SPORTORIALS Continued from Page Twelve. the question of whether or not Smithflcld had a first class high school. The committee held that any high school that is classified In the eyes ot the State Department of Public Instruction is a recognized first class high school Georges' solicitor dealt at length with \arlous provisions of the law that Smithfleld's board had not complied with in order to have that rating When Swaney advised President Evens of bis displeasure, the latter informed him that the decisions committee Is elected by league members each year and invited him to appear at the May meeting and publicly ·voice his criticism of the body before the entire asscmly. For the most part, however, the nchoolmen are grateful to the persons who started the houscclcaning -- and It wasn't started by the W P I. A L. board. Many of them admit they have been subjected to "home town politics ' and were unable to get from under the pressure The probation action will relieve them and permit them to act according to their own dictates · When that becomes the cose, there won't be many schools deliberately violating the rules. And that's what the educators really want. BITS HERE AND THERE Jane H. Hocy, director of tho Social Security 'Board's bureau of public assistance, told a public hearing in Washington an investigator found the mother of o $14,000-a-year major league baseball player on the pension rolls because the athlete said his mother's upkeep was not his responsibility If his name had been revealed, said player probably would have found the club owner dropping him os his responsibility as a b'ad Investment . . . A big laugh was drawn by the W. P. I A. L. inquiry at Unlontown when it was learned that Rumenyak, South Union star, who was protested because ho was over age, did not play against North Union and Georges when these clubs got trimmed. "I thought you said he -was their star player," smiled Bill Evans, the general league president, directing his attention to Jock Adams of Georges and Steve Furin ot North Union. And the crowd joined in the fun ... The Casey Club gives a different version about the gome at Johnstown when the locals quit the floor denying that there had been any slugging. When one of the Cascys had a foul called on him, he asked the referee "how come" and the latter promptly ordered him oft the floor and refused to change his mind even when asked by the manager of the Catholic Ex-High flve, the opposition, so the locals tell us The score at the time was 34 to 30 with only four minutes left in the last quarter . . . Nathan Mann was listed as a* "warm-up" for Joe Louis but the Brown Bomber didn't oven work up a sweat . . . City championship series will resume Monday night at State Armory -with the Casey and Wcstinghouso teams In great shape . . . Lefty Gomez of the Yankees was nn overtime pitcher, his wife, pretty June O'Dcan, told the court in asking $200 weekly alimony pending separation action trlnl and $3,500 counsel fees. She said he tossed punches at her at night while by day the Yankee holdup tossed baseballs at opposing batters . . . March 11, 12, 18 and 10 probably will be the dates of the Fayctto county undergraduate basketball tournament at South Union Township High gym . . . Stray dogs killed a 16-polnt buck in Laurel Hill Mountains near New Florence The deer uas one of five taken from Pittsburgh's South Park herd. A dog also was killed . . . Dizzy Dean cased Into the signed ranks without much fuss. His work last year left much to be desired so Dizzy had to do less talking ... In one breath Fats Kennedys says Smithflcld Is ai" 'temporary' first class school" and then turns right around and denies It at least be consistent He might Louis to Fight Thomas April 1 By United Press NEW YORK. Febj 25--Champion Joe Louis, hailed as n "black Dcmp- scy" after his display of swage temperament againit Nathan Mann, was matched for a 15-round title defense against Harry Thomas, Minnesota mauler, at Chicago's Stadium on April 1 Thomas, the bectle-bro\v nod blond from Eagle Bend, will be the Bro\ui Bomber's second "tune-up" opponent in the campaign to sharpen Louis for his contracted June meeting with Mat SchmcUng Louis, $4Q 500 nchci j£tu his third-round Knockout of Mann, GRID STAR BECOMES CAGER JOHNNY MICHELOSEN Former atar quarterback ot the Golden Panthers football club of 1037, Johnny Mlchcloscn has gone in for basketball and comes to Con- hellsville tonight-with the Pitt Sen- iors who oppose Westmghousc dribblers at State Armory.
