EIGHT TTT 1 : DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA THURSDAY, FEBRUARY Ib, Wtt Basketball THE Basketball PAROCHIALS ANNEX FIRST LEAGUE GAME QPORTORIALc: *s By JOHN H WHOR1C, Sports Ed-tor VX TACKLES, LANDS CARP THEN TREES FISH C A Encimei of Pittsburgh relates the following article in the Pi nnsyl- tann Angles ' Williarr Baltik, a young high school lid who played football for the Mount Pleasant High School, and resides at Resei\oir street, in Mount Pleasant, uas swimming at the Biidgeport Dam in Mount Pleasant. H' dived into the water and collided uith one of its finny inhabitants Mr Balak stiucfc out for Mr Fish and tackled hin, with Mr Fish diving for the bottom and trjmg to score a ^ouch-down for the nome team. But Mr Balak also -\ anted to score a touchdown he stiff-armed him and caught him under the gill After a furious struggle, Balak, being a husky iootball player scored a touchdown, by coming up w th a loige size carp, fumlj gripped under the gill. After the carp was measured and ·weighed (31 inches long, weight lev- pounds) he was returned to the watei to be lured by a more gentle fisher- ma* 1 with an appetizing doughball, insleid of tackled by a rugged bruising football player" , PRO GRID RULE CHAN'GES j Rules committee of the National Professs onal Football League, meeting in Chicago, partially adopted the new college foiwaid pass regulation and endorsed a measure designed to prevent "ttaiy "injuries" in the closing seconds of play. The six recommendations are. 1. Ineligible pass leceivers touching a p-ss at or behind the line of scrimmage shall result in the loss of down and 15 yards from the point of the previous down 2. A pass striking ai ineligible player beyond the line of scummage shall result m loss of ball at the point of the previous down 3. The referee shall permit only one additional time out for injuries in the last two minutes of the second half without penalty 4 Ineligible receivers must remain on the line of scrimmage until a pass has been thrown. Violation shall cause 15-ard penalty, and loss of down from point of previous down 5. A kickofT, touched by a member ot the receiving team, which then rolls out of bound, shall be put m play 15 yards in from the spot where it crossed the sideline. 6. On a kickoff, the mound for a ball shall not exceed three inches in height. Orplieum Lassies Trip Star Junction The Orpheum lassies defeated Star Junction quintet by a 23-19 score.

Yourg Billy Conn has matched into the ranks of the light heavyweights and when thiee more years of beefsteak and potatoes have put heft on his bones you arc likely to see him fighting for Joe Lou.s' heavyweight title, opines Ha'ry Fciguson, United Piess sports editoi . . Henry McLemo e, Today's Sports Pciuider, comments* "It is gratifying to lexrn that the diive to finarce the 1940 Ameiican Olympic team is coming along so well Wonder if the budget includes champagne for girl swimmers and headache powders for officials'* . Blackhead, a common disease of domestic poultry, has been discov ered in wild sage grouse by the Utah cooperative wildlife re- scaicn, dernonstrat.on and management unit supported by the American WiMhfe Institute. The disease attacks the intestines and liver of poultry The heads of diseased buds often become so dark colored as to be practically black, hence the common name for the ailment . . . The problems of recruiting and subsidizing will not be settled duimg the next century, according to Jock Sutherland \\ho has some football worries at the moment at Pitt. "If we are all living in 2049, we would be still faced with the same problem And this problem is--youve got to have good football players to win big garne c " The silent Scot--who has teen doing quite a great _fieal of talking of late--said that the- 1938 eleven wll be the last top-flight team at Pittsburgh for an "indefinite period" . . . Women gymnastics have been dropped from the 1940 Olympic program at Finland f Eddie McCloskev of Johnstown, former mayor there, said as the new personnel of the State Athletic Commission was announced (he was one of three removed)- "Boxing is 91 per cent on the level but westbng is the oppose. Tnat is not the fault of the wrestlers but due to a com- merciahred box office" SCOT CAGERS 'CONQUERORS OF L A T R O B E Greensburg, Section 9 Leader, Appears at Mill Town Tomorrow.
