There's going to be much activity Thursday Bight, March 13, at the lavish Hall when the Oonnellsville Athletic Club puts on another of ito popular amateur fistic program which should draw a crowd that will tax the opacity of the spacious auditorium. Seven matches that will provide real action and keep the hn»e gathering 1 keenly interested are to be arranged by matchmaker and trainer, Billy Carter, who already has started Lhe boys' regular workouts. A word to the sport fan--There's one consolation when you go to an amateur fistic card. You know that you'll get your money's worth in action and that there's no opportunity of a Phil Scott carnivaj. The simon pures crawl through the ropes for honor and glory--cash being out of question--and this virtually guarantees a world of battle. A man by the name ot Fred Bngle- harl, genial physical director of the Navy Y. M. C. A., has se/eral score medals for winning place in various athletic contests, inoluoing broad jump, hop-step-jump, dash and etc. His ten rules, for success in athletics are given as thus: Live nwxlerately, do lots of walking, keep rerular sleeping hours., no pastry with meals, no smoking or drinking, no turkey trotting, eight hours -work, regular m«als run. your own ract always and keep at it persistently.

Minerd, an advocate o community sports for C onnellaville, apparently is the figure behind the Junior American Legion Baseball League. "Dan 1 ' la an active Legionnaire and he's a great believer in the right kind of athletics for the boys. Not that it matters but--Pug Cafferty's going to hold another boxing show. He says he lost some money on ^he last program. The Uniontown News-Standard continues to misinform 1U» readers. Th« other day the following paragraph appeared: "Dunbar staggered through to victory this year. Without Hon- josky, Us stellar eager of last year, Dunbar was not so impressive this year, Perryopolte ami SeWtckley scared the noble followers of the Leisenring school at 'least three times." Winning 14 out of 16 starts is some stagger and 1 don't mean maybe. And how Sewickley did scart D, T. In the flrst game at Leisenring they wop by 18 points and then in the second at the Herminie gym, the Red and Black only chalked up a 22-pomt edge. We hope tor more such BC ires. Ninetynine per cent of the close followers followers of the Leiaeni lag team will vouch for the tact that the 1930 combination could trim tho 1929 quintet with Honjosky holding lite own. Dunbar this se»son had a well balanced macfcine and its great au ccess is not attributed to any one indi vidual who on many occasions might min the entire club as has had happened many time?. Boxing Fans Will Get Treat Thursday At Local Program Boxing fans are due for a real treat during the Lenten seison when on Thursday evening, March 13, the Con- nellBVille' Athletic Club will present one of tho best amattur flati; cards ever to be witnessed In this region. Seven three-round bouts are scheduled between the beai. boys In the Fay-West district. Teddy Mancusc, the local featherweight, is to battle Johnny Nagy who hails from Masontown. Nagy is anxious to add tho Coker *.o his already long list of victories ind Teddy will be on his toes hi ordr to check his opponent in a decisive manner. Teddy has already met and defeated some of the best boys in this vicinity and if he is able to conquer Nagy, it will be a feather in his hat. Joe Vargosky, the Youngwood mauler who has been fighting under the colors of the Conue Isvllle Athletic Club, will have his bawls full when he steps three roun-ls with Young tfrancesk, reprJsentinK th-e West Newton Athletic Club, These boys are mixers ami fans are assured plenty o£ hard wallops. Reuorts emanating from Youugwood indicates that Joe will come to Conns!! villc backed by a large delegation of home fans. Jimmy Giachettl of Uniontown meets Russ Sickles if West Newton and Young Gorcheck ot' Masontown encounters Red Vt*ts of West Newtou in two of ihe other bouts, Three more are to be arranged. Babe Hulh has rjectcd th« compromise offer of C'oUinel J^ko Eup- pert, owner of tho NV w York Yankees. The offer was $86,DOo for this year or $80,000 for each of uoxt two season*. Mayor H. D. Minerd List of Potential Teams Be Procured. ^, « · » · » ! SEVERAL LOOPS MAY BE FORMED Just how many potential baseball teams are there in Oonnellpville la a question those interested In. the organization of a City League and one or two other loops are asking. In another month the -weather will probably be favorable to outdoor practice and the earlier the start, the better the prospect for complete schedules. Mayor H, D. Minerd, who la much interested in the promotion of the game a^ a community activity! has suggested that clubs which anticipate being active this season get in touch with the sports editor of The Courier, giving information as to age ot players, experience and whether or not they would like to be enrolled Jn loop. Beginning next week, despite tho fact that many of the teams havo not progressed further than preliminary discussion, this paper will announce any organization which is certain it will havo representatives on tho diamond. In that manner some idea o£ the league prospects will be obtained. Within a few weeks it is hoped to be able to call the managers of the various teams together and hold meetings at which organization plans will be laid. There's nothing so thrilling on a bright summer day as the smack of hickory against the leather hide of a baseball and if the yonng athletes ot the city get behind the movement which has been begun by Mayor Minerd, it is evident there will be plenty of fun for tht idle hours. Not only will it give those athletically inclined something to do, but will provide entertainment for hundreds of others.
