The sport is coming into wide
popularity throughout the coun

for North Wilkesboro through
an entertainment company that
has donkeys trained to play ball
and not to play ball, depending
upon their disposition on the
spur of the moment.
Some of the animals are un
ruly and promotors stated today
that one of the wildest had been
given the name “Mae West,”
while one of the most blatant
ed “Huey Long.” The players
and donkeys can be differentiat
ed because of the fact that-the
player Is "suBPOsed to be” m

thorltles of the game,
Anything can- happen in a
donkey basebsll game. A pleyer
may knock one out of the lot on

in two feet of first base. Then it
Is that the player must use 1»1»
power of persuasion in some
form or other. The same may ap

fielder has trouble In mastering
hts animal while the hatter calm
