WEDNESDAY, J1AKCH 2, 193S. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. · PAGEFIVK Basketball Basketball Sporforials By JOHN H. TVHOB1C Sports Editor BILL TEKKY HAS SECRET OF SUCCESS Every now and then you hear or read about someone who has discovered thc secret of success. In cauli- owcrdom, in the realm of grunters and groaners, the gridiron, baseball and sundry sports such a story bobs tip occasionally. · Lawton Carver, International News Service sports writer, tells about one fellow who has found the secret of success because he's going over in a big way even though not with some ot the Gotham fourth csiaters who vere taken for a ride by thc New York Giants' manager, Memphis Bill Terry. Carver writes from New York: Everybody else is taking pot shots at Bill Terry, manager o' the New York Giants and ,-iuthor of n best selling magazine piece (among the baseball writers) but his boss, Horace Stoneham, thinks he is perfect, and it looks as though the Man from Memphis will be around for a long time. · . The sniping at'Teny by the baseball writers was going on'at full blast recently, following his "expose" on the evils of the press, and it Was the best possible time to get from Stoneham his attitude toward his manager. He could go mealy-mouth, deferring comment until the fireworks subsided and thereby eliminate the chance of offending his friends among the writers. Or he could speak his piece. He spoke his piece. In reply to questions, he said without pulling any punches: "The only thing I'm interested in is the fact that Terry is the perfect manager for us. I think he has it all over the other managers in baseball--and that's why he was signcc to that five-year contract under which he is now working, -He bos givdn us three pennants in five years and I'm pretty sure nobody else coulc have done as well." * A few days later Terry popped into town for thc annual dinner of thc baseball writers, and everybody was expecting thc worst when once he and the press confronted each other but any and all altercations were .delayed to the last possible moment They say it took five people'to keep him off one newspaper man along toward early morning after everybody had been banqueting and taking on refreshments of one kind and another, but this happened in the privacy of a secluded corner, if at nil, and never made thc headlines. Meanwhile, he had sat down with thc writers in the Giants' offices anc amiably discussed his ball club, and even indulged in a little ribbing pro and con. When thc interview was drawing to a close, one of thc writers put on his topcoat and hat and sold: "Well, I've got to be going to rehearse for my part in the show the writers* dinner, the .part where we put you in thc grease." "That's O. K. with me," Tony said "I'm big enough to *ake it," and he did toko it without a wince while he ' sat through the show and saw himself portrayed as quite n reprehensible person all in good clean fun of course. · Some arc saying that once he begins to slip with what -seems to be a deteriorating club, the rcress wil' drive him out ot town, you can wonder about that one. ITo -has a flve-year contract in his pocket now --and his boss likes him. Thai sounds h'kc thc secret of success. oERMAN BOWS T.O REDSTONE IN FLAG: GAME Republic Captures Pennant in Section 14 in Play-Off. ROSTRAVER TWP: PLAYS FRIDAY The championship of Section 14, W. P. I. A. L., was captured by Rcd- stonc Township High as it defeated German Township by a score of 28 to 24 in a hectic struggle Tuesday night at Brownsville Junior High. It was nip and tuck throughout with the Republic boys taking the lead in the opening period and maintaining it nil the way. Redstone will tackle the winner of the Ccntervillc-Rostravcr Township game at Donora Friday night in a second round Class B elimination contest. Hostravcr did not lose a game in Section 18 during the pnst season in competing with Perry Townshrip, West Newton, Belle Vcr- non, Sewickley Township, Fayctte City and South Huntingdon Township. BITS HERE AND THERE Harry S. Jobes, president of the Northern Fayette County Baseball League, and Frank Uher, pitcher of the Dunbar entry, were in Pittsburgh last week talking with Bill Benswangcr, president of the Pittsburgh Pirates, to get aid for organized baseball in this region . . .

George Preston Marshall, owner of the professional champions, the Washington Redskins, appealed to the "sportsmanship o£ college presidents to protect us from, the commercialism of their institutions," after becoming irked when Columbia signed Cliff Battles as coach. "Professional football has n rule to protect colleges," he said. "We can't sign a school player during the four years he's schooling. They ought to draw up something like that to protect us" . . .

DUNBAR HERE FRIDAY NIGHT By United Press. PITTSBURGH, Mar. 2--The Pittsburgh buscbull brig embarked on another jaunt in search of a National League pennant today as the first group of players left Pittsburgh for Connellsvillc High School's basketball team, featuring Allic Lujack and company, ended its initial two- game series of floor competition with Immaculate Conception High by training camp at San Bernardino, grinding out a lo'psided 49-17 victory Cal. · i Tuesday night at the High School President William E. Benswangcr gymnasium. was in charge of the party which included Pitchers Russ Baucrs and Mace Brown, Coach Johnny Gooch, and two rookie pitchers, Howard Peckman and Eddie Maximovich, who are under contract to the Knoxville, Tenn., and Hutchinson, Kan., minor league clubs. When the train stops at Chicago tonight, the group will be augmented by Catcher Ray Bcrrcs, Pitchers Red Lucas and Ralph Williams. Coach Jewel Ens, Pitchers Joe Bowman, Bob Klinger and Kenneth Heintzcl- man will be picked up ot Omaha. Other members of the pitching and catching staff will go direct to training camp from their homes. The Even though the Cokcrs scored such an 'overwhelming victory, they seemed to be stale when it came to shooting. Their passing attack swept through the I. C. defenses with a surprising case but if the number of set shots, from under and from the corners that were missed, had been tallied the score would, at least have been doubled. Allie Lujack was no exception, being way off form and he probably missed-more "easy" Held attempts than he lias all season. At that he lod the scoring with 19 points--two more than the entire parochial team. Marakas and OLszcwski were exceptions and they pliiyed brilliantly. Marakas showed plenty of spirit as flrst workout is scheduled for next h( , mjxcd m tnc scrimmagcs at thc Saturday, under direction of Mana- bank board to takc most o£ the rc _ gcr Pic Traynor.

Jack Wilson, Boston Rcdsox pitcher, went to Columbia College, now known as Portland University in his teens and his big ambition was to become a football star. "You're just the man I've been looking for," the grid coach told him as he sized him up as a halfback prospect and when Jack told his father about it, the latter said: "You'll do nothing of the kind. I want you to concentrate on baseball. I think you have thc makings of a big league third baseman." His play at third wasn't so hot but he did swell upon being converted into a hurler. If Sammy Baugh, the brilliant football pitcher of thc Washington Pro Redskins, can make thc grade as n third sacker for the St. Louis Cardinals this summer, he may give up the gridiron game.

Failure of veteran members of the staff the past three years has prevented the Pirates from finishing in first or second place, ' The Pirates haven't won a pennant since 1927 when Owen (Donnie) Bush was manager. The closest they've come to winning was in 1932 and 1933 when they finished in thc runnerup spot. The Pirates will depend mostly on Russ Bauers, Cy Blanton, Joe Bowman and Jim Tobin to do thc regular hurling with help from Rookies Ken Hcintzelman, a . southpaw, Truett Sewell and Marvin Duke, and veterans Red Lucas, Bill Swift, hold down Lujack's scoring in thc manner in which he was guarded was any indication. But their efforts were to no avail as the Cokcr ace hit thc cords with six field goals and seven charity tosses. Lloyd George, Owl forward who starred in thc initial encounter, wasn't in the starting lineup due to illness but when substituted later came through with one field goal. Thc Night Riders gave a good account at the free line, scoring seven out of 10 tries while the Cokers only tallied nine out of 20.
