Playing a listless game Saturday,
May 16th against Malaschock
Jewelry Girls, the Hottentots went
down to defeat Dor the second time
this season at the hands of the Jew
elry Girls. Donaldson pitched one
of the poorest games of the season
and could not baffle the girls. Com
plete with five walks and 4 errors
byGennison, the Malashock Girls
coasted to a 6-3 win.
The Hot Lento ts came back strong
Sunday with Speed Lindsey and I.
Murrell, last years battery for the
Johnson Girls, pitching and catch
ing first game of the season, are
due much credit in holding Metz
Girls (city champions) in check
Murrell was the batting star with
a long homer in left field and a
Lyles, Hottentot’s star first base
man, pulled a boner which allowed
the Metz Girls to win.
Mi', and Mrs. Singer, of the Fon
tenelle Browing Co-, who saw the
Hottentots for the first time were
very much pleased with the show
ing of the team, even in defeat.
Mr. Herbert Peak, states star color
ed soft ball pitcher, is working
hard each day with the Hottentots
at 20th and Lake streets.
The management and the team
wish to thank Mr. Martin Thomas
for the use of the field at 20th and
Metz-Rabes Girls vs H. H- S
Soft ball fans will be given a
real treat on Saturday, May 21st
at 6 p. m. at 21st and Burdette Sts.,
with the most novel game of the
season. The Hotentots will use
Wade and Berring to form a bat
tery which with players like
Wright, ss; Gennison, 3b; Lyles 2b;
and Lindsey lb; and Bolden, Smith,
Lee, and Stewart in the outfield,
the H. H- S. boys will be easy.
■Capt. Equator Williams, due to
illness, has been out of the lineup.
Miss Williams is a spark plug of
the best girls infield in Nebraska
and is greatly missed.
We are all pulling for Miss Wil
liams spedy recovery that she may
be in her old position on May 30th.
Down the Fairway
With the Cornhuskers
The season is late in beg'nnin'’’
because the weather hr1?* not been
favorable but we will start
that old ball out real soon. Golf is
a very sporty game, if you once
begin playing you’ll never stop.
The more you play the more you
will like it. Golf is a great game
for exercise. It is a game that will
make yon reduce. It gives you plen
ty of vigor, vim and vitality. It ex
ercises every muscle in the body,
■when yon follow through with a
perfect swing. Thera are just as
many women golfers as there are
men. More and more women are
beginning to play golf every day.
Women are just beginning to real
ise what a great game golf is. Ev
ery woman who can afford the time
should take uip golf. It isn’t an ex
pensivq game. Some people say
golf is a rich man’s game. It is not.
It is a poor man’s game as well as
a rich man’s game. The golf associ
ation has arranged it so that every
one can play golf at a reasonable
rate, by giving municipal courses
to play on. Come on you, and you,
get interested in golf and learn to
play. Down the Fairway with the
Gornhuakers, Fore; there she goes.
