Black Diamond Doings

Camp to possess model ball park

Final touches have now been put on the Black Diamond baseball park, which will make it one of the finest diamonds outside of the league parks. Grass seed has recently been planted on the infield, and two new dugouts have been built, and in addition the whole field has been carefully gone over and put in A-1 shape for the season.

The recent sunshine has brought out the baseball aspirants, and judging from the early work-outs Black Diamond will have a wealth of material from which to build up a first class ball team this season.

New uniforms have been ordered, of a solid grey color, with the company trade mark on the left breast and an orange diamond with a black letter “B” on black caps. The socks are black and white. The uniforms are on display this week in the windows of Piper & Taft in Seattle. (more…)

Thanksgiving Day is distinctly American. If those who established this institution had not been truly grateful to Divine Providence for the meager store of provisions wrung from a barren shore and hostile land, would we today who dwell in abundance have cause to render homage to the Pilgrim’s God?

It is for us, then, not to raise our voices in paeans of praise for the lavish blessings in which we revel today, but rather, to be humbly grateful for the heritage of Thanksgiving. Thus the nation today can sing its grateful praise to Him who guided the footsteps of that freedom-loving band who bequeathed to us America! (more…)
