League is concerned, eliminated Dumur Township from f u r t h e r competition Thursday night at I'Ht Stadium, P f t h b u n j , by a scoi 3 of 43 to 22. Turning loose a bewildering pass- ins? attack that the Ued and Black was powerless if check, the Monongahela Valley quintet chalked up a total of 20 fioli: goals, three o.f its aces, Feld-man, Janosik and Stevenson each T6J?lstennK six double deckers. While Dunbar displayed a neat offensive in tho first frame it did net measure up to tiie stellar play of the Monesen clan as that contingent recorded an eva half dozen. It was tho oivly frame that tho D. T. boys were able to keep within striking distance of the rack aggregation that is being favored to participate in the finals. In tliat stanza, the Shearer machine tallied seven markers. However, in tho filial quarter when Coach Ditty used Ws reserves, the Leisenrlng youtl.s ontscored tho Mon- esaen clan, six to two. During the other frames thf winning combination virtually had things its own way. It was a revelation to watch the Rules for 1930 American Legion Diamond Program This 16 the first a serlee of articles giving the rules and regulations of tho 1930 baseball program ot tho Junior American Legion teams in the United States, ponsorod by the American Legion.

To oach player's certificate of entry an-l eligibility there rrrust bo attached a certified copy ot Four Bouts Ready For Amateur Show On Thursday Night Jood Fistic Program Is Being Planned for Slavish Hall For March 13. Four bouts havo already been arranged for the nest flatic program of the Connelleville Athletic flub, to be presentr-d next Thursday evening at the Slavish Hall, according to announcement today by Billy Carter, matchmaker and trainer, who has already securod the aervino« of Moncaaen c l u b i n a c t i o n r u n c o r k i n g a i his birth certificate along with the cl«\er passing offensive that is the real playcr'e signature for identification backbone of its great winning apree, substantiating tho contention that a pood offense is the best -i-efonse. Dun'bar, hauling against odda, fought desperately and eight field goals was the result of its endeavor. Several beautiful shots from midfloor and several trom very difficult angles pepped up the Hed and Black. However after the first quarter, there was no question about the outcome BO convincing was the passing attack of the Monessoti outfit. The Section 12 champions starred In performance from the foul line, n e t t i n g eight out of 10 attempts while Mouessen, the t tie winners of Section 5, scored but three out of eight tries f r o m the free zone. Joe Tulley, D. T. ace and acting captain, led in this department, registering five out of six tries. When play was first started, Dunbar took possession of the ball but was unable to advance it beyond mid- floor. After taking the sphere on an out-of-bounds play, Monessen released Its deceptive passing and Captain Feldman tallied from beneath the basket. This tally, tho first of the game, came after two minutes ot action. Joe Tulley wink a beautiful shot from a difficult angle to tie the count and then Miller took a pass from Bailey to chalk up another murker, sending D. T. into the lead. However Monessen came back strong and Feldman recorded a double-decker. Stevenson got. away from the guards and was free under the net when ho dropped an easy one. Feldman came into the picture again with another neat shot. Bailey was fouled by Janosik and he made both attempts count. Currio then was given two shots from the free zone when he was fouled by Skonezuy. Ho made good. Salottl fouled Miller and Heorby tallied ono out of the two tries. As Stevenson dashed beneath the basket, he was given the ball on snappy pass from Janosik and doing a,fancy leap, he sent tho ball through the net aa the first quarter ended, 12 to 7. Janosik opened the second stanza with a field goul and then a foul shot. Currie dropped one from the side of the not and Janoslk dashed through tlu- center of i h o D. T. team to take a pretty pass and on two successive plays, ho registered. Feldtnau collected a douhlc-docker beloro Dunbar was able to break into the scoring columns. Hf-rby Miller, closely guarded by two Monessen players, purposes.

BMiop Poet of the American L*gk» has answered this qoestion with a step in fcbe rlgh* direction, deciding to spoaior a Junior American Legion Baseball League in OonneltovtUa, Ttoe Legionnaires, keenly Interested in community welfare and natBrally the right «nvlroiin»iit fer, tb« future mnnhood of thie great National, are to be commended for this more. It cannot b« denied that wood training in adhering to the rule* and reg- ulatians of the diamond sport wtll sen* to iMrtOl in the roangvter a spirit of respect tor the law« of this country and Inevitably wwre to make a better dtisen oat ot him. That's the real principle ct thte sport actirity. Baseball, America'* nrn game, is played by all of tb» bom and Inas- mocii as it is one to wttoh they are more apt to take a IBdn-K it is a much eaater task to get them to lire up to the code of the cnrricnlom.

This phaee of contests wQI flerre to glide the young boys of thfa region an opportunity to demonstrate their ba«e- ball ability. There's no (roertlon that these opportunttieB na,T» been con- spicious by their abwrnw. It will keep the youngsters active ami the training code that undoubtedly wfll be set down should keep a uwmber from straying from the "straight and narrow." In atl the advantage* fit tbte circuit are no numerous thett II. ahbuM be grven the wholehearted tooperatlcm of every citizen of thia oocitnnnity. If a a big step in the right direction and the beneftte of tt wfll long be remen- bered. Informatfon that slmfsar plan* era being tormutated at Scottdale bM been received. Dnnbar, it is understood, win again conduct an American Legion chtb. The Furnace Townera took part in the Fayette county ©limi- nattune last season. More towns and cities are expected to follow the diamond eport gp. All wn can add is: "More power to them!" Baseball Will Claim More Attention This Summer Than In Many Years. Eddlo Dyer, skipper of tt Cardinals at Scottdale, has Young changed his place o? abode from San Antonio to Howrton, Texas. He is doing a little athletic coaching for Rice Ineti- tate of which he is a gradnate. The information low leaks oot that the GTeensbnrg promoters of an "independent baekethall tournament" offered Scottdale Buicks t. 'leg" on tb« 1980 cnp 11 they wonM mter the play. Greensharg newspaper? , it seems, wrongly aecmed the B-oiefce of poor sportamansbJp in stirring op thie phaee of the 1929 tourney. It seem* strange that tbe^ Greene burgem could not live up to their promiww and pro- vWe the silver loving cup to the 1929 champions, jnst act they eaid thejr would, in view of the fact that the tournament was a ftnaidal sucoeeo. Their attitude in trying to "cover up"* their neglect eeems like a poor raoveu Many fans are wupporting the Bulckn in their step in not ante-ing the Greeneburg meet. The championship reste In Scottdale and if anyone wants it they'll have to oome there to flght for ft. tt seems that the Westmoreland county "capital" promoters take too much for granted and it'e high time that a halt be called to it. MEETING TO BE HELD SOON Although it, still rains and (mows here, the prone dispatches tell of activity of the haflehall s^an of the- major leagues getting Into condition under the sunshiny skiee of Florida and California, so with conclusive proof that spring and summer are ju«t around the corner, it is apparent the time is ripo to begin the organisa- tion of th« City Baseball League. Although a first attempt at organization of euch a loop, failed last spring, a half dozen clubs of -various sorts did get together late in the rammer and play a schedule until short daye of fall made it neoefieary to cloffB the season even before the tttlebolder had been decided. There is a reviving interest in. baseball here. The succese of the little league last year .probably had ooiy- siderable to do with it and in addition, Mayor H. D. MInerd ha* declared himself ae favoring a broader scope ot sports. He is a baseball player and fan himself and it i« very likely that such influence toadfc to urge the leaders into action. Some definite steps towards the organisation have already been taken. Two or three dabs have aligned themselves with the loop and an o^ ganizatkm meeting will be held in the near future. As bo/ore, tte offices of The Courier will h» mntflahte tor this purpose. With six or eight chib* repw there wflj be opportunity for many young athletes to get the benefit of the diamond sport. Equal division ot the stare on the different teams will make the contest* more interesting and an early Mart, permitting a divided season with the champion of one hall playing the champion ot the second will provide a. series of real merit. Throughout the winter months some of the organisers, it Is known, have been quietly working to better their organizations and a enrprtstng good quality of ball will be played. Several of the boosters have advocated the election of William McOor- mick, aa president o* the league, veet- Ing in hint the powers of a "high commissioner" eo that there would be an ending place for all arguments. He has agreed to do everything poesiblr- to help make the circuit a cmcoeea a£*i it IB believed h« will accept the duties of that office. ~B111" Urea on baseball in the summer time, and nibbles of every other sport in its respective season. If the city league te (successful ly organized and there te rstill a surplus of playing material, another loop- either a church league or an industrial circuit of some kind, could probably be undertaken. ' In addition to that brand ot baseball, there is the American Legion Junior League which, the Milton I,. Btehop Post wfll sponsor. It is likely every playing ground In the community -will be used by one or more clubs in the next six months.

March 7.--The tenor ot the messages received in the oflicu of Graduate Manager of Athletics amicp Over end of Carnegie Tech this week seems to indicate that alumni and followers of the football team are heartily in accord wtth ths Tartan coaches in re-appointing John Dreshar, stellar guard, a8 captain of the Skfbo grid team next fall. Dreshar wae appointed captain o» the football team at the close at the 1928 season. He was the first leader (o bo chosen by the coaching staff under the now system, and bis work last year vindicated the judgment of the coaches in the selection. Practically every one ot Carnegie's opponents, including Notre Dame, Pitt, New York U. and W. J. voted Dre-shar the best lineman to face them during the season. Captain Dreshar' aggreasivenebf. and playing ability will bo invaluable to the Tartan grid team next Call.
