- ;J S-'.i ■ -I :I1 m TOTAL OF 10 TEAMS NOW PLAYING IN INTER-MILL SOFTBALL GAMES The men in several Fieldcrest plants are finding fun and relaxation in the recently inaugurated inter-mill softball games. The unofficial league grew out of the interest and efforts of Cyril Hudgins, Rayon Mill foreman, and Harry Hudgins, canteen man at the Leaksville plants. The brothers formed softball teams at their respective locations and chal lenged one another. Since that time games have been played several nights a week at the newly lighted softball field at Leaksville Y. M. C. A. and at Spray Recreation Park. A total of 10 teams are participating. The Karastan has three: two from the Weave Room and one from the Shipping and Designing. The Bedspread has three: one from the first shift, one from the second shift and a team from the Spinning Department. The Rayon has two teams. The Finishing Mill and Spray Cotton Mills have plant teams. Team rankings change so rapidly that it was not practical to publish up-to- date standings.
