Clarence Gerhardt, who IB residing in Buffalo, N. V., is inter Msted in Con- ncllsvHle and his frieuite who live bore. He keeps in t o u c h with w h a t is going on by getting The Conrier through the mail and ha? been clonely following the .progress )f the city's two independent clubs. He writes: "Dear Jimmie: "Inaamuch a« I am n e t residing in Gonaellsville at the preo-mt but am a lifelong- resident of that place, it will do me good and many, many basketball fans good, to see th CaseyB and the Keagy Corners como to sensible terms and play that much-talked- about game. "Propaganda seems \o b« freely flowing from the critics aud some action would put a great many minds at ease. The one iudep Jtideut garno that should 1 be played i' r the championship ol the city lookt to me, from the write-npts printed in The Courier, to bo Idealistic but riot realistic. "If both teams claim -o havo very reputable managers let them prove their distinction by c o m i n g to some definite agreement. I, f o r one, think the 60-40 basis, such as used by tho Casey and Fral. teams, i v e r y good thing. "I have always been at ardent follower of both teams. Which team wins means practically m thing to me, but as I read The Couri r every day here In Buffalo,. I, as wsll as many others in Cotinellsville, ?et tired of seeing the same sarcasm being thrown at both teams without sal istactory re- suite. "Both teams wonld Ilk * to play, it seems to me, but one is a.'raid to give in to the -other's demacila, so tho clubs coming to a mutual agreement woald most likely produce a very good aJid most interes^tu gains. "Now Jimmie, pleaao juWish. thi« little note as it may Imvo some effect, although I suppose very ijtllo, on both teams when they know t'ltat people majay miles away would like also to hav« that game played."
