THE MONROE MONITOR CONSOLIDATED WITH THE MONROE INDEPENDENT JANUARY 5, 1923 TWENTY-SEVENTH YEAR MONROE, SNOHOMISH COUNTY, WASHINGTON FRIDAY, JULY 31, 1925 NUMBER 20 MONROE 2 ARLINGTON 8 The Unexpected Happened At Arlington, Sunday, Due In Part To Smith's Somewhat Erratic Delivery. The Monitor would like to have a different story to tell this week would like to be able to transpose the above figures, in other words, would like to be able to tell how Monroe did the business that won the game, but it seems it can't be done. There is no team, however, that wins every game, and really there would be no sport in such a monotony of successe and so a little diversity now and then scatters the good things of baseball life, runs, and also spread out the sunshine of the sport so that all concerned will more nearly mea- sure up on the percentage column. As it is, Monroe stands second, and with next Sunday's game to conjure on our boys, have a chance to finish in good place at least. The team as a whole played well, and Smith, who throws a classy ar- t ticle of ball, somewhat outdid his' capacity in the way of control last Sunday, which was a good deal re- sponsible for the result as shown in' the summary. Pitchers, like other sportsmen of the diamond, have their off days, and so it was with Smith, ! who even at that struck out three men to Thomsen's one, permitted three men to take first, while Them- sen allowed two to do so. Monroe's error list totaled three to Arlington's one, and sometimes these are costly, i Arlington played well all thru. A! fine double play was made by Mon- roe, Coo Malone to Roe Malone. i Next Sunday's game will be played at Monroe, with Granite Falls the topnotcher of the league as the con- tender, and this is going to be a real hot affair, and if it's at all in the cards, Monroe is going to win, must I win, and the fans will be there to help them do it.

The attendance was large, the day from the weather standpoint, and the bill of events, and then the wonderfully fine store of good things to eat, the ch.cken dinner especially, all conspir- ed toward the full rounding out of a perfect day of entertainment, pleasures of various kinds, and then the good fellowship developed by such reunions of community members, within and outside the realms of the Grange organization.

The Monroe Monitor is in receipt of the following from Mrs. Nellie U..

The affair, which each year is .sponsored by the Board of Build- ing Trustees, is the most important social event in the fed'eration's cal- endar during the smmer months. This year Mrs. H. E. Maltby, newly elected president of the state feder- ation, will be the guest of honor, and club women of nearby cities have been invited to attend and meet her. Cards, mah jong and fortune tell- ing will serve to interest the guests for the early part of the afternoon, which will conclude with a program of interpretive dancing, vocal music and a talk by Mrs. Maltby. As in the past there will be booths for ice cream, cakes, punch, .sandwiches candy and coffee. Mrs. David Fryer, general chair- man, expects a record breaking at- Rev, And Mrs. E. D.

Dear Sir: I have not forgotten your request for a line or two for the Monitor. I am enclosing a little sketch of our wanderings, and if you White says. "When we left Monroe on the C. M. & St. P. railway, the trip across the country was very fine. The scenery of the Cascade and Rocky Mountains was especially delightful. The entire country seemed to be look- ing its very best. Great crops of hay and grain were being harvested, and the fields of corn looked very prom- ising. Illinois and Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North and South Dakota, showed us a land of plenty, a land of diversified farming and stock raising, and one dotted with beautiful cities, many of which are great manufactur- ing centers. We were highly favored as to weather throughout our eastern trip, indeed when riding in the open observation car one needed an over- coat. W'e were fortunate in other respects, also. The earthquake in Montana, which covered the C. M. & St. P. railway tracks with great rocks and depths of earth, occurred shortly after we had passed, and the teriffic storm which struck Minneapolis, un- roofing great buildings and twisting houses from their foundations, we luckily escaped. We spent' a couple of days in Minneapolis, visiting our son, Dr. Willard D. White, and meet- ing Willard D. Jr,, a very promising young fellow one month old. We are now spending a couple of weeks with our daughter, in New London, Conn.; here the breezes from the salt water keep the air fresh and cool. There are exceptionally fine beaches for bathing and the sands are nearly as fine and white as flour. We find it very agreeable and refreshing to take a dip in the briny deep nearly every day.
