I'AUE TWELVE. IT. DAILY COURIER, CONNETJ.RVn^LTJ. PA. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1939. Basketball Basketball By JOHN H. WHORIC, Sports Editor WHAT'S GOING ON IN HIGH SCHOOL CIRCLES Glassjport, this term's Class B W. P. I. A. L. grid king, and West Bethlehem Township have replaced Rostvavcr Township and Fayelte City on East Pike Run Township's 1939 football card, Coach Ralph Bevendge announced. The schedule follows: Sept. 15-16, West Bethlehem; Sept. 23, at California; Sept. 29-30, open; Oct. 7, at Jefferson; Oct. 14, Glass- poit; Oct. 20, Centerville; Oct. 27, Bentleyvil1r; Nov. 3, at Ellsworth, -Nov. 10, at East Bethlehem . . . W. P. I. A. L. wrestling committee meets Friday night at Dormont to draw up plans for the annual mat tournament at Waynesburg College March 11 and 32 ... East Washington defeated " Peters, 26 to 24, in Section XIX in a hectic scrap after the winners had ' received a note from Cecil Eager, star " forward, ill in a hospital, telling them he was pulling for them and urging them to give their brst exhibition. The team resolved to do right by Cecil and came through with a win . . . The axiom of being a good neighbor doesn't mean a thing in the world of sports. Derry Township, in knocking off its neighboring borough. Derry, quintet killed that club's chances to figure in the Section 13 pennant. A xvin would automatically have given Derry Borough a deadlock for first place with Ligonier but the unexpected setback put the flag in Ligomer's lap . . . Uniontown High has booked Kiskl Prep cagers at home March 1 and have started negotiations for a series with Redstone, Section 15 pennant winners, in a determined eflfoit to get some kind of a consolation prize . . . President Bill Evans of the W. P. I. A..L. spaeking at Redstone Township High's grid banquet, said the suspended county schools should forget about their parole and "all obey the rules as prescribed in the league." Bill Kern, Carnegie Tech coach, stressed importance of training. He said he preferred an intelligent athlete with a little less poundage for his teams. BITS HERE Alfo THERE John McGlynn of Pittsburgh has been named superintendent of the golf course at Sunnehanna Country Club near Johnstown. Calvin Stutzman, former groundskeeper is the assistant. . . Colonel Matt Winn, 78, predicts the best race in the history of the Kentucky Derby this year. . . Billy Conn and Melio Bettina may fight May 12 in Madison Square Garden for light heavyweight honors. . . . April 18 has been set as the date of Jack Roper's "execution" in Los Angeles by Jbe Louis. Maybe it was a coincident that the flght will come on the 32nd anniversary of the San Francisco earthquake for Louis' first West Coast title defense. . . The familiar song of the tiny cricket, which is less than an inch long, can be heard for a mile. The creature makes this sound, not by rubbing his legs together, as is commonly believed, but by rubbing has rough wings together over his head. Only the male crickets are musical. The females make no sound. And, because the females have ears in their forelegs, many believe the males are singing to their mates when they produce their strident notes. . . It is regrettable that the Eastern Intercollegiate Basketball Conference, organized seven years ago, will disband at the end of this season. It was one of the best :n the nation and included Temple, Pittsburgh, Carnegie Tech, Georgetown, Penn State and West Viigmia. . . San Francisco Seals are depending on a third DiMaggio, Dominic, to keep them one step ahead of the sheriff. There was a time when the fancy prices paid by the majors for Seal stars was so much profit but that was before Dr. Charles Henry Strub decided to fl- nance the Santa Anita race track. Now the sheriff has a bank mortgage on the ball park . . Lemons Solters, former Grindstone miner, signed a contract with Cleveland after taking a big cut. Last y,ear he held out for $18,000 -and finally tumbled for around $14,000 but this season will do well at $9,000. . . Curley Stebbins, former Pitt halfback, is going to take a whirl at pro football with Chicago Cards. . . One New York boxing writer reviewed the fistic situation thusly: "Maxie Baer is getting older, Tony Ga'.ento is getting fatter, Max Schmeling is getting worse and Joe Louis is getting better." .. Babe Ruth struck out 1,430 times during his | major league career. . .

Connellsville has invited the W. P. I. A. L. to hold its relay carnival at its new field after other schoolmen had urged the city to act as host for this new feature and there is every ! indication that the bid will be accepted. The Til-State Track Coaches Association some time ago had recommended the selection of Coker Stadium and will formally act on the matter at its next meeting. Coach Joseph A. Lerew is a member of the coaches association and of the league's track committee. While Fayette County Schoolmen's Club will not meet for some time, there is every reason to believe that the county program will be held at Coker Stad-um. The proposal to stage the trials on a Friday afternoon with the finals at night has been meeting with favor and it is believed that ' local officials would prefer such a setup os it would result in increased interest and attendance. Connellsville, always strong in the spring outdoor sport, is in demand for dual meets and the calendar finds the locals hooking up with Canonsburg m the first on April 15 after the interclass meet on April 11.

Huntingdon . Lou Ambers Will Try for Knockout In Friday's Bout By JACK CUDDY United Press StafI Correspondent. NEW YORK, Lou Ambers, the former lightweight king who has been a powder puff puncher since the tragic death of a ring opponent in 1936, will revert to knockout tact cs Friday night in his important 12- round brawl with Baby Arizmendi at Madison Square Garden. Manager Al Weill revealed that Ambers is determined to tag the bull- shouldered Mexican with the first knockout in Ai-izmendi's long career --a career that included _five battles with hammering Henry Armstrong. It will be the first time that Lar- luping Lou has crawled through tne ropes with the avowed intention of belting an opponent into the petunias since that night in 1930 when Tony Scnrpati died alter being knocked out by Ambers in the seventh round. Weill said there were two major reasons why the cream puft kid will try to Ko; . Ammendi (1) a knockout might force Henry Armstrong to defend his lightweight crown against Lou, (21 Ambers wishes to erase the stigma of that 10-rour.d draw to which Arizmendi held Ambers at Los i Angeles on June 7. laaieiuiH.mKii! isnum 20% More Non-Skid Mileage 35% Stronger Cord Body New Firestone developed cord construction a n d i m p r o v e d G u m - D i p p i n g process provide 35^6 stronger cord body making possible use of thicker, deeper Gear-Grip tread for 20% longer mileage.
