SPORT HIGHLIGHTS... (Dimmed out by your fumbling scribe) As'Madam Abbott is busy on another literary confection for this sheet, and as press-time is breathing down our neck«3.we will try to emulate your former efficient sportscaster "Grantiand Lomax Irwin" though we" can see from here that we are waging a dismal struggle* ••• Anyhow. • • .Millburn High's quintet pushed Westfield to the court wall with a score of 41-36 ^ last week.., oh.owev.er, since then, we regret to inform you that they subsequently lost to Madison (despite a great last quarter rally) - final score 36-41...oand we further weep to' relate that, this week, Summit came down to'tiie local court, and returned triumphant by 9 points, i.e. 29-38, On the Alleys, it looks as though Casa Columbo still holds the' "A" League team standing, with individual high scores by Wade 345, and Stieve 256.«,3oln the "C" League, L Tavern holds the team standing with individual high scores by Ciullo 244, and Jackson 277 (WOWt that/s bowling U ) The only other sports now going on, in this neck of Joisey are spasmodic bouts against ole man winter with a snow shovel.„P„and, incidentally, 'nowadays we walk,, from necessity, as well as for sport..» and like it It osVsoo In closing, we can only pray that your former commentator will point her toes north Tere the baseball season starts, otherwise we guarantee our "Copy" will have you be wjJ.de red I (C'mon home, Mike t) . . .
