POLYGONS COP CITY CHAMPIONSHIP Congratulations!!! Our Bowling Team came through Thursday night by defeating the Catholic Club three staight games in a scheduled five game match to capture the Portsmouth Duck Pin Association Championship. Total scores for the three games: CATHOLIC CLUB 1371--POLYGON CLUB 1446. After eight years of competition in sports of various nature, The Polygon Club has finally broken the ice by winning a trophy that anyone would be proud to own. Let's see if we can't decorate our own club room with a dozen more. This column recommends a cote of thanks to little "Peggy" Vaughan for her support in the gallery every night during the Championship Games.

Let's boost our home town. The only thing that can't be done well in the city of Portsmouth is a rare steak.

The object of the Polygon Club is to encourage and promote service, health, fellowship, education and progress among the members and in the community in an atmosphere of Christian living.
