* Belt Valley Times n
—From tile Great Falls Tribane
Belt had little regard for Hanson's
or the West Side's feelings and after
the losing hurler had donated the
visitors two runs to tie the score in
the fourth inning they hit him for a
doable and a single and put one man
on through catcher's interference to
run up a five total, sufficient as it was
to win the game. All of which hap
pened with two men out
In the following inning Balt war
riors started out again with tea» out.

Up to ths fourth inning Hanson
with the excep
worked a good
tion of two walks aritb two ont hi
second, which did no damage. In the
fifth, after the fire works were shot,
Hansen fanned the first and last man
of th* inning but after that wasn't as
effective as at the start.
Up until the fourth inning Gaugler
showed practically nothing. He had
trouble getting the ball where he
wanted it and when he did didn't have
*sything on it But from the fourth
on—sweet papa. Had he started like
- he finished he would have made Hook
Cony's strikeout mark of 11 man look
sick. He Tanned nine men as it was.
eight of then after Belt todk the
mending lead.
Tommy Adamson wa* pot out of the
game by Umpire Pearce in the second
inning in a dispute over a decision of
the official on a man at second.
West Side took the lead in the first
Inning by putting over two runs
the help of Anderson snd a wild pitch
Baxter led off with s single to abort
right DiD filed'out to first and Weir
doubled to right Reppy forced Bax
ter st third but Weir scored when An
dersQn muffed Hogan'* fly, Bair laid
one down in front of the plate and
went safe when Vern Daniels wrapped
it up. Reppy came home on a wild
pitch. Resfeellj fanned to end the
frame. _
West Side held the lead then for
three innings with some snappy field
ing. Three men were set down in
order in an inning with the exception
of the second when Hanson walked a
pair but pulled out unscathed. After
the first inning West Side did little
to speak of at the plate, Gaugler keep
ing their three hits well apart. Then
the visitors won the game, something
«like this;
C. Daniels led off in the fourth,
grounding out to third. Vern tried to
duck one, the ball hitting his bat and
rolling to the box for an eaay second
Anderson touched off the fireworks
then by beating out s single to Rea
telH, the first hit of the game off
Hanson. Strizich's only error—aside
from it he played a pretty game—al
lowed Knight the initial bag. Harper
hit a high one to the box for a single,
Hanson barely knocking down the halt
He recovered it behind the mound and
made a wild heave at Baler on first.
His aim aras quite punk ana Anderson
and Knight crossed the platter.
Hogan got his mit hi the way of
Culver's tat then and gave him a base.
Gaugler drove in Harper and Culver
with the winning run* with a doable
to left center, and himself crossed the
platter on Lowry's single to center.
Lowry was pegged at second for the
third out
In the fifth, after two men had set
down. Belt scored the last ran of the
pose and the only earned counter.
