to continue their athletics on a normal
basis if possible,

to the six spectators. “Dash” and “Dot”
Medley, of Cottage Grove, were in the
points for the Delts, while “Jiggs” Les

contest and the three runs that the
Delts gathered were well earned. “Cur

three innings that he faced them and
Medley took the measurements of four
of the Sigma Chis. “Dash” looked good
on the mound yesterday and shows
