Finally learned thai the hissing was not a sign of disgust! or displeasure, but simply a signal for us to stop talking. Our boys continued to talk, as we. were asked to play ball as we did in America. In tlu1 seventh inning our rivals shov- ed a run across the plate, thus tic in a; the score. From then on a gallant I battle Japs determined to i prove that they were our equal, and we were equally anxious not to be beaten at our own same. For twelve more innings the ecore stood one to i one, when in the last half of the uiue- i teenth the little fellows scored ano- tlier run, ihus ending the longest game ever played in the land of the j rising sun. The spectators tiled out j of the park in silence, but with a sat- isfied expression. Out of a series oi eight games we won four. learned later that the reason the Japanese objected to our talking on the field was due to the fact that it is the teaching, or rather the spirit, of Shintoism to remain quiet and ex- pressionless iu all contests, either ath, letic or on the battlefield. The idea of silence is also harbored by the Bri- tish in their game of cricket, wh ch PROFESSIONALS WON CALLIES WON EASILY Maeleod Team Made Pretty Good Showing Defeated the A. O. F.
