R-R-R’S HAVE BIG WEEK !
TEAM WINS 3; DROPS 1 Local Club Takes Two From Henderson, One From Littleton and Loses First Game of Season to Weldon Henderson Beaten 9 to 2 The Henderson team, built from Weldon to Wake Furtst, presented the best aggregation of college hall players that have yet been seen on the local dia mond. The locals, however were easily able to overcome the two run lead in the first inning which resulted from Hill Holding’s swat over the left field fence while Andrews was on the bases as .’n; result of an error. The 3-R outfit scored in the 3rd, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th with, the bulk of score coining in the big 7th. The lead of locals was suf ficient in the eighth for Mgr. Towe to send Dempster in to hit for English in order to keep in focus the eye of the best hitting pitcher in several states. Candy Ball Smith was "in there” all the time at third base, and Sanderson, in addition to pit ching great ball, was conspicuous for the style in which he rieldtd his position. J. D. Johnson and H. Johnson each registered three hits out of five times at hat, one of H. Johnson's being his usual circuit clout over left field fence. The real outstanding feature of the game was the sdtady hit ting of Bob Correll who got credit for four hits out of five chances, one being a home run, and the chance that failed a pure case of robbery when the right fielder of tile Henderson Club snatched a long hard chance off the fence in deep right center.

Wednesday, Weldon at Weld-.n It) a. m. Weldon at Rosemary Park ot 4 p. m. Weldon 5 Tripple R’s 1 Weidon gained a five to one decision over the K-R R club in the Weldon sandlot last Monday afternoon. This was the first de feat of .the season for the home club and it came rather bitter at the hands of the Weldon Semi pro. Lightening Smith seems to have been the chief factor in the downfall of the Triple R's. He pitched a wicked game for Wel don, and had not Everette Spikes taken one mighty slam for a cir cuit ride in the seventh, the R-R R team would have gone score less. The Wf.troR aggregation start •ed r"- a whirlwind. Fcur hits coufr-^e _ . two errors on the R-R-R mlield enabled her to chalk down five runs in the init ial frame. After this first inning Dempster tightened up, the in field steadied itself, and Weldon blew only as a light breeze for the remaining eight innings. Triple R 000 000 100 Weldon 500 000 OOx Dempster and Johnson Smith and Crofton Candy Ball Smith Hands Littleton a Defeat In order to save both Sander son and Dempster for the speedy Cops from Norfolk, whom we meet both today and tomorrow, manager Towe sent Candy Hall Smith to the mound to face the Littleton batters. Although they garnered eleven hits otf his de livery, Candy kept them well scattered and was not in danger at any time after the sixth. Lit tleton began to make things look interesting in the third when Marker led otf with a single. went to second on Harrison s sacrifice, and was pushed across the rubber by successive hits by Thorne and Andrews. Candy tightened up at this juncture and the Littletonites were unable to taste his offerings until hp began to rest easy under a five rnn lead. In the sixth after Spikes had grounded out, third to first. .1 I'. Johnson, Turner and Dempster secured singles off Barker. In the eagerness to score Johnson was sent off third and was caught in a chase. However Harvey Johnson again loaded the bases hy driving out another [single. English realized his gold den opportunity and touched | Barker up for a triple which sent in the three men on bases. In j the next inning Spikes put the i game on ice by polling out a ho mer with Towe and Correll on i bases. In the ninth Eogleman I of Littleton knocked an easy sin gle to right field which got lost in the bushes and weeds and he st’etched it into a four bagger.

Some Interesting results have been obtained by J. Paul Vlsscher In his study of the fouling of ships’ bottoms. These results indicate that the color of the paint used Is an Important factor In determining the amount of fouling. Plates painted with different color* were exposed In sea water at the Beau fort laboratory and the development of the growths was observed over a pe riod of several months. The plates wore Identical, except for the color used, und since all factors Influencing them were the same, It may be con cluded that any difference In the amount or the nature of fouling was dependent on color. These colors in clude white, black, yellow, red. green | and blue. Hie results show clearly that tnere was much more fouling on the dark i plates than on those with lighter col* or*. The contrast between the white and black plates was especially | marked. Barnacles, which constitute a large percentage of the totRl amount of fouling, were especially affected by | color. They were found only on the blue and black plates and were more i abundant on the black. Hydroids were also practically confined to the dark , plates. I The results are apparently explained | by the fact that at the time of at tachment of the larvae to these forms ! the organisms are negatively photo ! graphic, that Is. they tend to go away from the source of light. Tills experl | ment is In accord with observations made on the growth on ships' bottoms where the densest growths are found In regions least exposed to light, rhe notes and tentative conclusions are at i present based on a limited amount of evidence, and It Is expected that the ! problem will be more thoroughly In vestl gated through experiments hi which many of the loss-known factor* I may be more definitely controlled.— Fisheries Service Bulletin.

C PEOPLE who are intimately acquainted with physicians know that charges are made very low to those whose resources are limited and that much free service is given those in need. It is in much the same spirit that the respon sible funeral director serves the family whose income is limited. Where the funeral arrangements are left largely to his judgment it is common practice to provide suitable accessories that will not run to great expense, and to disregard the item of overhead and profit in making his charges. How much free service he gives ' without letting the right hand know what the left hand doeth” only those very close to him understand. Funeral directors welcome the co-operation of the public in discouraging rfeedless expense for the sake of show.
