(June 24)  Victoria Orphans vaulted into a tie for first place with Chemainus Red Sox sweeping both ends of a double-header from Duncan at Royal Athletic Park while the Sox were splitting with Dairy Queen at Chemainus.

George Holt twirled a two-hitter in the first game for the Orphans and helped on offense with two hits in a 6-2 victory. He fanned ten.  Orphans took the second game 9-1 and again it was a pitcher who came up with the top showing at the plate. Stan Smith, who relieved starter Des Moseley in the fourth inning, had three hits, one of them for two bases.  At Chemainus, Dairy Queen dropped the opener 9-2 to the Sox but came back to cop the second game 10-6.
