Since their stay here Mr. and Mrs. McCluer have endeared themselves to all with whom they have come in contact. As superintendent of city schools Mr. McCluer has not only proven himself efficient to the task and the man for the job, but has im pressed his personality most favor ably, and it is interesting to note his retention for next session.

TEAM PUTS UP GOOD FIGHT TO EBERHARD PLAYERS Game Sunday Was Classy, Even Though the Locals Went Down to Defeat Before the Professionals — Visitors Scored Their First in the Fifth —Lower’s Clean Hit. “GIANTS” AND “INDIANS” OF LITTLE YARD CLOSE SEASON. Stanislaus Has Two Games With Gulf Coast Military—One Here Tuesday; the Other Thursday at Gulfport—The “Jinx” Followed the Locals to Gulfport Diamond. On Sunday last the Stanislaus varsity nine went down to defeat be fore Ebarhard’s Dixie Leaguers. This is the strongest semi-pro team in this section and probably has no peer in the entire South. Many of the old time Southern League stars are num bered among its players. In this game the College team made the best start they have ever made thus far this year. They put out the first three Dixie Leaguers at bat and in their half of the inning Bishop ,the lead-off man, was walked; Martin also was walked. Fruge hit to the shortstop, who threw Martin out on second. This put Bishop on third. Lower’s clean hit to left field scored Bishop. This ended the scor ing. LEAGUERS SCORE FIRST IN FIFTH. The Dixie Leaguers scored their first in the fifth. Buck Banville sin gled, Eckert followed with another single, Veazie then knocked a clean two-bagger. This scored Banville, but Eckert and Veazie both died on base. They scored their second run in the sixth inning, when Fos made a three-bagger with one man out. Ernst hit a stiff one to the pitcher, which he fumbled. This easily scored Fos. Again in the eighth they scored, Rogers got on base through an error on shortstop. McGovern, who fol lowed, was thrown out at first; Fos, the next man up, also was thrown out, but Rogers advanced to third and a clean two-bagger by Ernst scored him. This ended their scor ing. In the ninth inning they re ceived two hits; no man reached sec ond. CONTESTANTS, ONE ERROR EACH. St. Stanislaus and the Dixie Leag uers made one error each. Gex and Montz, the Stanislaus bat tery, allowed eight hits; struck out three, and walked one. Rogers and Cazalot, battery for the Dixie Leag uers, allowed three hits; struck out six, and walked nine. Score by innings: R.H.E. Dixie Leaguers 000 Oil 010 —3 8 1 St. Stanislaus- 100 000 000—1 3 1 Umpires—Phillips and Cue, JUNIOR LEAGUES CLOSE. Last Thursday saw one of the most spirited contests that has ever been played on the little yard diamond, when the Giants went down in defeat before the slugging Indians in the game which decided the champion ship of junior leagues. In the first inning the Giants start ed off the hitting when Laporte, the lead-off man, hit a home run. The next man was thrown out. Cregasi, the third batter, sent the ball over the fence for a two-bagger. La Nase singled,; the next batter, Zeron, also singled and Crefasi came home. Hy mel then sacraficed and La Nasa came home. The next man was thrown out at first. The score stood 3 to 0 in favor of the Giants. The Indians started scoring in the fourth, when Meredier got safe on first through the first baseman’s er ror. The next man fanned, Guedry, the next batter, sent the ball out to the center field for a three-bagger and Zeron’s perfect peg was the only thing that kept him from following Meredier in home. Stephenson, the next batter, walked. S. Hymel got on first due to the baseman’s error, Stephenson coming in on the play. Schexnayder was walked. This filled the bases and Roshko’s hit through second drove in the winning runs. The next men were put out, but the damage had been done, and the game ended 4 to 3 in favor of the Indians. Score by innings: R.H.E. Giants 300 00 —33 1 Indians 000 4 x—4 33 Umpire—Red Isbell. STANISLAUS RALLIES IN THE SEVENTH, WINNING FROM G. C. M. A. On Tuesday, May 9th, the St, Stan islaus baseball team ventured forth on the local diamond to play their first game with the Gulf Coast Mili tary Academy in two years. During the earlier part of the game both teams seemed determined not to elt the othe r score. This w r as done by some fine fielding on the part of both teams, and by the superb pitching of Cleveland and Spencer. Spencer with his little drop and “round-house outshoot” was able to hold the Collegians scoreless until the seventh inning, when Lower reached first on an error, Jaubert walked, and then Mr. Fruge appear ************ * * * COLUMN de BULL. * * * ..A*********** By Fuller BuH. Last week we made a very urgent call fo r help. We begged some of our Naval Store friends to come along an’ spill a ton or so of ROSIN on the trail of them birds from the House O’Brains, for they was hittin’ the toboggan on the downward glide; Yea, 80, Yea; Slippin’ some! Well, we went out on Tuesday to see if some guy had Responded; an’, 80, they had; a Angel had camped on the trail where there was so much Graphite an’ sprinkled the said run thick with the foresaid Rosin. Slip? Not on your settin hen! Them birds was all to the rosin with nary a slide, an’ when they got their stride; why, 80, they war’nt no stop pin’ ’em, not a tall. Kid Cleveland was straddle the mound with a grin on his fizz an’ a bug in his bicep; only in one spasm did them Soldier boys have any pronounced gaiety; that was in the sth, when they trip ped in with three tallies. We very kindly remarked to a geezer what was sittin’ in our Port side: Wait till the bloody seventh, lad, an’ you’ll see era remark a few on that Drop-artist. Well, Hortense, shonufii it so transpired.

Excuse me, please. BANK ELECTS NEW DIRECTOR. Merchants’ Bank at Regular Meeting Last Night Elects New Member to Its Board of Directors. At a regular monthly meeting of the board of directors of the Mer chants’ Bank, held at its banking house last night, Mr. E. J. Lacoste was unanimously elected a member and accepted the post by hi s presence and in a well worded and happy ad dress. Mr. Lacoste is well known. A prominent and successful business man of New Orleans, ho is a perma nent resident of Bay St. Louis, hav ing resided here for several years, and is actively connected with all that tends to the best interests of Bay St. Louis. He is prominent so cially and one of the moving spirits of the Bay-Waveland Yacht and Ath letic Club. The bank will get the benefit of his business wisdom and a wise selection has been made. —Dr. and Mrs. C. L. Peacock and interesting family left Wednesday night for their home in Atlanta, Ga., after spending about a year in Bay St. Louis. They have many friends here and their departure will prove a source of much regret. ed at the bat and poled out a two bagger, scoring Loewer and Jaubert. Keiffer then distinguished himself with the willow when he hit for a three-bagger. This successive hitting seemed to have somewhat baffled our “Lil Friend” Spencer and the Col legians were able to score seven runs in the seventh inning, off of six hits, a walk and an error. The visitors’ three scores came in the fifth inning. They were the re sult of a walk, an error and two hits. STANISLAUS DEFEATED AT G. C. M. A. Thursday afternoon, on the dia mond of the Gulf Coast Military Academy, the St. Stanislaus baseball team suffered a defeat at the hands of the G. C. M. A. boys, that is some what a mystery to those who were not present at the game. Afte r se curing eleven singles, five doubles and a triple, and playing almost er rorless ball, they went down at the mercy of the G. C. M. A, team, by a score of 7 to 6. The G. C. M. A. boys made 8 hits, 2 errors and walked 3 men. Yet, dear friends, they won. Lower, Fruge and Martin led the attack for the locals, while Lauve led the attack for the Gulf Coast. A further explanation is useless, for it cannot be “publicly explained by the writer,” and will therefore continue to be a mystery to those who do not understand baseball and umpires. J. N.
