Tin above isa summary of last Sunday's game at (irenville. as near ly as we couliL' gather it from wit ncsAeii. I The day waj cold and windy, and the diamond was in the rough. Ev erybody had tin off day and there were many ntkisiial happenings. For instance, Mcllnrguc, first man up in the first inning, knouked the first bull pitched for a homo run. Then again, a GrenVille man hit a ground er smacked one down thru the in field, which went on out thru the outfield and scampered into the tall and uncut, after threo players had failed lo stop it. The fortunate hit ler got. four (sacks on it. Then once more, one of) Clayton's sluggers land ed on one. knocking it to left field. The left Holder got under it and stumbled at tile same instant, which made a disastrous coincidence. The lml I landed oiKhis head and knocked him out, Tlioxyoungslor. however, soon recovered vand rinished the game. Dutch Snedeger was out of the ramo on account, at the snikiiiL- two weeks ago and fohnslouo was re ceiving Smoky's fast ones. Owing to the disagreebulo weather, however. loe was not us effective as usual, aim we i icu 11; i. iiiiu iiexi Mllliiay the story will' he vastly different, and much more to our liking, witli a good day and a good diamond and Dutch back in the game. The (iren ville gang comes down here flush with victory, anil feeling that they will carry away tho bacon. They have lost only one game this season. However, the Clayton Grays have a hunch that Grenvillo is all wrong. Hardy Kerr is back and will be in Ihe local lineup. With possibly an other now man. The game starts at i-M, and it's bouijd lo be a good one. OKf.MttTIO.V DAY PROCLAMATION SOLDIERS GAR reiújcrs.
