Plans for a game between the Barre Legion team and the Ea-t Barre base ball nine for this afternoon had to be abandoned after it was learned that the Phelps company team had sched uled and advertised a game on the Lincoln diamond for this afternoon also. The Lejrion management was anxious to stage a game to-day be cause Americo Polli, who is here from Saranac Lake, X'. Y., had agreed to do the pitching for the game. The Barre fans may find consolation, how ever, in the fact that Polli has con sented to remain here until Saturday to pitch against the, Winooski team that afternoon, the team that twice defeated the Legion team here July 4 Pollainger, the young t wirier who held the Barre team to four hits that aft ernoon, will oppoe the Legion team Saturday, a team much stronger than it was on the Fourth.
