M Street High School was defeated by Armstrong Technical High base ball team yesterday afternoon by the score of 3 to 2. at the United States League Park. The game was by far the prettiest contest yet played In the High School series, and was marred only by ever present coaches in terfering with the game. Both teams played excellent ball. Tom Johnson and Toots Brown and Thad Taylor were much in the limelight for Armstrong, while Lem Harris was particularly bright In the box. In the last half of the ninth Tom John son got on first, stole second and drew a bad throw by the catcher, which was thrown away by the center fielder in the endeavor to catch Tom at third, who im mediately scored the winning run. The game yesterday leaves the series as much undecided as it was in the begin ning. for each of the three scnools has won one game and lost one. Mr. Wilkin son officiated in his usual flawless style.

BYBD. * Amateur day at the American League ball park will take place June 25. Man ager Griffith, after careful consideration, has decided that the mentioned date will be the most opportune time to hold the parade. The event will be an exceptionally note worthy one in amateur base ball. The fact that those in charge of organized professional ball are taking such an in terest in the work of those who are in the game for the sport's sake is bound to be appreciated. It is probable that the greatest num ber of amateur ball players ever got to gether in this city at one time will parade through the American League park, in an effort to capture some of the prizes that have been offered for the best uniformed teams, etc. Nearly every club in the city will make an attempt to win one of the prizes, and It is estimated that at least 500 players will be In the march. Boston will be playing a series here June 25, and after the parade is over the amateur teams will watch the profes sionals play their regularly scheduled game. The High School meet is to be held at the Maryland Agricultural College this year. The invitation was extended some time ago by the college authorities to the faculty advisers of the high schoolR and accepted. The meet will take place two w eeks from tomorrow, May 18. The high school games were held last year on the track at M. A. C. and the venture was quite a success. The young sters were well cared for by the Mary land Agricultural College authorities and the treatment accorded them was appre ciated to the extent that the Invitation was gladly accepted again this spring. The game yesterday in the Independ ence League was worth seeing. The .Southland and Aloyslus clubs battled to a 0-0 score for nine innings and the con test was about the best that has been played in the amateur leagues this sea son. It seemed that second base was about as far as any of the men on either team could get. In the last inning of the game Southland had men on first and second with but one down, but a neat play by Hines, who picked up a hard hit ball and cut off the runner at third, killed the chance for a score. Western High is asheduled to play the Naval Medical School this afternoon. Business is apt to prove more of an op ponent for Technical High today than that team expects. The Stenographers are not going to be an' easy aggregation to defeat by any means. Although it is generally conceded that the chances of the game are with Tech, if the breaks in the luck were to go with the Business nine it would be a mighty difficult matter for the Manual Trainers to win out. One factor that may help Tech consid erably is that the-marks go in today, and the result may be that some men will become eligible for today's game who will strengthen it to a considerable ex tent. Georgetown plays the University of Virginia this afternoon, and the game promises to be one well worth witnessing. The Blue and Gray nine has not been idle this week by any moans, nor has Virginia, which has been playing a series among the northern colleges with more or less success. Rixey will pitch for Virginia this aft ernoon in all probability, even though he did work three innings against the Uni versity of Pennsylvania yesterday. There is a possibility, though, that he may be given a day's rest and then be sent in tomorrow. Against Rixey Georgetown will most likely start White. The big heaver has proven himself about the most consistent heaver on the Georgetown staff. and he will probably be worked in an attempt to best the big left-hander who is the mainstay of the Orange and Blue nine. The Maryland Aggies will play Johns Hopkins tomorrow. The game was origi i nally scheduled to be played in Balti | more, but the fact that Hopkins field will be the scene of a lacrosse game to morrow between Hopkins and Swarth more. and also the track meet between the south Atlantic colleges compelled the Baltimore institution, to ask that the date be changed. Georgetown will send a track team to Baltimore tomorrow that is expected to win the first set of games held under the auspices of the South Atlantic Inter collegiate Association. The fact that the University of Virginia will not be repre sented would seem to indicate that the meet will resolve itself into a duel be tween Johns Hopkins and Georgetown as far as the point trophy is concerned. There is no denying the fact the men who will represent Georgetown are not in as good condition as they might be, but even at that they stand at least an even chance to secure the most points. Hop kins will have many more men entered, though, than will Georgetown, and its men will be in better condition. Those two factors may turn the tide in favor of the Baltimore aggregation. The 1911 Departmental Base Ball League pennant now graces the walls of Chief Clerk Thomson's room in the Poet Office Department building. It hangs over the silver loving cup which was presented to the Poet Office Depart ment base ball team last year on win ning the championship. The pennant, which Is beautifully made of navy blue silk, bears the inscription, "Departmental Baseball League. Post Office Department Champion, 1911." In orange letters. There is not much doubt that Frits Reuter will win both the 100 and 200 In the meet to be held by the Maryland Aggies next week. The Central young ster is better than any other scholastic athlete in this section in the dashes, and he will probably make a runaway of his two races unless shoved by his team mate, Blackistone. "Cy" MacDonald has signed a contract with the Cornell Company team and will start playing with that organisation Im mediately. Sheckels, a local amateur pitcher, has been suspended by the commission be cause of his failure to comply with the rules of that body. He signed two cen tracts, on? with a team in the Columbia League, the other in the Capital City. If Tech beats Business today and West ern were to win from Central next Tues day, there would be some excitement pre vailing over the last contest between Tech and Western, upon which would hinge the championship. It will be remembered that Tech and Western fought it out last year in an extra, game to decide the (pennant winner. Just how good a pitcher Rixey of Vir ginia is against college teams is shown by the fact that he struck out seven Uni versity of Pennsylvania men during the three innings he was on the mound. That only two out of nine men should be able to hit the ball at all goes to show that there is something in the remarks of those who have predicted a big league career for the Orange and Blue hurler. The Maryland Aggies have another chance .at St. Johns this year. The An napolis nine seems to have had some thing on the Farmers in recent years, but in the next contest, which is scheduled for May 20, there may be a different story, especially if the Aggies play the same kind of ball they did against Mt. St. Josephs. If White starts to pitch today it is likely that fury will work behind the bat. The two men have been battery partners for some time. The Potomac Electric Power Company team will have its catching staff aug mented considerably as soon as George town's season is over. Fury, who is one of the best hitters on the Blue and Gray nine, has signed a contract to play with Manager Gray's crowd In the Independ ence League this season, and his presence will help the nine a whole lot.

Manhattan vs. National. Southland and Aloysius battled nine in nings yesterday without result, darkness putting an end to a brilliant scoreless game. Both teams threatened to score at various times, but Ebert and Thomp son, who were working in superb form, proved themselves masters of the situa tion at critical periods. In two innings j only did more than three men face Ebert. Roach tripled in the first with two down and repeated in the fourth with one down, but was left at third on each occa sion. Thompson was not quite as fortunate In this respect, errors several times putting him in a hole. His work on these occa sions was exceptionally fine. Especially was this so in the seventh and eighth innings. In the seventh, with Rlston on as the result of an error, he fanned Hunt and Taylor and forced J. Shaffer to pop up to left. In the eighth, Carroll opened up with a triple, but the next three men were unable to get the ball out of the in field. Jack Spaulding, although handicapped by a sprained thumb, gave a stellar ex hibition of fielding. In the seventh he robbed Toomey of a hit by gathering in his short fly to left field while on the run and in the ninth he made a spectacular play on the same batter's drive to deep short. Cotton Loveless, who made quite a rep utation last year as a member of the Sherwood team In the Sunday School League, will soon be seen at short for Manager Hill's Loffler aggregation. Love less' temporary absence from the game has been caused by an injured knee, which has been slow to respond to treat ment. Manager Hill has obtained waivers on his star backstop, Norman Kraft, in or der that he may play with the Post Office team In the Departmental League. Kraft has been employed in the Post Office De partment for a number of years, and the manager of the team representing that department officially asked that he be I allowed to finish the season with the Mailmen, intimating that they had a priori right to his services. The sportsmanlike manner in which Manager Hill and the officials of the Independence League ac quiesced to this request is typical of the harmony which prevails in the rank and file of the league. ? I COLUMBIA LEAGUE. YESTERDAY'S RESULT. American Security, 6; Southern Rwy., 3. GAME~TODAY. Mount Pleasant vs. Kensington. By far the fastest and most interest-1 ing game of the week was played in the Columbia League yesterday, when Ameri can Security and Trust Company, mainly through a quick getaway, defeated South ern Railway by 6 to 3. The fielding of both teams was clean-cut, but three er rors being chalked up during the six ses sions of play. Fred Dyer made his debut as a pitcher | for the Bankers and showed that he pos sesses considerable ability as a mounds man. He allowed but five safeties, and retired four on strikes. Last year Dyer played regularly in the outfield, but it is understood that he will pitch in his turn with the rest this season. "<^hick" Riddle made a remarkably clever play in the second, when Marty West directed a vicious hit in his direc tion. The youngster made a great stop of the ball, but.'finding that he could not keep his balance, tossed the sphere to Shortstop McClean, who relayed it to first, retiring the batter. The play was easily the feature of the game and was a credit to those who figured im it. Incidentally, the Bankers are not going to have easy sailing in the Hill circuit if other teams play as Southern did yes terday. But for the batting fest enjoyed by the Trust Company nine in the open ing inning the game was an even affair all around, neither team showing an ad vantage in any department. Center Fielder Bolen connected for two of the Ave hits accredited the Railroad ers, one a doable. The youngster also gathered In two difficult chances in the outer garden. Wednesday's game, which resulted In a forfeit by Braddock to Southern, will be played over by mutual agreement of the managers. Manager Slay of Braddock showed true sportsmanship before the, game, when he waived technicall-! ties and refused to accept a forfeit when the Southern manager failed to put nine uniformed men on the field. For this reason the management of the Southernj team asked that the game be played | over. Mount Pleasant and Kensington are down for today's battle. Waters will probably pitch for the Hill boys, while Flynn. a youngster from Catholic Uni versity, is expected tm work for the suburbanite* i Tonight's Schedule and Last Right's Results in Bowling Tourney Mranr.:::::::*.:::::::: ^ *7 103 ARGTUB-CLASS B. rj__f 1st. 2d. 3d.Total*.

Park vs. Herald. .Manager Tipton's Andrews tribe handed the fast Seaton club a 7 to 5 beating yesterday In the new organization, the game being exciting from the start. Sev eral times the Seaton aggregation had good chances to tie the count, but Tipton was equal to the occasion and fanned the third man. Tipton served them over for the Cardinals, and pitched a good game, fan ning eleven and walking but one. The former outfielder has ueveloped Into a first rate pitcher, and the other clubs will have to hustle to beat him. But ten hits were registered, six by the losers and four toy the winners. The Seaton crew made six misplays, which figured in the scoring. Thompson pitched good ball, and but for the errors of the infielders would have landed the contest. The Herald club plays the faat Park tribe this afternoon, and a battle royal is assured the fans, as iManager Bell of the Newspaper lads is anxious to prove that he has another championship team, and will send Eddie Thompson to the | mound.

Anacostia vs. Lincoln Avenue. About 200 people witnessed the same yesterday, and the league will be one of the most popular in the District as soon as things get going properly. Crown of North Carolina while stealing second, which he reached safely, sprained a tendon in his ankle, which will cause him to be out of the game for about a month. It was found necessary to send him to the hospital and Casualty ambu lance was called for. " A funny incident happened during the game?that is, to the crowd. Henderson, playing center for North Carolina, went after a fly ball back of second base which hit him on the end of his finger. He grabbed it?the finger?shouting "It's broken," leaving the ball go, while the runners went tearing around the bases. He continued in the game. The field is in very bad condition, which is the cause of a great many of the er rors made, both in the in and out fields. It is expected that by Monday It will be put in first-class shape. H.

Cornell, 7; Navy Yard, 3. TODAY'S GAME. Pumpers vs. Cornell. Yesterday's game was more or less of a joke, Cornell winning from the southeast lads by the score of 7 to 3. Cornell could easily have doubled the score, as It had tallied five In the sixth when the game was called before the session was finished, the score reverting back to even innings. Three out of the four hits made by Navy Yard went for extra bases, two being triples and one a double. Noyes had a peculiar record for the day. He did not have a put out to his credit, although he is a catcher. He had two passed balls charged against him. Today's game should be a corker, as both Cornell and the Pampers have long been rivals, and both have clean slates so far. and are anxious to keep up la the race without losing a gama ?> ? | E. E. Y.

Umbaugh started, but he is not the Umbaugh of old, and after two innings retired in favor of Kehl. Station was unable to touch Frank Callow, and were blanked throughout, the final count being 11 to 0. Station has now lost two games, all that it has played, in fact, but league fol lowers expect to see Manager Nolan's tribe make it very interesting for the leaders before long. Poor catching and Indifferent twirling are the principal rea sons for defeat, and with improvement In these departments better played games are bound to result. As early as this in the season the ef forts of President J. F. Waters are being felt and appreciated by the followers of this circuit. To have one so learned in matters of base ball and with such a di recting disposition at the head of affairs, the league should call itself fortunate. The diamond is in the best of shape, ac commodations for spectators unexcelled in the city, and minor details are so smoothly worked out that the league is running on a midsummer basis J. Sullivan, Anderson and Frank Callow were the star performers with the stick, each rapping out two safe ones. One of Sullivan's was for three sacks, and sent runs over. Moye is playing a clever fielding game for the Station outfit, but has not struck his stride with the bat. "Shorty" has played several engagements in profes sional ball. LIKES NEW Y0EK GAME.

Mcin tosh, the Australian promoter, is to enter the field in New York city as the pro prietor of a big boxing club at which he hopes to stage most of the big fights of the season of 1913. The Frawley boxing law places no re strictions against foreigners or men who are not citizens of the state. All that is necessary is to obtain a lease of one year on a building approved by the fire commissioner, place a ten-thousand-dol lar bond in the controller's hands And then go ahead and match the fighters.
