54      HORSESHOE PITCHING ---- HOW TO PLAY THE GAME

on, giving the score card to the score keeper for that court. He continues to call the games in this way consecutively, according to the schedule and order of the score cards that have been made out, as fast as courts are empty.      For information of the crowd in National tournaments, a blackboard, giving the name and score of each player is kept at each court, the score being changed at the end of each inning. Score sheet men should see that these blackboard scores always agree with their score sheet record.
     After a game is finished, the score keeper records on the score sheet, in the proper place, the total number of points, ringers, double ringers, and shoes pitched by each contestant The score sheet is then checked over by the head score keeper to see that no error has been made, and each result marked with a check mark as it is verified. If an error is found a mark is drawn through the incorrect result and the correct figures written down. Each score sheet is marked on the left end with the number of the winner, in good-sized figures, with a red lead pencil, and on the right end with the number of the loser.
     The record of the game is then entered in a book under the name of both the winner and loser. The names of the players in alphabetical order having been arranged on separate pages in a book, ruled for this purpose-a loose-leaf book is somewhat handier.
In order to show exactly how this is done, I am reproducing the book records for the first day of the finals in the
Women's Tournament at St. Petersburg, Fla., in February, 1927:
