In one of the most hotly contested
games that has been played on Berry
Field this season the base hospital
team went down to defeat before the
Base No. 54 outfit by a score of 8 to
3. A timely three-bagger by “Stand
Away Collier” gave the Crusaders a
lead which was never overcome, but
like a forest fire was seriously threat
ened. The game was replete with
many features a special one being a
catch made by the enemy’s left fielder
whose name the writer does not know
at the writing but as there was a chap
who played right field who looked and
dressed like him we will call them
the “Dolly Sisters.” Well, this Dolly
boy in left field just goes over and
spears one of Hoffman’s drives on the
edge of “No Man’s Cliff” and then to
cap the climax is forced over head
first with his “dogs” following it cer
tainly was well executed and was
applauded by the thousands present.
"Baron” Boudreau, “Bessie McCoy,”
“Hughes,” “White Wings” Craig and
“Stand Away” Collier played their
usual and consistent game. In the
fourth inning Dewey O’Connor laid on
a “cripple” and drove it for a “key
stone” past the outfielders for one of
the prettiest home runs of the sea
son. Dewey certainly tore around
those bases, reminding one of a com
muter tearing home with a pound
of sugar when said jewels were price
less, “Silent” Zecher, “Reveille” Cote,
“Foxy Fields,” “Sentinel” Hoffman
played their usual consistent game,
while “White Rolls” Townsend electri
fied the bleachers with his sliding to
bases. Manager “Doc” Rand was at
the park early detailing the mounted
police to the different entrances and
the capable way that the “immense”
throng was handled is a credit to his
foresight. It was also noted that
those who possessed tenor voices be
fore the game are now singing bass.
The boys certainly had a lot of pep.
WHO WAS WHO
NOTES OF THE GAME.
Sergeant Pidge was seen in the
grandstand before the game but was
forced to leave early.
Dewey O’Connor’s drive was a well
delivered “bust” and the spheroid just
trickled on its way.
The “Kelly Glove” is being re
charged with springs again.
Chef Zeisette played a good consist
ent game at the initial corner but he-
sure takes up a lot of room covering
the “coming in” side of the bag. Loos
en up, Chef, we are all fighting tor
the same cause.
Private Lewis for many years played
second base tor the Athol team and
was considered a reliable inflelder.
Private Otto Kramer was quite a
hookey player in his day and many a
contest has he won by his steady
Private Gannon played association
football before coming into the “Old
Man’s Army” and has taken part in
many a gruelling contest.
Private McNish in civil’ life was
quite an all-around swimmer and wa.s
quite proficient in the dashes.
Owing to the fact that the com
manding officer of Base Hospital No.
54, Colonel Page has decided to hold
lecture classes for that organization
two or three times daily, it has been
necessary to give up che idea of a
competitive track meet between them
and the members of the old detach
ment. It was suggested to several
members of Base No. 54 that the meet
be held in the evening when the men
would be at liberty, but that didn’t
seem to meet with their approval at
all. It is intimated that Base No. 54
is just as well pleased that the meet
proposition had to be abandoned since
they saw the old detachment was in
earnest about it and had settled down
to consistent training.
Private Jass Reynolds has played
football with several teams. ■ around
Connecticut, his name being on the
line-up of different outfits in the Nut

The entry of America into the
world’s great conflict saw a great
change in the athletic roster of the
great American universities, taking
the colleges big and small from the
Atlantic to the Pacific 'coast, the stars
of the different teams answered the
call to the colors. Take the “Big
Four” Yale, Harvard, Princeton and
Pennsylvania. What a great change
has come over these institution.s of
learning. No more do we read about
how “Dick Merriwell” kicked a field
goal in the closing minutes of the last
half and was borne off the field midst
the cheers of the enthusiastic throng.
All is gone now until the dove of peace
flies again and the world is made sate
for democracy. The football season
last fall without the Yale and HarvaM
was like a mint julep without the
mint. True there were a number of
important games but they didn’t seem
to have the thrill and kick that this
big “Jam” furnishjes. The gay crowds
on a golden leaf November afternoon
being whirled or else walking out to
the arena the bevy of pretty girls with
their escorts laughing and chatting
gaily was as musical as a marriage
bell. And what a roar when the glad
iators came out onto the field it fairly
made your nerves tingle with excite
ment. But now all this is gone we are
at war with a nation that threatens
our liberty. The boys are at the
front fighting so that we may live and
not until they come back with victory
inscribed on their banners will we see
the scenes that reminded us of “Idle
Days in Patagonia.” So Mr. Dream
Man when peace once more comes we
know you will bring back those days
of mirth and melody, when the harvest
moon shone down upon a liberty and
Premier Private Dalquist, the effi
cient manager of the base hospital
team, has hit the trail for New Haven
and the Hoffbrau. While he is gone
“Doc” Rand will pilot the destinies of
the team. “Dal” has certainly taken
hold of his work with lots of pep and
his energy is to be congratulated. He
is always on the alert for anything in
this line a pilot’s job is far from be
ing pleasant. So here’s hoping his
leave of absence will be well spent.
SLID TOO FAR.
Private A. J. Kelly is now resting
in Ward 0-6, nursing an infected hip
which he received whilep laying base
ball. Kelly in attempting to steal,
fell on the same hip three times in
one game. Although not serious, the
bruise is very painful and he will be
obliged to take things easy for a few
