SPORT BRIEFS
Pul you know that the Rosemary
Bascoes won the Textile League
championship? And that the cup will
'•eside over in the Rosemary Manu
facturing Company’s office in the
near future.
That although the Junior team lost
out in the state finals it afforded the
town note public’-y than it has re
ceived in all its High School sports
and that the kids ought to he praised
instead of ragged because there is an
other year coming and there are plen
ty of kid ball players in the two towns
that can really play ball.
Just Like An Ostrich
A medical authority says that ft
person who trie3 to oover up skin
blemishes and pimples with toilet
creams and powders is just as foolish
as an ostrich that buries its head in
the sand to avoid danger. Skin erup
tions are nature’s warning that con
stipation is throwing poisons into your
blood stream and weakening your whole
constitution. Remove the constipated
condition and you will strengthen your
system against disease ana chaa.1 up
your disfigured skin. The best way to
do this is with a course of Herbine, tha
vegetable medicine that acts natur
ally and easily, which you can get at
Taylor’s Drug Store, Rosemary, N. C.
| That the people in astonia said we
had the finest, cleanest bunch of kid
sports that had ever played in their
town ? And shouldn't we be proud of
that ? The kids that walk the streets
today ar eth emerchants, the com
munity builders, the citizens of to
morrow.
That Slagels Lake boasts one of the
fastest semi-pro teams in Virginia?
And that the Textile League All Stars
will have to throw some dust to come
out on top.
If you want to see a hard working
| baseball player watch Wilmer Out
iar.d. who does the catching for the
Laseoes.
Our pick for an all league team:
B. Edmondson, catcher; Crowder, Car
roll and Johnson, pitchers; M. Shear
in. lb; Lester Edmondson, lb: J. Ed
mondson, ss; Birdson. 3b; Ryals, If;
Ferrell cf and Outland, rf. Beat it
if you can.
Did you know' that George Murray
was one of the greatest fishermen in
town? If you don’t believe it ask the
people in Bay view.

Littleton. N\ C. Aug 6th, 1930.
Roanoke Herald.
Roanoke Rapids, N. C.,
Dear Sir:
I have not contributed any n?ws
a rticles to your pnppr before this,
but hope you will publish this one.
Why did the Rosemary Bascoes not
play Littleton Wednesday? The Lit
tleton ball club kr. >\vn as the Littleton
Blues journeyed to Fosemary last
Wednesday and defeated the Rose
mary Bascoes in a fair, clean and
wholesome baseball game, the score
being 8 to 1 in favor of Littleton. The
■sme team from Rosemary had prom
ised to play Littleton in a return game
at Littleton on Wednesday, Aug. 6th,
but for some unknown reason the
team from Rosemary failed to show
up. What is the reason why they did
not show up in Littleton? The whole
town is asking the question. Is it be
cause the manager has a poor mem
ory, because they could not' stand
defeat again, because they were not
good enough sports to stick to their
agreement made three weeks ago, or
was it because they could not get
nine men in the whole, town to plav
ball ?
The manager had got all the busi
ness houses in Litcleton to close so
that he could probably be able to give
the Bnscoes a little more than seven
dollars. That is all that Littleton
got out of the big crowd that the
manager of the Bascoes promised the
Littleton teanv
Owing to some reason unknown to
the people of Littleton the team fail
ed to show up at the proper time, the
team at Littleton feels as though they
are entitled to a forfeited game. Thus
ends our story. Littleton defeated the
Rosemary Bascces in a forfeited game
9 to 0.
