MONDAY, FEBRUARY 2S, 193S, THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. PA'GE FIVE. Basketball Basketball SportoriaEs By JOED? H. TVHOBIC Sjiorts Editor LOTS Or LUCK, GENE Gene Hasson, ConnclIsvlUe's major league bascballcr, is at "Lake Charles, La, where today he began the spring training season with Connie Mack's Athletics. The local first sackcr has to knock off about 10 pounds he picked up during the winter but should do this easily in getting Into condition. ' The 75-year-old pilot of the Phil- ndclphia Americans isn't demanding that Hasson set the league on fire in his first complete season Sn the big top, believing that if he can pound the apple at a .250 clip during his initial campaign he'll have done a highly satisfactory job. During the month Gene was with the Athletics last fan he hit .SOS and fielded perfectly. "They won't bounce me for not doing my best," Hasson told us before his departure Friday night for Philadelphia where he joined other Maekmcn for the trip South. Hasson has the best wishes of the people ot Connellsville and community who want to see him make good in the majors. He's the type that is n credit to athletics and those who know him are enthusiastic about his chances. RECALLS CENTENNIAL GAME Harry S. Jobes of Fast Fairvicw avenue, president of the Northern Fayclte County Baseball League, today recalled a 13-innmg baseball Rome played here on Saturday, July 21, 1906, at the time ot the centennial.

DUQUESNE HIGH LOSES PENNANT The swimming team of Connellsville High School, undefeated to date in sc\en meets, walked oft with the championship of the Western Pennsylvania _ Interscholastic Athletic League' Saturday afternoon in the Carnegie Tech pool The athletes of Coach Alfred R (Red) Barr captured four of the eight first places to pile up 54 points despite the fact there were no contenders in the diving events. Lack of facilities for diving has resulted in the Orange and Black forfeiting this feature in the six dual meets that preceded the league tournament. The Cokers scored in eight of the nine events, tallying in all but the diving A recapitulation shows the locals took first in the two relajs, first in two individual races, four seconds and two fourths Taking second honors was Du- qucsne that had held the swimming crown for the two previous years and one of the clubs that the Cokers had whipped in dual competition Turtle Creek, Butler and Clnirton, also entered, had been victims of the local aquatic stars. Coach Barr used 17 boys in the swimming competition and nine of them qualified for the western regional meet of the Pensylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association that will be held at Slippery RocK.

BITS HERE AND THERE A highly technical reason for loss of athletic ability by persons passing the age of 30 was advanced by Dr. Virgil Halhday, anatomy instructor in Still College of Osteopathy at Des Moines Lack of outstanding athletes over 30 is duo to reduced elasticity of the "nucleus palposus of the intcr- vcrtebral disk," he said. These elas- .tic disks lose their sponghiess in persons past 30 thereby reducing the pleasure of exercise as well as agility. . . Never before have we heard as much booing as Referee Rhodes and Umpire Preston Ditty got Friday night at Pitt Stadium during the Dunbar-Dormont game--from both sides of the pa\ihon. It sounds like sour Slopes but we believe Dormont should have been scored with at least six touchdowns instead of field goals . . Sir Charles V Brooke, white rajah of Sarawak, slid he had restored to his daughter, Princess Baba, the $3,000 annual allowance he stopped when she married Bob Gregory, the wrestler . . . Norman "Tinker" Ridgley, Specn's (England) top darts player, stayed in hiding as his bnde-to-tw, Ishbel MarDonald, presented a coveted darts cup to the district winner. Friends say he was too shy to face his cronies from miles about for the first time since his engagement was announced . . . No less than eight tunes was the Dunbar-Dormont score tied up and the six-point margin at the end of the game was the largest edge cither five held ...
