Dupsne Boston College BOSTON (UP) A slick Du- quesne University DasKetDau leam led from the opening whistle to the final horn last night to beat Boston College, 52 to 42, before 1097 fans at the Garden. In winning their 14th game in 16 starts, the Dukes overpowered tho shorter Boston College team to play their own brand of ball. Fast passing and quick pivot shots gave Duquesne an advantage throughout the battle, though Bos ton displayed aggressive backboard play. The Dukes throttled back in the second half when they built up a 22' point lead and Boston's inaccurate shooting showed no signs of straight ening out. Cut Down Margin Paced by center Tom Deegan, who led the scoring with 17 points, the Eagles staged a 14-point scoring splurge in the final period to trim the lead to 10 points by "game's end. Blond guard Ed Dahler scored 15 points for Duquesne. Rochester Wins Over Baltimore BALTIMORE (UP) The Roches ter Royals paid their last visit of the season to the Coliseum last night and trounced the Baltimore Bullets, 90 to 76, in a bitterly fought Basket ball Association of America game. The Bullets, led1 by veteran Chick Reiser, jumped into the lead at the start of the game and remained out in front until the opening minutes of the third period when Big Mike Novak sent the Royals into the fore, 54 to 53. Two fast field goals by center Arnie Risen, who led the scorers with 27 points sent the Royals on their win ning way. Bob Davies, who popped up in the thick of the fight through out the game, was second high scorer for the night with 25 points. Reiser also notched 25 points to show the way for Baltimore, while John (Stretch) Pelkington, a veteran of 15 years in professional basketball, was second for the Bullets with 17. TRADITIONAL RIVALS Maryland's basketball team meets the representatives of the University of Cincinnati this season for the first time. Beats a tne cnamDionsniD. t Catholic High now shares the run- ner-up post with Delone and the locals are one game behind York on the losing side, with five contests Ipft. Unless the Crusaders set bv Lebanon, which is within close reach of second place, they might well slip to fourth position. Delone also plays tonight, but is expected to have a much easier time with cellar-dwelling Lancaster. Need Win to Hold Place While a loss for Susquehanna would be a severe jolt to its title hopes, a defeat for Middletown would all but eliminate the Blue Raiders from the race. Susquehanna now trails Camp Hill by one game, and Middltown, in third place, is two games off the pace. Each has five contests remaining. No rhanee is exDected in the rank ing of the three leading contenders for the Central Pennsylvania League chamDionshirj. with Reading favored over John Harris, York over Her shey Industrial and Steelton over Lancaster. Harris struck winning form in its most recent encounter, with Hershey Industrial, and moves into Reading with a better spirit. The Pioneers also gave the Red Knights one of their stiffer tests in the first-hall campaign and, at the same time, held Connie Dettling, high-scoring center, well in check. However, the Knights who have lost only to Steelton in league nlay. are more "... . v . j than the Hill boys can be expected to handle. Guard Against Upset Possibility of a let-down is the only thing that might hurt Steelton at Lancaster. The Steamrollers were really up for their recent victory over Reading. If they play their usual brand of ball tonight,' they should dispose of the Red Roses handily.

However, before starting the elimination tourney, the Bubblers hope to dispose of York Springs in their lone remainine leaeue con test, at Mechanicsburg next Friday. This would give Coach Don beibert s lads a perfect record in league competition 10 victories in as many starts. The Bubblers sewed up the title by trouncing East Berlin at Mechanicsburg last night, 46 to 20. They held only a 7-to-5 lead at the first quarter, but in the second period amassed 17 points while limiting East Berlin to two and were in command thereafter.

We Hava the Answer . . . , ANTHRACITE & BITUMINOUS COAL for the coming midget .baseball one or more leagues, and officers of action that will be suitable to HE CAN SUE NOW Danny Gardella, former New York Giants outfielder, got another chance to press his $300,000 lawsuit against the Giants and the leagues, which barred him after he went to the Mexican League in 1946. United States Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court's dismissal of the suit.' ardella Urged To Reconsider WASHINGTON (AP) A baseball man turned Congressman said yesterday that organized baseball may suffer a death bloW from the law suit brought by Danny Gardella, former New York Giants player. Rep. A. S. (Sid) Herlong, D., Fla. urged in a House speech that Gardella reconsider his action "before is too late." Herlong was president , of the Florida State League before he ran for Congress. . He told the House the Gardella case "could well sound the death knell for the sport that has kindled the fires of ambition in the breasts of so many thousands of young Americans." The United States Court of Appeals in New York directed the Federal Court Tuesday to decide whether radio broadcasting and televising of baseball games has brought baseball within reach of Federal anti-trust laws. Gardella suspended by organized baseball in the United States, when he jumped his contract with the New York Giants in 1946 to play in Mexico, has sued for $300,000 dam ages. He claims organized oaseDan is a monopoly and h is being deprived of his livelihood by the suspension. His suit was first dismissed in District Court. On his appeal, how ever, the Court of Appeals ordered the lower court to hear the case. In Tuesday's decision, Judge Jerome N. Frank made it clear that he believes the reserve clause in baseball contracts is illegal. The clause gives the baseball club holding player's contract the exclusive right to his services and the right to sell or trade him. The individual player cannot negotiate for himself unless released by the club. Mickey Owen Fails to Support Gardella Case SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (UP) Danny Gardella got no sympathy at all today from former catcher Mickey Owen, who is in the same boat for "jumping" to the Mexican League. "I hope Gardella loses his suit said Owen. The former Brooklyn Dodger star revealed that he visiited Gardella recently and asked him to drop his suit but that Gardel'a refused. The United States Court a' Appeals has ordered that the case be tried even though it was thrown out of a lower court. I am in sympathy with organized baseball," said Owen. "Basebnli didn't force me to go to Mexico. It was my own weakness. If 1 have to sit out the full five years (the suspension received from organized baseball) I'll do it. But I won't sue baseball. It needs the reserve clause. ' Owen, who has devoted his time to farming during his suspension, said that "every player who jumped to the Mexican League has signed an appeal asking for reinstatement with the exception of Gardella. oul Goals Help St. Francis Win With each team collecting 23 field goals, the St. Francis quintet gained a 57-to-56 decision over the St. Peter's cagers on the basis of an ll-to-10 edge in foul conversions, last night in their Senior Parish League fray at the Catholic Youth Center. Harry DeFrank of St. Francis and Bill Zolgar of St. Peter's waged a scoring duel and also came out even With 15 points apiece. In other league contests, Powers chipped in with 15 points to pace the Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament team to a 45-to-35 victory over St. James and four heavy scorers marked Sacred Heart's triumph over Our Lady of Seven Sorrows, 57 to 50. DeSanto and Rodgers each had 12 Doints for Sacred Heart, while McCurdy collected 13 and Henry 10 St. dation was laid for the formation of were named to work out a plan ell concerned. Charles Whisler, president of the Harrisburg Optimists club was named as president of the new organization that still needs a name. The ener getic Whisler has been one of the prime movers in the work of getting midget ball started in this section and his choice for head of the new organization was almost a foregone conclusion. Bob Oiement, director of the Boy's Club of Harrisburg. another group anxious to get midget ball off to a good start, was named as vice-president, while Bob McClure was selected as secretary-treasurerr. Representatives from all the city's service clubs, two Catholic parishes, the Catholic Youth Center, the Cen tral YMCA, the Marine Corps league, and two independent clubs. one from Riverside and the other from Bressler, were all in attendance at the meeting held in Parlor D of the Penn-Harris hotel. The group was told that a diamond will be available for midget ball at the Boy's Club grounds, 13th and Berryhill streets, another will be built by the city on a site to be selected, and a third diamond will undoubtedly be made available in Colonial Park through the efforts of Bob Fohl. Bob Hawley, representing Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Church, 3rd and Woodbine streets, suggested that a census be taken of all boys between the ages of nine and twelve who are interested in playing midget ball during the coming summer. Hawley asked that the firehouses be designated as polling places and that the boys register there at their own convenience. In this manner it was expected that the men in charge of the proposed league, or leagues, would have a better idea of the number of boys who wish to take part in the sport. The registration plan was taken under advisement, but will probably be put into operation as the first step in determining the number of midget league teams, boys available for the proposed If enough interest is shown there may be two complete leagues operating in Harrisburg this summer, with two additional leagues on the West Shore, all eligible to send their champions to the state finals, which were held last year at Williamsport. Charge Indians kerSteal SAN JUAN, P. R. ( AP) Arti' Wilson, a hard-hitting Negro shortstop now playing in the Puerto Rican League, was signed yesterday by the Cleveland baseball club and shortly afterwards the New York Yankees accused the Indians of "unethical" practices. Wilson, 28, who batted .402 for Birmingham in the Negro American League last year, was signed personally by Tribe President Bill Veeck, who flew here with his trav eling secretary, Spud Goldstein. The Yankees announced last week they had approached Wilson. They were supposed to have the Negro star in the bag. In New York yesterday, George Weiss, general manager of the Yankees, said Cleveland "has acted unethically if not in direct violation of baseball law." He said he would present the Yan-kees side of the case fully sometime today. Veeck said Wilson would report to the Tribe's training camp in Tucson, Ariz., March 1. He said the rest would be up to Manager Lou Bou-dreau. Ten Cardinals in Fold for Season ST. LOUIS (AP) Shortstop Marty Marion, seven other players and two coaches have signed their 1949 contracts, the Cardinals' office announced yesterday. This will be the 31-year-old shortstop's 10th season with the Cardinals. His salary was not announced, but it is believed to be somewhere around $20,000. Marion reported that his injured knee, which slowed him down early last season, has completely healed. Also, he said, the back pains which once troubled him have disappeared. Besides Marion, those whose con tracts were announced as signed were Coaches Terry Moore and Buzzy Wares, utility man Erv Dusak, first baseman Nippy Jones and third baseman Don Lang of last year's squad. New players signing were infielder Eddie Kazak, second baseman Francis Haus and pitchers Bill Reeder and Cloyd Boyer. Mahanoy City Courtman Gets 7 JO in Two Games1 HONOLULU, T. H.

McKeever comes to LSU from the Chicago Rockets where he was head coach during last season. In 1947, he was head coach at the University of San Francisco, and in 1945-46, he was head coach at Cornell.

Hunt had been with the Bisons since 1942 with the exception of one season with the National League New York Rangers. Chicago Hawks Topple Rangers George Mikan, of the Minneapolis had set the previous record against -f- Washington last January 30 With 714 minutes of play remain ing, Fulks had boosted his total to 54 points. The six-foot, five-inch Fulks scored more than half of his team's points as the Warriors topped the Jets, 108 to 87. In breaking the record held by Mikan, Fulks sent 27 field goals and nine free throws through the nets. Fulks took 56 shots at the basket in racking up his 27 field goals. He, had 30 points In the first half, piling up 33 more after intermission, Fulks, current BAA leader, al though Mikan has played in fewer games and has a higher average, now has 1196 points for 46 games. Playing all but the last minute, Fulks scored 15 points in the first quarter, 15 in the S2cond, 19 in the third and 14 in the last. By making 33 in the second half, he also bettered the league record of 31 for a half, held by New York's Carl Braun. Played by 5 Men Carlisle Towery, Price Brookfield, John Mandic, Leo Mogus and Jack Eskridge all tried unsuccessfully to stop the Warriors' 26-year-old star. Each fouled him at least once. Fulks, still weak from a stomach ailment which bothered him all last week, was dead-tired when Manager Eddie Gottlieb took him out for the first time with 58 seconds remaining. Fulks' previous high in the BAA was the 47 points he tallied against Providence this season. The 1611 points he scored in 70 BAA games, regular season and playoff, in 1946-47 is an all-time season record for professional basketball. The smallest crowd of the season of 1500 was on hand for Joe's spectacular performance because of a transportation strike that was due to go in tp effect at midnight The game itself was dominated by the Warriors after a 9-to-9 tie midway through the opening period. Then the home team spurted to a 23-to-14 edge at the quarter and 49-to-38 advantage at the half. In other league contests, the Lakers retained a narrow lead of five percentage points over the second-place Rochester Royals in the western division race by beating the New York Knickerbockers, 95 to 75, at Minneapolis, while the Royals were defeating the Baltimore Bullets, 90 to 76, at Baltimore. t Golden Gaels Get Even Split With Lebanon Foes An extra-period game was won and another lost by the Golden Gaels teams of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Church last night against respective' Lebanon St. Mary's quintets, at Lebanon.
