Ronnie was fitted for a foot- ball mouthguard early this weeR and wore it all day Tuesday to "get the feel of it" before he turn- ed out for junior high football in a couple of weeks. But he took it out when the Twilight League father:son base- ball game started Tuesday even- ing. Before the night was over he wished he'd left it in, for a ground ball took a bad hop and hit Ron- nie right on the mouth. He probab- ly will lose a tooth as a result. There was a bit of consolation. Ronnie's team of sons won the game from their (]ads -- by one run. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Vern Howe, 2203 Callanan.

Shelton batters outhit McCleary 4-2, but nothing ever came of lhem. McClcary monndnan Bob Michalak whiffed five for the win- hers. The Mason County bunch couldft get out of its non-hitting or scor- ing rut later either as the Olympia Merchants' Jerry Meurs threw a nne-hitter at Shelton. OLYMPIA PLA'rED single runs in the first, third and sixth iu- nings in the win. Chubb Nutt .Tha naged the only hit off Meurs, a fourth-inning single. , As District 8 play wound up Monday the Cammarano-Rayniers, Brewers, Olympia Merchants and McCleary SRA emerged as the dis- tricts' four representatives to the state tournarnent in Yakima.

This set the stage for a cli- matic dual between Southside and Hillcrest for the championship to close the final chapter on league play for 1963. THE SOUTHSIDERS saw their chance for the crown and trimmed Mr. View 2-0 Thursday behind Butch Bowman's one-hit slab stint. The all-star game, the annual grand finale of the little leaguers, is on tap Friday night at 6 p.m. on Loop Field. Regular league ac- tion ended with Hillcrest and Mat- lock facing off last night. Bowman stopped the Tigers with- oht a hit for five and two-thirds innings before giving up an off- field to Ed Dawson. He struck out 11. Southside tallies came in the first and fourth frames. Mike Carper laced a single to center in the first scoring Dave Jackson who had walked and stole second. Dave Puhn singled to left in the fourth to plate Bowman who had reach- ed base on a fielder's choice. ONLY ONE BALL was hit out of the infield off Bowman other than Dawson's blow. On the other end of the league ladder Matlock edged Kamilche 7-6 to escape the cellar spot and assured Kamilche's stay there. Matlock broke a scoreless tie in the seventh when Kamilche pit- cher Denny Renecker issued six walks and hit a seventh batter. Before Kamilcim could get out of the inning Matlock's Bill Owen, Dave Stodden, Doualson, Charles Chappell, Bob Owen, Ken Stodden and Dave Gribble had scored. KAMILCHE'S ' RICK Adams walked with the sacks jammed k the fourth to force in Phil Bloom- field home as the losers got one un back. Bloomfield had singled. Steve Renecker, Mike Clary and Denny Renecker spiked home again in the Kamilche fifth. Clary and Denny Renecker scor- ed in the sixth after two walks, two singles and a wild pitch.
