More than 1,000 entries weretnade la the fifteen eventa scheduled, and while many of the shooters re-regis tered ander the terms of the con test, thereby swelling tbe entry list. It Is poative that upward of 1,000 Individual expert riflemen took part - la the game. Owing to the large number of contestante, It was found Impossi ble to complet? the record of all the various scores before Wednes day, with the exception of the three team matches decided?Division Team Match, Ship's Team Competi tion, and Primary Team Match. WaasJasrtea ? lab Ylrterleas. Of these latter the Washington Rifle Club won the Division Team Match. 100 yarda, twenty shots slow Are and four strings of changing po sitions, eight men in team; the Pri mary Team Match, over the navy primary team course, 100 yards, twenty shots alow Are. five prone. five kneeling, five squatting, and tve sitting, and four strings of changing position fire; and came second in the Ship's Team Compe tion Match, being narrowly beaten by the Monat Pleasant Navy Rifle Club, of Mount Pleasant, S. C. Twenty-two teama competed In the Division Team Match, regarded as the event of the meeting. Both It and the Ship's Team Competition Match furnished exciting sport, fif teen team? being entered In tbe lat tar. There was close competition all the way through between the Washington Rifle Club, No. 1. the Mount Pleasant Navy Rifle Range team. Virginia Beach Navy Rifle Range team, and the Peekskll Navy Rifle Range team, of Peekskill. SL Y. Washington had three teams entered ta this match?Washington Rine Club. No. 1: Washing-tun Rifle Club. No. ?. and Washington Rifle Club, No. 3? and for a time the latter led the field dtrring the alow fire course by several points. At this stage it was predicted that Washington would win both first and Second prises in the match, but a gale began blowing across the sights over tbe 500-yard course, having the effect of lowering all the scores to a ridicu lous fleure, and causing the element of luck to play an important part. At one time Mount Pleasant had forged ahead to such an extent that It led Washington, No. 1, by 65 points. Gradually, however, the Washington crack shots wore this lead down and by degrees attained a lead for them selves of S points over their nearest competitor. Their Joy wss short-lived, however, aa the navy boys from Mount Pleas ant. S. C. made a "Garrison finish" down the stretch and nosed out the , Washington champions, winning by a score of 1.897. against'l.SSS for Wash-! taigton Rifle Club. No. 1, out of -'. I'" possible.

TAKE LICENSE FROM A BAKER FORW1RPERIOD William Christopher Cut Off by Food Head Wilson. The bakers' license Issued to Will ism Christopher, a baker of 1S10 Seventh street northwest, waa re voked yesterday afternoon, and this morning hs will be formally notl fled by Clarence R. Wilson, Pood Administrator for the District of Columbia, that hs will not be per mitted to engage in the bakery busi ness until after the war./ , This action followed en Investi gation conducted by th? local Food Administrator, in which it was learned that he had repeatedly vio lated the food regulations. It Is the first case In this city where a busi ness was closed by the Food Ad ministration. Several weeks ago District Food Administrator Wilson closed three other bakeries for three days for violation? of the food regu lation?, but this I? tbe first drastic step' that has been taken here. > Tn the order revoking the bakers' license, Mr. Wilson said "that Chris, topher obtained a license as the successor of G. N. Condyles, of SIS Rhode Island avenue northwest, but that an Investigation showed that he did aot take over the stock and plant of Condyles, but opened busi ness at a new place, which proved that he was not therefore a legiti mate successor and that his license Issued upon that hypothesis should be revoked. , Violated Rel??. "It appeared from an examination of Christopher's books." Mr. Wilson said, "and from an Inspection of his bakery products also, that he hsd knowingly and willfully been using a proportion of wheat flour in his products, greatly in excess of that allowed by the regu lations." Christopher was given a hearing by Food Administrator Wilson on the ? complaint of C. C. Kockendorfer, chief of th? bakery dlvison of the District Food Administration, several weeks | ago. and claimed ignorance of the ! regulation?. Evidence was given at the hearing that Chrtatopher had been Informed by the salesman of a wholc I sale firm, that rye and whole-wheat ! flour were not substitutes, one of the rules he was charged with violating. Christopher did an extensive busl i ness in cakes snd pastries In Waah ! ington, much of the product of his 1 bakery being used by lunchrooms and ' cafeterias, especially those connected 1 with chain stores. ? Several other bakers have been sum : moned by Food Administrator Wilson I for hearings this week on citarne* I preferred against them by Chief I Knockendorfer of the bakery divi ITALIANS FOLLOW RETREATING HUNS ACROSS WAVE RIVER CONTINUED FB.OM F AGB ONU ? . .,.lured. In addition to others . 'jin.Joned by the Austrian*. I Tho Italians bridged th? river at Falso and Nerves*, and there was <i j further pursuit in that sector. [ Captara Mix Batteries. The Italians captured six batter lies on the west bsnk of the Piave in addition to guns on the opposite bank, showing the haste with which tbe enemy attempted to get away. The Italians have thrown a bridgehead up and acroas at Pont dl Piave for the use of the cavalry. (This operation would threaten the Austrians at Oderio.) They are advancing also from Capo Sile, near the Adriatic, where a bridgehead has been completed by the engineer. Hundreda are being taken prisoners. A situation such as this means the defeat of the Austrian reserves on tne Lower Piave. There are a fee.v trenches on the eastern side of the river. The lateral communications are bad. and the general situation in fact offers tremendous possibili ties to the Italians if they are able to continue the pursuit.' ST. S. Alrsaea Aid. American airmen continue aiding I the allied fliers in scattering disorder among the fleeing enemy corps. An- j other American is reported to have ! fallen Into the hands of the enemy when forced down between the Unes, j The whole Austrian right was Jeo- | pardlsed tonight by the rushing ca- ! valry and the employment of Aus- ' trian reserves In the Piave region Is believed impossible. The expected enemy diversion from the Asiago Plateau and the northern mountains has not developed to in terfere with the "cleaning up" In the Piave. -Many believe Berlin will brigade a number of lier troops with the Austrians before another assault is launched.

This plan will be followed all sum mer and fall as long a? there Is fruit and vegetable? on the farms. "By thla plan." Mr. Wilson said yesterday, "a great deal -of farm la bor will be saved and it will materially cut down the cost of such pro-luctn to tlie housewives of Washington. It will also save transportation, which figures so largely In the cost of fojd stuffs now, and with the several hour of dsylight In the evenings after working hour? here, a great number cf people ought to be able to take ad vantage of the plan of getting farm product? from nearby Mary is id ano Virginia for their own use for pre serving, even if they do not take advantage of the opportunities afford ed by the canning clubs of the com munity center?.

GERMAN PLOTS TO HIDE ENEMY ASSETS FOUND $3,500,000 Taken Over from New York Alien Firms. German plots to hide millions of dollsrs of enemy assets under the cloak of American corporations loaned for the purpose have been discovered by the Bureau of Investigation of the Alien Property Custodian, A. Mitchell Palmer. As a result of the disclosures, ?3,500,000 have been taken over by the goeVrnment and a number of Germans and German-Americana have Involved themselves in serious difficulties with the United Stale*. The concerns taken over by the Allen Property Custodian are Dlecker hoff, Raffloer A - Company, of M0 Broadway. New York: Raffloer. Er belch & Company, cordage manufac turers of the same address, and the American Storage Company, of Ha vana. The majority of the owners of these firms are either Germans or naturalized Americans. They are Ewald C? Dleckerhoff, who haa lived in this country for fifteen years, but has never been naturalized; Rudolph Erbelch, a native of Germany, but now a naturalised American, and William H. Ehrhart, an American citi zen with a number of close relatives living In Germany. Asserted Sale* Regalar. These concerns filed returns with ihe alien property custodian, showing j no enemy owned property wbatso- I ever. Ersieh and Dleckerhoff filed voluminous affidavits, swearing such transfera as had been made were I executed In good faith to carry out I a plan they had had In contempla tion for some time. Their attorney, | George Carlton Coiristock, filed an , elaborate brief, asserting that the sales noted in the transaction were ? unconditional and not made with any thought to evade the law. Francis P. Carvan, director of the ' bureau of investigation, however, took I the matter under investigation before ' these reports were accepted, and dis covered that the entire scheme was ? a cleverly disguised method of hiding enemy property, and that the reports and affidavits filed were fraudulent The lawyer. Comstock, had devised the plan and had written to Dlecker- ' hoff on March 1?, 1917. advising him ? to transfer his property to corpora- I lions which would be able to hold the I property free from the restrictions j that would be placed upon them as j enemy property. He also stated that , he had corporations that would be ! willing to be used for the purpose. Took romsteck* Advtr?. He also advised Dleckerhoff in this letter to sell the stock of enemy aliens lu the firm of Dieckerhoff. Raffloer A Co. to sAme company that wo'ild ap pear to take the title, and pay them ] the price in three years, or return the ? property. The concerns mentioned above fol lowed the lawyer's advice and the tirm of Dleckerhoff, Raffloer &- Co. Sought all the stock owned by stock holders in Germany. The property was then sold to German-Americans. citizens of the United States. At the sime time Dleckerhoff put his prop ? rty Into the hands of a firm known ' is the Knickerbocker Investors' Com- ? pany. ? The others disposed of their prop-1 erty In much the same mannt r. fol- I lowing the advice of Comstock. When ' accused by the Bureau of Investiga- - lions, they were unable to offer an j explanation for the transactions. The ? lien property custodian at once took : iver the property concerned, deter- ? mined the connection of Dieckerhoff i with the firms, stopped his salary ??? . aused steps to be taken for the resti- ? lutlon of the ?.500,??00 distributed to Haffloer-Erhslch stockholders.
