Sadowskr s 35 Points Put Rebels in Series NEW YORK, March 13 (JP). Ed Sadowski, the former Seton Hall College star who started off the Basketball Association of America's first season as playing coach of the Toronto Huskies and wounvi up with the Cleveland Rebels, was responsible today for sparking the Rebels to a Western Division playoff berth. Sadowski left Toronto early In the season after expressing dissatisfaction with the management over salary terms. Together with such stars as Mel Riebe and Kenny Sailors, he lifted the Rebels up to a point where they now have an even split in their 52 games played to date. Sadowski poured in 35 points last night as Cleveland edged Detroit, 89-81, to gain third place behind Chicago and St. Louis, Sadowski sank 11 field goals and 13 of 17 free throws to run his total for 45 games to 697.

Entries in all weight classes for the State Amateur Wrestling Championships to be held this Saturday are pouring in, according to Bernard M. Nobis who is chairman of the tournament committee. Among the entries received is one from William Foraker who, although only 16, is expected to put up a good battle for the 175-pound cham pionship. Ducky Taylor, another 16-year-old, Is entered in the 165-pound class. In the heavyweight class only one entry has thus far been received and that is from Edward Regenauer who has wrestled in three dual meets representing the Wilmington Y. M. C. A. and has been defeated only once. An entry of interest to Delaware- ans in the 155-pound class is that received from one of the wrestling coaches at St. Andrew's School in Middletown. He is Chester E. Baum, Jr., who is & 28-year-old member of the faculty of that school. Al though he was an outstanding wrestler in college it is expected that his endurance will be severely tested by some of the younger boys who are entered. Perhaps the outstanding" participant in this first state wide grap pling tournament for amateurs is that of Bill Laurelli, 28-year-old World War II veteran, who is now an instructor at the Veterans' Facil ity at Perrv Point, Md. Laurelli is a graduate of the University of Dela ware where he was the originator, captain and star of the WTestling team. He has held many titles, the most recent ones being in 1942 when he was the winner of the Middle Atlantic 155-pound championship and in 1943 when he won the 155-pound title in the Mason-Dixon Intercollegiate Conference, as a member of the Delaware team. Francis Cahoon, veteran Y. M. C. A. matman, who was expected to make a strong bid for the 155-pound crown, will not be able to compete, due to an injury received last week while wrestling at Washington College with the "Y" team. Cahoon, due to his experience, has been appointed chief official for the tournament.

He has the job of scouting a Us-; trict that includes New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania. . Delaware. Maryland and the District of Columbia. As a result he decided to settle in Wilmington, which he figures about as close to being the hub of his territory as he could find. McCorry started in organized baseball as a pitcher, a righthander by the way, with Greensburg, Pa, in the Western Pennsylvania League back in 1907. "That was a long time ago," he said, "and I hit a lot of clubs in the intervening years." In 1909 he played for the St. Louis Browns and then in 1911 went to Albany, which was in what was then the New York State League.

Then followed Spokane of the Northwest League and then back to Albany, which was then in the International League. McCorry managed the Albany Club for 15 years. starting in 1920. Then in 1937 he bought tr.ft Albany club which had travelled almost as much as McCorry for it was now in th2 Eastern League. "I kept them for two years and then in 1939 I sold the club to Tom McCafferv who still owns it." After he sold the Albany club McCorry went with the Cincinnati Reds as general manager of their Ogden. Utah, club in the Pioneer League. "Then in 1942 I got my first tasU of scouting." McCorry said, "for th Reds gave me a job as scout in the International League and American Association." Became Road Secretary In 1944 he became road secretary for the Reds and he still laughs over the difficulties of a road secretary in wartime. "We never knew whether or not we were going to have train reservations for the whole team or not," h laughed. "There were a lot of problems connected with the job, but it was fun." Last year he went with th Yankees as general manager of the-Binghamton Yankee of the Eastern League. And it was at that time that he first became acquainted with Wilmington for the Yankees played a exhibition series with the Blue Rocks last spring. Wilmington certainly has a fine ball park." he said, "It was really a fine field to play on. I sort of liked the town when I was here before and so when the Yankees assigned me to this territory. I decided to make it my headquarters. What They Look For When asked just what a scout looks for in prospective ball players he emphasized size and natural ability. "I look for a boy with strong arms and the ability to hit what we call a long ball," McCorry said. "Of course he has to be able to run and so on." A scout is aided by fellows in different communities "who tip him off to likely looking prospects. Thenhej goes to the particular town in question and look over the youngsters himself. If he likes the youngster's looks he signs him up.
