Ethel takes pride in relating the outcome of the supposedly Puyallup vs. Pe Ell softball champion-of-Thurston-county game which was to take place at the Pomona Grange picnic, Sunday, July 21 at the Lewis & Clark park.

When Pe Ell did not show up, it was decided that Ethel make up a team and play Puyallup. The score was Ethel 12, Puyallup 6.
