ATHLETIC FIELD TO HONOR HERO Memory of Captain Edward L Killion Perpetuated By University. Speaking at an impressive cere mony. Bishop Bhahan, rector of Cath olic University, delivered a touching eulogy on Capt Edward L. Killion, of Maiden. Mass.. ,a former student of the university to whom the athletic field w-as dedicated yesterday after noon. Killion was fatally wounded while leading hia troops in Septem ber. 1313. In the course of hia remarks. Bishop Shahan emphasized the fact that it wa? the first time that a student's name had been given to anything connected with the university, adding that In the future, as the university grew, buildings would most likely bear the names of students of dis tinction. but all would look to Kil lion Field and remember the hero who had upheld the standards of the student body in the great *aq*. Father Daly, a United States army chaplain, spoke on the fitness of ded icating the scene of all future ath letic contests to a former student with such an extraordinary athletic career as Capt Killion. Lieut Michael Shortleigh. a class mate of Kllllon's. paid a tribute to his dead comrade, telling how he had been with him when he sailed from this country and up to the time when he fell on the battlefield. Killlon's athletic career began in Maiden. Mass.. where he captained a high school eleven for three year*, following which he played tackle at Easfon College for three years, and then starred at Catholic University for two years as tackle on the foot ball team and at first base on the baseball team. Killion came to Catholic University In his senior year of college and re turned as a graduate student in the following year. 1917. In May of that year he left the university to enter the first Officers' Training Camp at f*amp Devens. Ayer. Mass.. where h* was commissioned a captain of Infantry. He comes of a family of intense pa triotism. One brother. John E. Kil lion. enlisted from the Philippines, where he was a missionary. Another brother. Thomas Killion. left China, where he was a manager for the Standard Oil Co., to Join the United States forces in France, while the dead captain gave up a position in a New York bank to answer the call for soldiers. I Among those present were Capt. I KUllon's mother. Mrs. Hannah E. Kil lion, of Maiden, Mass.: First Lieut. Thomas Killion and Lieut. John A. Killion, an army chaplain, both of j whom were with their brether In J France when he died: the Rt. Rev. Thomas J. Shahan. rector of the uni versity. who presided at the exercises; Very Rev. George Daugherty, vice rector. members of the university faculty, and a large number of the student body and representatives of the alumni, many of whom are still In uniform. The dedicatory exercises were the first of a series of gatherings of the alumni who are holding their annual reunion yesterday and today. Since the university has returned to nor mal conditions after the ending of the war. an era of prosperity for the uni versity and unusual activity in sports is expected. It is the purpose at the present meeting of the alumni to dis cuss plans for a larger university.

Stop to consider what produces wrinkles and sagginess of the skin. Premature aging, mal-nutrition, etc.. cause the flesh to shrink, lose its youthful plumpness and firmness. Th# skin then is too large for the flesh underneath; doesn't fit tight ly a\l snugly as it used to?it wrinkles or sags. It must be plain that to tighten th?* skin, make it fit the face per fpr?tly ' n every place, will effect ually remove the hateful wrinkles and bug* mess. This is easily and harmlessly accomplished by dis solving an ounce of powdered saxo lite in a half pint of witch hazel and using the solution as a face wash. The ingredients you can get at any drug store. The results are surprising. The skin immediately tightens up, becoming firm and fresh as in youth. Every wrinkle and sag are affected at onc^.?Adv. COAL FACTS The figures for Anthracite production for the first part of May show that the producion is running 12 per cent below that of a yeaT ago, so that the large ton nage loss, recorded in February, March, and April, in stead of being overcome, is steadily growing larger as the weeks go by. If this state of affairs continues, which seems probable, there are reasons to fear a serious situation next winter. The producing interests, being flooded with orders for domestic sizes, have every incentive to speed up operations, but are unable to do so owing to labor con ditions. It is not at all likely that labor will become more plentiful, but, on the contrary, men are leaving the mining regions dafly. If the public will buy freely during the summer months, things may work oat the same as last year. The greatest danger is that too many consumers will fail to take advantage of the warnings to stock up. At present the retailers have but few orders they can fill, this is partly due to people insisting on having certain sizes that are available only in limited quantities and refusing to accept other sizes that are plentiful. The number of customers who have ordered a season's sup ply of Anthracite and expressed a willingness to take anything they can get that is suitable for their use 'is much smaller than a year ago, \ Consumers can assist largely in overcoming the chance of a serious fuel situation next winter by placing their orders without further delay, by so doing the retail dealer will have daily work, securing the coal and get ting it delivered. A united concentration, and no loss of time, will have a large bearing on the supply and demand of next winter's fuel. I find that it will be possible at this time to accept orders from my regular customers, and take orders of the trade wishing to place their order with me, limiting the amount to the extent of filling the orders with coals carefuly selected from the best mines. Inquiries by mail or telephone are solicited and given the attention due soon as received. A representative will call if requested. /?bW. W. GRIFFITH/Mb ^jj| B & O. R. R. Trestle V 1st and N Sts. N.
