'N -1: UU THE PLQHIUE HELUS - The Strawn grade softball season was a one-sided affair due to the diminuitive size of the Bluebird players. To start the sea- son the Thawville Titans came to the home diamond September 9 and smothered the Strawn half-pints 27 to 8. On September 16 the Chatsworth giants overpowered them by the very decisive score of 23 to 12. The third venture against over-size opponents was at Thawville on September 23 The first two innings found thelocals ahead but some errors in the field and weak batting left them be- hind at the end A desperate rally and a three bagger by Butch Kuntz almost knotted the score Thawville then staged another attack and the game ended 21 to 7 for them. On September 27, the Bluebirds found themselves well matched as far as size was con eerned against the Chatsworth fifth and sixth graders This on they brought home by a score of 17 to 3 Three days later they squared away against the Sibley Giants For an inning things looked good but the Strawn midgets get faint hearted again and they were snowed under 21 to 15 On October 5 the Bluebirds crossed bats with the huge Cropsey team and met defeat again, 19 to 9 Cropsey repeated again October 8 on the Strawn diamond by another lop sided victory of 19 to 12 Thus another season ended with six losses and one victory DDU THE BQSKUBQLL EUURT On the basketball floor the grade boys compiled a muchbetter record, ending the season with lO victories and 9 defeats Coach Hagerman's guidance paid dividends and it became increasingly evident as the season progressed that these lightweights were g ing to make good Outstanding among the players was Glen Davis, high scorer and capable leader of the team, whose 203 points and fine defen S1VB work were an inspiration to the whole team Another player who made good in spite of small size was Lowell Lattig who scored 115 points for second scoring honors The other regulars were Billy Skinner, Bob Rinkenberger and Richard Deany They were very ably assisted by Kenneth and George Kuntz John Hornickle, William and Bengamin Metz Ronald Steidinger, Tommy Aaron Donald Metz Kent Lattig, and Maurice Koehl If the boys were asked to pick out a single game as the most ex citing and thrilling of the season, there is little doubt that they would be agreed that the return game wlth Chatsworth answered that description A final score of 26 to 25 tells the story of a nip and tuck game In all these games the three expertcheen- leaders Joan Marlin, Mary Walters, and Carol Elliott di an inspired Job of working up enthusiasm and deserve the oommendation of players, classmates and spectators . . a . . l . . - U . - . . . .
