During the lirst half only two baskets were made on each side, and not until the second 'Period was well under way did the score begin to climb. Every basket counted last night, and the Maccabees were never beaten until the last whistle blew. Close guarding featured in the first halt and there was little shooting. The Maccabees got the lead but the Elks climbed slowly making five points on fouls before a field goal went through. Then with a field goal the score was tied at 7-7, acd when the half ended it was 9-8. The Elks took the sidebet placed between the managers of the two teams and the game which has been talked of Cor tho past week, attracted a good crowd. Bane, a member of the Uniontown Penns, was in the.Ok lineup last night. The game Tuesday will bi between Ihe Elite Club and the Baltimore Ohio clerks. The Elite lost to the Garage last week and a scrappy game is ' expected Tuesday as the loser goes ' into bottom place in the league standing.

Under easting.and prospective conditions no material quantity of potatoes can be exported or converted Into non-perishable products this sea- .-jon. The crop can not be curried over. It must be consumed or wasted. The food situation throughout the world demands that it be consumed effectively to relievo the existing strain on tb» supply of cereals. It is th one grcst food resource of the world upon which there is now danger of a. hsavy loss and the d"part- ment is of .he opinion that the situation desnards that farmers sell freely; that tii larger dealers move their stocks rapdly; and that the retailer content hinselt with the smallest possible marjin of profit, realizing that he Is now the most Important factor In speediig up potato consumption. jElks I Maccabees 'B. 0.
