Braves vs. Martins
The Cardinals tightened their hold
on first place yesterday by turning
back the latent Dodgers, 7-3, in a bat
tle for first place honors. The defeat
shoved the Dodgers back into third
place, as the idle Martins moved in
to second position. In this afternoon's
game the Dodgers can go back into
second place by merely whipping the
Martins This contest is being played
today since it was rained out last
The Cards spotted the losers three
runs in the first frame of yesterday's
fracas, and then proceeded to shut
them out during the remainder of the
contest, as they out-hit and out
bunted the "bums". A couple of
"youngsters", James Manning and
Paul Bailey featured the play of the
Cards, Manning getting two hits on
three trips and driving in three runs
while the Metropolitan insurance
agent hit twice on two official trips,
sacrificing on his other time at bat.
Oswald Stalls pitched well for the
league leaders, as he did not allow
more than one hit per inning after
the first, when the Dodgers gather
ed half of theirs for three runs The
Cards also pulled a couple of snap
py double plays.
A couple of old reliables, Captain
Jack Manning and Haywood "Pet
tus" Wynne, led the defeated Dodg
ers in their future effort, each get
ting two for three, the latter's dou
ble accounting for two of the three
runs scored by them.

The edge still seems to be in bat

softball loop, as the league produces
a bountiful crop of sluggers. Could
it be the batters' prowess over the

Since there were so many players
wUh juicy battnig averages, the
league statistician decided to in
crease the "Big Ten" to fifteen, so
as to include some that would have
been just below the border-line.
Players who have been to bat offi
cially as many as 22 times are includ
ed in this release, which covers all
games played through lust week.
Dillon Cobb continues to drive out
hits offensively and to rob others
of hits defensively, and%leads the
league with a robust mark of .591.
Roger Critcher, the Cardinal lead
off man, who got at least five hits all
last season, is the other player hit
ting over .500, being in second place
with .542. The league-leading Cards
have^Tour others in the select cir
cle, and one of them, Parson Zack
Piephoff, leads the league in runs
scored, with an even dozen.
Each team has at least three rep

the Braves and Cardinals having
played one game more than the oth

Braves Are Shut-out
By Hardy's Martins
Friday Afternoon 6-0
The cellar-dwelling Braves took
it on the chin Friday when they were
the victims of the first shut out of
the season, as John Hardy hurled
six-hit ball to become the first pitch
er to whitewash the opposition. Only
two of the Braves reached second
base and they died there, naturally.
Both teams started the game with
only nine players, but ere the con
test was over one more Martin had
drifted in to give them a full line
up while the Braves struggled it out
with their usual number, nine.
The Martins scored once in the
first as Kimball drew life on a field
er's choice, went to third on an er
ror and scored on "Judge Landis"
Grimes' single, and they added an
other in the third on Deacon Cobb's
double and a single by Tez Green.
With enough runs already scored to
win, the Martins insured victory by
bursting forth with a salvo of base
hits to score four times in the fifth.
Billy Peele opened with a single.
Cobb singled, the Braves kicked in
with a couple of wild throws. Green
singled. Grimes doubled and went
to third on a slow pick-up by the
outfielder and Preacher Hardy sin
gled to create the above-mentioned
four and final tallies.
The Braves muffed their best scor
ing opportunity in the second, when
after Bunting had opened with a
single and went to second tin a wild
pitch, Hurley singled and then the
next three batters popped out. The
losers were the victims of one of the
few double plays seen this season,
as the Martins executed a fast one
in the third. Hardy faced only 25
men in the seven inning contest.
Bernard Hurley was the only
Brave getting more than one hit, as
he hit safely twice and walked in
his three appearances at the plate,
for a perfect day. The Martins were
placed in their attack by Dillon
Cobb, who batted .750 to further
boost his league batting lead. The
Deacon had three for four. Cortez
Green and Co-captain Grimes were
the next biggest guns, each getting
two for four.

Outlook For Pullet Crop
Bright In North Carolina
C. F. Parrish, Extension poultry
man, says indications arc that 20 to
25 per cent more pullets will go in
to the laying house this year than
last. Farmers will remember, too,
that the number last year was well
above the 1940 figure. Two factors
have been responsible for this: a de
sire on the part of the farmer to
help out in the war effort by sup
plying more eggs and higher prices
for the eggs. Another factor is a

FOR SIMPLE PEANUT PICKER
Scores of Ntnth Carolina Farmers
have patriotically grown one or two
acres of peanut this year to help sup
ply the vital vegetable oils needed
to win the war. Dr. E. K. Collins,
would be proud to witness but a

A copy of our petition and some of

turn their hogs into the peanut
David S Weaver, State College
agricultural engineer, announces
that the extension service has pre
pared a plan for a small home-made
peanut picker. A blueprint and full
directions for building. this simple
harvesting device will be sent free to
farmers upon request to their coun
ty farm agents.
The home-made peanut picker is
a large bottomless box with a wide
mesh wire over the top and hard
ware cloth as a bottom." Weaver ex
plained. "The peanuts are passed ov
er the top wire by hand, with the
peanuts being pulled off by the w ire.
The small-mesh hardware cloth in
the bottom permits the dirt and sand
to pass through, but retains the nuts.
The equipment may be provided with
legs, or may be put on two carpen
ter's saw horses."
Because of the labor involved in
picking peanuts by this method, the
agricultural engineer says this equip

farmer who grows more than one
or two acres of peanuts.
"Don't hog down your peanuts this
year," urges Dr. Collins. The Unit
ed Nations need all the vegetable oils
they can obtain due to the loss of
imports from the Far East. It is the
patriotic duty of ?'V.M-v North f ir,

his peanut production for oil."
