Triplett softball team will tangle
with a strong outfit representing the
Hobart Manufacturing Co., of Troy,
in a tilt under the lights at Harmon
field this Friday night.
It will be the last home game of
the season for the Triplett crew,
which has suffered only one setback
on the local diamond
In Allen county tournament play
at Lima last week, the Triplett crew
romped to an easy 16 to 1 decision
over High Street U. B., before drop

CIO by a 5 to 4 score.
Triplett ran up the most one-sided
score of the tourney against the
U. B. crew, scoring 13 runs in the
third inning. Gene Beech hurled
steady ball to give up only one tally.

dle Horse Club held Sunday after
noon will be an occasion long re
membered.
The gala affair, staged at Fox Hill
started at the noon hour with a
basket dinner and lasted throughout
the afternoon.
Food in abundance graced the
table which consisted of a large
farm wagon loaded with home made
cakes, pies, fried chicken and a
large variety of other delicacies.
During the afternoon ten water
melons, eight gallons of ice cream
and numerous cases of pop were
consumed as members and guests of
the riding association relaxed and
talked amid the pleasantness of the
bluff area overlooking Riley creek.
The committee in charge did not
“spare the hosses” and the affair
was one of the best ever held by the
organization. Children enjoyed pony
rides and riding up and down the
steep bluff added excitement for the
