Rosemary vs Patterson Mills A close, hardly contested game, featured by Edwards (Patterson Mills) work at second base and the brilliant battery work of both teams. Hayes (Rosemary) pitched his first game for the league and shows every promise of becoming an exceptional pitch er. He has everything in the league outclassed as far as speed is concerned, but his control needs improving. Snotherly pitched in his usual form, except for a bad let down in the second inning, when Rosemary got six hits and scored four runs. His pitching tightened up after that and he held Rosemary down to two hits for the remaining seven innings. The hitting was excep tionally heavy on both sides, Patterson Mills getting ten hits to Rosemary's eight. Rosemary should have scored in the first inning- Cushing fan nod. Cunningham walked. Kel ly went to first on Edwards' error Dobbins went to first hit by pitch er and the bases were full. Only quick infield work on the part of the Patterson Mills team shut them out Hayes went to first on a ground to shortstop forcing Cunningham out at home. , Davis flew out to rf and Rosemary went out with the bases full. Patter son Mills started off with a sin- irln fPurrell.) Towe lined out a short one and Kosemary made a double play (Hayes, Kelly and Cunningham.) Mosher fanned. In the second inning Rosemary put four runs across, thereby gaining a lead which proved im IKissible for the Patterson Mills team to overcome, box, Welsh and Johnson singled. Cushing took first on balls. Cunningham and ' Kelly singled. Dobbins went to first on fielders choice. Hayes singled. For the Patter son Mills Snotherly singled, but died trying to steal second. Fer rell singled, Taylor fanned. Edwards went to first hit by pitcher. The side went out with Edwards left on second when Fitts grounded out to third. The third, fourth, fifth and sixth innings were shut out for both sides. No hits were made on either side. Snotherly tan ned five Hayes four. In the seventh inning, the Pat terson Mills made its first score Ferrell's, on two singles, Fer rell's and Edward's and Kelly's error. Neither side scored in the eighth. In the ninth inning Rosemary was shut out and the Patterson M Us team put two runs across, on three singles and a couple of stolen bases. For a while it looked as if the score would be tied. For fuller particulars, re ference may be had to line-up given below: HON. ALBERT L. COX AdJresses Board ol Trade Tonight at People's Theatre The Board of Trade of Roa noke Rapids Township are in deed fortunate in having been able to get Albert L. Cox, Ex President of the Chamber of Commerce of Raleigh to make an address before them tonight. This address will be given in the People's Theatre at Roanoke Rapids and every man in the community is invited to attend this lecture, The lecture is for men only, admission is free and it is sincerely hoped that a large majority of the men in all of the towns will come out and hear this lecture. Mr. Cox has had not only ex perience but wonderful success in the work of building up a city. It was during his administration as President of the RaleighCham ber of Commerce that Raleigh made such wonderful strides in civic progress. Mr. Cox is, therefore, pecu liarly able to speak with author ity on the subject of boosting a community. His address will not only be a very interesting one, but will also, we feel sure, be a very instructive and bene ficial one. If any one is quali fied to offer helpful suggestions to the Board of Trade here it is Mr. Cox; During his stay here, Mr. Cox will be entertained at the home of Mr. John L Patterson. Attempt to Organize an Orches tra for Roanoke Rapids Messrs. Cherry and Robinson are trying to organize a five piece orchestra for Roanoke Rapids and vicinity and we un derstand they are about to suc ceed. They already have thret of the players and are now correspond ing with two professional orches tra players with a view to induce them to come here to live. Messrs. J. P. Robinson and Bro. have offered to ' give them orchestra work at the Peoples Theatre on any nights they do not have engagements elswhere. This i a great help, but unless some employment can be found in town for the two musicians needed, it is greatly feared the attempt will fall through. Mr. Cherry states that if he is successful in getting the two musicians in question, Roanoke Rapids will have an orchestra of which any town could bepround. Sunday concerts in the park are being discussed and if and orches tra can be organized, it will cer tainly be the means of affording much pleasure to the music lovers of the community. .
