RIVERSIDE FINISHES AHEAD. Covina Lucky But Not Enough Aggression. Time Taken to Discuss. Fine Points of Game. Covina 3, Riverside 4. , There was a lot of contesting done out. at the ball park last Sunday afternoon. Three Covina men were busy hitting the ball, while the rest rallied in around the pitcher's box and helped the umpire settle the finer points of the national game. Whether the team as a bunch were much use in this capacity is a question, but it did need someone with a little spark of aggression to see that the Riverside batting order was not changed every inning. Hunt could drop down here any afternoon in the week, and mollycoddle the whole Co^lna team, •with a local umpire thrown in. The Riversiders had all the best of the game, and were entitled to win it. Eight hits, against four, and an even break in the error column, usually denotes an advantage, and all the more so when Hunt was able to fan Covina's batters eleven times. Up to the eighth inning the visitors •were outlucked, and it began to look as though Covina would finish in the money. Lougheed was placed in the box to shoot them over in the way an ex- Stanford baseball captain is expected to. He got along very well. In the . first, Hunt and Deakons got hits, and the former scored. After that the hits never came in pairs until the eighth, when Lougheed started to aviate. Paddock was given first by the only walk issued, Lippencott bunted, and was safe after the ball was juggled a few times. Then McGill batted out of his turn, and after landing for two bags, was called out. Instead of Lippencott and Paddock going to second and first, they were each advanced a bag. Wallace fan- •ned. McGill took his real turn at the bat and hit over second. Wicker threw to Shirley in lots of time to catch Lippencott, but the third baseman fussed it, Lippencott scoring Ping Fairly relieved Lougheed at this juncture. Workman singled to right and stole second, McGill going third. Hunt came up and bunted to first base for what should have made a third easy out, but the ball was dropped after a spell of juggling, and McGill scored. Workman was caught stealing home. Three For Locals. Kendall opened the third by laying a slow one toward first that Lippencott fussed over, then Montague was safe by Goodfriend's error. A walk for Lougheed filled the bases. Pete Aguayo came through with a beautiful hit just over the third baseman's head, and all three scored, Pete being caught at the plate. Hughes fanned, and Ping flew to second. Right fielder Deakons was the prize slugger of the afternoon. In three times at bat he hit each time, one of them being a three-bagger. Aguayo did the best sticking for the homers, landing twice for hits just over third. A fast double was made in the second inning. McGill singled to left, then Workman smashed one to Lougheed, who doubled to Fairly before the Indian knew what happened . Riverside pulled off another in the eighth. Ping slammed a beauty past third. Bab followed with a fly to third, and Ping was doubled out at first. Wallace of Covina played second base for the visitors, and performed very creditably.

One Million Tons Will Be Needed In Plans For Good Roati Improvements—Will Buy Property Near Glendora. The county will quarry one million tons of rock from its own property to supply stone for the 309 miles of good roads to be improved under the $3,500,000 bond issue. That decision was definitely reached when the supervisors voted unanimously to purchase an 80-ocre quarry in San Dimas canyon, near Giendora, fronr William H. Thompson for $3000. Lnder the law, notice of Intention to purchase must be published, so that the county will not come into actual possession of the property for a couple of weeks. After that a rock-crushing plant will be installed without delay, and it is estimated, the first rock will be ready to use on the roads within two months. This means that rock from private quarries will not be used on any piece of road to be improved under the $3,500,000 bond Issue except upon the section of the El Monte road for which the contract was let today. For all future contracts rock will be furnished by the county, so that contractors will simply bid on the road making, and not on the rock supply. This venture of the county in the quarrying business means sin expenditure of about half a million dollars. About 1,000,000 tons of crushed rock will be used, it is estimated, and the cost of production will be about 00 cents a ton. The quarry land purchased is about two and one-half miles from the Santa Fe, four miles from the Southern Pacific, and only one-eighth of a mile from the proposed ex'.ention of the Pacific electric tracks. Spurs will be built in from all the railroads. A tramway probably will be built from the quarry to the Pacific Electric lines, where the crusher will be installed. The quarry will supply rock not only for the 309 miles of good roads, but will prove an almost Inexhaust- able supply for future needs of the county, it is expected. This purchase by the county of its own quarry put an end to all other propositions submitted to the county for rock supply. The last of these was received when J. E. Wickham, representing the Glendora syndicate, offered to sell the county 100 acres of rock-producing land at Glendora for $20,000, or to sell 600,000 tons of crushed rock at the rate of 1000 tons a day for G5 cents a ton. Other offers had been received to furnish rock at 50 cents a ton. Totals i',2 4 8 '•', 27 9 3 SI'M MARY Three-base hit—Deacons. Sucri- i;i-« hit — Hughes.

Junior Play Entertains Two Nights— Clever Talent Displayed by High School. "Charley's Aunt," the character Interpreted by Hoyt Leisure In the Junior high school class play of that name on briday and Saturday nighta of last week, made a hit which will ho hard to duplicate for a long time to come. In fact, the excellent manor In which all the characters In this play were depicted, scores just a little bit better than the wojk of the Seniors, which may not be a diplomatic thing to say, but will be borne out by the people who saw the skit as portrayed by these clever students. Hoyt Leisure played the part of a young Oxford student, who Is Impressed Into service to Impersonate the aunt of one of his chums, an aunt who was expected to make a visit and Incidentally chaperone a party, and who didn't turn up at the right time. Leisure worked In a good bit of natural ability, and had the audience with him from the start. Paul Rlggins, as Sir Francis Chesney, late of the lu- dinn service, made a dignified Impression, and Grant Chapman as the designing solicitor had a splendid makeup as an aged man and delivered his lines effectively. Robert Philleo and Irven Reynolds, in the parts of college chums, delivered themselves of some happy places In the play, and Leslie Ship way, the college scout, and general man of utility, made every opportunity good. Miss Albine Power, in the role of the real 'Charley's aunt," proved to be nothing like the imaginative character the boys h.u) made up in her absence,but a sweet and winsome young woman, exceptionally good looking. Sarah Crook, Gladys Seat and Dell Harnish had ingenue parts which fitted them nicely. The play on Saturday night went through without a single hitch. "Bob" Pliilleo at "doubling" is a success, for he played his part well on the stage and led the orchestra between the acts. RAISE IN SALARIES. Grammar School Teachers Receive Merited Acknowledgement of Services. At a meeting of the school hoard on Monday evening It was decided to make some needed raises in the salaries of teachers. The salary of Karl C. Leebrick, principal of the Covina grammar school, was raised from $1200 to $1350. All other teachers In the grammar grades receive a raise from $712 to $800, which will henceforth be the amount paid for the ten months of school. This addition to the former amount paid places the Covina schools on the question of salary, on a bawls with all the best schools of the state, with the exception of those maintained by large cities. Professor ./. J. Morgan was formally elected as supervising principal of the Covina schools, which was a ratification of the action taken last week when he accepted the position. Those chosen to occupy positions as grammar school teachers are re appointed teachers, including Miss Collins, Miss Heath, Miss Klllol.t, Miss Hall, Miss Widney, Miss Doyle, and Miss Kennedy. No action has yet been taken for the special courses. The reports show that the school has maintained an excellent standard of prollcience during the past year in all departments, and the board Is highly gratified at. the work that has been accomplished by Prof. Leebrick and the teachers who so ably assisted him.
