feated the Hancock school by a score
of 10 to 9. The game lasted 13 innings,
breaking the record' of innings, at the
children's playground, Tuesday i after
noon, April 2C. The game was inter
esting and was witnessed by a large
crowd of rooters and teachers from

The score would not have been so
close If it liad not been for Charles
Eitola, who got wild and gave them
seven runs in four innings, and was
finally taken , out of the box by S,
Crespi, captain of the team. Purdy was

Items of Interest From Everett
The girls of Everett grammar have
taken a great interest in basket ball,
and are improving rapidly^.ln the play
ing of tho game. Every Tuesday, after
noon they go to Horace Mrinn and have
a practice game . with the girls' team

much in developing a good team. . \u0084

What's Doing at Hamilton
Just at present basket ball is. not the
leading sport. About two weeks ago
the first team had a .game with the
Wilmerdlng freshmen. We outplayed
them entirely. The feataure was the
. remarkable goal shooting of Basq. The
score was 28 to 22. "
. Baseball has" not yet taken a strong
•hold 1 as one of. the leading sports. .A
second team is organized. It will be a
great help to the: fast team for prac-^
: tice. The last game that the first. team
played was with Spring Valley/school
at the big. recreation in Golden Gate
park. Hamilton won by the score of
16 to 7.
Hearst Girls' Team Is Active
The Hearst girls met the girls from
the .Roosevelt school in the courts of
the latter and they captured the hon
ors from them by a Score of 7 to 5.
As the score shows, | the game was
hotly contested and full of excitement.
From the beginning of the' first half
until the final whistle .blew, each team
was doing its. level best to establish a
lead, and neither succeeded, for at the
end of the first half the score stood 4
to .4. The second half netted but one
point for each side, so with score lied
and about two minutes to play, Miss
May Brown of Hearst threw, a field;*
the whistle blew and the game' was
won. The final score ' was Hearst 7,
Roosevelt ,5. • \u25a0 '<
Previous to this game a practice
game was played with, the girls from
the -Everett school, Hearst winning by
a score of 2C to 1. The Everett team
has just been organized "and so were
no 'match for their more experienced
opponents. On this account the game
can' not be counted against the girls
from \u25a0Everett..'

X the Initial inning, the only: time when'
> the result was at all doubtful being in
the first, when our opponents secured

tally they made in the last of the ninth,
netted them ( , three runs. "; ,
v Last Sunday Mr." Gantner, .formerly a
