All three coaches realize that the game today requires more players; that is. as Hannum puts it, "the ideal situation would be to alternate two full teams to offset the race-track developments." .As to the change in the game itself. Frof Davies points out: "We coaches don't really understand the game as it is today. We don't know good from bad technique. Or what to do under changing circumstances. It is merely a matter of trial and error, and will perhaps take a couple of years for us to perfect the correct technique." i And this is much the way it has been the past 10 years. For example, back in 1932. following adoption of the 10-second rule requiring the ball be advanced past the middle of the floor in the prescribed amount of time and be kept in play in the offensive zone until a score was made, or the ball changed hands there V was a storm of protest.

MOCK -: One of the last acts which former Governor George H. Earle performed before he left office was to award the Meritorious Service Medal of Pen nsylvania to a distinguished sports-m a n , Judge G r o v e r C. Ladner. of Phi ladelphia. pr es i dent of the Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs. The citation, , which accom- Mr. Meek panied the honor bestowed upon the leader of Pennsylvania's o r g a n i zed sportsmen, read as follows: - "WHEREAS, Judge Grover C. Ladner, through his sincere and untiring efforts at all times has worked to conserve wildlife in Fennsvlvania. and - " WHEREAS, as a result of this Vork Pennsylvania sportsmen owe a deep debt of gratitude to Judge Ladner. - "THEREFORE. I, George H. Earle. Governor of Pennsylvania, hereby cite Judge Grover C. Ladner because of his devotion to this cause for a Meritorious Service Medal of the State of Pennsylvania. (Signed GEORGE H. EARLE," f. , . " Governor." a the bestowance of this honor, it Tra5 accepted by JUSge Lafiner trith th realization that it was j in reality designating him as the svmooi ior tne hundreds of real sportsmen and conservationists who, according to Judge Ladner, have worked just as long and just as hard as he has for the cause. It was in that spirit that it was accepted by the head of the Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs. To the sportsmen at large, the distinction is one particularly of gratification, for at last the sportsman and the conservationist has the recognition due for his public-spirited service. It is seldom that the average citizen realizes what an influence the sportsman exerts in his capacity as a hunter and fisherman. Without going into detail as to the aesthetic beauty which his contributions have created through the presence of wildlife in the woods and fields and the healthful recreation provided, there are numerous instances where his presence plays a vital part in the everyday existence of many a citizen. To the residents in the big game sections, he is the "mortgage lifter," and many a home has been freed of its debt. To the local business folk, he is a godsend. It is his contributions to the game fund which pays for the protection of the song and insectivorous birds, the presence of which, to the rural dwellers, cannot be estimated in dollars and cents. Many thousands of dollars find their way to the various county treasurers' offices because of his possessing lands - which - otherwise would produce little or no revenue. For many years,' when honors such as bestowed upon Judge Ladner were distributed, it usually meant the singling out of educators, doctors and members of other professions. Recognition has been given to merchant princes, philanthropists, musicians, artists and the like, but it remained for a sportsman to realize that those who fieht for and defend the woods, the waters .and the wildlife of the state and ,nation are also serving a great public interest and are as deserving of the recognition long given others. Former Governor Earle deserves credit not only for his realization of this fact, but also for acting upon it. Never before has the sportsman been given such recognition as has been enjoyed during the past four years .. . and there is no reason why this status will not be continued. The new administration's platform contained a most progressive plank, for it not only promised to "go along" with the sportsmen to the fullest extent of their desires, but it also placed a monetary value on hunting and fishing as an industry, saying: "We recognize the value in dollars of hunting and fishing. Fifty millions of dollars expended in these lines of sport is very properly regarded by Gov. Arthur James and the Republican Party as a highly important contribution to the economic welfare of Pennsylvania and its people." Four years hence, we hope, will find Governor Arthur James similarly situated. ron put Syracuse abreast with a goal in the final minute of the second session, and Bill Cunningham anu otan eianowskv cl nrhprf tory for the Stars with counters in wit tiiira.

After five minutes of fur mer piay Mackerovich drove the ball like a bullet from 20 yards to tie the count. Another five min-uates elasped with Indianola press ing nam in tne Fagan goalmouth, from where Stan Kevich tallied the winning count. Weather also caused a freakish turn at South Park, where Curry was apparently well on its way to the West Penn Senior semi-finals with a 2-0 halftime lead over Cecil; Bruni and Supinsky scoring. But the second half was a nightmare for the South Parkers when M. Deliere counted twice, and Gossett and Jules Preaux with singles to make the count 4-2 Cecil.
