Tho Millars have beeu operating on tho order of the Cokers--going at a w i n n i n g clip at tim-os and then suddenly shoM ing a real hick of form. If both teams- should 'bo hitting at their best tomorrow, it will be one of those thrillers t'mt has regularly marked contests bftwee-n the two schools. Public irterest, has been aroused by tho manner in which tha Cokers defeated Mount Pleasant ou Tuesday night and i repeat in the win column is hoped for. This guarantees a capacity house at the gymnasium and there will be a throng awaiting when the doors open. Krenuently it has been necessary to close tiht doors at the school building when Scottdale has come hero, because of the overflow nnm'bera. A big dolega.tion of spectators, will follow tin club hero from the Mil! Town. Th-e contest will count In the etand- ing of tho \V. P. I. A.

KEACT CORNER WINS ITS TENTH CONTEST, DEFEATING SMITHTON Tho Keagy Corner baskoteers slashed their way through the Smithton A. C. nulntct to a hard-fought victory last evening at the State Armory iu the- preliminary game to the Casey-Monessen encounter, the final score", being U7-32. Encountering a stiff opposition the Corner lads had to put forth their bert efforts to finish ahead of -he visiting aggregation and register their tenth straight success. Sellers started the scoring with a ncnt shot from the side of the court. Flolo followed w i t h a successful try from the f r e e line. Due to the defensive playing during the first period neither team ran up much o£ a score and the count was tied at 7-7 when that quarter ended. Tha locals set a fast pacs throughout the second period ot the fray and as tho half cams to a close the visitors were trailing a 19-10 score. Tho Smithton boys were far from being beaten, however, for immediately after tho openlag of the second halt they started a shooting "bee" of their own and when that period ended it found vho score again tied, 23-23. Gradually the southsiders Increased | their lead and when the game closed , they \\erij trying to bat the ball into the net tor another tally. Tonight the Corner quintet journeys to Masontowa where it will play the Masoutov,-u Collegians. The line-up: Corner--U7, Smithton A. C.--82. Flslur Leaks Stoops Frost Zaffy Commodores Hope to Keep in Fight nl Expense of Huntsman Clun HARD BATTLE ANTICIPATED *y One of the h irdest battles of the basketball season is anticipated on Friday evening at the Alverton gymnasium where Perry and East Huntingdon dribblers will clash. The Commodoree, tied with Suwick- ley for second position, hope to retain the berth ot runner-up to Dunbar Township and will be out to administer a trouncing to tho proteges of J. Owen Huntsman who are bnt on chalking up tha first triumph at the espouse of the Perry team, tutored by Clifford G. Dlckson. Perryopolia has a veteran contingent end the Varsity of the East Huntingdon institution, in a sense, may be termed that for the club's regulars t were tho first tring reserves last sea-. son. However the Alverton outfit is , not experienced to the extent of the · invaders. Nevurtheless the two teams are expected to put up a hectic battle! that will draw an overflow crowd. Inasmuch at D, T. goes to Belle | Vernon and if favored to win easily and Sewickley tiike« on Hurst and the former te aleo expected to take a ne«.t triumph, Perrj Township is determined to keep in the win ranks and maintain its rank with the Dunbar and Hermlnie contingents. A defeat for Perry would fhrow that outfit into third position and possibly be responsible for it losing its beet pennant chance. Huntenian v-'ill have to watch Galley, tho plucky forward who haa that easy going and unconcerned appearance which is decidedly misleading. He has shown the beet stuff of any in the Perryopoli.i roster although Swettw and Thrasher have been putting un a great exhibi'ion. Baughman and Daugherty ah-o have beeu playing a ,neet brand.

Leonard was tae highest individual scorer of tha contest, garnering a total of 15 points and he rnado possible many other goals with hard, sipping passes. The. big Monessen center won the admiration of the whole crowd. Unable to penetrate very deep into MouesBeu territory, tho Casey club resorted to long shots which has always been a meant; of breaking up such a defense should many of these attempts prove successful but the ! visitors were content to take this [chance and generally got tha ball on the rebound, taking It down the floor for a shot at their own goal.
