THE WASHLXOTOX TIMES, TUESDAY, MAY 28, 1912.
; TO BE ANNOUNCED
! THIS AFTERNOON
(Final Day of Drill Expected
l to Bring Thousands to
jj Nationals' Park.
More thousands will assemblo at the
American League ball park this after
noon to see Companies E and O of tho
Business High school, A, B and I of
Central Jllgh and F of Eastern drill In
the annual company contest of the High
School regiment. At the close the high
est score company of the two days will
be announced. Which of the McKlnley
Manual and 'Western High companies
that drilled yesterday scored the highest
total Is a matter of guesswork, with
opinions varying somewhat according to
the preference of the hundreds of rep
resentatives of the several schools.
One thing Is certain. Company D of
McKlnley Manual which won the prize
last year, went through its maneuvers
yesterday Jn a fashion to delight adher
ents of that school and to give them
l sh hopes of victory again this year.
But "dopesters" of the result have been
almost Invariably wrong In predicting
the" winner during the twenty-five years
these company contests have been held
and popular acclaim and the marks of
the Judges have not agreed.
. Military critics seemed to think that
fompany H of Western High drilled a
Ilttld better than M of the same school
yesterday while C of McKlnley ran D
close. K and L, of the McKlnley school
are still considered In the running by
Order of Appearance.
The companies In the order of appear
ance this afternoon and their officers
jare the following:
Company G, Business; captain, L. F.
'Cooper; first lieutenant, J. H. Mol
llneu; second lieutenant, J. H. Mines.
Company B, Central; captain, n. Sex
iton; first lieutenant, H. Sydenham;
leecond lieutenant, K. Metzerott.
Company I, Central; captain, M. A.
(Martin; first lieutenant, A. Bradshaw;
'second lieutenant, P. Stein.
. Company E, Business; captain, U. E.
Glessner; first lieutenant, W. S. Lyons;
leecond lieutenant, C. J. Blgham.
Company F, Eastern; captain, J. D.
.Cremer; first lieutenant, R. P. Whit
man; second lieutenant, E. C. Rice. Jr.
Company A. Central; captain. H. D.
Gordon; first lieutenant, R. P. Holllngs
ftvorth; second lieutenant, P. O. Potts.
When Captains BJornstad, Merrill and
'Allison of the regular army have cast
up tneir count on the last company,
compared the markings of today with
the scores of yesterday and determined
on tho winner the result will be an
nounced and the winning comnanv com
mander will receive the tronhv Mac nt
the hands of Gen. Leonard Wood, ohlpf
Will Cheer Winner.
Immediately from the throats of thou
sands of high school boys and girls will
go up one of the loudest cheers the ball
park has known in a long time, eclips
ing even the volume of noise in a crisis
In a ball game at tho same place.
The park this afternoon, like yester
day, will be a most animated place.
IHundreds and hundreds of pretty girls
idressed in their newest summer flnerv.
'sitting in the grandstands will hold
tense breath until the victory is an
nounced to one or other company.
The entire regiment will pass In re
view before General Wood at the end
of the afternoon. When the regiment
has disbanded there will b'j a Jollifica

When plans were first made this year
It did not seem that preparations would
be much more expensive than In 1911,
but this Illusion was soon dispelled.
President Taft accepted an invitation
some time ago to be present. It was
proposed that Cardinal Gibbons should
celebrate tho mass If hlB health per
mitted and that If he were unable to at
tend the Rev. Eugene DeL. McDonnell
of St. Aloyslus" Church would be the
celebrant. The Rev. William Russell of
St. Patrick's was expected to preach the
It had also been planned to have the
Rev. Mr. Chadwlck, chaplain of the
Maine, present at tho mass.
Word had been received from the va

eastern cities that they would send from
twenty-live to a hundred men each to
attend the mass. More than 3,000 sol

the thousands of Knights of Columbus
expected In Washington, as well as of
residents of the city.
No official word has been received at
Knights of Columbus headquarters of
n, rilKfnntlnnnnce of the nlans for the
field mass, but reliable Information of
the change. In plans was received there
last week. '
Efforts to recover tho bodies of Mrs.
Bessie Hnller and Mrs. Sarah Nlelson,
tho two young women who were
drowned Sunday night when the steam

Haibor precinct this morning.
The crews under direction of Lieu
tenant Dean nnd Sargeant Pnsnn.no
staited down the river at 8 o'clock to
continue dragging the river near the
.scene of tho accident. The police, how
ever, have but little hope of recover

current Is so strong at the place where
the boats come together that It Is be
lieved the bodies of the two women have
been carried some distance downstream.

Put Your Heads Together
Over This Proposition Tonight
We do not know what rent you pay but for argument's sake
let's say it's $25.00 per month.
Suppose you have only been paying rent for a year. Well, there
are 12 months in a year and that would make your year's rent cost
Within the next ten years your rent will in all probability go up
instead of down, bven though it should remain but $25.00, your
rent bill in ten years will amount to $3,000.
Now $3,000 is $250 more than the total price of one of those modern homes we are
selling on Columbia Heights.
If your present rent money is $25.00 per month, you can buy one of these homes
with less than that amount each month.
This is enough for you to think over tonight. Read our advertisement in tomor
row's Times and Star giving you many more reasons why you should be buying one
of these homes with your present rent money. The next day (Thursday) is a holi
day Decoration Day when making your arrangements to spend, the day, or a part
of it, provide for an inspection of these Columbia Heights homes. Do this and you
will recall Thursday, May 30th, 1912, as a "red letter" day in your life.
