The base hospital team was defeat
ed by the Fourth Regimental team at
Weam Field on Saturday. The score
was 11 to 3 and was caused no doubt
by our boys being unaccustomed to
the new field. It seemed that they
were attacked with a case of stage
fright, as the usual heavy hitting o”
the team was missing. They also
fielded in very poor style, eight errors
being chalked up against them. An
other game is in tnhe works at the
present time and we all hope for a
reversal of form. Barth, Craig and
Zecha stood out as the shining light of
the team. Jewell on first, played a
wonderful game for the Fourth team.

Among the records of the athletes
at Camp Greene, Sgt, Nickerson holds
one of the most enviable. Nick,” as
a “has been,” is not surpassed by
‘Matty” or the “Iowa Parmer” when
it comes to being a star. While a
student at Rickel Institute, “Nick'
earned his letter in three branches,
baseball, basketball and football. In
addition to being a member of the
varsity teams in these branches ot
athletics, he served two years as cap
tain of the basketball and baseball
Pvt. Cy Green was for many years
a leading soccer played with Alabama
Thistles and his services were always
Well, We got tripped up. Better luck
“Dad” Craig caught a beautiful
game, besides getting two hits.
Zecha, of course, got his customary
hits, two this time.
We admit the Fourth has a dandy
team, but we fully convinced that we
can still beat them. Another game is
in the works.
An item of amusement was the
jeering of “Hug” Lange by the Weach-
erites. It sort of got his goat, too.
Joe Lawlor was on the bench. Ho
wanted to go in as a pinch hitter but
didn’t have on a suit, so he was
This party Jewell, seems destined
for faster company. He is a wonder
at first base, and it seems that he
towered way above the other players,
although they were all good.
