Brush, along with Kaymond. This
record showed 'Bugs' had swallowed
forty-two beers and seven green oil

Kaymond, and after a long timo he
finally admitted that he might have
sipped the boors, but he was sure
ho had nothing to do with the on
ions. I almost lost my job for this
interview with Mr. Brush. Kaymond
was a persistent guy. One spring
xve were just arriving at Marlin.
•Bugs' wanted $509, and I told him
no advance money was to he had
that spring. He cut the request to
$260. I refused again. He asked for
$lOO. Again I refused. Then he
wanted $5O. $26. $lO und a $2 bill.
Finally when he saw I was obdurate,
he said. 'Gimme two bits for a shave,
will you?' And I don't think he got
even that. I never knew when Kay

Raymond always could bafflo Wag

a three-hagger that tied the score.
Immediately I knew something was
wrong. I found out too late that
Raymond had run out of tho Polo

a dollar, bought as many drinks
ho could, and came back to lose that

Boxing Managers Keen

Harrisburg Is getting on the box-1
ing map. A missive has just been
received by the sporting editor from
something of Johnny Murray, the
sensational bantamweight who, the
other day, put away Franklo Clark
in two rounds. Frank (Doc) Bagley
suggests that as Harrisburg is on
the boxing drive It might be possi-'
ble to have Murray appear 111 the
Capitol City. He narrates:

The program also includes an Al

makes a noise like a goose but
usually trims his foe. This bill
promises action, for Baldy Brandt

For Central High
and Camp Hill
A team which will probably play
permanently under the name of
Central High School, now called
the Infornials, will meet Camp Hill
Big Five to-night, over there. This
is a starter for bringing back uth
leticg to Central, declares Curl
Stoner, who is handling 'he In
formals, and everybody interested
in the city athletics will be glad
to hear it. Tech has been taking
up the whole stage and no one is
envious of lier, but Central High
should be prominent, too.
The athletes who will do battle
to-night in Central High's name
are Mlnnich , Robinson, Cahill,
Craiglow, Perrin and Koch. Five of
these players will start the game.
The contingent will have to exert,
themselves to the utmost in order
to wallop the Camp Hill tosaers,
who include a number of former
college stars.
It is expected that within the
course of a few days a captain will
be elected by the infornials. Joe
Minnich was captain of the senior
team and "Mel" McClintock led the
junior five. Now that the two com
binations havo gone together as

Votes 194 to 142 Favoring New
Thrcc-Ycar Building
Washington, Feb. 12. —Adminis-
tration leaders in the House have
won their fight for a declaration by
Congress of a policy of naval ex
pansion unless limitation of world
armament is agreed upon at tho
peace conference. After a long de
bate yesterday, the House voted
194 to 142 to approve the new
three-year building program of ten
battleships and ten scout cruisers
and immediately afterwards adopt
ed the entire naval appropriation
The vote on the adoption of the
bill was 281 to 60. As finally ap
proved the measure carries a total
of $721,00,000 for the naval estab-
I lishnient during the next fiscal year,
I including $179,000,000 for the un-
I finished part of the first three-year
program adopted in 1916.
During tho day the House adopt
ed by a vote of 205 to 148 a reso
lution of the rules committee mak
ing the naval expansion policy leg
islation in order, thus overcoming
a parliamentary advantage gained
yesterday by Republican Leader
Mann, whose points of order against
the program had been sustained by
Representative Garret, of Tennessee,
Democrat, who was temporarily
Representative Moore, of Penn
sylvania, said the question to be
decided was not whether the House
was for or against a large navy, but
whether it was for or against the
voople, who had to pay the bills,
while Representative Johnson, of
South Dakota, asserted that the time
had come for Congress to adopt
another declaration of independ
ence and Tree itself from the mas
tery of the President.
Sidney Brandson, his wife and
Clarence Williams, 510 Strawberry
street, were arrested last night on
suspicion. Their cases will be
heard in police court tills after
of the border. Although he is forty
years old Wedge stayed the limit,
but has decided that the pulpit and
the square circle, is the place for
him. After the boot he wrote: "Now
that boxing and physical culture
have completely cured me of tuber
culosis I am going back to the active
ministry of the church. I shall always
remain an enthusiastic booster of
boxing and believe boxing will be
come the national sport of America'".

Report Will Be Issued
London, Feb. 12.—Progress on the
formation of the Society of Na

mier Lloyd George said in tho
House of Commons in discussing the
j work of the peace conference. He
; said he hoped that a report would

appointed to consider responsibil

The Premier, in answer to a
question, said that the British rep
resentatives, like tho others, would
sign the treaty of peace provision

pi-esentod to Parliament for ratifi
cation. If the House of Commons
chose to repudiate it, the House
was all powerful.
The peace commission on in

hoped, would issue its report .soon.
The Premier declared that the
conference had made progress be
yond the most sanguine anticipa

an agreement on most questions. It
would be a misfortune, he added, if
the peace conference deliberations
were discussed in any parliaments

THE modern way to load and screen
coal is by machinery,
i Coal is hoisted to the screens by
electric power, after which the coal travels
over a large screen to remove dirt and goes
into our wagons ready for delivery.
The old way for screening coal required
the drivers to shovel coal by hand into a
screen and afterwards throw the rescreened
coal into his wagon. Hard work.
Mechanically screening and loading
coaj requires less labor, therefore our
men are better satisfied. Because of this
we are enabled to secure better drivers.
