Peter St Paul floor in the first of four games booked by LaSalle officials to get the Explorers primed Icr the Eastern States Catholic tourney, beginning March 22 at Newport, R. I. .. •. There will be no preliminary and the doors will open at 3:30. All scats are reserved but Brother Justin, LaSalle athletic director, announced last night that some tickets P.:T, left and will go on sale at the door this afternoon. Coached by Prank Mazza, St. Msry's wound up its regular season wiih 18 victories and three setbacks, tn'o of the reverses being by one- point margins at the hands of the same team. The Stripers also lost to Central Catholic of Wheeling in (lie finals of trie West Virginia Catholic tournament after trailing by two points midway in the final chapter. . • ' .. . Two Losses Heartbreakers The two one-point defeat the Etrlpers suHered were heartbreakers. The Clarksburg quint led throughout both games but lost out In the last half minute of each contest when a long shot decided the issue in favor of the opponents. Forward Paul Romano and Center Charles Grant were honored on tht state and Little Ten con- :rence all-star teams. Grant is "the team's high scorer with 282 points for 22 games with Romano text on 233 tallies in the same number of battles. The Little Ten | consists of 10 public schools and i St. Mary's,-.. - - ....-.-.-. ..-••- - : • The Stripers will .line up this af- ttrnoon with Romano and Wan| street at forwards, Grant in the j pivot slot and Reger and Barnes j at the guard posts. Grant is the only: senior. P. Romano, Wanstreet, S. Romano and Philbln, the last two reserves, are sophomores [ while; the rest are juniors. Grant i and P. Romano collected 44 and 45 new experience for the veteran "SJoke." . That Slocum knows his basketball, no one will dare deny but oven the best coach In the world can't produce a winning team if he doesn't have the material. And that has happened to the LaSalle mentor more than once during his brilliant career as cage teacher. We remember back in 1940 when his LaSalie team gave Allegnny's crack shooters, who were destined to become citj> WMI and district champs that season, a close fight (34-27) on the SS. Peter & Paul floor in the first meeting. Before the return engagement, tit the Campobello gym ; Stocum told us in a confidential talk that his team didn't belong on the same floor with Allegany, but that his "players were primed for the Campers and It would take nothing short of a perfect shooting show by the Alco team to capture the second game. As it turned out. the "perfect shooting show" became, a reality. The Campers came out with all five "turrets" blazing away and when the smoke had lifted from the Camnobello floor, the Explorers were on the bottom of a 60-30 score. Although no .title was at stake for LaSalle that ycnr, Slocum had built up his team to a fervored pitch and taking it on the button by such a big margin naturally was disappointment. However, that adversity was only one of many which he has encountered during his career and last Tuesday's calamity must be considered nothing but an anti-climax. Lt. (j.g.) Williim. P:.;"Bill" Harm, former Port Hill football -coach, seems to do •everything' well -when it comes to athletics.- He gavi Ridgeley High a championship basketball team" before moving "-'to Fort- Hill where his turned out a; topnoteh club in his only- year as Sentinel tutor. And now, of a'll things, he's coach of a .water .polo team at the Navy Pre-Flight School, Iowa 1 City, home of the famous Iowa Seahawits. Hahn's 10-Able water, club recently was defeated for the regimental championship by the ll-Baker team, the final score being 5 to. 3.

He knew his Explorers were growing "stale," a misfortune which he attributes Lo too many games, but there was little left to do but 'sit back and hope-^-and talk to his boys. : . -•••.•• ;• ' , The Explorers succeeded in getting past Allegany, not by their exceedingly superior play but by their fighting spirit which enabled them to battle through the Alco defense when a couple of baskets were needed late in the game. . They played with the same spirit against Keyser but the defensive odds were stacked in Jcvor of the Tornado, with the result the Explorers were never able to reach their peak of efficiency at any stage of the game. LaSalle started practicing long before other teams in the district and -when warmer weather set In, according to Slocum, llic-y became be sluggish. But he is confident they will bounce back from the Keyser reverse and continue where they left off. . Slocum's answer should come this afternoon when the high-scoring Explorers tangle with the snappy St. Mary's Stripers of Clarksburg, \V. ,Va., on boards. If the the SS. Peter & Paul locals sucreed in stopping the Stripers, they stand a sood chance to make a good show- Ing when they defend their Eastern States Cntholic invitational tournament title at Newport, R. I. We think the terrific pressure bore down on the Explorers contributed as much as anything to their downfall at Keyser. The pressure increases with each victory during H winning streak and when It reaches the boiling point, as happened last Tuesday, something explodes. ' •-. •' -..--• LnSalle's misfortune this year parallels the disaster which struck the Allegany Campers 12 years ago. The Cnmpobello passers were also headed for a perfect season and their invasion of the Johnstown sector for the final two games of the campaign with Westmont nnd Ferndale was expected to be just a matter of adding victories to an already impressive record. *The Campers bowled over both Johnstown foes,in easy fashion here and had an average of 45 points per game when they moved Into the Flood City for the climax. In the first game against Westmont on Friday night, the Hilltop- pers held the locals to R measly nine points in winning 18 to 9. The stunning upset was such a blow to the crnck Camper quint that it almost lost to Ferndale the following night In another low-scoring duel which ended with Allegany on top 17 to 14. .

Mr. Barrow discovered Honus Wagner, barely missed managing Ty Cobb and converted Babe Ruth.
