THURSDAY, PEBRUAIIY 10, 193S. Sportorials By JOHJf H. WHOBIO Sports Editor STATE LEAGUE TO STUDY CAGE RULE EFFECTS Taking cognizance of complaints that the center jumplcss basketball rule is working hardships on high school athletes,-Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association is making arrangements for a series of test games to determine to what extent heart action of boys is affected under the present rules. Main attention in the clinics will be centered on elimination of the center aump and its resultant effect on the players' health, according to Secretary Edmund Wicht. i "Physical welfare of athletes," Wicht said, "is one of our primary concerns. Questionnaires will be i sent all coaches to sound out reactions to the game under present rules and the lest games will be held to determine just how the boys arc affected." The P. I. A. A. board of control acted on petition of the State School Directors' Association asking the game be slowed down. It has already started a movement to reduce speed of the "streamlined" t,port but will await a poll of coaches before taking definite action. Criticism is voiced because elimination of the jump has speeded up the game too much. Among the places where the experimental games will be staged is Pittsburgh. It was said that an Illinois High School Athletic Association study definitely refuted contention that the game was "much" faster and more harmful without -the- center _ jump. Coaches, referees and doctors have been Insisting, nevertheless, that the new rule has presented a menace to the physical well-being of the boys. The possibility is so grave - that a careful study Is essential. United Brethren Five Nears First Half Flag In Y-Church Cage Loop AN UNUSUAL SITUATION It and when Fayette county's scholastic eligibility purge comes along, there'll be one case that will cause some serious thinking. The facts were related to us by a supervising principal who knows all the angles of the case. A boy is playing on a high school athletic team in the same district where he was born and reared. Since his father's death, his mother has become wayward and actually has no "permanent" residence although she has been keeping away from her former place of residence ·where the young man continues attending school. He is determined to get a high school education and takes part in extra curricular activities. He docs not live- with his mother for obvious reasons. Without support, the youth Is living with friends and earns a dollar now and then by doing odd jobs, such as scrubbing p*ches, playing nursemaid, running errands, delivering store orders and the like. This keeps him in food and clothing. The W. P. I. A. L. eligibility rule says the student can participate in athletics only for the high school in the district in which his parents reside. In this case the mother lives in a high school zone other than where her son attends. School officials know the history of the case and have permitted the boy to take part in athletics. What the final verdict will be in event of a purge can be only a matter of conjecture because of the unusual circumstances? We're inclined to believe we'd throw the rule book out of the window when this case would come up and apply the rule of good common sense. Christian Q u i n t e t Turned Back by Three Points in Thriller. ST. JOHN'S CLUB FORFEITS GAME The United Brethren baskctccrs continued their drive toward the first half championship ot the Y. M. C. A.-Church League Tuesday night by defeating the Christian quintet, 43 to 40, in a great game at the "V" gym. Bill Miller led the attack with seven field goals and three fouls lor a of 17 points while F. Miller was next in line with 13 and Bobby Conway paced the Christians with half a dozen double-deckers and two free tosses. In the second scrap the Dawson Methodist Episcopate won by a foi- fcit over St. John's Holy Name Society when the latter failed to place flve men on the flooi. The Churth of the Brethren conquered Lciscnring Presbyterians by a 43-38 count. Van Hoy and Zimmerman shared scoring honors for the winners with 14 and 13 points while Bailey and Goodman paced the winners with 15 and 12 points, respectively. There will be three games tonight.
