Then during the Summer of 1959 and even right up to the start of the 1960 football season Coach Rice had one setback :after another and it looked like a hope less cause for the Tigers to come through the 1960 season with !iI'IIIililIiliilI'- ilIII'- iIIilii- lilIIIIHII'-"---il on BOOK MATCHES [ (If You Can) =: '?" $4.10 EXPRESS CHARGES ".= i PLUS 5% DISCOUNT " ~[! . ,. i Pr,ce: = i:l (5,00) Books) ........ $34.95 Total -" ;i" ..,...... 4no 39.os. ffi I with 5% Off & No Express ........ $33.20 YOU SAVE ........ $ $'$-----5 !

However, a telephone call early Wednesday morning from the Bureau head [ Alhle|k Dinner :May 18 quarters in Washington said that several of the key players had just received important assign- ments which would take them out of the city for several days and the team would' be unable to make a return trip this Sunday. Mgr. Carroll took it upon himself to find the Legion a worthy and suitable opponent and has sche- duled the Volkswagon team of the I adu trial Leag 'tn to Come h6re" gfinday and open the season with the Legion. Spon sored by a large automobile deal ;er in the Nation's Capitol, the] Volkswagen have in their lineup quite a prominent list of former minor league and college ball players and can be expected to i provide top opposition for the Le- gion here Sunday. The FBI team will return here at a later date in the schedule, Manager Bill Carroll said Wednesday nmrning. The opening game ceremonies will be the same as were sched- uled for last Sunday, with the flag.raising by the American Le- gion Color Guard and other ev- ents on the program taking the spotlight at 2:15. Manager Woody Waiters said Monday he plans to start either Dick Forrest, a big right hander who formerly pitched for Boons- bar. in the South Mountain Leag ue or Walter Burr, a lefthanded mound ace for the Shepherd Col- lege batsmen. Also on hand to take a turn on the mound if need ed .will be Al "Red" Norwood, star of the Legion mound staff for several years, Bill Isherwood, and Gilbert Miller, who in past years have also turned in some fine pitching performances for the Legion. The FBI team and the Legion were all set Sunday to get the baseball season underway even though there had been several light showers Sunday morning, but just .a few minutes before game time the rains care down so much of a record., Coach Rice had lost his assist- ant coach and had gained a new one in Dave Adkins. He had also lost several of the boys he had counted on heavily for the 1960 team. But despite these handicaps and setbacks he and Adkins brought the Tigers through their first undefeated season on the gridiron since 1934. Then on into basketball and here again the Tigers rolled to a sectional championship. Then came track and baseball and Coaches Rice and Adkins in a few short weeks have give the Jeffer son County its's track team and one that has already provided some real surprises in sectional and area competition. And in baseball the Tiger batsmen, under the coaching of Rice and Adkins last season were edged out for the sectional championship by Mar- tinsburg. The 25 year old Rice is a grad- uate of West Virginia Tech where he starred" ifl football and base- ball. Adkins also starred in foot- ball and baseball at West Virginia Tech before coming to Harpers Ferry.

Although it is not known just what Keyser, Ridgeley and the two Romney schools will enter in the meet, indications are, based on what Berkeley, Jefferson and Morgan county schools have shown in past meets, that the ev- ent will be one of the most hotly contested and interesting Region- al meets ever held. The Charles Town tIigh track- men defending champions and Martinsburg are expected to wage a real battle in the field events, with both team~: being strong in the shot put, discus, broad jump and pole vault. Harpers Ferry and Shepherdstown are also expected to score in the field events. With the exception of the 440 yard dash, where both Martins- burg and Charles Town are strong most of the teams in Bel~keley; Jefferson and Morgan counties are weak the track events. And if Keyser, Ridgeley and the Rom- ney Schools have any strength in the track events, the meet'could go right down to the last event before it is decided. Charles Town will be depend- Kisner.
