WHOIUC Sports Editor LOOKING THINGS OVER Generosity of the Indian Creek Coal Coke Company in giving a 20-year lease to the City Recreation Commission on the 100-acre tract on \yhich is located -Camp Wildwood enables .the local body to proceed with an extensive program under the WPA to -make -necessary improve-merits/ No charge is made for th2 use of the land. Connellsville should always remember a friend like that. Camp Wildwood, an elaborate project that should give this community one of the finest summer playgrounds in Western Pennsylvania. .It -will'have everything that is needed to make it an ideal place for the city's :Boy and Girl Scouts this "year. Dizzy Dean, erstwhile talkative pitcher of the St. -Louis Cardinals whose silence has made him con- spicious as the major leaguers start tjicir spring training / season, ~:has night, agreed to be 'a good boy and do what Manager Frankic Frlsch tells him and to respect the rights of others on tl.c Cardinal squad--they're also expected to do their bit toward winning the National League crown. Dizzy's salary didn't come up to his demands but President Sam Brcadon had a "fatherly" talk with Jerome H. and promised him a flattering bonus if he gets back into the 20-wln bracket. Dizzy is too .good a pitcher to waste away and fandom in general hopes he learned something after his tailspin finish last year that will make him a better pitcher and more valuable player. - Jock Sutherland, grid skipper nt the University of Pittsburgh, has donned his longest'face-as;he views n pessimistic outlook for next football season. Jock told. the.Mercer County Pitt Club the new college policy will keep .him busy supervising the scholastic work of lus players as well I as their physicial development. The amateurism policy that has been put into effect will be watched with a great deal of interest, first, to see If the profs are sincere, and, · second, to determine to what extent grid players need a little extra help lo put them through school." Another season of dartball draws to a close and the players arc looking forward to the third annual banquet that will be held after Easter. It's a fascinating game and interest has been growing in it from year to year. If you haven't witnessed any, it isn't the fault of J. W. Carlton, press agent deluxe, who thinks the game ranks tops and who recommends it for both young and old. 1 BITS HERE AND THERE ' Brownsville school board rescinded a long standing policy of refusing use of the junior high school and auditorium by making the two rooms available to community organizations.
