other members of the association.
- Heretofore only schools which were

The official year of the association
was changed from September 1 to July
1. to extend from July 1 of one year to
July 1 of the succeeding year. It was
also decided that schools already mem-
bers of this body should pay an addi
tional dollar, which will entitle them to
membership until July 1. 1915. Schools
just entering will be forced to pay an
annual fee of two dollars.
Following this meeting the officers
for the association were elected for the
coming year, to take office on July 1,

the association yesterday are: Allen
town High,. Tarentum, Williamsport,

the roll of the association to fifty-two

preventing them from taking any offi
cial action at this n.eeting.
Officials representing Central High,
Philadelphia; Peabody High, Pitts

tention of joining the association in
the near future, the amendments to the
laws making these additions possible.
With these schools entered, according
to the statement of Charles 8. Davis, of
Steelton, retiring chairman of the
board of control, all the other impor
tant schools of these cities will follow.
WHITE GOT THE MONEY
Chicago Lad Foueht for Guarantee of
New York, Dec. 31.—The gross re
ceipts of Tuesday night's ten-round
bout between Charley White, of Chi
cago. and Joe Shugrue totaJed $14,-
Of this amount White re-eived a flat
guarantee of $3,.>00, which was the
sum his manager. Nate Lewis, demand
ed from Jimmy Jchnston in Chicago be
fore he would sign up for the battle.
Shugrue's end amounted to $2,684.
Shugrue worked on a guarantee of $2,
500. with an option of accepting 20
per cent, of the receipts after the state
had deducted its 5 per cent. The per
centage, therefore, gave Hhugrue $lB4
more than his guarantee.
New York, Dec. 31.—"Chick" Gan
dil, the first baseman of the Washing
ton Club, has severely wrenched his
right arm. and it is feared that he may
not be able to play up to his usual high
stan iard next season. Gandil always
has had trouble in getting his throwing
arm into shape in the spring. A few
days ago Gandil was driving his auto
mobile, and, in order to avoid a col
lision, he made a quick turn of the
wheel, badly wrenching bis right arm
in the operation. Several ligaments
were torn, and the arm is in bad shape.
GaniMl will go to Bonesetter Reese in
Youngstown, 0., for treatment.
