Community House Notes
The Neighborhood club held a social meeting and supper Tuesday evening. The H. N. C. club will meet at the residence of Mrs. Woolfolk Thursday evening. The meeting of the Baseball League called for last week was postponed until further notice everybody seemed to have a date and only a few members answered the call. A match game of indoor ball has been arranged by Mr. Elmer E. Adams between a team of married men from the League and a Men's club of Wilmette, at the Community House gymnasium, next Saturday evening. A supper and social time has been arranged to follow the game. There is to be a Valentine party Friday evening in the gymnasium for the young people. Plans are beign made to entertain a large gathering. The basketball team of the Winnetka boys' club were defeated by a boys' club from Evanston Saturday evening. It was a close game and the Evanston boys just won out by one point.
COMMUNITY HOUSE INDOOR BASEBALL LEAGUE
First Game (Wednesday)
The most exciting and interesting game of the winter was played between Hubbard Woods and the Gun club Wednesday night. The Gun club ran up a big score in the early innings an seemed to have the game won, but the Hubbard Woods boys braced and after Dean relieved Stephen in the sixth inning the Gun club were unable to make another hit. Dean pitched some beautiful ball and had the Gun clulb boys helpless before his speed. The last four innings were full of excitement-Dean's hard batting and Hoyle Elliott's base-running started a rally that carried the Gun club off their feet. Four runs in the ninth won what seemed like a hopelessly impossible task the way Cazel was pitching. An Cazel did some good work. [The score is illegible.]
Hubbard Woods: Elliot H. Taylor, Rose, Stephen, Dean, Ostrorn, Hansen, Turvey, Eliott, R.
Gun Club: Radner, Blow, Knapp, Knox, Wolff, Baker, Kleepfer, Haines, Cazel, N. Hostetter
Notes of the Game
Wolff and Nash Cazel made some good plays. Dean's third base play was brilliant. Hoyle Elliott's steal of home in the 7th started a rally tht finally won the game. Dean's pitching after he relieved Stephen in the sixth was the best seen in any game this season-three men faced him in the seventh and pitched balls fanned the side; three men faced him in the seventh and ten balls did the trick. Thirteen men came to the plate in the last four innings; one walked and the twelve walked right up, picked up a bat and soon walked right back again. It was brilliant ball. There was a little bitter feeling aroused during the game, but was soon forgotten. Some "kidding" soon smoothed things over.
Second Game (Wednesday)
The Community Squares won their first game of the season, beating the Indians, who had only five men on the floor. The boys played good ball and defeated their older opponents after a see-saw battle which was anybody's game up t the final inning. Hale pitched his first game as a member of the Community Squares and had only fiar success. [The score for Community Squares is not legiable.] Score for Indians...1 1 3 3 4 1 4 3-20
