Secrests pitch ed no-hit ball up to the sixth in ning when "Big" Ole hit onofor a single. Walt Mahor mado one of the classiest one hand stops evor seen on the grounds. Ty Larson was given rough treat ment the first inning1 when with threo on V. Larsen hit one of his famous smashes towards Sauvio's Island and trying to play hog was thrown out nt the plate. Young Lavsen was knock ed off the rubber in the fifth and "Bat" Nelson goes in to stop the rumpus. "Bat" must have fed all his speed and curves to the High School boys, as he was soon in a hopeless fix and never got out until the regulars went around three times. His six or seven fielders came in with tongues hanging out after the rumpus. "Big" Ole and V. Larsen wern the stick men, the former getting two two-baggers and a single while Larsen got a triple, double and two singles. Secrests had most of the Yans swinging so hard that they saw the hair on the back of their, neck. "Kazoo" Hawkins started to officiate but got cold feet when the players commenced to ride him.
