Characters

Synopsis
Stuart can no longer work on the Physics Club's model rockets, because basketball is taking up all his time. The coach wants the team to feed Flagpole the ball, so that he can make the shot. The other players are unhappy and they start to shun him. Flagpole accidently elbows an opposing player in the head. The other players think it was deliberate, so they stomp on his feet and pull his racoon cap off. His teammates come to his rescue and a fight breaks out on both sides. Fr. Carroll stops the game and concedes the loss. The other coach feels equally to blame and won't accept their loss.

Indexer Notes

Max Pine was an alias of Frank Moss, per 2006 interview with Frank Borth: "You can find out in reading your things he also uses the word Max Pine as a substitute for him because he didn't want them to think he was writing everything in the place..." http://cuislandora.wrlc.org/islandora/object/cuislandora%3A40849

The story of St. Stanislaus, who was born to noble Polish parents in 1030. He became Bishop of Czenborg and fought with Boleslaw II, the King of Poland at the time. The King was a great warrior, but a cruel and dishonest man who stole land from The Church and would arrange to have homes pillaged, while nobles were away guarding the frontiers.

Characters
Johann Sebastian Bach; Georg Bohm; Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Synopsis
The story of Bach, the most powerful influence in the music of the western world. He was born in Eisenach, Germany in 1685. Bach lived to see his music become considered old-fashioned. Even his sons scorned his work. After his death, his music became even more unpopular and his son Philipp Emanuel's work was considered more exciting. Today, the music of Bach's sons is considered old-fashioned and Bach's is considered among the greatest in the world. In the 1780's, some of Bach's work fell into the hands of Mozart, who loved it.
