Game time is 2:110 today at Lions Park. Admission will be ?. .50 for adulls, $ .25 for children. The Sox, perked up by a well- earned win over Alamogodo last Sunday, arc geared to shove their five won, four lost record a little deeper Into the black side of the ledger. The Tigua Cubs have never appeared in Las Cruces. In the current season the Blue Sox have had winning ways over El Paso teams encountered here. Some Sox voice confidence today's game will finish their priming for a game scheduled with the now-haughty La Mesa Blue Jays, who earlier this season romped over the Sox 23-1 in a game at La Mesa. The Lower Valley team comes to Cruces July 4 for a holiday game, nlso set for 2:30 at I.ions park. KOREA, ONE YEAR LATER Escaped Murderer r Kev.
