impossible for the game of bail sche
duled for Sunday at Fairfax to be
pulled off and that gives the New Ulm

start at home with a loyal bunch of
face to cheer them on to victory may

started on a successful season. The
weather at this writing looks as tho it
had been specially prepared for the
opening game and if itcontinues favor
able all week the boys will soak in
enuf "pep" to make things start with
hum. A sunny day without a cold
breese and you have the chief makin's
of a good game, and only one thing
more is essential to a good showing
by the boys and that is an enthusias
tic crowd of rooters, fans and bugs.
Every business man who has invested
a cent in the new club should be on
hand Sunday afternoon toscollect the
interest on his money. The game will
be called at 3 P. M. and the ^baseball
band will be in attendance.
