Bill, as Robin sailing champion of So­ dus Bay Yacht Cltib for ,1940 when the Aug. 25 race in which he clinched the series was de­ clared a legal race in a reversal of a former decision by the re­ gatta committee last Safurd.ay. Tim. who look a third in that disputed face, captured the championship by one-half of one percentage point over his brother, who won that contested event. The committee, which had upheld the decision of Roy Robinson, chairman, in calling the race off, reversed its deci­ sion following a petition circu­ lated by Commodore L. K. Stuart, and declared the final series sail a legal one-lap race. ' “Chip” Stuart Sweeps Snipe Class In the annual Paton Memorial Trophy serfes over the Labor Day week-end.

Newark Elks, victors in the circuit’s initial year, will defend their crown in a; 38-match, -schedule carrying through the next 34 weeks. Eight new. quints joined the league this year, four each from Ontario and Lyons, to make the Wayne wheel a rival in size to the big Finger Lakes Associa­ tion. Four clubs will also roll in Newark, Sodus, and Wolcott Under the handicap system, with one point given for taking each game and for high total phis to determine the match winner.

By DON BIRD * * ¥ Summer Strikes Out . . . • >— COMES the virtual end of summer’s long list of sports and a brief lull between athletic seasons, for which none is more grateful than yours truly, True, a few odds and ends remain to be wiped up. but locally sum­ mer has sung its swan song and the days of football, bowling, hunting, and basketball will soon be with us. SOFTBALL did its fadeout last week when Lyons Santellis, winners ot the Wayne tourney, sloshed through rain and mud Saturday afternoon to drop a 5-2 decision to Shortsville Fire­ men iii the first round of state play at Rochester. Bespectacled “Buzz’'Reese was bothered by the raindrops on his bi-focals, but got by five innings while the Wayne entry rolled up a 2-0 score on timely h itting by Frank Corthals and tarry Vitaro. Then in the sixth he walked two, muf­ fed a bunt in the gooey dirt, and saw My Ohmann’s perfect stop at short and peg to home drop­ ped by Cirrincirone to let in one run. Then O’Brien clouted a triple and scored later to give Shortsville its entire total on a single hit.-The Firemen dropped their second clash 12-0 to Ko­ dak PaTk. “' defending state champ who won again in two defeats of Kodak Dusties this week. So pack the softballs in mothballs, hoys; it’s pigskin weather now! * * *. WHICH brings us to the grid­ iron and its annual fanfare of double rever.se spinners, triple quarterback sneaks, and ten thousand voices yelling for Si- wash to block that kick. Right here at Newark High we expect to see a pretty good schoolboy eleven defend its Tri-County crown. Although Coaches “Joe” Hatsell and Dick Washburn profess tp havej o \panzer di- visions\. \dive'bom b e rsh or “aerial blitzkriegs” in sight to use against the opponents, they’ll have a nearly complete veteran . team, without a single star, and should work together well in what wil] surely be tough going. They started Tuesday with 35 candidates and face the opener in two weeks. Each mail brings us reams of copy on the big col­ lege and pKergrid machines, but we mustn’4 deprive the daily papers on their main autumn diet. . . * * .* ALli& gdttiitg into an early jjjHlil s - swing, bowling takes the stage tomorrow night when the >Wayne circuit, enlarged to 20 teams this season, rolls into ac­ tion in Nrevark, Ontario, Sodus, Wolcott, and Lyons. The local league will be organized this week and will roll on slides here so drastically re-decorated they appear almost new-. . . Now that Rochester's Wings seem headed to bear out our prediction and the Yanks are getting closer every day, we begin to hedge on Brooklyn ih the National loop. It may be wishful guessing, but many a pennant has been won in the stretch .. . . Frankie Gra­ vino, hurler for Williamson, W. Va., is now in the playoffs of the Mountain State League, in which his club won the first half pennant, and is expected home in mid-month. * * * BASEBALL memories were re­ vived here this week by Ross Lee and Fred Frey, who were some pumpkins as pitchers hereabouts 40 years ago. Those were \the days when the team, would de­ part a t 6 30 a m and drive in a \carryall” to play in Clyde. Lyoris, -Palmyra, and even on Eagle Island, arriving home late at night. Both recalled a 1,4- inning game back about 1899 in which Lee hurled for Port Gib­ son against Frey for Newark, with the P.O.’s winning out, 13- 11. Lee hadn't thrown a ball that year, but went 11 innings before he threw his arm out. a break that ended his pitching career. A quantity of \fire water”, however, enabled him to finish the long battle hurling under- iLand -and hc-wound -up by strik­ ing out 28 batters. . Frey was struck on the finger by Lee while a t bat arid was relieved on the mound by \Bill” Purchase, one of the best shortstops around at the time “We didn't use padded mitts either,” Lee recounted. “The pitcher never had one and many of the field­ ers didn’t, except for catcher and first baseman. And the ball was just as h ard, or h a rder”! . . Those were the horse and buggy, days! ways at Wolcott. The defending champion Elks quint will be composed of Ted Beales, captain, Parke . Reeves, \Chub” Perduyn, Roy Baylard, all vets of the 1939 campaign, -and an unselected kegler as fifth man. Holloway’s club will in­ clude Marsh Livingston, Leon Tobey, Ken Hoff, John DeDplder, Clare Goossen, and Bob Haus- man, all new to county play. Mason’s* Tams will roll with Carl Janack, Oakley Douglas, Jess Elliott, Eber Morask, arid T. J. Colacino, while Bilottas will show a strong lineup in Mike Colacino, Tony DeMott,, Joe and Tom Gravino, Frank olacino, and John Bilotta. ther Teams Listed Lyons entries show Ed Palm­ er’s Clyde team, formerly rolling here, as Lyons Elks, Phil’s Shells of Clyde, Holloway’s of Lyffins, and Witt’s Grill. From Ontario teams entered are Goetzmari’s Grill, Williamson Lumber, On­ tario Golf Club, and Partridge's, while Sodus will enter. Brownie & Pete's. Gaudinos. Atlantlcs. and H. S. Nortons. Wolcott will be represented by Jarfeways, Metcalfs, Foodhavens, and Mar­ ten’s. The league is under direction of Lisle Wiley qf Wolcott as president, Al Thomas of Sodus as vice-president, and F. J. (Chub) Perduyn of Newark as secretary-treasurer. A prize fund larger than ever is expect­ ed to aggregate $1,375, with $125 set up for the league champions. — --------- o— ------ - Local Chess Club to Open Season Tonight First meeting of the Newark Chess Club -for 1940-41 will be held tonight at the home of the. president. James Jenkins, 723 South Main St \ . The club, an affiliate of the Finger Iftkes Chess Society, pians meetings for jpiay each Thursday evening, with various kinds of tourneys ^throughout the winter. Jenkins said, and any local chess player is wel­ come to attend. Bernard Simon is vice-president arid Dr. V. James Palmeri secretary-treas­ urer of the club. By Birdie ' WINNING the Vaux Memorial- PlaqUe was a case of blind vic­ tory for -Russ Beckwith. On be­ ing notified Tuesday that his S3-.25-68 had captured Ithe, trophy,. Beckwith confessed he didn’t ,eveu know that he was ■competing for it; that he had just gone over Monday and played around for fun. He didn’t sign up for the sweepstakes, either, which would have netted him three bails. \‘‘It’s the first tiling I ever won in golf,\ Russ exclaimed. Good going! * * * IN the chase for the Punch Bt>wl title Pete Bohusz eliminat­ ed a pre-tourney favorite when he capsized Bob Hall, 2 and 1. during the past week. Pete played with a 7 handicap arid Hail had 23 . . . In the lower bracket Hank Coleman disposed of Howard Franklin, 2 up, and must play Clarence Vander- brook.
