Boys Gave Way to Their Seniors With Last Friday morning through a mis- understanding two ball games had been scheduled for the same time at the Mounted Police grounds. The C. R. freight office employees were doped- to play the Medicine Hat em- iloyees. Another game had been planned between the Knox and Wes- ey Sunday School League teams. Al- :hough the younger boys had equal rights to .the ground, they extended the courtesy to.the visiting team from Medicine Hat, and postponed their game until later on In the morning.
