The house on Maiden Lane recently SUNRISE EASTER SERVICE An interesting unannounced feature of the sunrise Easter service at Buena Vista Park was the presence in the tree tops of quite a number of small birds, which, previous to the commen- cement of the service, were twittering away and hopping from branch to branch. With the first notes of the sunrise bugle call the little feathered songsters becatne very quiet--both in voice and action. Seldom during the several features of the service, did they move or chirp. We wonder did they wonder at it all? Did they ap- preciate the music? VelDs clouds hid the smiling face of the sun as it arose from behind the hills fringing the mainland desert-- but at 5:22 the Boy Scouts bugle call (sounded by John Shields) announced that the orb of day had started on its westward way. The male quartette, composed of Messrs. Carver, Heywood, Holmes anti Renfroe, sang "The Lord of Life is Risen Again," by Fairbanks, in a very impressive way. Displaying superior baseball in all departments of the game, the Cubs defeated the highly toutedLincoln Heights Merchants, 10 to 2. The Cubs performed like a major league ball club. Inside baseball is in- dispensable in the making of winning baseball machines, and the lecal nine proved it by enforcing tricky hit and run plays which indicate "heads up" playirg. Kenny in Rare Form Jim Kenny, formerly of the Chicago Cubs, hurled brilliant ball, holding the opposition to four scattered hits dur- ing the five innings he occupied the mound. He convinced the critics that he possessed natural stuff by throwing a fine assortment of curve l;,alls which completely baffled the Merchants. Af- ter attaining a comfortable lead Kenny retired in favor of Gould, who also purchased by Tom Mix has been Rev. LaRue C.
