PAGE SIXTEEN. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVTL1.E, PA. FRIDAY, MARCH 11; 13S. Basketball Basketball Sportorials By JOHN H. WHOEIC Sports Editor JOCK IN POLITICS? Jock Sutherland, Flit's football coach, has been suggested as a prospective candidate for Lieutenant Governor at the May 17 Republican primaries and the Pitt News, official publication o£ the student body at the University ol Pittsburgh, has taken a step in the right direction when it urges the land's No. 1 grid chieftain to keep away from politics. Jock has a great reputation in the Commonwealth and no-doubt could win many votes on his popularity in the athletic world but politics isn't the field for which Dr. Sutherland has fitted himself. He can do much more good for the youth of the country where he is--as football coach-and we hope that he'll not permit the use of his name in politics.- There's been too much talk about political football in other ways and Jock should not go in for football politics. Remember Bob Waddell? The college paper's editorial is rather pointed for the editors offer, among others, these salient points: "1--One doesn't have to have much on the ball to be a lieutenant governor. Practically anyone could handle the job. "2--To be considered one of the best football coaches in the country Is a position few men can hold. "3--In entering into a political campaign, you subject yourself to all 'ftorts of malicious political tricks." And, most important, the News points out: . I "If^you accept the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor and are elected, you can no longer coach, football teams in this university, according to the .principles laid 'down by the university in the Hovde case, .which provide that no one teaching at the university may hole outside positions." Brownsville Scores Decisive Win; Perry Bows to North Union COKERS LOSE IN FLOOR TOURNEY MOORE IN_ LIMELIGHT Johnny Moore, former Coker cage star and erstwhile Perry Township coach, continues to "have his finger in the athletic pie at Portsmouth Ohio. His SciotoviUe High Tartans are furnishing the big surprise in the Class A tournament at Athens, Ohio in that district by moving into the semi-finals to be played tonight. Th Tartans toppled Nelsonvillc, 33 to 23, with a strong last half assault The former local athlete has been having tremendous success in football, basketball, track and swimmini with his clubs getting stronger al the time through development o talent among the early undcrgradu ates.

L wrestling tournament at Waynesbur today and tomorrow. Mat Chairma H. A. Fischer said the system "give ·something more objective and mor concrete to measure than the method set forth in the National rules. It provides a method of rewarding aggressiveness and will eliminate awarding of titles merely on the contestant's ability to 'ride' or to stay behind" . . . Expended to include many'ncw features of special interest to fans, which add tojts value as a guide to baseball facts and figures, the Dope Book, published by the Sporting News, St Louis, Mo., has made its annual appearance as a prelude to the opening of the new baseball season . . .

Remember the 1937 undergraduate tournament at York Run when Dunbar Township made a sensational finish to defeat North Union in the Class B finals in one of tho greatest comebacks ever seen in Fayette basketball . . .

Referees are Instructed not to tolerate any unnecessary roughness, "facts" about the competition sponsored by the coaches association state ... Bowling is a recreation and not * sport, the Pennsylvania courts have ruled. If the judge would have watched the Reporters-Printers match the other night he'd have given it another classification. The Bronx cheers surely took it out of both groups. A*k, the typs who got beat. Jndergrqduate M e e t Sees Fayette City Trifj- "ping. Belle Vernonf.

FtB. 2 8 1 15 By DAVIS J. WALSH I. N. S. Sports Editor. NEW YORK, Mar. 11.--Probably the most misunderstood of our sterling young men of the prize' ring is Maxwell Addlchcad Baer, who is currently in our midst for the pur- xse of resuming n career that was mercifully deterred by the most sensible match the man over made, namely, matrimony. The best that can be said for him, professionally, Is that he went as far as and, indeed, i good deal further than might be expected with his rather limited equipment. The worst--also the least enlightening and accurate version--is what they're saying now, before his meeting tonight with Tommy Farr, the Britisher, at Madison Square Garden. They're saying that he never was meant to be a fighter; that he hasn't the stomach for it and that his brother, Buddy, has all the stuff that Max so obviously lacks. And they're wrong, both ways. Buddy is a nice, engaging soul. But he can't fight at oil. As for Max-He can lick anybody he can hit with the only punch he has', a blind- in,; right hand, and that went for Ciirncra, the late Ernie Schaaf and Levinsky. It still goes for Max Schmcling, supposed to be the great- Continued on Page Seventeen. - . 3 Totals -- . Referee--Stillwagon. Umpire--Harper. 17 Christian! G. Pcrrus, f _ 3 K. Brooks, f 2 F.

Perry Township v Trapping Case Is Heard by Matthews UNIONTOWN, Mar. 11.--Traps were set to trap trappers before Judge Ross S. Matthews, in the case of Albert Brotto and Martin Brotto, brothers, of Perry township, charged by Paul Martin, a neighbor, with the larceny of a trap valued at 35 cents. The three youths engaged in trapping animals in their neighborhood und antagonism developed when equipment was discovered missing at various times. Martin Brotto, who told the court he had been trapping for the last 11 years, explained he was always able to identify his own equipment because of a number he stamped on each trap and the plate, carrying his name, which is always attached to each one.
