I-- PAGE SIXTEEN THE DAILY COTmiER, CONNELLSVILLE. PA. FRIDAY, JANUARY 28, 193S. Basketball ORLD Basketball . Sportoriab By JOHN U.

Seems like just the other day .that Mrs Swopo wanted to pm our ears back because we "referred to her mister as "an old man. 1 John plans tq play bacscball regularly.

Jimmy Winfoid, formerly of Scottdale, pitcher transferred to thi Houston Buffs of the Texas League -by the St. Louis Cardinals, may retire from the game instead of ro- ,, porting to the Hcdbird farm this spring "It all depends on my health nnd the alight matter of salary," hi says "Also I am figuring on going into the restaurant business with a friend of mine in Meeker. If it looks like a better proposition than Texas League salary I'll stay with It" Our guess, however, is tha r Winford will go to Texas, "rcgusted 1 as he might be.

Toko this tip- The Southwest Conference teams will be the hottest thing in the land next fall Those a'r- mindcd Texas elevens will lay down the heaviest and deadliest aerial barrage in football history, and the 1938 schedules will give them a chance to put on their fireworks from coast to coast. The passing came of the Southwestern teams--S. M. U., Texas, Rice, T C U , Texas A M., Baylor and Arkansas--has been tough enough for outside teams to stop in the past but the National football rules committee gave the boys from the cotton and cow territory on extra axe to swing when they altered the forward pass rule * The new rule permits the passing team to have four forwards inconv plcte in the end zone In 1838, whereas only one was allowed in 1937 without the loss of tho ball. Under this change the aerial game of the Southwestern teams will be 'ust as deadly inside thj opponent's 20-y.ird line as it Is In midflcld. Under the 1937 code the defensive team xoroly had to worry about passes in Taring territory after one pass was incomplete In the end zone. The defense could be set to stop a running attack ps scarcely ever did a quarterback want to risk loss ot the ball on second or third down with an incomplete pass In tha end zone. All that 1$ changed now. The offensive team can flre away with four straight passes into the end zone and not lose the ball until the regulation numbci of downs have been used up. Even If the rules committee hacin'l made this change in the forward pass rule, tha Southwest Conference teams would have been hot as a firecracker anyway. Most of them junior and sophomore teams last year, and they are all coming up to 1838 equipped with the greatest collection of passers any one conference ever boosted. BITS HERE AND THERE Chuck Welsh of the Somerset i Daily American rakes Coach Hubicsak of Bedford High for his alleged -indecent remmks to his own sqund and goes on to say "that Somerset is better off without having opponents of that type. 'Never before In , all our experience with scholastic "athletics have we heard such a. stream of profanity and invectives directed at players, from the rowd- -icst sideline spectators as Coach - Hubicsak used in directing his _t*am." is one of Chuck's mild para" graphs of a chastising that ran two- Continued on Page Seventeen GERMAN TO FIGHT JOHN HENRY UWIS ON MONDAY NIIGHT Special to Tho Courln. PITTSBURGH, Jan. 23 --Emll Scholz, German heavyweight who fights John Henry Lewis in the mam even here at Motor Square Garden, next Monday night, arrived in Pittsburgh direct from Boston, accompanied by his manager, Johnny Buckley and by Lou Broulllnrd, former welterweight and middleweight champion ot the world Scholz chased Max SchmelUng all around Germany, trying ot get match with the former champion. He then derided to take Buckleys offer and come to America, figuring tha he might be able to force hlmsel: Into the heavyweight picture by licking the outstanding American big fellows In meeting John Henry Lewis Scholz is taking on a fighter who Is about the toughest opponent any man could ask for He is so tough that Joe Louis, SchmelUng, Boer or any of the rest of that crew don't care for any of his game.

The Norwegian swan of the ice Preliminary Game Ends in Tie; Cokers, However, Had Won II To the hundreds of spectators who watched the Cokcr Jayvecs battle the Scottdule Reserves Tuesday c\t- nlng in a thrill-packed preliminary to the Conncllsvillc-Scottdalc Section 0 clash, it v, as apparent that the game ended in a 31-34 deadlock, after two extra periods had been played. However, after a careful scanning of the rule book, it was indicated that the local Jayvees had won the gamo in the first extra period. Here's the way It happened: At the end of regulation playing time, the teams were tied at 28-28 An extra period was ordered played and during that time the locals scored three points while the Millers got two It was diimcd that in order to win one team must be ahead by two points and Insisted another extra period should be played. Rather than delay the gamo unnecessarily, the second period was plaed which resulted in * 34-34 \ erdict. A check on the rule shows that If at the end of the first extra period 8 team is leading by one point, that club is the winner However, If the teams ire tied another period is to be plnjcd and the team scoring the first two points be Immediately declared tho victor. Only two overtime periods are permitted and if tho necessary two points have not been made, then the gome remains a tie The line-ups G F Pts __ 2 1 5 0 3 Cokey TayveM Mansbcrgcr, f _ Willard, f Soisson, c McCoy, g Dennis, g McMullen, f Campbell, f Landymorc, g _ Sharp, g _ ,, Jones, g _ -- Totils 12 10 3-1 Non-sconng substitutes -- Logan, Le\us Reed and Pcrrus whose secret is almost limitless stamina hoi requested tho movie company to rip her contract unless directors permit her standardized working hours instead ot a strain that last deep Into the night.

Youngwood Five Goes to Leisenring No. 1 Gym In Section 10. NORWIN PLAYS AT SCOTTDALE Connellsville High dribblers will open the last half of their W. P. L A. L schedule tonight by playing host to the Joannette quintet in Section 9 as the clan ol Bill Doldc strives to improve the showing made during the first round of competition. The Orange and Black won but three out of seven in the opening round, losing to Grcensburg, unbeaten to date, Johnstown, Norwin and Latrobc. Three were expected but Latrobo stopped AUie Luczak and whipped the Cokers. Tho locals hope to got off to a good start at toe expense of Jconnctte and then improve their standing. Scottdale will also be at ho-ne, meetinfi a strong Norwin club, tied with the Flood City lor runner-up position, while Mount Pleasant invades Grecnsburg and Johnstown goes to Latrobc. The Jawns ua\e had thrco narrow escapes at Connellsville, Scottdalc and Mount Pleasant but managed to get In under tho wire, and Latrobc probably will be out'to avenge the trouncing received at Johnstown. At the same time Dunbar Township, pace setter in Section 10, will make another stand at tho Leisenring No. 1 gymnasium, playing host to Youngwood, one of thiee clubs tied for second place. The Red and Black upset the railroaders in the season's opener and will be determined to annex both ends of the scries. Other games find Derry Township at Llgonler and East Huntingdon at Derry.
