotters handed the boys a 57-48 loss to round out th? reporting. The appearance of Jim Demp sey in the lineup has helped the team. Jim was laid up for quite a spell with a badly damaged ankle in the loss to Ashland Parkers. The Nest team extended their winning skein to five by beat ing Ashland Fosh, 41—29 Wheeler Memorial, 36— 21 Woodson Center. 28—23 and Social Settlement, 49—32. The kids played their best game of the vear in their win over Ashland Frosh with Ray League scored a 60 45 victory Rhye pacing the victory with over Team No. 4 to pick up its second win in the local C.

Swar ney was tops for the losers with eleven tallies, one ahead of his mates B. Micklos and Fink. In another league tussle, Team No. 2 won out over Team No. 3. 48—37. 13 markers. An early lead proved too much for the opposi tion to overcome as we held a convincing 23-11 halftime lead. Jerry Malolepszy with 14 points paced the win over Wheeler Me morial on the Settlement court while John Kresnik tallied 9 as we stopped Woodson Center on their floor. The play of .Tim Kros and Jim Kasun. a couple of graders, was impressive in the win over So cial Settlement. Kros garnered six besides playing a fine de fensive game. Little Jimmy Kasun finally broke the scoring shackles as he registered his first field goal of the season for the Nest. This was quite a feat for this 11 year old lad. being that he is playing against superior competition. We can add that the CFU basketball activity has received must fall and so it was on Feb-i^np recognition by the local ruary 3rd when the second place 1 sportswriters because of the fine Team No. 4 upset the leading Team No. 1, 64—54, to bring about an interesting three way tie for the lead. G. Fink was high man for the Quads with 21 points, Mishler coming through with 18 and B. Micklos with 16. The winners opened fire early and were never trailing there after. M. Gojmerac did his best with seven baskets and two fouls to keep his team in the fight. play. Needless to say that the Farrell tournament in April also holds much attention locally.

Aiuu'uiula, Mont. ell, we're back again and really ex cited about the forthcoming CFU Bowling Tournament, slat ed to be hosted this year by Anaconda, on Sunday, March 21 and 28,1954. evolved a,nd by the prescribed rules published in the Zajedni čar prior to the tournpment dates which arc Friday, Satur dav and Sunday, April 2, 3, and 4,1954. As we always say, we hail from the finest place in the world and we're plenty proud of it too. We're a little slow in getting our news in the "Zee" but maybe we'll put a little pres sure on now and mend our ways. Although Anaconda was chosen as the site for this year's tourney, the event will be a split affair since, being the perennial procrastinators that we are, we nine senior teams and five from ing alleys. It seems that b°wl" many organizations are planning tournaments at the same time. Now, we have to resort to open alleys at the Winter Gar den Maple Lanes in Butte and after the final shift on the 28th, return to Anaconda where we will award trophies and put on the feed bag. Speaking of eats, we hope that our spread will be. on the p.ar with the one Butte placed be fore us last year. Don't for a minute think we are partial, be cause we were born and raised in Anaconda, but you really can't blame us for tossing or chids to Butte for a fine recep tion it gave us. George Stokan is handling the tourney this year, assisted by able supporters John Herbolich, George Stergar and John Jur cich. Deadline for entry blanks and banquet reservations is March 14th, so let's get on the ball and send them in. All those who wish to partici pate, please get in touch with one of the above mentioned of ficers. Just let us know you are interested and another team can be picked up for competition. Dodgers Start Eyeing Canton League Bunting Canton, Ohio The big ques tion in the Lodge 514 League appears to be stopping the Dodgers team. They ran their string of victories to nine straight on February 13th against the Lodgemen. At the present they enjo a three game margin and a 38—22 record. A team that has been doing almost as good if not with more gusto have been the Jacobs Waltner keglers in second place, who first one week then an other have broken their own league team records with 871 2379. The Macks in third place have been able to pick up but one win in the last six games with the Uhls one notch below them having fared somewhat better with two wins over the same period. Herman Rosetti with 223—610 and then Lou Marich, 593, and John Weyandt with 219 blasted the maples with best consisten cy. Dorothy Brown at two con- secutive sessions ran off with the feminine highs, those of 163-437 on February 13th be ing the best. Pressing her were Millie Jacksich, 422, and Rose Eslieh with 160. Others getting on the fringes of this class were Steve Bozu rich, 547, John Comsia, 539, Pa uline Lenardos, 406, and Harriet Bozurich, 102. The league now has twenty weeks under its belt, a lot of it having been good practice for the Detroit tournament and very much of it good clean competi tion looked forward eagerly each week at the Castamall Alleys. Mah-Val Red Sox Find Loop Lead in Jeopardy Youngstown, Ohio The Red Sox have managed to stay on top of the Mahoning Valley League although the Indians and the Tigers are in hot pur suit at a distance no greater than two games even for the third place team. Joe Budak for three straight weeks has walked «ff the male one game sessional high honors, the best of which was a 223 score and only at the February 11th did a 583 of his also cop the men's three game high. On other occasions it was Bill Pre več with 552 and Zort Chockey with 532 garnering this honor. Over the past three sessions the feminine sessional honors were taken by Ann Chockey, 179 498, Fran Rogan, 165 434, and Tillie Krolop, 166 460, in that order. Other three game highs over the same period were Bill Kran ccvich, 547 Bill Preveč, 539: John Matunc, 535 Marie Isako vich, 402 Ann Vutuc, 416 and Eleanor Pucak, 384. March 21-28 Dates Of FRIDAY, MARCH 26, OFFICIAL DEADLINE FOR Montana State Tourney TWENTIETH ANNUAL TENPIN TOURNEY ENTRIES Detroit, Mich. The month, of March marks an important step leading to the forthcom ing 20th Annual Tenpin Tourna ment of the Society. Tournament entrants will give their highest league average of 30 games or more (not com posite) as of the week ending March 1, 1954, to compute their handicap for this tournament. The handicap allowance for men will be 75r/, of the differ ence between 200 pins and the highest league average. For the ladies it will be 75^ of the dif ference between 180 and the highest average as of the week ending March 1, 1954. Entrants v/1 ut league con nections for the current season, or the previous season, shall be classified as 160 average bowl ers for the men, and 140 for the women. The maximum han dicap in all cases will be 45 pins per game. On this basis there is no need for entrants to hold back much longer after the present week and the current issue of the Za jedničar. In fact some could send in their entries immediately and follow with the league secre tary's average sheet, which is a must, once it is ready. The deadline for the entry blanks, as you know to allow making and publishing the tour nament schedule, is midnight, Friday, March 26,1954. It was the pleasure of yours truly as the tournament chair man in company with Matt Go retta, Supreme Board member from Deroit, to visit the Home Offices on Monday, February 16th. At that time we discusscd in person many angles of the Treasure State Lodges Map Tournament Plans Anaconda. Mont. This to lay to bed any doubts and also answer many queries is an of ficial announcement that the 4th C. F. U. Montana State Bowling Tournament will be held in Butte with the banquet the evening of March 28th to be held in Anaconda. By normal procedure of al ternating the bowling was to take place in Anaconda this year. However, we are not as endowed with alleys as some of our eastern metropolises which again in Butte. Even at that the bowling will be done over the weekends of March 21 and 28. This in brief will have to suffice for the pres ent, although we promise you more details and tournament publicity in the issues of the Zajedničar to follow. Until then John Herbolich. 716 East Oak Street, Anaconda, Montana, will be your best point of tournament contact. The local committee had an enthusiastic session Sunday afternoon, Feb ruary 14th, which was punctu ated with a desire that if pos sible, the Butte, Montana colony would like to be represented at the 1955 Tenpin Tournament in Chicago with at least a few teams. What can we say to one team in 1954 at the tournament in Detroit this coming May 6 to 9, inclusive? John Herbolich, Scribe Leopards Pass Tigers In Vancouver Collision ers of the Lodge 787 Bowling League, who only the week previous shellacked the leading Leopards 4—0, fell as a first place threat when they split 2—2 with the last place Lions at the February 11th session. The Leopards consequently lead with 42 points and watch the other felines claw each other out of a threatened position. Ed Vcrsich extended a 325 into a new seasonal high of 766. Mrs. Mary Tomlenovich for a while appeared to be on the verge of breaking the existing one game feminine high of 243 held by Helen Oreskovich. but wound up the evening with the season's second best in 233. Kaye Babich, also for a time threatened Helen Oreskovich's other high of 553, but she too settled for a new runner-up in that category of 540. iournanr_ijt better and with more detail than could be han dled by means of correspond ence. To the writer it was his first visit to the C. F. head quarters. As the result of this we wi ll to place emphasis on Junior bowlers to this tournament. For Detroit in particular and neaiby C. F. U. colonies in the state of Michigan where the problem of bringing the youngsters is not as great, it is expected that we have more Junior teams than there were at the last tourna ment held in the Motor City back in 1950. Of course the jun ior end of the tournament beck ons and should to other cities too. Not to be overlooked either is the availability of the Sheraton Cadillac, a 1200 room hotel, one of Detroit's finest for this tour nament. It is Within five min utes walking distance of the De troit Recreation Alleys which makes it mighty convenient to all those registering. At the present Helen Perpich, 16876 Santa Rosa, Detroit 21, Michigan, who i: handling hotel e s e v a i o n s e o s a v i n heard from Toronto, Canada. A contingent from St. Louis, Mo., has put in a reservation for a block of 25 rooms. Additions to this list will undoubtedly mount steadily from now on. Please make yours with Helen Pcrpich as soon as possible. Of the banquet reservations we will have something to say in latter issues. In the meantime, "In '54 make it a vacation with the Croatians in Detroit." Samuel Petracich, Chair. Emil Pintar Hits 267 For Milwaukee Solo Hi Milwaukee. Wis. Emil Pin tar at the February 5th meet of the Milwaukee Mixed Handi cap League rolled a one game high of 267. This in memory of the so called old timers is the highest male one game score bowled in Milwaukee's C. F. U. bowling circles. Emil went on to finish with a 614 triple, also the sea son's high. The previous all time high was a 266 shot by Mike Gudlin in the C. F. U.'s first year in Mil- tjle bowling this year...waukee back in 1946. We'll close today's epistle by spying that Joan Bilan whose steady bowling has won her the sessional honor two weeks in a row fired a seasonal high 01 200 in her 494 series at the Febru ary 12th rolling, the second such time that she has reached the latter figure. Cleveland Teams Fear Torrid Furnacee Combo Cleveland, Ohio While the path of the leading Ezella Dress Shop manequins has been strewn with close scrapes and even a tie such as occurred on Febru ary 15th against the Vi Martin's Sportswear bowlers, the Hol land Furnaces in second place have won eight of their last nine games. But a game and a half now separates them from the Dress Shoppers. It must be said to their credit that the rise of the Holland stock in the Cleveland Ladies League was no fluke or even close with the exception of Vancouver, B. C. The Tig- the game a week ago lost on one pin to the Miles Park Flor ists. The Hollands have includ ed a new team high of 926 Another outfit posting team highs was the A. Grdina & Sons squad in 907—2571. They have run the gamut with a 2—1 show ing the past three weeks. The Grdina Recreation keg lerettes have soared upward with eight triumphs in the last three weeks, none of which, though was marked by any high scores. In the meantime the Golub Morticians have not been able to halt their slide that if not checked will drop them cut of the top division. A team that will bear watch ing is the Vi Martin Sportswear aggregation. Of them it can't be said that they had a losing night in the period covered with this writing. The latest sessionally high in- Over the past two sessions dividualists have been Olga La there have also been others who daika, 205—554: previous meets broke into the limelight with having produced Frances York, mentionable scores, namely, Bob'540 Martha Strmac and Kaye Belich with 288—656 Ivo Ma- tak, 244—534 Gus Malensek, 323—634 George Mahovlich, 543: Amelia Pavelich, 232- 511 Mary Tomlenovich, 444: Fran ces Tomlenovich. 431: Josephine Rupcic, 431, and Kaye Babich, 225. The Leopards with a team high of 1032 and the Panthers with a three game mark of 2697,, unless higher scores than have been rolled by the squads lately appear to be well entrenched in these spots. Margaret Ma lun lie Zordic with 213 each and Mary Sarapa with 236—562 to give her the top and runnerup spots in that order for the season. Martha Strmac at this session was good for 221—562. As may be expected the twelve team circuit would come up with a handful of other good triples. They were Kay Rudman 533 Olga Slapnik, 523 Mary Strahinic, 516 Helen Pokers nik, 505 Ann Perovich, 500, and Goldie Malone, 495. Etna Juniors Girding For April 10 Pinboree Etna, Pa. In an effort to get the greatest response from Etna's Nest 21 for the forth coming C. F. U. Junior Duck pin Bowling Tournament we take this means of reaching our local Juniors and their parents. The tournament as you have read in the Zajedničar, previ ously, is to be held Saturday afternoon, April 10, 1C54 at the Pantone Bros. Alleys in near by Sharpsburg. Since Etna Lodge 4 and Nest 21 has as sumed the role of the host for 1954, we naturally would at this Junior Dux Tournament like to make an appreciable showing from our own girl and boy bowl ers. All parents of the older Jun iors within our Nest 21 and especially of those youngsters who already bowl should get in touch, immediately with the Nest Manager, Mrs. Anna Kretschmaier at either 8 Morgan Street, Etna, or by Calling STerling 1-4002. Those of you who last year had the opportunity to partici pate in a similar event held in Turtle Creek—Wilmerding know that having the youngsters par ticipate both in the juniors' bowling and the social which follows is well in line of get ting and keeping them C. F. U. minded. Anna Kretschmaier, Mgr. Pickers Pecking Along In Los Angeles Chase Los Angeles, Calif. The Woodpickers continued their winning streak in the L. A. Interlodge League by downing the Bowling Brps 3—1. A 4—0 win over the Ann's Dudes netted the Two & Ones a runnerup tic with the Sirens, who were on the short end of similar defeat at the hands of the Mis-Fits, an outfit that has ammassed ten points the past three weeks. Another team has reared its head lately, the Spirit of St. Louis, which but for a loss three weeks ago and that by four pins, has run off eleven straight points. Helen Grancich sprang back as sessional high holder with her 182—499 kegling on Feb ruary 12th. Mickey Roth was a repeater among the men with a 570 triple, the one game laurels going to George Kuri lich with 220. Other luminaries in the individual high class be ing Bob Radich, 561: Bob Roth, 546 Stanley Boras, 522, and Joe Grancich with the same caliber triple. The ladies had their own, Frances Andrews, 163—422 Lu cy Papac, 405 Gerry Grancich, 391: Ann Stanisich, 387, and Sonia Sincich with 353. High average honors among the men and women are divided as follows in the top three posi tions: Tom Guich, 178 Bob Radich, 175 Joe Simac, 171 Mary Roth, 153 Helen Gran cich, 147, and Lucy Papac, 142.

The William Ropa girls are getting to be a bettor risk with each session to cop the title in the Chicago La- 7 dies Bowling League. They tagged the Thank You Lounge Aces with a 3—0 loss on February 14th to give them selves a four game margin at a 44—22 record. The standout for the Insurances being Josephine Randich with 183—481 while Stephanie Bruchee 152—447 per formed the same chores for the losers. Pauline DePeder, 159—452, and Angeline Randich, 156—441, carried the brunt of the attack for the Thank You Lounge Deuces in their clean sweep over the last positioned Stach's Hot Spotters, the last game going on a mere three pins. The Dr. Barbaric Boosters took two from the & W Serv ice lassies, the winners, behind Marge Moderchan's sessional high of 190, pulling out the day's best one game team total in 737. Mayme Polich chucked in with a 452 triple for the Barbarics, whereas Elsie Crnich made it rough from the losers' side with such consistent bowling as 163 —460. The present outlook in team standings still present a strong three team first division with an expected upset from the other three to make exciting Sunday meets still in the offing. Stephanie Bruchee, Sec'y. TELL THE WORLD IT CAN'T BE BEAT Deuces Wild In Alcro Mixed Duckpin Circuit Aliquippa, Pa. The Druces in winning eight straight games which includes the February 13th session have pulled away to a six game lead in the A'cros Lodge 720 Bowling League. The second place Treys made a valiant but futile effort of even trying to keep step with them when the Quads decided that one game should go them at least. By coincidence 480 snared top triple honors both among the men and the women that eve ning, Matt Thomas the males and Ann Thomas among the fair sex keglers. The single game honors went to John Dan janic with 174 and Jo Prevish with 181. Other good scores being John Yatson, 167—479 John Dan janic, 463 Jo Prevish, 424, and Ann Yatson, 370. Josephine J.

Mahoning Valley Loop Clarions Benefit Fete Youngstown, Ohio A "Ben efit Dance" sponsored by the St. George Lodge 66 basketball team, which incidentally is in its second year, will be held at the Croatian Home's ball room, Sunday, February 28th. The lovers of the terpsichor ean art will have Joe Umeck and his Slovenes, without whom a dance of late at the Croatian Home is incomplete, to suit their fancy. Meanwhile the followers of Bacchus will find the shelves in the back room well stocked for rounds and varieties to meet their demands. The epicureans too will be well provided. The funfest will start taking shape at 8:30 P. M. and continue as long as you the individual patron will so decree. With this we may formally extend a cor dial welcome to one and all, young and old, to give a hand in what will help properly equip our young basketeers as the Youngstown entry to the CFU Basketball Tournament in Far rell, Pa. For the best showing possible of "Farrell or Bust", the roads first lead to the Croatian Home, 1012 West Federal Street in Youngstown, on Sunday, Febru ary 28th. i George A. Pribek, Scribe Aces Leading Card In Hamilton Circuit Deck Hamilton, Ont. Mary Her bolich tied Ann Kostrich for the seasonal one game honors by bowling a 316 high game in a 651 series at the February 10th meet. Not to be outdone Ann Kos trich continued her wicked mauling of the pins by blast ing a 753 triple, incidentally the best feminine three game figure thus far this year. Only last week Ann had a 291—717 splurge that would have done credit to anyone of us male members in the league. The sessional highs among the males showed two new faces in this respect. February 3rd it was Matt Rukavina with 270— 696 wrhile a week later it was Joe Myos with 285—656. At the present the league leading Aces with 78 points van quished another foe with a 0 lacing, the second straight thus victim having been their closest competitors at the time, the Red Devils. Dukes Remain Tops In Clairton Lodge Circuit Clairton, Pa. A glance at the February 11th standing of the Clairton Men's League shows Duquesne the most victorious if not the most popular with a 30—21 record. They have picked up five wins in the past two wreeks. Iron City stock has gone up the last three sessions and is within two games of the leaders. The other two squads, the Fort Pitts and the Tube City lads have just been around to fatten the win column of the top drawer teams but an upset ap pears about due soon. Three successive weeks have produced three different indi vidual high scores, first Martin Milas, 184—486, Henry Beka vac, 218—505, and William Kap sha at the February 11th meet with 205—497. Robert Aberasheff has figured among the three high triple in each of the three sessions, his best triple being a 469. Other high aggregates gave light to the following, Rudy Persich, 451 Frank Knezovich, 439 John Milas, 438 Joe Strinich and Mark Olujvic, 414. The best team total over the period was Duquesne's 747— 2074. February 24, Jets Prove Too Tough For Kenosha Loop Foss Kenosha, Wis. The Jet« have in the past four week« extended their lead in the Amity Lodge Bowling League to five and one half games. They have taken the measure of every loop opponent with the exception of the Pootv Parpers, currently the hottest team in the circuit. At the February 11th session they moved to within one half game of the runner-up Whipper Snappers, of late in a slump, by dealing them a 3—0 drub bing. Since leaving the cellar spot, now taken over by the Red Hots, the Pooty Parpers have even hammered out the best in team highs, 763 and 2165. The best male scores turned in over the past four week« came from Ed Baternik with 258—246—673. The next beat coming from Frank Toplovec, 531, and George Dezek, 200. He len Pflugrad with 499 and Anne Walsh with 189 headed the pit« rade of high individual feminine scores. Other high triples to catch the reporter's eye during the span herein covered were George Dezek, 500 Frank Widmanich, 498 Rudy Topolovec, 497 Geor ge Jambrek, 483 Frieda Odaj, 446, and Anne Damjanovic, 437. Deadlock In Lib Loop Broken By Giants Crew Pittsburgh, Pa. Lou Pit rich. 198—540, and Nick Fraft» kovich, 196—462, showed their heels to others at the January 30th meet of the Liberty Lodge 234 Bowling League. Emily Be cer with 377 and Mary Horva tich with 148 headed the femi nine members.
