Gale Selig Competes in Go Kart Race
When the Attleboro Star Dusters return to the First National parking space in Buzzards Bay Monday afternoon, their two top drivers will compete in a match race for club honors.
Highlight of the Go Kart races held Sunday afternoon at the First National Store parking lot In Buzzards Bay, as far as Bourne residents were concerned, were the Powder Puff races in which there were scheduled races for both Junior and senior powder puffers. The first race was set for the seniors and included five girls from the Attleboro Star Dusters club, and six local girls; Mrs. Henry Girard, Mrs. Sally Hunt, Mrs. Thomas Masterson Jr., Mrs. Edward Tamaglnl, Mrs. Augustus F. Wagner and Miss Ruth Tucy.
Veteran drivers, the Star Dusters, took the lead but got Into a jam up on a turn which brought them to a standstill. Before they could straighten up and get back into the race, the local girls all went by in good shape.
Winners were Miss Tucy in second place; Mrs. Masterson, Mrs. Tamagini, Mrs. Hunt and Mrs. Girard sixth. Mrs. Girard, who had trouble with her car, still came in ahead of the Star Dusters, and great was the excitement in the Bourne ranks.
Following the first of these races, a month ago, the mechanics at Charlie Wallace's garage got busy and made up a couple of go karts. The Bourne women did a little practicing in back of the garage Wednesdays at noon time and Saturday. At least they all had the "feel" of the little cars before they started.
Next item of general Interest was the race for the Junior Puffers Joyce Reynolds, Gail Selig, Carolyn Mathews, Charyn Nowling, Sandy, Judy and Dlane McKenzie and Jean Lamborghini competed.
All are Girl Scouts who have been faithful In attendance at the races and have done the collecting each week, proceeds of which have gone to the various Scout troops and 4-H clubs.
Star Dusters gallantly offered their Go Karts, helmets and leather Jackets and the very excited girls took off. They had not practiced and only Jean Lamborghini has had driving instruction and has a license.
The girls, aged from 14 to 17, drove somewhat cautiously and had no accidents of any kind.
Winner was Jean Lamborghini with Carolyn Mathews in second place and Gall Selig in third.
