Rosewood vs. Hick-a-Thrift.
In the heaviest hitting game of the
.season, Galahad nosed Reading out
of second place In the Allison Hill
League by the score of 16 to 9. Two
home runs, three three baggers and
half a dozen doubles, mixed with six
teen singles, Ynade up the hitting for
the evening by the two teams.
In an effort to stem the batting of
the winners, Manager Pressler used
five different pitchers. The only one
who was at all effective was "Mose"
Swartz. Reading was unable to place
several of its regulars on the field
and as a result, the lineup was con
siderably changed from time to time.
The game was a slugging affair
from start to finish, and the cool
wind blowing over the field was the
only thing that kept the outfielders
l'rom becoming exhausted chasing
after the leather. "Bill" Reiff played
his last contest prior to enlisting and
liis work consisted of one run, two
hits and one out. To cap the climax
he had a stolen base. Kline was the
best batter of the evening with four
hits, one of which was a triple; The

"Bad" Weiser's Perfect Day at Bat Beats Hazleton, 7~0
We have with us to-day Mr. "Bud"
Weiser, the Shamokin slugger, who
will jogglo along down the corridors
of history for some ages by reason of
having a perfect day In the Bethle

rare feat in fast company, so say the
performers. Mr. "Bud" Weiser, who
in no way suggests this once alluring
fluid, is no novice at the game, hav

New York State League. Manager
Cockill had great confidence in him,
likewise the Steelton fans, and yes
terday he proved that he is a six
cylinder, king-row proposition who
will do his little part toward win
ning the rag.
A good sized crowd saw this ex
hibition, which of course, does not
count in the league contest, and they
were fairly hypnotized with the skill
and precision manifested. "If they
only play like that next Saturday
against Lebanon," sighed the rooters
The pitching was first class, even
Dougherty, the visiting twirler hav
ing plenty of stuff, 'but poor support.
"Buck' Ramsey, the reliable guy,
started for Cockill, and went along
for live innings like a Yankee tank
through a Held of spaghetti. Lefty
Pierce finished the game, allowing a
couple trifling smacks.
In the aggressive "Bud" Weiser
I had every one faded, although Hunt-
I er's triple smash in the fourth started
the day's scoring. Weiser had a reg

There May Soon Be
"Gasless" Auto Days
Washington, June 12.—The gaso
linesless day bids fair soon to join
the wheatless and the meatless days.
The shortage of the basoline supply
is becoming so acute that the gov
ernment is growing apprehensive
and a marked reduction in the use
of gasoline by the civilian public is
essential. It is stated that before
many days the oil administrator, Mr.
Requa, will announce thatUhe gov
ernment will take over all the re
fineries. It will not operate them
itself, but will control the entire
output by the license system. Fuel
oil is practically already under gov
ernment control through the recent
order which created a pool of all the
output of the American wells.
It is now expected that the gov
ernment, by licensing the oil refin
eries, will control the output of all
the petroleum products. This, of
course, will include naphtha, ben
zine, illuminating oils and all the
other oil products, In addition to
It is the purpose of the oil admin
istration to begin the saving of gaso
line by the voluntary co-operation of
the public. Every automobile user
will first be requested to leave his
automobile in its garage for one day
each week. This voluntary absten
tion will be permitted to continue for
a period long enough to enable the
oil administrator to decide if enough
gasoline is being saved to remedy
the eistinxg shortage. If it does not
prove satisfactory the gasolineless
day will be made obligatory, and If
one dhy a week is not sufficient two
days will be set apart. The oil ad
ministration Is unwilling to use harsh
measures, and it is quite probable
that at first the gasless day will ap
ply only to pleasure vehicles, but the
lines will be gradually drawn tighter
until only the absolutely indispens
able use. of gasoline will be permitted
to the public.
Much Interest Being Shown
in Big Patriotic Rally
Much interest is being manifested
in the big patriotic rally which will
be held on Saturday evening In the
HOUFO of Representatives under the
auspices of the Pennsylvania Branch

liam Howard' Taft. Dr. Joseph T.

forwarding plans for this meeting, is
endeavoring to add still further fea
tures to the already attractive pro
gram. He anticipates a big attend
ance at this meeting.
The Rfcv. James Henry Darlington,
Bishop of the Harrlsburg diocese of
the Protestant Episcopal Church, who
will preside at Saturday evening's
meeting, will be introduced by Dr.
Rothrock. Included among the
speakers will be Professor Smith
