LAST WEEK we talked about softball for the coming
season . . . let's continue with further discussion on the
subject, and get the opinions of those who were closely asso
ciated with the league last year. " I have contacted most of
the managers of last year's teams and asked them what
they think of softball for the coming year . .. . in relation
to the war and prospects for a good season ... and what
suggestions they have to offer for this season.
Here are their unbiased opinions:
Mr. Feldman, manager of Reliable Jewelers:
"If it is well advertised it will go over ... I think that
one point we fell down on last year was not letting the
public know about it . . . lots of our tourists did not even
know that softball was being played.
"I think that we should follow President Roosevelt's
policy that sports should not be eliminated in our every
"As for the boys being drafted, I think that we will
have enough for one good league."

Guy Massie, manager of Rotary:
"As far as the drafting of some of the players is con
cerned the Rotary Club won't be affected because none of
our members have been drafted.
"As for the season, I think that this year will be
as good or better than last year's . . . and I think we
really should have some kind of sport to go to and I
think that SOFTBALL would be the ideal sport.M

la an nour when our nation needs the actire
support of every group of its people, It Is gratifying
to learn that the 4-H Clubs will hold a national Mobil
lzation Week, to rally the million and a half members
and spur then to greater efforts In the cause of freedoa.
It is to be hoped that the National 4-H Mobilization Week
also will bring more rural young people into active
participation in the useful work in which 4-H Club
Tour activities in producing, preserving, and
preparing food; in making clothing; and your other
practical experiences in farming and homemaklng have
prepared you for many tasks Important in peacetime and
indispensable in wartime. No other group of rural young
people anywhere else in the world has so much worth de
fending, or is better prepared to help defend what it hae,
lour 4-H Club pledge embodies the obligation
which rests upon every Club member as a young citizen.
Repeat it, study it, make it part of your very being.
Let your head, heart, hands, and health truly be dedi
cated to your country, which needs them now as never
Whitner Prevost, irfanager of Unagusta:
"If they do have softball this year I don't think that
it should be played under the lights at all.
"We have lost a few players out of last year's
teams, but it shouldn't hurt much.
"I have not decided whether Unagusta will have a
team this year or not . . . as far as I know no meetings
have been held . . . but I do think that it will have to be
worked under an entirely new set-up this year.
"I think also that if they do have softball that it
should be made more of an old man's game as it was
when we first started out." '
Furman Robinson, manager of Pet Dairy:
"I think we ought to have a softball league and, per
sonally, am in a hurry to start playing and I know a lot of
fellows who are wanting to get started, too. .,,.;
"We have lost only two players so far and I don't
think that this will hurt us very much.
"I think that we should have only one good . league,
we probably won't have but enough for one anyway. I am
not in favor of playing at night under the lights. If it is
necessary we can start a lot earlier.
"I am not in favor of the present set-up either. I
think that it should be more as it was when we first
started out and that anybody could play if they wanted
George Bischoff, manager of Royle & Pilkington:
"I do think that we should have a softball league if
it is anywhere near possible, because this year the people
are going to need some kind of entertainment more than
ever. I think that the season should be as good or better
as far as offering entertainment as last year.
"I also am in favor of one league and I think that
it will almost have to come to this out of necessity. Al
though Royle & Pilkington had two teams 'last year
they couldn't at all this year because so many of our
boys have been drafted. I also am in favor of playing
at twilight, and I think that we would not have to in
convenience ourselves by doing this since we are on
War Time and the days are longer, too."
Judging from, the reports which you have just read I'd
say that everyone is in favor of having softball back again
this year and that most of them think that it would be for
the good of the public.
Although the draft has taken a few of the players
it has only been the more professional ones and would
not take the fun or the vigor out of the game.

three tennis courts which were promised to be built at
