MEDFORD BEATEN BY WOODBURN NINE; WILL PLAY AGAIN
In an interesting game the team of Company I of Woodburn, defeated the nine of the Seventh company at the baseball park Sunday afternoon by the score of 9 to 4. The Company Seven team was outplayed all around due to the lack of practice.
Another game between the same two nines will be played Wednesday afternoon at the baseball park at 2:30 o'clock. The admission fee will be 25 cents and the proceeds will go to the sick fund of the two companies. The Medford boys promise to turn the scales on the visiting militiamen and will put in some hard practices between now and the time of the game. The threatening weather Sunday kept the size of the crowd down.
ALL INVITED TO DO THEIR BIT IN PATRIOTIC PARADE
The arrangement for the lineup of the big "Do Our Bit" patriotic preparedness parade on Wednesday are practically complete. In case the committee has accidentally overlooked any organization in the lineup, it will have been entirely unintentional and it is hoped that they will accept this as an invitation. The committee will gladly assign positions to any such organization.
The above invitation may be particularly applied to individuals who are not otherwise affiliated to appear armed with a hoe, rake or spade and join the ranks of the "army of the Hoe" commanded by County Pathologist C. C. Cate. Assemblage point for this organization is on Main street just west of Mistletoe, facing east.
In Tuesday's local papers, assemblage points for all organizations will be specifically given and individuals of all organizations are urged to carefully note their assigned places and to be on hand promptly at 9:30 a.m. to avoid any confusion as at least two thousand are expected to be in the final lineup.
