The railroaders played a better gam«, however, than they have put up for some time, and with more practice expect to finally get going. Pour defeats now stand against the Baltimore Ohio and it will take hard playing to overcome this handicap. M the end of the first half the railroaders were only two points behind, but in the second period the Elites increased the lead. One disadvantage the clerks have is missing the tipoff, as there is not a good center on the team. Manager Ash espects to sign a big man up for that place and thon he promises different results.

Don't stay stuffed-up with a cold or nasty catarrah.--a iv. From. The Bache Review. Nobody doubts that we havo men brainy enough and expert enough to organize effectively the tremendous resources of this country so that every ounce of our enormous aggregate power shall do its full part in. helping to win the war. Have we organized effectively on tnese lines? Nohody believes that we have. * Every true American wants Jt done and wants it done quickly--only pro- Germans anc. pacifists are in fa~vor of obstruction and delay. How can it be done? America's practical part in the war thus far is a gigantic industrial proposition. For a leader L n national and international statesmanship, since- our break with Germany, the President has filled every requirement In these well organized; its operation has been paralyzed instead of being mobilized for the creation of thc utmost in results. And this is due to a failure to select a few men highly fitted to take responsibility and to achieve syucr- setic marvels. Instead We have lamentable evidence of wasted energies and wasted material, in transportation, in coal, in step I capacity, in labor, all working gradually to tho worst results instead of the best. In planning and engineering. In equipping a great army, in supplying enormous amounts of food, creating and shipping imnense stores of munitions and fleets of aeroplanes, and in driving shipbuilding to its utmost speed of output and of capacity, we need the highest type of business executives that the country can furnish. These men of thc largest experience in organizing and 3n executing, with full power to proceed under the President's direction, should he relied upon to place our great industrial machine on the same plane of thc highest capacity and efficiency which it has taken in peace times, now -n ', war times, when, we most need Its Irresistible power for winning 1 the war. The President has been unfair to hiirself, in that he has not availed himself of the close assistance of these powerful executives under his very eye and hand fiivinc; them power to execute promptly and effectively every mnve a^TP«t upnn hy wNe counsel In order to compel far-reaching results. Tacks : JHost Delicti Presenting a show that was away above the average professional one night musical farce, Connedlsvillo's amateur artists last night at the Arcade 1 rendered a pretty sketch entitled "French Before Breakfast."
