Duffy Stars For Colgate In Tourney Bob Duffy of Katonah, eight- een-vear-ol^ captain of the Colgate Universitv freshman basketball team, matched former All-Ameri car schoolboy star Willie Hall point-for-point when they stole the show last week at West Point's annual Invitational Freshman Bas ketbnl Tourr.ment. Both tallied 49 points, with Duffy getting 31 as the Red Raider* opened with a vicroiy over Cadet Plebes. It was Colgate's first acceptance of a bid to compete in the holiday cage attraction and Duffy led his teammates into it with 'a string of four consecutive'wins. They re­ mained unbeaten until Hall and his St. John's University colleag ues took them into camp in the title lest. Du*fy starred as Colgate stopped h'»si: Army on Dec. 29 in their first tournament start and he added 18 points against St. John's. He and Hall, formerly of undefeated Arch­ bishop Molloy High School of New York City, shared the spotlight in the finale «>n Dec. 30. Hall won All-American designation as a schoolboy drbbler. Duffy was an A'l-Cjunty player while attending John Jav H'gh School and also wor designation as All Ivy League and All-Met. player when he at­ tend! HacHey School after leav­ ing St. Mary's High where he phyed under the supervision of his father who was then Gael coach. Duffy, a six-footer, is back-court man with the Raiders but that has not prevented him from setting the pace with a 26 point scoring aver­ age for the season. The Colgate captain hails from a familv of outstanding basketball players; h's father, Joseph Duffy Jr., was a Katonah H. S. star and his fifteen-vear-old brother, Richie, is pacesetter at John Jay High, where he is a sophomore. by C. J. Daura Another year has rolled around since our last column. Most of our hunting season has passed into record also. Thursday, Jan. 8, will mark the last of the duck season and that will leave rabbits only for hunters. These tasty little rascals are still fair game until the end of Feburary and are at their best from now on as a table delicacy. If rabbits alone are not suffi­ cient incentive to spend some time in the field, try vermin shooting It's good practice and real con­ servation work to boot. Many lo­ cal types of vermin will each kill many times more game in a sea son than a good hunter and, in addition, do not observe any clos­ ed season. We have closed our game sea­ sons to conserve enough breeding stock for next season to insure an adequate supply of game next Fall. A too large supply of preda­ tory animals and birds could de­ feat our efforts. They must be kept under control. This is a job for all of us as our already overworked Conservation Department cannot even make a dent in this work. Think it over, boys. If you want good hunting next year do your share of vermin control also. You are probably wondering at this point about the Halstead- Daum Big Deer Contest. Who won and with what. Dec. 31 saw the end of the las remaining deer season in this area. This left Mario Lo Guidice o Mt. Kisco in the lead with his 199 pound shotgun-killed buck. This was a very fine deer in top condi tion and, with exception of a 194 pound buck, also weighed in by a Mt. Kisco man—James C. Avery of Kisco Park—did not have much close competition. Young & Halstead's Locker Plant informs us that of 100 or more deer they processed no oth­ ers weighed over 180 pounds com pletely dressed out. This proves one point at least, boys, that those 200-pound-plus bucks are not as plentiful as many of us thought They do occur, of course, but not very frequently and not here this year. Congratulations, Mario, and you are now $50 richer in addition to having a very fine trophy and plenty of venison. Ice fishing is good all over, boys. Peter Chiola and Bert Brugger, Jr. of Mt. Kisco showed a nice catch of seven pickerel, some perch and a large catfish all tak­ en on shiners. Charles H. Anderson of Golden's Bridge showed a four-pound, 5-oz pickerel from Muscoot in very fine condition. This fish was 26y 2 inches long with a 10V2 inch girth, caught on a salt water killie. Right behind with 13 points was Ed Orser, while Bogart had eight Princeton got back in the win column at the expense of Yale, who have now dropped two in a row. Princeton ran up an early lead and was never headed as they won fairly easily 30-20. Roger Kapauff led everyone in the game with 14 points, and Bruce Campbell was not far behind with 10. The high point man for Yale was Mac Maloney, who put in six points. The third game was the closest of the day with Columbia and Nel son Jantzen managing to pull out a close 28-21 win. Dartmouth played well again performing like a unit while Jant­ zen carried the brunt of Colum­ bia's attack. The failure of Dart­ mouth's high scorer Pete Walsh to rack up more than two points hurt Dartmouth and probably losf the game for them. Jantzen, as usual, wound up the leading poim maker with 19. High man for Dartmouth was Brent * Cleland with nine. Cleland played wel today, and with a little help from Walsh, would have made the game a lot closer. Another Dartmouth man who played a good game was Mike Hall, who scrapped well while scoring five points. FROM THE SIDELINES: Cornell lost a big man when Allan Duncan fouled out in the third quarter in their game with Harvard. . . Tim Lynch proved to be a welcome addition to the Columbia team, taking some 0: the ball handling chores\ away from Jantzen. . .

The game opened the League season for both clubs. Greeley moved out to a 10-4 first period lead saw it dwindle to 21-18 at the half, and even saw its mar­ gin of superiority vanish briefly in the third quarter as a Homer Stevens jump shot settled in the Somers basket. The Quakers are now 4-1 on the season. Somers is 3-2.

John Keel was the big star for the winners with 24 points. The visitors jumped off to an early lead and were never headed. It was 43-19 at the half. The high scorer for Mount Kisco was John Rookwood with 14 points. Mount Kisco is now 1-2 in the loop while New Rochelle is 2-1 The scoring: NEW ROCHELLE Iona Captures Boy's Club Cage Event Iona Grammar School hoopers came out of New Rochelle to place first in Mount Kisco Boy's Club Invitational Holiday Junior Basket­ ball Tournament when that inau­ gural event drew to a close last week at the Boy's Club gymnasi­ um. Norman Gerber, the club's athletic director, said the tourney will become an annual feature here during the holiday reason. Iona captured the championship by shading St. Mary's School of Ridgefield 40-39 in the finals of the round-robin event. The win­ ners had a 27-22 half-time advan­ tage. In advancing to the finals, the champions disposed of third place Mount Kisco Boy's Club 44-39 and beat Armonk 42-5. The latter were also held to five points by St Mary's who ran up 45 to get off to an impressive start. Boy's Club got its only tourna­ ment triumph at Armonk's expense and the score of that game was 53-13; the clubbers were less for­ tunate when they tangled with St. Mary's and lost 53-44.

Tom Murray hit the target three times and generated most of the spark as Mount Kisco Soccer Club celebrated the arrival of a New Year by shaking off a prolonged losing streak with an easy 7-3 win over Mamaroneck S. C. on Jan. 4 at Leonard Park. The hard frozen ground made the game a fast one but icy spots on the field also made running risky and a chill wind that swept across the grounds added to the discomfort of spectators as well as contestants. About the only thing that generated any heat was the aggressive play of Murray who, at inside right, who scored Kisco's first goal at the eight minute mark and added two more in the second half. Mount Kisco took a 3-1 lead into the last period after Harold Nick- son tallied a penalty shot and Har­ ry Nielson contributed another bell-ringer. Murray scored Kisco's fourth goal in the first 10 minutes of the last half. Eric Morley fig­ ured in two Kisco goals. He pass­ ed to Murray for the latter's third score and later got a goal of his own after taking a pass from Jim CaddeU. Mount Kisco and Tuckahoe hoot­ ers have a league date at Tucka­ hoe on Jan. 11. The local team will leave from the Kisco Legion building at 12:45 p.m. Fox Lane High outlasted John Jay, 53-43, here Tuesday after noon in a rough and tough basket­ ball game. It was the Northern Westchester League opener for both teams. Pre-season predictions listed these two as the Yearns to beat in ;he league race. This is still the case, although Fox Lane, with an all-veteran crew, is now in the driver's seat. Coach Bob Boissy's Cross River team had to overcome an early nine-point deficit, but finally ral­ lied to tie at 29-29 with three min­ utes to go in the third peribd. The two teams battled—and that is just the word for it .n fairly even erms over the next eight minutes. With three minutes to go Fox Lane ed, 41-40, but a three-point play by George Clark and a tap-in by Sean Sgrulletta boosted the mar­ gin to six and the Foxes were home free. Foxes Streak Fox Lane rait nine -straight points over the * ~.t four minutes of the first period to give Coach Clyde Eidens a comfortable lead of 17-8.« Sgruietta had five of the Hawks Upset NatsInB.C. Basketball Nats were still at the head of Mount Kisco Boy's Club Young Adult League basketball standings when the New Year arrived but they were no longer an unbeaten club, having been upset 69-66 by fourth place Hawks on Dec. 23; they rebounded a week later with a tight 68-66 win over runner-up Eagles to end 1958 with seven vic­ tories, one defeat and a comfort­ able three-game lead. Neil Diterichs has been instru­ mental in keeping Nats on top and he closed the year with 138 points, the second best accumula­ tion credited any Young Adult Leaguer. He and the loop's top man, MeYt Gatto with 146 points, locked horns in the Nats-Hawks match and Gatto, long a basket­ ball star here, dished out more than the leaders could take. In another Dec. 23 contest, Pis­ tons outpointed Eagles 63-61. On Dec. 30, Hawks used Gatto's scor­ ing to beat Pistons 47-44 while Nats were shading Eagles. Boy's Club Intermediates won a 51r32 verdict from Armonk in their last showing of 1958 and Gene Franzese was pacemaker with 13 points. Here's how Young Adult League teams ranked at year's end: Nats, 7-1; Pistons, 4-4; Eagles 3-5; Hawks, 2-6. WILDCATS SLUMPED The last winning season for the University of New Hampshire came in 1954 when the Wildcats compiled a 7-1 record.

Runnerup Scraperettes also hit the winning column with a 3-1 de­ cision over bottom place Gallagh ers.

The first game pitted Harvard against Yale. From the opening jump on, Harvard's two fine play­ ers, Ed Orser and Kent DeFelice dominated play with their keen shooting and good all-around play. Harvard led 10-3 at the quarter and 21-8 at halftime, with Orser and Defence garnering all but two of the team's 21 points- Harvard continued to pour it on in the second half, piling up 36 points while Yale could only mus­ ter 18. _ Orser tallied 16 markers in a sparkling performance, while De­ Felice, although held scoreless in the second half, came up with nine. The high scorer for Yale was little Mac Maloney who was up against rough competition, but still man­ aged to chaulk-up seven points. In the second game it was Dart­ mouth against Princeton. Last week in the practice game, Prince­ ton took care of Dartmouth hand­ ily, winning 43-24. Saturday it was a different story as the Dartmouth five got off to a quick start and moved in the lead at the end of the first stanza 11-6. Dartmouth guard Pete Walsh led the fired-up squad in the first period with sev­ en tallies. The early lead seemed to give the Dartmouth squad the incentive to keep up their fine play and win 26-22. Walsh finished with a respectable 13 points. He received able assistance from Tom Leanord with seven points and Bob Borman with six. High Scoring hon­ ors for Princeton went to Bruce Campbell and Roger Kapauff, both with six points. The third contest, between Cor­ nell and Columbia, was postponed to three o'clock in the afternoon due to the absence of some of the boys. This game proved to be .the closest and most exciting of the Car Deaths Rise In December, ? 58 PercentageDrops Seven automobile deaths in Westchester in December com­ pared with 5 in November and were more than double the 3 of December 1957. Even though the toll went -up, the average of deaths for the month of k December dropped from 9.37 in 24 years of record keeping to 9:28 in 25 years. The toll for the year was 72 fatalities, compared with 68 in 1957. Yet the monthly average was cut from 6.79 deaths in 24 years to 6.76 in 25 years. Detailed statistics on 2,030 au­ tomobile deaths provide the fig­ ures. day. .The two teams ran neck and neck, with either team having the chance to win until the fourth quar­ ter when Columbia outscored Cor­ nell to win 26-20. High scorer for Columbia, and! for the day, was Nelson Jantzen. The sharp-shooting Jantzen kept his team in the running when Cor­ nell pulled out to an early lead, and eventually helped his team to come from behind to win, scoring 20 points. Oden Oak and Dave Haight were high point men for Cornell, each dunking six points* From the Sidelines I was surprised at the fine show­ ing of the Dartmouth team after their poor performance of the week before. If they keep up the good work, they will be up near the top of the league this year. Harvard boasts two of the tallest men in the league in Ed Orser and \Man Mountain\ Brennan. Next week's schedule is: Harvard - Cornell, Princeton - Yale, and Columbia- Dartmouth.
