HIGH SCHOOL HEAD j
Declares Over Strenuous Games
and Races Are Almost
St. Louis, Jlo., April 3.—Football,!
oaseball and lons distance races in '
grammar and high schools were char
acterized as almost criminal by Dr. I
Arthur A. Knoch, of the Walnut Hills!
High School, Cincinnati, in an address j
to-day before the American Physical'
"Our public officials ought to know." ;
lio said, "that such strenuous physical
exertion exhausts almost all organs;
nnd that a dilated heart is the natural
result of the unreasonably prolonged
tension incident to such games. Our!
ideals should not culminate in the
training of young athletes, but in the;
education of mentally and physically t
sound and harmoniously developed j
men and women, whose gait, posture;
and bodily movements would arouse
the admiration of all.
"Observe the.clumsy, awkward pos- j
ture of nearly all members of our;
bigh school football teams. Although ;
the football season lasts only ten
weeks and the daily practice is only!
two hours, yet this strenuous physical
work in deep bending trunk position
develops in the young body round
shoulders, a drooping head posture j
and a sunken thorax.
"The general opinion of progressive
pedagogues and physicians is rapidly
developing into a conviction that
undue pressure is applied and
applied prematurely in forcing
the mental development of school
children. It is cruel to de-i

Fred J. Lanshe Quits
as Allentown Leader
Allentown, Pa., April 3.—Sporting:
circles were given a big surprise yes
terday in the announcement of the
resignation of Fred J. Lanshe as presi
dent of the Allentown Tri-State base
ball club. The resignation of Mr.
Lanshe was presented at a special
meeting of the directors. His action
was due entirely to business reasons.
For seven weeks Mr. Lanshe had
given almost his entire attention to the
affairs of the Allentown club, and,
after putting the organization on its
financial feet, came to the conclusion
that he would rather be a fan In the
ranks than an officer at the head of
the organization. Efforts to get him
to reconsider were unavailing, and his
resignation was accepted with regret.
Jlax S. S. Erdman, county solicitor
of Lehigh, who was secretary of the
club last year, was chosen president.

The elongated twirlcr, who, several years ago, was the star of the Chicago

' Phillies Win Game
From the Athletics
Philadelphia, April ".—The Phillies
i with tho «:• U1 ta o future-great pltch-
I era shut out the Athletic yesterday in
the first Karae of tho annual Spring
series; scoro, i to 0. It was the first
time in the history ol' the Philadelphia
club that the tlrst game has been
taken from llic world's champions.
The popular idea ol' the Phillies re
ceived a rude shock. BOBS Dooin's
team was conceived to have a wrecked
pitching staff and no shortstop to
speak of. The players were believed
to be in poor condition from the re
verses they met with in their zealous
pursuit of Spring training. Yester
day's game upset this misconception,
for two of their pitchers, Cy Marshall
and Young Joe Oeschger, just out of
college, did nothing more during the
afternoon but blank the world's cham
pions, undoubtedly the best hitting
team In the world.
The supposedly deficient shortstop,
Harold Irelan by name, ate up every
thing that came his way as though he
had been starved up for a week in
preparation for the event. Two double
plays which he started were his best
feats. The players seemed to be quite
normal in condition—if anything a
little better than on this day in his
tory. 19X3. The score by inidngs:
Phillies .... 31000000 o—4 7 0
Athletics .. 00000000 o—o 4 1
R. H. E

THICK MEET DATE
Norristown High Will Be Asked to
Change Time of Their
Changing the date for the annual
high school meet In Harrisburg from
May 9 to May 15 has brought about a
conflict with the annual high school
meet at Norristown. If not too late,
an effort will be made by the local
committee to have the Norristown j
date changed. I
Norristown high school has been
quite prominent in track athletics and
the local committee would like to
have the Norristown team come to
Harrisburg. Norristown is also a closo
rival with Reading. Pottstown, Allen
town and other high school teams in
the east and a conflict of dates may
prevent other crack teams from com
ing to Harrisburg.
In view of the fact that the meeting
in Harrisburg on May 10 Is a Statb
meet, Reading will cancel the Norris
town meet and come to this city. Re
ferring to Reading's probable with
drawal from the Norristown meet, the
Reading Eagle says:
"The prize of the Harrisburg meet
is a handsome oak shield with bronze
embellishments, to become the perma
nent property of the school which
wins the meet the greatest number of
times out of a series of seven years.
The meet this year is the last of the
series, with Heading having two less.
Central Manual of Philadelphia two
legs, and Harrisburg and Steelton
schools each haying one leg on the
"The practice of candidates on
George Field continues every after
noon that weather permits. The class
teams are developing excellent ma
terial. A number of Interclass meets
will shortly be held."
