hands, feet and mouths of the Anti
When Ford Franks, who umpired
for both sides awhile, but mostly for
his own side, blew the whistle for
supper, there were eleven notches on
the stick for the "Anti-Hankers" and
three notches for "The Hankers And
Cotton Men." Doth sides at times
pasted the pesky pellet powerfully and
several pushed the pill clean over the
infield. Pink Sullivan starred with
the willow, having thr?e strikeouts and
a pop fly to the pitcher to his credit.
Others, too numerous to mention, did
As usual in such a game, many
stars were shining, though it has been '
