Positive statements thus being in order,-you have to admit, (hat the' Tiger tossing, outfield and power' make the Brlggs hoys pretty tough to 'shave.

Next week Barnhill expects to double-up and give the boys all that the foolball bag has to offer. If good weather prevails the Porkers will have a full menu from now on.
