The visitors dis played a hard hitting ball club, which slugged out 10 hits, but Elon connect ed for nine of their own and added some fancy base running to lead from the first inning on. Three :nitchers were on the hill for Elon and showed signs of better things to come, although all weakevied momentarily. Frank Roberts twi'-led the first three innings, C. K. Siler the middle trio, and “Old Bobo” And erson finished up. Siler racked up a pair of strike out victims, while And erson also whiffed two.

Dick York also banged out two bingles, while Steve Walker, Ed Ellis, Sonny Griggs, ami Lou Savini also had hits. These added up with a variety of walks, had the sacks cluttered most of the time and had three Akron pitchrs in difficulty throughout. B.
