Saturday's Score
Marysville, 9; Newport, 2.
Millersburg, 9; Duncaimon, 4.
Marvsville swamped Newport in a
Dauphin-Perry League gaVic at
Newport on Saturday by the score of
9 to 2, while Millersburg had no
trouble with Duncannon after the I
fifth inning, winning out by a 9-4
score. The Marysville team con
tinues in the lead with a one run
margin over the fast moving Millers
burgians. , ,
Marysville, however, paid dearly
for her game with the loss of Fred
die Lightner, crack center-fielder.
Lightner suffered a badly injured
left leg when he stole second base
after singling in the eighth inning,
and may be out of the game the
greater part of the season. His
spikes caught in the bag and threw
him over when he slid and physi
cians are unable to determine
whether it is a severe sprain or
whether several small bones ha\ e
been snapped. An X-ray examina
tion of the leg is being made this af
ternoon-. Lightner's playing was
brilliant throughout the entire con
test. , , .„
Marvsville had little trouble in
solving the deliveries of Ray AA ertz
or "Buck" Gilday. So ferocious was
the onslaught on the delivery or
AVertz, the southpaw, that he was
forced to /etire amid the fusillade
in the fourth inning. Gilday. too,
was unable to hold the Marysville
clubbers in check. A total of four
teen hits were garnered off these
hurlers. or.-e of which was a home
run over the right field fence b>
Shortstop Gerdes. The hitting of
Gerdes and F. Lightner was a bi„
feature of the play.
Newport hurlers. too were giNen
poor support. Five errors of com
mission were recorded and many
more of omission do not appear on
the score. On the other hand, the
Marvsville infield and outfield per
formed brilliantly and gave high
class support to Harry Biever, forty
years young, who pitched gilt-edge
ball Newport managed to collect
a trio of hits off his delivery, one
of which was a long drive over the
left field fence by H. Wagner for
the circuit and the other a two
bagger by Rush.
The game at Duncannon between
Millersburg and Duncannorr was
close until the sixth inning with
Duncannon having an advantage of
one run-. Millersburg scored three
runs in that inning and five more
in the seventh, putting the game on
Earl Waltz had allowed the Mil- 1
lersburgians but two hits until that
inning when- after one was out in
that inning, a Millersburg man hit
safely and the third batter hit a
line drive to Mutzabaugh. In the
attempt to double the runner off
first, Heckendorn dropped the ball.
Another single followed arrd then
Salada, lined out a home run and
scored three runs, contributing nta-

Freddie Lightner, Marysville out
fielder who was injured Saturday,
was just rounding into form after
being out of the game foT two sea
sons. His three safeties and two
stolen bases on Saturday speak for
themselves. In previous games he
haA startled the crowds with his base
running. His hitting was rapidly
becoming of a high quality. His ab
sence from the Marysville lineup will
be keenly felt.
Roy Heckendorn and Abie Dear

from France. Heckendorn served
j with a Bucknell Ambulance unit

Make 133 Pounds For
Johnny Dundee Tonight
To-night at Philadelphia, Benny
! Leonard, lightweight champion,
j meets Johnny Dundee, it being stip
ulated that the champ shall weigh
133 pounds at 6 p. m. This will be
tho fifth meeting of the two. Once
Dundee put Leonard on his back
1 with a right to the jaw. Since that
tight in the Olympia, it has been
Johnny's aVnbition to put Benny
down for good. Leonard also harbors
j a wish to put little Johnny away.
In their last fight which took place
in Newark a couple of months ago,
; Leonard had the slightest, of shades
'on the Scotch AA r op. Lew Tendler,
will challenge the winner from the
ring. Lew, however, insists that the
weight he 133 pounds ringside.
I A bout which Is creating almost
i as much interest as the windup will
Ibe the fraeas between Eddie Moy
! and Irish Patsy Cline. There are few
1 men as popular as Cline in Philadel-
I phia. He has not exhibited for al-
Jmost a year, his last appearance be
ing when he fought the wonderful
draw with Lew Tendler at Shibe
Park. He is reported to be as good
r.s ever, but he will-have to travel at
a fast pace to defeat. Moy. \
Harry Greb, who also' made good
at Shibe Park last year when he de
feated Battling Levinsky and Soldier
Bartficld. will entertain Joe Borell,
in the opening bout. There "will also

Dr. Posey Equals Hawkins'
Record of Last Year; He
Also Breaks 100 Straight
W, W. Posey hung up a record for
local trap shots by breaking straight
in four twenty-flve-target events in
the Lancaster Gun Club shoot Satur
day. This i 3 the second time the feat
was accomplished, J. Mowell Haw
kins, the Harrisburg professional,
having broken straight at the State
tournament in June, 1918. Twelve
of fourteen shooters went through
the full program of 100 targets.
Among the contestants was Wil
liam Urlass, who has recently re
turned from Alaska, after a long ab
sence from this city. He is a trapper
and hunter in the Far NortlTT" but
this was his first experience at the
target game. Mr. Posey's exhibition
was a remarkable one. The day was
ideal, but the targets were elusive.
Every break, however, was clean
and the clays were completely pul
verized. Following were the scores:
W. W. Posey, 100; E. J. Eshleman,
90; A. W. Weiler, 88; A. B. Rote, 77;

Willard So Confident
Will Ask His Wife
to Witness the Fight
Jess Willard apparently is so
confident that he will triumph
over Jack Dempsey when they
meet in their heavyweight cham
pionship contest, July 4, that he
intends to ask Mrs. Willard if she
will witness the match. This move
on the part of the champion,
boxing experts said, is the real
test of his confidence, because
they said, he would not think of
permitting his wife to witness the
spectacle if he thought he would
be defeated.
"My wife has never seen me in
a contest," Willard said, "and has
never told me that she would like
to see me in a ring, but I have
an idea she would anjoy being
here July 4. It will be a remark
able scene, and I don't want her
to miss it if she cares to come."

The Swatara team redeemed itself
when the following players volun
teered to play the remainder of the
season: Klrby, Motter, Wilsbach,
De Sandis, A. Michlovitz, M. Mlchlo
vitz and Zeigler.
The Swatara team was consider
ably weakened by losing six players
who resigned their positions on the
team, signing to play with Naudain
instead. But, with the addition of
these new players, the Swatara team
expects to come back stronger than
ever, after losing two forfeited'
contests last week on account of not
having a sufficient number of play
ers and thereby being forced down
to second place in the league race.
The Swatara roster at present is;
Prowell, Snyder, Swartz, Nye, Lay

London Physician Declares
Habit Decreases the
Birth Rate
London, June 16.—Meat eating is
injurious to the vitality of the race.
Dr. Josiah Oldfield, a London phy
sician told the Fruitarian Society the
other day.
"In every country," he went on,
"where meat-eating is a material
habit the birth rate has decreased in
the last fifty years. On the other
hand, in countries like Bulgaria,
Rumania and Serbia, where meat is
not a national habit the birth rate
is high and increasing."
s Experiments showed, he said,
that meat-eating produced sterility.
Eggs to-day, he remarked, were not
as healthy as they should be because
hens were overtaxed with egg-pro
ducing food, such as fish, blood and
meat. He said that in his hospital
care was taken that the eggs used
were laid by fowls which fed nat
urally on grain or in the fields.

Schiff gave out a statement to-day
saying that his contract with Bar

honey did not show up. When Ma
honey wired Saturday that he /was
injured, Schiff says this cleared him
from meeting Gilley, who was to
have been the substitute.
