WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1939. THE DATT..Y COURIER.. CONNKLiLSVlLibK, PA. PAGE SEVEN. Basketball Basl -.etbalL ROSTRAVFR F 1 YV/kJ I rV/^. V Lii IX LL Q P O R T O R I A L S **J By JOHN H. WHORIC, Sports Editor +*tf AT THE END OF TRAIL I Lou Novarro of Uniontown who has been doing quite a bit or fisti- cuffing seems to have reached the end of his trail and is going to get out o£ the game for good, ii he has not definitely decided he should wise up and get out. Lou took, a terrific beating in a Fairmont, W. Va., show at the hands of John Henry King last week and the manner in which he was outclassed gave rise to belief: that he'd not make Fairmont again. Lou likes to fight. He's a swinging time but ean't go anywhere against a smooth boxer. The Uniontown boy has been absorbing a little loo much punishment in his recent appearances and some fistic followers believe he shouldn't be slaughtered as he has been the case. It's a smart boxer who knows when he's had enough. BITS HERE AND THERE "After a big year, a baseball player raises a big rumpus for some extra fodder in his monthly envelope but how ho howls when the club cuts it a penny or two after he's had a terrible year," writes a reader, who adds that Paul Wancr and Gus Suhr of the Pirates are among those who should read this . . . Larry MacPliail, Brooklyn Dodgers' mouthpiece, commented: "As the clubs get ready to go South, it looks to me like the National League is made up of seven great big ifs and the Phillies. I can make a good case for any one of Die seven clubs except the Phillies. That is, provided all their ifs turn out the right way." He considers the Cubs the favorites »nly because they won the pennant last year. He believes the Pirates haven't improved any. "The Pirates blew the pennant last year when they should have won it. Jf they couldn't win It then, how can they do it this year. I see no improvement in Traynor's club," WSE his observation . . . If he is granted a license to ride on the metropolitan circuit this season, Don Mcade, Jockey No. 1, will make his New York debut during the Jamaica meeting in April. He hns been restored lo good standing in Florida after having been ruled oft the tracks for two years . . . The National League adopted a resolution to stop tampering with holdouts. Bill Terry of the Giants had been quoted as saying he was interested in giving cash and players for Van Lingle Mungo, Brooklyn pitcher, who has not signed because of a pay dispute. Comments like Terry's will be banned hereafter ... New York with 540 leads all states in number of high schools sponsoring football. Pennsylvania is second with 478 ... Barnstorming days of the big leaguers in pro football are over. The National League has sanctioned only one post-season game, the current tilt between the champions and the all-stars in Los Angeles. Other exhibitions have been ordered out . . . Since Billy Conn, the Pittsburgher, says he won't fight any more middleweights, he's almost a cinch to take on John Henry Lewis or v Melio Beltina at Forbes Field this'summer .. . Temple is to bo known as the Swans instead at the Owls in honor of their coach, Fred Swan . . . War Admiral is a 8-U choice in the Widoner handicap . . . Fritzic Zivic is certain to get a title crack at Henry Armstrong . . . Dizzy Dean is being groomed for radio's presentation o£ the baseball classic, "Elmer the" Great" . . . First vanguard of Pittsburgh basebaUers start for sprinc training on February 23. " 'I ain't bragging but I know how io fight. You can't fight for 20 years and not learn nothin'," said John Henry Lewis in an interview. He must have learned something the night of January 25 that he had forgotten to pick up in the two decades . he's been fighting . . . Dauber, 1338 Preakness winner, has been withdrawn from the Santa Anita handicap because of a leg injury that may mean the end of the thoroughbred's racing days . . . Charley Hurley, Pittsburgh battler, lias undergone a hand operation. It had not healed lo treatment after an injury . . . Adventurer, expensive full brother to Discovery in the Vandcrbllt stable, Is described as one of the best looking colts on the American turf. Van- r.urbilt paid 20 grand for him at Saratoga . . . Heine Meine, former Pirate pitcher, has been named president of St. Louis County Tavern Owners Association . . . Wild Bill Hallahan will pitch for Minneapolis this summer . . . Dutch Ruether, Los Angeles skipper, suys Rip Russell, formerly of the Angc'.s, is a cinch to beat out Rip Collins and Phil Cavarretta for the Cubs first base job . . , Sam Crawford, former major league outfielder who umpired in the Paca- fic Coast League last year, is driving a truck in Los Angeles for 18 bucks a week . . . Joyner (Jo-Jo) %Vhile, former Tiger outfielder, said ho has decided to quit baseball and devote all of his time to a job in a Detroit auto plant . . . Burlcigh Grimes, former pitcher and Dodger manager, testified in his divorce suit in Union, Mo., that his wife had told him she had been married only once before when, In fact, she had been married three times . . . Notie Brown, who was "knocked" out by Tony Galdnto in Detroit, indicated he's retiring from the fight game to give all of his time to operation of his restaurant in Washington . . . Players with the New York Celtics are reported tu be averaging $200 weekly for their basketball barnstorming . . . - It Chicago quits the Big Ten, Pitt is supposed to take its place. Nebra- GO IN FOR FOX HUNTING A minister or anybody else can enjoy fox hunting, says Rev. A. M. Parrish of Pcducah, Ky,, who finds "spiritual refreshment" in the sport. Dr. Parrish, a Baptist minister, is one o£ the country's few tox hunting preachers and perhaps the only one who is a master of hounds. He describes fox hunting, which is growing in popularity in Fayetle county as well as other sections ol Southwestern Pennsylvania, ns "the cleanest, most wholesome sport, n wonderful form o£ exercise," adding: "H takes your mind off your work and provides L E I S E N R I N G QUINT SHOWS POOR STRIDE Cowan Finds Range to Score 11 Field Goals And Two Fouls.
