KENNEWICK (WASH .) COURIER-REPORTER
Sportsweek . . .
4 ‘ By ROLFE TUVE 1
Somebody crossed me up and;
I think it was the Boston Braves.
You’ll remember that last week I
commented on the age old and
probably erroneous tradition a
bout the team that is ahead on the
Fourth of July is practically a
cinch to win the pennant in late
September. The article was writ
ten a few days before the Fourth
in the assumption that the fight
ing Boston Indians would cling
to their narrow margin.
But the Brooklyn Dodgers must
have read the Courier-Reporter
last week. By virtue of a shel
lacking of the Giants the Dodgers
slipped into first place for the
one fateful day while the Braves
took one on the chin. Anyway,
the Dodgers slipped into first
place for one important day and
drapped a game on the fifth while
the Braves won to regain the top
spot. Whereupon they slipped a
gain on the sixth to move back
into second place.
I’m getting very tired of the
Braves; I have tried to be a
faithful and considerate fan. But
if they can’t make up their mind
pretty soon, I’m going to throw
them over like a double-crossing
blonde. I am going to start hoping
that I will lose the two bits I
have bet on them.
' t a: e '
1 Getting back to the local scene
. I find little to talk about in the
lpicture except the softball league.
'I. am happy to report that my
colleague, the Sidewalk-Reporter,
got a step ahead of me. The softp
ball gal‘nes are now complete with
sound effectsttA loudspeaker sys-'
tem has been provided which adds
much to the enjoyment of the
'game. Congratulations to the' lea-z
gue sponsors for this addition to
the already fine setup. , 3
I am also happy to note that:
lat least one catcher has taken
.my advice seriously. I watchg a
'game Tuesday night in w 'chl
the maskman religiously followed
the advice of throwing the ball
back to the pitcher after a strike
.and to an infielder after a ball.

Flying: A question has been
raised _as to whether flying ‘ proa‘
perly comes under.the heading of
sports. Certainly flying is rapidly
becoming a commercial enterprise
of practical worth. However, I
'still believe that the fellow who
complete: his course and takes
the crate aloft for the first time
alone still considers it to be a
sport of thrillstand. entertainment.
The Sport in flying in recent
.years has been developed for the
ordinary flyer in ways in which
lhe can participate without being
‘a stunter or daredevil. Most pop
lular are the breakfast flights.
.These are mass cross country
lflights to a given destination where
the group partakes of a healthy
breakfast. Hosts at these various
occasions are contesting to see who
can put on the. finsiwt feed.
Swimming: The need for a}
swimming pool in Kennewick is
pointed out by the use of some
backyard pools made of surplus
rubber water tanks. There is one
in my neighborhood which is con
stantly filled with squealing hap
py kids. Water is less than three
feet deep, yet it affords the young
er group an opportunity to splash
and to overcome any fear of water.
As a matter of fact they can act
ually swim several strokes in‘
crossing the small pool.
Huge Mode[ Congest

Of interest to Kennewick mod-1
