Keens said the tournament will be staged on neutral alleys .this year, moving to the new "Dual Lanes" one mile east of Hagers- ~,own on U. S. Route 40. These new lanes were opened just recen~ ly and feature the l wtest automa- tic pin-setting equipment. Since there are only 12 .alleys wt this new bowling con%or Keens announced hxt this year's roll- offs wil,l be "split". Half of the teams will roll at @ p. m. and ~the o4~her halt s.~ 6:15 p. m. Also, in accordance with goner ally accepted tournamen~ rules, ,teams .tl~is year will be composed of only Tire bowlers instead of seven as in previous years. How- ever, free substl,tu~ons will be per mi~ted at ,t~he beginning of ~the sec end and third games. Districts wil.l be permi,tted to en ter as many teams as ,they wan as long ~ts each team represents an individual district or district de parCment. For exaxnple, ~ disrivt can supply a "district office" team a service department team, a line department team, etc. Each team entered, however, must represent a differen~ company dlivsion. The bowling cemmi~,ee reserves ,the right ~o make the final deci- sion, beth in the case of entries, and the ~ime :teaxns will roll. As in Previous years, hig~ pin- ,fall for three games will de0ermine botl~ team and lual winner~ for botch ladies and men. The SPORTS NEWS AND VIEWS From Pa~e One From Page One of Fayetteville his third pick... New Caps and Socks " ... Charles Town Legion baseball players will step out on Sunday, May 3, wearing brand new style, design and color caps opening day here. New socks will also be the order of the day as genial Jim Morison, business manager of the ball club, ordered 25 caps and dozens of sets of socks early this week... Undecided As Yet . . far from decided on just who will do the umpiring here this season for the Charles Town Legion ball club, Legion officials are, right now, casting about far and wide for some capable men to fill the important jobs... The likable Lightner brothers, Earl and Bill, who have been working the games here for the past six years have told ball club heads that they are not interested in work- ing regularly this season... They do not plan to give up the game entirely, we understand, but will take a little rest this season after spending eight or ten full summers calling the balls, strikes and the bases... Little Baseball Humor . . An indignant woman charged into a psychiatrist's office to demand, "You'll have to take my husband in hand--but quick. He's convinced himself he's a big- league baseball manager and keeps throwing baseballs at me!" Why don't you order him to stop?" asked the psy- chiatrist." 'Tm afraid to," admitted the lady..."He keeps threatening to trade me to the Washington Senators." Due to the extremely heavy cost of having .to provide room and board to such a large number of players. ,and also because of Vhe steady decline of revenue from the event each year. it has been de- cJded ~hat ,beginning this season only four ,teams will be partici- pating in ~,he West Virginia School boy state "baseball tournament. In past years eight tea~ns have been taking part in the tournament and officials of ~he West Virginia Secondary School Act~vi,ties Com- mission, report the cost of room- ing and boarding some 200 play- ers, coaches and managers each year at tournament time has in recent years, far exceeded the re- venue, which has been declining wi,th each tournament. Thus in cutting down on the size of tournament play, i,t has been necessary to re-arrange ,the various sec~tional and regional tour nament bracket~ ,throughout the state. And in doing this ,many schools had to be moved out of one section or region and placed into another. For instance in the Eastern Pan handle section Mar~insburg has been moved ou~ of the Jefferson- Berkeley County bracket and plac ed in one w,hich includes Berkel- ey and Morgan county teams. As a result of the change only Charles Town, Shepherdstown and Harpers Ferry, will be in ~he Jeff erson County sectional. Originally Page Jackson High was placed in this bracket to give it a four-team set-up, but Page Jackson officials said this week they found i,t im- )ossible to field a baseball .team. In the Berkeley-Morgan coun- ;y bracket will be Martinsburg, Hedgesville, Berkeley Springs and Paw Paw. Indications are now that the winner of the Berkeley-Morgan county sectional wilt meet the win her of the Jefferson Couny sec- tional. Charles Town High Principal Gordon Eismon said Tuesday that since only three teams ate in the Jefferson county battle, the three schools have decided :to accept ~he results of the regular season play to detetTnine the seotional champ ions unless a tie results. In such case a playoff would have ~o be held in Jefferson county. ident's Trophies will be awarded $o team high set in the ladies' and men's 'divisions and o individual ,high set winners in eac~h ra~e. If enough teams entering the roll-offs are in, forested, a buffet supper will be served at ,t~e bow- ling center between the afternoon and evening competition. In order to ~nake ~Vhe ,proper arrangements ~eams are urged ~o express ,their preference us early as possible.
