Marines, Navy Spark Meet

Make Clean Sweep In Shooting Meet

A task force of Marines and U.S. Navy super shooters from Quantico, Va., made a clean sweep of the Sixth Annual North Carolina Pistol and Revolver Championship matches held yesterday at the Durham Pistol and Rifle Club.

Firing between occasional showers, the record number of 84 shooters was paced by Staff Sgt. W. W. McMillan, who won the 45 caliber aggregate with 854 out of a possible 900, and Chief Petty Officer Leonard Rizzolla, who took the center fire aggregate with 871 out of 900.

The master shooters of the Navy and Marine teams from Quantico, several of whom are now trying out for the U. S. Olympic team, won all the top positions in the 45 caliber and center fire events.

The first annual Larkin S. Woods Memorial Match and the 22 caliber events were to start today at 8 a.m. with a large crowd of shooters expected from all over the South.

Yesterday's events drew nationally known gunmen from as far away as New Mexico, Michigan, San Francisco, San Diego and Atlanta. There were five Marine teams and two Navy teams as well as teams from Kinston, Camp Lejeune, Washington, D.C., Virginia Highway Patrol, North Carolina Highway Patrol and teams from the host Durham Club.
