FRIDAY NIGHT OPENING BATTLE TWIXT TECH AND ALUMNI; LEVINSKI TRIMS HOUCK r Tech in Tense Training to Vanquish Alumni in Basketball Friday Night The Technical High school bas ketball quintet held the first of its practices for the week at Chestnut street auditorium yesterday after noon with a squad of twenty-five getting Instructions front Coach lililier. The team will play Its first game Friday night at the auditor ium with the Alumni five, lead by "Goldie" Huston, last year's cap , tain. It will be a hard test for the Maroon team, as all of the grads have already had a month's train ing in the cage with college squads. Ebner and "Buddie" Linglc paired off at forward, with "Tony" Wils bach at center. The letter's right shoulder is giving him home trou ble due to a football injury received iq the Williamson contest. Smith and Kohlman took care of the de f fensive end of the game. "Johnny" Beck was given a chance at for ward position and looks like a "comer." He Is one of the fastest lads in the cage, and is a dead shot. "Vic" Bihl also had a chance at guard, and will make some of the regulars hustle to keep him out of a regular place.

There Is no reason to suppose this is not proportionately true of all the big English schools which furnished the bulk of the second lieutenants in j the army. Baltimore, Dec. 26.—Charles H. , Knapp, president of the board of di- j 1 rectors of the new International Lea- ; Rue. has sent out a call for th% club i owners to meet at the Hotel Imperial j j In New York, January 6. ' The season will be for the purpose j of electing a president, and It Is un- | derstood that David L.

The Chicago Nationals decided some j time ago to do their conditioning in j southern California, and President C. j A. Comiskey. of the White Sox, an- | Bounced to-day that his teajn would j ' train in Texas, though he did not ( name the city. Last season the White Sox did their pre-season work at Mineral Wells, Texas, but Comiskey sui.l he would visit Texas next week and look over a number of sites be fore selecting a camp for his play ers. Detroit, Mich., Dec. 25. —President! Navin. of the Detroit club, advances a sound reason for the failure of all ; but oil" of the minor leagues last sen son. Prior to the launching of the' defunct Federal League, Mr. Navin . eays that the minors received an averngt of 6250,000 a year from the majors for playing talent. The war with thr Feds resulted in a gradual rctr. r hmcnt, from which the majors hao not recovered when great world conflict began to be felt in tills country. In view of the majors agreement to pay more, than $500,000 for the elimination of the Feds, the minors have found it hard to exist with their source of revenue reduced I to a minimum. Baltimore. Dec. 26. J. Franklin Baker, the "home run king," an nounces that he has made up his mind to remain on his farm near this city next summer. Baker's three-year contract with the Yankees at an annual salary of $9,666,67, expired last fall. Baker Is going to be asked to sign a new one i shortly, however, and probably will be back in the game when the 1919 season opens.

Very likely |he will get a chance against the j Alumni Friday night. This boy has I a good turn in the cage and is good ! enough for any high school team in j the state. There is so much goad ' material on hand, and it is so evenly j matched that Coach Miller's biggest i problem will be to pick the five best players. "Snaps" Emanuel nnd "Red" Hus ! ton played forwurd for the "scrubs." • Both are clever players and tho only • thing that may keep them from the ! first team is their weight. At guard i were "Red" McCord and "Rill" j Fortna. That lineup of the reserves ' will trim most of the other varsity j aggregations in the Central Penn i League. Prior to the contest Friday night I the players will elect a leader for I the season. Ebner Is the only senior i left from last seuson, but because of the fact that he was captain of the football team, it would not ba surprising to see the honor given to "Buddie" Lingle, the teams fast for. ward. Anything "made In Germany" is to ! be barred in South Africa for a per- I iod of five years. Add fifty to it and ! we might adopt the same restriction here. New York, Dec. 26.—Vincent Rich ards. the 15-ycar-old holder of two national championships, won his place in the third round of the national in- ! door lawn tennis championship Junior singles on the courts of the Seventh Regiment Armory to-day. Richards, by the sharply-played volleys from his side of the net, defeated Teddy Le Gros. of the Xew Y'ork Tennis Club, in straight sets at 6-3, 6-2. The match in which the two top ] class juniors met was the only one ; contested in the tournament series. The engagement in which Richards gained his place in the round before the semifinals overshadowed all else as to interest. He led off with the service, shooting the ball with good ! pace and compelling Le Gros to give ground so that he might whip a pass ing shot when he had Le Gros out of position. Le Gros retaliated prettily In the second game by mastering Richards at the net. Le Gros' vol leys were finely played, his blocking of the ball being exceptionally good.

Asked if he thought the President's program would furnish the basis for a lasting peace, Count Von Bern | storff shrugged his shoulders. I "This is the only one which can ibe proposed at present," he added, "and the attempt must be made to ay ply it. At any rate we shall sup port it." When he was asked by the corre spondent what atiitude Germany would adopt toward the east, he re plied: "All the questions concerning the new states which have sprung up on the Russian frontier are the affairs of the Allies. I.ot them disentangle things as best they can. We wash our hands of Russia. We are content , to safeguard as far as possible the In tegrity of our territory, consulting , at the same time the will of the [ | populations." , 1 Asked about the White Book which , 'Carl Kautskv is said to be preparing in Berlin, Cotin.t Von Bernstorff said: j "I don't think the book will reveal 'the individual responsibilities of the .: persons who directed Germany in ! 1914. It will rather show the collec | tive faults of the regime. Standing of the Crews II ARKISm RG SIDE t'liilnilrlplyin Division The 123 ' crew first tfl go after 10 o'clbck: 106, 118, 129, 131.

In the first the House clerk deter mines the tentative membership and in the second the committee creden tials prepares a tentative list of dele gates. At the peace.conference dele gates must be prepared to present adequate credentials from their Leg-, lsluture. King. President or other executive authority, i It Is considered probable that sev ! eral countries on the tentative list ' will be closely restricted at the be ginning when broad questions of pol- Llcv will ba outlined. But additions to the list of delegates mav he made ; later when the conference gets down ito details and general principles. 1 Still later another class ol' nations may be admitted, including tho Cen ■ tral Powers, to lad' the foundations j for the formal signing of peace trenties. . j Theoretically these questions are ; subject to mutual examination and : challenge in case of doubt, but ac | tually, in the forthcoming confer ■ ence, the Unltod States, Great Brit lain, France, Italy and later, perhaps, j Belgium, by reason of sentimental j considerations, probably will reach ' an understanding as to the admission j iof delegates. | The neutral powers probdbly will j bo allowed to participate when the stage is reached where it is desir-1 able there should bo a world-wide adoption of the plans prepared at r „ : "That Ton Will Last Longer Now" e Every ton of coal lasts longer in homes where Per fection Oil Heaters are used.
