Rosewood vs. Reading.
In on® of the fastest and clever
est games ever played in the Allison
Hill League, the Galahad nine nosed
out Hick-A-Thrift by a 1 to 0 score.
The seven innings were played In a
few minutes over one hour and were
witnessed by a large crowd.
•'Kid" Shay was on the mound for
the winners and won his fourth game
out of five starts. He was opposed
by "Kid" Strieker, of Tri-state and
fame. Both twirlers
pitched airtight ball, three hits be
ing collected by each side. Shay had
the better of the argument in the
natter of strikeouts, fanning twelve
"Hickie" batters in the seven in
nings. Strieker whiffed four.
The Galahads won the contest in
the very first inning. Cobaugh reach
ed first on McCord's error. He was
advanced to seaond by Kline and
came home on "Bill" Reiff's clean
single. There was no more scoring
on either side.
Minnich and Schaeffer both played
pood games behind the bat, only one
base being stolen. The Hick-A-
Thrifts were unable to break into
the winning column despite the fact
that their forces were augmented by
"Ike" McCord. Minnich, Strieker and]
■Weaver. This quartet has made a
record in the Dauphin-Perry and
Tri-State Leahies, and should help
to place the "Hickies' in the win
c olumn before the close of the week.
To-night Reading and Rosewood will
meet. Each team has won a game,
and the third ended in a five to five
tie. To-night will break the tie
up between th two aggregations. The

ALL HARRISBURG SHOULD SEE
Harrisburg should heartily patron- j
ize the splendid grammar school
track meet which takes place on
Thursday afternoon at the Island
under the supervision of the Track
Athletic Committee which Is doing
its best now to make amends for the
failure to have a High School meet
this year. In some measure this
one, taking In hundreds of little fel
lows, is far more important and In
teresting than the other. It is rugged,
wholesome exercise that the youth
of America need to make this a
robust nation, say all the Army men
who are figuring largely in present
activities. Harrisburg Is more than
doing her share of supplying sinew
to the nation, for no city of its size
has a finer company of athletes. Pa
rents, relatives, friends and even
they who have no acquaintances
among the youthful, daring contest
ants, have a responsibility to at
tend this carnival of physical en
durance and applaud the youngsters
as they strike to win.
The show will be well worth see
ing, for a fine program of events is
arranged. Perhaps the capital con
test will be the one-mile relay,
which tests speed and endurance. In
this Maclay school was lucky to draw
first position, the other entries be
Boas, Camp Curtin, Melrose.
Wickersham, Forney, Foose, Cam
Half-m'le relay In order drawn
Cameron, Shimmell, Boas, Foose,
Woodward, Camp Curtin, Melrose,
Maclay, Wickersham and Forney.
The entries and drawings for the
meet are as follows:
The schools designated as (C),
Cameron; (M), Melrose; (F), Foose;
(B), Boas; (CC), Camp Curtin; (S),
Shimmel; (WD), Woodward; (FO)
Forney; (MA), Maclay, and (W)!
The winner of the meet will re
ceive the Grammar School Cham
pionship Shield, which will be in
their possession for one year, and a
large silver trophy cup which will
be a permanent possession. A large
silver cup will also be presented to
the individual scoring the greatest
number of points.

Pitched For Patriot-News and
Beat the Sluggers of the
"Vengeance is ours," whooped the
Patriot-News ball tossers evening
as they camouflaged the Telegraph
squad. 6-5, over at the Island
grounds. They had to thank Right
Fielder Sands, of their own forces,
for this triumph, and not forgetting
a kind word to the Telegraph short
stop. Frank Manley, who collected
some snow on his feet In the final
session and let pass a fairly easy
grounder which went as a hit for
Sands. Only for this breach of good
baseball the game might be going
The Patriot-News showed Im
provement since the last bickering
when they were easy prey for the
Telegraph legion. In-again, out
again Holohan pitched for the win
ners and fooled many, but not all
the wily Telegraph sluggers. For
example, in the first, two men scored
when Riehwine led off with a single,
followed by Losh with another and
Holsberg's triple. In the fifth P. Fry
started things with a birigle and
once more Riehwine was there, and
Losh doubled. Richards, of the Tele
graph, had the best Individual wal
loping mark, with a triple, double
and single. Berghaus and Sands
were stars in the outfield, but Holo
han, in again, swiped all laurels when
he singled, stole second, made third
on Wohlfarth's sour shoot and then
brought in the winning run on Sands'
misfit hit. The score:

New Confidence Game
Developed by the War
Detroit, Mich. Beware of the
"wife of a drafted man" with fur
niture to sell—cheap.
The warning that a new variation
of the old game of Am moving south
and must sell my furniture at a sac
rifice" is being tried was sounded by
A. C. Baird, assistant United States
A tearfully dejected but beautiful
young woman is usually the star
performer in the swindle. An adver
tisement appears advising the pub
lic that a cruel war has torn a loved
husband from a charmingly fur
nished household and thereby ren
dered it desolate.
Inquiry at the address reveals the
"wife" implanted among "costly"
wedding gifts in a cozy flat denuded
of the breadwinner. She will sell at
a sacrifice so she can join her hubby
at a nearby army post or go home to
The tears and the sad tale win.
The purchaser empties his pocket
book. Then an unsympathetic friend
tells him that his newly acquired
household scenery Is worth about
half what he paid for It. If he in
vestigates further he will invariably
find that it came from a nearby fur
niture dealer who pays the 'wife" a
Love Letter Costs
Him $19,000 Alimony
Chicago.—"Dearest Darling Dona,"
wrote Samuel Ball, according to a
letter Introduced by his wife, Mary,
In her divorce suit before Judge
Brothers. "Just a look Into those
eyes would be worth so much to me;
a kiss from those precious lips would
be worth more; a thrill from that
loving soul would be Indeed a boon
to this marrying soul." Mrs. Ball
will receive $19,000 alimony.
Nevada Trapper Earns
$4,300 in 3 Months
I Lovelock, Nev.—W. W. Scott, a
| trapper, has earned approximately
$4,300 in the last three months by
capturing animals and selling the
Scott states that he trapped 521
rovotes. 127 badgers, and 87 wild
fats. Skins of coyotes are worth
about $7 each, and wildcat pelts
average $5. Scott la said to be the
most successful trapper in Nevada.
Freak Day in Major Shows Is
Blamed on the Hun
It was a freak day in the big
leagues, due, says "Germany" Schaef
fer, McGraw's private clown, to the
German mocassins of the sea. Over in
Brooklyn, where they could almost
hear the Hun skipper ordering his
men to kill all women and children,
they had a debauch of runs. Brooklyn
scoring 12 and the Cardinals 15. It
was one stig-tossled, hornswoggled
pasttime, winding up in a protest. In
the sixth inning, with Baird on sec
ond. Cruise hit a liner to center,
which Hickman stopped but could not
hold. Baird reached third and, think
ing the ball was caught, started back
After going back twenty feet he cut
across the diamond to the plate and
scored. Umpire Rigler ruled that after
a runner had once touched third base
he was not compelled to retouch it on
his way home.
Olson protested the decision and
was put out of the game. Manager
Robinson then ordered his men to
play under protest.
O Mara was hit by a hot grounder
from Meadow's bat in the second inn
ing and his nose was split.
Out in St. Louis, meanwhile, Vean
Gregg was pitching the Athletics to
victory, holding St. Louis to one hit.
Only four men got to base for the
home team, two on passes, one by be
ing hit and the fourth on a clean
single, Nunemaker alone keeping
Gregg from a no-hit record.
The third and most extraordinary
stunt was that of Leonard, who pitch
ed Boston to a 5-0 victory over De
troit, only one Detroiter reaching first
base on a pass and not one getting
the semblance of a hit. Boston hit
Dauss freely, bunching the blows with
bases on ball and errors. Ruth, sent
to center field to replace Strunk, du
plicated his home run of Sunday by
again placing the ball In the right
Six Detroit Girls
Detroit—Over the wires came a
story to the effect that Miss Louise
Freeman, of Cincinnati, Ohio, was
the "first girl In the Middle West to
be granted a first grade wireless li
cense" upon her completion of the
course at Hunter College. New York
City, but at least six Detroit girls,
each of whom possesses a first grade
wireless license dated January 25,
1918, are ready to refute the claim.
As a result the class of men and
women took an examination under
a Federal radio representative in De
troit last January.
Several of the above "flunked out"
on the examination, but these young
women possess first grade licenses,
and not "emergency" licenses, either,
for those denote only a limited speed
and no technical skill: Misses Isabel
Mandell, niece of Judge Henry M.
Mandell; Margaret Blanchard, Lu
cille Safford, Myrtle Lightfoot, Inez
