The play was enlivened by both vocal and In strumental music, which adds ma terially to any performance and holds the interest and attention of the aud ience. The singing by the company of players following the jazz-time wedding and their closing song dem onstrated that there were some good voices among them. The jazz-time wedding in the play could not have been done better by those of the pro fession, and from the "Hoodooed Coon" to the "flower girl"—every character was well sustained. Between the acts, Miss Aarona Moore sang "Old Pal" (Why Don't Vou Answer Me?), and responded 0 an enchore by singing “Three O'clock In the Morning," and Miss kddie Merlaldo rendered the vocal olo. “Your Eyes Have Told Me So,” ‘nd also responded to an enchore by tinging, "Wake Up Little Girl, You kre Dreaming.” TWO GOOD BALL GAM.EH The ball games on the 4th and 5th ,f Ju'y between the Eureka and Car in teams were both won by the Eu eka Club. In spite of the fact that he new grounds of the Eureka Ball lub are somewhat soft, some excel ent playing was displayed by both «nnis. Joe Rebaleati caught both ames for Eureka, and John Carda elll and Pete Merlaldo were the urlers. The general playing of the atterles was far above the average nd of material assistance In winning be games. Willie Wines pitched for Carlin he first day and finished the game he second day after Burt Brandeis ,ai retired by heavy hitting by the local team. B. Ganshlre caught both games for Carlin and did a good Job. It would be Impossible in our space to state the merits of the play ers outside of the batteries. All of them played their positions well, and the crowd present each day ap plauded many of the fielders plays. The score on the 4th was 11 to 5, and on the Sth, 13 to «. The Carlin team and 'the friends that accompanied them proved to be a good bunch of sports. They en tered into the spirit of all the activi ties of the celebration and added much life and pep to the occasion. They expressed themselves when leaving here as more than pleased with the treatment they had received in Eureka, and especially requested the Sentinel to record their apprecia tion of our hospitality. Bill Clute officiated as umpire in chief, with James Mann, Jr„ as as sistant. The Eureka Band added greatly to the pleasure of the celebration with the music It rendered daily on the street and at the ball grounds while the games were being played. This was the first time the band has played while the games were in progress, and was favorably received and com mented upon. THRKK NIGHT DANCKH Dances were held in the big Eu reka Pavilion on the nights of the 3rd. 4th and 5th and were well at tended, the large site of the hall barely accommodating the dancers at all times. The Eureka string orches tra furnished One music, and daylight was well advanced before “Home, Sweet Home,” was played each morn ing. The opening dance following the play at the Eureka Theatre Monday evening was under the management of the Eureka Base Ball Club. On the evening of the 4th the Rescue Hose Company gave Us annual ball —one of Eureka’s notable social events of the year. The Rescue Hall Association gave the ball Wednesday evening that terminated the Eureka celebration. FIGHTING CXiNTKHTH DRAW LARGE AUDIENCE The boxing contests and fight that was advertised to take place at the Eureka Theatre on the evening of July 4th were entirely satisfactory to the large audience present. About one-third of the spectators were wo men, who found to their surprise that a series of events of thiB char acter could be conducted and carried out with less shocking features than the ordinary picture Bhow from Hollywood displays. The first event was announced as a boxing contest between K. O. Gavin and Tommy Britt. Pour rounds were allotted to this bout, but on the fourth round Britt weakened through hard body blows and went to his cor ner to save a knockout. Gavin was declared the winner. The second contest was between Snider and Burdick. Through a de fault by the opponent originally billed to appear against Snider, Bur dick substituted. The cleverness and clowning of the participants was in tensely amusing to the audience, and when the referee declared a draw, the house was in an uproar of mirth. The Anal ana mam event, oeiweeu Long Kid Murphy and Fighting Blacksmith Martin was the conclud ing feature of the program. Both of these parties were in to win, and from the moment the referee called time action was fast and furious. Murphy's weight was announced at 162 pounds and Martin's at 184. Af ter an exchange of several hard blows. Martin cornered Murphy and delivered three telling blows to Mur phy’s body. Murphy slipped out of the corner, and in a mix-up in the center of the ring, landed three smashing blows on Martin, who was knocked out by a right swing to the Jaw. This occurred one minute and 46 seconds after the bout started, and Martin was counted out by the referee as he tried to rise from the floor. The ring was pitched on the main floor of the Eureka Theatre, and the arrangement of seats afforded all spectators an unobstructed view of the contests. Bill Clute officiated as referee. Miss Vernie Depaoll. who is con valescing from a severe attack of pneumonia, is now able to be out of bed and is reported to be slowly re gaining her strength. * eureka can obtain GOOD RADIO SERVICE But Strong Static Condition* Prevail ing Herr Monday Night Pre vented Good Service Right on the dot as per schedule announced. Wallace Blood and Wil liam Heinz, in charge of the complete radio outfit that is giving open air radio concerts over the Lincoln High way Route, arrived in Eureka Satur day afternoon and that evening placed their sedan auto containing the radio receiving apparatus on Main street in front of the Courts house. An aerial was run from the top of the flag pole on the Court house to the top of the Eureka The atre building, at a height of about 80 feet, and connection made with the radio plant. The work of tuning In to catch the radio waves sent out from the California broadcasting stations was almost Immediately successful and the station at Catalina Island, near Los Angeles, was picked up and came strong. Mr. Blood stated that this demonstrated that there were no unfavorable radio conditions at Eureka and that we should be able to get good radio service here. He stated that at Ely, the previous even ing, be was unable to get any service at all. and ascribed the probable cause to be its location in a pocket of surrounding hills, and that per haps Its Immense mineral deposits also mitigated against receiving the radio waves. There was a big crowd present, ev ery one from near and far turning out for a demonstration of this new wonder of the age, and although band music and a highly cultivated woman’s voice could be distinctly heard singing between the loud rasps of static, the operator was unable to obtain any connected service that was not marred by the strong static con ditions prevailing here that evening. Trials continuing for about two hours were made In the hope of obtaining satisfactory service, and the Los An geles station was also caught, but the static conditions continued and the effort to obtain anything worth while was abandoned. It was stated that the general static conditions dur ing the warm Summer months were against good radio service. NEW ROAD AROUND SHOSHONE POINT OPEN Battle Mt. Scout: One of the worst stretches on the Victory high way was eliminated last week when the new road around Shoshone Point was completed under the direction of Commissioner K. A. Fulkerson of Eureka County. The old road over Shoshone Point In several places had a grade of over 20 per cent and was considered dangerous, and that no accident ever occurred on that cer tain piece of road Is most remark able. Some months ago the Com missioners of Eureka County and the State Highway board secured from the Southern Pacific Company the right to use the old roadbed, or right of way, of that company, and this is the new stretch of road Just com pleted and now ready for travel. BANK DIRK<TORS’ MEETING The Farmers and Merchants Na tional Bank of Eureka held a di rectors' meeting on Monday evening, July 3. J. Sheehan, president of the bank was present and presided.

He will make the drive alone and without stopping for sleep on the trip-. ‘‘The present record stands at 84 hours, made by relaying a car across the country, 16 drivers being used, each taking a car over his assigned zone and turning the car over to the next man,” said Mr. Miller. “When this record was made the course was marked by flags and each driver was familiar with every inch of the road he was to cover. “On this trip I will, as 1 did one year ago. drive the entire distance. I will have no relief drivers. Know ing how well marked the Lincoln Highway is, I feel that a wonderful opportunity presents itself to prove to the motoring world that there is a trans-continental route that can be covered by one driver in less than the relay record time—with the assist ance of local suporters along the rente.” Mr. Miller explained that pilot cars are being offered through local con sule of the Lincoln Highway associa tion. Pilot cars will be known by waving a white flag, and will be trav eling in the same direction as the racing car.
