Williamson Trade School to
,Bring Good Team
When the Williamson Trade School
football eleven visits this city Satur
day afternoon, the Tech football
squad hopes to have a chance to
show Just how well they can play.
In all of its previous games. Tech
* did not have to extend Itself to win.
The players state that they can play
a better game than what they have
had to do to date. If this is the case,
then it is to be hoped that William
son Trade School, coming from Phila
delphia, -will show enough opposition
to make the Maroon players fight
hard for victory.
No matter what the result of Sat
urday's contest the visitors come to
this city with a clean slate for the
season. They have either won or tied
in every game played to date. Wil
liamson is always well represented
in sports, although they are given
a minimum amount of time to play.
The center position seems to be a
favorite place for the captains this
' year. Most of the leaders of teams
coming to this city have been placed
at the pivotal position. Saturday
Captain Martz passed the pigskin for
Gettysburg. Several weeks ago Cap
tain Grenet was at center for Belle
fonte. This week the leader of the
Williamson squad is Captain Koons,
who will do the passing for the team.
There is no more responsible place
on the team than that at center, and
there is no question about It but that
the best player should be at the
pivot of the combination.
Faye, playing quarterback, is one
of the heaviest players to play that
position who will visit Harrisburg
' this year. He Is the kicker for the
team, can skirt the end, or plunge
through the line. He is one of the
veterans on the team, and a player
whom Tech will have to watch.
• Byerley, at fullback, is the most
important cog in the entire machine.
He is considered versatile in the
back field and has a specialty when it
comes to launching forward passes.
Tech students expect a great game.
The visitors come from Philadelphia
with a good reputation. It should
be a close game, but it remains to,
be seen what will happen when that
Ebner, Lingle, Wilsbach, Beck com

Steelton game Thanksgiving Day.
Dickinson Will Meet
Gettysburg Saturday

By Associated Press
Gettysburg, Pa., Nov. 20.—Gettys
burg College will meet its old rivals
in football on Saturdy. For a num
ber of years the local institution and
Dickinson have not been arrayed
ugainst each other in any kind ol
sports but friendly relations have
been esttfdished in football, which
' will likely be extended to take in all
athletic events, and the two teams
will grapple on the local gridiron.

It is an unwritten law that a pitch

must hurry to one side and let an.in

clad this rule is can bo appreciated
from what Ed. Konetchy did on#!
day last season when he pitched in
stead of first based. Catching high
flies is one of the first baseman's
chief duties, and Konetchy is an ex
pert at the trick, but. where on this
day a batsman hit an infield fly to
ward the pitcher's box, Konetchy
sidestepped and let the third sacker
make the catch.

Towanda, Pa., Nov. 20.—Charged
with violation of the state game
laws, Albert George, Philadelphia,
was arrested here yesterday by
Game Protector Shoemaker after a
.< chase of several miles. George came
to this county for a several days'
hunting trip. Although armed with
a license he refused to follow regu
lations in its proper display and was
taken into custody when it was
learned that he was concealing the
number in his pocket. Pending the
payment of the $2 5 fine his firearms
are being held by the commissioners.
Three Elmira, one Buffalo and one
Johnson City man, all New Yorkers,
were also taken into custody by the
warden yesterday, charged with
hunting in this state without secur
ing non-resident licenses. All were
forced to pay fines of $25 and costs.,
A motorist passing through a
country town stopped to look at a
man who was putting a dog through
a number df clever tricks.
L "Those tricks are some of the best
I ever saw," commented the motor

Horse Is Brave Under
Fire Relate Soldiers
Among the curious facts which
American soldiers have noticed
in the European war is the eager
ness of cavalry mounts for battle
and tfleir reluctance to leave
the battlefield aftr the charge.
The average war horse will chafo
and stamp with impatience while
waiting for the order to advance
and at the signal will dash for
ward like a greyhound released
from the leash, full of fire and
fury and neighing wildly. When
ho arrives at the ranks of the
enemy, he rears, striking and bit
ing savagely at the opposing
horses and trampling down the
If his rider falls, the horse will
dasji along with his fellows and
crash into the ranks of tho en
emy. Participants of tho far
famed charge of the Light Bri
gade have related how scores of
riderless horses rushed down "the
valley of death" right up to the
mouths of the Russian guns and
galloped back to safety with tho
shattered remnant of the brigade.
Half a dozen horses raced neck
and neck with Lord Alfred Paget,
•who rode in advance of the line,
so eager were they to get at the
A cavalryman will tell you that
his mount knows as much of mili
tary as he does himself. The bugle
calls are all familiar to the ex
perienced horse, and instances
have been noted when the rider's
mistake was rectified by the horse
who went through the maneuvers
correctly, regardless of the sol
dier's contrary command.
Horses have been given honors
which thousands of men have
vainly strived for. Among them
was Colonel, Lord Roberts' little
Arab, which carried him in the
famous march' from Kabul to
Kandahar and around whose
neck, at Queen Victoria's express
wish, he hung the Kabul medal.
In the present war, the value
of the horse has been %ecognized
as never before, and great care
has been provided for all army
animals. The British Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to Ani
mals offered its services to the
English government and estab
lished hospitals and provided
veterinary supplies and veterin
arians to aid the army workers.
During the past year the society
was able to cure eighty-four per.
cent, of all the animals turned
over to its care and effected a
saving of millions of dollars to
the British government.
The American army will be
given similar aid by the American
Red Star Animal Belief, an or
ganization founded at tho request
of Secretary of War Baker. Al
ready tho Red Star has accom
plished good work by providing
supplies at the numerous army
camps in this country. Thousands
of copies of the "First Aid" leaf
lets, dealing with tho care of the
army horse, were supplied at the
request of army officers. Experi
enced agents of the Red Star
have visited camps and offered
suggestions for the better care of
the animalsdetailed at the camps*.
Dr. William O. Stillman, presi
dent of the American Humane
Association, is director general of
the Red Star.

proud reply of the kioodle's owner.

in 1900, Heydler became acting pres

the election of Thomas Lynch as the
compromise candidate.
Lew Moren, former pitpher for the
Philadelphia and Cincinnati Nation

tysburg, where he will become a
member of the United States Tank
Corps. He enlisted in the "Treat 'Em

tember 12 draff went into effect, but
owing to the order of Provost Gen
eral Crowder curtailing enlistments,
i Lew was forced to wait until this late
dato to "get in." Lew broke into pro

Season's Biggest Game When
"Yellow Jackets" Meet Pitt
i .
No football game scheduled in
years has aroused so much interest
as is being manifested in the big bat
tle between Pitt and Georgia Tech,
carded for November 23, and judging
from reports from the South similar
enthusiasm is being shown in Dixie
land, The meeting of the Panthers
and the Goldei Tornado is the sole
sport topic throughout the South at
present. It develops, in this tfonnec
tion, that the Yellow Jackets will not
lack rooters or supporters at Forbes
field when they line up against the
Warnerites next Saturday. Atlanta
advices say that the fans of that sec
tion are so wrought up over the con
test that . a large number of them
are planning a layoff from Novem
ber 21 to 24 in order to make the
long trip to Pittsburgh for the pur
pose of attending the game. Not
only that, but many Southern foot
ball enthusiasts now located in the
north are coming to Pittsburgh on
the day if the game. It is said that
Coach John Heisman has received
many letters of encouragement from
Southerners in the north, particular
ly Southern college men, not only
from Tech, but from Sewanee, from
Auburn and other institutions, who
are now at training camps in the
northeastern saying they will
be at Forbes field to make a Southern
holiday on November' 23. Evidently
the home team will have no corner
on the rooting.

Joe Tinker Predicts
Great Baseball Season
The leading minor league baseball
magnates are not only determined
to resume the sport in their circuits
next year, but they confidently pre
dict the season will be an extraordi
narily successful one.
Joo Tinker, the former star short
stop, now president of the Columbus,
Ohio, club of the American Associa
tion, is one of the most optimistic.
He declares thrft the last barrier has
been removed and that baseball is
due for one of its greatest years.
"We anticipate there will be no gov
ernment opposition to the playing of
the national game next year," said
he. "Thfc armistice has been signed,
permanent peace is on tho way,
therefore why not baseball? We of
the American Association heartily
favor a resumption of the game and
we are certain that the fans will
flock to the parks as they did before
the war. In fact, we expect larj er
crowds. Athletics and athletes have
done much to win the war. Baseball

Aggressive Manager to Be
Hoisted as Successor of
" Weeghman
If merit has its reward, Frerf
Mitchell, manager of the Chicago
Club, 1918, champlohs of the Nation
al League, will be elected president
of the club to succeed Charles
Weeghman, Is announced authorita
tively yesterday. The change will be
made within two weeks.
Weeghman, however, will retain
his financial interest in the club.
Weeghman was one of the backers
of the Federal League and he be
came president of the Chicago Na
tionals when the club was absorbed
by himself and associates.
Mitchell came to the club t,wo
years ago fropi Boston, where he
was scout, coach and utility man to
George Stallings.
Mitchell was named manager of
the Cubs two years ago, succeeding
Joe Tinker. Up to that time he was
considered an able assistant and
coach of young pitchers, but none of
the magnates took him seriously.
Fred had a hard time the first
, year, but last season stepped out and
won the championship of the Na
tional League. He fell down in the
world genes, but few expected him
to beat the Red Sox.
Mitchell, like Pat Moran, treats
his players as though they were hu
i man and not a gang of hired men.
He believes in giving the players a
free hand, allows them to do their
own thinking and never "rides" a
man all afternoon for making a poor
play. He always gives his athletes
I credit fo'r trying and assumes they
are doing their best. That is the se
cret of his success.
It is not known who wil succeed
Mitchell as manager of the club,
it is reported that Otto Knabe will be
offered the Job. f

Life's Problems
Are Discussed
Slacker! It is a word of disdain
ful meaning, a term of reproach
coined at the beginning of the war
to designate those who in one form
or another shirked service for their
country. But It was too pat, too
expressive to be localized, and Is
now frequently used to describe any
one who evades his responsibilities
or lies down on his Job.
After all. Isn't the manner In which
we meet our responsibilities the final
I test of character? Tile slacker
simply doesn't meet them. He goes
all around Robin Hood's barn to avoid
making their acquaintance. As an
illustration of the faultless and fin
ished slacker, 1 submit the follow
ing letter:
"Dear Madam: I have been mar
ried twenty years. I slmpLy wor
shipped my wife. I would do so still
if she were only half way square.
We have several children, but for a
number of years she has been In
the habit of departing from home
whenever she chose, leaving myself
i and the children for weeks at a time,
going about where she pleased and
receiving many attentions from men.
"She neglects the house, neglects
the children, neglects everything but
her own selfish desires. Thsf result
■is that the children are showing the
effects of the poor food and care they
receive, and are growing very anemic.
"I havls been not only willing but
anxious to do the right thing by my
wife and children, and have done it
to the best of my ability. Now.
though, I am utterly discouraged. 1
am at work all day and return tired
to my disorderly and uncared-for
home. I provide proper food and
comforts, and my wife is well dress
ed. Can you explain the incon
sistency of such a character? There
are plenty like her. They gad from

They will please and satisfy you
\ ;rtli it
morning to night, reach home about
three minutes before their husbands
do, and then deliberately lie about
how hard-worked they are.
"Respectfully, X."
It is an exceeding bitter cry, and
who could blame the pqor man. He
certainly puts his finger on one of
the slacker's most marked character
istics the effort to camouflage his
or her worthlessness by moaning
about multiple and onerous duties.
Since she has been married for
twenty years, this woman cannot
offer excuses on the score of youth
and inexperience. She ha# made a
deliberate choice of the tilings which A
she consider# worth while, and by thie M
choice is she to be Judged.
Women of this type regard them
selves as respectable. They
achieved honorable marriage; theySi
have contributed future citizens
the Republic; they would be more
than grieved, they would be in
sulted if any one were to insinuate
that instead of being an ornament
to the fetate, they are a menace he
cause they have voluntarily assum
ed certain obligations and then
welshed on the payment.
The State, by the way. fs becom
ing very much Interested in Its lit
tle children. Ways and means of
conserving their health and saving
them ftom the dire effects of Im
poper feeding and malnutrition
are being thoroughly discussed and
considered. It is becoming more and
more generally underwood that the
health, happiness and usefulness of
the adult depends upon the Intelli
gent care which he has received in
infancy and his early years:
In spite of some conspicuous and
suffering examples, the great ma
jority of persons find that their suc
cess fn life, their capacity for ap
plication, Is largely measured by '
their strength of constitution. The
beasts that perish give their youth
all the care necessary to thetr
growth. It has remained for some
human mothers to exhibit indiffer
ence, -cruelty and negLect of their
offspring. i .
The woman who is described In thts
letter is not the only one of her
kind. Every community knows her
prototype. Her husband, her chil
dren. her home is her capital the
only reael capital she will ever have. '
She should be drawing from it an
income of love and gratitude and ap
preciation which would gladden her
life and her life's end. Instead,
there is no income. She has squan
dered her capital recklessly, and the
end is bankruptcy.
Is there a more terrifying sight
than those fading, dissipated women /
clutching at life's tinsel as If It were
I gold and precious stones, trying to
