JACKSONVILLE-LAKE CITY ROAD IS NOW OPEN FOR TRAFFIC i Iacksonville, July 11. According a telegram received by the Tlmes- LONDON'S DRAMA CHARACTERIZED AS "ROTTEN, LOW AND FUTILE" (ByAssociated Press.) London, July 11. "Rotten, low and futile," Miss Lena Ashwell, one of the best-known English actresses, has characterized the drama of today as represented on London's stages. Addressing the inaugural meeting of the British Drama League, she said, nothing could be detrimental to the wholesome life of the natior than such plays. "What astounds me," she contin ued, "is that there is no apprehen sion in this great country of the power of the drama." She recalled that during the war Germany sent Shakespearean com panies to Switzerland, while English dramatic art was represented in Paris by a revue. At the time of greatest stress none of the men from overseas who came to London had tha nnnnrtunitv of seeing any of the plays which represent England's na tional ideal, Miss Ashwell declared. The point of view of the church was expressed by the Rev. H. R. L. Sheppard, who declared it to be "quite monstrous that the Christian church does not possess Its own the ater in London, where it might am plify the message it gives from the pulpit." Telling of his experience with Shakespearean plays produced in the East End, he said: "The West End does not realize how the poorer classes love good stuff. It is the same in France. Mr. Atkins does no. want a bedroom scene any more than I It does not shock him any more than it shocks me. It merely Insults his intelligence."

You may talk about all the exciting hall games that you have witnessed but if you had seen yesterday's gamo you would have seen the best of them all. My, what a game! and all those who traveled to Tampa to see our boys play, came back well rewarded for the Highlanders came out on top. The game yesterday proved to us without a douM that we have a won derful defensive team and all they need is a pitching staff equal to the big boy Ery. Every man on the team played a bang-up gamo and Wicker player sen sational ball, He not only was a terror at bat but hl9 field. saved the day for Lakeland when h-3 speared a long drive that seemed to be good for a three bagger at lean and which brought tears of Joy to he eves of the Lakeland fans. The Smokers also put up an ex cellent game and .would have shared glory In defeat had they not proven to be poor losers and Instead of at tacking the umpire who had rendered an absolute Just decision. It Is conduct like those Smokers engaged In that Invites criticism and is a detriment to baseball. I will try to give you the correct ending of yesterday's struggle: Love got hit by the pitcher and walked, and then stole second. Tnr ter laid down a beautiful bunt ad vancing Love to third. Ery up; Pier re signaled for a sacrifice play and Corcho for the first time caught, on. He put over a wide one which Ery missed and thus Love who had start ed from third got trapped, but by fast footwork managed to force the catcher within short distance of the plate. On the final dash toward the plate Love slid Just as Ferrlor. who was pulled off the line by the throw and thereby unable to reach Love, missing him by a good margin and the runner was safe. Right then Is when those Smokers lost their heads and their conduct was not very becoming to gentlemen. Several Tampa players ran up and tore te mask away from the umpire and struck him In the face.' All the while this was going on our boys be haved like perfect gentlemen and when those Smokers crowded the Umpire too much Manager Piem grabbed a bat and tried to rush to tis assistance and endeavored to maintain order. As Ery and Pierre stood beside the Umpire trying to shield him, sorrw grabbed Pierre by both hands and another one hitting him in the back, tut finally order was restored.

The telegram also stated that re pairs to the road are being made as rapidly as possible. The road was considerably dam aged by the recent heavy rains and was for a time impassable because of flooded conditions. M HARDEN TO BE MBASSADO TO U. S. PRESIDENT S MIND IS FROM GERMANY We certainly don't care to men tion all this but we wish to make it clear that our boys had nothing to do with such conduct but instead trie-.) in every way to maintain order. They are good baseball sports and perfect gentlemen and they won tho gp.me. The following Is the Tampa Tri bune's account of the game: Some magnificent baseball, a mag nificent day and a rotten crowd, as far as Tampa was concerned, was the Betting, the stage and the result at Plant field yesterday afternoon, when the Highlanders from Lakeland car rled off victory only after fifteen in nings of baseball, the like of which If seldom seen anywhere. The final score was 2 to 1. ' Though the records show an at tendance of 480, and It was a real baseball crowd at that at least a third of the attendance came from out of town, principally Lakeland. It was a merry battle in the stands, 'twixt the opposing rooters, even as it was on the field. When Umpire Walters called Love safe in the fifteenth, with Lakeland's winning run, came the second mar ring feature of the afternoon, a near fis?ht with several Tampans shame fully forgetting themselves In the heat of the battle. Better counsel prevailed and nothing more than a flurry resuUed. An earlier feature that the league probably will take steps to stop Is the practice of some "would-be" men In directing certain lines of talk to other players in an endeavor to rattle them. Some of the Lakeland players handed some awful rough Jabber at Leon, Sorondo and others of the Tampa outfit until one of the Lakeland officials who was vs king in the press box, called them down. After the sixth Inning the two clubs battled eight long frames without a score. Time after time would the battlers threaten, only for some pret ty defensive work to spoil the chance and turn them back to the grind. A running one-handed catch by WIckef In center In the tenth cost Tampa ths victory once, Brown having delivered himself of a terrific wallop with two men on bases. Corcho was almost to the plate and Leon had rounded third when the Highlander middle fielder pulled down the ball. Pitchers Fltrht to the Finish With all the spectacular play in the field, and in a beautiful stab by Vil larln in right early In the game, the Smokers contributed a' play as beau tiful as has been seen on Plant field. The game principally was a battle of wits between the two flingers, Corcho (By Associated Press.) j Copenhagen, July 11.

It was In dicated at the White House that Pres ident Wilson is devoting considerable attention to a rider on the agriculr tural appropriation bill repealing the daylight saving law. He has before him many petitions, some urging that he sign the bill and others that he eto it. As fast as could be ascer tained, the President's mind is still open: The President is holding him self in readiness to meet tho Senate foreign relations committee informal ly or In formal session and also to confer with senators who might de sire to discuss the peace treaty. and Ery, both of whom went the en tire distance. The Smoker finger; bad a little the best of the argument all the way, especially in the earlier stages of the game when poor coach ing cost Tampa a run or two, nine safe blngles In six Innings contribut ing but a lone tally. After that, while Ery was holding the Tampans to a lone single for eight innings. Corcho was equally effective with men on bases. He fanned thirteen and Ery whiffed eight. Tampa drew first blood In the sec ond Inning. Alvarez opened with a drive over first and Villarln sacrificed him. Sorondo came through with one of his pinch hits and Cesar scored. It was the sixth before Lakeland shoved Its run across, a beautiful squeeze play turning the trick, Tur ner, first man up, doubled. Ery shoved him around a notch and Wicker dumped a perfect bunt down the first tase line. Turner had started with the pitch and was across before Far rior could get to the ball and get back. In the fifteenth Love wa9 hit a3 the Inning opened. He pilfered sec ond and went to third when Turner grounded to Brow a. Then on an at tempted squeeze, Corcho outguessed Ery and Love was trapped. He dodged up and down the baseline and dashed past Farrior as the catcher made a awing at him. The umpire called him safe and the row started. It was soon over and the game also, though Farrior got as far as third and Tampans had high hopes of a tied score. Rex drew four wide ones, Corcho sacrificed him and he took third, hurdling Leon's bounder to short. Jackson, with three hits to his credit already, Just wasn't due and Turner threw him out.

St. Pe tersburg and Its environs did an un usual thing by falling to vote a bond issue for public Improvements, the $44,000 issue for completing thePass-a-Grille, road project being defeated by 71 votes and the proposed issue of $56,000 to buy and Improve the Mc Adoo bridge by a majority of 94 votes . A total of 457 votes were cast of which four were mutilated. The road project vote stood 259 against and. 188 for. The bridge purchase vote stood 271 against and 177 tor. The counting of the votes was an Interesting procedure with the road project starting off well In the lead and the bridge dropping behind from the start. But after the first 60 ballots were counted there came In a string of about 100 "Nos" on both propositions. After that It was more or less an even break but the affirm ative on either project could not ov ercome the lead the negative had ob tained. There were all kinds of voting on the two Issues. Ballots were counted which said "yes" to both propos itions; others came along one after another, saying "no" to both. Many ballots were for the road project but against the bridge. Other ballots said "no" to the road but voted for buying the bridge. Underlying causes for defeat of the proposed bond issues were discussed freely last night by the large crowd of citizens who gathered to get the returns. The chief of these was giv en as opplsitlon to assisting what many voters appeared to believe ' would be a "good thing" for Mr. Mc Adoo in the purchase by the special road and bridge district of his bridge and the building of a road througb (Continued on Page 8.)
