In Jefferson County the Charles Town, Harpers FerzT and Shepherdstown High prospects began their pre- season conditioning program and drills Tuesday, and from now until early September you can be sure the coaches won't be wasting time, or taking it easy on the boys. Activity in the Jefferson Coun ty Softball League will come to a close Friday evening and a post season playoff will start Monday evening, Aug. 21 on the Halltown diamond with first and third place teams tangling at 6:30 p. nl. Then on Tuesday evening at the same time and also on the Halltown diamond, the second and fourth place teams will meet. This will be a two out of three game series between the first and third place and second and fourth place teams and then the two winners of these series will meet in a best three out of five series.

Leonard Moves Close To .400 Hlflmg Hark; Stotler Still Leads Bootsey Leonard, former Shep- herd College diamond star, who had been pounding the ball well all season for the Charles Town American Legion batsmen added 28 points to his batting mark i~ last Sunday's game with the Fred erick (Md.) VFW by pounding out three hits in four trips to the plate. And his Sunday efforts moved him to a terrific .392 mark, but he still has a long way to go to catch Tubby Stotler the Legion leader who dropped back .38 points in the game, but still holds a nifty .500 average on the season. Bob Madison also boosted his average 14 points Sunday to a .375 mark and Tom Palamar pick ed up 11 points to up his average to .235. The averages as they stand to date are: NAME AB R H AVE.

S. Route 11, South of Martins- burg and look over the glamor- ous Pikeside Bowl which was op ened Saturday night. Frank Turner, a well known bowling figure in the Hagerstown Md. area, the same man who will build a Bowling Center in the Shenandoah Plaza Shopping Cen- ter, has given the Martinsburg section one of the most beauti- ful and largest bowling centers in the entire area. Offering 28 lanes of the finest in duckpin and tenpin bowling, the Center is ultra-modern in every respect. A 50-ton air-conditioning unit makes bowling at Pikeside Bowl pleasant and enjoyable. There is also the latest in Brunswick and Sherman automatic equipment., the 16 duckpin lanes being Sher man equipment and the 12 ten- pin lanes Brunswick's latest fash ion including the new pin finder. There is a large modern nur- sery, coat racks, water coolers, a large and spacious snack bar, locker rooms for the bowlers and many other conveniences and comforts for both the bowler and spectators.
