games to see which team could claim hat
the amateur championship of the State.

The writer accompanied the team on Cle
this trip, which is a tiresome ride. The J
train was one hour late, and the boys son
were compelled to put on their uni- J H
forms on the train, not arriving until Jos
after four o'clock, they were rushed F
out to the park. and play was called in C -
a fcw minutes. The diamond was vet-v S, L
fast, thus causing our boys to make ra
seeral errors, bitt they soon got ac- F
customed to it, and after losing the Stol
first, took their opponents to ride for Ho
three straights, then lost Friday's con- \Vi
test, but on Saturday canme back and .

in contact with, trying at all times to ,
make their guests enjoy their stay, old
which they succecded in doing far . Th~

team appreciated the treatment of G

of 38 to 21, ending one of the most
bitterly contested legislative strug

ation of a government shipping board
to acquire and operate ships for re
habilitation of the American merchant
marine and appropriates $50,000,000
for the purpose to be raised by the sale
of Panama Canal bonds.
Several important amendments
were agreed to just before the final -
vote, among them one which would
reduce the salary of the shipping
board members from $10,000 to $7,500
a year. Other amendments passed in- i

president to seek adjustment of foreign

and to take retaliatory action if such ups
