Toner, the National League president talks about baseball, it is a safe bet that every word he speaks will be read. Through out the I'ntted States the impression prevails that because Governor Tener is in active baseball again, there will be a new era in the history of the na tional game. In the magazine of the New York World on Sunday, Governor Tener is prominent in a lengthy Interview. Here are a few epigrams bunched from Governor Tener's statement: "The American spirit Is typified by the National wallop." "Phrases taken from the language of baseball enrich the vocabulary of success. 'Making a hit' and "put ting one over' are generally accepted and widely popular forms of expres sing accomplishments." "Baseball, like the Constitution, fol lows the flag. The impact of the wil low against the horsehlde sphere is heard around the world. There are scoreboards in London, Paris, Berlin, Guam, Hongkong and Toklo, and root ers in every known tongue." "Gallant Commodore Perry opened the ports of Japan to American com merce, and globe trotting nines open led the parks of Japan to the great American game. Thuj are the peace ful messages of New World civilization carried to ancient peoples." "Modwn civics finds one of its abl est allies in baseball. Executive, judi cial and legislative branches of gov ernment year after year are recruited from the diamond. President Wilson was a ballplayer: so was President Taft. The distinguished Chief Jus tice of the Supreme Court of the United States never varies in his loyal support of the game, and so it is all along the line." "If we were to have another escut cheon to express the popular side of national life, and the design were to be decided by popular vote, it would be two bats crossed, with a fielder's mitt set in the upper opening of the sawbuck and a catcher's mask under neath." "Taking the game as It is played— professional, semi-professional, col lege, schoolboy scrub and one-old-cat —there are in all probability a million Americans who find pleasure In par ticipation in it. And there are other millions in the grand stands and bleachers and on the side lines." "Whenever men seek relaxation, bankers, brokers, employes of busi ness houses, mills, shops and factories, they turn naturally to the national game. Baseball is the big event at every outing, and it is more import ant than the fireworks on the Fourth of July. Fat men play the lean men, the tall play the shorties, the married men play the single men, the book keepers play the sales department, and so on. Tt's the great inspirational contest in every State in the Union, every county in the State and every town in the county." "If all the ballplayers in the coun try were organized into an army, they I would form a force that would be in vincible. They would be a defense against the armies of the world." "No event in the country's regular calendar is of such vital import to the masses of the people as a world series contest. No hamlet is too remote not to receive a flash of the result, no community too engrossed in its Imme diate personal affairs not to Join with the crowd anxious to find out who won. The message that Is flashed to the White House is duplicated to the backwoods of Maine, to the Everglades of Florida, to the ranches in Texas and to the fruit belt of Oregon. Even the Indians in far off Saskatchewan come down one-hundred and fifty miles to Portland to get the news and take it back to their people." "We may look for international baseball. It is bound to come. Al ready the same is played around the world. The Waseda College team of Toklo defeated the University of Pennsylvania team last season. The Chinese team from the University of Honolulu beat a strong semi-profes sional team. The big games will come along. International yachting, gold, polo, tennis and shooting are now on the world's card. As a development of the Olympic spirit we will have the I world's baseball, and the contest for supremacy will be the most momen tous event of the time."

H. Hile, the president of the African Ostrich Farm and Feather Company, at the local of fices, in the Calder Building, interviews and statements explaining the turmoil which lias risen about the affairs of the concern were quickly prepared for the press. Mr. Hile busied himself this morning trying to undo what he called the impression that there was anything in the stories about friction in the com pany. "The affair in Wilkes-Barre is noth ing. absolutely nothing," he said re peatedly. "We shall carry on our plans here, and even though we are not get ting a fair show, we shall do this city good. To illustrate what our recep tion would be if we went to other places, I'll show you these." and he brought out the much-thumbed packet of letters frequently shown to prove the desire of other cities to have the farms located there. "But we want to establish our farm and our central headquarters in your city here, because it is the capital of the State, and we believe that we can do the city good." He had prepared an interview, which he told newspaper men was very im portant. and tilled with good stuff. The interview just as he handed it out is as follows: The Interview | "An Interview with W. 11. Hile, presi dent of the African Ostrich Farm and Feather Co., who has been absent from I the city. He stated, concerning the plans and purposes of the company. I that the Intention of the company was to go forward with the development of lan ostrich farm for Harrlsburg. The company has from its very inception lo the present time made good every I promise, as any business man or bank In the city of Bloomsburg will testify. I The monies acquired to build up the Industrie have come from one source <)nly, namely, through the medium of I the sale of the stock of the company. I This money lias been invested in real estate, consitsing of three (.3) of the I best farms in Columbia county, and spent in the importation of the os triches, the establishing of the live stock breeding end of the business on the purchase of office building In the city of Bloomsburg and establishing of the feather business. Those Inliai'iiionious Reports "The reports emanating from Wilkes-Barre, which seemed to be of an inharmonious nature were from the effects of outside influences. "The board of directors expect to meet on Saturday, at which time it will be decided where the annual meeting of the stockholders shall be held, and it is certain the vote will be cast for Harrlsburg." Teachers Hear First of Series of Lecture The University of Pennsylvania last night inaugurated Its new system of free extension courses for the higher professional training of the teachers of Pennsylvania in the opening of a lecture course, given by Professor A. Duncan Yocum, in Technical high school, on "Efficiency in the Material and Method of Teaching." About a hundred teachers from Harrlsburg, Steelton and neighboring counties have pledged themselves to take the course. Superintendent Garver, of Dauphin county, was among the first to enroll, while Superintendents Downes and McGlnnis have done everything In their power to make the new move a success. Similar lecture courses will soon be opened at Williamsport. and at Altoona, Dr. Yocum holds the chair of educational research and practice at the university. I'I.AXTO, PROTECT Washington, D. d..

Says That Appoint ments on Charitable Com missions Are Good The Philadelphia Public Ledger of yesterday contained the following re garding the appointments to commis sions made Friday by Governor Tener: "Governor Tener's appointments to the four charities commissions were generally approved yesterday by the Public Charities Association, which was the sponsor for the bills and in whose otflce they were drafted. It was said by officials of the association that the creation c.f these boards meant a new era for Pennsylvania In the care of the dependent imbeciles. "Stanley H. Howe, educational sec retary of the association, said in dis cussing the appointments: " 'We are much gratified by the ac tion of the Governor in appointing these committees, and particularly with Ills selections for the colony for feeble-minded women of child-bearing age. This is one of tiie most import ant steps forward that the State has ever taken. It commits the State to a new policy in which prevention, rather than care of feeble-minded persons, will be the keynote. This colony should be established on State land as near to Harrisburg as possible, in or der that members of the. Legislature | can visit it and see what :s being done. It is our hope that immediate steps will be taken to establish the colony and erect the buildings so that by the I time the next Legislature assembles the colony will be ready. We have I now from 90 to 100 women ready to enter it.' "The Legislature appropriated $40.- 1000 for the erection of buildings for tho housing of such women, but did not provide any funds for mainten ance. This will come later, but Mr Howe believes that eventually the col ony can be made self-supporting, as in some other States. Mr. Howe said: " 'There are three grades of women who will lie cared for. The first is the low grade Idiot, who is absolutel.s helpless and must even bo fed. Sec ond comes the Imbecile, who can help herself to some extent, but is not en tirely self-supporting. Third comes the moron, who under proper training can tie taught to do work that will support her and earn enough sur plus to support the others.' " 'Moron,' it is explained, is a term applied to women of low mentality, who lack all moral principle. Mr. Howe continued: • " 'lt is the plan of these measures to prevent the creation of Imbeciles. It Is Just as possible to eliminate the feeble-minded as it is to eliminate smallpox. Of course, those who are with us must bo cared for, but meas ures should be taken to prevent fu ture generations from supplying oth ers, and the creation of these various boards is the first big step that Penn sylvania has taken with that end in view." "It is believed that this first step of the State will be followed by others and the policy pushed until, when an other generation grows up, there will be but few women or men who are mentally incapable, and, therefore, a burden upon the community."
