THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUN-TELEGRAM - SATURDAY, MAY 10,1919.
CAGE ELEVEN RICHMOND HAS NEW CHANCE. AT SEMI-PRO BALL Eggemeyer to Newcastle To morrow to Consider North ern Central Berth. Richmond's semi-professional baBO- J tested game. In this game the two ball chance has come at last! 'teams worked hard for the edge on - Clubs composing the Northern Cen-jthe score but the superior work of. the tral league have found the present' St. Paul's again brought that tea3 organization too large and are now ready to consider another organiza tion, according to Elmer Eggemeyer. president of the Richmond Exhibition company who talked with Harry Cham ber of Muncie and Manager Jenkins of Newcastle, Sunday Both managers favor a smaller organization and Chambers invited Eggemeyer and another Richmond man to attend a meeting at Newcastle Sunday for the purpose of organizing a smaller cir cuit. The cities expected to send -representatives, to this meeting are Rich mond," Muncie, Newcastle, Anderson, Peru Marion, Kokomo and two other clubs which will be traveling clubs in the loop. Both Jenkins and Chambers have been strong for Richmond's en trance into the semi-pro ball this year. Official Will Attend The Northern Central league com posed of twelve clubs has developed several clubs which are determined to hang on, but have not enough money to put up the required forfeit and havo very poor teams. There are about five cities that have not forfeited yet. It is thought that Charles Carr and W. E. Ball, both officials of the . Northern Central, will be present at the meet- mg to aid in tne organization of tne new league. In case enough managers report at this meeting Sunday the league organ ization will be completed and whipped into shape soon. Elmer Eggemeyer will appoint a manager for the Rich mond team and begin to mobilize the players that will represent Richmond. Whether they will be for the most part local players has not been decided.Ar rangements will be made to get sev eral first class semi-pro ball players from other places and it is altogether possible that with a player limit in big leagues, that Richmond can obtain ono or two players which the major leagues wish to have a line on. Giants To Play Sunday Unless Weather Interferes If the pluvial weather will let up. Vint Cooney's Richmond Athletics and Wilson's colored Richmond Giants will stage their double-headed bill at Exhibition park Sunday afternoon. The game will not be called off un til Sunday morning.

First Methodist and St Paul's Lutheran Teams Win PosUSeason Games The First Methodist and St Paul's Lutheran Scout basketball teams were victorious in the three post-season games played Friday night at the Y. M. C. A. gym which was followed by a camp reunion meeting. As the South Eighth Street Friends team failed to put in its appearance the St. Paul's Lutheran played two games. The first game was with the First Presbyterian which it cornered with a score of 18 to 10. The game was rough from start to finish, all players playing their best for points. Dunham of the St. Paul aggregation piled up a score sufficiently large to win while Bentlage was the big point getter for the losers. In the second game the First M. E.'s, playing four regulars and one sub, walked over the First Presby terian church basketball team to 'the tune of 14 to 1. Kessler, Thomas and Johnson were the stars of the M. B. team. Kessler and Thomas di vided honors and1layed a good game on the offensive, passing circles around the Presbys. Johnson : made four of the goals, while Cummins was the chief net star for their opponents, shooting four goals. The final game saw jthe St. Paul aggregation again walk away with first honors when it defeated the I n.r-cfa. M V. ' team In " a closely eon- through victorious, 13 to 10.

Pheasant and quail will road ahead of a noisy dog, until the eannie Is get ting too near, at which time they take wing. While following a male pheas ant to the top of a hill, I was treated to a view of the Rogue River Valley orchards.
