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."

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.

Academy Outweighed
Academy played a fine game, but
was outweighed by the Annville team.
Lebanon Valley's players had to be on

was marred considerably by constant
arguments.
Saltsman and Holmes were particu

IDEAL WEATHER FOR
GAME II PRINCETON
Yale Won Toss and Scored on
Forward Pass After Few
Minutes of Play
By Associated Press
Princeton, N. 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. The early kick
ing practice showed that there was
little advantage so far as the wind
was concerned.
The scenic effect of the stadium
filled with brightly-gowned women
and their flag-bearing escorts aroused
the enthusiasm of every football fol
lower.
The Yale squad was first on the
field shortly after 1.30 and was fol
lowed almost immediately by the
Princeton cheering squad, which,
headed by a band, paraded around the
tield.
The Princeton team came on the

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. Nov. 14.—While plans
for the American evacuation of Vera
Cruz on November 23 were being car
ried forward to-day grew in
official circles that further blood
shed between the Mexican fac
tions might be avoided by the truce
the Carranza and Villa factions are
reported to have entered Into until No
vember 20.
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.
Meanwhile it was indicated that Vil
la. holding San Potosi and the railroad
running to Tamplco, was resting his
army on its arms awaiting develop
ments. It seemed to-day that only the
most untowurd developmonts could
stay the departure of Brigadier Gen
eral Funston's forces and that the
Mexican factions would be left to set
tle their own differences.

IN RETREAT FROM POLAND
By Associated Press
London, Nov. 14, 3.45 A. M.—The
Petrograd correspondent of the Daily

on the operations of "the Russian
front:
"The German eastern army will con
duct the home defense from wto bases.
They are organizing their northern
forces at Thorn, using the back belt
railways to maintain communications
with their east Prussian army. The
new southern base is Oppein, on the
Odor, fifty miles southeast of Breslau.
"A quantity of guns are being
brought to Oppein from Cracow and
the latter place evidently is to be
abandoned to the Austrian garrison.
"In the last stages of the retreat
from Poland the Germans covered
twenty-tive miles daily. Their column
which fell back on Kaliz, lost 80,000
men, of whom 20,000 were killed."
