HIGH SCHOOL SERIES
Stenographers Looked Upon by
Many as Dark Horse, and
Will Be Watched.
Eastern and Business formally open
the 1U13 struBKle for the baseball su
premacy of the Washington hlffh
schools tomorrow afternoon at Na
tional Park at 3 o'clock.
The fact that Torn Fisher. Eastern's
all-around athlete, will make an ap
pearance with the Capitol Hill team,
following his reinstatement at the
high school Is calculated to strength
en the team on account of hitting,
which has been woefully lacking this
For the Light Blue and White John
son has been nominated to do the box
honors and how well he will acquit
himself Is only a matter of conjecture
for the followers of the team. Busi
ness, on the other hand, is placing Its
hopes on "Speed" Keppy, who has
done excellent work all this year.
The Stenographers have played good
ball in all their engagements and are
looking forward to a win. Several
strong teams have been nut out of
corrfmlsslon by the Business nine and
the players at the .Rhode Island .Av
enue School, while not claiming the
pennant, say thev have as good a
team as any In the league.
Business is regarded as the dark
horse In the 1913 campaign. While
Western Is picked as the favorite.
Business on past performances has
clearly demonstrated Iti ability to
combine heavy hitting with good
pitching. Wood will catch Kelly In
the rame tomorrow.
Wilson is slated to hold down, first for
the Pen Pushers, while Brennon is
hooked for the midway rjosltion. Bornet
Is to play short while Derrick, who is
piloting the nine this year, will play
at third. Eldmayer, Hunt, and Boern
stein will make up the outfield. Elth
Hunt or Derrick are able to ito in the
lox so that Business seems to be well
fortified with pitching talent.
Eastern will have Captain Dyer be
hind the bat in the event that either
John son or Greer start the game.
While Johnson Is the logical choice.
Greet' may be called upon, and
will warm the bench. Three Fishers
are slated'for outfield positions, while
Horn Is on first, Lawson at second.

when rain and postponements have

Rixey Asks Locke
For Contract to Sign
PHILADELPHIA. P.. April 17.
Eppa Rixey reached an agreement with
Prlsedent Locke, of the Phllllei, today
aa regards the amount of money Eppa
is to receive of he reports to Boss
Dooln in Brooklyn on Friday. Eppa
called up the Phillies' head yesterday
morning; and asked Mr. Locke to scad
the contract rejected by Eppa In Janu
ary, declaring that the terms are satis
factory to him. This means that In all
likelihood the tall Virginian will be clad
in maroon and brown on Friday after
noon over at Ebbets Field.
The only possible hitch there might
be to prevent Eppa from reporting ts
that he may decide to cling to his for
mer idea of not reporting until June JL-
In that case ,a new contract will have
to be drawn up. There ia small likeli
hood of this happening, however. Blxey
left for Charlottesville just before noon
yesterday, to confer with the powers of
the University of Virginia. His signed,
contract will create no deaths due' to
the shock, of surprise If it arrives to I
day or tomorrow. ;
Some years ago the
clothing market was

a fraud on the wearer we
took a definite stand for all
wool fabrics in men's clothes
Now comes a time when high
er costs of materials and labor
are tempting everybody to low
prices for clothes; and we're
not afraid to meet the situa
tion by saying, plainly, that
you'd better pay $25 for a suit
of clothes, if you really want
the greatest value for your
jSome men can't afford to pay
S25; we make clothes to re
tail as low as $18; they're
good clothes; worth the
money. But many men are
wearing S15, S16.50, S17.50,
SIS suits who can afford
better clothes; there's econo
my in paying S25 for ours.
If you want to pay $35 or
S40, there's the same econo
my in them.
Be sure our mark is in them;
a small thing to look for, a big
thing to find.
