The Gold Hill town baseball team
won its opening game of the sea­
son last Sunday when they defeat­
ed the Prospect nine on the Pros­
pect diamond 8 to 3.
Gold Hdl took an early lead and
made most of their runs in the
first part ol the game. Max Marvin
loimer («old Hilt boy, pitched for
the Prospect team for the first sev­
en innings when he was relieved by
Lloyd Dusenberry of Sains Valley.
Wihner Bailey and Logan Gardner
were the Gold llitl batteries. Dewey
caught for Prospect.
The local team had practiced for
only a few evenings and had gone
to Prospect with slight hopes of
winning. The Prospect team is
considered one of the stronger
town teams in this section and it
is quite a send off lor the Gold Hill
hoys to bring home a win.

Grange Dinner
Draws Crowd
The chicken dinner sponsored by
the Gold Hill Grange in their hall
Tuesday evening, June 1, was a
success in every way, and was welt
attended by local people as well as
residents of all parts of southern
Oregon. 145 people were served
during the evening. The three long
tables in the grange dining room
were crowded for three shifts and
the unexpected large crowd kept
the kitchen force on the run. The
meal was served by the younger
members of the grange. The ladies
of the Home Economics club head­
ed by Mrs. S. K. Barnes, had charge
of the dinner.
The menu consisted of creamed
chicken, peas, carrots, mashed po­
tatoes, hot biscuits, ice cream, cake,
coffee and ice tea. The California
