Against Laytonville, Ernie Mos-. na was on the mound to win his second consecutive twilight encounter, his performance helped put Talmage in the league lead, as Ukiah and Willits were rained out the same evening. Sunday's game with Fort Baker proved a slaughter, as Talmage rolled over the Fort Baker boys by a 12 to 2 count. Turning in a flossy performance as a new recruit at shortstop, Jimmle Busch impressed the fans as a much better than average prospect. Mosna led the hitting with 2 for 3, with Laviletta, Guidi and Brazil each collecting 2 for 5. The Sluggers meet the fast El Cerrito nine at Talmage for a 3- game series next Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Talmage—12 lABI HI R Laviletta, lb _ I Baird, If, P- Mosna, 3b.

Until the last match Banker had displayed the cbility'to turn on the heat when it was needed to win, but Clarke was in rare form and virtually unbeatable, not even needing hi.s 6-stroke handicap, Bob Clark, municipal golf pro, pointed out. The genial yolC mentor says that he had personally offered to "grind Jack's axe" m his preparations for future tournament play. Clarke's scoring in winning the t'aiace cup showed 89 in the qualifying round, K5 in the first round, 89 in the second, a win by default in the semi-finals and the count of 84 in tlie winning match. Banker's scores were 84 m the qualifying round, 80 in the first, 83 in the' second, 82 in the, semirfinals and 85 in the finals. Ira Whilton won the Palace consolation final round from McGuire on the 19th nole with a birdie three.

Lockhart started the sixth as pitcher and was replaced in the seventh by Kirkland for Ukiah. The Merchants had a field day at bat. Home runs were hit by D. Myers, Bob Valentin! and Lciok- hart, with a generous sprinkling of men on the bags to hike the Ukiah score.

Down the lino bome telephone instruments...your £ link with an amazing system. They're sensitive and complex—but just a small part of the facilities required to connect your home with millions of others— and handle nineteeti million calls a day. That's Pacific Telephone's present average. In 1940 it wasll,000,000 calls a day. 2. Intricate switching equipment like this must be practically custom made and installed before telephones can be used. You've probably never seen it...but it's on the job every time you make a call. And there's still more to the story. Land and buildings and other equipment must be provided — all of it's expensive. 4. Where does the money come from? Millions of new working dollars... needed r.d ext(>nd and improve service...must come, not from telephone bills, but from thousands of people who put their savings to work in the telephone business. To atuact these wor)<ing dollars, we must pay a reasonable amount for their use. This depends on the sale of our services at fair and adequate prices. 3. "Roadways of speech"...telephone lines and cables;..have to be ready to carry the calls. There's nearly fourteen million miles of wire now at work in the West...and more is being added every day. Handling more calls than ever in our history keeps all our facilities mighty busy—along with the telephone people who man them.
