Developing Story: Donkey Baseball

Those of you who are not following @ncnewspapers on Twitter are missing out on a riveting story from Southern Pines from 1935.  A week ago today we Tweeted:
Southern Pines, NC — 5/10/1935:
Firemen, Kiwanians to Try Donkey Baseball.
And then today we reported an unfortunate development in the story:
Southern Pines, NC — 5/17/1935:
No Donkeys, So Donkey Baseball Game Is Off.  

 

No further explanation was given other than “the donkeys can’t come on Saturday.”  I’ve pasted the two full articles below.  Needless to say, we’ll continue to follow this story and report any updates as we get them.
