HELLO SPORT FANS! Monday night marked the
opening of the softball season with tilts between Boosters
and Dayton Rubber. High School and the Tannery . . . al
though it was threatening rain the attendance was good.
Two teams who are new in the league won the first
victories of the season over more experienced teams
who in the past have been considered tops . . . if there
is anything prophetic, in this the rest of the league had
better watch their step.
Dayton Rubber started the ball rolling by outslugging
the Boosters team with the score of 16 to 4 . . . Jim Phillips
pitching for Dayton Rubber, held the Boosters boys down
to 9 hits while the Dayton team managed i,o get 30.
Although we knew the High School boys would not
be such a push-over, we did not expect the brand of
ball the boys showed the powerful Tannery team . . .
sparked by Laffie Scruggs' pitching, the High School
kids led the Tannery team all the way through until
the last inning when the Tannery team picked up enough
"juice" to score the 3 runs of their score ... the High
School won the game, 4-3.
It may have been because the Tannery didn't expect
such a kick from the kids and the boys were smart enough
to take advantage of this ... or maybe it just takes a little
while for the older boys to warm up , . . anyway the High
School crowd is one to be watched by any team who has
designs on top honors.
FISHES TAKING IT EASY
According to Mr. Plott the fishes, the ones that are left
won't have to worry as much about being caught in the
present and future ... the reason is the same that seems to
be wrong with just about everything no gas.
On the 30th from West Fork there were only 83
people fishing who caught on the average of three fish
each ... on the 31st from Big East Fork there were
only 199 people fishing and they caught on the average
of three fish to the person.
So, until something is found to take the place of gas,
the fish can rest in comparative ease of mind.
NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH
Speaking of fishes, here is "one" that I thought was
pretty good: A young man was talking to a friend of his
at Massie Hardware Saturday and being a true fisherman
told him of an experience he had just had.
The young man was fishing in Richland Creek ...
he had the good luck to hook a large rainbow trout . . .
it looked even larger when he took it out of the water
so he excitedly measured the fish . . . well sir, that rain
i bow measured exactly 21 '2 inches!
Everything would have been just fine if he could have
taken it home and displayed it to his friends . . . but darn it,
the fish, somehow got back into the water!

Chicago When William Arvid
son, 62, saw his friend Adolph
Muench, 40, fall into the river, he
didn't hesitate a minute but jump
ed in to rescue him. It was not
until after he hit the water that
Arvidson remembered that neither
he nor Muench could swim, so
they both began calling for help.
Police rescued them.

From Boosters, High
School Tops Tannery
In the first games of the season
which were played on Monday
night at the high school stadium
two new. teams made their debut
by winnhi their tilts.
Dayton Rubber won by a score
of 16 to 4 over the once powerful
Eoosters Club. Red Mull sparked
the Dayton team by' getting 4
runs out of 4 hits, hitting like
this, coupled with Jim Phillips'
pitching, helped the Dayton team
keep an easy lead all the way
Ed Boone and Oliver Yount led
the Boosters in hitting with 1 run
for 1 hit. Although the boys play
ed a nice game they were not
quite a match for the Dayton team.
Coming through with a surprise
in playing cooperation and sparked
by the pitching of Laffie Scruggs,
the High School team beat last
year's top team, Tannery, by one
Leading the Tannery easily un
til the last of the seventh when
the Tannery boys broke loose and
scored the 3 points of their score,
the High School team won the
tilt 4 to 3.

Fines Creek News
Mrs. D. N. Rathbone
As we naturally should and it's
a very common discussion for us
to compare other communities as
to their co-operation and progress
in their farm activities, and per
haps folks would like to know
just how the Fines Creek people
took the gasoline rationing. Of
course we understood as other sec
tions did the purpose of it all. It
was all for a great purpose to win
the war and we are a part of a
people whose ancestors knew war
fought in war, brought us our
freedom through war, and we
must help preserve our freedom
with the visions of our forefathers.

Why advertising has to be
a good buying guide
For You !
WHEN business man runs adver
tislng in this newspaper for a product,
he in effect signs a contract with you
that the product is as he represents it.
Then the normal operation of our
American Competitive System gives you
further guarantee that the factors of
price, service, and quality are kept in line.
If a business man gets his prices
too high, then an'
him and trade mt a competitive stort.
If a manufacturer puts out poor
quality products, people just stop
buying from him and the business
man goes broke. .
Thus, the American Way works
automatically lot you the consumer
that's why it's the best way!
