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 next crew. 0 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. 0 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. “Manager Snowie.” 33 8 0 6 53 61 1925 Catawba 0 i low-down on the big time: GROZER THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY j !

T. 95 (Continued on Page 4) “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. 0 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 Heel state. 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 front. 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. Now in regard to our coming con- MARS HILL BUS LINE MARS HILL, N. C. L«»t« Mar. Hill 7:30 and 10:00 A. M. 1:00 and 4:00 P. M. Laavc.
