SPORTS By JACK UALLEN .. *° nP f j! e h<*sl basketball banners waving over the district cage layout ! S u° f , ( '‘* lan ‘‘ s, • l'l- There are many tepid teams in this section, both scholastically and independently, but it’s doubtful If there’s anv quintet' hereabouts that sports a better record than that of the I'nionites. And the re markable part of it all is that the Local is home-grown and home-fed. Silk* didn’t start out any too well. They dropped a couple of rln*he* right off the reel hut In the last several week* they have been hitting the high spot*, hns kethallirally speaking, and hitting them in away that ha* all local cagedom sitting up and taking not*. Recently they jumped on the point getting bangwngon and scored more than ino marker* against the Oakland. Md. Inde pendent*. Which. I* a lot of scor ing in any chap’s league, even if you’re not playing anvhodv. "V" GAME SATURDAY I.ike a lot of other aggrega tion* in this neck of the woods. ■ the 1... cal IST4 plays most ofH ft* games on thcfll Central Y. M. A court andkflk with the • Y tottering on "'Hfe, k&JIk brink of finan- rial disaster the Union-clothed coterie will stage a ■'Save the *Y'" jamboree Saturday night on the 'Y' court To coach Frank Crisco goes the credit for this idea It was he who proposed It at a recent con. lave of the Loral and with Manager •’Red ' Chaney he’s arranging to distribute ln.non “Dim* Game" tickets among the fans and fan cite* of Cumberland and envir on*. The stipulated number far surpasses the seating caparitv of the Y M. C A emporium hut the Celanese chieftains expect to sell many pasteboards to Individuals willing to contribute, on their own hook, to the "Save the Y" cam paign TALI. TEAM The Celanese laical is an in teresting basketball battalion. Of courae, the team possesses • lot of ahilit). Its record is Indicative of that. Rut the “eolor" of the ensemble goes beyond ability. Take the height of the hoys for *\am pla. They average over six feet. In dividually They have two classy center* In Charles ‘Snap’ Morris* I and Francis Chapman. Morris* long ha* been and still Is one of the most talented hardwood hoops ter* in this section while Chapman, just a rub hut a good one in the independent racket, was one of the classiest cagers ever turned 4 out by Sammy was slated for a regular berth on the Notre Dame Univer sity squad last season until a trick knee forced him out of ac tion. Now. however, the trick knee Is no longer tricky and Chapman. ASK I for A THE ORIGINAL /^%M I Quc^tiyu^ I The Queen City Brewing Co. Mf CI MBKRLAND, MI). ■ WKKBKKL mmmd 1 i • employed at the Celanese plant, i i* giving his merits to the Silk- 1 men instead of the Irish. Besides Morriss and Chapman : the Silks ran show, among others. ' the Orndorff brothers and 'Chick'l : Snider, all former Fort Hill pass -1 ers. It is this trio that supplies ■the speed. And speed goes a long 1 way in basketball. In spite of the Silks ability and color, however, there's a little fly ( in the ointment in that the team has not been drawing ns well ns it should. It's a downright shame that teams of the ability of laical ! 1*74 should play to only a hand-! ful of fans but that exactly has been the situation to date. Other cities, the size of Cum- 1 berland. would probably turn out a thousand or more strong for) each hig game if they had an ar ray like the Celanese but for 1 some reason or other local h. h bugs just can't seem to get en- thused over the cage situation, nir. 801 T FRIDAV Roving hits the headline* again Friday night when garrulous (mis l.esne\ich for sakes the light-heavyweight class for a crack at hohhing Rob I'astor in Madison Square Garden. To the winner, mumbles Mike .lacohs, goes a fling at Joe Louis hut the least said about that the better for Louis will dispose of both of 'em on the same night, If he wishes to. i 1 Lesnevich will weigh in around I*2 pounds which, while not heavy ' as fighters go. is a lot of beef for 1 a chap like Otis who's been used 1 to swinging fists at around ITS I pounds. It should be a good hout. ,' I,*sn*vlrh is tough and rugged 1 and pastor, while no killer, is a 1 fancy hoxer and a hard man to whip. I While on the subject of boxing I see where referee Rill Donovan ’ had more trouble recently in the I Zivic-Robinson bout. 7,ivic claim- ‘ ed that Donovan stopped the fight * too soon and various and sundry.' sport writers seemed to agree 1 with the Pittsburgh puncher. Not r that Zivie would have won had, the bout went the full 12 round*. Far from it. The Sugar had the j Pittsburgher outclassed as far as that goes but had Donovan, ac-j cording to the scribes, used prop- i er judgment the Smoky City clout- ; cr might have gone the limit. CAMII.LI TO (ft IT One baseball player who doesn't like baseball is Dolph Camilli,; Brooklyn's gifted first baseman and winner of the National league's 1941 most valuable play et award. In fact. Camilli in*i*ta that thi* | THE WESTERN MARYLAND VOICE OF INDUSTRIAL LABOR ; will be his last season. The reason? He like* ranch life and he'* mak -1 ing plenty of money, so they say, out of hi* 1700-acre layout in i Northern California. And to top i that off hi* wife doesn't want him to play baseball. But while Cam doesn't like baseball he *ure like* the dough. : He's capitalizing on hi* “Most I Valuable Player" award to de , tnand $29,000 of the Brooklyn Dodgers this year. Seems to me., maybe I'm wrong, that a lot of people are thinking too much In j terms of money and not enough In term* of security these day* How fortunate Camilli I*, regard- ! less of his ability to even ask for ! *25.000 Wonder what Adolf Hit- j ler and sneaky Hirohito would say ; to *uch demands if they were ever j in control of thi* country, TOAST TO BOWERS Getting to he a habit ia a toast j I to Bill Bower*. Allegany High's I silent hut smart basketball coach | Seem* like my old friend Bill an [ nually starts out slow and then, like a holt from the blut. give* ■ the hoy* the works. Didn't he do it last year? He did. Looks like he might do It again this year. Allegany didn't start out o well during the cur rent season but lately they have been clipping all comers They knocked off Central right In Mel Henry's own backyard and what they did to Bruce High waa not only a sin but also a shame. Right now LaSalle lead* the city chase. The Blue and Gold meets Allegany on February ftth in SR. Peter * Paul hall and if Alle gany's showing of the past few weeks is any criterion of what happen* then LaSalle Is in for a tough night. I ROES REVAMPING WASHINGTON.
