Ilend won. That Is, In the base
ball game nt Prinevllle Sunday the
score stood Ilend one; Just a matter
or spelling, you see. Tho Prlnovll
llan's scorn was considerably more
than one, for tho facts of Uie case
are that thoy trimmed the looal team
quite badly In tho first game tho Bend
boys havo played.
Tho trouhlo was mostly that Prine
vllle' pitcher outclassed Bend's.
Prinevllle had annexed tho popular
Tetherow of Redmond for the occa
sion. "Slim" Btants for Bend did
Ms best, but was not tho equal or his
opponent. However, the boys field
ed well and garnered a nlco bunch
of hits from Tetherow, although tho
flno support of his teammates kept
the scorer from having much to do.
Tho boys are going after thotr
practlco hard, and another pitcher Is
to bo secured. With tho box work
strengthened, Bend will have a very
creditable team, and Manager Joe
