Sparrows Point Host To Shooters

With Marine Capt. William McMillan's record 2,600 grand aggregate still an elusive target, the country's finest pistol marksmen will converge on the Sparrows Point Police Department's 162-target ranges tomorrow for the twenty-first annual Maryland State Championships.

Started in 1940 with 117 entries, the field has swelled to 500 invited sharpshooters and these top gunners from all branches of the service, law enforcement agencies and civilian enthusiasts, will fire over 250,000 rounds of ammunition before the meet closes Sunday.

The Quantico Marines swept major spoils last spring when their E. S. Sarver triggered a 2, 590-94 grand aggregate, including an 862-29 with the .45 caliber weapon. F. O. Wright and Sergt. A. Mucci, two other Quantico entries, also bagged class titles with 867-31 and 875-38 firing, respectively, with the.38 and .22.

Expected to toe the firing line this weekend are 2d Army's unorthodox shooting champion, Sergt. Bill Dunkelberger; Reservists R. T. McDonald, J. R. Alexander and Howard Phipps; City Police H. L. Bonneau, J. J. Litz and E. H. Campbell; Charles Rogler, of Perry Point, Md., and Roy Marshall, College Park, Md., expert.

MacMillan Tops Pistol Shooters

Captain W. W. MacMillan, United States Marine Corps Schools, commanded most of the attention after the first day of matches of the twenty-first annual Maryland State Pistol and Revolver championships yesterday at Sparrows Point.

Absent from competition for two years, MacMillan fired a 863-38 on a .45 caliber aggregate course, boosting speculation that he will be a strong contender in the championships.

Ware Is Open Winner

F. D. Ware, with 192-4 on .45 caliber slow fire course, was the open winner in the first match of the day, while MacMillan, with 200-16, also captured top honors in Match 2, a .45 caliber timed fire course.

In Match 3 of the championships, sponsored by the Sparrows Point Police Department Pistol and Revolver Club, Inc., A. A. Geckle registered a 196-11.

F. A. Koenig's 287-9 claimed the open title on a national match course in the day's fourth match.

Marine Team Wins

The Gold team of the Marine Corps Schools annexed team honors with a 1148-45.

Further matches are scheduled today and tomorrow. Chief Statistical Officer is Sergeant John E. Boebel, of the Sparrows Point Police Department. Harry E. Schultheis, chief of police of the Sparrows Point Police Department, is executive officer.

McMillan Again Leads Shooters

Captain W. W. McMillan, of the United States Marine Corps Schools, Quantico, Va., swept to the aggregate championship in the twenty-first annual Maryland Pistol and Revolver championship for the second straight day yesterday at Sparrows Point.

Considered on of the finest pistol shooters in the world and a member of the United States Olympic team, McMillan fired an 872-30 on a center fire course.

Today will conclude the championships and McMillan, who won the championships several years ago, seems to be a good bet to repeat.

The United States Coast Guard, of Cape May, N.J., won the team match with 1150-45 out of a possible 1200.

Sergeant L. P. Jaramillo, of Fort Meade, triumphed in the slow fire match with 190-7, while Captain Leslie Kruger, also of Fort Meade, recorded 200-8 in the timed fire match.

McMillan also won two other matches on the day, firing 295-12 out of a possible 300 on the national match course and garnering a score of 197-8 in the rapid fire.

Last year's grand aggregate champion, Sergeant E. F. Sarver, had a 294-13 to win the master class service category.

Capt. MacMillan Wins Pistol Test

Captain W. W. McMillan walked off with grand aggregate honors as three days of steady firing came to an end in the twenty-first annual Maryland Pistol and Revolver championships at Sparrows Point yesterday.

The Marine Corps sharpshooter scored a 2,608 out of a possible 2,700, and also hit the bulls-eye 105 times. MacMillan, who has qualified for the Olympic pistol team, is considered one of the world's top marksmen. He is presently stationed at the Marine Corps school in Quantico, Va.

C.W.O. A. A. Adams, of the United States Coast Guard, Cape May, N.J., turned in the most spectacular shooting in yesterday's .22-caliber competition. He turned in perfect 200 scores in both the timed fire and rapid fire tests.

However, R. Parillo, of Fort Meade, had the best aggregate score with 881 out of a possible 900. Parillo also won honors in the national match firing with his 295-12 total.
