The L’livistiau iiiiie went oa a, little
trip do'wn-statc the otliei- day and tlame
luek decreed tliat tifty-iifty would bj
its lueU. The team liad just emerged
from a fovere drubbing at the hands
of Duke’s team. Tnrloubtedly this de
feat came in tiio wake of a soared
team’s uiu-alled tor inuffles.
But wlieii they ,1‘aced tlie Davidsou
Wildcat they settlei down to the busi-
I ness of playing base i»all. TJie garni-
^ was featured l>y the 8tealy and sur'.‘
backing up tlie Kluu nine gave to the
SJiiue l)rand of pitciiing. Both ])ircher>
were up to form and seemed to be nms-
ters of the situation. This is evidenced
by the few hits made by )>oth team>;
aud by the fact that neither , toan'
eanjcd a run. Tlic Wildcats were cred
i ited with an earned run, but a run made
1 01) balls is not earned.
:♦ The main feature of tlie game was a
' liomt- run by “Red’’ rrntchfiold. That
^vns a sweet hit.
This ^lame finally ended with l-^lon

boys played as hard here as they did at
