I0 The Goldendale Sentinel Thursday, March 3, 1960 . - i ! i J i~ll i , i i ii ,ill II THE SENTINEL Goldendale wrapped up its A league basketball campaign last Friday, taking its 15th vic- tory of the season and the 10th in league play. This week's victim was Central Catholic. The Timberwolves won by a score of 49 to 35, on the losers' court. This was Central's last chan, ce to gain a berth in the district tournament. Thursday night, the Wolves, along with eight other teams, pair off in the first round of the do-or-die district tourna- ment at Wapato for the right to go to state as the south-cen- tral district's number-two en- try in the tournament. Losers will be out of the running since this is a single- elimination joust. Of the four ~irst-round winners, two will remain unbeaten after Friday's games. Saturday these two vic- Ort Olsen's Sport Sputters The state game depart- ment has been kept busy throuffh the years trying to keep ahead of the growing umbers of hunters who flock to fields in pursuit of game birds. Latest develop- ment is the introduction of turkeys to this area, when game men released a dozen turkeys from New Mexico at the Klickitat Game Range. Back in 1939, they were working on the all- time favorite --- pheasant. The first 100 from the brood stock of the Kenne- wick state farm were re- leased in the Pasco area and more were expected to be released in Klickitat county and other areas. O That same year, a small group of ski enthusiasts found clear weather and the fastest snow conditions of the year at the Wickey Creek Ski area. The small numbers there who took advantage of the ideal con- ditions, crammed too much skiing into morning hours and had to quit because of exhaustion by early after- noon. In other skiing areas, the third annual junior ski meet was being planned at the Cooper Spur area, where a White Salmon ski team was invited to compete with teams from Bend, Portland, The Dalles, Yakima, Med- ford and Pendleton. The Mt. &dams Ski club tournament also was only two weeks away. In spite of t'he recent snowfall, most of us are looking forward an end of winter.

Goldeadale Phone 3-4791 and Used ha Town it it I II ti lit it tors meet for the big playoff. In the game played last Fri- day, the Wolves and Central Chieftains both were literally "off the ,beam" most of the way. Central had a 3-0 lead after two minutes, but failed to score again until just before the first ,half ended. Meanwhile Goldendale was not faring much better. It took the Wolves six minutes to dent the scoring column, as a bar- rage of shots was thrown at the basket with few finding the mark. Fumbleitis, t r a v e 1 ing penalties and various other in- 'fractions and miscues ham- pered both teams most of the way. It was one of the fastest games that Golflendale has played Vhis year and yeas es- pecially fast in the low-scoring first half, in which the Timber- wolves had a meager 12-11 lead at the intermission. The third quarter appeared to be a replica of the first two. The principal difference was that the Wolves took a few re- bounds instead of letting Cen- tral take them all. The shoot- ing was no hotter but t~he locals had .more shots, and managed to put through 17 to the Chief- tains' 8. This put the victors ahead for keeps, although they were threatened for awhile in the final stanza. Wolves Find Range In the final quarter Golden- dale finally found the range and began hitting at a normal rate of accuracy. The Timber- wolves got nine field goals in the fourth period, compared to 10 in the first three periods. Soph Len Wilber led the way with three straight baskets to put the Wolves out of reach. The Goldendale fast break had little chance to show itself, with bad passes and numerous bobbles marring the efforts. But this was offset by Central's ,cold-shooting. The Chieftains hit only 20 per cent in their final outing of the season. Central will have the entire te~m back next season, and that team will include 12 sen- iors and at least two juniors. There are no seniors this year since the school has been open only three years. The G61dendale B team, with the entire traveling squad of 11 scoring at least two points each, routed the Central re- serves, 60-28. Ahead all the way, the locals were never threatened, and built up leads of 10-1 and 36-11. Dick Porter was the leading scorer with 10, and he had plenty of backing. In fact, the freshmen alone ac- counted for 23 of the 60 points. Thursday the freshmen downed Hood River for t~he second time.

"It indicates careful, law-abiding driving on the part of everyone, including visitors to the county." While the present record is outstanding, the chief pointed out that it can change quickly to one of great tragedy. Only those who drive have control over the record, and a moment of carelessness can tally any- wh~re hem one to a dozen deaths.

Two Tourney Spots In Valley A League Rather Than Three With the arrival of the dis- trict playoffs, it has been a matter of concern to many ~fans why the Valley "A" league has only two state tournament barths this year, instead of the allotted three. Central Catholic of Yak- ima, new in the league this season, evidently was not informed fully of fahe rules, and did not include its fresh- men in Lts enrollme~ figures. If the freshmen had been in. eluded, the Valley "A" league would have had enough stu- dents to qualify for three playoff slo~s. The present "A" league di- visitors were set up in 1957 on a population basis. Every other year the Valley (South- Central) was to have three state tourney entries and on a~tern~te years the Valley was to have just two. It was established in this manner to offset population growths in other parts of the state. Next year, with Central in- eluding both freshmen and seniors for the firat ~me, the Valley dis~ict expect~ to have three entries in the "A" tourney at Tacoma. As a result, the district tourna- ment will have to be revised for the fourth consecutive ses~or~ CLARENCE STATIONED AT CALIFORNIA ARMY BASE Pvt. Johnny G.
