demy team for a ride In the clouds

called a "practice game." These
practice games are mere childish tilts,
with no rough stuff, and the two
managers were only Interested in
trying out their demon athletes at
various points in the lineup. Of,
course, sometimes, even in these
friendly bickerings things happen, so
thought Manager Loose, at least,
when a great big rough clxidbuster
tackled him so hard after he made a
daisy catch that all the muscles of
his left leg were stlgtosslcd, his knee
disjointed and he was so stove up In
general that the first aid carried
him off. The soldiers made so many
goals that Manuger Lieutenant Blum

machine, but it did not arrive in time
and so no one will ever know the
The fray was so disconcerting and,
as it were, confounding, that the
sporting reporter only saw butz
saws and whingtables on the horizon.

touch downs were made, as evidence:*

Boston, Mass., Nov. 13.—Johnny
Dundee, of New York, clashed with
Johnny Buckley, of South Boston, in
the feature six-round bout of the
44-round drive for the United War
Work Campaign Fund, before the
members of the Armory Athletic As
sociation last night. Dundee was
in excellent form and found little dif
ficulty with Buckley. In fact, the
go WHS not quite stiff enough to
meet the desire of the more enthu
siastic fans, but Dundee did not
consider the occasion one for "letting
himself out," and so contented him
self with Just keeping Buckley busy.
In reporting a patriotic gather-
for the soldiers. During t lie first
five minutes of play he dashed across
the goal line for six points, each
time. Ills first game was on a long
end run, the second when he inter
cepted a forward and the third when
he picked up the ball on a fumble and
ran forty yards tnrough a a open ile.d
for another touchdown. This man
also scored a few other touchdowns,
but as we have s.ild, the score was
too high to keep track of the num
ber of touchdowns by each man.
The aviators carried on so l.riskly
that the historiii relates: "Not one
pass that was thrown b> the acting
cuptain of the Blue and Gold during
the entire game was worked, except
one shirt tling that Armstrong
snatched away from England."

Big Program For 1918
The program of the Dauphin Coun
ty Farm Bureau for next year will
include three major projects, it was
announced to-day. They will be soil
fertility work, pork production and
potato culture. Much of the work
done will be in the form of demon
strations. which will make possible
the calling together of farmers at
meetings to show definitely the results
of projects which will improve the
agriculture of the county.
A report has been made on the in
crease in wheat acreage. The increase
was to be 98k acres, but the farmers
of the county have pledged to increase
their acreage 1,254 acres, not includ
ing four townships which huve not re
ported; It is certain the increase will
be 1,710 acres.

"The physical condition of the men
in general is measuring up to the
test about to be put upon it, will men
who have been suffering 'niicles

Dummy drills and other rudimentary
