Captain Wood, Veteran Hurler, Showed Fine Form And I Avenged Lacing Given Him By Uncle Sam's Wards In Contest Here Last Season. MOUNTAINEERS GOT 11 HARD DRIVES OFF KELLY Playing in prime form, after uncertain performances in the last few games, the baseball team. of \Y est Virginia Univer sity jolted the midshipmen Sat urday, winning a well played and interesting game bv 3 to 1. Wood, who went to the hill for the Mountain boys, had all sorts of stuff on the ball and the tniddies could do nothing with him until the ninth when they got a brace of bingles, which with as many errors gave them their only tally of the game. Until that inning, Wood Had been backed up in superb style. On his own ac count, he accepted eight chances, some of them hard to handle. He easily had the advantage over Kelly in hurling, forcing 8 batsmen to fan, compared to Kelly’s 2. He walked one and Kelly none. On the other hand Kelly was touched up for 11 clean singles. Except for the Harvard game, it was the only time this season that “Slim” has been hit hard. Each Faced Other Last Year The opposing hurlers also faced each other last season, but the story was entirely different. Last year the Middies pounced on Wood in the first session for six hits, and 8 runs, but tallied only one more after that. The final count then was 9 to 2. Wood was virtually the main show In Sat urday’s fracas, although DeVaugn played a brilliant game at the hot corner for the visitors. The Navy infield also pulled off some fine per formances at stages.

NEW YORK, May 7.—Prices on the New York stock exchange were sent tumbling today by the reaction from heavy buying started on a flood of or ders backed by worthless checks drawn on several Pennsylvania banka. More than a score of worthless checks were received by Wall street houses over the week-end. One of the checks was for $15,000 drawn on the Keystone National Bank, of Reading, Pa., to cover buying of Westinghouse and Reading stocks. Attempt To “Rig" Market; Claimed Others accompanied orders to buy New York Central stock. Reports from Philadelphia and Boston indi cated that similar orders and checks had been received on the exchanges there. Wall street brokers, declaring the perpetrators of the hoax obviously could have not expected to gain pos session of the stocks ordered since the orders were placed in the names of various reputable concerns, attributed the scheme of unscrupulous traders with a desire to “rig” the market. The orders, all posted so as to reach New York simultaneously before the opening ot he stock market this morn ing, were from Harrisburg, York, At lentown and Reading, Pa..

Several friends who visited him at the hospital late Saturday afternoon, noted much im provement in his general condition.
