SEVEN igh's Fourth Period Rally Overhauls St. Francis ALTOONA TRIBUNE. ALTOONA, PA., MONO AT, FEBRUARY 4, 1938 Catholic H Dazzled Prep Squad Handed 31-28 Reverse Finishing brilliantly In the face Of a 27-16 score against them at the end of the third quarter, Catholic High's dribblers yesterday overpowered St. Francis Prep, 31-28, on the Loretto college floor. TYailing 8-4 at the end of the first quarter, 19-8 at the half and 27-lfi when the third period was over, the locals stuck doggedly to the lob of overcoming the prep- sters. So thoroughly did they do their work that outclassed Prep scored only one point during the lively fourth quarter. Curran, who started at forward and was withdrawn late in the . third period, returned to the game In the fourth quarter as a guard and immediately dumped in the first of his three field goals that featured the close finish. , Less than three minutes remained with St. Francis leading 29-28, when Jim Behe, who relieved Rourke after the latter was. chased on personals, dropped in a field goal to put Altoona ahead for the first time during the game. A passing attack by Altoona, with Halllnan and Rustin as the key men, figured prominently in the last quarter spurt that dum-founded the collegiate quintet. Wol-ford and Curran, receiving down under the basket, flipped in fielders with a regularity that soon overtook the host outfit. Shortly before -the game ended McTagua- and Cessna of Prep had joined Rourke on the sidelines because of four personals. Wolford, playing his first game ' at guard since Coach Norb Rascher revised the lineup last week, topped the scorers with 11 points while McTague' totalled 10 for the losers. Catholic High's offense started to click late in the game after Curran returned to the lineup. He had been withdrawn near the close of the third quarter after a mixup .with McTague. The equad was in charge of Subby Irwin yesterday, Coach Rascher having been called to Chicago Thursday night because of his father's illness. Wednesday night the team meets Re-novo Catholic High at Cathedral hall. Altoona Field Foul T.P.

Sportsmen Bag 16th Victory Jug McSpaden Pacing Professional Golfers NEW YORK, Feb. 3. The professional golfers' association's "batting averages" for the winter .. circuit today find Harold (Jug) McSpaden, 26-year old Kansas City professional, leading the active barnstorming tournament performers by a half a stroke. McSpaden, winner of the recent Sacramento and San Francisco tournaments, played ten full rounds of golf during January for an average of 71 9-10 per round. Steadiness rather than sensational play accounted for his record. He broke 70 only once. The westerner's closest pursuer was tall Henry Pickard of Hershey, Pa. Pickard averaged 72 2-5. Tommy Armour, Bobby Cruick-shank, Bill Mehlhorn, MacDonald Smith and J. Turnesa were rated in that order ahead of McSpaden but they only played four rounds each. Armour averaged 70 1-4 strokes.

Erie Declines As Scholastic Cage Power MEADVILLE, Pa., Feb. 3.-W With the season heading into its second half, schoolboy basketball teams of the northwestern Pennsylvania area are engaged in a mad scramble for the championship titles of district 9 and 10. ' Erie East, champion of district 10 a year ago and winner in the inter-district playoff, and DuBois, champion of district 9, are finding it no easy job to repeat this season. East is having its troubles in its four-cornered section of the district, and the prediction has been freely made that either Oil City or FarrelI,both of them unbeaten in their respec tive leagues, will dethrone the team that has dominated district 10 five times since 1922. District 9, divided into two sec tions, has Warren, St. Marys and Kane fighting off the leadership of the northern group with Warren out in front by a half game. Brook- ville and Reynoldsvllle are tied for the lead in the southern section. Outstanding games In last week's play saw Farrell defeating Sharps-ville by 26-24, Brookville nosing DuBois 26-25. and St, Marys defeating Sheffield 31-29 and Warren 37-34.

He then calmly downed their quarferback for a 10-yard loss. This husky legislator, who lived in the country of the Sioux Indians and . spoke their language, played offensive halfback and defensive end on Minnesota's, western con ference champion elevens of 1903- 04. ' Despite a broken neck which forced him to wear a wire brace while pl.vIng, the 215-pound Bur dick was chosen as all-western end. The westerner could run 100 yards in a shade above 10 seconds. He says he has won lots of money running foot races at county fairs Although he . doubts modern players could get away with it, here's how he broke up the touchdown march in 1904: "Nebraska had first down on our th.rea yard line. There was intense excitement and everyone was so keyed up all they could think about was punching the ball across. "In the general pandemonium, I shifted across and lined up with the Nebraska forwards. When the ball was snapped I tore back and threw the quarterback for a 10- yard loss. And that ended Ne braska's threat." Burdick thinks modern football is more dangerous than the old game, because of the element of speed and power. "We didn't have the , direct pass from center.
