12 nil NEEDED TO BOOST THE CITY Ardent Supporters Willing to Help Make the Game Pop ular Here Whatever may be the result of the conference of Tri-State owners at Lancaster late tills afternoon, or the action of the Tri-State representa tives at the meeting, Tuesday, Har risburg supporters waul league baae ball, and it is probable that a mass meeting will be ualled in the near future fer the purpose ef boosting the came and ascertaining how much additional cash can be rained to help lhe local bankers. One ardent baseball supporter, Ifld ward G. Kauch, suggested a plan by which local backers might be en couraged to make n further Invest* itient on the guarantee that in the event of a poor season they would loße nothing. Explaining his plan, Rlr, Itauch said! "There is not much encourage ment for any person to put money in a project with no guarantee that they will get It back, Home men are loth to invest their cash in a baseball en terprise, others do not have the money, but aro willing to contribute to the support of the game. I. for one, will subscribe to a fund to be plaoed in uny bank In Harrisburg and to be used to make up any losses incurred In- the efforts to give Har risburg good baseball. Itiglit Buslines Volley O. Ross Boas, another enthusiastic supporter of the national tfani*. thought the plan sußuested by Mr. Ratio h a good one, and said he also is willing to do his share in keeping baseball in Hurrisburß, He is also of the opinion expressed by Manager Connie Mack during his noonday talk several months ago that if the right businoss poliey was followed sufficient stock might he sold to put a strong corporation hack of baseball. Said Mr. Boasj "Basel*! II is one of the best adver tisements a city can have and I would certainly be disappointed If 'there' were no Tri-State game. Harrisburg | cannot afford to be without league | baseball and 1 hope that the proposed I reorganization of the Trl-State is made a certainty and that Harrisburg as well as other towns will get into ! the game in business style." William Bates, wholesale produce and fruit dealer, a staunch supporter of the game, expressed a hope that more activity should be shown in the efforts to keep baseball moving on | a higher standard. Others who want to see the game continued are Wil liam H. Bennethum. Sr., manager for Dives, Pomeroy &- Stewart; George B. Tripp, vice-president of the Harris burg Light & Power Co.; Jess Wind sor. of Kuss and Windsor; Frank Seiss, John Wohlforth, John Morgan thaler, Fred B. Aldinger, Robert Ma gee. J. Rowe Fletcher. J.

Central Ready For Contest; Sensational Battle Expected loth Teams Anxious For Victory and Pottsville Has an Early Record That Must Be Considered Ginger, with a sprinkling of to basco sauce on the side, promises to be a feature of the opening scholastic basketball game at Chestnut street auditorium to-night when Central high opens its season with Pottsville high. This will be the first oppor tunity for local enthusiasts to size up the Central tossers. The game to-night, considering that Graham Is Popular, Has Strong Ability; Trenton in Favor The eloction of George M. Graham, sporting editor of the Philadelphia North American, to the presidency of the Tri-State is looked upon as the one solution to the success of the Tri-State. The Trenton Gazette says: "That President Charles F. Carpen ter will meet with serious opposition in his efforts to be re-elected presi dent of the Tri-State League is shown by the fact that George M. Graham, one of the most noted sporting writers in the country, may be asked to accept the presidential chair. In many cities on the circuit Graham is being groomed for the job and there is hardly a doubt but that if Graham wants the position lie can have it. "Graham would make an able and intelligent president. He has splendid executive ability and has the interest of the league at heart." I Canterbury / V If!
