City Crowded By 3,000
The American Legion provided a host of thrills for a crowd of more
than 3,000 that thronged the square at Livingston and the Hargrove
field on the Fourth of July. The principle attractions of the day
were the air circus and the baseball game. The outstanding feature
of the air show was a parachute jump by C.L. Carmack from the height
of 2,000 feet. The baseball game was between the Holsum team and
the Livingston team. Livingston won bunching 14 hits for 11 runs
against the 12 hits and 10 runs amassed by the bread boys.
