This hardihood of the

and worth more than the
words which we allot it here.
Neither are we overlooking
the tenacity of the more lo

Lodge 146 and the hosting
Lodge 248 of Clairton.
Versailles Goes Down
The tournament brought
together four C.F.U. aggre
gations, each of which had
compiled enviable records in
their respective areas.
The opening game pitted
Clairton against Versailles.
Clairton scored one run first,
Versailles came back to a pair
via errors after which Clair
ton got three hits, their total
off Burger, good for two
runs and picked up two more
resulting out of walks, in the
third frame.
Rudy Perisich tightened
up as did his defense after
this as he held Versailles to
one hit by Tony Bernick in
the final score of 5-2. For
Versailles' Ed Burger we
can say that he did quite
well in a fast-pitch tounjey.
Youngstown in the second
game against Farrell, the two

off with a three run threat,
but Farrell bounced back in-

The Farrell-ites in the final

off to a comfortable lead on

Clairton came back with
three runs in their half of the
same inning, one being

We commend the players on
all four teams for the manner
in which they disported them
selves in games where official
umpires called them as they
