Syracuse Herald Journal- Pro Five Can’t Play Sundays
Although they were only preparing for tonight’s game at Rochester with the Rochester Royals, the Syracuse Nationals basketball team suffered a reverse yesterday when the appeal to Brig.-Gen. Ames T. Brown to allow them to use the State Armory for Sunday night games was turned down. In arranging the league schedule co-owners Dan Biasone and George Mingin had believed Sunday night basketball would be allowed and they had arranged for 10 games during the year on Sabbaths. First of these games was to be tomorrow night against Rochester with other games slated with Chicago, Sheboygan, Detroit, Buffalo, Toledo, Anderson, and Indianapolis. Since the schedule was approved a ruling has been issued by state authorities forbidding use of any armory on Sunday for competitive sports. Now the pros, who were first to make arrangements with Armory officials, are scrambling to rearrange the schedule to fit in with the dates still available during the week. Visiting clubs have all been contacted by wire and asked what other day other than Sunday they will be able to play. There is a strong possibility that games will be transferred to Monday nights whenever contract conflicts don’t occur.
