lowing a double defeat at the
hands of fourth place Beaufort,

Johnson was hit by a pitch, took
second on a wild pilch, and scored
on Tom Benton's triple.
Swansboro, ii contrast to Beau
fort's wastefulness, made the most
of very skimpy leavings

on one hit. Hatchell opened with
a long two-baser and took third
when Stanley got a life on the

many opportunities, Beaufort hit
into three double plays, two of
them catching men at the plate
trying to score on fly balls. Three
men were picked off oi the base
paths by the pitcher, and several
others were eliminated in smart

this, Beaufort managed to leave
six men stranded on base, most of

Sportsfishing OH Coast
Shows Recent Improvement
Since the recent rough seas
which preceded a hurricane that
passed the' Carteret coast by,
sportsfishing generally has shown
considerable improvement. Since
the "hurricane scare" two sailfish
have been taken, bringing the total
for this species to be landed off
the Carteret coast during 1948 to
three. It the meantime dolphin
and amberjack are being taken in
larger quantities and larger sizes
than at anytime so far this year.
Inshore fishing for trout and other
species too, is above the average.

Three more runs in the next in

and a base hit by Jack Gardner

Things were temporarily sna
