The act ot' Bportsinaiiahlp that aatounded Wvotera Ponnaylvania basketball followers'when a former Scottdale and Lower Tyrone township youth "«»crlfloel" a vict-iry rather, thaa take ad vantage of an unfortimate opponent brought iiraiae In Sunday's Pitt'sburg Sun-l'eiojrrttph, The yoan(t man In question .'.» Oliver Gordon, Bon, of Mr. and Mrs. W, H. (Jordon of !xwer Tyrone towiiahtp. Under the oaptlon of "Chanipiona even when they lo^se," the paper has a photograph of the team w : th this comment: " 'Of course, I am alwae anxious to win every game but 1 want to Win them all fairly.' "This is the attitude ot diminutive 'Oliver Gordon, baaketlxJl coSch at Avalon High School. An 1 he revealed the true caliber of a champion sportsman, for he made his si-atoment just after his team had beon beaten by Sewickley High, School -all because Gordon stuck to his philosophy. "Here is the incident which proved that his boy* are real champions even whoa they lose. '^Sewlckley and Avaln were battling on th,e latter's flo'r. The game had gone into a second extra period, and Sewiokley had lost so many players on pwaonal fouls aud by ma/klng substitutions that It liad only four men, available. "Goadon insisted: on taking on* of his own lads out of the game to 'even things up,'.as.he put !'.. He said ho didn't want to beat a fourman team, except on e^err terms. And fortuno decreed that he should loso it, after sacrificing one of his men. "'I teach my boys to fight hard for every point, but always fairly and in the right way,'8ald!orlon; 'I wouldn't tolerate crooked tactic t in any form.' "'I teaoh them first of all to play lair, which, after all, is sportsmanship itself.' "Gordon paid .tfco member.* ot his »j-uad a high cbni'pliinent. He said they are a flee, uprighi. hunch of boys, amenable to dlsdiiJino,without force, an rt themselves eager to employ none but fair tactics in thel;- games. "Their coach Is a -graduate of Slippery Rock Teachers College and the University ot Plttehu 'g. He coached junior high school te;tms at Charleroi before ^oing to Avalon. "Ralph Kearney le captain of the Avalon High team. He is a great admirer of his coach. " 'Wo like him be :a.uao he makes the right kind of an :ippeaJ to us, and because of his manliness,' »aid Ralph. 'He's a renl he-man, but he always taught us to give the other fellow a square dal.' " 'He coaches us 'o give our beet and we've been doiti;; that, though w-e are far from ,the top In our section of the W. P. I. A. L., with practically no chance to win the Section HI title.' "Coach Gordon k only G foot 7 inches in height, much shorter than some ot the boys on hts squad, and no taller than the smallest of them."

Annual Series Finds Fandom Aroused Despite Fact That Dunbar Is RETURN GAME HERE FRIDAY Northern Fayette county baeketball followers will ceot«r their attention tomorrow evening to the first game of the annual eerte* between ConnollH- vtUe and Dunbar Township, scheduled for the Eeteon'rlnff -No. 1 gymnasium. Ifandom is fully aware of the fighting spirit when these two ncighor- rlvnl Inotitutlone clash in any line ot competitive endeavor and the largest crowd that ha# assmbled thi« season at the D. T. court is expected to witness the opening- battle, Pa-st performances mean very little when the Red and Black Stacks up with th4' Oi-ange and .Black in vieVp of results \'or many years, and for that reason Ooker adlierents are not considering that the Shearer machine has chalked up 14 wins in 16 starts and that it also took the laurels in Section XII, W. P. I. A. League. Among £he clubs floored wa« Scottdale which suffered two reversals at the hands ot Dunar whereas, tho local quintet wan unable to chalk up a triumph in two starts. Bill Dok'ie has a scrappy combination of athletes and cloee followers Ot tha two clubs contend that thei fighting spirit is the big factor in thie series. The C'okera sprang a big surprise last year when they lo«t by a narrow margin to D. T. at Leisenring and then piled up a very decisive margin here, despite the fact that the' Red and Blacft machine had capture*! the pennant in its circuit divteion'and also bad piled up a tidy number of scalps. ' After the claeb tomorrow at ., ring, the teams will get down to hard workouts for the next two afteiv noons in preparation for the second: and last game ot tha eeriee--Friday evening at the Cokera' gymnasium. Tho local court also is «xpectwl to ba taxed to capacity and standing room will be- at: a premium aa riian^ Con^ 1 nellevllle rootei-a want to get »'- glimpse of the highly touted township contingent.
