The ball game last Sunday between the Sheridan Elks and the Gillette ball team on the local grounds, resulted in another victory for Gillette, the score being seven to 10. Our boys are now putting up the real quality of ball and are winning as easily as they lost in the opening games of the season, much to the pride not only of the boys but Gillette people. Next Sunday they will cross bats with Sheridan’s strongest aggregation of ball players the Miners. The game is called for three o’clock.

An urgent call for 35mm colored slides of antelope hunting and the annual Mixer Day barbecue in Gillette was made this week by the Campbell County Chamber of Commerce. D. A. “Kelly” Swenson, secretary, said that the pictures will be used in publicizing this area on a TV program offered by KTWO, Casper. Date of the program was not announced. The pictures are needed as soon as possible, it was emphasized. Scenes of antelope in the field, or of successful hunters posing with their antelope kill can be used. The Mixer Day barbecue has been held for four years during the county fair and shots from any one of them would be good.
