WNC BOWLERS HOLD THEIR OWN
Our W.N.C. Team bowlers are holding their
own in the Western Carolina bowling league —
making every effort possible to retain their pos
session of the league’s crown. Since November
4th, the team has won seven of twelve games
bowled to move from third place to second place
in the standings, Vl of a game behind the leading
Champion Y team.
It is hard for Gutter Gus to describe the com
petition that our teams meet in these matches, for
the pressure and tension is always predominate
when your team is among the top contenders.
Cur team is to be commended for their fine
work and Gutter Gus urges you to drop by some
Tuesday night and see these fellows in action.
Your presence will be appreciated and no doubt
inspiring to our tenm.
Fancy bowling shirts are the
ddight of any bowling team.
Three of our bowling teams
are sporting their ”trade
marks”, designed by Echo Art
Editor Jack Morgan, on the
back of their shirts. Any
teams interested in obtaining
especially designed shirts
should contact the league
secretary for information.
