Frank Carideo, twice nn all-Amen| can quarterback under the late Knute "ocknc at Notre Dame, was named sackfield coach at the University of Iowa by Dr. Eddie Anderson, new iiead skipper. Sportorials By JOHN H. WKORIC Sports Editor. LANDER LEADS SCORERS IN SECTION 9 i Lander, Jeannette High's sharp- shooting forward, set the gait for the individual scorers in Section 9, W. P. I. A. I.,., with a total o£ 124 points but he had his hands lull as Ross of Scottdale gave him a chase down to the -wire, the Miller getting 321 points, or only three less than his Glass City rival. As Lander dropped 52 field goals and 20 fouls, Ross shot 49 double- deckers and 23 free ones. Tragessor of Jeannette was third in line with 91 on 42 field goals and seven fouls and Akers of Scottdale stood third with 33 field goals and 21 free tosses for a total of 87. It is strange that the four leading scoring honors would be captured by members of teams that never at any time hnd a look-sec as far as the crown is concerned. The scoring of the players includes: Westmoreland County Court Series to Begin Friday Night. FINALS TO BE HELD MARCH 11 Distillers Cut Loose in Last Half But Lose by 30-27 Score.

OUR Z^nd ANNIVERSARY of the installation of Modern Newspaper Service When The Daily Courier newspaper carriers complete delivery to the regular Courier subscribers in the City of Connellsville tonight, they will have started their third year of modern newspaper delivery service. The Courier abandoned the obsolete metHod of Hired carriers and office collection for delivery of its newspaper on February 28, 1937. The installation of its present method of distribution was made with the delivery of the following issue. This ended irregularities and provided better service to subscribers. It eliminated duplication and over-extension of routes under which some had more territory than they could cover efficiently. The work as a salesman carrier provides an incentive for better citizenship. No boy is taken into the organization if he does not come well recommended. No boy is kept within the organization if he cannot maintain the kind of service to his subscribers that they rightfully expect. -The new system is a great improvement for everybody concerned. It is better for the boy because it gives him a useful training and enables him 'to make money b"y following business principles. It is better for the newspaper for it provides a systematic, dependable organization. 11 is better for the subscriber for he can rely upon prompt, sure deliveries and a business-like Handling of his account. . . THIS MODERN SYSTEM AFFORDS... iThe Carrier Salesman ·Training in Salesmanship. ® Training in Accounting. ©Training in Responsibility. THe Subscriber · Efficient Delivery Service. · Convenient Collection of Accounts. · Cooperation in'Character Building. THe Newspaper · Improved Delivery. · Increased Subscription Lists. · Outlets for Civic Service. The Daily Courier feels that it's organization of 37 city carrier salesmen* is a real community asset. It provides a practical business course which includes self-confidence and courtesy, an opportunity for earning needed money, and moulds character by causing the boys to realize that they are engaged in an important and dignified work. You can help the boys by having your money ready for them when they knock at your door to collect. *A totnl of 143 boys are engaged in the distribution of The Daily Conrier. urien
