Donna Piper, league president, said the league opener will be at 2:30 p.m. or as soon after a game between two teams in the men's Slo- Pitch league has been com- pleted. That game begins at I p.m. and should be over in time for the ladies' play to begin at 2:30. Meeting in this first game will be the Harpers Ferry Realty girls and the "Smokies." Then after two teams of the men's slow-pitch league play the second game of the Men's League doubleheader, the other two teams in the Women's League will take over at 5:30 and round out the Ladies' l.e~gue doubleheader. Meeting in this game will be the CCC Riders and the Brothers of Harmony. President Piper said league action will take place weekly from Monday through Thur- sdays with the Ladies' and Men's Leagues alternating in the playing of games under the lights at the Leetown Park. Mrs. Piper said the reason for the delay in getting publicity out on the opening and play of the Shenandoah Valley Ladies' League was that one team had dropped out at the last minute and another had to be found. Other officers of the league are: Sandy Taylor, vice- president; Francine Kidrick, secretary and Betty Braxton, treasurer.
