In Opening of Y. M. C. A. An
nual Instruction Classes—
Competition Later.
With squeals and yelp» of pure Joy
Over ÎBO boys yesterday took advan
tage of the swimming classes at the
T. M. C. Α., where the students In
the local grammar and other schools
Of the city are to be given Instruction
In swimming all this week with, the
exception of today.
It was the opening day of the an
nual swimming campaign and for
moat of the boys their first swim of
the year. There were some who could
earry out stroke· and others who.
could Just wallow, but they wallowed
With a vengeance, the temperature of
the day being an added Inducement,
The water In the pool Is lowered to
(our feat depth to do away with risks.
The boys are first taken to the gym
nasium, where they ar· given Instruc
tion In the "dog-paddle," or prelimi
nary crawl stroke. They are than
given a locker, soap, a towel, and a
bot ahower bath. After the shower
they go la the water. Thar· they are
put through the course of instruction
in stroke· and kicks, which they were
taught tn the gymnasium.
Clsssss of forty or fifty ar· taken
to th· pool at a time. Their period
their appreciation for the opportunity
to get lato the filtered pond, they
Voice In no small or quiet terms.
These classes are a part of the T.
M. O. A. slogan, "Every Man and Boy
in Perth Amboy a Swimmer," and
they have been highly successful dur
ing the past two years of their oper
ation. Men will b« gtven Instruction
individually, if they dealt'· It, the boys
being drilled only in classe·.
Following this week's Instructions
the classes will hold meets, In which
schools will compete against each
other for prisse. Th· meets will be
for th·-novice and for the boys who
have known something of swimming
previous to the classes.
Tonight the first tie In the volley
ball contests of the business men's
claaa of the Y. M. C. A. will be play
ed oft, when the team captained by
Ingvaard Grelaen will meet the team
which plays under the direction of
G. W. Wood. On Friday night, the
team of Jack Klein and Ben Goldber
ger will meet in the second play olf.
After that, there will be two matches
on each Tuesday and Friday nights,
until all of the tie» are played off.
The playing oft of the contests
Çromlses to be a hammer of an event,
he teams were closely enough
bunched and the competition lively
enough to warrant the expectalon of
wonderful excitement when the teams
start to play οft the games, which
wer· tied in the scheduled competi
tion, which ended last Friday.
Ther· wllf be only on· place to go
.aa far as the stun te of the grammar
school are concerned this afternoon,
anfl that is to hop over to the Copper
Works Held. In what promises to be
one of the liveliest rackets staffed
In the eighth grade league la ached-·

Room I and Room ■ oppose each
other. Just at the present time Room
I and Room St are tied for first hon
ors with Room I but one gam· In the
rear. The aspect given the situation
la that U Room S comes out victo
rious, there will be a three-cornered
tie-up which will necessitate the play
ing ob extra game·. A large banner
, ta ottered the winner. Room I were
on the top of the heap laat year and
secured the trophy for the biggeat
number of gamee won. The struggle
I# booked to start on the Copper
Work· diamond at 4 o'clock.
Practically «very rac

With life, Hmb and

they take no chances
on lubrication going
You cannot afford to
be less careful.

Keaabey, June (.—In a close and In
ter eating game of baseball played on
the school diamond yesterday after
noon, the boys from the fifth grade de
feated a team composed of players
from the sixth and seventh grades by
the tune of 11-10.
Parsler and Babo were the battery
for the lower classmen whereas aloft,
Reld and Rogan were In the points ■
for the upperclassmsn. Th· lower
classmen seemed to hare the same
cinched up to the seventh Inning,
when the score itood 11-1. But In the
next two Inning* the upperclasemen
started & batting rally coupled with
some errors by the fifth grader·,
which netted them eight runs, not
enough to win the game.
The game was close and Interesting
at the last stages. Parsler, the star
hurler of the Keaabey Rarltans, struck
out thirteen, while GHotf and Reld
made sixteen of the lower graders
whiff the breeze. Parsler allowed nine
hits of which Qloff secured two trip
les and Tiled one. Qloff and Rled only
allowed th· lower graders eight hits.
John Sabo, Joseph Romer, and Irwin
Pfeiffer each collected a two Backer.
Principal Ferdon officiated. The fifth
graders are strong contenders for the
championship of the school, not hay
ing been defeated as yet.
Ingots Lead, but Teams are
Even in Ability and
The factory league teama to date
have run true to predicted form. They
have completed the first round of
«rame·, and Saturday will aee the be
ginning of the aecond round. The In
g<)ti occupy top places, and the chem
ists last place. While the element of
luok seem· to have played a part In
the decision· on the games, still and
all, the general playing Of the teams
would place them just about as they
are in the present standing.
The Ingots are graoed with a team
of veteran players, and they have,
with very few exceptions, Justified the
confidence that they would top the
other teams pretty generally. Harry
Applegate has pitched f»lrly well In
the games to date, last Saturday be
ing nis poorest exhibition. But his
support has been such that when he
wobbled, the team held fast and
steady, with the result that they are
now in the lead, and have every hope
and confidence that they will maintain
that position.
The hard luok to date seems to have
been showered on Alner Jensen, the
crack pitcher of the A. 8. Λ R. team,
whose work has been splendid, bat
who has been handicapped by poor
fielding behind him. He won with ease
on Saturday, allowed his opponents
but four hits, and because his team
mates erred but onoe, certainly did
show his worth, The team which play
ed against Jensen, erred seven times,
and lost their game for their pitcher,
Jeroff, who allowed the Guggles but
two hits, and one earned run.
Simon sen, of the Shot, is the rock on
which that team Is founded. Some one
has said, "Take Worth off that team,
and nothing Is left," but that seems to
be far fetched, as there are many
goçd ball players with the team.
But the general outlook of the Situ
ation would indicate that the pitching
forces are about at a par, with very
little choice between them. It would
seem that the 1817 factor^ league race
will not be so much à matter of pitch
ing skill, as a matter of team Work,
and the team.that- supports.its,pitcher
best, and gets at least an even num
ber of breaks will be «ta the top of the
heap at the end. -
The Copper-Lead works ganje on
Saturday would seem Of Indicate the
reverse of that statement, but tt also
seems to be the exception to the gen
eral rale. In that game the Ingots
mads fir· errors, to one for the Shot,
and Appleffte outpitcMd Stmonsen.
And yet the gain· was nip and tuck
throughout, and the Ingots won
through support of Applegate In the
pinches and good batting behind him.
Certainly the league Is going to be
close. There can be no statement
certain as to who will come out on top.
The way the teams have been playing,
it might readily be said that they are
on a par, but the usual breaks have
played a big part, and so the difference
In etandlng.
In Saturday's games, the Ingots will
meet the Ouggles, while the Shot and
Chemists will play. The first game
takes place on the Lead Works field,
while the other is to be played at the
Copper Works lot. Both games are
to start off at I:SO o'eloek.

Since her first appearance In Pal

the public, and greatly Increased her
popularity by her clever performance
as little French girl In "The Wax

who suddenly finds herself an heiress,
she has a role whloh gives her full
scope to display her splendid dra

"The Spirit of Romance" has to do

treat picture. Many authorities say
that It reaches the high-water mark
of plcturedom. As such, we delight
to point to th« artistic recognition It
sop Jalnly deserves. But we believe
greater In one other respect that
faultless production. The producer
has hit upona theme of tremendous
timeliness. This picture may In brief
become a great shaping force In this
remarkable era of the world's civili
We know here, if Qnly faintly, of
war racked Europe and we can sur
mise what must Inevitably follow this
terrible human cataclysm. Patriot
ism and religious fervor—a great
coupled wave of two-fold emotion—
Will sweep all Europe after the war.
Its reflection will be as here—Inevit
ably. Such a force is two elementally
great to be confined by continents.
It Is just this great human emo
tion that "Joan the Woman" splen
didly, powerfully, thrllllngly typifies.
This picture will fire, ennoble and
sway multitude·. It should exert Its
influence In no unlimited way; fl it
does the motion picture will outdo
the mightiest work ever accomplished
by a free press.
Geraldine Farrar, the colebrated
Erlma donna from the greatest opera
ouae in the world, demonstrates be
yond a question of doubt that as a
motion picture star she ranks (ynong
the screens most cherished Idols. Her
delightful interpretation of "The Maid
Of Orleans" In quite the most artlstio
work that has been offered the thea
tre going public, and her appearance
at this popular amusement resort
yesterday marked one of the most im
portant engagements that has ever
been presented in Perth Amboy.
"Joan the Woman" will be pre
sented twice dally for the balance of
the wek. The unusually low prices
will prove inosct attractive to those
who have learned to enjoy the best
works of the cinematograph.
