Aftef 70 Game* in Malveftt Df*Arh DrtAfhs of Glorified Set Wp far Liftftif Hatt Promptly after the ftnal game list Snnday afternoon tne official 163 3 kittenball season in Malvern was declared ended. And *eil might it be, for during the brief four months of play, the doughty athletes which make up the teams of the league had played 70 games — enough for any league. At the top, as the season Closed, was the happy All Star ten, whose early glory was somewhat tarnished by later losses and who squeaked through the final game with no points at all to spare. Proud Was Manager Arthur McCullough as he surveyed these results for he was the leading spirit of the league and his efforts not only helped initiate it, with those of Paul Hertz, but he devoted more time to the thing than any other one person. Kittenball players, like artists and girls of 17, dream dreams. Next season imaginative league powers hope to start the season April 16, and plan even to install huge flood lights so that this sport can be enjoyed after Old Sol withdraws his healthy rays. Then their record of 70 games will be petty and unimportant for two games an evening will be played instead of one. Only financially were the klt- tenballers the least bit out of step with the times. For Instead of a deficit, the league came through with a surplus of more than |1, with all debts paid. This •ad feature, as no two could agree on a means of getting rid of It, was left for next season's officers to handle. McCullough, turned statistician for the nonce, furnishes us the following figures of the league.

Manager Arthur McCullough curried Main street and all usual hang outs for his proteges, gave them an Inspirational pep talk and with them went in and defeated the Fly- mouth tett, 9 to 6. Important tn the final results of the kittenball league's season, the All Star-Plymouth decided the positions of the champ and run* ner-up. As a result of it, the All Stars stayed at the top and the Plymouths accepted second post tlon. Hard hitting, the Plymouths got more by three than did the All Stars, but were, unable to cap! tallze on them. Lawrence Hall, University of Omaha footballer, popped out three hits for the All Stars and scored three runs and Sidney Laraen and Manager McCullough each scored two hits and runs. Buck Wlndom socked hardest for the Plymouths, getting three hits, and Piper, Hedding, and Zanders got two each . Butts pitched for the Plymouths and big Paul Hertz was in the box for the All Stars. North Farmers in Lead After Playoff Crossing bats with each other for the third time in as many weeks, the North and South farm- era kittenball teams battled away Sunday in a slightly uneven game, finally won by the North, 16 to 4. Heavy hitting by North batsmen was the main reason for the unevenness of the battle as the two kept fairly well balanced on defense. Virtue of the North activity was that, nearly everyone socked the ball a little ways, thus driving more and moje counters In. ' J In the North lineup were Robinson at pitch, and Harman, | Ralph Zanders, Fred Zanders, f Pontow, F. Knop, L. Knop, Plumb and Leu. South mainstays were H. Norton at pitch, and W. Scott Allen, P, Norton, Conner, D, Van Orsdel, A, Scott, Armstrong, G Van Orsdel, Burcy, Firemen in Usual Form in Final Tilt In usual scoring form in their final tilt of the season, the Fire* men kittenball team dropped their game with the Oilers, 18 to 8, Not that the Firemen weren't doing so well -—their batsmen whammed out twQrtblrds again as many hits aa did the Oilers but most of them came at the wrong time and third out usually found several Firemen left out on bases, Luckiest of all tbe Firemen was Redding who got four hits and one run. Two others, Ivan McCord and B, MeQord, were put down for two hits each and one run. Jones pitched for the team, AJleJy was the only Oiler wfeo did exceptionally well at batting, as he came through with three hits and three runs. Wlndom and Heddlng each popped out two bits and Wlndom, Anderson, anl Johnson scored two runs each Burcy pitched, On every cruiser and Battleship of the U, 8, Navy there are from two to six airplanes, These planes are launched at flying speed from catapults.
