Point boxers risk Mark tonight 12 in Brilliant a _ opening night Thomasville april 26.�?ramon Cueto a citizen of Cuba caught for the Lexington indians last night. But he almost did not. Purchased from Mayodan last week Joe Mccrary a beloved a a Uncle Reese Harris the Indian Pilot waited and waited for Cueto to show up. The wait was particularly distressing to Harris because the Only Catcher in the Lexington fold had been shipped on the same Day that Cueto was bought. Cueto who Speaks a Little English and reads none at All didst know that his absence was causing such an inconvenience in Lexington. In fact Cueto entertained royally by zealous Mayodan fans who dido t want to see the cuban depart was a a snatched so to speak. He was a a snatched so Well that a Lexington emissary to Mayodan failed to uncover the missing cuban. Finally the business got beyond the serious stage moving into the state of tragedy and Lexington had to do something. A. C. Fite the prexy set the final Law to Mayodan sating that unless Cueto was in Lexington Pronto they had better Send Pete Siciliano the manager who was obtained from Lexington. Rather than lose the manager which they probably won t object to later on the Mayodan zealots took the cuban off coid storage and sent him Down. Despite the chill not too Chilly though a goodly crowd us on hand to enjoy the opening ceremonies which featured manager Jimmy mans being presented with a Wreath of Flowers. Having always viewed the presentation of Flowers with some askance i Felt a twinge of foreboding when Jimmy allowed prexy Gilliam to slip the Flora around his Sunburst neck. It have impressed me except that the Wreath was in the shape of a a Horseshoe. I done to like the idea of starting a manager off with a Horseshoe. It looks too much like a a Here a Luck you re Gonna need judging from Ray Lindsey a near mid season form and the Well rounded club presented by the mommies Jimmy Isnit going to need any too much Luck. But i still done to like the Horseshoe idea. Evidently mayor Dave Long was looking Forward to the primaries making a cracking Good Campaign speech with All the embellishments even going so far As too take a crack at the sportswriters.
