THE COMMUNITY SERVICE
After weeks of preparation the
lig Community Service Picnic was
.brought to a focus yesterday, when
large crowds gathered at the beau
tiful woodland of Forrest Letton, on
the Lexington road, near Paris, for
an afternoon of. enjoyment. The
day was threatening part of the
time, but the weather man held off
-and gave them a fair deal.
Preceding the program at the
grounds, the Maysville Boys' Band,
one of the best musical organiza
tions in the State, delighted the
large crowd in the city with a
splendid musical program in front
of the court house. The band was
late in arriving, and necessarily
cut short their contemplated pro
gram. At the picnic grounds, the
following program of exercises was
carried out in the presence of one of
the largest crowds of the season:
Racing from 10:00 a. m. to 10:45 a.
m.; Addresses by Major Samuel Wil
son, of Lexington, 11:00 a. m.;
Dinner, 12:30 p. m.; Dancing, 1:00
to 6:00 p. m., seven-piece orchestra;
auction sale of provisions, clothing,
etc., conducted by Auctioneers Geo.
D. Speakes and Hensel Margolen;
2:00 p. m., Girls' baseball game,
4:30 p. m. Besides these there
were other attractions o f a
nature calculated to amuse the peo
ple. The musical program by the
Maysville Boys' Band was one of the
main features of a most enjoyable
day. The games were under the
supervision of Miss Grace Cruick
shanks, director of the Community
Service playgrounds for Paris.

out by the score 4of 7 to 2. Long

a large delegation of Paris fans
went to Winchester to see the
game between Winchester and Cynthiana.
The Executive Committee of the
Presbyterian Educational Campaign
voted unanimously to set a quota of
$25,000 for Paris as their share in
the one million dollars to be given
the nine institutions so essential to
Presbyterians in Kentucky.
"From now until the actual soli
citation starts," said Mr. M. Peale
Collier, Chairman of the Executive
Committee yesterday, "we expect to
use every possible means in putting
this cause clearly and squarely be
fore the Presbyterians of Paris. We
have always stressed Christian ed
ucation and among the things in
which we have taken pride is our
chain of Christian colleges and in
stitutions. I think it is Christian
citizenship that moves us to unite as
Presbyterians in a common effort to
strengthen our schools and colleges
for the good of the church."
Plans are being perfected for the
organization of the team heads and
teams for the actual solicitation of
the money. The Students Rally will
be held Tuesday evening at eight

twirler, pitching against his for-

din'als stormed the Paris Mammoths
on the Maysville grounds "in Thurs
day's game, winning out by the
score of 7 to 3. Cotter, who was on
the mound for Paris, was not very
effective, and the Maysville boys as
sembled a large bunch of safe hits
off his delivery. Wills twirled the
eighth inning for the Mammoths.
The game was protested in the fifth
inning by Manager Wills, when Nip
pert was thrown out at home, the
claim being made that the umpire's
decision was an unfavorable one.
The game was not an especially bril
liant one. The batteries were:
For Paris Cottor, Wills, Macke
and Engle; for Maysville Miner
and Connolly. The game went two
hours and fifteen minutes, and was
umpired by Triebel.
Bert Engle, catcher, a former
member of the Lynchburg team, and
infielder Heilman, a recruit from
the same league, are the latest addi
tions to the Mammoths' forces.
They came to Paris with Winger,
Cotter and Dehaven, who have each
figured in recent gamed. Engle hails
from Norfolk, Va., and Heilman is
a member of the Heilman family, of
Cincinnati, who have made their
mark in baseballdo'm.
In the game on the Jacksonville
grounds Sunday afternoon, the Es
condida team administered a defeat
to the Jacksonville team by a score
of 5 to 3. Rainey, on the pitching
mound for the Escondida team,
struck out fifteen men. Escondida
tied the score in the eighth inning,,
and put over the two winning runs
in the ninth. Linville Ditched for
Jacksonville. The battery for Es
condida was Rainey and Mitchell.
The game was witnessed by a large
crowd of interested spectators.
The defeat which Paris sustained
at the hands of Cynthiana in Satur
day's game was completely wiped
out when the two teams clashed at
League Park Sunday afternoon. The
game was a victory for the Paris
team by the score of 7 to 3, due
mainly to the masterly pitching of
Rumage, and the good support ac
corded him by his teammates. By
defeating Cynthiana Paris tied Cyn
thiana for first place. Rumage
pitched one of the best games seen
here this season. Nippert and En
gle starred with the stick for Paris.
Heilman and Nippert secured two-
base hits. One of the largest crowds
of the season witnessed the game,
which went for two hours and thir
ty minutes, and was umpired by Os
borne. The batteries were: For
Paris Rumage and Macke; for
Cynthiana Long, Mulhollen, Bai

The "Court Day" crowd in the
city yesterday was somewhat larger
than usual, owing to the day being
a holiday, and the Community Pic
nic in Letton's woods offering a
means of recreation for the farmers.
There was very little livestock on
the market, a few horses and cattle
changing haiids at good prices.
Nearly all the business houses clos
ed in the afternoon to give their em
ployes a chance to attend the big
picnic, consequently business was
rather dull. The usual side attrac
tions peculiar to "Court Day" were
on hand, including an itinerant ex
horter, who addressed a small crowd
on the public square. The intense
heat made the day an uncomfortable
one for those whose business com
pelled them to be in the open. In
