presor Station diamond Sunday af-
ternooii when the Edna Pipellners,
winners of the first half, met the
Victoria Rosebuds, second half win-
ners, in the first game of the play-off
series. Victoria won this important
game by the score of - to 1, and in
so doing established themselves as
deeidid favorites to win the cham-
jpiiontdiip. However, | the Pipellners

A large number of ex-service men
had a great time out at the Edna
Roping Club grounds on the Dewey

happened that Rode, Rosebud hurler the veterans of World War 1 threw

hits and «8 errors. Edna outhit Vic-
toria 5 to 4, while in fielding Victoria
had the edge, making ii errors to 5
for the Pipellners.
For some reason, probably an over-
sight, the local team failed to turn
in a box score of the game. How-
