THE TALK
of
SOUTHSIDE
By PAUL SCHMIDT
Pat Henry was chosen for the
All Long Island hockey team because
of her play at Hofstra last
week, when the hockey team won
one and ~ -st two of the games...
Our neighbors fro m Lawrence
brought us a "".vell assembly on
Friday when their choral entertained
rs. They were really good.
... We agree with Miss Bowe
when she says that her fifth period
Math class is the best she's had in
years. . . J ohn Green placed 18th
out of 120 cross country runners
from all Long Island... A petition
is rising for a Bridge Club in
school. What next? ...
Maybe it was because they were
a little cockv over last week's victory,
or maybe they didn't receive
any feathers to get their goat, but
at any rate the Cyclones lost sadly
to a powerful Long Beach football
team last Saturday. The line was
not holding, nor the defense clicking,
so all the nice running the
backs might have done wouldn't net
them more than the .6 points which
they earned, but it looked pretty
measly against the 20 points Long
Beach rolled up. In the second
quarter, Hal Marks pounded around
end for a good 35 yards, bringing
us to the 10 yard line, where Dick
Kreter smashed off guard for a
beautiful touchdown. Later in the
game Long Beach took the hall
from the same spot on a fumble
Iand their captain dashed 90 yards
in the opposite direction for another
score,
Woodmere travels to Allen Field
tomorrow for an unpredictable but
probably very exciting game.
On the brighter side of this
week's news is the soccer team,
which walked off with a 2 to 0 victory
over Manhasset. In the whole
game, Herb Veit, South Side's ace
goalie, onlv had to stop two kicks,
which he did very efficiently. Although
the game was decisively
won, the Red and Blue should really
have scored more, considering that the ball was continually in
Manhasset territory.
Bill Duesenberrv scored from
lose quarters in tl;e first half, and
Jim Husser on a penalty kick in
the second. Ji11, by the way, has
I played fighting games in the last
two encounters and Bill is in there
punching always, being high scorer
and one of the best forwards. One
can't overlook Tom Gengler at center
halfback though, for he played
the best game of the day, dashing
all over the field and taking the
responsibility of keeping the ball Ialways on Manhasset ground.
P.S.-Wc hope you understand
why we devote so much space to
the soccer team.
Miss Lawson's Latin Club tops
the club news this week. Thirteen
members came out Monday night
to play Latin games, read Latin
. themes, and have a general Latin
good time. Presiding over the
.meeting were: Miss Lawson, advisor;
president, Virginia Hall j vice
president, John McGowan; secretary,
Joan Longley; and treasurer,
Dick Cheswick. There was more
than enough refreshments, and the
members thoroughly enjoyed the
Roman Rummi~~hich they played. I
