PAGE TEN THE DAILY COtTRIER. CONNELUSVOiX.'B. PA. MONDAY, JANUARY 10, 193S, Basketball Basketball By JOIIJi H. WJIOIUO Sports Editor 30 YEARS OF BASKETBALL (Part Two) After a very successful season the winter of 1920 when Conncllsville High played for the first time in the W. P. I. A. L., the Cokcr basketeers experienced what might be termed four "lean years" of league play, before producing its brilliant championship five of 1924. The Orange and Black was in Section 3 in the second year, playing with Scottdale, Braddock. North Braddock, Latrobe and Norwin with Norwin copping the divisional gonfalon. The local record was three ' wins as against seven defeats although the year's performance embraced 17 victories in 26 starts--16 independent games. Buff Bufano and Clarence Hume were the forwards, Dan Jones Jumped center and Fred Danner and Edgar (Pep) Francis were guards with Sam Melnick, Charley Driscoll, Somerset Nicd and Beanie Mcncfce as reserves Hume did the foul shooting for the club as it was the custom in those days for one player to throw all from the free line. C. J. Alderfcr finished the season as coach after Nathaniel Marlin resigned. The quintet in 1921, coached by J P. Rupp, broke even in Section 3 against Braddock, North Braddock Latrobe, Nonvm, Turtle Creek an Scottdale with Braddock taking thi laurels. The Cokers were in 21 independent tilts and the season found 17 wins as against 16 losses. Twenty^ one games were played at home. Albert Soisson and Charley Dris coll were forwards, Scaton cento Sam Melnick and Pep Francis guard with Nied, Harmon, Edmunds, Me Cormick, Bill Mounlain and J. D Brown as reserves. Francis was cap "tain and his play resulted in Refere "Eddie Wall naming him on the sec tio'n's all-star outfit. Chester H. Wine was the coach i 1922 when the Cokers won 19 out o 34 starts---winding up with six wins and as many losses in Section against the same opponents. Soisson Harmon, Lowncy, McCormick an Welsh formed the Varsity wit Ozinsky, LaRue, Frutchey, Georgi Wilhelm and Nixon as reserves. Indiana replaced Tutle Creek in Section 3 in 1923 when the Coker won seven and lost five. The loca: played 36 games and won 25 wit McCormick and Harmon or LaRue a forwards, Lowncy at center, Wcls and George at guards with Illig, Wi helm/Nicd, Niland, O'Donncll, Ma and Cunningham as the reserve This year found the Orange and Black playing its first league game away from home.

Lerew, Connellsville High faculty manager of football and track aud Held coach and one of the most able grid officials in Southwestern Pennsylvania, went to Fayettc City last week to speak at the annual dinner for the football squad he used as his theme "The "The Ideal Coach, Player and Fan," and his remarks arc worth serious thought. Himself at one time or other in each role and eventually an arbiter, "Larry" has been able to look into the sports business from practically every angle. His sincerity after careful analysis and study makes his observations valuable tips to those interested in athletics. The coach, Lercw said is citing sonic of the qualifications, must be a XetilUman, should be an individual ·who sets up rules o£ discipline and sees that his boys live up to it and that a man like that is entitled to respect. The player, the speaker continued, first must realize that he is expected to be a student as he should go to school for an education and not merely to participate in atlctics; that he should like the game and if he doesn't to quit, and that he should be willing to cooperate and Jive up to the training rules laid down by his coach. To the fan Lcrcw stressed one oil- important point: "Be a booster rather than a knocker. If you can't boost, then don't knock." BITS HERE AND THERE. H. P.
