Twice before the Red Heads and the Town Team have tangled, and the result is a duke apiece. The Townies copped the first one, the Red Heads squared the count in the second meeting.

Long Shot Experts The feminine court tourists de- pend largely on their uncanny ability to cage long range shots for their points, but with six- foot—four-inch Genevieve Love, six-foot-two-inch Hazel Smith, and six-foot-two-inch Ruth Osborn in the lineup the Red Heads are a distinct threat under the hoop, too. Miss Osborn, a mannish looking girl, plays the same type of game as her masculine rivals and can dish out the rough stuff as well as any of them, as the crowds who have watched her per- form here before can readily tes- tify. The Red Heads lose something like half their games, the edge Lbeing in their favor, playing men’s teams entirely under men’s rules, asking and receiving no quafi‘ter. But their losses are usually by close scores. An advance ticket sale is being conducted by the Garden Club with Mrs. Winston Scott covering Hill- crest, Mrs. H. G. Angle and Mrs. Mark Rodgers on Angleside, Mrs. Peter Zopolis, Mrs. Hal Briggs .and Mrs. Logan Mitchell in charge of downtown coverage. BACK IN HOSPITAL Joe Hitch of Angleside, was re- admitted to Shelton hospital to- day for treatment. ‘ [Department Chief Rudy Nichols? And 4th District Command- cr Wm.

George Cropper, resident man- ager, opened the after—dinner pro- gram with brief remarks on the purpose of the gathering and the appreciation of company officials over the harmonious relations which have .always ruled between employer and employees in the pulp mills here, the good service rendered by those who have grown in the organization and in the community. Welch Toastmaster He introduced William D. Welch, of the Industrial Relations de- partment, as toastmaster of the evening. v Mr. Welch, who is no stranger in Shelton, took charge and felici— as indicating the spirit of good will which has ruled between the company, its employes and the ed out that the officials whether in .San Francisco or elsewhere, felt themselves a part of Shelton, interested in its welfare, watch- ful over its progress, and rejoic- ing over the advance the city had made along with Rayonier. He expressed pleasure over the per- manency and steady employment afforded by the, pulp mill, as re- flected in the fact that nearly eighty per cent of its employes were home owners in and near the city. Mayor William E. Stevenson responded in a talk of welcome in which he stressed the harmony and progress of the community, in large part due to the pulp in- dustry, the interest in local af- fairs by company officials. and employes, and the substantial growth made by the city because of its important industry. He pointed out that a good employe with his home and family must of necessity be a good citizen and builder in the community. Birthday Guest As A. B. Govey, a guest of the evening, that day enjoyed his 70th anniversary the gathering sang_the “Happy Birthday” song in his honor.

With five cases each, petty and grand larceny charges were the most frequent among the superior court cases, although imbecility and insanity each had three cases for the prosecutor to handle.
