PAGE TBN- THE DAILY COURIER, CONNEL,LSV1L.LE, PA. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1038. Basketball Basketball Sportorials By JOHN H. WHOB1C Sports Editor SEEKS STATE REGULATION OF P. I. A. A. SPORTS Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association's board of control was to convene in Harrisburg today for its February meeting and repercussions were expected from the suggestion of Dr. Isaac Miles Wright, Allentown educator, that the State Department of Public Instruction absorb the P. I. A. A. Dr. Wright contended the association now under school officials authority had "reached the limit of its development" although "it has done a remarkable piece of work" in bringing "system out of chaos" in organizing State athletics. Dr. Wright's bombshell, voiced before the State School Directors' Association last week, declared "petty politics will be done away with" and COKER SWIMMERS BEAT CLAIRTON WOODRUFF IS 'BOXED', LAST IN MILLROSE Connellsville Olympic Champion Makes Inglorious Showing. CHUCK BEETHAM WINS 880 RACE By HENRY SUPER United Press Staff Writer. NEW YORK. Feb. 7.--Charley Bcctham, former Ohio State stai. the program "will be in the hands o f ! TM n "'"|: m . Ac col ° r: ?, £ men %vitb the proper vision and the highest ideals." The Allentown director, referring to school playoffs, said "it seems to me tha_t the contestants in the games received little if any consideration from the organizations running the championships. The P. I. A. A. seemed to have only one motive in . mind, mainly to collect sufficient money to pay its expenses for the yea^r. We always carried our full band and list of players to the number of 125 for each game and in return we received from the P. I. A. A. expenses for only some 13 men (to playoffs). Jt was only the selfishness of the management of the P. I. A. A. that would have devised such a system ... It seems to me that If. the P; T. A. "A. needs money to maintain its system it should come from dues paid by the members of the association and not by sacrificing our schoolboy athletes." Action to slow up high school basketball, recommended by the State school directors and the Lan- c'aster county school directors, w to be discussed while the question of Sharnokin High's status will be cleared, the school having been found to have violated eligibility rules. York and Kingston arc under suspension. While we share the view of the Allentown educator that the P. I. A. A. has been guilty of mistakes, we disagree that greater strides can be made under State supervision, especially the argument that "petty politics" would be eliminated when the bureau itself comes under the heading of "plums" for the party in control. Officials governing the association »rc in constant touch with athletic activities and the accomplishments to date tell the story of whether Ihe program is in the hands of men vith "proper vision and the highest ideals." More can be done, we grant, but the I. I. A. A. has become a fixture only because it has carefully weighed and studied every problem before taking definite action as it has sought to avoid mistakes. But those who comprise the league are human beings and there is an adage "too err is human." That there have been mistakes in the past is proof that efforts have been made to place the league on a higher plane. Too, there's no guarantee that a State bureau, itself comprised of humans, will not likewise continue fo make errors. BITS HEUE ANT) THERE Georges, unbeaten in Section 14 spilled Point Marion, 21-18, but not until some fisticuffing was injected into the fray. McClain, Rbdstonc guard, needed a clamp to close a bac cut over his eye as Republic lost to South Union, 22-19 . . . Game Commission announced it would not enroll additional students at its training school near Brookville, Jefferson county, because 25 members of the present graduating class March 15 "will be sufficient to fill all vacancies this year in the game protection personnel" . . . Success ot modern day football teams depends more on the team's mental attitude than upon its ability to play, declares Joel. Sutherland, Pitt grid coach. "Some ot the best players I've ever coached were men green to football until they played in college, but players who had spirit," he said. Relaxation is a big help to a club preparing for a hard game . . . Ramsay High has won seven wrestling matches in a row. West Newton goes to Moun Pleasant Tuesday afternoon at ' o'clock and Tom Copeland's boys wil be out to make it No. 8 ... State Commissioner of Fisheries C. A French said the commission "is no advocating an increase in the fishing license." The board, he added, woult not be in favor of such a move, even if pressed by sportsmen, unless the increase was used solely for acquiring and creating additional fishing waters . . . You and I'll form a basketball team tomorrow, play two games, win them and then start issuing championship challenges. Some people have notions like that You own a gun? What uould a smart lawyer ask of a jury it It, duly licensed and registered In your name was found at the scene of a murder? You might have quite a job convincing a jury that the gun had been str'.en from your home. This Is one of the bad features of the firearms licensing bill in Congress. You should let your congressman Itnon you want the measure defeated. 1 Is asinine to even piesume that Uangsters can-be stopped Irom pos- itssiris weapons by such a law Stella Walsh, Olympic track star, plans to retire after 1940.

Meanwhile, Burns, Brown and Beetham waged a savage battle for he lead, Beetham slamming out in 'rent going into the straight-awpy at :hc sta'rt of the final lap and incrcas- ng his lead of five yards by the time he hit the tape. Woodruff, noted for his weakness at getting back tho lead once he is arnmed out, tried time and again to Hill up from the outside but always ic was boxed. Those extra efforts cost him considerable energy and he was unable to match the leaders' swift pace.
