3IONDAY. J A N U A R Y 1G 1!39. -mi: DATJVT COURIER CONNKLLSVTT;TM?:, PA. PAGE SEVENS Basketball basketball SPORTORIALS ^^ By JOHN H. WHORIC, Sports Editor ^^ WESTERN BASKETS \LL FOB HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS "Miss Pat Clark, director of physical education for girls at the High School, has installed a new kind of basketball foi the girls of the Leaders Club and also for the girls taking part in the tournament games now In pio- gress," writes Jean Sullivnn "This kind o£ ball is not entirely different from the kind which the games have played. There are still the same number of players on a team--six, three forwards and three guards. "The center pass is used instead ol the center jump But the last guard to throw the ball over the center line is allowed to cross over the lino and play as a forward on her team. This' makes It necessary for her foiward lo go over and ploy guard as theio must be an equal number of guards and forwards, on either side of the line However, when the ball goes back across the line the guard ard the forward who crossed the line with the ball must go back and play on the side from which they originally started "Western basketball is sometimes called the 'roving guard 1 as can be easily understood It is to the advantage of the girl and the team on which sh-; is playing for her to cross the line but if she believes that her forwards arc situated property enough to make a basket without her assistance she docs not hove to go over the line. It is not any kmd of a foul It she chooses to do the latter but it is absolutely necessary that the guard of that fon\ ard go over or else It would be an unfair advantage to the forward's team." BITS HERE AND THERE Johnny Vander Mcer, Cincinnati's no-hit artist, was chosen New Jersey's outstanding 1038 sports figure Behind him were Ralph Guldahl, the golfer, and Tony Galcnto, the bartending boxer . . . Al Simmons is trying to cut off 20 pounds . , . Dan Parker wrote in the New York Mirror. "Wrestling fans are no longer the Grade A chumps of sportdom. Those who paid fancy prices to see Don Budge make his professional tennis debut against Ellsworth Vines at Madison Square Garden have shoved the burping addicts off the topshelf in the patsy department and appropriated it for their own use. For prices ranging from $775 down, these Reuben Glues saw a 10- cent tennis match" , Owner Dick VIEWING ATHLETICS The demand for winter sports this year already is greater than any previous year, said Dr James F. Bagardous, secretary of the State Department of Forests and Wateis "Outdoor recreational demands are growing more popular year by year " he said. "And the popularity of winter sports has warranted the opening up of new winter play areas, affording tobogganing, ice skating and even skiing to sports lovers." The city park's skating pond is reviving that sport if only the freeze would last longer. A nine-game football schedule has been announced for 1939 by Athletic Director-Head Coach Frank N. Wolf of Woynesburg College. Tour will be at home, two featuring new rivals In Ottcrbein and Potomac State Teachers, and five arc scheduled away. The calendar follows Sept 23, Potomac Stitc, Sept. 30, at Fordhim; Oct. 6 Duqucsne, at Pittsburgh, night; Oct 14, Otterbein: Oct 20, at West Chester, night; Oct 28, West Virginia Wcslcyan at Buckhannon; Nov. 3, Salem; Nov 11, St. Vincent, and Nov. 18, Geneva, at Beaver Falls Richards of the Detroit Lions would limit the life of a National Pro Foot- Vail Leaguer to five jears in an effort to keep the game at its utmost physical peak and bring on the flow of new faces without which no sport ca i survive . . . Bob Considlnc, the New York sports writer, penned "Organized baseball could win a lot of new supporters and cast off a little of Its bruising commercialism by arranging to play at least one regular big league game at Abner Doubleday Field in little Cooporstown, N. Y, this coming season. It would be a nice gcstuic on the part of the Yankees, generally agreed to be the last word in baseball teams, to engage a reputable American League foe on the very diamond on which the whole business started" . . . Albany (N. Y.) Elks will toss a big party for Rabbit Maranvllle January 16 . . . St Louis Browns lost $96,000 In 1937 and almost as much Is 1938 . . .

SECTION 15 $8,000 paid for him Manager Eddie Collins Removal of the present board of State Game Commissioners is favored by Dr. S. H. Ensmmger, president of York County Sportsmen's Club, who said that damage to the deer herd and the ivirm to hunting will not be known until hunters have an opportunity to go out in the fields in the next three or four years. "Extirpation is the only thing that will cure the cankerous game czars," Ens- mmger said He was opposed to the special doe and anterlcss deer season when more than 135,000 nmmals were slain. We believe the doctor is taking h-msclf too seriously. If you arc Interested In wild life, whether a hunter or not, don't forget birds and animals must have food. When the ground is coverfcd with snow, wild life has a difficult time. That's when n general feeding pjo- gram should be initiated throughout the region. Every animal that perishes from starvation is one less for the next hunting season Johnstown Brings Strong Volley Club To Armory Tuesday Recreation Center independent volleyball team will make its local debut when it plays host to Johnstown Y.

There will be no admission charge General of Boston Red Sox laughi-d at reports Jimmy Foxx was golns to hold out for $40,000 this year. "To me it sounds as if the Philadelphia baseball writers were a bit pressed for a story and put the $40 000 salary crack in Jimmy's mouth. . . A*nong the changes made m the rules of the newly organized United States Trotting Association were That all foals of 1937 and succeeding years must be registered as standard or non-standard bred before a racing license will be issued, that eligibility and classification will be based on net race earnings instead of the gross as in the past, and that every driver must be licensed before being permitted to race . . .
