Chicago, Ill Happy Birthday with the wish that every other day of the year will be happy too. Father. THE LONG ISLAND NEWS and THE OWL. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1940 -,..- PAGE NINe
Our column was lost in the shuffle
last week, so we'll have to do
double duty this week.
Football is a very queer game.
After trouncing East Rockaway
19 to 0 in a thrilling running attack,
the Cyclones lost bitterly to
Garden City, the score being 25 to
O. But it was far from as onesided
as the score would indicate.
The line played exceptionally well,
and Garden City didn't get far
against it. In fact, South Side aggressively
penetrated the Gray and
Maroon time and again, gaining 7
first downs to Garden City's 2. But
a couple of weak kicks, a badly
placed fumble, and a misdirected
pass and-that tells the storv.
Tomorrow we play our first home
game, when the Cyclones will meet
Malverne. We hope the rally tonight
will put the team in good
spirits for a victory.
Tony Milone played an outstanding
game but was injured, in the latter
part. Wally Smith played"a marvel7>
us game, and Veit did the work
of three players; but the real
laurels go to the Sea Cliff goalie,
who made sure that the South Side
score was zero.
The Harvest Hop was a wonderful
success as the first G. O. dance.
The decorations, cornstalks, pumpkins,
and red leafed boughs were
very impressive, and the music was
.... really mellow... Report cards are
out today, and if you haven't settled
down to brass tacks you'd better
get ready for a session with a
tired business man... The Thalians
have chosen a cast and are now in
rehearsal for their first play, nAIl
Thru the Night," to be presented
on December 7th... The Camera
Club's first photography contest
has begun... Patrolman MacGuire
gave the Senior High a very fine
talk on safety on the highways. He
presented it in a way that was
amusing and it made a very good
i.mpression on the audience... Keep
a weather eye on the girls' hockey'
team. They claim to have the
fastest forward nne on the Island.
Mr. Wirth, the faculty's newest
member, has taken over the cross
country track team, which, with a
smaller team and fewer veterans,
was successful in beating Garden
City. Bob McLaughlin came in
first, John Green placed an easy
second, and Rod Stevenson fourth.
Mr. Wirth is well pleased with his
team and its spirit, and he has high
hopes for a victory over Mepham
Surprise! It didn't rain last Friday,
and the soccer team did play!
They won! Baldwin succumbed 1
to 0 in an overtime period, when
Dick Wirtz booted the ball through
the posts for the only score of the
game. Herb Veit took the defensive
play in his hands, and along with
Tom Rusher and John Green,
held the Baldwinites completely in
check, while forwards Duesenberry,
Milone, and Bartow took the offensive.
T.his week the tables were turned
on South Side, and Coach Ottman's
lads bowed 2 to 0 against Sea Cliff,
a noticeably superior force. Again
