The Fairfield Eagles coached by Tom Selstad won the title that year. Incidentally, new Mis sion Coach Milt Clawson still has three of the first five that went the state tournament that year Hilton, Sayler and Phillips. Seems to be some difference opinion as to whether Mission's tall rebound artist, Sayler, is eligible this season due to the new age ruling adopted by the board of con trol. "According to the records our files, he (Sayler), will not 19 until March 28" said Coach Claw son.

Experimental of this rule in more than 10,000 games last season indicates that the bonus penalty is severe enough to a deterrent against carelessness committing fouls. Officials may award a double free throw for any personal foul which is obviously in tentional. A jump nail now becomes alive when it is legally tapped and there little chance of running out the clock because of a defective toss or a violation such as tapping the ball too soon. The timer can de termine whether there is anything irregular about the toss. He starts the clock without signal from of ficial. The 55-56 rules have a revised de finition for a held ball. The revision applies to player control rather than team control. A dribbler for a certain team may most effective as a threat in the final seconds of a game but since the dribbler may have a held ball called after five seconds, not many coaches will build a "running out the clock" strategy around one drib bler. There will be few, if any oc casions for the 5-second count. Teams will probably depend on pass ing when they desire to keep contin uous team control. This will give the defensive team a slightly better chance to force play without the nec essity of committing a foul. The net result may be that teams will find advisable to continue to try to score instead of playing "keep away." Columbia Falls has a comparative ly 8 reen A squad.

MANIÛNS 3rd Ave. East and Railroad Kalispell School Hot Lunch Serves 407 Pupils U. The hot lunch program saw bus iness booming this week at Colum bia Falls school, with a record of 407 served at noon, Tuesday. Aver age number of students each day is 300. The students were served Tuesday in five shifts with all taken care of in little over an hour. This is a feat of smooth operating for the quarters for the lunch program are the rather small basement kitchen and dining room in the old dormi tory. The hot lunch program is a self supporting project with the federal government paying four cents for each meal served and the students purchasing lunch tickets at 25 cents. In addition the government aids by supplying surplus commodities at low cost, which is mainly processing and transportation. A deer and an elk are scheduled to be worked into the menu soon through thi« govern ment surplus food project. Also a factor, commented Supt. Du lane Fulton, is careful menu plan ning, marketing and utilization of food. The school buys in season, buys in large quantities and makes the most of staple products to function economically. Mrs. Everett Lewis is head cook, assisted by Mrs. Goldie Chapman, Mrs. Melba D allier and Mrs. Edward Lewis. Also helping are two high school students, Karen Ostby and Corliss Neilsen. Menus include a well balanced main course, bread and milk and generally fruit for dessert. Students may have all they can eat of the main course.
