PAXTANG FIREMEN DEFEAT BOWMAN The Paxtang Fire Company basket ball team defeated the Bowman Store club by a count of 59 to 53 in a game played on the firemen's court at Paxtang last night. Glace, of the Bowman five, led the scorers of the contest, getting twenty - three points, and Krasovic tallied nineteen to set the pace for the firemen. In a preliminary game the Firemen Juniors defeated the Trinity Church team, 51 to 26. A game scheduled to have been played tonight on the Paxtang court between the firemen and the Central Y. M. C. A. club has been postponed until Monday night. . . . that with the warmer breezes comes the first sports of Spring with baseball ready to open the middle of next month in the big leagues, and the minor leagues falling in line at various times following the Big Timer's opener. Shortly after that about three weeks to be exact the historic Kentucky Derby has its sixty - second runoff, with the promise of being the greatest ever, and one of the hardest in which to pick winners before the race. Mr. Widener's Brevity right now seems to be the favorite, and was in the winter books, but something usually happens to thosewhich are hand - picked for those books, and ere the spring has passed, some mount, not so favorably thought of in the winter, carries off the 50,000 odd dollars. It is always a great race the most colorful in Ameri - j can turf annals, and long before the day of the race, planes, special trains, autos and buses are making arrangements to get fans to Louisville to witness an event that will take scarcely two min utes to complete, but after it's completed, of course, you have ogled the best horse flesh in America. IMA mmmmmmmmmmammmmme NOBE FRANK Licj I ! (o J LEBANON High School has done much this winter to keep Central Pennsylvania in the basket ball eye, and the courageous fight she still is waging gives hope that she might emerge State champion for the first time in history. Should that be accomplished, we of Harrisburg, are not so far removed that we can't climb on the Lebanon bandwagon and derive considerable pleasure through the happenstance of proximity. Many feel that the week's layoff will seriously affect the smooth working of the team, but Coach Eddie Schlosser discounts this and declared that it will be a benefit to his boys who have been playing steadily of late due to the necessity of getting through the eliminations. With that rest behind them however, it is quite likely they will be able to go after the winner of the Newport, Luxerne, Berwick round robin hammer and tongs. A victory here will give them the Eastern Finalists' title. The game will likely be played at the Palestra early next week, the Palestra, as you know, being the home court of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. rpHOSE Hershey golf tourneys will soon be comin' 'round, the bend I too for not being a golfer nor having the slightest desire to be 1 one, I feel sure no one enjoys the great links' game any more than I that is, from the posting board at the eighteenth hole, where I can see all the golf I care to witness. I watch to see the expressions on the faces of the various competitors as they come in with their scores and then gaze inquiringly around to see who are the leaders and what they must do to get back into the charmed circle, or what they must do to stay in it. It's great fun with no worries attached when you just sit there, waiting for them to come to you, and that is the type of golf writer I aspire to be an eighteenth - hole reception committee Let Bob Ogilvie, Doc Springer, Bill McClure and others follow them around I'll be seeing them at the posting board. WITH the removal of the Senator franchise to York as now seems likely because of the condition of the Island diamond, sandlot baseball should get a real play and chance to assert itself. Sandlot ball, for years has been drawing greater crowds than pro ball could ever hope to of course, the reason being it's a collection proposition with the former and a lay - down with the pros, which makes a big difference, but nevertheless, the sandlottcrs get their biggest boost of many years when this season rolls around.

Officials of the Southern Pennsylvania Inter scholastic Conference have been forced to abandon the annual conference track and field meet, it was announced yesterday, following the decisions of Carlisle, Shippensburg, and Chambersburg High Schools dropping track from the spring program.

Twenty - five candidates for the 1936 Lebanon Valley College varsity baseball team answered Coach Metoxen's call for the initial workout on the college athletic field today. - The group of diamond prospects included only three lettennen from the Eastern Pennsylvania Collegiate Baseball League championship team that wore the Lebanon Valley colors last season, Charles Bar - tolet, Harrisburg. hard hitting first sacker; Ray Patrizio. Oakmont, and Paul Billett. Harrisburg, league leading pitcher, will form the nucleus of the 1936 edition of the "Flying Dutchmen." Must Rebuild Coach Metoxen will be faced with the task of completely rebuilding his infield before the opening of the season April 18. Harold Kroske, Trenton, N. J., Edward Kress, Minersville, and Frank Poloniak, East Rutherford, N. J., seem to hold the inside track on the backstop candidates. All three have had con siderable experience behind the plate and seem to be natural hitters. ' Raymond Frey, Lebanon, is Bartolet's only competitor for the first base position. Ralph Billett, Harrisburg, Ross Sheesley, Harrisburg. Ray Patrizio, Oakmont, Jonah Davies, Eugene Shenk, Palmyra, Victor Freidingr, Millersburg, Adolph Capka, Middle - town, George Holtzman, Harrisburg, Ernest Snyder, Jonestown, and Kell, Lovsville, are the outstanding can didates for the remaining infield assignments. Mound Prospects Marshall Frey, Chambersburg, Howe Keiter, Dayton, Va., Arthur Heisch, New York, Mike Garzella, Pittston, Carl Dempsey, Williams - port, and Gordon Davies, Kingston, are making strong bids for the outfield posts. In addition to Paul Billett, Coach Metoxen will have John Tindall, Dutch Neck, N. J., and Franklin Zerbe, Valley View, southpaws, and Wilbur Gibble, Palmyra, righthander, to share the mound duties. Jonah Davies and Ralph Billett, in - fielders, can also do a turn on the mound as relief hurlers. HUMMELSTOWN GAME The Highspire and Hummelstown High School girls' basket ball teams will meet tonight on the Hummelstown court to determine the winner of the Lower Dauphin County co - ed league. OLYMPIC CAGE TRIALS TO CLOSE THIS WEEK; 3 TEAMS SELECTED New York, March 7t,(JP) The task of selecting the eight teams to compete in the final Olympic basket ball tryouts at Madison Square Garden in April is due to be completed this week after - several weeks of preliminary competition throughout the country. The two Amateur Athletic Union representatives emerged from last week's tourney at Denver the Globe Refiners, of McPherson, Kan., winners, and the Universals, of Hollywood, Calif., runners - up. These two undoubtedly will be the favorites in the final tourney April 3, 4 and 5 or 6. The Refiners, billed as the "tallest team in the world," showed great power in whipping an all - star team of New York College players before they went West to win the National A. A. N. title. HARRY STEES TO MANAGE ENOLA Harry Stees will manage the Enola - Midway club of the West Shore Twilight League this season, succeeding Dewey Eisenberger. Enola got a break in securing the former baseball and gridiron star of Pennsylvania State College as its leader for the coming season for he compiled a great record for himself in sandlot baseball in the old Dauphin - Perry League and also as pilot of the Moose club in the West End circuit. Under his leadership Marysville won three straight championships In the Dauphin - Perry circuit in 1919, 1920 and 1921. His success brought him offers of managing jobs in the former Blue Ridge League, which he turned down as he preferred to keep his job as an engineer with the Pennsylvania Railroad. LEMOYNE JOINS TWILIGHT LEAGUE Lemoyne was elected a member of the West Shore Twilight League last night to replace Lower Allen. The Lower Allen franchise was awarded to Lemoyne which will be sponsored by the Citizen's Fire Company. A new set of officers was elected last night with Fred Beck of Enola being named president to succeed Roy E. Shaffer of Lemoyne. Earl Ludwig was selected vice - president, and John Moul, secretary - treasurer. Both are from Lemoyne. The next meeting will take place April 17 at 8 o'clock in the Lemoyne firehouse, Herman avenue, at which time a schedule will be adopted. ELECTION YEAR MAY HURT MINORS President Tells There Has Been No Decline in Interest St. Louis. March 27, (JP) The na tional pastime is still holding its own. In the opinion of Judge William G. Bramham, president of the National Minor League Baseball Association, there has been no decline in baseball interest in the smaller communities of the country, either on tne part or spectators or of boys wishing to enter the game professionally. Perhaps the healthiest sign about the minor league situation, Bramham said here yesterday, is the growth in the number of leagues in the lower classifications, that is Classes C and D, which are the kindergartens of baseball. There are four or five Class D leagues being formed now, and of the twenty - five or more minor circuits all but seven are in the three lower groups, B, C and D, he said. Last year there were 2000 players signed to first - year contracts, and there has been no decrease in the number of young men seeking to enter baseball this season, according to Bramham. "Night baseball," he added, "proved the salvation of many small leagues during the depression period." The league president said his only worry about the coming summer is that it is election year, notoriously bad for minor league clubs. "Perhaps too many fans will be out working for election rather than paying attention to baseball. But I think they will be found a good many times sitting in the bleachers or the grandstands around the country." - 1 Bisbee, Ariz., March 27. The Chicago White Sox scored in every inning but two yesterday to trample Bisbee, 22 to 2, in an exhibition game. PROSPECTS FOR NY - P LEAGUE NOT BRIGHT; HARRISBURG AT YORK By Associated Prsas Club owners of the New York Pennsylvania Baseball Leaeue took stock of their flood losses todav one appealed for financial aid and another shifted a franchise from Harrisburg to York, while fans looked on anxiouslv. awaiting the result of the new financial strain. wilkes - Barre and Harrisbnrsr were Dartlcularlv hard hit. While Willlamsport has not revealed de - taus oi tne ouuook there, it is known that Bowman field was flooded to within a foot or two of the fence - top and cannot have escaped at least a layer of muck over the diamond. Scranton must rebuild a fence and remove mud from the playing field and similar damage was suffered at Binehamton and Fimirn Only Allentown and Hazleton escaped serious loss.

The job at Harrisburg's Island field was given up as hopeless and owner Joe Cambria last night closed negotiations to lease Eagle Park at York and shift the Senators to that city. York was a charter member of the league from 1923 to 1933 but lack of finances caused the transfer of its franchise to Hazleton. Barons Need Cash The flood left Island Park nt.

THE GREATEST NAME IN WHISKY 80 nn KENTUCKY STRAIGHT WHISKY It must be highly amusing to J. Monro Hunter to have to listen to stories extolling the prowess of the long hitters in golf today - I mean - Lawson Little, the Ameri can and British amateur cham pion, and Jimmy Thomson, the clouting professional. A dozen years ago Hunter was hitting a golf ball farther than any man aia oerore or has done since He was the greatest hitter in golf history, and probably the longest anver tne game will ever know Any man who could spot Abe Mitchell, the English pro whose booming drives won him inter national acclaim, 25 or 30 yards co a drive nad to be great. Hunter and Mitchell hooked up in a match which produced the greatest driving exhibition In his tory in July, 1922. The two were paired in the qualifying round of tne national open on the Shokie links at Glencoe, HL Hooking 400 Yards Hunter actually knocked ball after ball lopsided and egg - shaped with each swish of his 17 - ounce mallet a weapon so heavy the or dinary goner couldn't manage It, yet this six - foot seven - inch giant who weighed 285 pounds handled it as though it were a toothpick Hunter had far the better of the joust . with the eminent Englishman. On - one hole, the tenth, Hunter played a long, low - riding hook beautifully around a rlght - to left dog - leg that broke 300 yards out in the fairway, and reached the edge of the green a 400 - yard Jolt. Mitchell's drive caught the rough on this hole about 300 yards off the tee. In 1924 Hunter put Leo Diegel, Wild Bill Melhorn and a number of other stars to shame during the Western open championship at the Calumet Club, Chicago. A driving contest, a special feature was scheduled, and Diegel was the favoriteuntil Hunter stepped on the tee. It had' rained heavily for two days and the fairways were soggy. Drives stuck where they landed. Hunter's first drive measured 287 yards. It was by far the longest hit. His next two went equally as far. That was enough for Mr. Diegel. He retired to the locker room without driving a ball, conceding the prize to Hunter. GULFCAGERS MEET STEELT0N Charley Oeisking's Gulf Oil Corporation quintet will be battling for Its thirteenth consecutive win of the year tonight when it clashes with Manager Canning's Harrisburg Steel five, first half champions, hi the post - season play - off tilt 'for the 1938 pennant of the Central Y's Industrial Basket Ball League on the Y's main court. The game will begin at 9 o'clock and will be in charge of Harry Sherman. Previous to the big battle Harris burg Dairies and Bowman's will meet in their "rubber tilt - of the season. In regular schedule warfare these two teams have fought twice, each winning one game.
