A repudiated outfit of G. I.
diamond exports, wearing the
ERTC colors, will clash Sunday
afternoon on the camp baseball
field, aimed to provide ample
color and thrills to baseball-
minded Abbot personnel.
The game will get under way
at 1400 o’clock with outfits com

and outstanding trainees, accor

camp team manager, and Sgt.
Roy Rider, athletic director of
the Special Service branch.
The Ah!>ot Engineers hustled
like guys in the steaming ,jung

noon but dropped a 11 to 1 fray
to the Bend Elks in their first
regular game. Nine of the 11
runs were classified as unearn

caused by apparent nervousness.
However, the red-and-white uni

smart throughout the game, and
