Breaks of Game and Fluke
Home Run Contribute to
Salem Downfall - '
Costly errors by Salem, the
breaks of the game and a fluke
..borne" run by Kearns of the visit
ing club, caused the Salem Sen
ators" to lose to the Knight's of
Columbus 'club of Portiand yester
day by psc6re of 5 to 2.'
On Sunday the Senators defeat
ed the Friedman All-stars of Port
land tly score of 12 to 2. The
gamewas uninteresting, though
only one error was marked against
each club. Keene pitched for Sa
,lem and bad things all his ' own
, j While It was . announced that
yesterday'!! game with "the KCs
would be the last of the season bw-
fnar ti ha Imnnoalhilitv nf p-ttlnp
"any more first class clubs here
this fall,' .Manager Biddy Bishop of
'the Senators said last night' that
since the Knights' won there Is a
chance to get "them back faext
Sunday for a rub-off game Each
team has won a game,' the Sena
tor .having beaten t he ''"Knights
early' In the season, so tile Port
landers have no claim to superior
ity ovefthe Senators. Had Salem
-won yesterday 'the game w6uld
hava been "decisive! 'Whether the
Knights can come to Salem next
Sunday depends on whether they
tin arrange to hare a game sched
uled In Portland for the "afternoon
t ransfefred to the forenoon". " In
wafh event they will come to Sa
JenTiri the afternoon. " r ! ;pJ"

proceeds to go to the completing of the, church, building fund.
. On Thursday evening of this week the Vincents will give one
of their very popular evening entertainments. Those who want an
evening of rare enjoyment, as1 well as those x who ' want to help the

but the tumble of Gilbert and his
horse from a high cliff has no
exact parallel In screen thrills.
Here is how it happened: John
Gilbert, as Carlos Brent, meets
Virginia Brown Falre,-. who' plays
opposite him as Carmen" Hendiey,
on a narrow mountain road. Carlos
is . mounted on spirited horse,
Carmen is whizzing at a terlffic
rate of speed In a little roadster
To pass is Impossible. At the crisis
the star raises his mount on his
hind legs and Carmen speeds un
der his waving fore legs, safe.;
; Then the horse loses its balance
and crashes over the cliff. This!
is just as the author of the scen
ario would have It. Director
Howard Mitchell, however, had
planned to have the horse come
back on all fours and "shoot" the
fall at a lower place on the road.
But as Robert Burns said, the best
laid plans of mice' and men often

accident thought was sure death.
