COVINA SHUT OUT. Woodill-Hulse Pitcher Ha3 Good Day In the Box Position, While Local* Pile Up Errors. Tho Woodlll-HnlKf baseball team j of LOR Angeles gave a clodded crimp | "lay account for the listless playing ami the subsequent defeat of the homers. However, there were sixteen f >*her Rood rensons why they could not win, so what's the difference? Pitcher Miller of the Klectric? was something of a show In himself. Five COVINA OUT OF RACE. Compton Easily Victors in Deciding Game.. .Brilliant Fielding Stunts Mark Contest. Compton won from Covina last Saturday afternoon on the home diamond by the ncore of 12 to r>. The contest was gamely fought out tn the finish by the local team, but a superior article of baseball bent them, thus putting Covina from the front ranks back Into third place and leaving Compton to fight It out with Monrovia for the championship. Not too much can be said of the sportsmanlike conduct of the Compton boys. They played clean, snappy base ball throughout, and none of the "bufih" tactics which some of the hits were registered from his delivery, home hoys display at times, much to but three of these were the veriest their discredit, were noli^eable. Dun- f'-rat/'hfM, and with his gilt edged kan acted as umpire. He is just a support, there was little chance of grammar school youngster, but the scoring. Only once did Covina. have a way he moved around (lie field, arid 'hance to prevent a shutout ; that was kept, things going, was good to see. in ""' eighth, when I'ete Aguayo The first and sixth Innings were knocked a hot one to left arid speeded the fatal frames for Covina.

Siirotte WIIH hit hy pitcher, and NlRK fmcriflcod. Chem- lierlon made n two-bawe poke, scoring Daniels and Sprotte. KlKtler funned, making the third out. With six runs In two Innings, and UB many more coming l.n tho remaining seven, the fans settled back to enjoy the fielding features of the visitors. Tho little Idea of winning put away entirely. In the sixth in- nlng Nigg landed one low to the trees fn deep center field, and raced away to mnko second base, but little Hare- Bnap.e In the middle garden, speeded in among the treew and made a great one handed stag. TlasUlns, the third baseman for tho visitors, showed lots of class, although he was credited with two errors. It la not often that a pitcher can land on a ball consistently, but Gorton did not have the least trouble to find Hull at will, lie got three hits, one of thorn a double, and would have had another if It had not rolled down a tree trunk Into Riggins' hands. In tho eighth two more dropped to the locals. Sprotte and Nlgg Mingled, Chomborlen sacrificing Sprotte homo. Kiatlor drew a walk, and Nlgg scored on a passed ball. This made tho home boys a total of five runs, but Compton had pluckod six more after the second inning Just for the fun of It. f'OVINA Alt H If SH TO Inning when Covina, would slip one over to prevent a shutout. Instead of this, HiiKHoll was pounded for two singles and a double, while Hughes made a miss that scored Chess, J. Wilson landed for two bases, and scored Owens. The fielding was of the ordinary variety, and furnished few thrills. A double play in the first was tho only thing that called for any show of feeling. Tracy caught Chess's bunt, and threw to first In time to catch CoHby off. Tho score: COVINA AB H It SB PO Kinder, KH Kirby, Ib... HlKKlns, If.. Hull, p AlliKon, c. . .

We were "up against" Hollywood IliKh for the championship '*•''' bate, and the rinesUon was, "Rosoh«;d, that the present distribution of power between state and federal governments calls for readjustment in the direction of further centralization of power." Covlna'H debaters, Walter Aschenbrenner and Mary Ellcdge, affirmed, and had It been an oratorical contest, they would have secured first and second place respectively. As it. was, Aschenbrenner secured second place on the excellence of his argument and delivery, getting, a handsome silver medal as a reward. A goodly number attended the debate, both of high and grammar school students, also citl/.eiiH of Covina. I 4 os Angeles High was .strongly prejudiced in favor of Hollywood, and showed this by yelling exclusively for that school. The debate commenced about 8:l!0, one of the .Indues; being delayed, and after come enjoyable selections by the glee club of the Los Angeles High Hcl'ool, the firnt, speaker on the affirm- ati-.e. Waller Asehonbrenuor of Covina, spoke. His delivery was very nearly perfect, his personality pleasing, and his argument good. The next speaker, on the negative, Will Candee, was fall 1 in argument, although very poor in delivery, evidently suffering from a severe attack of stage fright. Our next, speaker on the affirmative, Mary ICllodge, did excellent work. Her delivery was fine, and she far surpassed Candee in both diction and argument. Hollywood's last speaker was the Infant wonder, who won the debate for his school. He might truly be called a "freak of nature," as he has won almost every debate he has taken part in. His delivery was Inferior to Aschenbrenner's, but In argument and "bluffing" he completely Sophomores took nil the prizes, Arthur lUxby securing first place and Fred Chemberlen second. Arthur Bixby.
