ARLINGTON TEAM WINS
It was anybody's game up until
the seventh inning last Sunday, was
that Arlington-Heppner game at
Up to the end of the sixth nobody,
scored and theta in the seventh, as
will sometimes happen, the visitors
swatted the pill scandalous and
brought home four men. The
eighth canto brought no scores to
cither side and the first half of the
ninth was equally unproductive.
Then Heppner took up a couple of
notches in her belt and brought in
two nice scores and the game ended
with Vaa Marter and Ward on -bases
and Paul Aiken almost to first. The
ball beat him by a hair, however,
and thus Heppner's chance for a tie
score and another inning went glim
mering. Old Reliable Montagua was in the
box for Arlington and our batters
had difficulty in finding his curves
and outs and ins, landing but three
hits during the game. Broughton,
for Heppner, delivered a nice line of
goods that tfe visitors ate up us
kids do candy, taking toll to the
tune o ften hits. Four walks are
credited to each pitcher.

honey, American capitalist and
father of the heroine, Madeline (Vel
ma Case) with whom the chief is in
love; Cortland Van Prissey, New
York dude and millionaire, (Elmer
Bucknum); Mrs. Witherspoon,
widow and chaperone, (Hazel Ander
son); Jimmy Squabs, a master diver,
(Paul Aiken) ; Seraphina Squabs,
wife of Jimmy and who "lined him
up" proper on occasion, (Marguerite
Hisler) ; Arafura, a native belle,
(Helene Curran); Commander
