Charleston Daily Mail (Newspaper) - January 15, 1935, Charleston, West Virginia THE CHARLESTON DAILY MAIL, TUESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 15, 1955 PAGE NINE ADDITIONAL SPORTS HONS GO AFTER FIFTH STRAIGHT Greyhounds Are Expected to Give Capital Cagers Real Battle START AT 7:45 P. M. Tight Defense of SeibertV Proteges May Be Tough for Capitals Louis Adds Birkie to String MONTGOMERY, Jan. 15.—Clyde Hutson’s Charleston high school Mountain Lions will invade Montgomery on Tuesday night to meet the Greyhounds in one of the feature cage games of the local season at 7:45 p. rn. Although the Lions have always had the edge over Montgomery in football, the indoor basket-pitching sport is a different story, and contests between the two schools are always kard-fought, and end in a close score. Charleston comes to Montgomery undefeated and boasting a team of four veterans and several capable substitutes. Pitted against them will be Montgomery's two veterans, Spruce and Richards, and three new plaj’ers, Craig, Stacey and Smith. However, the new players have been getting good experience in past games and are gaining that confidence so necessary to a successful basket ball combination. A fifth straight victory will be the target at which the Mountain Lions will aim. Despite the fact that Montgomery has dropped three games this season, it has shown strength in its seven victories. Having played IO games so far, the Greyhounds have played six more than the Lions and this experience should prove to their advantage.    I    «pjle    e(jge    given    Spencer    is    slight The games lost by Montgomery were and comes about through a compari-at the hands of the powerful teams J son of the games played by Spencer of Parkersburg, Huntington and -and Ripley against Point Pleasant. BILL UPON FREE BOOKS IS READY OhJ-Age Pension Measure Also to Be Introduced in Lower House The statement that he would draw no color line in defense of his title hardly had been uttered by Max Baer when Joe Louis, Detroit’s dusky knockout artist, added another to his list of victims by scoring a technical kayo over Hans Birkie, German heavyweight, in the tenth round in Pittsburgh. Here is an action shot of the fight, showing Louis easily evading a wild right-hand punch of Birkie. It was Louis’ eleventh knockout in 14 starts as a professional. Spencer Favorite In Battle Tuesday SPENCER, Jan. 15.—Coach Clay Martin’s Spencer high school basket-eers will be installed the favorite for the first time this year when Coach Bert Goodwin’s Ripley quint is met here Tuesday night. Princeton. Charleston appears to have a stronger team than Montgomery, but a rivalry has been built up for the last several years reduces the importance of past showings in a game of this kind. The Lions have proven to be a high scoring team in the first four games, but they haven’t met a tough defense as yet. Montgomery teams have always been noted for their tight defense, and if the Lions can penetrate it to a large degree they may be assured of a successful season. Coach Clyde Hutson, of the Lions, indicate that he would use the lineup that has started the last three games. This means that Charley Ross and David Fleming will be at the forwards, with big John Shonk at center, and Crarnon Stanton and Merlyn Con-dit at the guards. Coacli Ed Seibert, of Montgomery has announced that Jake Miller of Bluefield will referee and admission will be 20 and 35 cents.

Pauli Is Floor Leader Senator James Pauli, Jr., young law yer. of Wellsburg, drew the chairman ship of the judiciary committee, for which post Senator Alvin J. Barnhart, of Charleston, had been mentioned. Senator Barnhart, however, was named to a place on the committee. By virtue of his chairmanship Senator Pauli became the majority floor leader. Luther R. Jones, of Madison, a newspaper publisher, was named by President Charles E. Hodges to the chairmanship of the finance committee, one of the most active and important committees of the upper house Senator Earl H. Smith, of Fairmont, also a newspaper man, drew the chairmanship of the education group. Commenting upon the committee line-up. President Hodges declared he believed the best way to develop good legislation was to develop the personal responsibility of the members. In the past, he said, the initiative and ability of many senators has been repressed. Every attache of the clerk’s office and of the whole senate will have to be “on his toes,” Clerk Lively declared. With 37 few attaches, he said, there will be plenty for everyone to do. To Submit Water Power Bill Senator Earl H. Smith, Democrat, Marion county, will offer a bill within a few days creating a water power authority for West Virginia, he said. The authority would have control over the development of water power in the streams of the state and to dispose of it “at a profit so small that domestic consumers of all classes may afford to use it,” the senator said. A five-member authority would be empowered to construct dams, generating plants and systems of distribution. The proposed measure also provides that the electric power produced by state-owned dams and plants must be offered to rural and other domestic consumers “at the lowest possible rate and in such manner as to encourage increased domestic and rural use of electricity.” Mr. Smith said his bill, if enacted, would not conflict with any plans of the federal government for hydroelectric development in the state.

'Jan. 15.—Montgomery basket ball teams will have a busy time this week. On Tuesday night in the high school gymnasium, the Charleston team will meet the Greyhounds of Montgomery high. The Mountain Lions are undefeated and are favored to win over Ed Seibert’s boys. After losing to Parkersburg and Huntington, Seibert has changed the tactics of his team and speeded up its offense. Opening whistle will be at 7:45 p. rn. On Wednesday afternoon, the Dunbar junior high cagers will meet Coach Doyle Wickline's juniors at 3 p. rn. in the junior high gym. The little Dunbar quinj. under Doc Noyes, decisively defeated Beckley and Mount View and this game will be a strong test for the local players. On Wednesday night, Kanawha college will invade the den of the New River State Golden Bears. This game will be played in the New River State gymnasium at 8 p. rn. Shifting Kelly to a forward position seemed to be a good move by Coach Harrick of the Bears, and aided the scoring power of the team as shown against Capitol City Commercial college Friday night. All three Montgomery teams are scheduled Friday night. The Bears, who play at home, will meet Concord college, at Athens, in the first conference game for New River this season. The junior high team will leave home for the first time and will go to Chelyan, as usual, has a strong combination. The Greyhounds will meet Richwood at Richwood. The rivalry between Montgomery and the Lumberjacks is intense and each team would greatly welcome a victory over the other. The football game between these two schools last fall resulted in a 13-13 tie, which leaves the suprem-ecy situation up to the basket ball combines. On Saturday night, the Greyhounds will return home to be hosts to the j Hinton Bobcats. Last week, Seibert’s I team defeated Hinton, 23-20, but only after overcoming a four-point lead which Hinton held at half-time. The game will begin at 7:45 o’clock.

The 1933 session, he I said, employed 96 attaches at a daily ' cost of $692: the session of 1931 employed 115 attaches, costing daily $983 and the daily payroll for the 134 attaches during the legislature of 1929 was $1,234. Clerk Lively called the attention of newspaper men to the fact that there will be no assistant sergeant-at-arms, or no clerks on warrants, mailing, and enrolled bills, and that committee clerks have been cut down to four, against 20 last session. The duties of secretary to the president and stenographer also have been combined, he said.

I FIRM ANSWERS DEMAND OF Has Already Discarded tin Blue Eagle, Rust Tells Washington Officials O. B. Rust, operator of a chain o: cut-rate cash and carry dry cleaninjE establishments, said Tuesday that hi: shops will continue to operate as thej have for months and that the Blue Eagle, which the NRA at Washington, threatened to take from him, was dis* carded seven or eight months ago. Mr. Rust returned Monday from Washington where he was called before NRA officials for a hearing on complaints that he was violating the NRA code. He said he took with him to Washington affidavits regarding the hours and wages of his employees, but "the NRA would not show me their affidavits, and I did not show them mine.” The hearing ended with nothing done, he said and added: ’’The NRA is the most ridiculous set-up ever conceived, "The compliance division was unfair to me in every way. They refused to give me any information, except that I had been charged with violation of the minimum hour and wage scale,” he said. Invited to Proceed “I was prepared to show that my firms were not violating the code, although we voluntarily discarded the Blue Eagle months ago. I saw no need of exhibiting my defense to the vague charges, however. I merely invited the NRA compliance officials to proceed with their prosecution.” When Mr. Rust returned from Washington, he found the following telegram, dated January IO, at his of-“After considering recommendation of compliance council following hearing of your case I find you have violated sections one B and D of article three and section two, zone three, and section three, zone three, of article four of the code for the cleaning and dyeing industry. On this finding you will be deprived five days from date of the right to display the Blue Eagle. Until then we shall give no publicity to this finding. “(Signed) By Direction of compliance and enforcement director, “L. J. Martin, chief compliance division.” Reply to Telegram He said his answer to the telegram ■was: “Retel January IO. Please be advised that our firms voluntarily removed the Blue Eagles that you speak of some seven or eight months in advance of your telegram notice. We considered at that time and do now that the only human beings on earth who have profited in any way under the ridiculous set-up of the NRA are those of the NRA division viz: Office chair warmers. If there were more men in these United States that could and would take the stand that I do there would be no need for such things as relief in this good country. Publicity will be given from our side as well as yours so pour it on thick and we will rub it in. “(Signed) O. B. Rust. Parrot Dry Cleaners and United Dry Cleaners, Inc.” M. Rust said Tuesday: “I am paying my employees all they are worth and in many cases that wage is far above that as prescribed by the NRA wage scale. My employees are paid in full in cash each Saturday and they are all satisfied, I am proud to say, with the conditions under which they are working.” Mr. Rust also charged that a movement is on foot to ask the legislature to pass laws prohibiting "cut rate” prices for cleaning and pressing and also to fix hours and wages.
