The Southern Democrat, July 3, 1930

Picnic at Cleveland Fourth of July

The Blountsville Band is taking its “Daily Dozen” putting on the finishing touches to the music. The Lehigh, Snead, and Cleveland baseball clubs are getting in good shape to put on a real game. The candidates are reviewing their notes for their talks. The Parent-Teachers Association has everything to keep you from getting hungry and thirsty.

The candidates who have asked to speak: Watt T. Brown, candidate for Governor; W.G. Rains, candidate for Solicitor; E.G. Pilcher, candidate for Solicitor; Thos. Knight, candidate for Attorney General; A.C. Herzberg, candidate for Congress; Bart Cowart, candidate for Senate.

The ballgame will begin at 2 p.m. Come! Tell your friends!

Nectar defeats Lehigh 6-3; Cleveland beats Brooksville 11-2

Nectar won a hard-fought battle from Lehigh Saturday behind the masterful pitching of Slab Wynn, who allowed only six hits, and the excellent fielding of Red Garren, who handled himself around third like a veteran. Wynn struck out 10 Lehigh batters and had the game’s only home run himself.

Blackwood pitched up to form by allowing only five hits in seven innings and got home runs from teammates Hunt (shortstop) and Adams (third base) for Cleveland.

Lehigh and Snead play here July 4 and both games should be thrillers. Fans will have the chance to see two ex-league ball players in Camp from Snead and Statham from Lehigh.
