Basketball Race
| Casual Company once again
moved to the front of the Post
Basketball League, by squeezing
out a narrow 40-38 decision over
Co. C 58 Bn. this week. Casual
thus became co-leader with idle
A-56 with nine wins and one de­
feat and set the stage for the
crucial Casual-Service b a t t l e
Monday. Service likewise has
suffered a lone setback.
Last week’s sextet of one-
blemish-apiece teams was cut to
five as Civilian Personnel upset
Supply Co. 46-24. Supply’s usual­
ly dependable offense nad a dis­
mal time of it, going sixteen full
minutes in the second canto
! without scoring, after trailing
at half 20-16. League’s No. 1
scorer, Bob Lipe, felt the effect;
the 8 points Lipe managed was
his low mark for the campaign.
Other scores last week includ­
ed B-58, 31 vs. C-51, 23; B-58, 32,
Company A, 56th Bn. led the post basketball league with nine wins and one loss before the team vs. A 58, 31; Gp. Of., 38 vs.

Ramblings
By Pvt. Klthu "Bud" Hurwitz
The 56th Battalion left the
Post basketball league last week
to start on their three week prob­
lem, after compiling the best
record for a single battalion
since the league's formation.—
A (9 -l), B(6-l>, C(4 5) — for a
grand total of 19 wins against
but seven losses. Of course the
crowning glory was A's triumph
over Service which perched Lt.
Tony Krodrico’s orange and
black at the top of the league.
