THE LIBERAL DEMOCRAT
AMERICAN LEGION WINS
FROM LIONS CLUB
L(lo Mas Tama Lion in Exciting
Ball Cama Monday Evening
Seora Wa 11 to 2
One of the big base ball events of
the season was enacted Monday even
ing at the grounds south of town
when the local American Legion team
took some of the roar out of the
Lions Club, and tamed them to the
tune of 11 to 2. The score would
indicate a very one-sided fracus, but
such was not the case. The game was
interesting from start to finish, not
so much from the question of who
.would take the game, but from the
spectacular, grand stand plays and
There was much real first-class
base ball talent exhibited at the game
and it is likely that some of the bush
league scouts will be watching for
the next game between these , two
teams, and will be on hand to sign
up Borne of the best men.
. The base ball fans of the city are
hoping that the Lions and Legion
will cross bats again soon, and they
say that the outcome of the next
game will not be certain until the
end of the last inning.
