The Federal Reserve and the comptroller of the currency have made a list of consumer fights in brochures they will send to the banks they reg- ulate. 24-2 Jefferson Squad Gears For Sectional The bounding Jefferson High School baseball team, riding the crest of an impressive 18-game win streak, meet their final two regular season opponents this weekend, in Morgantown, in preparation for the single elimination state sectional tournament scheduled to begin next week. The Cougars, who bounced back from early season back-to- back losses to Martinsburg and Frederick, will face Morgan- town St. Francis Friday evening and University High at 1:00 p.m., Saturday. Head Coach John Lowery scheduled the two Monongahelia County opponents immediately after he learned late Tuesday afternoon that the St. Francis Invitational Tour- nament had been cancelled. In AAA sectional competition, the 24-2 Cougars will face Hampshire (9-3) at Shenandoah Junction, at I:00 p.m., Tuesday, May 8. The winner will have a home field advantage at I:00 p.m., May 10, against Berkeley Springs, which received a first round bye. A victory there would vault Jefferson into the 12 noon, Saturday, May 12, sectional final, against Martinsburg, Frankfort or Keyser. A Jef- ferson - Martinsburg match-up would be played at Shenandoah Junction, but the Cougars will be on the road if they meet either Frankfort or Keyser. Senior mound ace Jay Mahoney (7-1)is expected to pitch against St. Francis on Friday, and then oppose Hampshire in the sectional opener. Mahoney, who recovered from an early Season illness to finish strong, with 33 strike outs in his last three outings, holds the Cougar record of 22 career victories. Senior Randy Rutherford (6-0) will face Berkeley Springs if the Cougars survive the first-round contest, according to Lowery. Heading into the season finale, the Cougars show a .306 team batting average, having doubled their opponents' run total -- 212 to 106 -- allowing only 2.32 earned runs a game.

"Donna is the best female recruit we have ever signed in swimming here at Shepherd," commented Gibson. "I look for her to be the first girl to score points in national competition for us, and I'm very pleased to have her coming to Shepherd," the head mentor commented. Russell was a co-captain on the William Penn High School swim team in New Castle, Del.
