HAS FINE BALL TEA
Series of Games Played With Charl
ton Showed up Well for
Clinton, April, 10.?The local bo
ball fans are enthusiastic over
team the college lias out this year,
lias played four games so far t
season, all with Charleston colic
winning three of them. It is a mat
of common belief that they lost
second game In Charleston becai
they spent the morning on the wa
and in the surf and were not In pi
sical condition to play in the aft
noon. Hut he would be a poor exci
for a man who would say that a sii
of Forts Sumter and Moultrle ant
battle with the surf are not chea
bought with one baseball game.
While tl??; Presbyterians clearly o
Classed their visitors they gave a v<
pretty exhibition of bas> ball on i
home diamond Friday as ' Saturd
especially Saturday when Charlesi
pitched Levi, Their team work, tb
earnestness and coolness, are being
vorably commented on.
These have heretofore been the w<
points of the Presbyterian team.
Fuller, Clinton has a batsman wo
counting on. WInn is considered <
of the best college catchers in i
state. But there is not a weak man
the line-up apparently. They go
against Frskine next Friday.
