Bremen's baseballers put on their fighting togs Saturday and travelled over to Springbrook park to put on a swatfest of many colors and much slamming.. They said it with base hits to the number of twenty-one, mauling- the South Bend hurlers fori fifteen runs and whining by 15 to S. Then on Sunday they let the Nappa- r.ee Tigers get the jump on them in one bad inning and the Bengals went home victors by 3 to 1. The Sunday fracas, although a total loss to the home team, was a real ball game ar.d pleased the crowd that saw it. Benders Are Busted. Johnny Oswalt set 'em down hard and often in the Saturday matinee at Siu-ir.gbrook, fanning eight and holding the Bender swatters safe all tie time. Meanwhile his mates made the paths green with emerald hose whale they chased fifteen runs across the plate. One to four hits were contributed by every man in the Green Sox crew except Whiting, who hit the ball hard "but couldn't drop it into safe territory. With one down, Hall walked in the opening frame. Singles by Touhey and Britten brought him in, but Whiting slammed into a double that retired the side . South Bend came back for two runs when Maulin was safe when his grounder hit one of the million bogs that adorn the place the big town lads use for a field and Sheehan lost it. Hits by Gill and R. Koehler scored him, another wierd hop to Sheehan allowing Gill to count also. The Bremen crew got to Mr. Cast-ner in the third. Hall started it with a single. Base knocks came like firecrackers in a bunch from Touhey, Britten and Wertz. Then Babe Thi-lion busted one for three bases and Batchelor told Paul that would be enough. Larry Tape of Chicago was inserted in the fracas at this point, Castner being sent to the outfield. Tape started his day's work by puncturing Bauerline. Oswalt pushed out the sixth hit of the inning, scoring Fhilion, but the side was out when Wolf speared Sheehan's drive and nailed Bauerline, making a double play unassisted. Just by way of good measure the Greens piled up three more in the fifth. Wertz walked and Bauerline singled. Then Oswalt connected for a triple drive, counting himself on Sheehan's safety. Hall singled, but was forced when Touhey hit into a double play. Tli it e luise crashes by Wertz and Philior, a single by Bauerline and a niishty drive for the circuit by Oswalt ran the total count to 13 to 2 in the sixth. Then Johnny let up and the Benders collected eight of their eleven hits, two in each of the last four frames, with never a chance to catch the Sox. Maulin lifted a i'y to deep center in the sixth after Wolf had doubled. The ball fell i:i a water hole that decorates the biu: town's center garden and Britten decided not to wade. It went for a homer and two runs. Two alks, a puncture and two singles gave the Benders four more in the eighth. In the first of the same in-ring Bremen had counted their last two ru.-.s. making the final .count 13 to S. Oswalt pitched a great game and led his mates in the hitting, getting two sin ties, a triple and a home run in four trips. SOUTH BEND AB R H TO AE Maulin, cf B. Ko abler, lb Gill, ss Pemmitt, rf . .

Galli-Curci Is Coming For Recital at Winona Galli-Curcf? the world's gi-eatest soprano, is coming to Winona Lake for the third time, Wednesday evening, August 13th. Hundreds of music loving people wajit to hear her again ,and are alreadjvsecuring reservations in the great Billy Sunday Tabernacle where she will give her recital." There Is no more popular artist before the public today. Her writings in current magazines have attracted wide attention. Early reservations have been necessary if one wished to hear her in any recital during the past year. Galli-Curci is one of those few artists who are capable of" appealing to both the cultured music-lover and to the person who knows nothing of music, but loves it only for its own sake. This rare combination springs from personality, which is something that art in itself cannot ever hope to reach. '.. ; . , '. . i".

He has more than A family of three met instant death at the Compton crossing of the Pennsylvania railroad, just east o Inwood, at eight oclock Sunday morning when their car wasstruek by the Broadway Limited, one of the Pennsylvania's fastest trains. The victims were Harry McWfiorter, a-bout forty years old, of Fort Wayne, and his wife and son, a boy of fifteen. The,, flyer was making a speed of seventy miles an hour in an effort to regain some lost time". Engineer O. T. Peterson stated after the accident that he saw the car approaching the crossing slowly and he suppood the driver would stop. Instead, the car moved slowly onto the tracks and was hit squarely by the flying train. Mrs. McWhorter was thrown cfear of the wreckage, but Mr. McWhorter and' his son were crushed against the pilot of- the locomotive. Their Dodge roadster was a total wreck. The train was brought to a stop about a quarter of a mile from the crossing. The father was still breathing when his crushed body was j taken from the enjqne, but he did not regain con-cfoufness. The son had been killed instantly . His head was crushed and almost severed from his body. The body of Mrs. Mc-Whorther was also terribly mangled. Mr .and Mrs. McWhorter had left Fort Wayne early Sunday morning for a trip to Maihall county. Just where they were going no one knows, for there was no on? left to tell the tale. They stopped at Warsaw and got the son Charles, who has been 1 living with relatives thre since his mother's death. They had proceeded as far as the Compton crossing and were on their way west when tho accident which wiped out the family j happened j The party may have been going to the home of Herbert Graham, north of Inwood where a younger son, Herbert, was living. It is probable they were on their way there to get the other boy and take him with them, maybe, for a day's outing at Pretty Lake or Koontz Lake. They had lunch basket and fishing tackle in the car. - . , Josiah Hendricks, who lives just west of the death crossing, was the only witness of the accident except the engineer of the train . Mr. Hendricks was standing in his yard when the train came down the tracks at its terrific speed. He paid little attention to it until it whistled for the crossing, and then added several short blasts of warning. This caused him to look up to see what was the matter. He saw the auto almost stop directly on the crossing in front of the on-coming train. The locomotive hit the car squarely and before the train could be brought to a standstill it had passed the Hendricks home more than a thousand feet from the crossing. The engineer, trainmen and pas- sengers quickly came to see the re sults of the accident, and began moving the bodies and wreckage from the engine. Mr. Hendricks came up at once and he identified the body of Harry McWhorter and his son. Funeral services were held for the father and his son Tuesday afternoon at the home of the man's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles McWhorter, southeast of Bethel church. Mrs. McWhorter's sister came from Warsaw Monday and took the woman's body to Warsaw, where the funeral service for her was held.

Assessments By State Board Latest Thing In Spuds Wears An Iron Belt The very latest 1924 model of fancy spuds, on display in the Enquirer office window, has attracted many people snce it was put there by Ralph Leazenby yesterday. While he was digging potatoes at his home Wednesday he turned up the freak specimen. It is a common old Irish potato, but when this, particular tuber picked out its place of resience it chose a spot directly in the center of an old iron washer that had been buried in the ground. When it grew to its full size, half the potato was on each side of the washer. The result is a freak spud, with the iron ring around its middle. Lorenzo D. Warner, 61 Dies in South Bend Lorenzo D.

Governor Alfred Smith and Mayor Hylan extended the official welcome of New York state and city through representatives. The entire welcome and reception accorded the delegates, who numbered about 15,000, was unusually warm, Mr. Barts states. A parade down Fifth avenue on .Thursday, said to be the largest on that street in the last 15 years, was the crowning point of the week. Thirty-five bands, six drum corps, two bugle corps and two string instrument bands added to the vast army of members to make the affair an impressive one. Willard Marakle, Rochester, N. Y., and first assistant industrial commissioner of New York state, was elected supreme dictator of the Moose and will serve until the next convention to be held in Baltimore, Md, next July. Reports read at the conclave showed a total membership in the order of 650,000 and total assets of the national organization amounting to $32,000,000.

Fersonal property appraisements reported for Marshall bounty by County Assessor Alva L. Porter were approved by the state board of tax commissioners in session at Indianapolis Friday. The state board recommended that the list of assessments turned in by the county board of review be not changed. Increases ranging from five to thirty-three and one-third percent ; were ordered in twenty-four of the counties of the state, and the coun ty boards are meeting today to ap- i prove or disapprove the action of the j state body. i The session of the state board last week revealed serious evasion of payment of their proper share of the taxes of the state by many citizens in the making of their returns to the assessors. Most of the evasion noted was on . mrt -v f - Jf a l . i . . . , "uAiess "PP one-half of whom did I no llst Caf un the tax dl- ' cate. Many of those who did re- port cars gave false valuations.

Government figures show the average valua tion of the cars in the United States ' to be $323. In many townships of j Indiana automobiles were listed with j an average as low as S70.
