Albany To Bring
Strong Tram Here
Albany has the edge on today's
game here, in view of its recently
recruited strength and the tight
pitching Harris has been doing
since he quit wearing himself out
with midweek games.
The Senators are in excellent
form, however. Three games last
week and' an extra contest this
forenoon are expected to improve
' their collective battin' eye.
The lineup will be the same as
last Sunday, with Russell on the
mound. His effective work against
Mt. Scott last Sunday and against
Albany Thursday indicate that his
delivery is steadily becoming hard

youngster, pitching on Thursday
