Duckpin Tour nament of April 25-27, 1958, know, we had a very success ful tournament, socially and bowling-wise. There are also a few unravelled ends of the tournament that need atten tion. Mr. Paul Carrubba, man ager of the Pantonc Bros. Bowling Lanes, informs the tournament administration that his checking, after the din of our tournament had subsided, revealed that six (6) of his duckpin bowling balls were missing. Intentionally or inadver tently this loss of bowling balls to the Pantone Bowling Lanes does not speak well for the C.F.U. Duckpin Tourna ment. The likes of it has not hap pened before and we admon ish those who in exuberance, in disgust or in love with the balls that figured in their scores or in simple prank, may have necessitated this notice. Meanwhile, we for the good name of the Society and its Tournament stand obligated to make restitu tion to a fair degree to the alley establishment. If the return of the six balls is not made, no ques tions or explanation is neces sary, then the Duckpin Tour nament prize fund will bear the expense of this loss. ie .this at the expense of all the bowlers.
