Work All Day and Box All Night
Is Sammy Schiff's Activity
Sammy SchifT, Harrisburg's pre
mier boxer, scrapped four rounds
with Tim Droney, at Lancaster, for
f" the benefit of the ynited War Work
Fund, without a decision. A house
filled to the roof witnessed the.fray
and Sammy's leff-hunded clever
ness was applauded wildly again and
again. This local athlete is greatly
to be commended for his persistency
and ambition. He works every day,
here, in an industry; lias little time
to train, and yet, unlike the Fultons
•' and Willards, he freely gives his
services to the big cause, and fur
thermore takes on every foe who

spectacular, while his gamencss is
noticeable. He will be seen here
again, probably, on November 26
when tlie Motive Power A. A. ex
pccts to hold another exhibition at
its arena, and Frankie Clark is to
be his opponent. The two met re
cently in Philadelphia and put up a
lively bout.
"I'd rather box-tight than eat,"
observed Mr. Schiff, on returning i
from Lancaster. "I believe that'
every able-bodied chap, even though |
he has to work all day, should take |
up some sport and specialise. 1 I

Peculiar Situation Which De- \
velopcd in New England
League Last Summer
One of the chief charms of baseball. |
according to a famous veteran are
the new plays and situations which .
constantly arise in diamond battles. :
It is doubtful, however, if ho ever j
t conceived of a situation similar to (
that which arose during a game play- \
ed in New England during the past j
It was in the fifth inning three
runners on the bases and none out
when a batter stepped to the plate. I
Right at his heels came the next I
player entitled to bat, who took posi- >
tion just a step or two away from;
the batter's box. The batter hit a '
sharp bounder directly at the pitcher I
and dashed for first base while all j
the runners raced around the bases j
/ toward* home.
It appeared to be an easy matter :
, * to throw out the player, attempting!
to score from third, at the plate and j J
the pitcher promptly threw to the j
'' catcher, who was all set to complete
the play. At this point, however, the
unusual happened. The man who
had been awaiting his turn at the
bat Jumped into position and as the
ball shot across the plate took a
mighty swing at it driving the bail
far into the outfield for a home run;
five runs crossing the plate before
the ball could be retrieved.
Something resembling a riot among
the players of the two teams and
the partisan spectators immediately
develofted and there was a rush for
e the umpire. After much argument
the arbiter declared the hit and sub
sequent runs legally scored, basing
his decision upon the fact that both
the pitcher and catcher were in their
respective positions when the ball
was thrown up to the plate. Not sat
isfied with this ruling the losing team
took the case to high basebll auth
orities, who, after a careful study
of the circumstances, reversed the
umpire's verdict. It was I their de- ,
clslon. which has generally been ac
• cepted as correct, that the runner'
attempting to score from third, was
out owing to the interference of the j
batter, who by hitting the ball thrown i
to complete the play at the plate, j
' prevented the putout being accom- : ,
The rule governing this case is j
found in the official baseball code 1
* under rule 50, section 15; which reads: ' 1
"The base runner is out; if with one '
or no one out and a base runner on '
third base, the batsman interferes .
with a play being made at the home J
With the runner out as the result !
of Interference the situation after
the play is as follows: there are still
three men on base; one out and the
player who drove out the alleged \
home run comes to bat in regular i
turn his Illegal hitting of the ball '
having resulted In putting out the 1
base runner without affecting his j
status as a batsman. A somewhat ]

I At the outbreak of the great war
j more than fifty months ago one
I athletic expert predicted that few,
I if any, of the sportsmen who took
"j part In the great struggle would ever
jbe soen In competition again. "Life
| in the trenches will Incapacitate
] them for any sport, oven though
they como through unscathod-ln tho

Tronch fever, rheuntntlsm and other
ailments were expected to work tho

who wero called to the colors of
their various countries.
Just how entirely wrong expert
j opinion can be is proved by tho fact
i that to-day, after four long find
I wearisome years of bitter sfritggle,
! the finest athletes in the world are
in the trenches, and some of these
have been in the war from its very

Huns give the unlucky wretches that

' Committee Is Named
The finance committee, which met
, this morning authorized a special re
lief committee, including Cominis
] sioiter C. \V. Burtnett und R. Ross
Seaman, to advance funds at once,
leaving It to them to determine the
amounts which are needed by the
' various families, some of whom lost
i almost everything because of the
storiv damage.
On the finance committee are
! Mayor Keister, B. F. Blough, D. E.
I Tracy, George \V. Reily, A. S. Patter
son, William Jennings, Commission
ier Burtnett, Mr. Seaman, Donald 1
' McCormick, J. William Bowman
j and David Kaufman.
Mr. Kaufman, the chairman, said
! to-day that the public is urged to
| contribute liberally to the relief fund
I because of the pressing need of some
i of the residents in the storm-swept
j district. "All of these families have
| been cared for and do not need food,
but some of them do need financial
assistance to meet repair costs and
other expenses caused by the storm.
To Help at Once
"The special relief committee—
Commissioner Burtnett and Mr. Sea
man—will proceed to give assistance
at once. The other members in ses
sion to-day authorized this action
and are now appealing for public
subscriptions. The people of Harrls

I morale, and consequently its health,
j have been one of the wonder spots of
, Uncle Sam's participation in the !
1 1 great war—and will continue to be.
j The answer here is the V. M. C. A.. ,
I the Knights of Columbus, the Sal- I
, vutlon Army, and other organlza- j
i tions which have spent their all !
! freely in keeping up the moral and
i physical Strength of our fighters. i
An American officer, returned i
from France, in speuking of the
| tenacity of the Y. M. C. A. men in j
their efforts to help our doughboys,
! has said: "These Y. M. C. A. men 1
! are simply wonderful. They arc;
i everywhere, and seem to be un
canny in their ability to scent out
an action. Nt long ago my battal
ion went over, and after about forty
; minutes of pretty stiff work reached
i its objective. We had hardly round- j
! ed up our prisoners and dug in a'
! bit when I noticed that all of the ]
men were smoking and chewing on \
| chocolate. In a few minutes I spot- •
i ted the 'Y* man standing by with a
; sheepish grin in his face. I asked
; him how he made it in such a hurry,
j and he answered, 'Oh, I 'don't know,
! I just came along somehow.'."
"Thouf& the troops don't make a
| lot of fuss over a thing like this, !
j they appreciate it down deep. To
| have smokes and sweets passed out
to them almost in the heat of action j
drives home the thought that the <
folks back home havp provided this I
stuff, and the 'Y' man brought it up
to the tiring line at the risk of his
life. Men who are cared for in
this way, even to the little details,
are bound to possess a superior
! brand of morale."
j It may be, however, that many a
; lad who has gone tTiroligh the war j
| will never be seen on the athletic i
j field again, for as one New Yorker
] writing from the trenches, puts it:
"Gee, what am I going to do for
'excitement when this war is over?"
[ contribute as much as possible."
Practically all the "temporary re
pair work to damaged houses in
I Riverside has been completed and
j with the houses again under roofs I
! there will be no further damage to j
| them or to furniture of the families
I because of exposure to rain.

College Boy Breaks
National Record in
Run of 102 Yards j
The star play in the Gettys
burg-Eucknell game here recent- j
ly was a 95-yard run by Lewis,
of Bucknell, who caught a kick
off from Braem and ran nearly
the length of the Held, which is
100 yards, ahd made goal. The
fans were electrified and many
wise guys figured that this must
be a record feat. But it was feeble
compared to the stunt of Loudy
Welborn, of Butler College, not
yet 18 years old, who has the re
nown of making the longest run
for a touchdown on an intercept
ed forward pass in the history of
American collegiate football.
In the annaul game between
Franklin College and Butler,
played at Irwin lj,old last Satur- ;
day, Welborn ran 102 yards for
a touchdown after intercepting a
Franklin forward pass. This is
a world's record, exceeding, all
other records for the same play
by seventeen yards, according to
a list of famous runs compiled by ,
Parke H. Davis, football statis- !
Thb play occurred in tho last J
three minutes of play. Welborn, I
who- was on the Butler scrub j
team for the first time last year, i
was sent in as quarterback in the '
last of the third quarter after j
Captain Harold Dailey had been '
injured. Franklin had scored a j
safety shortly before, and the j
score stood 2 to 0 against Butler. !
The Butler team could not hold !
the Franklin eleven, which out
weighed the Butlerites twelve
pounds to a man, on tho slippery, i
field, and Franklin marched slow
ly but steadily toward another |
On Butler's ten-yard line the i
Franklin quarter called for a for- J
ward pass. The play was a fake I
line plunge. The Franklin bafks
were pulled in close, and the ends I
also in. Butler and the crowd ex- |
pected a lino plunge. The pass
was intercepted by Welborn two !
yards behind his own goal. He.
caught it cleanly and started
worming his way through both
his own and the Franklin team.'
Mendenhall was the only other" ;
man on the fielid who realized the
possibilities of the play. He Jump
ed ahead of Welborn and made
sonic interference for him. After
several seconds, when it seemed
that ho would fall, Welborn I
struggled through with four '
Franklin men after him. His |
footing was insecure, but he
started away like a fresh track i
mnn making a 100-yard dash. |
Several times he looked back, and i
until he had crossed the center !
of the field he was not safe from
pursuit. The Franklin men fagged j
as the sprint continued, and Wei- I
born led them by ten yards when j
he crpssed the goal for the game
ivlnnlng touchdown. He dropped |
from exhaustion immediately aft- j

West End is by no means satisfied
to let# Tarsus claim the city cham

the manager the team demands a
return fray on November 30. Says
"The championship hasn't been
won or won't be decided until Tar
sus has defeated West End the best
out of a series of three games, which
the management of both teams
agreed to play when the arrange
