The .Toledo, baseball- team romped
on the team representing Waldport at
tho local fair grounds diamond Sunday
afternoon by the scorn of 9 to 4. before
a crowd of approximately 150 fans.
Although the game was somewhat
loosly played, nevertheless the fans
their 'money's worth and were
well satisfied with the' results. '
Coleman, the big tall boy. heaving

and caused 16 of the husky local lads
to retire atter taking tnree swings ai

The locals jumped into the lead In

when Starr mussed up his grounder,
jVan Decovcring duplicated Services's
stunt, Hammond got hit by a pitched

scored when Tromietz swatted for a
long single, the first 'hit of the day.
In the first and second Innings Cole-
man made all the putouts against To-
ledo by striking out six men. Three
hits, an errcs and a walk enabled To
ledo to put four more across in the
third. Toledo did not score again un

men over by three safe hits and two

the eighth when Weeks slammed out
the only two-bagger or the day. He
went to third on a wild throw, but

Waldport started good when Reilly,
the first man up, hit a clean single.

WASHINGTON. May 29. Ths Amer-

the -' American Federation of Labor
The attack makes many accusations
and charges. It states that the pri
maries and elections this year will
determine whether "the misrule which
'has characterized the present Congress
will be permitted to continue." It
asserts that "all hope of remedial leg
Islatlon ot a real constructive nature
I by the present Congress was lost

I that "profiteers" and "reactionaries"
hostile to labor unions have control oi
the present Congress,
In all fairness it should be stated
that the so-called "Non-Partisan Po
litical Campaign Committees" of the
American Federation of Labor are a
fake. With few exceptions those who
are tryfng to make the American Fed

tion rather than a labor organization
are Democrats and have always been
democrats. The exceptions are those
