Phillips, with three wins, lends Division 11. Fine pitching by Monaco and Holynski, and heavy sticlE'wo1-k by the en- tire team has established Phillips as the team to beat for this year's championship. The Challengers AC also retain- ed a clean slate over the week, downing Friendship House 11-2. In Division 1, Roland Wildcats beat Kirby 10-5, and Gladiators 4-3, to remain the only undefeated team in the Division. Manager Joe Amorosi of the Lackawanna Steelers Semi—Pro—- fessional Football team, announc- ed that the first practice of the year will be held on Monday, June 23, at 6 P. M.

This Saturday, June 14th, the Buffalo All Stars will provide the opposition or the Hercules team at the Stadium in a scheduled double- header, first game starting at 3:00 P. M.

Joe Michaels starred at bat for the winners. The Blue Bar team is in the City Softball League. Bill’s AC, defending champions, after losing an early game to Phil: lips, have come back strongly and are now displaying the form which enabled them to cop last year's trophy. Many observers feel that they have finally hit their stride after witnessing Bill's. blast the Texans 30-15, and turn back a strong Farmers Inn nine 6-5. A revised schedule in the Base- ball loop now includes OLV affili- ated with the league last year. In the Girl's circuit, all games for June 10, 12, 17 and 24 have been postponed because of Regent's examinations and graduation.
