PAGE EIGHT. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. SATURDAY, MARCH 12, i'JMS. GITY Sporforiais By JOHN II. WHOKIC Sports Editor WHAT NOW, JIAXIE BAER? Max Baer, ever unpredictable, dished out one of the worst lacings ever absorbed by Tommy Farr, the British title holder, as he avenged a trimming he got in London sometime ago and the grudge fight last night in New York saw the coal miner from Tonypandy dropped to the canvass three times, something Brown Bomber Louis and Cinderella Jim Braddock couldn't do. Only, the Welshman's gamcness and a jaw that must have been made o£ cast iron enabled him to go the distance as he was a badly whipped fighter when he lett the ring after 15 rounds o£ bruising, savage milling. Baer won at least 30, possibly 11 rounds, to show up in his savage self of years ago. Although one eye was completely closed for the last six rounds, he was not to bo denied as he made a great stride on his fistic comeback trial which he says will end with his regaining the world's heavyweight crown now worn by Joe Louis. There were many who 'couldn't sec Baer the winner, possibly many felt that way. because they were pulling lor Farr. but Max gave an account of himself that turned the booes oE some 18,200 I' cheers as he decisively laced the Welshman. Jf he makes up his mind to fight and stick to this Baer'may regain some popularity. But no one can'predict what the Livermore (Cal.) Lothario will do. Some say that his missus can straighten him out. Let's hope that's true. Dunbar Township High Defeats Georges Quint te Big Scoring D r i v e in Third Quarter Gives Leisenring Win. POINT MARION, REDSTONE COP WARDEN'S PREPARE FOR FOREST FIRES Approach of warm weather is a reminder to the forest fire wardens of the returning fire season .that is responsible for a heavy toll every year in acreage burned over and wild life lost as well as some property damage and occasionally a lost life. Fires last year burned over 33,850 acres or an average of 12.5 acres for each fire, the lowest in history. The outstanding record was the low cost of fire extinction and fire suppression. Fire wardens and iowcrmen, who are checking their equipment, arc asking persons who have occasion to go into the woods to exercise extreme caution, claiming that most of the fires are caused uy carelessness. Too, many are of incendiary origin. More care in use o£ matches and discarded smokes--cigarct and cigar stubs and pipe ashes--would materially cut down this loss. Dunbar Township High scored a 33 to 23 decision over Georges Township to move into the semi-final round ot the Class B competition in the Fayctte county undergraduate basketball tournament at. South Union Township High gymr.nsium Friday night. In the other Class B game, Point Marion defeated South Union, 28 to 25, while the Class A setto .found Redstone Township nosing out German Township by a score of 24 to 23. Play will be resumed Thursday night, March 17, with the 7 o'clock game bringing together North Union and Fayettc City, and 8 i/clock Point Marion and Dunbar in the Class B program xvhilo an hour later Brownsville vies with Uniontown, winner of which plays Redstone on Friday March 18, when the finals ore scheduled. Georges started out as though il was going to make short work oJ Leisenring, moving into a 9-4 leac at the first quarter but soon Dunbai began to click and trailed, 17-14, a' the half. The drive wns continued through the third period and Dunbar moved into the lead, 28-13, and then added another point to the advantage in the final round. Johnny Hcrchko, who at times has been the sparkplug of the Keel and Black in the past season, walked off with individual honors as he scored a total of 17 points, collecting seven double-deckers and three fouls.

It's not on the barren, eroded hillsides that you find the most game but on land where good conservation practices are in effect. The Soil Conservation Service is doing a fine task in enhancing wild life facilities, matting a plan for the entire farm. Odd corners, gullies and areas unfit for profitable cultivation are planted 1o shrubs and grass to control erosion. Wild iifc is encouraged on these areas. It is a source of income for food and protection of. crops from injurious insects and also provides pleasure and recreation for the farmer and his friends.

"three out of five," the tilt takes on an important aspect as the Westinghouse stands in a position to annex the gonfalon and the Caseys will be with their backs to the wall. Joe May's quintet is out to make it three in a row but Jimmy Albino says the Caseys have been "taking it easy, sort of spotting the icemen a couple to make the series even." It was impossible to continue the series after the two games because the Armory was being prepared for the annual Federal and State inspection of the city's two units of the National Guard scheduled for Monday night. There will be an interesting preliminary game, the team managers announced. Y. M. C.
