DCmQH JOURNAL Page 6 MELVIN JOHNSON, Inc., Publishers Saturday Morning, September 17, 1938 NICK AND NATIONAL GUARD PLAY FINALS Semi Final Standing of Clubs W. L. Pet. Nick's Wildcats 2 0 1.000 Nuttlo 0 2 .000 National Guard Swann 2 1 .607 1 2 .333 Nick Dulin'e Wildcats and the Notional Guard were victorious over their opponents in the semi-final playoffs in the Soft Ball Tournament here and earned the right to piny each other in the finals this week. Nick's Wildcats were victorious twice in a row over Nuttlo Lumber Co. defeating them the first game 24 to 4 and taking the second 9 to 8. The last game was very close on both aides, with Nick pushing over a tally in the last frame to win. The National Guard and Swann series went the limit of three games. Swann won the first game 12 to 10 only to have the Guard capture the second 12 to 7. This put both teams on even terms and a third game was necessary to determine the winner. The third contest was staged last Monday evening with the National Guard winning by the score of 6 to B. Monday's Game Both teams meant business when the ump yelled "play ball". Swann's team was first at bat and scored a run in the first inning-. Four markers crossed the rubber in the second but after that Davis had them popping up all over the lot for the rest of the game. Swann held the Guard scoreless for three rounds and then an error accompanied by 4 hits gave them 3 runs in the fourth. A run in ·the fifth and two in the sixth proved the Guard the better team.

Hanley, Manager of the Eastern Shore Division of the Keystone Automobile Club. In citing the heavy toll of lives taken in "after midnight" crashes, the Club official declared "curtailment of horn 'honking" would be of material benefit in promotion of highway safety." "Early morning drivers," he continued, "are more inclined to use their home instead of their brakes when speeding through darkened streets. Each driver abroad at night seems to think he is the only one driving at that hour and instead of using brakes at intersections, uses his horn. Fewer drivers are on the streets, it is true, but most of them have the same idea and the high night accident ratio is the result. "Drunken driving is especially prevalent in these hours, which makes it more important for motorists to be doubly careful. It takes more than the toot' of a horn to stop a juggernaut with a besotted driver at the wheel. The motorist who instinctively applies brakes at intersections instead of 'blasting' his way through ·with ear-shattering horns, has a much greater life expectancy. "Except for roving cars on the ·watch for drunken drivers, enforcement of motor vehicle laws reaches a low ebb during the early morning period and the motorist is practically on his own with regard to compliance ·with the law, which fact probably accounts in no little degree for the many crashes."
