N? r '& Westchester Times, Mr. Kfcco, N. Y., Dec. f!, 1958 COCAPTAINS Jim Castaldo, left, and Andy Brunco flank Fox Lane HJ5. football coach Arnie Berg to give htm one oi several gifts presented to Berg and fads assistants by a grateful grid squad. Presentation took place at Fox Lane's first father and son football dinner held Dec. 6 at Bedford Hills. Coach Berg ac­ cepted gift with one hand while holding in the other a football that will be added to Foxes' col- elecion of sports trophies- The ball is a memento of Fox Lane's 13-7 win over Horace Greeley High in a game mat brought Foxes' five-won three-lost sea­ son to a brilliant close — Photo by Kego Fox Lane Grid Coach Has Good Word For Team, Aides Fox Lane High School's 1958 foot' ball season was described as an \extreme success\ by grid coach Arnie Berg when he spoke at the school's first father and son foot ball dinner held Dec. 6 at Rock Gate Restaurant in Bedford Hills. The coach noted that his gridders had brought the season to a satis­ factory finish by defeating Horace Greeley H S. and said the football used in that contest would be! placed in the Foxes' trophy easel with mementos of other Fox Lane triumphs. Coach Berg had high praise for members of the coach­ ing staff, each of whom he intro­ duced. He also had a complimen­ tary word for his gridders who came up with a five won, three lost record daring the Fall of 1958. The coach noted that the record would probably have been better had it not been for the fact that three first stringers were hurt in an auto accident and couldn't re­ join the team as the campaign drew to a close. Two of the acci­ dent casualties, cocaptains Ansy Brunco and Jim Castaldo, used the pos season dinner as the occasion on which to present coach Berg and his aides with gifts on behalf of the team. The father and son dinner will probably become an annual affair and similar gatherings may be held at the conclusion of other sports seasons, Fox Lane Principal Ar­ thur B. Shedd commented. He served as toastmaster, introducing aming others, Merrill Phillips, newest member of Bedford Central Dist. 2 Board of Education and Fox Lane athletic director Clyde Eidens. Lehigh University football coach Bill Leckonby was guest speaker. He foresaw some rule changes in intercollegiate football in 1959 and was outspoken in his dislike for the two-point after touchdown conver­ sion rule that went into effect on collegiate gridirons this Fall. In his remarks to the Fox Lane team, coach Leckonby observed that football is the only sport which affords \real hard\ contact. He noted that in some instances, scholastic coaches are finding it difficult to get boys interested in playing the gam$. The speaker did not confine his remarks to observations gathered on the athletic field; addressing seniors who played on the Fox Lane team, he advised that they decide upon the career they want to follow before choosing a college to at- tend- 8 A Thoughtful Christmas Gift f g You can say \Merry Christmas\ four g times a year to those \Special\ names on | your Est. | When you give your wife, children, or | others close to you the gift of a profession- g ally managed investment fund, the quarter- | ly dividend checks remind them of your | thoughtfulness throughout the year. | Your gift may be as lavish or as K modest as you wish, and there are several « ways in which purchases may be made 5 conveniently. g t Why not do part of your \Christmas | shopping\ through us?

Charles E. Pound, superintend­ ent of parks, said Dunwoodie at Yonkers and Saxon Woods at Scarsdale will permit Winter play; both clubs are restricted to West­ chester residents. Pound said the Winter golf season would com' mence immediately; the regular season ended on Nov. 30. Winter golf on a county-owned course will also come to the upcountry area .if the park commission acts favor­ ably on the recent request of two Peekskill supervisors to open near­ by Mohansic Golf Club to Winter play. No decision has been forth­ coming from the commission and golfers aren't too optimistic in included in the park commission announcement nor is it a restrict­ ed course. Gross receipts at the five cours­ es in 1958 totaled $466,119, com­ pared to a total of $409,583 the year before. The other three County courses closed until next season, are Ma­ ple Moor course in White Plains, Mohansic in Yorktown, and Sprain Lake in Yonkers. Hunting Chappaqua 4 5' Opens Slate On Tuesday Coach Carl Hall's Horace Gree­ ley High School basketball team will open up a 17-game schedule Friday when Tuckahoe visits the Chappaqua team in an afternoon fray. Greeley will play 12 Northern Westchester League games. Rye is scheduled twice in non-league games and single dates are listed with St. Mary's of Katonah, Brew­ ster and Tuckahoe. The St. Mary's date is a Saturday night affair. Dec. 19, Brewster. 7 p.m. Dec. 23. at Rye. 3:30 p.m. Jan. 6, Somers, 3:30 p m.

It opened De­ cember 7th. Better still we have some new ducks down also. Teal especially have been quite plentiful. Hunting conditions are a bit bet­ ter on salt water, however, than in the immediate vicinity. It has been just cold enough to freeze many of our local ponds and swamps. This can be an advantage, how­ ever, as it tends to concentrate the ducks in open water areas. If you know of any spring-fed pot-holes you are in business. This is the last week on squirrel and partridge for this season so don't delay, boys, if you are in­ terested in another try at this par­ ticular game. After December 14 it will be ducks and bunnies only for our shotgunners and of course the ad­ dition of deer in Westchester for the archers. Talking about deer in Westches­ ter—where are all those 200 lb. plus bucks you boys were going to bring in? They are there, of course, but to date we haven't seen them weighed in. Mario Lo Guidice is still high man with his 199 lb. buck collected via shotgun. Incidentally, Mario, we are not be­ littling that buck. It's a really fine trophy. We are just needling some of the boys that were very sure of one that is \big. as a horse\ and must weigh 400 lbs. etc. Time will tell and of course you all have until December 31 to col­ lect that big one via bow and ar­ row. As the weather gets colder we see more and more of the boys in for the various types of insula­ ted clothing. This is almost essen­ tial for the archer as most deer are taken via bow and arrow by picking a good runway and wait­ ing. This can be very cold busi­ ness if you are not dressed for it. In fact, it will take all the fun out of it in short order when you become thoroughly chilled. If you have not already done so, inves- gate the many improved types of boots- and clothing available. They will also serve the ice fish­ erman equally well. In fact, any­ one that works or plays outdoors in really cold weather. Just a reminder, bovs; it's time to check the ice fishing gear again also. You may need some new tip-ups or line or a new ice chisel. Bait buckets also have a habit of becoming unusable. Ice fishermen should also con­ sider a small sled or toboggan with a box fastened on it. This is wonderful to haul your gear from the car to your favorite spot and also provide a seat out there on the ice. Try it and you'll never go with­ out one again. INSTALL OFFICERS PORT CHESTER—Det. William Lovallo was* installed as president of the Port Chester Police Assn. at its annual dinner dance Dec. 9. Seated with him were Det. Andrew J. Telesca, vice president; Patrolman Frank Gendalia, secre­ tary; Patrolman Richard Dooley, treasurer, and Patrolman Joseph Romanello, sergeant-at-arms. Todd-Coached Team May Be Carmel Jinx Gridiron history repeated itself at Carmel High School this year when Coach Bob Stoddard's high geared Rams went unbeaten over a seven-game stretch and extend ed a three-year winning skein to 26 games. Only a 6-6 tie with John Jay High in 1957 mars an- otherwise unblemished Carmel football rec­ ord and it is possible that when the Rams are finally defeated. Jays' coach Marty Todd will be responsible for their downfall. Carmel holds a big edge in vic­ tories over Todd-coached gridders during the past decade but Todd's teams have never failed to score agains the Rams and it was a substitute halfback who tallied the tying touchdown for John Jay when the teams played to their 6-6 draw. Todd's last grid win over the now' unbeatable Putnam Coun­ ty team r was a 13-7 decision in 1955 and\'Abriarif Joyce tallied both touchdowns as Jays' prede­ cessor Katonah High, won on its own field. Todd hasn't beaten Car­ mel since-nor for that matter has anybody else — but Marty has had the satisfaction of Seeing his team score on the Carmel's \won- derboys\ every time they've met During the past season Carmel ran up a 19-7 score with Bob Muel­ ler's touchdown preserving Todd's record of getting at least one T.D. against the Rams. Carmel only yielded 13 points over the entire route this past Fall and had an offense that ripped through everything that got in its way. New Castle Tribune, Chappaqua, N. Y., December 11, 1958 |9 Mel Allen Speaks At Annual Little League Grid Banquet By TODD CASO The Poison Ivy Football League officially ended its season last Tuesday with the annual dinner. The guest of honor was sports- caster Mel Allen. The dinner start­ ed at 7:30, with a meal of spagh­ etti and meatballs, served by the boys' mothers. At 8:15 p.m., Master of Cere­ monies Dick Caso introduced the guests: Town Supervisor Arthur L. Green, Councilman Ralph Stowell, noted cartoonist John Morris, Town Recreation Director Bob Francis, Tony Sabella, one of the referees, Ted Gale, who handled the Grasshopper League, someone named Todd Caso. who snuck in, Chairman of the Recreation Com­ mission Frank Boemerman, and our guest of honor, Mel Allen. Mr. Allen started out by thank­ ing the mothers for a fine job of serving, and then kidded them about the spaghetti, which was supposed to have been re-heated from last years batch. He then told how he accidentally got into broad­ casting. After finishing law school, Me 1 was playing on a semi-pro team down south. The sports an­ nouncer at Birmingham, Ala., left to take on a new job, leaving the station with no one to broadcast football. Mel's name was suggested for the iob, and so the \Voice of the Yankees\ was born Bemg around ballplayers for many years, Mel has picked up numerous jokes and humorous stories about sports figures. He told some about Yogi Berra, Tom my Byrne and Lefty Gomez, which proved his point that a good sense of humor is necessary for relax­ ation in tight ballgames. Mel also said that there is no shortcut to anything. He is a broadcaster, and, although a good one, he is prone to mistakes, too. He pointed out that when he makes a mistake he always corrects it. Tre people don't mind. He re­ marked mat in playing sports, peo­ ple learn to respect each other for what they are. They learn teamwork in relation to others, all of which are principles of democ­ racy. A question and answer period followed, after which Mr. Green and Mr. Allen gave out the awards lo the winning Cornell team The Most Valuable Player Award p.-ver g'ven to a member of the wirning team, was given twice - to John Bogart, Princeton's hard running fullback, and to Craig i \vr\oy Dartmouth's fine quarter­ back. A brief film of the league in ac tion followed. With that, the foot­ ball season ended, and, for the nfvt few weeks, I'll be reporting eighth grade basketball back to you from my seat as official scor er in the Poison Ivy League. CHAMBER AID PLEDGED OSSINING — Directors of the Chamber of Comerce here Dec 8 promised their aid to the Village Board in setting up a com­ mittee which will stirve to bring more industry to Ossining. Dr. Charles L. Brieant, chamber pres­ ident, named a four-man commit­ tee to study the problem and rec­ ommend an additional member to bp r -nmod bv the village. \VOICE OF THE YANK­ EES,\ Mel Allen was the guest of honor at the annual Poison Ivy Football League dinner held at the Roaring Brook School in Chappaqua on Tuesday of last week. Mr. Allen is shown here presenting Most Valuable Play­ er Awards to Craig McCoy (left) and John Bogart. Craig played quarterback on Dartmouth's run- nerup team and John performed at the fullback slot for Prince­ ton. Mr. Allen also presented miniature footballs to members of the title-winning Cornell team.
