Riding on the top of an unde- feated record and having whipped the leading contender, Middle- town, too much confidence in the winning f the first undisputed baseball crown in years was prob- ably one of the causes of the clown fall of the locals. Lolling allowed only two hits after the first inning when the lo- cais scored two runs. Hartsburg went on a scoring spree in the 5th and 6th innings to score two runs in each. Mt.
