Shelby High Star Shows ’Em He Can Play League Ball j4s Easily As High School Ball I _ Georgia Sporlwrilers Rave About Hitting Young Fool From Carolina School. (By RENN DRUM.) Back in May when Cline Owens j Lee was leading the Shelby high j school team to a state champion j ship by his heavy hitting and spec 1 tacular fielding the report got out I that league scouts were on his trail. Somebody suggested to the j Shelby high captain, a semi-bash ful, grinning youngster, that his , fielding might go in league circles but that perhaps league pitching would be a bit fast for him. “Shucks! They're just pitchers, j too.” he answered. "I believe I ! can hit some of 'em if they put em over, don't care who's pitching.” And down in Georgia, the state of beautiful girls, Tv Cobb, and Bobby ! Jones, the youngster is showing the fans that he can do just that. Batting .75b. | He was in his first game last ' Saturday at second base for Co i lumbus in the Southeastern league and all he did was slap out three hits in four times at bat and field i eleven chances perfectly. Even out I in league circles they'll tell you that's playing baseball at top speed i—in fact, that is just what the i spoftwriters on the Columbus pa pers are saying of the school boy | who jumped to Class B ball and set the league on its ears his first game. ! One of the Columbus sport writers |in giving an advance notice about (Lee signing up said: “He has a batting average back in the Nort i ^Carolina high schools of .530. That's hitting, and any player who can hit that well for just one game down here will be going some." i And what did young Mr. Lee do for them? He hit a mere .750 his (first game, just 200 points better than the sportwritcr called “hitting some.'' What They Said. j When Sunday's Columbus En quirer-Sun came off the press the big headline across the sport page read “LEE STARS IN DEBUT AS FOXES BEAT FLIERS.'' A big head over another story read "Millsaps Released. Lee Signed.” Down in the 1 article was the information that | Millsaps had been playing for Co ] lumbus three seasons tut was given :t he gate when the young Shelby slugger got into action. I The story of the first game Lee .played in and especially the parts telling of his performances, as writ ten by Henry Averill, Enquirer sportwriter and official scorer of the league, goes as follows: "With Cline Owens Lee, North Carolina high school boy, hogging a large share of the limelight the Reynards romped off with the fi Noticc Of Sale, 'North Carolina, j Cleveland county, i In Superior court i J.

HORACE KENNEDY, Trustee. nal game of the Pensacol scries, 7 to “With manager Ko’nlbccker on third and Littlejohn on second the aforementioned Cline Owen Leo made his first hit in professional baseball, scoring his manager... The Mr. Lee, referred to in paragraph one, did doughty deeds for the Kohlbeckers, deeds, which if con tinued, will enable the young fel low to make enough money to pay off the mortgage, if any, on the dear old homestead up in Shelby, N. C. Cline Owens played second base and batted second in the Fox lineup, but he was second to nobodv either at bat or afield. In his first trip to the plate he hit a hard fly into center which Tangeman potk eted. In the second he came up with Kohlbecker on third and Lit tlejohn on second. In this situa tion he produced a hard-boundin'; grounder through the box which bounded cheerily into center lor a clean hit . . . In the fifth he hit a slow hopper to short and hastened to first so fast that Viau's hurried throw pulled Abrams off the sack. Herman almost immediately tried to pick him off first and did get ball to Abrams in time, but Cline Owens slid neatly around the first baseman to safety. The slide was unnecessary as the umpire declared a balk against the pitcher and Lee walked down to second and trot ted home on Stuart's smack to left In the eighth th.e Carolinian hit another teaser toward Viau, and I beat it out with great ease The Flier shortstopper, a sweet, ball player by the way, wasn't able to scoop up the ball as dashed in on it, but if he had his throw would have been much too tardy to head off the flying lee . . . In the field the newcomer handled eleven chances, four putouts and seven as sists, without the remotest sembl ance of an error. Three of the put outs were on fly balls, none of them exceptionally difficult, though he was forced to go back for a couple of them and did it well. He cover ed first nicely on Herman's sacri fice bunt and took Littlejohn's toss. The assists were for the most part chances which a good second base man will always handle, but one of them was about as fine a piece of fielding as has been turned in hero for some time. Case smacked a hard grounder directly at Lee for what at first appeared to be only another chance. But when the tall hit for Its last bounce, it shot high into the air with the craziest sort of hop. bounding for the outfield. Mr. Lee, as nonchalantly as you please, straightened up, leaped high and speared the sphere with his gloved hand. The play showed a quick eye and real baseball in stinct, for there wasn’t time to think what to do. Is A Comer. “Much space has been devoted to the doings of young Lee. but the aforesaid doings along with Little john's pitching were the highlights of the afternoon. . . Then, too. It may be the last chance to rave over the deeds of our new player, for one ball game doesn't mak* a star by any means. But whatever happens in the future, Saturday was Mr. Lee's day and he made the most of it.'’ Good Naval News. The Nation. Remarkably good news comes from London in regard to the new inter national safety code just signed by the delegates of 18 maritime h?, tions who have been attending the Conference on the Safety of Lite at Sea. Unlike other international conferences this one has been har monious from the beginning, de spite great technical difficulties, and the result is a remarkable advance along various lines. Thus, every ship above 2,000 tons must hereafter carry a wireless outfit and a com petent operator, and it is to be in the hands of each separate govern ment to extend this rule to ships of 1,600 tons. All the direct dangtis of navigation will hereafter have to be communicated by each ship to all concerned, notably weather re ports, and the signing nations agree to cooperate in collecting meteoro logical information systematically. The ice patrol is to be canoed on as heretofore under the direction of the United States. Important rules have been made as to ships' lights and signals, especially new fog sig nals. Direction-finding apparatus is made compulsory on all passengerr ships of 5,000 tons or more, and there is a new status for cargo boats which also carry from 12 to tO passengers. The lessons of the Ves tris disaster have been heeded in the regulations in regard to doo's and bulkheads, piping arrangements, etc. Finally every ship hereafter carry life-boat space for every pass enger on board—something tha^ should have been ordered im mediately after the sinking of the Titanic. 0 6 0 is a Prescription for ( olds.

INDIGESTION Tan Driver Goes Back To Medicine He Had Taken When a Boy to Find Relief. Nlcholasville. Ky.—"Running a taxi is my business, and I am called out at all times, sometimes just be fore meal time, and this makes my eating as well as my sleeping very irregular," says Mr. Jesse Dickerson, of 502 Central Avenue, this city. "I had indigestion, on account of this irregularity. I would feel very uncomfortable after meals. I would be constipated and have dizziness. "I knew I had to take something. I remembered how, when at home before I was married, my mother would give us Black-Draught, and how she believed in it. "So I decided to take it again. It sure did me good. X am glad to let others know what a good laxative Black-Draught is. It clears up a dull headache, and makes me feel like a new person." Thousands of other men and women find Black-Draught a great help in relieving common ailments, due to indigestion, constipation and biliousness. In thousands of families, Thed ford’s Black-Draught has a comer all its own on the medicine shelf. In use nearly 100 years. Safe, efficient, reliable. Bold everywhere. Try ML NC-197 ALLOW (HII.DREN TO WEAR SI N SUITS FOR THEIR PLAY Give the child play clothes which allow the health-giving rays of the sun to reach his skin, suggest home demonstration workers. Sun suits are easily made, and may be of different types to suit the needs of their small wearers If the child is not accustomed to playing in the direct sun, begin with short periods of time and the suit worn should expose only a small part of the body at first. Take care to avoid blistering as it may lead to serious illness. Gradually, both the time and the amount ex posed may be increased until a coat of tan has been acquired. Almost any well-fitting romper pattern can be modified for use in cutting sun suits. The first sun suits may simply be sleeveless low necked rompers made of a flowered cotton print or some other attrac tive wash material of last color. When the child becomes used to the sun a more transparent and abbreviated type of suit, may be worn. Many such suits have net waists and short trousers of heavier material which button on. All the common textile fibers stop most of tlie ultra-violet rays. Loosely woven fabrics like marquisette or net allow these days to reach the body through the large spaces between the yarns.
