West End Ball Club
Has All-Star Cast
The West End baseball club which
'lias furnished baseball to fans of this
city for the last ten years, will open
their Saturday game season" this
Coming Saturday, when they will
meet the Methodist Boys' club, of
this city. This is the same club that
applied for admission to the twi
light league and perhaps would now
be members of that strong organiza
tion but for the fact tha the Motive
Tower had the proposition under
consideration at that time. It is
generally understood that should
there at atny time in the fu
ture be an opening the Boys' Club I
will have the first chance for the I
franchise. Manager Flickinger has ]
gathered together a strong bunch of
talent and says he will give the
West End some chance for their
opening game. He has been follow
ing the West End play in their twi
light games to get a line on them.
The West End team is going a fast
clip in this league, and their roster
shows some of the best players in the
county. Amongst those available for
Saturday games as well as twilight,
are as follows: Conklin, youngster
of 17 years, is catching in big league
style, and after seeing this boy
handle "Kid" Stucker's delivery
Monday evening, when the "Kid" was
at his best, the fans are satisfied
the boy is a comer. Stucker, who has
Been service with Connie Mack, and
the last two years with Newport, of
the Dauphin l Perry League will have
the following pitchers, all stars in
amateur baseball world following his
exampld: "Lefty" Challanger, just
returned from the base hospital at
Carlisle, where he was recovering
from injuries received in France,
"Lefty" being a West End favorite
before leaving for the battlefield.
"Dode" Finnen, who was with the
Harrisburg Tri-State team in the
days of professional ball here.
"Dode" is known for his speed and
should be a star in the evening
games. John Jones, now at Villanova
College, will be home shortly and
take his turn on the mound, while
the club has the signature of George
Levan, the iron man of the Hill
l.eague to a contract. He will not
be available for all games, but when
George does work he will be able to
bring home many victories. First
base is covered by "Dusty" Motter, a
West End idol. "Dusty" has played
this sack for Duncannon for several
seasons. Motter is known for his
clouting. Second sack will have that
all around athlete "Ike" McCord,
who has seen service in the Southern
League for the last several seasons,
and will make the fans in this town
think of big circus stunts when the
season gets under way. At short
stop is the captain of the club, "Bill"
Kuker. "Bill" covers this field like
"Rabbit" Manville. and if he could
hit as well as he fields, he would not
be with this club. But most likely
making his living with the big
leagues, although he does some hit
ting here.
Third base is covered by Harry
Kline, he having developed Into a
reliable third sacker, working for the

"Scotty" Knight, an old and reliable
West End player, is filling in as
utility player, he having recently re

battlefield in France. "Snowball"
Winters has written friends that he
expects to be home soon, and this
means much strength to the pitching
corps. Harry Bell, last years's cap
tain and second sacker is also ex
pected home hourly, he having ar
rived on this side. Pat Regan, tne
big all-around star wijl soon be
available for work, he at present,
being alloted to work away from
home. The manager is now complet
ing his Saturday schedule and would
like to hear from all managers of
first class clubs desiring games. It
is expected that within a few weeks
bleachers will be placed in position
for the fans.
Saturday gimes will start at 3.45
o'clock with "At" Baxter umpiring.
The management takes this means of
thanking those who have contribu
ted to the club, and assure them a
go- d brand of ball all season.
East End Wants

The fast East End Club intended to
play Hershey on Saturday, but the
Hersheyites canceled, and now East
End will take on any first class club
at home or away. The headquarters

Tommy Draak Will Wrestle
Dr. Roller Here On May 20
Local wrestling fans who have
been anxiously waiting for the re
turn of the ancient sport to Harris
burg, have been joyously stirred up
by the announcement that Dr. Roller
the famous physician wrestler, will
again be seen in action at the Chest
nut street auditorium on next Tues
day night, when he meets Tom
Draak, the champion heavyweight
of the Netherlands, in a match that
will go two falls out of three to a
What makes Tuesday's match one
of real interest is the fact that this
will be the second meeting of Roller
and Draak. The last meeting of this
pair took place In the New York
tournament and after two hours of
the most sensational wrestling seen
in the big tourney the match was
called a draw by the referee. Draak
has repeatedly challenged Roller for
a return match since that meeting
and it was finally brought about by
the efforts of the local promoter.
Tuesday's match will go to a finish

develope into the most sensational

In regard to the track meet, Tech
has queered that meet for the last
five years. If State were wise that
institution would send Tech an in

soon as Tech enters, the other State

so long since any other high school
has won, that one's memory must
return to the winning track teams up
at Central that romped home with
the cups and whatnot prior to the
