Softball fans in this and the
Canton section will be able to sat
isfy their longing for the popular
mi the Fourth when Way
nesville softballers will meet the
Canton sluggers in both afternoon
and evening performances. This
has been the custom for the past
two years and has created much
enthusiasm among the sports fans
of the two Haywood towns.
The teams were about evenly
matched last season, and the same
care has been taken this year to
t.1bm. two teams as near the same
rating together so as to make
the game more interesting.
Four teams from the Industrial
city will invade the local diamond
with the first game of the day

So far as could be learned there
will be no fan fare before the start
ing of the holiday feature, but plans
are to have the local high school
band on hand for the games here
in the evening, but nothing defi
nite was learned to this effect.
For a number of years there
has been a spirit of friendly rivalry
between Canton and Waynesville,

Aeain rolls around the Inde
pendence holiday which has been
celebrated in this county mostly
with softball games both in the
afternoon and evening. This year
the custom is to be carried out
in a similar form as has been for
the nast two years. Canton will
match their softball sluggers
against the locals, and the outcome
well your guess is as good as

8 to 6 Defeat
Trytn was defeated in his In
dustrial League game Saturday
with Hazelwood, 8 to 6. Although
Tryon rallied in the closing in
nings they fell short of their mark
and Hazelwood triumphed.
Kimberline led the Tryon team

five trips, but the hitting star of
the afternoon was nazeiwwu
Fisher, who accounted for two
triples and two singles in four efforts.".
Woodard, Hazelwood hurier, gave
up eight hits and fanned 10.
We have been a firm believer in
athletics and now more than ever
we think they should be practiced
in all ages from the child just able
to walk to the old man that is
somewhat stooped with age. Our
country needs men who are, phy
sically fit and a good start toward
the goal is to take part in some
form of athletics in you home com'
munity. Softball has been a happy
solution to this question here in
Waynesville and this summer as
well as other towns and commu
nities in this section.
It is the belief of some that
softball is on the down grade in
this section, maybe that is so, but
still there has not been any real
weather for the fans to turnout
It takes rather warm nights to
fill the seats at the ball park.

In Sale Of Fishing
Licenses Over '40
There has been an increase of
$870 in sale of fishing licenses
for 1941 over the same period last
year, according to G. C. Plott, coun
ty game and fish warden. ,
In 1940 the sales from April the
first to July the first amounted to
$1,348.50 as compared to f 2,218.50
Mr. Plott attributes this increase
to a number of reasons, including
the heavily stocked streams, the
better quality and size of the fish
being put out by the hatcheries and
a growing interest in the sport.
In case you have not been out
to the ball park at the high school
lately, we now have one of the
largest and best athletic fields in
this section. Both of the stands
are now concreted and the . field
has been graded to the point where
it is practically level and much
larger, and is equipped with lights
for both softball and football. It
has been a hard and long fight to
get the field completed, but at
last this community has something
to be proud of in the sports field.

We believe that credit should be
given where it belongs, and so we
take our hats off to "Deacon"
Woodard, of the Hazelwood Manu
facturers who pitched his team to
a victory last Saturday afternoon,
giving up only eight scattered hits
and totaling ten strikeouts. The
Manufacturers are not on top of
the league standing by any means.
but they showed that they , could
play ball when they really wanted
to. Also an unusual hitting' event
took place the - same afternoon
when Mayor "Dutch" Fisher, who
pounded out two triples and two
ingles in four trips to' the plate.
Hazelwood took the game from
Tryon 8 to 6.
this has been only on the gridiron
or on the hardwood in basketball,
but now more of the sporting
element can have a chance to par
ticipate in this rivalry.
