League Basketball Eliminations to Get Under Way at Pitt Stadium. FIRST COUNTY CLUB IN SERIES The elimination series of the Western Pennsylvania luterscholaetio Athletic League will get under way this evening at Pitt Stadium, Pittehurg, with two undefeated circuit contenders in action. The first clubs to go to the wire are North Union Township of Fiiyette county and New Caatle, of Lawrence county, each completing the regular league schedule without a reversal. The New Castle combination lias also cleaned up all of its exhibition battlc.s as well, Connellsville and vicinity is keenly interested in the North Union quintet inaennich as the passers are coached by Ray Welsh, former star of the Coker club which won its , first sectional championship. It is believed Ray ie the only young man who took part on a pennant winning team to coach one to a title.

A hectic battle ia anticipated and a large following will accompany the North Union quintet to the Smoky City. The girls basketball club will bo guests at the contest, the roster being taken to Pi Its burg in a lxdy. Two other Fayette county quinbete will swing into action on the following week. Uniontown is echeduled to take on the crack Ford Cty contingent and then Dunhar Township lines up against the formidable Moneeseu outfit.
