The Minneapolis Northsiders' Legion baseball team which played a three game serlej at Bancroft spent fourteen hours getting from home to Bancroft via the railroad, It* routes and connections, without ununusl detaln- ment. Some of the boys were wondering at that time if return tickets had been purchased. Dorothy Dumont, a customer In search of eggs, and Woody Cook, the clerk or would-be salesman, couldn't agree as to the pick of the basket. Vieing as to whether Dorothy should take this egg or that to make -up her dozen Woody nportlngly threatened her with dropping one down her neck. Quick as A flash Dorothy grabbed Woody's open shirt collar and dropped an egg into it. As it rested above the belt Dorothy let go with a wild haymaker and smashed the egg. At the recent street celebration one of the concessions consisted of a board with several colored holes and a caged mouse. The customer was to bet on which hole the mouse would go In when released. Pitcher Lefty Atwell who throws low curves and bouncing balls to opposing hitters of the Grays saw opportunity to make a little side money. In teaming with a local insurance salesman he smeared cheese around certain colored holes while the salesman attracted the attention of the concessionaire. They then retired and told their friends on which ones to lay their dough. Several of them took the advice but lost consistently. The mouse went to the cheesed holes, sniffed long and earnestly and then scampered into the winning holes for his master. How they got around the NRA In Illinois, was told by a recent visitor. When the price limit was set by the government on trade-in values of automobiles the dealer would lay down a penny match box and bet the buyer twenty-five or fifty dollars he couldn't jump over it. The money was put up und in this way the fellow after a new car always won and received a sum above the NRA price for his old car. The scheme was fought out in court and found to be legal.
