Due to the death of Charles E.
Plea.sants in Aberdeen, the scheduled
baseball game between Southern Pines
and Aberdeen on Wednesday after
noon was postponed. No definite play
off date has been set.
Last Saturday afternoon the West
End outfit racked up its third straight
win over Southern Pines by n 6-3
count as Coy Thomas, after a shaky
start, again proved invincible.
In the first frame Southern Pines
punched out three hits for as many
runs. W’ebster’s trible was the declin
ing blow in the rally. But in the fifth
the home boys jumped on West, new
Southern Pines hurler, for four runs
and added another in the sixth. Mil
lar hurled the last three frames.
The locals made nine hits off the
league's star hurler, a total of more
than they have made in three pre
vious games against him, but could
not score after the opening chukker.
Coy’s strikeout ball was working and
claimed fourteen victims. West End
made only eight hits, but wfldness on
the part of both local hurlers' gave
them aid.
Last Friday afternoon Vass pulled a
surprise by swamping the second-
place Aberdeen team 15 to 4. Both
teams were minus several of their
regulars and had to fill in with
school boys. But Howard Callahan
was one of the Vass players and their
ace right-hander pitched nice ball in
spite of wobbly support to coast in
to victory. Aberdeen did not have a
regular hurler with them. Caldwell
was the losing pitcher.
The Sandhills League gam§ schedul
ed for Saturday brings Southern
Pines and Vass together on the South
ern Pines field. This contest has how
ever, been moved up to today, Friday,
and will take place on the local field
at 3:45. This was done in order that
both teams might present as nearly
as possible their full strength, as it
is difficult for either managers to get
a team together on Saturday.

The Laurinburg Rotary Ciub has
asked the State Highway Commission
to hurry the re-building of the Lumber
River bridge on highway 241, or U.
S. 411, between Laurinburg and Aber
deen. This bridge, a concrete super
structure on wooden piles, was de
stroyed some time ago by fire which
raged in the river lowlands, and a
temporary bridge was built to carry
Continued delay in re-building the
river bridge will discourage tourist
travel on this road and, it is said, has
already stopped a large part of the
heavy traffic because of fear that the
temporary bridge may not be truck
worthy. Until the bridge is rebuilt
and put in first class condition it will
be indicated on road maps as a tem
porary structure, or as a “bridge un
der construction,” which will be suf
ficient to scare the tourist and the
traveler from other states, the Ro-
tarians maintain.

someone catching hold of her ankle.
She at first thought that it was her
sister arranging the bed covers, but
she felt the hand a second and a
third time, and discovered that a man
was in the room. Miss Lydia spoke
to her sister and raised up in bed and
the intruder got out of the room
through a window. Several minutes
later the frightened woman peeped
through the window and saw the man
disappear around a corner. They were
afraid to cry out, so remained in the

Come see the tire that’s
the talk of America!
Announced in April, it’s going stronger than ever in
August—this sensational new “G-3” Goodyear All-
Weather. The word’s out—spread by “G-3” users—
that it’s even better than we advertise. They say “43%
more non-skid mileage” is too modest. They say its
greater Center Traction grips so much better—stops
cars so much quicker—there’s no comparison with
other tires. All of which is sweet music—and makes
our sales zoom! Take a few minutes—come see what
it’s all about. You’ll be well repaid!
