CONWAY — Going after the with a determination not to allow the visitors to make a clean sweep of the series, the State Normal defeated Ouachita, 4 to 1, in the final contest at Hendrix park yesterday afternoon. The Pedagogues showed a remarkable reversal of form, playing an almost perfect game in the field and bunching their hits effectively. Landers pitched splendidly. While allowing more hits than Sammons, he kept them scattered in all except the eighth, when the visitors made their lone tally. The Ouachita infield was unsteady. H. Muse, their first-baseman, accumulated four errors.

Ouachita … 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 — 1 8 7

Normal …… 1 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 x — 4 5 2

Batteries — Normal, Landers and Sipe. Ouachita, Sammons and Easterline. Umpire — Parker.

The Ouachita team left this morning (April 11) for Russellville, where after two games with the Second District Agricultural School, they go to Cumberland and to Fayetteville to play the Razorbacks.

On account of the unsettled weather, Coach Nixon of the Normal canceled the games today (April 11) and tomorrow with Cumberland College. This team has been playing at Batesville and passed through Conway today on their way home.
