GOBS OF GLORY COMES
TO BALL BOYS OF LENTS
The Hesse Martin Baseball Club
brought home the championship of
the A. A. league with them last Sun­
day, and the biggest share of the
gloi¡y comes to l^nts. Pink Dear-
dorff and Red Bill Moore, Lowry’s
undefeated Ix-nts battery again
proved invincible letting the Crown
Willamette tossers down with three
hits for one run, Pink striking eight
of the opposition. Five of the I ren­
workers hail from lienta. The gaine
was one of the cleanest and fastest
affairs ever staged in Portland semi-
pro circles, being free from argu­
ments of any kind Each side made
one error, -tnd sparkling plays were
made all through the game. The
Oregon City lads scored the first
run in the sixth inning on a walk,
a hit and an error. In the seventh,
Moore got a pretty single and stole
second, third and home for the ty­
ing run. In the ninth inning,, the
Ironworkers being last at bat, drove
in the winning run when Garbadine
beat out a hit to short, went to sec­
ond on a hit by F. Bird, and cross­
ed the plate on a long Texas leaguer-

le-ardorff and Moore were the shin­
ing lights of the game, although
every man on the team played in
first class form. “Mascot” Hubler

in a slug fest which was featured by
errors and poor base running. For
a time the Oregon City boys had
it all their own way, but in the
eighth inning with the score 11 to 3
against them the Wooodmer refused
to «spare that tree, and in two in-
nings had tied the score. but the
Papermakers were able to squeez?
the final score 12 to 11.
The social and moral arguments for an unsparing
profits tax are to mv mind unanswerable. To per-
indiviifuals and corporations to enrich themselves
of the dreadful calamity of war is repugnant to
one’s sense of right and justice and gravely detrimen­
tal to the war morale of the people.
