With something in the nature of
a gruage ngni as wen as an
otherwise hard game in store for
them when Nicolai comes here
Sunday, the Salem Senators are
working harder and showing more
spirit this week than ever before.
The ''grudge" part of it is due
to Nicolai's attitude when Salem
was seeking admission into the
Portland City league. It was the
opposition of the Nicolai director
that caused the decision to be
delayed a week.
The Senators have been putting
in long hours at batting and field
ing practice, and the spiTit with
which they are entering into the
league race may be judged from'
the fact that two members of the
squad, "Red" Ridings and Faurie.

who responded all bore names

who have wrung recognition from
