The Grands put up the highest pin average, but failed to v in the majority of the games. '.The first game was closely con- tested. the Grands lost out in tne closing frames by a margin of i.3 pins. There was'nothing to the second game but the Grands, and they won out by seventy pins. Both ttams dropped down in the final game, but the Laronas were winners 26 pins The bowling of McBr'lde, of the Laronas was the feature of the ser- ies.
