COULDN'T PLAY SUNDAY BALL; BOY RUNS AWAY
His father wouldn't let him play ball on Sunday, so he left home.
That's the story told by Franky Huff, 15-year-old boy who lives near Montpelier, N.D., 30 miles south of Jamestown.
Franky got off the train at midnight last night and was taken into custody by [Bismarck] Chief of Police Matineson. His father had called from Jamestown saying the boy was on the train. The father arrived by automobile this morning and after a heart to heart talk the two went back home.
The boy had been driving a cultivator, and left it and the team in the yard when he left home. The horses, left alone, ran away, dashing into a wire fence and injuring one of them. The father has opposed Sunday baseball.
