Mass., July 19.—The sale of the Boston Red Sox seems likely in the near future. "Inner circles" have it that Harry Frazee, the pres ent owner, has let it out that the club can be bought. It Is no secret here that at least three offers have been made for the Boston club. One of these comes from New York Interests and two are local, the latter inquiries being made through a downtown bank. The sum offered by the New York ers exceeds a million dollars, includ ing the club's property, but at least I one of the Boston offers is as big. If change is made in the owner ship of the organization it is prac tically certain that Vice-President John E. Stanton, of Brooklyn, now vice-president, will remain with it as a stockholder. He is a red-hot baseball fan and any new owners would be likely to want to keep him, as he is a leading citizen, influen tial and a genuine "booster." In deed, it is declared that he is con cerned in one of the local offers to take over the club. Persons who ought to know are admitting that President Frazee is unhappy at the showing the Red Sox are making this season. He confidently believed at the opening of the season that he would cap ture the American League pennant without the slightest difficulty and the realization that the chance has become remote, if not entirely ex tinct. has come to him as a shock, according to close friend 3. Frazee has had nothing to say to date, but the air is full of smoke and a break Is looked for very shortly. Local Tennis Stars Ready For Lancaster Match Harrisburg Tennis stars were ready for Lancaster Country Club to-day. The game was scheduled for 3 o'clock.

The game will be played later in the season. This afternoon the Swatara com- ' bination will play the Royal Fire I Company nine an independent game I at 2.20 o'clock. As the latter team ! is not included in the league, this I game will not figure in the league standing. Stallings Is in Bad; Braves Falling Down Geoi'gt.fetaMvnga President Grant, of the Boston Nationals, is patiently waiting for the promised climb of the Braves in the National League race. George Stallings, who holds a con tract said to call for $12,500 a year as manager, told President Grant early inthe present campaign, that if Outfielder Walton Cruise could be obtained from the Card inals the Boston team would rush to the front. The team is still In the second division and apparently has no chance to get out of the mire. Will the Braves have another man ager when Stallings' contract ex pires next October, or will Grant decide to make a change before the end of the season? Grant is a smart baseball man. He doesn't jump at conclusions, but it is safe to say that he is beginning to won der whether Stallings is worth a salary of $12,600 a year.

Winston Is Part of Harrisburg War Camp Community Service Those Interested in local athletics will be pleased to learn of the arriv al in this city of James F. Winston, of Boston. He is .associated with the War Camp Community Service. Mr. .Winston has just been dis charged from the army as a First Lieutenant in the aviation service, and also has the distinction of hav ing three other brothers com missioned officers in the recent World War. Before entering the service, while stationed at St. John's New Bruns wick, Canada, as physical director, he coached the Y. M. C. A. basket ball team which won the champion ship of the Martime Provinces. While stationed there, he also ac quired the art of bayonet fighting as adopted by the British Overseas Forces, and taught same to the Bos ton Marine and noncommissioned officers at Fort Strong, Boston har bor. He has the reputation of having j coached the East Boston A. A. Bas- , ketball team which won the world's championship in 1911 by defeating Gloversville, N. Y. In 1913, he was offered the oppor tunity in preference to a score of others to tour the United States with the Nome, Alaska Brotherhood basketball team. Besides being identified with various branches of sport, he was the first to obtain rec ognition for Annette Kellerman in this country, she having been a div ing girl at Wonderland Park, Revere Beach, Mass. After attempting the famous Bos ton light swim and failing after a splendid effort, columns of newspa per space resulted and consequently her first offer by B. F. Keith Syndi cate for public engagements. To many this will be interesting as Miss Kellerman to-day enjoys a world-wide reputation. Mr. Winston is a graduate of the famous Plattsburg Officers' Train ing Camp, having obtained military and academic honors while there. While associated with the War Camp 1 Community Service in this city, Mr. Winston will be pleased to assist in any manner where his services can be of value.

Tilden, of Philadelphia, present holder of the title, and William M. Johnston, of San Francisco, a for mer national grass courts champion, came through to the final round of the national clay court tournament yesterday by defeating Robert Kin sey, of San Francisco, and Walter Hayes, of Chicago, respectively. Kinsey, who is the intercollegiate champion of the Pacific coast, gave Tilden a heated argument. The youngster passed the Eastern star repeatedly when the latter tried to come to the net, and but for the fact that Tilden was able to vary his game at will, and thereby out guess his opponent, the critics agreed that the Coast star would i have won. But when Tilden began to chop | and lob, only coming to the net at j very favorable moments, he gained ! a slight edge which he was able to hold to the end. The score was 6-4, 7-5 and 10-8 and the champion had to fight desperately for every point. Billy Johnston had an even hard er time disposing of Walter Hayes, for after winning the first two sets in comparatively easy fashion, 6-4, 6-2, the little Californian seemed to tire and lost the next two, 9-7 and 7-5. He had enough resferve strength, however, to come back in the deciding set, and win out by 6 games to 4. The mixed doubles section got un der way, while the women's doubles were hurried through the early rounds. It Is planned to play the final singles and final men's doubles matches to-day.

Atlantic City Shocks His Aesthetic Sense Atlantic City, July 19.—Colonel Dinshah Ghadiali, a native of India, but an American citizen and one of the founders of New York's aerial police squadron, cried out before the convention of the National Associa tion of Drugless Physicians here against Atlantic City's beach law, compelling women in bathing rai ment to wear stockings. "Why should beautiful women, and all the women I see here are beauti ful—be compelled by an unmoral, un-American and inhumane law to cover ,their beautiful limbs?" he asked. The women practitioners compris ing more than one-half of the dele gates led the applause Colonel Ghadiali's vehement protest ovoked. He continued warmly: "What's the difference, I ask you between a woman's foot and man's foot? Do not the authorities of Atlantic City yet know they cannot make a people moral by law; that only education can do that' Why I ask further, why not matte men wear stockings upon legs that are not beautiful and put all horses in trousers? If Atlantic Ctty would be truly moral, it should tell women to discard their clothes or don trou sers. I hold she has that right, no less than man."
