This contest was equally as exciting and in some respects was much like tho previous struggle had beoti. It was not until, .the latter part of tho final quarter that; Corner outfit forged into the lead and finished with a throo-point advantage. The victory was duo to tho stellar playing and accurate shooting of Gene Floto, who through his own effort*' counted lor 10 points in that last period, getting six of them from the foul .line. Bursts of applause greeted the youth as he registered six out of six attenvpts from the free zone, almost in succession. Tho visiting quintet fought das-per- ately in the w a n i n g of play to retrieve ita lost advantage but It was a hopeless light. The South Sldors realizing that but a short time was loft to play displayed a calnmefia that was plainly discernible. They passed the. ball, with incredible swiftness and accuracy and many timos in those last few minutes the ovai careened oil the hoop w h e n it seemec, like a sure score.

According to reliable Information received there ia ample reason, to believe that Cramor, who directed the team last season, will a.^iu he given this assignment. Cramer operated the l*H rooter «o enoceae fully Uiat many l^cal fans are requeeting that he be cl osen for another term and ii was faid that thie popular request may be fsilflllod by the National League Club ov/nera. Harry knows tho ina and outs o£ baseball Erom th© standpoint, of a fan and ae mogul. Hte vas . knowtetlge will mijiko him a valuable addition if the CardinaUi place him tn tho porma- notit roll. Th* Rickey j ogimo would make no mistake In retailing- the popular diamond follower lot only for the 1830 drlvo Irwt for succeeding canipjilgtiB as well. The Cardinals have not a5 yflt mado public their appointee ptssioly deferring this for several weeias at least. However, thoeo in the "krow" aro predicting that Harry will gtt tbe a8Bij;n- mont and wo hope that oar congraJ:u- lationo will not he znisp aced. Cramer «aid that he w-mld give up the diamond activity wl:en the 1JI29 reason eatnc to a close 7-ut local fol- lowem have leen prevailing upon him to accept the position if it is offered him and it has been lef.rned that a fow communications liav-i heen f«r- wared to Branch Ilickej , vice-preBi- dont and business manager.

Coach Shearer Striving to "CocKy" Attitude Out of Crack Outfit, SEWICKLEY IS FOE TUESDAY The general feeling ths.t scholastic athletics is a paying proposition ie given a rude set back in t ve following excerpt from the "lle-l Peppers" column of the Brownsville Telegraph: "Gener«.l apathy of f; toward High School sports at Payettc City may be the mean^ of loss of .ill kinds of scholastic sportc in that comtnanfty. School officials declared that the basketball games are inci rring a deficit on the home floor such that the sport will have to be give a up. In a recent game the receipt*- were just about half the amount the referee had to be paid with nothing t j take care of 1ha rental of the flooi and other expensed incident to the floor game. The Fayetto City team wilt go through with two more jfames on ks schedule, thoao with Belle Vernon lligli. Tho first w!U b playaii Marc i 4 on the home floor wltli the eeeoid on the Bolle Vernon floor March ". Whether any other game« wiijl b« played or whether sports will bo ejoneorcd In future years will depend entirely on the fans whose support Is absolutely necceaary." Tho strong 1 Belle Vernon baekcteers ·will appear at the Leisenring No. 1 gymneaiuin on Friday evening to oppose the Dunbar Townehip High School quintet which in occupying: at this time first position in Section XII, "W. P. I. A. League. While Bruce Shearer's boy« are expected to come through "with a win, having ?a8lly mastered the l!«!lle« at. that place eome time ago ttio invaders cannot be taken too litfMJy. The "cockineea" of the Hod and Black dribblers nearly cost an exhibition game at layette City the other night and there's much likelihood that the skipper will BOO to it thai, the team (foes not regard any foe as "easy meat." Dunbar has whipped 12 opponents in 13 n-tarts and the only revereal was by a single jwint whj^h lia«5 served to make D. T, rather "cocky." The practice aeseions give every indication that the mentor wants the boyr-i to lose this attitude. Tho Belle Version game will be a trying one and will have much bearing on the title status a*j an upset for Dunbar may mean the loss of the gonfaVon. Unquestionably the battle at Se- wlckley Township neit Tuesday evening, the final one in the circuit, provided a tie doee not result, "will settle the pennant dtepute.
