Quicksteps Win On
Sunday afternoon the Williamston
Quicksteps, local colored semi-pro
organization trounced Princeville's
Grays, 8-6, on foreign soil. Owner
Charlie Mack Johnson and Mose
Williams collaborated in pitching the
The Grays grabbed a 2-1 lead in
the fourth off Owner Johnson, but
at this point Johnson exited and Wil
liams held them in check over the
rest of the route as the locals quick
ly stepped into the lead on barrages
in the sixth and seventh stanzas.
?fOng-rtear'advantage ttr the Quicfc
steps was their invaluable umpire,
Lugene Bell, whose stellar work on
the bases pulled them from many
a bad hole.
Manager Horace Respass also did
well by poling two of Williamston's
nine hits while the two Quickstep
rlbowers were spreading five hits
nmnr.g as many players. No record of
the errors was retained, but it is un
derstood that it would have made
Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock
the Grays will return the visit and
it is reported by reliable quarters,
with blood in their eyes. But Man
ager Respass has been preparing
for the invasion, and the anonymous
lefthander, who Owner Johnson says
he knows on sight, but for the sake
of him cannot think of his name, will
pitch. Having lost only one gams
and ah owing great improvement, it
is as Respass says, "Me and my boys
on the Quicksteps, like the Martins,
art he ad ad for the top."

NOTICE OF SALE
Under and by virtue of the power
of sale contained in that certain deed
of trust dated January 2, 1930, ex- i
ecu ted by Augustus Moore to S. C.
Bragaw and recorded in the office
of the Register of Deeds of Martin
County in Book B-3, page 316 (the
undersigned having been substitut
ed as trustee in the place of the said
S. C Bragaw) I will sell before the
eourthouse door of Martin County
In League Rating
When that estimated million dol
lar rain hit Martin and surrounding
counties, the WTTliainatoa baseball
club was forced to remain idle by
the epidemic of wet grounds which
swept eastern Carolina. However, by
virtue of the Martins' recent winning
streak while Greenville's Green tea
and several other second division
clubs have been hitting the skids,
the locals are now in a aoch more
advantageous position in regard to
an opportunity for a post season play
Yesterday, the Martins reclining
on the cellar, plagrmg at a 359 clip,
just three and one-half games be
hind Greenville, eight behind Snow
Hill and New Bern, who are dead
locked for the fifth position, were
but 11 and 1 -2 games behind the
fourth place Kinston Eagles.
This year the Coastal Plain league
boasts a 128 game schedule, of which
78 contests have already been play
ed by the local club. To end the sea
son with the 300 average that will
probably be necessary for a berth
in the playoffs, the Martins will
have to win at least 36 of the fifty
remaining scheduled games Such
actum would represent a 720 aver
age for the remainder of the season
and would allow the once downtrod
den Martins to end the year with a
64-64 record. Though .720 far sur
passes the .684 at which Wilson's
league leading Tubs have been play
nV-throughout the season, it would
nut be in the realm of an impossi
bility for the Martins to come
through and you can lay your bot
tom dollar they'll be in there fight
ing toward just that end.
