The rainbow brick covering will be put on in the early Spring. Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Kissling and family of Park Service, Har- pez\s Ferry are leaving this week for their vacation, lasting through field. And ,~lthough ,~he 153-pound average may seem to be somewhat light, an average of 48 polnts per man, per season, is ~o small scor- ing punch for a coach to have on any high SChOOl team. Turning to the line here again the Charles Town High 'Panthers had the best potential material and it ran all the way from one to the other. As a matter of fact the selection problem was made so difficult this year by the wealth of all-sectional linemen which the Panthers had. Actually the quest- ion was not which ones were good enough to make the team, but ra- ther which ones must be left off to make room for several outstand December. They will visit Mrs. Kis inK linemen on other teams in the slings ,parents Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Burz~ey in Omaha, Nebraska and ,will visit Mr. Kisslings parents, key. and Mrs. Karl Kissling in Kansas City, Mo. During their va cation, Mr. Kissling will spend one weekend in Chicago, Ill, where Mr. will give a talk at the ~-Iigh Noon Club. They plan to re- turn to Harpers Ferry the first of the New Year. The Kissling fam- ily spent Thanksgiving weekend in Philadelphia, Pa. as'~guests of. the H. C. Cutler family who have visited in Harpers Ferry. They toured Hopewell Village which is a National Park Service area and saw many Historical sights. Mrs. Lena White is recuperat- ing nicely at her home after un- dergoing surgery in City Hospital, Martins'burg recently, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Black of Dur ham, ,N. 'C. spent Thanksgiving at the home of Rev. and Mrs. Ar- rzold Hoffman. Mrs. Walter Longerbeam is ex- pected to return to her home soon after being a patient in the Uni- versity Hospital in Charlottesville, Va. for the past month where she! underwent surgery. Mrs. H. T. McDonald and Mrs. Charles 'Wolfe returned home on Sunday after spending Tha~nksgiv inK a~nd the weekend with relati- ves in the Was,hington, D. C. area and in the ~altimore, Md. area res pectively. Allstadt's Hill Near Bolivar The Scene of Many Wreck~ Again Allstadt's Hill near Bolivar which a few years ago was the dread of local drivers when wet. or the least bit icey and was a haz ard for strangers a~ud the scene of many accidents at least one death and caused serious injuries to quite a few persons by trucks turning over, cars skidding and running together and etc. After a coxple-' years of this dangerous condition the State Road Com- mission had quite a bit of work done to the Highway at that point and for about two years the con dition has been very much improv ed with a mm.imum of accidents but for the past two ,months ev- cry time it rains t,f only a shower there is at least one accident on Allstadt's Hill. On last Monday night there were two with huge tractor trailer trucks involved. While ~no one was seriously in- jured Vhey could both have had serious results, especially the sec ond one. A tractor-trailer driven by H. L. Vines of the Malone Fret ght Lines and loaded with several thousand pounds of hydrosulfite concentrate got out of control and ended up on the lawn of Mr. and Mrs Adam Capriotti. As the trail er careened dow~ the hill it str,ack a parked car, it almost into a house as the trailer came to a stop several drums of' hydro sulfite went flying out of the truck. Due to the moisture in the air, most of the chemical ,burst into flames, causing a suffocating gas oder. State Police, ~arpers ~erry Firemen and wrecker crew men worked until well past mid: night ,before the debris was clear e%~Pe" Brunswick, Md. fire com- pany was called and asked to sta,~d 'by at the Fire Co. Hall. Ear~[ ier the same evening and at' al- most the same spot another trac- tor trailer collided with a car driv en .by 'Daryl 'Wheeler of Baltimore.: The driver was injured and taken to" Charles Town General Hospit0A with painful injuries. 'Local pc0-: pie are hoping that something will be done very s~on to try to prey, ent so ma~y accidents at this spot. section. No Question About En&~ There was no question but that Charles Town's two ends-Dickie Dailey, at 185 pounds and 6-1 and Bobby Spinks at 6-0 and weighing 175 pounds, were the best. Not only could they block and run but they were two of the best pass receivers to come out of Charles Town High in some yea~.'s. Dalley also proved to be ~ great defen- sive end. At the tackle slots another Charles Town great, Danny Eis: too,u, a Class "AA" All Stater, who also played a lot of defensive end positron, was named at one post and Charlie Cttnningham, the b al- wark of the winless Martinsburg High line, got the other one. Eis- mon, a big 6-2 lad who tips the scales ~tt 205 Pounds is the only re~ter from last year's team and he is also the first lJlayer in the secti~ ever to figure in the All-Sectional selections three years in a row. , At the guard posts are two of the most potent middle-weight linemen in the area in Jimmy Coulter 5-10 and 16~ pounder from Charles Town; and Skip Kil mer, 5-10 and 165 pounder from Martinsbur~. Coulter Was one of the best linebackers the Charles Town High Panthers have had in some years, while Kilmer was switched from the center post at Martinsburg this season to fill a line-backer slot on the defense. Another big man in the Charles Town line. David VanMetre, 225 pound six-foot junior was by far the biggest and best center in the sectl(m, while Richard Bussard, the much smaller, but just as rug- ged and determined Harpers Fer- ry High center, line-backer and near the end of the season full- back, was named as an alternate center. This line-up gives the All-Sec- tional llne an average of 180 pounds with pleetty of speed and brawn. With so many players of or near equal caliber on the other teams in the section, excluding the powerful P~nthers, it was once again decided to name a number from each team to the honorable mention list.
