Hot Shot Sammy Sparks
N. C. State's Case Aces
By ROBERT L. MOORE
RALEIGH, ? When it comes to
top college basketball stars, Ever
ette Case, the greying little man
who coaches North Carolina
State's cage forces, will take Sam
my Ranzino. Ranzino is a six-loot,
one-inch black - haired Italian
American forward from Gary, Ind.
who pours in the points for Case's
"Ranzino is undoubtedly
one of the cleverest ballhandlers
and most accurate shots in the
game today." Case says, "He
has gone the distance for our
team iu many games, and he can
always be counted on to play his
"I don't think I've ever seen a
better shot, and I'm certain there
are very few players in the coun
try today who can match his ov
erall ability to do almost any
thing on the basketball court.
"He's a good defensive per
former and is an uncanny judge
of rebounds which enables him j
to gain possession of the ball ov- ,
er taller opponents. He's a hust- 1
ler from the word 'go'.
It isn't any wonder Case raves ;
over eagle-eye Sammy. Labled j
"The Eye" by his teammates Ran j
zino seems to be at his best when !
the opposition is toughest.
State's game with San Francis
co University is an example. The
Dons were 1949 National lnvita
tional Tournament champions.
Sure. - shot Sammy fired away 17
times from the field. He connec
ted on 10. He stepped to the tree
throw eight times and made every
Sammy's total of 28 eight points
was the highest individual score
ever tallied against the California
One of his scaring specialties
is a one-arm push shot. But Ran
2ino is more than a scorer. Case
quickly explains. He's a play-mak
er deluxe. His ball stealing antics
keep the customers in an uproar.
His twibting, turning dribble has
eau^hl more than one opponent
off guard and enabled Ranzino
to get through the defenders for
one of his easy layups.
A year ago, Ranzino led the
Wolfpack team in scoring with
381 points. At the rate he's go
ing this season, he may easily
break Captain Dick Dickey's 1948
scoring mark for a North Caro
lina State player of 451 points.
In fact, he has an eye set on he
coming the first North Carolina
Hunts 500 Points
scorer since the University of
North Carolina's George (ila
mack hit the 500 mark.
Case, a shrewd judge of basket
hall talent, made up his mind three
years ago that Ranzino was one
of the best players he'd ever seen.
: Case selected Ranzino out of nearly
i 200 boys who attended one of his
| basketball clinics in Indiana in
1947. Now Sammy's a junior.
"Ranzino is headed for big
things," Case concludes.

ning to do extensive work, using
the census cards as their guide.
Some of the churches are planning
a "Fishermen's Club," an evangel
istic men's club, or to organize
a special visitation program hav
ing ministers and laymen visiting
together. It is pointed out that this
is the system that Jesus used, and
it has proved successfuJ in thous
ands of churches across America.
There were certain difficulties
encountered in the census. Work
ers untrained, although they did
a splendid job. But perhaps be
cause 01 the iack of skilled work
ers, the figures are not as com
plete as they otherwise would be.
In most cases when neither mem
bership nor specific preference
was given, preference was shown
on the census as being the same

In the problem of the churches
of the Baptist or Methodist faith,
it is |K)ssible that some were coun
ted by the First Methodist church
when they were members of the
Franklin Memorial Methodist
rhurch and that there were some
people in the Missionary Baptist
statistics actually belonging to the
Primitive Baptist church, etc.
Figures in the table include the
census taken of the Crab Point
section the causeways leading to
Beaufort and Atlantic Beach, and
the Camp Glenn section. The cen
sus is not conclusive for the above
The census shows the tremend
ous task of the church today.
Many of our people are unchurch
ed. Still others have grown inac
tive through the years, Many
homes showed no active religious
faith at all. Many of our children
are not being trained in the Sun
day School and church.
