T*hey are two good ball  clubs and whichever goes to  the play-offs is certainly deserving of it. I will have the  league standing for next week*  At the time of writing the  outcome of the Firemen- Pen-  ; der protest appeal is still not  known - to me anyway.  It was a hard struggle 7 but  Jim MacDonald, once pride of  the Yonkees pitching staff, is  back in the majors with the  Chicago White Sox. By selling  him the Vancouver Mounties  hopes of getting out of the PCL.  basement are somewhat dimmer but it could'nt happen to  a nicer guy and it also gave  the Mounties some working  capitol.  The '56 edition of the Vancouver Lions should be something to watch and who knows,  maybe they will make the  play-offs.  The Marine Men's Wear  "Most Popular Player of the  Year" ballot will appear next  week, so pick your player.

BLACKBALL  Mops hear  m titterings  Mutterings have been heard  among members of the Kiwanis club and it appears  the gauntlet flung down by  the Mops for a ball game is  tlie basis.  Kiwanis members   arc    of  two minds about a    possible  tussle with the Mops oh the  ball diamond. They look back  to the last   game   last   year  when they  just nosed out a  meagre victory over a    team  of    Mops   that saw    victory  snatched from     them in the  final moments. They also remember    the    morning   after  when the aches and pains re^  quired  careful  consideration.
