No Change in Red Sox
Says Owner J. J. Lannin
Boston, Sept. 24.—The Red Sox,
probable pennant winners in the
American League this year, will go
into next season virtually unchang
ed. President J. J. Lannin said to
day that he did not bid for a single
player in the draft recently held at
Cincinnati.
"The team," he added, "is a per
fect playing proposition as now con
stituted."
Boston, however, has five players
not considered regular members of
the team who will be candidates for
places next year. These are Pennock,
formerly of the Athletics, and Coop
er, once of the New Yorks, both pitch
ers; Haley, a catcher; McNally, an
infielder, and Shorten, an outfielder.
They were sent to the Providence In
ternationals during the season and re
called.-
CHIEF BENDER SUES FEDERALS
Special to The Telegraph
Pittsburgh, Pa., Sept. 2 4.—Charles
A. (Chief) Bender, a former player
with the Philadelphia American
League baseball club, who this year
played with *he Baltimore club, of the
Federal Lea/ ue, yesterday filed suit In
court here against the Federal League
of Professional Baseball Clubs, ask
ing Judgment for SIOBS, which he
claims is due him on a contract for
his services. In his petition Bender
alleges that he signed a contract for
two years at $7,500, but. recently he
was unconditionally released.
MINIATURF. RUNABOUT BUILT
FOR USE IN CITY STREETS
What is without doubt the most cur
rlous motor-driven vehicle that has
yet made Its appearance was recently
demonstrated In the business streets
of Baltimore, and is described, with
illlustration, in the October Popular
Mechanics Magazine. It is a diminu
tive adaptation of the motorcycle and
not a great deal larger In size than
many of the manually propelled con
veyances driven on city sidewalks by
small boys. The device is designed
not as a plaything, but as a quick,
ready means of transportation. A
compact 2-horsepower motor, which
drives the machine at a maximum
speed of 25 miles an hour, is mounted
at one side of the rear wheel. The
fuel and oil tanks are embodied in the
frame, and it Is stated that one gallon
of gasoline will carry the cycle ap
proximately 75 miles. To prevent
mud and water from splashing onto
the rider, the wheels are nearly In
cased In specially shaped mudguards.
The machine is 4 ft. In length. 18 in.
high, 9 in. wide, and weighs 45 lbs.
It is equipped with a "kick starter"
and is controlled In a novel way. By
moving the handlebars forward the
I speed is increased, while by drawing
them all of the way back the clutch
is disengaged, the engine throttled,
and the brakes applied.
BIG FARM-TRACTOR CON
TEST HELD IN WHEAT BELT
Nearly 100 farm tractors of differ
ent bodies and sizes were entered In
a power plowing and cultivating con
test which was held in Kansas soon
after the wheat harvest. The meet
took place on a 1,000-acre tract of
land adjacent to Hutchinson, where
separate plots were measured off for
the demonstration of each machine.
These spaces were allotted in accord
ance with the size and potential ca
pacity of the various tractors. The
exhibition, which was on a much
broader scale than any previously
held in the wheat belt, was attended
by thousands of grain men and agri
culturists of the Southwest. The Oc
tober Popular Mechanics Magazine
contains views of a number of the
tractors which participated in the con
test.
CHIEF BENDER IS 1
BIG ATTRACTION
Lew Ritter and Other Stars 1
Here to Help Along Big
Celebration
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Albert Bender
arrived In Harrlsburg at noon to-day
for the celebration. They came from
Philadelphia and are stopping at the
Lochlel hotel. The "Charles Albert"
part of this family is also here for an
other purpose. He will be one of the
big baseball stars at Island Park to
day and to-morrow.
"Big Chief" Bender has with htm
on aggregation of stars who will give
the local players a hard chase. The
game to-day started at 3.15. To-mor
row's battle opens at 3 o'clock.
In addition to being able to give
Harrisburg a big attraction both Mr.
and Mrs. Bender expressed much grat
ification on being able to come to this
city during the big time.
Lew Ritter, another Harrisburger is
also here, and with Mike O'Neill and
others who have been playing base
ball ever since the game started in
Harrisburg 12 years ago, are ready to
show local fans that they were still In
the game.
All Local Favorites
Much interest Is manifested in these
games because every man on the Ben
der team was at one time a local
favorite, and still have many admirers
in Harrisburg. The local line-up will
include the same stars, who yesterday
handed a defeat to the Lincoln Giants,
score 7 to 1.
Tho Giants were unable to do much
with Lee. The fielding of the Harris
burg team was full of sensational
plays, and the big crowd were given
plenty of excitement. The score of
yesterday's game by innings:
R. H. E.
Lincoln Stars 00001000 o—l 8 3

When "Monty" is a full grown man,

quirer! wealth staggers young "Monty"

TRACTOR PLANS FOR SCHOOL
Pleasing lines are incorporated In a
new tractor biplane which has been
built for an aviation school at North
Island, San Diego, Cal. It mounts a
60-horsepower motor which is capable
of giving the craft a speed of 65 miles
an hour when it is carrying three per-
I sons, and sufficient fuel to last two
| hours. It may be throttled down to
)30 miles an hour with safety. With
I a full load it is able to climb at a rate
jof 400 ft. a minute. The machine is
i quite similar to one type of craft which
has recently been delivered at the
army aeronautic station in California.
A picture of the machine appears in

FOOTBALL GAME
HERE TOMORROW
Tech Stars Meet Pottsville
Stevens Trade at Steelton;
Central Meets Lancaster
With local scholastic football games
opening to-morrow and the big col
leges lining up for the first battles,
sport interest will switch to the grid
iron contests. Harrisburg's first bat
tle will be between Tech High and
Pottsville High.
This game will be played on Munic
ipal field at Island Park because of
the baseball game on the regular field.
Play will start at 2.30 In order to al
low Pottsville to catch an early train
home.
At Steelton, the attraction will be
the Stevens Trade school of Lancas
ter. Central plays the first game
away from home and will Journey to
Lancaster for a contest with the high
school eleven of that city.
Indications are that to-morrow's
games will furnish very little football.
Coaches have been up against many
snags in getting the squads down to
work. Tech has a crippled bunch and
may have a number of substitutes in
the Une-up. Central expects to make
a good showing against Lancaster;
while Steelton will send in a bunch of
new recruits against the Trades School
eleven.
In the big arena interest centers In
five games. Colby plays Harvard at
Cambridge: Georgetown at Prince
ton; Maine at New Haven; West Vir
ginia and Pennsylvania, and Gettys
burg at Cornell. There will be nu
merous other college games through
out the country.
EXONERATE PENN STATE STAR
Special to The Telegraph
State College, Pa., Sept. 24.—Donald
L. Dolbin, captain of Penn State's
track team and the best sprinter now
wearing the Blue and White, yesterday
received an official communication
from tho A. A. U. authorities absolv
ing him from the charges of profes
sionalism preferred last July. It was
alleged that Dolbin ran in a short
distance event against, professionals at
Mahano.v City on July 4, but the ex
oneration came when Dolbin satisfied
the A. A. U. that he had accepted no
cash prizes and that the contest had
been represented to him as strictly an
amateur event.
