EXPLOSIVE Dura AGAINST SUBMARINE British Believe They Have Two German Vessels Which Have Menaced Their Navy Special to The Telegraph London, Nov. 14. The Standard j publishes a report passed by the Press | Bureau that two German submarines have been lost recently. The Standard says: "Two submarines which have been raiding in the English Channel have been satisfactorily accounted for. One of these submarines has been carry in;? out a series of daring reconnais sances in the vicinity of Dover, and a patrolling cruiser reported attempts by this German craft to send a torpedo against her. "Pntrol flotillas from Dover began a search for this submarine. Naval men had reason to believe that the vessel was saving power by remaining on the bed of the sea for lengthy periods. The keenest sort of watch was kept and due preparations made. During one of the extremely calm days for which the end of October was notable bub bles were seen rising at certain points. "Vessels wont out and dredged over this area in a similar manner to mine sweeping, but using a powerful chain with explosives attached. This ohain was dragged at a depth that would catch the submarine if lying there. "After patroling several times over this area, there was a heavy explo sion. This was followed soon by the rising of large quantities of oil to the surface. Those who took part in the operation have no doubt that a Ger man submarine was blown up. The other was trapped and sunk by shells." PENROSE, VOIX'STEER FIREMAN Senator Aids Italian Family Whose House Burned Near Plilladelplda Special to The Telegraph Philadelphia, Nov. 14.

STEELTON LOSES TO WILKES-BARRE 27-14 Visitors Clean Up Milltown Lads in Rattling Battle on Cottage Hill Steelton High school's crippled foot- | ball team went down to defeat at the hands of Wilkes-Barre, on the Cottage Hill griairon this afternoon, score 27- 14. The Steelton team was greatly outweighed by the up-State eleven but put up a game fight until the last minute of play. Steelton's trick for mations were worked to advantage but Vilkes-Barre's heavy line was a stone wall against which the Steelton line plays went to pieces. N orris Kicks Off Play started promptly at 1.30 o'clock. Norrls kicked for Steelton. The ball soared far down the field and was caught by Miller, of Wilkes-Barre, who immediately returned the kick. One of Wilkes-Barre's fleet ends beat the kick down the field and recovered the ball. Officials, however, called the play illegal and gave Steelton the ball where the kick was received. After fighting back and forth near the center of the field for several min utes Wilkes-Barre secured possession of the ball and started a steady rush down the field. On the 30-yard line Mendelsohn, right halfback, plunged through Steelton's line, broke away from the second line of defense and Scored the first touchdown of the game. Miller kicked the goal. The first quarter ended with the ball in Steelton's possession near the center ! of the field. With the opening of the second quarter Steelton's players came back strong. Play after play was sent crashing against Wilkes-Barre's line. Steadily but surely the up-state team was pushed toward its goal. Finally after a series of smashing line plunges by Gardner and Dayhoff the latter tore through Wilkes-Barre's line for the second score of the game. Norrls easily kicked the goal. The period ended without further score, but with Steelton getting the best of the play. Third Period The third period opened with Nor rls' kick. Wilkes-Barre rushed the hall to the center of the field, where they were held for downs. Steelton was unable to do much against Wilkes- Barre's line, which greatly outweighed the Steelton boys. After several short rushes and trick formations, Gardner kicked. Two rushes were followed by a forward pass from O'Boyles to Mil ler. This play netted Wilkes-Barre twenty yards. Mendelsohn went over for a touchdown. Miller kicked the goal. Fourth Period In the final quarter Wilkes-Barre scored a touchdown on a forward from Miller to Poland, who tore down the field for thirty yards. Miller missed the goal. Wilkes-Barre got the sec ond score In this quarter when Gard ner fumbled and Bart recovered the ball and tore down the field through the entire Steelton eleven for an eigh ty-yard run and the final score. Mil ler kicked the goal. Steelton's score came when Gardner smashed through tackle for forty yards. Dayhoff was unable to gain and Gardner was given the ball and carried It over, making three yards through the line. Norrls kicked the goal. The line-up follows: Wllk.es-Barre Steelton Kemper, 1. e.

J., Nov. 14. ldeal weather conditions marked the real football dedication of the Palmer stadium here to-day when Yale and Princeton met. The sun shone from a cloudless sky and there was but the slightest breeze from the north. The playing lield, which had been covered with several feet of straw until this morning, was fresh and green and the turf unusually fast.

ON LOOKOUT FOR RECKLESS SHOOTERS Somebody Seems to Find Pleasure in Making the Bullets Whiz About Folks' Heads Residents of the lower end of Steel ton have complained to the police authorities about the amount of reck less shooting in this locality at night. It Is a nightly occurrence, say resi dents of this section of town, to hear the crack of a rifle or revolver and hear the whiz of a bullet flying through the air. Most of the shooting, it seems, is done from the hill back of South Third street and in some of the alleys in the neighborhood of Chambers street. While no person has yet been in jured by flying bullets, travel in this section of town after 10 o'clock is not very pleasant, according to some of the residents. In a number of places bul lets have struck houses and in one case narrowly missed striking a man as he was sitting reading a paper by lUs fireside. Detective Irvin Durnbaugh and a number of police officers are on the lookout for the shooters and If anyone is caught using firearms prosecutions will be started." Plans Being Made For Evacuation of Mexican City on November 23 By Associated Press Washington.

Carranza's call to General Gonzales, the leading general upon whom he de pends, to come to Mexico City was re garded as evidence that further Influ ences were at work to prevent a new civil war, which military experts say would be the bloodiest yet of the Mexi can contacts.
