Out; May Play Alfred
Lancaster, Pa., Oct. 18. —Coach "By"
Dickson put his Franklin and Mar
shall squad through only a slight sig
nal drill last evening, in preparation
for the fray with Pennsylvania Mil
itary College this morning. A big
squad of players left Lancaster over
the Pennsylvania Railroad this morn
ing for Chester.
The same team that defeated Al
. bright last Saturday are scheduled to
* start the game against the cadets.
Marshall was expected to start the
game In the backfleld, but a bruised
hip received in the scrimmage last
night will keep him out of it. This
accident comes as the latest blow
to Franklin and Marshall's football
enthusiasts. Marshall was rapidly
rounding into shape and had skirted
the ends several times for big gains
against the scrubs before he met
with the accident. His absence from
the "Varsity comes as a 'big disap
pointment to the coach and makes
the fifth seriously Injured player to
date. "Ed" Mellinger will also be

open playing, which should make
easy picking for the alert F. and M.
defense. Coach Dickson expects to
score by playing straight football, as
his team has proved their superiority
In that style over every opponent this
Interest among the players has
taken a Jump lately and three or four
teams are out every night. Manager
Schaffner yesterday received a good
offer to take the Franklin and Mar

Holds Remarkable Record at
the Traps; Is Well
Known Here
There are hundreds of trapshoot
ers In this good old U. S. A. who
would cough up their last nickel and
a few other things if they could
break 96 targets in 100 Just once.
That to them would be a wonderful
feat. It is no small achievement.
For every shooter who averages
better than 96 per cent., there are
thousands who average below that
mark —yet we have with us a shooter
who would feel sadly out of form
and place If he didn't better 96, not
only one day, but every day and over
a term of years.
That Individual is Charles G.
Spencer, of St. Louis, Mo. He Is well
known to Harrisburgers, and was
here recently with the Winchester
team. With a trapgun, Spencer is
Just as good as they come. If fig
ures do not lie, he is the best. His
record is a most remarkable one.
Beginning In 1909 as a professional
shooter, his poorest year was 1918,
when he averaged 96 per cent, on
something in the neighborhood of
6,500 targets. That was poor for
Spencer. That would have been ex
tremely high for thousands. In
other years Spencer was above 96
per cent, and twice he averaged 97
per cent,, and for the ten years he
compiled a grand average of .9677.
Leads Professionals
Twice he lead the professionals of
the country in the averages in 1909
and 1915. He has always been
chosen for the AU-American team
of professionals, always being in the
first ten. Here is his average for
ten years, which gives one of the
best ideas of his ability;
1909 9720
1910 9680
1911 9666
1912 9605
1913 9681
1914 9623
1915 9750
1916 9666
1917 9692
1918 9600
In 1906 Spencer won the Southern
Handicap as an amateur with 98
breaks in 100 targets from 20 yards.
The average man may not realize
how difficult a feat this is, but every
one who shoots at the traps will
know. In 1909 he compiled a run
of 565 straight breaks from 16 yards
—a world's record. In 1912 he
broke 312 straight targets, the long
est run of that year. In 1909 he was
the highest average professional
with a mark of .972 0. He repeated
in 1915 with .9750. Spencer won the
professional championship at single
targets in 1910 with 190 breaks out
of 200 targets, and In 1915 and 1916
he had high average on doubles tar
gets with 82 per cent, in 1915, and
90 in 1916. In* 1917 Spencer held
the Hazard Trophy, emblematic of
the world's doubles target cham

Most of the equipment has been
received and distributed to the boys.
Although the team has been very
much handicapped by this lack they
have worked hard and will give Pal
myra a hard fight. The inclement
weather this week prevented scrim
mage practice and practically the
only work done this week was sig

McLinn, left end; Heagy, left
tackle; Jones, left guard; Bihl, cen
ter; Cassell, right guard; Selser,

Baltimore Polytechnic Is
Here For Game With Tech
Twenty members of the Baltimore
Polytechnic Institute football team
arrived in this city this morning
chockful of confidence as to the
outcome of the game with Tech on
the Island this afternoon. The clear
weather brought one of the largest
crowds of the season to the Island,
hopeful that the Monumental City
eleven would give Tech a battle.
Maroon cheer leaders and the band
were also on hand.
At 1.45 Captain Matter's reserves
lined up against the East End* Ju
niors. At 3 o'clock the big game
started with Butler and Moffatt as
referee and umpire. C. W. Miller
was head linesman.
Already there is talk of cham
pionship teams throughout the couh
try, and Tech stands ready to meet
any and all of them for the pre
mier honors. Tech's record to date
is oven better than last season. To
day Tech started Its strongest line
up, but once the game is won. Coach
Smith will not take any chances with
injuries to his players, because of
the game at Mercersburg next Sat

Section 984 effected a permanent

The gymnasium is nearly finished,
and the classes in physical culture
are meeting regularly in this room.
The teachers of these courses are
Miss Irene Burns in charge of the
girls' classes and Eugene Miller in
charge of the boys' work. The au
thorities hope to divide the gym by
a large canvas curtain hung in such
manner that it can be dropped to the
floor and thus offer space for both
boys and girls at the same time and
yet not offer an obstruction when it
is lifted to the ceiling. In the mean
time Mr. Miller is taking the boys
out into the open air to exercise'when
the weather is favorable thus giving
Miss Burns the use of the gymna
sium. When the weather is unfavor
able Miss Burns uses the gymnasium
for class work one half of the period
and Mr. Miller during the other half
of the period drilling the boys.
The gymnasium is large, and is
said by competent Judges to be the
best in the city. The gallery and
floor will offer space to seat four or
five hundred spectators and yet give
plenty of room for basket ball and
other performances. Under the gal
lery ample room is provided for stor
ing apparatus. The apparatus is be
ing installed. Adjoining the gym on
either side shower baths equipped
with hot and cold water, have been
provided. Offices are also provided
for both instructors. One of the best
features of this gymnasium is that it
can be used without opening any oth
er part of the building and will not
interfere in any way with the rest
of the building when it is i n use.
The students of 785 held an election
the past week. The officers elected
to serve the class are: President,

Billy Angelo Floors Allen
town Boy; Slight Concus
sion of Brain Results
Mill-Angelo, of York, in the third
round of a scheduled ten-round bout
with Billy Logan, of Allentown, last
night, at Steelton, gave the latter
a wallop on the jaw that came
nearly putting Frank Bear's boy to
sleep for all time to come. Logan
fell backward striking the back of
his head. He went Into convulsions
soon after the referee, Johnny Gill,
had counted him out. It was a tech
nical knockout.
Logan was badly injured and while
he was reported to" be all right to
day, doctors who worked him
for nearly an hour are of the opin
ion that It will be some time before
he is in form for real fighting, claim
ing that a blow on the head might
bring back a concussion of the brain.
Good Fight
The battle looked good to the
fans. Both boys were doing their
best to bring about a knockout. An
gelo had a shade the best of the
Allentown lad. Logan started the
third round with some hard blows.
The lighters clinched several times
and Referee Goll had just parted
them when Angelo left go his right
and hit Logan's jaw.
A good six-round battle was be
tween Rube Bennett, a Harrisburg
boy who looks like a comer, and
Bearcat Raymond, of Allentown,
known as Jack Cleaver some times.
Bennett did most of the fighting,
although Raymond got in some hard
blows. Raymond had the advantage
of Bennett in being short and has
a hide that stood Bennett's blows
like a piece of boiler plate.
Harrisburg*s representative was
iff good trim and but for Raymond's
clinching would have had his oppon
ent in bad shape early in the fight.
In the second round Bennett forced
Raymond to his knees as the bell
rang, ending the period. The third
was considered a draw, both fighters
taking the initiative, although Ray
mond clinched a good bit. Bennett
did all the leading in the fourth,
landing several good blows and do
ing considerable infighting with his
Hard Blows on Jaw
The blows that counted on Ray
mond were mostly to the jaw and
neck. He had a crouching attitude
which made it difficult for the Har
risburg boy tp get to him. However,
it was a good battle and the fans
were pleased.
One big farce, but amusing to the
spectators was the opening bout be
tween Red Singer, of Dauphin and
Young Piatt. The latter went out in
the third. Neither boy had any
knowledge of the fighting game and
their blows were harmless. Piatt's
knockout was due more to exhaus
tion. Piatt was a substitute for
Palmer who failed to appear.
The battle between Black Gunboat
Smith and Jim Duncan, of Middle
town did not materialize. Manager
Joe Barrett said he had informa
tion that Smith was told to stay
away after asking ten dollars ad
ditional for a fight, which Barrett
agreed to. The chances are that
there would not have been any fight
had Smith been on hand as Man
ager Barrett said Duncan was suf
fering from an attack of "Ginism."
The next show at Steelton will be
on October 27. Last night's crowd
was small, resulting in a financial
loss to Manager Barrett
Campaign Against
the Cigaret Next,
Says Dr. Wilson
By Associated Press
Cincinnati, Ohio, Oct 18.—Dr.
Clarence True Wilson, temperance
secretary of the Methodist Episco
pal Church, told the international
convention of Disciples of Christ
yesterday that "the cigaret must go"
as one of the "next moves of the
reformers," which was his subject.
Others given are Sabbath observ
ance, and world prohibition. Dr.
Arthur Holmes, president of Drake
University, Des Moines, lowa, said
college degrees are worth $40,000 at
five per cent, every ypar, and high
school diplomas are valued at $lB,-
500 at the same ratio. The preach
er's salary Is below the average
because ministers are not paid ac
cording to their earning power, Dr.
Holmes explained. When the church
pays more, the ministry will be more
attractive, and the present dearth
of preachers will be more nearly
met, he stated.

Winter Game Will Be Fight
tQ Oust Johnson and
fcew York, Oct. 18.-rAll fronts in
the drive for the scalp of Ban John
son, American League head, are re
ported quiet.
The force of Colonels Ruppert and
Huston and their aides, Owners
Comiskey and Fraxee, are marking
time while Justice Wagner, of the
supreme court, is preparing a deci
sion In the Mays injunction case.
Meanwhile, a score or more of
Yankee players have palms itching
for tfyeir share of third place money
which has been held up by the pro
test of the Tiger boss, Frank Nevin.
While Jhe big guns in the fight
have been silent for some time, the
Yankees have been undergoing a ha
rassing fire from the Detroit fort.
Navin has been proving himself a
thorn in the side of the two cdlonels.
First he protested a double-header
played on the Polo grounds in Sep
tember. Then, when Miller Hug
gins and his black hosed tribe were
looking through catalogs for places
to invest their third place earnings,
Navin came along and said they
were not entitled to It, as every
game Carl Mays won was illegal.
Prexy Johnson can't decide the Is
sue until the court acts on the In
junction suit.
Herrmann Is Soaring
Garry Herrmann is so high in the
clouds of baseball bliss over his
world's champion Reds that he seems
to have forgotten the request that
the anti-Johnson barons made for
his resignation as chairman of the
national commission.
Presidents Baker and Veeck, and
Colonel Ruppert, who are the only
members of the committee to name
a new member of the committee
since Navin resigned, Bay they
haven't forgotten the ultimatum,
and that if the Red boss does not
step down gracefully they will eject
him this winter. The National
League, they 1 assert, is well lined up
against Herrmann and has the sup
port of Boss John Heydler. Five
clubowners of the American circuit,
however, are with Herrmann, be
cause he is the "buddy" of Johnson.
When the issue finally comes to a
showdown, as it will this winter, it
will bring an interesting disclosure
of the strength in the major league
circuits and, in addition, it will pro
vide plenty of fuel to keep the win
ter fires burning in the hot stove

Manifesto to Serbs
By Associated Press
Flume, Thursday, Oct. 18. —Ga-
brlele D'Annunzio has issued a man
ifesto to the Serbians, expressing
the need of recognition by the Serbs
of a community of Interest between
Italy and the Serbs. It says:
"Serbs! There exist no obstacles
to a harmonious peace. Flume
wishes to be Italian.
"Freedom of commerce In the
Adriatic will not be prohibited to

Now they seek war against Italy by
collecting forces In the neighbor

the citizens of which, with volun

Governor and Attorney Gen
eral Make Notable Speeches
Before Physicians
Addresses made last night before
the Medical Club of Philadelphia by
Governor William C. Sproul and At
torney General William I. Schaffer
have attracted wide attention because
of the solemnity with which the gov
ernor spoke of the unrest problem.
The Governor said in part:
"The trouble has been that we are
too easy going and too prone to let
others do it. The country needs us
new and i the physician can play a
big part.' It is up to us and particu
larly to you to awaken the people
to a realization of the blessings they
have enjoyed. We cannot afford to
muddle along with the old thought
that America always comes out all
right. We must not wait until it is
too late. The diagnosis is easy. The
ailment is here so let us begin the
treatment while the country is sus
ceptible und not wait until the case
is a hopeless one. The State is well
able to take care of the immediate
violent symptoms. We are better
prepared than you realize but there
are more opportunities to be ready
here than elsewhere because here we
have a great vital public sentiment.
"I have made it my business to go
about the State during the last year
because I felt it was my duty to get
in toucli with real conditions. I
knew the acid test was coming after
the war when we had to sit down
bind up the wounds and count the
"The test is coming. The Institu
tions here are poor and flimsy indeed,
if we can't stand up and toe the mark
and protect all that we hold so dear
and provide for the perpetuity of the
The Governor declared that the
physicians should enlist themselves in
the battle to preserve the country's
institutions and he said they are well
able to perform this service because
they are of the conservative type. He
then declared that during the re
mainder of his administration ho will

and in this crusade also, he said, he
