It will be one of the funniest things you have seen for some time. Capacity crowds for three nights and Sunday afternoon at the Waterloo baseball park last week testify that we are not alone in our convictions. A witty announcer was not the least of the highlights in this freak game. We hope you hear the same man when you see the affair. Everyone except the catcher and the pitcher Is mounted upon a donkey. Catcher and pitcher cannot leave a box marked for them to stand in. The players are local business men. The Kiwanis club played the Rotary club, for instance. No one can fan out, and the ball is a kitten- ball. ! After the batter hits the ball he springs to his long-eared steed and attempts to get to first. The fielders must ride to within three feet of the ball, after which they dismount, get the ball, remount, and throw to catch the runner. You can imagine some of the complications. The crowd was in an uproar from start to finish. j One of the features arose when ; Wimpy, one of the donkeys, refused to amble down to the first base. Every time a batter was forced to ride Wimpy he was a sure out. One ingenious man however, solved the difficulty. He placed the ball out in right field and then brought Saturday. She came as far as Britt with people there who had been in Illinois. She spent Friday night with the Fern Hulings, Britt. Mr. and Mrs. Phil Baker, St. Wimpy was safe at second! IMcuic at Park Here.
