PAGE TEN. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 193S. Basketball 1 Basketball CITY CAGE TITL SportbriaEs By JOHN H. WHORIO Sports Editor SHOULD SCHOOLS CHEAT? Judging from his remarks, Ed Kennedy, sports editor at Uniontown paper, believes it's all right to do a little cheating il you think someone else is doing it and getting away with it as he levels a blast at the W. P. I. A. L. because it has directed its attention to Fayette county to clear up charges oÂ£ wholesale eligibility violations. We challenge this assertion by Kennedy: "The general contention is that there isn't a school in the county flat hasn't violated some section ot the eligibility code during the 1937-38 school year. And no doubt those making the charges arc right." As is typical of his remarks, as soon as Uniontown is caught flatfooted he begins spouting that everyone else is out of step with the world. To quote him further: "One school man questioned about the matter said: 'I know that eligibility rules arc being violated but we are virtually forced into it by other schools outside Fayettc county. It is a tact that the rules aren't so rigidly enforced, .in other sections as some advocates would" have in Fayettc county. Yet we go out and play those other fellows. We don't have any check on the boys they certify to play against us and to have an even chance we have to do a little "cheating" ourselves.' " It there is a person connected with any educational system in the county who would make such a remark he has no business in it, not in a profession that is intended to guide the youth of today to be better citizens of tomorrow. Those are the sentiments of every parent interested in the welfare of his child. But what does Kennedy iay'/ We quote: "The argument (as set forth by the said school man) was well taken. It is not fair to ask Fayettc county to clean house and then be called upon to.xncet schools in other districts who aren't so particular about their eligibility standards. If it is the desire of fans and some other newspapers (evidently meaning that he isn't so minded) in the district Ihm there be a cleanup, it seems from this corner that the action should not necessarily be started in Fayettc county but with the heads of the W. P. I. A. L." We maintain that there isn't a finer organization in the country than the W. P. I. A. L. No one (excepting one with Kennedy's "point ol view") can sincerely attack it and its principles. The league officers are men of the highest calibre with thought only of making for better athletic activities in all schools. The league me.:cly drafts a set of rules and the officials interpret these. The rest is up to the member schools and when they stray from the path of righteousness criticism may be di- rcc:ed only at the individual schools, not the league or its officials. When schools knowingly violate eli jibilily rules, and that's the cjsc mcst of the time, they should be penalized and not defended. There can never be the attitude that just be:ause a fellow next door doesn't li\e up to the law that you should make it your business to become a vmlator. You might get caught bc- fo 'c he docs. It's a terrible situation, al' adm:t. but when newspaper* defend cheaters we wonder if athletics in schools are worthwhile. Coker Swimmers Take Fifth Straight Event, Defeat Butler Squad Coach Red Barr Takes Club to Turtle Creek Pool Tuesday. VIE IN LEAGUE MEET SATURDAY The swimming team of Connclls- ville High School captured its lifth straight victory on Saturday afternoon by defeating Butler High a: the lattcr's pool by a score of 52 to 22.

PRELIMINARY AT 7:30 SHARP Tonight the Armory will be the scene of the first g.ime of a series between the Westingnouse and Casey quintets to determine the city championship. The tilt is reminiscent of the Frat-Cnsey scraps of long ago and tfie large hall is expected to be jammed to capacity. Replacing the stars who were on the Casey roster in the olden days are Red George, Hcinie Brown, Fran Miskmnis, Jack Hart and others. These lads have a season record of 14 wins as against one loss and arc'confident that they can turn back the Westinghouse club. The icemen have played possibly a harder schedule and though though their win and loss record isn't as imposing as the Caseys, they have accounted for 759 points in 20 games for an average of 38 points per game. Champions of the city and county last season, the Westinghouse lads arc confident that they can repeat. A preliminary game between the Shamrocks and Hazel-Atlas girls of Washington, Pa., gets under way at 7:30 o'clock. KIWANIS KEGLERS TOPPLE ROTARIANS IN SECOND MATCH Kiwanis kcglers defeated the Rotary Club in the second of a three- match scries at Live Wire Alleys in the Masonic Temple Friday night, taking two out of three games. As m the previous week the Ki- wanians won the first two and then weakened in the third encounter. Had the victors made it a clean sweep the scries would have been ended, but (he Ro^ry comeback makes it necessary for the third engagement r.ext Friday night. As the series now stands, Kiwanis bowlers hold an edge of four games to two. Rotarians, pepped up by the optimism of Van Humbert, anticipate winning three in a row r.ext Friday to change the result to five to lour to capture the scries. Kiwanians feel the pennant is in the bag, with only one win in (he next three games needed to capture honors. The scores: ROTARY Saand half oÂ£ the Y. M. C.
