His Eye Is on the Kimmie

His weapons are shooters and kimmies (i.e., target marbles, which used to be called "commies") rather than fast balls, chip shots or gambits, but no Sandy Koufax, Arnold Palmer or Mikhail Botvinnik ever concentrated harder on his game than would-be marbles champion Tom Senita (left) of Yonkers, N.Y. Unfortunately, Tom's shooters missed too many kimmies, so in the final round of the 37th National Marbles Tournament at Wildwood, N.J. the big silver cup ended up in the hands of a freckle-faced youngster named Ace Millen, also from Yonkers, who probably couldn't concentrate worth a darn—just shoot.
