The Lions are working hard these
days trying to get some of that bad
baseball out of their systems, and
they are getting prepared to win a
few games. They are still smarting
under that 9-4 drubbing handed them
by Coach Baird’s Farm School Ag-
1 gies. Base knocks are raining like
1 bird shot in the practice games and
the hitters seem to be hitting their
stride. Come on, gang, let’s sink this
Smoky Joe Bradley, veteran slow-
ball pitcher from last year’s corps of
twirlers, is back in harness again and
is tossing for “C.” The April sun
is fast ironing the wrinkles out of
his arm. “Smoky” is a former twirler
from the Buzzard Town Trotters
from Shangankle, Missouri.
Everyone seems scared to make
any league suggestions; so the writer
will make one himself. Here’s the
tests on the diamond, which will be
very difficult as the schedule shows,
let’s begin right. Win or lose, we
can feel better if we, rooters and
team, have put our best into the
struggle. If our team is properly
backed we will not lose. The score
book does not show victory every
time. We wish that everyone would
fall in line and do his very best.
All who believe in what I have said
and are willing to gack our team let
me see you at the coming games.

“Baldy” Riddle is leading the en
tire club in hitting, having made his
appearance at the bat only one time
■in the role of-a pinch hitter. He park
ed a hefty two-b^gger into the right
field bleachers and then passed out
of the picture trying to steal.
There are a good many native Tar
Heels now on the payroll of the big
time clubs. Garland Braxton, port-
sider, who led the American League
in effectiveness in 1928, puts his feet
under the table of the Washington
Senators. He hails from the Old
North State. Then there is Vic Sor
rell, old Wake Forest star, wearing a
Detroit uniform. Stanly Harris has
placed him among the regular Tiger
hurlers for the coming season. Lack
of space forbids naming them all,
but there is one that must be men
tioned. He is Alvin Crowder of the
St. Louis Browns. He led the junior
circuit last year in games won, chalk
ing up 21 victories against 6 defeats.
Not bad for the reputation of the Tar
Racking Our Tearn
This thing of backing a team is
very easy and yet it is a milestone on
the road to victory. Anyone can and
will if he is interested in the welfare
of his particular school. It is not a
case of the most adept. Of course.
I’ll admit that some can do more than
others for a team. Nevertheless, at
this game everyone can take part.
Moreover, it is the duty of every stu
dent at Mars Hill or at any other col
lege. A student who does not feel it
his duty to back a team that is rep
resenting his school in any phase of
work is not loyal to his Alma Mater.
Our team for the past year has
been supported very well. We could,
however, have had better support, but
we will not kick if its continues in the
present baseball season. I’m sure that
every student at Mars Hill will join
heartily in and push our boys to the
Anyone who can rally and support
a team—winning or losing—is a man.
I mean one who does not have a yel
low streak down his back. To sup
port a winning team is easy, but to i
back a losing team is not so easy. 1
Only those who have a sense of loy- I
alty can stick with a team through
thick and thin. So, boys and girls,
let’s give our team our best.
