Boat People Gadget-Crazy NEW YORK, Feb. 23.--A quick jaunt through the 34lh National motorboat show disclosed two outstanding facts, to wit, (1) It's a woman's world, even on the water, and (2) the boat people ar_e gadget- crazy. You have only to look at the marine bathroom and kitchen de- [ partments to realize the first, and a I visit .to the accessory, or brass and croir.ium, department will drive home the second . Ail in all--from the main f.oor of Grand Central Palace where the big luxury boats are drawn up to the third-floor cruise office presided over by a beautiful blonde--it's a glittering show. Attendance to date is 16 per cent ahead of 1038, an all-time record- Miskinis Named Director of Play Beginning March 14. NEW DIVISION IS INAUGURATED Connellsville's second annual gold medal nmatuer basketball tourna- [ ment will be conducted at the Armi ory March H, 15,16 and 17. Dates and ] preliminary plans were made public today by Waller Miskinis o£ the Con- nellsvilie Recreation staff who will again serve as tournament director for this feature event which is sponsored locally by the Connellsville j \ Tournament Association and nationally by the Central States Basketball Association of Indianapolis, Ind. Mr. Miskinis has been appointed a member of the national board by the Central States Association in recognition oi! the successful tourney which he conducted last year. The ap- breaker, and everybody--yachtsmen, j pointment was recently announced by racing officials, boat builders and j Wayne Emmelmann, National direc- marir.e engine makers--believe 1939 I tor of the gold medal tourneys, will be one of the best pleasure ! A new division hos been added for boating years in history. Everything is streamlined, chromium seems to be invading the erstwhile sacrosanct province of brass and yesterday's wooden seats have given away to overstuffed leather, even in the smallest runabouts. In the engine department the range is from an. eight and a half- pound canoe motor to a 20,760-pound diesel. You can spend as little as $1,200 for a cabin job or as much as $26,300, and in either case be sure that "it operates as easily as a motor car.' the 1939 program, making three classifications instead of only the junior and senior. The new division is for lightweight men's teams and is designed to attract the age groups I midway between juniors and seniors, i 18 years and tinder, men--21 years and The divisions are classified lows Junior boys- Lightweight under. Senior men--No age limit. A large prize list which includes three beautiful team trophies and 63 valuable individual player awards in each classification is assured. This The boat which appeared to at- i a l o R e wi . u TM= an nlne team trophies tract the most attention was a 42- foot fishing cruiser with tv/o 200- horsepower motors and a speed of 2.J miles an hour. It was labeled a "aports" boat, but it looked like something designed for a modern Pharaoh. It had three beds, not bunks, two tiled bathrooms (shower) and a combination dining and lounging room--all small but the essence of comfort--not to mention a shiny kitchen (galley to the seafarers) and all the latest instruments for finding your way around on the water. The exhibitors, with their pastel plumbing and fragile "marine china," obviously had their eye on the feminine trade, but it also appeared that they had a regard for nautical children. There were the six-foot playboat with paddle wheels, for example, the "life telts for kiddies" in blue, red and green, and any number of items --from tiny outboard motors to bulky boat hoists--which bore the legend, "a child can operate it." The catering to luxurious tastes was not confined to the cushioned seats, tinted lavatories, hand-painted highball glasses, "finger-tip controls" and automatic steerers. There were brilliantly colored rubber life belts so soft to the touch and pleasing to the eye as to make shipwreck seem desirable. The gadget department featured: A folding anchor, a shock-absorber clutch which makes it all right for your propeller to hit a submerged log, a three-power field glass that folds up to the size of a cigaret case, a silencer guaranteed to eliminate 98 to 100 per cent of motor noise, a wicked-looking harpoon gun that resembled a Springfield rifle with cross-bow attached, and a bilge drain lyrically described as "a sentinel that never. sleeps." and 189 individual player awards for the four-night basketball^ carnival. As an added attraction, several valuable team trophies will be added to the already rich prize list. These awards will be announced at a later date. AH prizes will be on display in local store windows the week before the tourney gets underway. The tournament association has already mailed out 100 invitations along with entry blanks. Many additional requests for entry blanks are pouring in indicating that .tins year's event will double and perhaps triple 1938's bracket of teams. Information and blanks may be secured by writing to Walter Mis- Tommy Speigal Wins.
