Hyatt Plays His Greatest Game to Make Fitt Winner PITTSBURG, Jan. 7.---Charley Hyatt's brilliant work, last, n i g h t gave Pitt a 38-37 victory over Montana State's famous Bobcats in UK.- Stadium pavilion. The Westerners were regarded as favorites and the victory of Pitt is a big feather "In tho cap" o-f that club. Captain Hyatt played the most spectacular contest ot his whole career to bring tho quintet through. At certain stages, Pitt trailed far behind, only to slowly but surely close- those- gaps and become a constant threat. It wao the- greatest .floor victory in tlio history of Pitt basketball. ' Tho performance of Chipper- Charley inado a l m o s t a. one-inn a engage- m e n t o u t of tho affair. l i e counter) five field goals in tbe f i r s t half, afklcd sevnit in tho second half '-ind caged t h r e e fouls in six attempts for 27 of. his chi'b's 38 points. Ls Coben and Zehtuss, v,-ho scored one goal each, were the only other Pitt men to be credited w i t h double- deckers. Tho high spots came- at -.ho closing moments. The game had been so exciting that each coach, in the latter periods, had rushed onto the court, only to be promptly ordered off by tho officials. With f o u r m i n u t e s to go Pitt, was trailing by f o u r points. Hyatt cut. one In from mid-floor and Kowallis became a hero by sinking both ends oC a multiple foul. Tho scoreboard showed a 36-3G deadlock. Then Worthiaglon of Montana made Ids try for foul good and t b o Western club again had an edge, w i t h the one-point margin seeming Ifko a m o u n t a i n . Then Hyatt, in renponso to the 5,000 frenzied fans took a pass in mid-floor, sdg-zaggcd big way up to Uic b a n k b o a r d past two opposing guards and won the c i i g a f o m e n t w i t h ;L p e r f e c t carom shol.

Boyle, sports editor of the P i t t s b u r g Post-Gazette, passes a few interesting remarks on what is news and what is not news In football after a former Dartmouth star tells how het h i n k s tho papers s h o u l d "bandle" tho reports of the siiort. He says: "Robert Bruce ' MacPliaii, former Dartmouth quarterback and captain, in a dinner address, discussed contributions to the sporting pages with p a r t i c u l a r r e f e r e n c e to c.ollegiatB football. His a t t i t u d e , generally, is k i n d l y , b u t ho finds f a u l t with a certain lack of perspective suffered by most, f o o t b a l l writers. He stresses the point t h n t too o f f o n an I n d i v i d u a l star Is played u p and too o f t e n victory is emphasized as Hie essential thing about t h e game. With ibis tbo former D a r t m o u t h player disagree!!. Ho is a g a i n s t tho p l a y i n g u p of a star and he says there is much more in the- collegiate game than t.lie mere score-, which, be believes, is Incidental to the training, the d i s c i p l i n e and tho outlook a footbali player receives from the game. These good experiences, Mr. MacPball well points out, are available to the players on losing teams as well as v players, ot winning teams. Hence, the score is not quite- so vital as most football writers deem it to be. " 'When,' c o n c l u d e s Mr. MacPhall, 'football writers appreciate that football owes its place in the sun to the fact that it is in a sense tbo dramatization of some of tho finer qualities in life, that it is a character b u i l d i n g agency .and not an advertising medium, and t h a t its values are too far- reaching a n d i n t a n g i b l e t o b o meas- u r e d In scores, t h e n t h n y w i l l havo a c h i e v e d a p-cr.s-pectivo t h a i will reflect K s e l f t h r o u g h tlicir columns t o tho e v e r l a s t i n g b r n r i l s . of Hie game.' "This, f r o m t h e s t a n d p o i n t of tbo game's welfare, is very h o u n d s t u f f , it. seems hero. However, Mr. MacPhail w i l l do well to remember t h a t football writers- cannot be placed in 1 tho position of b e i n g concerned p r i m a r i l y w i t h e i t h e r h e l p i n g or h u r t i n g the game. " W h i l e most of them are sympathetic to the game and among its defenders and well-wishers, they aro first w o r k i n g reporters for newspapers, whose mission is to sell news to the p u b l i c . Consequently, 1C universities and colleges make of their a t h l e t i c e v e n t s big news stories thero is n o t h i n g left, for reporters to do but jurigu them a c c o r d i n g l y and handle them ns o t h e r news stories are h a n d l e d . "Mr. MacPhail argues soundly from the s t a n d p o i n t of t h e game's welfare, but t h e r e is a .possible chance that li-om Uio s t a n d p o i n t oi 1 sport page interest liis g r o u n d is not solid, i n o t h e r words, a rx'uorier in covering a gams t h a t a t t r a c t s 15,000 persons (showing great I n t e r e s t on the part of tho public) c a n n o t cut and t r i m liis story wltb an eye to the good nj- t h e g a m e he writc's a b o u t .
