Champions of
Northern Mich.
E!j. II. S. Wins Baseball Hon
ors By Defeating Traverse City.
The East Jordan High School added
another honor to its long string gather
ed in this year when the Northern
Michigan Baseball Championship was
cinched with last Saturday's game with
Traverse City, which the local boys
copped 7 to 4. East Jordan has had an
uninterrupted list of victories on the
baseball diamond this spring, having
defeated one or more times high school
teams of Charlevoix, Central Lake,
Boyne City, Mancelona, and Traverse
City. Last Saturday's game came as
climax to a most successful season.
The Traverse City team had also played
winning ball, having lost but one game
that to Manistee. Later on, however,
Manistee had been badly defeated by
Traverse City.
On Friday the Traverse City team
had defeated Boyne City 29 to 7 and
they came over to East Jordan Friday
night as confident as world's champions.
No doubt their over confidence instilled
the necessary determination which the
local boys needed for the final fray.
Gunderson, who has pitched phenom
enal ball for East Jordan High for the
past three years, was in rare form, and
made the heavy hitters from Traverse
City cut deep gashes in the air with
disconcerting regularity. Seventeen
men were thus forced to walk up to
the plate, then turn around and walk
back again.
Four hundred rabid fans from East
Jordan, Boyne City and other neighbor
ing places were on hand and were un
animous in rooting for the local players
Boyne City came over with a host of
The Traverse City team was a far
heavier team and an older team than
East Jordan's. Yet, in no department
of the game except in fielding, did the
visiting boys excel.
Traverse City got one score in the
first, two in the second, and one in the
third inning. Not one run was an
eaoned run, but all were costly and
neeiless errors on the part of two East
Jordan infielders. True it was that
Traverse City got four hits in the first
three rounds but not one should have
counted in the scoring. These hits, by
the way, were due to a fungo bat used
by Traverse City, which was thrown
out by the umpire at the beginning of
the fourth. Gunderson's speed and
curves were too much for them when
a legal, regulation bat was required
and thereafter nobody got around the
Zimmerman, the six foot Traverse
City pitcher, was not worked on the
previous day and came into town with
a reputation announced by his mates
sufficient to disrupt the hearts of
stronger men than wore suits for East
Jordan. When the game was ended,
however he had been found for thir
teen hits, and he was able to strike
out but four East Jordan players.
Traverse City objected to one deci
sion on first base, but both umpire and
spectators near first base maintained
that the Traverse City first baseman's
foot was off the bag when he caught
the ball.
The game was hard fought and was
Mil of tense and nerve-racking situa
tions. The East Jordan boys appreciate the
splendid support given them by the
people of East Jordan.

certainly should be complimented on
the splendid work they did. Penin

was duly observed and Grange closed
in due form, after which a plate supper
was servtd and all enjoyed a social
good time.

Church Meeting
Is Broken Up
Opponents of Proposed School
Amendment Halt Talk.
The advertised lecture on the propos"
ed anti-parochial school amendment at
the Evangelical church, Petoskey, Fri
day evening was broken up by obpon
ents of the proposed amendment when
they threatened violence to the speak
er, James Hamilton, Detroit, and forced
him to halt his talk and leave the buil
ding. After leaving the building in
company with an officer he was assault
ed with a shower of eggs, etc., and
hastily left the city by automobile.
Efforts were made by several per
sons in the church to quiet the mob
and give the man a chance to complete
his talk and then allow an opportunity
for opponents of the proposed amend
ment to be heard, but these were of no
avail. Several leaders among the op
ponents of the proposed measure were
present and preparing notes from
which later to delive their talks.
The speaker is alleged to have said
that any person not educated in the
public schools could not be one hun
dred per cent American, and at this
point trouble began.
People crowded to the front of the
church and yelled for the speaker to
be removed. Ho was escorted to a
side door by an officer, who ordered
the crowd to refrain from molesting
Once outside the church, it is said,
eggs and tomatoes were hurled at
Hamilton as he made for an automobile
near at hand.
A similar occurrence happened at
Cheboygan Tuesday evening, except
that the affair did not take place in a
church. In that city the speaker at
tempted to talk at the city opera house.

Township Day
In South Arm
Chaddock AndRanncy Are Win
ners. Motto: No Steps Backward'
An all day program was enjoyed by
the patrons and children of the schools
of South Arm township at the South
Arm Grange Hall, June I, 1921. Four
schools took part, namely: Ranney,
Rock Elm, Miles and Chaddock.
While the judges of the wall exhibits
were busily engaged with the inside
work the crowd was outdoors enjoying
the athletic contest between different
A greater school spirit could not have
been shown. Several yells were given
by the various schools. The numbers
on the athletic program were girl's
running race, boy's running race, po
tato race, over and under relay, hand
kerchief race and rope pulling contest.
Mr. Murphy, chairman of the outdoor
races, and the other members of the
board of judges counted the points and
found that Mrs. Margaret Burns, teach
er of the Ranney school was entitled to
the First Place banner, Irene Boyle,
teacher of the Rock Elm school Second
place hanner. and Mrs. Esther Miles,
teacher of the Miles school the Third
Place banner.
After the races a well arranged pot
luck dinner was served by the ladies.
It was served cafeteria style and every
one enjoyed a hearty meal.
After dinner an adult outdoor pro
gram of races was indulged in with
great interest. Most of the races were
between the men and women. The
grinning contest produced great fun
and merriment. This seemed to be
the only race in which the men stood
any show at all. The board of judges
decided the men's grin to be the longer.
About four o'clock the crowd enter
ed the hall to listen to a program in
which each school took part in drills,
songs, dialogues and recitations. Sadie
Murphy, the 8th grade valedictorian of
South Arm township and also of the
county, gave a very well constructed
oration on the motto "No Steps Back

Next came the decision of the judges
on the year's work or wall exhibits.
Miss Liskum, chairman of the judges
came forward with the 1st, 2nd and 3rd
place banners. The eyes of the crowd
rested on them and the holder for a
few minutes until Miss Liskum gave
the report.
The First Place bauner was given to
Jannie Franseth, teacher of the Chad
dock school. The Second Place ban
ner was given to Mrs. Margaret Burns,
teacher of the Ranney school. The
Third Place banner was given to Mrs.
Esther Miles, teacher of the Miles
Last came the presentation of diplo
mas to the 8th grade graduates by
Miss Stewart, who also gave a short
talk. The prpgram was closed by
singing America.
Flag Day
By The Governor.
The observance of Flag Day is of
comparatively recent origin and seems
to have been begun in the state of
New York. The custom, however, has
spread until practically every state in
the Union has adopted it.
Honoring the flag means to honor
the principles for which the flag stands,
liberty, justice and equality. These
are the foundation stones of the' Re
public. So long as these great princi
ples are really respected and honored
in the hearts of the people our govern
ment is safe. Our free institutioni
will weather any storm that may beat
upon them.
Therefore, by virtue of the authority
vested in me as Governor of the State
of Michigan, I hereby proclaim Tues
day, June 14, 1921, Flag Day.
Let flags be displayed on both public
and private buildings; and I request
that community exercises appropriate to
the day be held wherever practicable.
Given under my hand and the Great
Seal of the State this Second Day of
June, in the year of our Lord one
