TUESDAY, JANUARY 3, 1903. THE DAILY COBRTEK. CONNELLSVILLE, PA PAGE SEVEN. SPORTORIALS ·*J By JOHN H. WHORIC, Sports Editor ^* THE BASKETBALL O\iTLOOK IK DISTRICT Another W. P. I. A. L. basketball season gets started tonight with 21 sections bringing together the cream of cage talent in the opening of the annual tournament to determine the king ot the great indoor sport. Chances of a district champion here arc remote as Connellsville, having a small and green squad, will run into trouble in every port in Section 9 in which Greensburg is the defending champion, a ruler that may have to give way to a powerful Norwin five although Johnstown can bo counted on to make it a hot race. These three schools were in the thick of last year's 1 fight. Latrobe has a nifty outfit while Scottdale boasts a five that has been undefeated in its prc-lcaguc program and may be looked upon as the section's dark horse. Jeannettc expects to improve its standing over last year but isn't given much flag, hopes. At the moment as the schools prepare to pry OZ the lid, it looks like Nonvin first, Grccnsburg second, Johnstown third; Scottdale fourth, Latiobc fifth, Jcan- nette sixth with the Cokcrs at the bottom of the heap. The Millers may be the dark horse and may move up --or even slip into fifth or sixth place--in the heat of a red hot title race, the kind this section always produces. A team that wins the Section 9 crown will know it has been in a bunch of ball games, Dunbar Township has been moved into Section 17, a Class B group, and tonight meets its toughest assignment of the year, invading West'Newton, the team that will give the Red ond Black a run for the crown, a quintet which at the present time gives promise of running off with the toga unless Leisenring can turn the trick tonight. Rostraver Township and South Huntingdon will step out in -high gear which should make it an interesting four-way race. While we -naturally will be pulling for the local school (the Mules) to win, we believe West Newton will take the division's -honors-with Dunbar sccocd, Rostraver third, South Huntingdon fourth, Perry Township fifth, Sewick- ·Icy Township sixth, Belle Vcrnon seventh and Fayette City cigtth. Youngwood should be the team to ^ke the diadem in'Section 13 al' though it will find itself henmed in oil around by Ligonicr, Dcrry Town- _shlp and Mount Pleasant. Early ·season performances rate the teams: Youngwood, Derry Township, Ligon- Jcr, Mount'Pleasant, Derry, .Hurst ^and East Huntingdon Townshi'i. ~; Section 15 has been rcvampet with the outlawing of five former Ticm- bers and the. group now.include four Fayctte ond four Washington ounty - schools. Although we haven't leard much of others, we like Ccntorille's chances of retaining its titlewith Redstone a close second. Also i the division are North Belle Venon which may pull a big surprise s Its second season of basketball, Gcman, Ellswo^-th-Cokeburg, East Pike^un, East Bethlehem and Bcntleyville In Section 4, Monesscn shuld come in first although Charlcroi aay be tough company. Donora wulc have been an odds-on favorite tore- peat but three of its stars were rice ineligible. Also enrolled arc Brows- vllle, California and Monongahel. Washington shouldn't have ay "trouble in repeating in Sections against Canor-sburg, Carmichael, (Trinity and Waynesburg as it has veteran team back. Claysvillc prot ably will walk ouVwlth honors Section 19 for its second straij year.

The Pointers will be tough company for the York Runners . .. Leading again with his chin, Charles W. Date, the Greensburg sports writer, offers Westmoreland county Class B mythicals, to wit: Mnarml, South Huntingdon, and R. Manns, Traflord, ends; Bizub, Youngwood, and Marsli, West Newton, tackles; Tucci, Youngwood, and Elaincy, Rostraver, guards; Moore, Bell Township, center; F. Ferraro, Trafford, quarter; McCloud, West Newton, and Petruccl, Youngwood, halfbacks, and Sllvasy, S. Huntingdon, fullback. The second team includes: Zuback, Trafford, and Kolenz, South Huntingdon, .ends; Kologic, Avonmorc, and McCullough, West Newton, tackles; Palmiscano, Bell Township, and Humphreys, Derry, guards; Hantz, Ligonier, center; Kcmpka, Bell, quaitcr; Phelps and Odolli, South Huntingdon, halfbacks, and Palmer, Youngwood, fullback . . Hazlcton's claim to being the hotbed of Pennsylvania basketball was bolstered by the fact that the 1,500-scat high school gym was sold out lor the entire season a few days after the tickets were placed on sale ... James E. Gardner, the Jcannette News-Dispatch writer, reviewing the basketball situation in Section 9, penned: "Unless Conncllsville improves considerably, the Cokers will receive the nomination for the much undesirec cellar position" ... Charlcroi and Donora athletic councils revealed in a joint statement a break in athletic relations is likely if present "bad feeling" between the two schools continues. The schools mix in a pair of .basketball games and the attitude of players, coaches and fans will determine whether or not competition is to end. It's strange that such steps must be taken in this day and age You'd imagine that Charlcroi and Donora would have grown up by this time. But when athletics cause bitter feeling between the people of two neighboring towns to such an extent some one might get hurt, then we say the sport should not be tolerated. BITS HERE AND THERE "For years the youngsters have limit dinned into their ears that, to be successful, they must leave their baseline and go to the net.

L.--together with TJniontown--for violating the eligibility rules last year and were placed on a year's probation. The coaches decided to create a league which we are sorry to say has been dubbed the "Outlaw League." Probably when the curtain comes down on the court campaign next February, a check may reveal that we didn't even call one winner but wouldn't that be according to Hoylo. Too often In the world of sports, the call o£ the dubbed sports expert has meant just the opposite. We had kinda promised ourselves not to go in for proognostication of basketball winners and we won't try to pick them out twice a week. This one time may be once too often.

ROSE BOWL'GAME TOPS IN THRILLS Five football teams whoso performances during the 1938 season earned them the privilege of playing n "bowl" games proved their claims to greatness by scoring clean-cut vi-- .orles Monday before banner crowds ot New Year fans. Five others were, as the saying goes, defeated but not disgraced. In addition, "all-star" squads played right up to that designation as the West conquered the East at San Francisco and the North defeated the South at Montgomery, AID. Southern California's Trojans, Pacific Coast champions, took the place at the head of the winning Mrade when they defeated the Blue Devils of Duke, 7-3, before 91,000 fans in the Pasadena Rose Bowl classic, oldest of the New Year's games. Briefly, the day's other results were: Davcy O'Brien and Connie Spnrks led Texas Christian'to a 15-7 triumph over Carnegie Tech in the Sugar Bowl at New Orleans before more than 50,000, the largest crowd ever assembled there. 'Bullet Bill" Patterson of Baylor threw the passes that enabled the West to upset the East 14-0 as 60,000 fans gave, the annual charity game Its first capacity crowd in 14 years. Tennessee overpowered and out- roughed Oklahoma's Sooners, 17-0 as an overflow throng of 32,191 looked on in Miami's Orange Bowl. St. Mary's smothered Texas Tech's passing attack for three periods and led 20-0, then barely pulled out a 20-W decision as the red raiders thrilled 40,000 fans, another record crowd, with their aerial tricks in the last quarter of the Cotton Bowl game at Dallas. Utah proved all too strong for New Mexico and swamped the Lobos 26-0 before 13,500 in the Sun Bowl at El Pnso. One 83-yard drive, featuring Tony Ippolito of Purdue and Mike Kabcalo ot Ohio State enabled the Northern All-Star team to defeat the Southern aggregation, 7-0, before 8,000 in the Blue-Gray game at Montgomery. The Rose Bowl game undoubtedly took the day's prize for thrills. Scoreless until the last quarter, Duke drove inside the 35-yard line for the first time and took the lead on a field goal by Tony RufTa. Then the Trojans made an opening and sent in Doyle Nuve, a fourth string back who can pass. lie completed four In a row, the last going 18 yards, to Antelope Al Krucgcr for the winning touchdown.

Six Good Scraps, One,in Extra Period, Feature Center Loops. MORE ACTION NEXT SATURDAY Seventeen Die in 1938, Two Less Than 1937, 16 Under 1931. NO FATALITIES AMONG COLLEGES CHICAGO, Jan. 3.--Deaths rcsult- ng directly from football hit an jll-time low during the past season, Dr. Floyd R. Eastwood of Purdue University told the National Football Coaches and- the National Collegiate Athletic associations today in his annual report. The report ihowed that there were 17 such fatalities during 1038, two less than the previous year and 16 tower than the peak year of 1931. There also were 13 deaths resulting indirectly from football-heart failure, pneumonia and the like. Of the deaths directly attributable io football, eight occurred in high school, four in sandlot, three in athletic club and two in college games. Last year there were no "college! fatalities. High schools, which had 13 deaths last year, showed the greatest improvement since records have been available. The gridhon .mortality rate in 1938 represented a drop of 48.4, per cent from the figure eight years ago. Compared with the 1931 figure, college fatalities this year were reduced 75 per cent, sand lot 60 per cent and high icliool 33 1-3 per cent. There was no change in athletic club deaths. Eastwood attributed most of the reduction to better equipment, rules changes and more competent supervision. His report, prepared for the coaches association's committee on injuries and fatalities and the N. C. A. A.'s football rules committee, also revealed that: 1--Forty-one per cent of the fatalities occurred during October, 26 per cent during November, 14 per cent during September and seven per cent during December. The fourth, third and second weeks in October and the second week in November wore most hazardous. 2--The greatest number of fatalities occurred during the first five minutes of play (15 per cent), with 13 per cent occurring during the second five minutes and nine per ccnl during the third flve minutes. 3--Sixteen per cent of the fatalities occurred during the first period, 13 per cent during the fourth, 12 per cent during the second and seven per cent during the third periods Fifty-two per cent were not specified 4--Halfbacks suffered 20 per cen' of the fatal Injuries, ends 13 per cent, tackles 10 per cent, fullbacks eight per cent, guards eight per cent quarterbacks six per cent and centers, five per cent. 5--The head, spins! cord' and abdomen were the parts of the body most frequently fatally injured with tackling accounting for 43 jier ccnl of those injuries, blocking 11 per cen 1 and being tackled nine per cent Ccrobial hemorrhages or skull fractures accounted for 42 per cent oi the deaths, spinal cord lacerations "U per cent and internal injuries 23 pei cent. G--Forty-six per cent of the fatalities occurred to boys 16 to 18 years old, 21 per cent to those between 1! and 21, 10 per cent to 13-15 and nine per cent to those 22-24 years old. 7 --Infection caused 39 per cent i the deaths resulting indirectly from football, he.irt condition 18, pneumonia 11 per cent, miscellaneous 3 per cent. Eastwood recommended that ther^. be: A proper warm-up period before a player enters a game; frcquen .substitutions If necessary late in the game to eliminate the accident fatigue factor; ,i team physician present during practice and during games; continued stress on skillfu execution of fundamentals during October and at the beginning of the season; improvement of head guan construction to provide better protection for that area; self-requested removal from a game by a player when he Is injured; stress by high school athletic associations on grcatei safety procedures for football; carefu tieatmcnt of skin breaks and a dailj check by parents of thejr son's dail; condition.
