Eighteen Athletes Will Be Entered in
Memorial Day Races—Steelton to
Have Full Team—Central to Send
but Three Men
Tech High is entering the annual
track and field meet held under the
auspices of the Heading High School
Athletic Association ■at Reading Mon
day with a determination to win. The
entrv list includes twelve schools many
of tiiem different from the ones which
Tech has encountered in meets this
spring, but that is believed to be a
small matter.
The Reading team had but four en
tries in the scholastic meet here Sat
urday afternoon, sending but enough
athletes to take home the shield won
by that team in past years. A full
entry list will be sent into the meet
there on Monday and Reading may
prove a dangerous rival to Tech.
The local champions will be repre
sented by between eighteen athletes.
All the men, who placed in the local
meet, will be sent with a possible ex
ception of Miller, winner of the ham
mer throw because no hammer thrown
will be included in the Reading meet.
Steelton will also have a full entrv
list. Houtz Piffenbach and Smeltzer.
point winners for Central High in the
local meet, will go to Reading.
This is the first time Central High
has entered this meet since 1910. when
trouble with the Reading management
caused them to withdraw from the
Olympic Champion May Lead Penn's
1916 Track Team
1 h.ladelphia. May 25. —Regardless
of what the showing is of the Univer
sity of Pennsylvania track team in the
coming intercollegiate®, the honor of
captaincy of next year's team is almost
certain to fall upon James E. (Tedl
Meredith, the sensational runner and
holder of the Olympic SSO-metres cham
Meredith is a Junior and appears to
be toe logical person for the position.
He is without doubt the most popular
athlete in college and, aside from this,
carries the admiration of every athlete
in the amateur »anks.
The speed demon is a graduate of
Mereersburg Academy, having entered
that school from Williamson Trades
A banquet will be held in honor of
the Penn track team Saturday evening
following the intercollegiate races, and
the election of captain will take plaee
at this festival. It .is doubtful if any
other track man will oppose Meredith.
Could Not Make the Time Limit at
Indianapolis. May 25.—Three cars
entered in the 500-mile automobile race I
to be held here Saturday withdrew yes
terday and it was said other withdraw-'
als are expected because of inability to
make the required speed of 80 miles an
hour. Yesterday was the last day for
the speed trials."
The three cars that withdrew were !
American make and their drivers were
to have been Pullen. Buckstell and Nik- 1
rent. It was explained that the three
drivers have been having engine trou- !
ble and could not get their mounts in |
Darius Resta made a lap yesterday at
the rate of 98.5 miles an hour. Cox
and Lecain also made better than the
required average.

guidance of Manager George T. Stall

Canadian Minister Expresses Thanks
Tor Soldiers' Baseball Paraphernalia
I Chicago. May 25.—The gift of base-
I balls, batf and other paraphernalia
[ from President Johnson and the clubs
of the American League to the Cana
dian soldiers fighting abroad will be
i assembled at Toronto and shipped to
i London, where General John Carson
propably will see to its transportation
i across the channel and distribution
I inning the soldiers. This was announ
| ced yesterday bv President Johnson,
. who said the first batch would be readv
in about ten days. Samuel Hughes,
j Canadian Minister of Militia, in a tele
gram received by President Johnson,
said: ,
''As Minister of Militia it gives me
great pleasure to accept and thank
your league for its gift. It will be
highly appreciated by our magnificent
boys, who are so nobly doing their
duty at the front, and make manv a
leisure hour pass pleasantly."'
New Boxing Law Expected to Stop
Stalling in Bouts
Albany. X. \., May 25.—The new
boxing law. it is expected, will result
in decisions being ordered for boxing
bouts. Under a ruling of the old Com- i
! mission no decisions were allowed. This,
men in pugilistic circles held, caused
many boxers to stall through the six or
ten rounds of their bouts. Decision, it
is claimed, will make the boys put up
first-class fighting exhibition's. Many
i complaints have been received of the
< practice of some boxers to earn their
money with the least possible effort,
and, therefore, it is expected that the
new Commission will make a ruling in
favor of decisions.
The new law supplants the present
three unprotected Commissioners with
a Commission of three members, who
will get salaries of $3,000 each. Mike
Donovan, iiooskvelt's old sparring part
ner, and John Farnev, of this city, are
active candidates for Boxing .Commis
