PAGE TEN. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. SATURDAY, JANUARY 7, 1939. Basketball SPORTORIALS +^ By JOHN H, WIIORIC, Sports Editor ^^ BERTHA LUECK MAKES 230 : DUCKF1N SCORE ; "Bowling in a match ngamst the formidable Lntrobc Paramount lassies, Bcitha Ljcck, captain of the local Varsity Girls team, scoied a sensational 236 in one of her games and recorded what is believed to be one of the highest marks c\ er turned in by a female bowler in this district," writes Louis P. Graham "Since Octobei, Miss Lueck has scoied 230 or better on three different occasions--231 and 232--and Monday night at the Mount Pleasant Recreation Center she led oft with eight straight stakes to pace her team to vjctory by bowling a 23G for one game. "The Varsity Girls boaat the most enviable record in this region and their manager, M. R. Santora, of the Recreation Center, issues a challenge to all girl teams m the Fay-West region. The club includes Maiy Fionck, Eleanoi Ramage, Betty Ramage, Bcitha Lueck, Cecilia Mondnlek, Gladys Albright, Atlanta Albught and Peg Miller. 1 " Editor's Note--Dear Lou H Miss Lueck has the time, we'd be glad to ha\ e her bov. I m our place on Tuesday nights in the City Industual League We expect to «in the second half title and won't mind a bit using a ringer or two). BITS HERE AND THERE Monte Straiten is senous about wanting to pitch for the White Sox this season dispite the loss of his light leg m a hunting accident in Texas. While he might be able to get away part of the time, the opposing clubs could do mahcm by "layin 'em down" around the pitcher because Monte couldn't expect any meicy when the season gets under way. He might come in handy for batting practice, however, if he insists on earning his keep . . We still believe theic's time to organize a city or district baskctbal' league. . March of Time radio piogram has settled with Jack Goffcy, Fordham's graduate manager of athletes for 51,200 and a letter of apology for depleting him as the "mug" in its dramatization of the introduction of the new yellow ball in college baseball last spring. . . Until defeated by Princeton last fall, Yale had never lost a football game to an opponent scouted by Greasy Ncale, formerly of Mountaineer fame, who now helps Ducky Pond. . . Paul Derringer, the Cincinnati twirler, Ins not hit a batsman in the past two years and has uncorked only one wild pitch Tommy Fair has been offered $25,000 guarantee to fight Len Harvey, English heavy king, in London Mny 12. Promoter Armand Vincent also of fried to pay the line of 53,750 which the British board of boxing control/ imposed on Fart when he refused to defend his empire crown which Harvey eventually acquit cd. A uniform ball to gi\e pitchers a better hold has been adopted by both the American and National leagues for 1939. . . Mule deer or Rocky Mountain "black tails" are also known as the "jumping deer" because of their stiff-legged bounding. . . England now has 1,000 amateur baseball teams on the field Jock. Sutherland, Pitt coach, says Len Eshmont of Fordham is better than Red Grange was in his first year at Illinois . . When a baby eel is a few inches long it is as flat- shaped as a piece of ribbon. . . Next to tne sage grouse, the dusky grouse or fool grouse of western mountain range is the largest bird of this genus m the United States . . Gene Tun- ncy says Joe Louis will rum himself eating too much fried chicken. That's a nice way to do it . . Canadian geese may be identified by their large size, jet-black head and neck and by the conspiuous white crescent encircling the throat. . . Sid Luckman, Columbia University's great football passer, lost 20 pounds during the grid season. He says Ken Suong was the most polished player he has ever seen. Ken is playing for the Giants. . . In their wild state, moose are practicularly fond ot the following browse Birch hemlock, alder, spruce, aspen, willow and maple trees and saplings TEN PER CENT OF HUNTERS IN PENNSYLVANIA Ten per cent of the hunters in the United States lives within the boundaries of Pennsylvania. "This means thit over a half million sportsmen spend pait of each ·ear in the woods and fields of the Keystone State," Dr. Logan J. Bennett, in charge of the cooperative vildMe rcseaich unit at Pennsjl- vama State College, declaied m a recent appearance thcic 'Many more thousands, including persons of all age, like to be out-of- doois to enjoy the wild creatuies vholly from an aesthetic \iewpoint. This interest in wildlife has brought ·ibout the necessity of learning moie ibout the environment and lequuc- nenti of the vaiious wild ipcues so hat M e may woik out better methods for their piescrvation, incieasc and use." It was foi these icasons the Pennsylvania Wildlife Research Unit was organized. It is financed equally jy the United States Bureau of the 3iological Suivej, the Pennsylvania Game Commission and the college. ' Wildlife management is a part of nd management," Dr. Bennett declared "In Pennsylvania about 40 per cent of the land is devoted to forests and the remainder to agriculture. In both forestry and agriculture we find game and non-game ,pccies of wildlife that arc of general interest and value. In all cases, these species arc a by-product of the land and their perpetuation depends upon wise land use " Parochiais Lose To Georges Quint Unable to score in the fust period Immaculate Conception High quintet managed to hold Georges Township to six points but the second quarter found the home team on a rampage to rally 16 points and then completing the rout of the Owls in second half to win 55-18.

Illustrating how the intense thought involved in winning some matches can place the player in a trance, Guldahl confesses in an article, entitled "Headaches for Money" m a national magazine, that those pictuics taken of him right after he'd emerged the winner of the National Open in Colorado showed him with a blank face because "to tell the truth, I didn't realize I'd won the thing." 'A crowd rushed around me thT instant after I'd holed out. I had the nutty idea that there was a big fight or a fire or some kind of a panic going on. I kept asking for my wife," Ralph penned. "I don't let her follow me when I'm playing golf. I'm apt to get thinking about her, then, and it takes my mind off the shots. "Some people got her through the crowd. She kissed me while a bunch of pictures were being taken. I was punch diunk from keeping my mine all set on my golf. But with all that picture taking I came out of the fog iar enough to ask her who'd won She told me later that I must have asked her a dozen times 'Who won? She finally told me to snap out of it and must have said it like I was just a husband instead of a golf champion because I did get myself together and it da\vncd on me that I was 'in'; 'in* as the winner of my second National Open title and, all in, physical!} " Aiverton Loses To Ligonier Five East Huntingdon Township High suffered its second reversal in Section 13 last night at the Alvcrton gymn when Ligomcr, paced by its ace forward, Donato, tallied 15 times from the field to win by a 30-16 score. , Donato personally accounted for enough points to decide the battle hitting the cords for 10 doubledeck- ers. Johnston, another forward, .me Ramsey, center, were the only other members ot the visiting aggregation to get in the scoring columns despite the fact that Ligomcr used 11 players in the game. Petro and Clausnei topped the Al- vcrton point-getters with five points each.

Eddie Spotovich, former Pitt star, led the field in scoring with 17 points, while D'Orazio, dimumti\c forward of the Mountaineers, was next with 14. The visttois gave an exhibition of ball handling that has seldom been seen here Their passing attack included passes behind their back and between their legs that sent the ball true to a teammate and enabled them to get a player unguarded for a shot at the basket The score at the end of the icgula- t'on game was tied at 36-36 This was made possible through the accurate foul shooting ability of Spoto- vich who stepped to the free line with the home club one point behind and sank the toss in the closing seconds of the contest. Eddie had tallied a field goal when fouled but the officials refused ' count it ruling that the uhistli? for the foul had bloun before the ball %vas shot Tile line-ups' Cascys Schrum, t .
