the different teams will understand
that this Is strictly a city league, with
the primary object of playing base
ball this summer for the fun and ex
ercise with the winning of games a
Each manager is urged to get as
many men a.-* possible from the
stores, street, or clubs that they re
present and no tto branch out too far
from their stores to get men to play.
By building up these strong teims.
the managers will gain nothing by it
for they Will be dissolved as ?<>on as
they are made up and not allowed to
play. If a team improves after lea
gue play Is started, that is a differ ? \t
story, but no manager will be allowed
to canvass the county fir baseball
material to represent some business
or organization in the city.
The president of the league is
strongly In favor of not allowing any
team entered In the league to get a
single player that lives outuld-? the
city limits unless he Is a member of
the firm represented or very closely
connected with r in n buslnes* way.
Without these limitations, the league
will be a semi-pro organisation before
the season Is ha 1 ' cvr. urd a failure,
it is feared.
The Tar Heels loot an extra inning
game to State 7-6. and will be out for
revenge Thursday. The team didn't
look so good playing Wake Forest
Monday, but Is expected to be back at
its top stride for this ftn&t game.
N. C. State Is standing well at the
top in the Big Five face, and Will
be as anxious for a victory’, as will
the Tar Heels.
