W. Leave 7 a. m., return 5 p. m. Lillie Schaeffer, 19-M, Ridge Road. To 17th and Constitution ave., 8:00 a. m. to 4:30 p. m., 6 days a week. Call at Republic 7400, Ext. 4882. Mr. Lightner. Handball Doubles In Shakey Start; 3 Games Well Played The hand ball doubles run-off scheduled to begin last Sunday struck somewhat of a snag when only three matches of an eight match list were played. Confusion caused by the fact that some players did not know their partners and the arrival on scene of at least ten new players wanting to play and who were not paired up. All this mix-up will be ironed cut if players concerned will call up either Mr. Ben Goldfaden or Mr. Dave Goffen. Failing to do so will cause matches to be forfeited when they could be just as easily played. Of the contests played, the one in which the Tretter-Grable com bination downed Tivin and Terkel taub, was the closest and hardest fought. The scores were 15-14 and 15-14. Weinerman and Fleisher beat Goffen and Loeb in a hardly less exciting match by 15-14 and 15-7. Luboff and Trattler trimmed Eisner and Machiz handily, by 15-10 and 15-7 scores. Champs Honor Wives At Victory Party The Prince Georges County soft ball champions will celebrate their victory at a little party for all players and their wives at the Athletic clubhouse tonight at 8:30 p. m. Ben Goldfaden, the manager, cordially invites the long suffering wives to the party and hopes, to partially repay them for their in dulgences by giving them a good time tonight. A good friend of the team, Roy S. Braden, will be on hand to pre sent the beautiful trophy, emble matic of the “hard work rewarding success” the Reps achieved. Captain Bates Wins Rod and Gun Tournament Captaih (Harry Bates, command ing officer' of the local Minute Men, won the fourth annual tour nament of the Navy Yard Rod and Gun Club held August 17 and 26. Capt. Bates, ex-president of the organization, scored 94 out of a possible 100 points. The trophy was presented Wednesday night and if Captain Bates wins the next two tournaments it will be his permanently. Capt. Bates has been an active leader of The Greenbelt Gun Club. Cooperator Staff Loses Its Assistant Editor The Cooperator staff this week is without an assistant editor and its top copy desk-man, for Ed and Sally Meredith have left Green belt suddenly in order to take ad vantage of a new job which will replace the government position which Mr. Meredith has had until the present. Mrs. Meredith had been serving as an assistant editor for more than a year, first under Frank Fosnight, and more recently with Donald H. Cooper. She was also secretary of the Greenbelt Coop erative Publishing Association, the parent organization of the weekly newspaper. A special meeting of the Asso ciation will be called in the near future to fill the vacancy she leaves. In the meantime Editor Cooper is calling attention to the need for new staff members to re place the two Merediths. Appli cants should come to the Cooper ator office in room 202 over the drug store Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday evening between 8 and 10 o’clock. ************************* TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTVTTVTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTI -16.

Cliff Pierce and Bob Porter blasted their way to the top of the doubles heap when they beat down Leroy Clark and Paul Hennessey 6-1, 1-6 and 6-3, last Sujiday morning. The losing tandem gained the final round earlier that same morn ing by whipping Joe Sheriff and Bill Moore in straight sets by 6-3 and 6-4 scores. Lucy Shererty reached the final round in both women’s singles and mixed doubles. She trimmed Mar ion Moore 6-1 and 6-3, and will meet Ann Martone Sunday for the crown battle. Lucy and Wallace Sherertz played steadily to over come Bill Blanchard and Lois Bow man 6 2, 4-6, and 8-6 to await the lower-bracket finalist team. Matches in the lower-bracket of the mixed doubles involve Art and Margaret Placket vs. Ann Martone and Leroy Clark, with the winner to play Paul Hennessey and Jean Bui ton for the rigut to meet the Sherertzs in the title match. Two New Champs Win Archery Tournament The archery tournament, held under the sponsorship of the Rec reation Department, was run off last week in highly satisfying man ner. The boys drew bows daily and the girls fired their rounds on three days. Leonard Lemire won King Rob in Hood’s crown and Mahlon Esh baugh had to be content with Little John’s mantle. The tw o youngsters ran nip and tuck throughout the tourney, and at the end, Leonard accumulated 1,870 points to 1,820 points for Mahlon. Frank Bauer placed third with 1,400 points. In the Annie Oakley section Miss Patty Bell far out-distanced the field. It must be said that Patty had the experience of last year’s shooting to help her along, and that the other girls showed much promise for the future. Miss Bell eyed out a total of 774 points for her title. Second place was very closely contested, with Virginia Gomo edging Helen Ward by eievem points, 356 to 345. How the Reps “Figured” To Win in the County Title With a very successful season at its finish and the Prince Georges Softball Trophy already in the bag, it makes interesting Hot Stove League fuel to scan the records and see what made the Reps tick.

Help along these ‘ lines will be gratefully appreci ated. Any tips you may have can be turned in to the Cooperator office or to the Recreation Depart ment. Curt Barker has been Known for four years as a darn go- ,u softball pitcher, as well as a fine fellow. The town’s baseball nine was struggling along some weeks with just nine and it was suggested that Curt try his hand at the par ent game. He did. His aggressiveness at bat and the ease with which he has filled in at many positions has endeared him to the players and fans alike. Now we are going to lose this splendid chap to Uncle Sam’s Navy. Curt will receive a commis sion as Ensign early next week. The Greenbelt High basketball team members of last season will split up in various directions. Billy Dodson goes to Franklyn-Marshall Prep, Johnny Bozek slides over to Maryland U., “Bee” Sommers jour neys down to Bridgewater College, ter at High Point U. are Leroy Clark, Lynn Buck and Blake Palm er. Lynn and Leroy will be room mates. It is noted that Pete Labukas, Johnny Pico’s chum and lake at tendant, rates the call over tivo other candidates as first-string quarterback on coach Johnny Bak er’s George Washington U. foot ball squad, .... also that George Keat, guard at the swimming pool this summer, is trying to win the job as Clark Shaughnessey’s Maryland quarter back. A bunch of local lads are toy ing with the idea of having a jun ior football team in the town this Fall. They have already had two meetings and have bought them selves quite a bit of equipment. Name for the team has not been chosen as yet, but the boys lean toward Greenbelt Packers. Has a powerful sound, at that! Danny Jones, Joe Lewis, Dickie Palmer, Jim Scordellis, Bob Somrr.ers, Joe Cashman, Mahlon Eshbaugh and Donnie Wolfe are a few of the go-getters. Ora Donaghue made her debut •in Greenbelt tennis in the tour namet.t now being run off. She and her coach-partner, Ben Goldfaden were eliminated in the first round of mixed doubles play, but Ben predicts great things for her in the future. Well, it’s strike three, so that’s all. Girl Scouts Start Fall Mrs. Martin A. Miller, leader of Girl Scout Troop 15, announces that the troop’s first meeting this fall will be held at the Elemen tary School on Tuesday, Septem ber 15. Mrs. Miller invites any girl be tween the ages of 10 and 14 to come to the meeting at 3:30 p. m. in the Social room. ||j|| PORTRAITS HAVE THEM MADE BY JleMUf. GREENBELT’S OWN PHOTOGRAPHER Specialist in Children s Portraiture Sittings Made In Your Own Home By Appointment Only LEROY E. SMITH 6-A Ridge Road Greenbelt 4036 PAGE THREE Shamrocks Lose To Police Nine 7-2; Play Badly Hyattsville, September 6—The Shamrocks have lost another ball game. The revamped Police Boys’ Clubbers hung the latest kayo on Greenbelt’s chin in nine rounds to a 7 to 2 decision. The three-leaf Shamrocks would like to branch out and become four leaf Clovers, for the balance of the season, and regain some meas ure of Lady Luck’s sweetness. New Shamrocks Steps In. The nicest thing in the ball game, from Greenbelt’s viewpoint, was the debut in left field of little Joe Ciomei in the fifth frame. He made two stellar catches, one in the sixth and one in the seventh, both after hard runs. In the seventh period he tried to put the Rocks ' back in the game with a blistering hit into left field only to see a pros pective run die at the plate. George Mosedale and Ernie Boggs were the opposing pitch ers, and Boggs’ mates took all the fun out of it for him in the very first inning, when four Hyattsville runs clattered across the plate unearned. Boggs Hits Well. Boggs also swung the biggest Shamrock bat, donating three bin gles to a very non-productive thir teen hit asault on Mosedale. Most Greenbelt batting was done after two were out, as the thirteen men left on bases will attest. Armstrong-Roney will invade Braden Field next Sunday for a double-header. The Largo lads have been in the doldrums and the pair of games will be a battle to see who holds the rest of the League on its shoulders.
