Flash! Ray Sturgeluski bits 238!
Plash! Ray Sturgeluski hits 238!
Yes, it was an eventful day, that
last Thursday that the bowling
league rolled. Despite his terriffic
238 game and his 538 series,
“Sturg” didn’t have the high in
dividual series of the day. That
honor once again went to “Laugh
ing Boy” A 1 Liebau with a 548
series and a 205 garoe-that is gett
ing to be a habit with him. Ray
Reed really let go, despite warn
ings of a few weeks ago to slow
down; and slammed out a 191-525
series. Despite forgetting his'hat,
“Uncle Dave” Thurbon banged out
his usual “fair” 191-507 series.
Wish I could do “fair” once in a
while like that.
High team game honors went to
the Loons in the game in which
Sturg and Reed went wild-732.
Losing the first one, the Loons
took the last two from the Eagles
despite : the valiant efforts of Liebau
and Scheimer' 173-477.
Losing the first game by one
pin, the lowly Penquins, led by
Belferman’s 183-469 series and
“Pappy” Demp's 161-469, came
back to win the next two from the
Robins. Korn was high man for
the*"Ravens- with 181-514 series.
This game featurjd the return of
Dick McGreary, and a -nice return
it .was too, to the -league -with a
173-482 series. Welcome back Dick!’

for two games. Hill and Monahan

Pirate Treasure
By Penny O’NeHl
As the winter winds begin to
leave the cracks and corners of
Behrend Center, you can smell
spring just around the corner and
it' is said that in spring a young
man's fancy turns to thoughts of
love, and might I add baseball.
And speaking of baseball, which
everyone is doing these days, let
us speak of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Since so many of the fellows and
girls are' from Pittsburgh and
since a lot of the Erie people
came down to see a few of the
games, I decided to take a poll to
see" who was the most popular
player on the team.
Well, I asked millions and mil
lions" of people, and, yes, I suppos
ed you already guessed it. . . .It
was Ralph Kiner, popular home
run' hitter and left fielder for the
Bucs. Although lie was named the
top notch "player of the team,
quite a few other people express
ed their opinions about some of the
other' players.
