SUMMARY As the time for the Burr rolls around we will divulge a few facts about the Noon Leagues. First let us take the baseball setup in League I. Arnold Beck and team smashed every team in sight and won with a perfect record. A few of the star play- ers are: Beck, himself, whose homeruns did no end of good, then there was Bob Carson, whose pitching was terrific, and the whole team really was good. In basketball it was a nip and tuck race for the championship with Shaver ■winning after two playoffs. The season was even Steven straight through. When the regular season came to an end there was a tie, so a playoff ensued in which there was a 7-7 tie. In the second playoff in which Shaver from start to finish was winning 16-12. In League II baseball there was a close race in which Andy Smith ' s team won out after having a record of 6-1-1. In the play- off with Beck they lost 18-0. In League II basketball the champs were Red Alper ' s team with a record of 7-0. In the playoffs they lost to older boys 28-1 1 but they played good ball. In the lower Leagues there were all close races. In League IV, A. Stubb ' s team won. In basketball, Calhoun ' s team won in his League. In 4B the lowest of Leagues, the boys participated in the good old J. B. style. The winner in baseball was Don Thompson. In basketball, Sid Krupnick ' s team walked off with the honors. Other sports also have flourished. The Bib Track Meet was a big success for the H. A. S. and Boys ' Council. Handball had another successful season with over one hundred boys entering the handball tournament. Handball, though not a major sport, is very popular. CENTER JUMP s.e- PAGE SIXTY-ONE

ATHLETICS TODAY BUILD SUCCESS FOR TOMORROW By FRANK BULL To young America, athletics are fun; they are sheer enjoyment of playing phys- ical games which allow you to feel your own strength and show what that strength can accomplish. But more than that, in athletics you are building for yourselves some things which are vitally important to your future. Vigorous, healthy bodies. Clean living and thinking. Coordination. Morale. Foundation for fair competition. In ordinary times, all of these are neces- sary in the development of youth into man- hood. But during times like those of the present, the importance of athletics in the life of every young American increasingly becomes apparent and necessary. A strong body means health and dur- ability. Clean living keeps youth and man alike occupied with constructive objectives. Morale is something we all need in fac- ing the disappointments and tribulations which life brings. The spirit of fair competition, the ability to give and take without flinching will lead a man to success in any field of endeavor he chooses to follow. So, while you are enjoying sports for the sheer fun they give you, realize that they are giving you more than you can derive from any other recreation. Most men who are successful in busi- ness, in journalism, in radio, in the theater or motion pictures, or in any of a dozen other fields of occupation, are men who be- gan participating in. athletics when they were boys. Today they might limit their actual in- dulgence in sports to golf, boating, fishing, hunting or handball, but in school they were active in baseball, basketball, foot- ball, track, gymnastics, swimming, hockey, field athletics or soccer. They are strong men today, and success- ful in life because they learned many vital lessons in athletic competition. My hope is to see a surging new interest in sports develop in young America of today to assure our nation of better pre- pared men for tomorrow, both physically and mentally. Be active, play ball, or get into your spiked shoes and onto the cinder track; take up your tennis racquet, or get into your swimming trunks — but play, and build, and grow strong. You are the America of tomorrow that we ' re fighting for today! A9 ALL-STAR TEAM PAGE SIXTY
