DOWNEY NINE LOSES TO COVINA HIGH The Local Ball Team Wins Great Game and Maintains League Average of 1000. High School, 5; Downey, 3. If then; la anything that will put a crowd In a good humor, It IK a good, ncrappy ball game. That IB Just what they got In the May Day content, and it. would be hard to have found » happier bunch of farm than the big crowd that cheered when Hull slipped acronn hlB last atrlke-out. It was a game full of features from start to finish, and as It put Covlna High at the head of the league, the satisfaction was doubled. Kistler had Hull In the box to nerve across the benders, and the way he did it was highly satisfactory. The Downey men were all good stickera, and the masterly way In which Hull mixed his curves, and changed hfs speed, accounts for the local victory. In the vtii-y first inning tre visitors looked dangerous. After two men v/ere out, let nri easy one through him in right field, two runs scoring. For H!X rounds the Downeys were blanked. they got a man as far an third; but a little snappy work all around and there was nothing ntlrrlng. In the seventh a. walk and a hit brought arroMH the third and last run they gathered. At the critical moments Hull was very effective with the nl rll'foiit. dope, arifl managed to make monkeys of nine sluggers that faced him. The home boys started to get l.heir's in the very first Inning. Hull walked, Ttlggins lined out a. single, and Hull came homo on Allison's infield grounder that was handled too slow to get iiiiii out. at first. At this point 'Klsl.ler flew to second, doubling HiggltiH out. The third started well, but. poor work on the bases accounted for two men getting out lifter being passed to first. Illgglns was bettor than ever, and h\c- ed out. a two-bagger, scoring on Allison's poke to loft. The two runs gathered In this way tied the score, but It did not look like a cinch by any moans. The fifth frame was a lucky one. Ohomborlen was hit by pitcher, and was scored by Daniels' two-bagger. Hull nnd Illgglns l!ew out, arid It cnrno up to Allison again to score a run. In his first throe times up, Sam did not got credit for a hit, but each time he managed to bring a runner over the pan. In this case Daniels came In on his grounder to first base that was juggled long enough to make the runner safes. In this Inning the visitors pulled off another double play; Hives , to Oraham, to Hipilres. i-'imitli! got a neat single in the sixth after Wall went In t<> pitch. Kirby bounced one toward second base, and was safe. Adslt and Daniels walked, forcing Sprotle In. With the bases full, and chances for a sensation, Hull made the third out. After tills rally there was no further scoring, both pitchers settling down and pitched gilt edged ball for the rest of the game. The principal feature of the game was the wiy Klgglns slammed the ball around tl't; lot, making three runs In four times nt bat. Hprotte was next with two to his credit.. It In the first, time that tin' high school has had the opportunity to perform before a large crowd, and the style and snap they put into Iliolr performance was much appreciated.

Covlna, 11; Outfitting Company, fi. The homers did not seem to take much pride In themselves last Sunday when they lined up against the bunch of counter Jumpers, that came out to try their luck at the great national sport. Of course Covina did what was expected of them, and more than doubled on the visitors, but the men played with a lack of ginger, notwithstanding "Hllly'fl" glaring reference to a game that slipped away from the locals Just a short time ago. Aguayo was again the hero with the stick. After a brief Interval of looseness by Ping In the opening frame when the urbanltes had annexed three runs, Pete came to bat with the bases full and slammed one over the left fielder's head. Three runs came over, leaving Pete on third, Church scoring him with a neat bit past short. Ping whlx/ed them over In a bewildering fashion, and blanked the visitors up to the ninth. In this last, Inning a pinch hitler went in and landed safely, bringing two runs home. C-nahl was the box artist for the opposition, and was really a poor specimen in the department. Ills wearisome vvindup must have cnnulcd the boys; for the best he could do wan to slide them straight aeroi-is, and trust to luck and the umpire. That he was not. lanced oftoner will always remain a mystery. Hits in the sixth and seventh netted two runs, but. the eighth was the inning that brought the windfall. Llbby and Montague singled and scored on Cushman's double. Kendall was safe on an error, Aguayo Rot to first by a fielder's choice, Cushman scoring. Kendall was enught at third. Church singled, scoring Pete. After stealing second, and being passed to third, he came homo on Stewart's fly to first that Terry misjudged. A feature of the game was the bat work of Cushinan, who v/orked out around third base. After he lost the fear of the pitcher in two times at bat, he landed for a triple and a two-bagger. Church was the only other man to got more than one hit. Santa Monica !s dated to play here the 10th, and a rattling good game is anticipated. With a few more teams out here that can class with the Los Angeles Athletic Club, the game will be boosted In Covlna, and a little more "pop" can be Instilled Into the players.

We think all will sse the justice and fairness of this, as by the old scale we were entire losers on one edition of the paper in months having five Saturdays, inasmuch as regular display advertisers were to be counted on, in many cases having to set new advertisements as well as giving the space gratis. When it Is considered that the Argus advertising rates have not been advanced since the paper was founded, although the circulation has increased four or five times at least, It will be seen how reasonable our rates are. We do not know another paper of the circulation of the Argus which sells its space at anything near so low a rate. The rates are: 15 cents per inch per one column width for single insertions; 12 1 2 cents per inch for more than one insertion... No discounts except on half page ads or larger. We are giving this notice the first of the month so that any advertiser not satisfied with the charge may have his advertisement inserted only four times reduced in size for five issues, or discontinued, as he desires.
