PAGE TWO Tir{ ROCKLAND COUNTY TIMES HAVERSTRAW, N. I SEPTEMBER H. 1953 Caseys Meet Cards on Sunday for Title Schassler-Woods Pitching Duel To Be Resumed When the Pearl River-Nanuet Cardinals and the Haverstraw Caseys meet at 2 o ’ clock Sunday afternoon on the Rockland State Hospital field in the final and championship game of the Rock ­ land County Invitation Tourna ­ ment the county ’ s two best pitch ­ ers, Don Woods of the Cards and “ Red ” Schassler of the Brick- fowners, will be facing each other. The Riverites defeated the Caseys 4-1 at Markham Field, Haverstraw on August 17. Woods and Schassler each allowed six hits and each struck out 13 opponents. The two chuckers are time-honor ­ ed rivals. Schassler, a graduate of Haver ­ straw High School, is the property cf the Brooklyn Dodgers organiza ­ tion. Woods, Pearl River High School graduate, hurled jayvee ball for Ithaca College this past spring, and has been scouted by the Philadelphia Phillies. Back in 1951 Schassler pitched the Red Raiders to the P. S. A. L. title and Woods pitched Pearl River to second place, one game behind the Bricktowners. Both hurlers were named to the All- P. S. A. L. team. Woods had a 7-1 record and Schassler an 8-2 ranking. Woods had the most strikeouts, 100, and Schassler paced in shut ­ outs with five. ‘ “ Red ” hurled a no ­ hit, no,-run game and Woods pitched a no-hit, one-run contest. Woods ’ no-hitter was against Schassler and Haverstraw after the Raiders had copped the cham ­ pionship, and he beat the Raiders 6-0. Schassler batted at .360 and Woods at .310 for the P. S. A. L. campaign in ’ 51. This past spring Schassler pitched Haverstraw to another baseball title, posting a 7-1 record and being one of his team ’ s lead ­ ing hitters. He was scouted and signed by the Brooklyn Dodgers. Woods hurled for the Ithaca Col ­ lege Jayvees, recording a 2-1 standing. His victories included beating the Cornell Freshmen. Schassler has a 4-1 record with the Haverstraw Caseys for sum ­ mer play. Woods ’ record with the Cardinals this summer is 7-1. His lone defeat was at the hands of the Nyack A. C., against whom he pitched two-hit ball but lost on errors. Schassler ’ s lone setback was at the hands of Pearl River. In county championship play Woods pitched a no-hit, no-run perfect game against the Suffern Kiwanis Seniors and Schassler hurled 2-hit, 22-strikeout ball in beating the Nyack Panthers. Both have 2-0 tourney records. Schassler hasn ’ t allowed an earned run in 18 innings of tourna ­ ment play, has given up six hits, struckout 38, issued four bases on I balls, and accounted for four hits' in nine trips to the plate. Woods gave up one earned run in 18 innings of tourney play, permitted five hits, fanned 29, and issued three free passes. He is credited with one hit in five times at bat. Both clubs have a balance of plate power and defensive play. Sunday ’ s contest on the Rockland State Hospital “ Polo Grounds ” field should be one of the best baseball games seen in the county this year. The tournament is being spon ­ sored by the weekly newspapers of the county, including The Rock ­ land County Times, in cooperation with the Recreation Department of the Rockland State Hospital. The probable starting lineups Schassler Strikes Out 16 Men As Nyack A, C Drops 3-2 Game The Haverstraw Caseys earned the right to play in the final championship game of the Rock ­ land County Invitation Baseball Tournament last Sunday when they defeated the Nyack A. C. by a 3-2 count in second round com ­ petition before 250 spectators at Rockland State Hospital, Orange ­ burg. As in the first round tourney game when the Bricktowners de ­ feated the Nyack Panthers 17-0, it was “ Red ” Schassler ’ s pitching which predominated in the Casey victory over Nyack. He gave up four hits, three of them bunched in the fourth inning to help score the Aceys ’ two runs, struck out 16, and the lanky Haverstraw hurler didn ’ t issue a base on balls. \Red ” was held hitlcss, however, after going five for four in first round competition. With two out and the tying run on second base it was a sparkling, tumbling catch by Jack Drescher, Haverstraw ’ s second sacker, of C. Fieseler ’ s fly deep toward right field which accounted for the game-ending out. The Nyackers made a game fight of it all the way. ^ Each team did all of its scoring in a single inning, Haverstraw in the third frame and Nyack in the fourth. Other than in its scoring inning Nyack never seriously threatened. Other than in its sco»*ing inning Haverstraw got a runner as far as third in the second and seventh frames. Drescher walked after John Filor had fanned to open the Nyackers ’ third inning. Frank Horan homered over the center fielder ’ s head to put two runs across. Schassler grounded out, short to first. Joe Picarello tripled to left center, and then scored on a passed ball by Catcher W. Gal ­ braith. Cal Brechbiehl singled and stole second base. George Behn flied out to the catcher to end the inning. Carl Brooks reached first on an error at third by Tom Torpey to open Nyack ’ s fourth. B. Buckhout grounded out, second to first. Dom D ’ Auria, Nyack hurler, singled to score Brooks. D ’ Auria was thrown out attempting to steal. B. Burgess singled and was pushed around to score as a result of Fieseler ’ s single and a wild throw by First Sacker Harold Moran. Galbraith ended the inning by striking out. Dom D ’ Auria. an infielder by trade, was on the mound for the losers. He gave up six hits, three of them bunched in Nyack ’ s scor ­ ing inning, struck out five, gave up five bases on balls, and made two wild pitches. and batting orders are: Pearl River Haverstraw Bonomolo, ss.

Lewis Post, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Stony Point, discussed at length the possibility of the formation of a Little League in Stony Point. They finally agreed to have the Post sponsor a meeting to be held in October of all those who are interested to look into this youth activity that has proved so suc ­ cessful in many other communi ­ ties. A committee was appointed to get notices out to all parents and organizations and to handle the meeting. This committee is to make a full report at the next meeting of the Post. The Post also voted the purchase of two medals to be awarded to winners in the Stony Point schools in the county-wide essay contest to be conducted by the Rockland County Council of the Veterans of Foreign Wars this Fall. The Chairman of the Youth Committee, William Watkins, ask ­ ed for and got several volunteers to assist his committee in working with the local PTA in running the activities for Fun Night for the lo ­ cal school children. The chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, Charlps De-* Berry, reported that all arrange ­ ments had been made for the VFW game party to be held Sep ­ tember 26 at the Ambulance Cen ­ ter. Tickets were distributed for the advance sale and a refreshment committee was appointed. After the formal meeing was adjourned by the Post Vice-Com ­ mander, Joseph Reilly, an informal discussion of the proposed build ­ ing was held. The merits of several proposed locations were taken un ­ der consideration by the building committee and each location will be inspected in the near future. A social hour followed Nyack.

POLIO CANCELS RAIDERS ’ GAME WITH MIDDIES By PETER RAMUNDO A severe outbreak of polio in Middletown which has spread to the Middie squad has forced the cancellation of the Middletown High School - Haverstraw High School football game September 27, it was announced this week. A replacement on the schedule has yet to be found, and it is most likely that the Red Raiders will play only six games this season. If a replacement is not found, open ­ ing game for the Red Raiders will be one week later here with Spring Valley, which they ripped apart last year, 50-6. Even though the opener with Middletown has been wiped out. Coach Zev Graham ’ s 1951 P. S. A. L. champions still have a rugged' schedule, and they hope to lengthen their unbeaten string of eight games to 14. The last time the Bricktowners met defeat was! in that decisive game two years- ago against Piermont. Since then, they have romped over every team that stood before them on the gridirop. After the game with Spring Valley, the Red Raiders will travel to Nyack for a night game October 10. This will be followed by a home game with Pearl River, and then they will close the season on the road against Piermont, Suffern and Highland Falls, in that order. Despite heavy losses from grad ­ uation, Coach Earl (Zev) Graham, with a few switches, has closed the vacant spots. Players returning to action on the line are Andrew (Buzzy) lamonica, All-County tackle, Vic Van Zetta and Bob Thayer. Chuck Gulino, a 1951 line ­ backer, and Mike Frimpter, who didn ’ t see much action at the be ­ ginning of last season but who proved himself a fine back in the Piermont and Highland Falls games, have been switched to ends to fill two empty positions. Vincent (Dugan) Kovalsky, who is the only back returning from last year ’ s championship team, will be one of the reasons why the Red Raiders will be tough to beat this year. Five big possibilities for the backfield are Jim Ducey, Jack Goetschius, George Stokes, Gene Zippilli, and Pat Barry. The schedule: Cct. 4 — Spring Valley (N), *50-6 10 — At Nyack (N), 34-32 18 — Pearl River, 37-0 25 — At Piermont, 13-6 Nov. 1 — At Suffern, 41-7 8 — At Highland Falls, 31-7 ♦Last year ’ s score. Little League Will Mark Season Success At Dinner Saturday All good amateur sports leagues wind up their season with ban ­ quets, and the North Rockland Little League is no exception. The juvenile baseball players will be feted at a supper Saturday in Haverstraw High School. Besides the players, parents, league officials and adults who worked on the league will attend. The affair is scheduled to begin at 7:30. Col. A. C. Spalding, treasurer of the league, will be toastmaster. The clergy will take a big part in the proceedings, with the invoca ­ tion by Rabbi Maurice Aranov, a talk by the Rev. Harold Quigley, and benediction by the Rev. Ed ­ mund W. Netter. Lt. William Ecroyd, league president, will welcome the boys and guests. A “ mystery guest ” speaker may be present, but the committee is not advertising his name because he may not be able to make it, but he is of major league calibre. A large trophy donated by Mayor Harry W. Schuler will be donated to the Giants, winners in the league. In addition, a belt with buckle will be awarded by the league to all players in the major league. A gift will be made by Col. Spalding to each of the managers, the only adults who will receive any presents. The minor leagues will have a separate dinner at a later date. Bert Picarello is chairman of this.

WE CAN HELP ‘ YOU PEOPLES BANK OF HAVERSTRAW MEAABER OF FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION Excess ‘ '-H-»XCESS profits ” is a silly phrase. If a 1-i company ever did make too much money, there would be a stampede of new companies entering that business. That new competition would cut down all profits in a hurry. That ’ s the free part of free enterprise. Actually, with inflated prices for equip ­ ment and ridiculous tax rates, American corporations have not made enough profits to keep their plants modern (43% of machine tools in U. S. factories are 10 years old or older). And obsolete equipment soon makes jobs obsolete, too. You can be sure It was someone with no knowledge of the facts of industrial life who named it \excess profits tax. ” It should be renamed and called what it is. Excess tax.
