That's a lot!

Clay County, West Virginia Courthouse (retired)
 On January 26, 1960 a young Danny Heater was a student athlete at Brunsville High School in Braxton County, West Virginia.  That night they played a basketball game against Widen High School in Clay County.
  It was, as it turned out, historic.  Young Mr. Heater scored 135 points!  He also had high numbers of rebounds, free throws and the rest.  While not an all-level record, that's 138 points in a college game, it must be a high school record.
  Note follows.
A few days ago I covered the Japanese soldier who hadn't surrendered.  My good friend, Wilbur, out in North Dakota tells me he was on Guam at the time this man was caught stealing a chicken.  That of course led to the incidents in the story.  Wilbur had an office in the Air Terminal and was present when the man was brought in.
