Apostoli, and Dr. John BITS HERE AND THERE Babe Kaiich, pro boxer recently returned to his home in Uniontown from Phoenix, Ariz., has organized an amateur boxing club in the coun- tyseat. He says he has several good boys coming along in flne shape and is anxious to match them. Any promoters interested in securing lads for a boxing show arc asked to drop a .line to his address, 91 Elma avenue, Uniontown. The Illinois Racing Bain (Jock) Sutherland,, -resigned I Commission allotted 158 days of horse football coach of the University of Pittsburgh, to appear here. Dr. William p. McClelland,, former rnember-'Of- the-State--Athletic-Commission,.is. trying to make the connections at'the instance oJE_Dr._ James V7rO'DBnoVan".o£."".the'::...conncrl.--· If they can possibly, make arrangements 'to :get away from .the city,, the two will be here, is the..latest word from Pittsburgh. Billy 'Carter, who' is malchrnaking the shows for the I. C..H. S. A. C., has been spending a lot of time trying to work up one of the finest fistic cards ever presented here. He is looking only for A-l boys of Western Pennsylvania so that fan- dom will continue to clamor for more fights here. Paramount Dribblers Lose Clash. Paramount basketball quintet was Dliminated in the Sun-Telegraph A. A. U. tournament when It dropped a 14-34 decision to the strong Hctky's Boys' Club of Ambridge in a game played in Pittsburgh. Except for the second quarter in which the victors gained a comfortable margin it was a nip and tuck battle. s In a game played previously at North Union the Paramount baske- teers swamped the North Union Senior Patrol quintet by a 30-8 score.

TOURNAM BAKERS PULL ONE FROM FIRE Baker's Garagemen of Connellsville pulled the biggest upsc-t to date in the Gold Medal tournacnent .when they rushed to a last minute 25 to 2-1 victory over the classy Peters Packing Company of Greensburg at the Armory Thursday night. The Packers were, along with the Paramount Theatres, tourney favorites in the lightweight division but after a brilliant first half in which they paced their opponents 17 to 5, they slumped _ .,,.,, , . . _ . . . ,, , badly to pass out of the picture.

Thc bad luck that has dogged last year's "big horses" has overtaken Stagehand, leading money- winner of 1038. Colonel E. Maxwell has announced the retirement ot the colt for one year because of a leg injury- A similar injury made Sea- biscuit pass up the $100,000 Santa Anita handicap while a fever forced War Admiral out of the $50,000 Widener Challenge Cup race. . . The million-dollar title brawl Heavyweight Champion Joe Louis losers. The Casey- Wahvorth game in the senior class went 11 minutes before either team scored a point, which is some kind of a record in this age of fire-house basketball. WaHvorth used the Westminster College zone defense system and effectively smothered Casey's first half scoring efforts.

Two Clashes Tonight's High Spots in Tourney Two games that will be very much under the glare ot thc spot light In the tournament tonight are the Cascy-Ovcrholt and the Morgan- town-Swissvalc tussles. The rivalry between the local passers and the disiilicrs needs no fanning or build up. However Overholt does feel that they are due to upset the Fayette county champions and will be out there tonight grimly determined to eliminate their high flying rivals from further tournament competition. The fans who were privileged to periods looked as small as a WPA Set the first peck at the Morgan- pay check. The score board read I town Coca Colas Wednesday night Casey 9, Walworth 8.

YOUGH VALLEY BOARD DINES W. L. Lewis, a teacher in Connellsville High School and one of the oldest basketball officials in point of service in the district, was one oC the principal speakers at the banquet held in Brownsville by the members of the Yough Valley Local Board of Approved Basketball Officials. Pointing out the development of the floor sport in the district Mr. Lewis recalled that back in 1920 when he broke in as an official here there were only two others similarly engaged, Eddie Wall of Scottdale and Bob Austin, then located in Uniontown and now supervising principal of Brownsville schools. He told of the organization of the Yough Valley Board of Approved Basketball Officials in 1926 with 10 members. They were Merle Waugh- man 'and Eddie Wall of Scottdale; Frank Stansberry, Harry Shockey, Bob Austin and George Sherbon of Uniontown, and E. S. Phillips, W. L. Lewis and Kobe Fisher of Connellsville. Lewis said he thought the present PIAA system of examining future basketball officials inadequate. He advocated a practical examination of prospective arbiters along with the regular written test. He gave credit for the rapid advancement of the sport to better coaching and officiating. E. Stanley Phillips, Connellsville High School principal, served as master of ceremonies. Others who made short talks were John Harper of Connellsville, retiring president; Continued on Page Fourteen.
