He'has been . on the losing end but three times. Bingliam was In brilliant form. He was.touched for but four widely scattered hits, and only one enemy runner advanced as far as second base. J. McGowan, Pilot cc-ntcrncldcr, doubled In the second, but perished at the hot corner on a force play. Binghnm pitched.-to but 31'tatters, and retired the fust half winners of the Northeast Arkansas League II tie in oidei in the first, third, fourth, seventh and ninth Innings; In two other frames, tnc fifth, and eighth, only three batters came to bat, thanks to fast double plays.

Williams collected lilts, Sigutil- t'o had a saciiilce, and Pittman walked a couple. But. he couldn't get by the jscicnth.... With one away, Mills smacked a scorcher through second for a hit, BinR- hani and Gene walked. Signnigo welcomed Stoiy with a hit, scoring one Bmglinm counted as Mabry forced Al on. an attempted double piav. That wound up the scoring foi thr day.
