PAGE TWELVE. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 103S. Sportorials By JOHN H. WIIOJUC Sports Editor . .WOULD DISCiriJNE HUNTERS , State Game Commission has cited . more than 100 licensees to show cause why their hunting and trapping privileges should not be revoked as it pushes Its drive to make hunting safer In Pennsylvania, apparently intending to discipline those involved in accidents. The hearings have been Interrupted for tha time being but when resumed probably will reveal 'that some of- the hunters involved in accidents are not properly atted to handle firearms. Of 381 shooting cases last year, S3 were self-inflicted ·and.208. by others. TwentjC-four Jatal ,and_59 .non-fatal accidents v/ere.ot the- self-inflicted type while 21 fatal and 277 non-fatal were Jnilicled by others, the -commission reported.-- Ages of persons inflicting injuries showed 74 per cent were over. 21."^ Shotguns. caused 331 accidents, rifles 49 and revolver one while 334 mishaps occurred in Odds, 103 in'brush, 01 In dense woodland and as many in open woodland, one in a conveyance, four in camp, nine on woods road and eight on public highway. Of the victims, 249 were standing when killed or wounded, 24 bending over, 85 walking," five" entering 've- J)ipJos"and. eight 'others listed us miscellaneous. Three hundred seven were shot during clear weather, 23 while it was raining, 12 in a snow, fccvcn in a fog, 22 while it was light, seven when it was dusk and three after dark. The need for wearing a bright Westinghouse Cagers Present Professiona Club at State Armory G r e a t e s t Attraction Since 1930 Offered to Local Cage Fans". GAME TO START , - -- - " AT ' 9 O'CLOCK · The Pittsburgh Biratcs professional basketball club, n team local fans have been wanting to sec, will show at the Armory on Monday night. The management of the .Westinghouse five after three years TiasV succeeded in scheduling this team which has the greatest collection of stars ever assembled in the Tri-State district. The Pirates won the first half of the Eastern Division of the Natiannl Professional League and twice defeated the great New York Celtic Club-as well as -the Washington _Amcricans. The Westinghouse club, composed of all former High School players, has been together for three years and last season captured 45 games out of 55, winning the Fayette county championship, and this season has won II out of 15 games. This being the greatest collection of stars to appear in Conncllsville since the New York Celtics were here in'1930, a great outpouring of fans is looked for. There will be extra bleachers creeled to accommodate from 800 to 900 fans. The mam game will start at 9 P. M. There will be a preliminary between the Paramount Juniors, city junior champions, and the Corn- opolis Trojan's, starting at 7:45 P. M. Doors will open at 7 P. M. color is shown by the report that reveals 108 or 52 per cent wore no red, 84 had a red cop, 27 a red back and 72 both red cap and back. One reader remarked that 45 fatal »nd 336 non-fatal accidents was not such a' great toll when considering that there were 601,349 persons licensed to hunt in Pennsylvania last year. Probably his survivors wouldn't share his view if he was enumerated among the 45. BITS HERE AND THERE Uniontown High's football receipts for 1937 totalled 52,054.80 from which expenses for equipment must be deducted. A report to school board there showed $1,262.30 was received from games played away from home and $792.50 from home games which must mean that the countyscat is a good attraction any place but at Un- j Monday n ^M, the Cycles won the iontown. And all the while we've 0i d game from the Ohms, the Volts ' the Paramount Scores 20lh Victory; Trips Smithfield Cagers The Paramount Juniors .swung back into a winning stride when they took the measure of Smithfield at that place" by the score of 42-24 Wednesday evening. It was the 20th win for the locals in 24 starts. The Paramount lads uncorked a baffling attack that the Smithfield quintet was unable to cope with. Harry Hoover and Abbie Furlncy shared scoring honors for the theatre lads each dropping five doublcdeck- ers through the hoop, while Huhn showed up best for the vanquished quintet with 10 tallies. The Paramounts \ull play a twin bill on Saturday engaging the Gales in a junior league fray at 10 A. M. and then taking on the flashy Waynesbtirg Recreation Center dribblers at 3 P. M.

Preston Ditty didn't have the worries of a football coach last fall but he's going to collect his $2,800 salary just the same as a result of the Supreme Court verdict overruling the school board that tried to fire him without cause. Moncssen Daily Independent iaid the "whole matter was utterly _ unnecessary" as Ditty was doing a 'creditable job as coach and teacher. The Moncssen directors' desire for "new blood" will cost taxpayers over $5,000 m fees, court costs, extra sal- arics, etc China's plea to other nations for a boycott of the 1940 Olympic games in Japan fell on deaf cars in most European countries with only Finland and Czcchosolvakia indicating sympathy . . .

GEORGE, HUNT PACE SCORERS Immaculate Conception H i g h School continued its winning streak Thursday night when it won a return engagement with the Pcnn State Center quintet, 38-34, at Uniontown. The game was close and hard fought with the lead see-sawing in the last half. A spurt in the last period, mostly through the efforts of Hunt, Owl guard, who scored 13 points, gave the Night Riders a lead they maintained to the end of the game. Lloyd George nnd Porter were close behind their higii-sconng mate, tallying 10 and nine points,. Bailey was responsible for nearly half of his team's total as he hit the hoop for seven field goals and one foul. The line-ups: I. C. II. S. G. F. Pis.
