At least two unassisted double plays were executed, .several fine catches were turned hi, especially by the left fielders of the Laundry nnd A|ip!cbaum learns and Ihe shortstop of the Caca Cola club. Huey, L. Oldlram, Cowscrt and Klitzcy led the Coca Cola hitters while" Snillh, 'nui'ler for the Nil- Way club, paced Her Icammntes with two blows.
