Athletic Association at
as far back as possible from the large
I.art night at the Pythian building
occurred one of the largest meetings
that has ever been held in this town,
the purpose of which was to form an
athletic association at the Fairbanks
Mor.sc shops, and thereby provide this
town with a baseball team and other
.sports of the caliber that it has cn-
iovod in the nast vears. Over 200
employees of the factory were present
in spite of the bad weather, and if the
enthusiasm shown at this meeting is.
kept u;. the fans are sure to see the
class of sports that they want.
Charlie Hoernle will have chare;
of all athletics of this organization,
and that in itself is enough to assure
the sport loving ones of this town the
best of what there is in that line.
The meeting was in charge of Iiev
erdy A. Cramer, who acted as chair
man, and he opened the meeting by
explaining the idea of the gathering
as being of benefit to the factory, the
employees and the town.
Henry Gallagher gave an idea of
the advantages of a club house that
would result from such an association
and tho clean sport that could be de
rived. C. B. Rathbun then took the floor
and said that he had helped in form
ing a like organization in Beloit, Wis.,
eight years ago, that was one of the
strorgest clubs in the West today,
and that if the enthusiasm shown had
anything to do with such a club thai
it was already assurred, for the at
tendance at this meeting surpassed
that of the Beloit meeting. He fur
ther stated that all the expenses for
the first year would be guaranteed
and that the p'airbanku-lIorse people
would be only too glad, to give their
support to such an organization for
its employees. To give those attend
ing an idea of what kind of club
might be formed, he read the con
stitution and by-laws of the Fairbanks-Morse
Athletic Association of
Beloit, Wis., although he' expressed
the opinion that many of the rules
'-iiMght have to be changed to suit lo
Charlie Hocvnle expressed in a few
well chosen words his appreciation
of the pleasure that he felt in being
with his St. Johnsbury friends again,
and then outlined u plan that he
would like to pursue in his new po
sition. He believed that with the help
of a couple of good men and some
inaleri.il at the shop, that he could
devtloo a team that would hold its
own with the teams of this section,
and that with care in arranging his
schedule, he felt sure of providing a
good brand of ball. His appearance
t was greeted with cheering, showing
the man's popularity with the local
The chairman at this stage of the
meeting culled for all those that
would be willing to join such an or
ganization to stand, an d at once
eveiyone in the house stood up.
The evening was enlivened by dis
cussions of the different rules for
sports by members of the gath
ering, they therebyshowing the inter
est of all in the project.
In the different discussions that
came up, much attention was given to
Sunday baseball. Every one in the
hall snowed by vote that they would
bo in favor of such a thing in this
town, and hoped that it would come
At the close of the meeting a com
mittee was chosen by the chairman
to arrange and discuss plans for the
formulation of this athletic associa
tion, one man being chosen from the
different departments. The committee
is composed of F. K. Church, F.d
ward Bishop, C. I!. Rathbun, Henry
Gallagher, Mike Coleman and Martin
Another meeting will be held in the
near future at which these men will
report, and, it is hoped the organiza
tion can be permanently formed. AH
those who attended last night are sun
to bo there, and many more will want
to be in on this good thing.
