Triplett Softball Team Wins And
Loses In Games Of Last
Breaking even in two games play
ed during the last week, the Triplett
softball team won a decision at home
and dropped a hard-fought contest on
a foreign diamond.
Playing here last Thursday, the
Manges-coached outfit trimmed Pan
dora, 21 to 5, on a wet field.
The setback of the week was ad
ministred at Upper Sandusky, Mon
day night when the Wyandot Vault
team of that place edged the 12 to 11,
in an extra inning tilt.
Heavy hitting featured the Trip
lett-Pandora contest with the Bluffton
crew teeing off with seven runs in
the first four in the third one in the
fourth, three in fifth and six in the
eigth.
Russ Gratz clouted two home runs
and Norm Triplett added another cir
cuit drive as a part of the rout.
Despite the fact that the Triplett
team took the field at Upper Sandus
ky riddled with injuries and illness,
the locals nearly bested the
Wyandot Vault crew for the second
time this year.
It was a contest hard on the nerves,
for the lead changed hands practically
every inning, and with the score tied
at the end of the regulation seventh
frame and additional stanza was play
ed to determine the winner.
Trailing by one run when the last
inning opened, the Triplett crew
counted three times in the first half
of the stanza to lead by two tallies.
Upper Sandusky also rallied, how
ever, and counted twice after one man
was out to force the game into extra
innings.
In the eigth, Triplett got two more
runs and it looked as if the Manges
outfit was assured of victory when
two Upper Sandusky men were retir
ed and no runs were scored.
However, the Vaults struck back to
score three runs and win the decision,
tallying the tying and winning score
on an error.

Celebration of the 110th annivers
ary of the first regularly operated
railroad line on Saturday of this
week will call attention to the con
trasts afforded by the modern pas
senger trains with the early variety.
The early trains were composed of
coach bodies placed on trucks coupled
with chains leaving about three feet
of slack. When the locomotive start
ed the coaches were jerked with such
force that few of the passengers
could keep their hats on.
In addition the volume of black
smoke came pouring back the whole
length of the train and before the
train got very far a general melee
took place among the passengers put
ting out fires in each other’s clothing.
There were numerous breakdowns
and often passengers assisted the
train crew in making repairs and
collecting fuel and water to get to
the next stop.
Today the modern streamlined lux
ury liners whisk those who choose to
ride by that mode across the contin
ent with virtually all of the
forts of home.

racing may not much
