He left Altoona in 1933 alter having coached there since returning from the Army. Walter Camp had honored him in 1916 while McCroight was starring for Washington Ss Lee. . . Greensburg's narrow escape, 17-16, from Latrobe was even closer than that for the Ray Wild five was denied a two-pointer that went through the net in the final minute of play when Cologrande fired the ball as he failed to hear the referee's whistle amid the carryings-on of the 600 howling spectators. .. Roger, center on Taylor AUderdlce High of Pittsburgh, came through with IS field goals and 10 points as his team beat Carrick, 66 to 13. The old record was 32 points made In 1926 by Man- dcra of Allegheny and tied fa 1938 by Garboden of Wcstinghouse. Few teams can score 40 points. . .

The Mountaineers have a nice gang from last season.. Referee Frank Anderson made . "nice little talk" to the Jcannette cage fans in a recent game and ii was a masterpiece of effective speaking as it had the peculiar and unexpected virtue of quieting to bronkers who take a fiendish dellgh - in heckling his decisions. The re leree gently informed the heckler ' that the booing didn't hurt him bu it might cost Jeannette a loul and he disliked calling a foul against the Jawhawks in such a close one as the team was in at the moment.

Tie bird learns that any noise com- ng towards him may be a signal of danger and, Instead of flushing, he vill creep along the ground or run, refusing, until forced, to rise into the air "where he might become a target r or a sportsman's Bun or a bird of prey. For this reason, spaniels are he best dogs lor hunting pheasants. T"iey_TMll crowd the bird until it flushes instead of pointing him . . .
