WHORIC, Sports Editor S^ WHAT'S GOING ON IN HIGH THIS MAN HORNSBY SCHOOL CIRCLES Rogers Hornsby hasn't changed one Sports writers of the Mon Valley iota in his 25 years of baseball and pooled their ballots in naming mythical dribblers in Section 4. The first team includes Henry Pennline and William Olson, "both of Charleroi, forwards; Harry Dombroski of Mones- scn, center, and- Paul Sutton of Brownsville and Mike Tonkavitch of California, guards. On the second club are Bill Barton and Tony Caterino, both of Monessen, forwards; Tom Galiffa ol Donora, center, and Robert Davis of Monongahela and Robert Fisher of Charleroi, guards . . . A Uniontown sports writer says he had an exclusive story on the W. P. I. A. L. relays coming here, contending he printed the story "three weeks ago. "He'll have to admit that lie read the'it" in this column last November ~ ise fess up it sure lakes many months for him to find out what's going on in the world of sports Conemaugh Township High of Davidsville obtained P. I. A. A. approval to sponsor a district scholastic undergraduate basketball tournament March 17, 18, 20, 21, 23 and 24. Boys who won't be eligible for the cage sport next season can't take part. The meet \vi\\ be divided into two classes . .- . Dunbar Township High's football club is to be called the Ramblers because the eleven plays all of its games away from home . . .

Basic price schedule for football officials at high school games will call for: S7.50 and expenses for Class E games, $10 and expenses for Class A and $15 and expenses for Class AA. Grid arbiters' representatives met with P.. I. A. A. officials and worked out n plan, it being contended, however, that the officials can reduce the rates in instances where schools do not have enclosed parks. as a conductor of a baseball school he's still the same gruff, lay-H-on- the-line fellow who forced Sam Breadon of St. Louis Cardinals to get rid of him after an argument over a salary. Hornsby runs the ball school in Arkansas where kids can learn the game in six weeks for S50 and in four weeks for $35. The Rajah won't kid about anything. If a boy comes to his school and doesn't look like he lias any baseball ability, Hornsby tells him so and tries to send him home. Hornsby, one of the slugging kings of the National League and for years its tops as a second baseman, doesn't drink or smoke and Ms greatest vice is betting or. horses.

Every trout stream in the State has been stocked liberally and, where possible, refuge barriers have been built ir. streams to provide shelter for fish in event of high water. There- is likelihood that the streams will draw a record outpouring of fishermen in April and May as economic .-wOndirions have. given many more time to spend at streams.

Keany, whose Rhode Island State College quintet staked a claim as the highest scoring basketball team in the Nation with a total of 1,480 points in 21 games for an average of 70.47 points per game. "It's all plain,.common sense that any schoolboy who knows how to figure could sec through," he said. "Look at your statistics. The average number of shots that are made in a basketball game is from 22 to 27 per cent of the shots taken. It stands to reason that that takes more shots han its opponents has a better chance of making more points." His offense is built around a fast-breaking attack with emphasis on long passes and frequent shooting. Players are trained to shoot one-handed both from a stationary position and while in motion. All five men play up the floor, abandoning any at/- tempr at defense and concentrating only on ouiscoring the opposition. Christians; Methodist Protestants at First M.
