Supervising Principal W. Glenn Bung announced arrangements are under way for the annual athletic banquet o£ Fayette City High School Tuesday night, March 21, in Fayette City Methodist Episcopal Church . . . Athletes are not over-emphasized in Sharon High School and there is a well-balanced educational and athletic program, the board of education there declared after a survey, answering charges of teachers last October 10 that too much emphasis was being given sports. The board's conclusions weic presented in a 34-page answer. First Sfreefers Topple West Side Paced Tjy its star center, "Willie." Flynn, former Immaculate Conception High basketeer, Fust Street Service Station quintet loosened a barrage of field goals to rout the West Side Stars by a score of 66-43. Flynn was high scorer with 27 points The Ime-ups: First Street G. F. Pts. T. Flynn, 1 3 1 17 Nicolazzo, t 3 1 7 W.

A bowling ball is said to travel 19 4 miles an hour when it's fired down a 60-foot alley at the normal way of pitching Henry Doerfler used to shoot one about 38 per Bill Phuntek doesn't throw his; he carries it nearly all the way . . . Won't be long before the baseball bug will have the boys but so far we haven't heard anything about reviving the Fay-West League . .. When an all-Ohio high basketball five was picked, fandom wondered why Lester Klay, senior forward and one-man scoring machine of Class B Sardis High of Monroe county, was overlooked, falling even to rate honorable mention. In four 3 ears, Klay scored I 280 points or 320 per year, despite the fact Ins team \vas a consistent loser This jear was his big one as he hit the hoop for 400 or an average of 22 67. That's probably why they put the "mythical" handle on these selections . . Coach Cam Henderson of Marshall (W. Va ) sajs basketball has improved greatly by eliminating the center Jump The heighth advantage was offset ind the tall, awkward player was replaced by faster and more accurate shooting boys, he added, thereby increasing fan interest . Fans going to the Jack Roper fight in California ore advised by Joe Louis, the champion, to get there early because he's taking Roper to the clejners quick . Pitt's dribblers selected these all- opponent clubs First, Stark, Carnegie Tech, and Widowitz, Duquesne, forwards, Hutchins, Bradley Tech, cente-, and Miller, Westminster, and Lothes, West Virginia, guards, and second, Becker, Duquesne, and Schunk Bradley Tech, forwards; Foertsch, Cornell center, and T'jm- pane, Carnegie Tech, Prosser, Pern State, and Kurtyka, Georgetown, (last two were tied), guards * . . "Baseball is a game but it also Is a business and a business man can't afford to pay high prices for products that are not the best," says President Bill Benswanger of the Pirate- He referred to Paul Waner Bill said "Paul's product is his batting average It was not the best last year It slipped to 280. There arc a lot of outfielders hitting .280 When Paul | had a good year, we paid him accordingly. It js only fair that he should | be content w i t h less" If Paul would've had a fair season last year, he'd have collected the loser's share of the World Series money instead of a cut for second place . . Geoffrey Mellor of New York claimed a new Atlantic fishing record for a 24- thread line He hooked a 12% foot, 585-pound blue marlin off Cat Cay and brought it to gafT in 51 minutes after it had made 18 clean leaps . . , Manger Doc Prothro insists that pitching will be the Phils best point in the National League fortunes next season.

His opooncnt from York yas a dassv pcrformcr but Earl pulled alongside of him as they neared the fin'sh line It w n s on the last stroke that he took thit Cross hit the line, barely inches ahead of his foe As this relay was the last event on the calendar, it required the final stroke of the final rncf- to give ConnellsMlic its only first place m the meet. The medley relay team of Bob Colborn, Jack Foley and Bill Blacka came in second about four yards beh.nd York's classy performers. But for a bad break, Fob Colborn might have won the 100-jard back stroke in which race he was second to Hinkle o£ York who won in 1 05 4. Colborn hit the wall with his head on the turn yet finished in 1 06, six- tenths of a second from first. This was his best performance at that. Gerald Clemmer was in a fast race, the 220 free style, and Ins fifth place was 1 8 seconds behind fourth In the 100 free style, Bill Blacka's fifth was 0 1 of a second behind fourth and 06 of a second behind third which gives an idea of how close the swimmers were bunched at the finish. Ed Boyle was in the 220 and placed sixth while Cross finished in the same post in the 50-yard free style. Cioss turned in a time of 26.1, his best of the year He has been hampered with a cold all year as have been Blacka and Clemmer The Cokers didn't enter the 100 breast stroke Coach Barr is taking the swimmers to Carnegie Tech Saturday for the annual relays and this meet will close the Colters' schedule for 1938. The summary of the State meet follows. 220-yard free style--Won by James Arrmon, West Reading; Ed Shaw, Erie Strong Vincent, second; Clark Ressler, York, third, Dippy, Abmgton, fourth, Gerald Clemmer, Connellsville, fifth; Boyle, Connells- viile, sixth.
