Mt Pleasant high school footballers moved back into Little Six competition this week competit.on of the toughest kind in Iowa schools of their size according to the experts.
The panthers’ tittle Six opponent Friday evening will be Muscatine on the Muscatine field. The Musk.es with a defeat and a victoiy in the league ar1 not to be treated lightly thi.-> ear. It v ill take all the resources of the Pan th ei s to eke out a victory. The Mt. Pleasant boys are proud of their victory over Bloomfield last week, but ar" aware that Muscatine is likely a little tougher than the Bloomfielders.
Cap* Leon Marshall, out of the Bloomfield game, because of poison ivy is much improved, but Won t be able to play this week. He probably will be back for the game next week Coach Ekstrand probably will use the 1 me lineup which started against BU omfield.
Washington, D. C ? I NS > —The Ad-minrtration's ten and one .half billion dollar 'ax urogram revealed only three day. ago appeared as dead as the proverbial door nail today, with . the hop*- for its adoption virtually at the vanishing poi For the second day ecdnomI stab-il.ze: Fred M. Vn.son appeared before' the ways and means committee to testify, but it was increasingly evi-' dent that his efforts to save the urogram had failed
Much of his testimony today was directed to offsetting .sentiment on 'he committee for a sales tax indicating that the adminstration has finafly j realiz'd the hople:. .ness of its position, and decided to launch a counter attack against a form of taxation the president repeatedly has denounced.
An eighth inning rally led fey Johnny Linden, former Henry count’.- resident and relative of the L’ndel’s of north Henry county, gave *he New York Yankees a 6 to 2 victo y over St. Louis this afternoon.
The Yankees were trailing 2 to I when Linden came to bat. He hit a single which ’urned into a double on an error. Later as he ra°ed to third, he collided with Kurowski, was called out for an instant and then when the umpire saw the ball rolling away from Kurow fti was declared safe at third He later scored and was followed by f'l’r of hts mates, making it 6 ?o 2 Linden had received praise earlier in the game when he got under the ball for a 430 foot drive that would have been a homerun in most of the ball parks. In the New- York park, how--ever. Walker wa sable to get out under the ball and c ‘Ught it.
Converted from a pitcher to an outfielder this year, Linden has played good ball, but his batting had cooled considerably since the start of the season He has many friends in the county. He has spoken at the KiwanLs club here the last two .ears at the conclusion of the ball season Two years ago he was a member of the Newark club and last year was on the Yankee pitching staff.
The game today put the Yankees out in front two to one. The series will be resumed next Sunday in St. Louis.
