OUR NEIGHBORS This fall weather has done things to some our ambition resi dents. Mike Salgman, Carl T. Meuse, Donald F. Leo and Max Sones: In keeping up with the pro gram of conserving gas and tires these few “sturdy” citizens who work in Beltsville are chopping a path through the woods to the farm. For the past four weeks every Saturday morning has found them hard at work, and the job is now virtually complete. The path will be a direct approach to the farm as compared to the circuit ous route traveled by auto, and the “sturdy” members figure they will be able to walk this distance in about 46 minutes. That’s the stuff, boys! Keep ’em walking! * * * Mrs. Roy S. Braden is enjoying a vacation at the beautiful French Lick Springs, Ind., where she will attend the International City Man agers’ Convention this week with Mr. Braden. They expect to be away several weeks. Miss Patricia O’Brien of 50-F Crescent Road left Sunday for a two-day visit with her parents in lowa before leaving for Fair banks, Alaska. Miss O’Brien and nine other girls who are employed by the Army Air Forces have been transferred to Alaska. They will make the trip by plane from Se attle, Washington. Miss Mary Jane McCarl spent last week end at Annapolis. As the guest of Robert Bonham, she attended the Cotillion at St. John’s A surprise baby shower was given to Mrs. Elizabeth Cook last Friday evening by some friends at the home of Mrs. Mary Scott of 4-G Southway. Mr. and Mrs. C. Edwin C. Welsh announce the engagement of their daughter, Margaret Louise, to Staff Sgt. James Horten Perdue of Danville, Va. The wedding date is expected to be November 11. Sergt. Perdue is stationed at Ft. Meade, Md. Mrs. Irene Barton of Los An feles is visiting her sister, Mrs. . W. Schulteis, 38-D Crescent Road. I s I £syCk lAtkUtlkUt# it <wik .... With a bottle of NATIONAL PREMIUM • Being unable to supply the country’s demand for NATIONAL PREMIUM is no new thing with us. We’ve been unable to keep up with demand for our beer every ! summer for years. Like the fine vintage from some small, restricted vineyard, there’s never an unlimited supply. E Right now, we’re a little shorter than usual— i but still, there’s enough to take care of the critic who knows how to stretch a bottle. Drink it for QUALITY, GOODNESS and FLAVOR. Don’t gulp—sip it slowly and carefully. There is no beer like National Premium. Some is to be had from coast to coast. BREWED & BOTTLED BY THE NATIONAL BREWING CO.

Monday thru Saturday. Fads and Fignres On Greenie Flingers The Shamrocks are all through with baseball for a while. They didn’t have a particularly brilliant season all told, but were doing famously when they struck a slump that was too great to pull out of. The pitchers’ records are in teresting. Both Jim Breed and Ernie Boggs had won 6 games be fore either of them dropped one. Ernie’s loss started him on a similar streak in the wrong direction while Jim lost four of his last five. The big Texan hurled 4 white wash satisfiers, Vince Holochwost and Boggs one each, while Johnny Picco and Pete Lubukas collabor ated in dishing out the horse collars in the seventh Shamrock blanking party.

Association Plans Hallowe'en Dance A Halloween Dance, sponsored by the Greenbelt Citizens Associa tion, is being planned for Satur day, October 31 at the Elementary School Auditorium with Johny Sinclair and his nine-piece band putting out the “hot licks”. According to Stanley Ostler, president of the Association, the ways and means committee intend to make this one of the big neter tainment occasions of the year for Greenbelt. The dance will start at 10 p. m. and will continue through the “witching hour” to 1 a. m. Tickets are being printed now and will be distributed to key men shortly for sale at 50 cents per person. GREENBELT COOPERATOR Elementary School Touch Football Off a Good Start Wayne Davis, the county league's favorite pivot man, was presented a daughter by his wife last week at a Laurel hospital. Baby Sandra Lynn takes her place on the Shamrocketts along along with Sharon Elizabeth Breed, Susan Gay Boggs and Toni Marie Todd, this Summer’s wel come additions to three other Shamrock families. Jerry Geyer who was honored, on the All-Star team along with Davis, teamed up with the key stone master to give the Shamrocks a double play threat for the first time . It is extremely doubtful if as many as six twin-killings were registered in the two seasons before the Geyer-Davis era. This year double-death was dosed out to the enemy 23 times. There were a couple of happy lads in the baseball line-up last Sunday at Shady Oak, 15-year-old Donnie Wolfe and 30-year-old Vince Holochwost. Donnie had to peel out of his football togs for his big chance. “Holly” thought he had hung up his spikes for the duration and was elated at the opportunity to play his favorite sport. Ernie Boggs made it! He is the nearest thing the Shamrocks have to rival the late Lou Gehrig’s iron man record. The blonde pitcher, utility man has played in every game the locals have had!

Draftee Frank starred on the '4O Shamrocks and the '4O-’4l basketball Reps. The slugging Russo once hit two home runs in a single game. Hurry back, boy! If any of you men, new to Greenbelt, have gone this far with us, we are now appealing to those of you who can play baseball to be thinking about next year. The Elementary School Touch Football League started Monday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. The six teams entered in the league this year are captained by Harry Bene fiel, Robert Scott, Rene Ward, Franklin Sipes, Leo Slaughter and Jack Waldo. Each team has 11 players on its roster, but only seven members are allowed to play at any one time. The recreation department is de termining the winners by a little different method than in the past. The winners will be scored on a point system. For the winning of the game a team will earn 40 points, for displaying good sports manship a team will also earn 40 points. Ten points will be given to each term if it has a complete roster of IT players, if one player is missing one point will be de ducted, if two are missing two points will be deducted and so on. ' Ten points will also be given to ' each team if it is ready to start the game on the scheduled time ; which is 3:30 p.m. All games ! will be played on Monday, Wednes ! day and Friday afternoons. In the first game, played Mon day, October 12, Harry Benefiel’s 1 team defeated Robert Scott’s team ( by the score of 33-6.

PAGE THREE Aces Put Locals Into sth Place As Season Ends Shady Oak, October 11 —The curtain was lowered on the Prince Georges County League Baseball season as the Maryland Aces sur vived a late Shamrock rally and handed Jim Breed his fourth set back. The 7 to 5 loss shoved the Locals back into fifth place in the standings. Breed Off * Breed’s wildness caused him much discomfiture, but he could have sued some of his mates for non-support aa the game was handed away with the Aces’ last 8 runs being unearned. Both teams were shorthanded and agreed to allow each other the privilege of using: ineligible players. Greenbelt had to call on its former manager and present Naval Lieutenant, Vince Holoch wost and its erstwhile mascot and current Packer footballer, Donnie ■Wolfe to round out a nine. A Young Wolf(e) Howl* The 15 year old Wolfe was far from being frightened at Warren Earhardt’s variety of hot stuff and collected a walk and a crisp single in his maiden effort at “grown ups” baseball. He showed no jitters in the field as he camp ed under two long fly balls from Maurice Purdy’s bat. Ben Goldfaden played his best game at third, making several stops of the red-hot variety and displayed a wonderfully improved throwing arm. Robbery Purdy, Ace first-sacker, who hit in hard luck all afternoon, was further aggravated in the sixth inning when Vince Holochwost stabbed his scorcher and won the race to the bag. Joe Todd was among the miss ing and the rookie catcher, Bill Moore, proved he was definitely a better sports writer or first baseman or something. Texas Jim Breed was the game’s outstanding hitter with three safeties and as many runs batted in. This trio of bingles carried the big flinger over the .300 mark in the stick averages for the first time this season.
