Lewiston High by defeating Leavitt Institute Saturday afternoon by the score of 6 to 3 on the Auburn Athletic Park is now considered the winner of the pennant offered by the Bowdoin Interscholastic Baseball League by the high school supporters. The game was a peculiar one. It was full of interesting plays and the excitement was intense throughout. Both teams made bad errors, fielding superbly at other times while both also had streaks of good hitting.

Eli Roy, a Lewiston contractor, will soon begin work about the grounds at the Lewiston Post Office and when he has completed the work, the appearances of the grounds should be very much improved. The driveway which runs around the building will all be paved with paving brick. Beside that a curbing will be placed about the ground while a new sidewalk will be put in. It wil be a cement walk in place of the brick already there.

It’s dad’s turn to be “king for a day.” He’ll get the chance tomorrow – Father’s Day. Dads throughout the country are in for a heap of praise, a bundle of gifts, and just about all the vittles they can handle. It’s the only day of the year when they can do no wrong. From dawn until sunset they’ll live the life of Riley. The favorite pipe, slippers and easy chair will be the order of the day. They’ll get service with a smile. And no one will raise the roof if ashes are dropped on the floor. It only lasts 24 hours but the dads will make the most of it. It’s a good bet they’ll be sporting some new ties on Monday.

Bulldozers moved onto the site of the second phrase of the development of the Union Street gully park Monday, signaling the first step this year in the completion of the project. Norris Ingersoll, superintendent of the Auburn Parks and Recreation Department, said Bridge Construction Co. will complete phase two in the fall.

The project area is between Chestnut and Dennison streets and the cost for this phase of the project is $97,000.

There will be considerable landscaping in the project and a continuation of the walking/jogging paths started in the first phase of the gully park development.

A multi-purpose field will be prepared for soccer, football and field hockey and there will be a small junior softball field for the use of neighborhood youngsters and nearby schools.
