Sus- quchanna University, recommended to the Association o£ College Presidents of Pennsylvania, tha't the "football tramp" be barred from colleges and the grid sport be given to "those who play lor the fun of it," i Introducing four suggestions for "cur- Ing the evils of intercollegiate athletics" as: 1. Football be played by those who play for the fun of it. 2. Institutions enforce the same scholastic standards on football players as on the rest of the student body. 3. That we get rid of the "football tramp" by making it impossible for a player once registered on a college varsity to transfer and play on another college varsity. 4. That we form our schedules with colleges of similar philosophy . in regard to" the conduct of intercollegiate athletics. One fact none deny is that college football to endure must be self-supporting. Too, the grid sport usually pays the freight for other athletics in colleges and schools; __ The sports curriculum did not become broadened to its present scope - until football | paved the way financially. To cripple the grid game through some of the j suggested torn-foolery would meanj that all sports would suffer. . , If "these athletic deflationists arc! sincere about -it, why not go .at it "open and above board" by. budgeting so_much for..the various sports from the general finances and then open gates _o£. stadiums ~to the pub-i lie--without charge: But as long a; these officials continue to demand $2,~$3, $4 or more for a single foot. ball"-ticket, there must be a more liberal attitude toward the fans who loot the bill.

The controller's report showed that Treasurer H.

Although the decisions com, mittee gave it a reprimand and did not vote a suspension, the action remains to be acted upon by the league ns a unit. Usually the committee's recommendations arc approved but there's no telling what will happen If the charges create an offensive odor. F i r s t Methodists and Christians Also Win in Y-Church League. THREE GAMES THIS EVENING Ken O'Dca Signs Contract. CHICAGO, Feb. 3.--Ken O'Dea, who is expected to take most ot the catching load alt Leo (Gabby) Hart- nctt in 1838, returned his signed contract to the Chicago Cubs today. O'Dea, a lefthanded hitter, rolled up an average of .300 in 220 times at bat last season. Church of the Brethren captured a thrilling 35-29 contest from Daw- sr i M. E. passers Tuesday evening to climb a notch in the Y-Church League. ' Only two points separated the teams in the bitterly fought struggle until the final minutes when the victors cut loose with a pair ot successful long shots. Don Blasey led the First M. E. to a 41-36 victory over the United Presbyterian counting six Held goals and two fouls for a total of 14 points. Hart and Miller shared U. P. honors, caging nine points each. Porrus and H. Brooks completely dominated play as the Christians smothered the First Presbyterians under a 49-27 count. The winners took the lead from the beginning and were never headed.

Fish and Game Head Calls On Sportsmen to Protest Cummings Firearms Act By I*. B. WEISGERBEK Pre-Udont ConnellbvlHc Chapter of Fj*y- ctto'County Fish and Game Association. The Connellsvillo Chapter of the Fayetto County Fish and Game Association wishes to warn lovers of the great outdoors, sportsmen, those who love to xisc the target ride and pistol, both indoors and out, and all others who possess firearms at home for the sole purpose of personal or property protection that the most asinine, most ridiculous piece of legislation ever to be presented to Congress is about to be acted upon by the House Ways and Means Committee. This is more familiarly known as the Cummings Firearms Act, written and sponsored by Homer S. Cummings, Attorney General of the United Slates, and is a direct and outright discrimination against them. If enacted it will provide that owners of firearms of all types shall be unduly forced to register the same with the Federal Government at a predetermined fee for each and every such arm in their possession. The owner of weapons will be obliged to be "forever marked" by having his photograph taken and his finger prints recorded, to be kept in a probable rogues' gallery, enabling Uncle Sa_m to keep an accurate check on the thug, the highway robber, the gunman and all vicious criminals from Public Enemy No. 1 down. It is impossible to believe these criminals will register their sawed- off shotguns, machine guns in violin cases and other weapons. We have learned by experience that they have ways and means of procuring and secreting all the arms they may require. Who will abide by and be affected by this proposed law? Just good Inw-abiding sportsmen and citizens not so classified. Thc act is a direct violation of the rights of millions of right to bear arms under the stitution. Therefore we appeal to you to contact Robert L. Doughton, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, House Office Building, Washington, D. C., asking him to use his influence find seek the cooperation of his fellow committeemen to frustrate this freak bill in committee, so that it may not harass the sportsmen at large. Farmers, sportsmen, other Interested persons, act at once. Drop a line to Chairman Doughton and im- preis upon him the absurdity of such a law. We, the Conncllsvillc Chapter of the Fayette County Fish and Game Association, have already done this. We might add we need your help, and also your membership in the tesociationjin conserving your sport, both afield and on the stream. The small contribution asked, together with your personal influence and assistance, will further that which we all cherish, the great outdoors. Goldenson Vanities Will Come Here Monday Evening The famous Goldenson Vanities, for the past ten years Pittsburgh's outstanding girls basketball team, will play the Shamrocks at the Armory Monday night, February 7. Thc game will start promptly at 7:45 o'clock and will feature a doubleheader in which the Casey Club will clash with Tarcntum in the second all-star attraction. The Vanities, often referred to as the "Celtics of girl quintets," have always been a big attraction when appearing in ConncllsvilJe.

Caverly, 60, claims the distinction ot being the Nation's premier woman hunter. For the 16th. straight year, the GO-ycar-oltl Albuquerque huntress brought back her deer alone and unaided. In one of the hardest fought games scm at the State Armory this .-.casoii, i thu Westinghouse baskctccrs annexed another triumph by nosing out the strong Jcannette Merchants, 40 to 38, Wednesday night. The local quintet flashed a brilliant passing attack that swept through the Jays' defenses but misdirected shots at the hoop wasted many scoring chances. The visitors ployed hard, clean ball throughout and never permitted the icemen to gain more than a six-point advantage at any time. The Fayctle county champs u-ied nine players and each figured in the scoring. Big Bill Miller, six-foot forward, garnered eight points to cop individual honors closely followed by Reed and Cartwright who tallied seven and six respectively. Saturday the Westinghouse team plays Hazel-Atlas No. 2 In a return game at Washington. Players are asked to be ot the Y. M. C. A. by D o'clock to make the trip.

Last year Miss DeMay defeated the local girls almost single handed by whizzing in six sensational field goals. The remainder of her supporting cast possess almost equal ability so that the Goldenson's can again be referred to as an all-star quintet. Latrobe Defeats Mount Pleasant By Three Points MOUNT PLEASANT, Feb. 3.-- Thc Ramsay High School basketball quintet lost to Latrobe here Tuesday night by the close score of 25-22. Thc lead established by the visitors during the first three periods proved too much of a handicap for Coach Ned Culler's lads to overcome in the final quarter though they tried gamely. Trailing by seven points as the last quarter started, the Bobcats held Latrobc's scorers to a lone Held goat while chalking up six points. The ability of the locals from the free zone kept the score close as visitors garnered 12 field goals against eight for Ramsay. Thc lineups: Mount Pleasant G. !·'. Pts.

The game wus fast and cxci'.ing to the large crowd ot loyal rooters that turned out to lend encouragement to Coach Earl Trump's proteges. The , quarter ended in a G-B deadlock but at half time the Owls managed to establish a two-point lead, 13-11. Exhibiting a marvelous defense in the third period, the Night Riders held the visitors to a lone point while finding the hoop to increase their lead to seven points. The Kittens cut loose with everything in the final stanza and long shots began to find their m;rk but though the Immaculate passers were outscored, the visitors were never able to close the gap.
