Roads Into Kendrick to IO 3 It fir a Give Your Home Merchant A Chance VOLUME 29. KENDRICK. LATAH COUNTY. IDAHO. FRIDAY. JUNE 6. 1919 NUMBER 23 Won Two Ball Games Everything is lovely again in base ball circles—Kendrick won two more baseball games last week, one with Genesee on Memorial day and one with Bovill last Sunday. The defeat suffered at the hands of the Lewiston team two weeks ago is being somewhat forgotten since two more scalps have been brought into the camp of the Kendrick ball club. The game proved to be somewhat in the nature of a decisive defeat for the Genesee team as the score was 19 to 1 in favor of Kendrick. The game afforded some splendid batting practice as the score in dicates. Densow pitched the nine innings securing only 17 strike-outs. He apologizes for the small number and.blamed the cold weather ^for it. The game at Bovill Sunday was also rather lopsided as the score was 14 to 0 in favor of Kendrick. Den sow and Forest were the battery for Kendrick. Thirteen strike-outs were marked on the score book for Densow. Forest and Densow work together like a well-criled machine. They are both exceptionally good ball players. Brown secured four runs out of five times at bat, one of them being a home run. All of the Kendrick boys batted well in both the Bovill and Genesee games. Louie Rognstad played third base at Genesee and Bovill. He is a good third baseman and an all-round ball player. The line-up for Kendrick was as follows: Forest, catcher; Densow, pitcher; Brown, 1st base; McCrea, 2nd base; McCreary, short; Rognstad, 3rd base; Compton, Car roll and Bolon in the field; Fred Flaig, utility man. Manager Wilocx has a game with Orofino, at that place, for Sunday. The following Sunday there will be a'game here and then on the 22nd of June Kendrick is going to Lewis ton to win one more game.

S." i The writer ommitted his midie in-1 0 itial so we will sign it properly, Everybody knows him so there is no need of mentioning names: Takes me back to good old Kend rick, That Village on the Rhine, Where everybody's nappy And you never hear a whine. (?) Where the kids are never sassy, Where the cats are trained to fight, Where the business men are honest, Where there's dogs that bark all night. Where the water's cold and fizzy, With the air that's in the pipe; Where the swimmin' hole is busy Without a Bathin' suit in sight. i Where the hotels are always chdm- ! y Where the boys husky, Where the owners are like Pals; j strong and WhPt-P therp's miirhtv liklev eats ' Where there s mighty likley gals.

Road Work Started Monday the great work started on the road building between Kendrick and Juliaetta under the supervision of A. G. Wilson. Mr. Wilson has had some very difficult road prob lems to solve in the road district of which he is supervisor and he prob ably is as good a man for this work j as can be found in the community. I He understands rock work and gen eral road building. There are no j very difficult stretches of road to ; be built.between Kendrick and; the road will be built in time.

A good crew of men and | teams are at work and it is believ-jsteep short j This is the first step toward se curing the Kendrick-Juliaetta-Lew* iston highway. Every citizen of : : the Potlatch country should boost j jfor this highway as though their! lives depended upon it. There no other one thing that will de- j velop the Potlatch as rapidly and ! to such a great extent as will a gravel road between Kendrick and Southwick Items Lewiston. It is something that no one in his right mind can consist ently oppose. - Homer Betts from overseas re turned home Friday.

To Change Road Marshall Roekwood and G. W. Benjamin started work Monday im proving the grade leading from the warehouse to the park. This is the first step in a contemplated change in the road entering town fiom lower Potlatch creek. The village j board has had this matter under I consideration for some time and al though plans for the proposed j change are not fully matured it is ; certain something will be done to avoid the step'hill on the present road in the outskirts of town. The plan at present being considered is to close up a short section of the | road now in use, including the hill mentioned, ar.d divert the j travel to a new piece of road to be built beginning at the warehouse and leading past the park to a con nection with the main road at the : bridge below the park.
