Whiz Five to Clash with Peerless Foe

Camden Courier-Post – November 12, 1930

Industrial League Starts Pennant Scramble at Convention Hall Annex Tonight

All the tension connected with advance preparations will subside at 8 o’clock tonight when two of the eight teams in the Camden County Industrial League start the race for the 1930 championship. The opening event will be a clash between R.M. Hollingshead and the Peerless Kid Quintets and the action will be served as a preliminary feature to the Eastern League contest at the Convention Hall annex.

The Hollingshead outfit, winner of the Industrial baseball diadem during the past summer, will make another bid for a silver trophy to add to the collection which Manager Jim Space and his laboring athletes are making. A large number at employees of the Whiz concern have reserved seats and the battle is expected to lure several hundred early fans to the Civic shed.

Sam Price, fair-haired pilot of the Peerless band, will send a staff of rugged shooters into the skirmish. Johnny Albrecht, midget forward, is to be paired with “Cas” Kopec in the offensive department, while “Rap” Price is due to jump center, with Marion Bretschneider and George Willis stationed in the backfield.

Against this cast Manager Space will probably have Wallace “Reds” Sheehan, Larry Higgins, John “Kip” Evans, Henry Engal and Ollie Guthrie. This may not be the Whiz starting lineup, for Rudy Lodgek, Frank Falton, Carleton Peacock, John Flynn and Jim Dalton rate as a capable corps of recruits. –

In order that no delay may be encountered, the rule governing the scheduled starting time at 8 p. m. will be rigidly enforced.

Following tonight’s “opener” the six other clubs in the circuit will await the first of the weekly three-game matinee bills on Saturday. Haddon Craftsmen meet Warren Webster at 2 p.m. while RCA Photophone and Radio Condenser clash one hour later and Camden Coke battles Cities Service in the windup event.
