WHITE FALCON Saturday, January 21, 1961 Top Eight Teams to Seek Crown In Double Elimination Tourney The chips will be down for basketballers Jan. 30 when^ the top eight teams play in the double elimination tourney for the base championship at 6 p.m. in the Field House. Air Forces Iceland, the league®" champions, will pit a flawless rec- ord in 24 outings; but tourneys of this kind are full of surprises. The 1971st AACS, league runner- up, goes into the tournament with a 21-3 skein. The top contenders are not forgetting the upsets scored during the season. AFI lost Bill Rusnak, one of their high scorers, but Trapp has been filling the gap, along with others on the champions' roster. Figure that the coaches will be feeding those thumpers that can sink'em in. Then the picture changes somewhat and puts teams on a plane. In this week's tabula- tions, Salyers of AACS has dump- ed in 65 points; Martin of the 57th Fighter Squadron, and "Wil- son of Transportation have scored 27 each; not to forget McDonald of Air Base Squadron who has netted 31 points. In the double figure scoring, the roster includes Damon of Naval Security Group, but his team won't pull up to the first- eight-eligible bracket; Frey of AFI; Tinglehoff, also of NSGp; Moore of CAMRON; Morris of Civil Engineers, but they are out of the participants bracket; Olson of the Hospital, and Johns of Supply, Lyons of Transportation, Trapp of AFI, plus many others. So the nets should be swinging in that tourney. Last Tuesday, the 57th FIS beat Transportation 47-32; CAM- RON over Civil Engineers 45-16; AFI defeated NSGp 53-23: Wed- nesday — AACS-ABRON 67-40; CAMRON-IKF 37-21; 57th-CE 67-28; Hospital-Transportation 46-38; AFI-Rockville 46-38; AA- CS-NSGp 53-33; Hospital-Supply 30-20; AFI-Transportation 52-45; and AACS-Rockville 50-40; NAF received a forfeit from CE. Standings as of Jan. 16. Hq. AFI ......... 24 0 AACS ........... 21 3 BX to Use Slips To Fill Needs Want a special brand of tooth- paste? Does Channel No. 5 leave you cold? The Base Exchange is now looking for customers who are willing to say what they want. Capt. Ralph C. Donnelly, Ex- change Officer, has started a drive to try to get what people want. He explained that the Ex- change buyers did not have suf- ficient information at the pre- sent time to indicate, for ex- ample, whether people preferred one type of shaving cream to another. The only way that they can know is for people to indi- cate their preferences by the use of the "Want" slips that are now available in the BX. The "Want" slips are then routed to the buyers who place orders by known brands or types of merchandise rather than an educated guess. Capt. Donnelly said that it normally takes about 90 days for orders to be processed and goods received so the sooner the "wants" are made known the quicker the merchandise would appear on the shelves. So, if you don't see it — ask for it!

Other policy changes outlined in the message included required attendance of all officers monthly at Commander's Call programs and a statement that commanders would be expected to conduct Commander's Call in person. Prior to the receipt of this message, the monthly feature film was an optional item on the CC agenda. This added impetus from the Air Force Chief of Staff apparently stemmed from a recent AF wide survey that indi- cate that both officers and air- men of all grades were poorly informed as to where the Air Force stands and what it stands for. The Air Force has placed heavy emphasis on the Commander's Call program feeling that its members must have sufficient knowledge about their service to be able to effectively represent its policies, doctrine and view- points in either a U.S.A. or for- eign community. MATS Commander, General Kelly, has, on numerous occasions, voiced his support of the vital objectives of this program.

Restaurant Owner Establishes Plan to Honor Best Airmen Brynjolfur Brynjolfsson this week set a first for Iceland, at the same time adding another en- ticing incentive to the Airman and Sailor of the Month Program at Keflavik International Airport. Brynjolfsson treated the Decemb- er Seaman and Airman of the Month and their competitors to a banquet at his restaurant, the Holl in Reykjavik. A seaman for many years, Brynjolfsson will entertain win- ners at the squadron and base level in the future. Gisli Gud- mundsson of the U.S. Information Service will act as coordinator of the program. It will include the dinner, a tour of the National Museum, a free-time shopping period and a sightseeing tour on the town. A2C Thomas D. Thorne of the Civil Engineer Squadron and SN Darriel A. Mammen of the Naval Air Facility led the group of 15 which Brynjolfsson honored . Thorne was selected Keflavik Airport Airman of the Month. A native of Oklahoma City, Thorne graduated from Putnam City High. His favorite pastime is raising beagle hounds and live- stock. The son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Thorne, he was last sta- tioned at Vandenburg AFB, Calif. Seaman Mammen, a cook, top- ped his shipmates in the NAF competition for December. He was born in Springfield, 111., and is a newcomer in the Navy ranks after having completed training at the U.S. Navy Training Center in Bainbridge, Md. A son of Mrs. Lena Mammen, Taylorville ,and Carl Mammen of Joliet, 111., Mammen graduated from Taylorville High in Taylor- ville. At Taylorvile High Mam- men played basketball and base- ball for three years. He is married to the former Miss Shelba Smith who is residing at 906 College, Greenfield, 111. The best seaman and airman of Keflavik and their companions were enthusiastic about Brynjolf- sson's 'generous' gesture and ex- pressed enjoyment of the fine food and cordial treatment ex- tended. They wholeheartedly indorsed the program as a means of know- ing Iceland and its people. John Lovezzola, 30452, Westover AFB, Mass. Luther B. Hancock, 64350A, Kirt- land AFB, N. Mex.

For Maryetta, who has played top theaters and night clubs coast-to-coast, this is the eighth overseas tour for USO Shows. "Rhythm Revels," like all live entertainment provided for the armed forces under the auspices of USO, is made possible by con- tributions to United Funds, Com- munity Chest and other voluntary fund-raising campaigns. Stop Fully Wherever a stop sign has been posted, drivers must uncondition- ally come to a full stop. When taking off from this point, driv- ers will exercise extreme caution and yield the right of way to traffic from both sides, irrespec- tive of the fact as to whether or not this happens to be a main road.
