LARGE CROWD. IS EXPECTED Rules for 1930 American Legion Diamond Program Announcement was made today that the first i;ame of UIP annual series between Connetlsvillo and Dunbar Township High basketeers will be staged Tuesday even.nt? at tho Lel- senring No. 1 gymnasium. Considerable interest is manifest in the play despite the ff.ct that the Red and Black warriors are ruling favorites to take both ends of the competition, tho second of which will be staged on the local courts on Friday night. Both ?ymnablums are expected to be taxed to capacity for the struggles and sUtidlng room uuquestioiia-blv will be at a premium as tho followers of tho two noighboily rival institutions will jam the spacious pavilions. Bruco M. Shearer lun a, vpiy good combination at Leisenrmg No 1 and the fact that tho contingent recorded 14 triumphs in 16 star^.3 may be given much thought. The quintet also copped the championship in Section 12, W. P. I. A. League, and while it was unable to cope with the crack Monessen High wariiors in the elimination round the showing of tho Red and Black was regarded as very good. The skipper has moulded a good scoi- ing combination Around Joe Tulley, Jimmy Bailey and Eugene Roillj, three lettermeu of 1W9. Be-hrens, Millei and Skonezny also have been play ing a game all season. Past perfoimances as a rule don 1 ) moan anything when these two insti- t u t i o n s KO atter each other in competitive i ndeators as has been noticed In the past. While Dunbar was tho r u l i n g favorite in 1929 in the Coker series, tho Leienrlnjr boys hud a difficult time ekeins out a triumph on the home ground and then were given a decisive whipping at tho Orange and Bl,u-k court. BUI Dolde, popular High School ithletlt director, seems to have i) T. "paged" when it comes to basketball and for this reason, two clocly contested battled can be | anticipated.

There's going to be much activity Thursday ni«ht, March 13, at th« Slavish Hill when the Oonnellsville Athletic Club putt. on. another of its popular amateur fistic program which should draw a crowd that will tax the capacity of the spacious auditorium. Seven matches that will provide real action and ke?p the huge gathering keenly interested are to be arranged by matchmaker and trainer, Billy Carter, who already has started the boys' regular workouts. A word to the sport tan--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 carnival The elrnon pares crawl through the ropes for honor and glory--cash, being out ot question--and thin virtually guarantees a world of battle. A mflfl by the n ime of Fred Bngle- hart, genial physical director of the Navy Y. M. C. A. has several score medals for winning places tu various athletic contests, including broad jump, hop-step-jumD, dash and etc. His ten rules, for success in athletics aro gheii as thus: Live moderately, do lots of walking, Keep regular sleeping hours, no pastry with meals, no smoking or drinking, no turkey trotting, eight hours work, regular meals run your own ract always and keep at it persistently. The West Side basketball tsara won another game at the Greenwood M. E. Church gymnasium last night, defeating the Methodists by a score of 27-18. The West Slders had the upper hand, all the way through the fast contest. Tom McCleary was the high scorer for the victors, registering four times and his passing kept the club out in front.

Yanking" Themselves Into Shape Manager Bob Shawkey himself puts his squad of potential New York Yankee diamond stars through their strenuous setting-up exercises. The familiar looking gentleman in th« center of the group i* knot 'n as Professor Babe Ruth, Sultan of Swat and Kini of Klout. The boys go through thia drill every i.nor itng as a part of their rigorous Spring training in p (partition for a big season back houne. Mayor II. D, Mi) erd, au advocate of community Sports for Connellsville, apparently is the figure behind tbo Junior American Legion Baseball League. "Dan' 1 is au active Legionnaire and he's a great believer in the right kind of athletics for the boys. Not that H matters but--Pug Cafferty's going to hold another boring show. He says Jw lost some money on the last program. Mayor H. D. Minerd Suggest* List of Potential Teams Be Procured. The Uniontown News-Standard continues to rnlBittforox ita readers. The other day the fol'owing paragraph appeared: "Dunbiu staggered through to victory this y-iar. Without Hon- josky, it3 stellar oager of last year, Dunbar was not so impressive* this year, PerryopolLi and SeWiokley scared the noble followers ot the l«iB- enring schpol at least three times." Winning 14 out ol 16 starts is some stagger and I don't mean maybe. And how Se-wickley did scare D. T. In the first game at Lelsenring, they won by 18 points and then in the second at the Hermlnle gym, tbe Red and only chalked up a 22-point edge. We hope for more swh scares. Ninetynine per cent of ihe close followers followers of the Loieeorlng team will vouch for the fact that the 1930 combination could trim th« 1929 auintet with Honjosky hoi'ling his own. Dunbar this season had a well balanced machine and its great success ia not attributed to any one Individual who on many occasions might ruin the entire club as has had happened many times Boxing Fans Will Get Treat Thursday At Load Program Boxing fans are due for a real treat during the Lenten season when on Thursday evening, March 13, the Con- nellaville' Athletic Club will present one of the best amateur flstlc cards ever to be witnessed in this region. Seven three-round bouts arc scheduled between the best boys in the Fay-West district. Teddy Mancuso, the local featherweight, is to battle Johnny Nagy who hails from Masontown. Nagy is anxious to add the Coker to his already long list of viotori. and Teddy will be on his toes iu order to check his opponent in a decisive manner. Teddy has already mot and defeated some of the best boys In tliis Vicinity and if he is able to conau«T Nagy, it will be ·A feather in his hat Joe Vargosky, the Youngwood mauler who has be«n fighting under the colors of the Couuellsvllle Athletic Club, will have His hands full when he steps three rounds with Young Fraucesk, represent np th« West Newton Athletic Club.

Jimmy Giacho-tti of Uniontown meets RUFB Sickles of West Newton and Young Gorcheik of Masontown encounters Red VIAm at West Newton in two of the other oouts.

SEVERAL LOOPS MAY BE FORMED J-ubt how many potential baselalt teams are there In Connellsvnie ie a question those interested in the organization o£ a City League and one or two other loops are asking. In another month the weather v1l] probably be favorable to outdoor practice and the earlier the start, the better the prospect for complete schixl- utes. Mayor H. D. Minerd, who is ranch interested in the promotion of the game as a community activity} lias suggested that clube which anticipate ·being active this season get In touch with the sports editor of The Oourlr, giving information as to age of players, experience and whether or not they would like to bo enrolled IB « loop. Beginning text week, despite ihe fact that many of the teams have not progressed further than preliminary discussion, this paper will announce any organization which is certain it will have representatives on the diamond. In that manner some idea of the league prospects will be obtainod. 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 plaua will be laid. There-'s nothing so thrilling on a bright summer day as the smack of hickory against the leather hide ot a baseball and if the young athletee ot the city get behind the movement which has been begun by Mayor M'.nerd, it is evident there will be plei ty of fun for tht idle hours. Not only will it give those athletically inclined something t,o do, but will provide entertainment for hundreds of others WEST NEWTON HIGH DOWNS COKER GIRLS IN CLOSE CONTEST The West Newton High School gti Is scored a 14-11 decision over the Coker sextet Thursday night at the Hi,;h School gymnasium.
