Allentown Finds That the Receipts Ta
ken in at Games in This City Are
Better Than in Other Tri-State
Allentown, l'a„ Jan. 2.—The cost of
ruuping a small town baseball team is
indicated in a statement, of receipts an I
expenses issued by the management of
the Allentown Tri-State elub for last
season. The total expenditures were
125,166.88. The receipts were
$25,165.80, but this includes the pro
coeds of a S9OO note which is still ow
ing, and which, outside of the $8 cred
it showing on the balance sheet, is the
deficit. At that, the duib did some
what better last season than the year
before, when the deficit was $l,lOO.
The receipts at gate and grand stnu.l
were approximately $14,000. The re
e.eipts on the ma.l were highest from
'Harris-burg, $1,251; the second high
est from Heading, ,$997, and the louesi
from York, $289. The best exhibition
game-was that with the Phillies, which
drew $302. The players' salaries aud
those of the employes amounted to
somewhat more than SIO,OOO, aud t'ue
guarantees paid to $6,426.
It is said the only other club in th-'
Tri-State that did better than Allen
town was v hich was helpe I
out by the sale of players.
All the directors have expressed a
willingness to continue during 1915,
and President Max S. Erdman, Dr. A.
H. Bailliet and George H. Hardner
have been chosen delegates to the
league meeting in Philadelphia.

about a flirtatious young bride, her un
necessarily jealous husband, an impres
sionable tenor and his shrew wife, a
number ot misguided friends who jump
at wrong conclusions and a lackadaisi

making mistakes. The lines are witty
