They are representative University
men and have made most favorable
impressions, both as ball players
and gentlemen, wherever they have
appeared. ,
The first game occurred at Lei
ingtonKy cagainst the Kentucky
State University nine. Seymour
occupied the box for the U. of M.,
while the champion twirler of the
Blue Grass country, Conover, pitch-
ed for the Kentuckians. The ame
was hotly contested. At first the
4yellow and blue" swung low, but
Michigan's heavy batters came to
the rescue in the latter part of the
game and won with flying colors.
Score, 9 to 5. The features of
Michigan's playing were Crawford's
home run drive, timely hits by
Spitzer, Rich and Pearson, and the
fielding of Smeltzer, Spurney and

On Monday, at Danville, Kr ,
the team met and defeated the Ce -
ter College nine to the sweet tune
of 18 to 4. This is the first defeat
suffered by the Center nine in five
years. Michigan placed Banks, her
regular pitcher, in the box. He
proved a puzzler to the Kentuckians,
allowing them but three hits off his
delivery. Chinn, whose expenses
in college are defrayed by the ath-
letic authorities, twirled the sphere
for "Old Kentuck." About 700
people, many of whom were Ken-
tucky belles, took advantage of the
beautiful day and inspired our boys
to win a notable victory. Jefferis,
"the finely proportioned," was par-
ticularly moved, for he led the hit-

The teaui proceeded thence to
Louisville, equipped to play the
"Stars" of that city,, but a recent
fire had destroyed the grand stand,
and the game was reluctantly de-
clared off.
The team arrived in St. Louis
'Tuesday night. The next morning
they discovered that the St. Louis
Browns-Michigan game was the talk
of the town, but it was foreordained
that the game should not be played;
rain and snow on Wednesday and
Thursday rendering necessary the
abandonment of the most notable
attraction of the entire trip.
At Champaign, Ill., the team re-
mained inactive all day Friday,
waiting for the storm to cease. The
following day, Saturday, Providence
was more kindly disposed, and al-
though a little snow fell and the
pay was cold, the most interesting
game of the trip was played with the
University of Illinois nine. The
"Suckers" have a strong aggrega-
tion of ball tossers this year, they
having recently defeated the Wash-
ington, (Mo.) University and
Wabash College nines. The score
was 5 to 5 in the eighth inning. In
the ninth an Illinoisan inadvertantly
muffed a fly from Rich's bat when
the'bases were filled and two men
were out, thus allowing Michigan to
score the winning run. Banks
pitchet for two innings, allowing
his opponents but one hit and no
runs. Being hit on the finger by a
batted ball, he was obliged to retire
at the close of the second. Krog-
man then went in the box and per-
mitted the Illinoisans to make but
four hits. Crawford was credited
with three base hits. Rich made a
brilliant catch of a hot liner and
Spurney sacrificed a put-out for a
clever double play.
In the game with Purdue yester-
day our team calcimined the Hoosi-
ers, vice versa football, by a score
of 18 to o. Base hits off Seymour
and Irogman were as young ladies
in thne p. g. law class.
