Two Towns Threaten to Quit
if Non-Resident Player Rule
, Is Not Changed to Suit
The fight over the non-resident
player limit in the Dauphin-Perry
League at a meeting of delegates
from the, different towns in the
Shenk and Tittle storeroom this even
ing. promises to be a bitter one. One
faction favors a fivc-player limit,
while another wants but three.
Two towns are said to have deliv
ered ultimatums to withdraw from the
league, one if the limit is made five
players, and the other if the limit is
not fixed at three.
At a meeting last week, Newport
fans passed a resolution to the er
fect that they would play indepen
dent ball unless the non-resident
player limit were reduced. They do
not feel justified in paying the addi
tional expense for the two extra play
ers. ihey say. _
Iteedsvllle is reported by a Dun
cannon newspaper as taking the
other side, threatening to withdraw
from the league if the player limit
is reduced. They maintain that they
will be unable to put a team in the
field unless the limit is permitted to
remain as it now stands. The Dun
cannon paper goes on to suggest that
ir. the event that Reedsville does
withdraw, that the franchtse ho
awarded to Port Royal, which town
is now clamoring for entrance Into
the league. ... , .
The admission of Fort R°y a > * n
place of Lewistown would serve to
considerably reduce traveling ex
penses, the Duncannon paper de
clares. Some dissatisfaction has al
ready been reported in some of the
towns by reason of the heavy travel
ing expenses that will result tills |
vear through the wide distribution,
of the towns. No town has been sug- ]
gested for the place of Newport if it i
withdraws. The loss of this town]
would admittedly be a great loss to
the league, for it has always hail j
good teams and been a good drawing,

Sammy Schiff Not
to Meet Kilbane Now
Says His Manager
Sporting Editor Ilarrisburg j
Telegraph—Dear Sir: J am writ
ing you in reference to Sammy I
Schiff, your local favorite, who j
looks like the coming champion. :
1 have noticed in your papers j
where the promoters are talking
about a match with Kilbane, but
I would not consider a match !
with the champion at the pres
ent time, as Sammy is only a j
youngster yet and has plenty of ]
time to fight Kilbane. I have
several prominent matches for
Sammy and when 1 think the
proper time comes I will send !
him against the champion, and !
when he does tight him I will J
bring back the new world's
champion to Harrisburg. Would
appreciate your kindness if you
would publish a story in your
paper about Santmy.
Yours truly,

ißoys Eager to Get Home Are
Kept Cheerful by the
K. of C.
Paris, May I.—While looking aft
er the soldiers who have participated
in the battles and who are now with
the Army of Occupation in Germany,
the Knights of Columbus are not
neglecting the boys who have done
the tedious and important work
back in the S. O. S. Six huts are
now located at Jevres, which has
been the principal source of supply
since the Americans landed in
France. From this center, supplies
of every description are sent to be
redistributed to all advanced posts
where soldiers were stationed.
Twenty thousand men, including five \
thousand negroes occupy several'
thousand tents and huts within an I
area of seven miles.
The organization has been so com
plete and efficient that its command
ing officer, Col. C. J. Simons, was
awarded the D. S. C. The Jevres
project indicates the enormous work
accomplished by American engineers
and experts taken from the ranks be
cause their special ability was es
sential in this feature of the war
At the Remault Station at Jevres,
there are ten thousand animals.
There are scores of ground covered
with steel buildings, ready for ship
ment; also supplies of every descrip
tion ready to be forwarded to any
point. The cold storage plant is a
building 970 feet long by 120 feet
wide, with a capacity of 8,000 tons
of beef. The ice plant has a machine
that turns out 500 tons of ice per
day. Approximately 140 miles of
American railroad track, many ma
chine shops and the equipment of
twenty miles of warehouses 50 feet
wide, in cars that arc scattered
throughout the yards of Jevres.
The engineers, electricians, labor
ers and mechanics composing the
organization at this port are dis
appointed in net having taken part in
the actual war. They are homesick
and it is the purpose of the K. of C.
to make pleasant the remaining days
of these soldiers at this camp. Box
ing exhibitions, lectures, serving of
chocolate, musical concerts and
other forms of entertainment have
broken the monotony and according
to army officials, has done much to
console the soldiers who are await
ing orders to return home.
Mount Union High

Very Close Game of Ball Re
sults in Victory, 2-1, With
Wevcdeau the Star
A close battle was fought on the
Island yesterday between Tech and
the Marsh Run soldiers and plenty of
fine points in the game were of use
in the building up of a classy organi
zation Lingle was on the mound for
Tech, and did not seem to have
very much, as the foe clouted him
heavily. He gave his men a lot of
practice, however, and the Tech field
ing was fast and sure. In the matter
of hitting, Tech surely cannot be ex
pected to have a hatting eye so early
in the season, and so 1' razier had no
trouble whiffing a bunch.
Tech gave evidence of power to
come back, whicli is a very good qual
ity. Marsh Run put over a score in
the fifth. With two men on bases,
Sutton singled to right field and Ger
mer made a neat throw home, catch
ing the first runner just before lie
touched the bag. "Johnny" Smith,
the Maroon and Gray backstop, imme
diately hurled the ball to third to
catch the man advancing from sec
ond, but Hinkle allowed the ball to
go by. The man rounded the third
sack and raced across the home plate
This was tough luck, but Tech
braced up then und Wevedeau evened
up tilings in the sixth with some
tricky baserunning and then followed
later with a timely hit, which gave
Tech two runs in total.

Sportsmen Hotly Protest
Closing Big Game Country
Intense bitterness prevails in the
ranks of game hunters, not only in
Harrisburg, but nil over the State,
regarding the move to close the road
in Clark's Valley, so that thousands
of hunters and fishermen will be
barred out. A so-called conserva
tion bill is now under consideration
in the State Legislature and yester
day Senator Daix, of Philadelphia,
chairman of the Appropriations
Committee, surprised all his hearers
by the statement that he would not
report the bill out of committee un
til its members show some interest
in it.
"This committee has forty-two
members," said Senator Daix. "This
was supposed to be a full committee
meeting. Yet here I am as chair
man, and with three members sit
ting with me. I don't intend to re
port this bill out until the members
of the Senate of Pennsylvania show
some interest in it."
Representatives from a number of
sportsmen's associations loudly ap
plauded this, and some of them forc
ibly emphasized that the bill gave
too much power to the proposed Con
servation Commission, which is in
tended to combine into one the pres
ent Department of Fisheries, De-
Man Suddenly Attacked by
Animal, and They Have

Mnrysvllle, Pa., May I.—Charles E.
Graybill, a prominent Upper Cove
farmer, narrowly escaped serious in
jury when attacked by a vicious bull
on his farm, but escaped with a few
minor bruises.
The animal charged Graybill while
he was working about the barn, and
before he was aware of the animal's
intention, knocked him down with
considerable ' force and attempted to
strike him with his forefeet. Gray
bill managed to regain a standing po
sition and succeeded in getting a firm
grasp on the infuriated animal's
nose, which he managed to retafh
until the animal was subdued.

This agitation, however, is sec
ondary to the move by Dauphin
county sportsmen who are fighting
to prevent the closing of game ter
ritory in the upper end of the coun
ty. One well-known big game hunt
er to-day likened the efforts of the
Consolidated Water Company to the
land magnates of England, 19 of
whom are said to own the bulk of
land in that island. One of the most
active persons in opposing the ef
fort to close up Clark's Valley and
pat eel it out in private hunting
parks is J. Allen Barrett, who has
written an appeal to a multitude of
sportsmen asking their help. An
other leader is H. E. Buffington, of
Lykens. who points out the injus
tice of this proposition in the fact
that 9,500 hunters' licenses are is
sued each season for Dauphin coun
ty, and the Clark and Powell valleys
are the popular stamping ground. A
strong argument heard on all sides
is that the money from licenses
makes the fund used by the State
to stock rivers, creeks and ponds
and by closing a vast tract of ter
ritory this contribution is cut down.

Three-fourths of the Increase
Last Year Was in
Washington, May 1. — American
dressed meat production, including
lard, amounted in 1918 to 20,129,-
800',000 pounds—a quantity never
before approached in magnitude by
the live stock industry of this or any
other country. The corrsponding
figure for 1917 was 16,317,300,000
Three-fourths of this enormous
increase was in pork and one-fourth
was in beef.
The meat surplus in 1918 was so
great that extra export demands
made little impression on it, although
1918 export shipments of meat and
lard nearly doubled the 1917 figures
—rising slightly less than one and
three - fourths billion pounds to
slightly more than 3 billion pounds
—and these figures do not include
shipments to American military |
forces abroad.
The aggregate 1917 consumption
of dressed meat and lard in the
United States was approximately
fourteen and one-half billion pounds,
but in 1918 it rose to seventeen and
one-quarter billion pounds. This
means, after allowing for increase
in population, and addition of twen
ty-three pounds for every man,
woman and child in the country, de
spite the food conservation cam
paign which in 1917 caused con
sumption to decline considerably.
