M EIGHT. Tilt: DAILY COURIER, CONNEbL-SVlL-bli;, 1'A SATURDAY, I^EBKUARY 19, 1938. Sportorials By JOHN H. WHOfilC Sports Editor SURVEYING THE FRONT Jumplcss basketball caused even conservative teams to become wild in a mad race to concentrate on attack but Northwestern refused to get panicky and built up its defense while styling a deliberate, short passing attack along the same lines it has used for several years. The Wildcats had such success with it that the second half race in the Big Ten probably will find moie concentration on defense rather than attack. No cue knows better than Johnr.y Woodruff that he isn't cut out to run on indoor boards. The Conncllsvillc Olympic champion of the gigantic awkuard-looking stride is destined to prove it time and again unless he changes his style but t'.iat would be fatal to the star's outdoor efforts so he'll continue his old form icgard- less what he does indoors. "My legs and stride are too long for banked curves," the former Cokcr ace admits. "My si/e and style aic a aid when I get out in the fresh air and on the flat where there arc no banks but they're a distinct disadvantage Indoors." 11 you're a penknife carver, bo careful when you go into State- owned park areas. Secretary Jim Bogardus of the Depaitmcnt of Forests and Waters urged cooperation in Saving propeity from haim and destruction. Money spent for necessary r e p a i r s , because persons couldn't refrain from carving their pet hieroglyphics on park signs toilet-room doors, benches, tables, etc., in State park areas, could be used for extension of these facilities. "Not only those who destroy but the innocent as well must pay for the destruction in this curtailment of conveniences," the secretary said, adding "there is a penalty against this vandalism in State parks." Printed "explanations" of Albert J. Everhart's "promotion" at Uniontown High School do not reveal why he was not consulted in advance by the school board's athletic committee about the new setup. A few minutes before the resolution making him director of athletics was approved, the board asked him what kind of a plan would meet with his approval. Yet some of the articles and editorials, would have you believe that the program had been mapped out a long time ago. While Everhart, coaching lor 20 years, now a grandfather and much older than he was when he first went to Uniontown, would like to have his burdei lightened, he never wanted it dishec out to him in the manner it was "Alibis" can't explain why, if everything was so harmonious, Everhar was kept in the dark about the new setup. Too, was- it just a coincidcn that tho school authorities were ou of the city when the school board adopted its new program? Principal Robert W. Clark invite other schools to keep close tab on eligibility of North Union Township High athletes because, he said, they may be able to uncover somethin he or his associates 1 couldn't Clar declared an over-ambitious coac who is interested only in his perso nal welfare can cause school official embarrassment by "pulling a fas one," adding it can easily be done for the principal and superintendcn usually take the coach's word fo granted after he has made his inquiry Continued violations, he said, woul merely, cause irreparable injury sports. North Union today was be fore the W. P. I. A. L. decision com mittee in Pittsburgh where charged Georges Township and Pom Marion with league rule violations.
