“IMebe” Baskelers Win
Central High School, of Washington,
was outplayed at basketball by the
Plebes, the score being 39 to 28, but
the frequent chances given Lemon
through the fouls of the Navy players
and the good use he made of the
chances, kept the score at a respect
able figure. The midshipmen were
faster and stronger, and far excelled
the visitors in general work on the
floor, scoring 19 times from the floor
to Central's eight,
Tire first half ended 16 to 10 in favor
of the midshipmen, but Central,
through Lemon’s shooting from the

the Navy a substantial lead just after,
and it was neves* headed. Wood and

Approximately 940 warships, in
cluding 16 dreadnoughts. 13 pre
dreadnoughts, 8 armored cruisers
and 17 light cruisers will be the
peace-time strength of the American
I navy after next July 1. the House Na-
Ival Committee has been advised bv
I Rear Admiral Taylor, chief of the Bu
reau of Construction and Repair. This
will be three times the number in
commission when the United States
'declared war on Germany, but the
comparative tonnage will only be
j about one and one-lialf times as
A number of improvements based
on the lessous learned in the war
are to be made on the dreadnoughts
and other, craft. The first line ships,
Admiral Taylor said, are to be equip
ped with airplane platforms, built
over the forward turrets and extend
ing over the bows of the vessels, so
that aircraft may rise from all of
hem when at sea. Small land air
planes will be used and in_)ptum.ng
aftev flights they will land on the
water, being kept afloat by collapsi
ble airbags until they can be trans
ferred to the platforms.
Other changes to be made in the!
dreadnoughts will include improved
tire and searchlight controls, details
of which were withheld for military;
These alterations, together with the j
repairs necessary to the 940 vessels, i
will cost about $27,900,dJ90, Admiral
Taylor said.

Forma! Statement
The strikers’ spokesmen claimed
the affiliation of the company’s em
ployes with the two unions comprises
118 of aoout 120 motofmen and con
ductors employed by the road.
“We do not predict that we will tie
up the company’s service completely.”
Mr. Gritting said, ’’but we hope to do
so. I understand that an attempt will
be made to maintain a partial schedule
with what few non-union emploves re
main and with others who will be
pressed into service.”
The formal statement issued by Mr.
Gritting was as follows:
“yhe motormen and conductors ot
the Washington, Baltimore and Anna
polis Railway were compelled to work
during the entire war at a rate much
below* that paid on other interurban
lines, due to the fact that they were
, tied up with a three-year contract,
which they protected regardless of its
“This contract expired January 16,
and the men have asked for a rate of
65 cents an hour with overtime after
10 hours at the ‘time and a half rats.
, The company has offered 55 cents an
hour, which is only a 5 cent increase
over the present rate, and it was un
willing to grant the extra eompensa
. tion for overtime. The men offered to
arbitrate, but the company refused.
The men than offered to submit to
! meditation, as provided by the United
States Government, but th 3 company
| also rejected his proposal.
“Representatives of the men then
took the matter up with the Commis
; sioner of the United States Boar-J of
! Conciliation and Meditation, who used
his efforts to induce the company to
submit to meditation. The company,
how’ever, refused the proffer. This left
no other course for the men dxeept to
withdraw from the service.
“The men are members of the
! Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers
I and order of Railway Conductors. The
representatives of the organizations
believe that the men are modest in
their demands when compared with
; rates paid other classes of skilled
] labor.”
j Grilling produced a telegram from the
; Commissioner’s office, which he said
I was received after the company had
; refused meditation, announcing the in
ability of the Commissioner to carry
negotiations further without the co-op
i eration of the company.
