BACK IN TIME

APRIL 1, 1923

Augusta fans will have the opportunity to see some sure enough big-time baseball at Warren Park on Saturday when Ty Cobb's Tigers meet the St. Louis Cardinals.

This will be the first occasion upon which the two big league clubs have played in this city in years and years, and the game is therefore an event in local baseball history.

The game will mark the climax of the Tigers' training season, and will be the last chance that Augusta will have to see the Detroit entry for 1923.

BETTER BURGERS

Instead of topping a hamburger with iceberg lettuce, try spinach for a quick boost of folate and vitamins A and C. After all, a study by the University of Arkansas found that few taste testers noticed the difference.

REALTOR TIPS

Top five things you should know about choosing a Realtor:

  • Look for an agent who is a member of the local board or association of Realtors.
  • An agent should explain and disclose his role and who he represents at the serious first contact.
  • The agent should advise you on how to prepare your home for the market.
  • Be sure the professional shows enthusiasm, listens well, instills confidence and has a personality that is complementary to yours.
  • The agent should have already researched the property and be able to provide data on nearby homes that have or have not sold recently.
  • PEANUT BUTTER ALERT

    Peanut butter has health benefits, but not if you choke on it. Eating peanut butter straight from the spoon can cause children and adults to choke. So don't do it.
