BACK IN TIME
MAY 4, 1954
The Augusta Rams baseball team will be out of business by the end of May unless attendance at home games picks up sharply at once, President Jack Connell of the local baseball club said yesterday.
Mr. Connell, revealing that the club failed to meet its semimonthly payroll on April 30, painted a dreary picture of decreasing attendance and accumulating debts that will surely force the club to the wall.
"We are not asking for sympathy or charity," Mr. Connell declared. "We are presenting a good brand of baseball that is worthy of support."

Here are some ways to help children learn about the world of work, from Ellen Galinsky's book Ask the Children.
In a test, athletes ran faster, had stronger hand grips and did more pushups when they smelled peppermint than when they didn't.
Peppermint did not, however, help free-throw shooting.
