For instance in the game played Friday night with the Federal Reserve team in Xew York it was learned before the game played that a beating their first year they are sticking to their guns and will continue to furnish high class basketball in the major cities. Manager "Bunny" Griffiths is expected to arrive in this city either Thursday or Friday and from there on out baseball news will be popping for the fans. Griffiths has several players he is bringing with him who were turned over to the Federal Reserve team played and set up several records playing girls rules, they really preferred the game played under boys' rules. After easily defeating the New Yorkers in girls rules the FERA Cargoettes agreed to play one half of another game under boys rules. The Cargoettes won that game as well by a very close score in the closing minutes of the game. The crowd gave them a great hand when it was announced they would play such a game. In Waterbury on Sunday the Cargoettes swept right into the hearts of the fans when they took the floor. The, local aggregation was the best dressed team showing and their great defensive play and Griffiths has been, working out regularly with the Williams- and is ready to put igh their paces at the Stadium starting bright and early on Monday morning. s * * I'll stick to the sticks if that is what the big cities call Hagerstown —it suits me fine. . . .
