Claiming That Troeli, Beaten
by Heer, Is Best, Demands
Another Tourney
That Frank M. Troch, of Vancou
ver, W asli., is the best trapshooter in
the land, notwithstanding his defeat
by Billy Heer. is the opinion of the
trapshooting fraternity along the Pa
cific coast.
Troch and Heer, it will be remem
bered, shot a 500-target match last
June as the feature event of the
Northwest Sportsmen's Association
tournament at Seattle, Wash. Heer
won by four targets and his backers
gathered in a bushel of Liberty
The sportsmen who backed Troch
believe that the rightful home of
those Liberty Bonds is on the west
coast, and they are confident that if
Troch is given another opportunity
he can bring them back to their
proper roosting place.
The Northwest Sportsmen's Asso
ciation tournament this year will be
held under the auspices of the Port
land (Ore.) Gun Club at Everding
Park, in May, and the feature event
once more will be a match between
Frank Troch and a trapshooter to
be decided by the country at large.
In due course of time the North
west Sportsmen's Association will
Issue a defi in behalf of Troch, and
will at that time name the conditions
under which the match wil be shot.
The idea at this time is to issue a
challenge to any shooter in the world
—amateur or professional—for a
500-target event, spread over three
days. Instead of the two contestants
shooting, however, three other liigh
class amateurs shooters —the best
that can'be procured—will be placed
in the squad, making five men at
the traps.
Last year Troch and Heer shot
" There is a feeling that Troch is a
better shooter in a squad than he is
in a competition tn which only two
are shooting. This may or may not
be true, but competition in which
only two are shooting better when
in a squad than when participating
in an individual match. Many shoot
ers are much better in squad shoot
ing than in Individual match shoot
ing—and know some others who can
break more targets the faster they
Anyway, the Northwest Sports
men's Association is going at the
event early enough to get a number
of stars on the heels of Troch before

Lancaster Gets Cold Feet
Declining Tech Game;
Soldiers Play Tonight
Tech High School basketball toss
ers were to open their Central Penn
basketball schedule this evening,
playing Lancaster High School, at
Chestnut Street Hall. The varsity
contest will begin at 8.15, with Dave
McConnell officiating. Prior to this
affair, the Sophs will oppose the Jun
iors, starting at 7.30. This contest
will be played to a conclusion before
the big game.
Scheduled to play Lancaster, the
Maroons will not meet the Red
Roses, but patrons will have a
chance to see the Marsh Run Army
Reservation team' in action. It all
happened this way:
After dilly-dallying around for
several years, Lancaster High School
finally got together five players to
represent the institution in the cage.
That was before they knew Tech
had been making athletic history.
Now they; seem to be looking for an
excuse to get out of the league, or
at least to keep from playing Tech,
so-ffiey dropped Percy Grubb several
telegrams and night letters dictating
terms and refusing to play if one
Carl Beck was in the same cage. The
read one of these yellow letters they
sent this way would lead one to think
Lancaster owned the league, and
that the league would just simply
"bust" without them.
Well, to make this story short.
Beck has ceased playing with the In
dependents and has donned the Ma
roon. The case was placed before
the executive committee of the P. I.
A. A., and that body decided that
playing on two teams by members of
the league must stop at once. And
that players who discontinue playing
will be In good standing in the
league. Miller, of Lebanon, has been
doing the same as Beck in playihg
with the Lebanon Professionals. Just

In the final game she made eleven

was only beaten out of a perfect

ray clipped three-fifths' of a second
from the world's swimming record
for the 100 yarde back stroke last
two weeks ago Reading High School
played an alumni team made up of
professionals. The Teeh manage
ment refused to allow Beck to play
so long as he participated With the
Independents. Now thut the Tech
athlete has decided to place school
spirit first, it would r>e unfair to him
to keep him out of the Tech lineup.
At that rate, he would be playing
with neither quintet.
Tech is anxious to meet Lancaster
and would have shown the visitors
every courtesy. But when it comes
to dictating terms, especially con
cerning the contest in this city, Tech
wants something to say. The rules
of the P. I. A. A. gover l the Central
Penn League, with the executive
committee in control. With consent
coming from that committee making
Beck and Miller eligible, providing
they cease to play at cncc, Tech is
breaking no rules of the league, and
Carl Beck is going to play.
Should Lancaster decide not to
take a chance, patrons will see just
as good a contest with the Marsh
Run Army Reservation team as a
substitute. There will positively be,
a game and Carl Beck will play.'
