An out-of-town tilt at Tiffin this
Friday night, followed by two home
contests next week, are on schedule
for the hard luck Triplett softball
team attempting to regain its win
ning stride.
At Tiffin Friday, the locals will
tangle with the National Machinery
crew of that place, and the schedule
next Monday will find them playing
Leipsic on the Harmon field diamond
at 7 p. m.
A protracted mid-season jinx con
tinued to dog the Triplett softball
team in play of the last week, and
the local outfit went down to defeat
in two bitterly contested games.
Playing in the Allen county tour
nament, the Triplett crew went into
the last inning with a 1 to 0 lead,
and the cause appeared hopeful for
until that time the team’s opponent,
Lima Grace M. E. church, had gone
hitless.

Triplett Softball Schedule Brings
Strong Leipsic Team Here Monday
Disaster broke loose after the first
man up had been retired, however,
and the Lima team rapped three con
secutive hits, followed by a wild
throw to third base, which gave a
2 to 1 decision to the Grace outfit.
Triplett’s lone run in the sixth in
ning when Jim Gratz, who had
walked, scored on Spaeth’s single.
In a return contest with the
strong Tiffin Routh Meat Packers
outfit, Triplett lost a 3 to 0 count
Monday night at Harmon field.
Triplett Softball Team Loses To
Grace M. E. And Routh Meat Packers
Both teams went scoreless until
the sixth, with Spaeth and Altman
hurling spectacular ball. The visi
tors uncorked a hitting barrage in
the sixth, however, to account for
two runs, and another tally was
made in the seventh frame to ac
count for the visitors’ margin of
victory.

Camp Cavalcade
SHADOWY
figures in a cavalcade
of American history—such are
the men behind the names of the
great army cantonments scattered
all over the United States, where
young Americans are learning to be
soldiers in order to defend their
country when the need arises.
If the deeds of a man who served
brilliantly in three wars can inspire
his fellow-Amer
leans, then the
men who are
training at Camp
Shelby, near Hat
tiesburg, Miss.,
have plenty of
cause for inspira
tion. For it is

a settler in west-
Isaac Shelby ern Virginia at
the outbreak of
Lord Dumore’s war in 1774. He
fought in the historic Battle of Point
Pleasant but he won his greatest
fame during the Revolution as one
of the leaders of the frontier rifle
men who won the great victory over
Major Ferguson’s British at the Bat
tle of King’s Mountain. Moving to
Kentucky after the Revolution, Shel
by wras one of the framers of the
constitution of Kentucky and in May,
1782, was elected first governor of
the new state. At the outbreak of
the War of 1812 he led 4,000 volun
teers to help Gen. W. H. Harrison
fight the British and Indians in the
Northwest and for his bravery at
the Battle of the Thames he was
given a gold medal by congress.
Another Revolutionary war hero
is immortalized in Camp Stewart
near Hinesville, Ga.—Gen. Daniel
Stewart, born near the site of the
camp in 1761. He enlisted in the Pa
triot forces at the age of 15 and
served under Marion and Sumter in
South Carolina. Captured by the
British, he escaped from a prison
ship in Charleston harbor and im
mediately re-enlisted in the fight for
freedom. After the Revolution he
served in several Indian wars and
rOSe to the rank of brigadier-gen
er$l before his death in 1829.

the presidency between Jefferson

house of representatives for a deci

vote for his friend on the thirty*

appointed him territorial governor

him and General Wilkinson
