A game of baseball between the Star Corner boys and the Dewhurst nine was an attraction on the Corner Sunday.  The game was played on the Robert Teatz field and drew a large crowd which showed its appreciation of the game by rooting enthusiastically for the home team.  The Dewhurst boys in all their glory started the game by putting in five scores in their half of the first inning, but rattled by this start were unable to do more during the remainder of the game than to add one score to this while the Star Corner boys, believing in the old saying of "more haste, less speed" kept plugging along, brining in a total of eight scores, thus winning the game by a total of 6 to 8.  They will repeat the performance on the Dewhurst diamond in the near future.
