LEISENRING CLUB AHEAD Four exciting clashes marked Saturday's play in the WPA Junior Basketball League at State Armory. The I. C.

Fant new addition to the Willow Inn roster, played brilliant ball and added 13 tallies to his teams total. The final game of the afternoon saw a very determined Marchellctta's Clover Farm team from Dunbar shellack the Paramount Juniors, 2611. The Furnace Towncrs presented a brilliant defense that allowed the locals but 11 points, which is the lowest amount of tallies the Para- mounts have scored this season. By virtue f ' . the win the Dunbar cagers took a firm hold on first place in thi second half flag chase. W. Lizzn and Bobby Dunaway were in the limelight for the winners while Jackie Kline performed in his usual brilliant style for the Theatre boys. There will be no game* on February 26. The line-ups: I.

H. S. basketball teams will stir up much, if any, water-holding criticism.. For that's just what it's going to be, this game. A sky-rocketing, pin-wheeling and aerial-bombing affair. What's more, it's going to prove n hum-dingcr of a way to break up the usually monotonous manner of observing the day by merely closing banks and liquor stores and shortening postoffice hours. As is pretty generally known, nothing of any real importance hinges on the actual winning or losing of the game. It is just going to be a blossoming of a strictly home-crown sports plant, the seeds of which were planted quite a long time ago by fans from every w'ard in the city. .'Where the real import of the thing comes in, .as everybody knows, Local Posioffice Duckpin Stars Win Over Greensburg ·-- Bowling on the West Penn alleys Saturday night, the Conncllsville ·Postofflcc defeated Greensburg Postoffice by a margin ot 172 pins.

As to the relative strength ot the Dolde and Trump outfits, we plead guilty to knowing practically nothing. Some there are who, we are told, insist that if Lujack's reported indisposition keeps him out of tonight's tussle, the I. C.'s have a chance to overcome the remaining C. H. S. shock-trooping of Showman, Marakas and Evans. Then again. we've been curtly informed that with, or without, the services of their leading man, the Dolde troupers will positively teach Earl Trump's Porters, Hunts, Georges and Christophers a few tricks in dribbling,* passing and shooting they have not yet combatted. Somewhat confusing, this kind ot advance information, and while it may effect the betting in Wall street, and along Broadway (New York, not Scottdale), there's little likelihood of it bringing on a box-office depression. Truth is, the only lamentable thing about the whole affair is that the Armory can accommodate but a mere thousand or so fans.
