PAGE EIGHT. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVIULE, PA. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 193S. Basketball Basketball Sportorials By JOHN H. WHOBIC Sports Editor ISN'X THIS CARRYING IT A LITTLE TOO FAR? A person with athletic inclinations at the University o£ Pittsburgh must account to the faculty board of control, under the new sports plan, the source of every penny or gift he gets to defray his expenses through college or be declared ineligible. The Bowman code says "No student shall represent thsi university en any athletic team who receives from others than those on whom he is not naturally dependent for financial support money or the equivalent of money, such as board or lodgings, etc, unless the source and character o£ these gifts or payments to him shall be approved by the athletic council on the ground that they have not accrued to him primarily because o£ his ability as an LATROBE PASSERS HERE, TONIGHT i i .. i Coker Five Will Close, League Season at Home; At Scottdale Friday WEST1NGHOUSE PUTS UP GREAT FIGHT AGAINST PIRATE QUINTET Nine Hundred Fans See Brilliant Pittsburgh Team in Action. athlete The athletic council shall, m advance of competition, require of cacli candidate for competition in any sport a detailed statement of the sources of his financial support, including any sums earned during vacation periods In the case of each athlete who is shown to have received financial old from others than those upon whom he is naturally dependent for support the athletic council shall in advance of his competition decide upon tus eligibility" We believe the university has gone just a little too far with its plan inasmuch as this provision leaves no athlete above "suspicion In effect it means that every person with athletic .inclinations must prove to the college that he's not resorting to underhand tactics Yet we are told that the courts of this land believe every -person to be innocent until proved guilty A» Pitt this won't hold true, so it seems BITS HERE AND TIIEKE We don't believe the rumor that Pitt football players got bigger pay checks than some of the professors, precipitating the amateurism policy . . . At last we have found someone to whom Bill Terry is actually friendly. He's Hoiacc Stoneham, owner of the New York Giants, and Terry's boss but of course that doesn't have anj thing to do with Memphis does it Bill's mental attitude or Coach Joe Lerevv has 20 boys training for the indoor track meet at, W.

Then come section- DUAL PROGRAM FRIDAY NIGHT al tie plajoffs followed by the tourna-1 otncrs The Pittsburgh Pirates, National League professionals, revealed to some 900 fans last evening at State Armory what a clever passing attack does m penetrating an enemy defense and how easily it is to get mlo position to score, in defeating the Westinghouse combination, 47-25, after the locals had played practically on cv en terms in the first half Standouts in the encounter were Freddy Miller ind "Beime" Jones for the Wcstmgnousc while Hymie Ginsberg and Dudcy Moore performed an great style for thp Buccaneers The icemen started the scoring when Jones directed an one-handed effort into the net from the side of the court Moore got his first goal-he tallied nine--to knot the count before Fred Miller twisted away from Kweller, the Pirates six and one-half foot center, to drop the ball into the hoop for two points He was fouled at the sime time and counted his free throw to put the locals out in front by three points Jones was assigned the job of hold the lead throughout the first quarter through it was only a single point when that period ended The game remained close through the second quarter with the pros makinp their shots count to take an 18-14 leid it the hilf Jones vvis assigned the Jbo of guarding Bill Jcsko, Fayette City High School coach, and held the former Pitt star to seven points Moore and Ginsburg paced the scoring, the former accounting for 18 points and the latter 13.
