DUNBAR IN CAG / Leisenring Will Meet Dormont Team at Pitt Stadium Friday Night \v Section 10 Champs Had Won Title Three Straight Years. SPECIAL TRAIN TO CARRY FANS When Dunbar Township High bns- keteers encounter Dormont, Section 8 titlist, at Pitt Stadium in Pittsburgh Friday night at 7:30 o'clock in the first round basketball eliminations of the Western Pennsylvania TnterschoJastic Athletic League, it will be the fourth time that the Leisenring No. 1 school, coached by Bruce M. Jjhearcr, will be participating 5n the tournament. The first season--191D--when the Red and Black took part in league competition, it came through with the championship of Section 12 and then followed it up with the titles in 1930 and 1931 in the same division. In 3929 Leisfnring tackled Bellevue and suffered a 25 to 12 setback. The following yrar Moncssen was encountered and D. T. was tripped, 43 to 22, while in 1331 Dunbar played Scott High of North Braddock at Greensburg, losing a 38 to 10 verdict. Leisenring was switched into another section and then moved again in 1935 so Section 10. In 1936 the Bed and Black fought to a dead heat with Uniontown and lost in the plny- o(I game at Scottdale. Last year the townshippers wound up in third place as Berry Township took the gonfalon. On this season's floor combination there are live seniors, four juniors and two sophomores. Those playing their last year are Martin Hasson, John Benko, Walter Yourich, Joseph Szepesi and Earl Uoscnstecl. The juniors are Herchko, Pavlosky, Husband snd Kontra while the two sophomores are Romanko and Hcrtz- nelJ. There will be a large delegation at;Pitt Stadium to root for. the champions of Section 10 as arrangements have been made for a special train to be operated over the Pittsburgh Lake Erie Railroad. It will leave ConneUsville at about 5:30 o'clock (exact time of train movements will be announced tomorrow) and make stops between here and Dickerson Run. Special trolleys will take the fans from the railroad depot to the Jtadium. Game tickets, at reduced figures, arc being offered at the Leiscnring school. Because the game between Dunbar and Dormont is booked for 7:30 o'clock, the flrst part of a double-header, it is necessary to make an early, departure. So. Huntingdon Cagers Whipped By Scottdale Special to The Courier. SCOTTDALE, Feb. 23.--Scottdale High chalked up a 42 to 30 decision over South Huntingdon Township High of Section 18 at State Armory Tuesday night. It probably will be the last tilt before the Bluo and White participates in the Westmoreland county tournament unless Coach Bill Lohr is able to book a practice session for next week to keep his boys in stride.

FORMER PITT GRIJD STARS AT ARMORY MONDAY NIGHT Some of the outstanding gridiron performers of the University of Pittsburgh last season will appear at the Armor}' Friday night to demonstrate their prowess on the hardwood wilh Joe May's Wcstinghouse club being the host team. Last Friday the icemen entertained the Duquesne University seniors and carried off a victory after one of the roughest games yet played but advance reports concerning the Pitt dribblers show them to be court performers of no .mean ability. Johnny Michclosen. Don Hcnslcy, Frank Patrick, Henry Adams and George Delich make up the starting quintet nnd all have been star performers on their respective high school teams. Michclosen, Hcnsley and Delich have been members for the past three years of the undefeated Kappa Sigma Fraternity basketball team. Another large crowd is expected and ample seating will be provided. A preliminary game featuring the Paramount Juniors will start at 7:30 o'clock with the main attraction scheduled for 8:30 o'clock. local Y. M. C. A. Teams Win by Large Scores I Both Conncllsvillc Y.

"We're losing too many names as it is without taking credit for other losses," writes Fred Sncll, disclaim- ing "credit" for the detent of the Cormellsville team, 39-21, at Washington, last week.

One of basketball's most novel attractions will be afforded district basketball followers tonight when the Manhattan Co-eds, world's women professional champions, invade Charleroi for a game with the fast-stepping Collins Club on the Junior High floor. Somerset Floor Champions Meei Tussey March 12 Special to Tho Courier. SOMERSET, Feb. 23.--Principal W. E. Griffith of Somerset High School and chairman of District No. 5, Pennsylvania Interscholastic Ath- tetic Association and a member of the State's board of control,, announced that the basketball championship playoff game for the local zone will be staged at Bedford High School gymnasium on Saturday, March 12. Schools involved will be the champions of the Tussey, Mountain League of Bedford and Fulton counties and the winner of the Somerset ] county tournament. .The playofT, to determine the district entry for the annual state championship tournament, will precede by four days ol first inter-district game between the champions of Districts 5 and 8, scheduled for Tuesday, March 16. The winner of this game will meet the champion of District 7, (the W. P. I. A. L.), and the winner of this contest will enter the western regional final. State semi-final. Bedford High court scene of the district title contest, is one of the finest in Western Pennsylvania. It was chosen as a neutral floor, since Bedford is not competing for district honors, and is ineligible for the game. Saxton and Everett are at present leading the Tussey Mountain League, and it is probable that either will be the loop champion. The Somerset county champion will be determined in a tournament which will match the three highest ranking teams of the A League and the B League champion. No site for the county playoff has yet been chosen, but it is the general opinion among cage fans here that cither the Berlin or Meycrsdale High floors will bo used. Both teams are definitely out of the running, nnd their courts are available for the playoff. Special to The Courier. PITTSBURGH, Feb. 23.--Intercollegiate hockey has taken Pittsburgh by storm in its first year. Over 6,000 fans, one of the largest crowds ever to jam Duquesne Garden for any game, watched the last collegiate double-header, and Pittsburgh ice- enthusiasts are looking forward to March and the return of the college ice-war to town. Having successfully battled their way to the top of the eastern division of the Pittsburgh-Cleveland intercollegiate Hockey league the Pitts are looking forward to the campaign beginning the first of March which will put them against the top-notch- ers in the western division. Johnny McSorlcy's Pitt charges bump Western Reserve at Pittsburgh on March 1, Reserve being in second place in the West. Two nights later they renew the duel with the Red- cats at Cleveland. A double win for either outfit would practically eliminate the loser from the race. The Panthers then have two dates with tail-enders in both sections, Carnegie Tech at Pittsburgh on March 12, and Fenn at Pittsburgh on March 16. The Panthers will throw their last challenge at John Carroll at Cleveland on March 18. 3 I 6 _ 1 1 .-- 2 rts. g 7 o 14 5 4 5 8 7 2 25 12 62 Non-scoring substitutes--Licking. All Stars G. F. rts.

No laboratory rule-of- thumb can guide him. Only skill and experience can distinguish between the mere fragrance of ordinary hops and the medley of exquisite and elusive aromas that exudes from truly fine blossoms. The costly imported Saazer hops used in brewing BUDWEISER are chosen only after three separate and distinct judg- ings. Hence the sprightly bouquet that hovers over each glass of BUDWEISER ... and the distinctive taste that sets BUDWEISER so vividly apart. £ T H I S T E S T !
