Friday, September 25, 1942
Delores Julanio of 1-F North
way married Fred Frazier, U. S.
M. C., Wednesday evening, Sep
tember 23, at Bethesda. Mr. and
Mrs. Frazier will make their home
in Washington.
Announcement is made of the
engagement of Joan K'atherin Aya
to Paul Martin Dunbar, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Paul Dunbar of 13-D
Ridge Road. Miss Aya is the
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Al
phonse W. Aya of Medford, Oreg.
She is a graduate of Medford High
School and has attended Oregon
State College where she is affili
ated with Kappa Kappa Gamma
The date of the wedding is un
certain as Sergt. Dunbar, who is
stationed at the Medford municipal
airport with the Army Air Force,
expects to leave soon for the Signal
Corps Officers’ Training School at
Fort Monmouth, N. J.

Thomas F. McNamara, Jr., U. S.
N. R., is now stationed in Mel
bourne, Fla.—Leonard Sussholz,
rental agent at the local adrnini
tration office, left today to begin
training for the U. S. Army Air
Corps in Nashville, Tenn.
Upon his return to camp, after
a furlough in Greenbelt, Pvt. Roy
Bell, Jr., was made a corporal. On
Monday of this week he was picked
to be one of a very small number
of men out of the entire division
to become a corporal in the Com
mandos. This is perhaps the most
dangerous branch of the entire -
Army setup and the fact that
Greenbelt’s champ horseshoe pit
cher was picked speaks exceeding
ly well of him. Roy’s uncanny
knowledge of woods and terain
and the fact that he was chief
scout for his company for several
months were no doubt deciding
factors in his being chosen. His
many friends in Greenbelt wish
him none but the best of luck and
hope that he will do the same as
he did in his many horseshoe and
bowling tournaments, that is, be
on top.

One Year Ago
(From the Cooperator of
September 26, 1941)
The District government granted
a charter of incorporation to the
“Cooperator,” the first px-oducers’
cooperative newspaper in the
United States. —The largest fire in
Greenbelt’s history, in a 20-foot
deep ravine filled with rubbish,
was extinguished by the Green
belt, Berwyn Heights, Branchville
and College Park fire departments.
—The Town Council exonerated
Dr. Silagy of any blame in the
poliomyelitis situation. Mrs.
Dwaine Walther was elected presi
dent of the Greenbelt Nursery
School. Josephine Maguire re
signed as hospital auxiliary presi
dent; Betsy Woodman elected as
new head. Curtiss F. Barker,
Frank J. Lastner, Thomas B.
Ricker and George F. Bauer were
elected as Town Councilmen in ad
dition to Allen D. Morrison. —The
Literary Club, fostered by Mrs.
Reba Harris, replaced the former
Book Club. Greenbelt’s police
horses were sold.
Ann Martone Is ■
Victorious Over
Lncy Sherertz
Mrs. Ann Martone successfully
defended her singles title by turn
ing back a most worthy challenger,
Mrs. Lucy Sherertz, in three stirr
ing sets by scores of 0-6, 6-4 and
In matches leading up to the
finals Ann Martone beat Margaret
Plackett and Lois Bowman. In the
challenge bracket Lucy Sherertz
defeated Jean Burton and Marion
Mrs. Sherertz played inspired
tennis all the way through the
first set with the champion and
held the whip hand. Her game
was steady and quite forceful at
times, while Mrs. Martone seemed
at a loss and never got in good
At the start of the second set
Ann got on the beam and took a
three game lead. Lucy recovered
and quickly evened the count. The
next two games followed service
and the ladies were tied at 4 all.
On her fifth serving chance
Ann came through with a love
game and then held on Lucy’s
serve to win 6-4.
The deciding set was dismal for
the challenger. Mrs. Sherertz
made a great try to rally in the
early games of the last set but
Mrs. Martone was playing too
fine to be overtaken. Ann forced
the play and scored many place
ments in closing out by 6 to 1.
Jean Burton and Paul Hennes
sey defeated Margaret and Art
Plackett, 8 to 6 and 6 to 4 and
attained the final round in the
mixed doubles against Lucy and
Wallace Sherertz.
The Placketts were very much
in the struggle but were nipped
at the finish of both their sets
with the Burton-Hennessey com
The Volunteer
(An old Greenbelt resident who
has just enlisted in the Volun
teer Officers’ Training School.)
I am but one of men to come,
And those already gone,
To face the odds and chance of
And freely be their pawn.
At my behest I face the test
Of ideological war;
I’ll have no rest ’til we are best,
And Fascism is no more.
This frame of mind is not all
But rises from conviction;
I have a wife to check my strife,
But this were dereliction.
The sentient soul will have its toll
At thought of bloody battle;
Civilians die, you hear their cry:
“They slaughter us like cattle!”
The full impact of forceful fact
Not yet impressed upon, us;
That war is Hell and sounds the
Of apathetic chorus.
Aggression’s yoke is not a joke,
As fallen countries know;
It’s up to us, not just to fuss,
But land that knockout blow.
So let’s get smart and do our part
To vanquish freedom’s foe;
Let’s all put out and save the
Results will surely show.
Whatever line they may assign,
Be it firing or production,
Give all you’ve got, it means a lot.
We’ll win with this construction.
Shamrocks at Shady Oak

Bill Blanchard, the Recreation
Department tennis tourney cham
pion, was also the Reps’ ace soft
ball swatter. The nimble-footed
husky whacked out a fancy .456
for the season. A very warm set
of figures.
The Greenbelt Packers, junior
football squad, have had several
scrimmages to date and look pretty
good. Last week’s heat and high
humidity was tough on the little
pig-skinners, what with all the
heavy armor they wore.
The Shamrocks were jolted out
cf any chance they had to finish
in the runner-up slot in the county
standings when they handed Blair
Hamel’s boys a 10-inning gift last
Looking ahead to the two re
maining games there is a chance
to finish in third place. Both these
games will have to be won. Joe
Ciomei will be present, and in the
outfield with him will be Archie
Via. Curt Barker’s departure
made room to sign the slugging
Via, who played in the Industrial
League in Washington.
. The more we see of this fellow
'Flynn the more we realize that
Riverdale has the best pitcher in
the league. The genial Doctor al
ways has that “something extra”
to dish up when he gets behind
too far.
A couple audacious Shamrocks
dared challenge Catcher “Knocky”
Thomas’ throwing arm and
brought nothing but chagrin upon
Julie Andrus used his head to
finally break into the hit column.
The fleet little sailor dumped a
slow roller down the first base line
and was hit on the back of his
head with the ball Flynn attempt
ed to fling for the out. Using the
old bean!
Jim Breed’s control was hot and
cold all afternoon. The big Lone
Star starter had the entire River
dale team ducking, and cussing
Farmer even made as if to clout
Jim one on the “beezer.”
Gerry Geyer continues to draw
“Ohs” and “Ahs” from the fans
with his delightful fielding be
havior. He also nicked Dr. Flynn
for a single, double and triple and
drove in our side’s only tally.
Riverdale had three stolen bases
early in the game, but after Joey
Todd nailed the swift Thomas by
a good 10 feet on his second try,
none of the Hamelmen ventured
far off the bases.
Johnny Picco hit a ball that al
most won the game for the home
folks in the ninth inning. It was
a wicked drive to center field, so
hard hit that Breed thought it
was “gone" and ambled too far
from tJiird to score after the catch.
A1 Bowman has done a splendid
job of umpiring the Shamrocks’
non-league games this summer.
Not in any game has he been called
a “homer” and he never let any
player get “out of hand.”
As Mr. Bowman has had occa
sion to say, “Strike three!" “Naff

Nips Shamrocks
3-1 in Overtime
Last Sunday Stanleigh Inn paid
a little visit to Braden Field and
romped off with a 3 to 1, ten
inning verdict to add to their un
beaten second half string.
Jim Breed’s wildness was the
direct cause of his downfall. He
hit three batsmen and had quite
a number of “near misses.” He
gave up six bases on balls as
against five strike-outs.
Flynn Tough in Pinche
The Shamrocks, led by Jerry
Geyer, Ernie Boggs and Breed,
outhit the first half champions by
10 to 6 but tight-spot hurling by
Johnny Flynn and unmasterful
base-running squashed every
Greenbelt bid to win.
Geyer had a triple and double
for the locals and Cohill hit a
double for the winners. Both sides
had 13 men left on bases.
