traok of t,R' brilliant plays made by the
various players, for sometimes the
playing was so fast that even the um
pires could not tell what the players
were trying to do.
The Eagles were very naturally the
best ball players, as they could soar
into the air and catch the flies (and
other Insects). Tho way Ed Amack
and Ren Muntz flew around the bases
was one of the features of the game.
Amack missed several chances in left
field by lying down on the straw stack
and going to sleep.
Rill Tabor played a star game in
center field, he having managed to
dodge all the balls that came his way.
Paul Pope distinguished himself by
making the only two lly catches that
were made. He also hit the ball once
in a while, though in this he was no
different from the rest of the ball play
ers with the exception of John Havel,
who was not able to solve the slants
. and benders of tho speedy pitchers
1 whom he was called upon to face.
During the first two hours of the
game the playing was fast and furious,
but for the next two hours and a half
things rather dragged, as the boys
were getting tired. Somewhere along
about the -third hour of play Darrel
Rurden got a nice hit, but he had to
stop to rest lie: ween first and second,

County Clerk Lee De Tour was one
of the best players among the Eagles.
Whenever he got an opportunity to get
the ball in his talons ho soared around
until he found one of thebravoKnlghts
trying to make a score, when ho would
put him out. '
One of tho most thrilling plays came
in the second hour of the game when
Eagle Amack was making a short fly
to first base. Something got tho mat-

to the ground. Hi1 managed to repair'
the damage, however, before the
