The Truckers won a close game from the league leading Mechanics, last Thursday night by a score of 4 to?. The inability of the Mechanics to hit Purlret was the cause of their dvwnfall. They only secured two hits while the Truckers were collectin4g eight. This loss placed the Mechanics in a tie for first place with the Ramblers and the game between these two teama'to- d be s with the Prima road out of Lincoln. Thus will Lake Fork's arena of a year 'round road be realized before snow flies and winter roads keep them iwisted from the rest of the world. The next step will be pulling Corn- land out of the mud with an exten- sion of this same kind of a road.
