AdverusemeaL , YULETIDE CHEER FOR FOREIGN WOMEN Students of the School in English For Immigrants Have A Christmas Party in the North End Mrs Grace H. Bagley (Center Figure of the Three Women at the Right), Chairman of the Committee. CHRISTMAS PARTY AT THE CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS SCHOOL, NORTH BENNET ST, FOR STUDENTS OF THE SCHOOL IN ENGLISH FOR FOREIGN WOMEN. The first Christmas celebration for the students of the English School for Immigrant Women was' held yesterday afternoon at the Christopher Columbus Schoolhouse, North Bennet st. when about 50 guests, including the children of the immigrant students, enjoyed a BOSTON GETS -RELIEF ON GOAL Continued From the First Page. vailing fog undoubtedly would delay the tugs and barges to such an extent that they would not arrive in Boston until tomorrow at the earliest. Word was also received yesterday that the steamers and barges which have been tied up at Hampton Roads had started for Boston. These vessels were delayed first by Government vessels having the preference at loading berths, and then by the coal freezing In the cars. Altogether, it is figured that nearly 80,000 tons of coal are on the way to Boston and are due here by Monday. Notwithstanding the temporary relief from the famine and it Is admittedly only temporary the Massachusetts Fuel Administration will exercise Its full authority to enforce the economical operation of all steam plants which it finds are using fuel in a wasteful manner. The Administration, yesterday, sent to nearly 10,000 owners or managers of factories and office buildings notices to this effect. Incidentally, it is the first time that Administrator Ptorrow has directly promised that the drastic authority of his office will be used where inefficient use of coal is Indicated. The notice is accompanied by a form to be filled out by the engineer or owner and Is so arranged that a committee of experts can tell at oncu whether the plant Is being improperly run. In the event that waste is indicated in the use of coal it is within the power of the Fuel Administrator to cut off the supply for the user. This authority will not be exercised until all other reasonable means are exhausted. The Administration is prepared to send experts to plants, which are wasting coal, and will ' i.. 4 imv th O t endeavor to remedy the situation that way. Gov McCall Takes a Hand That drastic steps will be taken to conserve the coal supply of New England is evidenced by the determined manner in which Mr Storrow and the various New England Governors, including Gov McCall, have labored for reYhile reported as being confident that there will be a steady improvement in coal conditions in New England from now on. Gov McCall declared in M ash-ington yesterday that he finds It impossible to overlook past mistakes which have seriously affected the New England States. , . .. . "Apparently some one forgot that there were people at home as well as abroad. he said, questioning the logic of commandeering of locomotive works for the manufacture of railroad engines tor Russia, France and other countries. He criticised the extravagant use o. priority orders for war freights, and spared no words in taking Sec of the Navy Daniels to task. The Navy, he said, had done much Injury to the transportation of coal In taking the tugs used for towing. "Lightless Nights Violations Apropos of the "Hghtless night order L. D. Gibbs yesterday furnished the Fuel Administrator with the names of those concerns wl.c disregarded the order. "In many Instances. said Mr Gibbs, "it was honest forgetfulness. but In others it was simply a hoggish desire to grab all the light possible for the Christmas trade. It became known yesterday, too, that many street gas lamps in certain sections of the city, notably Brighton, have been burning night and day since the lamplighters went on strike a couple of weeks ago. The Boston Gas Company last night stated that it was necessary to keep the lights burning because it was impossible to get men to extinguish and light them each day. PUBLIC SERVICE BOARD TAKES UP PROPOSED CUT BY THE L" The Public Service , Commission, through its chairman, Frederick J. Macleod, yesterday afternoon addressed a letter to Edward Dana,' manager of surface- transportation of the Boston musical entertainment, carol singing and games. Miss Marie Sapato sang selections from Italian operas, and Mrs Marie Ci-ciato sang Italian folk songs. Mrs Grace H Bagley, chairman of the Americanization committee for war serv ice. the hostess, made an address in Italian, complimenting the women on Elevated, regarding? the proposed reduction in service. Earlier in the day Mr Dana and If. C. Potter, representing the company, appeared at the office of the commission and disclaimed any intention of disregarding the powers of the commission. In his letter Chairman Macleod says: In the present instance the commission recognizes the seriousness of the coal situation in New England, and appreciates that the company has been guided in the action which it proposes to take with respect to service by the advice and recommendations of the State and National fuel administrators, The commission, however, cannot undertake, on short notice and in advance of an opportunity. o hear interested parties, to give or withhold approval to the specinc changes which are outlined in your letter. "It must reserve the right, according to its usual practice, to entertain complaints after the changes are made, and to take such action as may seem justified. in the event of such complaints, after full consideration and public hearings. "It should further be said that the law requires seven days notice to the public before any changes may take eftect, and no provision is made in the statute tor any temporary or permanent suspension of its operation to meet erntrgency conditions. No penalty is attached, however, and it may fairly be assumed that no court would require strict compliance with its provisions if a public exigency should render such compliance inconsistent with the public welfare. The company must, however, act upon its own responsibility and be guided in this matter by the advice of the Fuel Administrators, who have full knowledge of the tuel situation and are in a better position to give such advice than this commission could be. "It has been pointed out that certain of the changes contemplated relate to service now required on certain lines under past orders of the commission. These orders, however, were made at tunes when conditions were normal and it has seemed to the commission that so far as the present emergency is concerned these lines should stand on the same basis as others. For this reason the commission has temporarily suspended the provisions of these orders, upon the understanding that any complaints as to changes m service upon these lines may hereafter be considered without prejudice in the same way as any complaints which may be filed m regard to changes in service on other lines affected. NO COAL FOR NONESSENTIAL INDUSTRIES IN NEW YORK NEW YORK, Dec 21 Upon statements by local fuel authorities that New York city's reserve coal supply Is rapidly vanishing because the amount daily consumed greatly exceeds that brought from the mines, II. A. Garfield, Federal Fuel Administrator, today gave authority for discrimination between industries and against all industries in favor of domestic users in the distribution of coal here. While there are plenty of vessels available to bring coal from railroad terminals in New Jersey, according to Reeve Schley, city fuel administrator, a shortage of cars makes it impossible to replenish the supply in proportion to its consumption. Under direction of Fuel Administrator Wiggin for the State of New' York, a committee will be formed, it was said ! today, to distinguish between essential and "nonessential industries. If a serious shortage seems imminent it H planned to shut off coal from industries classed as "nonessential." ASKS MICHIGAN PLANTS TO SUSPEND, COAL IS SO SCARCE WASHINGTON, Dec 21 Fuel supplies in Michigan have reached such a low ebb that Administrator W. K. Prudden tonight asked manufacturers in that State to suspend operations in industrial plants from midnight tomorrow until midnight Dec 29. The only exceptions are factories making war munitions needed for prompt shipment. Mr rrudden's request was contained in a telegram sent after & conference here with Fuel Administrator Garfield. HaverhjII Coal Saving Move HAVERHILL. Dec 21 It was announced today that the Christmas vacation of the schools this year wilt be two ,$f the progress they had made in the study of English during their term at school. Then each individual mother and chld was tailed up to receive a Christmas gift. Mrs Bagley was assisted by Miss Htella W. Jones. Miss M. Tierney made a brief address on the work of the Immigrants School. Refreshments were served and folk dancing enjoyed. weeks instead of one. This la owing to the shortage of'coal.' POLICE TO AID IN CARRYING .LIGHTLESS NIGHT ORDERS The police were last night instructed in a general order to assist in every way so far as may be practicable in securing in Boston a full observance of the order of the United States Fuel Administration Which is designed to prevent the unnecessary use of electric current and thus reduce the quantity of coal required by companies furnishing it. Although the order only applies to Thursday and Sunday nights, and the police will not have the power to prosecute, they will aid in urging the owners of buildings to cooperate to make the request a success. Should they learn on further observation that the conditions have not been remedied they will report the facts and the reports will be forwarded from headquarters to the office of the Fuel Administrator. CAMP DEVENS-LOWELL EXTRA TRAINS SUSPENDED LOWELL, Dec 21 Extra trains between Lowell and Camp Devens will be suspended tomorrow and scarcity of coal is given as the reason. To save coal the evening sessions of Textile School will be suspended until Jan 2. Postpones Dinner to Soldiers Because of orders from Washington to abandon special transportation plans owing to the coat sho'tage, the Boston City Club last night announced intli finite postponement of a dinner it was to give tonight to 250 colliers from Camp Devens. THREE AUTO THIEVES SENTENCED TO JAIL PROVIDENCE. Dec 21 Members of the so-called Cram gang of automobile thieves, who, it is alleged, operated in and about Providence selling stolen machines in Boston, were before the Superior Court here today. Romeo and Ernest Imondi were sentenced to six months lor the thett from Thomas A. Boyle of a machine, which they drove into Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Cram, who was in the automobile business in Boston, is serving live years at Cranston. JAMES J, RYAN OF BOSTON HELD ON MURDER CHARGE PROVIDENCE. Dec 21 -James J. Ryan of Boston, proprietor of a private detective agency, pleaded not guilty to an indictment for murder and was committed without bail today. Charles A. Walsh, his counsel, obtained permission to withdraw the plea of not guilty within 10 days and file a special plea if he sees fit. The indictment charges that Ryan shot and mortally wounded Edward Dolan of Lawrence. Mass, at Uie Mos-wansicut Inn in Scituate Sept 17. Dolan died the following morning at the Pa-rade-st Hospital in this city. Ryan was not released on bonds. ' Since the tragedy Ryan's wife and children have returned to her parents' home in Boston to live. $2500 FIRE IN BOILER- HOUSE OF LYNN PLANT LYNN, Dec 21 Fue was discovered just before midnight in the two-story frame boiler house of the plant of the Progressive Dyeing and Cleansing Coi-ranv. 624 Summer st, and caused a loss of $2500. Apprehension was felt for me mam structure in which there was considerable gasoline. A quantity or srocs and articles belonging to customers were consumed., LIVE TIPS AND By SPORTSMAN "j Horace Ridley may have gathered together a team of old-timers to represent the B. A. A. on the alleys this Winter, but they still can bowl some and then some. Ned Foster, who rolled 608 on the Cochato Club alleys Thursday night, is an old Allston Club roller, and Eller-ton James, who had the top score of 638, is a veteran of the early 90s. It is an old-timers team to a man. Bowling is booming at the Unicorn club this off-season. I hear there are 25 teams in the house,tournament. Maj Frank II. Bngga attempt to have the A. A. U. change the hights of hurdles in the 220 and 440-yard events should be successful in the end. If it is proper to have the hurdles In a 229-yard race lower than in the 120-yard event, it certainly Is most reasonable to grade down the hlght in a quarter-mile race over the sticks. Now Lhe quarter-mile hurdler is called upon to go over barriers three feet high, while 2 feet 6 Inches is the hight prescribed in the furlong race. The adoption of Maj Briggs suggestion will make a better and more popular race, with more competition. Oscar Happy Felsch, Worlds .Series hero and White Sox centerflelder, set a new record for the American 'League in accepted chances in fielding this last season. Jimmy Slagle, when he was with Washington, set the mark at 421. Then In 1914 Tris Speaker boosted the recoid to 455, and now Happy has set it at 464. In these days, when we hear of college teams to a man enlisting for war service, It is a pleasure to learn of sporting organizations outside of the colleges doing the same thing. The whole basket-ball squad of the Illinois A. C National champions has disbanded and gone to the colors. Hold your horses! These ring fighters have to do Just sd much talking and get their fill of publicity before they come down to business. STRANGLER LEWIS VICTOR OVER GREEK Special Dispatch to the Globe NEW YORK. Dec 21 Strangler Lewis won a match under unusual conditions In the wrestling tournament tonight. Because of the hue and cry against the headlock, Lewis again agreed to bar this numbing grip, but allowed his opponent. Demetrius Tofa-los, the Greek champion, to use it. Lewis was always master. For a few minutes Tofalos managed to keep Lewis off, and once he got the headlock, which the Strangler broke. Lewis won with a half-Nelson and crotch in 8m 23s. Lewis will be put to the test tomorrow night, when he once more meets Zbyszko To a finish. This will be the real decisive match of the tournament. Zbyszko needed Just 15 seconds tonight to throw Fred Pilakoff of Finland. The quick fall was scored with a body scissors and wrist lock. Other results were: Harry Stevens of England threw Joe Samson of America in 8m 4s with head scissors and crotch hold. Ivan Linow, Russia, defeated George Manich, Serbia, in 21m 25s with head scissors and wrist lock. Joe Rogers. New York, threw Sula Hevonpaa. Finland, in 14m 10s with a tide roll and double arm lock. Hr B. F. Roller, Seattle, defeated John Ilaracle. Wilmington, Del. In 13m 12s with a half nelson and crotch hold. GOLF ASSOCIATION TO OMIT DINNER AS A WAR MEASURE When the Massachusetts Gof Association has its annual meeting, Jan 18, at 5 oclock at the Exchange Club the dinner which has always followed the business session will be omitted on account of the war. There will he no change in the personnel of the officers lor 1918 as the nominating committee will present the names of those who served this year. They follow: Henry H. Wilder of the Country Club, president: Paul R. Ulav, Merrlmac Valley, vice president; J. B. Russell Jr. Dedham Iolo and Country Club, treasurer: Barton K. Stephenson, Winchester, secretary, and A. D. Locke, Brae-Burn; Dr A. J. A. Hamilton, Bel-ment Spring. 5. B. Reed, Wollaston; H. J. Nichols, Albemarle, and H. C. Keith of Brockton as the other members of the executive committee. The chances are that at the business meeting a general discussion of tournament play for the season of 191$ will have the attention of the delegates present. Whether the State open or amateur championshipj will take place is questionable. It is quite likely that the matter of championships and team matches, both inter-Stste and Lesley Cup. will be left in the hands of the executive committee. COMISKEY GIVES $1000 TO ' WAR CAMP FUND OF K. OF C. CHICAGO, Decjl Charles A. Ccmiskey, owner of the champion Chicago Americans, who has made contributions totaling $17,600 to the Red Cross, today gave $1000 to the War Camp Fund of the Knights of Columbus. , DAVIN DOWNS 25 CHECKER EXPERTS IN CHELSEA MATCH James Davin, a member of the Wells Memorial Checker Club, last night played simultaneously at 25 boards at the Chelsea Y. M. C. A. and won all his games. Davin is an entry for the Melvin Brown tourney, which begins Jan I at the Wells Memorial Club. Cochran Beats Monalngstar DETROIT. Dec 21 Welker Cochran of Chicago tonight won an 1800-point 18.2 balk-line billiard match from Ora Morn-ingstar, 1SOO to 1767. after Morningstar had made an unsuccessful effort to come from behind in the final block. J Herbert Hunter, the old Melrose High athlete, once with the New York Giants and last year with the San Francisco club of the Pacific Coast League, has been active in raising funds for the Red Cross at Atlantic Highlands. N J. this Fall artd Winter. He organized the Atlantic Highlands Collegians to play football with service teams and the receipts (were turned over to the Red Cross. Among the Harvard seniors chosen for the third officers' training camp Is Leeds A. Wheeler, who won the Harvard middle-weight boxing championship last Winter. Wheeler was coached bv Henry Allen In boxing and made a fine showing. Real needs of baseball have put the soft pedal on the usual Stove League stuff about changes In the rules to benefit the game. It Is a relief not to have read the host of quack remedies offered. Yale's holiday basket-ball tour appears to be formal and normal. Just a In other jears. If the Yale Bowl were available for the proposed Red Cross bout between Jess Willard and Fred Fulton, all world'3 attendance records would probably go by the board. At an International football match between England end Scotland at Hampden Park on March 23. 1912. there were 127,307 spectators. If the tiers of the Yale Bowl will reat about 80,000, what would be the to-tul eapaclty of this great amphitheater with the floor of the Bowl filled with seats? Piobably in excess of England's record football attendance. Barney Dreyfus Is quoted as saying that be was offered $30,000 for a certain Pirate, and rejected the proposition. Barney must have been harking back to the days when he may ihave had some such offer for Honus Wagner. SUBURBAN LEAGUERS SCATTER CANDLE PINS Suburban League rollers after having been l,n the depths for some time, came up for fair Ust night and the results were in contrast to those of late. Revere had a spell and came through for 1628, while Bazaar of Cambridge lell just short of 16(8). Millar of Revere had pne of his In's and he led the league with 361. Henderson of Everett, after a slow start, registered a set of 338, while Ioehler of Revere hit 351 and Burns of Bazaar had 349. Bowlers must have been scarce at the Clelsea Square alleys, for Chelsea and Square teams rolled but four men each. Revere won three points from New Revere, Bazaar shut out Wlnthrop, Everett and Malden broke even, Glendale scored three points on Melrose and Chelsea got three from Square. The scores.
