FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 1938. THE DAILY COURIER. CONNELLSYILUS. PA. PAGE SBVENTEEtt. 15 COLLEGES ENTER DIVING, RACE-EVENTS Eastern Collegiate Water Meet Saturday Afternoon and Evening. - PITTSBURGH IS SCENE OF-CLASH MAXWELL BAE,R MOST MISUNDERSTpOD OF BOXERS, SAYS WALSH PITTSBURGH, Mar. 11.--The best swimmers and divers of the Eastern Collegiate Swimming Association will be in Pittsburgh next Saturday afternoon and evening for the association championships to be held at the Metropolitan Club pool. Fifteen schools arc expected to send entries for the championships, the team scoring in which was led last year by Franklin and Marshall's Diplomats. In addition F. M., other schools taking part will be Rutgers, Western Reserve, New York University, Lchigh, Lafayette, John Hopkins, Carnegie Tech, Manhattan, Swarthmore, Delaware St. Francis, Catholic University, George Washington and C. C. N. Y. Rutgers has usually walked away with team honors in this event, but last year F. M. came through, and this year thc Panthers of Pittsburgh loom as thc team to beat. Bolstered by a quartet of exceptionally good sophomores thc Panthers have come along undefeated to date. Even if Pitt and Franklin and Marshall were the only schools competing there would be a number ot 1937 winners and place-holders back this year. Add to these thc entries from Rutgers and N. Y. U., and the competition is certain to be as close as last year, when blanket finishes in all events wore the rule. Pitt's Walter Nowotny will be defending his 100 yard free style title, ' and Reaser of F. M., who took second last year also will be back. Reaser, also is the defending 50 yard title holder. Fcdor of Franklin and Marshall is to defend his 220 and 440 championships, and Locke of Pitt and Otis of Western Reserve, both place winners a year ago will be back to challenge him again. Grunert of F. M., 1937 backstroke champion is back along with Spanglcr of F. M., who took second In the 200 yard breast stroke. The Rutgers relay team which won last year in the 400 yard event wll be bolstered by the addition of a crack sophomore contingent. There will be trial heats In al events in the afternoon, and then on evening of finals beginning at 8 P. M Continued from Page Sixteen, est fighter in thc world. In addition, Baer probably can take i punch 'better than anybody now in he ring! and there's only one reason ic isn't as tough, mentally, as he is n a physical sense. Underneath all his bluster, he's as friendly as a stray (irdale. He wants everybody to like him--and you just can't feel that way nd work up a first rate snarl for the benefit of the gent in thc other corner. So much for Baer's complicated personality. For thc rest, he had a beautiful right hand discus-thrower's punch hat came like a flash of light out of nowhere nnd carried him all the way o the heavyweight championship of he world. He'd still be belting guys vith it if his hands had stayed whole. But they cracked up and so, in later years, he went into the ring minus he only thing that had ever .-nade him significant. Against Schmeling, Camera, Lavinsky and Shaaf he had looked vn- beatablc. Why? Because in the case of Schmeling and Camera, they did thc very thing that made his right land punch most effective. Camera nstinclively pulled back into it. Schmeling, with his crouch, leaned well to the right and .was nailed by the descending arc of the blow. Each was knocked very thoroughly out. In the case of Lcvinsky and Schoaf, he simply was tougher than a couple of blokes who, at thc time, were very tough in their own right--and so he knocked them out, too. In other words, Baer thrived because his opposition knew no way of .escaping a good resounding punch on the profile. A lot has been said about this being a "sucker punch;" that everybody saw it coming. If they did, they saw more than Schmcling and the others. As a matter of fact, they didn't. Thc punch is a "sneaker" and practically explodes all over your countenance without warning. But it's all that Baer has and he knows it. So he shuffles and capers and smirks and clowns with the idea of distracting your attention and getting you set for it at the proper distance, which is approximately one yard and a half. He could hardly hope to do that with a shifting target like Joe Louis yet he lust flicked Joseph's chin in the first round with an overhcac right which, knowing Joseph a? we now do, would have closed ths incident right there. That was Baer's one chance with Louis and he knew it wouldn't come again. He hac barely missed with a 1,000 to 1 sho and, having missed he might as \\ el have never thrown thc punch at all The rest was needless agony. Louis was pole-axeing him with the toughest punches I've seen slnco Dempscy and finally I found myself saying "Man, oh, man. You're not going ti take any more of those, arc you?' Almost as though he'd heard me Baer collapsed to his knees an itaycd there, causing come of ou: critics, who arc always utterly fearless in a case like that, to speak slightingly of the man's courage. It has always been this writer' idea that one more punch like tha might, indeed, have knocked Bac out--but permanently. It has jils been an idea of mind that, though he may be as curious a human dccu ment as we've had before us in many years, this Maxwell Addlemca Leisenring Junior Varsify Is Defeated By Orange and Black The Conncllsville High School Junior Varsity captured the two game scries with Dunbar Township Jayvces Tuesday night when it put on a drive in the final quarter to defeat Leisenring, 30 to 27, in thc preliminary to the varsity game.

With three minutes of playing time | Baer is not a quitter, rated oft hi left, the home club was out in front by four points but a sudden barrage o! field goals swung the tide of victory.
