Duncannon and Blain
to Fight For Title
To decide the baseball champion
ship of Perry county a game will be
played within the next two
by Blain and Duncannon, the two
teams which battled at Sherman's
Park on Saturday with the result
that Blain won, 1-0. Duncannon had
a strong lineup with many celebrated
warriors who have appeared in Har
risburg, but Blain finally won out,
partly by Garverich losing control in
the ninth. Spotts probably saved the
game for Blain with a circus catch
in deep left. It was a very hard

Worlds Series Turns on Weeks Games;
Cubs and Red Socks Are Picked to Win
When the Chicago Cubs trimmed
McGraw's Giants four times out of
Ave in Gotham, recently, that prob
ably settled the pennant, and so far
as the most careful observers can
see the post-season contest will be
between Cubs and Red Sox.
About the only remaining possi
bility of an upset before the finish is
contained in the long series which
the Pirates and Cubs operied yester
day. The forces of Bezdek and
Mitchell are to play nine straight
games within a period of five days,
and the New York clubs last fight
ing chance will hinge on what the
Buccaneers manage to accomplish
in that time.
If*the Corsairs should happen to
strike one of their best streaks and
sweep the Cubs off their feet, cap
turing the big end of the series, and
the McGrawltes should meanwhile
pull themselves together and fatten
up at the expense of the Boston
Braves, to whom they have not lost
a game this season, there might be
an* opportunity for the 1917 cham
pions to get back in the running and
put up a fight for the pennant in
the homestretch.
If that doesn't happen, however,
the race will be as good as over in
another week. True, the Giants still
have another series of their own to
play with the Cubs, but there is very
little nourishment in that for New
York rooters, in view of what the
Bruins have done to the Gotham
crowd in previous meetings this year.
As a matter of fact. New York's
games with Chicago have had more
to do with putting the McGrawites
out of the race than any other fac
tor. When opposed to the one club
that they had to beat in order to bag
the championship the Giants have
made a wretched showing.
If they had come close to holding
their own in their interclub contests
with their only pehnant rivals, Mc-
Graw's men would now be on prac
tically even terms with the Mitchell
machine, and if they had won nine
of the seventeen games, they would
be in possession of first place.
But, far from accomplishing any
thing of that sort, last year's flag
winners have won only five games of
the seventeen played with the
Bruins, and therein is the real ex
planation of Chicago's present ad
vantage and its prospective pennant
New York has not won a single
series out of the four played with
the Cubs this season and in only
one of them did the Easterners get
an even break. When ths Giants
first appeared in Chicago the Bruins
cleaned up three games in a row.
Four meetings at the Polo grounds
later resulted in a fifty-fifty split,
the Cubs next took three out of five
battles on their home grounds, and
during their recent invasion of
Gotham they snatched four out of
It follows that the McGrawites
cannot attribute their pennant fail
ure. to any soft picking enjoyed by
the Cubs in games with other teams.
Their own inability to cope with
their rivals has been the cause of it
When it came down to a hand-to
hand test between the two contend
ers the Giants failed to stand up un
der fire, while Mitchell's team was
there forty ways. The superiority of
the Illionis bailers was evident in
every series, and the manner in
which they mauled the only oppo
sition they had to fear at the be
ginning of the race will leave no
room at the finish for any assertions
that they did not win the pennant
on their merits.
The Cubs have been lucky, it must
be admitted, in that while other
clubs continued to lose good players
right along Chicago was permitted
to retain the services of Catcher
Killifer and Shortstop Hollocher,
the loss of either of whom probably
wonjd have been fatal to the team's
pennant chances.
As James Long, sporting editor
extraordinary, remarks: "It didn't
require the greatest team in history
to win the 1918 pennant, but it isn't
every club that can give up a pitch
er like Alexander and still beat out
the field, even under the conditions
that stripped the big leagues of much
of their class this year."
In the American League the bet
ting is on Boston to win out, one
reason being that she has three full
'weeks, beginning yepterday, on the
home grounds, and will not have a
game abroad until Labor Day. Cleve
land, her nearest competitor, on the
contrary, must be on the road nearly
the balance of the season. In all
likelihood, therefore, the fans of Chi
cago and Boston will have the ex
treme relish of seeing the 191S pen
nant decided.

Rickey to Succeed Tener?
Branch Rickey, president of
the Cardinals, may be the ndlct
president of the National League.
There is said to be a well-defined
movement on foot to place him
at the head of the organization
when the annual meeting is held
in New York in December.
Rickey is considered one of the
brainiest men connected with
baseball. In addition to his base
ball knowledge. Rickey is a law
yer of no.little merit.
Branch Rickey broke in as a
catcher with Clark Griffith's New
York American League Club. He
then became coach of the Uni
versity of Michigan varsity teams
and from that became a leader
of the Brownies. When the Car
dinals were reorganized Rickey
was made president of the club
and has been highly successful.
The only hitch in front of
Rickey is his connection with the
Cardinals. If he can get away
from the local club he is likely to
be named to succeed John K.
Emergency Fleet Corporation
Men Say Every Industry Is
Needed in Shipbuilding
"If America needs ships to win
this war, for God's'sake let's give
them ships!" This was the keynote
of a conference between officials of
the United Emergency Fleet Corpo
ration and the Manuiucturers' Coun
cil of the Chamber of Commerce,
meeting in the Engineers' clubrooms
night. • Various phases of the
work of the district supply commis
sion were presented to the manufac
turers with the object in view of oo
taining more supplies for ship build
ing. How every manufacturer and
every manufacturing plant can help
in the building of ships, was explain
ed by J. H. Heron, a welfare expert
and P. J. Mitten, a representative of
the Emergenc- Fleet orporation. An
important point laid before the man
ufacturers was the fact that every
plant can help, no matter whether it
manufactures bedding or steel, silk
or candy. There is need for every
thing on board ship that is needed
in the home, the shipbuilders ex
Urges Co-Opcration
Mr. Heron, welfare expert was the
first speaker, giving a straight-from
the-shoulder talk in which he laid
great stress upon the co-operation of
the employer and the employe. "The
more we say 'Good morning' to the
man under us, the more we're going
to get out of him," he emphasized.
"Uncle Sam has recognized the value
of co-operation and friendship with
his men. He has asked them to work
with him.
"We've got to get one thing down
deep into our souls, and that is the
spirit of giving. We must give our
hearts and our money to the cause of
the war. And if ships are necessary
for the winning of this war, for
God's sake let's give them ships!
"And we need to get deep down in
our souls the will to win! We must
do a little more to-day than we did
yesterday, and a little more than that
to-morrow!" ,
Men Work 69 Hours Weekly
Many instances of the eo-operatiofa
of the employer and the employe
were related by Mr. Heron. He urged
that the win-the-war spirit be in
jected Into the soul of every Ameri
can workman in every war material
factory and plant. "In Baltimore,"
he told the manufacturers, "there is
a plant where the men are working
69 hours each week. The average in
other shops is far below this. These
men are three months ahead of their
schedule. Duri :g the hot weather
when other plants shut down, these
men kept on working. The manage
ment warned them to decrease the
number of hours to 60 but they re
fused. They had the win-the-war
Touching on the woman's side of
building and war work, Mr. Heron
cited many instances of the work of
the woman. "In England there are
six million women working who
never worked before." He told of a
certain plant where a kind of gas
shells were manufactured. In this
plant, women sacrificed themselves
to the cause of their country. Work
ing there, the hair and the skin be
came yellow. But they did not stop
their work. "The women here are en
tering war work too. In a certain
Trenton plant X recently visited
there were 250 girls who worked
through the terrific heat. The men
who worked in the plant, stopped be
cause they had no ice water, but the
women worked on! The girls showed
them up'. We've got to encourage the
girls and co-operate with them!"
In his talk, Mr. Heron introduced
a number of poems, many of them
being original. One of these was a
delightful little bit of verse about
the Scotch haggis pudding, telling of
the heroism of the Scotch troops. Mr.
Heron, it may be added, said he was
partial to the Scotch, since he is a
canny Scot himself.
Tolls bf Building Progress
The events which led up to the or
ganization of the Emergency Fleet
Corporation were narrated by P. J.
Mitten in an interesting address. He
told of the great demand for ships
suddenly created by the war and how
It was jiecessary for the government
to commandeer shipyards and ships
for transportation of food and sup
plies. The remarkable progress of
the shipbuilders and their ingenuity
were touched upon in his talk. He
gave a list of the various things
needed on board a ship.
A department of the Fleet Corpor
ation about which little is known, is
that department which finds ma
terials for those manufacturers en
gaged in work incidental to ship
building. Coal, steel, iron, glass and
whatever else is needed, is found by
this department.
Jacob Lightner, head of the state
employment bureau, was called upon
by Arthur D. Bacon, chairman of the
meeting, to address the men present.
He urged that .measures be taken to
round up the slackers and the idlers
on the streets of the city. Martin A.
Cuipbler, recently appointed as a
member of the Community Lfibor
Control Board for Dauphin county,
spoke, followed by Kobert H. Irons,
president of the Centrgl Iron and
Steel Company.
Purpose of Meeting Told
Following the addresses,' cards
were distributed among the members
of the council on which the following
purposes for the meeting were out
"The purpose of this meeting:
"To present to the manufacturers
the various phases of work which
come under the jurisdiction of this

turers what conditions exist in their

portant work.
"To impress upon the manufactur

HARRISBURG, PA. It <npt hart a tot
devlJle, and as far as we are concerned
the assertion is true. There may bc
Prettier, daintier and classier acts oni
the stage than Miss Meroff's effort,
hut we have not seen them. The act
if one . ot those nifty European novel
ties that defies description and must
rf® en be appreciated.
The fellow who says dogs and other
apparently intelligent animals do not
have she power of connected thought
should see Hector, the little white,
woolly canine playing at the Parle
Theater this week. This pup may not
b ® able to think, but he makes a
whole lot better bluff at it than some
humans who put their hand out for a
pay envelope once a week. The little
dog is a real wonder and furnishes
one of the most interesting parts of
the park entertainment.
El Cato, the king of the xylophone
players, is playing a return engage
ment at the park with his usual suc
cess. He plays anything the audience
asks him for in a manner so accept
able that El Cato could do the whole
show if he didn't finally break away
and let the next act go on.
Other acts on the park bill are:
Onetta, the dervish whirwind, and The
Three Eddys. In a laughable comedy
acrobatic stunt.
For Thursday evening the park
management announces a grand free
fireworks display to take place before
the performance begins in the thea
