1111 Billies, now established as fa-
vorites to cop the tourney, have a
couple of forked arm twirlers who
can pour the horsehide across the I
plate. The Ridgeway nine copped
their first scuffle, 1 to 0, in a seven-
inning no hit, no run game, as re-
corded by the official scorer. Lefty
Bee Rodgers was on the hill to
whiff 17 men while turning in the
feat. The Hill Billies returned to the
diamond Tuesday for their second
bout, and this time they nodded for
Robert Carpenter, tree top lad and
wronghander, to take over the hill.
Bob took over in grand form, hurl-
ing three-hit ball and fanning six
batsmen. The Ridgeway club is now
the only one in the tourney with two
victories notched up.
