The letter carriers' War Savings
Stamps contest Is now In Its last lap,
and every competitor Is exerting him
self to the utmost. The margins
separating the leaders In all three
sections are so slight that there Is
every reason to believe that when the
returns are finally counted tomorrow
night, they may show that contest
ants who are today fox down In the
list, have displaced them.
The sales recorded for yesterday
were $8,800, new high-water mark,
bringing the total to date of $31,300.
Tiffany at Top. .
Carrier Tiffany still occupies first
place in section No. 1 by an appar
ently comfortable margin, and the.
sensation of the day was the ousting
oi Greer from the second position by
Riley SpilcerV who developed a burst
of speed that won for him the "runner-up"
place. Emanuel Hoffman
cemented his hold on the fourth rung,
while Eridwell "nosed out" Ashford.
In Section No. 2, Carrier "Alphabet"
Main established his right to the top
of the list, but Carrier Houchen. sec
ond in the order of sales as an
nounced yesterday, showed no acti
vity, dropping back to fifth, with
Mayer, Sachs, and Winston ahead of
A- J. Baker, who from the start
has headed the list of men In Section
No. 3, now has sales of nearly $1,000
to his credit. Burga and Turner still
occupy second and third places,
Itallrosd 31 en ralriotle.
Carrier Winston's advance for the
day is raid to be partly attributed to
the fact that he met at an opportune
time a citizen of the southeast sec
tion, who Is an employe of the South
ern railway The latter had Just re
ceived a check for back py due him
and turned over the entire amount,
more than $100, to Winston in return
for War Savings Stamps.
CANADA LOSES CASE
The international joint commission
has granted the application of the
Aluminum Company of America, i

Fault, near Massena, N. 1- overruling

as It would increase the output of
