Mgnj CUMMINGS XIVATERMAN DRUMMOND CARROLL QCapt.j GERBER Cris BARTLEY aselballl The prospects of the baseball season of 1911 were excellent and the team came up to all expectations and won Hopeis fourth successive pennant. The team lost Captain Guild and McGovern by graduation, but there remained Parsons, Waterman, Gerber, Brice, Hickey, Virgin, MacLeod, and Carroll of the champion 1910 team. Harry Carroll was elected captain of the 1911 team and when he issued his call for candidates nearly thirty men responded. As our first game was on the 8th of April the squad was quickly thinned out and the following team lined up against Inter Nos: MacLeod, pg Carroll Qcaptj c. 5 Parsons, 1st 5 Hickey, Otis, Zd, Waterman, 3d, Gerber, s. s., Virgin, l. f., Brice, c. f., Rogers, Bartely, r. f. 5 substitutes: Shea, Brown, Drummond, Lewis, and Bagley. We defeated Inter Nos by a score of 10-4. Bryant and Stratton and Moses Brown were next to taste defeat at our hands by the score of 8-7 and 3A1, respectively. Then came our first league game with our old rival, Technical. Here we received the surprise of the season for we were beaten by a score of 7-4. MacLeod allowed only three hits but the fielding behind him was ragged, and thus we began one of our most prosperous seasons with a defeat. We made up for this defeat by beating Cranston 1-4. English and Classical were next to find we had begun our championship stride and succumbed by scores of 3-1 and 12-2 in order. 'We then journeyed to Newport and defeated St. - 1 1

The greatest step forward has been made this year when the debt was reduced from 34,000 to nothing. A friend who had given 3100 promised 951,000 on the condition that the rest of the debt be collected by January first, and it is through the never-tiring Work of Mr. Dennis that the amount Was raised. The next proposition is the track Plans have been made and it was found that a quarter-mile track could be built on the field. Along With the plans for the track are more plans. Plans to build a hockey rink, plans for beautifying the field with trees and Well kept lawn, plans for sanitary buildings, and still more plans to make the Hope Street High School Athletic Field the best school Held Within miles. So Juniors, Sophomores, Freshmen, and those to come, you see that there is still a place for loyalty. The annual athletic play was voted by all to be the funniest and most successful play ever given at Hope. The title was "Me an' Otis." Those who took part Were: Dick Davis, a student at Hale college, fond of football and girls. George YV. Waterman. Byron Makepeace Thornton, his room-mate, not fond of football and girls. Frederick A. Ballou, Jr. Betty Tewksbury, Otis' daughter . . . . Elizabeth H. Walker. Florence Follet, Betty's city friend . . . . Elizabeth J. Aldrich. Sophronia Ruggles, F lorenee's maiden aunt . . , Doris Field. Rosilla Tewksbury of' Perkinsville, Wife of Otis . Vera Stockard. Otis Tewksbury of Perkinsville, Betty's father . . H. Russell Burbank. Sam Scullyan, TeWksbury's hired man ..., George H. Pickering. Reginald Thomas, A young man of fashion . . Russell M. WVilson. Mary Cooper, a friend ........ Emma E. Nye. Betty Tewksbury, While visiting Florence in the city, is invited to visit her friend, Dick Davis, at college, and Witness a great football game. Betty and Florence come, chaperoned by Miss Ruggles. They are entertained by Dick's room-mate While Dick takes part in the game. Dick thinks Betty's friend charming, and before the first act ends, his room-mate acknowledges that he thinks Betty quite interesting. In the second act, Florence is visiting Betty, in the country. Dick and his friend are also in the country, and Dick Writes to Florence to meet him at a certain place, While Byron does the same thing in regards to Betty, thinking that he can deceive Dick. All four meet, and many funny incidents occur. In the fourth act, the Tewksburys have moved to the city, and on this particular night are holding a reception. Mr. and Mrs. Tewksbury caused a great deal of amuse- ment in their evening dress, and then there is a dance and everybody lives happily ever after. " Waterman and Ballon carried out their parts remarkably Well as did Misses Walker and Aldrich. Miss Field made a capital chaperone, and Miss Stockard was an excellent head of the family. Burbank and Pickering furnished the amusement, keeping the audience laughing while they were on the stage. Although Miss Nye and Wilson took only minor parts, each one appeared to advantage. The committee of arrangements was Frederick A. Ballou, Jr., H. Russell Burbank, and Harry A. Carroll. Great credit is due Miss Slack for the undisputed success of our athletic play. 10

George School in an eleven-inning game by a score of 7-6. East Providence and Woon- socket were easily disposed of and then came our next important game with Pawtucket. Aided by MacLeod's masterly pitching we defeated our ancient rivals by a score of 2-0. The season was now half over but we were soon to fall. Technical, Cranstonf and La Salle were defeated and then we gave East Providence a terrible coat of whitewash, scoring 14 runs to their O. Flattered by our great showing we went to Pawtucket and, in a game in which the umpire was the star attraction, we were defeated by a score of 741. This defeat necessitated a play-off of the tie which now existed between Hope and Pawtucket. Melrose Park was chosen as the battle-ground. On the day of the game over 2,500 people gathered to witness the game. The brilliant pitching of Mac- Leod won a 7-1 victory for us and the pennant is now hung near the clock in the hall. The three leading men in fielding were: Carroll Ccaptj, Waterman, and Brice. In batting: Wate1'1nan, Gerber, and Parson.
