The pitching burden, for in- stance, is likely to fall heavily oh husky righthander Brian Sny- der (who can play a good third base and swing a strong stck) nd lefthander Tim Rose (another pretty fair hitter who can double in the outfield). Sophomore Jim Richards and junior Terry Kadoun lead the cat- cluing brigade, sophs Ron Landis id Don Clary are battling sen- ior John Anderson at first base; suph Tim Sheedy and junior Dar- rell Cochran will bid strongly for outfield consideration; sophs Dave Johnson and Denny Bailey are promising infield aspirants.

Close-calling officials whistled 32 fouls against the Blazers and sent four Shelton players to the bench, while two Hoquiam play- ers met the same fate as the Cubs were accumulating 19 nersonals. AFTER A 13-13 deadlock at the half, the Cubs sped ahead at 27- 22 after the third quarter and then fought off the Blazer chal- lenge in the final period. Steve Looney, the Blazers' 8th grade starter on the varsity, was the first to hit the bench on fouls, early in the third quarter, then was followed by Dave Winn, an- 'other starter, and substitutes Ton] Fredson and Bill Archer in the final period.

McInelly 560) as Chub Nutt put the clincher on with a 230 finale. Glen Roessel's 221 opener earned the losers their lone point.

Sund feels his squad will bc strongest in the three distance events with lettermen Brnce Gar- dner in the mile. Brian Briekert and Jim Orr in the half mile. and Paul Brown in the 440 as the probable top men in those events. with Lentz Robinson adding depth. THE CLIMBERS will paCR point strength in tire weights, to(} with letterman Gary Combs and promising sophs Fred Lament and Bill Batstone to back him up. Let- terman Jim Lamont is capable of 11 feet and up in the pole vault but will need help from sopho- mores to strengthen this event. The hurdles appear to be the weakest point in the Climber track armor. Letterman Joe Wa- ters is a capable low-sticker but has nothing in sight to back him up. The broad and high jumps will be anchored by a trio of let- termen--George Johnson. Ron Orr and Paul Hanson- who will likely find some rough competition from sophomores coming along. THERE ARE NO leLtermen in the sprints unless Waters is used in the century, but such sophs as Tom Lowe and Terry LaBissoniere brighten the outlook in this de- partment, as does Ed Latham. an- other soph in from Hood Canal, in the discus. Sund said he is at a loss to evaluate Highelimber strength in comparison with the other six Olympic schools but feels his Red and Black thinelads will give a good account of themselves if the BAG BLASTS 605 IN MERCHANTS LEAGUE Thurston S & L 21 15 Olympic Plywood ............ 20 16 Kimbel Motors ................ 19 1.7 Timber A pplianee .......... 18 18 Prepp's Rexall Store .... 17,2 18!5 Old Mill Tavern ........... 13% 22% Ralph's Serve-U ............ 13 23 High game--Lynn \\;,Vhite 217 High series--Ed Bac 605.
