TUESDAY, JANUARY IS, 103S. THE DAILY COtTIttER, CONNEL-LSVILL,!!;, FA. PAGE FIVE. Basketball THE S Basketball Sportoriais By JOHN H. WHOKIO Sports Editor N -« KEN REID'S APPOINTMENT HAILED BY SPORTSMEN Selection of Kenneth A. Reid of Connellsvllle, resigned from the State Fish Commission, as executive secretary of the Izaak Walton League of America, has met with general approval of sportsmen here and far who feel that the new director is one of the most capable men In the i United States and that he will con-'' tribute much toward the league's program. Herbert Lee Watkins, who coveis wild life and like articles for the Pittsburgh Sun-Telegraph, voices an opinion that is shared by others who are familiar with the functions of the 'Valtomlcs. Watkins said that Reid's appointment has been hailed by sportsmen everywhere. Watkins wrote: "It was a thrill with which the sportsmen of Pennsylvania received the welcome news that Kenneth A. Reid of Conndlsville had been made the No. 1 angler of the United States. KAYO WIN IS FARR'S PLAN FOR FRIDAY Observers Say Tommy Only Playing Into Braddock's Hands EX-CHAMP'S AGE BIG HANDICAP "With Reid's ascendency to the executive secretaryship of the Izaak Walton League ot America, Pennsylvania may well be proud of a native son who forged himself to the front in a game, as you might call it, that really meant something. "Fish, streams and fishermen were not a hobby with Reid. In fact, he made all these things sort of an ideal, the realization ot which he not only applied his physical efforts, but his financial resources as well. "When you speak of Reid as s member ot the Board of Fish Commissioners you refer to him as an individual. When, on the other hand you refer to him as a fisherman you've got something. "All of us may recall that the new secretary ot the fisherman's league was a pioneer in the cause of stream pollution. Fighting shoulder - to - sho-.u'der with Senator Lonegran he was instrumental in putting over legislation at Washington that mean the salvation ot fish in Pcnnsylvanie and many another state's waters. "West Virginia owes our own Ken Reid a lot of thanks for the results he accomplished in, ridding the Mountain State of a lot of stream pollution. In fact, the Governor o that commonwealth congratulated Reid on his efforts to rid that state of a pernicious wattr hazard, th dumping of mine poisons into streams, which normally should have been the natural habitat of fish. "When we speak of Reid as a fish trman we mean Just that And when we say fisherman, we can include lole of talents under that category. Strange as it may seem, Reid not only angled for fish, but he made extensive study of the piscatorial domnn with one aim in view ... he loved the sport and being conscientious in that liking he went out of his way to provide a lot of nice sport not only for those of this generation, but for posterity. "Local and State sportsmen feel that in making Reid the head of. the angler's department, the anglers of the State may rest assured that this branch of the outdoors Is in safe hands." COKERS DOING GOOD JOB Despite three consecutive setbacks in the W. P. I. A. L., ConnellsvUIe has acquitted itself with credit in Sectio^i 9. The reversals were not unexpected as Johnstown, Greensburg and Norwin have some ot the finest basketball talent in Wosxern Pennsylvania, most of it veter»n stuff from last year. Both Norwin, the defending champion, and Greensburg, disqualified as the sectional winner because of ineligibilty of one boy, have virtually the same teams, t v Johnstowns was not in the league last season but has practically the entire squad back and Coach Foxy Miller can shoot in as many as 12 tested players. While we would be glad to sec the Cokers topple some of licsc veteran quintets, defeat at their hands won't prompt us to borrow Brother Crawford's pet expression that we're very unhappy about it All anyone can ask of the Orapgc and Black athletes is the best they can give. This we believe they have been doing since the season got under way. If their best is not sufficient to win, we must doll our hats to their foe. BITS HERE AND THERE Hay Y. Henry, Duqucsnc Junior High principal and former Coker star and later producer of consistent Duke floor champions, has been named president of the Duquesnc Business Men's Association . . . Six coaches of the Eastern Intercollegiate Basketball Conference agree that the ultimate champion will suffer at least two defeats this year . . . "Despite being tailed by three local players, the swift passing, speedy, lanky Coker forward (Allle Luczak) faked 'his way around his opponents to chalk up six goals and four fouls, commented the Grecnsburgh Morning Review after the ConnellsvUIe game. "The Grcensburg floormen were unable to prevent the scoring of points by Luczak, star of the one- man ConnellsviMe dub who regis- ^ tcred 16 of his team's 21 points" .. . Hugh Bradley, New York Post sports editor, says that the only coaches sure of their jobs are those who arc so new to success that they haven't had a chance to make a failure of SUMMIT, N. J., Jan. 18.--Observers at Tommy Farr*i camp today ex- rcssed fear that the Welsh heavyweight is training wrong for Fnday night's 10-round flght with former champion Jim Braddock. Farr, an excellent boxer who always has been regarded as a light puncher, seems suddenly to have developed a "knockout complex." In sparring sessions he revealed thnt he s preparing to kayo Braddock, rather than merely try to outpoint him. Joe Jacobs, manager of Max Schmellng, reflected the consensus among ringside experts when he said, 'Earr is making a big mistake in training this time. He's getting ready to go in there and maul with Braddock--instead of trying to out-box him. He's leaving himself wide open most of the time, while trying to stagger his partners. That style will play right into Braddock's hands." Virtually every fight follower at Madame Bey's farm remarked on the sharp contrast between Fair's training style today and that which he exhibited at Long Branch, N. J., while preparing for his brilliant stand against champion Joe Louis last August 30. At Long Brand], he polished his boxing. But at Summit he is concentrating on slugging. He dro-.c two of his three sparmates to the floor with "Sunday" punches and belted the third almost groggy on his feet. Everyone agreed that Fair appeared in far better physical condition f and mental prior to the Loui scrap. Now that his difficulties witS former manager Ted Brondribb have been settled, the Tonypandy terror displays more eagerness in his work He weichs about 208 pounds now and will pare off four more before weighing in at Madison Square Garden on Friday. Braddock is expected to scale about 106%. Joe Jacobs emphasized that Braddock is 32 years old. And thnt he may not have the stamina of 23- year-old Fair. Hence, it would be smarter for Farr to set u fast pact and resort to all his boxing akill in trying to wear down Jersey James Instead, Farr seems to be planning a savage assault on Braddock--which will leave tic Welshman open for Jim's dangerous punches. Braddock has one of the best left hands in the business and a right thnt was good enough to put Louis on the floor in the first round of Ihclr Chicago brawl on June 22. F.irr will take a big gamble on getting knocked ou or of being cut up so badly that the fight may be stopped. Of course Far realizes' that a kayo victory ove Jim would be a fine feather In hi their positions .

Nail Polish of Rival Team's Colors Result in Woman Fan Being Ejected From Grid Game o- By JOHN U. TERRELL United Press Staff Correspondent. SAN FRANCISCO, Jan IB.--Her finger nail polish was n nice pastel shade called "robin red," and just tho thing lor sporU wear, Mrs. Alta Moore, 23, told the jury, yet she was ejected bodily from the football game because it happened to be Ihc color of the rival team. Mrs. Moore is suing James E. Addicott, principal of Polytechnic High School, for $10,000 damages Addicott has a discriminating taste lor reds. The red that goes with the black in Polytechnic school colors, for instance, thrills him to the marrow of his bones. But the word he used to describe Mrs. Moore's pastel, she said, was "slaughterhouse." It was unfortunate Mrs. Moore hnd taken her scat in the Polytechnic students' cheering section. Addicott was there, nnd .ill ot them were seeing red (robin shade)--too much of it--on the footbnll }eises of the rivnl Lowell High School tcnm out on the field, before Mrs Moore sat dow n nnd spread our her nngern.uls It was lost November 6, during the annual biR R.ime between the iUiools. Lowell's colors .iro red (robin shade) and white, and Lowell's team was lending. Practically all nnil polishes are red. Mrs. Moore told the 12 jurors, two of whom were women," but zomc is redder. "This Is russet red.** she mid, holding up her hnndb to exhibit the proper shade for courtroom \%e«r. "It's not quite tis bright ns the shade I wore thnt day at the game But the shade then wasn't nenrly as bnd as he snid it wns. He c.illcd it slnughtcrliouse. It u.m renlly robin." Addicott was flanked by 15 Polytechnic teachers imd students as well as two jttomcjs v.hcn he cimo to court to defend nimsclf They will have n chnncc to tell the jury thnt Mrs. Moore committed nn Indiscretion like invadinc a pen of wild bulls with her glisten ng robin red hands. Mrs. Moore's attorney. Jerome Schiller, said the damages were nskcd not for the cnuse but the manner of Mrs Moore's ejection from the R.imc. He snid that his client WTS "assaulted, mauled, ill-trc.itccl nnd wounded, and that ns a result she suffered grcnt bodily harm." Of! the record, Addicott said Hint Mrs. Moore «Ans ejected "good-nat- uredly," Dial she uas in the rootinc section where she did not bclonjf, nnd the Polytechnic rooting section where certainly, robin red no plnco. Mrs. Moore snid thnt she used to go to Polytechnic, thnt Addicott was her principal, but she wns not prejudiced by that fact, and thnt furthermore she wns nlwnys loj al to Polytechnic's teams. She snid it took « policeman to get her cont for her, which wns left on her sent nfter her ejection. Addicott summoned a policcmnn to have her taken off, she said, when she left her scat to Ret n drink of W. P. I. A. League Summaries SECTION 9 Games Tonight. Jeannctte at Norwin.
