Three Games Played Saturday and
Many Others Will Follow Soon.

Baseball at Camp Johnston gained
quite a headway last Saturday and three games were played, each proving hard fought and interesting to the spectators. In the first game Receiving
Company No. 5 defeated the Headquarters Guards by the score of 4 to 3; Re.celving Company No. 1 then played .

being called in the eighth inning; the third game proved an easy victory for Receiving Company No. 23 over Receiving Company No. 24.
The warm weather that has prevailed
recently has brought out many of the best players in each company and if it continues long it is expected that a number of very strong teams will be organised and ready for meeting other contestants. Manyoths teams are
preparing permanent organizations, as they expect to enter the league that will
soon be organized for the camp.
The game between Receiving Company
No. 5 and Headquarters Guards furnished the crowd that gathered with a number of- thrills and a hard fought contest. The receiving company team forged into theTlead In the Second and thIs 6ney maintained throughout the five Innings of the game, although the guardsmen came back strong and scored in each of the last three innings, but could not prevent their opponents from likewise adding a score in each inning. It was necessary to call this game in the fifth inning in order that the players in the headquarters
ta miht get back to their -duty on
- scheduled time.
The score by inning of this game was

Physical Director Riess has erected
three volley ball courts in the -camp
and they are proving very popular with
the men and each of the courts is kept
busy practically all of the time. These
courts are well arranged, two of them
being located in the open space across
the street from Building 204 (No. 1) and.
the other at a more centrally located
spot. It is expected that several good
teams will soon be developed and that
this sport will soon be one of the mainstays of the camp.

Mr. Riess also announces that he has
completed laying out two baseball diamonds and has four others now under I
construction. All of the diamonds wii I
be completed within the next few days
and as soon as the long expected supply of baseball goods arrives he will be
ready to start this game in earnest. He
is very anxious for teams to complete
air organizations and be ready whenever the goods arrive so that the camp league may be organized in a short
t lie.
