By expanding the league act- ivities some 150 boys will be play ing Little League ball under the Jefferson Little Baseball League supervision, instead of the 90 some boys of past years. The decision to expand the lea gue was made by League officials at a meeting held Monday night, May 2. At that meeting it was pointed out that more than 100 boys who were of the right age to play little league ball had been turned down because just too many had enrolled for the six. team league. And from a discussion of what to do about the matter came the plan for having two different cir cults of the league, with one cir- cult to be known as the National League and the other the Ameri- can League.
