The 73 .per cent, advance in

this additional increase in coal

Tome School Planning
Huge Spring meet
The Tome School, down near
Baltimore, which, like many other
classy institutions, lost to the
Harrisburg Tech, is going to have
a stellar spring meet on May 17,
with the largest crowd sand list o£
entries in the history ol the place.
The Tolchester Company, ot Bal
timore, has contracted to run an
excursion from Baltimore, the
steamer to leave Bight street at S
a. m. and to afford room for 300
passengers. The excursion, which
is in charge of Messrs. Coulborn
and Smeud, of Baltimore City Col
lege, promises not only an ideal
outing up the river and on Tome's
beautiful campus, but also the wit

Hans have been carefully laid
for all details of boat, train and
automobile transportation and for
entertainment, housing and meals.
The plaques, cups, and medals to
be awarded have been carefully se
lected and are the best ever offer
ed by the school.
The committee feels especially
pleased with the selection of of
ficials who are to carry on the
maet. The clockwork system,
which has always marked Tome's
meets, will be in evidence more
than ever this year. I.atrobo
Cogswell, the president of the
Southern A. A. V., has agreed to
act as clerk of course; George J.
Turner, as referee; M. H. Markle,
as starter; W. J. Beimkehler, C. C.
Beuerlein, R. F. Baiard. James Mc-
Callester, Soy Pepper and C. H.
Katenkamk as timers and judges.
These officials, well-known sports
men, are sufficient in themselves to
assure the success of the meet.
In the evening, after the meet,
an interesting entertainment in
Memorial Hall will be provided es
pecially for the benefit of visitors.
The school is very fortunate to ob
tain for the occasion the Johns
Hopkins University Dramatic Club,
which will present Bernard.
Shaw's "You Never Can Tell." The
present outlook seems to indicate
that the meet of 1919 will eclipse
anything of its kind in the South.

Moses Frank, the used ex-president
of the Baltimore Orioles, committed
suicide in Baltimore yesterday. He
was found early yesterday morning in
his room dead from gas. Frank had
ihvested quite a lot of money in base
ball and loved the game as few men
do. Baseball was his one pastime. He
cared for no other. He was president
of the Orioles from 1903 to 1908.
On Sunday he saw the tirst ball
game in three years, when Jack Dunn
took him out to Oriole Park to see
the Athletics play the Baltimoreans.
He seemed to be in fair health, al
though slightly "out of sorts." After
the game he went to his hotel with
Jack Dunn and Connie Malk in their
automobile and seemed to recover his
good spirits.
Reading, Pa., April 9. Twenty
tw 0 victories in twenty-eight starts
is the record made this season by the
Reading High basketball team. While
the team did not win the Central
Pennsylvania Scholastic League pen
nant, it aroused enough interest to
make the season the biggest money
maker in the history of the cage
sport at Reading High.
Since the disbanding of the old
Eastern League the Red and Black
live has been regarded as Reading's
representative team. There is just
as much interest in the high team's
success as there was in the Reading's
professional club when the Eastern
League was nourishing. No athletic
team of Rending High ever won so
many outside rooters as the cage
quintet did this year.
Reading High wound up its season
by losing to tiie strong Mahanoy City
High School five in a sensational
game. Mahanoy City has the strong
est team that ever represented that
city on the lloor. Though the locals
were still tired from the game they
had at Lebanon, they put up a fairly
good brand of basketball,
